What if Charlie Weasley is asexual? Like what if when his brothers were going through puberty and getting crushes on girls and just obsessing over them, Charlie was just like, “Guys. DRAGONS.”
i could write seven books on how ron is not useless and how he’s a great friend to harry but i hear this woman named jk rowling already did
it kind of bothers me that after all this time people still dont understand how sorting works in harry potter
its not necessarily based on the characteristics you possess, its the ones you value, and that my friends is completely different. that is why the sorting hat considers your choice, otherwise why would he bother with your opinion
primary examples would be hermione, wormtail and lockhart

The backlash against Ridley Scott’s Exodus is gathering momentum. After Noah’s mixed reception earlier this year, more and more people are sick of seeing movies with “whitewashed” casts: White actors representing historical figures who almost certainly were not white.
The latest accusation of Exodus whitewashing relates to someone who technically isn’t even a character: the Sphinx.
The likeliest explanation is that the sculpture in this picture is not the Sphinx, but is in fact a statue of Ramses. This means that it would have been based on actor Joel Edgerton’s face.
Unfortunately, this just makes the whitewashed casting even more blatant, because real statues of Ramses II simply do not look like that. So while Exodus may not have made a “white version” of the Sphinx, Egyptian culture is still being erased and rewritten to fit in with the film’s predominantly white cast of actors.
Slytherin wasn’t the only founder to leave a concealed chamber at Hogwarts— before her death, Helga Huffelpuff created a secret room which would help all students, regardless of house affiliation or purity of blood. It’s been called many things throughout the centuries; today it’s known as the Room of Requirement.
Some of you are reblogging because you think its funny that programmers would talk to ducks. I’m reblogging because I think its funny picturing a programmer explaining their code, realizing what they did when they explain the bad code, then grabbing the strangling the duck while yelling “WHY WAS THE FIX THAT SIMPLE!? AM I GOING BLIND!”
AS A PROGRAMMER I CAN TELL YOU THAT THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT YOU FUCKING DO WE HAD TO BAN THE DUCKS FROM MY CLASSES BECAUSE EVERYONE WOULD FLIP THE DUCK OR THROW IT AT A WALL OR SOMETHING WHEN THEY FIGURED OUT THE PROBLEM IN THEIR CODE
I wish he would just miss catching that cup and it hits him on his pretty little head…maybe in the gagreel…
Yeahhh… I think Hiddleston’s hand-eye game is pretty good.
BECAUSE HE IS A GOD. I SWEAR, HE IS LOKI. HE DOESN’T EVEN FLINCH WHEN CATCHING THE CUP EVEN THOUGH HE COULD MISS IN IT A SECOND.
THE MJOLNIR CATCH AND THE CANE…I SWEAR.
3. “There can be no place for magic in Camelot.” Merlin, The Disir (S5, Ep5), 2012
Of course, you can’t talk about Colin’s insane talent without spending significant time on his most iconic role. There’s no possible way to cover all the things that are amazing about Colin’s portrayal of Merlin in one post, so I will add in his Merlin moments via scene. Like the one mentioned above.
If there is any one moment in the series of Merlin (before the series finale, that is) that made people want to cry, scream, and throw things at their telly, it would be this one.
Finally on the cusp of being able to reveal himself to Arthur, to be able to realize his destiny…but it was not to be. Merlin instead chooses to deny the ONE THING he wanted most in his entire life in order to try to protect Arthur from his horrible fate.
Say what you want about Bromance vs. OTP, but there can be no denying that Merlin loves Arthur soul deep; more than he even loves himself or his magic. Merlin gave up literally everything for Arthur here, and, in the end, Merlin’s choice turned out to be the wrong one. His decision ended up causing The Disir, as punishment, to spare Mordred’s life instead of end it, thus sealing Arthur’s fate at the Battle of Camlann.
Good GOD, the emotions Colin puts into this scene! He hardly says a word until the end, but his face! No one does acting with just their eyes and facial expression better than Colin Morgan. Seriously, I can’t think of anyone.
