re reading again….HERE U ARE
I really like how funny this story is. And how their relationship is just the best.
It’s a funny experience, reading a story that you have read once before. In the beginning, you don’t remember much of what happens, if anything at all. But, as the story goes on, you start remembering things.
Things like, Oh, she dies young. They fall out, but make up again. He becomes a medic sooner or later. And… he dies too - but I can’t remember when.
Even if you know that things are going to happen, you still experience them as fully as you did before. What happens is no longer unexpected, but it still moves you.
You cry as characters die. You sit on the edge of your seat waiting for characters to stop arguing and make up. You are filled with joy at characters’ successes and positive choices!
Even if you know what happens is going to happen, it still has meaning when it does.
Notes: I am re-reading the Harry Potter crossover with Naruto, Breathe (Don’t Falter) by silenceia on AO3. It is really very good!
I took 3 days off tumblr …
Because I rediscovered an old fanfic and got sucked in! 😂
Also tomorrow is my birthday ✨ and I have to work 😭
The growing list of books that I want to read but haven’t yet:
Me, re reading a book I’ve read several times before… again:
I’m curious to hear from fellow bookblrs: What books/series do you crave re-reading the most? Are those books genuinely your faves or just books you crave re-reading?
I judge which books are my faves by how much I crave re-reading them, and recently I’ve been wondering if this is actually an accurate measure or if it’s just a mood thing…..

Oh to be a wealthy young man, fond of flowers, sitting in my garden smoking weed on a very good morning. No notion of adventures, such nasty, disturbing, uncomfortable things that make you late for dinner.
Having a hard time picking up new book to read .. everything is just too depressing .. just like this one

Remember that time Sam had enough of everyone’s bullshit and sent all his bird friends to shit on them. What a legend.

SOMEONE HOLD ME I AM DYING
I am re-reading the stories and adventures of Sherlock Holmes, and I am still fascinated by its story. I still think that Holmes is an overly confident and obnoxious detective - but all for the right reasons. I still feel for Watson, who is constantly a pushover and who can’t seem to detach himself from Holmes because that’s the only adventure he actually gets from his lonesome and normal life.
But most of all, The Woman - Irene Adler, still thrills me. Every time I read about her, it sends shiver on my nape down to my back. It’s a eerie feeling to have towards a character of a book. When Holmes describes her, I would dare say she’s the epitome of every man’s desire and every woman’s ambition. She is much like my wife in some sense. Her wit is unparalleled and her cunning is unquestionable.
She is everything and more. The only other person who can truly outwit the greatest detective of all time.

Re-reading the Prisoner of Azkaban
So Snape is Legit Terrible huh?
He bullies Neville so bad that a CHILD’S worst fear is his teacher. Not failing a class or a bad scolding, but he is terrified of the teacher himself.
He almost posion’s Trevor. Was going to. To teach neville a lesson about making a bad potion to learn how to follow better instructions. And then when the potion worked, thanks to Hermione, he took points off gryffindor because he COULDNT poison someones pet.
He takes over the DADA class and sets them the essay on Werewolves hoping someone will figure out Lupin’s secret because he swore not to tell. But if somoen figures it out then it wouldn’t be his fault. And the essay was specifically to IDENTIFY and KILL. How dangerous is that? If they had figured it out, and maybe panicked right, and thought he was dangerous. What if they used this new knowledge and tried to kill Lupin to “protect” themselves? Lupin wouldn’t have been able to defend himself properly, he’d new fight back against a student. And if he’d been killed Dumbledore could hardly blame a terror stricken teenager right? Like jesus. Snape is mad at what Sirius did when he was a teenager. But thinks what he is doing, as an ADULT to an INNOCENT man is okay?
Then in the shrieking shack when he confronts Sirius. He starts talking all this shit. And Harry yells at him and Snape says that he should have let Black kill him.
He a full grown adult teacher, told a teenage student that he should have let a perceived convicted murderer kill him, because he mouthed off to him? Jesus. Christ. Are you joking me? Even if you hated his father can you calm down a second my dude? That’s a bit of an over reaction.
Then you wanted to be present when the Dementor’s kissed the life out of Sirius even after they explained to you what happened and you having been a follower of Voldemort should know anything is possible just don’t wanna listen. You wanted to see him suffer. You wanted to see him die. And it wasn’t even because you blamed him for Lily’s death. That would have at least made sense. Nah, all you cared about was how they picked on you in school. Was in nice? No, of course not. But should you delight in the murder of him so much? No. No you shouldn’t. Especially because you became a worse bully. Because you bully CHILDREN. Children under your control.
And then and then, when Sirius wasn’t killed, he was so mad at SIRIUS escaping, he told everyone about LUPIN being a werewolf. He couldn’t hurt one of them. So he settled for the other. What the fuck? Lupin didn’t do anything wrong. The whole year, he’d been nice, thanking him for the potions. Cordial to him when he saw him. Snape was always hostile and nasty from the beginning. He forced Lupin out because of anger, pettiness, jealousy and spite.
When I first read this I was 13 and I hated Snape. Then the 7th book happened and we were all like “Oh maybe we were wrong about him this whole time!” Plus the whole wanting to always trust Dumbledore’s judgement thing.
But reading it again as a 30 year old and I’m like. Nah. There is so much that’s unneseccary about what he is doing. He’s a dick and I stand by my 13 year old self. She was a good judge of character and I should have listened to her initial opinion.
How could I forget, he also screams at Hermione MULTIPLE times and called her an Insufferable know it all. Prompting Ron to the famous quote:
“You asked us a question and she knows the answer! Why ask if you don’t want to be told?”
He embarrasses Hermione about how smart she is by telling her she’s a show off and she is a know it all and calling her out when she raises her hand. Or ignoring her when she tries to answer a question. Even if she were being a bit much, if it was Malfoy acting that way he wouldn’t call him a know it all. He finds reasons to be nasty to anyone im Gryffindor for seemingly no reason at all. But funnily enough they’re all friends of Harry. So is he punishing them because of that? No matter the reason, all these children, in ALL the house are under your care. If you can’t treat them nicely and teach them all equally, then stop being a fucking teacher.
I’ve been both a Harry and a Hermione type through my time in school from grade 1 to 12. And I’ve had teachers annoyed with me for both my laziness at not doing my work. And my over eagerness and over talking or asking questions and running my mouth a mile a minute. And I’ve never had a teacher treat me the way Snape treats Hermione or Neville or any of his Gryffindor kids. Most times they would talk to me after class. But they didn’t embarrass me in the middle of the class in front of everyone.
He had no right to talk to Hermione like that. If she was being over eager, he should have told her that he wanted to give the other students a chance to answer the questions. He wanted to see who ELSE besides her was paying attention. Not call her a know it all because he wanted to feel superior. He wanted the whole class silent. He doesn’t want them to know the answers. Because then he can tell them how behind and misprepared they are. He can’t feel superior if Hermione keeps interrupting his “you know nothing” speech, with knowing stuff.
The worst part is. He was really smart in school too. So he’s punishing her for shit he himself was praised for when he was a kid. Fuck off.
Sorry. Woke up and realized I left that little gem out. It was 5 am when I wrote it, forgive me.
