Laura may be too nice to admit it or even realize it but youre a horrible cruel human being and I hope youre aware of how selfish and hurtful you are man people are not garbage you can dispose of
Forgive me if I say it’s actually none of your business, anon. You don’t know what happened or why, and I’m not prepared to discuss it with people who don’t know me, particularly on anon. Laura is a lovely person, and I wish her all the happiness in the world. But sometimes relationships don’t work out, and that doesn’t mean either party is at fault. It just happens.
Remember in 1993 when Jurassic Park was like…the end all, be all of special effects?
not gonna lie that still looks intimately real
I’m still somewhat convinced that someone sold their soul to create the special effects in Jurassic Park because that shit is over 20 years old and it still really, really holds up, better than the stuff in a lot of current movies, even.
okay, most of what i do re: harry potter is criticism, and hp is flawed in such a number of ways, but sometimes i just sit here and
i mean, you all have a comprehension of just how drastically harry potter changed literature, yeah? like. it revitalized it. it blew the literary scene apart. the new york times had to create a separate bestseller’s list for children’s lit just because harry potter existed. harry potter changed reading.
so many people on tumblr were born in the ’90s. when the first book came out, most of us couldn’t read. but we grew up in a world where everyone, everyone, everyone was reading harry potter, no matter how old they were; we grew up in a world where the most popular story in the entire world was a fantasy children’s book.
it’s sort of difficult to grasp, sometimes, the extent to which harry potter is not just a book. the extent to which what is basically a series of fun, interesting, and fairly good novels is such an enormous, enormous part of our lives, a cultural touchstone, a truly universal reference point, something so many people have shaped their lives around, a foundation for all of the stories we would read and watch for the rest of our lives— for so many of us, the first books we ever loved
the extent to which so many of us can’t call ourselves “fans” of harry potter, because it would like being a “fan” of, like, having lungs.
it’s not even about liking it or disliking it. it’s just a part of us.
are you done with all the url graphics? :) no rush just wondering
I’m not finished with my list of them, no. I’ve still got a handful left to do. I’m sorry I’ve not got to them yet - I’ve had a rough few days, and yesterday was pretty much entirely taken up with interviewing new carers :S
I’ve not forgotten them and I WILL get to them all. There’s still a few where I need to go back to people for hints and tips about what their URL refers to :D
isn't Laura going to be there soon as well? :)) that must be nice! I hope you have fun on Saturday!
Laura and I have broken up, anon.
I hope I’ll have fun too. It’ll be the first birthday theatre trip without Mum, and I’m deeply gutted about that, but she’s just not mobile enough right now. But my ‘big sister’ Emma is coming instead, and that’s fantastic, ‘cos I don’t see her enough!
On Thursday my Sam sister is coming, and Thursday evening we’re going to play a Hobbit drinking game, and on Saturday we’re going to London to see The Crucible with my big sister Emma and my bestie Erin, and on Sunday (ugh) it’s my birthday but that does mean I’ll get chocolate cake
and these are the things that I’m holding onto right now *nods firmly*
