Seattle voted down a measure to assist in the funding of it’s public transportation. And with the raw numbers given in the Seattle Times today, an aspect of the numbers bothered me: the number of people voting against the measure was approximately 201,000. The thing is…in the same article, the average ridership of King County Metro per day is approximately 400,000. This bothers me quite a bit, but as I am on a work break I cannot say much at the moment. But let it be known that I am *not* amused by it.
a ravenclaw inventing a spell like “ive enchanted this quill so that one dip in an inkwell and it will be able to draw from that inkwell until its out! no redipping!” and their muggle born friend just
"a…pen.you literally just used magic to make a pen"
And then the muggleborn gives them a normal pen and they’re just like “how does it workOH MY MERLIN IT CLICKS” and they just spend the whole class clicking their pen

=== ABANDONED WORLD WAR II ORPHANAGE ===
Commissioned in 1866 by an aristocratic family fleeing the French revolution, it would stay in their hands until World War II when it was nationalized. Later it would serve for decades as an orphanage, earning it the nickname “Chateau de Noisy.” The children left the home in 1980 and it has sat untouched and abandoned since 1991.

I have never, in my whole entire life, ever heard a conversation more deserving of the title “Diva Qween Words of Sheer Fierce and Fabulous Earth-Shattering and Heart-Piercing Perfection from the Baddest Boss Bitch in the Whole Motherfucking Game” than this dialogue right here.
"who’s still mulling it over"
I really want to agree with you except that’s not what this speech did. This speech sounds epic boss wordage of the year, but read it again. It’s a tragedy.
This speech establishes Azula as being childish, reckless, and willfully blind to the point that she’d wreck a ship by forcing sailors to take her orders regardless of their feasability in reality. ((tides. you do not fuck with tides. tides always win. tides are eternal and you are tiny tiny humans on a tiny tiny bucket. boats cannot be bullied and the ocean cannot be bullied. if you try to play chicken with the tides, you smash your vessel on the rocks or run aground or sink. the ocean is god and you are powerless to it.))
The reason Azula went mad in the third season is that her father and his court had emotionally abused her while simultaneously building up a superiority complex in her that rendered her incapable of seeing reality. A person who says that her commands are more important than the tides cannot rule a ship, an army, or a nation.
This looks like a badass boss speech, but it’s not.
It’s a mad king’s speech.
#and she pays for it#she pays for that arrogance#horribly and unfairly#because Ozai did that to her#when she’s only a child#this speech was not a BAMF moment#it was a bright red signal light#that you’re going to run aground#and she did#she crashed#and lost#because of this attitude
