imagine how hard it must be to be a muggleborn at hogwarts like you’re never in the right loop at school you have to hear wizard references you don’t get and no one understands your muggle references and then the opposite happens when you go home for the summer and it actually sounds pretty shitty
Imagine the first muggle-world students getting wifi working at Hogwarts.
Getting your wizard friends to ‘mysteriously’help you win online pvp matches against your muggle friends while you were ‘away at school’ and the systems not being able to prove you’re cheating.
The Weasley Grandkid and his friends taking his iPhone 7 or whatever to the Burrow to show Mr Weasley.
I think it’d work out ok for the muggleborns in the end. :)
Tampons were packed with their strings connecting them, like a strip of sausages, so they wouldn’t float away. Engineers asked Ride, “Is 100 the right number?” She would be in space for a week. “That would not be the right number,” she told them. At every turn, her difference was made clear to her. When it was announced Ride had been named to a space flight mission, her shuttle commander, Bob Crippen, who became a lifelong friend and colleague, introduced her as “undoubtedly the prettiest member of the crew.” At another press event, a reporter asked Ride how she would react to a problem on the shuttle: “Do you weep?”
Quick show of hands: are there any grownups/ adults using Pottermore?
Went to the WB studio tour yesterday and quite keen to use Pottermore because I’m a Harry Potter fan, but notice they ask for a parent’s permission in the sign up so don’t want to be the Weird Adult on there.
But if loads of people are using it, that’s fine.
The cat in this set is very similar to my cat when I was growing up.
I’m getting tired of the Hannibal posts. I get that he’s a cannibal. I get that he’s turned an FBI agent to his side. I get that Will aggressively loves dogs. I used to want to watch a few episodes, but…
Does it help to understand that it is basically a Vampire Show? It’s the most gothic show I can think of in terms if it’s sensibility, and the entire narrative is about this extraordinarily urbane, civilised, intelligent compassionate-seeming dude WHO IS SECRETLY A VAMPIRE (okay no pointy teeth or immortality, but all the other narrative tropes? Bing bing bing).
And he’s a vampire who is falling in obsessive vampire love (not really sexual - I mean, I have no problem with people going for that simpler reading, but sex isn’t what motivates Hannibal) with the dude who’s supposed to track him down. This dude who, uniquely, is able to really understand vampires & other monsters, using what are essentially spooky psychic powers. He goes from being intrigued by this dude to urgently wanting to make him into a vampire too - WOOING him, essentially, by manipulating him into saving a child who may or may not have been infected with vampirism by the vampire who nearly killed her.
I mean, no worries if that kind of narrative isn’t your beautiful cake - but that’s what’s going on with Hannibal. It isn’t REALLY a real world procedural sort of show; it isn’t even a real world serial killer show like Dexter. It’s a vampire show passing itself off as a show about people.
Ok now I actually want to see this show.
