SLYTHERIN: “In place of the Dark Lord you will set up a Queen. And I shall not be dark, but beautiful and terrible as the Morning and the Night! Fair as the Sea and the Sun and the Snow upon the Mountain! Dreadful as the Storm and the Lightning! Stronger than the foundations of the earth. All shall love me and despair!” -JRR Tolkien (Galadriel: Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring)

It’s common knowledge that Slytherins love Tolkien lore, and are about as familiar with it as they are with their own textbooks. Not only do they love Tolkien’s interesting & magical Middle Earth, but they love how his stories have a place for everyone to be a hero no matter their personality, social status, race, or background. When first years are feeling sad & inadequate about their studies or what they have to contribute to their house, it’s very common to hear older Slytherins whispering encouragements to them like “Even the smallest person can change the course of the future.”

“Ron Howard would never ask you to do anything he wasn’t prepared to do himself,” Blanchett said about making his 2001 film “The Missing.” “There was a scene where my character had to have a tarantula crawl on her. I said, ‘I’ll do anything for you Ron but I have a deep-seated fear of spiders and where I come from, every spider can kill you in about two-and-a-half seconds. He got down on the floor and put the tarantula on him, and said her name was Tara, and it crawled on him and he sat there and the tarantula was on his crotch. So you had to think, 'okay, I will do it.’ If you ever encounter a tarantula, they get scared and freeze. She got so frightened, she didn’t move enough and they fucking well cut the scene.”
He says he found a bunch of tiny hairy people in the woods that get wrinkly and die in a few decades. No, I don’t know what he’s been drinking, and yes, I did tell him to sober up and get back here and do his job.
