fiona approves

RAVENCLAW: “My father always says, ‘Never trust anyone who has a TV bigger than their bookshelf.’ So I make sure I read. Back at home, I just put up a massive bookcase and asked everyone I know and love to help me fill it with their favourite books. It’s been quite nice because I’ve learned a lot about my friends and family from what they’ve been giving me. A book says a lot about a person.” –Emilia Clarke

  • Fiona Widdershins : What was that weird handshake you and Stepfather just shared?
  • Klaus Baudelaire : The secret coded father-suitor handshake. I grabbed his wrist to warn him I found you desirable. He then circled my pinkie with his fist as a sign of tentative approval.
  • Fiona Widdershins : ...what happens if the father disapproves?
  • Klaus Baudelaire : Broken pinkie. It's an extremely straightforward form of communication, Fiona.

HUFFLEPUFF: “It’s all going to be okay. Trust me, I’m a doctor. But it’s up to us to make it okay. It’s time to be positively rebellious and rebelliously positive. As long as we stand up for what we believe in, don’t give in to anger or violence, look out for the little guy, keep an eye on the big guys, refuse to keep our mouths shut, and just generally try not to be dicks, every little thing is going to be alright.” –David Tennant


“I may not live to see our glory!
But I will gladly join the fight!
And when our children tell our story…
They’ll tell the story of tonight

Raise a glass to freedom
Something they can never take away
No matter what they tell you
Raise a glass to the four of us
Tomorrow there’ll be more of us
Telling the story of tonight”

–Lin-Manuel Miranda (Hamilton: The Story of Tonight)


“Legacy. What is a legacy?
It’s planting seeds in a garden you never get to see
I wrote some notes at the beginning of a song someone will
sing for me
America, you great unfinished symphony, you sent for me
You let me make a difference
A place where even orphan immigrants
Can leave their fingerprints and rise up
I’m running out of time. I’m running and my time’s up
Wise up. Eyes up”  

–Lin Miranda Manuel (Alexander Hamilton: Hamilton: The World Was Wide Enough)
