Luna Lovegood #inktober
Tumblr on November 1st
Do you know how many times I’ve walked around bookstores, carrying this around, only to put it back on the shelf and leave? Even in London last summer, I badly wanted to buy it, to have a UK edition, and I carried it around a shop by the hotel, searched for it after some “Tex-Mex” in Notting Hill, but I still couldn’t bring myself to buy it. I’ve even checked it out a couple of times from the library, and actually read a couple of pages. But I wasn’t ready. Maybe now I am? THIS IS GOING TO MAKE ME FEEL THINGS, ISN’T IT?!
I’m afraid so.
i love this book and i can’t get anyone to read it T_T
Titus Andronicus: "Well That Escalated Quickly"Romeo and Juliet: "Shut Up, You’re Like 12"Julius Caesar: "I Came Out Here to Run the Roman Empire and I Am Honestly Feeling So Attacked Right Now"Hamlet: "[AGGRESSIVELY PRETENDS TO GO INSANE AND IN THE PROCESS GOES ACTUALLY INSANE MAYBE]"Othello: "Othello: Is my wife cheating on me?? Iago: Bitch, she might be."King Lear: "Shows Up To Realization of Commonality with Humanity and Renouncement of Titles as Identity-Definers 15 Years Late With Starbucks"Macbeth: "Did It For the Vine"Antony and Cleopatra: "Much Rome. Very Egypt. Such Different. Wow."
Books that people read romantically but shouldn’t because they’re missing the point:
- Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov
- Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare
- The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
That’s your opinion.
there’s nothing romantic about a pedophile rapist, the senseless murder-suicide of teenagers because families can’t get their shit together or the hypocrisy of the roaring 20s
FINALLY SOMEONE SAYS IT
Also, Lily Potter would have never wanted an abortion, because she was a financially well-off white woman starting a family in a happy marriage with a secure place at the top of wizarding society.
The question you should be asking is what if Merope Gaunt, an impoverished and uneducated single woman who escaped from a severely abusive family only to become pregnant with the unwanted child of a man who wanted nothing to do with her, had had access to an abortion and not had immense social pressure brainwashing her into carrying to term?
OHOHO AND THEN WHERE WOULD WE BE?! WE’D HAVE A HAPPY STORY ABOUT WIZARD KIDS. TAKE THAT. TAKE THAAAAAAT.
