crying b/c this is probably the first time grant ward has ever told someone he loves them #i mean this was how he knows how to say it that his feelings are ‘real’ and as he lay dying he called her name #and started to say the actual words #and her response to him is violent which is what he is used to and i think skye realized this when he was suffering #like it clicked for her and she refused to be another abuser she refused to let him die #she showed him the kindness he’s never been shown his whole life until the team and she did it while knowing the truth about who he was #which is important because when he realizes he’s just another robot like peterson that he means nothing that kindness that hope is what #is going to make him turn his back on garrett once and for all walk away from his abuser and become his own man and redeem himself #and become worthy of the girl of the family of the team of everything his life can be #and i think it’s important to note he let her walk away at the diner and here #he never threatens her even when he handcuffs her it’s more like a ‘sweetheart i’m doing this so you will stop wailing on me’ #he takes her abuse he refuses to harm her #physically at least because he doesn’t understand how he’s hurting her emotionally because he is wired differently thanks to garrett (via snarkysweetness)

#I WAS WAITING FOR THIS GIFSET#LET’S TALK#fitz rarely makes physical contact#the only time i can think of is when he’s trying to stop her from talking when may is in the room#jemma however does touch him in times of comfort or great importance#these two instances#and when he’s about to go on the mission with ward#jemma knows that touching him won’t compromise her#no matter if she feels romantic towards him or not#she doesn’t mind within these contexts#fitz never touches her#because fitz is scared#fitz is afraid of her skin and her touch and her presence#because it might totally overwhelm him#and he’d be found out#so when she does touch him#it’s a shock to his system#and he’s totally lost for a moment

1. City Lights Bookstore in San Francisco

Book appeal: City Lights was founded by poet Lawrence Ferlinghetti, so it makes sense that its entire second floor is a dedicated poetry space. But throughout the store there are chairs strategically placed so customers can not only enjoy the natural light, but take their time in choosing a title to bring home.

2. Word on the Water in London

Book appeal: This bookstore is on a barge, for starters. You can hop aboard to browse through its selection (and mingle with the owner’s cats), or stay on the mainland to see their poetry readings and live music, which happen on the roof of the barge.

3. Boekhandel Dominicanen in Maastricht, Netherlands

Book appeal: Browsing books in a 700-year-old church is an experience you’ll only have at Boekhandel Dominicanen. There’s a mix of Gothic architecture and modern furniture to enjoy, along with all of the titles, of course.

4. The Livraria Cultura in São Paulo, Brazil

Book appeal: Not only is this the largest bookstore in Brazil, but it’s also a borderline playground for kids. There are massive dragon statues to play on, areas to lounge, and four stories of pure book-filled aisles to wander through.

5. Libreria Acqua Alta in Venice, Italy

Book appeal: This bookstore is easily one of the most memorable and quirky places in Venice. The shop itself is small, and filled with books that fall out of gondolas, bathtubs, and small boats. You can dip your feet in the canal as you read, or climb a set of steps entirely made of old books.

6. Librería El Ateneo in Buenos Aires

Book appeal: This former theater turned bookstore is filled with all sorts of stunning architectural details, like Italian ceiling frescoes, rich red curtains, and ornate sculptures. Plus, there’s live piano music playing in the background while you browse each section.

7. Cook & Book in Brussels

Book appeal: Cook & Book is part bookstore, part café, and totally worth the visit. The shop is divided into nine rooms, and each room contains a different section (think music, fiction, children’s, travel, graphic novels, etc.). But best of all is that each section has its own special design and looks totally unique from the other rooms. There’s even an English room that looks a bit like a pub.

8. Brattle Book Shop in Boston

Book appeal: Founded in 1825, the Brattle Book Shop is one of the largest antiquarian book shops in the country. There are unique outdoor bookstalls, as well as three levels of titles to browse through.

9. Livraria Lello in Porto, Portugal

Book appeal: If you blink you’d miss the unassuming exterior of Livraria Lello. But inside, it’s filled with rich dark wood and a sweeping staircase that leads to a second floor of stained glass and floor to ceiling bookshelves. This is one of Portugal’s oldest bookstores and completely worth the visit.

10. Librairie Ptyx in Brussels

Book appeal: Even before you walk through the doors, it’s not hard to see that the Librairie Ptyx is a monument to all things art. Inside, titles are carefully curated, and the homages to famous writers covers the walls.

11. The Last Bookstore in Downtown Los Angeles

Book appeal: Aside from the vaulted ceilings and enormous pillars that fill this large space, stepping inside The Last Bookstore will make you feel like you’ve entered another world. There’s a mix of old and used books, and even an upstairs section where everything is just $1.

12. Cafebrería El Péndulo in Mexico City

Book appeal: Anywhere where they allow you to eat, drink mojitos, and read is pretty fantastic, in my opinion. Plus Cafebrería El Péndulo also offers outdoor seating, and enough natural light and vegetation to make you feel like you’re not in a bookstore at all.

13. Atlantis Books in Santorini, Greece

Book appeal: Stepping into Atlantis Books is a bit like going into a cave, but one filled with tons of character! There are notes and messages written all over the walls, and they host food festivals, film festivals, and book signings regularly.

14. Powell’s Books in Portland, Oregon

Book appeal: Powell’s is ENORMOUS. That’s because it was formerly a car dealership that has become a Portland landmark. If you ever feel like indie bookstores are flailing, walk through the rows of books while sipping coffee from their cafe and just remember that being a book lover is alive and well in Portland.

15. Librairie Avant-Garde in Nanjing, China

Book appeal: Can you spot the yellow stripe down the center of the book rows? That’s because Librairie Avant-Garde is a former garage converted into a bookstore. Pretty neat, but you’ll have to find parking elsewhere!

16. Dickson Street Bookshop in Fayetteville, Arkansas

Book appeal: Specializing in out of print and rare books, you’ll step off the main Fayetteville drag into this cozy shop filled with rows and rows of books old and new. The rare and more leather-bound options are right up front and absolutely stunning, while if you head into the back you can find anything from Southern cookbooks to music biographies.

17. Books Actually in Tiong Bahru, Singapore

Book appeal: This shop is a mix of quirky and modern, like the ultimate Etsy store filled with indie titles, local authors, and plenty of knickknacks to bring home. It’s small, but intimate, and readings are often hosted here.

"Luna had decorated her bedroom ceiling with five beautifully painted faces: Harry, Ron, Hermione, Ginny, and Neville. They were not moving as the portraits at Hogwarts moved, but there was a certain magic about them all the same; Harry thought they breathed. What appeared to be fine golden chains wove around the pictures, linking them together, but after examining them for a minute or so, Harry realized that the chains were actually one word, repeated a thousand times in golden ink: friends…friends…friends…friends… Harry felt a great rush of affection for Luna" — Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

OKAY NO LET ME EXPLAIN YOU A THING.

My ENTIRE CHILDHOOD, this is what I imagined Hermione looked like. A curly haired girl of color who looked something like me, who had a hard time making friends like me because she was intelligent and sometimes she thought too much and didn’t have a problem losing herself in a book. I even ARGUED, tooth and nail with the other students in my class about my headcanon and questioned why she COULDN’T look like me, what was wrong with her looking like me, and why they felt she HAD to be white.

When I found out she wasn’t thanks to the movies, there was a kind of disconnect from her character, and the way I closed that disconnect was to ignore canon and keep picturing her as someone like me. I stopped talking about my headcanon to avoid arguments and name calling and teasing, but I never ever let go of the idea of a POC Hermione.

So to the artist, THANK YOU FOR DRAWING MY HERMIONE.
