I just really like my icon right now

Beauty is not long hair, skinny legs, tanned skin or perfect teeth. Believe me. Beauty is the face of who cried and now smiles, beauty is the scar on your knee since you fell when you were a kid, beauty is the circles when love doesn’t let you sleep, beauty is the expression on the face when the alarm rings in the morning, it’s the melted makeup when you have a shower, it’s the laughter when you make a joke you’re the only one who can understand, beauty is meeting his gaze and stopping understanding, beauty is your gaze when you see him, it’s when you cry for all you paranoias, beauty is the lines marked by time. Beauty is what we feel in the inside which also shows outside us. Beauty is the marks the life leaves on us, all the kicks and the caresses the memories leave us. Beauty is letting yourself live.

My tea’s gone cold I’m wondering why I got out of bed at all the morning rain clouds up my window and I can’t see at all and even if I could it’ll all be  G  R  A  Y

The Flying Car

several sunlit days

man some anons are on point with their suggestions

suzie-guru:

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. 

Let me tell you about scared. Your heart is beating so hard, I can feel it through your hands. There’s so much blood and oxygen pumping though your brain, it’s like rocket fuel. Right now you could run faster and you could fight harder, you could jump higher than ever in your life, and you are so alert it’s like you can slow…down…time. What’s wrong with scared? Scared is a superpower.

The Twelfth Doctor in Listen

chandlerbean:

I think the most Slytheriny Slytherin there ever was was Slughorn. He was so freaking ambitious, but he wasn’t a particularly great wizard himself. So he cultivated a little following of great wizards to do all the work for him. He was never evil or mean or cruel like a dark wizard though. He got all this sway in powerful places because he was nice to, encouraged, and manipulated powerful wizards when they were young. And then he literally never had to do anything for the rest of his life. All these great wizards just gave him free stuff and listened to his opinions on politics and business because he had been their mentor. If anyone was being a Slytherin the right way, it was this guy.

We know that harry and Dudley got together on holidays and it was strained but they still did it

And I just love that so much

After the war, Harry coming to the Dursleys and explaining that they’re free now and briefly telling Dudley what happened

Harry insisting that a telephone be kept in the house do Dudley can contact him if he needs

Dudley going to uni and he grows up a bit, in the same way that James did, and like he always retains some level of jerkishness but, as cs lewis would say, the cure had begun

Dudley having a girlfriend who cannot freaking stand his parents and really opens his eyes bc she’s like no Duds that’s not normal parental behavior

Dudley getting over his fear of magic, just a little, and he’s not going to ask Harry about it but he can hear the word wizard without flinching and some of it’s actually very interesting

Ginny and Dudley interacting can you imagine she wouldn’t sugarcoat anything and they go out to dinner and harry excuses himself to go to the restroom and she says ‘you were a complete ass to harry’ and ‘I know’ but she considers him and decides to maybe give him a chance, for Harry’s sake, and tells him so, but that if he messes Harry over she’ll give him a piggy tail again

God basically these two learning from their mothers and being in basically the same rolls but getting over their respective issues, at least enough to see each other a few times a year

Coming to each other’s respective weddings. Dudley being at his mums and finding Harry’s crumpled wedding invitation in the rubbish bin, getting pissy and announcing that he’s going, and he does, and it’s overwhelming and everyone knows who he is but they’re all very polite and he gets roaring drunk with this bloke who plays some sport and he’s hilarious and there’s a little boy whose hair keeps changing and Harry treats him like a son and the Weasleys mean so much to Harry and he sees that and it’s, again, an eye opener for Dudley

Harry comes to his wedding-Ginny, too-and she doesn’t let go of his hand and they shake hands and Dudley tells Harry that he’s glad they could come and Ginny and his wife are both no nonsense kind of girls and they actually click

Ginny and Harry hosting their first big holiday meal and suggesting that they invite Dudley and his wife, too

They spent holidays together so I’m guessing that means Dudley’s wife knew about magic

Their children interacting with each other is just an amazing thing

I need more of this
