I think it’s nice that Voldemort always waits until the end of the school year to try and kill Harry.
Despite his flaws, Voldemort really cares about Harry’s education.

Each designer has a signature piece which represents their whole aesthetic, and in my mind this corset from Alexander McQueen Fall/Winter 1996 is quintessentially everything that Lee stood for. The lilac silk faille corset was covered in a web of black lace and embroidered with beads, inspired by the Victorian age (it was symbolic for mourning) as many of McQueen’s earlier pieces were. Its sharp high neck obstructed the view of the model and had a look as if it belonged to the villain of some twisted fairytale, making the piece raw and unapologetic, but also added a kind of melancholy. This piece is alluring but not particulary conventionally beautiful, which is one of the things that I admire about McQueen’s work; he has this innate ability to find beauty even in the darkest of places, to give ugliness a new kind of attraction. This artistic eye lead McQueen to create an unmatched legacy of haunting collections that will go down in history. image via.
Pisanki are intricately decorated Easter eggs which have been part of the Slavic tradition for centuries. The oldest example of a pisanka in the Polish region was found in Ostrówek and is believed to be 900 years old. Even prior to the arrival of Christianity, the egg had long been a symbol of fertility and spring, which brings new life into the world. In the context of Christianity, the Easter egg became synonymous with the hope and faith in Jesus Christ through his resurrection.
Pisanki are decorated through different means, and various techniques have been employed throughout the Slavic tradition. The oldest examples had been covered in wax which was then carved to create a design, and later dipped in a dye made from onion peels. Different modes of decoration have yielded a variety of Easter egg art. Beets, flower petals, oak bark, and rye are employed to create colors when making kraszanki. Drapanki are decorated through careful etching into the the surface of a dyed egg shell, and pisanki are artfully hand-painted into various Slavic motifs. Creating naklejanki involves gluing scraps of paper, flower petals, and other decorative materials to the eggshell, while oklejanki are adorned with bulrush pith or yarn. Probably the most intricate and time-consuming are pisanki ażurowe, or wydmuszki. Raw eggs are emptied of their contents through a carefully created opening, while preserving the shape of the egg. The shell is then decorated by drilling very small holes in the surface to create a lace-like look.
In the past pisanki were strictly a tradition cultivated by women, and men were not allowed inside the house during the process as it was believed they had the power to cast a spell on the eggs and cause bad luck.
“I love that side of Will,” Dancy says. “He’s such a superficially unsympathetic character because he keeps everyone at arm’s length. And then you see him in his home with his dogs and that instantly lets you understand who he is, for real.” [x]
