The US budget is like a 1st grader playing Oregon Trail. Spend all the money on ammunition so you can shoot at stuff, then wonder why your wagon is falling apart and everyone is dying of dysentery.

As a foster child, I’m pretty sure Emma Swan is used to people moving on with their lives and forgetting about her the moment she stepped out of their lives because she didn’t belong there. Probably the reason why she keeps running away.
It is no surprise that Emma is so vulnerable and therefore quite rude to Killian- he is one of the only persons, if not the only, who swore to her that not a day will go by that he wont think of her he has been the only one in her life to promise her “eternal” affections - love.
Plus, he is the one person who never managed to move on with his life after meeting her. The only person who moved oceans and realms to follow her, to find her.
He’s literally the one person in her life who couldn’t forget her, who couldn’t live on as if she had never been.
It is no surprise that she was so vulnerable with him after and therefore kind of rude. because nobody held his promise like Killian Jones did.
because nobody loves her the way he does
every living creature on Earth dies alone.
Game of Thrones season 4 challenge - Day 6: Favorite Quote
but let’s talk about this for a second
let’s talk about how Game of Thrones, the show, has taken each of the female characters featured in this gifset (which is a lovely gifset, don’t get me wrong), and then most of the rest of them and “hurt” them in mental, physical, emotional and narrative ways. Like how with Meera, they had to add in a “girlfight” with Osha because that’s what women do, they’re catty and bitchy and try to undercut each other. Let’s talk about how they featured Dany naked so often that Emilia Clarke had to request they keep her clothes on, and persistently sexualized a character who in the books is 14 years old and subject to unwanted, repeated marital rape (after they changed the wedding night scene from consensual to non-consensual sex, because it’s more edgy). Ellaria they did surprisingly all right with (from what I watched) but she’s a woman of color and thus sexually “exotic” and alluring and a temptress, according to TV!show logic. While this dimension of her character was hinted at in the books, it became an excuse for more brothel scenes in the show (shock! surprise!)
And let’s not even get started on Cersei and how That Scene in the episode that made me quit watching the show was clearly designed to punish her for messing with fan favorite Good Guy Tyrion, and the director then insisted that he didn’t film a rape scene. Or how Brienne has been turned into a stone cold badass who kills men because she can, because a Strong Female Character who doesn’t like killing and has emotions and is (in the books) 17 or 18 and deeply devoted to the ideal of chivalry and honor and heroism…. well we can’t have that. She is the Warrior Woman and therefore becomes the Amazon trope. Sansa, likewise. They added in the gang-rape scene in season 2 which was described by the director, again, as “beautifully choreographed and like a ballet.” They take every opportunity to show her belittled or powerless or abused except when she finally becomes A Player and hence now “worthy” of consideration. And of course, heaven forbid we acknowledge the utter grossness of what Petyr’s doing to her.
Let’s talk about how they made Asha/Yara, of all people, use the word “cunt” to insult Theon. Or how Arya has been turned into this cheery little “badass” when she’s actually a traumatized child soldier. Or the butchery of Catelyn Stark. Or how they had to turn Robb Stark’s wife, Jeyne, from a quiet, shy, sweet ordinary noblewoman to spunky tomboy, not like other girls!Talisa, because otherwise why would Robb decide to marry her, yanno? It couldn’t, you know, be his honor and that he’s Ned Stark’s son and following in the same tragic path in a world that often doesn’t reward boilerplate heroic choices.
We could talk about appeasing the fans who hated Roz the Plot Device Whore by having her brutally murdered by Joffrey, or the countless naked women and brothel scenes included to remind you that the show is on HBO, or the way sexual violence is persistently used when not needed, or the way consensual sex scenes specifically and consistently become non-consensual, or the many other ways in which yes, indeed, everywhere in this show!world, they hurt little girls and women alike, and one of the main reasons I am no longer watching despite being a die-hard ASOIAF fan since 2003.
but she shouldn’t have to

"I told you both of us could fit."
"I fucking hate you right now."
When people say these books are children’s books, as if to demean them, I balk. These books dealt with themes that adults do not fully understand or wish to. It dealt with racism, classism, sexism, homophobia, prejudice, and general ignorance. These books taught us that it doesn’t matter how you were raised, but that you get to choose to be kind, loyal, brave, and true. They taught us to be strong under the pressures of this world and to hold fast to what we know to be right. These books taught me so much, they changed me as a person. So just because they’re set against a fantastical backdrop with young protagonists does not mean that their value is any less real.
First book: Starts with the double murder of a pair of twenty-one year olds who were much missed and leaving their baby son a war orphan. A child growing up in abusive conditions that would give Cinderella the horrors. Dealing with peers and teachers who are bullies. The fickleness of fame (from the darling of Gryffindor to the outcast.) The idea that there are things worth fighting and dying for, spoken by the child protagonist. Three children promptly acting on that willingness to sacrifice their lives, and two of them getting injured doing so.
Second book: The equivalent of racism with the pro-pureblood attitude. Plot driven by an eleven year old girl being groomed and then used by a charming, handsome older male. The imbalance of power and resultant abuse inherent in slavery. Fraud perpetuated by stealing something very intimate.
Third book: The equivalent of ableism with a decent, kind and competant adult being considered less than human because he has an illness that adversely affects his behaviour at certain times. A justice system that is the opposite of just. Promises of removing an abused child from the abusive environment can’t always be kept. The innocent suffer while the guilty thrive.
Fouth book: More fickleness of fame. The privileged mistreating and undermining the underprivileged because they can. A master punishing a slave for his own misjudgment, and the slave blaming herself. A sports tournament which involves mortal risk being cheered by spectators. A wonderful young man being murdered simply because he was in the way. A young boy being tortured, humilated and nearly murdered.
Fifth book: PTSD in the teenage protagonist. Severe depression in the protagonist’s godfather, triggered by inherited mental health issues and being forced to stay in a house where abuse occured. A bigoted tyrant who lives to crush everyone under her heel, torturing a teenager for telling the truth in the name of the government (and trying to suck his soul out too). The discovery that your idols can have feet of clay after all. An effort to save the life of someone dear and precious actually costing that very same life. The loss of a father-figure and the resultant guilt.
Sixth book: The idea that a soul can be broken beyond repair. Drugs with the potential for date rape are shown as having achieved exactly that in at least one case, resulting in a pregnancy. Well-meaning chauvinism trying to control the love life of a young woman. Internalised prejuidce resulting in refusing the one you love, not out of lack of love but out of fear of tainting them. The mortality of those that seem powerful and larger than life.
Seventh book: Bad situations can get worse, to the point where even the privileged end up suffering and afraid. More internalised prejudice and
fearhysterical terror of tainting those you love. Self-sacrifice and the loss of loved ones, EVERYWHERE. Those who are bitter are often so with a reason. The necessity of defeating your inner demons, even though it’s never as cool as it sounds. Don’t underestimate those that are enslaved. Other people’s culture isn’t always like your own. Things often come full circle (war ending with the death of a dearly-loved pair of new parents and their orphaned baby son living with his dead mother’s blood relative instead of his young godfather). Even if ‘all is well’ the world is still imperfect, because it’s full of us brilliant imperfect humans.
So… still think that Harry Potter is a kid’s series with no depth?
btw in case yous have slept on this - there is an amazing tv show that exists on this earth called I Wanna Marry Harry where they’ve tricked a group of american girls into thinking they’re on a dating show competing for the heart of Prince Harry and it’s fucking phenomenal
shut the fuck up hermione you fucking nerd.
Why is it that evil villains always find poison to inject into their victims like just literally fill the syringe with air and just stick the needle between their toes or something. It’ll mimic a heart attack and the victim will die pretty quick and NO ONE WILL ASK MANY QUESTIONS BECAUSE IT’LL LOOK LIKE A HEART ATTACK
first of all how do you know this information i feel like the government doesnt want you to know that
