“I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says "Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.”

This light switch cover was in an upstairs bedroom at my grandparents house. After years of playing a variety of games with my cousins in my grandparents house and the amount of time I spent there when they babysat me, I don’t even know how many times I’ve looked at it. As far back into my childhood I can remember, I admired it. When I think of my grandparents or look back all nostalgically at family parties and gathering, this is one of the things I always remember. When my grandparents both were finally gone, we all went through the house and took the things we wanted. I got all the old lighters in the house (I’m the only one, on both sides of my family, who smokes in front of everyone), the fiestaware, the silverware, a very large landscape painting with an extremely gaudy gold frame, and this light switch cover.

My grandparents were already pretty old when I was born. She was married before my grandfather and it was a rather big scandal in their small Missouri town when she married my grandfather. My grandparents had three sons, my dad and my uncles. My grandma had two daughters with her first husband. My grandmother and her daughters would get so tan that they used to get turned away from where he was station in Panama. They thought they were locals. My grandmother’s first husband killed himself. I don’t know why. I don’t think anyone in my family knows why or really any details other then he shot himself. Apparently, my great grandmother would tell haters that she couldn’t think of a better woman to marry her son.

I love my grandmother. My dad doesn’t speak of her too oftem, but she seemed like a BAMF. She was tough, she didn’t take shut from anyone, and she hand quilted. If you don’t know how hard hand quilting is, grab a sock, a sowing needle and some thread and hand stich the opening close. Now, multiply that by a billion and include decorative stitches and embroidering.

I remember her cookies. Homemade chocolate chip, the absolute best. I remember eating fat, blue grapes off their grapevines and splitting open pea pods for a snack in my grandma’s garden. I remember sitting in their living room, watching my grandma quilt while my grandpa watched wrestling. I remember they always had Archway frosted oatmeal cookies on the counter and fudgecicles in the freezer.

My grandmother passed away after a long battle with Alzhiemers l, when I was in the 5th grade. I don’t remember much of her downward spiral with alzhiemers. I think my parents tried to shelter me from it as much as possible so I wouldn’t have to see her like that. I do remember that she would walk over to our house every once and a while because she recognized it. It was something that even being lost and confused in a world that happened a very long time ago she recognized.

My mother told me after she died, that most of the time she complained about the man living in her house. See, when my grandma got really bad, she didn’t know who my grandpa was. In her mind, she was still married to her first husband. She would say terrible things to my grandfather. ‘Who are you? You aren’t my husband! I want my husband! This isn’t my house, I want to go home!’ I know she was sick, I don’t hold it against her at all. It just kind feels like someone punched my heart when I think of what that was like for my grandpa. She also told one of my aunts that she used to have two little girls and she wondered what ever happened to them. My aunt told her they probably grew up and had little girls of their own. That seemed to make my grandma feel better and she agreed.

The night she was rushed to the hospital, I know I would never see her again. I layed down in my bed and cried myself to sleep because I knew. I took her death hard. I was so young and I didn’t get enough time with her. I wish I had her in my early 20’s. I would have appreciated her more. Truth is, I didn’t even know her. We never had conversations, that I can remember, other then small talk.

Alzhiemers took what little time I had with her away. I knew half the time I saw her she didn’t know who I was. She liked me, even though she didn’t know me. Looking back, it’s probably because I look like her. I didn’t realize how much, until I came across a photo of her and her first husband. While our hair and eye color and skin tone are dramatically different, from the shape of her eyes down I am my grandma.

For Sylvia

Pronounced like Sylvie. She hated her name.

When you message me, include your tumblr name so I have an idea of who you are.

I have a headset, but I don’t feel like looking for it, but I have my controller keyboard sitting next to me, so replies won’t take an hour…unless I found another quest to do. I think all I really have left is trying to find every location.

Was she going to slap you because you never in any way made him gay in the actual books, taking zero risks/doing absolutely nothing for gay characters in literature, and only announcing your “authorial intent” afterwards for a cheap shot at looking like an ~ally~

^^^

Gay people are just normal people. We are not told about any of the Hogwarts professors love lives, other than Snape, and it would be completely out of character for Dumbledore to walk around telling everyone about his sexuality.

Did you want her to make him dress in glittery platform boots, a crop top, and decorate his office in rainbow flags to make it more obvious for you? Would that be enough of a stereotype to appease you people? Or what? Please tell me. I’d like to know how you think a gay character is supposed to be portrayed.

And did you miss the Grindelwald chapters in the ‘actual books’? Or was that also not obvious enough for you? Did Dumbledore need to whisper “always” wistfully in order for you to connect that he had romantic feelings for Grindelwald? Maybe you are American and need them to gaze longingly into each others eyes with awkward close ups of their fingers almost grazing each other that Hollywood thinks means ‘true love’. 

It didn’t fit into his relationship to Harry to ever say “I’m gay”, and so it was not stated explicitly (you might have noticed the book was told from Harry Potter’s perspective).

The point is though, that he is a homosexual, well respected, powerful, and very loved wizard- and his sexuality doesn’t matter because no one else thinks it matters. a.k.a. no one care that he loves men, and that is wonderful.

Special skills: extensive Harry Potter knowledge, can watch an entire TV show in a week, knows words to every Disney song, can form abnormally strong attachments to fictional characters, Microsoft Word

So you mean, able to retain knowledge, has incredible focus and drive, excellent at processing media, remembers obscure details when needed, and has great skill at creating connections with individuals despite minimal interfacing?

And Microsoft Word?

Tiger gets a bad baby tooth removed

When a tiger’s first response to having a tooth yanked is not a roar, snarl or swipe with claws, but a test nibble to check that its mouth works as well as it suddenly feels, it speaks volumes about how much the bad tooth* must have hurt.
*You can see, briefly, that it’s black and nasty on the inner side. Yuck.

poor baby

I’m just awed by the amount of trust in this gif. That tiger totally trusts that the human is going to help with that scary metal object on an already painful area and the human totally trusts that the tiger is just test nibbling and not chomping down on his arm. I flinch when a house cat comes at me too fast and these two don’t even hesitate to trust each other.

I’m trying hard to live by Cat Principles.

1- I am glorious above all things
2- Eat when hungry, sleep when sleepy, play when bored
3- Affection is given and received on my terms and only mine
4- Show displeasure clearly.
5- NO
6- Demand the things you want. If they aren’t given, demand them again, but louder this time.
7- If you are touched when you don’t want to be, say so. If they continue to touch you, make them bleed.

legolaspunxandbananas asked:

literally you stole someones art and passed it off as you're own and now you're acting like a big baby about it because you got caught. go fight everyone who has every posted an edit on the internet about copyright then.

I did not “literally” steal their artwork and claim it as my own. I even went out of my way to say that “I don’t know who made these…” I wasn’t aware that wanting to educate yourself on the copyright law was “acting like a big baby”.

Also, did you have to send this to me 20 times?
