A-Bookworm-thing

The Houses as Bookworms
  • Gryffindor: absolutely adores books but still wishes they read more, takes really aesthetic book photos, doesn’t waste their time on a book they know they won’t like, pretty critical about book to movie adaptations, considers other people’s reviews before picking up a book, reads their books in class even when they probably shouldn’t, loves borrowing books from others
  • Hufflepuff: will plow through book after book and then not read for an entire month, attempts to organize books alphabetically or by colour but in the end just tries to squeeze them in anywhere, probably re-reads more old books than they read new books, only presents they want are books, may not finish books super quickly but loves them nonetheless
  • Ravenclaw: reads books at an alarming rate, can and will read on any form of transportation, wears glasses, instead of listening to music they’re actually listening to audio books, starts reading a good book but then gets distracted by another and completely forgets about the old one, usually critical of the protagonist.
  • Slytherin: attempts to read over 20 books at the same time, ships everything, loves it when they’re friends read a book that they recommend,they have to finish the whole series no matter what, gets defensive when someone doesn’t recognize them as a reader, wants to read all the books their friends have read so they can contribute their own opinions to discussions

We forget books the same way we forget people. We never remember all the books we’ve read, or all the people we’ve met. Only the ones that made an impact remain.
—  May you remember the ones you loved

  • Simon: There's no denying that I have feelings for you that can't be explained in any other way.
  • Baz: *blushes*
  • Simon: I briefly considered that I had a brain parasite, but that seems even more far-fetched.
  • Baz: ....
The Houses as Fairies
  • Gryffindor: has the biggest eyes always full of wonder, their hair seems to change colours in the sunlight and is so long it goes down to their bums, is super curious about the world and always wants to know more, the best flyers, can be super charming and funny but terrifying if you get on their bad side
  • Hufflepuff: definitely can speak to animals, is always bare footed, small and cute with a brilliant smile, their hair is light and flowy and always a mess, loves to play cheeky little pranks but would hate to really hurt someone’s feelings, is smarter than they first appear to be, so relaxed to a point that it could be a problem.
  • Ravenclaw: is obsessed with colours and sunshine and art, aren’t able to lie, they’re tall and willowy with hair that curls in the wind, doesn’t mind embracing human technology, probably wants to save the world, doesn’t have magic but doesn’t need it because they can get by on wit alone,
  • Slytherin: tend to stick with themselves and don’t enjoy mingling with other creatures, their hair changes depending on their mood, is in love with music to the point where they are fully versed in the language of melodies, accidentally creates storms when they’re upset.

Shout out to the readers whose parents and/or family don’t support their reading habits. For every time you were told you are wasting your time filling your head with nonsense and you should be doing something more productive. For all those times they told you they’re not wasting any more money on books for you and for every time they told you to stop wasting your own money on books. For every time they called you weird and blamed books for giving you “ideas”. For all those whose parents wanted proof that you were reading a book for class and not for pleasure. For every time they took away your book and forced you to go do something else and for the times they threatened to throw away or burn your books. To all those whose parents strictly controlled what you read. Your interest in reading is valid. Be a rebel. Read.
