all about house

I’ve lived in this house for 6 years and still don’t know any of my neighbors names

A Slytherin who’s always going on about how they’re going to change the world and make all wizards equal in the eyes of the law and hopefully most of society.

A Slytherin that uses their persuasion to lift people’s self-confidence by convincing them they’re wonderful.

A Slytherin that doesn’t take stupid bigotry and is seen as obnoxious because they won’t let subtle jokes at the expense of others slide under the radar.

A Slytherin that uses their leadership skills to bring people together to achieve a common goal.

Just Slytherins being great people and utilizing their Slytherin traits to their advantage in the best way possible.

sounds for the houses:

Gryffindor:

  • the quiet crackle of fire in a warm room
  • her laughter after you finally kissed her
  • the first bird of the morning in a tent you set up by yourself
  • a train rolling by 
  • “i knew you could do it”
  • fall leaves underfoot
  • the soft padding of a wildcat
  • a tornado that’s too close for comfort
  • yelling yourself hoarse
  • hoofbeats

Hufflepuff:

  • the quiet chime of the oven timer 
  • shifting your legs in clean bedclothes
  • lazy summer afternoons, cicadas in the distance
  • “i’ll wait for you.”
  • her happy gasp when she sees you
  • the shush of ribbon around a giftbox
  • sifting flour
  • an empty echo in a dark canyon
  • drumrolls
  • purring

Slytherin:

  • the tapping of long nails on good wood
  • waves on a pebble shore
  • a crowd chanting your name
  • “you were right.”
  • her happy sigh when you pull her closer
  • the soft shush of a dancer’s feet 
  • good shoes clicking on tile floors
  • wolfpack howls
  • the silence of a snowy midnight 
  • a good engine idling

Ravenclaw:

  • rain on windowpanes
  • old leather creaking
  • the quiet strum of a guitar
  • quietly whispered poetry
  • good coffee machines
  • a paintbrush on fresh canvas
  • “that’s an incredibly good idea”
  • footfalls on library carpets
  • the inhale of her breath when she ducks her nose into an old book
  • wingbeats
All About Slytherin House

Slytherins Are: Ambitious, driven, adaptable, realistic, determined, prepared, perfectionistic, self-reliant, charming, analyzing, and subtle. 

Special Qualities: They are able to separate their idea of themselves from what they do, they thrive on praise, and they love to use their intelligence as a tool to achieve their goals. 

Slytherins Are Not: Disloyal (selectively loyal, however), and do not disregard the opinions of others. They take everything to heart. 

How To Treat A Slytherin: Include them and be kind to them. Slytherins take every action to heart, and though they may not show it on the outside, they inwardly keep a score against you. 

Things to Remember: Not all Slytherins are purposefully mean because they care about the impression they give. If a Slytherin is mean to you, take it to heart because you must have done something wrong. 

A Friend Of A Friend, These Strangers At The Party Never Paid

summary: “I left phone number on the bathroom stall wall and you text me about your day and your frustrations for a month & it’s really nice and cute but I still don’t know who you are” AU

words: 12.7k

warnings: smut, mentions of smoking, alcohol/being drunk, lack of imagination as far as fic titles are concerned

Can you believe this was meant to be 3k?? I honeslty don’t know what happened there. all I know is that I have five exams in less than three weeks that I should be revising for and instead did this. yikes I hope this was worth it. (also pray4me that I don’t fail everything) x

Also on the topic of exams the actual reason I wrote this now was bc I’m kinda not gonna be writing for a while because of Lovely responsibilities and school stuff and revision so I’m gonna leave yall with this before I’m off Working and doing fun stuff that adults do.

I hope this is ok!!

Dan’s halfway through skipping History when he does it.

He doesn’t know why he did it – he really doesn’t, he was just kind of bored one afternoon and happened to be carrying a Sharpie and hey, it’d just be a laugh, right? In a school like this, what’s the worst that could come out of leaving his phone number on a cubicle wall?

His pen squeaks across the pale blue paint, already tainted with curse words and penis drawings and tipp-ex and “Call _____ for a good time ;)”. He supposes the caretakers have given up with trying to cover up the graffiti – there are still thin layers of paint and chipped plaster coating every inch of the stall walls, at least showing attempted coverage, but people had just written over them, scribbles of song lyrics and “never got caught” tattooing every inch of the previously blank walls. No amount of assemblies or threats of “whoever did this-“, inserts picture of something someone had written about the Maths teacher on the hall projector, “is seriously going to pay” from the head teacher had ever stopped anyone, so, really, what does Dan have to lose? Sure, they could trace the phone number, but that doesn’t prove anything – he could just as easily throw on the ‘innocent’ act and say it was his friend.

07843983276, he writes. He doesn’t sign it off with any comment, nor kisses, not even a smiley face let alone a winking one. He just leaves it there, in a kind-of conspicuous place just above eye-level on the right hand side of the door, eleven digits amidst many others.

ENEMIES.

So in astrology, the 11th House represents your friends and community, and the 1st House represents yourself. The 4th House represents your family. It’s almost like astrology has something to say about the various types of people we encounter in life.

So where the hell are your enemies?

Information about your enemies can be found in the 7th and 12th House.

7th House - For the sake of understanding, many people like to mention that the 7th House is the house of relationships, and nowadays, relationships usually have a romantic connotation that comes with it. While it’s very true that the 7th House can show information about our more committed relationships, The 7th House actually rules over more than just romantic relationships, and enemies are included. The enemies in the 7th House are the people you meet at first, either thinking they’re great but in the end, you can’t stand them. In other words, these people are your open enemies. You know these people don’t work well with you. Looking into the sign that rules the 7th House and the planets in it can give you insight about your open enemies. It’s also important to note that the Descendant is the cusp of the 7th House. The Descendant is the opposite of your Ascendant, which is YOU. Oppositions can cause attraction, but problems which can manifest in many relationships, hence the 7th House, the House of romantic all relationships.

12th House - If the Descendant is across from your Ascendant, in full view for you to see, then the 12th House rules your secret enemies since it is behind your Ascendant, in other words, you. These are the people you don’t see sabotaging you. These are the people who will subconsciously hurt you. The 12th House is the house of secrets and the subconscious after all. These are the people you won’t know you clash with until it’s too late, or the people you clash with and you just don’t know why. Again, checking the sign at the cusp of the 12th House and the planets in the House will also give characteristics of your secret enemies.

Riko is not only Chika’s girlfriend, but she’s also basically her mom. I find that both weirdly endearing and adorable.

can I get some good vibes, pls?

I sent in my application (about a week ago) to a job at one of the libraries in Tulsa. it’s full-time, includes benefits, and pays a salary that would let me afford a NICE apartment. not just like, nice-for-our-broken-millenial-dreams

like

this bitch has a pool, a yoga studio, a fitness room with exercise equipment, a tv lounge / mini library / open kitchen space

every apartment has a 17 x 9 balcony I could put planters in for flowers

all stainless steel appliances AND pets are allowed

I would only be 1 mile (~5 min by car) away from the library, right next to the riverside with jogging paths, and tulsa is a very liberal city in a very red state!

so yeah, this could be life-changing and a huge improvement for me and I’d really appreciate prayer, well-wishes, just any sort of positive thought you could send out for me
