Do not pity me… I was born for this.
Just finishing up an awesome journey with someone!! I had been playing in glitches and not planning to finish so i didn’t take care of my scarf but they still put up with me haha~ (I’m bad at flying anyway but give me a short scarf and it’s even worse lmao;; )
They showed me a little nook behind the tower walls i didn’t k ow about and flew around with me a lot. We then drew hearts (and a star! Really cute~) at the end of the game. Gonna get their gamer tag and message them when the credits finish.
Speaking of glitching tho, i managed to finally do the underground one and… Messed up the war machines? They’d activate and auto lock on to me no matter how much i hugged the wall (once i was back in-bounds), hence my short scarf haha.
anon asked about fem!free! and ye, felt inspired
I meant to send this to group chat but whatever

daily reminder that minerva mcgonagall is metal as fuck
reminder she took 3 stunning spells directly to the chest and after being taken to st mungos brushed it off like nothing
I’m as enamored with Minerva McGonagall as anyone, but I think it’s important to take a view of these passages that I’m afraid is often brushed to the side.
Minerva McGonagall is a good ally.
She’s an old, established, respected, tenured professor, who has gained incredible benefits from “the system” over the course of her life, and now because of her position at Hogwarts has incredible influence over perpetuating that same system through explicit and implicit lessons to the students she teaches.
However, in the face of an institutional force—even a superior with direct influence over her—that is threatening, harrassing, and trying to break the spirit of one of her students, she uses the prestige of her position and her reputation within the wizarding world and at the school to dismiss and deflect abuse from it’s intended target and, quite frankly, to reflect it as ridicule back in the face of the abuser.
Lessons we should try to learn from Minerva McGonagall about how to be a good ally:
- The powers-that-be are trying to weaken the oppressed by constantly distracting and interrupting. Intervene to maintain focus.
- The powers-that-be will try to devalue the oppressed by manipulating standards of judgement. Expose their false standards.
- The powers-that-be will try to intimidate, cow, and break the spirits of the oppressed to maintain control over them. Reaffirm the humanity, fundamental rights, and human agency of those you are allying with, even in the face of terror tactics and intimidation.
- The powers-that-be will try to demean the oppressed by insinuating false accusations (“…whether he has quite the temperment for an Auror.” “He was no angel.”).
Ignore themFlat out dismiss them.
- Call out “justice” when it clearly is not just.
I don’t know if Rowling intended for Minerva McGonagall to be an ally activist, but she provided some really solid examples of how to use your privilege and position to aid the oppressed rather than perpetuate the status quo.
ASSUMING DIRECT CONTROL OF THIS
HOLIDAY HARBINGER welcomes you to Mass Effect Holiday Cheer’s 2014 Holiday Gift Exchange.
Yes, we’re starting early. Holiday Harbinger is aware that November is a busy month, made busier by the release of some kind of video game this year? Obviously, it cares nothing for such things, but understands this Inquisition may affect the time available to organics for gift-making.
Until November 1st, 2013, Holiday Harbinger will be accepting surveys. After that, it will make matches, and you’ll be assigned a giftee. You’ll have until Christmas to prepare something—fic, art, media, crafts, cookies, whatever your heart desires—as a gift for some other lucky tumblr
This year will be a little different. We are using Google Forms. You must be willing to provide a reliable email address to Holiday Harbinger. There will be a pair of check-ins to (hopefully) avoid last-minute defaults (and gifts missing until March). All gifts must be submitted through email or submit page by December 25th, and Holiday Harbinger will be responsible for posting them.
- Read the rules (there have been some changes this year).
- Fill out the Google Forms Survey.
- Spread the news! The more the merrier!
Otherwise Holiday Harbinger will never collect enough organic paste to make a Tumblr Reaper.
- Join in the fun, before the harvest takes you all.
HOLIDAY CHEER CANNOT BE STOPPED
