oh my fucking god

so i’m reading this harry potter fic

and every now and then there are words like “arseented” and “marseaging” and “arseistance” and i was trying to figure out what the hell is going on

finally i got to the word “parse” and figured it out

they’re american so after they wrote it they did a find and replace to change every “ass” to “arse”

i can’t stop laughing omg

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Poet

"Nam Sibyllam quidem Hogwarti ego ipse oculis meis
vidi in turrem pendere, et cum illi pueri dicerent:
Σιβυλλα τι θελεις; respondebat illa: Θελω ενα ποτο.”

For Albus Dumbledore
il miglior mago

Sometimes I forget I did this.
