actually something that is not a spoiler and still has to do with justin

My thoughts on 13 Reasons Why Characters (Contains Spoilers)

Hannah Baker: I hate everything that happened to Hannah.Those terrible scenes just grabbed my heart and crumbled it into dust. She went through so much and felt like she had no one to talk to. Majority of her friends just betrayed her except for Clay Jenkins. The only thing about Hannah that I found messed up about her was that she pushed away the one person that actually wanted to be there for her. 

Clay Jensen: I felt bad for him, having to hear about the awful things done to the person he loved and watching him struggle to try and get justice for her. I just wished he was able to overcome the fear he had when talking to Hannah and told her how he really felt. There was that moment where he was a dick to her when she tried to talk about the car accident and he completely shut her down. 

Tony: Ever since the beginning i got this mysterious vibe off Tony and i didn’t really like it but i realized it was all for Hannah and honoring what she wanted, I’m really glad he decided to show Ms. Baker the tapes even though I was dying for him to tell her sooner.

Jeff Atkins: OMG WHY?!? JUSTICE FOR JEFF TOO! He had absolutely nothing to do with the tapes and all he wanted was Clay to be happy and to be with Hannah. He was such a sweet guy who definitely didn’t need to go. 

Jessica Davis: I loved her, then i hated her, and then I felt really bad for her and like Hannah I hope Jessica gets the justice she deserves. I really liked her at the beginning, she was such a cool person and her and Hannah were so so similar. They had that friendship, where you can consider each other sisters. But then I hated how she automatically blamed Hannah instead of Alex for the list that he made and then blamed her for end of their break-up. She didn’t even try to listen to Hannah. And I hated that she didn’t want to see justice for a girl who was once her friend. But then it all started to make sense and it was because she was fed a soup full of lies by her boyfriend. 

Justin Foley: I feel like Justin Foley actually does have a good heart but he just didn’t make the right decisions. I loved how much he cared about Jessica but what he did to her was completely awful. But, it killed me when he called out to his mom after her boyfriend just choked her son and she just walked away. And what really also got to me was when he told Jessica about almost jumping and said he couldn’t because he was thinking about her almost made me forget about what he did but then Jessica told him off, and I remembered the pain he helped cause her. It’s clear that what he did was eating him up inside (as it should) and now he just has to live with that

Bryce aka dickshit: FUCK HIM. HOPE HE CREMATES IN HELL. If you watched the show, i’m pretty sure this is all I need to say about that disgusting animal. 

Courtney Crimsen: Hate her. Hated her. And still hate her. I understand she didn’t want people knowing she was lesbian but that was no reason to throw Hannah under the bus. Coming out is hard, especially when you go to school with a bunch of judgmental, immature idiots but that’s still not a justification for what she did. And then i absolutely hated her when she tried to stand up and protect Bryce like he wasn’t a rapist who raped not only Hannah but Jessica too. I get she was lying to herself about him not be a rapist so she wouldn’t have to consider herself a lesbian but she just needed to finally admit the truth to herself. 

Sheri: I liked her and….. i don’t hate her. She should’ve called the cops but I understand her reasons her hitting and running a stop sign. She was scared. But she should’ve never left an slightly intoxicated Hannah there after she offered her a ride. But i do feel like Sherri has her heart in the right place by hanging around the old man who got in the accident and by finally going to the police. 

Alex Standall: I hated him for making the list and letting Jessica be mad at Hannah for it. But he was the only one who actually had a brain in the ‘lets take Clay down so the world won’t know about all the horrible things we’ve done” group. He was the first one to actually wanted to tell the truth and accept the punishments. He was also a sweet character and I really hope he isn’t dead. 

Zach: I thought he was sweet too. But i didn’t like how he didn’t speak up for Hannah and actually take into consideration that she needed help, but i can’t really blame him for the fact that he was scared and it’s hard to know that there’s something wrong with someone and actually being able to help them. Knowing that there’s something really dark about a person and just freezing up with fear and not knowing what to do. And what people do in situations like this is they take the easy way out and just ignore it and act like it never happened. But i truly think he actually liked Hannah. 

Tyler: Fucking creep. Seriously he should have his camera shattered into a million and one pieces. And i know this is just a theory but i just wanna put this out there and most of you are probably thinking this too but i’m pretty sure Tyler shot Alex. He had all those guns and he took down Alex’s picture. It makes sense. Anyways, i don’t understand why he was trying so hard to try and get into the  ‘lets take Clay down so the world won’t know about all the horrible things we’ve done” group. I think he’s a psychopath and that side of him will unravel in season two of this show.  

Marcus Cole: I thought he was actually a nice guy when he asked Hannah to go out with him and then once he came and hour late and sexually assaulted Hannah that’s when I hated him. He cared wayy to much about his reputation. 

Ryan: self-centered douche bag. The only moment i’ll applaud him is when he shut Courtney down when she tried to deny Bryce was a rapist. I saw his point on having her poem open to the world and about her struggles reaching out and connecting to other people’s problem but it was personal and he should’ve asked for permission. 

Mr. Porter: What’s the point of having a guidance counselor if they’re not going to help guide you out of your problems?? I’m happy he felt bad for not being able to stop what Hannah did to herself. Out of all these people, he was the only one that actually gets paid to help people out of their problems

Inside the Super-Sized 'Glee' Reunion on 'The Flash'-'Supergirl' Musical Crossover
Good luck staying in your seat during this episode

Darren Criss is singing his heart out. Grant Gustin and Melissa Benoist are tap dancing. “It’s literally a Glee episode,” Gustin jokes. No, the Fox series hasn’t been revived. The trio are actually reuniting for the first time since their days on the Emmy-nominated hit series for a different kind of musical — and Criss may finally get his revenge. 

His Glee character, Blaine Anderson, received a slushy facial from Gustin’s Sebastian Smythe back in 2012, but now the tables have turned, with Criss assuming the mantle of the dastardly DC Comics villain Music Meister in the highly anticipated Flash/Supergirl musical crossover. “It is funny that the last time I worked with Grant, he was the bad guy and he was singing at me, and now I’m the bad guy singing at him,” Criss says. Though it’s a different set, with the quick turnaround and prep, Criss concurs that this all feels familiar. “It’s just Glee,” he says. 

In the March 21 episode of The Flash, Barry (Gustin) and Kara (Benoist) find themselves trapped in a movie musical of the Meister’s creation — an hour that has been years in the making. “We’ve always talked about doing it, from the very beginning, more in a joking way,” says executive producer Andrew Kreisberg. Gustin, however, was initially curious. “I didn’t ever think it would be a real thing, so when they told me it was real, I was like, ‘How?!‘” 

Here’s how: As the Scarlet Speedster and Girl of Steel experience turmoil in their interpersonal relationships, they’re whammied by the Music Meister, a less mustache-twirling, more manipulative villain who causes victims to break into song. The character was famously voiced by Neil Patrick Harris in the Batman: The Brave and the Bold animated series. “I have made a pretty decent career of only taking over roles as made famous by child stars,” jokes Criss, who also played the titular wizard in the Harry Potter musical. 

“I could not be happier that he’s here,” gushes Benoist, whose Glee character Marley Rose was mentored by Blaine. “He’s killing this role. He’s bringing such a fun energy, the way he did on Glee as well.”

Being fans of movie musicals as kids, the power-stripped heroes end up trapped in a golden-age send-up involving rival gangs and their kids falling in love — though expect many of the couples to come with a twist. The only way out? Follow the Meister’s script till the end. It may be a prison to them, but it’s heaven to Benoist. Noting she was born in the wrong era, the actress takes delight in the vintage ambience while sitting on a ’40s-era nightclub set. “Not that I don’t love the [Supergirl] suit, but it just feels good playing the same character in a completely different setting,” she says. “I’m eating this up.”

The Glee alums aren’t the only big names attached to the special episode. In a nod to Kara’s favorite film Wizard of Oz, everyone else in the vocally impressive cast is playing a character within this movie, from Jesse L. Martin, Victor Garber, and John Barrowman as rival mob bosses to Jeremy Jordan’s club pianist and Carlos Valdes’ aspiring artist busboy. Cherry-picking the movie musical genre — West Side Story, Singing in the Rain, and Guys and Dolls among the show’s inspirations — the hour also features some original songs, including “Runnin’ Home to You” from Oscar-winning La La Land duo Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, as well as the bubbly and playful Rachel Bloom co-penned tap duet “Super Friend.” “It’s a goofy song and it’s very consistent with that style of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,” Gustin says. 

“We were approached by Rachel Bloom, who reached out to us and she really wanted to write a song for us,” Kreisberg explains. “And Greg [Berlanti] had a relationship with Pasek and Paul, so we sat down with them — we hadn’t even seen La La Land with them, but Greg had been such huge fans of theirs.” 

The episode also includes several covers, among them the Benoist solo “Moon River,” and an ensemble performance of Jackie DeShannon’s “Put a Little Love in Your Heart” that brings the denizens of the ’40s nightclub to their feet as the Meister conducts Jordan, Valdes, and John Barrowman in an epic, upbeat dance number choreographed by Glee’s Zachary Woodlee. “Some things are just star-crossed,” Valdes says of his two worlds — superheroes and musicals — colliding. “Some things are just destined and written in the stars. This felt like one of those instances where it was just something that was going to happen.” 

Jordan concurs: “Ever since they announced the cast of our show — plus the casts of Flash and other shows having so many musical theater people in them — it was only a matter of time before they harnessed those talents and made something into it.” 

All involved have unquestionable talents when it comes to singing, but Barrowman says the DeShannon piece doesn’t play to his strengths: “I’m exceptionally confident vocally, but they show me the dance steps and I’m not a hip-hopper, no way,” says Barrowman, who practices his moves on set between takes. “I panicked.” Still, Barrowman was determined to be involved once he learned of the crossover. “I hadn’t heard anything and I just basically then said, ‘I think you would be daft or stupid not to have me in this, really,‘” he says. “But they planned on it all along.” 

On the flip side, Gustin says he was excited about slipping back into his dance shoes. “More than anything else, my true foundation was tap dance,” the actor says. “It’s been cool to get back to it.” Adds Benoist: “It’s funny how things stay in your muscle memory. It was fun to pick it back up again and see your body and be like, ‘Oh, we remember how to do this.'” 

With everyone in one room, Barrowman admits, “I’m a bit fan-boying out to be honest,” explaining that he watched his castmates’ former projects Glee and Smash. “What a nerd,” Jordan responds upon hearing the news. “He plays it super cool backstage, so you wouldn’t know he was geeking out.”  

Beyond Glee, the hour marks an even bigger reunion as Gustin and Supergirl‘s Chris Wood — who, along with co-star David Harewood, will guest in the crossover, but not sing — went to school together, while Criss counts Valdes, Pasek, and Paul as classmates. “It’s been a very sentimental crossover on so many levels,” Criss says. “Every day, every scene my mind is being blown. I can’t believe I’m here with Melissa Benoist and Carlos Valdes. ‘How do you guys even know each other? Oh, that’s right, you’re both superheroes!'” 

Fun fact: Another classmate of theirs, Andy Mientus, also previously played a villain on The Flash, with Criss joking it’s about damn time he appeared in the Berlanti-verse. “I was wondering why everybody else I knew had been on the show but me,” Criss says with a laugh. In truth, Kreisberg says Criss was destined to play this role. “Darren so brings him to life,” the EP says. “I’m not sure who we would have gotten to do it if Darren had said no, but it turned out to be one of those things where we wanted Darren and Darren actually wanted the part. It was very kismet.” 

Should the crossover prove successful, Kreisberg even has hopes for a sequel, and Criss would be elated to return to the wild, wild world of singing superheroes. “I would have liked to have written some songs,” quips the actor and musician, who landed the role too late in the process to do so. “I want to come back, I’m not done — then I’ll have my true payback!” Watch out, Flash! 

The musical crossover will kick off at the end of Supergirl‘s March 20 hour, with the majority of the action taking place during The Flash‘s March 21 episode, both airing at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.

Spoilers! My Thoughts on Epic Winter

Beware: Very long post with crap ton of pictures! -wink- 

Guess who has a new OTP???

DIS GURL DOES! I really love this new song better than the last one in my opinion. 

I suppose I’ll give my thoughts on the movie. Over all? It was pretty all right, but I felt it was too predictable. There were very few elements in the movie that was new and refreshing. For example, the two main characters (Raven and Apple) took a nice healthy break from the spot light to give some other characters a try, which is nice (though due to this choice, no Rapple -sniff sniff-).

I was very happy to see Justine and Duchess have a ice dance off! I would love to see more between these two in the future <3! Healthy competition of course.

AND GUESS WHO SQUEALED/CRIED OVER SEEING HER ORIGINAL OTP? PLEASE MATTEL! I want to see these two interact more. Ever since Spring Unsprung I shipped them and was disappointed that they haven’t talked to each other since! 

Not to mention I am sad that Darling and Apple haven’t been shown talking about their destinies either. It obviously showed that Apple and Daring weren’t meant to be; but I am still holding on to Darling most likely being Apple’s Prince Charming while also being the White Knight in Wonderland. (Just make Darling gay Mattel -slips them Mattel money that they obviously need for their stupid/tragic doll budget cuts they’ve been making-) #Butthat’snoneofmybusiness 

“Blondie needs to chill out.”

I think this was the best thing in the movie X’D ahaha! And of course Blondie’s mic drop right before this. Did you see her icon on the bottom right corner? It’s so adorable! I haven’t seen it before until now! :D

It was spelltacular that we saw some parents again!

Jillian with her dad. EVEN LIZZIE AND HER MOM! SO ADORABLE! 

Not gonna lie, I felt bad for Raven, but it was pretty amusing scooting her mother around ahaha!

The library scene really was hexcellent! The detail was superb. I really enjoyed it and hope it will be used again in the future.

Farrah really grew on me in this movie. She is seriously adorable and too amazing for her own good. I was delighted seeing what else she can do. 

Am I the only one tickled pink in seeing cutie Poppy snuggled in Holly’s long hair? XD

Soooooo why didn’t Faybelle get a doll but Maddie and Apple did? =_=;; I would have DIED for a Faybelle doll in this outfit :’( (I would say maybe a special edition doll but I think the special edition doll was Crystal Winter herself. I guess we shall see…)

The antagonists in the movie were all right. I didn’t realize how short they were until Crystal hugged them later on. At least they’re not as short as the pixies.

Also, did anyone else get annoyed with Blondie? I feel harsh saying this, but I kinda wish they left her out and put someone else instead (like maybe cutie patootie Cedar or something). I have a like/dislike relationship with Blondie. She has her good and bad moments. At least her outfit was pretty cute during this movie but I kinda wish they left her out. 

Cute Winter pout and sulk <3

Not gonna lie, I kinda want that gun now ahaha! 

“How did the sleigh even get up there?” Blondie asks the real questions XD 

I was happy to see Briar and Faybelle interact a few times within the movie. You can clearly see Briar is still very uncomfortable of being put to sleep for 100 years of her life. I suppose they wanted to show she still hasn’t quite decided on what she wants to do. 

Okay Faybelle that WASN’T okay to do, even as a joke. Not hat-tastic >: / 

But I do appreciate her ‘oh shit she gunna do it for realz?!’ look XD 

I just really enjoyed these scenes of them glowing and asleep. Just gorgeous animation all around #aesthetic guyz

My most favorite part probably was the new song and everyone dreaming of their happily ever afters. It was very enchanting and beautiful! 

Most likely my new wallpaper <3 

Soooo yeah my new otp. I was very thrilled on seeing this. It really does show that Faybelle has a soft side and definitely wouldn’t curse Briar so she can be free to do as she pleases. She does care and even stopped Briar to not make a choice she knows she wouldn’t be happy on making.

I just love the details to this song. I’m starting to wonder the person who sings this also sings for Monster High. The voice just sounded familiar. 

OKAY BUT SERIOUSLY! These cuties literally killed my heart in this scene. HUNTER LOOKING SO DAPPER AND IS AN ADORABLE CHESTNUT! I mean, look at him! He’s so captivating and just so blessed to have Ashlynn in his life. He never thought he would ever get a princess and just—my heart guys, my heart! 

Blondie’s dream was just very cute. She just wants to have many bear friends to bear with her :’D (I’m terrible I know). 

Just an darling Crystal Winter screenshot. 

I know many Dizzie and Darise fans were very upset over the canon relationship of Rosabella and Daring. I find them very adorable though and consider them a nice and interesting couple. I would love to see more of them in future episodes and movies <3! 

Overall the movie was beautiful and gorgeously animated since I am a big winter person myself. I would probably give it a 7.5/10 since I feel that some parts were a bit lackluster, and like I said earlier, too predictable. But I actually am proud that Mattel still gives me another otp to love <3. And also,

Crying Faybelle gives me life? It just goes to show you have to read the fine print when it comes to shady things like that. Glad she learned her lesson (or at least I hope she did). I grew to love Faybelle a lot during these past 2 movies. But probably since she’s been seen a lot (like Lizzie from Spring Unsprung and Way to Wonderland) we might not be able to see her possibly for a long while. Just saying and noticing a trend guys > o >.

Anyways, let me know what you think! Do you like the new movie? Have you collected any of the dolls? What do you think of the new Rosebella and Daring pairing? Talk to me guyz! I’m alllll ears! ^_^ 

teamfreewill-vs-theworld  asked:

Hey so I'm writing an argument essay on Snape for English class, and I know you have very strong feelings about him, so I was wondering if you could give me your opinion on him so that I have some ideas for what to write

I am so glad you asked! *pulls out a virtual stack of books on the subject*

Lets begin Reasons to Hate Snape 101!

All right, in Book one:

Snape originally comes off a bit standoffish, but he’s a teacher, so Harry’s all like ‘eh’ but the first thing he does is practically attack Harry with Potions questions that might have been in the book but were a bit too advanced for Harry who had only opened his history of magic book and herbology.

The first day of class should have been spent explaining to them the basics of potionmaking, but instead it was used by Snape to assert himself higher and make Harry seem unintelligent, and when Harry points out that there is someone else in the class that might know better than him, Snape docks him a point.

Though, Harry’s words might have been cheeky enough to earn that docked point, the next time he loses one is completely undeserved: when Neville screws up his potion and blames it on Harry.

During the quidditch match that Quirrel tries to kill Harry, Snape earns a few points for saving Harry’s life, but he’s not doing it for the right reasons. I’m sure that Lily would have been grateful that Snape saved her son’s life if she was still around, but Snape did that because Harry was Lily’s son (neatly shoving James aside), not because he was a kid in danger. What would have happened if Quirrel had decided to nearly kill Fred or George (in a bizarre turn of events)? Would he stand by and watch?

In chapter 13 we come on the next quidditch match which Harry discovers Snape will be refereeing and Harry is so reluctant to go onto the field, partly because he thinks Snape tried to kill him last time, and probably partly because he’s a royal douchey tosspot that delights in making others miserable. He actually considers breaking his leg to keep himself from playing. What does that tell you?

But Snape does protect the Stone in the chamber, though that could be argued as being expected of him as a professor.

On to book two:

Now, Harry sees Snape first in this book after he and Ron crashed the Ford Anglia into the whomping willow, and while yes, Harry and Ron were foolish and reckless, they also didn’t know what to do with the barrier sealed, so they could hardly have been blamed, overreacting as they did (as children do). Punishment is warranted, obviously, but threatening them with expulsion is a bit too far…over a car that was seen by only two Muggles and did hardly any damages to the Whomping Willow.

Thankfully McGonagall and Dumbledore show up to clear things up.

Then we have issues with Slytherin-Gryffindor quidditch training.

The training ground is booked in advance by respective quidditch captains, given how Wood reacts, but Snape flies by those rules and gives the Slytherin team ‘special permission’ to train Draco as the next seeker (it should be noted that Harry needed no such thing when he became the Gryffindor seeker the previous year). Rules appear to matter little to him. 

Then there is the matter of Mrs. Norris’ petrification and Snape pins them as being very suspicious for going down that corridor instead of heading straight up to the common room, and though he’s right, since Harry’s following the basilisk’s voice, to find some blame in three twelve year olds is something I find quite annoying.

In potions class, causing a distraction for Hermione to collect ingredients, Harry douses half the class in potion that Snape swears if he finds the perpetrator he will have them expelled. A bit much over some spilled potion, don’t you think?

The dueling club is a hot mess to be sure, but when Lockhart gets up to suggest Justin and Neville, Snape says Neville causes devestation with the even simplest of spells, which undoubtedly has an impact on Neville’s self-esteem and is an extremely rude thing to say about a child in front of his peers.

In book three:

We see Snape’s favoritism fine more clearly than the previous books when he assigns Ron to cut Draco’s daisy roots, despite that Draco’s arm isn’t really damaged.

Then he threatens to force-feed Neville’s toad his potion, which is at the very least animal cruelty, and then takes points from Hermione for helping him, even though he didn’t have any proof of the act.

Now comes the worst bit for Neville: Defense Against the Dark Arts

Snape tells Remus just how terrible Neville is at simply instructions and basically insults the boy right in front of him, and really, its no surprise that Neville’s boggart is Snape.

But consider that for a moment: Neville’s boggart is a teacher, someone students are supposed to look up to, but Snape constantly beats him down, him, a thirteen year old wizard who can’t get his magic to work quite right with his father’s wand. Its frankly sickening.

Then when Snape finds out about how Neville dressed his boggart, he bullies him worse than ever. He doesn’t realize that if he didn’t bully Neville, Neville wouldn’t’ve had him as a boggart and wouldn’t have dressed him so ridiculously, so really its his fault in the first place.

Next comes the issue of how Sirius got into Hogwarts:

Snape immediately blames Remus, after all, Remus was Sirius’ old friend and a werewolf, a Dark creature, who in their right mind wouldn’t blame him?

But Dumbledore shuts him down (the only time I will ever say ‘Hallelujah, Dumbles!’).

Then we have Snape taking over Remus’ class while he’s recovering:

Harry is late to class, so the point deduction is expected, but he loses more points when he asks why Remus isn’t there and is then threatened with losing 50 if he doesn’t take his seat…that’s overdoing it a bit, 50 points for standing? Ridiculous.

He makes Remus seem unorganized by saying he doesn’t have any idea what they’re studying and when Hermione tries to explain, he cuts her off.

*SPOILER ALERT: DICK MOVE AHEAD*

Then he decides to teach them about werewolves, something far outside of what they’d been studying and then berates them for not knowing how to identify them and when Hermione offers some information, he docks her points for being an insufferable know it all.

This is uncalled for, much like how he abuses his authority in bullying Neville and Harry.

Its also a bit hypocritical, as Ron points out “Why did you ask if you didn’t want to know?”

Its very clear he is good as being a bully more than a teacher.

But, now imagine how Remus felt coming back to work to essays about how to kill his kind? That’s pretty awful.

Then there was the issue with Hogsmeade and Harry sneaking out and throwing a mudball at Draco’s head, now, obviously he wasn’t allowed (Big no no, Harrykins), but the way Snape handles it is all wrong.

First he provokes him about his fame, which was something that Harry had never had a choice in (and could be argued was caused by Snape with the whole prophecy dealio), and then he drags James into the mix, calling Harry arrogant like his father (something Harry clearly wasn’t). A kid can only take so many insults about his dad before he snaps, so its really no surprise that Harry does so.

Having a shouting match with a child is quite unprofessional, especially given how he bullies said child constantly.

During one of Harry’s potions classes he doesn’t quite get his Confusion Concoction to thicken, so Snape gives him a zero. I don’t know about you lot, but if I make an attempt at something in Bio Lab, I at least get points for the attempt, even if it doesn’t turn out quite right.

Now, in the Shrieking Shack, we learn all about why Snape hates the Marauders, even going so far as to claim that James got cold feet at the last second about Sirius’ plan and using that as an excuse to still hate the man (this kind of grudge-holding isn’t the kind you’d expect a grown up to have)

His desire to put Sirius away is understandable, given Sirius nearly got him killed, but the fact remains is that he didn’t. His desire to put two innocent men (including Remus in this) in prison is quite startling.

The way he paints himself as a hero to the Minister is laughable, since he is as far from that as possible, and then the way he loses his temper in front of Harry and Hermione and those in the hospital wing (with Ron being unconscious) is shameful. 

But I think that possibly the worst thing was that the teachers -as it can be assumed- all knew about Remus’ condition and were sworn not to speak of it but Snape -the fucking asshole that he is- outed him to Slytherin House and soon the whole school. Really, what a fucking dick. Being a werewolf is no one’s business but their own.

In book four:

Snape gives Neville detention disemboweling horned toads, knowing full well how he’d feel about it, being the owner of a toad.

He gives them an assignment of researching antidotes, hinting he might poison them to see if their antidote works. Wtf? And what happens if it doesn’t? He’ll be sent off to Azkaban for manslaughter? Best idea yet.

When Harry’s name comes out of the fire, he automatically blames it on Harry’s ‘determination to break rules’…most of the times he broke rules for a good cause…so Snape trying to bring Harry down again.

Draco and Harry duel in the hallway and Draco’s curse manages to hit Hermione, making her teeth grow much like a beaver’s and Snape says “I see no difference.”

Now that is a scummy thing to say to a girl who has always been uncomfortable about the size of her teeth, so much so that his words reduced her to tears.

Snape also uses Dumbledore’s trust as a shield and excuse, like when Moody talks about his right to search rooms and Snape says the headmaster trusts him, no matter how misplaced it is.

During Potions class Snape insinuates that the press on Harry has inflated his already overinflated head, but, funny thing, Harry’s not a fan of press and can’t control what people do or do not write about him.

Then he accuses Harry of stealing from him without any proof and threatens to dose him with Veritaserum, which is incredibly low if you ask me.

In book five:

Snape makes a lot of jibes towards Sirius in this book, sine he has to remain indoors, hidden from the DEs and how Snape is out risking his neck, but we all know that Sirius would gladly be out risking his own.

The thing about the OWLs is odd. Given Snape’s teaching style, its safe to assume that most of his NEWTs students are Slytherins, given how he teaches more to them and sidelines the other houses. Taking only Os into NEWT classes is a bit ridiculous. It would be like asking me to get an A in my Microbio class, which I am just barely scraping by.

Snape insults Harry for not reading his instructions properly even though they’re in his FUCKING HANDWRITING (check yourself, asshole). And then he vanishes Harry’s potion and gives him a zero (rude).

He empties his cauldron constantly, I honestly don’t know how Harry could have possibly passed his class given how much Snape dragged his grade down.

Now to the Occlumency lessons. You have no fucking idea how much I hate Snape for those. Picking apart someone’s memories in an attempt to help them guard against mental attacks is a pretty shoddy idea. Snape gets to see all of Harry’s memories, when he’s vulnerable, when he’s being picked on by the Dursleys…and, ironically, he still considers arrogant and self-entitled, and that’s the mark of someone who just lacks all empathy.

It could even be argued that Snape made it easier for Voldemort to get into Harry’s head.

In Snape’s memories we get a glimpse of who Snape is and who James used to be. And while James was a bit crude, choking Snape with his cleansing charm, as brief as it was, given James’ background, its safe to say he wouldn’t have gone so far as to kill him. Snape, on the other hand, gave him a gash that could have easily slit his throat.

During Harry’s OWL potion’s exam he mentions how much easier it is to work without Snape breathing over his shoulder, and is probably a reason Harry does much better on his OWL.

He offers Umbridge to poison Harry since he’s out of Veritaserum, like wtf??

In book six:

He insults Tonks’ new patronus, to reflect her love for Remus, taking the form of a wolf, as looking rather weak, and then takes points off from Harry before the year even starts. Fifty points! For Lateness? What rubbish!

He makes fun of how Ron can barely Apparate and claims Harry’s knowledge of Inferi vs Ghosts is that of which a five year old could know.

Harry learns the truth about the prophecy and how Snape was the person who told Voldemort about it and subsequently caused his parents’ deaths, only one of which Snape appears to regret.

And while Harry and the others did not interact hardly at all with Snape in book seven, the memories Snape showed Harry proved what he was willing to sacrifice for Lily.

As someone has said before: James was willing to sacrifice himself for Lily and Harry, while Snape was willing to sacrifice Harry and James for Lily.

So, I went on a long rant, haha! It took me hours to write it all down, but I feel like these are the most of the problems I have with Snape! Good luck with your paper!

'Grey's Anatomy' Boss Shonda Rhimes Goes In-Depth on Season 13 | EW

Another doctor has vacated Grey Sloan Memorial, but when Grey’s Anatomy returns, Callie’s (Sara Ramirez) move to New York won’t be as devastatingly heartbreaking to the hospital as it was to the audience.

“It’s not this sense of loss,” executive producer Shonda Rhimes tells EW. “In our world, Callie still exists.”

But the move does provide the long-running drama a unique opportunity to shift the focus back to the four remaining original characters. “Meredith will always be the nucleus because she’s the voice, but to have the four originals still is pretty amazing,” Justin Chambers, who plays Alex, says of his fellow mainstays, including Bailey (Chandra Wilson) and Webber (James Pickens Jr.).

For Meredith (Ellen Pompeo), this season delves into the struggle of how to move forward. After facing the near-impossible task of healing in the wake of Derek’s death, “She’s in a place of What’s next?” Rhimes says. “How do you grow up from there? What are the next steps when you’re ready to step out on your own?” Part of that next step is navigating the murky waters of a love triangle with recent rebound Riggs (Martin Henderson) and Meredith’s half sister Maggie (Kelly McCreary) — though don’t expect a catfight. “What I love is that we’re not ever a show that’s about a guy coming between two women, because I really feel like that’s never interesting,” Rhimes says.

Focusing on the OGs also means calling back the dynamics of the early seasons — “Symmetry is a thing on this show, because the audience loves familiarity,” Pompeo notes — while making season 13 feel fresh. “My goal is always that every season feels like its own special animal,” Rhimes says.

Case in point: Alex reverts to his jerky self of the old days in the wake of pummeling DeLuca (Giacomo Gianniotti), believing the intern was making a move on a drunken Jo (Camilla Luddington). It turns out her name isn’t even Jo Wilson, and she’s still married to the abusive man she ran away from. “Meredith suffered a violent attack last year and very much overcame it, and this idea that women are often treated in this way is disturbing to me,” Rhimes says of the show taking on the issue of violence against women. “But it’s also very interesting to me to get to tell the story of Jo from this perspective of somebody who has walked away from a past that happened so long ago and might have to face it again.” Below, Rhimes goes in-depth on season 13:

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: The show is putting focus back on the remaining original characters. How is that resonating in the stories in season 13?
SHONDA RHIMES: It just means that part of what we’re doing is we’re really telling stories that are about — our story arcs this season are about Meredith, about Alex, about Bailey, and about Richard, and that’s where we’re pointing our compass right now.

Does season 13 therefore feel in the spirit of those early seasons?
My goal is always that every season feels like it’s its own special animal, so I don’t think that would be a totally accurate thing to say. But I think it does feel really good.

As you’re leaning into stories about the originals, everyone on set seemed very happy and very much like this is something that they want to continue doing. Was it therefore then really easy for you to get everyone to come back for season 13?
You know what was hilarious to me about all this reporting about everybody was coming back? How do I say this without getting in trouble? The news stories that always get reported don’t really have much to do with the timing of reality. So the flurry of reports about who was coming back was really late for us. It didn’t really have anything to do with our lives. So it was not a concern of mine. I was way past being concerned about that stuff because it didn’t really have any effect on us. I always think it’s interesting how long it takes people to get a hold of something that by that time I was like, “What? They’re actually reporting that? They think that’s a story at this point?”

What I love is, because we’ve all been together so long and we’ve all been a family for so long, there’s no like, “Oh, I’m going to hold my breath and cross my fingers and hope to see what happens.” We have these conversations. It’s like when I say I go to Sandra [Oh] at the beginning of every year and say like, “Are you going to do it again?” because I know her and I know where her head is at. I sort of know where everybody’s head is at and we all have these conversations endlessly about what we want to do, how long we want to keep doing it, and how long we want to be creative for in this way. It’s not really about crossing your fingers, holding your breath, and wondering what’s going to happen, which I feel really fortunate about, and it’s because everybody is so mature, and we’ve all had this relationship for so long.

With the season picking up right where we left off, how does Meredith react to being in a love triangle again?
I never thought of it as being a love triangle. It’s not really a love triangle. For a love triangle to be a love triangle, I think all three people have to actually be involved. A. I don’t know that she’s in love. B. I think she’s taking care of her sister and that’s part of it. She’s now got an actual family that she’s surrounded herself with, and now she feels responsible for them.

What does Meredith feel for Riggs right now?
I think she’s got an attraction. There’s an attraction for him, absolutely, and I don’t think she’s actually taken the time to figure out what it is. I’m not sure she’s even ready to make that decision at this point when we come back into the season.

With Maggie admitting her feelings for Riggs, does that force Meredith to face her feelings head-on?
I don’t know that that’s necessarily what happens. In a weird way, it gives her an ability to not have to face that decision head on.

How does this affect her dynamic with Maggie?
What I love is that we’re not ever a show that’s about a guy coming between two women, because I really feel like that’s never interesting. So I don’t think it affects her dynamic with her sister as much as it’s about who she’s going to be and how she’s going to decide to deal with the situation.

Maggie has admitted she has feelings for Riggs totally unaware that her sister has slept with him. How do you think Maggie would feel knowing that this was kept from her?
What I love about it is it’s this very innocent moment of Meredith had no idea that any of this would turn into a problem in this way, and Maggie had no idea any of this would turn into a problem in this way. He’s just a guy that she likes that she thinks might like her, and Meredith has this secret dream about this guy that she was not planning on getting involved with. I don’t think that, for either of them, anybody is doing anything wrong, because I don’t think either of them really set out to do anything in that way. I don’t know that it’s a hurtful act.

If last season was about bringing these three sisters together, is this year about pulling them apart?
I don’t think this season is about pulling them apart. What’s really nice is that, in a weird way, I feel like we’ve grown them up in a really great way. We allowed Meredith to have a family in a way that she hasn’t had before. She’s got this relationship going with her sisters, and they really helped her through what was an extraordinarily traumatic time. Now she’s in a place where she’s in that step of What’s next? How do you grow up from there? And I think they’re all struggling with that. What are the next steps that come from when you’re ready to step out on your own?

Amelia has gotten married, what does that mean? I love the fact that the last episode was “Oh my God, what the heck am I doing?” because she did do something awfully fast with not that much thought put into it. So she’s married somebody. We’ve got Maggie, who is jumping out there and thinking like, “I’m going to find love with somebody,” and being completely oblivious to the social cues around her. And you’ve got Meredith who is dipping her toes in the water and trying to figure out if she even wants to be dipping her toes in the water. So for them it’s really about what’s next.

Speaking of what’s next, in the finale, Alex beat DeLuca within an inch of his life. Can you talk about the consequences of his actions both legally and professionally?
There are going to be some really big consequences. We talked about it a lot in the writer’s room, how we were going to deal with this, and what we thought made sense, and I really wanted to tell a story that felt true. What happens when you really screw up? Alex is a guy who has worked really hard to grow up, and be a responsible adult, and to not be the kid he was when we first met him. To find himself in this position I think is just interesting for him as a character because he is in this place of growth. He is a character who every single time he has become involved with a woman, that woman has, in some way, destroyed him. We are going to watch what happens for him now and how that challenges him and changes him.

Justin has intimated that we’re seeing an Alex that is more like the jerk of the earlier seasons.
I think people who are hurt revert to their less mature selves a lot of the time. He is hurt and he doesn’t quite know how to cope with that. What I love is that he and Meredith are trying to get through it together, and she’s trying to take care of him, and he’s trying to take care of her, and at times they don’t appreciate each other’s methods.

How will what Alex did divide the hospital?
I’m not as keen on the concept that it’s going to divide the hospital. It definitely poses some problems for the people in charge. It definitely poses some problems for Bailey, who has worked really hard to be in charge and to find a place of leadership, then to find herself in a situation that is really volatile, and a very volatile workplace is not a lot of fun. The idea that one of her employees has attacked another one of her employees, what is she going to do and how is she going to cope? That world is really interesting to watch her survive in, especially when it’s supposed to be a teaching environment; it’s supposed to be a nurturing environment.

And I love the fact that we’re going to get to know DeLuca a lot better, who we don’t know at all, and who we’ve just started to scratch the surface of. Now, because this thing has happened to him, he has found himself in a spotlight that he was not interested in ever being in.

How is what Alex did going to affect his relationship with Jo?
I think that is going to be the key. That relationship is going to be deeply affected — I don’t think that there’s any way it couldn’t be after what he did, after what happened. There’s no way to have that occur and to expect that there aren’t going to be any consequences.

One of the more shocking moments at the end of the season is that Jo Wilson is not actually Jo Wilson. Where did this idea come from and what more are we actually going to learn about her this season?
Oddly enough, that concept is something that we — the writers — have talked about for years, and have always been like, “Is this the right time? Is this the right time?” We’ve been trying to figure out when to deploy that. It felt right at this moment in time because Jo’s backstory has always been very intriguing to us, and this idea that she is now fully who she says she is, and that she is somebody who has reinvented herself. I love her as being somebody who has reinvented herself. I also love her as being somebody who has overcome a lot of really, really bad things to make something of her life. She’s a survivor. The idea that she’s a survivor and that very act of being that person is threatening to that relationship is interesting. The fact that Alex is a guy who his response is to beat somebody up is a little problematic.

You’re introducing a story of domestic violence this year with Jo’s past. How big will that feature and why was it important to showcase that this year?
I don‘t think that I ever think about doing things, like, “Oh, we’re doing a domestic violence story as an issue.” It felt like it was time to tell Jo’s story, and it felt like it was time to tell Jo’s story especially in the context of Alex, who he is and how he grew up. Alex is so defined by who he used to be and who he is trying to become, and so is Jo. So those stories were very interesting to me. Meredith suffered a violent attack last year and very much overcame it. This idea that women are often treated in this way is disturbing to me, but it’s also very interesting to me to get to tell the story of Jo from this perspective of somebody who has walked away from a past that happened so long ago, and might have to face it again.

How does Callie’s absence at the hospital resonate with all the other doctors?
We felt really good about it because of the way we got to let her go, surprisingly. I mean, it wasn’t what I expected, but it did feel surprising like, “Oh, wait, we did get to let her go and she did get to take her daughter with her.” So we’re not playing that there’s been a devastating loss. We’re playing that Callie went to New York, so that’s where Callie is, and it’s helpful to get to play it that way. There’s not as much of a big hole left, which is great. We’re playing that Arizona gets to go visit her daughter and her daughter gets to come see her, so it’s not this sense of loss. In our world, Callie still exists.

Is there room for her to return? And will you be introducing a new ortho doctor?
Yes, there’s always room in my world for pretty much everybody in the Grey’s family, I like to say, who is still alive. There’s always room for Callie Torres, and Sara knows that. We’ve talked about that a lot. And two, I don’t know that I’ve thought about a new ortho doctor. I don’t think of the doctors in terms of their specialties. It really is about “Oh, is this going to be an interesting character? Is that going to be an interesting character?” So I don’t know if we’re going to introduce a new ortho doc or not.

You previously mentioned Arizona would get a love interest last season. Are we finally seeing that this year?
We are. We’re absolutely going to see it. Jessica was very, very delightfully pregnant at the end of last year, and so she’s not in the first two episodes — which everybody brace yourselves for — because she’s taking a little bit of time off for kids, but then she’s back. I’m very excited to introduce a love interest for her, and to get to tell a story with her that lets her be who she is, and to see who she is post the relationships that she’s had. I think that’s going to be fun and interesting to do. And to do it organically, you know? You don’t want to just stick two people together. I want to do it organically and I want the audience to be rooting for it. So I think we’re going to have fun with it.

Do you know who that love interest is yet?
I do.

Is there anything you would like to share about this love interest?
Absolutely not.

Jackson and April, can you talk about how they’re coparenting this season?
Yeah. You know, we really had a lot of fun talking about, in a much lighter way, what it means to be uncoupled, to be divorced, and to have a kid, and how you do that? Like, how you do it with a new baby. The idea [is] that maybe they’re going to really try to do this in a healthy way, and is that healthy way going to feel so healthy when they still have feelings for each other? Those feelings are still there. Just because they couldn’t make it work doesn’t mean that they don’t still really care about each other. We’re going to get to do this in a lighter, more fun way, of how it feels to see your ex go out on a date, and do you try to sabotage it a little bit? There’s some flirting that happens. We think we can have a little fun with it versus being sort of dark and grim.

Can you talk a little bit about what we’re seeing for Bailey and Ben?
Yeah. With them too, the other thing that I really look forward to and I love is I love seeing this very healthy couple that truly loves each other, that can fight and get along and be sexy and feel real, that we can enjoy watching be a couple with all of the ups and downs of whatever that means. That feels rare on television. Everybody is always very dramatically one way or the other, and I think that there’s something delightful about watching this couple, that is going to make it, struggle through life. We’re going to really get to enjoy that, even if Bailey gets jealous of somebody, or even if he’s having a hard time with her job, there’s something lovely about watching them figure this thing out together.

How about for Webber as a doctor this year? Also, are we going to be seeing more of Webber and Maggie’s relationship?
We are going to be seeing more of Webber and Maggie’s relationship. We are also going to be seeing more of Webber as a leader and as a person who is taking care of the younger doctors. We’re also going to be seeing a little bit of Webber as a grandfather, which we think is very charming because he really is this wonderful guy who stepped into being a part of Catherine and Jackson’s family, which I think is wonderful. But yeah, we’re going to see him grow his relationship with Maggie, and grow his relationship with some of the other doctors that he’s mentoring.

What’s next for Stephanie?
We’re going to get to have some really interesting episodes with her, because I think that there is a lot of undiscovered country with her. I thought we had some really good camaraderie between Amelia and Stephanie. They were really interesting together last year and I loved getting to watch her grow as a surgeon and as a student. We’re going to really try to explore that some more. I also loved getting to tell the story of her having a love interest and what that was like and watching her in that way. So it’ll be really fun to do some more of that.

For Owen, what does his relationship with Riggs look like this year? Can they reconcile? And also, is his sister actually dead?
The first question, his relationship with Riggs is really a very large question of the season. How does that relationship reconcile, what does it look like? We were joking, like how does a man who is married to someone like Amelia, who loves to talk everything out and take all 12 steps of everything, how does somebody like him who doesn’t want to talk about anything, how does he cope with this when she’s a very much let’s heal kind of person? So watching him deal with this will be very interesting. As for whether or not the sister is dead, I think that’s interesting that people think that’s a question, but that’s an interesting question.

That you’re not going to answer.
Of course not.

Ontari and Lexa...

I’m getting major foreshadowing feels from 3x06 right now… and it fucking sucks. I mean, I’ve had this feeling for a while but I feel like now more than ever it’s highly likely and no longer really out there speculation.

When Lexa declares Carl Emerson’s punishment, I couldn’t stop myself from thinking this may end up being her fate as well.

Spoilers under the cut for anyone who is brave enough… (Also if you’re a shipper, there’s Clexa spec)

'Grey’s Anatomy' Stars and Creator Reveal 10 Spoilers for Season 13: Meredith's Love Triangle, Baby Drama, More! | Us Weekly

After a wedding, a baby and an explosive fight, the May 19 season finale of Grey’s Anatomy left nearly everyone in Grey-Sloan Memorial Hospital with unresolved conflicts. Here are 10 things to expect when the ABC drama returns for its 13th season on Thursday, September 22:

1. There is no time jump
Despite the show’s tendency to play with time shifts, season 13 will pick up right after Alex Karev (Justin Chambers) brutally beat up Andrew DeLuca (Giacomo Gianniotti). “You see the aftermath of their fight causing a ripple effect across the entire hospital,” Camilla Luddington, who plays Jo Wilson, tells Us Weekly. "People take sides, there’s confusion over what has actually happened and absolutely repercussions for the tornado of drama.”

"I was told all summer, don’t change anything about your look, come back exactly the way you left,” Jason George tells Us. "And then when I got back for the table read, I found out they meant it. This is, like, minutes later.” George, 44, who stars as compassionate doctor Ben Warren, adds that viewers should definitely get a refresher before sitting down for the season 13 premiere. "I’m telling everyone you need to go back and watch the finale so you’re up to speed,” he says. "You don’t want to jump on a train already doing 70 miles an hour!”

2. The Riggs-Meredith-Maggie love triangle will heat up
After Maggie Pierce (Kelly McCreary) revealed that she has feelings for Riggs (Martin Henderson) — a.k.a. the four-times-in-one-night stand of Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) — the drama will continue to play out between the half-sisters. "The writers are definitely having a lot of fun with that dynamic,” Henderson, 41, tells Us. "It’s dramatic, funny and sad all at the same time. I think it will take a while to work itself out as not everything is being put out on the table by all of the characters. It’s bound to get increasingly complicated.”

3. The sisters’ relationship is still a work in progress
“Meredith has Maggie still helping with the kids, and they’re going to have an interesting dynamic this year based on the whole Nathan love triangle thing,” Caterina Scorsone, who plays passionate Amelia Shepherd, told The Hollywood Reporter. “Even though Amelia is moving out of the house, the sister dynamic is going to be central to her story line.”

4. Jo may not tell Alex that she’s married
After witnessing Alex’s violent outburst, Jo is hesitant to tell him that she is still wed to her abuser. “Jo feels like her past puts not only her, but Alex too, in an extremely dangerous position,” Luddington, 32, tells Us. “She was worried that if she told Alex, he would have a knee-jerk reaction and perhaps do something to make it worse for them both.” While the Californication alum doesn’t elaborate on details of what the outcome will be, she explains that the fight hit too close to home for Jo. "There’s residual feelings about her own experience with physical violence in her home,” she says. “Now she’s witnessing an assault again by someone she loves. Emotionally she’s in a very complicated place. She’s torn.”

5. April and Jackson will — perhaps unsuccessfully— attempt to be a happy family
Following their divorce, April Kepner (Sarah Drew) and Jackson Avery (Jesse Williams) now must co-parent their newborn. “They’re going to really try to do this in a healthy way,” creator Shonda Rhimes revealed to Entertainment Weekly. “Is that healthy way going to feel so healthy when they still have feelings for each other?”

6. The drama following Amelia and Owen’s wedding won’t involve the pair themselves
“Immediately on the tail of Amelia and Owen’s wedding there’s big explosive drama that’s happening right away,” Scorsone told THR, noting that it doesn’t involve the couple. “On Grey’s Anatomy, it could be a literal explosion, but in this case, it’s emotionally explosive. It’s going to be a key story this year that a lot of people are going to be interested in.”

7. Jo’s ex could make an appearance
Luddington isn’t ruling out Jo’s ex reentering her life. ”That’s up to the writers to decide,” she tells Us. "However, Grey’s characters seem to have a hard time escaping their past.”

8. Meredith isn’t getting her fairy-tale ending — yet
"If Meredith Grey were 100 percent fully happy, the show would be over,” Rhimes said in May. "So maybe when the show ends, Meredith can be fully happy maybe. But if she is, we’re done. The journey would have to end for her. That would be it.”

9. Arizona will finally get a new love interest
After Callie (Sara Ramirez) left Seattle to be with Penny (Samantha Sloyan) in New York, her ex Arizona (Jessica Capshaw) will get her own romantic story as well. "I’m very excited to introduce a love interest for her,” Rhimes told EW. “And to get to tell a story with her that lets her be who she is, and to see who she is post the relationships that she’s had.”

10. The focus will be on the day-one characters
Despite the introduction to many new characters in the show’s 13 seasons, “There is going to be a lot of checking in with the original cast,” Scorsone tells THR. “We love them so much and there has been such a renaissance with the show that it’s nice to focus on the core pieces that have been there since the very beginning.”
