This is one of those “I scrolled down hoping for an explanation” things

Dude went to a Magic: The Gathering tournament and saw a whole lot of ass hanging out and decided to have fun with it.

This dude is also banned from said tournament because this photoset got so popular and it was considered insulting to the players…….

A true martyr.

this guy is my fucking idol

his pained face just makes this

this man is my hero

this is my favorite post tho

He looks like the pained son of Samwell Tarly and Jon Snow

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

#OKAY BUT CAN WE PLEASE TAKE A MINUTE TO APPRECIATE#THE OTHER THING THIS GRAPH THROWS INTO SHARP RELIEF:#THE FACT THAT FUCKING GINNY#HAD *HALF OF VOLDEMORT’S SOUL*#WHISPERING IN HER EAR AND CRAWLING INSIDE OF HER AND TRYING TO CONSUME HER FROM THE INSIDE OUT#YEAH#LIKE COOL HARRY HAS A SCAR AND CAN TALK TO SNAKES AND SOMETIMES GETS HEADACHES#POOR BABY#MEANWHILE GINNY ‘DERIDED BY FANDOM’ WEASLEY#TAKES IN HALF OF THAT FUCKER’S SOUL#AND STILL CAME OUT ON TOP#who’s your hero now harry potter fandom#yeah that’s what i thought (via riversonglife)

 Harry has more Voldemort in him than Voldemort

Harry would be before the diary because he became Voldemorts first horcrux when Voldemort killed Lily and James potter…

No Harry was the second to last horcrux. Tom made the diary and ring while he was still at hogwarts (16 year old riddle in diary and we see him wearing the ring in the flashbacks and him killed morfin for the ring horcrux). He got the diadem form where the grey lady hid it in Albania when he was traveling after finishing school, and hid the finished horcrux in the room of requirement when he applied for the DADA job. He got the locket and cup when working at borgan and birks. Having horcruxes already is what allowed him to survive the rebounded killing curse in the first place. If he had no horcruxes before trying to kill the potters he would not have survived. Don’t think you can out-Harry-Potter-knowledge me, son.

Obviously she’s just confused

Still pretty proud of my response to this.

I was totally down with the change over already, but not knowing the backstory, this just convinced me so hard that Captain America needs to be a minority right now. 
Before, Marvel said, “This is what you want? Well fuck you, he isn’t going to help you.” 
Now Marvel is saying, “This is who you’re throwing under the bus? Who you’re tossing into prison like he doesn’t mean anything? Who you demonize regularly? Well fuck you, he’s going to save you anyway.”
And as far as the Thor thing, that whole, “If he be worthy part,” yeah, they’re giving the finger to the patriarchy right there saying, “Hey, women are worthy too.”
If these two things were spaced out, I might believe that they were just marketing ploy, but they come so close together at a time where this message is necessary, I can’t help but think that there are people at Marvel who get it and are going with it. 
I mean, if they were willing to fight Hitler during WWII, why not be willing to fight some of the evils of today?

Steve and Natasha in unison: "NO."
