Oh god guys. JK Rowling is a genius, and so is this person.
the thing I love about this fandom is that there are 7 books and 8 movies to observe. so every once in a while some blessed soul finds a piece of information that makes all the magic resurface again
Oh Lord…it’s a metaphor too. It’s symbolic of Neville holding on to his past, the horrors of what happened to his parents, of being a passive vessel for that atrocity. As if the terrible thing kept happening and would never stop happening.
When he moves forward and becomes part of his own story instead of the story of his past, his strength surges.

It also shows that if you give a kid the wrong tool, he may be a genius but he’s never going to be able to build something with it.
PSA: Big corporations putting feel good feminist messages in their advertisements wont result in women’s liberation as much as it will result in goading liberal minded folks to buy more shampoo or whatever. There’s no point in fawning over these commercials.

So I get to head up Christmas decor ideas for my church this year and I want to do everything as cheap and DIY as possible, so if you know of any christmas-diy-themed blogs please do let me know :D
I’m getting so excited already!
If you find a woman
with a wild heart
do not try to tame her.
You must adore her
recklessly, the way
she is meant to be loved.
Do not try to quiet her,
for her roars will reach
far and wide.
She has something
important to say.
Help her say it.
Do not get in her way.
She stops for no one.
Do not try to change
the path she has chosen.
Learn also to love the wind
and let it change you.

This particular set doesn’t make the rounds on Tumblr much, probably because it’s a bit darker in tone - I think it drives the point home a lot better.
racism in 2014
Why is there a white guy in this set?
He’s Cajun. Acadians are entitled to “national origin” protection under title VII. Cajun French is a language. There is a distinct society, music, and food in the Cajun community. The representation of Cajuns on tv and in the media are highly derogatory and generally incorrect. The Water Boy is not an acceptable representation of a culture. Shitty, discriminatory reality tv is not an acceptable representation of a culture. There is a racial slur, “coonass” to describe Cajuns that is commonly used in Louisiana and Eastern Texas. Cajuns are seen as backwards, ignorant, superstitious swamp dwellers living in squalor in a moss-draped, reptile-infested wilderness. It’s not accurate. It’s harmful.
