After everyone I've seen restarting their pottermore and getting weird houses I wish I could find the post I saw once on it but apparently some statistician did a study on the pottermore tests taking about 5000 of them and got equally sorted in to each house using the same answers on the quiz so apparently it doesn't matter what pottermore says you are because it just sorts people so that there are equal numbers of people in each house.

Definitely this.

There are ways to manipulate answers to get certain houses (which I did my very first time), but even that is flawed sometimes.

And I actually posted a Google Form a few months back when Pottermore was redone and people took the quiz again, but I never published the results.

What I actually found (in short) is that over 50% of people who were incorrectly sorted into Gryffindor.

So… yeah. Bogus.

Hill forts developed in the Late Bronze and Early Iron Age, roughly the start of the first millennium BC, and were in use by the ancient Britons until the Roman conquest. There are around 3,300 structures that can be classed as hillforts* within Britain.

Rising up from the Salisbury plains, the Iron Age Hillfort of Old Sarum is hard to miss. Site of the original Salisbury, this mighty Iron Age hill fort boasts far-reaching views across the Wiltshire countryside. With a history spanning over 5000 years, Old Sarum is one of the most enthralling and historically important sites in southern England.http://eht.to/JO

A mystery has puzzled historians since the 18th century, when a survey in the Scottish Highlands found an ancient hill fort with walls made from stones that had been melted together. Now scientists believe they have found the explanation for this odd formation: news.nationalgeographic.com/2016/03/160303-archaeology-history-forts-vitrification/?utm_source=Facebook&utm_medium=Social&utm_content=link_fb20160304news-vitrification&utm_campaign=Content&sf21931267=1

As the Bronze Age drew to a close, the people of Wales built dozens of these structures, but nobody really knows why: www.bbc.com/earth/story/20160518-why-prehistoric-welsh-people-built-so-many-forts-on-hills?ocid=fbbrt

*Various archaeologists operating in Britain have criticised the use of the term “hillfort” both because of its perceived connection to fortifications and warfare and because not all such sites were actually located on hills. Leslie Alcock believed that the term “enclosed places” was more accurate, whilst J. Forde-Johnston commented on his preference for “defensive enclosures”.

there’s nothing more exciting than laying awake in bed at night and contemplating an oc when you should be sleeping

especially when it takes you on a tangent to another forgotten oc… then another… and another… before you fall asleep from exhaustion hours later

I’m neck deep in oc hell where they’re all crying for attention

Niall looks at the letter then, watches the way gold lines shine under sunlight as he lightly, as if everything could disappear from underneath his fingertips in any second, touches carefully written words with his index finger.

(Or; Niall and Harry haven’t talked in almost nine months, and somewhere between coffees and endless thoughts the silence fades away.)

Amaudru’s Ideal Type is apparently dragons that are 5000% out of his league… because that relieves any pressure he’d otherwise feel about attempting a conversation or any other kind of communication of intent. 

like if he thinks/’knows’ that nothing is ever gonna happen between them, amaudru doesn’t bother doing anything about it, choosing to pine from afar instead. boy’s got so many self esteem issues
