J.K. Rowling unveiled a new character in the Harry Potter universe Monday, and she’s a stylish songstress who just happens to be Ron Weasley’s mom’s favorite singer.
Celestina Warbeck has never been seen in the flesh in any of the seven Harry Potter books, but Rowling wrote a new story about her excerpted on Today.com and released in full on Pottermore.com.Here’s a hint about Warbeck’s humble half-Muggle origins and her blockbuster music career:
Internationally-acclaimed singing sensation Celestina Warbeck (sometimes known as ‘the Singing Sorceress’) hails from Wales. Her father, a minor functionary in the Muggle Liaison Office, met her Muggle mother (a failed actress) when the latter was attacked by a Lethifold disguised as a stage curtain…
Some of Celestina’s best-known songs include You Charmed the Heart Right Out of Me and A Cauldron Full of Hot, Strong Love. Her fans are usually older people who love her grandstanding style and powerful voice. The late 20th-century album You Stole My Cauldron but You Can’t Have My Heart was a massive global hit.
You can listen to a full track of Celestina Warbeck’s hit single You Stole My Cauldron but You Can’t Have My Heart on Pottermore.com, but you need a membership and you have to “unlock” it first by playing in the Pottermore universe. [TIME]
I really hate being an introvert because I sometimes think “oh hey, I can totally hang out with a bunch of people right now! I can handle it! I hate being alone!!” and then three hours into hanging out I realize how draining of energy it is for me to be around other people and I just want to curl up into a ball and isolate myself for the rest of my life.
Peter Jason Quill, he’s also known as Star-Lord.Who calls him that?
I know some people are just reblogging these posts about what Korra said to Zuko (that he knows Aang better than anyone else) as a joke, but there are people who are seriously bashing Korra for that and honestly… Can people just stop that? Trust me, I love Aang, I love Katara and I love Kataang. Beyond the romance, I absolutely love their relationship. Yet, I see no reason to get mad at Korra for saying what she said. Katara’s relationship with Aang was different of Zuko’s (which should be obvious for anyone who has seen ATLA). Of course Katara knows Aang very well, and Korra knows it. Hell, do you think Korra doesn’t know about Aang and Katara’s relationship? It’s obvious that she does. The point is, Zuko probably knew Aang better in some aspects, while Katara knew him better in others. Zuko said he was often Aang’s counselor, and that makes perfect sense: Both of them were public figures who had to deal with all kinds of problems and political issues. They had different duties and responsibilities, but the importance of their actions was, at least in a way, similar: Their decisions would always affect people’s lives severely. That being said, while I’m sure Aang would eventually get advice from Katara, it’s completely understandable that Zuko would be a better counselor in certain situations. In Korra’s case, she wants to know whether or not she should sacrifice herself to protect the new Air Nation. It’s a decision of extreme importance, and I imagine if Aang were alive he would ask Zuko for advice too. That’s not saying that Katara couldn’t have a say in this. She would probably say the same thing as Zuko, but she was not there in that scene. Had she been there, I’m sure Korra would ask for her advice as well.
Also, stop saying that the show is ‘ignoring’ Katara. Katara’s importance has been acknowledged by the show and the characters several times. In the first episode, Katara is watching Korra’s firebending test and she’s the one who has the final word on whether or not Korra is ready to start her airbending training.(Do you believe she’s ready, Master Katara?) Still in Book 1, Korra heals Bolin and says “I learned from Katara, the best there is”. In Book 2, while Jinora’s soul was trapped in the Spirit World, Kya says Katara’s the only one who can help her. Korra and all the other characters certainly have lots of respect for Katara as a person and as a waterbending master. They know she has a lot of wisdom to share. To sum up, I’m pretty sure Korra admires Katara a fucking lot and would never do anything to disrespect her, so please cut the garbage, people.
"Their relationship started off a little rocky, but they grew to become life-long friends.
*cries* Zukaang Brotp feels have resurfaced again because of the recent Korra episode. I can’t ;A;
I’m twelve years old again.
Someone help me stop laughing, it hurts.
