In the spirit of the Month of Halloween, I have painted my nails in super-spoopy Cabal montage. A silver key, Ogham runes, Horst’s purple and vampire fangs, a mysterious bubbling liquid, a talking skull, and a red X. No, I am not an artist. Yes, I did these alone. Yes, I am a loser like that.
AU: James and Lily live.
#thEY COULD HAVE HAD A NICE LIFE#James letting two year old Harry ride in front of him on his broomstick#LILY SHOWING HARRY HOW TO BAKE THE MUGGLE WAY BECAUSE SHE THINKS IT TASTES BETTER AND NOT TO LISTEN TO HIS FATHER BECAUSE HE’S AN IDIOT#And Harry will ask if he’s an idiot why did you marry him#and she’ll just shrug and say that he got under her skin enough that she couldn’t let him go#And James told himself he wouldn’t write to Harry at school because he wasn’t going to be that kind of annoying dad#bUT HE DOES AND SOMETIMES HE AND SIRIUS GO TO HOGSMEADE AND JUST SO HAPPEN TO RUN INTO HARRY#GODFUCKINGDAMMIT I HATE IT ALL
Why is it not helpful to say “not all men are like that”? For lots of reasons. For one, women know this. They already know not every man is a rapist, or a murderer, or violent. They don’t need you to tell them.
Second, it’s defensive. When people are defensive, they aren’t listening to the other person; they’re busy thinking of ways to defend themselves. I watched this happen on Twitter, over and again.
Third, the people saying it aren’t furthering the conversation, they’re sidetracking it. The discussion isn’t about the men who aren’t a problem. (Though, I’ll note, it can be. I’ll get back to that.) Instead of being defensive and distracting from the topic at hand, try staying quiet for a while and actually listening to what the thousands upon thousands of women discussing this are saying.
Fourth—and this is important, so listen carefully—when a woman is walking down the street, or on a blind date, or, yes, in an elevator alone, she doesn’t know which group you’re in. You might be the potential best guy ever in the history of history, but there’s no way for her to know that. A fraction of men out there are most definitely not in that group. Which are you? Inside your head you know, but outside your head it’s impossible to.
This is the reality women deal with all the time.”
Can we talk about how Anne Hathaway’s husband Adam Shulman looks a bit like William Shakespeare… who had a wife named Anne Hathaway?

Omg that pun is amazing
Okay kiddos, enough of you asked, so here’s a tutorial. This is primarily for getting an engraved look on your props/accessories/etc, though I’m throwing in basic foam craft technique tips as well.
Let’s use this bracer as an example:
"i don’t have any advice, but it seems hopeful enough.”
”yeah… i’m not so sure.”
