#KNEW WHAT WAS ON HER MIND AT ONCE   #LUCKY YOU   #HE’S AGGRAVATED BY HERMIONE’S EXPRESSION  #RN HE’S JUST ANNOYED BY HERMIONE EVEN EXISTING AND RAINING DOWN ON HIS PARADE AND HIS HIGH OF DOING WELL   #AND GINNY COMES UP VISIBILY ANGRY AND ALMOST AGGRESSIVELY AND HE’S LIKE   #OMG NOOOO BB NO I AIN’T DOIN ANYTHIN TOO SHADY I GOT IT UNDER CONTROL IT’S ALL GOOD   #I LIKE THAT HE SAYS HE   #BECAUSE YOOOO THIS IS JUST ONE YEAR AFTER   #GINNY GOT THROUGH TO HIM LIKE YO YOU’RE NOT THE ONLY ONE WHO’S SUFFERED INTIMATELY AT VOLDEMORT’S HANDS   #YOU LITTLE SHIT YOU BETTER NOT ERASE EVERYTHING I’VE BEEN THROUGH JUST SO YOU CAN FEEL SORRY FOR YOURSELF  #AND SHE BRINGS IT UP AGAIN HERE AND HARRY IMMEDIATELY REASSURES HER THAT NO I WON’T MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE TWICE   #I WON’T FORGET WHAT YOU’VE BEEN THROUGH   #HARRY AND GINNY   #I WON’T FORGET THE WAY EVERYONE ELSE SEEMED TO HAVE FORGOTTEN  

random but this is exactly why i cant ship hermione/harry. bc as much as harry loves hermione (like a sister he never had) he does lose his patience with her and gets snappy bc of her constant whinging and hissing (lmao harry himself describes it like that once in the book)

but with ginny he is a completely different person. hes always gentle and reassuring with her, esp when shes upset, even when they were way younger and harry had zero interest in her. he treats ginny and hermione remarkably differently, and always has. one only has to go back in the books to see evidence of this.

Cyber-Dys-Punk-Topia

“There was a place near an airport, Kowloon, when Hong Kong wasn’t China, but there had been a mistake, a long time ago, and that place, very small, many people, it still belonged to China. So there was no law there. An outlaw place. And more and more people crowded in; they built it up, higher. No rules, just building, just people living. Police wouldn’t go there. Drugs and whores and gambling. But people living, too. Factories, restaurants. A city. No laws.

William Gibson, Idoru

It was the most densely populated place on Earth for most of the 20th century, where a room cost the equivalent of US$6 per month in high rise buildings that belonged to no country. In this urban enclave, “a historical accident”, law had no place. Drug dealers, pimps and prostitutes lived and worked alongside kindergartens, and residents walked the narrow alleys with umbrellas to shield themselves from the endless, constant dripping of makeshift water pipes above….

Kowloon ‘Walled’ City lost its wall during the Second World War when Japan invaded and razed the walls for materials to expand the nearby airport. When Japan surrendered, claims of sovereignty over Kowloon finally came to a head between the Chinese and the British. Perhaps to avoid triggering yet another conflict in the wake of a world war, both countries wiped their hands of the burgeoning territory.

And then came the refugees, the squatters, the outlaws. The uncontrolled building of 300 interconnected towers crammed into a seven-acre plot of land had begun and by 1990, Kowloon was home to more than 50,000 inhabitants….

Despite earning its Cantonese nickname, “City of Darkness”, amazingly, many of Kowloon’s residents liked living there. And even with its lack of basic amenities such as sanitation, safety and even sunlight, it’s reported that many have fond memories of the friendly tight-knit community that was “poor but happy”.

“People who lived there were always loyal to each other. In the Walled City, the sunshine always followed the rain,” a former resident told the South China Morning Post….

Today all that remains of Kowloon is a bronze small-scale model of the labyrinth in the middle a public park where it once stood.

This isn’t to say places like Kowloon Walled City no longer exist in Hong Kong….

No Fin Left in the Shark Trade

Recent figures taken by WWF show that there has been almost a 90 percent drop in the trade of shark fins from Hong Kong to mainland China in the last year. The pressure from environmental groups holding protests against shark fin traders and consumers has caused much of the decrease. One example of their success is getting restaurants and hotels serving shark fin soup to strike it off of their menus.

JK Rowling's bestselling boy wizard is due for a makeover, with the launch of award-winning illustrator Jim Kay's fully-illustrated edition of Harry Potter in 2015.

The first in the series, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, is slated for publication in September 2015, and publisher Bloomsbury will release each of the subsequent titles annually, re-creating the original publishing schedule which started in London in 1997, and so successfully developed readers as they, and Harry and friends, grew older together.

Illustrator Kay has reimagined Harry for a new generation of readers, in a style that nods to Daniel Radcliffe’s portrayal of the boy wizard in the film versions of the novels, and captures the character of Harry in the books.”
