Cerebellum and ocular system in the human
In vertebrates, the eyeballs are direct extensions of the brain; that is, they evolved after the brain, and are literally unimpeded access to the cerebellum and cerebrum. Because of this, many ocular tumors or injuries can be far more dangerous to the brain than growths or injuries on any other part of the skull.

"Landon and I live just a block away from each other and he has become one of my best friends, so we hang out all the time. He comes from a small family and he grew up in Alberta in a small town, so he comes from a world where he is really used to being alone"

In London in the late 70’s and early 80’s, a clandestine war raged on, unknown by the Muggles, but felt by each and every member of the magical community. Dumbledore’s Order of the Phoenix stood against the Death Eaters of the Dark Lord Voldemort. No one could be trusted and no one was safe.
We all know the story of Harry Potter and the Second Wizarding war, but there is much to explore with the generation before. Every Order member, every Death Eater, every person caught in the crossfire, they’re individuals. They have their reasons, their motivations, noble or not, for why they do what they do.
A Pyrrhic Victory is a highly literate, psychologically-driven Marauders Era roleplay that explores the events of the original war against Voldemort from dozens of different perspectives.
There are plenty of great characters with intensely interesting bios available for auditions! Check them out! Our excellent admin and extremely talented writers make this an engaging and extremely fun community to be a part of! With carefully thought out and intelligent plots and challenges, you’ll never be bored and your writing and character will grow and develop. New members are always welcomed warmly!

do you ever think about the judges for the triwizard tournament trying to figure out who to kidnap for the second task
like they’re all just sitting in dumbledore’s office and karkaroff goes “well word on the street says that krum has a crush on that granger girl”
"damn," says dumbledore, "I wanted harry to rescue her. well, what about the delightful miss chang?"
"no," says bagman, "we’ve got her down for diggory"
"stop sinking my ships," says dumbledore
i am not the story
you have been told.
i am not pure
i am not your fantasy
of an innocent you can corrupt.
you think he took me?
you think i knew not what i did
when i laughed and placed those crimson seeds
upon my tongue?
do not mistake my kindness
i am forest fires and flower buds
i am poisonous thorns and newborn foals
i am death and rebirth—
cross me at your peril.
(you shall find that pretty rose vines
are just as lovely when they wrap tight over your limbs
and shatter your bones.)
my lord, he brings me bloodstained flowers,
and i give him kisses laced with venom
he gifts me graveyards to plant my orchids
and i send him the torn heads of men
who wrong my maidens.
(i teach them combat alongside botany. both are arts.)
he rules with iron fist and i
with gentle touch.
we live and love in a curious harmony
of sweet birdsong
and the tortured screams of sinners.
come springtide i am bound to earth,
to my mother’s sunfilled meadows
her unequivocal, enduring love.
and by the fading light of summer
i return to my lover’s onyx walls
and cimmerian heart.
i cherish both but they know
they would have no claim on me if i did not desire it
for i belong to myself,
i am only my own—
half flowering creation,
half blistering hellfire.
he calls me his lady
but he knows
i am a queen.
"1978. The beginning of the First Wizarding War. It has come on quickly and those involved are fighting between madness and sanity as they are forced into battle, never to return whole again.
We are a mature Harry Potter roleplay with an emphasis on psychological horror. We are not for the faint of heart.”
Hello, everyone! If you are interested in writing and in the Marauders Era of the Harry Potter story, we would love to welcome you into A Pyrrhic Victory. At APV, the writers delve into the darker side of the story, focusing on the war-torn people fighting back against the Dark Lord when he rose the first time around. Whether you give a voice to a Death Eater, a member of the Order of the Phoenix, an Auror, a supporter of either side, a tremulously neutral party, or one of the newly-introduced old blood, the Knights of Walpurgis, the unexpected should be expected. Personally, I have met some of the greatest writers and people here that I have ever known. They make you care for the characters you want to hate and show that those you adore aren’t so perfect all the way through. They challenge you and test the bounds of your writing with characters that tear apart the status quo, and I couldn’t have asked for a better exercise of my ability or better people to write with. Come along and join Rabastan Lestrange and I at A Pyrrhic Victory?
