Headcanon that: MC gets stuck in an elevator with the RFA boys & she suddenly has a panic attack! I read somewhere that holding your breath can stop a panic attack and *nudge nudge* some people hold their breaths when they get kissed by surprise hihihihi

This is so cute!!

  • The elevator stopped moving
    • “Yoosung what did you do?!”
    • “I don’t know, MC it’s just stopped moving what the heck?!”
  • You both ran over and started pushing the buttons like mad
    • “Keep going Yoosung we have to get out of here!!!”
  • Still nothing

◉ Zen

  • He pushed the button once again
    • “What the hell? it’s not working?” Zen noted

    • “I think this stupid thing is broken,” Saeyoung said casually
    • “Very funny. Press the damn button already,” you huffed
    • “I’m serious. It doesn’t work,” he slammed the buttons with his hand and then kicked the wall lightly
    • “Saeyoung. I swear. If this is another prank I’m going to kill you,” your voice was stern but quivering
    • “MC, I swear. This isn’t a prank, I can’t get it to go.”

    • “No I’m not,” he stuck his tongue out at you
  • He grabbed your hand into his
    • “Come on, let’s get out of here before this old piece of crap breaks down again”

honestly i think the reason as to why percy is so hard to place in one hogwarts house is because of the fact that he displays such strong qualities that overlap between the houses. if we look at the qualities that percy possesses compared to the characteristics stated in the sorting hat’s song, he embodies almost all of them. 

foremost, in the gryffindor verse it says that gryffindors are brave at heart, and are daring, have great nerve, and are chivalrous. We have seen throughout many books that he is indeed brave and daring, and he does have nerves of steel at some points (ex, jumping off the st. louis arch and falling with annabeth into tartarus). He also shows great acts of chivalry & this aspect is also seen throughout other parts of his personality

as for the hufflepuff verse, it says that members of the house are just and loyal, as well as being patient and unafraid of toil. clearly, percy displays a lot of loyalty throughout the books, whether it be for annabeth or his mom or for his camp. he is also not afraid of fighting anyone or anything in order to protect those he is loyal to.

in the ravenclaw verse it is less obvious that percy shares some similarities to that house (seeing as it talks about having a ready mind, having a lot of wit & will to learn) however, percy does display these qualities throughout both series, as he wants to learn any different things (ex. learning how to defeat kronos, learning how to unite both the greeks and romans, learning how to change the way he perceives the world). also he shows how witty he is through both his sense of humor and how fast his mind works in different situations (mostly fights, etc)

now the slytherin verse talks mostly about finding real friends, and calls slytherins cunning and ambitious. percy obviously cares a lot about finding his real friends (and he finds them in annabeth, grover, the seven (eventually), etc) so that’s a pretty obvious one. however percy is exceptionally cunning, whether it be in battle or just everyday life. correct me if im wrong, but im pretty sure annabeth in the books has said how intelligent percy is (even though he comes off as stubborn or oblivious at times)

in all honestly im not sure what kind of conclusion i was trying to make by writing all of this out, but the one i have come to is that all of these characteristics, although make him hard to classify in one house, show that percy is an exceptionally strong protagonist that exhibits powerful qualities that make him a hero.

Therefore, i am concluding that this whole sorting thing is kind of backwards because percy doesn’t really fit in any of the houses because he has shown that he belongs in all of them

Just one day left of our first real family vacation.

(despite the gif) I am having the best time of my life on this road trip with my family.

We left Wisconsin last Thursday, and have been to

Kansas City
Dallas
Houston
New Orleans
Pass Christian, Mississippi
Baton Rouge
Hot Springs, Arkansas

And tomorrow we’ll see the St. Louis arch, and be off to home.

This has been an amazing experience.

Feeling so blessed.

50 Years Ago: A Look Back at 1965

“A half-century ago, the war in Vietnam was escalating, the space race was in full swing, the Rolling Stones were on a world tour, the bravery of those who marched to Selma led to the passage of the Voting Rights Act, and the St. Louis Arch was completed. The United States occupied the Dominican Republic, Malcolm X was assassinated, NASA’s Mariner 4 flew by Mars, race riots erupted in Watts, California, and Muhammad Ali defeated Sonny Liston. Let me take you 50 years into the past now, for a photographic look back at the year 1965.”

HEY "ARCH"atlas WHY DON'T YOU SHOW US YOUR FAVORITE ARCHES ACCOMPANIED WITH EXPLANATIONS AS TO WHY THEY'RE THE BEST OF THE BEST?

ARCHatlas is an abbreviation of ARCHITECTURE atlas which was the original vision for this blog (not sure if that has been accomplished). Each of them built to commemorate a important person or an significant event in history, each of them a beloved icon of their country. No explanation needed of why they are the best of the best.
