I can't classify this blog as specifically feminist or animals or multifandom or anything, because it's all of that and more. General geekery is a good term. It's 100% me.

im so hooked on muggleborns fucking shit up with pop culture references

dumbledore warns for something with the words “very dangerous” and around the great hall you hear scattered “much frightening” “such peril”

snape gets really fuckin pissed off at a kid named luke and roars “LUKE!!!” and luke stands up and screams back “I AM YOUR FATHER”

mcgonagall catches students doing something against hogwart’s rules and yells “WHY?” and one kid goes “M C A”

i hate it when

there’s like a feeling in your gut that something is very wrong and the feeling is so strong that it makes you feel physically ill but the problem is that there’s actually nothing wrong so you don’t know what to do

and the feeling just doesn’t go away

OH MY GOD OTHER PEOPLE GET THIS

what if you have a soul mate and thats what happens 

when theyre in trouble

during a concert

  • me: they're real
  • me: they're REAL
  • me: I love them
  • me: I'm going to cry
  • me: omg
  • me: what
  • me: they're real

The first two books are adventure stories, about getting people jazzed for revolution. But the third one changes genres and switches into misery porn. It’s about the consequences and the reality of that revolution.
You wanted a war, dear reader? Here is war, up close and personal. Here is the boredom and the fear and the being locked in a “safe” place with no control. Here is Prim dying pointlessly. Here is PTSD. Here is a brainwashed, weaponized version of your beautiful lover who went off to battle and came back a killer. Here are people, fatuous people but people who cared about you and who just happened to be on the wrong side at the wrong time, people who are beaten and kept in chains by your allies. Here are your friends and peers dying screaming in the stinking dark, literally torn to pieces and devoured alive. Here is the man you thought would be your confidante for life and maybe something more, the blood of your fucking family all over his hands. Here is beaten down exhaustion and despair and confusion. Here is everything you wanted, dear reader. Eat it up. Choke it down. Does any of it seem so necessary now?
And for all that price paid, what changes? The old man is dying anyway, he chokes to death on his own blood laughing at you. The old lady just brings the games back. Everything you fought for, perverted by power-hungry politicians. All that changed was the color of the boot and the neck it pressed down on.
Even after righting THAT final wrong, the only happy ending Katniss gets is that she can tell her kids why mommy wakes up screaming at night.
Yeah, the prose isn’t the best. But damn do I love where Collins took the series. It’s not an adventure series about justified vengeance. It’s about the consequences of violence, and the personal and social toll it takes on everybody. She fashioned an intense anti-war story and suckered the audience into it with her thrilling dystopia tales. What a great trick.

Now that Missouri Highway Patrol are policing Ferguson, things are a lot different.

This is what happens when you remove racist, belligerent cops from a non-violent protest.

it is very good news that the citizens are no longer living under militarized attackbut please don’t forget that this sudden surge of friendliness is a deliberate tactic to placate unrest and maintain order, not to bring justice or to truly answer to the problem of police brutality
it is a move to shift the narrative to “a couple cops are bad apples, but look how good the rest of them are”

one of my roommates used to work with 5th graders in a creative writing class thing and they had to write a romance and most of the kids wrote stories about princesses and crap but this one little girl wrote about how a marshmallow fell in love with a mug of cocoa and he loved the cocoa so much that in order to be with her he melted and died like wow kid that’s some shakespearian shit right there
