Assuming anyone is actually going to take the time to read this, here are the things I want to let you know. My name is Tyler Steven Lyle and that is the only way I actually like my name. I absolutely love creepy, scary, horrifying, terrifying things. Creepypasta, horror movies, old abandoned places, urban exploration, scary situations and good old fashioned ghost stories are my lifeblood. Slender Man and his many different incarnations, especially the Operator in Marble Hornets, is one of the most delightfully creepy creations of all time. I am unhealthily obsessed with the Slenderverse. Mr. Creepy Pasta and myuu on YouTube are a major part of my life. Slimebeast is my favorite creepypasta author and Stephen King is my favorite published author. My favorite book of all time is "House of Leaves" by Mark Z. Danielewski. I'm also a huge fan of Breaking Bad, Lost, House M.D., Sherlock, Supernatural, The Walking Dead, Dexter, Firefly, The Simpsons, Bob's Burgers, Family Guy, and How I Met Your Mother. My biggest goal in life is currently to create and direct a successful horror / drama Slender Man series-show on YouTube by the name of "Mossy Creek." I already have a substantial part of it written. If only I had my own laptop, a high quality camera, time, money, and a cast & crew to get started...But one day it will happen. I am determined. One of my favorite people on the planet is Olan Rogers, a director and actor on YouTube. He is a huge inspiration to me and I look up to him a lot. I am an avid reader, a gamer, a moviegoer and critic, a photographer, a cook, a poet, a director, and a broken soul. I am always thinking about something. Probably overthinking, to be honest.I suppose that's enough for now. If you want to know anything else, ask me anything. Absolutely anything. I am an open book. Namaste!

does your period ever come late and you start to wonder if you’re pregnant despite the fact the most intimate thing you’ve ever done is shake hands?
DO GIRLS REALLY THINK THIS
that whole mary thing really freaked us out tbh
I think one of the main problems with society today is that freshmen in high school are viewed as immature teenagers who are not mentally or emotionally prepared to smoke, drink, drive or have sex, and yet everyone expects them to be mature enough to decide on a career that they want to pursue for the rest of their life. Seems legit.
Okay, okay, I’m going to tell you what Hermione sees in Ron.
A trio is a balancing act, right? They’re equalizers of each other. Harry’s like the action, Hermione’s the brains, Ron’s the heart. Hermione has been assassinated in these movies, and I mean that genuinely—by giving her every single positive character trait that Ron has, they have assassinated her character in the movies. She’s been harmed by being made to be less human, because everything good Ron has, she’s been given.
So, for instance: “If you want to kill Harry, you’re going to have to kill me too”—RON, leg is broken, he’s in pain, gets up and stands in front of Harry and says this. Who gets that line in the movie? Hermione.
“Fear of a name increases the fear of the thing itself.” Hermione doesn’t say Voldemort’s name until well into the books—that’s Dumbledore’s line. When does Hermione say it in the movies? Beginning of Movie 2.
When the Devil’s Snare is curling itself around everybody, Hermione panics, and Ron is the one who keeps his head and says “Are you a witch or not?” In the movie, everybody else panics and Hermione keeps her head and does the biggest, brightest flare of sunlight spell there ever was.
So, Hermione—all her flaws were shaved away in the films. And that sounds like you’re making a kick-ass, amazing character, and what you’re doing is dehumanizing her. And it pisses me off. It really does.
In the books, they balance each other out, because where Hermione gets frazzled and maybe her rationality overtakes some of her instinct, Ron has that to back it up; Ron has a kind of emotional grounding that can keep Hermione’s hyper-rationalness in check. Sometimes Hermione’s super-logical nature grates Harry and bothers him, and isn’t the thing he needs even if it’s the right thing, like when she says “You have a saving people thing.” That is the thing that Harry needed to hear, she’s a hundred percent right, but the way she does it is wrong. That’s the classic “she’s super logical, she’s super brilliant, but she doesn’t know how to handle people emotionally,” at least Harry.
So in the books they are this balanced group, and in the movies, in the movies—hell, not even Harry is good enough for Hermione in the movies. No one’s good enough for Hermione in the movies—God isn’t good enough for Hermione in the movies! Hermione is everybody’s everything in the movies.
Harry’s idea to jump on the dragon in the books, who gets it in the movies? Hermione, who hates to fly. Hermione, who overcomes her withering fear of flying to take over Harry’s big idea to get out of the—like, why does Hermione get all these moments?
[John: Because we need to market the movie to girls.]
I think girls like the books, period. And like the Hermione in the books, and like the Hermione in the books just fine before Hollywood made her idealized and perfect. And if they would have trusted that, they would have been just fine.
Would the movies have been bad if she was as awesome as she was in the books, and as human as she was in the books? Would the movies get worse?
She IS a strong girl character. This is the thing that pisses me off. They are equating “strong” with superhuman. To me, the Hermione in the book is twelve times stronger than the completely unreachable ideal of Hermione in the movies. Give me the Hermione in the book who’s human and has flaws any single day of the week.
Here’s a classic example: When Snape in the first book yells at Hermione for being an insufferable know-it-all, do you want to know what Ron says in the book? “Well, you’re asking the questions, and she has to answer. Why ask if you don’t want to be told?” What does he say in the movie? “He’s got a point, you know.” Ron? Would never do that. Would NEVER do that, even before he liked Hermione. Ron would never do that."
