i struggle with anxiety, i'm rarely not polite, i like to look at things critically and listen to and consider people's thoughts on things, i'm tired of being poor, i'm a pretty laid back person other than having anxiety and am pretty accepting of people who come to me with sincerity, i have problems with avoidance and escapism, and i don't feel i will ever be truly happy in this world but i'm going to try my best anyways.
i updated my fic rec page (overhaul 7/2; added 3 fics 7/4), and my about page which now includes my tags page and a blogroll.
currently: procrastinating harry potter reread;
have a cool hp edit idea i'm also procrastinating getting done;
need to catch up on Free!, Teen Wolf



A handy guide I wrote and illustrated for writers doing fic set at Hogwarts who want to know where everything is in relation to everything else. Inspired by the sad dearth of decent official maps from JK, it’s a first-person walk-through of Hogwarts imagined as if I was a Prefect handing out pamphlets to all the poor ickle firsties. ^_^’

My folk dance group just came back from South-Africa (I sadly couldn’t go), and one of my mum’s old friends brought me back the South-African version of The Deathly Hallows as a surprise.

I am so happy with it :D

Or perhaps in Slytherin,

You’ll make your real friends,

Those cunning folk use any means,

To achieve their ends.”

Harry lost any sense of where they were: Streetlights above him, yells around him, he was clinging to the sidecar for dear life. Hedwig’s cage, the Firebolt, and his rucksack slipped from beneath his knees —
“No — HEDWIG!”
The broomstick spun to earth, but he just managed to seize the strap of his rucksack and the top of the cage as the motorbike swung the right way up again. A second’s relief, and then another burst of green light. The owl screeched and fell to the floor of the cage.
“No — NO!”
The motorbike zoomed forward; Harry glimpsed hooded Death Eaters scattering as Hagrid blasted through their circle.
“Hedwig — Hedwig —”
But the owl lay motionless and pathetic as a toy on the floor of her cage.
