Just take in that J.K Rowling could have left it at The Deathly Hallows and she didn’t have to make Pottermore or anything she didn’t even have to write an epilogue or anything but she CHOSE to and she CHOSE to write these articles not for money or anything, like she’s literally writing fanfiction about her own story and that’s how cool she is so if you don’t like JK Rowling goodbye because she is actually amazing

I am a color, a height, a weight, a number. But in the world of books and writing, I am amazing. I am powerful. I am different. People are better. Worlds are endless. Change is possible. Life is manageable.
This tag is just too perfect.
