MCL Hogwarts Tag╰☆╮

Rules: This is for your Candy. Fill with what your Candy could answer. If you have more than one candy or a genderbent, you can do this for them too.

I was tagged by: @zurysalvatore and @kasdya thank you so much💙 ^^

And since number seven has magic properties in the wizarding world, tag at least 7 other blogs:
@r-sweti, @literallysubjective@justanothermclblog, @annon35, @mcl-limos, @docete-warrior, @mizukiinozomii@docetedesequilibrada@giccix, @vrael-mcl… uh, I think I tagged more than 7 x’D. If you already did it or you just don’t want to feel free to ignore ^^U and if anyone else wants to do it you can say that I tagged you~

Say “Hi!”: Uhm… hey there! I’m Liz ^^ 

What house did you get sorted into: Ravenclaw

Are you a muggleborn, an half-blood or a pureblood: I’m a half-blood, my mother is a wizard and my father is a muggle.

Of which elements your wand is made: Pear wood with a unicorn hair core 11 ½" and hard flexibility·        

  • Pear wood: This golden-toned wood produces wands of splendid magical powers, which give of their best in the hands of the warm-hearted, the generous and the wise. Possessors of pear wands are, in my experience, usually popular and well-respected. There is no known case of a pear wood wand that has been in the hands of a dark wizard or witch. The pear wands are among the most resistant and can often still have a new appearance even though they have been used extensively for many years.·         
  • Unicorn hair: Unicorn hair generally produces the most consistent magic, and is least subject to fluctuations and blockages. Wands with unicorn cores are generally the most difficult to turn to the Dark Arts. They are the most faithful of all wands, and usually remain strongly attached to their first owner, irrespective of whether he or she was an accomplished witch or wizard. Minor disadvantages of unicorn hair are that they do not make the most powerful wands (although the wand wood may compensate) and that they are prone to melancholy if seriously mishandled, meaning that the hair may ‘die’ and need replacing.

What pet do you have (owl, cat, toad): I have a grey owl named “Dynamite”.

What is your favourite class: Transfiguration, Alchemy and Magical Theory

What is your patronous: Granian Winged Horse.

You are in any extra curricular activites (quidditch, dueling club, herbology club, potions club, gobstones club, chess club, Lumaclub…): Herbology and Potions club.

You are or will be a prefect/headgirl/captain of the quidditch team/ecc: Not really, too much stress.

Do you have any special ability (parseltongue, divination ability…): I’m a seer.

You are a troublemaker, the first of your class, both, the one who blows things: I’m the first of my class, such a nerdy girl.

Do you often get detention: No way. Boring good girl.

What do you want to do after Hogwarts: I’m not totally sure yet, but I’m kind of interested in being a teacher in a wizarding educational institution.

Would you participate in the Triwizard Tournament (without Voldemort and Harry Potter of course): Totally! I can be pretty competitive.

Your favourite teacher: Ms. McGonagall.

Your favourite fantastic beast: Thunderbird.

Your favourite spell: Bluebell Flames.

What would Amortentia smell for you: Morning dew, puppy’s breath, chocolate, warm bread and freshly fallen snow.

anonymous asked:

Hi sorry if you've answered this already, but what's going on with Jimin and white people??? I'm seeing people defend him or bash him but no one is explaining what happened :/

~~i don’t know how to answer this without writing everything i feel about it, so i’m sorry if this post is long. pls remember in me answering this that i’m white, and that will directly impact my experience w this + that there are poc in this fandom who have made posts about it and those should be centered + are most likely more informative as they come from individuals directly affected by racism. if you’re another white stan who is upset by what i have to say, please direct comments to my instant messaging rather than ask box as i’d rather have legitimate discussions over messaging rather than flooding my followers with more discourse over a nonissue that’s been going on for days at this point i think a lot of people are bored + tired of it, please read the whole thing thank you!~~


oh dont worry anon nothing happened to jimin!! he’s totally fine and safe, it’s just a fandom joke within poc circles that white people are getting upset over.

this is the context in which i know the “jimin hates white people” joke and how it’s become relevant again recently, why it isnt racist, and why white people need to just leave it alone and not fight about it because it isnt hurting anybody: 

  • there were always a few jimin hates white people jokes that would surface here and there over the years ever since that one white 14 year old boy was bossy to jimin on ahl like theyd just pop up sometimes lol
  • so during bbma voting when bts started getting attention, some big name accounts and internet people started giving bts attention which in some cases was a good thing! but in other cases not so much. 
  • For example i dont remember his name but one of the guys from epicmealtime declared himself the jimin fanclub president and was obviously coming into the fandom just to start discourse for no reason + make fun of bts and also armys and use us for attention. he was both causing fights within the fandom and trying to make armys look bad claiming armys were being “””racist””” against him, which obviously cannot happen as he is white and theres no such thing as racism against white people. I was also pretty heated when he started derailing conversations about race by posting pictures of starving jews during the holocaust implying that jews being exterminated was an example of how you can in fact be racist against white people. I dont know what happened with him after that as i blocked him for using pictures of my people being tortured, from an event that wiped out nearly my entire family, as nothing but empty conversation ammunition for a fake and offensive cause
  • ANYWAY thats where i personally started seeing the old jimin hates white people jokes come back, people shutting this guy + other obnoxious whites down 
  • like for example some other youtube guy i didnt know who has a track record of using blackface for jokes/being transphobic. Also on his snapchat he took a picture of some random east asian guy on the street and just wrote “jimin” above him, like obviously that type of person is racist and awful
  • also pewdiepie who has a history of being racist and just a plain awful person
  • so really most of the “jimin hates white people” jokes as i saw them (being active on twitter) were poc shutting down racist whites + making jokes at the expense of white people which is completely fine to do, as those type of jokes serve as an outlet for some and are extremely harmless as they do not really effect white people in the real world
  • i also saw them in regards to jimin looking upset at the bbmas which once again is just a harmless joke at the expense of white people, and does not effect jimin, bts, or white people.
  • really if poc make white people jokes and you don’t like it, scroll past and ignore it. as white ppl we’re able to do that. when white people make jokes regarding people who arent white, those jokes do not exist in a vacuum and contribute to greater forms oppression that legitimately exist and effect the lives of poc on a regular basis, but since those same systems are not im place to oppress white people, white people are not effected by jokes about our race in such ways as poc are (if you do not understand what i mean by jokes contributing to systems of oppression message me because I’m not going into it, that could be it’s own post)
  • that is why you cannot compare jokes about white people to jokes about poc and consider them the same. theres an entire historical and societal context that plays into one circumstance and DOES NOT with the other. you need to take that into account in understanding why one side effects larger things happening in the world and systemically keeps people of certain races down, while the other is just a couple words that might make a few people on the internet feel a bit sensitive
  • I really like the following graphic so i’m gonna use it to help explain what i mean:


  • basically, as this shows, jokes about white people really don’t mater in the grand scheme of things and are not racist because racism is more than creating hurt feelings. part of racism is words contributing to larger systems of oppression. jimin hates white people jokes do not do this, and therefore are not racist and hurt nobody. 
  • i see people saying it makes jimin look bad? does it really? is this legitimately having people think jimin hates white people? not really… if someone doesnt know the context of people saying it, they can just ask another bts stan and they’ll tell you “oh its just a joke thats been going around”. jimin obviously doesnt hate white people and i don’t think anyones starting to believe that because of this. 
  • also, there are jokes that legitimately do damage jimin much more than these jokes do, that these same white people claiming “this damages jimin” are not upset about! why? if you really cared about people making jokes that damage jimin, worry more about jokes that are racist and fetishizing towards jimin that happen regularly rather than these jokes. 
  • jokes about jimin hating white people can be easily brushed off as jimin does not actually hate white people, while jokes about his accent/english or fetishizing him for being asian DO contribute to gross larger concepts that actually harm jimin. if you care about jimin please focus more on these jokes rather than the jimin hates white people jokes, as jimin hates white people jokes are easy to dispel and are not rooted in anything related to real life
  • (although if jimin did hate white people that would be fine + understandable lol but thats a different story for a different day)
  • so basically: whether people are using these jokes to shut racist whites down, or are just using them for fun, both situations are extremely harmless and can easily be ignored by white people, and do no harm other than making some white people feel a bit uncomfortable. Honestly if the worst a joke at the expense of your race does is make you feel a bit uncomfortable and does not contribute to larger ways in which you are oppressed, you definitely dont have as much to worry about as poc who do have to worry about such things so just ignore the jokes and go on with your day.

First Maggie and Alex scene next season:

Maggie: “Woah, Danvers, I–why don’t we move in together or exchange keys or something first?”
Alex: *obviously relieved* “Oh thank god, I panicked and got swept up at the idea of doing something romantic. Yes, let’s do that, which makes far more sense considering how long we’ve been together and this is my first serious relationship.”

And done. No drama over it and, seriously, no wedding yet. Like come on.

She was a queen and a princess, born of stars and night, careful and carefree, each single sign unpracticed through long study. 
[…]
Such a treasure, she was, that queen, such a treasure — the greatest amongst a city of treasures, the greatest treasure that her people had ever possessed — that she could not have been left without her guardians.
[…]
For the people, they were soldiers and yet, in her honor, they were Knights. Each one of them loved her, of course, for it was not in their power to to resist her grace. Each one of them would have fought a thousand wars at her request, and not a one would have died in the attempt, but each one of them would have died for a smile. They were brave and elegant like footprints in the snow. Surpassing in art, they trained constantly for her defense, singing their war-songs to each other like the tides at the edge of the world. The people were cold and kind, yes, cold and kind, but where the people had leisure, her knights had purpose, and that made them mighty, bright like the stars that burn their holes in the sky. She was the only thing that could have broken their will, and they would have loved her all the more for that.
—  Polaris, Ben Lehman

TAGGED BY: snagged from the lovely: @hyoukan
TAGGING: @seacrowned, @treurspel, @karismatickitty, @breakmaki, @cinderella-esque, @guaritrice + you!

I can’t stop crying. I’ve been so homesick since we moved away but never more than I do now. I want to go home, i feel so lost watching it on the news.

I don’t really know where I’m going with this. I just need to get some things out of my brain. Even though I can’t shake the one thing that I really want to get rid of.

He came for our children.

tagged by @myg for lockscreen/last song/selfie, thank u, i’m sorry it took me so long, i’m not doing too good health wise and it’s hard for me to do anything lol

tagging @daegupan @jiminssi @kimseokjinsthighs @jellyfishes

my favorite thing about the spanish harry potter translation is that instead of calling voldemort “the dark lord,” they call him señor tenebroso, which basically means “mr. spooky”

someone, a fool: video games cause adhd

me, an intellectual: video games provide tactile and visual stimulation and are designed to have a balance between reward (for completing your goals) and challenge (in difficulty of the game) with music designed to motivate the player without being distracting. all of these components work together to create a positive feedback loop that adhd people are more likely to be engaged by and enjoy compared to longer tasks with relatively smaller payoff like chores or even something like maintaining the focus to complete long books and projects
