Ah, I see. Well then the fact is, I’ve rescued you.
Help was on the way and I was calmly waiting for it.
can we talk about this lady please? How she was an elderly, single woman who literally left all of her property to her cats and how the artists could have just made her a stereotypical crazy old cat lady but instead they made her absolutely fabulous and graceful and she still twirls in front of her mirror like she’s pretending to be a princess at age 60/70/80-something?
BUT DO YOU REALIZE WHAT THIS MEANS
HARRY POTTER HAD SO MUCH RESPECT FOR THAT AMAZING WOMAN THAT THE MOMENT SHE WAS DISRESPECTED HE WAS FILLED WITH SUCH A POTENT RAGE HE WAS ABLE TO CAST AN UNFORGIVABLE CURSE
Okay so I never (like… never) put captions on posts. I’m breaking my own rule for this one.
This scene makes me so fucking emotional and it just reinforces the fact that Minerva McGonagall is such an important (yet drastically forgotten and overlooked) character and person in Harry’s life.
The only other person Harry on whom Harry tried to use the Cruciatus curse was Bellatrix, right after she killed Sirius.
The indignation and hatred Harry felt toward Amycus Carrow spitting in Professor McGonagall’s face equalled that of Bellatrix killing his godfather.
I could go on about how much of a mother figure McG was to Harry for ages (like hELLO SHE WAITED ALL DAY SITTING ON A WALL IN HER ANIMAGUS FORM IN LITTLE WHINGING TO SEE WHERE DUMBLEDORE WAS LEAVING BABY HARRY AND THEN TOTALLY TOLD HIM OFF BECAUSE SHE KNEW THE DURSLEYS WOULD TREAT HIM LIKE SHIT).
But the fact that this scene was left out of the final film - that Harry fucking torturing a Death Eater was deemed not important enough - makes me so angry because this scene shows so much of his character and his deep love and admiration for such an important person… And we all know that Dame Maggie Smith would have killed this on screen.
I had a really crap week at work last week and I was really down and out and having a pity party today because I still wasn’t finished complaining about being totally screwed over by admins and guidance.
Then we had to call in social services because a student’s parent beat him up over the weekend…. and I realized why I do what I do.
Stupid schedule screw-ups don’t matter in the long run. I come back every single day to help these kids who have nothing else.
If your favourite musical is something popular like Wicked or RENT, that’s okay.
If your favourite musical is something no one’s heard of like Ordinary Days or The Burnt Part Boys, that’s okay.
If your favourite musical just came out, like First Date or Beautiful, that’s okay.
If your favourite musical is an oldie like Annie Get Your Gun or High Society, that’s okay.
What’s not okay is telling someone they can’t like that musical.
…And you, with all your little flaws, and your little quirks, somehow you keep drawing me back in.
TITANIC AU: The Titanic never hit the iceberg and Jack&Rose had their happy ending for a brief moment.
↳ I wanted IN. I just wanted us to live again. For years I thought we’ve shared this secret that we would be wonderful in the world. I don’t know exactly how, but just the possibility kept me hoping. How pathetic is that? So stupid. To put all your hopes in a promise that was never made. Jack knows what he wants, he found his place, he’s just fine. Married, two kids, it should be enough. It is for him. And he’s right; we were never special or destined for anything at all.
