THIS! Also I wish Rowling would have explored Hermione’s motivations more, because damn, these tags did a better job at explaining her motivations than the actual books. I mean, seriously, we get to know all about Ron, get to learn all his deepest fears and his greatest motivations, get to meet each member of his family, get to see where he lives, get to know him outside the context of being one of Harry’s best friends… but Hermione? Well, we don’t even get to know half of that.

Hermione is one of my favorite characters, but we don’t get to know Hermione like we do Ron. In fact, this can be said of most of the women in the series when you think about it. 

Since everyone’s already talking about Hermione, I’d like to bring this back. I have a lot of feelings about the women in Harry Potter.

Storeroom of the Archeological Museum in Olympia, Greece. 

I’m going to use this picture on the cover of my self-published translation of the Iliad.

I think I see Sauron’s helmet in the bottom, second to last bottom left.

teandumplings Hahahahaha, actual laughter. Yes it is that dress (which I wore with a bolero). You also see pictures from IRL too, that helps?

But I figured out my conundrum! I found trousers and a tunic from Black House White Market! Success.

I should probably be a productive human being now? Gross.

teandumplings (I like how we’re half on tumblr and avoiding Thucydides/Homer. Goob job everyone) The other classics majors/eta sigma phi people also being initiated with me will have seen me in it on March 24th. I could potentially wear this one

teandumplings I know - I’m obsessed with that dress. But I’ve literally worn it to all important occasions in March… I feel like I have to switch it up.

I have nothing to wear for my Phi Beta Kappa initiation

Also I will be leaving a little early to get on a Megabus to Chicago for the Eta Sigma Phi Convention right afterward - what is comfortable but suitable for an initiation???

there is literally no difference between academic scholars discussing their interpretations of a text and a bunch of people yelling YOUR HEADCANON IS WRONG at each other

As a Masters student I can vouch for this.
