“The Ministry of Magic does not wish me to tell you this.

It is my belief, however, that the truth is generally preferable to lies, and that any attempt to pretend that Cedric died as the result of an accident, or some sort of blunder of his own, is an insult to his memory.”

“Remember Cedric.

Remember, if the time should come when you have to make a choice between what is right and what is easy, remember what happened to a boy who was good, and kind, and brave, because he strayed across the path of Lord Voldemort.

Remember Cedric Diggory.”

This is the #HarryPotter scene circulating on Chinese social media as a way to discretely mourn the death of Dr. #LiWenliang. 🕯

I was listening to Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, specifically the 2nd task, and I HAVE SOME QUESTIONS

Namely, how did Fleur Delacour and Cedric Diggory breathe inside their bubble head charm??
In the movie, the charm is depicted like this, just a little bubble around the nose and mouth of the caster.
However, for the purposes of this argument, I'm going to go with the book's description which is more like an upside-down fishbowl. Like this poor human is demonstrating.

The police interrupted a @BritishQuakers Meeting for Worship yesterday then made 50+ arrests.

I want to tell you the story.

First off, it was big. Very big. Outside of a Yearly Meeting, I have never in 33 years of being a Quaker seen a Meeting this big.
@BritishQuakers It was in the road outside of the world's largest arms fair.

@Quakers_RoR organised it to disrupt the setup of the arms fair. Together we had blocked the East Gate since 7.15am.

It was publically advertised as from 2-2.45pm. Here is where I was sitting.
@BritishQuakers @Quakers_RoR At about 2.30ish the police "interrupted our quiet time" to tell us if we did not leave the road by 3pm we would be arrested.

Here is my view of an officer doing so.

I stayed for hours after my shift yesterday to be with a little girl whose daddy was dying. We coloured and sang and wandered the secret passageways of the hospital. She confided in me that she is in fact Hermione Granger, a good wizard. I made her a special wand...
She said she only uses her magic for good. She cast spells that all the sick people would get better. She cast a best friend spell on us. She stole my heart & everyone who met her.

I have never met such a special little girl & I started to believe she did hold magical powers
The whole purpose in spending that time with her was to shield her, even if only for those moments, the grief of watching daddy pass away, and allow mommy private time to be with him.
But also to keep her close by for the frequent hugs Mom would come and collect...

La leyenda urbana de que todos los relojes en Pulp Fiction están parados a las 4:20 es falsa. Algunos sí, pero no todos ni mucho menos. Hay relojes importantes en la trama que ni de cerca.

Dans la dernière saison de #GameofThrones, #JonSnow , alias Aegon Targaryen, a répété au moins 5 fois qu'il ne voulait pas devenir roi. Comment comprendre ce refus ? Une réponse via l'histoire de la #fantasy et la philosophie politique médiévale. Un thread ! (Pas de spoilers !)
Dans un article publié en 2018 (@CRH_ehess), j'ai montré que le refus du pouvoir traversait toute la fantasy, depuis l'origine du genre (poke @breton_justine, @anne_besson, @kitsunegari13...)
Prenons quelques exemples célèbres : Richard Rahl (Goodkind, Sword of Truth) abandonne son pouvoir suprême à la fin du tome 11. Pug (Feist, Chroniques de Krondor) renonce à son titre de « Tout-Puissant » pour simplement redevenir Pug.

Grosse ambiance de travail aujourd'hui puisque je décide de me lancer parallèlement dans la série à succès Game of Thrones que finalement peu de gens connaissent. Je vous ferai part de mes réactions au fur et à mesure.
Ha ben super tout le monde est découpé en deux, bonne ambiance.
Ned Stark il faudrait qu'il apprenne à faire un peu plus confiance aux gens et à ouvrir son coeur à l'inconnu parce que là à force de couper des têtes, son image va en prendre un coup.

Hey hey thanks for the follow! 😇

I got my baby @TavolozzaPH rolling in 2011 on pre-order, making 4-5 PHP figures in college. No FB ads, no Shopify, just sweat, internet tuts, an overdose of playing The Sims, MythWar, GTA + pure hard code & hard work.

How I did it? 👇[THREAD]
Didn't know shit in business nor marketing. I don't even know what career I would have had but I had "alright" skills growing up:

I know how to:
1. Draw so I got a good eye for design
2. People-watch
3. Write (loved writing short stories, even pirated a Harry Potter spin-off!)
And another very crucial thing: I AM SO IN LOVE WITH LEARNING. If I liked something I'd learn it.

Liked to make good posters? Learned graphic design.
Liked a website? Learned how to code.
Liked Sims furniture? Learned how to custom made one.

Key was: I'd ALWAYS find a way.

Me and JK Rowling; A Thread: I grew up not just with Harry Potter but down the road from JK Rowling, in Edinburgh. A place where it was easy to imagine the world she had created had come to life. Like most children and teens, I was obsessed with the books and couldn't wait for
each new one. Going past her house on the bus I would desperately try and peer over the fence. Reading interviews I felt inspired by her story, her clear love of Scotland and her struggles as a single mum. Like me, she seemed to be a true socialist at heart, and the books
reflected that too; they were full of stories about justice, love and kindness. I was perhaps a bit let down when I found out her kids attended private school, since Edinburgh has so many excellent state schools, mine being one of them. But she was still a hero, an inspiration.

12pm: fire up #HarryPotter and the #DeathlyHallows pt2 for the potential finale of the #HarryPotterLiveTweet series

While we're watching this, remember that Harry was essentially a foster child, and every child deserves love and shelter:


Man it really sucks that y'all had to WAIT for this movie and I can just binge.

On the other hand, I have had like ZERO time to process my losses.

Man this shit is depressing.

Snape is up to something.

Jokes on all of you! I have no soul LEFT to crush! It has evaporated from the Half Blood Prince. There's no way it can get worse.

This is gonna be all sunshine, puppies, and fucking rainbows.

Oh shit Bill Nighe? I have no idea how to spell his name.

But I fucking love him.

Jesus they're all adults now.

Never seen any of these before. Today is day four.

But I know lots of people are watching too. This feels like a movie theater!
