the supply cup

Ravenclaw Headcanons
  • There’s a keurig (donated by a muggleborn, of course) in the common room with a magically self-replenishing supply of every k-cup flavor you can imagine because caffeine makes up 85% of a Ravenclaw’s blood
  • Muggleborns in other houses referring to their Ravenclaw friend as the spock of the friend group
  • Every Saturday night someone offers up their netflix and a random documentary/science special/history special gets projected on a sheet hung up on the wall of the common room
  • There’s a bulletin board with reminders to drink water, take stretch breaks, and eat at regular intervals
  • Ravenclaws using pens because fuck continuously dipping my quill i need to get these thoughts onto paper immediately and i don’t have time for that bullshit
  • Ravenclaws who run studyblrs
  • Ravenclaws organising study groups and group chats for homework help
  • Ravenclaws and Hufflepuffs teaching Slytherins and Gryffindors about self care because some of them perceive struggling with depression/anxiety/mental illness as being weak but those Hufflepuffs and Ravenclaws will have none of it and want their friends to be their happiest, healthiest, and best selves
  • new paintings/sculptures/art by Ravenclaws being featured throughout the common room every month so everyone can see how creative and wonderful their housemates are
  • Ravenclaws getting really existential/philosophical and their friends from other houses just going “what the fuck man i just wanna play exploding snap with you and now i feel like a speck of dust floating in the void”
  • Ravenclaws getting really heated when someone says they don’t believe in climate change/evolution or that they’re not a feminist or that they think reverse racism is real and their friends have to drag them back while they’re hissing, “ hhhhHHHH i haVE A FUCKING POWER POINT FOR THIS LET ME EDUCATE THIS THICK MOTHERFUCKER”
  • Ravenclaws who experience some kind of privilege their friend does not and absolutely SEETHING when they’re out with their best mate and someone says/does something discriminatory against said perfect angel best friend who is way cooler than your racist/homophobic/sexist/ableist/bigoted ass.
  • what do you mean not every episode of bill nye the science guy is on netflix?????
  • Ravenclaws who r total sluts for art
  • Ravenclaws who r total sluts for history
  • Ravenclaws who r total sluts for art history
  • Ravenclaws who are literally always ready to fight someone 25/8 but don’t actually because literally when has violence ever resulted in a positive outcome for all parties involved?? that’s right Patricia, never.
  • Ravenclaws going on day trips/adventures with their friends and planning out an itinerary because there’s so much to see and yes we do need to visit this obscure museum of bricks because it seems fascinating okay
  • Ravenclaws watching modern TV shows/movies about witches/wizards/magical beings and compiling a list of every factual inaccuracy they come across, complete with time stamps, external sources, and citations
  • instead of doing their fucking homework like they know they fucking should be
  • Ravenclaws being open to learning about new friends they make who have different political/socio-economical/religious/cultural backgrounds than them because it’s fascinating and they want to make sure they’re as aware and accepting of the diversity in the world as possible

ravenclaws, man.

as always, feel free to reblog and add your own! I hope you all enjoy!

“Happy Valentine’s Day, Iggy!” Gladiolus handed him the silly card along with a large box of Ebony coffee cans. “Love ya,” he said lovingly, placing a quick, yet sweet kiss on the other male’s lips.

“Oh, darling.” Ignis blushed and smiled. Then he returned the kiss before pulling out his own silly card and a large supply of Cup Noodles. “And I love you.”

They finished the Birthday song as they placed the Twinkie in front of you, small candle stuck deep into the creamy, fluffy cake.

“Where in the world did you find a Twinkie?!” you laughed, both astonished and ecstatic. This showed how much the group cared about you. Even after all the bad things that have went down, they still put aside time to celebrate your birthday.

“Glenn found it when he and Daryl went out on a supply run,” Rick explained, cupping Glenn’s shoulder with a grand smile. Glenn blushed a bit. Taking the credit for things wasn’t really his thing.

“It’s nothing…” Glenn cleared his throat.

“It’s everything!” you exclaimed, smiling happily at him. “Thank you.”

“Make a wish,” Carol wrapped an arm around you. “Blow out the candle.”

You closed your eyes tightly. You thought you must look like a complete loser, but you didn’t care, at the moment. You made a wish, the same thing you’d been wishing for months- I wish things would get better -and then you blew out the candle.

The group applauded and cheered, each taking a turn to hug you or pat you on the back, besides Daryl, who was doing what he usually did- standing in a corner and staring.

Having a party in a prison once overrun by Walkers wasn’t something you’d expected, but you couldn’t have picked better company.

“How about you taste that Twinkie?” Maggie grinned, the others voicing their agreement. You glanced at the small cake, knowing how much you wanted it, but knowing how bad you would feel if you didn’t share.

“How about we all have some?” you suggested, breaking it into pieces as the others protested. “I insist,” you added, easily dividing the Twinkie into small pieces. You gave one to each of your friends with a brilliant grin. Carl looked so overjoyed, you thought his face must hurt.

You came to Daryl last, two pieces of cake left in your hands- one for him and one for you.

“And last but not least,” you held out the golden, cream-filled cake to him. Daryl shook his head, pushing your hand back.

“It’s for you,” he mumbled, eyes averted from you and your bright grin.

“Take it, please?” you held your hand back out, insistent. “It means a lot to me to share this with everyone. Including you.”

Daryl glanced at you, at the Twinkie, around the room, and then back with narrowed eyes, thinking this through. Ultimately, he took the cake, throwing it into his mouth as you did the same.

“Thanks,” he muttered as he swallowed, and you thought you saw a tiny smile.

“Thank you,” you replied, standing in front of him with a shy smile. You hadn’t really talked to Daryl. He always seemed hostile and stand-offish towards you. Rick always said that’s just how he was, but you thought it might be different.

“Oh, and,” You weren’t sure what he was doing at first, but when he leaned down and kissed you softly on the cheek, your skin grew hot and red. You could tell he was nervous as he pulled away, leaning up against the wall, averting his eyes again. “Happy Birthday.”

Author’s Note: I know I’m supposed to be finishing the requests, and I will, but I’ve been binging The Walking Dead, and Daryl is a c o m p l e t e babe, and I had to write something about him, I’m s o r r y.

STOP THE POTATO HATE 2016

Getting real tired of people hating on potatoes, calling them junk food, and completely ignoring that they are one of the more nutritionally dense foods out there (not to mention cheap, ubiquitous, incredibly easy to cook, and extremely versatile in their preparations). 

Even a small portion, say 2 cups prepared, supplies you with 9g/20% of the recommended daily value of protein, 72g of carbs, and zero grams of fat. They’re naturally high in fiber and low in sugars.  They are chock-full of an array of B vitamins: 

18% RDV of B1

12% RDV of B2

30% RDV of B3

26% RDV of B5

64% RDV of B6

Plus, 24% folate, 44% vitamin C, and small amounts of vitamin A and K (both fat soluble vitamins).

In terms of minerals, potatoes are rich in copper (supplying 44% of the RDV), 20% RDV of iron, 24% RDV of magnesium, 38% RDV of manganese, 34% RDV of phosphorus, and a whopping 52% RDV of potassium. 

If that’s not a health food, then I’m not sure what is. Potatoes have gotten such a bad rep because people love to smother them with butter, cheese, and other high-fat, unhealthy animal products, or they deep-fry them in oils that become denatured at such a high heat. Ditch the nasty fats and potatoes are an amazing, highly nutritious food that should be a staple in your diet!
