That’s all that’s planned so far :) If you have suggestions for series that aren’t super long (or a good one-off book!) feel free to comment. 😁👍
Discworld is only 41 books, Hilly. 😁🤣
manchester: gays. you will probably get mugged, way better than london though, also known as madchester, because best nightlife and britpop
liverpool: like manchester, but less gay. you will definitely get mugged. notorious for stealing wheels
newcastle: probably quite good for canadians as exists in permafrost and has never left the 90s.
leeds: it’s a lot cheaper than london
bradford: leeds but awful
nottingham: gun death capital of the uk!
derby: intense rivalry with nottingham, literally no one else in the country or world gives any fucks about this.
hull: violently resist anyone who attempts to take you here
leicester: i’m not sure this is a real place
york: this is an illustration from the top of a christmas biscuit assortment
brighton & hove: more gays. is only a pretend city. mild to moderate chance of mugging. contains some deeply annoying hippies. basically if san francisco was british.
portsmouth: there is literally nothing here.
southampton: exactly the same as portsmouth but smells of off milk
bristol: you have a 1 in 10 chance of ending up in a bbc recording. everyone sounds like a farmer or bob marley.
cardiff: you have a 1 in 5 chance of ending up in a bbc recording, and a 1 in 3 chance of being glassed.
plymouth: post apocalyptic wind tunnel full of drunk sailors pissing on depressed hookers. do not enter.
penzance: everyone here is from london now.
london: no one from london is actually from london and even breathing is expensive.
cambridge: windy and full of equal amounts of homeless drug addicts and public schoolboys. the junkies are nicer.
oxford: same number of cunts as cambridge but easier to escape from due to all-night bus to london
edinburgh: a goth turned into a city. basically london but slightly more scottish.
glasgow: it is impossible to tell whether people are angry or happy.
aberdeen: las vegas at the point when vegas starts crying uncontrollably
belfast: do not order “an irish car bomb” OR “a black and tan” here.
wolverhampton: really, really don’t.
norwich: count people’s fingers. mutations walk here.
coventry: like plymouth, bombed flat in ww2. like plymouth, failed to take the hint. like plymouth: do not alight here.
sheffield: everyone talks like sean bean or alex turner, still better than london
We can be both happy and angry at the same time, you know…
Look if I’m not allowed that level of emotional complexity I don’t see why you lot are
help I’m having emotions about a cartoon antidepressant trying to be useful
DID YOU GUYS SERIOUSLY GIF AN ABILIFY COMMERCIAL
yes but look at it, it cares about her and just wants to help her be able to function. It’s like “I know you’re sad. here, I’ll help you.”
LIKE OKAY THOUGH can I explain why this is exceedingly brilliant?? Because when anti-depressants work right, that’s what they DO. They don’t make you happy or emotionless or unhealthy in any way, they make you FUNCTIONAL. They make it so that a depressed person who can barely get out of bed can start to support themselves again and more importantly, start to THINK for themselves again without the permeating presence of depression.
Depression is a cyclical disease, that tells you to think a certain way, and, because you’re depressed, you generally believe it, and then things get worse and worse. The ONLY thing anti-depressants do is to STOP that cycle in its tracks!! Which is something to be ecstatic about and celebrated, even if you don’t realize it at the time, because when you’re depressed, getting out of bed is climbing Mount Everest. Antidepressants help stop that cycle so that one day soon, getting out of bed can JUST be getting out of bed. They don’t even expedite the recovery process in most cases, they just make recovery POSSIBLE IN THE FIRST PLACE. So this little guy is portrayed with a fuckton more accuracy than I ever expected from a commercial.
It’s back and adorable
Don’t forget your meds today.
want twice daily reminders to take your medications?
the one line from the lotr films that really gets me is faramir’s ‘the shire must truly be a great realm, master gamgee, where gardeners are held in high honor’. not soldiers, not kings, not wizards. gardeners. because a country where gardeners are beloved is a country without war, with peace, and that is what the series repeatedly shows we are meant to aspire to.

Let’s talk about the Hogwarts professors!!
Reblog or comment with your favorite headcanons about the Hogwarts staff.
Here’s one of mine: McGonagall did not quite when the Potters and Granger-Weasleys enrolled at Hogwarts. McGonagall had lived through the Marauders, the twins, the Golden trio’s antics, Dumbledore’s shenanigans and TWO Wizarding wars. When they enrolled, she simply grabbed the nearest alcoholic drink, downed it, and looked straight ahead with a dead look in her eyes that said “Bring it”.
Oh, I forgot this one!
They never did fix the curse on the Defense professor post. McGonagall defanged it somewhat by making it officially a rolling appointment, so nobody was intended to be there for more than a year, and also started quietly warning people that it was cursed before they accepted a position–after all, if you can’t handle a cursed job for one year, are you really qualified to be Defense professor?
She did talk Harry into taking it for a year in the late aughts. He enjoyed teaching the NEWT classes (though he got in a bit of trouble for teaching them the Unforgiveables). The third-years taking a required class, not so much. He also spent a certain amount of time nostalgically sneaking around the corridors under the invisibility cloak, on a mission from McGonagall to try to fix the curse. It didn’t work.
What if you trick the curse by switching out professors? Say you hire three professors, but each one is there once every three years. So no one is officially on for more than a year. But you also only ever hire three professors.
Oh, I like this! Because that is 100% an idea that Voldemort would never think of.
I mean. You’re still cursed, and have to be real careful. But you’re not actually doomed or anything.
It does also mirror the short term contract hell of UK academia which is a kind of torture I’m sure was unintentional on Tom’s part but now has me wondering…

i enjoy that every single human’s reaction to penguin is unrestrained delight
And penguins lack large terrestrial predators, so their reaction to humans tends to be, “HELLO STRANGE GIANT PENGUINS, WHAT ARE YOU DOING? DO YOU HAVE ANY FISH?”
I will reblog this on my deathbed.
Please let him science 🐧
