I can’t stress enough how important it is that you surround yourself with supportive people who make you feel important and special, and who enhance your life with their presence. If their presence is making you feel worse instead of better, re-evaluate why you’re letting them stay.
Slytherins like to hide out when they’ve been particularly stressed. They’ll find a cool corner to curl up in, with plush pillows and a duvet. Be patient, their rest (in their towering upstairs bedroom, or the basement den couch) could very well last anywhere from 12-72 hours. Don’t even try to take a Slytherin’s spot once it’s staked out for hibernation.
When I used to think about Voldemort’s horcruxes I imagined a soul divided in equal portions residing in the different horcruxes and Voldemort himself. I realised that this can’t be true in The Half-Blood Prince Slughorn describes making a horcrux as splitting ones soul in two. This means that when Riddle made his Diary into a horcrux he split his soul in half and physically removed one half from his body and placed it in the diary. This means that he only had half of his soul left when he made his next horcrux, Marvolo’s ring. This half would have been split in half leaving only a quarter in Voldemort’s body. This goes on and on the amount of soul remaining in Voldemort halving each time he makes a horcrux until he had only 1/128 or 0.78125% left in his body. As shown in the graph above. So next time you wonder why Voldemort could have done some of things he did, remember how little human he had left in him. I don’t know about you but I think that this is crazy.
Come on guys, I didn’t do maths for 14 notes
So are you telling me that Harry had more Voldemort than Voldemort had Voldemort?
i look down at the dull blade, take a deep breath, wince, and think, “it would never work… this steak knife could never trim my bangs like that sword cut Mulan’s hair…”
Hey!! I've been in a bit of a positivity slump for the past few months and it's been getting me down so much that a lot of problems I experienced in the past have come but. BUT watching your video has really given me the push I needed to start being more positive and kinder to myself and others and I appreciate you and Amanda taking the time out of your days to encourage people to be more positive. Thank you guys so much! I hope you continue to have great days/weeks/months. Much love to you!!
Oh my gosh! This makes me want to cry! Thank you so much for letting us know that we were able to help you out. That is honestly all I could have hoped for.
That video you posted about positivity was exactly what I needed to start my week. I used to be a very angry and negative person. Over the last year and a half, I've turned my life around though and watching that video just made me happy that I've continued to stick on this positive track that I've been on. Thanks for making it/posting it!
I am so stoked about this! Mission accomplished!!!
Amanda Waters and I collabed on my latest video on our methods for staying positive, and why it’s so important to us! If you’re feeling down, or even just curious on our thoughts on the matter, feel free to watch this one, and pass it along if you know someone who might need to hear this.
Friendly reminder that Amanda and I did a collab vid we’re pretty frickin proud of! We both deal with a lot of depression, and have been (and continue to be) bullied quite a lot. There’s always room to be angry, and sad, and to react in genuine ways, because that’s what being alive is all about. But if you’re trying (or want to try) to be happier, and make progress in your own life physically, mentally, in your career, love life, etc. starting with a little bit of positive affirmation, and optimistic thinking can work wonders. It’s silly to think that there are people who are not for trying to encourage positivity. It doesn’t victimize anyone else or their feelings, because everyone’s feelings are valid, it encourages others to see light, and find happiness within themselves when they are ready to try to make a conscious choice.
ahh the painting that you added the shadow figure to is the coolest! i want one! also the positivity video you did with amanda is awesome xx
Oh my gosh! Thank you so much!
New art edit I painted in this afternoon! I love it!
This is terrifying and really great and Lucy should definitely make more of these
My parents had this picture in their bedroom and I was genuinely terrified of it growing up for some reason, and thus your edit is actually perfect thank you.
That’s nuts! What?!
Don’t tell me that Gender Fluid is a lie.
Don’t tell me that Gender Fluid is just a phase.
Don’t tell me that Gender Fluid is childish.
I live and breath my gender fluidity. I proudly stand within the Gender Queers in support of a new, gender variant society.
Gender is the seed that has sprouted into the discriminatory, bigoted & bland society we live in. When you dig down deep into the issues surrounding the world right now it all comes back to one tiny little fuck up. The idea that biological sex somehow determines the gender roll of individuals is a lie. In fact, gender rolls is a lie. Just because I identify as gender fluid does not mean that I must uphold any societal expectation, associated with gender fluidity.
Plain and simple, I plan on having two children.
I will not teach my little boy to “be a man.”
I will not teach my little girl what it means to “be a woman.”
Instead, i’ll teach my children to just simply be good people.
Because a society full of good people makes for a better life than a society full of classified, judgmental, opinionated and shallow people.

I wanna be able to pull stuff like that off… damn.
- Marina: Writes songs about over-sexualisation of women in the media
- Marina: Writes songs about personal struggles with obsessive compulsive behaviour
- Marina: Writes songs materialism
- Marina: Writes songs about how fear of failure, and how that fear can destroy you
- Marina: Writes songs about the pressure of fame and the media, and the toll that can take on a person
- Marina: Writes songs about adolescent struggles, and, unlike some, doesn't dismiss the feelings of teenagers to be less valid
- Marina: Writes songs about the corruption of Hollywood
- Marina: Writes songs about the negative side of love
- Marina: Writes one song about being a primadonna, which is based on a fictional character that is a complete antithesis to everything she believes in.
- Marina: Writes one song about being a heartbreaker, which again, was based on the same fictional character. This song was accompanied by a video which completely reversed traditional 'gender roles' in the majority of music videos today, which also, whether incidentally or not, highlighted how furious people will become over the sexualisation of men, while turning a complete blind eye to the sexualisation of women.
- People: Marina's songs are so shallow! All she sings about is being a primadonna and a heartbreaker and ugh she has no lyrical depth why do people even like her
