translady jamie potter though
- never learned the “inside voice” rule and consistently booms everything she says and when lily asks her to please be quiet she just grins this cocky grin and says “oh do you find my voice distracting evans?”
- kind of flat-footed and clumsy on land (even though she’s super graceful on the quidditch pitch) and constantly trips over her own feet (she loves lily’s feet bc they’re so dainty and tiny)
- despite this she continues to wear stiletto boots everywhere she can and towers over just about everyone
- sirius is constantly upset because jamie towers over them and like “jamie you’re already six foot two why are you wearing nine inch heels” “because they make my legs look fantastic” “fair point”
- half the students in the school are in love with her and her confidence and her ability to just make the room turn when she walks in
- but she only has eyes for lily evans
THIS SCENE WAS GOLD

LOOK AT HIS EYES THOUGH HE SHOULDN”T BE THIS BEAUTIFUL
So, I saw this gif of some hands gripping each other on a sheet, and I thought it was a really nice way to portray physical intimacy without slapping it in your face. Then I felt the uncontrollable urge to make a homestuck thing out of it. Surprise.
oh this is gorgeous
wow this is absolutely gorgeous omg
Slowly and calmly

Come down here and read this text instead
Follow my voice
Yes, down here, keep reading
Keep scrolling down
Scroll your way out of this
You can do this
It’s going away
Everything is going to be alright
I’m still thinking about it.
Am I the only one who read this in Tom’s voice?
I READ THIS IN TOM’S VOICE. SHEESH
I suppose then that linking to THIS is not going to go down well
According to the captions of the first Thor movie, the battle between the Jotuns and Asgardians take place in Norway, 965 AD. Around this time, Loki was born.
In Thor 2 the life expectancy was stated to be around 5,000. The average human life in developed countries from what I’ve gathered is approximately 82.
Therefore, in human years Loki is somewhere around 17.
That explains the temper tantrum and bitchiness of Loki very well - tail end of puberty, still not feeling alright in his own skin, then suddenly finds out his dad isn’t his dad, that his brother isn’t his brother and that he’s not even Asgardian. Yeah that explains a lot.
A skeleton of a mother, and her baby, who both died during her pregnancy.
this is so fucking cool
how on earth is this cool this is literally the remains of a mother and a child she never even got to see. have some respect smh
its cool because its an intact skeleton within an intact skeleton. sad sure, but still cool, get off the pedestal.
I mean archaeologically speaking this is fascinating and one of the most unlikely things to happen so as an Archaeology student THIS IS COOL AS!
Iceland grieves after police kill a man for the first time in its history
December 5, 2013
It was an unprecedented headline in Iceland this week — a man shot to death by police.
"The nation was in shock. This does not happen in our country," said Thora Arnorsdottir, news editor at RUV, the Icelandic National Broadcasting Service.
She was referring to a 59-year old man who was shot by police on Monday. The man, who started shooting at police when they entered his building, had a history of mental illness.
It’s the first time someone has been killed by armed police in Iceland since it became an independent republic in 1944. Police don’t even carry weapons, usually. Violent crime in Iceland is almost non-existent.
"The nation does not want its police force to carry weapons because it’s dangerous, it’s threatening," Arnorsdottir says. "It’s a part of the culture. Guns are used to go hunting as a sport, but you never see a gun."
In fact, Iceland isn’t anti-gun. In terms of per-capita gun ownership, Iceland ranks 15th in the world. Still, this incident was so rare that neighbors of the man shot were comparing the shooting to a scene from an American film.
The Icelandic police department said officers involved will go through grief counseling. And the police department has already apologized to the family of the man who died — though not necessarily because they did anything wrong.
"I think it’s respectful," Arnorsdottir says, “because no one wants to take another person’s life. “
There are still a number of questions to be answered, including why police didn’t first try to negotiate with man before entering his building.
"A part of the great thing of living in this country is that you can enter parliament and the only thing they ask you to do is to turn off your cellphone, so you don’t disturb the parliamentarians while they’re talking. We do not have armed guards following our prime minister or president. That’s a part of the great thing of living in a peaceful society. We do not want to change that. "
can you even imagine if the u.s. mourned people killed by police
like a real national outpouring
that moment of silence should last for years
I’m fucking moving to Iceland immediately
This is tragic but it’s fuck beautiful how respectful they were of this mans life

This is a fic I have written. My sis made a post a few days ago about this which I reblogged and I’m gonna post this again. Its Genderfluid Sirius and its not even 700 words long so if you’d read it and critique it I would much appreciate it.
A regular client turned good friend was sexually assaulted and asked me if I would go with her to the police station to make the report. Here is what happened.
Things to note:
1. There may be some triggers around sexual assault, victim blaming, and incompetent police…
Found this in a stall in the girls restroom at my school. Hell yes
i’m basically a clingy needy piece of shit that just wants to cuddle and to sleep and to watch stupid movies and to make out with you. oh and i also want you to play with my hair until i fall asleep
Loophole found. Button pushed.
BUTTON PRESSING INTENSIFIES
*breaks finger from pressing the button so many times*
Additional loophole: No rule stating you must be faithful to villain-spouse, no rule stating you must remain married to villain-spouse and no rule stating you cannot off said villain-spouse.
sometimes the stars align and fic writers get Harry Potter humor spot on in a way jkr could never hope to emulate and it’s fucking MAGICAL
I have begun Full-Shave November.
This is fucking awful. HOW DO YOU DO THIS????
I was in the shower shaving for like… 45 minutes, and I STILL had to forgo shaving one of my legs because I was concerned I was running late for lunch (it turns out I wasn’t, but whatever).
I also ruined my razor, because I didn’t think to trim any of my hair first, but that’s okay.
Also look at all that fucking hair. There’s so much of it. I had no idea I had that much hair on me.
Tomorrow I will shave my left leg and run clean-up on basically everywhere else (it’s pretty patchy).
Aren’t you supposed to grow a mustache? what the fuck is full shave november.
The opposite of No Shave November. Lots of women get flak for participating in No Shave November and letting their body hair grow out (I can’t find the post with a bunch of screencapped tweets about it, but this is the next best thing), but the vast majority of guys (myself included) have absolutely no idea what a pain feeling like you have to shave your body hair is like. So, for the entirety of the month, I will be shaving my legs, chest, and armpits on a regular basis (as well as my usual regimen of shaving my face).
This idea. I like it. Another.
