the “you live with your parents” insult is really flaccid because a metric shitton of cultures don’t see “leave the house forever” as some grandiose moment of liberation that’s so important to the development of a person that it has to happen as fast as possible. until i came to the USA i didn’t know a single person who was pressured by their parents to leave the house because they’re “too old to stay there” or whatever. in puerto rico it is really common to stay with your parents until they and you are both stable enough that you can leave. whaddaya know, there are cultures that don’t place a stigma on being poor or wanting to care for your family or needing your family to care for you for some other reason.

Did you ever just feel so lucky for knowing someone you met online?
Like.. I was one click away from not following you. I was one second away from never even knowing of your existence.
I would never have been this happy.
That feeling when you read a book not worth the paper it was printed on
I forgot to mention that I also ship Lavender Brown/Parvati Patil like anything!!
On Saturday and Sunday night, I binge-read Harry Potter fanfiction like nobody’s business. I’ve noticed something that I find myself very interested in, at this point, is - well, you know how Harry and Hermione joined the Weasley family via Harry/Ginny and Ron/Hermione? I’m not a fan of either pairing (since I see the Trio and Ginny as siblings), but I still love the idea of Harry and Hermione as part of the Weasleys.
I LOVE Harry/Ron. I love it. I really, really do. I can imagine them as an old married couple. I like the idea of Harry becoming part of the Weasley family through a marriage to Ron. And I’m also oddly fond of Hermione/Percy, even though there’s not too much of that pairing around.
I’m just really enjoying LGBTQ Harry Potter fanfiction. I read a wonderful one on Saturday night about Ginny coming out as lesbian to her family, and it was so good I cried out of one eye (which is common for me when I read touching fanfiction - it’s always just the one eye). I mean, love is beautiful and it comes in so many more forms than the heterosexual love between characters that was depicted in the HP canon and confirmed by J.K. Rowling’s interviews afterward (which reveal that secondary characters Neville married Hannah, George married Angelina, Percy married Aubrey, Luna married Rolf, Cho Chang married a Muggle dude etc.) I am here for all the LGBTQ interpretations of the HP characters.
