also the whole “dad-with-a-shotgun-meeting-the-boyfriend” trope is actually so so not cute and only serves as an example of the creepy absolute ownership that most men think they have over their daughters

I was Re-watching Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and I realized that the Dursleys not only failed Harry (which they did majorly), they failed Dudley as well.
By spoiling him and enabling him to bully and belittle others from such a young age they are partly what made him the way he was.
Like how they showed him to be greedy by showering him with presents on his birthday and not objecting or telling him he should be grateful when he complained and asked for more.
Or by turning the other way (and even encouraging him) when he bullied other children, especially Harry.
It was their responsibility to teach him right from wrong and they failed.
I am not saying Dudley is completely innocent or that he is stuck being a greedy bully but they certainly didn’t do him any favours.
“Dumbledore paused, and although his voice remained light and calm, and he gave no obvious sign of anger, Harry felt a kind of chill emanating from him and noticed that the Dursleys drew very slightly closer together.
'You did not do as I asked. You have never treated Harry as a son. He has known nothing but neglect and often cruelty at your hands. The best that can be said is that he has at least escaped the appalling damage you have inflicted upon the unfortunate boy sitting between you.'”

"Annabeth’s shoulder’s ached. The elevator’s easy-listening music didn’t help. If all monsters had to hear that song about liking pina coladas and getting caught in the rain, no wonder they were in the mood for carnage when they reached the mortal world."
I finally got a chance to read House of Hades and I’m 100% sure this was exactly how it went
if you’re about to die, might as well try.
he puts his hands up like he’s pleading and catches the guy completely off guard. i mean. he’s got a gun. guy’s on his knees. he feels totally safe and in control of the situation. then the guys hands are right next to the gun and he surprises him and immediately tilts the weapon up and away from him and yanks the arm down while thrusting his legs forward to kneecap the guy and manages to wrench the gun away
so shit now the second guy is on the ground with probably a broken knee and no gun and the first guy has the weapon and is fucking free and clear remember this me you need to remember this
Are you serious right now? I’m a fully certified neurosurgeon. I can break into people’s heads and rewire their brains and tamper with their memory, no problem. But this? This juice box? This sugary drink marketed for eight year olds? No. Sticking a straw into this juice container is apparently just too much for me to handle without fucking it up. I’m done. I quit. Goodbye.
lydia actually did this
I was sure I was gonna scroll down and the last panel would just be the artist sitting there doing nothing like every other “I’m gonna do a thing” comic I’ve ever seen so suffice it to say I’m very pleasantly surprised
