this means so much to me. so much

Okay but like actually this is the most thoughtful gift IN THE WHOLE WORLD.
It might seem to make more sense to give Ron the precious family heirloom (remember that Molly’s brother Fabian died in the First Wizarding War; Molly has held onto his watch out of sentimentality since then). But Ron is the sixth son in his (canonically financially-struggling) family. He’s been forced into hand-me-downs his whole life. If he’d gotten the watch with a dent in the back, he wouldn’t have appreciated it; he’d only have seen the flaw. And if his mum bought Harry a new watch instead of getting Ron one, Ron would have resented that. A new watch was a worthwhile expense to get Ron a rare taste of the luxury and individual attention he has always craved.
Harry, though. Harry has money; Harry has new things. What Harry does not have is family. Harry is an orphan. Other than one photo album and the invisibility cloak, he doesn’t have anything that came with family history attached. What Molly does here is give him that; she makes him part of the family, symbolically, by giving him an emotionally significant if physically imperfect item. She gives him love in a tangible form.

This makes me CRY

Even more sad: Molly didn’t just have one brother. She had two, Gideon and Fabian, and they were twins. They both died in the first war and Fred and George’s names are a deliberate remembrance of them. Molly is overbearing in protecting her sons and keeping them close, but losing her family isn’t an abstract threat to her. It’s something that’s already happened once. And she gives Fabian’s watch to Harry because he’s her kid too. He belongs in her family, and she’ll worry for him too, and fight for him, and afskfhgl I have so many herofeels for Molly Weasely the Supermum.

Friends is not a perfect show but those moments when the women stood up for themselves were truly formative. For quite a long time in my young personal life I didn’t see many women standing up for themselves when men gave them shit. I only read about them, or saw them occasionally on television, and I am grateful to those fictional women for giving me a spine, a vocabulary with which to stand up for myself, and plenty of gumption.

[] It should be a truth universally acknowledged
That a heroine in a major cinematic franchise
must be in want of her own damn movie.

"Weenies" is not the word I would use.

Dark Angel - Designate This 2.01

I feel I should specify that he was not trying to assault her. He’d been raised in a facility that trained super soldiers, they were given orders to breed more super soldiers, he assumed his fellow soldier would be following the order and when he found out he was wrong he backed off

Dark Angel is a fantastic show but sadly only got two seasons. It’s female driven sci-fi with a talented supporting cast. The women are well rounded characters with story arcs that involve more than just romance, and you get to see young Jensen Ackles kicking ass and taking off his shirt.
