the magic begins: Favourite Relationships (1/3) - The Golden Trio
A warmth was spreading through Harry that had nothing to do with the sunlight; a tight obstruction in his chest seemed to be dissolving. The mere fact that they were still there on either side of him, speaking bracing words of comfort, was worth more than he could ever tell them.

round up the posse, boys, we found us a NERD
I wanted to share with you our Serbian traditional way of dying Easter eggs - no artificial colors or dyes needed.
Put any leaves you like on the surface of the egg and carefully place them in a stocking. Boil these eggs in water full of onion skins. The result are beautiful, earthly colors and interesting patterns.

I think I like this as much as I like the Gentileschi Judith Slaying Holofernes but for different reasons. Gentileschi’s Judith is focused in the moment, entirely concentrating on what she’s having to do. It’s a snapshot of the event itself. You can see in her forearms how much physical force is involved in cutting off the asshole’s head. She is doing a job that needs to be done, and there’s no gloating joy in her and no fainting disgust: she’s leaning out of the way of the blood and just getting on with it, because some monsters should not walk under the open sky.
This Judith has done the deed, and presumably changed out of her bloody outfit afterward—and there is no remorse or guilt whatsoever in her, no acknowledgment that ladies aren’t supposed to seduce generals and then cut off their heads in their tents; she has done it regardless of personal cost and she would do it again, and this is a triumphal portrait. She has the sword in one hand and the head by its hair in the other, and she is terrifying in her quiet competence.
I imagine that when this painting was first presented a large number of the dudes present kind of swallowed hard and fought an urge to back away, because this woman is that most frightening thing to a certain type of man: capable and unapologetic about it. The look in her eyes says: I will do what must be done, and if that means violence, then violence is what you will receive.
there’s that slight lift of the eyebrow, as if someone off camera just went, “dude, that chick is holding a guy’s severed head!” and she’s like, “are we gonna have a problem here?”
hint: the correct answer is NO MA’AM.
I was born to serve you Arthur. And I’m proud of that. And I wouldn’t change a thing.
I was a coward! I was weak! I wouldn’t kill a dragon!
