Who doesn’t love a good “Mean Girls” reference every now and then? The Tumblr account Dopey Beauty started this meme/gif of Mean Girl Aurora. And it is a beautiful thing. We’re pretty sure even Tina Fey would be amused by what she’s inspired. Probably. Buzzfeed loves Mean Girl Aurora so much they have an entire article featuring their favorite Sassy Sleeping Beauty insults. We don’t blame them.
This doesn’t need much explanation. We’ve referenced before how much fans are dying to know, “What Happened in Budapest?” based on all those references between Black Widow and Hawkeye in The Avengers. As it often happens, when left to their own devices, fans will create their own headcanons until the official story comes along. This is, easily, one of our favorites yet.

Meanwhile, on Tumblr, someone took the time to solve the problem Professor Snape gave Harry Potter on the first day of class. I think the results will absolutely break your heart. I know it did ours.
This is unbelievable, right? The thought that from the very beginning JK Rowling knew that Snape loved Harry’s mother brings on this whole new understanding for the way Snape treats Harry. He wasn’t just the difficult teacher and Rowling then adjusted Snape to fit the roll of the pining lover, but Snape was always pining after Lily. And he (and Rowling) had taken the time to put very serious clues into subtly revealing it.
For Potterheads, this is incredible. And heartbreaking. If Harry realized this riddle/problem at any point in his life, then no wonder he named his son after one of the greatest headmasters at Hogwarts. It’s a tribute to a formable foe yet friend.
Think on it Potterheads. Stick that in your pipe and smoke it. You can at least blame the tears on something bothering your eyes.
Thanks to our friends Stuck with Harry Until The Very End for the image!

After six years, Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants plans a return to the silver screen. In the early 2000’s, Ann Brashare’s novels about a pair of nearly magical pants and a strong group of girls, resonated with young adult readers everywhere. Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants was so popular, it garnered a movie deal long before the YA rush of Twilight, Hunger Games and Divergent. Alloy Entertainment released Traveling Pants to theaters back in 2005 to moderate success, and a sequel followed in 2008. The actual series is 5 novels and…
Last week (4/1), news broke that film rights for Eleanor and Park had been purchased by Dreamworks studios (we’re cautiously optimistic about that). Meanwhile, in one, tiny corner of the internet, another work from author Rainbow Rowell has already made it on film (and to a computer near you) in a winsome adaptation of Rowell’s second novel, Fangirl. For those of you unfamiliar with Fangirl, for this writer, it was even better than Eleanor and Park — if you can believe that. If you thought the love story of Rowell’s…
Monday night wrapped the epic story of how Ted Mosby Met the Mother of His Children, Tracy McConnell… It turns out, that wasn’t actually the point of the story. Caution: SPOILERS Let’s not drag this out, shall we? On Monday, we saw Barney and Robin get married, Ted met the “Love of His Life“, Marshall and Lily renewed their wedding vows then grew old together in wedded bliss (huzzah). Meanwhile, Barney and Robin got a divorce at the three year mark, Robin went on to…
Japanese engineer brings Potterheads one step closer to playing the sport of their dreams. After an entire generation grew up with Harry Potter, subsequently many of us would have given anything to play the Wizarding sport of Quidditch. How many official teams have popped up at colleges and high schools around the world? More than 300, according to the International Quidditch Association which was founded in 2010 and now hosts nine regional championships, the World Cup, the International Open, Global Games and Quidcon (the only Quidditch convention). In…
Some rather poor planning and a forgetful announcer at a recent panel discussion means Benedict Cumberbatch shone while Jeremy Piven got the shaft. During his appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live this week (3/19), Jeremy Piven (of Entourage fame) related a recent experience at a Critics Q&A event where he was promoting his BBC show Mr. Selfridge, They said, “we’re gonna share the Q&A with Sherlock,” so I said, that’s fantastic, I love it! I go and do some interviews and then they guide me to the stage, in…
Since George R.R. Martin spoke with The Hollywood Reporter, speculation persists the Game of Thrones series will end not with a final season on HBO but a movie (or movies) instead. Since the publication of that infamous Vanity Fair article, emphasizing how the show was quickly catching up with the (as-of-now) unfinished series, discussion has exploded all over the internet. What will show creators D.B. Weiss and David Benioff do if (when) they begin to surpass the story which George R.R. Martin has published? There’s a lot…
