we’re t h e
So I’ve started to grow a couple of plants from seeds for the first time since I was a kid playing in my mom’s garden, and today when I checked in on my little planter to water it, green little sprouts of basil had appeared after only four days! I just — I am so fucking overwhelmed with pride and wonder because I encouraged life into the world. Dude. Dude. Horticulture! These little basil babies! I am excite. Plants are so fucking rad.
Imagine Harry and Ginny a few months into their marriage and they’re so happy and in love and then one day they go shopping for food and household items and Harry just casually grabs certain items before Ginny hisses at him to "Check the prices, Harry, God! That bed set is far too expensive, we’re not going to have anything left to get the food with!" And Harry starts to laugh and say "We don’t have to worry about -" and then he stops and he and Ginny look at each other. And Harry realizes that she’s grown up having to measure out all her money and decide what she can and cannot have for a certain week or month or year. And Ginny realizes that she is actually no longer obligated to worry about money ever again.
Imagine Harry and Ginny eating dinner together and Ginny’s telling him about certain meals her mum made and teasing him about how he wolfs everything down and "Honestly Harry, you’re worse than Ron!" and Harry retorts laughingly "well old habits die hard, I had to fight Dudley for meals all the time, you at least knew you were going to eat every day!" And Ginny’s grin starts to fade and she asks "You…you didn’t get to eat everyday?" And Harry realizes what he said and he changes the subject quickly and Ginny looks at the plates in front of him and resists the urge to pile on some more potatoes. And the next day Vernon Dursley’s car is egged.
Imagine Harry and Ginny both suffering from night terrors and PTSD and agreeing that maybe going to that therapist Hermione recommended isn’t such a bad idea, and that’s how Thursday night became Therapy Night when they go out to dinner or to the pub after each session and agree that they need to talk to some Healers about introducing these sessions since therapy is still widely seen as muggle nonsense in the wizarding world.
And Ginny murmurs over her fire whiskey that sometimes she can still hear Tom Riddle murmuring in her ear, and Harry whispers that he dreams about running after his mother and father and Sirius and Remus as they disappear behind the Veil in the Department of Mysteries and he doesn’t know if he wakes from terror or regret about not making it through. And they go back home and hold each other closer that night and both wake up with raging hangovers.
if a teen wolf season passes without a group of young people dancing without a care while something REALLY REALLY BAD is happening somewhere, did that teen wolf season really happen at all???
i believe this follows the same rule as: if a teen wolf season passes without a significant portion of scenes set in the boys’ locker room showers during School At Night, did that teen wolf season really happen at all??
|White people:||You have to wait for the facts before you talk about Ferguson!|
|Eyewitnesses:||He was on his knees with his hands up.|
|Medical examiner:||There was no gunpowder residue on Mike Brown, no sign of struggle, and there were entry wounds on the inside of his arms and the top of his head, implying he was on his knees with his hands up.|
|Convenience store owner and clerk:||There was no robbery and we didn't call the cops.|
|Ferguson PD:||Okay, we admit it, Wilson didn't know anything happened at the convenience store and we determined no crime was committed.|
|White people:||Nobody can say what happened! We still have to wait for the facts to come in!|
