On Slytherin Primaries

For a broader overview of our system, which we suggest you read first, please go here!

Slytherins believe in the importance of taking care of their own. Everyone else is a person, but so are they, so a Slytherin’s job, before everything else, is taking care of them and theirs. This makes what Slytherin are known for, their ambition and ruthlessness, stand out strikingly even while a Slytherin’s core is not inherently selfish or cut-throat.

All of the Houses contain people with great ambitions and great desire for accomplishment and the furthering of their goals. Gryffindors will take on the world to do what they think is right, and are willing to make sacrifices and overrule those who would compromise on what needs to be done, and that’s nothing if not ambition. What makes the Slytherin ambition stand out so significantly is that it’s seen as a selfish ambition, and a guiltlessly selfish one at that. That drive is tied to personal achievement instead of idealistic achievement, and that makes it easier to point at.

But this is key: selfish ambition is idealistic ambition for a Slytherin. A Slytherin’s first priority is to their loved ones not because they love deeper or harder than the other Houses (they don’t), but because it is wrong to betray or abandon your people and right to defend and promote them. Loyalty and defense of your own is an inherent part of the Slytherin morality.

Crusher- “Do we have time to see your office?”

Picard- “Yes, of course. Why not?”

Whalen- “Captain, mind if I join you?”

Crusher & Picard- Really?!

Data (adopting terrible accent for no good reason ‘cos he’s only read about this period)- “Yeah, me too, boss. I’d love to take a gander.”

Crusher & Picard- Oh FFS!

anonymous asked:

Do you think Data has other body hair?

*pulls down projection screen and starts power point*

well i believe he is able to produce body hair… though as we can see here in this cap from datalore… 

on a regular basis he doesn’t have chest hair. unless he thought it would be inconvenient to have it when they looked him over to help with the assembly of lore and decided to get rid of it

but then take a look at these caps from a fistful of data’s

arm hair!!! and lots of it! like look at that forest!!

and y’all are probably thinking “but emily, in that episode, the characters from the holo program turned into data! maybe he just adopted the arm hair from the character!” 

but take a look at tHIS:

THE DUDE’S ARMS ARE AS SMOOTH AS AN ANDROIDS BOTTOM!! so data must always have wild untamed arm hair since it’s not part of the program

and then we also cannot forget to bring up the classic data riker beard…

in conclusion, it is a FA C T that data can produce other body hair where ever he pleases…. and apprantly he really likes arm hair
