Lupin finding the kids with depression and teaching them Patronuses so the dementors don’t affect them as much
McGonagall keeping a stash of chocolate all of Harry’s third year because she knows which kids will be most affected by the Dementors and also which kids she can bring into her office with that excuse because they’re having a breakdown
Hogwarts teachers desperately trying to make sure all their students with depression avoid the Dementors
Alternately, the kids with depression being the first to face off against a Dementor because they know all the tricks.
The kids with depression defending the other kids when one passes by because they know how to function in the grey.
The kids with depression having the biggest, gaudiest patronuses because they have power.
They’ve already learned how to survive a Dementor long before they had magic.
Did some fanart of the Buffster while watching her dust some vamps last night!
For those of you that maybe didn’t catch this at the time, when Colin asked who had the most followers at the Tumblr meetup, Mark Oshiro of “Mark Reads/Does Stuff” fame called out his impressive follower count and then promptly crouched down, hid, and mumbled “Why did I do that? I shouldn’t have done that.” It was kind of ridiculously adorable.
a haiku for fictional ladies:
sorry your story
was left in such clumsy hands
i will avenge you
get to know me meme: [1/5] favorite female characters: Lucy Diamond
"She is the last surviving member of the Reynolds crime syndicate. Her family did battle with the Schaffers, in a vicious blood feud that lasted a decade. After her father’s death, she inherited the keys to his kingdom: illegal arms runner, smuggling, gambling, and especially, diamond theft. It is believed Lucy Diamond was behind the plot to sink Australia in ‘99. Three attempts have been made to apprehend her—all failed. In 2003, she went underground and has not been seen or heard from since."
ideal hogwarts students:
- aromantic wizards being absolutely immune to amortentia, it only smelling like the ingredients put into it when they smell it, and teaching other students how to identify the stuff on any food or drink
- gender confused ravenclaw leafing through glossarys of pronouns and accidentally getting 80% of the class to stay up leafing through similar glossarys, screaming out pronouns in the common room when they think they found one that may fit
- slytherin students sometimes taking polyjuice potion to pose as one of their depressed members who was having a bad day and really couldn’t bring themselves to classes
- kids who read about the second great wizarding war and, when reading about Severus Snape’s brave acts, argue “well yeah ok but he was kind of an asshole still?”
