if i was harry, i would have stuck a letter down the front of my pants and ran out on the front lawn bc

  1. the dursleys aren’t gonna chase me and cause a scene, it’d upset their pristine reputation
  2. if they DID chase me out, they’d have to put their hand down my pants to get to the letter and i’d just start screaming STRANGER DANGER STRANGER DANGER and fuck up their repuation for real

you would kill voldemort in first year at that rate

Attention all theatre lovers!


So I’m starting research for my dissertation soon and my subject is going to be (contemporary) theatre. Basically like/reblog this if you enjoy/attend the theatre for your own pleasure, whether they be plays, musicals, opera or ballet. Thanks!
