anonymous asked:

100% agree on your analysis of Jimin as a Slytherin!!! I know a lot of people (including myself) are shocked Namjoon put himself in Griffindoor over Ravenclaw though. I'm dying to hear your thoughts on this!!

HELLO and thank you! I’m glad you agree! And if anyone is curious here is a link to my thoughts on why jimin is the perfect slytherin. EDIT: And here is why Jungkook is a Ravenclaw!

//cracks knuckles MY TIME HAS COME

So… Namjoon. I, like you and a ton of other people, was really confused about him being in Gryffindor. But, the more I thought about it, the more I really came to not only accept it, but believe that he is a Gryffindor through and through. And please be advised this is going to devolve in to me gawking over how great of a human being Namjoon is, so if you don’t want to read about that please close your browser and think about why you don’t agree that he’s better than everyone else. okay?

okay.

Namjoon is a Gryffindor to the core, not a Ravenclaw

First of all, Namjoon supposedly sorted everyone else, but I have a small sneaking suspicion that he may not have sorted himself. We know he’s a fan of the movies at least, and he’s fluent in English, so if he’s a fan and he has access to sorting quizzes on Pottermore and other sites, is it so hard to believe that he hasn’t at least tried a few? Seriously, even the most casual of fans have tried getting sorted. It’s not that crazy of a thought. So… What if they put him in Gryffindor over Ravenclaw?

(I mean, when asked to do a British accent the first thing that he quotes was “Shut up Malfoy!”. If that ain’t the most Gryffindor thing…)

Also, Namjoon is a really humble guy. If he DID sort himself, I feel like he’d be the type of person who would shy away from saying “I’m smart, so I should be in Ravenclaw”. He’s always been pretty modest about his intelligence. And just because he is, doesn’t mean we should be. Seriously, Namjoon can be a goof but if you’re ever in doubt about how crazy smart he is, please watch this.

He has no problems recognizing the intelligence of others though – he raves about Jungkook being good at everything he does, and even gave him the nickname “Golden Maknae”,  so is it such a wonder he put Jungkook in Ravenclaw? (It should be noted that Ravenclaws also have a reputation for being eccentric and quirky. Prime example, Luna. If that isn’t a perfect descriptor for Jungkook idk what is)

So let’s look at what the common traits of Gryffindor are, shall we?

Such character traits of students sorted into Gryffindor are courage, chivalry, and determination. They can also be short-tempered. [x]

Okay so, courage. I could go on and on about how brave Namjoon is but like… we’ll be here all day. So let me keep this short and point you in the direction of one thing in particular that he has done. THIS TWEET.

It’s Rap Monster. A song about homosexuality. I heard this song before but I didn’t know the lyrics, now I know them and I like the song twice as much. I recommend Macklemore & Ryan Lewis - Same Love. http://hiphople.com/subtitle/619392

I have a lot of feelings about this tweet. And a lot of theories about WHY he tweeted that too – but no one wants to hear about those so that’s for another life post.

First – speaking out in support of homosexuality in Korea is a pretty huge deal, because homosexuality isn’t a really accepted lifestyle there. (It isn’t really accepted anywhere, truly, but you all know that.)

Here’s a pretty recent list on idols who support LGBT communities.  It’s a pretty god damn short list. I use the term ‘support’ loosely bc this article seems to equate ‘having gay friends’ as being a supportive ally. But Namjoon stands out pretty hard in this list because he doesn’t just say ‘i love my gay friends!’, he outright spoke out in support of homosexuality.

But Kiki, you say… Namjoon is hugely popular. He’s one of the biggest stars in Kpop. He could say whatever he wants now, right?

Well yeah, he can. But here’s the kicker! Look at the timestamp on that tweet. He tweeted that before they debuted

Namjoon was months away from launching his dream career, something he’d worked his entire life for. He was from a pretty small unknown company whose only claim to fame before that was that group that had two members blackmail an actor over something or another. He couldn’t afford bad press, and yet here comes Kim fucking Namjoon with his balls of steel willing to throw that all down the drain because god dammit he was going to tell the entire world about how much he supported the LGBT community and anyone who wanted to stand in his way of doing so could eat a fuckin dick. He could have kept his heckin mouth shut but he didn’t??? 

????

moving on.

Chivalry.

Chivalry is defined as:

1.the combination of qualities expected of an ideal knight, esp courage,honour, justice, and a readiness to help the weak

2.courteous behaviour, esp towards women

Courage, honor, justice, what I just talked about describes those things pretty perfectly.

I’d like to talk about honor for a sec though. Let’s look at a pretty famous Gryffindor – Ron. Ron was one of a shitload of children in his family. He outwardly always grumbled about not getting attention or whatever, but as a person, he was all about family. He put his family first, he didn’t gripe too hard about hand-me-downs to his parents because he knew they were trying their best, and he defends people he cares about.

There’s that famous scene (that I’m still salty they changed in the movies) where Hermione wants to answer a question and Snape gets mad at her for it. And he defends her – why ask the question if you’re not looking for an answer?

Ron always, always put his family first. So does Namjoon.

Take this gifset for example. The whole set is great and shows how much he really takes care of his members, his family, but this is what he does when he’s around them and also in front of people. Not all that surprsiing.

But please, please please please pay attention to the first gif. For people who don’t know the context, he was asked if he’d choose going solo or bangtan. He DID NOT KNOW HE WAS BEING FILMED. He could have shown his true colors and said that he preferred a solo career and all the glory, but even when given the chance to be completely open, his heart was still with Bangtan.

Another great example of Namjoon being completely selfless. Everyone here is praising themselves (and they have a right too, don’t get me wrong, you’re all great four for all of you) but when it gets to him, Namjoon says “We’ve always been pretty good.” We. Not I, not me, we. Everyone else is giving themselves some much deserved praise, but Namjoon is stuck on we are good, we’ve always been good.

Also don’t forget how important blood-related family is to him too.

And don’t you dare forget how important you, his extended family, is to him either.


Readiness to help the weak. I mean this goes without saying right?

And if you want to take courteous behaviour, esp towards women, literally, look at their glass-ceiling line in Not Today, that they said they used specifically knowing what it meant. and look who is credited for writing the lyrics! What’s that? It’s Namjoon? Wow, I did not see that one coming.

Speaking of lyrics – talk about having courage. Look at the lyrics he wrote for Reflection and Always.

They can also be short-tempered.

Okay so this doesn’t really apply to Namjoon. But I wanted to include it in there because it fittingly applies to another Gryffindor we know of… Namjoon wasn’t playing around when he sorted these guys. Bonus, here you can observe a hufflepuff and (fond) gryffindor in their natural habitat.


So let’s recap. Namjoon is pretty selfless, extremely caring of his friends and family, a feminist, an outspoken ally for those who are mistreated, and is so god damn intelligent everyone REALLY thought he belonged in Ravenclaw.

Wait a minute, I feel like I’ve heard about this person before… There was another Gryffindor like this, I’m sure of it… it’s on the tip of my tongue…

Ah right. 

I’m not saying Namjoon is our version Hermione Granger, but… that’s exactly what I’m saying.

So i'm v new in the Twenty One Pilots fandom and is there anything i need to know about them/can you please tell me everything

hey friend!!! well first off welcome to the clique + im glad that you like twenty one pilots omg that’s so wonderful!!

ok well im just list some facts about them that u might want to know

  • tyler came up w/ the band name “twenty one pilots” from the play All My Sons 
  • their fanbase is usually referred to as “the skeleton clique” or just “the clique” 
  • people in the clique say the phrase “stay street” a lot and it comes from this video and people also say “power to the local dreamer” a lot and that comes from this video
  • some people get a little worked up over the abbreviation of twenty one pilots but it doesn’t really matter if u abbreviate it as top or 21p but tbh i don’t really think it’s that big of a deal so just abbreviate it however u want 
  • they have a logo that looks like |-/ (or as a picture like this)
  • before regional at best was released the band consisted of tyler joseph, nick thomas, and chris salih but then nick and chris ended up leaving the band and josh dun joined 
  • twenty one pilots signed to fueled by ramen after regional at best and some of the songs from regional at best were redone for vessel (which is probably why if u try to find regional at best on itunes you won’t find it !!)   
  • they have three albums (their self titled album, regional at best, and vessel) 
  • kind of related to twenty one pilots but like a brief side note: tyler joseph has a solo album (im p sure he wrote it in high school) called no phun intended and it’s really good so definitely listen to it (the whole thing is on youtube!!) if you get a chance

okay im just going to finish this up w/ some 21p videos that you might enjoy!! 

here are all of their music videos: car radio, holding on to you, house of gold (official video), guns for hands, truce , house of gold (live in a couple of places), ode to sleepmigraine  , forest, goner (this isn’t a song on any of their albums but the video + song is so good so im including it here)

“Nothing is perfect.Life is messy. Relationships are complex. Outcomes are uncertain. People areirrational.” – Hugh Mackay

It’s Monday and you’ve been working for Karnstein Industries officially for two weeks. Or fourteen days. You kind of prefer telling people fourteen days because it feelsa bit longer. Carmilla’s meetings are boring to sit through, but you think you’re getting better at taking notes now that you know what she’s looking for.

Carmilla hasn’t explicitly complained yet, which you’re grateful for. But she doesn’t hold back in telling you whenshe disapproves of something you do. You deal with that as best you can. You’reactually growing to like it at Karnstein Industries despite the high maintenanceand the sketchiness along with the fact that this is not where you’d imaginedyourself working four years ago when you’d started college.

Every morning, you meet her at her office at nine AM sharp with her coffee and your clipboard in hand. Kirsch would let you in, then the three of you would go from meeting to meeting, as Carmilla’s schedule dictated. By the end of each day your hand felt like it would fall off from all the writing you’d do. Carmilla would send you off without a word and Jacob would drive you home, where you’d then eat dinner with your Dad and binge watch something on Netflix or settle into one of your growing pile of books (you’d been eyeing Carmilla’s excessively large book collection in her office and been using that as a book rec). Then you’d go to sleep until your alarm woke you up and you started the next day.

However, this time when you knock on her door, its Carmilla’s voice that tells you to come in and Kirsch isn’t with her which you find weird. Usually, he was practically glued to her side unless she asked him to go do something for her. You think Kirsch’s job description might actually be bodyguard/actual puppy, because he goes and fetches whatever she asks him for quickly and without a single complaint.

Carmilla stands when she sees you and grabs nothing but her coffee mug from your hand. Then she strides past you without a word and a part of you wants to be shocked at her for not acknowledging you at all, but it’s really nothing new. With a soft sigh to yourself, you follow her to the elevator.
