Summary:  The story of how Harry Potter single-handedly lost Gryffindor the House Cup while attempting to have a “normal” year at Hogwarts. Featuring Harry’s suspicious nature turned up to eleven again, a new DADA teacher who is so not here for Harry’s fame, multiple detentions, Slytherins being sneaky, Hufflepuffs being sneakier, and the mystery of Draco Malfoy’s hoodie because seriously Hermione who gave that to him and is he wearing it just to torment me? This is ridiculous!

This fic, well, it’s basically the cutest thing ever. Like it says in the summary, Harry’s trying to have a normal year at Hogwarts, worry only about his classes and homework and Quidditch, but if we’re talking about normal for Harry, naturally that means being obsessed about Draco. I mean, obviously.

What’s Draco doing? Well, he’s wearing a Hufflepuff hoodie. And it’s awesome, this hoodie; it’s got badgers on the sleeves and a bit ‘Hufflepride’ emblazoned on the back and he’s wearing it all the time, and Harry’s dying to know why. He has all these crazy theories, and what’s worse (and by “worse” I mean better!) he, Draco, knows he’s driving Harry crazy. But that’s not all either, he’s being friendly to other Houses, hanging out with Hufflepuffs and Ravenclaws alike and yeah, Harry needs to know what’s the deal.

And the road to Harry unravelling the mystery of Draco’s hoodie is completely awesome and hilarious, losing, well, 1,000 points in the process, but also gaining so much more. :D 

Killing spiders makes their gene pool a lot sneakier. If zombies attacked tomorrow, the slowest and dumbest people would die off, and the human race would become stronger. Therefore, if you manage to smash a spider, you likely got rid of the dumbest one in your house, allowing the smarter, hidden spiders to hook up and make lots of baby spider geniuses. Source

- Bitty being super suspicious of everyone because of the surprise he got on his last birthday

- he thinks Jack is gonna be even sneakier this year so he goes full-on detective mode and starts Investigating months in advance

- He finds this flyer for a baking convention taking place about a week before his birthday just lying around in Jack’s flat when Bitty visits providence to see a game

- Bitty is convinced Jack got him tickets to the convention for his birthday

- THEN Bitty notices Jack is acting shifty whenever they Skype, never pointing his webcam so the kitchen is showing and one day he gets a glimpse and how long has Jack had that beautiful oven because Bitty’s pretty sure he didn’t see it when he visited a few weeks ago?? Did Jack get him ANOTHER oven for his birthday??

- he’s so confused because if Jack got him another oven why did he also get those tickets (the answer is that Jack is a giant nerd who loves him very much)

- R&H let slip that Jack has been ‘planning a suuuper romantic date bro’ (‘Holtzy you weren’t supposed to mention it to him!!!’ 'Oh CRAP’)

- Chowder keeps giving him these dopey looks and Bits knows that Chowder must have info on Jack’s present so he bakes a shitton of bribery pie and eventually Chowder cracks and lets loose that he thinks Jack has got Beyoncé tickets? He’s been asking a lot of weird questions about Bitty’s Beyoncé playlists

- at this point Bitty doesn’t know what to think and he’s going crazy because what is Jack planning?? Baking convention followed by Beyoncé concert followed by candlelit dinner where Jack reveals the new oven he got for Bitty?

- but it gets to the day before Bitty’s birthday and Jack hasn’t mentioned the convention even though it was a week ago? Was it a red herring??

- He wakes up at 6 am to the sound of Beyoncé

- Specifically his Beyoncé baking playlist

- Bits figures the boys are planning some kind of all-day kegster or something and heads downstairs

- But when he gets down he can’t hear any of the usual chirping between the boys and what’s that smell??

- Baking. That smell is baking. Specifically his maple crusted apple pie

- and there’s Jack who wasn’t supposed to arrive until this afternoon, standing in the Haus kitchen at 6am with flour in his hair, humming along a little to Halo, and the pie he’s making looks Terrible with a capital T and Bits almost wants to laugh

- and the light is shining through the window and catching perfectly in his hair and Bitty has to stop for a moment because suddenly he’s travelled back to that day last year when he and Jack baked together, and good lord that seems like forever ago now and his heart beats a little faster because everything has changed but at the same time nothing has

- Bitty must have made some kind of sound because Jack turns and blushes and stammers a little and oh, that’s new

- 'Bitty, you weren’t supposed to wake up yet(!!!)’

- and now he looks closer he can see more ruined pies scattered across the counter and he didn’t think he could love this boy any more but. Here he is with a few tears welling up

- 'woah Bits I know I ruined your pie recipe I’m so sorry I wanted to surprise you so I got a new oven and I went to a convention for advice and practiced but I knew I should’ve just bought you something and please don’t cry I just wanted to learn for y-’

- Jack can’t say anymore because suddenly his mouth is being Occupied.

Whenever Trump gets discussed here, at least in my life, it’s done with an air of, “oh those silly Americans.”

And I’m in the UK, but this goes for a lot of countries - Trump is only one manifestation of a disease spreading through the Western world.

Hatecrimes against immigrants, refugees, people of colour, Muslims, LGBTQIA people and more are still happening at an alarming rate. Disabled people are living in squalor and facing violence of all stripes. Sexual and other violence against women is so commonplace as to be heartbreaking. Not just near wherever Trump is, but everywhere.

Trump cannot be an excuse for us non-Americans to pretend that everything is hunky-fucking-dory elsewhere.

Trump cannot be an excuse for us not to stand together against the fascism that turns us and others into targets.

Just because other prominent political figures - many of whom are actually already in power and I’m talking about YOU THERESA FUCKING MAY - are sneakier about their fascist leanings and couch their eugenicist ideas in fancier, politer language does not mean we can give them a pass.

Just because the spirit of Florida Man is manifesting itself in a steaming pile of wig-topped faeces we can all laugh at, doesn’t mean Trump is an isolated problem.

Things are getting worse. All over. And we need to make them better as best we can.

Riley’s reactions to Farkle at the Bay Window in GM Sneak Attack (X)

  1. “I’m always out there.” (Compare that to Maya’s face when he says it.)
  2. “Why, thank you.” [flirty] (Again, go back and compare to Maya.)
  3. “I would do whatever you asked me.”
  4. “I want you happy.”

Yes, there is Riarkle as early as this, and it’s even sneakier (pun intended) than Lucaya. None of this is intentional on either part, but they already have a different rapport.

I love the irony of Tell-Tale-Tot. Maya thinks Riley can’t lie/Keep a Secret and in Season 2 alone she managed to do it in Rileytown, Texas to New Years and in Rah-Rah.

I don’t know if it’s because Maya is just that good of a teacher or that Riley is just really good at playing a chump when in reality she’s sneakier than all of them.

armys…. i have never needed u to be sneakier with taking fancams and secret pics more than today at this muster, i’m depending on you to share the absolute mindfuck live performances of baepsae and house of cards bc i need to see tht happen more than i need breath right now…

Traps for New Vets: Part 4, neoplasia

Approximately a third of our senior pets with develop cancer at some point in their life. Facts are, if they live long enough then it will definitely happen. Our job is to identify it, and do something about. For some types of cancer a chance to cut is a chance to cure, but only if identified early enough. 

Sometimes you don’t get a chance to identify neoplasia early enough. If a pet owner decides that their pet is ‘healthy’ and elects not to come to the vet for regular checkups until that lump is the size of a watermelon, or until that mast cell tumor has been sitting there for months, then there’s not much you can do about that. But we all do our best with what we’ve got. Different neoplasias have different biological behaviors, and some are sneakier than others. 

  • Mast Cell Tumors cannot be overestimated. They are always considered bad news until proven otherwise. They can pop up anywhere you have immune surveillance, including the spleen. they can also look like just about anything. Subcutaneous Mast Cell Tumors can look and feel exactly like a benign lipoma. The only way to know is a Fine Needle Aspirate (FNA).
  • Speaking of lipomas, don’t tell a client they are absolutely nothing to worry about. There is a tiny chance that it might be a liposarcoma or infiltrative lipoma. That’s really hard to pick on FNA alone, so monitoring is always advised. 
  • The further away from the trunk of the body, the more likely that lump is going to be a nasty little bugger. A 2mm tumor on the toe concerns me much more than a 5cm tumor on the body. 
  • Again, toe tumors are nasty until proven otherwise, especially so if there is lytic lesions in the bones. 
  • Melanomas are not always dark. You can get amelanotic melanomas with no pigment at all. 
  • Haemangiosarcomas/Hemangiosarcomas are most commonly found in spleen and liver, but they can show up anywhere you find blood vessels (almost everywhere). Watch out for intramuscular haemangiosarcomas. They present a bit like a haematoma or a seroma, but they are not. If you try to ‘drain’ these, they will bleed for weeks. They may not stop. Cut the whole thing out and hope for the best.
  • White cats develop squamous cell carcinomas of the face. They can also appear normal on the outside but have horrific oral tumors inside the mouth. Look, and don’t assume it’s just a flesh wound. 
  • If the tumor is annoying the pet or causing pain, cut it out even if it’s benign. This is especially true for eyelid lumps rubbing on the eyeball.
  • In male entire dogs, remember to check those testicles and the anus. Perianal adenocarcinomas are easy to miss.
  • Lymphoma is the most common cancer across all species and age groups. It breaks the rules. It can show up in any age, even juveniles, and anywhere. If it’s anywhere, assume it’s everywhere.
  • Osteosarcomas can present initially as mild lameness that is easy to confuse for arthritis. You only know with an xray. Also, while we learn that they are more common away from the elbow and towards the knee, this is only true in large dogs. Dogs of any size can get them, and in smaller dogs they are more common in the spine and skull. 
  • Multiple myeloma can also look like arthritis if a lesion is near a joint. 
  • Mammary gland tumors are malignant until proven otherwise. If they are present, spey that thing if she isn’t already. Doing so can potentially triple their life expectancy. 

Always look. More things are missed by not looking than not knowing.
