Sad picture, but not sad post. My friend from uni posted a link on Facebook: If Hermione Granger Were the Main Character in "Harry Potter".

Very compelling read (with images) in which Hermione takes No Shit, gives Zero Fucks, and tackles The Patriarchy (really truly), with tips of the hat to 'boss witch' Professor McGonagall (of course) and Ginny Weasley. (Molly too but I ignored that part because if a trope calls out a trope it's a double-negative and means the opposite, and the opposite of 'there' is 'not there', so there it's not.)

No really though it's hilarious. References to hashtag activism, some of the current goings-on in online feminist culture, calls out Dumblebore and Weasles and The Boy Who Lived But Died But Lived Again on some bullshittery and privilege...

It made me laugh. See what you think.

(This may be a posty day from me; I want to get up my resolutions and things. We'll see what happens after I manage to run some errands out in the cold: 22ºF/-5.6ºC yaaay... At least it's in the 20s? Serious scarf weather. Perhaps I should wear my Hufflrpuff scarf--and no that's not a typo, I have a cheap 'house scarf' that says Hufflrpuff, clearly not made by a Ravenclaw.)

*Has apparently been distracted by the icon for three weeks.*

*Yeah, that's the excuse.*

Good to see you around, however belated I am to acknowledge it! And I want to read this AU so badly.

It is one of my better icons. Lol

I'm lurking around, attacking randomly. Luckily I just attack in hugs and conversation. Lol And I take requests! XD

'tis indeed a good icon.

And that's the best way to randomly attack people! :D

Best. Thing. Ever!
Harry is all like," let's go do this without thinking it through."
Hermione is like, "STFU and let's think this through and make a logical plan of attack."
Ron is like, "Whut?"
Ginny is like, "Fuck this. Let's blow some shit up!"

I would pay money to see this.

Ginny is like, "Fuck this. Let's blow some shit up!"
I would say that sums things up perfectly and points to part of the reason I like her character. :P

I would absolutely pay money to see this too!

*Late comment is late.*

Let's set this bitch on fire.

I like fire...


Wasn't really funny though. Bit too true.
