More an Antique Roman than a Dane

1020. Muggleborns starting an improv club at Hogwarts and playing regular muggle games at first, but then someone realizes that they could probably use charms and transfiguration in them too, and thus emerges wizarding improv.

"

Herr God, Herr Lucifer
Beware
Beware.


Out of the ash
I rise with my red hair
And I eat men like air.

"
— Sylvia Plath, excerpt of “Lady Lazarus”  (via georginakincaid)

"You have witchcraft in your lips."
— William Shakespeare, Henry V (via nudelip)


"1:all fungi are edible.
2: some fungi are only edible once"
— Terry Pratchett (via bableman)


"Above anything else, stay true to yourself. Whether that means for you that you like to have blue hair, or you don’t like to drink, or you are attracted to the same sex, or you want to remove yourself from Facebook, or you’ve got 3 different kids from 3 different dads but you know you’re a really good mom, or you cry for a week because your turtle died. Whatever your truth is, stay true to yourself. But be a good person while you’re at it."
— Gillian Anderson’s advice for young feminists. (via foxsmulders)

Aisha Zeijpveld

Amsterdam-based photographer Aisha Zeijpveld creates surreal portraits featuring soft coloured backdrops with interrupted and edited subjects. The artist’s use of watercolour-like layers, crumpled canvas textures, tilted mirrors, unusual props and materials suggest a multiple printing and shooting process to shift the reality.

Aisha does all her editing by hand. No photoshop, no easy tricks, just scissors and whatever material she needs to create the surreal effect she wants. She sketches onto the photographs, outlining the figure in an unusual way, whilst modifying shapes into something slightly different.


"O stand, stand at the window
As the tears scald and start;
You shall love your crooked neighbor
with all your crooked heart."
— W.H. Auden (via observando)

Pitiful little band

homophobia is not an opinion. transphobia is not an opinion. ableism is not an opinion. racism is not an opinion. these things just make you a bad person and you can’t defend them at all. i don’t want to talk to you if you think these things are okay, and i don’t care about your feelings if you’re upset that i’m mad at you for these things, because you obviously don’t care about the feelings of the people effected by it.
