My friend and classmate Maia Scott got invited to be valedictorian speaker for our graduating class of 2014 at CIIS. Check out just how awesomely artistic and funny she is as she relates how she reconciled her disability with art and community. She made us cry!!!
some muggleborn like “i want to be an astronaut when i grow up!”
wizard kids like “wtf is an astronaut”
"oh you know…the people who go to the moon"
oh for crying out loud they have astronomy at hogwarts these poor kids know how many moons every single planet has they have exams in the astronomy tower after midnight looking through telescopes and y’all thinking they dont know the moon is a place like this is the dumbest possible example of bad hogwarts subjects you could have chosen this dumb website with its embarrassing hogwarts knowledge wizards probably know more about the solar system than you do
actually is there canonical evidence pointing to the wizarding world being dubious about people being sent to the moon, or is that fanon?
for all we know they already figured out the moon-landing thing long before muggles did.
I may have taught this spider to knit.
I was finishing the last 20 rows at the park, when this little spider wandered over to me, It climbed up my knitting bag, and walked all up and down the piece, then climbed onto my hand and watched me for a couple rows.
After the second row it started waving it’s front four legs as if to get my attention. Once I was looking at it, it started pulling silk from its spinneret, and fiddling with it. I don’t know if it was knitting or purling as it was quite small scale, but every few seconds it would stop and look up at me to see if I was still watching. After a little bit I moved it to one of the vines overhanging the archway I was sitting in, and it went about its business.
This wasn’t the only unusual thing that happened at the park today, but it was the most unusual.
Maybe it thought you were a spider
I’m gonna level with you that’s the fucking cutest shit I have ever fucking heard of okay I want a little spider that knits not sits menacingly above my bed at night threatening to fall into my mouth.
