What if Peter Pan was just an asshole, and had kids jump out of windows, making Neverland a coma dream?

Peter Pan originally was an angel of death that held kid’s hands when on their way to heaven (Neverland). That’s why they never grew up. All those kids were dead.

this week on tumblr: everyone realizes how much of a badass neville was all along 

and maybe finally realizing that Snape was a complete asshole not a misunderstood man

Neville Longbottom: He woulda done it in 4 books

Also pointing out: Snape was an asshole to Neville because of his obsession with Lilly. He was pissed off Voldemort chose Harry rather than Neville.
Snape tortured two young boys because of an obsession with a dead, married woman.

Also: a dead married woman who turned him down when she was alive

“What’s interesting about the wizarding world is when you take physical strength out of the equation, a woman can do magic just as powerfully as a man can do magic. A woman can fight just the same as a man.”

That was super nice of them.
And now I’m mad that nobody told us we were given cows. Cause that’s really f*cking nice and nobody mentioned it at all.

American media tends to disregard that anyone donates to the US. And then Amurricans complain about money going abroad because “nobody helped the US in our disasters.”

Also, do you know how much a cow costs? O.O

It isn’t just a matter of how much a cow costs, its a matter of considering that Masai life is based around their cattle. Its their wealth, their food, and a significant part of their religion. Here’s a quote from Wikipedia:
“Traditional Maasai lifestyle centres around their cattle which constitute their primary source of food. The measure of a man’s wealth is in terms of cattle and children. A herd of 50 cattle is respectable, and the more children the better. A man who has plenty of one but not the other is considered to be poor.[37] A Maasai religious belief relates that God gave them all the cattle on earth, leading to the belief that rustling cattle from other tribes is a matter of taking back what is rightfully theirs, a practice that has become much less common.[38]”
So its not just “they gave us 14 cows”, its that they gave us something that is very important and significant to them, it is more than just a kind gesture that definitely deserves to be known and its a genuine shame that more people don’t know about it.

my brain: wait

me: what

my brain: what if mad eye moody survived and got to be like this awkward cranky old grandpapa for teddy lupin

me: oh no

my brain: because tonks would ask him

me: nooOO

my brain: and just imagine alastor moody giving a crying infant child rambling lectures on the defensive merits of a tactical silence

me: noooO oOOOO oo

my brain: and using his magical eye to check under the bed for monsters because teddy asked him to

me: NO o O NNoooOOo

my brain: and being a complete grump and refusing to have a cup of tea from lupin or tonks but when teddy offers him anything he always takes it and gives everyone a look just daring them to say something about it

me: oh gOD NO

my brain: and saying inappropriately scary things to teddy that make tonks shake her head and moody just looks at teddy and winks with his good eye and the boy giggles and changes his hair to match moody's and tries to wink back and

me: WHO TOLD YOU THIS WAS OKAY THIS IS NOT OKAY

Three years today since my dad died. Shame he never knew me as an adult (I was 19) because I’m a bloody great one. He died of a sudden, out-of-nowhere stroke while I was at VidCon and he was at home in London. He was out of it straight after but still kind of there and then he died a couple of days later. 1 in 5 strokes are fatal & annually, worldwide, approx 15 million people have a stroke. To help work towards making these statistics less depressing, read up on The Stroke Association here: http://www.stroke.org.uk

Rosianna is a bloody good adult.
Rosianna was one of the first readers of Looking for Alaska, has been a nerdfighter since the very first vlogbrothers video was uploaded, and now works as my assistant (although that job title rather underplays her importance to me and to the nerdfighter community).
Three years ago today, she became the first teenager ever to read The Fault in Our Stars. Her dad had just died, and she was stuck at Vidcon. I never imagined then that she would become such a bloody good adult, or that she’d become such a close friend and collaborator.
But I have always known Rosianna to be a person of excellent judgement, blistering intelligence, and great competence. And while I know that her dad would have so much to be proud of today, he had much to be proud of then as well.
