i came out to have a good time and i’m honestly feeling so attacked right now.

ALISON IS PUSHING EMILY AWAY TO KEEP HER SAFE

After reading [this], I felt reassured that Alison’s intentions were pure. She hasn’t been manipulating Emily in the same way she used to, she doesn’t want Emily to stay. At least not for now. She needs to keep Emily safe. Then it clicked….

This [theory] by AnalyzingA analyses a few key scenes that proves that Ali had been planning this whole Cyrus thing since 5x05.

During the time, everyone was freaking out about that short moment of hesitation from Alison when Emily asked, “Ali? Are you asleep?”

Carrying on from what Anonymous said from the first link… It wouldn’t make sense for Alison to have kissed Emily that night, if (at the same time) she had been planning the whole Cyrus confession. If she needed to push Emily away in order to keep her safe, why kiss her?

Unless she wanted one last moment to surrender to her feelings, to finally act on how she truly felt about Emily, before having to push her away.

Everyone thought that the hesitation was because she didn’t want to turn around (or something similar to that) but now have I just realised that her face is telling something a lot different.

She knows that she shouldn’t do it. She knows that it would be a lot easier for Emily to pull away if she didn’t turn around, if she let Emily think that she didn’t feel anything for her. It looks like she’s having an internal struggle with herself: to do what must be done (to keep Em safe) or to turn around and explore what she feels for her.

This was the one moment where Alison wasn’t in control, where she let herself succumb to her desire. I think it’s true, Alison is making a huge sacrifice. She wants to be with Emily, but above that, she needs Emily to be safe.

By the Liars abandoning Ali and Ali forming her own team, she gives no reason for -A to target the Liars anymore. Alison will be the only target, therefore the other girls will be safe.

Anonymous sent:

Soon, it'll be revealed that what Alison had been doing all this time is protect Emily. Pushing Emily away is the only way she could keep her safe. All along it had been a sacrifice. Alison knows that danger follows her anywhere. She could've easily stopped Emily when the girl had walked away. She could've easily called her back and tell her things and manipulate her. Alison didn't. The Queen has a plan. All these haters are gonna bow down when she pulls it off.

Long Post | Harry Potter rant.

capricornicis:

Let me start off, I might be a tad bias. Severus is my second favorite character in terms of who I enjoy writing about and drawing. Canonically, he’s my absolute favorite. So I am coming as a Snape fan; however, I will 

With that said, let’s start. 

My biggest issues with Snape Haters is not because they hate Snape. Far from it, I could careless who they hate. Its their reasons and the constant cross tagging that annoys me. The cross tagging is self exploratory as to why that would get on a Snape fan’s nerves; I wouldn’t even bother with this if it weren’t for the cross tagging.  Because cross tagging, I know the three points that a Snape Hater will bring up. 

  • Snape is a terrible teacher who abuses kids.
  • Snape is terrible human who just wanted Harry and James to die so he can fuck Lily.
  • Snape wasn’t innocent in his confrontations with James and Sirius  

The first point, isn’t a lie. Let’s be honest with ourselves. 

However, it ignores quite a bit of Snape’s character. Let’s start off that he was abused and neglected as child, he was bullied relentlessly as a teenager nd there seemed to be no adult intervention, he then as a young adult is forced to work at the same place where his worse memories accrued, and he still had to act as a spy though all of this. It doesn’t excuse his behavior. It doesn’t justify his behavior. 

It does explain his behavior.  

Out of all of these, I feel Snape’s role as a double agent needs to be considered the most when discussing why he acts the way he does towards Slytherins verses students in the other houses. As much as Rowling wants to claim in the books that not all bad guys are Slytherins, let’s face it, she showed us that is the case or at least one must have Slytherin qualities to be evil. And who are the bad guys? Death Eaters. And what house did the children of Death Eaters’ were sorted in to? Slytherin.

We know from the Goblet of Fire that it was public knowledge that Snape made deal to keep out of prison, but he didn’t make a deal with the ministry like other death eaters. No, he made a deal with Albus Dumbledore. He didn’t just make a deal, Snape is working for the enemy. We never get scene of Lord Voldemort asking Snape to be spy or that it was Voldemort’s idea, as far as I can remember. So it is safe to assume that the other the other freed Death Eaters viewed Severus’s deal more treacherous than them bribing a ministry official or those who just fled. Severus is going to show that he’s not a traitor on the surface to them. And on the surface showing favoritism to not only their house, but the Dark Lord’s house, where their children are now sorted into, is going to curve that automatic assumption that Snape is a traitor. His jerkass behavior towards other students and especially Gryffindors, also makes it seem as though he is still on their side.

And I’m saying that its on the surface even in private moments with Harry and other students he still needs to keep up this behavior up. One slip up in Hogwarts, everyone knows. Not saying that Snape wouldn’t have bias at all, because nearly all the teachers do even if they are like Slughorne, who’s bias is not house related. Snape’s personal experience at Hogwarts had most likely made him bitter to Gryffindors. And by most likely, as it did. But I don’t think his childhood nor his school yeas played a major factor in the way he treated children. Because if we take that route as to explain more of his jerkish attitude, then he wouldn’t grade fairly. In the second book, we know that Hermione has higher marks than Draco. We know that Harry and Ron had received an E’s on their OWLS, one mark below O, which was Snape’s requirement for NEWTs. What does that say for his behavior then if he graded fairly? That clearly, his actions and words were deliberate. One could argue that he only graded fairly because he was forced to, but that means Dumbledore and every staff member let him acted this way towards students with no explanation. That would make several characters look disgusting in retrospect. 

Next point, I am not bothering to debunk this, because its idiotic. It is a far fetched fan base assumption that Severus only loved Lily sexually. There is no canon to support this notion. And the first part of this common argument is completely against canon. Snape goes to Voldemort to ask him to spare Lily. He’s not going to bother in asking for Jame’s safety, and Voldemort has already wanted Harry to die because of the prophecy. It would be useless to ask. And when goes to Dumbledore, he uses this memory to show that he wants to switch sides. After begging Dumbledore to protect Lily, and Dumbledore’s stupid rant, Snape asks for him to save and protect them all, including James. Does that sound like he wanted Lily’s child and husband to die so he can just fuck her? Does it really sound like that at all? 

The final common point against Snape is that he wasn’t an innocent victim is also ridiculous and can be debunked quickly by stating three words: four on one. It doesn’t matter if Snape fought back, Sirius and James tagged team him consistently and Peter either stood back and cheered and tossed some insults, and Remus just let it happened. It got to the point where James is casually sexually assaults him in public because Sirius is bored and Snape existed and Sirius tries to murder Snape the following year. One could try to spin the bullying as justified because Snape was running Death Eater wannabes, and he hates muggleborns.  But, that is not even close to the explanation we get in SWM. It also means that if Snape’s ‘bullying’ isn’t going to be justified, then so isn’t Sirius and Jame’s. 

A bit of side note, if we are going to bring up Snape’s use of the word mudblood, then one has to acknowledge that it was implied Lily Potter was aware that Snape used that word more that once and didn’t have an issue with it until he called her one. So if this is going to be brought up in any discussion about Snape as character, and conveniently ignoring how he later hates that word being used around him, then we got to question why Lily doesn’t care when it isn’t her who’s being called a mudblood. 

Sorry for how long it is and the fact I’m slightly murky on specific details on the Prince’s Tale. Its been awhile since I read the final book and I refuse to read it again. 

Thank you.

Actually Sirius tried to kill him BEFORE James assaulted him (Lily talks to him about it before the second time SWM is shown, in book 7). And yet, Severus STILL didn’t tell anyone about Remus being a werewolf until after they were adults and he believed Remus had been helping Sirius for an entire year.

Yes. I was recently reminded that Sirius pulled the prank beforehand, which makes James, Sirius, and Lily and possibly Lupin far more revolting than I originally thought.

A few years ago HP wiki had placed the werewolf incident after SWM so I was messed up on my info for while.

I wouldn’t say it says anything about Lily or Lupin. Lily knows Snape was messing around the Whomping Willow and James saved him - give or take. She knows Snape’s “theories” about Remus, but I doubt she put two-and-two together there, especially since she already does like James.

With Lupin… Sirius almost made him, unknowingly and against his will, kill or turn someone - and that’s when they’re supposed to be friends. If Remus had stood up to him, to any of them, well… he has no way of knowing that might happen to him.

It does make Lily revolting to me. She was Snape’s friend, she knew what type of crap James did to Snape. After finding Remus’s condition she had to put two to two together, she was supposedly clever like Hermione. James sexually assaulted Snape after Sirius tried to murder him, and she still continued to date James after that? The fact she started to date James in the first place will forever baffle me. If it wasn’t for the plot demanded it, there is no reason why Lily-who’s supposed to be morally the best character in the series-date James who’s such a low life. I don’t care if Lily at that point stopped being friends with Snape, it doesn’t fit the small glimpses we get of her character nor what we are told of her character. So it makes her revolting human being. 

As for Lupin, I did say possible. I’m torn on teenager!Lupin, because clearly his two best friends were terrible fucking people who used him to break the law and have fun. And the only good they did was when James saved Snape and its pretty clear he did so for Lupin’s sake.

I know people talk a lot about how damaging the prank was to severus but like… I defy you to tell me it didn’t deeply affect remus more

because think about trusting someone with your deepest darkest secret and then that someone using that secret in a manner that completely disrespects you and trivializes that secret

do not even try to tell me that the relationship between remus and sirius didn’t change permanently after that. do not even.

Here’s the thing, did Lupin even know? Though it didn’t effect Lupin more, it just effect differently if Lupin knew

Because we also got to remember both Sirius and James thought Lupin was the traitor…and this was after said prank. 

Snape almost got murdered and it’s ‘poor Lupin’? Its official. I’m starting a new HP meme. Its called: Poor Lupin. Take a tragedy that happened to another character and simply tack ‘poor lupin’ on the end. Cus, remember kids, someone had it bad, but Lupin always has it worse….even when he has it better or it’s his fault :D

Well its not his fault his douche bag friend decided to be Lord fucking Voldemort and decide werewolves are weapons to use to murder those he hates. 

But no. Lupin did not have it worse than Snape that night OP, because as I stated. Snape almost fucking died. And regardless what Rowling want’s to say in the series, she does make it apparent that death is the worse thing that can happen to you.

I honestly don’t get how she survived this. I mean it makes more sense then how she got back her bending in S1, which was a massive ass poll in my opinion.

Also, I kinda feel like her father should have died. And Su turn out to be a red lotus member to make the whole thing less shallow. 

But those are my minor complaints.

Yeah, the Season 1 finale was pretty disappointing because of how simple it was to sort out an issue that actually could have done lots for Korra’s character. Recently it was revealed that Bryke actually had known they would make at least Book 2 before Book 1 aired. Hence, why not modify the finale so that they could make the second season about Korra dealing with the loss of her bending, instead of the crazy spirit mess it was?

The entire fandom was bracing itself for someone dying. A gazillion posts on Tenzin’s death kept coming and going, but nope, not Tenzin. Everyone kept exchanging sad goodbyes, Korra with her buddies, then Su and Lin, but nothing, none of them died. Tonraq flies off, and it definitely looked like he’d die… and we don’t see him getting saved, instead we just see him dangling on that weird new metalbender’s cord.

If Su isn’t a member of the Red Lotus at the moment, her great ideas that matched Zaheer’s probably hint at her joining the group eventually. Or maybe they’re just teasing us to make us think she’ll join but she really won’t? I really don’t know anything anymore.

Well with the end of S1 the writers probably thought the was their only season to the show…however that excuse can go so for, because they could have ended that season with a cliff hanger. And if that was the end of the show, then it would have been good. 

You know what pull me out of everything, that focus on the captain who saved and helped Tonraq. I think she play a role in next season, it will have no emotional pole unlike Su being a RL member because we have no idea who she is and no one cares about her. 

That’s probably why this episode was so underwhelming, the idea no one of importance was a double crosser, no one died other than bad guys-I will get back to that, and Korra’s emotional break down just doesn’t make any sense.

The deaths of the three Red Lotus, particularly P’li and Ming-Hua, were just so gruesome and were not warranted for this episode. This show did not earn to o that their villains when they can’t do it their heroes.

And Korra’s emotional breakdown doesn’t count. I’m not asking for Ikki to go out like the Earth Queen or Mako to be crushed by Korra’s rampaged. Tenzin actually dying from that beat down? Bolin learning to lava bend to save Asami and Mako and dying from that? Su killing Lin in an act of betrayal while Lin is protecting Opal? 

I know Nick has screwed the creators over, but…c’mon ATLA has so many flaws we can’t put the blame all on Nick.

Harry Potter and the Time There Was Absolutely No Excuse For Snape’s Asshole Tendencies

Are Snape haters ever going to throw out anything other than this and Neville’s boggart? Seriously — 7 books, 8 movies and you have two things you constantly throw out there. 

Time. Singular. The
one time there was no excuse for Snape humiliating a fourteen year old girl.

And this hasn’t been brought up a million times before you felt the need to bring it up again?

And? Trust me, we all fucking know he’s a dick. But this fucking moment doesn’t out shine the fact he spent over a decade fighting, and spying for a cause for people who hated him and then dying for said cause when he had no reason too. 

Honestly, if we can’t hold to the fact James sexually assaulted and Sirius tried to murder Snape in discussions without getting told they were just ‘teenagers’, I think you guys can get over him mocking Hermione’s fucking teeth.

Guys, omg, the poison.

image

It was mercury which is a liquid metal at room temperature that is extremely toxic.

image

"Mercury and most of its compounds are extremely toxic and must be handled with care… Mercury can be absorbed through the skin and mucous membranes and mercury vapors can be inhaled… Mercury can cause both chronic and acute poisoning."

Just like how they administered it. It went through the skin.

"Symptoms of methylmercury poisoning may include impairment of peripheral vision; disturbances in sensations ("pins and needles" feelings); lack of coordination; impairment of speech, hearing, walking; and muscle weakness…

Symptoms include tremors, emotional changes, insomnia, weakness, muscle atrophy, twitching, headaches, disturbances in sensations, changes in nerve responses, and performance deficits on tests of cognitive function. Higher exposures may result in kidney effects, respiratory failure and death.

And now she is having trouble walking and she definitely looked like she was having trouble sleeping with those bags under her eyes. And that was like a litre or more of it

Our queen survived a litre of mercury running through her veins for minutes while fighting. She is so strong and no wonder she is so so sick. That would have killed a lesser person for sure.

Curious. Because mercury must be a pure metal, isn’t it? How did Su bend it out of Korra if metalbenders bend through “the impurities of metal”?

I honestly don’t get how she survived this. I mean it makes more sense then how she got back her bending in S1, which was a massive ass poll in my opinion.

Also, I kinda feel like her father should have died. And Su turn out to be a red lotus member to make the whole thing less shallow. 

But those are my minor complaints.

And in that moment, we were all Bolin.
