"You'll stay with me?" "Until the very end."




Hi! I'm Victoria. I am a twenty-one-year-old college student at SUNY New Paltz, where I'm studying theatre and creative writing. I'm secretary of Dumbledore's Army of New Paltz. Harry Potter is incredibly important to me.

You can see the difference in how these characters were brought up clearly from the younger years. Harry if you remember has to be prompted to tell his name, most likely because the Dursley’s hated to acknowledge he is important. Ron, as an afterthought tells his name as though he always gets ahead of himself and must be reminded all the time to tell others who he is. While Hermione recites her name as though she has walked up to so many kids trying to make friends, because her parents told her the easiest way to make friends is to introduce yourself. And finally Draco leads with his family name because it shows his pure blood status and sets him above the rest; it is what makes him important and special, and his last name is the only thing that matters. Yet in the end war does not care what your name is, it hurts without discrimination, and that is what the second gifs display all to well.

@andymientus I fell down a whole flight of stairs onstage just now in #LesMizBway. Luckily bootlegging's illegal so I'm sure that moment's gone forever.

"… and to you, if you have stuck with Harry until the very end."

Here’s to book seven. Here’s to the years of anticipation before it and the years of discussion in its wake. Here’s to the boy who lived and how he changed everything.

And here’s to you, if you know that “the very end” isn’t happening anytime soon.

We are book eight.


Happy 7th birthday, Deathly Hallows!


I see all these posts about the proper way to treat servers, and that’s awesome and important and everything, but can we talk for a minute about not being a dick to hosts.

IF YOU ARE A BIG PARTY AND YOU COME IN ON OUR BUSIEST DAY OF THE WEEK AND THERE ARE THREE OTHER BIG PARTIES BEFORE YOU, THERE IS GOING TO BE A SIGNIFICANT WAIT. I CANNOT CONTROL THAT.

I ALSO CANNOT CONTROL WHEN PEOPLE LEAVE. IF WE NEED A TABLE TO LEAVE TO BE ABLE TO SEAT YOU, AND THAT TABLE IS JUST SITTING THERE CHATTING FOR A HALF HOUR, THERE IS NOTHING I CAN DO ABOUT THAT. I CAN’T MAKE SOMEONE LEAVE. I WOULD GET WRITTEN UP IF I DID THAT.

SO PLEASE DON’T YELL AT HOSTS BECAUSE I GUARANTEE YOU THEY ARE DOING THE BEST THAT THEY CAN.

NO ONE IS INTENTIONALLY TRYING TO KEEP YOU WAITING.

JESUS.

Other things people have yelled at me for:

  • I underestimated the amount of time they would have to wait
  • I overestimated the amount of time they would have to wait
  • They needed to wait thirty seconds for me to get more receipt paper
  • I opened a new roll of quarters too slowly
  • I “seemed annoyed” when one party tested out four different tables before finally settling on the one they liked best (seriously why am I here if you can just sit wherever the hell you want?)
  • I’m not smiley enough
  • An able-bodied person parked in a handicapped spot (which is awful, but wtf am I supposed to do about it? I’M JUST THE HOST)

PLEASE STOP BEING MEAN TO HOSTS

WE ARE DOING OUR BEST

"This boy will be famous, a legend. I wouldn’t be surprised if today was known as Harry Potter day in future. There will be books written about Harry, every child in our world will know his name."

How to react when a girl tells you she’s changed her mind - A guide by Scott Pilgrim

Am I the only one reading this more like “How to react when your partner is giving you signs that they aren’t fully consenting - A guide by Ramona”?

that’s a good point

Both are valid takes
