I was Re-watching Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and I realized that the Dursleys not only failed Harry (which they did majorly), they failed Dudley as well.
By spoiling him and enabling him to bully and belittle others from such a young age they are partly what made him the way he was.
Like how they showed him to be greedy by showering him with presents on his birthday and not objecting or telling him he should be grateful when he complained and asked for more.
Or by turning the other way (and even encouraging him) when he bullied other children, especially Harry.
It was their responsibility to teach him right from wrong and they failed.
I am not saying Dudley is completely innocent or that he is stuck being a greedy bully but they certainly didn’t do him any favours.
“Dumbledore paused, and although his voice remained light and calm, and he gave no obvious sign of anger, Harry felt a kind of chill emanating from him and noticed that the Dursleys drew very slightly closer together.
'You did not do as I asked. You have never treated Harry as a son. He has known nothing but neglect and often cruelty at your hands. The best that can be said is that he has at least escaped the appalling damage you have inflicted upon the unfortunate boy sitting between you.'”
― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

I’m just trying to deal with the fact that this implies that Dean and Cas have gotten into arguments over Dean trying to label him…
#honestly it’s the casual ‘we’ that gets me #it’s not ‘you’d gotten over’ it’s we #like there were nights when they’d sit up together talking about it #crossed legged on a mattress passing a bottle back and forth #dean getting angry and saying fuck this fuck you and getting up #and castiel pulling him back to bed laying on top of him like a drunk horny cat #and dean going soft and quiet under him saying #be whatever you want cas i don’t give a fuck #we we we we we we #you could put a hundred words in his mouth in this scene #that would not speak so many volumes as one small ‘we’ (via robotmango)
The Doctor cares.
This has given me an inexplicable need for a companion to carry the Doctor like this.
My train ride on the Southern Railways 630. This is my third trip from Attalla, Alabama to Chattanooga, Tennessee on the 630. It’s aways a lot of fun.
630 was used on Southern in regular freight service until it was retired in 1952. December of that year, 630 and 722 were purchased by the East Tennessee and Western North Carolina Railroad and numbered 207 and 208 respectively. In December 1967, both locomotives were traded back to the Southern for use in their steam excursion program and restored to their former identities in return for a pair of former Central of Georgia Alco RS3s. The steam locomotives headed main lineexcursion trains over the entire Southern system until 1983 when both were retired again from the Southern in favor of larger power. They both were leased to theTennessee Valley Railroad Museum. 722 was later loaned by Southern’s successor Norfolk Southern Railway (NS) to the Asheville Chapter of the National Railway Historical Society of Asheville, North Carolina. TVRM ran 630 until 1989 when it was yet again retired. 630 was donated to TVRM in 1999 by NS. Shortly thereafter, 630 entered TVRM’s restoration shop (now Soule Shops) and underwent an extensive ten-year restoration, complete with frame work and a running gear overhaul. 630 returned to regular service on TVRM in March 2011 and is participating in the 21st Century Steam program instituted by Norfolk Southern. The locomotive has toured several states within the railroad’s reach in 2012 and 2013 for this program, including Alabama, North Carolina, and Virginia.
Pere Marquette 1225 pulling the North Pole Express
North of Elsie, Michigan

Pere Marquette 1225 is a 2-8-4 (Berkshire) steam locomotive built in 1941 for the Pere Marquette Railway by the Lima Locomotive Works in Lima, Ohio. During its original service life it hauled steel and wartime freight between Detroit, Saginaw, Flint, and northern Indiana steel mills. The locomotive was retired from service in 1951.
In 1957, 1225 was saved from the scrap heap and put on display at Michigan State University. In the early 70’s a student group was formed to work on restoring the engine to operability. In 1978 the Michigan State Trust for Railway Preservation was formed and assumed ownership of the locomotive.
In 1983, 1225 was moved to its current home at the former Ann Arbor Railroad workshop complex (now the Steam Railroading Institute) in Owosso, Michigan. The restored engine first moved under its own power in 1985. Its first excursion run was in 1988.
For the 2004 film The Polar Express, 1225’s blueprints were the prototype for the locomotive image, and its sounds were also recorded for use in the film. Appropriately enough, the locomotive’s road number is 12-25, Christmas Day. The film was based on the Caldecott Medal-winning book of the same name, written and illustrated by Chris Van Allsburg. Van Allsburg grew up in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and recalled visiting the 1225 as a boy – and even playing on it – when it was on static display at Michigan State University.
In 2010, the locomotive underwent its 15-year Federal Railway Administration inspection and began a multi-year restoration of its firebox.
Just last month The Pere Marquette 1225 returned to service and will be running weekend excursions as “The North Pole Express” through Christmas.
