Dear 10-Year-Old Self,
Before you ask me when you have your first kiss or if you’ll ever have a boyfriend, I need to tell you some more important stuff first. What’s more important than a first kiss, you ask? Plenty.
First of all, don’t let that kid in your class, Danny, who called you fat, make you self-consciously wear oversized sweatshirts for the next four years to hide your body. That kid is horrible and years from now he will be boring and bald and trying to get in touch with you to come to the set of the TV show you work on. No, you don’t work on Cheers. That show’s not on the air anymore. That would’ve been awesome, though.
Another thing: Say thank you, always. Gratitude is the closest thing to beauty manifested in an emotion. When you’re grateful, people are attracted to you.
Also: Make sure you appreciate Mom and Dad. Yes, they never seem to let you do anything now except read books. Once you turn 18 you’ll never get to live with them again, and you’ll live far away, and you will miss them so much it hurts.
Next: Learn forgiveness and bestow it generously.
Finally: Don’t let anyone give you any crap. Mastering a balance of these last two will take you a lifetime, so you had better get started now.
poc!potter makes so much sense though
think about it: petunia and vernon /hated/ james potter, made up stories about him “probably being unemployed” and they seemed to thoroughly dislike him for more than just the magic. how much d’you wanna bet me that their prejudice may have been on the racist side? they treated harry pretty awfully, even considering his magic. they hated that he looked like james as well.
plus, harry has “great skin” but no specified skin colour or tone or anything!
draw and write about east asian harry, south asian harry, black harry. draw harry potter in every single race there is.
poc!potter is not really a racebend bc it’s all within canon
I KNEW IT i freaking KNEW it wasn’t just my imagination that these dweebs shared a lot of dumb private jokes i kneeeeewwww iiiiiiiiit

I want Nishimiya to love herself.
As they sailed farther from the coast, the sky darkened and more stars came out. Percy studied the constellations—-the ones Annabeth had taught him so many years ago.
"Bob says hello," he told the stars.

"I’m cold." Harry glanced down at her words, but Ginny was already moving, stepping around him. "Make room."
"Wh-" Before he could protest, Ginny’s arms had wrapped around his middle, and her hands had slid into the pockets of his jacket, joining his own. He exhaled sharply, his breath misting in front of him.
"Should’ve been more prepared for the weather," he told her cheekily, his fingers curling around her (much colder) hands. Harry felt her cheek press between his shoulder blades as she mumbled in reply.
"It’s supposed to be Spring by now."
people who refuse to watch anything animated because they think its for people under the age of 10 are living a sad unfulfilled life and i can only pray that one day they will be able to see the light
