Wicked: A Summary
I THINK MY FAVORITE THING IS WHEN PEOPLE GET REALLY MAD OR FRUSTRATED OR SAD IN THEIR TAGS AND YELL ABOUT HOW UPSET THEY ARE IN ALL CAPS AND THEYRE ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE THAT TAG REGULARLY SO IT’S JUST ALL THIS SCREAMING AND THEN LIKE fandom title in lowercase
do you ever think about the judges for the triwizard tournament trying to figure out who to kidnap for the second task
like they’re all just sitting in dumbledore’s office and karkaroff goes “well word on the street says that krum has a crush on that granger girl”
"damn," says dumbledore, "I wanted harry to rescue her. well, what about the delightful miss chang?"
"no," says bagman, "we’ve got her down for diggory"
"stop sinking my ships," says dumbledore
“I have an ache in my bones
that only subsides when you press your lips against mine
And I no longer feel like I’m going to collapse on the ground
But when your arms are wrapped around my waist
I can feel that I’m sturdier
And like I can stand on my own two feet without the wind blowing me over
And when you slip your hand into mine
I feel like I can carry the weight of the world,
When before it felt the like a rain drop could crush me into a million pieces
And most of all,
When you sigh the words ‘I love you’
into my mouth
I feel like nothing in my past can hurt me
And that I’m no longer afraid of the space around me
I know I shouldn’t use you as medicine
But I’ve never felt this powerful”
waking up cold: alright I need more blankies
waking up hot: covers thrown everywhere. sweat behind the kneecaps. 3 dead. the pillow is the sun. critical condition.
“See, Rowling largely operates Harry’s generation in a clear system of parallels to the previous generation, Marauders and all. Harry is his father—Quidditch star, a little pig-headed sometimes, an excellent leader. Ron is Sirius Black—snarky and fun, loyal to a fault, mired in self-doubts. Hermione is Remus Lupin—book smart and meticulous, always level-headed, unfailingly perceptive. Ginny is Lily Evans—a firecracker, clever and kind, unwilling to take excuses. Draco Malfoy is Severus Snape—a natural foil to Harry, pretentious, possessed of the frailest ego and also deeper sense of right and wrong when it counts. And guess what? Neville Longbottom is Peter Pettigrew.
Neville is a perfect example of how one single ingredient in the recipe can either ruin your casserole (or stew, or treacle tart, whatever you like), or utterly perfect your whole dish. Neville is the tide-turner, the shiny hinge. And all because he happens to be in the same position as Wormtail… but makes all the hard choices that Pettigrew refused the first time around. Other characters are in similar positions, but none of them go so far as Neville. None of them prove that the shaping of destiny is all on the individual the way he does.”
