I'm an Anti-Hero Inside My Own Head

Anonymous asked: can u write something in which Lily finds out that her father was Marius Black - a squib?

thejilyship:

Second time I got this request, so I guess I’ll give it a shot.

 Lily didn’t fancy the idea of having all four of the Marauders at her house at the same time. At Hogwarts, there was room for them, and not physical space for them, they weren’t too large to fit into the Evan’s modest sized house. It just seemed like their personalities took up too much room and made Lily feel the need to stand against the wall, out of their way.

Sirius was lounging on the couch, with his feet resting on the coffee table, tossing chocolate candies into Peter’s open mouth, James was having Remus explain to him just how exactly the television worked, while flipping through the channels at lighting speed. They weren’t being particularly loud or obnoxious, and still Lily was nervous.

Both of her parents were getting on in years, her dad turning sixty next year and when you couple that with his weak heart, Lily worrying about the Marauders being a bit too… Marauder-esque was entirely warranted.

"I just don’t understand," James was crouching down behind the television now, inspecting the electrical socket. "Why does it stop working when you take this thing out of the wall?" He pulled on the cord and marveled at the screen as it faded black.

"Didn’t you pay attention at all during Muggle Studdies?" Remus asked, taking the cord out of James’ hand and plugging it back in.

"Don’t let him stick his fingers in the outlet." Lily laughed, only half joking as her boyfriend knelt even closer to the socket. She heard her dad’s car pull into the driveway and her heart picked up. "He’s here!" She said, rushing over to Sirius and pulling on his arms, forcing him into an upright position. "Peter, pick up those candies!" He complied quickly. She rushed over to James, and helped him to his feet.

Of course, Mr. Evans had already met James a number of times, but Lily was still worried that her dad would suddenly change his mind about him. She tried to flatten his hair a bit and James pushed her hands away from his head, ruffling it back up.

"It looks worse when you do that." He said.

"Trust him," Sirius laughed. "He spent almost three hours trying to get it to lay flat for yo-" Sirius was interrupted when a pillow hit him in the face.

"No!" Lily hissed, taking the pillow away from Sirius and setting it right on the couch.  

"Lily! I’m home!" Her dad called out as he walked through the front door.

"Sit!" She pointed to the couch and James, Remus and Peter all promptly joined Sirius. Sirius even managed to sit up straight and look like a proper, authority fearing youth. They all did. Lily was quite proud of them.

Like seriously, why isn’t pole dancing an olympic sport? This is freakin gymnastics. This is strength and skill. This is not sexual whatsoever. Why does pole dancing have to be so stigmatised as a sexual thing that only strippers do? I have great respect for all people who can pull this off. This is art and beauty right here. 

because sex workers invented it. can we stop trying so hard to ~elevate~ stripping/pole dance from its roots? thx

Nobody gives the black girl mob credit for being smart as fuck. They clown but at the end of the day they are really intelligent.

And it’s not subtle at all.
Taystee is a math prodigy in addition to being well-read, Poussey is multilingual, Cindy just knows shit, Suzanne studies Shakespeare, Watson was a good student in addition to being a track star, Vee is basically an evil genius. Piper often learns the most from them; they taught her how to fight and helped translate Pennsatucky’s biblical threat.
The show flat out acknowledges the (academic) intelligence of the black inmates time and time again, but the audience collectively ignores it.

This is potentially life saving information everyone should know.

No you guys this post helped me find my cat. He was missing for almost a month and I’ve had him for over 12 years. After seeing this I put his favorite blanket he always slept on outside hoping he would smell mine or his scent and he was back the next fucking day asleep on it.

When my cat got out, we called and called for him, and then, later that night, I remembered similar advice to this, and so put his little scratching pad, which he adores, on the front porch. Not even half an hour later, I heard a thump, opened the door, and there was his big butt, meowing at me.

Did you know Frida Kahlo actually went the extra mile and used makeup to make her natural mustache even darker. She gave no fucks about racist beauty standards and was trying to make you uncomfortable so fuck everyone who’s ever said she would have been prettier if she just did something about her facial hair.

Please help keep our cat shelter from closing

This has been a summer of chaos.  Both the city of Winnipeg and Manitoba Hydro decided to make getting to our adoption centre almost impossible.  This means that total adoptions are WAY down, and income from our adoption center is almost nil.  Add in a 10 day adoption event that fell far short of reasonable goals, both in terms of completed adoptions and dollars raised, and you have us in dire straits, again.
Over the past 6 weeks, expenses have exceeded income by over $10,000.
Most of this shortfall is directly attributable to the fact that it is almost impossible for the general public to get to us while the city and Hydro are digging up every road around us.
We are not being extravagant.  We are not holding catnip parties every night, or sending staff on luxury junkets.  We are operating at bare bones minimums.  Our staff and volunteers are making heroic efforts to care for the critters and conserve resources.  Board members have dug deep to provide what they can.  Without these efforts our situation would be much worse.

Guys please spread this around and donate if you can! I volunteer at Craig Street Cats, and we’re in serious need of help! We care for hundreds of cats both in the shelter and around the city. Without help we’re in danger of closing and all our precious, sweet cats won’t have anywhere to go!
As of Aug. 28th we’ve raised less than $2000 of our $17,000 goal. Please help us get the $15,000 we need to stay afloat! Donate!

update: We’ve only raised about $4000. We still need $13,000. We’ll be very thankful for any little bit you can contribute so please do what you can.
