when the person who volunteers to read is completely illiterate
Can’t you just praise them for having the confidence to speak in front of others? Are you taking the piss out of speech impediments etc?
For a website full of “understanding” and “open minded” individuals, you all sure can be bullies.
If you command me to do something that I was already planning on doing the chances of me doing that thing automatically drop to zero
I JUST LOVE ALIX OLSON SO MUCH UGH
I love maya’s house with all my heart because it is so her
The way the kitty kisses you with her headbutts, the way the walls are covered in paper yet the house is not musty, the way that I can see Maya using the remote and the sounds it makes just fits so perfectly, like, oh of course! Why would you have any other remote.
I know it doesn’t make sense what i’m saying, but this house makes sense. I can see her handwriting everywhere, I know the smell of her makeup and it makes me think that she’s coming home soon, and I know how it feels to lay down on the couch or make tea. It all feels so familiar, and so home, and it just makes sense. Because this house makes me feel better and gives me a place to go to, just like you have, and I miss you so much so please come home
Bo Burnham after his show on MTV was canceled.
Seven years ago, the world said it was the end of an era. News outlets prepared for what they thought - and perhaps hoped - would be their final coverage of the Harry Potter phenomenon. While small bookstores celebrated alongside readers, big box stores were gearing up for “one last midnight release.”
Seven years ago, we knew better. We were ready. We were decked out from head to toe, friends new and old by our side and wand at the ready. Maybe we were lining up, filling stores and sidewalks with our excited chatter, shutting down Harvard Yard with our music movement, pushing our favorite fansites’ servers to their limits. We were loud because we knew the rest of the night would be spent in silence. We knew we’d be reading well into daylight. We knew better.
Despite that, parts of us were scared that - beyond all reason - they were right. Scared that it would inexplicably fizzle out, that this would be the last time, that we’d reunite briefly for the remaining movies and then move on. We knew this wouldn’t happen, but fear resists reason and we were scared.
Seven years later, we’re still going strong and it’s easy to laugh at those fleeting concerns. It’s easier still to forget that we made this happen. We made conscious decisions to keep the Harry Potter community alive, to talk about what we’d just read and wonder what would happen next. Even when the first wave of discussion died down, the fandom went on. We hadn’t stopped loving Harry Potter. We’d only just begun.
Seven years ago, the Harry Potter Alliance was still just starting out. We made some big strides and had some - okay, more than just some - big ideas. In the time since then, you’ve helped us make some incredible moments possible. There are already too many campaigns, discussions, and memories to nail down in one tidy list. This fandom’s commitment to Harry Potter and each other is what made those big ideas possible and makes them possible still.
In just a few minutes, it’ll be midnight again and we’ll be celebrating the book that brought us all together - not for the first time and not for the last - seven years ago.
But first, we want to celebrate this community: the one that saw Harry through until the very end, the one that already has new things to count down to, the one that knows know what it knew then.
Okay, just hear me out for a second.
Muggleborn kid with a talent for magic. Not real magic. Like, sleight of hand magic. And then a prefect catches them doing something like making a ball appear to vanish or whatever, and just loses their shit because this 11 year old kid has utterly mastered Vanishing Spells and what the hell how is that even possible.
"… and to you, if you have stuck with Harry until the very end."
Here’s to book seven. Here’s to the years of anticipation before it and the years of discussion in its wake. Here’s to the boy who lived and how he changed everything.
And here’s to you, if you know that “the very end” isn’t happening anytime soon.
I am the single thing now
