On Hogwarts Houses

Slytherin is fall evenings, the air crisp but not cold, the setting sun revealing autumn beauty before darkening to show a million billion stars in the indigo inky sky, when the air smells like cloves and cinnamon and smoke from the crackling bonfire. Slytherin is the faint trace of cigarette smoke curling from your lips. Slytherin is sushi, is apple pie with vanilla ice cream. Slytherin is a glass of golden scotch. Slytherin is finding comfort in jeans and a leather jacket, dying your hair and tattoos that are like artwork. Slytherin is pride in your heritage, in what it took to get you here. Slytherin is the warm blossom of accomplishment in your chest. Slytherin is tall boots and long scarves. Slytherin is the person you’d trust with anything and everything, the one you love above all else, the one you’d kill for. Slytherin is not being afraid of the dark, but remembering that night heals. Slytherin is musky forests and the steady soothing rainfall. Slytherin is sarcasm and wit. Slytherin is determination in the face of fear. Slytherin is talking your way out of situations to keep those you love safe. Slytherin is the love that shows itself quietly from day to day, with quiet brushes and unsaid favors, but that rears up in fury to defend if necessary.

And Slytherin is the dark side, the morally ambiguous, the race for whatever it is you desire, shoving others aside. Slytherin is locking yourself in a shadowed corner and curling up, because it’s too much it’s too much it’s too- and wiping the tears and standing anyway, because you can’t stop now, and you can’t show weakness.

Gryffindor is summer, cloudless blue skies and endless green fields. Gryffindor is adrenaline highs and truth or dare. Gryffindor is bright red lipstick and cologne that makes heads turn. Gryffindor is parties that go all night. Gryffindor is fireworks exploding in the sky. Gryffindor is standing up to anyone, friend, foe, or stranger, to tell them they’re wrong. Gryffindor is throwing your friend a beer and jumping on their lap to take a nap. Gryffindor is the love of horror games. Gryffindor is steak and burgers, Gryffindor is spicy curry. Gryffindor is taking the risk, making the leap, no matter the odds. Gryffindor is raising your hand in class. Gryffindor is passionate love, whether it be romantic, platonic, or otherwise, that sees no difference in a hand picked wildflower and a diamond necklace as long as it makes the recipient happy. Gryffindor is defending, even if it’s defending someone you hate against someone you love, because Gryffindor stands up for what is right.

And Gryffindor is recklessness, the uncontrollable emotion, the carelessness with laws and rules. Gryffindor is choosing the ‘morally correct’ option even if it means more are hurt. Gryffindor is solving things brashly, physically, and only making everything worse.

Ravenclaw is winter peace and blizzards. Ravenclaw is the beauty of white snow against evergreens and a baby blue sky. Ravenclaw is the sharpness and cutting edge of a cold breeze, the glint of a metal blade. Ravenclaw is the silence of a library, lost completely in a world of ink and screens and words. Ravenclaw is a glass of wine and an old friend. Ravenclaw is martial arts and street smarts, Ravenclaw is always asking why, Ravenclaw is pages filled with writing and doodles and diagrams. Ravenclaw is telling dirty jokes in code so no one can tell why you’re laughing so hard you can’t breathe and the teacher can’t read the notes you were passing in class. Ravenclaw is failing a class because you couldn’t be bothered to read or do homework, it was too boring and you had other things. Ravenclaw is challenging the status quo and 'there’s always another option’. Ravenclaw is citrus and a stash of junk food that you always seem to eat right away. Ravenclaw is learning a new language because you want to. Ravenclaw is an innocent face that can hide the dirtiest mind. Ravenclaw is a pile of books that you’ll read - you will, you promise - one day. Ravenclaw is looking up and… hell, when did it get to be three thirty AM, you have classes in five hours, you… another half hour won’t hurt. Ravenclaw is love that happens slowly, like creeping ivy, till one day you wake up and realize it’s ensnared you tightly and you wouldn’t have it any other way.

And Ravenclaw is addiction, to coffee, to drugs, anything to get that clarity and that swooping feeling. Ravenclaw is coldness, is locking away resentment to fester, is 'revenge is a dish best served cold’. Ravenclaw is shutting up and never asking for help, because you’re smart enough, capable enough to handle it. Because you have to.

Hufflepuff is tea and sweaters and punching someone in the face because they need to shut up, calm down, or get the sense knocked into them. Or just because the punch was really satisfying. Hufflepuff is spring, Hufflepuff is winter melting away and basking in the sunlight. Hufflepuff is singing loudly to Journey and Queen. Hufflepuff is having the messiest rooms and yet knowing exactly where to find everything. Hufflepuff is 'there’s no such thing as too much chocolate’. Hufflepuff is one too many glasses of champagne so the world feels like sunshine. Hufflepuff is honestly not giving a damn what anyone else thinks. Hufflepuff is 'you’re never too old for…“ Hufflepuff is beating the crap out of people who destroy what a Hufflepuff believes in. Hufflepuff is prank wars that spiral out of control. Hufflepuff is getting shit done while everyone else argues. Hufflepuff is refusing to fit into the mold, which results in hufflepunks as well as Hufflepuffs in every dormitory because they have friends in every house and no one minds a 'puff sleeping over now and then. Hufflepuff is honey badger don’t care and angry momma bear. Hufflepuff is staying up till three am to talk someone out of depression, out of suicide, out of something stupid, convincing them how amazing and how loved they are. Hufflepuff is enduring scorn. Hufflepuff is a bumblebee hat on a Slytherin’s head because, despite whatever your mascot may be, YOU are a human and humans have ears and just wear the damned hat you asshole; a plate of supper next to a Ravenclaw and if you don’t eat it I will shove it down your throat with my own claws; a tightly wrapped bandage around a Gryffindor’s sprained arm and a surprisingly painful punch to the other shoulder because you NEED to stop nearly dying, thank you. Hufflepuff is loyalty, is true friendship, not the plastic My Little Pony stuff but the true friendship. Hufflepuff is the first ones to get Netflix running at Hogwarts, despite magical interference.

And Hufflepuff is loneliness, is the intense desire for friendship. Hufflepuff is having to deal with derision and scorn. Hufflepuff is the sting of betrayal and abandonment that cuts so much more deeply then with others. Hufflepuff is loyalty placed in the wrong ideal, Hufflepuff is loving the wrong person. Hufflepuff is drowning in emotions that bring panic attacks.


Slytherins are NOT evil.
Gryffindors are NOT assholes.
Ravenclaws are NOT heartless.
Hufflepuffs are NOT weak.

Thank you and have a nice day.

Dear Remus' Journal,

Sirius here once again. It’s been a long time asn’t it? Last time I wrote in here, Teddy wasn’t even home yet. I’m curently sitting in bed still wearing my pyjamas. You’re next to me my love. You’re sleeping peacefully with our son in your arms. Merlin I could watch you two all day long. After the full moon, you passed out. Probably from the pain and the lack of sleep. I healed you in the forest. You weren’t as hurt as last time so I got to do it all in the next minutes after your transformation. My healing powers are getting stronger. I wrapped your bare body into a blanket and took you in my arms, laying you on the backseat of the car. I sat next to you, brushing my hand in your messy and sweaty curls. “Wake up my love.” I whispered in your ear, leaving light kisses on your cheeks. After a few minutes you woke up, still feeling a but dizzy.

“Is it over?” You asked, your bottom lip shaking.

“Yes my love, it’s over.. We’re going home.” I said, letting you rest as I sat in the driver’s seat, making our way home.

I carried you to bed, making sure not to hurt you. Our movements woke Teddy up and when you saw him, you couldn’t hold back the tears. I picked him up and layed him beside you. He was so happy to see you.

“Dadda..” he said, falling asleep in your arms.

“I’m here Teddy. Dadda’s home.” You smiled through the pain.

“Have I missed a spot?” I asked, wondering if there was still a cut making you suffer.

“No.. But my muscles are killing me.” You said.

“I wish I could help with those..” i looked down.

“Pads you’ve already done so much..” you said, your voice ressuring me.

“Is there something else I can do?” I asked.

“Lay down and cuddle us.” You smiled.

“Okay..” I smiled too, laying down in the soft sheets.

I hugged your back and tangled my legs with yours. I didn’t get to be the big spoon quite often! You were holding Teddy, who was already asleep, in your arms.

“Thank you Sirius.” You whispered.

“No need to thank me my love. I love you.” I whispered back.

“I love you to Sirius, so much..”

May 1st 1978

anonymous asked:

hiya! I'm very new to the fandom (I just watched the anime this week) and I think it's definitely worth my time to read the manga, especially since i know that it is is very different from the anime. But I want to know - how many new ciel and sebastian interactions will I discover when I read it? please tell me there will be a lot. I crave more of this ship.

Hey there , sry for the late answer and welcome to the fandom.Indeed the manga is very different from the anime , and i personally prefer manga Sebastian than anime Sebastian . He looks more vivid and sexy

Yanna sensei’s art looks more alive, jawline more defined, that sexy smirk more aggravated   .As for the plot and story line , it is more detailed .The anime is just 30 % of what’s really happening in the manga .So I highly recommend you read the manga .As for SebaCiel , the original story describes how their bond grew stronger .They started from the bottom together . Sebastian learning how to become a skilled butler and Ciel learning how to be a proper heir and a nobleman .So they’re like familly , and i don’t think Ciel could grow any bigger with anyone else beside him .Sebastian did not appreciate Ciel at first he thought he ended up serving a spoiled child.

But as soon as the story developed , that image soon changed and his feelings for him turned into pure admiration .He even compared him to cats, Sebastian’s fav creatures

Sebby thinks Ciel’s sleepy face is as cute and as soft as kitty paws .he even attempts to touch /poke or squeeze as stated in the panel. So it is clear that Sebastian admires Ciel as much as he admires kittens which is a great deal since we all know how much of a cat nerd sebs is.Then comes the famous corset scene ;)

so much yaoiness XD 

Also the way they look / stare at each other , challenge , tease each other ahhh it’s so much for me to handle.

Flirting nee ;) 

and so many other moments , like sebastian’s face when ciel is hurt

Ciel being jealous when Sebastian held another young lady , sieglind

Ciel flirting with professor Michaelis XD

Yeah this how student x pupil porns start ;)

And lately this scene really got me , like Sebastian pinning Ciel down and taking off all his clothes just to check if there’s blood , that sounds fishy 

Did i mention that Seb took his own clothes and those of Ciel and they swam together  with him holding Ciel next to his naked body 

hey don’t get them wrong , he was just trying to heal him from the forest curse ;)

and sooo much more , so just enjoy reading the manga you won’t regret it :D

Day Five: If you use herbs in your spells/etc., list three that are safe, and three that are not. Name their correspondences as well.

*I won’t be listing what some may consider to be “traditional” correspondences, as I do everything very much based on my own interests and what works for me. Therefore, the correspondences will be listed based on what I find relates to each herb in my own craft.

Safe Herbs

Mischief in the Wood Realm

Summary:You, the reader, a banished royal elf from the north, resides in Thranduil’s Kingdom on the promise she can help heal the dead forest. On her free days, she seems most persistent on disrupting Thranduil’s royal duties.
Pairings: Thranduil x Reader
Rating: Teen for mild suggestive themes and angst(I guess).
Reference: Y/N = Your Name/Character’s Name Y/C = Your Character’s Hair Color

*I do not own the character Thranduil or the world the characters reside in. They belong to Tolkien*

  Earning Thranduil’s trust, you’ve been given free range of the castle in the mountains. You’ve used your magic to heal the Wood Realm, bit by bit but with few companions, you’ve grown incredibly bored on your days away from the forest and have the strangest urge to pester the dutiful king in your free time. After befriending Kysren, a Silvan in Thranduil’s guard, you spend your free time dressing up as a guard and rushing into the throne room with news most urgent. Today that ‘urgent’ news was about the strange Lake-town woman who insists that Smaug has returned in the form of bread, as she stands outside a bakery, preaching to the humans walking past.

A sealed hole in the earth, and the end of a wreck in my mind.

They came to start pumping an old oil well in my woods awhile back, and in the process, ripped, tore and destroyed the forest surrounding it. They made 3 roads (why, i’ll never know). Cut power line right-of-ways. Cleared out a massive plot around the well.

It was probably one of the first times I actually felt the need to physically protect the forest. I was enraged… more so than I should have been I suppose.  But none the less, they were ruthless, and destroyed everything in their path. They didn’t care one bit that they were ripping apart someone else’s land. I wanted them gone.

I planned to go talk to them. Because at this point, we really didn’t know much of what was going on, and I was going to find out. I suited up in a quite extreme kind of way. All black. Machete. Knife strapped to each leg. Knifes on belt. Two swords crossed my back. I was ready. For what? I don’t know… but I was ready for it. heh

I snuck quietly to where they were “working”. I can be pretty stealthy when I want to be. Barefoot, being careful to not snap a twig or even crunch a leaf. I crouched in the bushes beside them for about an hour, completely unnoticed. I was actually pretty impressed with myself lol. I stayed low, watching, listening, observing their every move. Eventually, I made my appearance. I crept right up behind one man, “Whats goin’ on?” I asked in a creepish voice. His eyes bugged as he turned toward me and stepped back a few paces, “UHH UHHH…. you wouldn’t kill nobody would you?” he was quite startled lol. “If I had to.” I quickly replied, dead eyed… then continued to ask whattt exactly they were doing to my forest. They told me they were “just doing their job”, and then offered me a beer. No thanks. 

I walked all through the site, nit picking, making sure nothing was spilled, and that everything was in order. Things were NOT in order. They had made a mess, several of them. Puddles of oil, piles and piles of trees left to waste away, even bulldozed and dammed up the creek. My heart raced and my eyes got wilder and wilder as I discovered what they had done to my forest. Oh, the rage. I can’t even imagine what those men thought with me walking around their site, dressed as I was, with obvious intentions to pick apart their operation. I’m sure they were actually scared of me, which is pretty funny  haha.

Despite the situation, I held it together. I asked who was in charge, and they told me he was coming there soon, so I waited. Continuing to watch, inspect, and make them very uncomfortable. Eventually “boss man” came, and he was picture perfect big oil man, sitting high in his expensive truck, thinking he’s really a big shot. He was, to say the least, surprised to see a chick armed with swords on “his” site. Right off the bat he was a jerk… like beyond jerk. I was actually being very very nice, considering what they had done to my beautiful land. I asked if there was any type of inspection that would be done, say, the EPA? As soon as the words “epa” came out of my mouth, the deal was sealed, we were enemies.

He proceeded to tell me to leave (even though I was still being very nice), even threatened to have me “removed” (from my own land). At this point, I decided it was not time to be nice anymore. I told him there was no way I was I leaving. I also told him there was no excuse for the damage he and his workers had done to our property. The conversation continued to heat from there, and eventually he told me I “should go live in a tribe in the woods.” At least he had one thing right lol.

I had fire in my veins. I can’t even describe how angry I was. He completely disrespected me, and the environment. 

From there on out, I made their job very unpleasant. I came every day, watching, inspecting, creeping in the bushes. They never knew when I was coming, or when I would pop out of the dense summer growth. Even though I was absolutely disgusted by what they were doing, I did find it very entertaining to hassle them. They were constantly on edge. It was pretty interesting playing the role of a ninja EPA agent. lol!

My swords were for show (unless something insane happened) I had no real intentions of using them. I’m a very peaceful person. I simply wanted to put a little fear in them. Let them know they are being watched, by someone who doesn’t mess around (; But, I have to admit, I was very much secretly wishing the forest itself would turn against them and destroy their operation. I thought of many things during the hours I sat and watched.

After all was said and done, there was no oil left in the well, dry. They got nothing. NOTHING. They did it all for nothing. They came and sealed the well off for good, poured full of concrete. Never to be drilled or pumped ever again. 

They put an anger in me I’d never felt before. A readiness to defend what was mine… to stand for the forest, and for the good of living things. I’m just glad it’s all over. They left quite a scar on the land, and forest.  But time heals all… and nature is relentless. The forest will heal… just as my heart. 

Trying to get back into writing with another short story! This takes place after a younger Y’shenn had already finished his study of pugilism at the Pugilists’ Guild! He decided to go on a journey to see what the other guilds had to offer! His time at the Conjurers’ Guild was short-lived. I took the liberty of using some dialogue gathered from the Conjurer class quests, for the sake of using proper lore, haha. You can see some of my other Y’shenn stories here too! Thanks for reading!!!
