Greetings! The name is Alex and these are the ramblings and fangirling of a twenty something Canadian grad student who loves history, musicals, several fandoms (namely OUAT), and puppies...because who can resist puppies? I REGRET NOTHING!

 

me: i don't even care. i'm not going to talk about this anymore.

Are they knocking each other over the head with guns??!?

Late medieval soldiers hadn’t quiiiite gotten the hang of combat with firearms.

Hell, even when we got to flintlocks people still used them as clubs when due to the reload.
They pretty much went “Fuck it” and charged each other.

this is some warhammer shit right there.

Using firearms as close-combat weapons has been done pretty much as long as firearms have existed, and only really stopped recently due to the advent of widely-available semi-automatic weapons (and is probably still done ad hoc if the enemy catches you while you’re reloading). 
I mean, if you had a weapon which takes the better part of a minute to reload and your enemy was literally there, wouldn’t you just hit him? Especially if you knew the weapon was durable enough to be used in melee.

You’re still smacking the fucker over the head with a heavy wood and metal object. The fact it’s a hooty-tooty-point-and-shooty makes little difference when you’re getting beaten to death.

Harry was the favorite kid and he wasn’t even an official part of the family

Because Molly knows exactly how the Dursleys treat him. There’s no way Ron wouldn’t tell her. And Molly Weasley is a Mother. She gets a capital M because she is goddamn phenomenal at what she does. When she hears Harry Potter is on the train to Hogwarts in Book 1, her reaction isn’t to be starstruck. It’s to say “that poor dear had to come here all on his own.” Molly Weasley loves harder than anyone. She loves like it’s her sole reason for being. And when she hears there’s a poor boy who has never known love his whole life… how could she not?

He’s a family man. He has a good relationship with his brother and parents and adores his wife and son. He also takes steps to prevent pictures of his son from ending up online.

He married his teenage sweetheart and admires her so much.

He’s social with eveyone. He’s that guy that makes everyone…
