imagine being in ravenclaw and going back to your common room stumbling drunk in the middle of the night after a magical night of partying and having to answer a fucking riddle in order to get in your own goddamn bedroom
If you were really smart, you’d just get drunk in your common room like everyone else at school.
People under 21 reading this: don’t get drunk while you’re underage because you’ll get pregnant and die. Yeah, that’s it.
I’m sure Ravenclaw has their own House wine or beer that’s brewed in the common room. It’s applied Muggle Studies and Potions.
Tom Hiddleston reads from Shakespeare’s ‘thrilling’ first folio (x)
Speaking from the Chief Commoner’s Parlour, a mock Elizabethan room in the Old Library of the Guildhall in the City of London, actor Tom Hiddleston gazed in awe at the first folio edition of Shakespeare’sworks.
Hiddleston stars in the Donmar Warehouse’s new production of Coriolanus, as the warrior-politician. The cast includes Birgitte Hjort Sørensen as his wife Virgilia and Mark Gatiss as Menenaus. Also in the cast are Hadley Fraser as Aufidius and Deborah Findley as Coriolanus’s terrifying mother Volumnia.
"I find it personally very thrilling in quite a sort of nerdy way to sit and hold these pages which were printed 400 years ago." said Hiddleston.
Coriolanus is directed by Josie Rourke and opens at the Donmar Warehouse on December 6. Tickets:0844 871 7624;donmarwarehouse.com
Batgirl photos from this weekend, from Memphis Comic and Fantasy Con. Didn’t take a lot of photos at the con itself, but I did a white backdrop shoot with Chasing Photography afterwards and I love how they turned out.
Look, I love all kinds of cosplay, I love the the cosplay that someone made with crayons and clothespins on the way to the con, I love the kind where the person cosplaying looks absolutely nothing like the character, I love all of that.
But good lord, there are several young women playing Batgirl now that look SO MUCH LIKE HOW I SEE HER IN MY HEAD that I have to double check to make sure it’s not some kind of photo manipulation or cgi or magic spell or something.
