Sirius had to admit, Hogwarts was creepy when it was silent. He glanced at his watch; 5:57am. Four minutes since he had decided to sneak out from the Gryffindor dorms. He had lain in his bed since 5am, unable to fall asleep again. He didn’t know why he had woken up, perhaps by the joint force of James’ and Peter’s snores. He was so bored, he had to go do something and he knew he’d feel bad if he woke up any of his friends, so he decided to go break some rules and sneak out, still in his pyjamas. The sun hadn’t risen yet and the school was shrouded in darkness, the only light coming from the tip of his wand. He made sure to be quiet as he walked down the many hallways, and to keep the wand away from the paintings that lined the walls, so as to not wake them up.

He was walking down a hallway to go prank a particularly nasty teacher in his classroom, when he heard a cheeky giggle he knew all too well. He mumbled a curse under his breath and turned into the courtyard, dashing behind a tree. That damn poltergeist. Apparently he didn’t take any break from causing trouble, even in the small hours of the morning. Sirius knew that if Peeves saw or heard him he’d run to tell the Bloody Baron and Sirius would be in a world of trouble for sneaking out, so he held his breath and kept perfectly still. As much as he liked to make people believe that detentions didn’t bother him, he’d prefer not to get one. He stayed in his spot until the silence reassured him that the poltergeist had gone and he breathed a sigh of relief, his breath fogging up in the chilly morning air.

“Peeves rarely comes down to this part of the castle.” A voice said, making him jump. He looked around for the source of the voice and his eyes landed on you, already in your Hufflepuff robes, sitting under a tree with a book in one hand and your lit wand in your other, your eyes still on the book. “Something or someone must have lured him here.” You said, looking at him now and raising an accusatory eyebrow. He was confused as to why you were sitting on the cold ground when there was a perfectly good bench a few feet away from you, but he shook it off and gave you one of his signature smirks.

“Couldn’t have been me. Though Hufflepuffs aren’t exactly known to be stealthy, must have been you he followed.” He said, enjoying how he made you grit your teeth in annoyance. He already knew he’d enjoy bugging you.

“It couldn’t have been me because I’ve been here since 5 and I come here often and he’s never found me.” You said, trying to keep your calm. You were usually a nice, calm person but the second someone insults your house, your temper shortens by a half. Sirius was surprised anyone woke up that early to sneak out and consequently break many rules, especially a Hufflepuff.

“What’s a Hufflepuff doing out of the den before noon?” He asked, now leaning on the tree, arms crossed. You pursed your lips angrily.

“Wow, in the space of 10 seconds you’ve managed to insult both me and my house twice.” You said.

“It’s truly a gift.” He said, grinning at your annoyed expression.

“Truly.” You grumbled sarcastically, turning back to your book. He took this time to properly look at you. You didn’t seem too bothered by the cold air (and the cold ground you were sitting on) nor did you look tired, even though you had woken up pretty early. The light from your wand was making your H/C hair shine and E/C eyes sparkle, though that may have just been your irritation. Sirius had to admit, you were pretty and he wondered why he’d never seen you before. He had quite an eye for pretty girls, and that you hadn’t caught his or vice versa bewildered him. You looked around his age, which stumped him even more. “Stop staring at me.” You said, not looking at him. His heavy gaze making you feel uncomfortable.

“How old are you?” He asked out of nowhere. Your gaze turned to him at his random question. You decided not to comment on it.

“Sixteen.” You answered, deciding to just answer his questions without much conversation. You really didn’t feel like talking to him, for multiple reasons. The great Sirius Black was known for his trouble and he really didn’t seem like a nice person. So, he thought, you were the same age as him, same year, so how has he never noticed you?

“What’s your name?” He asked. You sighed at his continuation of this strange conversation you were having.

“Y/F/N.” You said.

“Y/F/N…?”

“Y/F/N Y/L/N.” He stayed quiet for a moment, making you gaze at him suspiciously. “Ok, what?” You finally asked.

“I don’t remember you.” He said, looking genuinely distressed. He prided himself in his knowledge of everyone, something he frequently used to his advantage when he wanted something. You snorted, typical Sirius Black, sitting on his little throne, completely oblivious to others. You didn’t really know what you expected though, from a person who finds amusement in teasing others and flirting with girls without it actually leading anywhere.

“I’m not surprised.” You said, giving him a disapproving look. The corners of his lips quirked upwards, completely unaffected by your words.

“And why is that?” He asked, walking over to you and plopping down on the ground across from you, a little too close for comfort. You narrowed your eyes at him and placed your book down.

“Well why should I not be? I really can’t imagine you paying any attention to someone who wasn’t fawning over you or who wasn’t your current victim.”

“A little teasing doesn’t do anyone any harm, Huffles.” You clenched your jaw at the nickname.

“Tell that to the first years crying in their beds because all the older kids just find it so funny that their textbooks keep running away.”

“You’re such a Hufflepuff.” He said, rolling his eyes.

“And you’re just an arrogant Gryffindor. Always the centre of attention, hm?”

“It’s not my fault I’m popular.” You gave a frustrated sigh.

“It’s pointless arguing with you.” You replied. He grinned widely at you. Despite your obvious attempts to drive him away, Sirius was thoroughly enjoying his time with you. You were especially feisty for a Hufflepuff and different from anyone he’s spoken to before. Most girls were flirty and giggly around him and the few that weren’t interested in him, he’d never felt drawn to. “Stop it.”

“Stop what?” He asking, smirking.

“Stop doing that with your face.”

“What? Smiling? I thought Hufflepuffs were all about the smiles.”

“Not when they’re creepy.”

“You offend me, Huffles.” He said, pouting. “I’ve been told I have quite a nice smile.”

“The people who told you that didn’t know how to let you down easily.” You quipped, flashing him a smirk of your own.

“You’re mean for a Hufflepuff.” He remarked, making you groan.

“Stop with the Hufflepuff shaming.” You exclaimed. “Hufflepuff is a great house.”

“Yeah, I’m sure it is. Wasn’t it Helga Hufflepuff who literally said ‘and I’ll take the rest’ when the founders where creating the houses?” He asked, raising his eyebrows at you. You glowered at him. You were actually starting to have an okay time until he said that.

“Helga Hufflepuff wanted a house where everyone fit in without having to prove that they’re the smartest or the bravest or the most cunning.” You said angrily. “Hufflepuffs are supposed to be kind and brave and loyal, nowhere does it say that they’re boring or lazy or push overs. We are smart and brave and kind and the only area we’re lacking in is producing dark wizards. And the second someone insults us, we protect fiercely.”

“Well, the last part is definitely true in your case.” He said. You gave him a small smile, embarrassed by your outburst. “Nice speech by the way.”

“Thanks, I’m actually considering being a motivational speaker.” You said sarcastically, pretending to be thoughtful. He smirked smugly at you, noticing that you were becoming more comfortable with him.

“You know, you haven’t actually told me what you’re doing out here so early.” He asked. The playful look on your face was suddenly replaced by a bashful one.

“I like to watch the sunrise.” You said quietly. The smirk fell from his face at your genuine response. He lowered his head, his hair falling to hide his face. You bit your lip nervously. “I know it’s stupid, I just-“

“No, no-” Sirius cut you off, reaching for your hand. Your mouth shut, surprised by the sudden sincere emotion. “I mean, it’s not stupid. I-“ He hesitated and paused for a minute. You gave his hand a light squeeze. His gaze flickered away and his hand slipped out of yours, making you miss it’s warmth. You scolded yourself. No, you don’t want Sirius to hold your hand. You don’t, you don’t, you don’t. Sirius cleared his throat, his signature smirk coming back. You frowned, you knew what that smirk meant and you didn’t want it. You liked the genuine Sirius, the one that you didn’t think many people saw. “So do you come here often?”

“Just on Wednesdays. I find that sunrises are prettiest on Wednesdays.” You said. He looked at you amusedly, raising a questioning eyebrow. You just shrugged in response. Suddenly you saw the first rays of light appear over the walls of the courtyard. You shushed Sirius, despite him not actually saying anything, making him chuckle, and pointed behind him. He turned around, scooting next to you and leaned his back on the tree,

You both watched the sun rise, watched the vibrant colours of orange and pink softly spread across the sky. You both saw how the light chased the darkness of the night away and welcome the new day with brilliant hues of red. You couldn’t help the smile that grew on your face. Watching the sunrise always filled you with a certain hope. You turned slightly to look at Sirius, his eyes on the sky. You were surprised to find a look of awe on his face, mouth slightly ajar. He looked open and vulnerable, you had to bite your lip to stop your smile from growing even more at the sight of this Sirius. Expression not hidden by a smirk or a witty remark.

He turned to look at you, catching you looking at him. You didn’t mind though when you saw him reciprocate your large grin. No smug look, no teasing words, just wonderment. You admired how the sun made his dark eyes and hair shine, a stark contrast to his usual ‘dark, bad boy’ look. What you didn’t know was that he was marvelling at you too, how your beautiful smile lit up your kind and passionate face and how your hair swayed slightly in the cool morning breeze. He snapped out of his trance and looked away, deciding to rest his gaze on the sunrise, the other beautiful sight before him.

“You know, Huffles,” he said, “you’re not so bad for a Hufflepuff.” You laughed and nudged his shoulder slightly. This time, he was grinning in triumph for making you laugh. He also didn’t try to push down the way his heart squeezed at the gentle sound.

“Prick.” You retorted, making him laugh at your weak insult. You sat in silence for a while longer. “You’re not so bad for a Gryffindor yourself.” You said, keeping your gaze on the sky despite you feeling his eyes on you.

“I’ll accept that.” Sirius said, giving a deep sigh.

“Nice PJ’s by the way.” You said, glancing at his dark blue pyjamas and making him burst into laughter.

Aaaah, I don’t know. How was that? Was it good? I’ve never tried writing Sirius before. Did I do ok? I don’t know, please tell me. Part 2 maybe? If you want? I hope you enjoyed it and thanks for reading.

Constructive criticism is welcome.

By Glenn Thrush and Maggie Haberman

The latest crisis comes at the worst possible moment for Mr. Trump’s team. His national security and foreign policy staffs have been spending much of their time planning for his coming eight-day trip to the Middle East and Europe — his first major overseas trip as president, and an opportunity, they thought, to reset the narrative of his presidency after the lingering controversy of Mr. Comey’s sudden dismissal last week.

There is a growing sense that Mr. Trump seems unwilling or unable to do the things necessary to keep himself out of trouble and that the presidency has done little to tame a shoot-from-the-hip-into-his-own-foot style that characterized his campaign.

Some of Mr. Trump’s senior advisers fear leaving him alone in meetings with foreign leaders out of concern he might speak out of turn. General McMaster, in particular, has tried to insert caveats or gentle corrections into conversations when he believes the president is straying off topic or onto boggy diplomatic ground.

This has, at times, chafed the president, according to two officials with knowledge of the situation. Mr. Trump, who still openly laments having to dismiss Mr. Flynn, has complained that General McMaster talks too much in meetings, and the president has referred to him as “a pain,” according to one of the officials.

As his staff squabbles, President Trump’s mood has become sour, and he has turned against most of his aides, two advisers say.
By Glenn Thrush and Maggie Haberman

The president’s appetite for chaos, coupled with his disregard for the self-protective conventions of the presidency, has left his staff confused and squabbling. And his own mood, according to two advisers who spoke on the condition of anonymity, has become sour and dark, and he has turned against most of his aides — even his son-in-law, Jared Kushner — describing them in a fury as “incompetent,” according to one of those advisers.

And:

In private, three administration officials conceded that they could not publicly articulate their most compelling — and honest — defense of the president for divulging classified intelligence to the Russians: that Mr. Trump, a hasty and indifferent reader of his briefing materials, simply did not possess the interest or the knowledge of the granular details of intelligence gathering to leak specific sources and methods of intelligence gathering that would harm American allies.

“The president wasn’t even aware where this information came from,” Mr. McMaster said. “He wasn’t briefed on the source or method of the information either.”

Wow.

Edward gets jealous and protective but in the end everything is okay. (Request)

The Cullen family always included you in everything. Ever since Edward and you became a thing. You have grown close to everyone in the family, even Rosalie. “What do I wear? You never specified what kind of ‘party’ this was.” You were currently standing in front of your closet waiting for a response. “It’s just a small celebration, Don’t over do it,” Edward lightly chuckled. “That doesn’t really help me. What about this?” You turned to him holding a fancy outfit wearing a small smile. Edward got up and walked to you, he gently took it from your hands and looked it over. “Anything will look good on you Y/n,” Feeling heat arising you shyly grabbed it back and looked at your feet. “Edward, you’re such a fluff ball. Get out, I need to change.” Leaning down and placing a peck on your forehead he gave you an adoring look, “Alright Love. I’ll be outside.” An hour later you two arrived at the house, Alice was the first one to greet you with a loving hug. “Y/n! It’s so nice to see you!” before you could respond you were lifted from your feet and being twirled around. After being set back down you seen that it was Emmett. “What’s up human?” He asked while lightly laughing. You playfully punched him and he started to punch you, lightly and gently of course. That is until Edward spoke up. “Emmett, That’s enough.” Both you and Emmett froze. Your boyfriend had a authorizing tone and held a serious look. Stepping away from you slowly Emmett went back to stand next to Rosalie. Edward kept staring him down and walked to you, wrapping a arm around your waist. Stepping into the nice clean house Edward parted from you and went to Emmett. “Emmett, can we have a word” He was confused but agreed to speak. “Yeah what’s up bro?” A sigh came out of Edward’s mouth and he looked in your direction. “You and her,” Emmett was stunned. Was he jealous? “You know we are just friends, Why would you think– Wait was it how I greeted her? You can read my mind Edward. I don’t see her that way!” He was right. “You’re right, I apologize. I have to go talk to her,” Emmett lightly patted his back and went back to where everyone was waiting. “Y/n? May I speak with you please?” Standing from your position on the couch you met him outside. “What’s up?“ “I’m sorry, I know I lost my temper back in the house I just can’t stand the way you looked at him,” he sighed curtly before continuing, “I’m sorry Y/n I just don’t like seeing you with other guys, you’re so beautiful and kind that I’m afraid I’m going to lose you.” You stopped him, kissing him softly on the lips. “Edward I love you and only you, there is no need to worry about anything.” “I love you too Y/n.” You and Edward walked hand in hand back into the house. Everyone was in that room pretending that they didn’t hear the conversation you just had. “Is everything alright?” Esme said gently. You looked at Edward and smiled, “Everything’s just fine.”

anonymous asked:

You're telling me that to don't think that the guy who commited mass genocide to save one kid wouldn't be in the house that promotes loyalty? Come on son-

Reasons I think he’s a Gryffindor.

EXHIBIT A

Traits:

  • Bravery
  • Nerve
  • Chivalry
  • Courage
  • Daring

EXHIBIT B

You might belong in Gryffindor,
Where dwell the brave at heart,
Their daring, nerve, and chivalry
Set Gryffindors apart

EXHIBIT C

The Gryffindor house emphasises the traits of courage as well as “ daring, nerve, and chivalry,” and thus its members are generally regarded as brave, though sometimes to the point of recklessness. They can also be short-tempered. Notably, Gryffindor house contributed many members to Dumbledore’s Army and the Order of the Phoenix, although this may have been because the main members made it a point not to associate with other houses.

According to Phineas Nigellus Black, members of other houses, particularly Slytherin, sometimes feel that Gryffindors engage in “pointless heroics.” Another Slytherin, Severus Snape, considered many Gryffindors to be self-righteous and arrogant, with no regard for rules.

[x]

I’m gonna end up writing a 2000 page essay with cited sources at this rate. XD

If the 4 founders of Hogwarts lined up in front of Harry, Godric Gryffindor would be like “THIS ONE IS MINE! FIGHT ME!” and Helga Hufflepuff would be like “I’m not fighting you Godric, Sit down!”

But think of it

○ an older snake that manages everyones temper when their house gets insulted

○ gentle touches on the shoulder reminding the other that it doesnt matter; that they shouldnt stoop too low to the others level

○ that same snake helping the newer ones figure out who they are in the house

○ reminding them that being ambitious and cunning isnt inherently evil. 

○ the older snake making sure the house is united because who else is going to back them up

○ yet that same snake makes their way through the halls

○ they see one of the younger snakes almost in tears from the insults that are being hurled at them. 

○ the older snake rolling up their sleeves and pulling out their wand, pressing it to the insulters neck

○ threatening the other student to never insult the younger snakes, that if s/he had a problem to take it up with them. 

○ once the insulter is scared off, the older snake gently pulls out a handkerchief and hands it to the younger snake

○ making sure that they are okay and reminding them that they arent evil or any of the insults that they were told

○ taking them into a gentle hug and reminding them that their family will always be behind them

Pretty damning. The White House officials say anonymously that Trump wouldn’t have leaked sources and methods BECAUSE HE WOULDNT HAVE PAID ATTENTION ENOUGH TO READ ABOUT THEM.

Socionics Quadra and Hogwarts Houses Correlation

Introduction: This is just for fun. For those who do not understand socionics but would like to, I hope this idea helps to learn about the quadras, in a much more entertaining way. The Socionics Quadras are defined by values, as within each quadra are types that share the same valued functions (see below for elaborative details) Four seems to be such an appropriate number for any type of personality system. Just because I am drawing parallels between them, it doesn’t mean the characters in HP belong to that quadra. For example, Harry Potter is an ESI in socionics, but I have labelled the Gryffindor house as the Beta Quadra (Harry was meant to be in Slytherin really though, only he desperately didn’t want to). So please don’t assume your quadra based on your pottermore test result or something. The purpose of this post is simply to enhance your understanding and for interest in the topic. Of course, the sortings are a simplification, therefore I have assigned a secondary quadra to each house.

Before I begin, here is a functions explanation: 

Delta Quadra = Ne/Si and Fi/Te (equivalents: INFP, ENFP, ISTJ, ESTJ)
Gamma Quadra = Ni/Se and Fi/Te (ISFP, ESFP, INTJ, ENTJ)
Alpha Quadra = Ne/Si and Fe/Ti (ENTP, INTP. ISFJ, ESFJ)
Beta Quadra = Ni/Se and Fe/Ti (ISTP, ESTP, INFJ, ENFJ)



                                             Alpha - Hufflepuff!

“Students belonging to this house are known to be hard-working, friendly, loyal, honest and rather impartial. It may be that due to their values, Hufflepuffs are not as competitive as the other houses, or are more modest about their accomplishments. Hufflepuff is the most inclusive among the four houses; valuing hard work, dedication, patience, loyalty, and fair play rather than a particular aptitude in its membersments” - Wikia

Reinin characterizes this Quadra as “Judicious, Merry, and Democratic”. Alpha types enjoy to discuss highly theoretical concepts as a source of intellectual stimulation and fun rather than for their practical merits. They tend to value logically consistent beliefs and ideas, and behaviour that is consistent with personal values. They typically prefer to perform these ideas in group activity. The participation of group is enjoyable when their is a free exchange of positive emotional expression whilst being in an atmosphere that is pleasing to the senses. Alphas tend to find a discussion unfavourable if the subject regards personal relationships while in a group, especially if this leads to confrontation. They are inclined to be tolerating of minor past misdeeds by others, giving priority to reconciliation and a convivial atmosphere. Investments that require long term commitment and up keep tend to be avoided, instead preferring investments that offer a reliable outcome with minimum involvement (Alpha NTs in particular). An ideal Alpha group situation is the exchange of light-hearted jokes while discussing imaginative ideas, movies, or sometimes sports, all while enjoying pleasant food and drink. Narrating personal experiences usually takes the form of telling a joke; funny personal experiences are preferred over “serious” ones.(Second Quadra: Delta)



                                              Beta - Gryffindor 


“The Gryffindor house emphasises the traits of courage as well as “daring, nerve, and chivalry,” and thus its members are generally regarded as brave, though sometimes to the point of recklessness. They can also be short-tempered. Notably, Gryffindor house contributed many members to Dumbledore’s Army and the Order of the Phoenix, although this may have been because the main members made it a point not to associate with other houses.
According to Phinaes Nigellus Black, members of other houses, particularly Slytherin, sometimes feel that Gryffindors engage in “pointless heroics.” Another Slytherin, Severus Snape, considered many Gryffindors to be self-righteous and arrogant, with no regard for rules.” - Wikia


According to the Reinin dichotomies, the Beta quadra characterizes as “Decisive”, “Merry” and “Aristocratic”. Beta Quadra types are energized in competitive situations where analytical tactics are emphasized. In group activity, a common emotional atmosphere where the whole group participates is generally more favourable. They have more confidence in analyzing the realistic characteristics of situations / people / objects rather than the alternative and could-be scenarios. Beta types tend to give more value to feelings when they are demonstrated with clear emotional expression, and tend to increase the level of their own emotional expression in order to get a reaction from other people, due to the values to extroverted feeling. Beta NFs tend to show a deep concern about social issues and where the world is heading, believing apathy is the significant cause of societal problems (Fe-Ni). Beta types are not inclined to enjoy discussions of personal experiences when the discussion is on a person’s inner feelings. (Second Quadra: Gamma)


                                             Delta - Ravenclaw 


“Ravenclaw House prizes learning, wisdom, wit, and intellect in its members.[3] Thus, many Ravenclaws tend to be academically motivated and talented students. Ravenclaws also pride themselves in being original in their ideas, and methods. It’s not unusual to find Ravenclaw students practicing especially different types of magic that other houses might shun.” 

 Reinin characterizes the Delta Quadra as Judicious, Serious, and Aristocratic. Delta’s value peaceful activities where they have the opportunity to do something useful whilst balancing out their inner world at the same time. To achieve their goals they would rather rely on their own industriousness than group efforts, strong leadership, and speculation. They make a point of of talking about the rationale behind their actions, and emphasize the extent of productivity, the different methods of which things could be done - including areas of personal relationships. In an insightful, non dramatic manner Deltas love to share their own sentiments regarding their personal experiences. However, Delta types (specifically Delta STs) rarely display their deep passions and visions, preferring to talk in more neutral terms. They typically favour wry humour and understatement, rejecting dramaticism and emotional effects. They only take groups seriously when they perform a common productive or restful activity. Delta NFs do not fare well in high pressure situations, but wear out quickly and prefer a peaceful and welcoming environment. (Second Quadra: Alpha)


                                          Slytherin - Gamma


“Slytherins tend to be ambitious, shrewd, cunning, strong leaders, and achievement-oriented. They also have highly developed senses of self-preservation.[7] This means that Slytherins tend to hesitate before acting, so as to weigh all possible outcomes before deciding exactly what should be done.” - Harry Potter Wikia


The Reinin traits that distinguish Gamma from other quadras are “decisive,” “serious,” and “democratic.”.Gamma types take a longer-term view regarding efficiency and profitability, giving lower priority to the short term. Likewise, they tend to aim at the broader benefits of decisions, rather than only at those affecting themselves, giving them an inclination for self-sacrifice. They like to talk about where present trends are leading in terms of potentially profitable events and undertakings. Ideas and concepts must be be firmly connected to factual information. A hard line approach regarding ethical principles is taken with punishment, or revenge even. They like to discuss personal relationships in a realistic manner, perhaps taking an sceptical attitude to the ideology that bad people could ever become good. This quadra does not tend to form or maintain groups based on fun and emotional interaction - especially Gamma NTs (Gamma SFs can conform to the nature of group discussion due to their talents in Fe and Si blocks, although those functions are not valued). Therefore Gamma types reject the idea that it is best to avoid confrontations so as not to spoil the mood of those present, preferring a directness in settling or a least discussing disagreements. It is Gamma SFs in particular (due to Se-ego) that do not see much point in deeply analysing ideas that they see as having little practical application or connection to reality. In group discussion laughter and very obvious displays of emotion are subdued, instead, there is a lot of smiling, amusement with ironic and witty remarks or, when serious subjects or not very happy personal experiences are discussed, a serious demeanour. Even such small groups tend to split into smaller ones; perhaps 3 is the ideal “group” size for Gammas. (Second Quadra: Beta)

Stairs, stairs, stairs.

A handful of unique offerings that you might not have seen before, whether in whole or small detail.

#1 - be damn sure you have used the right hardware for mounting those steps.

#2 - you don’t often see a true stair system in a TH that is perpendicular to the long sides of home. I kinda like this.

#3 (and 4) - pull tabs that are top mounted to the drawer face, tucked under the next stair step, making them minimally visible and removing any chance of them creating a trip hazard while going up or down. I really like this design. They have also routed two parallel lines into each step for traction. Well done.

#5 - I would estimate this system takes up less than a 30 x 30 in. area of floor.

#6 - minimalistic approach to stairs. If it were to indeed be installed into the corner as shown (requiring an access hole to the loft), it would make sense to rotate the 4 x 4 in. riser post 45 degrees to the stairs - it would be most secure that way being easier to attach to both walls.

#7 - minimalist design with alternating steps. This allows maximum rise in a minimal run space.

#8 - a combination of several of the above elements, here with a 90 degree turn. If replicating this particular layout, make sure that window glass is tempered!!

“…  Mr. Elliot was rational, discreet, polished, but he was not open. There was never any burst of feeling, any warmth of indignation or delight, at the evil or good of others… . Mr. Elliot was to generally agreeable. Various as were the tempers of her father’s house, he pleased them all. He endured too well, stood too well wuth everybody.”

To the head of my house:

*raises glass of butter beer* To the head of Slytherin. May you haunt the potions classroom to your heart’s content for many years to come; may you reunite with Lily on the other side and receive a grateful embrace for all you did to protect her son; and may all textbooks at Hogwarts be dog-eared on page 394. Thank you for demonstrating that the very best people do not posses only qualities typically seen in their own house; you tempered your ambition with bravery, intelligence, and loyalty. 

Thank you for making us fall in love with you as Colonel Brandon, making us despise you as Judge Turpin, explaining why you should use a spoon, cousin (”Because it’s dull, you idiot, it’ll hurt more!”), speaking on behalf of God, solving all of humanity’s problems as a paranoid android, breaking Emma Thompson’s heart by giving the necklace to someone else, and taking over Nakatomi Plaza in style (both at Christmas). By Grabthar’s Hammer, you shall be missed. <3 Always.

Seb had finished his chores for the day, but he had a feeling he wasn't done. Everything was clean, from floor to ceiling, but he couldn't shake that feeling that he might have forgotten something. ~Sebby to Bastian

Bastian stormed into the house, his temper dangerously short already thanks to a shit client he had to deal with. As he moved to go to his room, however, something caught his eye; his office door was open. He knew he had shut it before he left, so with a furious growl he called out, “Sebastian!”

House of Cards: Francis Underwood [ENTJ]

Extroverted Thinking (Te): Frank is a master organizer. He’s chief whip for a good reason: anything he wants, he gets by working for it. He organizes events (sometimes at the last minute). He motivates other people. He knows how to make the system work for him, and take control of any situation to turn it to his best advantage. Frank always takes the most logical approach, and doesn’t allow his personal feelings to cloud his judgment.

Introverted Intuition (Ni): He sees the potential in people, and can anticipate their moves. Often, what seems unexpected is anticipated by Frank and staged in advance to generate the outcome he wants from a situation (tossing a brick through his own front window to end the teacher’s union strike). Frank is a schemer and planner who carefully orchestrates everything to suit his purpose and agenda. He reads people easily, discerns their true motivations, and either destroys them with it or brings them under his control.

Extroverted Sensing (Se): His ability to easily shift all his plans to take advantage of a new situation make him formidable. Frank is aware of opportunities in his environment and takes them; including starting up a non-emotional affair with a reporter to help increase her loyalty and moving an entire fundraiser venue outside at the last minute. He has a materialistic streak and isn’t above purely physical experiences for their own sake (the affair is fun in addition to work, and he “tried out” things in college). He has expensive taste.

Introverted Feeling (Fi): Though Frank “loves his wife” more than anything in the world, he often doesn’t tell her so. He throws all his time and energy into the causes he feels are important and that he takes an interest in … politics. Theirs is an utterly compatible, often quite silent romance that to outsiders looks like it takes a backseat to work. Frank never loses his cool, and rarely shows his temper.
