Your dudes tag is like 80% Sebastian Stan, and all of your comments and tags below perfectly capture my feelings tbh.

A

Once upon a time I didn’t ~*do that*~ (I mean just essentially objectify guys) but whtvr ‘cause Sebastian Stan started popping up on my dash and how can you NOT? So he is the origin of the #dudes tag and the others are there just to make it all seemed balanced (clearly it’s not working [which is fine]).

ok i was tagged by candythongs

rules: answer 11 questions, make 11 new questions, tag 11 people (i paraphrased)

candythongs’s questions:

1. What is something that’s completely non-negotiable for you? I do not like people being self-deprecating. Or tasteless jokes (rape jokes, HIV/AIDS jokes, etc.). Sexism/racism/etc. LIKE BASICALLY ANYTHING THAT’S BULLSHIT.

2. What inspires you? tbh A lot of the people I meet. Hearing personal stories…nothing really glamorous or out-of-the-ordinary, but, like, what people have done with their lives. And the small struggles people have overcome that are actually really exceptional, even though I think we think of those obstacles as just necessary hurdles - it’s super cool how and why people overcome them.

3. If you had to listen to one album for the rest of your life, what would it be? omfg I don’t even know…possibly Ceremonials by Florence + the Machine. But idk! Maybe, honestly, Robbers & Cowards by Cold War Kids…or If You Wait by London Grammar…okay, I’m going to say The Diary of Alicia Keys by Alicia Keys. That’s it. Final answer.

4. What’s your favorite color? Why? Green, but only because that’s what I’ve always said. I don’t know why it’s my favorite color…but honestly maybe black is my favorite color? I like the simplicity of black.

5. Do you prefer cake or pie? Easily cake.

6. If you won the jackpot in the lottery, what would you do with the money? Pay off my student loans, pay off whatever debt my parents have, pay off my friends’ student loans, and then buy a one-way ticket out of the USA.

7. Do you have a crush on anyone? Tell me all about them! lol I don’t. No one here is worth my time.

8. What’s the most recently added song in your iTunes library? I imported Mura Masa’s first EP.

9. What do you worry about? Running out of time. Never finishing my bachelor’s degree. Insurmountable debt. Procrastinating through opportunities. ~*~*~*just girly things*~*~*~

10. What are you best at? I’m really, really good at reading people. I can pick out a good, cheap bottle of wine very quickly. Memorizing facts. I can make good playlists (YOU ALL BETTER LOVE THEM). Listening.

11. What’s your favorite time of day? Why? Nighttime. I’m not a big fan of the sun; way too hot. I’m just a night person - it’s when I prefer to be most active. And everything’s calmer.

ok HERE ARE MY 11 QUESTIONS FOR Y’ALL:

  1. You are tasked to make a classic, French pastry - what do you make and why?
  2. What is your favorite literary, genre trope?
  3. Which musical album has come out this year that you have been completely surprised by?
  4. What is a smell that is strongly tied to a memory? Like, smelling it instantly brings you a vivid memory.
  5. What kind of music do you prefer to listen to when you are walking?
  6. Who, living, do you invite to your home for dinner, what topics do you discuss with them, and (probably most importantly) what do you serve them? There is no guest limit.
  7. Your life is a bottle of wine: is it white, red, rosé, and/or sparkling and what is its flavor profile?
  8. Do you make your bed every day?
  9. Which is better: summer nights or autumn mornings?
  10. Where is somewhere you have been planning and actively working toward going to? Like, this is more than just a desire; it is where you will be going either in a few weeks, months, or years - whatever.
  11. You are given the opportunity to read your pre-teen/early teenage diary/journal/blog/whatever aloud and in public for an audience. Do you do it?

Rise above the crowds.

Someone to be tough on you;
You were changing colors like the leaves in the fall.
We like you.

Let’s just say I like to take chances.

Stranded in this spooky town,
I wish that I was older.


Goin’ to California,
taking a ride to another climb -
It starts with a young boy.

I liked the shows I went to; I wish I could go to more.  But the thing I remember is the girls.  New Jersey Transit runs special trains to the Meadowlands for MetLife shows, and they brought out extra staff to direct girls through the gates to Secaucus.  Knots of New Jersey Transit staff in high-visibility vests, treating girls with kindness.  ”I know you’re excited, just make sure you go through the gates one at a time,” a middle-aged guy with a mustache said, smiling, stopping girls and then waving them through so the timing stayed right and nobody got stuck in the gates.  ”Have a good time!”  When the train finally pulled into the station, teenage girls cheered.  The men on the platform didn’t laugh, the conductors made sure to stand and answer everybody’s questions — yes, this is the right train, yes, you’ll get there on time.  There was no air conditioning on the train, but nobody complained — everybody sat in their seats, and talked to their friends, and every couple of minutes someone would start singing.  I remember when we were walking through Penn Station I had said, “Just think, the next train is going to be all One Direction fans.”  It was the best train I’ve ever been on.  During the show, Harry told us to hug each other, and we did.  The lady checking tickets at the stadium, directing people to their seats: “Enjoy!  Have a great night!” and the fans thanking her on the way out.  Both shows, we kept saying how we had never been in a place where there were so many girls.  ”I like the girl-to-guy ratio here,” Jamie said in Philadelphia.  MetLife holds 82,566 people: they played Little Mix’s “Salute” and “Wings” to almost 82,566 girls.  In the bathroom in Philadelphia, nobody stopped at the mirror to check their makeup; while I was peeing, I heard a little girl walk in singing: She said spread your wings, my little butterfly / Don’t let what they say keep you up at night.  At the Meadowlands they turned the men’s rooms into ladies’ rooms, just hung ladies’ room signs over all the men’s room signs.  ”Oh my god,” I said, walking in.  ”They turned the men’s rooms into ladies’ rooms, because they knew it was going to be all girls.”  ”This must be what it’s like to be a guy,” Isabel said.  And that’s what I thought, the whole rest of the show, and all of Philadelphia: This must be what it’s like.  To be the default.  To be treated like what you care about is worthwhile.  To not be looked down on, or told what to do.  And then I thought, well, it’s because we’re all gathered here, in one place.  This is happening.  They can’t stop us, so they have to go along with it.  In New Jersey, Liam stood on the catwalk talking about how amazing it was that they were playing stadiums, how amazing it was that the fans had done this for them, and then he laughed, like you do when you realized you just hit the heart of something: “I really think if you wanted to, you could take over the world.”  I looked away from him, at 82,566 seats filled with girls and thought: You’re right.  And you’re the only person telling us that.

If you watched or read Harry potter they mention it often and quite obvious. In the movie the text literally says the year and place "1998 London"

A

Yeah, hey, fun fact: I was born in 1988. So when a movie is set in 1998, when I’m ten years old, and Hermione is going to Hogwarts and she just happens to be eleven and a muggle (let’s pause for a second to all acknowledge I’m defending my consternation at when the Harry Potter universe is set and my lack of knowledge re: that), I’m questioning how she was admitted to Hogwarts but no one else was. Also p sure Voldemort didn’t have any hold over the ministry till a few years later since there are, you know, newly-admitted muggles going to school in 98/99.

But apparently Hermione is born in 1980? Which makes more sense to shift the timeline back to then if Voldemort did, in fact, erase all muggle records.

However, mainly, fuck you, anon. I read the first book when I was 10 or 11 and I wanted a fucking letter to Hogwarts. Don’t shit on my magical reality.

Like, damn…let me learn new things about the canon/universe/lore. Back down.
