my biggest pet peeve is when people write lupin as the wet blanket mom friend prefect type, like…did you read prisoner of azkaban tho??

literally shoots chewing gum up peeves’ nose 20 seconds into his first lesson ever

passive-aggressively puts snape’s boggart in drag after snape insults neville in front of his class 

and THEN, gives zero fucks about snape’s increasing rage as word gets around that HE DID THAT

speaking of gives zero fucks: gives zero fucks about trelawney’s attempts to crystal gaze for him

somehow miraculously bullshits his and harry’s way out of repercussions after snape catches harry with the map and has every right to put harry in detention for the rest of his life (AND he keeps composure while his teenage self is savagely badmouthing snape right in front of him, no less)

is prepared to straight up murder his former best friend in cold blood in front of 3 of his students and totally would have done it if not for harry’s intervention

gives harry the map back because, fuck it, he’s not a teacher anymore, give em hell, kid

like i get the whole tea/sweaters/laid-back-professor aesthetic, but remus lupin is a magnificently flawed and sometimes straight up terrifying character…he’s so much more than fandom’s portrayal of him as this mild-mannered, careful person, and i think that part of the reason he’s so interesting to me is that he seems just like that at first, but you have all this dark shit lurking just beneath the surface. one of my favorite moments in the entire series is when he goes into that extremely scary place and he’s about to murder peter, because you know that each DADA professor so far has had some dark secret, and even beyond the werewolf reveal, remus’ payoff is SO good. he’s such a good character honestly

Hello, Vampire Chronicles fans.

Sit down. We need to have a chat.

You see, while some people are very much excited for a new show about our pompous king of the assholes (and I say this as a term of endearment, having loved Lestat since I was a depressed teenager living in New York, shuffling through my mom’s fiction section) we need to pause and remember this:

Anne Rice does not support fan fiction or anything that is not glowing praise.

Read it again, slowly.

Anne Rice does not support fan fiction or anything that is not glowing praise.

This is difficult for younger fans to understand, but let’s take a walk down memory lane.

She has threatened to sue writers in the past. She is one of the most prolific writers of our generation, and she does not support people using her characters for their own work.

In fact, in 2000 she went on a binge-attack against her fans. She threatened legal action against fans who wrote or drew her characters, but especially those who wrote with them. She sent them weeks of harassing letters and doxxed them on the internet.

Let me repeat that.

She doxxed people who wrote fan fiction.

She harassed them online and threatened to contact employers.

She used her fans to outright attack other fans.

This isn’t even something she can just shake off now, with the comment of “It was so long ago” because she did this to a writer who wrote commentary on her story in 2013.

In 2013.

While it was not that she wrote fan fiction, she still shows that she has no respect for people who are in fandom.

Remember those disclaimers used in fan fics, at the beginning? “I do not own …. ”? Yeah, a lot of that has to do with the fact that Anne Rice and others like her would attack fandoms and threaten them, and was in hopes that they would just leave us alone. She didn’t.

In short: Do not trust Anne Rice. I love her writing, I have read every book she has even written, but I do not trust her.

You shouldn’t, either.

Anne Rice was and still is a bully. Don’t support her work.

She’s been like this since Geocities was the big place to have spec (that’s what fics used to be called, specs, as in speculative fiction) pages back in the mid 90s.

She use to threaten to sue anyone she found posting specs anywhere, and there was a whole underground network of people to share specs and fan art (which she also would threaten to sue over).

Anne Rice has always been kind of a twat about fan works based on her mediocre writing.

Hey all my homies let’s do a little experiment, take this test and reblog with your score, age, and state/country in the tags. A passing score is 60% or 15/25 correct so let’s see who really has what it takes to be a citizen of the United States!

I’m from England and I literally could only answer a few of these 

19/25, 24 from Scotland.

15/25, 22 from England

I’m from fucking America and I got 16 out of 25.

I got 10 out of 25 and i am an amercan

Huh, 19 out of 25, from Ireland.

WOO 25 OUT OF 25, I AM A TRUE COASTAL ELITE

even though i really wanted to answer #4 with this

25 out of 25!(Considering I took AP US history in high school, I’d better have known the answers to these…) (Though that was 11 years ago. Fuck, now I feel old at 27.)From Maine here.

23 out of 25

I took AP Us History Also. 

Alabama

24 out of 25, but both an AP History student and a bit of a history nerd.

20/25, and totally Canadian.

22 out of 25. Considering I’m half asleep and took APUSH in the last century, that’s all right.

24/25, 29 and Canadian.  

American from birth, 23 out of 25.

I got wrong who becomes president if the president and VP both can no longer serve, and (to my shame) who was president during WWI.

25 of 25. Born and raised here. Mostly remembered the WWI president because his reelection slogan was “he kept us out of war”, which he promptly failed to do.

24/25, and I am German!

20/25, I’m 31 and Scottish. 

I have to admit that some of those were thanks to Hamilton. 

“And when I meet Thomas Jefferson, I’m’a compell him to include women in the sequel!”
