Think about it. When they first met at Madame Malkin’s, Draco tried to impress Harry. He didn’t know who Harry was and, no offence, but Harry was more than shaggy dressed. That means he was undoubtedly not Draco’s class. But Draco didn’t care. When they met again on the train, Draco offered his friendship. Harry refused. And that’s when the teasing began. Look at it this way: if Harry would be a girl, Draco would pull on his pigtails, would poke him in the ribs and would lift his skirt. But Harry is a boy, so Draco copes with his feelings in a different way. He follows Harry around to blackmail him somehow, he always starts a fight and he is mean to Harry’s friends to rise a reaction out of him. If that isn’t love or at least liking, I don’t know what else is.
Never forget that Ami tricked her classmate who couldn’t read English into thinking the lyrics to “Danger Zone” by Kenny Loggins were important space engineering documents.

Q:What did Jontron do this time? =/
tim schafer, founder of double fine studios, which made gems like psychonauts, grim fandango, brutal legend, the secret of monkey island and other great games posted a tweet with a link to a video talking about violence against women in video games.
jon jafari, who is following tim on twitter, decided he wasn’t happy watching a video that had comments disabled that talked about such a sensitive topic, and decided to make his opinion very well known.
and then as jon’s voracious fanboys were attacking mr. tim schafer on twitter, telling him to kill himself since he’s “outlived his welcome”, jon decides to send this tweet in:
which not only spurned his fanbase on to send hatemail towards tim, but also made tim out to be the bad guy in this conversation.
which he absolutely wasn’t.
Ugh Jontron’s videos are funny I’m so disappointed that he turned out to be a jerk
After seeing the dramatic results from the Ice Bucket Challenge, Indian journalist Manju Latha Kalanidhi was compelled to start something similar, but with an Indian slant. “I felt like doing something more locally tangible. Rice is a staple here,” Kalanidhi told CNN. “We eat it every day, we can store it for months. Why not donate rice to someone who is hungry?”
