OMFG you guys I was so excited to get to Six.
So here’s Six as a lady of the Solomon Islands!  Everything about the outfit is the same, except I exchanged the cat pin with a pin featuring a bird of the Islands. UuU

I love that I work at a place where one of my coworkers will say, “So, going to any more cons this year?” and I can be like, “Nah, not unless someone gets Katy Manning, she’s my current unicorn,” and they’ll be like, “I know exactly what you mean.”

okay, most of what i do re: harry potter is criticism, and hp is flawed in such a number of ways, but sometimes i just sit here and

i mean, you all have a comprehension of just how drastically harry potter changed literature, yeah? like. it revitalized it. it blew the literary scene apart. the new york times had to create a separate bestseller’s list for children’s lit just because harry potter existed. harry potter changed reading.

so many people on tumblr were born in the ’90s. when the first book came out, most of us couldn’t read. but we grew up in a world where everyone, everyone, everyone was reading harry potter, no matter how old they were; we grew up in a world where the most popular story in the entire world was a fantasy children’s book.

it’s sort of difficult to grasp, sometimes, the extent to which harry potter is not just a book. the extent to which what is basically a series of fun, interesting, and fairly good novels is such an enormous, enormous part of our lives, a cultural touchstone, a truly universal reference point, something so many people have shaped their lives around, a foundation for all of the stories we would read and watch for the rest of our lives— for so many of us, the first books we ever loved

the extent to which so many of us can’t call ourselves “fans” of harry potter, because it would like being a “fan” of, like, having lungs.

it’s not even about liking it or disliking it. it’s just a part of us.

Just imagine all the normal people working or living on ds9 when main plot shit happens. They are just enjoying an evening at Quark’s when THE DOMINION IS TAKING OVER THE STATION, EVERYONE EVACUATE or reading a book when THE WHOLE STATION IS LITERALLY FALLING APART or sipping on raktajino when INTERSTELLAR WAR how do you even deal with that

"For fucks sake, I came to this promenade to sell jumja sticks when you federation pricks decide to become possessed by pah’wraith and destroy the place fighting over good and evil!"

"Go to space station, they said. Lots of opportunities for work, they said. OH SHIT OH SHIT DON’T IMAGINE ANYTHING TOO HARD OR IT WILL BECOME REAL, NOBODY EVER SAID.”

Can we get a signal boost for trans Latina Arianna Lint’s gender-affirming surgery? Her gofundme page has had 57 shares on facebook but not even half that many dollars in the month that she’s had her page.

Imagine your icon owning cows, but the cows escape. There are now cows everywhere. Your icon breaks down in tears.

"I don’t think any of these cows know anything about the time scanner.”

Imagine your OTP taking a shower or bath together, but instead of getting frisky they innocently goof around in the water and wash each other’s hair and relax in each other’s arms.
