These Pottermore stats literally go against every house stereotype ever

 Gryffindor chivalry tends towards the cliquish and protective, and to most of them the highest expression of bravery is to fight for what’s right and to stick up for ones’ friends and family—all else is empty thrill-seeking. Living up to the ideals of daring and boldness gives them the courage to seek out new friends anywhere they go, and approach strangers fearlessly. 
Hufflepuffs are ‘dilligent and steadfast’—i.e, tenacious bastards who won’t ever back down from a challenge. They won’t stop until the job is done, and if the job is beating you hollow, god help you. 
Ravenclaws don’t just value knowledge, they delight in the pursuit of it, and love to search things out. They’re oriented around seeking and collecting behaviors, and get a rush from the challenges of uncovering what’s hidden. Hide something from a Ravenclaw and watch them tear a tower apart brick by brick to get at it. 
Slytherins are very results-oriented, (‘these cunning folk use any means to achieve their ends’) and so giving gifts— literal tokens of esteem, attaching an objective value to your regard— just makes sense to them as a way to display their sincerity. Empty statements and trite declarations don’t impress Slytherins, jaded as they are to lies and glib politicking— if you mean what you say, you’ll be expected prove it, like they do.

There are songs that I listen too and I can feel my body burn from wanting to dance, and I can half feel the movement

only I know I can’t. I can’t move like that I never could

and I never will. It’s like phantom limb for action. And I feel like a fucking pretentious whiner for saying that, so no one has to say it.

This is exactly how I feel! Even when I took a zumba class I felt like an elephant trying to tapdance on eggshells.

White: I have no memory of this.

Black: Lucky.

Gray: Eh, I’ve had weirder. Definitely in the top five, though.

LOOK WHAT I DID

Happy birthday Mod!

I have recently discovered that there are things that are not reading and internet and watching tv shows, and now I am slowly figuring out how to do them. It helps a little!

I am suddenly struck by the idea that almost any part of life could be improved by the incorporation of sock puppets.

No don’t! They’re creepy and stare at you with button eyes and when you try to make them talk they take on a life of their own.

Excuse you, but we find that highly offensive.

Madame, I never did behold such clear, luscious eyes on a puppet before.

Can you not mack on Curlie’s hand when I’m right here

SILENCE BONEBAG! FETCH MY HAT SO I MAY WOO THE LADY IN STYLE!

….So, hypothetically, if someone had, say, immediately thrown away a pair of luscious paper eyes after taking a photograph I bet they would be really embarrassed right now.

HUSH, I AM HAVING A MOMENT WITH THE GENTLESOCK.

#no more sock puppets #do you know how hard it is #to make a hand look chagrined

Actually, I’m starting to see what you meant at the beginning.

I think I let this get out of hand.

Once more for the pun. XD

do you ever get in those moods where you don’t feel like reading and you don’t feel like being on the internet and you don’t feel like watching a show and you don’t feel like sleeping and you don’t feel like existing in general

BUT YOU WANT TO DO SOMETHING.

so you’re telling me there’s an alien who regenerates into a completely random form, that he cannot control or determine himself, and who understandably could take millions of different appearances, but who all 13 times just turned into a different skinny white guy

image

wait, why are all the regenerations ofthe doctor consitered skinny, but my body type is considered fat? Some of them were stocky at least.

But yeah, totaly white. Except for 4 who looked a little ethnically jewish at the edges.

What annoys me is that after one regeneration he thought he was a girl and started freaking out, which

1. proves that Time Lords can change gender when they regenerate, and

2. is really really stupid, because if you can change gender then why are  you freaking out over it like it’s a terrible thing to happen.

i don’t even like babies. even when i want one, i know i won’t like it, and i almost never even want one! it’s just for three or four days out of my regular hormone cycle i am just randomly obsessed with the hypothetical that i might somehow obtain a baby. my baby fantasies always end with ‘and then i am fucking miserable and poor and probably the kid gets really fucked up, how am i supposed to be a parent?’

then, immediately after i have satisfyingly concluded that i should not ever have a baby, the fantasy restarts with ‘yes, but what if you got a baby. like, you could just go to the hospital and see who was having a baby they didn’t want, and then you’d have a baby. it’d be that easy. you could get a baby. hell, you could probably just put an add out on craigslist, tons of people don’t want babies. i mean like, people are always putting their babies in dumpsters—maybe you could check some dumpsters? i bet you could find one. and then you’d have a baby.’

the thing is, i don’t think my uterus has quite figured out what part it itself is supposed to play in this whole baby-procuring process.  

#babies
#hormones
#i actually kind of worry that one day i will have a baby
#and a month after delivery my uterus will say
#'what if you had TWO babies'
