You wanna talk Pacific Rim characters growing up with Harry Potter?

Stacker Pentecost was an eleven year old boy growing up in London when Philosopher’s Stone was first released. 

He literally grew up with the series.  Read one as they were released every year just before his own school year started up through age 14, waited anxiously through the long hiatus between Goblet of Fire in 2000 and Order of the Pheonix in 2003 (maybe followed along in fandom for a while in between, was there for the great Cassie Clare plagiarism drama and everything) only to cry and rage at Sirius’s death, betrayed, when OotP did finally come out (as me and all my friends who were also that age did). 

But that’s also the year we meet Luna (also his sister’s name), and the bright spark of heroism and faithfulness and goodness that burns so bright at the heart of the character reminds him so much of his own Luna that he has a hard time reading it to Mako, later, stays up long after she’s fallen asleep on those nights, hands brushing along the worn spine of the book, remembering another little girl he once shared the magic of Hogwarts with, back when he was much littler, himself.

And if you tell me that when he stepped out of his Jaeger, looked down, and saw this dark-haired little girl with all that she’d ever known and loved ripped away from her by evil, he didn’t at least flash briefly back to the boy he’d grown up with who’d suffered much the same, who’d been lost until he looked up with hope and wonder into the eyes of a literal half-giant stranger who came to be as much of a father if not more than any of the other protective figures in his life, then I will tell you that you are wrong.

oh my god i am going to cry

There’s nothing i hate in fiction more than the bullshit lesson they force down our throats about ‘forgiving bullies” and ‘being the better person’.

Trans Guys | Bind Kinder 
The use of ace bandages for binding is not only extremely uncomfortable, its dangerous. Ace bandages contract around the ribcage, not allowing your ribcage to expand as you breathe, furthermore, putting you at risk for deformed ribs from prolonged use, as well as broken rib bones. Always use a binder, which is specifically designed for binding and shaping the chest. Can’t afford a binder? contact Aydian Dowling at point5ccclothing@gmail.com and get a binder for nothing more than the cost of shipping.

The point of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

the point of pouring a shit ton of ice water over yourself is because when one suffers from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) one of the affects the disease has is a numbness throughout the body, as well as struggling to breathe, and both these are meant to temporarily happen when doused in freezing water. It’s to raise awareness of what ALS feels like and encourage donations towards research and cures.
