I think it’s funny that tumblr has widespread contempt for the friendzone and misogynists who think they deserve women’s love and sex but they all love Severus Snape.

Just saying. 

I don’t think it’s funny at all that people would rather write Severus Snape off as a “friendzoned misogynist” because it’s the cool thing to do on tumblr nowadays instead of acknowledging that he was a complex character with some serious issues. None of them involved feeling entitled to Lily’s love or her body. He cares more about Lily than he does himself or James or Harry. 

Unhealthy? Yes. Kind of pathetic? Yes. Entitled? No. 

Nowhere is it said that he loved her romantically either. All we know is that she was his only friend as a child. His Patronus is a doe because how much you wanna bet she was the only good memory he has?

 And you know what? If the Lily storyline never existed this wouldn’t even be an issue. If Snape’s childhood best friend had been a man whose child fit the prophecy people would think Snape’s dedication to avenging his dead friend would be noble. 

You wanna talk about misogyny? Let’s talk about that. 

I know people wouldn’t be calling Snape a homophobe if Lily was a man.

Actually, more people would be questioning the fuck out of how Snape was treated by the marauders. 

I mean, how many times do you hear homophobes strip down gay men for the fun of it? And they use the excuse ‘because he exist’ a lot to justify their actions. How about the fact the same group of homophobes decides to trick said gay man into a situation where he isn going to be effected by socially crippling  disease?  A disease that relates specifically to that man’s demographic? And years later, one of the homophobes decides to tell a young boy to think about said gay man in drag…And then after that you hear multiple comments about the man being a lap dog.

But we can’t talk about those actual implications. We need to make up bullshit that never happen to hate a character.

This is getting better and better…

Did you miss me? After a long hiatus (full-time work has its downsides, it appears), I am back with a new knitlock giveaway. 
Recently I noticed that I seem to have developed a bit of a knitlock problem, having designed and knitted no less than 5 jumpers (and a cardi) in the last two years or so. Endless hiatus + profound fixation on the 221B wallpaper = knitlock madness. So I decided to give one away!
The winner of this giveaway will receive 221 B Skulls (click x), the jumper I designed and knitted in the first year of my knitlock addiction. Hand-knitted in luxurious Merino/Silk mix. Size Women’s M (around UK 12) - check my ravelry page for more detailed description (click x)
The second winner will receive Deduction Game Chullo ( click x) - based on the unforgettable specimen from The Empty Hearse. Hand-knitted in 100% NZ wool.
You don’t have to be following me to enter. But it would be nice if you did. In fact, let me give you an extra incentive. If you follow me and win, I’ll throw in a Sherlockian Phone Cosy (click x) to complete your prize.

I FELT SO SORRY FOR HER IN THIS MOMENT.

like ok from the day she got on the hogwarts express, people were making fun of her and she’s never viewed as pretty or attractive until the moment in the first gif.

and because ron is fuckin jealous, he makes her feel like shit and ugh it’s like her one night of being someone else is just shattered and and and

WHY DID YOU D O THAT

I get really annoyed with people who are like “well she could have asked ron first instead of screaming at him to not use her as a last resort.”

well… no. She was asked by krum right away. She wanted to go with him. She wasn’t going alone and moaning that Ron hadn’t asked her. Her objection was to being treated like she should have been available to him, and being treated like she was lying about having a date. And who the fuck wouldn’t be offended by somebody thinking that they’re so undesirable that they made up a date?

this post actually made me almost cry no joke

To people saying I can't love Draco if I hate Snape

the-great-snape-debate:

humble-hufflepuff:

•Draco is a BOY abused by his father and in a very toxic environment. Now While that doesn’t make his actions ok in the end he realized what he was doing was wrong and tried to get out of his situation. He wanted to leave the Death Eaters and leave all of his bad choices…

Hmmm lets rewrite one of these arguments - I’ll bold the sections I change shall we, just a few minor edits

Snape is was BOY abused by his father and in a very toxic environment. Now While that doesn’t make his actions ok in the end he realized what he was doing was wrong and tried to get out of his situation. He wanted to leave the Death Eaters and leave all of his bad choices behind and he did, he became a spy to save hundreds of lives, and defeat Voldemort. Think about having to live his life when you were 15. He was confused and brainwashed by his peers.”
