❝ You’ll need coffee shops and sunsets and road trips. Airplanes and passports and new songs and old songs, but people more than anything else. You will need other people and you will need to be that other person to someone else, a living breathing screaming invitation to believe better things. ❞

Excerpt from a hp I will write eventually: aka a better (but not perfect) reason for Albus Severus' name

Tonight at campfire, I curled up in blankets next to some of the other counselors. They were warm and sturdy, but I still wished he was there. I always do when he isn’t around.
I wrote him a letter. He says we need to have a heart-to-heart. And he told me that I remind him of his old girlfriend. I’m not sure how to feel about that.

I was reminded of all the times I’ve felt abandoned by people who I desperately wanted to notice me. And I cried before he left, but I couldn’t tell him why. I want to try, though.

I suspect that Jo Rowling probably imagined James and Harry as white too, i don’t mind that, that’s her business.

Personally I’m mentally acting against the white-as-default-unless-otherwise-specified that’s pervasive in imagining media especially…
