his motives tho

If you ever feel useless, just remember that Kirk Hammett has been doing back vocals for the past 36 years. Do you know what his singing voice sounds like? Neither do I. No one does.

Hmmmm I still think Percy is a Gryffindor though? (not to compare him to Harry Potter) but Voldemort and Dumbledore both say that Harrys fatal flaw is his loyalty to his friends and family as well and that he would do anything to save them and protect them, but that doesn't make him a Hufflepuff??

I can see an argument for why Percy would be Gryffindor, but personally I don’t agree with it.

I think a pivotal thing in HP is the subtle hinting that your house is more of a choice than a designation. If you look at it, each of the main trio represents one of the three houses outside of Gryffindor. 

Hermione: Ravenclaw

Harry: Slytherin

Ron: Hufflepuff

But they all still ended up in Gryffindor, due to their choice. For instance, we actually see Harry ask not to be in Slytherin, and though the sorting hat isn’t entirely on board, he puts Harry in Gryffindor.

Ron is a total Hufflepuff, but his entire family was in Gryffindor, so of course that’s where he’d want to be put.

Hermione is arguably the brightest witch of her age, she values school and learning about as much as a person can, but she wasn’t in Ravenclaw, because I think at her core she valued bravery over knowledge.

But Percy? Percy would have no sway to one house or the other, he wouldn’t be persuaded by his friends or family in Gryffindor. He doesn’t have people badmouthing Slytherin for him to turn his cheek to it. And I honestly do not think Percy values bravery or knowledge over loyalty.

Now, I know you said you didn’t want to compare Harry and Percy, but you kind of did and I’m going to lmao.

Harry was definitely forced into the war and dangerous goings-on of Hogwarts, but he also took things into his own hands quite a bit, even when adults explicitly told him not to.

“No fo sure Snape is tryna steal the stone, trust me we gotta stop him”

“Lockhart is a pissbaby WE have to save Ginny”

“No guys Sirius is definitely in trouble we have to go help him” 

Etc, etc.

Now Percy on the other hand? He was kind of just thrown into the mix of things without really a say in any of it. I mean, he was kind of trapped with the whole quest and CHB thing because his mom was kidnapped and there was no way in hell he was just going to let her stay gone.

And most of Percy’s actions are motivated by the fact that he HAS TO or by the need to help and protect his friends, family, and his own ass. 

I mean, Apollo comes up to Percy and is like “yo dude I’m kinda fucked wanna help me out?”

And Percy’s like No????

And yes, Percy helps him but that was more of a reluctant obligation thing (also, yeah, not a good idea to turn down an eventual god who will probably hold a grudge because he has the personality of a thirteen year old)

In conclusion, most of Percy’s acts are indeed brave, but they’re not motivated by heroism or the need to help everyone, they’re motivated by him being forced to, or to help his friends and family. And that’s basically a big ol’ flashing Loyalty sign.

Anyway, that’s just my opinion, you can headcanon Percy as Gryffindor if you want  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

my fave thing about this pic is that joshua’s like “fighting!!” as in the good kind of fighting like y0u cAN DO IT!! but minghao in the back looks like hes ready to fight a living soul and chan’s like “savage minghao is showing abort mission AbORT”

why does nobody ever examine sam tho tbqh esp his recent choices. this is a well balanced, emotionally intelligent guy who got out of the life, who has psychological training, who knows unhealthiness and codepedency when he sees it, and here he is w steve now??? you guys are sleeping on the best questions of 2016: why is sam helping steve really? is that Best Pals or smth more? what’s it like for sam when he has to sit there and watch sgr lay in a hospital bed & defend the man who put him there? what does sam think and what are his motivations here tho because i KNOW he knows better than to think he can save somebody & i still cant help but wonder if hes trying to save steve

The fact that Jungkook looks at Jimin and does that suggestive eyebrow raise lmao.

Haha IKR!!! What’s with the eyebrow raise LMAO!!! That lil piece of shit always tease his poor hyung!!! ( in a loving manner of course)

I have no idea what was his overall motive tho, like it was so random lmao! He was like, “I need to get into one frame with Jimin Hyung and tease him just cause!”

OR

Maybe he just needed that addictive Jimin smile so bad. ( Cause Jimin hyung’s his sunshine *wiggles eyebrows*) 

One wrong move from Jimin and they could end up k.i.s.s.i.n.g (THEIR FACES WERE TOO CLOSE ISTG!)

AND THIS!

The part that got me squealing like crazy was when he smirked/smiled slightly when he got up. Why the hell did he do that??!!!! 

My point is, This overall scene was so unnecessary and was so random lol. I just can’t with these two. Boys, let me live!
