Zabini gave a tiny little cough that was clearly supposed to indicate amused skepticism. An angry voice burst out from behind Slughorn. 

“Yeah, Zabini, because you’re so talented … at posing… .” 

“Oh dear!” chuckled Slughorn comfortably, looking around at Ginny, who was glaring at Zabini around Slughorn’s great belly. “You want to be careful, Blaise! I saw this young lady perform the most marvelous Bat-Bogey Hex as I was passing her carriage! I wouldn’t cross her!” 

Zabini merely looked contemptuous.

Blaise Zabini has a type.

Tall, willowy, graceful and elegant and French-manicured and soft-spoken—he dates girls with pearls at their necks and diamonds in their ears, cashmere sweater dresses slipping down one shoulder and daringly-colored lambskin boots slouchy around their thighs. Their lingerie is lacy, delicate, meant to be seen rather than simply worn, and they leave his sheets smelling like a rose garden after it rains. They order Nicoise salads for dinner, and they inevitably declare English Literature as their majors of choice when the time finally comes, and they’re well-bred, well-connected, products of prep schools with longer waitlists for admission than most of the restaurants in New York.

And the degree to which they don’t remind him of his mother—in all the ways that matter, at least—is inarguable.

You know whats fun?


You know what makes people happy?


You know what brings people together?


You know whats not fun?

Bashing other peoples ships.

So don’t do it!

  • Ginny:You’re cute.
  • Blaise:What am I, a puppy?!
  • (Awkward silence)
  • Blaise:A puppy is cute, a toddler is cute. Do you want to pinch my cheeks and make baby noises at me?
  • Ginny:Jeez, you can’t even take a compliment!?
  • Blaise:Thank you, if you think I’m good looking, but I'm not a kid. There’s not one cute thing about me. Good looking men my age are handsome, not cute.
  • Ginny:You know what you are? An asshole!
  • Blaise:Now you’re speaking the truth!
Keep your hate out of our tags!

Damn it how hard is it to understand this simple idea? If you hate on a ship good for you. Go ahead and rant all you want.

But for crying out loud just keep it out of our tags.

We don’t want to see it.

We don’t need to see it.

We don’t care what you think.

We don’t need to explain ourselves.

Nor do we care that you ‘just don’t get it’ or ‘think it’s disgusting’.

Not all of us like the fact that Harry ended up with Ginny and Ron ended up with Hermione. We ship what we ship and that’s about it. No need to explain or defend ourselves. We don’t care if it’s AU. And we sure as hell don’t need anyone’s approval because, as crazy as it sounds, not all of us care about canon.

That’s the whole point! Making worlds within our fandom. Creating the ‘what ifs’ and ‘what could have happened’ in our OTPs.

You don’t like it…not our freakin problem.

Just keep your narrow minded hatred and lack of understanding out of our tags and go cry to someone who actually cares.
