“A scarlet steam engine was waiting next to a platform packed with people. A sign overhead said Hogwarts Express, eleven o’clock. Harry looked behind him and saw a wrought-iron archway where the barrier had been, with the words Platform Nine and Three-Quarters on it.
Smoke from the engine drifted over the heads of the chattering crowd, while cats of every color wound here and there between their legs. Owls hooted to one another in a disgruntled sort of way over the babble and the scraping of heavy trunks.”Happy September 1st, y’all!
As it's usual here on Tumblr, there's more info on my "About me" page.
Clara Oswald in “Into the Dalek”
- Favorite thing about this scene: the Doctor acknowledging his part in sending a companion mixed signals instead of blaming their response to his signals on irrational human-ness (and femaleness). Now go back and say this to Martha, Doctor, preferably with an actual “I’m sorry.”
- Least favorite thing about this scene: fandom missing the point and continuing to insist that Clara’s a horrible shallow person who just wanted Eleven to be her boyfriend and dislikes Twelve because of that

"I’m the lucky lady that was asked to do this wonderful movie… it’s one of those breaks in life, one of those breaks in your career. I knew it then and I know it now." - Julie Andrews
This Day In History: The film adaptation of Mary Poppins was released by Disney on August 27, 1964
The author of the original book, P.L. Travers, was not thrilled with the film to say the least, but she did go on to write several sequels to the successful story. Did you know one was a cookbook?
