Hogwarts House Study Moods
  • The Gryffindor: group quizzes and jeopardy and flashcards, interacts with material whenever possible so they make models for chem and draw out maps for history and act out Shakespeare, studies in some friend's room a bit too loud to actually be focusing, highlights bc it's the quickest, pomodoros involve longer time divisions, always in OH listening to others' questions, forgets to eat and then they all order pizza followed by a Taco Bell run in the wee hours of the morn when they're hungry again
  • The Hufflepuff: learns by teaching others, has to study in advance bc they know others are going to ask for help during exam weeks, secretly procrastinates by planning for everything in their bujos, washi tape tabs, fruity non-caf teas and herbal teas to relax or sleep or to settle nerves, has gel pens in every possible color, draws the neatest diagrams, can't prioritize so studies everything, uses that essential oil trick to remember things better by smell association, focuses best with dubstep
  • The Ravenclaw: notes, notes, and notes, mind maps to connect ideas no matter how unrelated they seem, solo studying in their rooms, green tea, classical music in the background, gets led off track focusing on details that have never been mentioned in class, will die for graph paper, accidentally pulls all-nighters bc they're so obsessed with understanding every single thing inside and out, color codes with basic colors nothing fancy, eats a bunch of toast and cereal bc they don't want to waste time
  • The Slytherin: practices old tests and gets extra material from others who have taken the class, motivated by watching others study so they're always at the library during finals or at dark and quiet cafes, the night owl-iest of the bunch, iced cold brews no matter the weather, makes comprehensive study guides that cover all testable points, does nothing all term but kicks into high gear a week and a half before any exam, owns a billion black pens and has an opinion about each of them, listens to indie alt

Well, we did it again. We partnered with Stone Brewing Company to create a brand spanking new ice cream flavor modeled after one of their beers. The point of inspiration this time? Stone’s signature Mocha IPA, a beautifully bitter beer 🍺 with the indulgence of a mocha stout ☕️ and a subtle hint of dark cherry 🍒 . Mocha Black Cherry ice cream hits all the same notes. Plush coffee ice cream made with @intelligentsiacoffee beans. Sweet-sour cherry sauce. And bitter cocoa nibs that’ll leave a hops-like bitterness on your tongue. Hands down, it’s one of Jeni’s all-time favorite flavors. 


I took a screenshot because L/xa’s name wasn’t properly edited. I originally wasn’t going to answer this because it’s obviously meant to incite drama, but it occurred to me that I’ve never actually answered this question on my blog at all and I do want to have this discussion. 

(This will be the first and only time I answer an ask like this as an FYI). This post is long, over 4000 words with this intro, so I’ve put it under the cut. It contains helpful bolding and italics as well as pictorial representation as further canon evidence. Happy reading!!!

At least it was only a seasonal job.

In two months’ time, the space would be transformed into Decked Halls, a store bursting with fiber optic trees, wreaths of every size, and stockings seemingly discarded by a series of giants. Once all the gifts were unwrapped and this year became the next, it would change into The Spirit of Spring. Which was always kind of a cruel joke given the grayest days of winter. Fun in the Sun would rear its head after that with so many sunglasses and towels and displays of sand that tended to stick in shoes and turn one off to the very idea of spending a day at the beach.

But for the moment, it was The Devil’s Den, a business bursting with costumes for men and women, boys and girls, dogs and cats of every size. Add to that decorations for front yards suggesting doors to other dimensions, kettles that brewed dried ice seeming like the misty home of Macbeth’s three witches. When filling out the application, it seemed like such a smart idea. Because autumn was and always had been your favorite time of year, and the hours fit like a glove around your current course load.

It only took one shift of rowdy high school boys who seemed twenty and not three years your junior making rude noises behind the many masks to lift the spell. Add to that the animatronic fortune teller speaking in a loop that only made you want to ask when the world would end, hoping that the answer was tomorrow. Just a few more weeks. You could hack it; you’d been through worse. At least this day was somewhat quiet save for the young mother wanting her daughter to be a butterfly. The lovely little lady kept gravitating to psycho clown. One more reason you were never having children. The two older girls in the back seemed harmless enough while debating which kind of princess they would portray. You could tell them some stories about the pink dress and the violet…

Trying to get lost in your homework, you heard the door open and close without looking up. Footsteps drew nearer… along with a tap that started to grate on your nerves. Lifting the eyes that began to roll in your head, you stopped short of scoffing when you saw him.

Pairing: Jungkook X Yoongi X reader

Genre: Everything

Disclaimer: You should read the character description first

“Just go already!” you shouted at Namjoon as the grape scurried to the door to your apartment. “I’m making sure you’re going to be safe little me” he ruffled your hair and smiled as you continued to push him out of the small apartment complex.

“Just because you’re a giant does not give you the right to make fun of me” you huffed and pushed him out.

“Alright Y/n, have a good night!” he screamed walking down the steps.

You sighed and closed the door, a craving for ice cream brewed inside of you as you waltz over to your freezer opening it to find no ice cream. 

“UGHHHHH” You huffed out slamming the freezer door.

Walking over to your door and slipping on your sneakers, you grab your credit card and walk out of the door.

Mint? No, Vanilla? No, Chocolate? Yes!

You picked the ice cream and turned around not noticing the tall man behind you, bumping into the hard chest and spilling the ice cream everywhere you grunt in annoyance.

“I’m so sorry” you apologised getting to your knees realising its no use since the chocolate substance has spilt all over the floor.

“No, I’m sorry. Here let me buy you a new one”

You could tell who it was from the voice, you looked up to see Jungkook staring back at you. 

“Oh hey! Y/n right?” he smiled, suddenly you had become mute and could only express your answers in actions.

You nodded your head and smiled.

“C’mon” His hand found the small of your back and brought you to the cashier, after paying for his crisps and your ice cream you two headed out into the night. Shivering from the cold you felt him place his jacket around you.

“Thanks” you muttered, he nodded towards you and breathed in the cold still air.

“Let me walk you home” he offered, you shook your head no.

“No it’s fine, it’s cold and I just took your jacket. It’s only a ten minute walk from here” He stared at you, not being able to pull away.

“Esm- I mean Y/n, if anything happened to you I couldn’t forgive myself” he stumbled over his words, mixing up your name with his dead girl friends.

“Okay, yeah sure. Why not?” you turned on your heel and walked in the direction towards your apartment, him memorising every step to it.

“So what’s good to do around here?” you ask, trying to make at least some what of a conversation.

“Um, well nothing really. I don’t know why you came to this town in the first place. Theres so many better places to go” he smiled laughing.

“Like where?” you questioned.

His eyes lit up like a child’s at a candy store.

“Japan, America, London, Rome…Paris!” he smiled brightly.

“I’ll keep that in mind when I win the lottery” you chuckled stopping at the entrance to your apartment.

“I’ll take you there” his smile dropped showing he was dead serious.



“You just happened to bump into her at the corner store?” Jimin asked the young boy as he stepped foot into the mansion.

“Yes, I did. I needed a snack” he shook the packet of crisps in his left hand.

“A) We don’t eat and B) you hate that flavour if we do eat” Tae laughed pointing at the barbecue flavoured chips.

“God fine!” he threw the chips at Taehyung.

“So what if I was watching her? I have to make sure that bastard wolf doesn’t ask her out” Jungkook huffed and sat down in his arm rest.

“Are you afraid he’ll imprint on her?” Jimin asked sitting up popping a blood tablet into his water.

“Of course I am! You know when those fuckers imprint we can’t do anything about it” Jungkook spat and took a sip of the blood in his cup.

“Tell me again why we can’t do anything once they’ve been imprinted on them?”  Jimin laughed at the boys question.

“Because when the wolf imprints on the girl, the girl stinks of wolf and she slowly falls in love with the one who imprinted on her” Jimin explains.

“Did you have to say the first part?” Taehyung chuckled.

“It’s true! Right Jungkook?” he asked the younger boy for more recognition of his efforts.

“Yeah” he mumbled “I’m going to my room” Jungkook uttered to the boys as midnight fell. 

Jungkook opened and slammed the bedroom door, thinking about imprinting and how to stop it. Where as on the other side of town Yoongi was thinking of the exact same thing.

“Just imprint on her, problem solved” Hoseok told Yoongi while they were playing some game.

“It wouldn’t be fair though” Yoongi told him as he furiously pressed buttons on his controller.

“To who? To that blood sucking freak? Since when did you care about him?” Jin whined watching the two fight over the game.

“To her, I don’t want her falling in love with me from my power. I want her to fall in love with me because she generally wants to” Yoongi smashed a button on the controller making him win.

Hoseok threw his controller on the ground and turned to the older boy.

“Can you believe this?” he asked Jin pointing to Yoongi. “Since when do you care about feelings?” Jin asked taking a sip of his sprite.

“She’s different.”

“Namjoon I can’t believe you” You huffed over the phone.

“I’m sorry I have a lot of work to do today” he pleaded over the phone with you, little did you know he was currently making many explosions from the postions he was brewing.

“And that is why you come to the library to do work!” you shouted getting shushed by the other busy students.

“C’mon Y/n you know me, I don’t study” he laughed. You rolled your eyes and gave another huff.

“Yeah, I still wonder how you got into this university. I’ll speak to you later.” You end the called and sit back down, opening the Philosophy text book and reading through the abnormally long paragraph.

“This seat taken?” you look up to find the familiar boy pointing to the wooden chair.

“U-Um sure, go ahead” you smiled up at him making his heart flutter. “Thanks” he sat down staring at you rather than his book. 

“Seems hard” you say looking at his textbook, something about medicine clearly you wouldn’t understand.

He looked down at the textbook he grabbed from Jin’s shelf not realising his friend was pre studying medicine to get into the course.

“Oh…yeah. Not really actually” he laughed along with you.

“Well I’m glad I can have one friend that at least has a brain, Namjoon doesn’t even study” you giggle looking back down to the text book.

He stared at you for a couple of minutes, taking in your beautiful appearance. Thanks to his incredible sense of smell he took in the strawberry perfume you had kept even since you were a kid. He was enjoying the minutes he had of solitude until a dark energy came over to you two.

“Jungkook!” you waved, smiling. He smiled back at you, mesmerised at how much you look like his ex. His smile quickly faded as he spotted who you were sitting with.

“Yoongi, I didn’t know you read” he smiled.

“Jungkook, I’m surprised you know where the library is!” 

Vegan Earl Grey Cupcakes with Tea & Lavender "Cream Cheese” Frosting

I’ve always been a big lover of tea, but especially recently I’ve been obsessed with Earl Grey. I often find myself getting a nice London Fog instead of a coffee. These cupcakes were only bound to happen. I was struggling to find what to bake for a Christmas party when these suddenly popped into my head.

They were a little bit tricky to nail! I knew that to make these I was going to start out with a vanilla base recipe then add the tea, but HOW is the question. I started out by steeping some extra strong tea and allowing it to cool. I then added some of it to vanilla batter but it then became too runny, so I added a little bit more flour but then the mixture became to glutinous and the flavour wasn’t very strong. They ended up baking okay, they achieved nice domes and the texture wasn’t awful, it was just too dense for my liking and it tasted a little bland. Instead of steeping the tea, I decided to just add the leaves directly into the batter. I used my vanilla cupcake recipe and emptied 4 teabags into the mixture. Once the batter was mixed I was concerned with how they’d come out because I didn’t taste a strong earl grey flavour but the batter consistency was right so I stuck them in anyway. 10 minutes into baking, the most wonderful tea aroma filled my house and I immediately knew they were going to work. The tea just needed some heat to activate the flavour and they turned out so good. I served them at my Christmas party and everyone raved about them. Whenever I bake something, my plan is to make it “not taste vegan”, and these were just that. I also made a vegan cream cheese frosting and infused with with more tea and lavender.

The texture on these is amazing. I used my go to vanilla cupcake recipe and the flavour of the earl grey tea just sank so well into them. They are light, fluffy, and moist. Heres what you’ll need to make them:

CUPCAKES: (makes 12)

1 ¾ cup all purpose flour
1 cup cane sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
½ cup coconut oil
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
4 Earl Grey tea bags
Mix the sugar, almond milk, coconut oil, vanilla, tea and vinegar together until smooth. Then add the flour, baking powder and baking soda and mix until just combined. Bake at 350 C for minutes and you’re set!


¾ tub vegan butter (Earth Balance)
½ tub Daiya cream cheese
2 tsp vanilla
4 cups icing sugar
Strong brewed tea infused with lavender petals
Whip the butter and cream cheese together until fluffy and well combined. Then add the icing sugar 1 cup at a time until the frosting is fluffy and smooth. Then add your vanilla and tea to taste. This will make enough frosting for 12 cupcakes if you pipe a swirl on them like in the picture, but you can half the recipe if you want to spread them on. I sprinkled mine with some dried lavender, but get creative!
