the fact that there’s only about 5000 people who’ve reblogged this scares me. That means that less that 5000 people know where these come from.

Reading Wild Magic at 26 instead of 10 (Oy, I feel old) I’m struck by how much more interesting the adults are to me now. This coterie of people around the Riders is obviously like this little ad-hoc family of adults who are kind of misfits elsewhere—Onua, Numair, Buri, Sarge, Thayet, Alanna, George, Kuri, and eventually Daine. The adults spend so much time lovingly shit-talking each other. (Numair opened his eyes. “You’re talking about me. I can tell.” “He’s vain, too,” Onua said loudly. [And shit-talks him some more] “But that’s my good side,” protested Numair. “You really should tell her some of my faults.” He paused, then added, “Then again—please don’t. I forgot you actually know my faults.”)
It’s like they’re this secret little coterie of people who are necessary to the Crown and therefore vested with a lot of power, but aggressively working to keep each other sane and humble. The Riders are called the Irregulars, but people like Daine and Numair are Irregulars too, in their own way.
Society of misfits, population n+1. *squishy heartmarks*
Also, this time, Numair seems so young. He’s my age. Now I’m like, “Omg bb, you are such a dork and you don’t know how to help it and you really want to be friends with people but you’re not super good at it, are you?” I’d always pictured his student-days hookup with Varice as this totally suave adult affair, but omg, they were probably like highschoolers or something. Onua tells Daine that he took pity and made friends with her when she was new to Tortall, but what probably happened was Numair ambushing her with HI ARE YOU NEW IM NEW HAVE YOU HEARD ABOUT WILD MAGIC? I THINK IT IS VERY AWESOME AND YOU HAVE SOME. LET’S BE FRIENDS AND I WILL FOLLOW YOU AROUND THE STABLES.
SHOUTOUT TO THAT ONE PERSON THAT HEARS YOU WHEN YOU’RE TALKING IN A GROUP AND SMILES OR REPLIES SO YOU DONT FEEL LIKE A TWAT
#steve is like what #someone’s playing galaga #wait i don’t know what galaga is #shit what if it’s important #is it a sport #is it a band #is it a board game #like monopoly #(thank god they still have monopoly) #god i’d better just look #it’s behind me isn’t it #there is nothing behind me #GOSH DARN IT 21ST CENTURY
I like how many parts of the movie you realize Thor, Steve, and Loki really do not know what the fuck is going on.
I just want a movie with Thor, Steve and Loki attempting to figure out this century. LIke, no action, no adventure, no explosions. Just wifi.
And then every so often Tony shows up and just rolls his eyes as Loki screams at the toaster, demanding for it to surrender his breakfast.
You guys really just want an Avengers sitcom, don’t you
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
