So many of you are too young to remember why Diana, Princess of Wales, was such a remarkable person. She pissed off most of Buckingham Palace, was her own woman, and wasn’t afraid to get down out of the motorcade and be with the regular people.
She was a regular person, just with a title and fancy clothes.
Among the first big “names” to visit, talk to, and even touch those dying of AIDS in English hospitals, Diana’s trademark was her ability to break down insurmountable barriers.
If someone cheats on you they do not love you, remember that. If someone cheats on you they do not care about you as much as they say they do. If someone cheats on you it means that for a split second you were off their mind long enough for them to put another person in arms that should only be for you. If someone cheats on you, dear god, I hope you don’t go back to them because you are worth so much more than that.
Slytherin!Harry AU (x)
#slytherin harry would have been the ultimate choice from an authorial perspective #the chosen one coming out of a house disgraced by racism and the dark arts #a living testament to the fact that slytherin house is the fast track to greatness and that good or evil is a CHOICE #also harry already had a brush with slytherin during his sorting and can speak parseltongue and all that awesome stuff #because lets be real harry is brave as hell but hes also cunning, determined to survive #a little duplicitous #and thrives on praise #slytherin harry could be besties with ron AND close to draco #he could break down interhouse prejudice and be the bright light in a noble house that has fallen into darkness #he could put an end to the honestly awful griffyndor/slytherin bullying that GOES BOTH WAYS because screw this idea that you have to choose a side, that you have to compete with people who are different than you #and he could struggle with his inner demons the whole time #because characters that could easily go bad who get up every day choosing to be good will always be more important to me than inherently good ones
#SLYTHERIN HARRY IS THE MOST IMPORTANT REIMAGINING OF CANON#not just because of what it means for harry but because of what it means for slytherin house as a whole#and the individuals in harry’s year#death eater parents‚ best friends with the saviour of the wizarding world#torn between familial loyalty and friendship#choosing between what they were taught and what they’ve learnt for themselves
"what’s a queen without her king?" well, historically, better
also, in the british monarchy, if a queen is on the throne, there isn’t a king. her husband is a prince. BUT if a king is on the throne, his wife is a queen. which truly shows that the country can be ruled without a king but can’t without a queen.
The first person I’ve ever loved. The person I’ll always love. I love… I love you, Scott.
nobody was on my level when it came to harry potter seven years ago today i actually set up camp in my bathroom with snacks and water and finished the last book in less than 10 hours and the reason it was in my bathroom was so that when i needed to pee i only had to walk 4 steps to the toilet. it was not a game to me
you’re such a nerd
Dude I was on holiday in Turkey for 2 weeks and the book came out on the middle weekend and I sold my soul to the people that arrived the day after it came out to read their copy and I promised I would give it back in the morning I would only need it one night and I finished it in 7 hours this was intense because I was reading against a deadline and that deadline was sunrise
If the lords of the Seven Kingdoms grew accustomed to Queen Cersei’s r u l e, it would be that much easier for them to bend their knees to Queen Myrcella.
If you could create an alternative to shipping swan queen on tumblr, what would it look like? What would you want.
An online SQ themed comic, where the plot and the parts of dialogues are suggested and voted-up by fans. (for example, each new story could be based on the ‘aftermath’ of each OUaT episode). To keep things interesting, nobody (except for the comic creators) will know how the voting went before the story is published (shared online).
That’s clever. I like
