Amy, this is low, even for you.
do you think sneaking out is ever a problem at hogwarts? like beyond secret passages to hogsmeade for late-night hogsmeade.
imagine there’s this small muggle scottish town not far from hogwarts. just a quick broom hop.
and some especially rambunctious muggleborns start hanging out around there. they sneak out on days no one’s looking for students, quidditch matches and hogsmeade weekends.
sometimes they go to the little movie theater and the workers are always baffled. this town isn’t exactly a tourist spot, but every so often, a group of kids just show up out of nowhere. there’s a core few, but there’s always at least a couple who watch these movies like they’ve never even heard of the concept of the moving picture before. and they just sit there with their eyes wide and these big smiles.
and they always go out to eat after, but never to a restaurant, no. they go to the convenience store and wipe out the junk food and candy aisle. and they carry the leftovers like they’re going into hibernation.
sometimes it’s just a couple of them. they sit at the cafe and the waitresses all eavesdrop on them because they say the weirdest things like “it’s so nice to eat without wax dripping on our heads, eh?” or “you look kind of different under electric lighting. i’m not used to it.”
their only friend in town is the guy who works in the music shop. they hardly ever buy anything, but the guy plays the newest music for them whenever they stop in. he fills them in on new albums and singles that just came out. a few girls ask about one tv show. he doesn’t pry, but once one of the teens told him they just “don’t have access to this stuff”
sometimes they just sit in the park all day, drinking soda and eating candy bars, and just read magazines, with more piled around them.
it’s not that they wish they weren’t at hogwarts or that it’s a prison to break out of. sometimes being surrounded by magic can just be too much. they get homesick for a whole other way of life.
This is 100% what everyone does in their room when they are alone, and this girl filmed it. Bravo.
this is my favorite video in all of human history
I WAS LOOKING FOR THIS THE OTHER DAY THIS CUTE GIRL her laugh is so infectious goddammit

I get a bit annoyed when people are like “ughhh did you even read the book” in relation to Shakespeare, because he didn’t write books, he wrote plays. They weren’t really meant to be read, they were meant to be watched, so even if people have only seen a film version (because that’s way more accessible than a stage version, let’s be honest) then they’re still experiencing it in the way it was originally intended and there’s nothing wrong with that. Just stop telling people to read Shakespeare and start telling people to watch it okay.
When you’re sightreading a piece and suddenly it gets 10x harder
"The most difficult thing I had to achieve in this film was creating the fabric for the Captain America Stealth Suit. The Russos were very specific that they wanted a suit that was made of textured, woven, hard fabric like a Kevlar and not a printed stretch suit like you see over and over again in these films. But in reality it needed to be made of a stretch fabric that would allow movement and comfort, as well as the ability to be constructed into a more realistic military type trouser and protective top. I went through many incarnations of printed textures on stretch which then posed a whole new set of challenges and problems. The HD cameras made raised textures strobe or moiré. So finding the right one became a trial. Then the printing ink would shine like plastic, which I disliked. It took four months of research and development to create a texture that seems so simple and was yet, so complicated.” - Judianna Makovsky
what if “lucy” was about lucy liu casually beating up pervy white dudes instead and the story was about an asian woman who gets justice from the white men who used and abducted her. and it was an effective commentary on white imperialism, the violent commodification of asian people and asian culture by western society, the demonization of asian people, and the continuing history of violence on unwilling asian bodies especially those of asian women by white people.
what if this movie wasn’t going to be a bunch of white imperialist nonsense masquerading as something “progressive” at the expense of faceless nameless asian bodies — runnereight
