People who hate Harry Potter missed the a giant part of the story. Despite being abused by his aunt, uncle and cousin his whole life Harry was kind, compassionate, loyal, protective and honest. He defended those who needed it and stood up to those who deserved it. He didn’t become bitter or hateful. And he spent his life trying to protect others. You can’t hate him because people chose to stand by him even if it meant they’d die. He didn’t want that, he wanted everyone to live even if it meant he couldn’t anymore.

It’s because he suffered PTSD in book 5 and was mistaken for a whiny angsty teen.

This times 100 billion. I had arguments over book 5 in which I cried because I identified so badly with Harry, as a young person with PTSD. Harry is not a bad person. He is a very, very hurt person who has been very poorly supported.

CAN I JUST SAY TO ANYONE SUFFERING WITH MENTAL ILLNESS YOU ARE ONE BADASS MOTHER FRICKER BECAUSE NOTHING IS MORE TERRIFYING THAN BATTLING WITH YOUR OWN MIND EVERY SINGLE DAY

Just watched Captain Phillips and…

The most poignant part was the very end. If you don’t want to be spoiled, then skip this. But the scene in the medical bay…my God. That corpsman O’Brien was absolutely incredible. Portrayed by actual Navy medical staff member Petty Officer 2nd Class Danielle Albert, there was a comforting control and reality in her. Her knowledge and compassion, her steadiness… It was incredible.

She’d never acted. She was told by Hanks to “do what she does every day.” To just “react to how I’m acting.”

I don’t have words for how much I was moved by her performance.

This, this, this. Thank God for medics like her, who can stay calm and bring calmness while doing their jobs, and help traumatized individuals. This whole scene just destroyed me.

And finally I give up and curl up beside Finnick,trying to block out the excruciating sounds of Prim, Gale, my mother, Madge, Rory, Vick, even Posy, helpless little Possy...

welp, here I am in my closet.
it’s actually quite cool though. I have a load of pillows and stuffed animals, and twinkly lights, a little sheer ceiling, and lots of cute pics/inspirational quotes etc on the walls. I love it in here.
