Gryffindors Playing Nerve Headcannon

• The entire Gryffindor house is involved
• Everyone runs a lap around the castle naked at least once
• Someone licks 12 house elves
• Someone jumps off the astronomy tower into six seventh years’ awaiting arms
• A lot of people refuse their dares so the person who gave the dare just ends up doing it
• Someone has to propose to Snape
• Mcgonagall turned her head as she walked past the Gryffindor’s confession of undying love for Snape in the corridor
• A Hufflepuff reported that she was laughing
• The Hufflepuffs get involved in this game after a week
• “OMG NO” is heard once every five minutes
• Soon the Slytherins are doing it too
• Except most of their dares are stuff like putting on a really thick line of winged eyeliner and all the Gryffindors and Hufflepuffs are bored with them
• A Hufflepuff dares the ENTIRE Slytherin house to stand up in the middle of one of Dumbledore’s speeches and start singing “A Cauldron Full of Hot, Strong Love” by Celestina Warbeck
• They do it
• The Gryffindors join of course
• Then the Hufflepuffs do too
• Even the Ravenclaws are doing it now
• Now the Ravenclaws are in and giving the craziest dares and taking artsy pictures of inter-house interaction at Hogwarts
• House Unity

First day of Kwanzaa

Kwanzaa: Umoja (Unity). To strive for a principled & harmonious togetherness in the family, community, and world Afro-Community #kwanzaa

Kwanzaa is a week-long holiday (Dec 26th-31st) created in 1966 to unite people in study of African philosophies and traditions, and offer a cultural counterpart to the political goals of the time. Kwanzaa was the vision of Dr. Maulana Karenga (current chair of the Africana Studies Department at California State University, Long Beach), and he describes it as “an ancient and living cultural tradition which reflects the best of African thought and practice.” It was first celebrated among members of the burgeoning Black Power movement and initially contended that Christianity was a White religion that Blacks should shun, but has since evolved into a cultural holiday rather than a religious one. The name derives from the Swahili phrase, “first fruits of harvest,” highlighting the Pan-African focus on the East African language of Swahili (despite the fact that East Africa was not involved in the Atlantic Slave Trade). Kwanzaa is based on Seven Principles (the Nguzo Saba): Umoja (unity); Kujichagulia (self-determination); Ujima (collective responsibility); Ujamaa (cooperative economics); Nia (purpose); Kuumba (creativity), and Imani (faith). According to Dr. Karenga, it “brings a cultural message which speaks to the best of what it means to be African and human in the fullest sense.”

The first day of Kwanzaa, umoja-unity. It’s appropriate that this principle begins the celebration of Kwanzaa, of our community and it’s spirit and values.

And in this time an appreciation for unity is necessary. We have been divided for so long. We’ve taken sides on everything from skin tone to musical preference. From who has the newest kicks to what college you attended. These lines some more playful than others ultimately serve to divide us and diffuse the collective power of our community.

Bernice Johnson Reagon in “Home Girl: A Black Feminist Anthology” talked about the difference between a communal existence purported through coalition and community through unity. Reagon says, Coalescing is not comfortable, she likens it to being at the top of a mountain. Yes everyone has made it but there isn’t enough air, it’s hard to breathe, everyone doesn’t get what they need. But unity, unity deals with everyone, where they are. Everyone is seen and each need is addressed. And everyone progresses collectively.

If we as a people can unify over a few things well be prosperous over many things. Our Unity can bring about an end to Police Brutality. Our Unity can bring forth Economic and Housing equality. Our Unity can fortify, strengthen, and expand our Historically Black Colleges and Universities. Our Unity does not have to be perfect, indeed it may include some aspects of the coalition but the power of us, no matter how imperfect is greater than any individual striving or singular action.

Amani na Baraka. Furaha Kwanzaa

I feel as if Shay is one of the most well-written characters in Assassin’s Creed. His struggles are real because of how guilty he feels. Arno, to quote Zero Punctuation, feels like Ezio 2.0. I love Unity, and I like Arno, however it doesn’t leave me with the same feeling Rogue does. When I played Rogue I wanted Shay to get his redemption, and his freedom from his own prison of guilt. Arno didn’t feel nearly as deep to me.
