What things from the books did they not mention in the films that you reaaaally wanted to see?

simplypotterheads:

  • Hermione’s, Ginny’s, and Ron’s actual characterizations
  • Harry’s sarcasm
  • "Have a biscuit, Potter."
  • Harry acknowledging his dad in the forest in DH2
  • PEEVES
  • "I see no difference."
  • NEVILLE’S PARENTS, WOW. WOOOOOOOW. We can make time to burn down the Burrow for no reason but not flesh out Neville Longbottom as a character? Ok, Yates and Kloves and everyone else involved in that absolute crap decision. Ok.
  • "He spat at you."
  • THE PART WHERE THE TRIO RETURNS TO THE HEAD’S OFFICE AND ALL THE PORTRAITS CHEER AND DUMBLEDORE/HARRY’S EXCHANGE THERE
  • Lupin and Tonks 
  • Teddy
  • Freaking
  • Lupin
  • Voldemort’s actual (and wonderfully symbolic) death
  • This is just a very short list, I could keep going, but I won’t.

Kym Worthy, the prosecutor who just brought charges against Theodore P. Wafer for shooting Renisha McBride, has a long history of being a total badass:

Prosecutor leads effort to test long-abandoned rape kits, brings justice to victims

Thank you, Kym Worthy

Do you ever think you'll stop drawing fanart? No offense it just seems like the kind of thing you're supposed to grow out of. I'm just curious what your plans/goals are since it isn't exactly an art form that people take seriously.

Ah, fanart. Also known as the art that girls make.

Sad, immature girls no one takes seriously. Girls who are taught that it’s shameful to be excited or passionate about anything, that it’s pathetic to gush about what attracts them, that it’s wrong to be a geek, that they should feel embarrassed about having a crush, that they’re not allowed to gaze or stare or wish or desire. Girls who need to grow out of it.

That’s the art you mean, right?

Because in my experience, when grown men make it, nobody calls it fanart. They just call it art. And everyone takes it very seriously.

It’s interesting though — the culture of shame surrounding adult women and fandom. Even within fandom it’s heavily internalized: unsurprisingly, mind, given that fandom is largely comprised by young girls and, unfortunately, our culture runs on ensuring young girls internalize *all* messages no matter how toxic. But here’s another way of thinking about it.

Sports is a fandom. It requires zealous attention to “seasons,” knowledge of details considered obscure to those not involved in that fandom, unbelievable amounts of merchandise, and even “fanfic” in the form of fantasy teams. But this is a masculine-coded fandom. And as such, it’s encouraged - built into our economy! Have you *seen* Dish network’s “ultimate fan” advertisements, which literally base selling of a product around the normalization of all consuming (male) obsession? Or the very existence of sports bars, built around the link between fans and community enjoyment and analysis. Sport fandom is so ingrained in our culture that major events are treated like holidays (my gym closes for the Super Bowl) — and can you imagine being laughed at for admitting you didn’t know the difference between Supernatural and The X Files the way you might if you admit you don’t know the rules of football vs baseball, or basketball?

"Fandom" is not childish but we live in a culture that commodified women’s time in such away that their hobbies have to be "frivolous," because "mature" women’s interests are supposed to be marriage, family, and overall care taking: things that allow others to continue their own special interests, while leaving women without a space of their own.

So think about what you’re actually saying when you call someone “too old” for fandom. Because you’re suggesting they are “too old” for a consuming hobby, and I challenge you to answer — what do you think they should be doing instead?

I was so surprised to see this picture of Anne Bonny in AC Memories. Did she really become an Assassin? One does not simply have a hidden blade without being a member to the Order. That’s my big question. It would be heartwarming if she did. <3

endless list of favorite characters → katniss everdeen, the hunger games

The bird, the pin, the song, the berries, the watch, the cracker, the dress that burst into flames. I am the mockingjay. The one that survived despite the Capitol’s plans. The symbol of the rebellion.

But that ain’t Jennifer Lawrence? Looks more like Keisha Castle-Hughes.

It’s Q’orianka Kilcher, and I used her as a dreamcast because I always read Katniss as PoC. Jennifer Lawrence is a fine actress, but she’s not at all an accurate representation of the Katniss in my head.

#sometimes i think the casting call was for a white girl because a woman of color raising up an army #and becoming the symbol of the revolution would be too close to social commentary they considered too radical #because we can rage against the patriarchy only if it’s in the future #and we can rage against racism only if it’s in the past #but we can’t rage against both #because that is too close to threatening the status quo of the present (via dealanexmachina)
