Everyone seems to think that all the hidden corridors and moving staircases are intentional, because the founders were a bit insane (which is true). But what if most of it wasn’t intentional? What if it’s the cumulative result of generations of young witches and wizards learning magic and all the stray magic floating about?
Like, what if that one stair poor Neville keeps getting stuck in was the result of someone trying to pull a prank on their friend in 1824 and no one could figure out a counter curse? Or the moving staircases were the result of too many jinxes and missed spells and no one really knows why they move or when they started (but Hermione did find the first recorded instance of a moving staircase in 1532 in Hogwarts, a History)
I feel like all those quirks in the castle are much more the result of the school just being so saturated with magic and mischief that it’ll never be a remotely normal building again.
What it’s like to be in Fifth Harmony, from the girls of Fifth Harmony
AKA a noncomprehensive list of the things the girls have said and done that suggests they have/had a miserable work environment that is detrimental to their mental and physical health.
Also, I feel like we’re forced to spend so much time parsing out like the range of truth, with the groups behavior over the past year, and the deeply confusing statments; that it’s useful to acknowledge the things that have come directly from them.
In response to Lauren to saying they’re treated like slaves: “I know, I know”.
*Unfollows the group Instagram account after the statements about Camila leaving (statements that have her name signed to them btw).*
Billboard Int. (talking about low points): “She keeps the details vague, but cites “awful mental health situations” and “pain on a lot of levels.”
Apologizing to fans for not speaking to them before(?) “I’m sorry I couldn’t come down today. They were actually working us to the fucking bone.”
Is sick enough to be hospitalized, but somehow the girls only had like an hours notice that they would have to perform without her?
- I feel like it’s worth noting she was 17 at the time. Would they have made her perform if she was of age?
Has anxiety so severe she can’t finish a show.
Billboard Int. “I was having terrible anxiety, nonstop. My heart would beat really fast the whole day. Two hours after I woke up, I’d need a nap because my body was so hyperactive. It was so eff – sorry, but it was so f–ed up. I was scared of what would happen to me, of the things my brain might tell me.”
*Looks vauguely miserable for a year and a half, with lots of comments about stifled artistry*
*Leaves the group.*
LAUREN JAUREGUI (just a bastion of honesty):
Leaked Audio: ”They make decisions on a regular basis to fuck us over to make us literally slaves, literally slaves, Ally. We’re doing fucking labor everyday and we see nothing.“
In response to a fan asking what she’d change about the music industry: “I think I personally would like to change how um, hmmm gosh, I don’t like how um sort of like raw talent, and the naivete is that comes with that, is sort of taken advantage of a lot of the time. I don’t like that they use people who have dreams, and who genuinely love art put them in a web of contracts and like take from them and take so much from them.”
- She’s about as subtle as a sledgehammer.
When asked for advice about going into the music industry: “Read your contract.”
Billboard Int. “They sell you this present of rainbows and butterflies, and as a 16-year-old that’s what I bought. It’s why I did X Factor and why I ended up in a group. But then you’re working so hard, so young.”
”I love touring, but the schedule traumatized me,“ says Hansen bitterly. ”I was like, ‘What kind of job are we doing?' “
*Quotes ‘Bad Things’ on Instagram to accompany a picture of her and Camila but changes the lyrics to say I’m proud of you and I love you, a week before Camila’s exit is announced*
*Likes Camila’s response to the band’s statement, in which Camila essentially says they’re lying.*
Original Poster: Man, that girl keeps her mouth shut and her nose clean. She’s said some things about the horrors of social media and racism in the past, but I don’t recall her every really saying anything specific that falls in line with the tone of the other girls.
Also from Billboard Int. : “Still, ever since 5H finished third on the show (also like 1D), something has been driving the machine, and not without cost. By 11 a.m. at the hotel, everyone is crying.”
This is irrelevant but it made me laugh, because their responses are so predictable.
Speaking about the succes of Trump (May of 2016):
“Hansen isn’t so sure.“It could go both ways,” she says hesitantly. “If Trump becomes president, he wouldn’t be afraid to step on toes. And he’ll be feared by the world.” Jauregui looks horrified, Kordei baffled. Cabello shrugs and cheerily says, “Politics! Moving on!”
