Harry was the favorite kid and he wasn’t even an official part of the family

Because Molly knows exactly how the Dursleys treat him. There’s no way Ron wouldn’t tell her. And Molly Weasley is a Mother. She gets a capital M because she is goddamn phenomenal at what she does. When she hears Harry Potter is on the train to Hogwarts in Book 1, her reaction isn’t to be starstruck. It’s to say “that poor dear had to come here all on his own.” Molly Weasley loves harder than anyone. She loves like it’s her sole reason for being. And when she hears there’s a poor boy who has never known love his whole life… how could she not?

In Year One Molly Weasley knit Harry a Weasley family sweater and made him homemade chocolate so he would have something to open on Christmas DON’T TOUCH ME



could I also just add that kids from abusive households tend to assume that yelling is directed at them and/or it heralds something bad for them so she’s making extra sure that he knows that this is not his fault and she’s not actually mad at him.

5 things i like about myself

yukiteru:

I got tagged by mythical-rhink :) I’ve been away for a while so sorry for the late response!

Read More

Oh I din expect you’ll tag me. Thanks yukiteru!
Hey! Once you get this, you must publicly say five things you like about yourself, then pass it on to fifteen. Not back to me :)

Not quite sure what I like about myself but here goes:
1) I’ve pretty good direction sense.
2) I’m much better in the sciences than the arts.
3) I try to do what I like/want to do, rather than what the society expects. (Shouldn’t we all live for ourselves, rather than for others? But sometimes, it can be hard.)
4) I almost always attend all lectures and tutorials and do my homework.
5) I enjoy reading the newspapers (and whatever interesting articles I may come across on the net).

Oh man I think I think I’m better off listing what I dislike. :( So many things to improve on.

I tag: ron-mmy, raaddd, fungyi, la-panda, hk-kr-tw-cn, dramaquotes, incessantcomposition, littlecloverstar, mic7879tvb, photoshopbyfyh. (By right it’s 15 but I dun rly know ppl on tumblr so there’s only 10. Oops!)

NYE at Marina Bay Sands. // This was the first time I’ve ever properly celebrated New Year’s with fireworks. It required 2hours of sitting on the ground with no personal space, and waiting for the train with about 20 thousand other people. But I’m pretty stoked on some of the moments I got to capture. It was certainly an adventurous way to usher in the new year. rachelsohphotography:

keep them! your watermarks are so classy :)

thank you!

pleopods-of-passion answered to your post “Help?”

keep the watermarks. I have a reposter blog so let me know if someone has been reposting from you and I’ll put their url on…

Maybe u can try incorporating the watermark into ur design? Like what I’ve done here and here. I think it may not be very possible for gifs but perhaps it may be possible for edits? Also takes more time n effort actually. Oh well, just a suggestion :)
PS: Ur works are awesome! Appreciate all the effort u’ve put in! :)

New DefinitionThe greatest debate on a modern city development is how well the local heritage on a site can maintain. It’s common in Hong Kong that urban redevelopment wipes out the original face of the entire zone. We cannot see any ‘old Hong Kong’ which many of us wish to re-visit, re-live the experience in the past. While most of the old Hong Kong heritage can be found in our Museum of History, it’s never comparable to a living one.
As a newer generation, I’m keen on these kind of living tradition. Besides the original purposes (mostly bring luck, prosperity, remove evil beings), it brings joy, entertainment and celebration to the people. I don’t think it’s easy to come up with a new traditions based on our region. That’s why we try so hard to embrace the existing ones. To name a few, the Fire Dragon Dance in Tai Hang and the Cheung Chau Bun Festival.
To celebrate the Birth of Buddha, apart from the normal lion, dragon dance; what’s special about this parade is that they dressed children as the ‘mini living statues’ to worship with. Each dressed up children on the trolley has become the center of attention, traditionally they dressed the children as gods, Chinese fictional characters. The locals have brought new twists to the children’s costumes as well as props that goes with it. Anything that’s in trend we can think of, some dressed as celebrities and even politicians, government officials to reflect the status of current affairs. It’s very unique.
The locals have made bun towers to worship with. Somehow, some time, they had turned it into a competition. It takes place in the midnight 12am. The buns you see on the tower has become the label of this special day. It’s told that the red stamps on each bun can bring you luck! It’s no surprised that everyone grabs a few of these steamy buns from the local bakery. The label ‘平安 or Ping An’  translates as calmness and safety. There’re also all kinds of printed souvenir available, from key chains to neck pillow, anything you can think of it might be there! apinhongkong:

To celebrate the Birth of Buddha, apart from the normal lion, dragon dance; what’s special about this parade is that they dressed children as the ‘mini living statues’ to worship with. Each dressed up children on the trolley has become the center of attention, traditionally they dressed the children as gods, Chinese fictional characters. The locals have brought new twists to the children’s costumes as well as props that goes with it. Anything that’s in trend we can think of, some dressed as celebrities and even politicians, government officials to reflect the status of current affairs. It’s very unique.
The locals have made bun towers to worship with. Somehow, some time, they had turned it into a competition. It takes place in the midnight 12am. The buns you see on the tower has become the label of this special day. It’s told that the red stamps on each bun can bring you luck! It’s no surprised that everyone grabs a few of these steamy buns from the local bakery. The label ‘平安 or Ping An’  translates as calmness and safety. There’re also all kinds of printed souvenir available, from key chains to neck pillow, anything you can think of it might be there!

The greatest debate on a modern city development is how well the local heritage on a site can maintain. It’s common in Hong Kong that urban redevelopment wipes out the original face of the entire zone. We cannot see any ‘old Hong Kong’ which many of us wish to re-visit, re-live the experience in the past. While most of the old Hong Kong heritage can be found in our Museum of History, it’s never comparable to a living one.

As a newer generation, I’m keen on these kind of living tradition. Besides the original purposes (mostly bring luck, prosperity, remove evil beings), it brings joy, entertainment and celebration to the people. I don’t think it’s easy to come up with a new traditions based on our region. That’s why we try so hard to embrace the existing ones. To name a few, the Fire Dragon Dance in Tai Hang and the Cheung Chau Bun Festival.
