This blog was created to keep the magic alive, long after the movies and books are over. I try to post things that show Harry Potter being applied to real life with lessons and jokes and stories. Enjoy!

You know, when I was a kid, I remember being really stirred by the fact that Hermione Granger did actually end up having a date to the Yule Ball and that it was Viktor Krum.  There was something really powerful about a hyperlogical, bookish girl, who was believed to be incapable of getting a date on her own, landing a famous guy who respects and cherishes her just by being herself.

Please pay attention to what is happening in Ferguson right now.

The people of Ferguson are staging a peaceful protest regarding the unlawful, tragic murder of Mike Brown, and the police are responding with rubber bullets (one man has been injured so far) and tear gas, calling the protesters “fucking animals.”

The police are wearing full military gear. They are responding with absolute violence.

The police are trying to cover up their vicious, unconstitutional actions, telling the news crews/journalists to leave the scene of the protests so they can “clean up.” They’ve completely sealed off Ferguson. THEY’VE TRAPPED THE PROTESTERS (and regular people who would like to go home) INSIDE AND ARE TRYING TO FORCE THE MEDIA OUT. They are harming and threatening to arrest journalists who do not comply.

The Ferguson PD have created an illegal police state. This is, by all means, unconstitutional. BUT IT IS NOT A NEW OCCURRENCE. If you are shocked by this display of police brutality, then you must have missed the last 50 years of anti-black history. And the saddest part? This is not the worst case of it by any means. I beg you, please, pay attention to what is happening and commit it to memory.

Here is a petition to change the current laws and stop the police from abusing their power. I urge you to sign it. And I urge to you share your outrage over what is happening. Tell your legislators, your communities, your social media cohorts. SHARE IT BEFORE THE POLICE AND MEDIA COVER IT UP.

The officer who murdered Mike Brown, the disgusting pig who shot this boy 9 times, is on PAID LEAVE right now. THAT SHOULDN’T EVEN BE AN OPTION. 

The peaceful protesters of Ferguson are being gassed and shot at for seeking justice. PLEASE DON’T IGNORE THEIR STRUGGLE. 

PAY ATTENTION.

Here’s a link to an LA Times article, summarizing the events of the evening protest.

The scar had not pained Harry for nineteen years. All was well.

Happy birthday, Harry Potter!

To celebrate Harry’s birthday (and my undying love for the series), I made my own covers! I created patterns (Thanks for the inspiration Scandinavia!) using a significant object from each book. I used those in the movies as reference and digitally painted them. You can view the whole project here! :)

(It’s already July 31 here in the Philippines. Haha.)

Fawkes is a phoenix, Harry. They burst into flame when it is time for them to die, and then they are reborn from the ashes.

i find it amusing how people think harry and ginny would have had a completely settled, quiet life after the war like these two idiots are literally the biggest daredevils on the planet?? do you honestly think they even know how to have a quiet existence?? they probably came shuffling in to mrs. weasley every week all scraped and bruised with a black eye and matching stupid grins because they fought off a bear that was trying to steal their picnic or some shit
