Mediocre {2011} →

floatinginthethoughtstreams:

When I become this, or transform into that, I will know it. And you will know it as well. And we will fly from the eaves of rooftops letting our vertigo fly ahead of us in either direction. Existing for each other is not terrible-but it’s mediocre when this world could mean so much more-more than…

Maybe Not.

I wrote you a letter today. It was really more of an apology. A long, long overdue apology. I know you don’t understand why I jumped ship after she died. I know you may never forgive me. I know I may never earn that respect and trust back. I also know I may never forgive myself for abandoning you, so you don’t really need to forgive me you can’t or won’t. I respect that. What you need to realize was that I was a kid too. Yeah, I was 18/19, but I had just started college, just moved away from you two and then the ringtone for mom started to play and I answered and she just told me to come home. She didn’t even care enough about me to tell me Mammaw had died. I had to call your dad, I had to hear about it.

I never got to say goodbye.

You two were my entire world for as long as you had been alive, and she had been my sun for even longer than that. She was, and in so many little ways still is, my foundation. She was the ground I built my life on. She was never our Mammaw, she had always been our mommy.

I remember you being a toddler and my carrying you everywhere. I remember how you loved to “fly”. I remember that your bath water had to be lukewarm and Mammaw always let you play with Barbies even though you were a boy.

I did my best and it wasn’t good enough. I’m sorry.

quote I have to keep reminding myself
That no matter how little I may feel
Nothing is a failure
If I learn from it
I have to keep reminding myself
That it’s okay to
Have been so sad that I didn’t go to class
It’s okay if I slipped up and called somebody
Whose number I meant to erase
It’s okay if I spend a few days in bed
So long as I get up again
I have to remind myself that
I wasn’t made to be perfect
I was made to grow
And nothing is a mistake if
I am better because of it

You let me build a world on rhyme,
and then you made my poems a crime—

imprisoned me in what I said,
then set me free within your bed.

And so you bled, and so I drank,
dissenter in a lover’s ranks,

vampiric in a liquid ache,
a madness that was mine to wake.

But I would starve among the…

LeakyCon is a Harry Potter convention that has been happening since 2009, in various locations. It started in Boston, then in 2011 it was in Orlando, in 2012 it was in Chicago, and in 2013 it was in both Portland and London.
LeakyCon 2014 is going back to Orlando from July 30th to August 3rd, to coincide with Harry Potter and JK Rowling’s birthday.
It’s a little bit like Comic Con, but much smaller and more Potter-oriented, but it has expanded to include programs that have to do with other fandoms, like Doctor Who, Glee, and The Hunger Games. The programs range from Q&A’s with stars from Harry Potter to Disney sing-a-longs!
To get a good feel for the convention as a whole, you should watch their opening ceremonies from LeakyCon Portland last year!
LeakyCon is a great place to meet new people or hang out with people you already know, and I’ve never known anyone to not have fun at the con.
You can register for LeakyCon here!
Can anyone else share their LeakyCon experiences and help hippogriff-hugger out?

Christmas in Harry Potter

thepopcultureprincess:

Although Christmas may seem incidental in the Harry Potter universe, included merely for the sake of realism and perhaps a break from often complex, bleak, or tense plots, each of the seven Christmases in the books is important in its own way. Christmas tends to unveil important information or clues, which are often lost to us in the decadence of the holiday. JK Rowling is a master of hiding clues in plain sight, and she expertly uses the excitement of Christmas to plant clues or to foreshadow future events without us noticing. Let’s take a look at exactly what goes down in the seven Christmases we share with Harry.

(This should go without saying, but this post will contain spoilers galore.)
