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.
And it was a symbol of his grandmother impossible expectation of him to be like his father. She made Neville use his father’s wand and was constantly disappointed when he couldn’t get the wand to work properly. And he ended up getting a new wand after his old one was broken at the end of Order of the Phoenix when he fought against the death eaters at the ministry. He found his own courage and ended up becoming his own man.
And it probably contributed to his later success.
Swimmers train with drag suits, big floppy extra fabric that pulls in the water and slows you down. That way when you compete without it, you have an advantage.
Neville trained with a severe handicap and managed to pass his classes along with his unencumbered peers. The moment he was competing on a level playing field, it must have felt like he was defying the law of gravity.
Lily Evans wants none of your shit and even the marauders get a little sick of the epic that is James Potter’s “pursuit” of the love of his life
I am SO, SO EXCITED to share my SVA thesis film at long last!!!!! This is what I spent most of the past year working on. It’s the biggest thing I’ve ever made, and I still couldn’t have done it without the help and support of a bunch of really awesome people. I strongly recommend watching it in HD and I hope you like it a lot! :)

WATCH THIS IMMEDIATELY. Just charming and perfect and lovely and oh I have tears.
#slytherins aren’t evil #slytherins are self-serving #slytherins are loyal to what is THEIRS and theirs alone #if the fact that narcissa malfoy #a slytherin #will LIE to the dark lord about his greatest foe being alive #over the smallest hope of saving her son doesn’t tell you that #then idk how to help you
count yourself honoured if a slytherin decides that you are theirs. they will kill for you. they won’t die for you, because where would be the use in that, but they will do everything else.
Wait, when was Jillian Venters in Harry Potter, and doesn’t she usually wear more pink?
Heh. Heh, heh, heh.
And yes, once a Slytherin decides you are part of their chosen family, you are THEIRS, and they will defend you with any deceit they feel is needed.
The Hogwarts Express is revered by all as an institution of British wizardry, a symbol of one’s coming of age and of the sacred passage from beloved childhood to full-fledged magical adulthood. But rites of passage are by no means unique to Hogwarts.
Half a world away, hopping on and off of lines that otherwise service the Shinkansen, occasionally dropping underwater between Hokkaido and Kyushu, is the train to Mahoutokoro. It makes multiple stops rapid-fire, it employs time turner technomancy to arrive always five minutes early, it has no central platform or candy trolley, and it is charmed to be volcano-proof. And the students adore it.
this makes my heart happy
300 of this year’s films distilled into a 7-minute exploration of the ideas we keep coming back to: the purpose of life, the nature of evil, the mystery of death, the power of love, and the inevitability of time.
Ok Dr. Phil’s wife, Robin, (yes groan, but listen up) has this new app out (iPhone and Android) that’s for people in abusive relationships. It’s called Aspire News and it’s disguised as a regular news app, but when you go to the “Help” section of the app, it leads you to…
another reason this is perfect is because fred died when he was only 20, so he was still in his mischievous part of life while george had to live 60 years without his brother and best friend. So he managed the rest of his life without his brother
