hey for real tho if ur senator(s) voted for devos call them right now and tell them that since they don’t care about the education of their constituents you won’t be supporting their re-election in 2018. let them know they fucked up and that you noticed they fucked up and that you won’t let them fuck up like that again.
I want Blarfkes to enjoy this extra season they have. I want them to hold onto that hope that one day their ship will be canon. Will kiss. Will say ILY. Be endgame. And I want that day to come when they get fuck all in the end. (I really need to channel that resentment into something.)
Eli Bradley: Excuse me? Who made Kate boss of this group? Cassie Lang: You did. Billy Kaplan: You said Kate should be boss of us. Tommy Shepherd: Then you said, “let’s vote” and it was unanimous. Teddy Altman: And then you made her this little plaque that says ‘Boss Of Us.’ Cassie Lang: You put little sparkles on it and- Eli Bradley: Valid points, all.
George W. Bush's petty revenge on a junior high student.
It was the spring of 2001. A dozen or so bright-eyed junior high students eagerly listened as our social studies teacher gave us an important assignment: each of us had to write a letter to a government official on a subject of our choice. Some students wrote to Representative Lois Capps. Others wrote to Senator Barbara Boxer. I decided to write to the big man himself: President George W. Bush.
This was pre-9/11; Bush was just beginning his first term. I wrote him a letter with my ideas on how to improve the public school system. I was courteous and respectful throughout the letter; this was the president I was writing to, after all! Another student also wrote to Bush. She (her parents) supported Al Gore, and she made sure that Bush knew it. She started her letter by letting him know that her family did not vote for him, nor do they support him. The rest of the letter was filled with similar statements, along with HER OWN PLANS to fix the public school system.
A month passed. Thank-you letters from senators and representatives trickled in to the junior high. Then, a plain white envelope from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue arrived for the girl that wrote President Bush. With a smug look on her face, she opened up a thank-you letter from the president that started with:
Dear student, thank you for writing.
Also enclosed was a wallet-sized picture of the president. My letter from the White House came the same day. Instead of a plain envelope, I received a large manila envelope. Enclosed was a letter that started with:
Dear Friend, thank you for writing.
Included was an enormous, 8" x 11" portrait of the president.
This was too much for the girl to handle. It was bad enough for her to receive a smaller portrait than I did, but the fact that Bush addressed me as a friend and her as a mere student made her absolutely furious. I haven’t kept in touch with her since then, but I doubt she ever voted Republican since that incident.
Lexa only displays Slytherin traits because that’s what she’s been taught she needs to be (by that dickhead Titus) and every time she displays her Puff Titus or somebody else tries to squash it. Clarke affirms Lexa’s Puff.
And here are some Hufflepuff traits for you:
Dedication - she’s utterly devoted to her duty to her people and then to clarke
Hard Work - she works too hard to get all these idiots to stop killing each other, girl needs a nap
Fair play - finn, raven, gustus, she always tries to be fair and just
Patience - has patience of a saint to deal with the idiots like Titus, and enough patience to deal with Clarke “No Chill” Griffin which is a miracle
Kindness - Compassion is one of her pillars, her treatment of the Nightbloods
Tolerance - Costia’s head was delivered to her bed and she let ice nation into her coalition, she understands the ambassadors voting against her, she tolerates the sky fuck nuggets
Unafraid of Toil - built a coalition out of chaos
Loyalty - loyal to her people, loyal to those she loves
Those patient Hufflepuffs are true - Lexa has a massive inner conflict over what she’s been taught is necessary to be a good commander and what she intuitively feels is the right way to lead
Rather impartial - head over heart, she can set her feelings aside and make fair and objectie judgments, calling clarke out on her hypocrisy
Modest - she’s worried about making sure her people will be taken care of after she’s gone, but not worried her legacy will live on or that she’ll be remembered as great
Inclusive - willing to accept all clans as her people, willing to accept skyrats as her people
Selfless - she’s dying and she’s thinking of clarke’s safety
Protector - first instinct is to protect clarke, her people, aden, the ducklings, she wants everyone to feel safe and warm and comfortable
