JK Rowling said she would have made Seamus/Dean canon but she felt it would be distracting from the main trio

Literally how much space do you need to have a line about Dean asking Seamus to the Yule ball

Look, I’ll try

"Parvati had tried to ask Dean to the ball, but he told her he was going with Seamus instead."

DONE

Seamus and Dean is canon, you can’t tell me otherwise.

Sometimes I’m sad but then I remember that Jack Kerouac and William Burroughs got into a fist fight over the Oxford comma and then I’m alright.

"

Rather than only telling teens why they shouldn’t have sex, perhaps we also ought to be teaching them why they should. We are doing little to help them differentiate their sexual desires from their desire for attention. Many of the girls I spoke to said sex for them was “an ego thing” rather than a lust thing.

Anne said of her first time, “I guess I didn’t really want to, but I told him I did.” And hers is not an uncommon experience; about a quarter of girls between ages fifteen and nineteen describe their first time as “voluntary but unwanted,” according to the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation.

one of the students in my online class turned in a truly horrible term paper, full of run-ons and other grammatical errors, and did not follow the prompt. instead, she decided to refer to Native Americans in the past tense and, among other crappy statements, referred to Vine Deloria’s work but followed it with extremely faulty reasoning (i.e. rocks and boulders were there religious places because God made them so beautiful and outsiders couldn’t see what was going on). i was a bit harsh in my comments, but they were deserved. princess and i are now meeting with the director of the program tomorrow to go over her paper and why she failed. this will give me a chance to make her feel less attacked (according to the director). poor princess and her racist feelings. ugh. i don’t wanna do it, but i am hoping to get to teach again next summer so i guess i kind of have to -.-
