(Send me one that you think I’m best at)
This is long overdue, since I’m almost at 250 now, but still figured I’d show my love and appreciation because I seriously can’t thank you guys enough. Thank you seems just like dull words on paper and you guys seriously have no idea how much I love and appreciate each and everyone one of you. Whether you’re on this list or not, even if I’m not following you. Just know I still love you for putting up with me.

Lee shrieked and curled in on himself. Bellatrix smirked at the effect her curse had on him.
Lee started to shake, muscles tensing and untensing, he laughed and sat up. He leaned against the wall.For a moment, she thought she hadn’t cast the spell properly. Bellatrix’s eyes flickered to his hands. They were curled into fists and tremoring.
"No, I can feel it,"said Lee. He closed his eyes. "Every jolt. Every wave. It’s excruciating, but I can take it. Do you want to know why?"
"You talk too much, boy."She pushed harder.
Lee gasped and his nails dug into his palm.His head bowed for a moment, but he snarled when he raised it again.”I wasn’t done talking. Because the pain never left. Not while I was away.It echoed and rebound in my head and my nerves and it never stopped.”
Lee raised a hand above his head.” I said, I wasn’t done.”He pushed forward in the air and Bellatrix dug in her heels. She stopped short of slamming into the wall.Lee stood.Bellatrix shot off a curse, but her arm didn’t come down all the way and it sailed over his head.
"Stop interrupting me,"said Lee.He snapped his fingers and her wand flew from her hand.Bellatrix snarled and charged forward.Lee pushed back with two hands and she hit the wall hard.He lowered one hand and kept the other raised as if he were holding a cup.He squeezed.
Bellatrix clawed at her neck and coughed. Lee loosened his grip a little. “Better? Your control in certain areas is impressive, but in others…Pitiful. Your emotions are your greatest weakness. They have been mine. ” He picked up her wand. He released her hold on her neck and she fell onto her hands and knees.
"Don’t try anything, Bells." He twirled her wand in his fingers. "And remember, I know how you think. Did you enjoy it? Looking inside my head? Seeing what it would be like to have people care without fearing you? Trying to figure out how best to destroy me?" Lee grinned."I bet you enjoyed every moment."
Bellatrix raised her head.”I’ll enjoy tearing you apart even more.”
Lee stopped twirling her wand. “What did you tell me? I have to mean it?Want it? Will it?” He stabbed the wand forward.Bellatrix stiffened and pressed her back flat against the wall.Her eyes glared at him. She tried suppressing a whimper.He made a twisting motion.
"The connection between us is strong. You made sure of that.You took a battering ram to my mind. It broke. It emptied. And what was left? Something you could use to do your bidding. A hollow shell adept at imitating the man you destroyed. Hah. Man. Boy. Poor little Reporter Boy.You were all he had left. The only shred of power he could cling to…You’re so bold, so honest in your loyalties, so…controlled by your own rage and pain. And arrogance.”
Lee shook his head.He knelt to look into her eyes.”But when it comes down to it you’re just a lonely little girl with a temper. Old Voldy didn’t love you, your sisters feared you, Mummy and Daddy were so disappointed and now they’re dead…”
Lee tutted.He trailed a finger along her jawline. She hissed and jerked her chin away. Bellatrix growled. Lee tilted his head, twisted the wand again, she gasped, and Lee smiled wider. “You gave me so much, but something had to be done about you. Revenge will not fill me. Nothing will. I have no illusions about that. But we’ve been too nice to people like you. There are others out there…hiding…who have yet to pay.” He tilted her chin up and she tried to bite his hand. He withdrew it and jabbed her wand towards her. “Crucio.”
Bellatrix ground her teeth and closed her eyes. Lee tutted again. “You almost made me lose my temper. Now, where was I? I remember…I’ve always preferred hands on learning. Learning by doing over textbook stuff.Imperio.Look at me.” Bellatrix’s eyes opened with the same hard rage in them.
“You’re an excellent teacher. Very practical. You invested time and energy and I learned so much. I learned…how horrifying it is to be trapped in your head, to watch your life be torn from you and being completely unable to stop it. Killing you would be too easy.” His hand shook as he cupped her cheek. He kissed her forehead. “Teacher, would you like to see how well I’ve learned my lessons?”
A beautifully done animation on how you became you.
See the full video here as I left out some really cool parts.
From 300 or so million down to ONE.
YOU. MADE. IT.
I genuinely just sent this to my friend who’s been suicidal and she said it actually made her feel amazing for for the first time in a long time
THE POWER OF SCIENCE (and cool animation)

That one teacher is still a jerk, though. He hasn’t redeemed himself yet. And what the heck Coach? IT’S AN S not a B. Biles. (I know that was like 20 minutes ago, but come on…)
I love how the parents and teachers are written as people, too. Too many high school set dramas neglect the parents.
i love watching people watch for the first time
