"Are you sure that’s a real spell?" said the girl. "Well, it’s not very good, is it? I’ve tried a few simple spells just for practice and it’s all worked for me. Nobody in my family’s magic at all, it was ever such a surprise when I got my letter, but I was ever so pleased, of course, I mean, it’s the very best school of witchcraft there is, I’ve heard—I’ve learned all our course books by heart, of course, I just hope it will be enough—I’m Hermione Granger, by the way, who are you?”

having grown up with the HP series, i have said on multiple occasions that i am hermione granger. it’s no coincidence that we’ve never been in the same room, and i too am a magical bossy know-it-all with big hair who’s smart in school.

but now…now it’s OFFICIAL. and here are the pics to prove it~

Argentina: doing it right. After passing a groundbreaking gender identity law on Wednesday, Argentina, which became the first Latin American country to legalize same-sex marriage, now leads the entire world when it comes to trans rights.
The new law, which was passed by 55-0 and is expected to be signed by president Cristina Fernandez, grants trans people the right to legally change their gender identity without having to get approval from doctors or judges–and, importantly, without having to change their bodies at all first. Not having a valid ID that matches your gender identity is a huge barrier to access to education, employment, health care, you name it. As Kalym Sori, an Argentinian trans man said, “This is why the law of identity is so important. It opens the door to the rest of our rights.”

GOOD FOR YOU ARGENTINA!

Cecil veers off into one of the storage areas and Carlos can immediately tell why. There’s light coming from that way, stark and more modern, and then there’s a giant, free standing arch. It’s a little taller than Carlos and if he reached his arms straight out, he would be able to easily hold the sides of it, pick it up, even. But who keeps an arch in a basement?And then he sees Dana, and the blood, and the glass.It’s not an arch, it’s a mirror and it’s been forcibly shattered to the point where no glass remains in the frame.

So yeah, this WTNV boarding school RP w/ sextonviolets is pretty much my favorite project right now. Terrible things just started happening to the Radio Club students… ^_^

This just punched me in the heart.

This is so beautiful and sad.

Drawn for this prompt in the HSWC bonus round. The fact that the female pharaoh has horns and fins and is accompanied by a glowing vampire might be enough to suggest this isn’t very historically accurate, but phooey to that! It was fun!

I was really confused by the “isn’t very historically accurate” remark until I realized that the geometric patterns are pretty typical New Kingdom (maybe say 1400 BCE?) designs, but the only overlap of glowing vampires with periods where the pharaoh would have had horns and fins would have been at least 200 years earlier. And honestly, that feels like pretty reasonable artistic license to me?

Actually I think the artist may be referring to the Rainbow Drinker’s obvious intimacy with the Pharoah. Note the royal jewelry (particularly the serpentine crown) indicating an unusually high status. Rainbow Drinkers were  generally Embalmers, revered for their ability to drain a body of all fluids in the mummification process. The rise of Rainbow Drinkers allowed the expedition of the process and opened it to to all the masses (where previously it was reserved for the elite.)
Though respected, Embalmers were craftstrolls and generally not involved with court life, especially not to this degree. What an intriguing notion though!

WTNV: On Cecil’s sister…

You know, it’s WEIRD that neither Steve nor Cecil ever says her name but they say Janice’s. Of course, Cecil may not remember he has a sister. He forgot his brother, after all.

But why doesn’t Steve?

Oh no.

Oh no, what if this is one of those things that has been re-educated out of Cecil because he found out who the vague-yet-menacing agents actually work for and they erased the wedding? And Steve’s afraid to say her name because Cecil won’t remember her (making her sad) or it will trigger some kind of episode in Cecil (and he’s trying to protect him.)

Filed under I really do hope there's a reason besides the propensity to not name female characters except for their role n a male character's life Because that would suck WTNV the september monologues spoilers
