Chris Pratt Interrupts Interview To French Braid Intern’s Hair
SHUT THE HELL U P
this man has gone too far
Where does Marvel FIND these people?
Imagine - Chris Pratt and Jeremy Renner show up to your door the night of prom and your parents are like WHY DO YOU HAVE TWO DATES AND WHY ARE THEY SO BIG AND BEEFY AND INTIMIDATING but Chris is just like “Nah I’m hair” and Jeremy raises his hand and says “And I’m makeup”
surprisingly well done
Damnit, Pratt, stop being adorable.
Knit one row a day for a year, matching the yarn color to the color of the sky that day.
Seriously, I don’t think it gets said enough in this fandom, but Harry is really such a good kid, and as much as the “name his kid after Snape etc etc” doesn’t make sense for multiple reasons, if it weren’t for the fact I couldn’t believe other people wouldn’t advise him against it, I can yeah, sort of see it, because he is way too forgiving and empathetic for his own good early on.
It was as early as the fifth book that after being pretty much mentally tortured by this guy, all he had to see were a few memories of him being bullied, and it was like instance empathy. “I’ve been bullied. I’ve been tortured. Now I see Snape has and I feel sorry for him.” Harry was so incredibly horrified at the idea his dad could have been a bully he was depressed for weeks, specifically because he knew what being abused felt like.
Snape had literally laughed at his terrible memories, but Harry was shocked when Snape thought he would find his funny.
Really, the big difference between Snape and Harry is Harry is able to engage in empathy and self reflection to an extent I don’t think he really gets credit for. He’s the opposite spectrum from Snape, who can never fucking forgive anything and punishes people who weren’t involved. Harry will instantly connect someone else’s pain to his own and feel it like that, no matter what that person did to him. He grew up suffering, and instead of letting that close him off from empathy, he instead uses it to connect to other people and look out for them. I think that’s pretty amazing. He always values people who suffered for him and died to protect him, even if they were horrible to him, he kind of can’t let go of that connection. It’s a kind of forgiveness that’s almost unhealthy, but it’s also born I think, from being a person who just…loves a lot because they know what it’s like to grow up without love.
So my actual headcanon for that is that people around Harry on some level understand that Harry just couldn’t let go of someone else’s suffering once he felt it as intimately as he felt Snape’s and wanted him to do what he could to make peace with that.
I always remember when I was younger and fandom would talk about how Harry overreacted to stuff (especially in the fifth book) and I just always saw it as the same as me, really. When you grow up sometimes in a bad situation, you can go certain ways- completely shut yourself off, or become very sensitive and open to your own suffering and the suffering around you to the point where you’re just boiling over all the time. You can’t ask for help, but you want to help everyone instead. Harry was always a character I related too because I understood that, I understood wanting to connect with everyone and not being able to stand when something reminds you of that suffering. Harry really is a good character. You can say all you want about the writing in Harry Potter, but god, he really meant a lot to me, and still does strike me as a very accurate representation of how someone who grew up in that situation can act.
Red Sonja/ Conan
First time these characters have met in FIFTEEN YEARS.
Yeah but why is Conan wearing pants?
(Looking forward to this book!)
Hey thefrogman, has this been done yet?
Have you ever seen Otis and I in the same picture?
Yes, lots of times.
But that would have been a cool twist ending. *scary music*
The Worst Muse is written by postcardsfromspace, just so ya know. :)
The day I learnt my classmates didn’t know you could have kids outside of marriage. That was fun. :)

A guy who was talking/shouting to someone who wasn’t there on the bus earlier got taken off by police. He had been scaring me a bit, and he was repeating swear words at a volume at whatever I couldn’t see. He sat next to me when the cops tried to take him. When he wouldn’t go with them, they threatened to arrest him. I wanted to say something about not hurting him because he was obviously mentally ill but instead I moved. They took him off the bus. I wondered the rest of the way home if he had anyone to look after him. The Guards had at least been somewhat gentle with him, but I wished there were people with the power and backing the Gardaí have, but who deal with mental illness outside of the context of law enforcement. People who could be called to take care of people who are getting drunk to deal with their schizophrenia, or having a really bad panic attack, or are hurting themselves in public. They could offer people a room instead of a cell. A cup of tea instead of handcuffs. A hug instead of brutality.
I never troll!
Maybe the reason so many of us are uncomfortable with protest is because we tend to be uncomfortable with directness and sincerity in expressing our emotions. As a society, I mean. We bond socially by speaking around things - saying the opposite of what we mean. At many protests I’ve been to, the chanting doesn’t feel like “us”. It feels like an import from a society where people don’t slag to show affection, where people don’t have to drink to get together, where people can angry about things without being told to get off their high horse. This makes me wonder if there’s a kind of protest that we need to invent that’s unique to local customs and culture. But sure, maybe it’s just me. Maybe there has been a massive backlash against the government for everything they’ve done since 2008. Maybe I just missed it.
GUYS I CAN’T STOP LAUGHING
That is so adorable.
And so the cycle begins anew.
I was. We didn’t care more about music than popularity or sex. We weren’t happy with ourselves. I can’t tell if this is genuine or if it’s actually something someone of my generation said when they were teenagers, with the references updated. Also, I’m pretty sure my generation invented the foundation cake.
