He called me a Mudblood.
She is a Muggleborn. Do you realise what that means?
She read it somewhere. Somewhere, in a book, stands an explanation for the term “Mudblood”. How can you explain something like this in a academic way?
Imagine little Hermione, walking into Diagon Alley the very first time, all excited about this new magical world. The first shop she enters is Flourish and Blotts, obviously. And as she walks around, fascinated by all this crazy stuff, all this possibilities, she sees a book. Maybe it explains the magic world to Muggleborns, maybe it’s a “Wizard 101”, maybe a history book of expressions, I don’t know. Of course, Hermione wants to know everything there is to know, so she buys it. It’s new to her, this world. after all.
And when she’s back home, she starts to read. She reads the whole book in one run, until 3 am. And somewhere in this book, the term “Mudblood” is used. She is curious, so she reads even faster. And there it is, a word for ‘her kind’ of witch. She is dirty, she is worthless. She is something people she never met find disgusting. In her world she was different, and in this new world she is a nothing, just another dirty intruder.
So she starts to study. She was always very fond of school, but now she wants to be even better then before. Because she wants to show this people that she is worthy, that she can and will be a good witch. But even though she learns as much as she can, even though she finds friends in this new world, there is still this little voice in her head telling her that there will always be people who will hate her for her blood status, for the fact that her parents aren’t wizards.
And she isn’t the only one. There are other children who carry the same burden, possibly their whole life.
if u ever feel sad remember that robert englund once took a nap on the set of a nightmare on elm street in full freddy krueger makeup and when he woke up he looked straight into a mirror and scared the shit out of himself
this is the best story
When I say “please don’t take a picture of me” it’s not because I’m being bitchy and stubborn, it’s because if I see that picture I will seriously feel so bad about myself and think I am the ugliest thing on earth and sink a little deeper into self consciousness and hatred.
and before anyone says anything about selfies- those are controlled photos.
according to popular show like pretty little liars
teen girls dress like this everyday
with a completely different outfit every single day never wearing the same thing
and they are all flawlessly beautiful and have impeccable bodies
u know what teenage girls really look like?
and wear shit like this
why is it so fucking hard to have a show that portrays girls in a realistic flawed way. why do we keep lying to ourselves so much
