“Allison has a mini-breakdown where she says, “I’m always terrified,” or something like that. (…) I remember that there was something going on in my personal life, at that moment, so it was nice to have that be my release. That might be too much information. It was cathartic. Acting is really therapeutic for me, personally. That’s something that I’ll always remember. I don’t know how it’s going to look, but I gave it my heart and soul.”
I’m not even a gamer but I would play this so hard.
and you would get sorted an junk and it would be great
Isn’t this secretly what we all wanted Pottermore to be?
Okay so my mind started rolling with this and omfg okay just hear me out
So like it starts of sort of like Sims and Skyrim, okay. You get your owl and you go do your shopping for stuff for Hogwarts, but you don’t get to see your character just yet. When you get to Hogwarts and your sorting ceremony, you get to customise how they look and what sort of traits they have. After you customise all that, you get sorted via a quiz (sort of like Pottermore) and it rolls with that and you get sorted.
Through the game, you get to study magic (obvious) and you have adventures and stuff where you have to make decisions. These decisions later decide what your Patronus and Animagus will be, as well as what your fear is for you Boggart (though this could also possibly be decided on when you’re making your character idk whatever).
So during the summer holidays, you have adventures in the Muggle world (depending on what your blood status is, which could be decided randomly) if you’re Muggle-born. If you’re Pure-Blooded, you have adventures in the wizarding world. If you’re Half-Blooded, you can do both. But here’s the thing, if you spend more time in the Muggle world, you get more information on going on’s in the Muggle world, and same goes for the Wizarding world if you spend more time in the Wizarding world. And after a period of time, like maybe in your fourth year?, you can get papers and news from whichever world you’re not in most often. And your knowledge of the events of the world, both Wizarding and Muggle alike, can factor into the gameplay somehow.
And then in your Fifth and Seventh years, you have your O.W.L.s and your N.E.W.T.s, and these factor into what career choices you’ll have later on as well. So like if you score high in Herbology and Potions, you’d have career options like Healer, Herbologist, and Potion Master.
AND THEN THE WORLD BECOMES YOURS. YOU CAN CONTINUE RELATIONSHIPS YOU HAD IN HOGWARTS AFTERWARDS, OR YOU CAN MEET NEW PEOPLE, OR WHATEVER. AND THEN IT JUST BECOMES THIS HUGE SANDBOX OF FUN AND WONDERMENT.
FUCKIN DO IT BETHESDA
and in the endless sky we are but one, we are alive
in my dreams
wolf and I
Happy Birthday, findingourplace!
“Yes, Erica, we’re up,” Stiles rolls his eyes as he’s trying to balance a pan in one hand, a spatula in the other and his phone between his shoulder and ear without dropping something and causing a minor pancake disaster in the kitchen.
“All of you?” Stiles can feel her squinting her eyes at him even through the phone.
“Two thirds of us.”
“Stiles, I swear to God if you’re late, you can be the one to deal with the tantrum Audrey will throw if her cake isn’t cut at exactly 1:33 p.m.”
“Can I just say again how adorable I find it that you always cut the cake at the exact time she was born? It’s super sweet.”
“Do not change the subject, Stilinski.”
“Look, he’ll be up in a few minutes, I didn’t want to wake him, his flight came in really late last night. Plus he just looked so peaceful, Erica. So dreamy.”
“Stop saying things like that about Derek, Boyd looks like he might throw up.”
“Please, like you guys never admired him while he was asleep. Like neither of you ever got distracted by looking at those long dark lashes casting shadows on his cheekbones, or the soft curve of his mouth, or-“
“Okay, that’s enough,” Stiles hears Boyd’s voice close to the receiver, then there’s the sound of Erica cussing and what seems to be both of them fighting over the phone before the call cuts off. Stiles smiles to himself victoriously and then quickly shoots Erica a text saying that they will most definitely get to her and Boyd’s beach house on time.
“Daddy, I’m hungry,” Julie drops her pencil on the colouring book she’s been occupied with at the table.
“Hi, hungry, I’m daddy,” Stiles snorts and flips the pancake in the pan, wiggles his eyebrows at Julie and grins.
Julie rolls her eyes at him so hard her entire head gets involved in the movement, and Stiles can swear she looks like the spitting image of Derek while doing it.
“I miss the days when you were little and used to be impressed by me.” He sniffles and clutches at his chest dramatically.
“Daddy, I’m six.”
“And yet, so unimpressed by your father already.”

So this little cigarette right here has sparked a whole new brand of TFiOS hate, much of which is coming from people who claimed to love the book.
Many people are now pointing out how “pretentious” Augustus is, and I can’t help but think, You’re only just now realizing this. He was written to be a seemingly pretentious and arrogant person. The acknowledgement of this is actually highly important because, without it, the book loses the message that a hero’s journey is that of strength to weakness.
Augustus Waters has big dreams for himself. He wants to be known and remembered; he wants to be a hero; he wants to be seen as perfect. But there’s already something standing in his way… He has a disability, and society tells him that a person cannot be both perfect and disabled. So what does he do? He creates a persona for himself. He tries to appear older and wiser than he is. But the pretentious side of him is NOT who he truly is. It’s all an act. (This is evident in the fact that he often uses words in the wrong context.)
And when his cancer returns, we begin to see his mask cracking. The true Augustus begins to bleed through… Hazel even takes notice of this from time to time. And by the time we get to the gas station scene, Augustus is no longer the picture of perfection he was when we met him. The play has been canceled. The actor must reveal himself. And he’s revealed to be a weak, defenseless boy, succumbing to the cancer that is made of him.
THE PRETENTIOUSNESS IS INTENTIONAL. It stands to show Augustus’s journey from flawless to flawed, from strong to weak. It’s the key to understanding that Augustus was the hero he always wanted to be, even if he didn’t realized it.
What are you so afraid of!?
I’m REALLY sorry but it looks like they’re about to rap battle
