I remember when I thought people in their 20’s were adults. Now all of my friends are in their 20’s and everybody is just kind of fumbling around bumping into each other, trying to figure out where the free food is
Excellent gif use
Draco Malfoy saving Harry’s ass and throwing him his wand.
#WHOEVER IS RESPONSIBLE FOR CUTTING THIS SHOULD BE BROUGHT BEFORE THE WIZENGAMOT AND THEN PUBLICLY FLOGGED
WHY WHY WAS THIS CUT?!
someone david fuckin yates obviously thought that awkward draco/voldy hug was more important
That creepy-ass hug was more important and true to the books, no matter how much you want Draco in Leather Pants. For fuck’s sake, the most character development Draco had was (partly) realizing what a little shit he is. He was never willing to throw in the good guys, he just got in over his head and crapped his non-leather pants. He was fine with being an oppressor, but he realized that his family would not be safe under Voldy’s rule. One mistake could mean torture or death and that wasn’t worth pride or power. His piddling attempts at non-compliance (not personally killing Dumbledore after being offered a way out, not instantly identifying Harry at the manor) ultimately came to nothing. Draco was not a hero in the books and did not deserve to play any heroic part in the movies. Draco was there to illustrate just how powerful a motivation fear can be. Even people “benefiting” under Voldy’s rule were terrified for their families. Even people who freely joined Voldy find themselves trapped in his servitude by fear. No one was safe. Everyone was at Voldy’s non-existent mercy. Do you not realize why that awkward hug was important? All Draco wanted was to get to his family. He had to face the horrifying reality of the winning side, the side his family picked, to get to them. And then he would continue to live a life of fear, knowing Voldy might kill them on a whim any day. I would have screamed in the theatre if this bullshit wand-throwing scene had made the final cut.
I went to Ōkunoshima ‘Rabbit Island’ in Japan today - story goes that the rabbits were brought here as test subjects during WWII and released when the war ended. With no predators (cats/dogs/hunting are all banned) the island is totally overpopulated with rabbits. They are also super friendly, they chase you, beg, and climb all over you!
When I say “boys are dumb” what I really mean is “boys have been raised in a patriarchal society that forces them into an incorrect and problematic view of masculinity that not only forces them to strip away valuable virtues from themselves, like patience and gentleness, but also forces them to view and treat women in unhealthy ways that devalues women as people and makes them into objects purely for a man’s benefit”
but it’s a lot faster to say “boys are dumb”
