“You might have got the impression that there is a little bit more to Aunt Petunia than meets the eye, and you will find out what it is. She is not a squib, although that is a very good guess. Oh, I am giving a lot away here. I am being shockingly indiscreet." - J.K. Rowling.
If the reveal had been that Petunia was a witch ~ Several years after the war, Harry tracks his aunt down to confront her with what he witnessed in the pensieve.

Nothing but love for this goofy little cupcake
She is taking none of your sexist, entitled crap today.
I wonder why people hate on swens so much
Keep a note of these blogs in particular. They work very very hard to spread rumours and to spam and attack SQ shippers and Adam with the perception that WE’RE the bad ones.
People have made up accounts, pretended to be SQ shippers, and posted the most vile things in order to muster up opposition. And some SQ shippers bought into it and started all of this ‘bad apple’ crap that is so insidious that NO MATTER HOW MANY TIMES I ask people to stop using the term, I get comments saying ‘yes, there are bad apples, but don’t call EVERYBODY a bad apple’ when the point is that the IDEA was begun by fake accounts, homophobic hate-blogs like ‘Mikey’ and others.
We won a poll and the ONLY response we got was a vague ‘yay ALL ships’ and a bunch of attacks on Adam for daring even to say THAT which wasn’t even praise or worthy of much more than a side-eye.
I’m not saying this to get people upset, I’m saying—look clearly at this fandom and realize that this isn’t about ‘ships’ it’s about all forms of oppression and how OUaT is reinforcing hierarchies through its story and throughout the fandom.
We won the AfterEllen poll. SQ is officially the biggest femslash ship out there. But it’s also the biggest movement of people who want to see equal representation for LGBT people in media/visual communication.
[ps. my only issue with AfterEllen polls is that it pits us against each other when we should be fighting together for representation. Also, some bloggers tend to celebrate the SHOWS themselves, like say True Blood which did a shameful thing when it lesbo-baited Tara/Pam and then promptly killed one of them. now, when OUaT has treated us pretty much like dirt, I think we should keep an eye on what happens next]
His congratulations doesn’t even acknowledge us, and yet every Swan Queen hater jumps out of the woodwork to attack him… and in doing so, they’re showing us more acknowledgement than his so-called support. His words mean more to them, than they do to us and that’s just sad.
We’re hateful? disrespectful? We don’t deserve praise? We’re not the ones verbally raping one of the writers.
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 parseltounge and all that awesome stuff#because lets be real harry is brave as hell but hes also cunning, determined to survive#a little duplicitious#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 inhernetly good ones
"Congratulations, Swan Queen-ers! A well-deserved victory from a fandom that never accepts defeat!"
And crying again :’)
Hedy Epstein, a 90-year-old Holocaust survivor was arrested on Monday during unrest in Ferguson. Epstein, who aided Allied forces in the Nuremberg trials, was placed under arrest “for failing to disperse.” 8 others were also arrested.
"I’ve been doing this since I was a teenager. I didn’t think I would have to do it when I was ninety," Epstein told The Nation during her arrest. “We need to stand up today so that people won’t have to do this when they’re ninety.” Epstein is currently an activist and a vocal supporter of the Free Gaza Movement.
Regina `omg I’m so in love why do you have to be so perfect Emma I wanna punch you with my mouth please marry me’ Mills
#GOOD #and yes but tbh i feel like emma is so invested in regina too #and she doesn’t realize that it’s love or anything like that because why would it even occur to her? #but the minute she’d find out that regina had those feelings it would HIT HER #the existence of the possibility would creep up and start hitting her over the head until she can’t imagine that she doesn’t love regina #she’s put so much of herself into caring about regina and respecting her and in general investment in her happiness #and the moment the idea of romance is introduced it’s like #’OH WAIT MAYBE I LOVE THIS LADY TOO’#’OH OKAY YES I THINK I DO’ #*is quietly terrified* (via scullysummers )
I have to reblog those tags (and its really really fucking strange seeing my tags back on my dash on a non-B&W post but I digress) because I absolutely 100% agree Emma can be kind of an idiot about her own emotions like she really does care for Regina but it would take her forever to realize the *why* and then she’s just like “But no! It’s not ‘love’ don’t be ridiculous I just respect her and want her to be safe and happy and protect her and make sure she eats right and is sleeping okay and she and Henry are alright and no one is trying to kill her what do you mean I’m in love with her?!”
rereblogging for 3 batches of epically accurate commentary/minific/i don’t even know but it’s so goddamn good.
