NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO.But also YES.Because for me this is a pretty important part of the final battle. A lot of folks accused JKR of just wanting to kill people off, and Lupin and Tonks were one of the major “sins” in that category. But for me, one of the major themes of her books is vicious cycle of violence, and another is the ways ordinary people can break that cycle. It’s important that we know that Harry doesn’t stop all the pain, that he’s not the last war orphan. Just like the first War, parents and adults have to make choices, choices with consequences.Like James and Lily, Lupin and Tonks didn’t risk their lives to defeat Voldemort. They gave their lives for each other, because no one person should bear the weight of the sacrifice. They gave their lives for their son, who deserved a better world. They gave their lives for love, not for victory.I think it’s important to see the ways Voldemort’s evil creates these cycles, children taken from their parents and parents taken from their children, again and again. I think it’s an important sobering note in the victory—yes, this time Voldemort is really dead, but there’s another baby this time, another infant who will never know his beautiful, wonderful parents because of Voldemort and his message of hate and violence. Another child who will grow up wondering where he came from, what his parents were like, what would be different if they were alive.But it’s also beautiful that Teddy will have such a different experience. And his experience will not be different because Voldemort is “really gone.” His experience will be different because his grandmother will tell him about his brilliant mom. Because Harry will tell him about his wonderful dad. Because Harry will help him deal with his pain and loss, be a sympathetic ear who understands what it’s like to grow up without your parents. Because the Weasleys will welcome him as another grandchild, and he’ll grow up with Victoire to throw dirt at, and James as a little brother. His experience won’t be different because Harry won a war, it will be different because of love.That’s the whole story of Harry Potter. Sometimes we have to fight for what’s right, but what really makes life worth living and what really changes the world isn’t magic or power or moral superiority. It’s love.
Aside from this I love Perks, Supernatural, Once Upon a Time, Disney, anime and of course Jonh Green
I ship with all my heart Jilly, Percabeth, Fourtris Clace, Destiel and Peeniss <3
Anyone who reblogs this with a load of text trying to justify their shitty actions is only further proving my point, so I dare you.
I fixed a painfully obvious spelling mistake. Please reblog this version.
I could not agree more
Reblog if you will answer LITERALLY ANY anon questions.
BRING IT ON
ATTACKING SOMEONE FOR BEING WHITE IS NOT EQUALITY
ATTACKING SOMEONE FOR BEING STRAIGHT IS NOT EQUALITY
ATTACKING SOMEONE FOR BEING CIS OR MALE IS NOT EQUALITY
ATTACKING PEOPLE BECAUSE OF THEIR GENETICS IS NOT PROMOTING EQUALITY AND IF YOU DO IT YOU ARE LITERALLY PART OF THE PROBLEM
He puts the book between his teeth, but he doesn’t give it the power to make him cry.
Make John Green find the thing.

I have never thought about it in this context
that’s actually really, really creepy.
I once pointed this out to my mother and she just stared at me, in stunned silence for ages.
There will always be a girl who is less sober, less secure, with less friends walking in a darker part of town. I want her safe just as much as I want me safe.
So those of you who do not know- this is me and my best friend Christian Alberto Sierra. Nearly two months ago Christian was shot and killed by a police officer, who responded to a suicide call. My entire town was up in arms about losing him, but as the second month with him gone comes around, people are forgetting, just as people do. Most of them just wanted to be apart of the hype, which is incredibly disappointing. But i will not let his memory simply be forgotten, and i will not stop until the cop is behind bars. But in the small town i live in, the cops are trying as hard as possible to sweep this ‘indescretion” under the rug. So im coming to you guys, my 3,000 followers and begging you to reblog this. Make him known. Too often lives are taken by the corruptions of our authority. So i ask you please- share this, get his story known.
Thank you all for reblogging so far. Really. It means the world.
Please help Blakey Baby and reblog this!
"We’ll be at Hogwarts in ten minutes," said Professor Lupin. "Are you alright, Harry?"
Harry didn’t ask how Professor Lupin knew his name.
-The first time Lupin addresses Harry by his name
Rereading the books, this interaction breaks my heart. Because the first time you read it, you assume Lupin knows who he is because he’s Harry, and that he recognises his scar or he’s seen Harry’s picture in the papers, maybe. But once you’ve read the books, you know that it’s because Lupin’s seen that face before. Harry looks only a little older than James did when Lupin first met him - he probably still has photographs of the Marauders at that age. Harry looks about the age that James did when he found out that Lupin was a werewolf - a terrible, dangerous, Dark creature - and told Lupin that he didn’t care. He looks exactly like James did when he was a teenager - except with Lily’s eyes.
Lupin recognises Harry because it’s the face of his best friends’ son. He probably held Harry as a baby, not long after he’d been born, with James and Lily smiling happily over him. He probably watched Harry toddle around their house in Godric’s Hollow when he was first learning to walk.
And it reminds Lupin of everything he lost that night when James and Lily died, and Sirius went on the run.
That’s how he knows Harry’s name.

This is actually pretty important
very important information
I just love love love the carefully constructed language here. It’s all about what you can do, because you have choices and options and complete control. It’s not about what you have to do or should do. Such an important distinction for survivors.
I will keep this photo posted for 1 week.
Every time someone Reblogs this photo I will donate 10 cent to charity: water
After the money is donated I will post proof of donation.
Show you care & Reblog.
If you don’t reblog this at least once you’re a joke.
Know the fucking difference.
Feminism is a good thing. Some people (a loud minority of people really) who think they’re feminists are bordering on misandrists - that’s what gives feminism a bad name. They’re not feminists if they put down men while bringing up women. People who hate the feminist movement because it puts down men don’t hate feminism - they hate misandry.
This is actually great to know. I had such a negative look on feminists (even as a woman) and it was because of the misandrists. Not the feminists.
So thank you for sharing.
This blogger will continue to support Supernatural in it’s 10th season.
