“I’m disgusted,” said Professor McGonagall. “Four students out of bed in one night! I’ve never heard of such a thing before!”

(from the philosopher’s stone)

minerva you fucking liar

so ok i bet minerva’s spent like the last thirty years pretending to students that their transgressions are totally unique new crimes just to really shame them

sneaking off to the astronomy tower to make out? she’s never heard of such a thing before. sneaking into the herbology greenhouses to find something to get high on? she’s never heard of such a thing before. sneaking off to the forbidden forest to make out and get high? she’s never heard of such a thing before. sneaking off to the kitchens for midnight snack parties (while high and making out)? she’s never heard of such a thing before. trying to sneak back into the tower via flying a broom through an outside window after a previously successful night of misdoing? she’s never heard of such a thing before and neither has the pink lady. 

not since she was in school and doing all that herself, anyway. 

This is literally what teachers do. 

They have to make it seem like every misbehaviour is new and shocking because if they just went “damn son that’s nothing, when I was your age I jumped off the school roof and yelled fuck all the way down” it would be impossible to give them detention for throwing a pen across the room.

I was once in a lesson during my teacher training where a kid left a drawing of a dick on the teacher’s chair and she acted like the kid had killed her puppy in front of her. After the lesson we both laughed our asses off about it, she wasn’t insulted in the least, it just wasn’t acceptable behaviour.

Tl;dr Minerva is being a great teacher, and she’s probably got a poll going with the other staff at Hogwarts as to what crazy shit Harry and Co. will do next. 

yes i love this. she probably got back to the staff room and was like ‘ALRIGHT, LET’S MARK IT DOWN, I JUST CAUGHT POTTER THE SEQUEL SNEAKING OUT ON A MISADVENTURE WITH HIS LITTLE FRIENDS,’ and everyone groans and rummages in their pockets to settle their bets. 

Potter the Sequel

i witness pictures of a “relaxing” woman and i think: it is funny how they see us. in the movies under the shower, the actress stands with shaved legs, leaning into the water, opening her mouth with a sensuous sigh. our sleepovers are supposed to come with bras and tight panties, laughing our painted lips over pizza you don’t see us eat. we take walks in the park in good heels, look excellent after running, always have a gentle smile on our pristine faces.

an artist draws a piece about how women alone don’t have to be sad that they’re alone, they should relish in it, which i thank him for giving me permission to do. the result of his work is half-nude ladies draped like linens over their couches, flashes of thigh gaps and open lips, breasts swelling pleasantly, a yawn and and stretch that shows off her hipbones. 

the only evidence i have that i’m normal is considered comedy. our reality is comedy. lying in bed under three covers, bra off but sweater on, laptop positioned directly under lack of a chin: that gets a laugh. in the movies, the quirky girl in a cute-ugly but somehow flattering pajama set gets caught at the supermarket and it’s a nice romantic scene where we find out how awkward it is for her to exist without makeup, without her best effort to please sexually. she sees her boss or her cute friend or whatever else makes us laugh and cringe and the next time we put on “real clothes” before we go out shopping.

the real world exists somewhere outside the picture of women. we come home and strip off our bras, but instead of that being a still image of a delicate female stepping away nude, it’s a moment of our peacefulness. the narrative so often stops here, us heading our improbably slim legs to the bedroom. but instead our breasts don’t always hang evenly, instead some of us do not have breasts, instead we swipe a hand over our tired faces and smear our makeup but are too lazy to take it off. our bodies crack and crunch and do not stretch like a cat but instead in weird directions, we rush out our breath and slouch and barely keep our eyes open. we lie with our thighs touching and our stomachs hanging because it’s comfortable. we sling ourselves undainty over whatever will support our weight. our showers consist equally of staring into the void as of unflattering angles while we wash; our bodies never come pre-shaved and for some reason our underarm hair is really persistent or our leg hair is dark and shows even after shaving or maybe both. our sleepovers mostly feature netflix and wine, getting food on our faces, eating until our stomachs make round pleased hills, talking trash and swearing up storms more than we paint our nails. we don’t go to the store in cute-ugly clothes, we go because we forgot to buy tampons or we dropped all our rice on the ground or because we’re human and we need supplies to survive. 

there is a very strange body-positive rule where somehow, we always end up under the slogan “beautiful.” our loneliness, our adulthood, our moments where were are not even being judged - i should remind you that those are beautiful too. but the truth is that you don’t need to be beautiful. and these moments in particular, that belong to you: they’re yours, they don’t need to be told that they exist in some plane of desirability. who cares if they’re ugly, if they’re truly self-serving and unflattering and indelicate. when you are home, you are finally human, returned to skin that itches in awkward places and ugly habits and it’s okay. they won’t show you a version of that without laughing about it, but we are real, we don’t keep ourselves perfect in even our peaceful moments. it’s okay. i know you might be worried what happens if you get a partner or roommate and they learn you live this way, that you’re messy and forget to brush your teeth sometimes and get food all over the place when you eat and i’m telling you: you’re not unusual. you’re just human, and these moments aren’t somehow shameful. they’re not untouchable and unspeakable because they’re not pretty. because instead they’re human.

we aren’t here to be watched, and we don’t need your approval. we weren’t created to always please. sometimes we get to take a break from beautiful.

when you are home, you are finally human, returned to skin that itches in awkward places and ugly habits and it’s okay. they won’t show you a version of that without laughing about it, but we are real

***This is an emergency bulletin for everyone in Austin.***

I need as many people who can do this to spread the word to any and all Austin contacts, DO NOT WAIT, tomorrow might be too late. This is from a trusted friend and a member of one of the internal offices of the Texas capital building who holds a significant position in the Texas government ranks. He’s also an LGBT ally.

**************

FYI austin. From a trusted friend. “I heard at a chamber meeting this afternoon that ICE is going to do a door to door round up in Austin Thursday-Sunday. Apparently the White House heard about our Sheriff and is looking to make us an example with a big media blitz. Don’t know all your network connections and wanted to spread the word so organizations can encourage immigrant families to get out of town if possible”

Reblogging per request – normally this would go in RFM, but it’s an immediate potential event, and the “What to do if ICE shows up on your door” infographic is helpful regardless.

magic-gps replied to your post “hey sam, will your superb owl stream have subtitles?”

What is the phantom edit?

It’s a fan-made recut of the Phantom Menace, which – I haven’t actually seen it for myself, so this is hearsay – removes most of the kiddie antics and the midchorians thing. (Which I kinda want to see actually so I may dig that scene up somehow.) It also scrambles Jar Jar Binks’s dialogue into an alien language and then subtitles him with new dialogue that is (I hope) a) less racist and b) less stupid. 

We’ll see how that goes. I’m hoping I got the right one. 

I can’t remember anything racist about what Jar-Jar was actually saying?  Wasn’t it all in the delivery with the horrific accent and ridiculous pidgen?  

So like if you dubbed the lines into unintelligible clicks and chirps or frog screaming or something, then subtitled, say, “Meesa no tink dis a good idea!” as “I don’t think this is a good idea.”, you could excise 90% of the racism from Episode I? 

(I don’t remember if the aliens that were basically Space-Mandarins had accents, but Jesus, those costumes.)

I’m given to understand that they didn’t just remove the racism but actually made Jar Jar smarter – like, the shit he gets up to is no longer just him being a dumbass to get laughs for little kids watching the movie, it’s now justified by his newly-written dialogue, turning him into some kind of wise fool. 

I suppose we’ll find out in TWO DAYS! :D 

the Space-Mandarins definitely had accents. Accents that made Mickey Rooney in Breakfast at Tiffany’s seem subdued.

We exist… because of sex. It’s not something to be afraid of. It’s something to honor. To enjoy.

yes this is a sex scene with lots of attractive people….but my main thought? 

“God, this is so well-shot.” It’s just…gorgeous. (I think the range of skin tones and body shapes helps that, mind you. Nom.)
