She was half his family.
Finnick you are a fucking triumph.
Fun fact: tennant forgot his line in this scene and said this instead
Elsa on your dash.
Some stupid stuff referring to this idea I had where you turn into different species of monsters when you hit puberty tehehehehe
sorry my handwritting’s pretty ugly here
Oh no but can you imagine this
OMG THIS IS GOLD THIS IS AMAZING PAHAAHAHAH I JUST CAN’T
can you imagine if she was like the punk/bad dark girl of the shcool jsdkfhdkjg
oh man this is glorious. If you’re ok with it, I’m totally making place for this girl in my (sort of) story !
Oh wow, I’m already in love with this concept. Especially how all of the teens look spotty and only partially monstrous. Especially the ginger werewolf with his one furry arm!
Would this mean that adults are fully-formed monsters in this? Oh gosh, now I’m imagining mommy and daddy vampires taking their kids to parks on outings sitting in the shade to enjoy picnics while their pre-pubescent children run and giggle in the sunshine, manticore daddies giving human kids piggy-back rides, and ghost mommies playing peek-a-boo with babies.
Zomg the hijabi gorgon tho

The Slytherins of the Marauder Era
Olivia, my eldest daughter, caught measles when she was seven years old. As the illness took its usual course I can remember reading to her often in bed and not feeling particularly alarmed about it. Then one morning, when she was well on the road to recovery, I was sitting on her bed showing her how to fashion little animals out of coloured pipe-cleaners, and when it came to her turn to make one herself, I noticed that her fingers and her mind were not working together and she couldn’t do anything.
“Are you feeling all right?” I asked her.
“I feel all sleepy, ” she said.
In an hour, she was unconscious. In twelve hours she was dead.
The measles had turned into a terrible thing called measles encephalitis and there was nothing the doctors could do to save her.
That was twenty-four years ago in 1962, but even now, if a child with measles happens to develop the same deadly reaction from measles as Olivia did, there would still be nothing the doctors could do to help her.
On the other hand, there is today something that parents can do to make sure that this sort of tragedy does not happen to a child of theirs. They can insist that their child is immunised against measles. I was unable to do that for Olivia in 1962 because in those days a reliable measles vaccine had not been discovered. Today a good and safe vaccine is available to every family and all you have to do is to ask your doctor to administer it.
It is not yet generally accepted that measles can be a dangerous illness.
Believe me, it is. In my opinion parents who now refuse to have their children immunised are putting the lives of those children at risk.
In America, where measles immunisation is compulsory, measles like smallpox, has been virtually wiped out.
Here in Britain, because so many parents refuse, either out of obstinacy or ignorance or fear, to allow their children to be immunised, we still have a hundred thousand cases of measles every year.
Out of those, more than 10,000 will suffer side effects of one kind or another.
At least 10,000 will develop ear or chest infections.
About 20 will die.
LET THAT SINK IN.
Every year around 20 children will die in Britain from measles.
So what about the risks that your children will run from being immunised?
They are almost non-existent. Listen to this. In a district of around 300,000 people, there will be only one child every 250 years who will develop serious side effects from measles immunisation! That is about a million to one chance. I should think there would be more chance of your child choking to death on a chocolate bar than of becoming seriously ill from a measles immunisation.
So what on earth are you worrying about?
It really is almost a crime to allow your child to go unimmunised.
Roald Dahl, 1986
NINETEEN EIGHTY SIX.
roald dahl was calling out the anti-vaccination movement as self indulgent bullshit //thirty god damn years ago//.
And this is only in recent history. I can’t imagine the numbers if we had data all the way back to 1986.
