There is a place. Like no place on Earth. A land full of wonder, mystery, and danger!

The Last Bookstore
Los Angeles, California

This place is on my bucket list to visit.

this is the only place i buy books from anymore ((and im going there tomorrow i need some new trashy romance novels)))

cool fact: up on the second floor, 1 book only costs $1. and the amount of cool books up there is endlessssss. so if you have $5 to spend well lucky you

This place looks, like it smells sssoooo gggoooodd

Going.

Also going here!

Someone take me there and I’ll love you forever.

I’ve been there and they not only have books but little art and sewing/stitching classes and small art gallery thingies up on one of the higher floors.
Fun fact: the building used to be a bank and they have this actual vault that, if closed, will not open again and in the vault they keep all the crime novels and it’s super fucking rad

What you don’t seem to realized is that there are many different levels of intelligence. Wasn’t Luna the one that found a way to get to the ministry? Wasn’t Luna the one to always comfort Harry- the one who understood him in ways that no one else could? You don’t have to have Book smarts to be considered smart. It’s clear that Luna has very high levels of interpersonal intelligence. To be honest I don’t even know where this is coming from- we never see her in a classroom, we don’t see her grades- wtf are you talking about? Because she believes in things other people don’t?  Do we have proof that those things don’t exist!? This was one of the most important themes in the book- Voldemort, the chamber of secrets, the room of requirement, horcruxes, Ravenclaw’s diadem, THE DEATHLY HALLOWS….. people didn’t believe they existed but eventually they were proven wrong. So why should Luna be considered stupid just because she chooses to believe!? And I can’t… because she doesn’t try to make friends!? Really? Fucking REALLY!? WHY would you try to be friends with people who treat you like crap? Who bully you and call you names just because you’re different? No one needs friends like that. And Luna didn’t need people like that in her life and she knew that. Didn’t she eventually find the friends that she deserved? The ones that accepted her quirks and differences and didn’t try and make her change? Frankly, I’m ashamed of you. You’re showing levels of narrow-minded ignorance a Ravenclaw shouldn’t possess.

Fuck, being a Ravenclaw does NOT mean being academically brilliant and overly logical and having a stick up your ass. It means being open to new ideas and alternatives and being willing to think outside of the box; it means accepting that you do not know everything but nonetheless choosing to follow your own path and learn for the sake of learning. It means not judging others for their eccentricities because there are so many different types of intelligence. While it makes logical sense that Ravenclaws would be good at academics and smart, being smart has multiple facets. Two brilliant people could disagree with one another on everything just because their modes of thought and the way they process information is completely different. Luna was different, and the way she processed reality may seem funny, but that doesn’t detract from the fact that she passionately searched for information about things she was interested in, even if that thing is a crumple horned snorkack. Being a Ravenclaw means accepting the world for being a strange and marvelous as it is, and seizing it to learn all of its intricacies. Luna is more a Ravenclaw than you will ever be.

Can we also bring up the fact that one of the magical creatures she “made up” was found to be true, but only certain people could see it so they thought she was insane?
If the thestral was real, who’s to say the other things weren’t?

I knew when the answer opened with those gifs that someone was going to get schooled.

Are we never going to talk about how the “password” to the Ravenclaw tower is a RIDDLE?
A Ravenclaw who is strictly logical will LITERALLY BE UNABLE TO GET TO THEIR DORM. A Ravenclaw who has book-smarts and cannot think outside the box and take the weird answer WILL NOT BE ABLE TO BE A RAVENCLAW. “Which came first, the phoenix or the flame?” “Where do Vanished objects go?”
TO BE A RAVENCLAW YOU HAVE TO BE ABLE TO THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX. YOU HAVE TO BE ABLE TO TAKE THE ANSWER THAT ISN’T GIVEN, TO TAKE THE WEIRD OPTION AND FLIGHT OF FANCY AND MAKE SENSE OF IT. BECAUSE THAT’S THE KIND OF RIDDLE RAVENCLAWS LIVE ON. THE KIND OF RIDDLE THAT ACTS AS A KEY TO GET INTO THEIR DAMN DORM.
AND WHAT’S MORE, YOU KNOW WHO WAS THE SHITTIEST TO LUNA, AS FAR AS WE CAN TELL FROM THE BOOKS? OTHER. RAVENCLAWS. RAVENCLAWS ARE THE ONLY ONES WHO COULD HAVE GOTTEN INTO HER DORM AND TAKE THINGS. RAVENCLAWS HAD TO HAVE A BIG FUCKING HAND IN TORMENTING LUNA. WHY THE FUCK SHOULD SHE MAKE FRIENDS WITH THOSE PEOPLE?

this post is so great because it demonstrates exactly how luna got bullied for being different and also how she got a badass posse of friends to save the goddamn world with

Also, let us remember that even if none of the above were true (and of course, all these things are true, house placement is based on the qualities you value the most. So that doesn’t mean you have to be the smartest person ever to be in Ravenclaw, the bravest person to be in Gryffindor, etc. Luna is in Ravenclaw because she wants to be there, because she values intelligence and learning and discovery, and because that is who she is.

The most Powerful scene of the whole series.

This scene is so beautiful to me because it’s one of those things the writers put in for the older viewers despite the overwhelming younger demographic, but instead of some kind of sexual joke, it’s an actually powerful wake-up call.

Just because someone is of the same blood as you, doesn’t mean you automatically have to love them. Your family needs to earn your love and respect, not mandate it due to the presence of mutual genes. And I think that’s something a lot of us don’t realize until we’re older, and it’s a bit too late.

LOOK AT THIS GODDAMN DRINK, SO BEAUTIFUL. IT’S CALLED ‘ITALIAN SODA’ 
BECAUSE ITALIANS KNOW HOW TO DO FUCKING EVERYTHING PERFECTLY. JESUS FUCK, LOOK AT THAT SHIT. PASTA AND PAINTINGS AND NOW THEY’VE MADE SODA INTO A FACE-SMASHING ART!HOW THE HELL DO YOU MAKE SOMETHING THIS FLAWLESS?WELL SAUNTER INTO THE KITCHEN, MY LOVELY LITTLE SHITS, BECAUSE IT’S TIME TO GET COOKING!
INGREDIENTS YOU NEED INCLUDE SOME WATER, SUGAR, HALF-AND-HALF CREAM AND CLUB SODA,THEN BLUEBERRIES OR STRAWBERRIES. FIRST, YOU’LL MAKE SOME FUCKING FRUIT SYRUP. IF YOU FEEL LIKE CLIMBING MOUNT EVEREST IN YOUR UNDERWEAR, BLUEBERRIES IS PROBABLY BEST FOR YOU, AND YOU’LL NEED 3 CUPS OF THOSE BEAUTIFUL DARLINGS. IF YOU WANT TO WRESTLE SOME GREAT WHITE SHARKS WITH A DEER HAUNCH STRAPPED TO YOUR ASS, THEN STRAWBERRIES SOUNDS LIKE THE BETTER FLAVOR FOR YOUR FLAWLESS MOUTH. YOU’LL NEED 4 CUPS OF CHOPPED STRAWBERRIES.  PICK YOUR FRUIT AND STICK WITH IT! SHOVE 2 CUPS OF WATER INTO A POT, WITH 2 CUPS OF SUGAR! KEEP THAT SHIT ON ‘HIGH’ TEMPERATURE AND STIR UNTIL IT JUST LOOKS LIKE THICK WATER. 
PREPARE YOUR BODY, BECAUSE THIS SHIT IS MAGNIFICENT. JUMP OUT OF AN AIRPLANE AND TOSS THE 4 CUPS OF STRAWBERRIES OUT OF THE ATMOSPHERE AND INTO YOUR POT. ALTERNATELY, IF YOU’RE FEELING LIKE A LAZY SHIT, YOU CAN SCOOP THE FRUIT UP WITH YOUR HANDS AND DUMP THEM INTO THE POT LIKE A FUCKING WUSS. 
LET IT BOIL FOR 10 MINUTES, WHILE YOU’RE WAITING, YOU CAN GO SWALLOW A FUCKING TIME VORTEX TO SAVE THE UNIVERSE, BUT GET BACK IN TIME TO TAKE THAT SHIT OFF THE HEAT. PUT A BOWL UNDER YOUR STRAINER BEFORE YOU SHOVE YOUR MIXTURE INTO IT, BECAUSE YOU’RE SAVING THE SYRUP, AND THE FRUIT ALREADY DID ITS JOB. SHOVE THIS DELICIOUS SYRUP SHIT INTO A CUP SO IT’LL BE EASIER TO HANDLE. I MAKE DOUBLE BATCHES AND KEEP THE EXTRA STUFF IN A BOTTLE MADE FROM CRYSTALLIZED TIME LORD TEARS AND CHILDREN’S LAUGHTER. SHOVE YOUR SYRUP IN THE FREEZER FOR AN HOUR, BECAUSE IT NEEDS TO COOL THE FUCK DOWN!NOW GET OUT YOUR JESUS FUCK THIS IS SO FANCY TYPE OF GLASSES, HELL, MAYBE YOU FEEL LIKE USING YOUR ANCIENT CRYSTAL CHAMPAGNE FLUTES, WHAT THE FUCK EVER. I DON’T GIVE A FUCKFILL THOSE BEAUTIFUL BASTARDS WITH ICE. FILL ¼ OF THE CUP WITH YOUR SYRUP. THEN GET IT UP TO THE ¾ POINT WITH CLUB SODA. AND TOP IT OFF WITH SOME HALF-AND-HALF. BEAUTIFUL BOUNCING TITTIES THAT LOOKS WONDERFUL.
