There was a lot more to magic, as Harry quickly found out, than waving your wand and saying a few funny words.
"I only play real games."
Remember when Disney had a cute, disabled, poc mermaid?
When i was younger, one of my best friends was a deaf guyanese girl, and her fave princess was Ariel, mainly bc she related to her living without a voice (and her love of swimming)
When this episode aired, she cried and squawked and made sounds that were almost understandable… She saw herself as a mermaid, on tv, with her favourite character of all time
Representation matters, always, no matter what
So everytime I type something wrong or use the wrong word or the wrong tempus or grammar etc. I always get paranoid that someone who has english as their native language, will read what I wrote and spot all the mistakes I made and think, “Is she stupid or something?” or “Daamn, her english is horrible, I am never going to speak to her”.
Most of the non native-English I’ve conversed with on here write English better than I do. And I have ALevels in that shit!
when you say to yourself, “oh there you are. i’ve been looking for you forever…”
