this week on tumblr: everyone realizes how much of a badass neville was all along
and maybe finally realizing that Snape was a complete asshole not a misunderstood man
Neville Longbottom: He woulda done it in 4 books
ok but on that note let’s give this some deeper analysis:
hermione’s worst fear was evidently failing her classes. her boggart was professor mcgonagall telling her she had failed every single class. if you view this from the same perspective you viewed neville’s boggart, it’d be “jeez hermione stop being such a nerd.” but obviously, hermione’s worst fear wasn’t failing her classes, it was failure in general because hermione viewed her academic work as her own personal strength.
now let’s apply that to neville. snape wasn’t just an abusive teacher (although he definitely was, no arguments there). snape represented everything that scared neville: being incompetent, and not living up to his parents. remember that neville’s family thought he had no magic until a very late age by wizarding standards, and his gran constantly compares his failures to his father’s achievements - neville’s own incompetence is what scares him the most, and snape reminds him of it in every class with his taunts. i believe potions was neville’s worst subject, and probably the thing he was most incompetent at, with no small part being snape’s abuse.
i think reducing neville’s greatest fear to being bullied by a teacher does a great disservice to his characterisation and his bravery. snape doesn’t scare neville on the same superficial level of a mummy or a banshee, or because he’s a rude and imposing authority figure, snape scares neville because he makes neville feel unworthy. so does his grandmother. and that’s his real fear.
i don’t care if a character is immortal i want to know their age. their exact age. i want to know how many centuries they’ve been around. if they died before they became immortal i want to know how old they were then. don’t give me that “age: immortal” shit. do not go there
do u ever see someone reALLY cute in public and you just kinda ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
Still to this day my favorite comic
Okay let me tell you this story my teacher told me in like 6th grade that I still somehow remember to this day. And by somehow, I mean it was fucking hilarious and I’ll never stop laughing.
In college she was a teacher’s aid for an anatomy class or something or another. On the day they were suppose to examine an actually corpse one of the past students came in with an empty body bag. To put it simply, he pretended to be the dead body they were going to examine that day.
She knew this shit was going to be hilarious so she played along and pretended everything was going according to the plan. When the instructor came in and didn’t even check to make sure everything was in order. Nope, came in around the same time as the students and began the lesson straight away.
About 5 minutes a low moan came from the body bag, like something you’d hear out of a zombie movie.
Some of the closer students tilts their head and frown, but they doesn’t say anything. The instructor doesn’t even notice.
A little bit afterwards he moans loader. A few more people hear it this time around. They are understandably a bit worried, and a bit scared. This time the Instructor does notice, but he rolls his eyes.
For the next 10 minutes there is no noise from the body bag. The students have calmed by this point and the Instructor is winding down his lecture and about ready to move on to the practical.
Right as the Instructor moves over to the table the body bag is sitting on, the dude sits straight up in the bag and makes the stupidest zombie moans known to mankind.
Everyone straight up flips their shit. One of the girls ends up puking because she’s so scared and the rest of the students are running out the classroom, knocking over furniture, and screaming in terror.
IT GOT BETTER
idk what I was looking at but my beard looks GREAT in this pic
do you ever sit there and wonder what life must be like for people without anxiety
like they just
without worrying about them first
Anxiety is an excuse
I hope you walk barefoot on a world of legos for the rest of your life
The first time Tony Stark had an anxiety attack he thought he had been poisoned.
think about that
People who can keep their cool when being told off or made fun of are not to be messed with
