The most important line in the whole damn song. MESSAGE.
The only historically accurate line in the whole film.

I dunno how many which ways this needs to be said

Snow White twist where Snow White is played by a dark-skinned woman with snow white hair
- another twist: the story focuses on beauty in the context of racial prejudice
- the stepmother is white and known as the ‘fairest of them all’ but then this girl with dark skin grows to be more beautiful than her and she doesn’t understand and she doesn’t like it and she is threatened by it
- you can see where this is going
It’s funny, because this is actually one of the things that I find most interesting about Remus. He obviously wanted to connect with Harry; he fostered their student/teacher relationship very well. But he clearly made the decision to not connect with him in the way that he would have had James and Lily not died. Though he obviously wants to. There are so many little moment; almost reaching for Harry’s shoulder when he first says he hears Lily around the demontors; the conversation about whether or not Sirius deserves to the Kiss; the scene when Harry hears James for the first time (which breaks my heart every time). There are moments when Remus clearly wants to be there for Harry, to be the quasi uncle he should have been, but he won’t let himself.
It’s a horrible thing to do, for both of them, because they could have been the family neither of them had any more. But it’s also so deeply in character that I kind of love it. He pulls away from people, he doesn’t get involved. It’s the exact same thing he did with Tonks, only she understood what he was doing and why and wouldn’t stand for this self-destructive bullshit.
Yeah, one could argue that Harry didn’t seek Remus out during OotP, but by that stage he had Sirius, someone who had actively tried to be family for Harry basically from the moment Harry knew he was innocent. And I’ve always headcanoned that Remus was quite deliberately absent during OotP, if only to give Sirius more alone time with his godson. And then after Sirius died, who was it that didn’t write to Harry? Oh yeah, Remus. I mean, working as a double-agent in a werewolf pack is a pretty good excuse, but still, it was Remus that didn’t reach out. (This part has always confused me because the insinuation is that Remus promised to write in the first place, or Harry asked him to write, or they were maintaining some kind of correspondence before this, but we don’t see any of this actually occur at the end of OotP or start of HBP. I dunno.)
This is also one of the (many) reasons why Remus’ death sucks so incredibly hard. They had finally started to connect during DH. Maybe it was Tonks’ influence and her continued reinforcement of the idea that Remus was not a burden and people loved him regardless of his condition. Maybe it was just how long he and Harry had known each other by then. Either way, they were finally getting to a place where their relationship was what is should have always been. I’m not going to start headcanoning at you about how things would have been had Remus and Tonks not died - if I start, I won’t stop.
So, to summarise, I agree wholeheartedly with you. But people will always blame Harry for things that weren’t his fault. I can’t understand it, but it will always happen. Generally, people just kinda suck.
Scotland has been building up to voting on whether they should become Independent from the United Kingdom since 2012, the Idea’s been in the works since the ’50s. Yes voters want to be independent, No voters want to stay in the UK.
The parties backing Yes are the snp, the…
Okay, I’ve been ignoring most of the factually inaccurate rubbish about the referendum that’s been flying around Tumblr, but since this is actually scaremongering at it’s finest…
I’m not going to bother debunking any of the political stuff, because frankly I don’t care about it enough to spend the time, but in case this actually has anyone worried:
Go about your business as normal people, there is no need to worry as yet, and if at some point it does become necessary to stay inside/avoid certain places someone official will tell you.
