*whispers* Mulan, Merida, and Rapunzel didn’t have men saving them
*regular voice* Lilo and Nani’s sisterly love for each other was a big point in their movie
*slightly aggravated voice* Enchanted questioned marrying a man you hardly know
*shouting* FROZEN ISN’T THE FIRST MOVIE TO HAVE THESE POINTS
I wanted to see how many if us there are- not just ‘true fans’ but people who like all parts of the saga
"Oh, [Lily] got a letter just like that and disappeared off to that—that school—and came home every holiday with her pockets full of frog-spawn, turning teacups into rats.” (PS, chapter 4)
"[Petunia] loved their neat square house at number four, Privet Drive. She was secure, now, from objects that behaved strangely, from teapots that suddenly piped tunes as she passed …” (Pottermore)"Just like her son, Lily was not averse to testing the limits of the Statute of Secrecy, so you can safely assume she will have had a few warning letters – nothing too serious, though." (J.K. Rowling)
this is all entirely compliant with the picture of Lily we’re given - vivacious, cheeky, funny and brave, winding her sister up no end by enchanting household objects …and yet the poor girl continues to be characterised as a rule-abiding stickler. Why. WHY.
i think it’s because the fandom likes to exaggerate the rule-abiding stickler part to play a more contrasting opposite to the james “i-break-every-rule-in-the-book” potter that the fandom has created as well.
idk, that’s what you get from half a chapter about james and lily. =.=
can we start a club for teenagers who were constantly complimented on their intelligence when they were younger and are now having trouble coping with the realization that they’re actually of average intellect at best
can this club have a support person that helps us to study because we didn’t need to before so we don’t know how to now
This is so my life that’s hurt
