Here’s my theory. The Harry Potter trio are actually representations of the other houses. Hermione is Ravenclaw. Ron is Hufflepuff. Harry is Slytheryn. They’re all in Gryffindor because they asked. In fact, everyone in that house could have been in another house if they hadn’t asked to be in Gryffindor. You have be ask to be in Gryffindor because their most defining feature is bravery and anyone can choose to be brave.
I fuck with your theory, marry me.
friends turned lovers is literally my favorite trope - like, all other tropes can go home.

im so confused what is
WTF!?!?!?!?!?! Someone get the fucking salt!
Oh my god
Alright gonna try this
In 1942, only months after the United States entry into WWII, a secret military program was launched to recruit women to the war effort. But unlike recruiting Rosie to the factory, this search targeted female mathematicians who would become human ‘computers’ for the US Army. These women worked round-the-clock shifts creating ballistics tables that proved crucial to Allied victory. Rosie made the weapons but the female computers made them accurate. When the first electronic computer (ENIAC) was invented to aid ballistic calculation efforts, six of these women were tapped to become its first programmers.
In 2010 Top Secret Rosies: The Female Computers of WWII, an HD documentary project shared this story of the women and technology that helped win a war and usher in the modern computer age. Since its public debut in September 2010, Top Secret Rosies has had an enormous national and international impact, with over 50,000 viewings on Netflix, broadcasts on public TV, purchase by over 500 libraries around the world and educational distribution through PBS. A national tour of the film is now in its third year. But the one educational audience the film was unable to reach is that crucial 4-6th grade age group.
The Computer wore Heels will be an interactive iBookApp, based on the Top Secret Rosies story that will target elementary aged students. Combining classic text-based storytelling with video, audio and photographic materials, this interactive iBookApp will share the story of three teenage girls who used their brainpower to help the US win WWII. The iBookApp will be appropriate for late elementary and middle school teachers in the area of math, science, computers and history.
Please visit the Indiegogo page for more information, including how to make a contribution to this project.

discovering a NOTP is weird. Like you don’t realize it’s a notp until you see a post and just go
fuck this shit
it is entirely inconsistent with elizabeth’s character for her to drop everything (PIRATE KING thank you very much) to raise a child as a landlubber
give me elizabeth, eight months pregnant, still running the show from shipwreck cove
give me elizabeth and her six-year-old
soncabin boy kicking ass and taking names as they outrun the royal navy
give me elizabeth, instead of waiting for will, sailing out to meet him
give me elizabeth dying at sea four years and one week later and signing aboard the flying dutchman to the shock of its captain
give me elizabeth and will co-captaining the dutchman and sailing the seas beyond the edge of the world for eternity together
give me young billy (i’m forced to assume they, as pirates, are unimaginative when it comes to names) telling the story of william turner, who gave up everything for the woman he loved, and elizabeth swann, who took it back with sword and pistol
something always bothered me about that ending and now I know what it was god bless
so i cleared my throat today and
and then someone poked me in the side so I laughed
and THEN I FUCKING SNEEZED
and that’s what it’s like being on the second day of your period
i hope this has been educational

I have never seen something so accurate before
The male side of tumblr must be so traumatized right now
