Kaisar is sentient.

According to Gou Inoue Kaisar is a sentient zombie because he was created by a bite instead of magic. It’s been said it might get an explanation in a follow-up OVA. There’s a problem though: It doesn’t apply to Genesis where all of Rita’s zombies are mindless drones regardless of how they’ve been created. And yes she did it by biting several times (eps 4 & 7 off the top of my head). Thus VS continues its glorious tradition of complete disregard of the previously established lore for fanservice.
But here’s a thought, why don’t we take this a step further and save Amira from Bahamut then? If there are no boundaries in rewriting the canon so why not just do that?

This is really interesting! So, now that all the primaries are out, why would the different houses gravitate towards joining the Death Eaters? Like, why do the Death Eaters pull more Slytherins than Hufflepuffs?

Well our Primaries don’t always match up with what people tend to be sorted in-canon, and when they do it’s not because we intended them to! So to say that Slytherin Primaries would gravitate more than the other houses toward being Death Eaters, I would actually say is probably not the case.

You’re right in thinking that Hufflepuffs have a lot of potential to become Death Eaters. We sort Bellatrix Lestrange as a Hufflepuff Primary. If they can be convinced that muggles and muggle borns are inhuman, or at least less human than wizards and witches, then the actions of the Death Eaters probably wouldn’t carry the same level of horror for them. Ravenclaws would join the Death Eaters if they accepted the system that Voldemort proposed, and Gryffindors could be swayed by twisted appeals to their morals. Get their logic or their gut to follow the teachings of Voldemort, and you’ve got yourself some new Death Eaters. I really don’t think that in the face of something as plainly evil as Voldemort, you’re going to have any particular house favoring the cause. 

A big part of the why then, in the case of the books, is that…JKR really doesn’t like Slytherin. Her Slytherins are all evil. The most redeemable Slytherin we probably have is Slughorn (Slytherpuff, we think), who’s still unsavory. And as far as I can tell, her justification for that is that power corrupts. And arguably Narcissa when she lies to Voldemort to save Draco, but…she’s still married to and supportive of a Death Eater. She doesn’t get to e considered a good person. According to how JKR writes them, all Slytherins get caught up in their ambitions and their schemes and they forget the things that really matter— bravery, kindness, friendship. Things that she doesn’t particularly show Slytherins being capable of. 

And if you take people like that and put them in a war-torn world where one of the ways out, one of the ways to protect your family, is to join with Voldemort? I can understand the train of logic that would get you there. And it’s more of a stretch, but I can understand the thematic logic, at least, that would get you to the final battle and not have a single Slytherin student wanting to fight.

There are some other interesting theories, like the importance Slytherin puts on blood purity encouraging and propagating and being at the least sympathetic to Voldemort’s violence, and like the social importance put on your Hogwarts house and the pressures that would go along with that, but none of those would explain why Slytherins are unanimously awful. The story of how ambition and selfishness and family loyalty can be positive things just wasn’t the story that JKR was interesting in telling. 

Which like, yeah okay, they’re her books and she can do what she wants with them. 

But as far as your question? I don’t think Slytherins are more likely than the other houses to turn Death Eater. I could come up with some answer about protecting your family by siding with whoever the biggest bad in the room is, but I don’t actually think that’s a strong enough motivation for most people in that situation. You’re going to end up with Slytherins who flee and Slytherins who stay quiet and who join the Ministry and try to help from political angles, and you’re going to end up with Slytherins who roar right alongside those Gryffindors and join the fight with all their gusto.

Suspended Service

I hate when I’m disconnected
Friends sending me texts
And I can’t respond
So then they feeling rejected
Shit is hectic
I don’t charge my phone
So when it dies
I don’t resurrect it
Because there really is no point
Can’t call anybody
Nobody can call me
Can’t text anybody
Nobody can text me
But shit that’s nothing new
Even when my phone is on
I don’t hear from half of you
It’s like people done lost my number
Which makes me wonder
If I didn’t have a phone
Would people hit up my Tumblr
Facebook
Twitter
Email
I mean something to let me know I was thought about
A simple message will do or even a shout out
I’m not picky so whichever way is fine with me
I just don’t like those feelings that I get within me
It’s like I have all these contacts in my phone
But if we don’t talk it makes me feel alone
Basically what I’m trying to say is
I really hate when my service is temporarily suspended
It makes a part of me feel as if my life has ended
Dramatic much I know I know
But ya’ll don’t understand
I just really love my friends
So if I’m unable to text them everyday
Then pieces of myself just aren’t okay
