he's ambitious and clever but he also has such a good heart

Amerindian signs

The Otter  January 20 - February 18

Originally posted by artyscorner

A little original, adventurous and unorthodox, the Otter is an animal difficult to identify. His methods are perceived as unconventional, and they are often not the first ones chosen by the rest of the community to carry out a task. This is a serious mistake on the part of the others - because even if they are sometimes strange, the ideas of the Otter are actually, in general, rather effective.

Yes, the Otter has an unusual way of seeing things, but it gives humans an extraordinary imagination and brilliant intelligence. Often very intuitive and capable of a great sense of perception, the Otter makes a very good companion, and can be very attentive and loving.
In a positive environment, with love and attention, the Otter is sensitive, sympathetic, courageous and honest. When left out, the Otter may be unscrupulous, rebellious and isolated.

The Wolf  February 19 - March 20

Originally posted by won-der-land89

Deeply emotional and passionate, the Wolf is the animal par excellence of love and passion, both in the physical and spiritual sense of the term. The Wolf knows that love is the greatest of natural forces, and he is entirely capable of supplying it with all his might.
If one considers his desire for freedom and ferocious independence, one realizes that the wolf is full of contradictions. He may be Solitary Wolf, or Mother Wolf, protective and filled with love. The Wolf needs his freedom, but he is also gentle and full of compassion.

In a positive environment, the wolf is intensely passionate, generous, deeply affectionate and gentle. When left out, the wolf may be recalcitrant, obsessed, vindictive and resentful.

The Falcon  March 21 - April 19 

Originally posted by sdzsafaripark

The Falcon is the animal of the born heads. It can always be consulted in order to have a clear and impartial judgment in delicate situations. The Falcon never loses time, knows how to strike / act at the right moment and beat the iron as long as it is warm. When something has to be accomplished, he knows how to realize it and act accordingly.

Very persistent, and endowed with a strong sense of initiative, the Falcon is a born leader and he wants to triumph. He is sometimes considered vain - but he is often right in his opinions, so this little touch of arrogance is understood and accepted by others.

In a positive environment, the Falcon can accomplish great things, and he knows how to feed passion and fire in relationships, while keeping some compassion. When left out, the Hawk may be vain, impolite, intolerant, impatient, and too sensitive.

The Beaver  April 20 - May 20

Originally posted by pakkastassu

Take charge, adapt, to overcome the obstacles … Here is the Castor’s motto. Very talented for trade-related things, the Beaver knows how to do the job with maximum efficiency and plenty of aplomb. Strategic and cunning, the Castor is a force that can be relied on for everything that is business, diplomatic and combat.
You have to think twice about whether you want to challenge the Beaver verbally and play the smartest with him - because his mind and mental acuity are sharp as razor blades. The Beaver seems to have everything for him, but his tendency to want to always do things the way he wants otherwise nothing can get him into trouble.

Yes, the Beaver is clever, but the bearers of this Totem may have to work their sense of tact. In a positive environment, Beaver can be compassionate, generous, helpful and loyal. When left behind, the Beaver may be nervous, cowardly, possessive, and somewhat arrogant.

The Stag/Deer  May 21 - June 20

Originally posted by kryzx

This Totem animal is in a way the muse of the Amerindian zodiac. The Stag inspires, it is filled with life and its spirit turns a hundred per hour. Featuring a “tailor-made” sense of humor, the Deer has a certain amount of talent to make almost anyone laugh. He can speak and speak verbally, and he loves conversations in general.
This, combined with his natural intelligence, makes the stag a guest of choice for parties and dinners, as it will always set the mood and entertain others. He is particularly aware of the things that surround him, and he is also very conscious of his own appearance … Some will say of him that he is a little self-centered. However, they will not blame him because he is very sympathetic and affable, which tilts the balance in his favor.

In a positive environment, the natural joy of life and the sparkling personality of the deer radiate even more around it. It emanates a force of inspiration for all positive and affectionate relationships. Left, the stag can be selfish, impatient, lazy and have mood swings.

The Woodpecker  June 21 - July 21

Originally posted by scientificphilosopher

The Woodpeckers are in principle the most attentive of all Totem animals. They are always listening, with a strong sense of empathy and understanding of others. It is a sign that one must seek when one needs comfort and help.
They make very good parents, friends and partners. They also tend to be naturally frugal, resourceful and organized.

In a positive environment, the Woodpeckers are devoted, loving and very romantic. When left behind, they can become possessive, edgy, jealous and embittered.

The Salmon  July 22 - August 21

Originally posted by wavegrower

Electrical but concentrated, intuitive and intensely creative, Salmon have fishing, to say the least! Their energy is palpable. Naturally motivating, their confidence and enthusiasm is very contagious for others.
Even when their ideas seem too far-fetched to function, they still manage to embark with others. Generous, intelligent and intuitive, it is no wonder that the Salmon have no difficulty in making friends!
This Totem also express a deep need to have a goal to achieve, a function, an objective. And when they embark on adventure, they know how to find volunteers to rally them to their cause!

In a positive environment, the Salmon is stable, calm, sensual and able to give a lot. When left behind, humans born under his sign can become selfish, vulgar and intolerant.

The Bear  August 22 - September 21

Originally posted by mizar113

Pragmatic and methodical, the Bear is the Totem to be called when an inflexible and upright hand is needed. Its practical, placid and weighted aspect makes it an excellent trading partner. It is often the voice of reason, in most scenarios, and it works well in duo with the Owl, which it complements and with which it restores balance. The Bear is also endowed with an enormous heart and unbounded generosity.
However, many do not even realize it because the Bear tends to be very modest, discreet and a little shy.

In a positive and loving environment, this Totem abounds with love and generosity in return. He also has a capacity for patience and a temperate character, which makes him an excellent teacher and mentor. Left behind, the Bear may be skeptical, slow, petty and reclusive.

The Raven  September 22 - October 22

Originally posted by nitratediva

Extremely enthusiastic, naturally enterprising, the raven is a sacred charmer! It seems natural to him. One recognizes in him his energy and his lightness, and one often asks his ideas or his opinions.
It is simply because the Raven is a great idealist, and he knows how to be diplomatic and ingenious and clever.

In a positive environment, the Raven is easy to live, friendly and open, it can be as romantic and sweet. It is endowed with a certain patience and a natural intuition. When left out, the Raven can be inconsistent, demanding, vindictive and corrosive.

The Snake  October 23 - November 22

Originally posted by fencehopping

Most Shamans were born under the sign of the Snake, and it is the fetish animal of those who are devoted to the world of spirits. Those who are guided by the Snake are naturally spiritual and connected to the other worlds. They are easily attracted to ethereal kingdoms, and make excellent spiritual guides. The Snake is also respected for its ability to heal and heal, and it excels in the medicinal and medical field.
The preoccupations of the serpent for the unseen and the untouchable often lead others to find them mysterious, cold and even frightening, for they seem detached from the real world. True, the snake can be secret and have a dark side - it is also extremely sensitive, devoted to others and thoughtful.

In a positive environment, the snake can be passionate, inspiring, humorous, helpful and vigilant. When left out, the Snake may become depressed, violent, and prompt to abnormal mood changes.

The Owl  November 23 - December 21

Originally posted by ofallingstar

Changing and light as the wind, the Owl is difficult to pin down. With a warm, natural, sociable temperament, the Owl seems to be the friend of the world. Those born under his omen are known to throw themselves headlong into life, a hundred miles an hour, and adore adventure.
This can turn against her, for the Owl can be thoughtless, negligent, dizzy or even unconscious. The people guided by her make excellent artists, professors and environmentalists. However, they are extremely adaptable and versatile, allowing them to focus on virtually any field they want.

In a positive environment, the Owl is sensitive, enthusiastic, and has a great ability to listen. The owl may be excessive, too indulgent, and inconsistent.

The Goose  December 22 - January 19

Originally posted by cmdrkitten

If you want something to be done, go to the Goose. Persevering, determined and ambitious, the goose sets goals to accomplish and knows how to achieve it. The Goose is determined to succeed in what it wants to achieve, no matter what the price is - not to have the approval of others, because they are fighting against themselves and their internal enemy.
People born under the auspices of the Goose are naturally inspired and seem driven by an invisible force that drives them to realize things.
When their character is tempered by the loving presence of their family and friends, they can excel with the support of others and achieve virtually everything they undertake.

In a positive environment, the Goose can be very passionate, funny, sociable and even sensual. However, when left out, the goose may fall into obsession or addiction, which can cause its loss.

Thank you Running Man

Today, same as Wednesday, is not a good day. I woke up, read the news and well….Running man, my favorite show for like 7 years is going to be cancelled. Honestly, I preferred that over Kang Ho Dong joining. I’m not really fond of him, you see, but somehow deep down I didn’t want Running Man to end ever. After family outing was over, it was a bit empty, I kept on looking for similar shows, but none caught my eye and suddenly RM started, I would come home Monday thinking about the new Running Man episode. My mondays were never boring, because of Running Man and to see that suddenly it’s gonna stop, it breaks my heart. But the only thing I can do is to thank all the cast and the staff for these amazing years of laughter.


Thank you Yoo Jae Suk for being who you are. An awesome MC, a jokester, Yoo hyuk, Grasshopper, for your rivalry with Jong kook which was always funny, for your “outburst” with Haha and Kwangsoo, for being Ji suk jin’s sunflower, for your finger hearts or however is named, an overall honest person. You are one of the reasons why I started watching RM. Coming from Family outing and already knowing you was like a plus and you grew on me. I now know why people call you Yooneunim. Sincerely thank you.



Thank you Kim Jong Kook for being the Tiger and Mr. Capable. I also knew you from Family outing but man, you started to be more talkative with some time XD. Thanks for being the capable one, the scary chaser XD, the guy who would glare to his hyungs with no problem, the hyung with the kids who would get scolded every now and the, for being Coach kim and try to teach athletes how to do their jobs, for being the muscle guy and more.



Thank you Song Ji hyo for being the kind of actress who is not afraid to get dirty just because she has an image to maintain as other actresses or idols. Thanks for being a woman who can stand its own against all the males in the cast, let’s all remember one of the latest episodes where they had to piggyback the girls and neither Gary nor Kwang soo could move because Jihyo would squeeze them (I was cracking up,for real) ; thanks for being Meong ji, the girl who can fall sleep almost anywhere, worth mentioning the Jenga tower. Thanks for being part of one of the longest love-lines out there, the monday couple, thanks for being part of the candy alliance, the kwang-mong siblings that I seriously love, the song-song couple, spartace and so on. Thanks for being such an ace.


Thank you Kang Gary for being Gary-ssi and Random Mr, Capable. When you appeared for the first time…I didn’t know who you were, I just didn’t know about Leesang or the hip-hop scene in south korea but by far, I could tell you would fit well in the show. You always had the most normal and humane reactions ever, your speech with -seumdwa was always something that I don’t know why, it made me smile​. Thank you for being oblivious Gary, peaceful Gary, Random Mr. Capable, part of the monday couple that most people love. Thank you for being the amazing person you are.



Thank you HaHa for being the kid of the show, for being the schemer and cool person that you are. I already knew you from Infinite Challenge and although the characters on both shows are similar, they are not the same. I could always tell Haha is a smart cookie. He’s clever and witty and I have always laughed whenever he got annoyed either by Yoo Jae suk, Ji hyo or the guests. Also, thank you for being the “dongsaeng” to “uri hyung”, Time controller, Haroro, Haha the playboy or the kid who wants to be the villain. And as your stage name, thank you for the laughs.


Thank you Ji suk Jin for being the old ambitious guy of the show. At first, I admit that I didn’t like him, I always felt he was annoying and was craving for attention but as time passed by, well, I saw he was trying to be funny and honestly for a person his age, it must’ve been difficult to be running around with no problem. Thank you for being the race starter, the impala, Jaesuk’s sunflower, the only cast member who always was ready to face the female guests with no problem, the old guy with the cheesy lines. Thank you for being in the traitors club with Kwang Soo and in particular, thank you for being Wangko ahahahha


Thank you Lee kwang soo. What can I say about him? Similar to Ji suk jin, at first I didn’t like him, the whole framing and betraying simply wasn’t my style but over the time, his character grew on me. He is like a gem for the variety show scene of south korea and an awesome actor too. Thank you for being the giraffe, framer Kwangsoo, avatar Kwangsoo, traitor Kwangsoo,kwangtoad,  unlucky Kwangsoo and a million of other nicknames. Thank you Kwangsoo for being the gem that the show needed.

Last but not least. Thank you Joong Ki. When running man started I was relatively new to dramas so I didn’t know what types of drama he starred in, but guys, he’s such a good actor. You all know him now because of Descendants of the Sun, but what made me say that he is an awesome actor, was the movie “a werewolf boy”. Honestly, he was the flower boy of the bunch, I always loved how he seemed so close with everyone. Thank you for being active Joong Ki and the guy who cannot draw well. Thank you for the time you spent with Running man and all of us until you parted ways.



Special thanks to Kwon Ryeol VJ, Dong wan FD and Lizzy. These guys were always such a laugh. I was planning to write more, but I’m started to tear up and my heart feels so heavy


Running Man family, you’ve worked hard. Thank you for all the laughter these 7 years. You will always be in our hearts.


DGM Hogwarts AU

Some people asked me why I put the main squad in the houses I put them in and asked me if I could explain. So here I am. It’s only my personal opinion of course and I respect it if people don’t agree with it. And I hope people won’t be dicks about my personal opinion or try to force theirs on me, since I got a few mean messages about this subject.

My personal opinion is that Lenalee is a Hufflepuff, Lavi is a Ravenclaw, Allen is a Gryffindor and Kanda is a Slytherin.

Since this is a very long post, my reasons are under the cut!

GOT7 in the Harry Potter Houses

Mark- Ravenclaw- Mark is really quiet, so we believe that he’d be really observant and clever. He’s stated that he enjoys alone time, and reading, which makes us believe that he likes learning new things. 

Originally posted by morethangiulia


JB- Slytherin- Jaebum is so incredibly confident, and he shows it. He’s also slightly aggressive and yells a lot, though when he loves someone, you know right away that he’ll do anything for them in a heartbeat. 

Originally posted by defwang

Jackson- Gryffindor- Jackson was really hard for us to place, he seems like he could fit in anywhere. He enjoys learning languages, so we thought about Ravenclaw, he’s very confident so Slytherin was in question, and overall Jackson is a sweet dork, so Hufflepuff would also be fitting. But at the end of the day, Jackson is ambitious and loud, and will take risks to get what he wants.

Junior- Ravenclaw- Jinyoung is ridiculously sassy and has a comeback for everything. Aside from that, he’s motherly and takes care of people. Also he looks good in the color blue like come on?????

Originally posted by jypnior


Youngjae- Hufflepuff- S u n s h i n e. Literally the sweetest boy ever we don’t even understand, so you best believe he’s a Hufflepuff. He’s not arrogant like Slytherin, brave like Gryffindor, or extremely intelligent like Ravenclaw. Youngjae is loyal and caring, and loves everyone. This boy deserves all the love in the world. 

Originally posted by swoonfinite


BamBam- Gryffindor- This boy was so hard for us to place too. Kunpimook seems like the kind of guy to do things to get attention, even though he’s terrified of everything (????). He’s just like Neville Longbottom, but more lit, u feel. And in all honesty, you better be ready to see him dabbing down the corridor, its fine. 

Originally posted by bambamsbabe


Yugyeom- Hufflepuff- He’s the sweetest little boy ever, such a shy baby. He’s the kind of person you want to take care of, and the kind of person to do anything for his friends. Yugyeom is just too kind hearted to be anything other than Hufflepuff.

Our favorite Mystic bitches with a Hufflepuff s/o?

W E L P. I’m about to go bananas on this ask because I’m a freaking HP nerd (I’m Gryffindor btw) and have spent a LOT of time thinking about this shit.

((THIS IS NOT SPOILER FREE BE WARNED))

Okay before I go into answering this let me first explain which houses our mystic bitches are in so you can understand where I’m coming from. I’ll break this down by individual houses first.

┊Hufflepuff┊

Yoosung+V

  “This house values hard work, dedication, fair play, patience, and loyalty. Hufflepuff’s are known for being just and true. “Do what is nice” is their motto.”

◆Yoosung—It’s quite obvious that Yoosung is in Hufflepuff. He may have been a slacker due to depression for a short amount of time, but he was dedicated after meeting you and was the fastest to get his PhD! He joins the men of monogamy to show how loyal he is to you. And of course, he’s a sweetheart and can’t imagine a person having malicious intent, which is why he is so gullible.

◆V—We don’t get to see enough of V, but from what we know I think it’s safe to assume he would be sorted into this house. He’s incredibly loyal to his friends and the people close to him. It’s very important to him that everyone is happy. Puts others before himself, even if it means he will be hurt, because its the nice thing to do.

┊Slytherin┊

Saeyoung+Jumin

“This is the house of the cunning, prideful, resourceful, ambitious, intelligent, and determined. Slytherin’s love to be in charge and crave leadership. “Do what is necessary” is the motto of this house. Slytherin is a fairly well-rounded house, similar to the other houses. They are loyal to those that are loyal to them just as Gryffindors are and are intelligent as Ravenclaws.”

◆Saeyoung—A lot of people would probably put him in Gryffindor, but I don’t think that’s where he belongs. It’s true that he is extremely loyal, but that doesn’t mean he belongs there. He’s also extremely intelligent as we all know. He’s very resourceful and cunning as well. He can think on his feet and works well under pressure. We know he’s prideful. He is really full of himself when it comes to his work, sometimes to a fault, because he believes he’s coded so well that no one could possibly hack him. Intelligent, cunning, cocky…this boy is a Slytherin.

◆Jumin—Also extremely intelligent. Remember when he went off on Zen about marketing strategies and importing/exporting? Literally wrecked him. He’s also very cunning. What business man isn’t? And he’s cocky about it as well. He prides himself on being able to make business deals with anyone and often sweet talks his way into them. Loves to be the one in charge. Needs to be the one in charge. Incredibly loyal to his friends (V. lolol) and does whatever is necessary to make things go the way he wants them to go, regardless of what others think.

┊Gryffindor┊

Zen+Saeran

“The house of the brave, loyal, courageous, adventurous, daring and chivalrous. Those who stand up for others are typically Gryffindors. Brave-hearted is the most well-known Gryffindor characteristic, and Gryffindors are also known for having a lot of nerve.”

◆Zen—Brave. Courageous. Hmmm? Like, when he was literally the only one to be like “idgaf tell me where the hell MC is she is in danger I’m not sitting on my ass I’m gunna go save her!” Chivalrous? This guy literally calls you a princess and has every opportunity to take you up on your offer of staying over but instead forces you to go home. Because it’s the chivalrous thing to do for a lady. Adventurous and daring? Oh. Like being in a FUCKING BIKER GANGG?! Plus he is so in love with himself, like all Gryffindors who think they’re gods gift to earth lmao.

◆Saeran—Some people might be like, “whaaa-?! He should be in Slytherin!” No. NO. Okay yeah, he did some bad things. But also he was, like, drugged. And also, say it with me folks, not all Slytherins are bad people. This kid had a rough life. He could have just shrunk into a little ball and stayed, as he put it, the “weak twin” and went on with his life. Instead, he chose to stand up and fight for what he wrongfully believed was right. That’s pretty brave. Obviously he is extremely loyal. I think it’s canon that he is chivalrous, and does care about women. In a chat with Jumin he says something like “all women are the same” and if you answer that you’re sad he feels that way you get a white heart. He has a lot of nerve and, unlike a Slytherin who is usually more tactful and cunning, acts on impulse and feeling. This is why I believe he is a Gryffindor.

┊Ravenclaw┊

Jaehee

“The house is known for their wisdom, intelligence, creativity, cleverness and knowledge. Those who value brains over brawn can be found here. Ravenclaws often tend to be quite quirky as well. “Do what is wise” is the motto they strive to follow.”

◆Jaehee—What a shocker. Baehee is a Ravenclaw. Wisdom and cleverness, that’s our girl. Who is always the voice of reason in the chat? The one giving sage mom advice? Yup. She’s also extremely intelligent and creative. Who else could pull together all of the random ass projects Jumin would throw at them. And we know our girl is quirky. She’s an active member of a fanclub and collects DVDs and posters of a guy in black leather like come on.


Alrighty, so I’m taking it that this ask is like an AU where they’re all in school at Hogwarts? Sorry if that’s not what you meant…Also I think this turned more into what they would be like in Hogwarts I’m so sorry lol

anonymous asked:

Im sure these kinda asks must get annoying but what kinda person personality-wise would our jungkookie go for? Ive had numerous astrology websites pin me and his meme ass as super compatible. That fact is intriguing but i dont trust those sites like i trust your insight <3 i need more completely useless maladaptive daydreaming fuel

Anon, it took me so long to get back to you, I’m so sorry! I wanted to write it without being a rush, you know? ‘Cause Jungkook is kinda complicated. lol So here we go:

First of all, it’s important to understand that this guy has many placements in his chart that are working perfectly, at their best capacity. That by itself already means two things: he’s obviously good at many things since he has an easier time than most controlling his mind and body and also that he’s very picky and demanding since he expects a lot of himself and others. That being said, Jungkook is also a perfeccionist when talking about relationships: he’ll analyze everything that is involved in it to be the absolute best at it. As if the world was holding a competition of the best boyfriend alive™. So while that’d be awesome for his partner, to be as spoiled as that person would be, it could also mean some exaggeration. ‘Cause Jungkook needs the person to be as into it as he is, constantly working as hard as he is, you know?

Top Ten Films of 2014

Last year, I made my first video top ten (which you can see here), and while that was fun, as it so happens I’m a bit too busy right now to go through all the trouble of making a video at the moment. So here we are, back to the old way of doing things.

On an interesting side note, I found an unintentional theme in my list this year. Many of my films are in some way about the creation of art, as well as the price paid to be a great artist. Also, many of these movies could be seen as “coming-of-age” films. Once again I find myself astonished at how many great films came out in a single year (and I haven even seen all of them yet). So as usual, you can find my long list of “honorable mentions” at the end. 

Like always, this is just my personal top ten films of the year. Even if we share the same tastes, I guarantee you that my list would be different than yours. It’s just too subjective.

So starting at number ten and counting down… here we go!





10. Mr. Turner

As far as pure craftsmanship goes, “Mr. Turner” is perhaps the most well made film of the year. Mick Leigh is a master, and every shot is purposeful and completely stunning. The film itself looks like an old beautiful painting. Timothy Spall sinks deep into his role as J.M.W. Turner, and it’s probably his best performance to date. The deliberate pacing and lack of traditional structure might turn away some viewers, but “Mr. Turner” is nevertheless a great work of art, and a portrait of a fascinating man.



9. Frank

I knew very little about this film before seeing it, and I think that’s a good thing. From the opening scene, I instantly fell in love with this darkly funny film. At it’s core, there’s some rather deep subject mater, and yet “Frank” cleverly offsets this with some truly hilarious moments that keep the film entertaining throughout. Domhnall Gleeson is outstanding here, but of course, the real star of the show is Michael Fassbender, who gives an incredibly expressive performance despite the fact that we can’t see his face. I enjoyed nearly every moment of this picture, and it’s definitely one that you need to see.



8. Ida

Some films just belong in the Critrion Collection. Ida is one such film. It’s haunting and artful and features the best black and white photography I’ve seen in years. The sharpness and contrast of every shot is remarkable. The narrative is beautifully simplistic. In fact, the minimalistic nature of the film as a whole is part of what makes it so special. “Ida” is sparse, gorgeous, and masterful. Certainly one of the best foreign films of the year.



7. Only Lovers Left Alive

Vampires are cool, but Tom Hiddleston and Tida Swinton bring it to a whole new level. These old lovers have seen it all, and while they still appreciate art, science, and philosophy, they’ve grown tired and indifferent while mankind continues to make the same mistakes.  Jim Jarmusch’s film is a special kind of vampire story, because it may be the first one to really capture just how lonely, dangerous, and exhausting being immortal really is (or would be).  "Only Lovers Left Alive" has a deliberate pacing that glides slowly along with it’s characters. Along the way, we learn how they live and what they’ve grown to appreciate, and it’s all quiet fascinating. It’s my opinion that “Only Lovers Left Alive” ranks as one of the very best vampire films ever made. 



6. The Grand Budapest Hotel

A Wes Anderson film can always put a smile on my face. His last few films have been some of his best, and “The Grand Budapest Hotel” is certainly no exception. This film is so beautifully stylized, and so hilariously funny, I find it hard to believe that there’s anyone who wouldn’t enjoy this film. The cast is fantastically entertaining (especially Ralph Fiennes), the colors are vibrant, the humor is clever, and the filmmaking is flawless.  When I saw “Moonrise Kingdom”, I said it might be Wes Anderson’s best film yet…. when I saw “The Grand Budapest Hotel”, I said the same thing.



5. The Duke of Burgundy

Captivating and visually arresting, Peter Strickland’s “The Duke of Burgundy” is one of the most compelling films I saw all year. It’s beautifully shot, colored, and textured with elegant pacing and precise direction - I really can’t say enough positive things about this film. It’s surreal and challenging while retaining a soft and gentle nuance of love and tenderness. “The Duke of Burgundy” certainly won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, but I found it extraordinary and deeply inspiring.



4. Boyhood

I know many cinephiles will probably place “Boyhood” as their number one film of the year, and I wouldn’t fault them for that. Richard Linklater’s “Boyhood” is one of the most innovative and uniquely profound films ever made. Shot over the course of 12 years, we literally watch Mason grow up before our eyes. It’s a remarkable experience unparalleled by any comparisons I could make. We owe it to Linklater for having the guts to push our medium forward in such a beautiful way. This will probably win Best Picture at the Oscars, and it’s easy to see why. 



3. Birdman: (or The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)

Simply one of my favorite cinematic experiences in a very long time. In the first scene, I made a mental note that we were in a long take, but to my wonder and astonishment, that long take never ended. There are, of course, cuts and interludes (this isn’t a “Russain Ark” situation) but the effect is very much that Alejandro Iñárritu’s film is one singular shot. It’s remarkable, but could be called nothing more than an impressive gimmick if the film itself wasn’t so strong. 

This is the best cast ensemble of the year, and the cinematography is gorgeous (made more impressive again by the long takes). But “Birdman” also has some interesting things to say about the creation of art, as well as the criticism that always accompanies it. It’s an intriguing film, and one with something to say. I loved every minute of it.



2. Vi är Bäst! 

Every year, there are films that just seem to come out of nowhere and surprise me. Before it was released, I knew nothing of “We Are the Best”, nor was I familiar with Lukas Moodysson’s previous work. However, this film was perhaps the most enjoyable film I saw all year.

If you know nothing of this film, it’s the director’s adaptation of his wife’s graphic novel “Never Goodnight” (by Coco Moodysson). It centers around three young teenage girls living in 1980s Stockholm who start a punk band - despite two of them not knowing how to play an instrument. While the band plays an important role in the film, some of the most interesting scenes are when the girls are simply hanging out. The performances from these three young ladies are perhaps the most natural I’ve ever witnessed from anyone their age. At times, it seems that they’re not even acting at all, as if the cameras just happened to be there to catch these authentic moments. These girls are so funny, enduring, and most importantly, real. This film understands what it really means to be a hardcore punk. And that is a rare thing. I really can’t say enough good things about “We are the Best”. You just need to see it.


And my number one film of the year is…



1. Whiplash

This is not the most ambitious film of 2014. It’s not a space epic. It wasn’t shot over twelve years. It doesn’t give the illusion of being one continuous shot. It’s not even by a famous director. Yet, “Whiplash” was the single most thrilling  piece of cinematic art I saw all year.  

“Whiplash” tells the story of a young ambitious drummer who dreams of being one of the great jazz musicians of our time. He soon finds himself under the mentorship of a cutthroat teacher who is willing to do whatever it takes to push his students to the limit. The film shows painful abuse and heartache, but then just when you think the film will find contentment in an obvious solution, it aggressively charges forward into the single most intense, passionate, raw, violent, and beautiful final scene of the year. A scene that made my heart race until it finally cut to black, and the credits rolled. Then, and only then, did I finally catch my breath. This film bleeds with a passion that’s visible in every aspect, from its photography, to its editing, to the stellar performances. Enough can’t be said about Miles Teller and J.K. Simmons. They both give 100% to their roles, and it’s both beautiful and heartbreaking to watch.

I found “Whiplash” to be painfully relatable at times… and I’m sure that contributed to my fondness for the film itself. Nevertheless, I think everyone should see this amazing work of art. Damien Chazelle has crafted a challanging look at what it truly means to be a young artist with high ambitions. The road to greatness is filled with suffering, pain, loss, frustration, blood, sweat, and tears… and it seems the filmmakers here understand the price that is paid. 



So there you have it - My top ten films of 2014. Please let me know what your favorite films were! Now, some of you may have noticed that a certain favorite director of mine not on this list…. so please see my honorable mentions below.



Honorable Mentions 

.

Inherent Vice - I know! I know! I can’t believe it either. P.T. Anderson is my favorite director, and I do love this film…. it just didn’t move me like his other work as done in the past. “Inherent Vice” is great. I just like 10 other films more.

Gone Girl - Yet another one of my favorite directors. David Fincher is to the point where he really doesn’t make bad films anymore. The craftsmanship is just too good.

Calvary - This is a touching and somewhat heartbreaking portrait of a priest genuinely trying to live a good life. A thankless job to be sure. It’s bleak but Brandon Glesson gives a wonderfully tender performance.  

The Babadook - Rich with metaphor, this is easily one of the best horror films in years. Love it so much, and you really need to see it.

Under the Skin - Who could forget this surreal work of art from Jonathan Glazer? Scarlett Johansson does wonderful work here.

Jeune & Jolie - “Young & Beautiful” was an underrated French film from François Ozon. I really loved it a lot, though I might be in the minority.

Snowpiercer - Joon-ho Bong is a crazy good director, and “Snowpiercer” is a thrilling sci-fi action movie far more worthy of your time than most summer blockbusters. 

Top Five - Chris Rock made an excellent film with a deep Woody Allen influence. I really hope he will continue this style into future projects. 

Foxcatcher - A remarkable film. Bennett Miller is on a roll. There’s really nothing to complain about with this film. See it.

The One I Love - A fantastic little gem from Charlie McDowell. Mark Duplass and Elisabeth Moss are great.

The Imitation Game - A very sharp screenplay, and a brilliant performance from Benedict Cumberbatch.

A Most Wanted Man - The last leading performance from my favorite actor. 

Guardians of the Galaxy - Finally, Marvel made their finest MCU film yet. It’s fun and fast and a really great watch. 

Unfortunately I did not get the chance to see “A Most Violent Year”, “Winter Sleep”, “Goodbye to Language 3D”, “Leviathan” and serval other foreign films. I’m sure they all could have made my list if I had seen them. 

Where Senility Ends

Summary: Logan cares for Charles in the silo. Did I already write this setting? Too bad, have another one. I don’t even know if it’s heartbreaking or just worn out anymore.

WARNING: a rather graphic quote from x-men is used, regarding Auschwitz. It’s marked with a (5), and is that entire paragraph. It can be skipped


Logan walked into the fallen silo and slammed the door closed, making sure Charles wouldn’t be startled by his sudden appearance. It had taken him several months to realize the professor wasn’t always home anymore, and the times when he wasn’t were coming more and more frequently. Especially as Logan found the necessary medicines harder and harder to come by. It wasn’t that Chuck was becoming senile. He would just lose himself in his powers more often.

It hadn’t been so bad when Magneto had been around to help draw out the younger man. Logan had always admired Erik for his ability to remind Charles of just who and where he was. But the first of the seizures had taken that option out of the equation rather soundly.

[Kingdom hearts fanfic] To Stand the Test of Time

This is for the @kh-worldsconnected collection! I’m partnered with @mischievousart whose amazing companion piece for this story is here!

AO3 mirror


Sora was always a tumbledown child.

He always had scratches up and down his arms, bruises on his knees and elbows. Cut lips and bloodied nose, always stumbling, tripping, going too fast for feet that were too unsteady on ground that was too uneven. He’d go sprawling across the floorboards of the kitchen, roll over the stones dotting the pathway, get a face-full of sand, covered from head to toe in grit and cuts.

Sora fell down all the time, all the time. But if his habit was falling, then his specialty was always getting back up. He’d fall, eyes blown wide in some strange mixture of surprise and wonder, as if for the moment before he hit the ground he thought he was flying, not falling. And then, once he’d hit the ground, he would immediately push himself up to his feet, mouth cracked open by a wide, gap-toothed smile. He dusted himself off with scraped palms and torn fingernails, bloody grin wide with victory. Triumphant because at the end of the day, he was still standing.

As his mother, you used to be terrified by his constant falls. By his tumbles and his bleeding knees. But you could never scold him in a way that made him slow. Could never admonish him enough to make him careful. Because Sora loved to run. Loved to jump. Loved to race down the paved streets with his laces loose and flying, oblivious or defiant of the risk of tripping. Loved to jump off the docks into the water, knees tucked up to his chest and air ringing with his joyful shouts. He was never worried about falling. He was not the type to cry from a tumble, from a scratch, from bloodied torn skin poking through holes in his clothing.

Sora was always a tumbledown child.

He is not a child anymore.

Fairy Tail Houses

Gryffindor House: Courage, Strength, and Passion

Natsu Dragneel: A very brave, and dedicated man, who always protects who he loves, and fits the qualities of a Gryffindor perfectly.

Lucy Heartfilia: Although her intelligence is on par of a Ravenclaw, her bravery and passion to choose her own path despite all that stood in her way deems her an honorary Gryffindor.

Cana Alberona: A confident, witty girl with a fierce heart, and not afraid to reject those unworthy to her, even including her own friends, while she still might love them like family.

Mirajane Strauss: Almost picked to belong in Hufflepuff, though the courage she owns to keep her dark side locked away for the good of others, and the willingness to unleash that side in dire moments, marks her as a respected Gryffindor.

Elfman Strauss: Strong and loyal man who proves his chivalry for the good of others, while also carrying a tender heart for those he loves. Obvious pick for Gryffindor.

Hufflepuff House: Patience, Loyalty, and Kindness

Wendy Marvel: Though she grows stronger by the day, her innocence and willingness to support those around her is still noteworthy, and deems her a classic Hufflepuff.

Lisanna Strauss: Though she gets little time to show her true colors, it is clear she is very kind and caring to those close to her, and her loyalty to those shows even when all seems dark.

Happy: Very funny and caring little fellow, whose honesty to his partners and harmlessness is noted for a true Hufflepuff.

Freed Justine: Like Lucy Heartfilia, his intelligence is on par with a Ravenclaw, though his fierce loyalty to his leader Laxus Dreyer and group is astounding, and marks him as a Hufflepuff.

Ravenclaw House: Intelligence, Creativity, and Strategy

Levy McGarden: Her astounding cleverness and willingness to learn is breathtaking, and very wisely substitutes for her weaknesses. All perfect traits for a Ravenclaw.

Gray Fullbuster: Although his strength and bravery reconciles well with Gryffindor’s, he has a very hidden skillset with strategic moves and techniques that proves his intelligence is well above average, though is very hard to decipher when comparing to his strength.

Makarov Dreyer: Holds unbelievable power and willpower, such as a Gryffindor, though the way that he thinks first and ahead and wisely marks him as an honorary Ravenclaw.

Mavis Vermillion: Wonderful type for a Ravenclaw, her strategy and cleverness is beyond all measures and easily fits into the house.

Slytherin House: Cunning, Ambitious, and Determination

Erza Scarlet: Has unimaginable power and the pure drive to reach the greatest of names. Her talent and unrestraint to wipe away anyone daring to hurt her friends proves her a classic Slytherin.

Juvia Lockster: Holds the rarest condition of being placed in Hufflepuff as well, though her unpredictable snap of passion to protect those being threatened, by all means necessary, deems her a very high Slytherin, despite her naturally calm nature.

Gajeel Redfox: Also has a classic rivalry between Slytherin and Gryffindor, but his raw talent and naturally cunning nature in his past stamps him as a Slytherin.

Laxus Dreyer: Similar to Gajeel Redfox, his cunning nature and manipulation skills to achieve greatness is very obvious, along with his fierce determination to destroy those in his way.

Carla: Her snobbishness and undoubted ways to think highly of herself deems her a natural Slytherin, although her loyalty and kindness towards those she comes close with almost marked her as a Hufflepuff.


These are the houses I personally think the main Fairy Tail characters might be in, which was very fun to do, and also has me thinking for a Harry Potter AU? Sounds interesting right? I hope you liked this, maybe this will even give you some motivation…I’ll be looking forward to it!

Jack Kelly: Slytherin

Okay, so, I’m prepared for this to be unpopular. When I sorted him into Slytherin on my main blog, it was probably my most unpopular Slytherin. So, I just want to remind you all that while many Slytherins are evil, so are many Ravenclaws and Gryffindors, and it’s in no way, shape, or form one of the house’s defining traits. Many good guys are Slytherins, and Jack is one of them. Let’s take a look:

Cunning:

having or showing skill in achieving one’s ends by deceit or evasion

We can knock this one out in the second song. He wastes no time in letting us know what he’s about.

If I hate the headline, I’ll make up a headline, and I’ll say anything I have to.

You also see it later when he’s showing Davey how it’s done.

“You just made that up!”
“I did not. I said he heard it right here, and he did.”

From the beginning, he’s practically screaming that he’s a Slytherin. You could argue that this doesn’t reflect his character, because he has to sell the papes just to stay alive, so of course he’s going to do what it takes, but he’s not just selling enough papes to stay alive- he’s selling more than anyone else, as demonstrated in the scene after Carrying the Banner:

Selling with Jack is the chance of a lifetime! You learn from him, you learn from the best.

In fact, though, the following lines also demonstrate how cunning he is, so let’s not stop there!

“If he’s the best, what does he need me for?”
“Cause you got a little brother and I don’t. See, younger sells more papes, and if we’re gonna be partners-”

Resourceful:

having the ability to find quick and clever ways to overcome difficulties

For this, we have to look no further than the scene before Something to Believe In. 

“Only one problem, we got no way to print this.”
“Come on, there has to be one press he doesn’t control.”
“…Oh no.”
“What?”
“I know where there’s a press no one would ever think we’d use.”

You have to admit, that one doesn’t take him long to come up with. Also, I mean, he is using Pulitzer’s own press against him. You can’t deny that it as a solution is both quick and clever. He’s a creative fellow. 

Ambition:

a strong desire to do or to achieve something, typically requiring determination and hard work

Okay, so, really all Jack seems to want is to go to Santa Fe, and then he doesn’t in the end, so I guess he really didn’t have his heart all that set on it- but I guess you could argue that the strike is ambitious. It certainly does require determination and hard work, at least. He does waver in it, but in the end he does come back to it. Like a lot of characters, he gets a little lost sometimes. but he finds his way.

Determination:

firmness of purpose; resoluteness

You know, I think one of the most determined lines I’ve ever heard in all of musicals is definitely one of Jack’s-

And the strike starts right damn now!

That guy knows what he’s about. As I said before, he does kind of give up on the strike, but the strike isn’t just about wages. He says the union is formed to watch each other’s back. In the moment where he’s giving up on the strike, it’s because they failed to do even that, and they didn’t just fail, they failed Crutchie. Crutchie is objectively one of the most important people in the world to him.

Jack displays qualities of all the houses. Except Ravenclaw, really. He’s got the lowest connection to that house. He is indeed brave bordering on reckless, and he’s loyal to a fault, so let me address those for a second.

We can rule out Gryffindor because of his decision to take the money and speak against the strike. Yes, he’s doing it because if he looks at it as a whole, it’s what’s right. But a Gryffindor probably wouldn’t- helpfully enough, we actually have an example of a Gryffindor put in the exact same situation who doesn’t take the money, and that is Bobby Strong in Urinetown. Yes, taking the money would be better, but it would still be doing something against his ideals, so he doesn’t. Jack is very much an end justifies the means kind of guy, which is usually not a Gryffindor task.

As for Hufflepuff, yes, he works hard. Yes, he is loyal to the boys. But I just don’t see him as really belonging in that house. He fits it, but he fits Slytherin more. Like Angelica, yes, one of his defining qualities is his love for one specific person, but other houses can love other people, too. 

Musicalssorted official stamp on Jack Kelly is that he is a Slytherin! We’re off tomorrow, but come on back over on Thursday for a Ravenclaw!

not-socoherent  asked:

jack sparrow

  • Captain, he says, again and again, with the practiced cocksure grin and just the faintest of threats, flickering around the edges of his voice. It is nearly second-nature at this point. It’s Captain.
  • His father named him ‘John’ after a crewsman he had loved, once, and long ago. Her mother had given him ‘Sparrow’ because there was so little else to give. (A certain softness to the mouth, the texture of his hair, and the laugh that had snared the heart of Captain Edward Teague—this was all his maternal inheritance.) He had chosen ‘Jack’ for himself, because of the way it fit in his mouth, the hard bite of it, how easy it was to shout during a storm. How sweetly it sounded, fitted between ‘Captain’ and ‘Sparrow’.
  • Once upon a time when Jack Sparrow was young and beautiful and in the employ of the East India Company, Cutler Beckett was also young and in the employ of the East India Company—if less beautiful and significantly more ambitious, desirous. Beckett liked to own things.
  • Jack thought it was love. (He never made that mistake again.)
  • Drowning in a justaucorps a size too large and a battered coat that he cuffed several times to keep it off his hands, he can pass as a man, instead of a beardless runaway. The trinkets help, beads in his hair and a length of cloth tied about his waist, bandolier and head wrap and kohl around his eyes—he is too much to look at, and so no one looks.
  • He sells his soul to Davy Jones for the ship of his dreaming, and gives all else to Calypso for the skill to sail her. Clever boy, Calypso croons, helping Jack out of his shirt. My witty Jack. (She tastes like the sea, and Jack quite washes the worship of it from his mouth. There’s not enough rum in the world to drown the ocean.)
  • He hadn’t ever trusted Barbossa. Not really. But he was crooked and cunning and Jack had liked the idea of him, that he was equal to the grizzled first mate, whose mind he could hear ticking over like some terrible and perverse mechanism.
  • (Jack Sparrow fucked Barbossa once, back on a smoggy night when the whores left before he’d had his fill, and it had been only the two of them, dreaming madly as the Pearl rocked beneath them)
  • His fatal flaw, he explained to the rum runners who saved him from that godforsaken island, was that he was never enough. Nothing was ever enough.
  • Captain, he says, again and again, with the cocksure grin that is wearing thin at the edges. It’s Captain.
  • Elizabeth Swan is dangerous. Jack knows this the moment he slices through the strange, drowning girl’s corset, the moment the girl chokes, and Jack can’t look away from the warm rise and fall of her breast, like the sea. Elizabeth Swan is a cursed gold piece given flesh and eyes dark as a starless night, and that voice, that canny little voice in the back of Jack’s head is whispering don’t touch don’t touch don’t touch–
  • (He might have had tried his hand at Will—he’s very pretty, with a sweet mouth and doe’s eyes, and the closest thing to a good man Jack’s met for some time. Will looks him as though still deciding if he is brilliant or mad, which is gratifying. But first and foremost, Will Turner is the thing Elizabeth Swann wants, and Jack respects a prior claim.)
  • …..mostly.
  • There was indeed that thing with sending him to Davy Jones as payment of Jack’s debt—which Jack feels very bad about! He does. Very guilty. Especially when he catches Lizzie looking at him slantwise and heated, when the compass keeps pointing in Jack’s direction and Jack has to pretend he doesn’t notice, doesn’t imagine—
  • Oh so very, very guilty.
  • One day, Elizabeth Swann says to him, her mouth near enough to present an immediate and terrible temptation. You won’t be able to resist.
  • (Jack’s not entirely sure why he still is.)
  • Elizabeth Swann is dangerous. Elizabeth Swann is a cursed gold piece given flesh and Jack knows this the moment her mouth opens under Jack’s, the moment she presses herself flush against him. That voice, that canny little voice in the back of Jack’s head is screaming don’t touch don’t touch don’t touch–
  • ……………Jack has never been particularly good at listening to that voice.


  • Pirate,
    he breathes.

I’m sure this has been thought of before, but since I’ve never seen a post for it, I’m making one. I know someone pointed out how Harry, Ron, and Hermione represent the other three houses, but has anyone thought about how the Marauders represent the four houses?

James is such a Gryffindor. Brave and rash. He’s the type that would go charging in, spells flying. Stupefy now, ask questions later. He’d risk anything to defend his friends and loved ones. It didn’t matter how dangerous the situation or how much trouble he could get into, he wouldn’t let those he cared about down. And let’s not forget he stood up to Lord Voldemort WITHOUT A WAND. If Voldemort had given him an opening, I’m sure James would have socked him right in the face. Maybe he did. Maybe it’s why Voldemort has no nose…

Then there’s Sirius, the Hufflepuff. Yes, Hufflepuff. Because you’ll never have a more loyal friend than Sirius Black. His animagus is a dog, even, an animal known for its loyalty. Sirius’ love and loyalty to his friends was whole-hearted and unwavering. He would risk anything for those he loved, even his own life. Despite being wanted by the Ministry of Magic with everything from Aurors to Death Eaters wanting a piece of him, he still insisted on escorting Harry to the train to support and protect him. He would’ve gone to Harry’s hearing, too, if Dumbledore had allowed it. And who can deny the loyalty of someone who sees disloyalty as something so abhorrent that it is punishable by death? Sirius broke out of Azkaban with the sole intention of killing Peter Pettigrew. He did not care at that point what happened to him after. Peter had betrayed them all, and for that Sirius would make him pay.

Then we’ll put Remus in Ravenclaw because we all know he was the brains behind the operation. He was one of the best DA teachers Hogwarts ever had. Not only had he clearly done his research and was knowledgable in many forms of magic, he had a real passion and skill for sharing that knowledge with others. He is knowledgable not only about facts but about people as well. He’s shown more than once to be a voice of reason, especially to a passionate and dramatic Sirius. But there’s also the fact that Ravenclaw House is known for accepting those who are different or normally rejected from society. I think there are many Ravenclaws who, rather than rejecting Remus for being a werewolf, would be fascinated by it. They might question the whole process, research possible cures and other associated spells and potions. Or they may debate the social justice aspect of it. I see heated common room debates and mock trials on werewolf rights. In any case, if any House would’ve welcome Werewolf McWerewolf Jr, it would’ve been Ravenclaw.

And now I’m afraid I’ll insult a lot of my Slytherin friends by making Peter their representative, but I cannot deny his cunning. Peter’s intentions were always self-preservation, which isn’t inherently a bad thing. I don’t know much about Peter’s childhood or home life, but he gives me the impression of someone who was constantly bullied or even abused. He’ll do anything to protect himself. Maybe when he was younger he was bullied, so when he came to Hogwarts he allied himself with those who would protect him. The bravest, the smartest, the most loyal. I believe that, at least for a time, Peter really was their friend. He really did care for them in at least some aspect. I see Peter as their eyes and ears, their sneaky spy. He would be their lookout, their guard, the first one to spot trouble and the best at coming up with a clever lie or excuse to avoid it. A rat was a perfect animagus for him. Small and quick, a good spy, a fantastic escape artist. But no matter how Peter might have felt towards the other Marauder’s before, self-preservation always won out, and his cunning mind went to whoever would provide him the best protection. When it was sell out the Potters or die, Peter chose the death of a child over his own. I do think he felt regret, but his own need to survive, his fear of death kept him going anyway. Maybe he was even more afraid of death after that. I’m sure he pictured his judgement in the afterlife, if not by some higher power, than by James and Lily, possibly the more frightening prospect.
I want to add again, I do not mean to say all Slytherins are like Peter. Not all would sell out their loved ones to save their own skins. But he is cunning, and maybe even a bit ambitious in the way he aligns himself with the highest power and looks for their favor and rewards. Though not shown as such, I think Peter was very intelligent, he was just also blinded by his fear. I sometimes can’t imagine how he ended up in Gryffindor. He must not have always been as fearful as he became. Or maybe once had the ability to conquer his fears. I almost pity him. Almost.

sortings for The Lizzie Bennet Diaries (a youtube adaption of the Austen classic)

Note: in the way we like to play this sorting game, “primaries” are WHY you do things and “secondaries” are HOW. See links for further detail. 

Lizzie Bennet values her sisters more than anything. She is not just confused but sometimes horrified when others don’t intuitively perform or understand that. The way Darcy eventually wins her over is by doing kindnesses and reparations for her sisters (without any clear aim to gain praise or recognition), and by letting Lizzie see him interact fondly with his own sister. 

Lizzie’s drive is based around her own aspirations and the people she loves; she’s a Slytherin Primary, with a loud Gryffindor Secondary. Most adaptions of Elizabeth Bennet seem to make her this Slytherin/Gryffindor – she is one in the original source material, and those themes of healthy selfishness, close personal dedication to her loved ones, and forthright manner have carried over.

As a Gryffindor secondary, Lizzie can’t keep thoughts to herself, and she can’t be anything but herself. Where Darcy stumbles into social interactions overburdened with scripts and plans, Lizzie barrels through them and often gets herself in trouble with the way she instinctively, honestly, and thoughtlessly reacts to what she encounters. She drives herself almost completely on intuition and assumption. It screws her up sometimes, but that same burning Gryffindor Secondary is what draws people in her wake like eager moths. 

Darcy is a Hufflepuff Primary, burnt by George Wickham and others. He’s defensive and suspicious of charisma, and he circles anxiously and sternly around the few people he holds in his good graces– Gigi, Bing Li, Fitz, sometimes Caroline, and eventually Lizzie.

The boy can’t improvise worth anything– neither the reactive Gryffindor or the adaptable Slytherin Secondary is for him. Darcy is practical rather than emotional (or would like to be). He builds thriving systems and approaches social situations with a stiff set of social scripts and rules. It’s a Ravenclaw Secondary’s system-building and prep where he excels. It’s his Hufflepuff Primary’s essential generosity and goodness which causes big hearts like Fitz and Bing to flock close, support him, and sing the taciturn kid’s praises. 

Lovely, giving, beautiful Jane is a Hufflepuff/Hufflepuff in a nest of Slytherins (Lydia, Lizzie, Caroline, and likely Ms. Bennet as well, though she’s so much a caricature in this, by design). Jane’s kindness is not so much a choice as a willingly held obligation; by right of their being a person, every other individual deserves her time and the benefit of her doubts. And Jane fulfills her Puff Primary obligations to all people with kindness, patience, tolerance, tea making and cookie baking– common skills of the traditional Puff secondary

Luckily, kind Bing, who looks at her like she’s made of sunshine, is also a Puff/Puff. Even his great failure, in listening to Caroline’s ploys and Darcy’s honest worries, originates there – he’s much to apt to take people at face value and not question their judgements or their accuracy. But once he gets his head out of his, well, um (with Darcy’s repenting help) Bing and Jane are very well matched. They’re likely to give too much to other people, but at least Jane, who gives too much, and Bing, who trusts too much, have a romantic partner who will repay them in kind and never take willing advantage. 

Lydia is a Slytherin/Slytherin, and a reactive one. Her actions are driven not by ideals but by who she thinks is currently the most loyal to her. The tumble down into her consuming and abusive relationship is fueled by her feeling spurned and betrayed by her family, all of whom she holds close. This is also why she shatters so hard when she’s betrayed at the end of the series– once again, she has been burned (this time so much more severely) by the people she chose to give her Slytherin loyalty to. Only the rekindled (or rediscovered) love from her family stops her from what may have been the beginning of a spiral toward petrification.

She uses performances almost constantly, and it’s a testament to her actress that we can tell that sometimes she believes her own performances, and other times she doesn’t. But in both cases, Lydia puts them on and carries them not because they are a buffer between her and the world but because they’re how she best likes to interact with it. This adaptability as a solid nature is her Slytherin Secondary, and it’s there for Lydia when she starts to spiral as much as it is when her world is filled with joy. 

Caroline Li is also a Slytherin/Slytherin – ambitious, possessive, and manipulative, she’s a classic example of the maligned Slytherin/Slytherin as a villain. 

Charlotte, who “leaves” Lizzie for Collins&Collins, who loves quietly and practically and well, who eyes Lizzie’s fiercely possessive Slytherin with a kind of wry, fond confusion, is an Idealist Primary– Ravenclaw or Gryffindor

From the way Charlotte deliberates over her choices and the way she makes choices she *thinks* are right, rather than *feels* are right, she’s likely a Ravenclaw Primary. Her instincts don’t tell her to take Mr. Collins offer, her practicality and her well-thought-out ambitions do (and it’s the right choice, go Charlotte). 

For secondary – the way Charlotte shows affection, or one of the ways, is to do service for her friends and family (this suggests Hufflepuff secondary). She edits Lizzie’s videos. She gives her little sister the internship opportunity and tries to make it effective and educational. She excels at Collins&Collins by being clever and prompt but I think her greatest successes come from a dedication to hard work, a willingness to ladder-climb and put in her time, and an ability to honestly and genuinely decide to like and value people like Mr. Collins. 

Charlotte’s deliberation and organization suggest Ravenclaw, but I think that’s just something she models, a tool set she’s found useful and developed. I think her actual secondary is Hufflepuff– hard work, service, tolerance, and an ability for decisive fondness that’s as useful as it is nice. 


tl;dr

Lydia, Lizzie, and Caroline are all Slytherin Primaries, with their greatest priorities laid on their personal worlds and the people they love. Lydia and Caroline rock the adaptive (and often manipulative) Slytherin Secondary, while Lizzie charges in and bowls the world over with her Gryffindor Secondary. 

Darcy and Charlotte, Lizzie’s most important non-family people, are switched, which is interesting: Darcy has the Hufflepuff Primary’s dutiful generosity with a side of its optional stuffiness, where Charlotte has the steady service and adaptable warmth of the Puff secondary. Charlotte, then, has the constructed and thought-out decision making of the Ravenclaw Primary where Darcy has its deliberate and effective system building as his secondary.   

Bing Li and Jane are a matched pair of Hufflepuff/Hufflepuffs, possibly too nice for this world and the nest of beautiful snakes that inhabit it. 

YUYUS AT HOGWARTS

yusuke: GRYFFINDOR AS HELL

this boy was ready to punch his way outta here five minutes ago. he’s got talent, he’s got a temper, and he’s already done with your bullshit. he’s already egged snape’s potions classroom. he may not always have the self-confidence he pretends to have, but he’s always certain he knows what the right thing to do is.

kuwabara: HUFFLEPUFF but could pass for GRYFFINDOR or possibly RAVENCLAW. absolutely fails as a slytherin.

he’s loyal, he’s hardworking, and he’s a sweetheart. he acts like a gangster, but he can’t even steal a few things from a convenience mart. kuwabara is what happens when hufflepuffs try to be toughs. his high value for courage and bravery, however, might tilt him toward gryffindor, and i could see an argument for sorting him ravenclaw (immediately recruited for quidditch, by the way).

kurama: SLYTHERIN but “convinces” the hat to sort him into hufflepuff or ravenclaw instead. could maybe last five minutes pretending to be a gryffindor?

the hat can whimper about him being a clever slytherin all it wants, kurama is sending a picture home to his mother with him in either hufflepuff yellow and black (plants, the earth element house, he can play nice) or ravenclaw blue and bronze (home of the quirky nerds).

hiei: GRYFFINDOR or SLYTHERIN except we all know hiei didn’t go to school, and anyways, hiei would traumatize whatever was left of that poor hat after kurama was through with it. he mostly just lurks outside kurama’s window.

so deep down this boy is a hotheaded gryffindor with a warrior honor code, but his life has also shaped him into someone ambitious, willing to do whatever it takes to achieve his goals - he’ll do literally anything to protect his sister.

botan: RAVENCLAW or maybe HUFFLEPUFF

ravenclaw is known as the studious nerd house, but let’s be real, it’s also the house of quirky kids, and most kids who love to learn are also those nerdy kids who want to know what’s in your diary. but she’s also got the typical sweet personality of a hufflepuff, so i could see that, too.

keiko: GRYFFINDOR

people argue her for ravenclaw because she’s a good student, but who was the best student in hp? hermione granger, gryffindor. because hermione was always Very Certain she knew what was right, who was wrong, and by the way, she’s here to tell you all about it. keiko has the self-assurance/self-righteousness of a gryffindor, as well as the strong arms to slap sense into people and punch her way through demons. or death eaters.

yukina: GRYFFINDOR or possibly SLYTHERIN (yeah, that’s right)

even more people argue that yukina is sweet and shy and a hufflepuff, and that has some weight to it. but she’s also got the courage and self-determination of a gryffindor - remember, this girl left her incredibly isolated society to go look for her brother with literally no clues to go on other than “fire demon”. she also silently withstood years of torture to the point that the toguro bros were called in, and she firmly believes that her society should be exterminated by her brother - both traits i would put in either the gryffindor or slytherin category.

shizuru: SLYTHERIN

shizuru doesn’t have ambition for herself, but once she decided kazuma was going to make something of himself, by god, he was going to make something of himself. she’ll put a cigarette out on your demon tongue, shizuru doesn’t give a fuck.

genkai: SLYTHERIN or maybe RAVENCLAW

does shit for herself and isn’t in it for your glory bullshit. willing to sacrifice for the goal, like when she told toguro he’d have to kill a friend to make yusuke get serious. could also be argued as ravenclaw, however, as someone who put learning and studying the spiritual arts above everything else in her life; also, is a huge gaming nerd.

atsuko: GRYFFINDOR or possibly HUFFLEPUFF

better supported in the manga, where atsuko has a much bigger presence and you can 100% see where yusuke gets his everything. atsuko’s always ready to charge in and deliver a fun asskicking, just for the hell of it, but she’s also willing to just mosey on by and distract the police, grab a beer on the way there. atsuko’s good for wherever the party is, really.

koenma: SLYTHERIN

look, it’s not easy keeping all the worlds in check and not wrecking the place, and sometimes you gotta do underhanded shit to keep the wheels creaking along. other times, you’re just thankful you have your escape jetpack. but if someone manages to 100% win your loyalty, you’ll lay down your life for them, which is what yusuke becomes for koenma. 

jorge: PET AND FAMILIAR

neither a cat, toad, nor owl, but koenma is an elite slytherin so he snuck george in anyways. now koenma’s the headmaster so who’s gonna tell him no? you??


honorable mentions:

toguro (younger): hufflepuff or possibly gryffindor

toguro (elder): nagini

sensui: gryffindor or possibly hufflepuff, but i’m not sorting all his personalities

mukuro: ravenclaw

yomi: gryffindor who later slytherin’d the fuck up, but still a gryffindor at heart

Through the Years

Draco Malfoy x Reader

Request: Hey! Your imagines are amazing! Can I please have one of Draco and I from 1st-7th year? I’m in slytherin and a pureblood, you can decide the rest! Xx 

A/N: Oh my god this ended up so long. I had no idea where I was going with this, but to be honest, I kind of like it? I hope you guys enjoy it as well and as always, feedback is always appreciated.

WARNINGS: MENTION OF INJURY, MINOR CURSING, MENTION OF BATTLE/WAR

Your name: submit What is this?

“Y/L/N, Y/N.” Professor McGonagall called, her stern eyes trailing over the crowd of other first years before they landed on you.

“Okay, relax. You’ll be fine.” You reassured yourself quietly, walking forward to the stool. With a deep breath, you jumped up onto the stool and McGonagall placed the hat on your head. The Sorting Hat was too large for your head and so it dipped in front of your eyes, obscuring your vision.

“Interesting… ambitious, I see. Pure-blood… but a good heart…” The Sorting Hat rumbled, “A natural leader, capable of achieving your goals… powerful and clever… Ravenclaw, perhaps? No. No, not Ravenclaw. I know… SLYTHERIN!”

The Slytherin table erupted into cheers, rivaling the boos of the Gryffindor table. You let out a sigh of relief, you knew a few students from the Slytherin table, so at least you would not entirely be alone.

You could suddenly see again as MGonagall removed the hat and you hopped off the stool, quickly moving to your house table, taking a seat next to a fair haired first year boy.

“Hi, I’m Draco Malfoy.” He held out his hand.

“Y/N.” You clasped his hand with a small smile.

Over the course of the first year, you hardly saw Draco at all, too busy trying to learn all the secrets of Hogwarts as well as busy settling into your new home. The times you did see Draco however, were in the Common Room or in the Great Hall. But he was always flanked by Crabbe and Goyle, who though stupid, intimidated you.

*********

The second year of Hogwarts was a mess. With the Chamber of Secrets opened, and the possibility of Salazar Slytherin’s heir roaming the castle, you took every precaution to not get involved.

You had the small suspicion that the heir was a certain blond Slytherin, with whom you shared your potions classes.

“Draco, are you the heir?” You asked bluntly.

Taken aback, Draco answered honestly, “I-No.”

You nodded, turning back to brewing your potion as you reverted to ignoring him, as usual for the rest of the year.

*********

Draco began to notice you in the third year. You were mid-transition of becoming a teenager and you were finally beginning to grow into your features.

However, Draco favoured mocking Potter over paying attention to girls and the only time he did speak to you, was when you laughed at the way he cried like a child when Buckbeak cut his arm as he whined to his group of followers about Hagrid at lunch.

“What’s so funny?” He hissed, clutching his arm to his stomach in pain.

“It’s honestly sad how pathetic you are.” You sneered, rolling your eyes.

“That monster attacked me.” He snapped.

“Buckbeak did not attack you. Hippogriffs are prideful creatures, you insulted it. You offended Buckbeak, what the hell did you think was going to happen?” You said, turning your attention from him and back to your book.

“My father will hear about this.” He sneered. 

You scoffed and raised an eyebrow, “You do realise my father has a higher status that yours, Draco. Your father doesn’t exactly terrify me.”

Draco huffed, and faked a groan as he clutched his arm once more, turning his head to Pansy who immediately began fussing over him. You rolled your eyes, turning your attention to the book once more.

*********

The fourth year, Potter was all the talk in the school. He was, after all, the only underage student who was able to enter himself in the Triwizard Tournament. You, however, tried to concentrate on your exams. Sure, the Triwizard Tournament was interesting and it allowed for some relief and entertainment, but you honestly had better things to worry about.

Then, of course, Draco wanted to be in the spotlight once again. So, he manufactured tons of ‘Potter Stinks’ badges, distributing them among all the houses, to your surprise.

“Hey, Y/N.” Draco approached you.

“What do you want, Draco?” You asked, looking up at him from your Defence Against the Dark Arts homework.

“Want a badge?”

“No, thank you.” You replied drily, dipping your quill into the inkpot.

“What is your problem?” He asked. You bit back a sigh as he sat down on the chair next to you, placing the box of badges on the table with a thud.

“My problem is that you’re stopping me from finishing my homework.”

“That’s not what I’m on about. You seem to hate me.”

“I don’t hate you.” You sighed, “I’m just not entirely fond of you.”

“You don’t even know me.”

“And you don’t even know me.” You retorted.

“Fine. Let’s fix that.”

“Are you asking me out on a date?”

“Yeah, so we break up for the holidays soon. How about we sort something out for then?”

You raised your eyebrow, and mulled it over silently.

“Sure.” You shrugged

*******

The fifth year you spent time getting to know Draco. You went on many dates before the beginning of school year. 

When Umbridge turned up, you thought it would be a bit more fun at Hogwarts, but then she began to suck the fun out of everything. You couldn’t spend time close to Draco because he was too busy with the Inquisitorial Squad and mocking Potter and Weasley. Also came the matter of Umbridge’s bans. 

They were stifling. You couldn’t do anything without Umbridge’s permission. And worst of all, Draco seemed to want to do anything to please her.

“Why are you so mad, we are finally getting to fix Hogwarts! Umbridge is the best thing that’s ever happened! Its about time Dumbledore was put in his place.” Draco argued.

“She’s taking over the school! We aren’t learning magic, how are we supposed to fight, or survive out there?” You replied, frustration seeping into your tone.

“She is doing the school a favour!” 

You rolled your eyes and let out a groan of frustration.

This disagreement continued for the rest of the year, with you and Draco becoming more distanced rather than closer as you had hoped. It was the end of the school year, a few weeks after you had heard about his father being imprisoned in Azkaban for his Death Eater crimes that you finally broke it off with him.

*********

At the beginning of the sixth year, on your way to Hogwarts on the train, you had been sitting near Draco and his friends. There had been no other seats and so you had reluctantly sat down near your ex.

You overheard him bragging about a mission. One that was given to him by Voldemort. Though of course, he never did say his name aloud, you knew that Draco had ended up taking his father’s place in Voldemort’s circle of Death Eaters. 

You didn’t feel anger, or even disappointment. In complete honesty, you felt sorry for him. Draco wasn’t an entirely bad guy, he had a good heart but he rarely ever showed it. This facade he had put up would soon come crumbling down, and when it did, it would not be pretty.

You and Draco barely saw each other this year, only passing awkward glances in the corridor or at lunch or dinner. Halfway through the year, you noticed how the mission given to him by Voldemort, whatever it was, had began to take it’s tole. Draco’s face seemed devoid of colour and the life in his eyes had disappeared.

You had been walking down the deserted corridor when you bumped into Draco on the seventh floor, the book you had been glancing over falling from your hands. 

“Shit.” You cursed. “Sorry.” You bent down to grab the book, glancing up and your eyes met pale blue ones that you were so familiar with.

“Draco.” You breathed, you heart pounding in your chest. It was only now that you noticed the bags under his eyes and the deathly tone to his skin. “Are you alright?” You asked, concern seeping into your tone.

He paused for a moment, his face confused and slightly startled before he managed to pull himself together. “Excuse me.” 

“Draco!” You said as he walked around you, turning to face him. Draco didn’t turn around, though his steps faltered slightly as he slowed down his pace. “Whatever it is, whatever You-Know-Who wants you to do, it can’t be worth it. You aren’t one of them Draco, you never have-”

“What would you know about who I am?” He hissed, turning at you his eyes blazing in anger, “What do you know about what I have to do?”

You didn’t reply, knowing that Draco was barely holding himself together. He blinked his eyes harshly, as if he was about to cry and his breathing was getting quicker. You gazed at him sadly, before striding forward and pulling him into a hug.

Draco froze in your arms, his muscles tensing under your touch. Then, all at once, he brought his arms around your waist and lowered his head into the crook of your neck, his chest heaving as sobs raked his chests. You placed a hand on his head, gently running your fingers through it.

“I can’t- I have to do it-” He choked out in between his sobs.

You heart clenched at the pain and loss of hope in his voice.

“My family depends on it.”

“Draco…” You paused, unsure where to start as you chose your words carefully, “Whatever it is he wants you to do… I’m not sure it’s worth you-” You sighed as you found yourself unable to find words to try to convey your feelings. “When I said you’re not like them, I meant you’re better than them. You don’t have to do anything you don’t want to.”

“I have no choice.” Draco pulled away, wiping at his eyes.

“You always have a choice.” You replied simply. You looked into his eyes, “Are you going to be alright?”

Draco met your eyes, holding your gaze before he broke it, nodding. You looked down at the floor, squeezing his hand once before you walked away.

The rest of the year wasn’t so bad. You and Draco no longer had that awkward tension and every so often he confided in you, though he never told you about his ‘mission’.

It was only when it was the end of the school year, and the Dark Mark hung above the school grounds, that you finally realised what his mission was.

*********

Your last year at Hogwarts was chaotic. Snape had taken over, there were no longer any houses, the Carrows performed Unforgivable Curses on the younger years, the Ministry had fallen and Voldemort was stronger than ever.

You couldn’t trust anyone in your own year and without a doubt, nobody in the other houses trusted you. You were a Slytherin after all, and nearly all the Slytherins were Death Eaters, or at least, their parents were.

You didn’t blame the other houses for not trusting you, were you in their places, you wouldn’t either. But it meant that you had to control what you said around your friends.

Draco and you didn’t talk much. You knew Draco had a hand in killing Dumbledore and for that, you weren’t sure where you stood with him. You knew that Dumbledore was a great wizard, a great man, and you were loyal to him once. You had admired Dumbledore, his ability for great magic, but to also stay humble and wise.

His death had taken a toll on the whole school, but despite everything, you tried to persevere through your classes, creating excuses on why you couldn’t perform dark magic on young children.

“They’re too easy of a target, Unforgivable Curses should be saved for the stronger ones.”

“He looks like he’s about to die. I won’t have a pathetic young child’s death on my hands.”

When the time came, you fought for Hogwarts. All houses and younger years were ushered out of the school through the passage to Hog’s Head Inn. All the Slytherins left, except you.

“I know you don’t trust me, and I don’t blame you.” You spoke before anyone could make a comment, “But this is my school too, and I’ll be damned if I don’t protect it.”

Fred Weasley, a previous student you had seen once or twice looked as if he was about to say something before McGonagal stopped him, “Alright Y/N, this is your choice.”

“It is, Professor. Thank you.” You nodded.

“If I find out you’ve betrayed us-”

“You’ll kill me?” You asked, half amused at the threat that Fred was giving you, “Not if my parents get to me first.”

Fred raised his eyebrows in surprise, stumped at your statement. “I-”

“But fuck them.” You replied, not even bothered that you were now swearing in front of a teacher, “I’ve spent enough of my life trying to please them.”

Potter let out a small laugh before nodding, “Alright.”

You fought valiantly through the Battle of Hogwarts, defending your school with your life. However, it didn’t mean you didn’t escape without bruises and injuries.

By the time the battle had finally finished, the school was in ruins. Rubble and debris was everywhere, and you were pretty sure you had broken your arm and damaged your ear drum from an explosion that knocked you off your feet.

You stumbled into the Great Hall, the first thing you noticing being Filch attempting to clean up some of the mess. You clutched you arm to your stomach, being careful not to jostle it too much until you got Madam Pomfrey to look at it.

You glanced around the Hall, not sure where to go or who to go to. Despite saving many people’s arses, you were pretty sure they still didn’t trust you entirely.

“Y/N!”

You turned towards the sound, and smiled slightly through the pain when you saw Potter approach you.

“Hey, Potter.” You nodded.

“Are you alright?” He asked.

“I’m fine, its just a few minor injuries, but I’ll survive.”

“Thank you.” He muttered, clapping your injured arm. You winced slightly as a pain shot up your arm, and gritted your teeth and smiled through the pain.

“Well, I didn’t kill Voldemort, but..” You grinned.

Harry laughed slightly, “Malfoy’s over there, you know.” He said, throwing his thumb behind his shoulder.

You followed his thumb and you saw Draco sitting with his mother, seeming entirely out of place.

“Thanks Potter.” You nodded, clapping him on the shoulder with your good arm as you walked past him.

“Y/N.” Draco stood up when he saw you. He crossed the rest of the distance as he pulled you into a hug.

“Draco.” You smiled, ignoring the stabbing pains your arm was sending through your body.

“I thought you were dead,” He pulled away, “when Potter said you were fighting.. I..”

“Well… I’m not dead.” You replied, laughing slightly. “Hi, Mrs Malfoy.” You looked past Draco and waved slightly at his mother with your good arm.

“It’s nice to see you again, YN.”

Narcissa Malfoy looked more out of place than her son, what with her dark clothes and stiff posture.

“I’m sorry.” Draco pulled your attention back to him, “For everything.”

You smiled sadly, “I’m not the one you need to be apologising to, Draco.” You reached up and placed a small kiss on his cheek before turning your back on him and going off to find some medical attention.

Yes, Hogwarts was broken. Yes, your relationship with Draco was odd, but it was going to get better. If your years at Hogwarts told you anything, it was that Hogwarts will always be there to welcome you home.

Invincible

Weiss is good at parties.

           She’s good at a lot of things, honestly. Good at knowing when to smile instead of speak her mind. Good at knowing when to curtsey instead of draw her blade. She is polite and poised and damn near perfect—no matter the circumstances.

           But even perfection needs a break once in a while, so she’s standing quietly in the corner—she carries the elegance, grace, and personality of an ice sculpture at these functions—hands folded regally at her waist, wondering what the consequences would be if she simply left.
