these are INCREDIBLE
People who hate Harry Potter missed the a giant part of the story. Despite being abused by his aunt, uncle and cousin his whole life Harry was kind, compassionate, loyal, protective and honest. He defended those who needed it and stood up to those who deserved it. He didn’t become bitter or hateful. And he spent his life trying to protect others. You can’t hate him because people chose to stand by him even if it meant they’d die. He didn’t want that, he wanted everyone to live even if it meant he couldn’t anymore.
The Amazing Connections Between the Inca and Egyptian Cultures
"The ancient Egyptians (in Africa) and the ancient pre-Incas/Incas (in South America) evolved on opposite sides of the globe and were never in contact.
Yet, both cultures mysteriously possessed the same strikingly identical body of ancient art, architecture, symbolism, mythology and religion.

1. I am so thrilled to have been named to the 2014 TIME 100. Shai’s essay is so kind and generous. That sentence about planets and moons is a lovely goal for us all to reach toward. Now, that said, I’m no prophet. I’m a guy who not too long ago tried to wax his chin.

First: Welcome to the fandom! Or as we like to say here on the Doctor Who Tumblr, congrats on being #NewToWho!Second: Saying goodbye to Rose is really hard, but thankfully there’s an entire community of Whovians on Tumblr who have been through exactly this (say hi to crazyshort17, Whovians!)Goodbyes are one of the more difficult things in life. There are all kinds of goodbyes: the goodbyes that are really ‘I’ll see you soon’s; the goodbyes when we know we won’t ever see the person again and the ones that aren’t really goodbye at all.When we here at the Doctor Who Tumblr have to say goodbye, we like to remind ourselves to also say, “We’re really glad that we got to know you.”The best thing about being a Whovian is that in those times when we have to do difficult things like say goodbye, we can also appreciate that there are so many people left to say hello to! There are thousands of other Doctor Who fans who would love to talk to you about what you’re processing at the moment.
