So here’s what happened when I met Darren Criss for my G4 photoshoot…
Harrison: Hello!
Darren: Hey! Wow!
Harrison: Can we do a hug or kissy faces, please? Like… Kurt and Blaine?
Darren: We should Klaine!  What should we do!?
Harrison: [mentally going ‘asdfghjkl’] A hug then?
Darren: We’re gonna do this. [GRABS]

OK, see these super cute bracelets? I love them. Loooove theeeem. They are just the right touch of fannishness for me - small but obvious, jangly yet still a little discreet. I don’t wear them every day but I wear the hell out of them in fannish spaces, and they are perfect, and they make me really happy. I bought them all from a woman here at SDCC, and every year I go to her booth (she’s in the 900s, toward the back of the hall, on the left if you are facing the back wall - you can’t miss her).
I have always wanted a Klaine one. Always. 
And now we’re in our last year, and I really want one before I go so that I can keep it as a beloved token, and the woman who makes them isn’t going to do it, so to hell with it. 
If there’s interest, we are going to make our own.
What I want to do: find 6 different beloved fanartists who would draw something that would translate well to a 1” button. In the perfect world, these fanartists would collaborate, so that we get a range of images and not, like, 6 different bowties or whatever. 
If you help me find the artists, I will buy the button-maker (anybody have one and want to be in charge of button production?), front the money for the supplies, do the production, and sell them (at the barest cost of materials+shipping; this is not a money-making venture, but it also feels like it could turn into a money pit) to anybody who wants one.
I just… IDK, this is a thing I want to go out with. I want one to keep, because these that I have make me really happy. And my guess is that I’m not the only one?
So, things:
Would you want one of these? Is there some weird thing about these that makes them appealing only to me, or am I totally right and these are cute as a bracelet made of 6 buttons? :D
Will you hit my ask to recommend fanartists I should ask? 
Is this a just-me thing? Or should I proceed to find people and try to make it happen? (Or should I sink hundreds of dollars into this project for one button bracelet that is just mine NO THAT IS A TERRIBLE IDEA.)

Dumbledore, notorious for giving second chances Dumbledore, let Sirius rot in Azkaban for twelve years. 

He must have known Sirius well due to his time in the Order, he must have known what James meant to Sirius. Dumbledore was a member of the freaking Wizengamot yet he didn’t fight the Ministry’s horrifying trial-optional policy. 

This is a man who took back Death Eater!Snape at his word, shielded him from prison, and employed him at a school for children. 

But he didn’t have a use for Sirius, so he didn’t care about him.

I got 99 problems with Dumbledore and his treatment of Sirius Black accounts for like 64 of them.  

To be honest, Albus Dumbledore is one of the most disturbing, terrifying characters I’ve ever found in a book, because he thought he was a good guy and so did everyone else and the books don’t really challenge it either (given that Harry forgives him for everything he did), but when you look between the lines he was profoundly, profoundly immoral and unethical.

A couple of months ago, I was talking about HP characters with a friend, and he said that Dumbledore was one of his least favorite characters of all time.

Naturally, this took me back a bit since he’s one of the heroes of the series, misguided as he was at times. Still, I was curious and asked my friend why he hated him. His answer still strikes a chord with me.

"There is never, ever a reason to leave a child in an abusive home. Never."
