I just want to apologize for neglecting this blog. I’m in Honors at college so I’m crazy stressed.
But you guys should submit stuff from Catching Fire!
Do you know what your Patronus is? Mine's an otter.
An owl :)
I’m very loud but also very observant (hence big eyes)
and in that moment, the entire movie theater burst into tears
i think this was the moment that made most of us despise umbridge more than voldemort
most of us?! don’t you mean ALL of us?? I don’t think even Voldemort liked this bitch!
No one likes Umbridge.
I heard, one time, a dementor kissed her and IT died
Voldemort committed genocide, but Umbridge dared to be female while she abused her power.
The point isn’t that Umbridge was worse than Voldemort; it’s that everyone hates her more. And I think it has nothing to do with her being a woman and everything with being the sort of cruel most of us have actually experienced.
I mean, look at Voldemort. He’s basically Wizard Hitler, which is, obviously, an incredibly terrible thing to be. But most people—especially the younger people in Harry Potter’s target audience—have not had their parents murdered by a xenophobic cult leader. Nor have they fought for their lives against giant snakes, been kidnapped for dark rituals, or watched numerous friends die in front of them. Voldemort’s crimes are numerous, but they’re distant and fantastical, like hearing about a serial killer on the news.
But they have had that one teacher who inflicts extra punishments just because they don’t like you. They’ve complained to parents and authorities only to be ignored. They’ve sat through pointless classes and been silenced when they criticize. Umbridge is that teacher we all hated because she made our lives miserable and we were powerless to stop her. And as we grow out of school, there are still people in positions of power who act like her. The manager who denies your schedule requests and penalizes you for invented infractions. That customer who complains to corporate because their scam didn’t work, and the corporate decision to listen to their story. Cops performing illegal searches because they know you don’t have any proof.
Yes, torturing and killing numerous people is worse than terrorizing a handful of schoolchildren, but Voldemort is the bad guy in a fairy tale. Umbridge is personal.
*drops the mic*
Voldemort is the villain we never hope to face.
Umbridge is the villain we face every day.

Things I will forever be upset about:
1. I don’t know what my Patronus is
2. I don’t know what Amortentia smells like to me
3. I don’t know what I’d see in the Mirror of Erised
4. I don’t know what my Boggart would be
5. I don’t know what uses I could find for the Room of Requirement.
6. I don’t know if I made Prefect or Head Girl.
"'We made some changes to Peeta’s narrative.' says Lawrence. 'We manned him up a little. And by the way it didn’t take a lot, just little choices to make here and there. The story doesn’t really change, his relationship with Katniss doesn’t change, he’s just a different kind of character.' For instance, in the book, the Hunger Games kicks off and Peeta is paralyzed when the other all-star tributes dive into the water. 'The option is for either me drowning or sitting there like a cat bating my paw into the water,' says Josh Hutcherson with a laugh. 'Either way the visual is horrible.' Easy fix: Let Peeta swim."
That first day we were trying to get Dan’s eyes to be green because that’s what they are in the book.
And Dan was wearing contact lenses.
He was allergic to them and after we made the decision to remove them, but the first day we tried to work through it.
So for the last scene when he’s saying good-bye to Hagrid you can see almost his eyes tearing and his eye a little bit swollen and it feels like he’s about to cry.
He probably was but he never complained.
We removed the contacts and he’s never had green eyes since.
The eye colour thing always use to annoy me but now I feel bad, poor daniel!
At least they tried.
thEY DID CARE
so there’s that
