trans* girls in gryffindor being told they can’t go in the girl’s dormitory (and maybe shown what happens by some cis boy) and then trying it and finding that the stairs DO let them up
Gender fluid gryffindor students falling down as the steps to the girl’s dormitory unpredictably turn into a slide.
you’re a good egg
So far, the marketing tie-ins for the Hunger Games franchise have included songs from Arcade Fire, Taylor Swift, and Coldplay, and a whole fashion magazine dedicated to the movie’s opulent costumes. It’s certainly a lot more impressive than your run-of-the-mill viral marketing campaign.
Unfortunately, some of these ploys are starting to seem a lot like a case of life imitating art. And when your source material is a dystopian story about oppression and child murder, that’s probably something you want to avoid.
For example, it already seemed slightly ironic that unpaid teenagers were helping to drive the early social media campaigns, but then came the official product endorsements from weirdly inappropriate corporations like CoverGirl makeup, and… Subway.
The Hunger Games films are filled with beautiful costumes, hair and makeup, with many of the main characters decked out in gorgeous outfits inspired by designers like Alexander McQueen, but all this glamor is purposefully symbolic of a shallow and wasteful society that gives impoverished teenagers a makeover before sending them to their death. For a series that so heavily emphasizes the dangers of consumerism and vanity, it’s pretty ironic to have so many major public endorsement deals in the first place. CoverGirl’s makeup line (which “celebrates” the 12 Districts that work to support the super-rich Capitol) is basically the equivalent of a Star Wars marketing campaign inviting fans to join the Empire as an entry-level Stormtrooper.

If you read Catching Fire and thought it was about Katniss worrying about which boy liked her more, you’re doing it wrong.
Actually, if you think any of the books were about that—you’re missing the point.
The Clash helps some of their fans to sneak in before a concert.
this is how you do music right.
I love this so much. Like how stoked would you be if a band you loved helped you sneak into a big show of theirs?
I’ve heard this story before and love that they did this. Stop me if you heard this other one:
The Ramones were playing in England and before the show they were hanging out in the dressing room when someone tossed a stone at the window. They looked out to see some young punks who wanted to get into the show but didn’t have money for tickets. The Ramones reached down and pulled the guys up and got them in. Those young punks without tickets were to become The Clash.
Good to hear they kept it going.
