old ass ppl talk shit about my generation until they accidentally disable their wifi and cant figure out how to turn it back on
then im suddenly the mastermind of information & resources
tonight i looked to the stars
and fought the urge to leave the city,
in an effort to see the glowing patterns
that veil the black and blue.

i have come to ponder if the sky
now holds you as a brand new constellation;
a tangible manifestation of the life
that you left behind
for the human race to awe
in the very same way.
me by the time I get my assignments done:
Me when I get the results back:
- me: I'm so cute
- me 15 mins later: I hate myself

Let me recommend you some background reading first.”
Pride of place is Tolkein’s The Lord of the Rings, and it’s somewhat of an initiation ritual for purebloods to read it. The older students take bets on how long it will take each student to realise it’s not a history book.
The Shakespeare collection is quite large, and there’s an unofficial rule against enchanted translations of it. This came about when one frustrated reading group poring over Romeo and Juliet enchanted the book to read a modern, context-aware translation aloud, and filled the Common Room with vulgar swearing and dick jokes until somebody managed to shut it off. People still remark that the puns were pretty damn clever.
I got shit to do
