actually i think it was the day before

significantfoliage  asked:

The most important MHA question: which of the kids really quietly notes whenever anyone says their birthday and always has a treat for the birthday kid? And it always a surprise because the kid doesn't ask for their birthdays, just listened to other conversations.

OKAY SO

i think Izuku makes notes of their birthdays but i’m not sure he’s the type to actually like.. go out of his way to get them something. like. he’s just gathering info on them b/c he’s analytical like that and that’s just how he is. the actual concept of getting them something honestly doesn’t cross his mind until someone actually brings it up or it’s a few days before someone’s birthday and he’s like ‘OH WAIT’ 

(All Might, similar to Izuku, often forgets birthdays until about the day or so before. he usually has so much on his plate that details like dates and holidays and anniversaries usually slip his mind, but he always tries to make it up as best he can, usually very boisterously)

as for the rest of the class….

  • i think Kirishima is definitely the type to do this. he just quietly makes a mental note when his friend’s birthdays are and he surprises them with a gift and no one ever expects it. it’s always something he thinks is super manly and he always tries to get them something they’d like
  • Iida also does this b/c it’s just the polite thing to do and he’ll get everyone in the class a small, appropriate gift no matter who it is. (usually  it’s something very practical, and he thinks himself very clever for getting them something so useful, tho he does try to match it to their personality) (he may or may not have looked up their birthdays instead of just listening in but)
  • Tsuyu absolutely remembers birthdays and likes to hand-make little cards for her classmates (she’s used to doing this for her younger siblings). she always signs them with a cute little frog doodle
  • shockingly, Aoyama does this. he always makes a note of when someone’s birthday comes up and tries his best to get them the absolute best, amazing, most sparkly gift ever for their special day, b/c any gift from him needs to sparkle just as amazingly as he does. (he usually gets them something in their favorite color) (he does this b/c he really wants to become closer to the class and be on the same level as them and this is one of his ways of doing so)
  • Bakugou also does this but only for the people he actually gives a shit about. but he’s also like….. incredibly bad with giving gifts and showing emotion and being sentimental at all so he usually just tries to be less of an ass to them that day. maybe gives them a couple compliments (framed like insults b/c that’s who he is). tolerates them slightly more than usual. maybe buys them a snack. etc
  • Shouji. he’s got eyes and ears everywhere (literally) so when he hears about someone’s birthday coming up, he’ll get them something small. he tries to personalize gifts, so Tsuyu would get a cute frog plush, or Bakugou would get a cool looking skull shirt, or Izuku would get something All Might themed
  • Jirou. she can listen in on any convo and sometimes she just overhears stuff. she’ll usually just buy some chocolate or candy for them
  • Todoroki. at first he didn’t really pay much attention b/c he just… was so focused on himself and his personal issues and his goals and he didn’t really notice much else around him. but after his fight with Izuku and the incident with Stain, he tries to notice more about the other kids around him, and will secretly try to figure out what they like so he can get them a good gift. he’s super new at this stuff and he doesn’t really know what the proper procedure is, but he really wants to make up for how he was before and he wants to be a better classmate and friend and to make a better impression and he is just so very earnest. (he’ll usually get them something that’s usually a bit… too expensive and extravagant, but still very simple.)
  • Momo. similar to Todoroki, she really just wants to make a good impression and to make her classmates happy b/c she loves being useful and helpful and being nice. she always gets something that’s usually WAYYYY too expensive b/c she grew up super rich and has like no idea that she doesn’t have to spend that much on birthday gifts for her classmates, but she’s just so earnest and she just wants to help and give them a good birthday and none of the kids really fault her for accidentally showing off how rich she is b/c she’s just so cute and earnest and nice and sweet
  • Mic and Aizawa. Mic especially. he always remembers people’s birthdays and tries to make a little party out of it. Aizawa remembers and he usually just gets them something really small (like a gashapon toy or something)

i added a few of the teachers to this, i hope you don’t mind!!!

InuKag Last Day Bonus: Thank You Cynthia

I can’t believe InuKag Week is actually ending today. It’s been such an amazing fun wild seven days, and it’s felt like an avalanche I was snowboarding on from the very beginning on Monday to the last today. 

All the content has filled me with so much InuKag love, I didn’t even think I was capable of loving this ship anymore than I do, but everyone combined putting out amazing effort to post or reblog or submit, it’s almost like we were all together at a week long festival just happy to be around. I’ve discovered so many people from this event, my following list has GROWN exponentially haha. 

Last year I made a post like this thanking the fandom, and trust me when I say none of this is possible without the participation and love of a large group of people supporting us throughout the entire thing. You all are the heart and soul of this machine, and it doesn’t have a purpose without you. 

But this year I want to Thank Someone very special and dear to this fandom and myself:

@inukag aka Cynthia, has given so much to make not only this event, but our corner of the InuKag fandom an incredibly fun and interactive place. Last year when we did InuKag week together, we were both already excited and expectant for InuKag Week 2017, and before we knew it, IT WAS 2017, and she had taken care of ALL the prompts, ALL the edits, she REVAMPED the theme of this site, and from the very start on Monday at midnight, she was checking the tags, answering asks, doing it all while I was sleeping

(And “Family” day btw? I’ve already told you, but it WRECKED ME. Like a damn wrecking ball, Miley Cyrus aside, it ended my life over and over and over again.) 

She can try telling you we were a team today, but if we were a team, she was my leader and I followed a few miles behind in absolute awe. 

She needs 100% credit for this week, and WHAT BETTER PERSON to give credit to for InuKag week if not the sole owner of the canon InuKag url. (Doesn’t get better than this, folks)

Maybe you’ve known her as “towards-tomorrow” or maybe you’ve just gotten to know her these past two years as “inukag”, but I can promise you that if you’ve ever looked up anything remotely InuKag, you have probably liked or reblogged her gifs and beautiful gorgeous edits or analysis essays. Her imprint on this fandom echoes out from years and years ago to the present. 

She’s been patient and tolerant and kind, digging through canon material to explain things to us- us who have no clue what chapter is what. You could ask her “what chapters did Kagome get mad at Inuyasha?” and she’ll pull out annotated pages with highlighted quotes and footnotes. 

This girl spent days and sleepless hours making sure the promos for the InuKag Week 2017 Master Post were perfect- sometimes, sometimes I wish everyone got a behind the scenes look at how she spends meticulous time making sure every frame is perfect, making sure she has the right English verbiage, going through drafts and drafts on her tumblr until she has it just right. Still kicking herself sometimes for it not being as perfect as SHE wanted it to be, even though it’s BEYOND PERFECT to everyone else. 

She spent time thinking “How can we make this as inclusive as possible?”. She thinks of ideas on how to make it so every single person can do SOMETHING as long as they want to and have the means to access a computer or phone. 

This InuKag Week has by and large been even more fun and successful than the last, and I just want to take a moment to Thank You

This fandom doesn’t deserve you, it’s never deserved you. And even when you’re burnt out, even when you’re wondering “is it even worth it”, you pull it through and manage to host an entire week long event that ignites us. 

You are the Queen, and this week would never have functioned the way it has without you. 

(We look professional af Cynthia and it’s all because of you.)

One day you might be making events or sites for big corporate companies (maybe a small indie firm), or sit in a really nice office with a window, and I really hope you remember the impact you’ve made in this VERY LARGE corner of the fandom.

I love you, and thank you thank you thank you. 

There’s still the rest of today to enjoy our favorite Soul Mates, so take a break, enjoy your weekend (what’s left of it!) and look back at all these wonderful people celebrating with us. Bask in it. 

HAPPY INUKAG WEEK!!! <3

- Until the next sappy long post on this blog, Mod: Lali

anonymous asked:

Hi, I remember reading your meta about TG tarot phase, in which moon arc started with the end of Tsukiyama arc, the one with moon kanji in it's name. Do you think the sun arc will start with someone with sun in their name? If name is what it counts, I could only think of two people, first is Amon, the sun god himself. Second is Akira. While most Akira means Light, her kanji means Dawn, just the time before the sun comes out. Thank you & have a good day!

The moon arc doesn’t actually start with the Tsukiyama arc. The Tsukiyama arc is the Tower arc. The moon arc starts right after Arima’s death and is made explicit in ch. 86 (on the Cochlea side). It’s unclear if the Rushima chapters still the Star arc or if we’re already meant to be in the Moon there as well. 

The full tarot arc break down is something like this.

I don't think I've seen much of your ocs before. Could you introduce a few to us? If you would like to that is.

I’ve never introduced my OC’s before, actually!

And it’s because i literally spent two whole years drawing them. So i decided to take a little break from them! But a few days ago Ink and Sarah made me feel nostalgic about my OCs so i started drawing them again!


The three you just saw were Ethan Doskas, Lyra VanBelleghem and Liam Hooligan! Best friends since they were 4 years old! ヾ(。・ω・)シ

They were some of the main characters of a story i was making. But i gave up with it since i had a lot of ideas but no chronology. And making it a story was no fun anymore.

Ethan is a demigod, son of Zeus, Lyra is a banshee and I really can’t remember which creature Liam was. I wrote it somewhere but i lost the file ;v;

Just wanted to let you know I waited to get my helmet before trying my board out! Have a great day!

Glad to hear this! So many young people don’t wear helmets because they think it’ll “look silly” or “ruin their reputation”. Helmets save lives and it’s way cooler if you actually wear them. Have a great time pal, let me know how she rides!

“We spoke to Charlie Day, who’s in the middle of a press tour for Fist Fight, about the decision to finally resolve this for Mac and Day says a big reason for this episode is because they knew it disappointed fans of the series when they did something similar last season, but then took it back.

“Well, I think the season before we had him have that moment and then quickly take it back,” says Day, “and I think there were maybe a lot of people who were sort of disappointed by that, which makes sense. That’s what our show is. You know, these characters are out to disappoint you.”

But, in the end, what was better for society won out even over characters who never stop disappointing us. Day explains, “But I also think with what the sort of message is behind him making that decision, I think it actually does more sort of societal good to finally have Mac make that decision. So we decided, all right, let’s find a way to actually have that happen.”

Wow i cant believe all my posts from last year where i threatened to murder RCG for putting Mac back in the closet worked??? Direct Action works kids 

1. i don’t know how to say this so i’m just going to say it - don’t text me anymore. don’t call me. don’t ask me how i am when you feel lonely. don’t check up on me. don’t tell me you’re doing well. i don’t want to hear it. i don’t want to hear it because you fucking broke me. GOODBYE.

2. hey, okay, sooo i thought i could be friends with you but it hurts too much. not that you hurt me that much. no, i’m okay. i don’t cry in the shower anymore. some nights i actually fall asleep before 4 a.m. but then there’s some nights where i think about you and her kissing and it’s all that’s on my mind for days. no, no, it’s not like that. it’s not that i love you anymore or that i’m jealous. i just hate you for what you did to me. so yeah, anyways, just thought you should know i don’t want to be friends. hope you’re doing well though. maybe our paths will cross again.

3. i told myself many, many months ago that if i wanted this to work, if i wanted us to be friends, i couldn’t talk to you about my feelings ever again. i couldn’t turn every conversation into our failed relationship. so for many, many months, i’ve been letting it eat at me instead. i don’t want it to eat at me anymore and you don’t want to listen to me whine so i think this has to end. sorry.

4. hey, listen: some days i’m fine, but the smallest things get to me. like i’m pretty sure i saw you on her snapchat story. it’s none of my business, but i’m really mad at you for it. i’m really mad that you still talk to that girl you chose over me and you still like all of these girls’ facebook photos but you never like mine. and it’s not fair for me to be mad at you for having friends or being happy, i have no right to be, you didn’t do anything wrong. but it still gets to me, still eats away at me, still makes me want to knock down your door and ask you why the fuck you had to leave, why you had to do anything you did, why i poured all of my love into you that i didn’t have any left for myself and you took it and gave it to somebody else. god, this hurts. i don’t want you to know how badly this hurts but it does. i’m leaving you and taking this hurt with me.

5. hey, hope you’re doing well, but this still feels like a nightmare i’ll never wake up from. and i’m sorry, i’m so fucking sorry, it’s not fair to you to have to listen to this shit because it’s been two whole years and i’m still not over it. and that’s my problem, not yours. it will never be your fault that i’m so goddamn sensitive. i’ve never been able to get over anything and i hate myself for it. please let me heal. please leave.

6. hey, remember the summer where i hooked up with the first guy who wasn’t you, when you had me blocked on everything and i couldn’t see what you were up to? well, i still read my posts from that summer and i was actually HAPPY. can you believe that? i was actually going about my life without you and i wasn’t thinking about what you did to me. but here i am again, thinking about it and the only thing that’s changed is that you speak to me. and i would love to be friends with you, i would, i’ve been trying so hard to be for months, but it’s making me so damn miserable. and i’m so jealous that she gets to be friends with you and i don’t. i’m sorry i’m not her. i’m sorry i never will be.

7. i’ve been ignoring your messages on purpose and you keep texting me again and it’s exhausting to have to ignore you all of the time and feel so guilty about it. i just don’t understand how you just don’t get the hint. so here’s a bigger one: LEAVE ME ALONE.

8. hey, okay, i know this is sudden but i don’t want to hear from you anymore. i don’t want to think about this anymore. i want to move on with my life and there’s no room for you in it. it was stupid of me to think that just because you’ve always been a good friend to me that we can be friends. we can’t.

9. hey. first off, i want to say i’m sorry, i just need to do what’s best for me. secondly, thank you for always being there when i needed you, but i don’t need you anymore. for now, it has to be just me. it feels like i’m breaking up with you and we’re not even dating, but this is it - this is goodbye. forever. don’t contact me.

10. all you ever did was hurt me. fuck you. i don’t want to see your stupid fucking name on my phone anymore. fucking get out. leave.

—  10 text messages i’m afraid to send because i don’t want to say goodbye to you, not again

Tried reading my whole APUSH book and writing down notes 2 days before the actual test. I obviously didn’t finish nor do I think that actually worked lol. The test was easier compared to what I thought, but the type of essay that we got was the only one we never did in class so we’ll see how that goes. I just wanna burn all my AP stuff already. 2 down, 2 more to go! I also have the SAT tomorrow. Why must it be on the same week as AP exams. Just why.

PAX South

So PAX South was this past weekend and it was absolutely incredible. Leading up to this convention, I had no idea what to expect. It was the first convention I was attending after moving out to LA, and I was super nervous to see what would happen. I had a signing scheduled with my super good friends OGchan and Girbeagly, and the three of us had no idea how many people would show.
We were told that there was a line cap during the signing of 120 people, and we were pretty skeptical about if we were going to hit that cap. Of course no matter how many people showed up, it would have been amazing to get to talk to any of you, but we were curious to see how many of you would actually show up. On the day of the signing, 2 hours before the signing was actually going to take place Brian, G and I were told that we had already capped the line. We didn’t even think that the line would get maxed out, but you guys maxed it out over 2 HOURS before the signing was even supposed to start. That absolutely blew our minds. At the time of the signing, we were escorted down to the queue hall. We turned a corner to where the line started and the room immediately erupted in cheers. There were not only all of the people in the actual line, but probably over a hundred of you guys standing along the side. It was so insane seeing so many of you in one room. It was amazing and overwhelming and simply incredible. Meeting so many of you across the weekend was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. Thank you to everyone who came to pax South this year and said hi. I cannot wait to go to more conventions to meet more of you. Hearing all of your stories about how the channel has affected you and seeing how genuine each one of you were was so heartwarming. I am so grateful that my videos can impact some of you in a positive way. Thank you for supporting me. Thank you for supporting my friends. Thank you for giving us a chance. You all mean the world to us :)

Lol or imagine Megatron remembering who Drift actually was in relation to him like, after MONTHS of working with him.

Like one day they’re in a lift going down to check on something in the engine room per Magnus’ request and when Drift walks in it’s like:

“Oh, hello Drift. Ready to go?”

“Yep. Alright, let’s do this.”

And Megs is like “Okay.” But then he thinks about it. Wait. He’s been in an elevator with a pointy-eared mech who says “Alright let’s do this” BEFORE!!!

“… Wait a minute. Drift.”

“Uh, yeah? Did you forget som–”

“DRIFT! You’re THAT Drift!”

“…”

“… Sorry I got excited, I just realized it now.”

“.. YOU JUST– You JUST NOW realized I used to be Deadlock under you!!?!”

“Uh well how was I supposed to know. You’ve got a new frame, a new weapon of choice, really the Autobot brand is throwing me off a lot too… you know how different someone can look just with a paint job?”

“I can’t believe this. I can’t believe I worked for you. We’ve been living on down the hall from each other for 7 MONTHS! We see each other every day. You’re an IDIOT.”

“You STILL work for me, by the way. I’m your Captain.”

“Oh shut up.”

“Ooh, still feisty. Do you still have the fangs?”

“–Go away–”

“–No no, let me see–”

“–I SAID–”

And the door opens up to the former warlord scuffling with his once most feared general, at least 2 fingers in his mouth while his victim mercilessly kicks at his legs and chassis.

Dear anon,

I was going to ignore your message, but let’ be honest I have no reason to lie about losing weight, if you go on my tumblr you can find my before and after (just face btw).

Also if you don’t believe me I don’t understand why you say I’m ashamed of who I was. You made me think a lot about it, so I decided to post this to show you I really don’t care how I used to look, I’m actually proud of the old me. Btw It’s a before and during, because I’m still working on my body and I know one day I will get where i want to be.

I don’t know if you can see the change, but I actually feel like a different person.

P.S. Same phone, Different body.

anonymous asked:

Lmao @ harry stealing liam's spotlight on this dreaded zexit day (unintentionally obviously but still)

LMAO AT ANYONE WHO THINKS THIS IS UNINTENTIONAL.

Okay, not really though, I’m not laughing at you. However, the stunts and album releases amongst the members of One Direction couldn’t be more blatantly linked together even if they tried. 

Let’s go back one year from today…

A year ago we were thinking back to a year before THAT day as it was the anniversary of the day Zayn bid everyone fuckin adieu and spiralled this band into a narrative so ridiculous that actually retelling the series of events makes sound it even more insane in hindsight.

SO. The 25th of March, 2016:

Zayn’s album comes out

Louis does a pap walk

This isn’t the first instance in which Zayn and babygate were linked, as Zayn was also the first member of 1D to acknowledge that Louis’ baby had apparently been born, but did it in the strangest way possible via liking some fan’s tweet about it.

There are plenty of other instances in which early BG and Zayn’s album were constantly linked. @mellygrant and I spoke about it extensively here. But that was 2016 and just for reference.

Now here we are in a year we were so optimistic about, but instead of a year free of drama and full of new music, we’re getting a brand new revamp of Babygate, this time with a different member of One Direction. But first, back to Zayn and Louis. 

Zayn’s new album is being released under Sony, which is the parent company of Syco. It’s been vague as hell whether or not Zayn’s Mind of Mine was produced by Syco, but in the early releases of songs on iTunes Syco was listed in the credits of the track. Louis hasn’t made a public departure from Syco and seeing as he’s still showing up on Simon’s reality shows, it’s safe to say he’s still linked to that flaming pile of garbage. 

Even their beards work together, and if that isn’t the biggest, “Hi, I’m a red flag!” that Louis and Zayn’s teams are still working the two of them off of each other, then I don’t know what is. 

Now here we are on the 25th of March 2017, and we have Louis at Ultra festival just as Zayn is releasing his first single from his new album. And just as everyone’s getting all excited for Louis’ performance you have Liam’s IG announcement of the birth of a child via Instagram and I can only wonder to myself why Instagram has to be the place where dreams go to die. Is IG the only way to announce stunts and babies? 

Then MINUTES later, Harry “I love all the babies” Styles not only ignores yet ANOTHER birth of one of his bandmate’s first child, but sends the internet into a frenzy with another heaux aesthetic wiping of all his profile pictures and posting ominous blank white photos again.

And life for a fan of One Direction continues to be a constant stream of wtfuckery.

THEN we get Harry’s dramatic ass advert on ITV

So many questions. Why is he wet? Why is he emerging from what looks like a giant wardrobe? What is THIS

Why is it all smokey? (You know why…)

So now we have yet AGAIN another Babygate/solo album in tandem with each other and I’m just like 

I’m sure if I start back-pedalling enough to look at times when Harry/Dunkirk/Another Man news was concurrent with Liam babygate news there will be some unsurprising links, but I’ve got better things to do like drink and play more One Direction-themed Cards Against Humanity so for now I’m gonna Zayn. 

PS: WHERE THE HELL IS NOLL?

PPS: AT LEAST THEY WARNED US

Guys, I need to take a break from my usual silliness to talk about what we’re all thinking about, one way or another: Election Day.

Here in Japan, it’s already Tuesday. I’m going about my day as usual–I actually have a class to teach in just a few minutes. I have to keep this swirling nervousness inside me because it’s an observation lesson, so I have to be in my best behavior.

But don’t think, for one second, that this isn’t affecting me, too.

I know a lot of you are probably like me: before this election, you couldn’t have cared less about politics. I bet some of you even wish it wasn’t happening.

But it is.

It IS happening.

Tomorrow will be a day that will go down in history books; it’ll be something your children read about in schools. It’ll either be known as the day we NARROWLY dodged a bullet…or the day the world ended.

So what I’m asking of you, here and now, is to VOTE.

I don’t care if you think it’s a hassle. I don’t care if you don’t like either of the candidates that actually have a CHANCE to win the presidency. I don’t care if your morals are screaming at the top of their lungs that this election is rigged to high hell–VOTE.

This is bigger than your morals. This is bigger than you, and your vision for what America should be. Because this is what America IS, and you need to face it, deal with it, and VOTE.

More specifically, vote Hillary Clinton.

Yeah, yeah, I know–some of you don’t like her. Some of you would rather a third party candidate than either Hillary or Donald.

But let me ask you something: do you really think any Republicans are going to be voting third party? Do you actually think, seeing all the numbers and statistics that have been EVERYWHERE on here, that your champion actually has a chance, when it’s been proven over and over again that VOTING THIRD PARTY DOESN’T WORK?

And do you think, for even one second, that your friends will still stand by you, you who split the Democratic vote because of your morals or whatever–do you actually think they’d be able to look at you the same, after you helped hand Donald the presidency?

Would YOU be able to face yourself in the mirror, knowing you helped make that happen?

Again, this is bigger than you, your morals, and your vision on what America should be. This is what America IS.

Face it.

Deal with it.

Vote Hillary Clinton.

And for those of you who say it’ll be too much of a hassle to vote, let me put things in perspective for you:

For an absentee ballot, I had to register to vote online, wait until it was confirmed, print out my ballot, provide documentation that proved that I was who I was, and negotiate the mailing of said ballot from my post office. In Japanese.

And you’re telling me you can’t stand in line for a couple hours? If that’s your argument, then you’ll find limited sympathy from me, if at all.

I know this task is daunting. There will be bigoted scum watching the polls, challenging your rights, trying to prevent you from performing your civic duty.

Do not let them win.

Do not let this literal spawn of Satan win.

Vote Hillary Clinton.

Ok so I’m re-reading Harry Potter...

On the bus during my commutes to and from school. And as I read, I’ve been making little notes and internal dialogues about things that I notice as I go (or notice again because I have no idea how many times I’ve read these books. So many times…) And I figured I might share them as I go through each book, because honestly when isn’t there a good time to geek out over the Wizarding World? Kay? Kay :)

The Philosopher’s Stone

  • Why, why, WHY does no one talk about Dumbledore’s fabulous high-heeled purple boots??
  • You know what I never noticed before? Professor McGonagall actually left Hogwarts to go to Privet Drive the day that James and Lily died. Like I mean obviously, but think about it; the first book starts out on a Tuesday (says it a couple paragraphs in to the first chapter) and we know that they died on Halloween. So the school is well into its Fall term, and it’s the middle of the week. McGonagall left the school, and all her classes, to go and sit all day long on that garden wall of Privet Drive just to wait for any information at all regarding this family. She sat there literally for hours to hear any confirmation of these wonderful yet terrible rumors. She waited and waited just to see if Harry was alright. And after just barely witnessing a distant taste of how horrid the Dursley’s were, she was completely outraged at Dumbledore’s suggestion to leave Harry there.
  • Also, there was a full day between when James and Lily were killed and when Hagrid brought Harry to Privet Drive. Imagine Hagrid taking care of baby bean Harry, loving on him so much, while probably breaking into tears every few minutes. I’m getting emotional, Hagrid and McGonagall are too wonderful.
  • I love the fact that the very first thing Mrs. Weasley does when she hears who Harry is from the twins is to make sure they treat him like a normal boy rather than going off to gawk at him. She is an amazing mother, and already so ready to protect him in a way he hadn’t known for ten years.
  • Harry and Ron’s first meeting means the world to me. These are two eleven year old boys bonding over not having much money nor being very special growing up. Will I ever make it through reading this series without getting overly-emotional at random bits? Nope, probably not!
  • I’m honestly still confused as to how Peter Pettigrew was sorted into Gryffindor. I mean he really doesn’t seem to display any of the the house traits as far as I can see. The only possible thing I can come up with is that he must’ve befriended the other three Marauders on the first train ride and was so desperate to stick close to them that he insisted the Sorting Hat place him with them. I mean the Hat does take the persons wants into consideration, he must’ve been adamant. Either that or perhaps part of the Hat’s decision is looking at where someone’s placement would benefit them most? Like “this child could do with being around these specific people so hopefully they will grow to be courageous when circumstances call for it, as well as truly loyal to those who care for and are loyal to them.” Maybe the Hat doesn’t just look at who you are but also who you need to become. And in the instance of Pettigrew, it just wasn’t enough.
  • It’s actually canon that Dumbledore likes bowling. Why does no one talk about this? More importantly, why is there no art for this??
  • Still not over how Hagrid totally sent Harry a letter with Hedwig that first week of school to make sure he didn’t feel left out.
  • Can we talk about the fact that Neville took on both Crabbe and Goyle single handed while Ron beat up Malfoy? Because FRICK YEAH go Neville!
  • Every time they mention Charlie Weasley I re-realize just how salty I am that they never had him in the movies.
  • Hagrid says Dumbledore “borrowed” Fluffy, which makes me wonder where he keeps Fluffy when he’s not living on the 3rd floor? Maybe in the forest, like Grawp? I suspect it would need to be super deep in there…
  • Honestly Snape is such an ass. I know he was technically on the good side, but he was certainly not a good person. And any Snape apologists can fight me on this.
