The Great Gatsby vs Twilight

frumplejames:

One has a paper thin plot with weak characterisation and is full of unhealthy love arcs focussed on the possessiveness of two men vying for the affections of a single woman.

The other at least has the decency to make one dude a vampire and one dude a werewolf.

P.S. Being a literature snob is just as bad as claiming that the arts and humanities aren’t a worthy area of study. Both claims have always driven me to rage.

Also, all their characters are allegories. Just one is talking about the jazz age being evil, and the other is talking about sex being evil…

Both of which are basically the same thing.

it bothers me that Kansas and Arkansas are not pronounced the same

I’m from the UK and I have been pronouncing Arkansas as Ar-Kansas my whole life

For all my non-american friends, Arkansas is pronounced ark-an-saw

WHAT

Wait. WHAT? WHY!?

asking for straight pride is like asking for able bodied parking spaces

thats a really good comparison because there are about seventy able bodied parking spaces to one disabled and able bodied people still insist on using the ones that arent theirs

this is seriously a great post

Hey so, remember that UN school that all the displaced Gazans fled to for shelter?

Israel just bombed it.

Dozens dead so far, nobody is sure just how many.

What are you going to say now? That the bloody UNRWA was firing rockets at Israel?

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"

implying that magical children would know literally nothing outside of the wizarding worldimage

they have to write all those damn essays yet there’s no equivalent of an English class and it makes me cRaZY

*Resists the urge to write another rant on how terrible the general non-magical education of wizards is*

*Seriously it’s no wonder the Ministry is a mess they all have the reading age of a ten year old*
