Hi, I'm called Nicole, or at least that's what everyone calls me. I can't seem to figure out why. I post SuperWhoLock, Harry Potter, Avengers (and other Marvel stuff), WTNV, Merlin, and various other shit that amuses me. Feel free to message me at any time!

When I was first starting the whole process of finding applying to colleges, I was blessed enough to attend one of the best charter schools in the country, with several great teachers and a CAP Advisor that put so much time and effort into helping us figure out what we were going to do with our futures. I know not everyone is so lucky to have access to the same sort of people or resources, so here’s a long masterpost of many useful links and lots of great information you can use. If you ever want advice or to talk about college, feel free to message me!

they’re the ones who know all the lyrics to the weird sisters songs and bastille songs they crush on the chosen one and tom hiddleston they go to both walt disney world and the quidditch world cup final for summer holiday and use magic to fix their laptops they’ve got the best of both worlds

I love that these ladies basically sent these dudes howlers.
At work the other day, a customer tried to take a photo of myself and another dancer, which is explicitly against the rules of our club. I grabbed his phone out of his hand, deleted the pics, and then proceeded to text his parent’s mobile number a message that basically said “I’m at the stripclub and I tried to sneak a picture so now strippers have stolen my phone and are letting you so you know that I’m bad at respecting club rules.”

Just want to say something.
People always complain about how Harry never named one of his children after Remus, while Remus was an extremely important person in Harry’s life and so on and so forth.
Well, there’s actually an extremely simple explanation to that problem.
Harry already had a son named after Remus Lupin.
Teddy Remus Lupin was Harry’s first son.
You’ll never be able to convince me Harry didn’t think this.
