Forever a blog.

Harry Potter. Legend of Zelda. Lord of the Rings. Musical theatre major. Atheist and freethinker. Mild socialist. Food snob. Native Northern Californian. Avid reader. What they'll probably put on my gravestone: "He recognized that being white, cis-gender, and straight gave him undue privilege, and he tried very hard not to be an asshat."

This makes me so emotional. Mrs Weasley knew the Dursleys wouldn’t visit and that Harry’s got no other family and to hER HES PRACTICALLY HER SON SOMEONE HOLD ME

I’m going to say this again: if you don’t love Molly Weasley, then get out of my face.

Today is George Weasley’s 36th birthday. Born 1st April 1978, every year since he lost his brother, this special day just hasn’t been the same. And that, my friends, is what you call the cruelest April Fool’s joke of all time. 

WHY WOULD YOU POST SOMETHING LIKE THIS?

I just realized that Voldemort kept his head shaved so that no one could use his hair for Polyjuice Potion. 

acanerd asked: You are so kind I love you!! <3

I LOVE YOU TOO! <3 Also our lack of Skype makes me sad… but I hope your night turns around your bad day completely!!!<3 HUGS HUGS HUGS.

When Harry comes of age,

Molly Weasley gives him a watch. She tells him it was her brother Fabian’s. Fabian and his brother Gideon were killed by five Death Eaters during the First War; Moody says in The Order Of The Phoenix that “they died like heroes.” 

This means that Molly’s maiden name was Prewett, and that she lost two brothers to the Death Eaters. Can you imagine what kind of painful happiness she must have experienced, giving that old watch to Harry? I think that in some way, that moment represented her finally accepting the loss of her brothers and learning to let them go. Of course, there was another dimension to her mixed feelings; she had always considered Harry to be a son to her, but that moment made it real for her. 

If you’re in the HP fandom and you don’t love Molly Weasley, then I really have nothing to say to you.

"Luna had decorated her bedroom ceiling with five beautifully painted faces: Harry, Ron, Hermione, Ginny, and Neville. They were not moving as the portraits at Hogwarts moved, but there was a certain magic about them all the same; Harry thought they breathed. What appeared to be fine golden chains wove around the pictures, linking them together, but after examining them for a minute or so, Harry realized that the chains were actually one word, repeated a thousand times in golden ink: friends…friends…friends…friends… Harry felt a great rush of affection for Luna" — Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

i love sir patrick stewart more with each passing day.

See, guys. This is how you do it. Notice the words “Not all men are like that” are never spoken.

Oh, Captain…

This, my friends, is what a real Sir does. He doesn’t whine that labeling him as an oppressor is unfair to all the “nice guys.” He says, “I have an unfair amount of privilege for no reason other than an accident of birth, so it’s my responsibility to use that privilege for good.”

Indina Menzel - Do You Want To Build A Snowman Reprise

cuddle-junkie:

blame-it-on-the-love:

If this hadn’t been cut from the movie I’d have been full on bawling in the cinema!

I’m so glad I didn’t get rick rolled again.

When I saw this scene for the first time, the whole audience was holding its breath because we thought Anna might really be gone forever. Suspense and mystery. Yet lots of people keep insisting that there should have been a “Do You Want To Build A Snowman” reprise when Anna turns to ice. 

Do any of you even realize what happens when she freezes completely?

All of the fucking music stops. ALL of it. We get dead silence, except for Elsa’s whimpers. You know why? Anna brought joy into Elsa’s life even though she tried to shut her out. Without Anna, life for Elsa would have no music. Anna was the music in Elsa’s life. Without her, Elsa would never have had the strength to sing. 

And that’s what’s so moving about that hushed, terrified moment - we don’t know if Anna’s ever going to come back. It might really be too late.

Before that moment, all we see is Anna’s love for Elsa, and Elsa pushing her away, culminating with the freezing of Anna’s heart. But once Elsa has finally lost her sister, we realize just how important Anna was to Elsa. More important than her own freedom, more even than her own power (which both terrifies and elates her) was Anna; she the most important thing in her life, and until that moment, she was too afraid to embrace that. 

So in my opinion, a reprise like that would have just been overkill. The fact that Elsa can barely formulate words (let alone sing) in her grief speaks volumes more than any cheesy reprise could have done. I understand the desire for this reprise in general, but in the context of the movie it would just be emotional masturbation, which is inherently non-dramatic. 

Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s still a good song, and the various people who have substituted their new lyrics are good writers; I just think it would be the song Elsa would sing if she had the ability to sing after losing her sister. For Anna, singing is an expression of joie de vivre. In fact, every song in “Frozen” comes from a place of love. So a reprise like this, which would come from a place of deep loss and despair, just wouldn’t fit. Without her sister, Elsa would not have the courage or strength to sing, to embrace joy and love. 

I think the directors knew exactly what the fuck they were doing when they crafted this moment.
