“It is real, isn’t it? It’s not a joke? Petunia says you’re lying to me. Petunia says there isn’t a Hogwarts. It is real, isn’t it?” “It’s real for us,” said Snape.

12. Have you ever been disappointed when your ship finally got together?
I am perpetually disappointed by Jack/Ianto, but that has more to do with terrible show management, shoddy writing, and wasted potential than the ship itself. Other than that, I don’t have very many ships that have actually become canon.
How about this: If we ever actually get definitive proof about whether David Bowie truly had affairs with all of the men in the 70s and 80s he purportedly had affairs with, either in confirmation or in denial, I will be disappointed at the dispelling of the myths.

I have three distinct moods when reading Mycroft-centric fanfiction:
Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone | Iconic Lines
I think one thing you can do to help your friends who are depressed is to reach out to them not in the spirit of helping, but in the spirit of liking them and wanting their company. “I’m here to help if you ever need me” is good to know, but hard to act on, especially when you’re in a dark place. Specific, ongoing, pleasure-based invitations are much easier to absorb. “I’m here. Let’s go to the movies. Or stay in and order takeout and watch some dumb TV.” “I’m having a party, it would be really great if you could come for a little while.” Ask them for help with things you know they are good at and like doing, so there is reciprocity and a way for them to contribute. “Will you come over Sunday and help me clear my closet of unfashionable and unflattering items? I trust your eye.” “Will you read this story I wrote and help me fix the dialogue?” “Want to make dinner together? You chop, I’ll assemble.” “I am going glasses shopping and I need another set of eyes.” Remind yourself why you like this person, and in the process, remind them that they are likable and worth your time and interest.
Talk to the parts of the person that aren’t being eaten by the depression. Make it as easy as possible to make and keep plans, if you have the emotional resources to be the initiator and to meet your friends a little more than halfway. If the person turns down a bunch of invitations in a row because (presumably) they don’t have the energy to be social, respect their autonomy by giving it a month or two and then try again. Keep the invitations simple; “Any chance we could have breakfast Saturday?” > “ARE YOU AVOIDING ME BECAUSE YOU’RE DEPRESSED OR BECAUSE YOU HATE ME I AM ONLY TRYING TO HELP YOU.” “I miss you and I want to see you” > “I’m worried about you.” A depressed person is going to have a shame spiral about how their shame is making them avoid you and how that’s giving them more shame, which is making them avoid you no matter what you do. No need for you to call attention to it. Just keep asking. “I want to see you” “Let’s do this thing.” “If you are feeling low, I understand, and I don’t want to impose on you, but I miss your face. Please come have coffee with me.” “Apology accepted. ApologIES accepted. So. Gelato and Outlander?”
P.S. A lot of people with depression and other mental illnesses have trouble making decisions or choosing from a bunch of different options. “Wanna get dinner at that pizza place on Tuesday night?” is a LOT easier to answer than “So wanna hang out sometime? What do you want to do?”
Alan Alda was so excited about winning an Emmy for writing in 1979 (pictured above) that he did a cartwheel down the aisle en route to the podium — and landed in Emmy’s pantheon in the process. This wasn’t his first victory. He’d been hailed as best comedy actor in 1974 and earned a statuette in 1977 for directing the M*A*S*H episode ”Dear Sigmund” (which also earned him a writing nom). Alda’s scripting success for the episode ”Inga” made him the only person in Emmy history to win for acting, directing, and writing.
