I WILL BE M.I.A. TOMORROW AS I WAS TODAY SO SORRY ABOUT THAT
HUGS AND KISSES
The Magic Begins | #14. Favourite villain/anti-hero/antagonist → Dolores Umbridge
I absolutely adore Umbridge as a character. I think she’s one of the best written characters in the entire series. As well as her being brilliantly written, deliciously evil, an incredibly strong female character, and the fact that any scene she has with McGonagall is hilarious, I love Umbridge because of her relatability to real life villains.
One of the reasons I love the Harry Potter series so much is because it helps me understand the world with it’s real-life analogies. We see people like Umbridge in the real world all the time - people who step on others to gain power and who see oppressed groups as genuinely less than them, such as when Umbridge attempts to get Hagrid fired simply becuase he’s part-giant. People who try to pass laws that discriminate again PoC, queer people, and disabled people, such as Umbridge does to Lupin with the anti-werewolf legislation. There are people in the real world who abuse those they have power over, such as when Umbridge makes Harry write lines with his own blood. There are people in the real world who do evil but are still seen by the government as good people because of the money and privileges they have, such as how Umbridge gets away with so much because she’s pureblood and works in a high class job.
Achievement City-where I inevitably spend a lot of my Saturdays.
(As we all know, Tumblr is an asshole when it comes to landscape pictures, so I put some little close ups of the houses in there too. High res here.)
Who’s laughing now?
Wouldn’t it be surprising if Gavin turned out to be the craziest of them all or he remains predictable and doesn’t, but still! Burn that jester hat Gav you are King! :) Explanation on his crown and fire stuff here in case you’re all wondering. Also hey please, please do not remove my comments on my art! The version at DA is longer so feel free to take a look at that version - i hate tumblr’s picture restrictions…
casual reminder that jean valjean dragged a kid through an entire sewer just because he knew that if that kid died his daughter would be upset and he can’t stand to see her upset.

I love Lupita Nyongo’s Brother
because he literally did
exactly what we would do
if we went to the Oscars
except he did it 220022932 times better.
my friends sister was telling me about how in highschool a guy tried to take a picture up her skirt as she was walking up stairs and she saw, grabbed his phone, broke it in half, and handed it back to him and said “you can tell your mom why your phones broken”
for a second I forgot about flip phones and I was like how in the holy hell did she rip a phone in half
I just thought she was super pissed
When people ask me what rape culture is, or try and tell me that it doesn’t exist, I’m going to show them this article.
