Something I’ve never noticed before:
Snape not only deflects McGonagall’s attack but uses it to take down Alecto and Amycus in a single armwave behind his visual field. Like they both had their wands out too but BOY they did not see that coming. Snape knew that he needed to get rid of them before being driven out of the castle so that they wouldn’t harm any of the students GOD what a badass motherfucker 

I never noticed this! Shame on me.

the legend of korra


"If somebody comes up to me, it's because they're moved by something I'm moved by. I've never taken a job I didn't love ... So when somebody's coming up to me, or they're writing, they're in the same space I am in. I write for fanboy moments. I write to give myself strength. I write to be the characters that I am not. I write to explore all the things I'm afraid of. I write to do all the things the viewers want too. So the intensity of the fan response is enormously gratifying. It means I hit a nerve."

I’m sorry did you save the doctor with cpr

Did you defeat a witch’s spell with a rhyming word from harry potter

Did you take care of the doctor in 1913 England when he didn’t even remember himself

Did you recognize the master before the doctor did

Did you save all of humanity’s ass from the master by spreading the story of the doctor?

No?

Then why don’t you stop being a little bitch about Martha Jones being a useless unneeded character
