'Augustus Waters talked so much that he'd interrupt you at his own funeral.And he was pretentious: Sweet Jesus Christ that kid never took a piss without pondering the abundant metaphorical resonances of human waste production. And he was vain: I do not believe I have ever met a more physically attractive person who was more acutely aware of his own physical attractiveness. But I will say this: when scientists of the future show up at my house with robot eyes and they tell me to try them on, I will tell the scientists to screw off because I do not want to see a world without him.

I firmly believe that the reason many Slytherins were easily convinced to join Voldemort was because they were treated like shit by the rest of the houses while they were growing up. Imagine spending seven of the most important years of your life being told that you were part of the bad house and therefore bad yourself. Everyone boos your quidditch team. All the houses will hang out with everyone except you. You grow up being hated by your fellow students and many of your teachers.
Now imagine someone comes along and tells you that you’re not worthless and bad. That you’re invited to join a family where you will right the wrongs committed against you. You have the opportunity to be wanted and powerful instead of a hated outcast. Several of your former classmates are telling you how great it is. How you’re welcomed and needed. These are the kids you grew up with. The classmates who went through all the same things you did. Being a Death Eater sounds pretty good now.
I’ve been waiting for a post like this.
BLESS THIS POST
I was always bothered by the scene at the end of book 7, when the students are asked whether they want to fight the incoming Death Eater army. The Slytherin students are all like, “Uh. No?” And they’re treated like terrorists for it. In the movie, they’re even locked in the school dungeons while everyone cheers.
Did nobody stop to think and realize that if the Sytherin students had stood and fought, they would have been facing their own parents on a battlefield? Even if some of them weren’t really on board with the whole Death Eater thing, expecting them to fight was just cruel. They were children. The oldest of them were seventeen. Babies. And their own professors were asking them to shoot illegal killing spells at Mum and Dad.
Imagine you are a Slytherin and you are staying behind to defend your school and maybe restore some honor to your House. The other students are all giving you mistrustful glares. You know they’re waiting for you to start hitting them in the back with stunning spells. You consider doing it, too, because you’re already starting to regret the choice you made.
Then the battle begins, and you are up against a crowd of strangers who aren’t strangers at all. You recognize voices, muffled behind masks but still piercingly familiar. Your uncle. Your cousin. Your best friend’s big sister.
And then you see a tall man in expensive grey robes. A moment later you notice the small, curvy woman next to him, wand ready. They are guarding each others backs.
You recognize their shoes.
No! Please, don’t!
#every acting award ever #i know a lot of people criticise ten for being whiny and difficult and bratty in this scene #i feel that those who do have pretty much completely missed the entire arc of ten’s character development #of all the new!who doctors he is the most painfully perfectly HUMAN incarnation #nine is the battle-weary scarred alien destroyer of civilisations. #eleven is a dorky alien dude with a penchant for hats and a dark streak the size of an oncoming storm. #not that ten doesn’t have his alien or oncoming storm aspects. he does. but predominantly he is HUMAN. #he was born from sacrificing himself as nine to save rose. he was born BECAUSE of her.#throughout his entire story arc ten delights in humanity. so many times he WANTS to be human. to take that slow path with rose. #at one point he even IS human in the family of blood storyline. #and he is TERRIFIED - as we all would be - of disappearing. of course as a timelord he doesn’t die. #but HE - as ten. as the man who loved rose and martha and donna. - HE won’t exist anymore #of course he rails against it like any human would. he wants to cling on to life. the life he knows. his identity. his humanity. #and this is his reward? oh baby. #so he rants and raves and is sadly startlingly painfully human. and then that last gif. #he pulls himself back. he KNOWS he’s being whiny. he knows that in the bigger scheme of things he still lives.#so he gets on with it. he was born for rose and now he dies for wilf. #he dies for wilf and he dies for DONNA. he’s giving her her granddad back. #and this is why i love ten. always and forever.(via virginiachance)
Do not go gentle into that good night.
OMG NO, SERIOUSLY GUYS. THIS IS NOT COOL. I HAD ONE OF THESE THE OTHER DAY. I WAS JUST CHILLING OUTSIDE DURING THE NIGHT AND RELAXING, YOU KNOW HOW IT IS. AND I WAS ENJOYING MY BLOOD POPSICLE AND THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN MY FANGS HURT AND I’M BURNING, LIKE LITERALLY BURNING, AND MY SKIN START TO BLISTER AND I’M LIKE ”OH MY GOD WHAT IS THAT’ AND I SEE THE CRUCIFIX AND I’M LIKE ‘DUDE, WHAT THE HELL?!?!’ SO I DROPPED THAT AND TURNED INTO A BAT AND FLEW AWAY INTO NIGHT.
You win the Internet.
Well it was bound to happen at some point that your blood pop will be THE BLOOD OF OUR SAVOIR
