  1. Hermione good. Ron bad. How predictable. Hermione throws something in Ron’s face, yas, slay queen. Ron does it, toxic masculinity. This fandom has become awful.

  2. Oh my gosh, I’m from Elkton, like Kristy! I live in Arlington, VA, now. But I am oh-so-familiar with the trying-to-describe-where-it-is routine. “It’s along I-95 just before you hit Delaware. Just west of Delaware and south of PA.” *Blank stares in return.*
