Why Bill is the coolest Weasley brother

Here are just some of the ways Bill Weasley shows he is the absolute cat’s pyjamas. Which, in case you were wondering, is far better than the ghoul’s pyjamas…

“Bill was – there was no other word for it – cool.”
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

He’s a curse-breaker for Gringotts

The job title alone sounds pretty awesome. Not only does Bill have goblins for colleagues – notoriously tricky customers – but he also gets to do the majority of his work amid the pyramids of Egypt. He’s pretty much the closest the wizarding world has to Indiana Jones.

He showed us that it’s cool to be clever

Obviously we already have Hermione flying the flag for bookworms everywhere, but Bill is a very smart fellow too. He also seemed a little more cavalier about his intellect than Hermione, who has a Boggart that tells her she’s failed all of her exams and literally turns back time to make all of her lessons count.

Meanwhile, Bill has O.W.L.s coming out of his ears and a Head Boy badge under his belt with seemingly no stress whatsoever. No big deal.

He has style to boot

Mrs Weasley may be in a constant battle with her eldest son regarding his aesthetic choices, but when Harry first claps eyes on Bill’s long ponytail, fanged earring and dragon-hide boots, he deems that his clothes ‘would not have looked out of place at a rock concert’.

Just imagine, for a moment, being Bill Weasley’s rock concert companion; you’d score so many cool points just by being near him. Imagine the inevitable crowdsurfing.

He mocks Percy’s cauldron bottoms

Only Percy Weasley could discuss the topic of cauldron bottoms with such regularity and still manage to keep a straight face.

Naturally Fred and George can be counted on to relentlessly mock Percy and his stiff-collared approach to his new Ministry job, but it is in fact the eldest Weasley brother we can thank for first mocking Percy’s cauldron bottom report – and he even manages to do so while having a mid-air table battle of epic proportions. Classic Bill.

He’s patient with Mrs Weasley’s fussing

We all know how annoying it is to be fussed over by your family, and Mrs Weasley’s niggling of Bill for his appearance must get irksome. That’s if you’re the sort to be irked though, which Bill clearly isn’t.

During one such conversation with his mother, when Molly protests that Bill’s earring isn’t appropriate for work, he puts paid to her argument with a simple, ‘Mum, no one at the bank gives a damn how I dress as long as I bring home plenty of treasure.’ Bill one, Molly nil.

He knows when it’s time to spring into action

Though he’s Mr Laidback the majority of the time, Bill still knows when it’s time to act. When the Death Eaters make an appearance at the Quidditch World Cup, Bill is immediately ready to aid in opposing them.

In the aftermath, although injured, his arm bleeding ‘profusely,’ Bill’s only concern is if the person who conjured the Dark Mark was caught. That’s our guy.

Even Rita Skeeter doesn’t get to him

Some of our toughest cookies have taken the cruel words of Rita Skeeter and her poisonous quill to heart. Hermione, who rarely takes notice of what idle gossips say about her, was reduced to tears by Rita’s slander; Hagrid, the man who befriends bloodthirsty beasts of all shapes and sizes, resorted to hiding out in his hut thanks to her unkind words.

But Bill? Please. He brushes aside being branded a ‘long-haired pillock’ with the greatest of ease.

His wife is amazing too

Almost every other guy in the series had fawned haplessly over the beautiful Beauxbatons student and Triwizard champion Fleur Delacour, but the second she sees Bill Weasley, it’s game over.

As Fleur is ‘eyeing Bill with great interest,’ is he all a dither? Of course not. By playing it far too cool for school, Bill gets the girl effortlessly. Well played, Weasley, well played.

He’s calm in the face of adversity

When Voldemort returns and everyone is, understandably, going to pieces just a tad, even Dumbledore doesn’t seem as brimming with joy as usual.

While Dumbledore enlists people with their duties, worried about the logistics of getting word to Arthur, Bill cuts the Headmaster short with a simple, ‘Leave it to me,’ followed swiftly by a clap of the hand on Harry’s shoulder, a kiss on his mother’s cheek, a swish of his cloak and an admirable striding exit. Now that’s how it’s done.

He took a brutal werewolf attack in his stride like an absolute champ

When Bill is mauled by Fenrir Greyback, he’s scarred for life. This would be enough trauma to drastically alter even the strongest of people.

However, while paying visits to the recovering Bill, Harry observes that ‘in personality he seemed just the same as ever. All that appeared to have changed was that he now had a great liking for very rare steaks.’ Fenrir who?

My dad and his favorite child, Miss Cleopatra. Miss Cleo only eats fresh salmon or lunch meat out of tiny bowls that are placed gentle in one of the 4 cat beds she has around the house. Miss Cleo lives better than any of us ever have of will.

Geoff: EVERYBODY SHUT THE HELL UP, I can’t focus on being depressed with all of you shouting at the same time

Jack: okay everybody, we’re building a fucking fort out of our chairs. Adam, get the scotch tape!

Ryan: look here’s a picture of that caterpillar I found underneath my bed. i placed it in a box in my room. I named it Bob. I love Bob. ANDY SHUT UP, Bob is better tHAN YOU!

Trevor: shhhh shut the fuck up, I’m trying to throw peeps into Donny’s backpack without him noticing. wHY you ask? BECAUSE I CAN!

Matt: so I built a mini replica of the Addams Family’s house with a bunch of leftover superglue. does it look okay? should i add more windows???

I hope someday you’ll find someone that has a better playlist than mine - songs that will never let you miss him. A sweeter version of me, I hope. Someone who will never forget to remind you that among all these beautiful roses, you don’t have to be one. If you choose to be a lily or a sunflower, he will wholeheartedly support you and will always appreciate you for who you are. Someone who will love you more than you could ever love yourself. I want you to be happier. I hope you could find someone who never shouts on arguments. A midnight talker, an all day companion, a dreamer, a dog or a cat person, an admirer of sunsets and waking up next to you. All the things you wished I should be but couldn’t be. I hope he sends you voice memos just so you wouldn’t forget his voice. Someone who will sing you to sleep and will give you a morning forehead kiss. a better version of what you used to love.

I Iove Abby. She is so sweet, fluffy, and sassy. Everything is a little better with her. It’s tough not having a cat in Milwaukee. I think the kids I nanny would enjoy a cat like Abby. She is demanding and not a fan of being held, but I swear she knows when I am not okay, because at my worst moments I can always find her and she lets me hold her a little longer than usual. (plus, she hates my dad as much as the rest of us if not more)

U know who in the west wing universe would be a r good president? That’s never really talked about regarding presidents? 

Donnatella Moss

Josh wants to be the guy the guy counts on–Well hello DC power couple. Donna, who absorbs info like a sponge, is just so damn competent and brilliant and smart and can grasp difficult concepts v easily and translate them into things that the average American can understand without losing the nuance of policy, like the cats and the Supreme Court.

And CJ said it herself :“Josh isn’t ever going to find an assistant better than you” CJ has worked in a myriad professional industries and made over 500k a year and is the goddamn US Press Secretary and for the fact that the deputy chief of staff will never find a better assistant than donna

Like……this isn’t some podunk law firm in the middle of nowhere this is the white house. A West Wing job. To say no one would be better means out of tens of thousands of people who would kill for that job would not be better than donna (honestly there’s even an episode addressing it being Josh Lyman’s assistant is better than getting a Master’s and Donna’s starting salary at that website was what she assumed the total budget would be. That’s how valuable pre-Santos era Donna is considered to be). She hears and she absorbs and she retains and she’s able to apply that information–remember when she knew the exact filibuster rule, with the Stackhouse ep?

And Donna can publicly speak–we’ve established with Leo (and plenty of other people) that some people just forget almost everything in front of a camera or a crowd, or in a debate type of setting, or just look bulldogish and antagonistic(can you say the plot of the pilot?). It just isn’t for everyone. But this is what Donna did, for two campaigns and even as Josh’s assistant. Remember when he sent her to North Dakota to deal with people who wanted to eliminate ‘north’ in ‘north dakota?’

Once she quits she gets almost as good as Josh in like a year and sure, there’s few complications, yeah. But hey Bartlet had his riding into a tree affair. Donna has her yelling at a chicken debacle.

And also the trip abroad. Like she doesn’t like to politicize it. But people who are like “oh she hasn’t served in combat” well she was injured in a war zone. Annabeth mentions how the people fell in love with her, wanted to make her story into a movie. There’s name recognition early on right there, something that would make it a lot easier to campaign on as a Senator or a Representative than the average person, get her foot in the door.

And listen people would be much more afraid of pissing off donna than Josh because Josh is always pissed but donnais the one person who can sometimes reel him in. No one is there to reel in donna. She’s charismatic, much more than josh, and people like her. Maybe after shes served a term as the first ladys chief of staff, helen more at ease with being first lady and more of an idea of what she’s doing, she’d run. She’d totally get elected as a Representative with her resume, then maybe serve two or 3 terms, then after possibly run for governor. And then start her election campaign. CHARLIE AS VP LBR CHARLIE IS TOTALLY GONNA GO BACK INTO POLITICS, HE’S TOO GOOD AT IT AND HAS SO MANY CONNECTIONS AND HIS WORK AT THE TAIL END OF THE BARTLET PRESIDENCY HAD HIM HOOKED HE TOTALLY WOULD BE DONNA’S VP.

There are stories internationally about animals that can predict disasters. Dogs, cats, and cows acting strangely days before earthquakes. Birds fleeing before hurricanes. Sharks swimming to avoid storms. Absol is simply another one of these, a valiant-hearted dark type which uses its powers of premonition to warn others of impending doom. But how?

The short answer is that a lot of animals just have better sense than us. For example, many of these animal predictions have been shown to work through hearing. As humans, we can hear frequencies of 20 - 20,000 Hz. Other animals have different ranges of hearing, such as cows who can hear from 16 Hz up to 40,000 Hz. There are a lot of sounds that we, as humans, just can’t hear. For example, the high-pitched dog whistle is out of our range but dogs can hear just fine.

Slightly more relevant lies on the other end of the spectrum. Sounds below 20 Hz, called infrasonic, that we can’t hear. These kinds of sounds are frequently made by earthquake shockwaves, ocean waves, thunderstorms, see where this is going? Absol has a wider range of hearing than we do, such that she can physically hear disasters approaching.

Of course, hearing is not the only way to sense disasters. Dogs are particularly well known for their super smelling powers, such as the ability to sniff out cancer or even monitor a diabetic’s blood sugar levels. We did a whole post on their amazing noses for Growlithe, but it just as well can relate to disasters, too.

Then, of course, there’s the way we do it for weather forecasts: monitoring the atmospheric pressures and humidity. Bees, for example, seem to be sensitive to humidity, which warns them of incoming rain with enough time for them to seek shelter in their hives. Sharks can sense pressure drops of just a few millibars, and abnormal/extreme weather like hurricanes usually causes large fluctuations in the atmosphere.

So again, the short answer is that animals just have better senses than us. Think of it like your bedroom, coming home every day to the same furniture and walls, and then one day, suddenly, everything has been flipped upsidedown – that might be what these animals feel like.  They get accustomed to the normal pressures, sounds, and smells of their environment, and act accordingly when something changes for the worst, by running away, seeking shelter, or for Absol, warning others. 

Absol has better senses than humans, which lets it hear, smell, or otherwise detect natural disasters before they arrive.

Consider this AU: Lena Luthor becomes a superhero

Lena wanted to succeed where her brother failed. 

Lena wanted, in some small way, to atone for the crimes of her family. Her mother certainly wasn’t going to. 

And when your brother uses his power and prestige to become a super villain, what better way to balance it out than for Lena to use her power and prestige to become a super hero?

Kara has no idea who the masked vigilante is that keeps getting to criminals before her. 

Cat is thrilled. Two superheroes? She takes one look at the costume–a dark suit of armor with mask and cape–and immediately notices its resemblance to another hero in Gotham City. So of course, with brand being everything to Cat, she capitalizes on it. 

And Lena Luthor makes the front page, headline: Who is the Batwoman? 

Dear Carter,

My attempts to keep things light and inject some comic relief into what has been a very difficult time for you are going unappreciated.

Noted, Young Grant.  From now on, teenage angst and earnest support only.

I’m so sorry it’s been so long since I’ve written.  I was trying to find a way to see you both, to no avail.  It was wasted time so I return to the written word.  I’m better on paper anyway, just ask your mother.  Your days as a covert spy are almost done, Carter, I promise.  Now that you’re safe and we know where Cat is, you can focus on just spending time with her and helping her get better.  I’ve already asked more of you than I should have.

I know she probably looks like she’s hurting and we’re going to find the people that have done this to her.  She’s one of us now and we take care of our own.

I am going to ask you to give her a message.  You don’t need to write it in your math book. (Honestly Carter, what will your math teacher say?)

OK, here goes:

Only you would consider multiple gunshots an inconvenience.  I will always worry about you, you impossible, stubborn, perfect human so rather than telling me not to, how about you give me a reason to stop worrying.  Carter says you’re a badass, which I already knew.  Prove him right.  Get better.  Come home.  There’s still so much to say.  I hope to see you soon.

So there it is, Carter.  You asked about bullets.  Yeah, your mom was shot, but if anyone can survive it, she can…and she is.  Every second you spend with her will help her.  That’s what will make you a hero in my eyes.  I know it scares you to see her like that.  Being a hero doesn’t mean you aren’t afraid, it means you can fight that fear and do what needs to be done.  The only thing you need to do is be her hero.  Do the stuff she doesn’t know how to ask for.  You and me are really good at figuring out what she needs and I’m not there to puzzle it out.  That’s your job now.

You’re so much like her.

Sending you (and her) a big hug,

Let’s Learn Chilean Expressions

HELLO, DENIZENS OF THE WEB, I bring to you a very special post this stupendous days about Shit We Say In My Country as if second nature because as if Chilean Spanish wasn’t complicated enough, it gets even worse/better when you consider that we speak in slang roughly twenty five hours a day. In case you ever find yourself in a life or death situation that involves, for this or that reason, a Chilean, here’s a decryption list you can use to understand their cocky banter while you lock blades or trade bullets:

  • “Mas weon que los perros nuevos”. Translates literally to “dumber than puppies”. Used to refer to someone particularly stupid.
  • “Buscandole la quinta pata al gato”. Translates literally to “Looking for the cat’s fifth foot/leg”. It’s used when someone is clearly looking for something that they are obviously never going to find in a metaphorical way rather than something physical. For example, “Juan le esta buscando la quinta pata al gato si esta buscando razones pa quedarse con la weona que le puso los cachos” -> “Juan is looking for the cat’s fifth foot by trying to come up with excuses to stay with his girlfriend, who has already cheated on him”. When someone is trying to find a good argument in defense of something when none exists or it has been proven to be wrong, you use this.
  • “Le puso los cachos/cuernos”. Translates to “S/He gave him/her horns” or “S/He puts horns on him/her”. Used when someone cheats on someone else. The recipient of the horns is whoever got cheated on.
  • “Mojarse el potito”. Translates to “getting your ass wet”. Used when you take one for the team, or otherwise make a sacrifice or go through a bad time purposefully in order to accomplish something or to deal with the consequences of something you’ve done.
  • “Le cortaron el agua”. Translates to “they shut off his/her water”. Used to explain that someone is moody or more irritable than usual because their partner hasn’t had sex with them in a while and they are frustrated due to it.
  • “La mano que aprieta”. Translates to “The hand that squeezes”. Used to describe a controlling lover.
  • “Ando con el kino acumulado”. Translates to “I got the lottery accumulated”. Used when someone’s sexually frustrated and hasn’t had sex in a while.
  • “Echar el poto pa las moras”. Translates to “throw [the] ass to the blackberry bush”. It means to cop out or to chicken out of something. “Ese culiao echo el poto pa las moras cuando llego la hora de ir a pelear” -> “That fucker threw his ass to the blackberry bush when the time to fight came”.
  • “Aserruchar el piso”. Translates to “sawing the floor”, as in, using a saw to cut a hole in the floor. It’s used when someone’s trying to steal his boss’ job (as in, literally trying some Loony Toons shit by sawing the floor from beneath them to make them fall)
  • “Weon”. It can be used for anything and everything and it will be understood by anyone versed in the language. “Puta el weon weon, weon” 1st weon is a noun, 2nd weon is an adjective, 3rd weon is also a noun, but denoting a different person from the 1st weon. In this phrase, we are telling someone (3rd weon), that someone else (1st weon) is fucking stupid (2nd weon). This is completely understood and a common phrase in Chile.
  • Nino: *can't find Adrien in a crowd* this calls for drastic measures
  • Nino: *using his hands as a megaphone* LADYBUG IS SUCH AN USELESS SUPERHERO
  • Adrien: wHAT DID YOU JUST SAID
  • Nino: there he i-
  • Alya: dO YOU WISH TO DIE OR SOMETHING
  • Nino: well-
  • Chloé: sAY THAT AGAIN AND I KILL YOU
  • Nino: ...
  • Nino: that works better than expected

Dear Cat,


I’m truly thrilled for you.  What a remarkable opportunity, and knowing your passion for inclusion and representation on our little speck in the universe, there is nobody better suited for the job.  You always did inspire me.  Now more than ever.  It warms my heart to know you will be at the center of defending our country’s most vulnerable.  Supergirl will also be thrilled.  She speaks very highly of President Marsdin.  Don’t worry, I’ll let you break the news.  Your secret is safe with me, Cat.  (I do enjoy using your name… thank you)

Change, it seems, can’t be escaped.  At least I know that this particular change will be navigated with thoughtful care and fierce drive and that I have little to fear.  

I admit I have heard rumors of such shady government organizations.  My sister is an FBI agent, as you know, but her clearance is absurdly high and she isn’t allowed to share much of it with me.  Surely I’ve heard of the DEO at some point in her discussion of the bureaucratic alphabet soup she works in, but I can’t be sure.

Now, for the bad news.  After giving it much thought, I’ve come to the conclusion that I am not the person that should be telling your story.  I know I’m disappointing you in a number of ways, but Snapper would never allow it.  He’d say I’m too close to you, to the story, that my pro-alien bias will color the article.  He’s hired a White House Correspondent recently.  Your story will be safe in his hands, surely.  I’ll stick to pelicans and puff pieces.  It’s a shame though.  I had looked forward to spending some time with you, as well as the exclusive.

You’re still my hero.

Hopefully still your pen pal,

  • me: so like, the logistic between us needing five cats is obvious. we can't have just one because they'd be lonely, so we need to get another. BUT they may not like each other, so, to guarantee none would be lonely, we need a third one, but THEN two of them may like themselves better than the third kitten and then we'd have another lonely kitty, so that's why we need the fourth. but then the two cat logic applies to them, only twice, so we need the fifth kitty to guarantee the other three that may be excluded from the power duo still can be an unity of three. and in case any of this goes wrong, we can just add more cats
