miraniel:

In all other cases except the Triwizard cup, portkeys only go one way at one specific time. Touching them again does not activate them to return to their place of origin. Also, when Harry grabs the cup a second time, it does not return him to the middle of the maze. It takes him to the entrance of the maze, in front of everyone.

Therefore, when Crouch Jr. (as Moody) bewitched the cup, he planned to have it take anyone who touched it first to the graveyard, then to the front of the maze.The cup was probably supposed to be a portkey to take the winner to the front of the maze anyway, so they wouldn’t have to try to fight their way out again.

Voldemort obviously planned to kill Harry. He had to. That was the whole point; to kill Harry in front of all his Death Eaters, all the ones who had deserted him and doubted his power to return.

There’s the possibility that he wanted to send Harry’s body back, either to divert suspicion somehow or to intentionally flout his victory in Dumbledore’s face. Except Voldemort had promised his precious Nagini several times she could eat Harry, and it seemed like a promise Voldemort was going to keep.

So who was meant to take that return trip?

Voldemort could use it as a ticket into Hogwarts for a surprise attack, but he’s freshly reborn, his Death Eaters are 13 years out of practice, and there’s a flock of powerful wizards there for the Triwizard. That would be an idiotic move.

Or what if Harry—or someone who looked like him—had returned to Hogwarts as if nothing had happened in that maze? As the victor of the Triwizard Tournament AND the Boy Who Lived, Harry would be able to go anywhere and do anything. Everyone trusts him.

Two words: POLYJUICE POTION.

There was one Death Eater already waiting at Hogwarts who had very carefully been spending a whole year getting to know Harry, watching his every movement: Barty Crouch Jr.

So here was Voldemort’s complete plan: Use Barty Crouch Jr. to infiltrate Hogwarts as Moody. He gets to know Harry and sets him up to be selected for and eventually to win the Triwizard Tournament. He makes sure Harry touches the cup first. Harry is then transported to the graveyard where Voldemort is waiting. Voldemort uses Harry to rise, calls his Death Eaters to him, and then humiliates and kills the Boy Who Lived in front of them.

Then Voldemort strips Harry’s body, takes his hair, and transforms into him (or else has one of his DE’s do this—but really, who would he pick? Lucius is an idiot, Bellatrix is still in jail, and he believes Snape has deserted him). He then takes the cup and goes to Hogwarts as Harry. Later that night, Moody disappears, and Crouch takes Voldemort’s place as Harry Potter. Then, when the moment is right, Voldemort-Harry or Crouch-Harry will assassinate Dumbledore (incidentally gaining the power of the Elder Wand, though he wouldn’t know it), stage a coup of Hogwarts, and take over the wizarding world.

Heck, he/they might not even drop their disguise as Harry. The wizarding world has faced Voldemort as an enemy before, but if their savior Harry Potter suddenly turned out to be just as powerful a Dark Lord as He Who Must Not Be Named? It would be a far scarier prospect than simply dealing with Voldemort’s return.

It solves the problem of why Voldemort went to such lengths to get Harry through the Triwizard, when there were far easier ways to capture him: Voldemort didn’t just need Harry’s blood; he needed Harry as the world’s hero.

And all that time in Hogwarts would give Voldemort time to search for a relic of Godric Gryffindor, the one founder he never made a horcrux from.

Of course, none of this could have worked because Voldemort could never in a million years fool Ron or Hermione or Dumbledore, not even for a minute. But there’s Voldemort’s greatest weakness again—he doesn’t understand love.

You’re welcome.

The thing about working out at a gym is, even though I like to try and be healthy and fit, is this: I don’t want to look back one day and realize all the time I - you could say - wasted, just trying to fit an aesthetic ideal. As in all the time I spent working on my appearance when I could have gone on adventures and done other stuff that makes me happy.

we joke about procrastination but nothing is worse than the nauseating feeling of having every intention of doing something but physically not being capable of doing it and then feeling like you want to throw up because the deadline is just getting closer and closer.

"Tiana’s one of my very favorite Disney princesses, but it really upsets me that a lot of her fans only like her for "what" she is as opposed to who she is. There is so much more to Tiana than her just being "the first black princess," and I only liking her because of something arbitrary like her skin color (as opposed to her awesome resourcefulness, sense of dignity, and ambition) is missing the entire point of her character, and that depresses me"

How dare you. How fucking dare you?!
Do you know how much it means to black girls and even black women that Tiana is black? Do you know what it means that little black girls have been growing up not seeing anyone who liked like them as a princess?
That when people would describe a princess a black woman did not come to mind?
Don’t you ever fucking insist that you’re the only person who likes her for who she.
Don’t you fucking dare think you are better than black women and little girls for clinging on to Tiana.

Not only that but when you’re a child, it’s so important you see a hero like you. A lot of white people do not understand this, thinking that children do not give two shits about skin color. When you’re young, that is one of the first things you see and one of the first things other kids will point out. Having a hero like you makes you feel validated and important.
Is this such a hard concept to understand?

there’s a gif floating around tumblr of a little black girl being asked to point out “the beautiful child” and she points out the white girl. Then when asked, respectively, to point out the ugly child and the stupid child, she points out the black girl both times. 
Do you understand how desperately, DESPERATELY needed Tiana was for little black girls everywhere who just accepted and internalized that they were “lesser” than white girls and that they’d never be princesses? 
Nobody here has forgotten about Tiana’s resourcefulness or ambition, you’re not some special snowflake for loving those qualities and noticing them in her. But for little girls to see those qualities in a BLACK woman? Necessary. Important. So, so needed.
Don’t try to separate Tiana’s skin color from her dignity and persistence and determination. Don’t try to separate Tiana’s skin color from her beauty, both inside and out. Don’t try to silence her blackness or what this representation means for those who have gone so long without seeing themselves shown in a positive light.

Negatives of JUST THIS MORNING:

  • cheerios from the dining hall are stale
  • my alarm didn’t go off so I woke up JUST as class was starting so I was a half hour late haha fml
  • cafeteria lady decided to “jokingly” inquire after my eating since most of the time I just go in there to get coffee. She was just like, asking invasive questions like “Do you eat at least two meals a day" and saying "You can get coffee once I see you eat L O L!" Both hilarious and uncomfortably nosy. And by the way, yes, I eat like five times a day, thank ya very much.
  • Feeling nauseous after eating really fast because I have ANOTHER class soon and hadn’t been able to eat yet and yeah I need to eat at least SOMETHING in the morning. And because of it I suffer

And I don’t have many positives but I don’t want this to be a totally depressing post so:

  • Wearing a really cute dress today with stockings that I always get complimented on
  • Cheerios and Trix cereal!! Even though they’re stale-ish
  • Vanilla + hazelnut flavored coffee, for the win
  • Just got my test back from bio and I got an A+ including the extra credit I got so HELL YEAH that’s exciting
  • instead of just going back to sleep once I woke up late and realized I wouldn’t make it in time to class because class had already started, I STILL decided to get up, get ready, and arrive to class late.
