A+ effort to the Pottermore team for specifically setting out to correct/add to/improve scenes from the movies.
The only new canon is that Luna’s mother’s name was Pandora
I also enjoyed dangling Bill’s fang earring very much
James and Lily with Harry as he battles Voldemort - Released 30.7.14 on Pottermore.
Would you convert to a different religion, like paganism or Buddhism? I read your response to the other religion question, and felt like this was just something I had to ask.
No, I mean, it’s not Catholicism that I have an issue with (okay, well I do have some issues with it but not everyone is a super strict Catholic) but just religion in general. I’m sorry I know my last ask was dramatic, I just had an bad day and I can’t imagine that I’m not bipolar at this point.
this is a weird question, but do you believe in God? (I don't in case you're thinking I'm trying to promote religion to you)
I was raised Catholic, but I find it very difficult now to have faith, and not just because I’m pretty liberal. I’ve had a lot of crappy things happen to me in my life, not super traumatic things, but nothing ever seems to turn out right, but even through all that, I stuck with it, maybe out of desperately wanting to believe in an afterlife.
But like, without going into the whole ridiculous story, my experience with this guy has kind of made me stop caring about religion. Like I met him, and I thought it meant something, like finally something in my pathetic life was going to turn out right. But I was horribly, horribly wrong, and now I’m more miserable than ever, and I don’t even care about an afterlife because I won’t be with him. I don’t even know what I’m living for any more.
I have a few people that I’m close to, like my cousins for example, but it’s not enough to compensate for when I’m lonely and sad the other 92% of the time.
If I’m drawing myself I’m gonna make myself as skinny as I want so there

What is your personal favorite ask Jily post that you have ever done?
It’s ugly (well, most of them are) but maybe this old one: http://julvett.tumblr.com/post/11305957181
Most days I wish I never met you because then I could sleep at night and I wouldn’t have to walk around with the knowledge there was someone like you out there.

I’m starting to think it might be a good idea for me to tell work guy how I feel about him. I know for sure he doesn’t return the feelings, but I don’t know, I think I just need hear him crush me, so I won’t look forward to being around him so much. I think the only way to stop constantly thinking of how I would tell him is to actually tell him.
I don’t know what consequences it would have for me job-wise… he’s very professional and I don’t think he’d react well, but I’ve accepted that. I’d just try to make it clear that I don’t have any expectations and hope we could still be friends? I think I’d steal from the Love Actually scene, where he tells her she’s perfect without ‘hope or agenda’, or the pamela scene from Louie.
I don’t know how strong to come on though, I think suspects/thinks I have a little crush on him, but it’s so much more than that. My world revolves around him, he’s the love of my life, and the thought of being with anyone else makes me more miserable than being alone.
does anyone have an opinion on this or should i shut up now?
If I can get this off my chest, and can find a spare minute of time, I can work on doing some HP art I’ve been wanting to do based on the Pottermore articles. cool.
Is your icon Megan Fox in a wedding dress because you're sad about work guy getting married? (Sorry for being so insensitive God I'm an awful person ugh *hugs* *only if you accept the hug* *because nonconsentual hugs suck* *please accept my hug*)
It’s not insensitive, and yeah that’s the reason. The only way I’d ever have a wedding picture looking that happy is if I was marrying him.
(and of course I accept your hug)
Just getting to read the new HP stuff now because I’ve been away. Have people been talking about Rolf Scamander being described as ‘swarthy’? I’m excited to think what this could mean for the casting of Newt in Fantastic Beasts.
Of course, this definitely doesn’t mean Newt was a POC, and based on the names of his family, I’m wondering if the swarthiness comes from Greek blood. Like, Newts are generally found in more Northern areas, and the name Rolf is Germanic, Lorcan is Irish, and Lysander is Greek. That’s the only link we have to a deeper skinned ethnicity I think? And may have come from the mothers side anyway. Either way, the small detail makes me very hopeful that we could see Newt as a Poc.
Hey, sweetie! I really hope you're doing even just a tiny bit better from the other days, since I got the impression that this is quite a rough period..I hope something irrationally funny has just happened, or that you've found in a friend a good shoulder to lean on, and I hope those anxiety attacks never hit on you again and that assholes have stopped bothering you. Waah, I just wish you to be happy, because you deserve it <3 <3
Thanks, I’m actually on family vacation this week, which is why I’ve been a bit quiet on here… it was rough for me last week since I had a ton of anxiety about leaving my job and being out of contact with work guy for the longest time since last December. But it’s been ok, all my cousins are wonderful, and though nothing can completely take my mind off him, I am legitimately enjoying myself here.
Which ask jily post do you this is the most famous/has the most notes?
The last one I did also got pretty popular, although not everyone liked it.
what do you do when youre having an anxiety attack but you have no one to talk to and you just probably creeped out the guy you were sitting next to when it started who also happens to be the love of your life and who will never ever love you back
