No One Has To Die: Talking will spoil it from the start. Amazing concept and brilliant ending. Takes about 20 minutes to complete, browser game.

Off: You’ve probably already seen bits…

Weird Al will forever be my hero…especially after seeing this.

If you haven’t watched it yet just do yourself a favor and click play.



catch a falling star and
toss it back into the sky
(after having a good look,
palming heat in hands)
much like a fish out of water stars are
muffled in pockets gasping for spark
stolen for wishes
tugged out of the dark

Magic is saying “Abracadabra” and pulling the rabbit out of the hat, is stepping on a crack to break your mother’s back, is a dashboard Jesus to prevent smashups. Magic is going to church so you will get to heaven. Magic is using mouthwash so everybody will love you. Magic is the technique of controlling unseen powers and will always work if you do it by the book. Magic is manipulation and says, “My will be done.” Religion is propitiation and says, “Thy will be done.”

Religion is praying, and maybe the prayer will be answered and maybe it won’t, at least not the way you want or when you want and maybe not at all. Even if you do it by the book, religion doesn’t always work, as Jesus pointed out in one of his more somber utterances when he said, “Not everyone who says, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 7:21), the corollary to which would appear to be, “Not everyone who wouldn’t be caught dead saying, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall be blackballed from the kingdom of heaven.” He softened the blow somewhat then by adding that the way to enter the kingdom of heaven is to do the will of his Father in heaven; but when religion claims that it’s always sure what that will is, it’s only bluffing. Magic is always sure.

If security’s what you’re after, try magic. If adventure is what you’re after, try religion. The line between them is notoriously fuzzy.

Same mirror - same place - different orphan by *button-bird

*strangled cry*

NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO.
 
But also YES.
 
Because for me this is a pretty important part of the final battle. A lot of folks accused JKR of just wanting to kill people off, and Lupin and Tonks were one of the major “sins” in that category. But for me, one of the major themes of her books is vicious cycle of violence, and another is the ways ordinary people can break that cycle. It’s important that we know that Harry doesn’t stop all the pain, that he’s not the last war orphan. Just like the first War, parents and adults have to make choices, choices with consequences. 
 
Like James and Lily, Lupin and Tonks didn’t risk their lives to defeat Voldemort. They gave their lives for each other, because no one person should bear the weight of the sacrifice. They gave their lives for their son, who deserved a better world. They gave their lives for love, not for victory.
 
I think it’s important to see the ways Voldemort’s evil creates these cycles, children taken from their parents and parents taken from their children, again and again. I think it’s an important sobering note in the victory—yes, this time Voldemort is really dead, but there’s another baby this time, another infant who will never know his beautiful, wonderful parents because of Voldemort and his message of hate and violence. Another child who will grow up wondering where he came from, what his parents were like, what would be different if they were alive.
 
But it’s also beautiful that Teddy will have such a different experience. And his experience will not be different because Voldemort is “really gone.” His experience will be different because his grandmother will tell him about his brilliant mom. Because Harry will tell him about his wonderful dad. Because Harry will help him deal with his pain and loss, be a sympathetic ear who understands what it’s like to grow up without your parents. Because the Weasleys will welcome him as another grandchild, and he’ll grow up with Victoire to throw dirt at, and James as a little brother. His experience won’t be different because Harry won a war, it will be different because of love.
 
That’s the whole story of Harry Potter. Sometimes we have to fight for what’s right, but what really makes life worth living and what really changes the world isn’t magic or power or moral superiority. It’s love.

YOU’RE TOO GOOD AT WHAT YOU DO (list of amazing actress and some of their movies):
↳ Anne Hathaway “"I kind of got my big break with ‘The Princess Diaries’ and during the press rounds for that everyone asked me: ‘Did you always want to be a princess growing up?’ And the truth was, no I wanted to be Catwoman."
