So it’s 3AM and It’s just occurred to me that the most telling scene in the entire Harry Potter franchise is the scene following the announcement of the participants of the Triwizard tournament.

When Harry’s name is pulled out of the cup, literally one of the first things he is asked is “did you ask an older boy to put your name in the cup for you?" or something to that effect, insinuating that, that was something nobody prepared for and that it was something that totally would have worked if anyone had been smart enough to figure it out.

However, in an earlier scene a student is turned into a hundred year old man when they try to artificially age themselves with a potion and put their name into the cup. Meaning someone trying to dangerously age themselves with potion they aren’t familiar with was something the teachers genuinely considered to be more likely than someone asking for fucking help from another student.


In other words, the wizards in Harry Potter’s world are so reliant on magic that it doesn’t occur to anyone save for people like Harry that asking for help is even an option in a given situation. This explains why wizards are so fucking ass-backwards at everything, they’re so confident that their magic is capable of doing everything for them that it has never occurred to fucking anyone that perhaps asking for help from the muggle world might be of some use.

Think about it, the wizarding world hasn’t changed in hundreds of years while in that same space of time the muggle world has figured out fucking space travel. I know it’s a cliché to say to say someone could have fucking shot Voldemort, but seriously, somebody totally fucking could have, he killed like 50 people, he was effectively a terrorist, if anyone in the wizarding world bothered to ask for help from the muggles instead of just telling them there was an invisible asshole flying around shooting death curses at everyone, they may have been able to help. 

Pretty much the only reason Voldermort thinks he’s better than muggles is because he’s able to kill them with impunity using magic, something he’s only able to do so easily because muggles don’t understand what magic is. Voldemort is basically like a fucking disease, he’s an invisible, lurking entity preying on mankind from the shadows like a cowardly piece of shit. You know what else did that? Smallpox and we stomped that to death the second we understood it. That’s the difference between muggles and wizards, when muggles don’t understand something, they figure it out.

And here’s the kicker, the only reason muggles don’t understand magic at all is because the wizarding world deliberately withholds information about it. However, even if the wizarding world kept doing that, it’d only be a matter of time until a muggle figured out what magic was and how to stop or harness it because that’s what humanity does, it pushes past what we think is impossible to see what’s on the other side. We didn’t understand the sun as a species originally and now we use it to power satellites and smartphones.

The wizarding world isn’t a realm of infinite possibilities, it’s a universe of strict limitations where boundaries are never questioned. The muggle world is where the real magic happens. That’s why during the course of the Harry Potter books, which are set between 1991 and 1998, the muggle world (our world) discovered dark matter, cloned a sheep and invented fucking MP3s while the wizarding world were literally paying some dipshit to figure out what the purpose of a rubber duck was.


Wow, I really shouldn’t think about this stuff when it’s like 3AM, it gets kind of dark.

Dominion is a new show. It’s really really really good. It’s only been 6 episodes but it’s already amazing. It contains great characters that are diverse in pretty much every way possible—race, religion, gender, sexuality, etc. They’re equally main and badass. I can go on forever about why you should watch it.



If you guys could help us it would be really great ahhh.

The show is also the same genre as Supernatural. Main characters include Michael, Uriel and Gabriel. So if you’re an Spn fan, you would actually really enjoy the episode.

I tweeted the producer and lead actor as u see in the screenshot. Don’t let me down *sobs*

Guys, Dominion is a really cool show! You should try watching it. What else are you doing this Hellatus?

At the least, please signal boost this!

Smart ladies who easily best the men in the game


Even the naive-looking characters have more to them than it seems 

Michael is ridiculously beautiful and has a sexy voice

Asker Anonymous Asks:
Shut the fuck up about 50 shades of grey. No one fucking cares
insidethelocket insidethelocket Said:





oh hun

let me just give you a quick run down of all the things wrong with this ask:

1-you assume i care what some asshole anon has to say when i have 300 pounds and i’m going kikass birthday shopping today

2-you assume id care about some asshole anon any other day of the year

3-i care about the 50 shades of grey thing. and whether you do or not is irrelevant to me because you are, after all, just an asshole anon

4- this is my blog and i’ll post whatever the fuck i want, if you cant take three fucking posts about something without turning into a soggy cum stained dishrag then i suggest you make use of that unfollow button because youre gross

5- lemme break this down for you

if you dont care about this 50 shades situation, you need to grow the fuck up and look at the facts

the fact is the book was so misinformed that all the practises about bdsm culture were ignored and shit all over.

he ignores the safeword

he legitimately rapes her

he never explains everything about bdsm culture to her, shes so misinformed its ridiculous

and all of this is going even more public than it already has and its being romanticised and released on valentines day 

like “happy valentines honey! i bought some ropes i dont actually know how to tie and a whip i dont actually know how to use and i’m going to just gloss over the fact you’re uncomfortable because that clearly doesnt matter!”

incorrect use of a whip can cause organ failure

incorrect knots used on wristst or feet can literally cause them to need to be amputated

its perpetuating rape culture in ways ive never seen it be advanced to this leve; and if you dont care then youre truly disgusting 

you dont care about the kids not fully understanding their sexuality being abused by older people who they think are totally allowed to do this shit?

you dont care about the people that will be raped because of this because hey apparently rape is sexy?

you dont care about the fact that the bdsm culture is, once again, being portrayed as people who are fucked up and must have been abused to be that way rather than normal people who enjoy a kink in their own homes?

you dont care about the fact that youre not supposed to bleed on your first time. ever. and now tons more girls are going to think that its completely normal? that tons more guys will? that tons of people are going to think its expected for the female to bleed when SHE WONT IF SHES BEEN SUFFICIENTLY TURNED ON AND STRETCHED ITS REALLY NOT THAT HARD

you dont care about the stereotype of subs not actually enjoying bdsm culture is being widespread? that all subs dislike it and simply have an ulterior motive?

you dont care about the underlying message of the book being “a woman should give everything, including herself, to a man”?

you dont care about all the people in abusive relationships that will think “oh well this must be normal then” and stay there?

christian grey is a run-of-the-mill abusive boyfriend. he isnt a dom. 

a dom loves his/her sub completely and the motto of bdsm is "safe, willing and sane" (or something like that anyone feel free to correct me)

it means that both partners have to be completely willing, with boundaries, safewords and everything worked out before they even think about touching eachother intimately. 

if something is a boundary, you dont fucking do it

that simple

if the safeword is used it stops. everything stops

that simple

a dom should treat his sub like a goddamn princess (unless they have prearranged and understand that he wont eg-pet play, slave play where anything outside of the bedroom is also in the same dynamic HOWEVER IT IS STILL CONSENSUAL SO IT IS STILL OKAY)

a dom is not christian grey

but millions of people are going to think he is and are going to think that thats the way bdsm should be and they’ll get involved in something very dangerous if they dont have the real facts.

that people will think its romantic because this shit is scheduled for valentines day  to treat your partner like shit, abuse her, and that what? getting them off absorbs you of all your shit? no. this is so fucking gross and im not taking a backseat when this shit happens

so in conclusion

literally fuck you, you insensitive fuck stain, this issue is so fucking important.

I am so glad that people get this. 

But i do have a couple little hiccups i would like to point out, I don’t mean anything against what you’ve said i agree completely but just remember all subs are at risk not just females because a sub doesn’t have to be a girl. Just like any dom could take 50 Shades of grey as fact and become dangerous, a dom doesn’t have to be male.

oh and the BDSM rule/ code thing is the 3 Ss, Safe, Sane and Consensual but pretty close :)

So just a couple little points i wanted to add but yeah people listen to this! Know the difference between BDSM and Abuse!!!

yes thank you sweetie <3 

a dom/sub relationship can be any amount of gender combinations but iwas just using male as the dom female as the dub so i could keep my thought track in line with christian/ana but yes thank you for bringing that up i might have been leading the steretype that women are always the sub and men are always the dom and im sorry for that ahh >.<

and oooh yes consensual i knew it was along that line but the word wasnt there and i was like “willing is the same kinda thing?” i dunno im sorry if that was insensitive 

I REALLY love this, and every point you made about BDSM, consent, safe words, etc—but I had one hiccup, too. Just that plenty of women do experience bleeding their first time, if their hymen was still intact. I did too—and it was totally consensual, just my body doing its thing. So there is that.

Otherwise, THANK YOU!


Some NV paintings. Approaching something like my head-canon with Cecil now, thanks to my NV goddesses, airinn and littleulvar.

Cecil and Carlos have their freaky-romantic first date at Gino’s.
One off-canon, Cecil and Carlos changing a flat in the desert (or not…). Cecil drives a 1960’s Rambler in my head to contrast with Carlos’ sporty Hybrid Coupe. <3

"The United States has not produced as many world-class Quidditch teams as other nations because the game has had to compete with the American broom game of Quodpot…There are eleven players a side in the game of Quodpot. They throw the Quod, or modified Quaffle, from team member to member, attempting to get it into the ‘pot’ at the end of the pitch before it explodes. Any player in possession of the Quod when it explodes must leave the pitch. Once the Quod is safely in the ‘pot’ (a small cauldron containing a solution which will proven the Quod from exploding), the scorer’s team is awarded a point and a new Quod is brought on to the pith. Quodpot has had some success as a minority sport in Europe, though the vast majority of wizards remain faithful to Quidditch” — Quidditch Through the Ages by Kennilworthy Whisp

I’ve come to the conclusion that Sam and Dean would take one look at Night Vale and burn it to the ground, civilians be damned.

i’ve come to the conclusion sam and dean would drive into night vale and spontaneously combust from being exposed to sexual and racial diversity and women who don’t die within a week


(via ihatethatchick)



what if sam thinks that the only way to save dean is to cure him. so he ties dean up and starts injecting him with his blood and as dean becomes more and more human again, his begs become more and more cutting like “don’t do this sammy, the trials…you’ll die.” but sam grits his teeth and keeps going on, even as blood starts to trickle out of his mouth and nose and his arms start to light up with almost-forgotten power and when the time comes for the final dose of blood dean is crying and pleading with him not to do this but sam does it anyway and there’s brilliant light that’s so powerful and dean can’t see anything but he can feel something so bright rising up within him—

the pain of seeing sam afterwards, lying unnaturally still and quiet on the ground, is the first thing to let him know he’s human again.
