In HBP, Snape is teaching and tells the class to turn to page 213, and read the first two paragraphs on the Cruciatus Curse. On a hunch I got up and pulled out my GoF book and turned to page 213. That is the page where Moody first tells the students about the Cruciatus Curse.
You for me, are a revolving door of shit and i’m suffocating with no air release. When everything you say sends me that much closer to the blade? To suicide? How? How does one redeem themselves of a desire they’ll never indulge, but being haunted by the feeling of it sending them into their own living hell? How does one do it? HOW!?
Me: Can I use the bathroom? Teacher: I don't know, can you? Me: When I was using "can" I was using its secondary model form as a verbal modifier asking for permission, as opposed to expressing an ability. I thought since you were a teacher you'd know that. My bad. MAY I use the restroom?
