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.

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. 

So…in closing…

roarrrrrrrr!

[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.

"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.
