Oh, and I found this on the internet.
The explanation behind Dumbeldore’s famous 4 words. Possible cluuueees! :D
- “Nitwit:” Ravenclaw is the house of witches and wizards of greater intelligence. As a rule, Rowena’s children will think of those not selected for membership in their select group as “nitwits” or dummies.
- “Blubber:” Blubber, in contrast, is a word used on playgrounds in the English speaking world for “fat.” It is disparaging because children use it to be unkind to their peers who are heavier than the average kid and probably less athletic. Gryffindor, the jock or frat house, sees the “other” as less physically bold or courageous, for which condition, an eleven year-old would probably find “blubber” a handy signifier.
- “Oddment:” This is a word from the world of sewing and fabrics. An oddment, if memory serves, is the remainder from the bolt of cloth, a remainder not large enough to be usable in making anything significant. Slytherins are lovers of “pure-blood” and, in this, “wholeness” or “integrity.” The “other” to a Slytherin is any witch or wizard born with insufficient purity, an insufficiency that makes them an oddment of less, even no value.
- “Tweak:” Hufflepuff is the Hogwarts House for magical folk who were not smart, bold, or pure enough for the three Houses described above. From Malfoy’s comments in Madame Borkin’s in *Stone,” they seem to be the dustbin house, where the nobodies wind up. Cedric’s success in *Goblet* also suggests that glory is something of a stranger to Hufflepuff champions.
i wore my luna necklace to work the other day and my boss was like 'WHY ARE YOU WEARING A WINE CORK LOL'
and i had to explain the whole thing to him, idk. there’s like one person at work who likes HP as much as i do.
i just relate to Luna’s character, in lots of ways. i’m just the odd one among all my friends, and i feel a lot of the time that i’m judged for that. so that i would have to actually call someone’s attention to me to make them listen, as Luna does to Harry in the most recent film.
yeah. i was teased a lot in school for being different, but i’ve grown to love the person i am, and to just be me because i’m perfectly content the way i am, even if others aren’t.
so i think that’s why i love her character so much.
Just realized I should’ve looked at the bottle more carefully, it somehow ezsaped my attention that Ambien and alchol shouldn’t mix. It’s a bit trippy. tehw alls keep running into me. Not very nice of them.Gonna go watch a movie, nihgt twitter! love and ↨♥♥♥ to you alll
edit: tried to fixz typos but just made more so i give up before i forget hwo tos pell my name.
Remember "Nitwit, blubber, oddment, tweak"? Well...
Here’s an amazing article that explains it all, omg, guys read it, wow, it makes so much sense now.
