Dumbledore, notorious for giving second chances Dumbledore, let Sirius rot in Azkaban for twelve years.
He must have known Sirius well due to his time in the Order, he must have known what James meant to Sirius. Dumbledore was a member of the freaking Wizengamot yet he didn’t fight the Ministry’s horrifying trial-optional policy.
This is a man who took back Death Eater!Snape at his word, shielded him from prison, and employed him at a school for children.
But he didn’t have a use for Sirius, so he didn’t care about him.
I got 99 problems with Dumbledore and his treatment of Sirius Black accounts for like 64 of them.
To be honest, Albus Dumbledore is one of the most disturbing, terrifying characters I’ve ever found in a book, because he thought he was a good guy and so did everyone else and the books don’t really challenge it either (given that Harry forgives him for everything he did), but when you look between the lines he was profoundly, profoundly immoral and unethical.
Pizza makes everything better.
heck yeah it does.
So the thing is, I’ve been working on this ‘graphic novel’ thing for so long that it kind of became this super personal thing that is deeply complicated and hard to explain but I literally just figured out how it ends and I don’t know what I’m doing anymore because on the one hand oh my god that would be perfect in so many ways but on the other hand I am just dfiugepbfsljdbvlsjdbfh how can I do that to my characters I am a bastard.
I have the most horrific headache to ever be inflicted on a human being and the power cord for my laptop has officially shat itself. it’s dead, Jim.
I have less than an hour of battery left.
so now I have to spend upwards of $70 on a new power cord tomorrow so I can write up my research essay on Hamlet and an assignment on gender studies terminology.
I’m actually really worried that nobody will ever fall in love with me.
It has to be this way…
that’s it. i’m declaring war on telstra.
