Ron Weasley Was Supposed to Die

By Jennifer GrudzieckiNovember 7, 2011
This is not a joke. J.K. Rowling ADMITTED that she seriously considered killing off Ron Weasley. That's right, Sparklers, not only did she kill Fred, Mad Eye, Dobby, Hedwig, Tonks, Lupin, and Sirius, she also wanted to kill Ron. RON! Can you believe it? I... More  →

Stephanie Meyer Announces Twimore

By Jennifer GrudzieckiNovember 4, 2011
It would be just like Stephanie Meyer to copy J.K.R. and make a Twimore website. Hopefully, she just won't think of it, though. Right? Because this would be a nightmare. But also extremely laughable, I suppose. (You can thank Bluebird_13 for bringing this... More  →

Welcome to Hufflepuff: Condolences from Dumbledore

By Jennifer GrudzieckiNovember 3, 2011
This is the speech that Dumbledore should have made. If Dumbledore was a real person, he would have said this. I am sure. I mean, everyone knows that Hufflepuff gets a bit...ignored. And for all you Hufflepuffs out there: I'm sorry. And so is Dumbledore. Okay,... More  →

Sorry, You Have to Like Justin Bieber Now

By EmmaNovember 3, 2011
We admit it: we were scared of this video. We recently watched another awkward white person freestyling, and the experience left us traumatized and shaky. So we were already cringing, preemptively, as we pressed PLAY. But then our winces turned to wonder! He is NOT... More  →
