I’m now three for four on employers handing me the keys to social media just because I’m in my twenties. Good strategy guys.
- Me: This older generation pisses me off so much
- Therapist: Why?
- Me: Because when I was growing up, we were forcefed the idea that if we didn't want to be 'flipping burgers at McDonalds,' then we'd better go to college.
- Therapist: And?
- Me: And now we've all gone to college, have degrees, can't get a damn job, and the same people that told us to go to college call us entitled assholes because we refuse to flip burgers
- Therapist: Touche
Headcanon that Shakespeare was a muggle, but that he was so popular and influential that his plays grew to be an important part of wizarding culture too. Purebloods therefore usually just assume that he was a wizard and are absolutely flabbergasted when someone at Hogwarts informs them of the truth.
"BUT HE WROTE ABOUT WITCHES IN SCOTLAND, HOW WAS HE NOT A WIZARD?"
"I dunno, maybe he was just friends with a Hogwarts graduate?"
Oh man and it’s just like arguments in real life where people say that Shakespeare had to be a courtier because he wrote about court life even though his depiction of royal courts isn’t actually very accurate (there aren’t nearly enough people around, basically). There are probably wizarding historians who have pointed out that wizards from Shakespeare’s own time have pointed out all the places where his magic is inaccurate, with references to actual 16th-century magic books, but nobody bothers to read them because nobody likes History of Magic and related topics.
