Once upon a time

CHECK OUT your differences in wand technique here and how fluidly and casually Ron throws a curse in comparison to Harry and Hermione Hermione has done the reading and is technically perfect of course Elbow straight; wrist bent Wand tip aligned with left sightline left arm held loosely behind her for balance Harry hasn’t ever done the reading Grip too tight; elbow locked Shoulders raised Left elbow cranked in awkwardly against his body Kids’ll imitate his awful technique and Junior Aurors it’ll make their parents nuts; don’t twist your neck like that I don’t care what Auror Potter does When you save wizardkind you can hold your wand however you want until then drop your shoulders Ron’s been around wand users since birth practiced with twigs and then his brothers’ wands Look at how the movement flows from his center the way he uses his whole body throws out his opposite hand behind him to counterbalance the movement Harry and Hermione get their wands into position and then throw the curse Ron’s spell starts mid-motion because he knows his wand will be in position in time  (helenish)

Mmmmmmm, yes.

There will be a day when I see this and I will scroll past.

Today is not that day

Plus Ron is casting his curse non-verbally. That’s very difficult and it requires training and practice to successfully cast a nonverbal spell. It’s success is determined by the amount of concentration and mental discipline of the witch or wizard. But this is Ron Weasley he likely didn’t put training and practice into casting non-verbal spells, this advanced magic comes to him naturally. The only other time we see him cast a non-verbal spell is when he accidentally made it snow in the great hall, and that was only because Lavender was glaring him down after he said Hermione’s name while he was unconscious in the hospital wing. He felt crappy and his emotions were so intense he unknowingly made it snow. Here he’s trapped in a muggle cafe, with his best friend and the girl he loves. He’s probably scared, and angry but most of all protective. He wants to defeat these Death Eaters without anything happening to his team. His emotions are intense again and that allows him to cast a powerful non-verbal spell. No, not even a spell, a curse. We’ve seen Hermione cast non-verbal spells loads of times but even here she says the curse to ensure it’s potency. Ron is concentrated and disciplined enough in this moment to curse a Death Eater without any words at all.

All of this is wonderful. Potterheads are my favorite people.

[…] “Did you see me disarm Hermione, Harry?” 
“Only once,” said Hermione, stung. “I got you loads more than you got me -” 
“I did not only get you once, I got you at least three times -” 
“Well, if you’re counting the one where you tripped over your own feet and knocked the wand out of my hand -”

First time I have read this and thought….there’s a double meaning in this.

My mom is freaking out because she can’t find the banana bread she just baked so now she thinks she imagined making it the entire time and that she’s going mad when in reality I stole the banana bread from the kitchen after it was done and now I’m currently eating it as she has a meltdown in the kitchen

Update: half of the bread is gone and so is all of my mom’s dignity

It looks like your mom’s gone

I've been seeing a lot of people talk about Gus sounding really pretentious in the movie, do you think he sounds pretentious?


I mean, that scene is word-for-word from the book, so don’t blame the movie! :) Yes, Gus is super pretentious at the start of the story. it’s a character flaw.

Gus wants to have a big and important and remembered life, and so he acts like he imagines people who have such lives act. So he’s, like, says-soliloquy-when-he-means-monologue pretentious, which is the most pretentious variety of pretension in all the world.

And then his performative, over-the-top, hyper-self-aware pretentiousness must fall away for him to really connect to Hazel, just as her fear of being a grenade must fall away. That’s what the novel is about. That is its plot.

Gus must make the opposite of the traditional heroic journey—he must start out strong and end up weak in order to reimagine what constitutes a rich and well-lived life.

Basically, a 20-second clip from the first five minutes of a movie is not the movie.

(Standard acknowledgement here that I might be wrong, that I am inevitably defensive of TFIOS, that it has many flaws, that there’s nothing wrong with critical discussion, and that a strong case could be made that I should not insert myself into these conversations at all.)

"Basically, a 20-second clip from the first five minutes of a movie is not the movie."

Thank you John Green. You should not have to defend your book or the movie that is an adaptation of, but you are entitled to do it when you feel it necessary.

Ariel and Hercules have a lot in common:

  • they’re related,
  • both want something more,
  • and both did go the distance in the end.
