And since I am already in full Inception fanart mode, here’s Ariadne!
yeah seriously tell us how wizardry’s done in the new world tell me how the wizards from france and spain and britain stamped out the brujos and the medicine men and set up their own schools tell me what the fuck the british raj did to fucking india because the patel twins are going to school in scotland and what are they told about their history, tell me about native american kids learning to say wingardium leviosa with hate in their hearts and tell me about wizarding rabbis bickering about whether you can use potions on the sabbath tell me about the slaves on their ships with their wands broken, mouthing curses in the dark tell me about the runaways that made it with garter snakes wrapped around their wrists that told them when they tasted dogs in the distance, tell me about the underground railroad and abolitionists with unbreakable vows and home-spun invisibility cloaks and disilusionments, using obliviate, using imperio, knowing that they served a higher justice, tell me about what happened to black wizards in the fifties, about what gates they were storming in the sixties tell me about queer wizards taking love potions every morning in their coffee to stay married to their husbands and their wives because what else could they do?
the world only begins and ends with straight white christians if you don’t bother looking any farther than that and too many people don’t and i am tired, tired, tired
In which Draco and Harry dress a little too quickly after a meeting
I don’t even ship it and this is awesome
Too old to return to Narnia?
You shoved me back into this wretched unformed child’s body, lion-god, and made me a thousand years a widow, and now I am too old?
If Susan had been standing next to the White Witch, before the Stone Table, looking down at Aslan bound and muzzled, she would have asked to wield the knife. (…) Peter was keeping his chin up and saying all the right things. Susan sank her teeth into her lower lip and thought that she would have given everything she had not to come back to Narnia this time.Aslan looked at her as he spoke. He knew what she was thinking, of course. He always did.Susan didn’t care. If he was going to go around refusing to be a tame lion, he could hardly fault her for refusing to be a tame woman.

the avengers as greek mythological figures: thor and loki as orpheus and eurydice
because you can’t talk about thor without talking about loki. thor is the man who follows loki into the dark, who is desperately, desperately trying to bring his brother back from the edge, despite all the laws of nature; that loki is the agent of chaos and the bringer of the ragnarok, that this is fate, that the dead stay dead. i don’t have a doubt in mind that if he was going to choose, definitively, between the avengers/earth/asgard even and loki, he’d choose loki every time. he’d choose to bring back his shade of a brother over the bounty of the earth, over the sun, over the laws of nature. and the tragic part of it all is that he can’t look at his brother, he can’t look back, because if he looks back then loki is lost. and that’s why he never understands loki fully, because he can’t look at him and see the absolute truth, because the sun cannot ever truly comprehend the dark.
