and i bet he worked extremely hard on making it

I’ve been thinking about Slytherin a little bit lately. I’ve been listening to Half-Blood Prince (book on tape) and Dumbledore mentions that there is a fund for disadvantaged wizards. It makes me wonder how many outcasts like young Tom Riddle came to Hogwarts, children with no family and no inheritance. Surely these children, and many other children from poor and/or abusive backgrounds, must have been determined to make the most of their newfound talent. I imagine a LOT of Slytherins must be from unfortunate backgrounds. Hardscrabble social climbers would be right up Slytherin’s alley. Which leads me to also wonder how Pureblood Slytherins take care of these students. Surely, with the extreme loyalty found among their rank, Slytherins must be extremely protective of all their students, poverty-stricken ones included. I can’t imagine that Slytherins would allow a fellow Slytherin to walk the halls in shabby robes or carrying obviously worn books. We see that Lucius takes Snape under his wing when he comes to school. I guess what I’m really getting at is that I think Slytherin house would have worked really hard to assimilate the less-fortunate students in order to make them feel more at home. They may have had second-hand books but I’ll bet anything other Slytherins would make sure they still had the nicest of the hand-me-downs, perhaps even keeping their own stock of better-looking supplies.

anonymous asked:

One thing you like about each BTS member? It could be physical features or personality anything

Physical Features:
Seokjin: Shoulders/Back.
Yoongi: Jawline.
Hoseok: Dimples.
Namjoon: Body Proportions.
Jimin: Eyes/Lips.
Taehyung: Brows/T-Zone.
Jungkook: Eyes/Thighs.
OT7: Smiles

Personality:
Seokjin: I love how his old man (아재), dorky personality contradicts the “cold” handsome image Big Hit “gave” him. I love that he eats what he likes and started Eat Jin to show fans that BTS (and him) were eating well. I love that he loves himself and isn’t afraid to say he is handsome and throw hand kisses.
Yoongi: I love that he is “tsundere” (he used this to describe himself). He can seem cold, but he is actually super kind and caring. I love how he pours out his soul into his music (especially with his lyrics in Agust D). I love how he can be sitting down seriously for one second then jump up dancing, playing with members, doing aegyo in another second.
Hoseok: I love his ability to be cute for the fans even though the members (and he himself) say that he is actually quite serious. He really pours his heart into being a better artist and always strives to improve. I love that he watches fans reaction videos and such and reads mentions after BTS releases things. 
Namjoon: I love how he is so eloquent when he talks? Whenever he gives ending ments or when he writes on the fancafe, I feel so captivated and inspired by his words. He is always supporting all of the members (if you watch his WINGS v app, MV reaction, and Music Core reactions) and is a great leader.
Jimin: I love his hard-working personality and how caring he is. He is always the first to comfort members whether this is in public or behind the scenes (ex. checking their chairs during 하루만 promotions to make sure they were safe, hugging Taehyung and Jungkook during Muster, etc.) He always is caring for people whether it is BTS, fans, or even strangers (ex. guiding a Vietnamese actress to stage at AAA).
Taehyung: I love his love for rapping and Cypher. If he wasn’t in BTS, I bet he would be their fan. Although he is extremely good looking, he doesn’t mind being “ugly” and real with fans. He purposely makes “ugly” faces and even took the “ugly” photos for his birthday so the members could upload them on Twitter. 
Jungkook: I love how he is introverted. In my opinion, there are not a lot of idols who are introverted. Although he is introverted, he was able to break out of his shell as he got more comfortable with the camera and ARMYs and being in the spotlight. He is so talented in whatever he does, but he can also be dorky which I love.
OT7: Love and appreciation for fans and those who support them as well as each other. Modesty and respect for everyone. They call us their universe, they say we complete them, they say not to worry about them and feel sorry towards them because we give them so much more love than they give us (in their opinion).

I'm sorry not sorry~

It’s really upsetting how some people are talking about EXO and saying “They don’t know any better…”, “They grew up believing that..” stop all that bullshit! People are raised with a supposed ‘pre concieved’ notion, but you can always change it~ 

For example, look at the Ghanaian model Sam Okyere he started out as a student in Korea and now he’s a well know name in Korea. So when you say “Isn’t it regular for them to like pale girls, or only Korean women?” You’re just making stupid excuses for them. They know what’s right and what’s wrong to say, especially when you influence as many as they do.

Here’s another example, I was watching a variety show where they had asked Onew of SHINee “who’s the beautiful noona who caught you eye first?" and he had chosen a beautiful noona from Nigeria name Eufrasia. Also, in an interview early last year (I think) they had asked Yongguk his 'Ideal american type?’ He had pointed to the interviewer, who was a gorgeous dark skinned female named Morgan. So truly, it’s not about how you were raised or "what you know.”

Also, stop bringing up how much more albums either one of them sell. Album sales don’t mean SHIT. In the long run it’s about their personalities and skill that will make them successful.

Like, Chanyeol’s racial comments may be funny to him and others, but not to everyone. Saying that someone resembles a black chair is not only rude, but that’s extremely racist, because what would he say if an actual african american person was in front of him?

Like, Lay’s comments about gay men, “not being real men” is over the borderline of rude, because the last time a checked he wasn’t showing any type of manliness in any type of way.

And Baekhyun’s comments about members being like autistic children and high school girls being sluts. I bet he wouldn’t dare ever say that to an autistic child or teenage girl’s face, not only because it’s rude, but it hurts people.

I’m not saying that I don’t like EXO, to be honest I really respect their success as hard working idols. Plus, it’s not only them who do this, but what I am saying that I really hate their certain personality traits and tendencies. I also hate when fans make extremely dumbass excuses on their behalf, attempting to justify their un-apologetic behavior . They have their own mouths, and they have their own brains.

They make their own choices, so why are you making the consequences that come with those choices yours?
