Author John Scalzi was on a roll this morning (currently 7:14 AM, 26 Sept. 2014) with a tweet he found from some guy sending out an “ultimatum” to women to “make a choice” between feminism and, well, men like him. So Scalzi launched into a truly magnificent set of scorchers, which I’m posting here for the delectation of people everywhere.
Also: I would like to thank that guy for setting the ultimatum. It makes finding a boyfriend so much easier when the undesirable ones wear a placard identifying themselves.
By nature, Aaron Hotchner is not a violent man. At least, that’s what everyone believes and knows.
But in the moment Chester Hardwick speaks about killing two FBI agents and Reid is shrinking back slightly against the wall, something snaps inside of him.
He already knows unconsciously that the genius is thinking of some plan, some long-winded statistics to get them out of this mess, but he either doesn’t care or doesn’t notice. All he sees is a killer and a coward. A bully.
And god be damned, Spencer Reid has been through more than enough crap in his career as it is—more than any of them.
Aaron also knows he probably has been getting rusty over the years in his combat expertise from the days of being in SWAT. He’s not as fit as he once was. But he also is going through that uncontested divorce with Haley, and it’s gotten him more stressed than normally seen…or felt.
A lot of pent-up anger is the chemical for the other emotional kick of wanting to protect his friend. His partner. His other half, really. The team can say what they want, but when the unit chief and the kid are together? Nothing stands in their way.
Chester Hardwick threatened his better half; Aaron doesn’t take that lightly.
Even with Spencer quietly and frantically considering plans, the gloves, jacket, and tie all come off.
And Hardwick is gonna regret it if the young genius doesn’t speak in twenty-three seconds.
I laugh so much at those homophobes who are into literature and classic stuff because like hey you’re into michelangelo? gAY. you like Virginia Woolf books? totally leSBO. you think oscar wilde is modernist and agree with his philosophies? gAY. you like the iliad? greek mythology? any era of history tbh? GAY GAY TRIPLE GAY. everything you love is covered in gay. all the great writers and musicians and artists you admire were queer as all hell hAH
Reblog if you would date a bisexual person
Like if you wouldn’t because there is “too much competition”
Trying to prove a point to an asshole
I learned this while watching Drunk History! I was shocked I had never hear of her before.
Not even on tumblr!
I’ve seen this on Drunk History too!! Drunk History on comedy central: a better source for American history than the education system.

#he made the character more than it was tbh #i love book draco but you don’t get to SEE his struggle so much as infer it based on harry’s rather limited POV and in the movies you get tom felton being amazing and deep and showing the downward spiral of someone who made himself incredibly vulnerable at his first meeting harry because he’s sure that all the hype his parents have been doing towards his family and his winning personality are going to garner him all the cool friends but then the years go on and everyone but slytherin hates him and then everyone but his small group of friends hates him and then he’s not even at school at all and he thinks his parents resent him for not succeeding in killing dumbledore and not helping their family get out under voldemort’s control even though those are both impossible requests for someone who is still underage you can see him try and make a decision of what’s right and what’s easy and once he starts thinking for himself you can see him leaning towards the former because none of this is what he signed up for because from the moment his school career began he’s been failing to live up to the expectations he’s set for himself so he rejects everyone around him as lesser and latches onto the one thing that his parents taught him that comes in handy and condescends to anyone who’ll listen and by the end you can see it eat away at him to the point where he’s all but begging harry to save him from dying because he’s once again failed supremely but this time he’s hit the actual rock bottom and his throat is raw from his constant need to resist swallowing his pride and all he wants is a fresh gasp of air and when his parents get him back he flees without looking back because as much as they’ve been worn out by the war draco’s been worn out by so much more in addition to that #and this all happens int he background with no more than a page of dialogue in each movie whereas the main characters have massive arcs and long lingering moments where you see them break down and build themselves back up and tom felton does it all with such cohesion and quiet brilliance that you look back and deem him a main character when he’s really been lost among the massive cast only getting a few words in edgewise and sometimes i wonder if he maybe relates to draco on a level that makes everything that much more rich and nuanced#harry potter #word vomit #spoilers #malfoys appreciation blog ‘∞

Ok you know what bothers me? Just one of the many, many things that bother me? How (of course, because they have to ALWAYS and ONLY be the bad guys) the Slytherins are the ones who join Umbridge’s fucked up inquisition shit. In reality? That is literally in direct conflict…
