the term “aro-ace” is especially lovely because it also sounds like “arrow ace.” are you aromantic and asexual or are you an incredibly skilled and deadly archer. surprise, you’re both
Let’s not forget the original arrow ace:

My roommate bought a pack of 24 rolls of toilet paper yesterday, in addition to the half dozen we already had, and stored all of them in the bathroom. And just let me tell you, there’s something incredibly calming and reassuring about looking next to you while you’re on the toilet and seeing 30 rolls of toilet paper sitting there. You get a feeling like, no matter how bad shit gets in there, you’re always going to make it out okay in the end.
do you have that one person that you can’t look at when your trying to be mad at them because they’re so cute
And this is brilliant. Because it demonstrates that racism isn’t only present in clearly malicious and evil people, in the Malfoys and Blacks - it’s also there in warm, kind, funny people who just happened to learn some pretty toxic things growing up in a pretty toxic society. And they can unlearn them too, with some time and effort. Ron eventually accepts Hagrid’s parentage, lets Lupin bandage his leg and in the final battle, he worries about the safety of the house elves.
Some people are prejudiced because they are evil, and some people are prejudiced because they don’t know better yet. And those people can learn better, and become better people. And that’s an important lesson. The lesson taught about discrimination shouldn’t be “only evil people do it”, because then all readers will assume it doesn’t apply to them. Instead old JK teaches us “you too are probably doing it, and you should do stop ASAP”.

I’m so here for this.
In case you were wondering, the Japanese caption says, “Tomorrow, we will definitely laugh.”
Just a reminder…
I like having the ask box on the tumblr. On a good day I’ll probably answer two or three asks. On a bad week I probably won’t get time to answer any. And every day about fifty or sixty asks come in. More, if I just answered a cluster.
Most of them are really nice. And most of the people sending them in know that the odds are against me ever answering them, and that’s just the way it is.
(The odds are especially low if you are asking something I’ve answered already, and even lower than that if I answered it yesterday.)
But some of the people sending in asks are starting to get pushy, or whiny, or grumbly about me not answering, or they are taking it personally, or flooding the ask box, or writing really long messages split over a dozen boxes. And lots of them are starting to ask for things: will I read your book, or conduct your wedding, or call your beloved and tell her you want to marry her, or draw you something to be tattooed, or be interviewed, or do your homework because you have to get a reply from a living author or you’ll fail the course and please reply privately before 6 pm…
Which is of course your right.
I like things as they are right now. I like that Tumblr doesn’t feel like work, and it’s relatively guilt free. I treat the asks like I treat my Twitter feed - hundreds of them flow past, and here and there I answer, depending on auctorial whim, and what I happen to be doing at that moment.
You’re more likely to get a question answered if it’s relatively short, easily answerable, and you can’t simply find the reply by googling. I’ve probably answered every possible variant of what to do if you have writer’s block, or have lost interest in what you’re writing, or you want to be a writer, or you don’t want to be a writer, here or on the blog at neilgaiman.com already. If that’s your question, I’m not ignoring you. I just hate repeating myself.
You’re less likely to get a reply if you ask something like “People say that a good writer should hate everything they’ve done but I like what I write is there something wrong with me?” because I don’t know how to answer a lot of these kind of things without sounding impatient and grumpy (In this case, “Don’t be an idiot,” would be the best possible reply, and it’s not one that will make the person getting it happier).
I quite like having an ask box. I do not want to make it go away.
It seemed like a good time to reblog this. (The unanswered asks in-box just hit 28,000.)
As long as you are happy with knowing that I will probably see what you sent (as long as it’s not the kind of crazy day when a few hundred asks come in as Tumblr doesn’t really seem set up for dealing with anything but the most recent dozen or so things) but that the odds are always against you getting an answer, this thing will keep working.
An example of a good question:
I would rather spend one lifetime with you than face all the Ages of this world alone
Yeah, but you weren’t going to face all the Ages of this world alone. You were going to spend them with a bunch of your friends and family and, who knows, maybe some very nice, immortal Elf man.
You were going to spend them with your father and your brothers and all the other immortals in the west who love you so dearly. And now you have doomed them to a life without you. Elrond would also rather spend a lifetime with you than alone in the west. but alas, that was not his choice to make.
I swear a lot of people would be less confused about their sexual orientation if they knew that romantic orientations were also a thing.
