what if harry had been sorted into slytherin though

  • sarcastic bastard and no need to pretend otherwise
  • learning the names of people outside your immediate circle of friends??? please
  • usually overdramatic, sometimes morally grey
  • sirius having to deal with the fact that his godson is a slytherin. a slytherin. james potter’s son is in slytherin. remus can you believe this
  • bezzies-by-circumstance with draco malfoy with all the highlights including a) earth-shattering fights, b) someone brazen enough to curb draco’s nastiness, and c) someone unimpressed enough to tell harry to get a fucking grip and stop being so self-righteous all the time potter you frilly whingebag
  • (and a friendship with harry/draco reluctantly getting roped into his cause could have changed a whole buncha shit for the malfoys and all that Malfoy Joins the Order With Snape fic of ‘03-‘05 could have come true)
  • speaking of, a head of house/student relationship with snape might have saved his character from being entirely reprehensible
  • challenging the wizarding public’s views of slytherin house by pitting their ridiculous prejudices against their blind all-consuming love for/faith in harry
  • quirrell was a ravenclaw and wormtail was a gryffindor [insert harry’s sarcastic one-liner about all the witches and wizards who went bad being in slytherin here]
  • jkr putting her money where her mouth is re: “we’ve all got both light and dark inside us, it’s our choices who make us who we truly are” by putting the boy who lived and eventual saviour of the wizarding world in the ~evil house~
  • or even better she could have established slytherin as the ~evil house~ and then dismantled that completely by showing harry surrounded by loving, caring people forced to choose between standing beside their friend harry or supporting voldemort’s/their parents’ cause
  • harry’s group of friends torn in two by their parents’ ideology and their loyalty to harry and what they’ve seen to be true while sharing a home with hundreds of halfbloods and muggleborns
  • and then members of slytherin house fighting tooth and nail against the people who raised them because harry potter just has that effect on people
  • all resulting in an eventual about-face in people’s attitudes towards slytherins
  • and when harry has kids they’re proud at the thought of being sorted into slytherin house because their dad was a slytherin and he saved the fucking world

i never knew i needed this but i need this

I never liked the idea of Slytherin!Harry, but now I really really want it.

I MADE A LITERARY MAGAZINE

LOOK IT’S A REAL THING NOW

trendgraphy:

Universal Principles of Design100 Ways to Enhance Usability, Influence Perception, Increase Appeal, Make Better Design Decisions, and Teach Through Design.
Whether a marketing campaign or a museum exhibit, a video game or a complex control system, the design we see is the culmination of many concepts and practices brought together from a variety of disciplines. Because no one can be an expert on everything, designers have always had to scramble to find the information and know-how required to make a design work—until now.
Universal Principles of Design, Revised and Updated is a comprehensive, cross-disciplinary encyclopedia of design. Richly illustrated and easy to navigate, it pairs clear explanations of every design concept with visual examples of the concepts applied in practice. From the “80/20” rule to chunking, from baby-face bias to Occam’s razor, and from self-similarity to storytelling, every major design concept is defined and illustrated for readers to expand their knowledge.
This landmark reference will become the standard for designers, engineers, architects, and students who seek to broaden and improve their design expertise.

After The Last Battle, almost every student began to dread the ride to Hogwarts from the train. Not because they weren’t looking forward to returning, although that was true for some.But because of the carriages, which they had thought for so long were horseless. Now they knew better. And every horse was a reminder of why they knew better. It wasn’t uncommon for students to squeeze their eyes shut once they’d entered, sit in stoney silence with their hands curled into fists on their laps as they waited for the ride to be over. They knew of course, what they had been through - what they had seen. But none of them appreciated the reminder.
But eventually, there comes the year where almost every student in Hogwarts thinks that the carriages are horseless. They walk the roads and do not flinch away from leathery wings or back away, white-faced, from skeletal bodies. They just walk to their carriages and get in, chattering all the while about the wonders of magic. Although of course some muggleborns like to point out that carriages that can run themselves aren’t exactly new inventions and hasn’t anyone at Hogwarts heard of a bus?
Life goes on.

what if like bucky's therapist encourages him to pick up a hobby that has absolutely nothing to do with espionage etc? like embroidery or cross-stitch or macrame? and he just leaves these intricate pieces of embroidery all over the avengers tower? and then tony interprets bucky's actions as like a serious cry for help and freaks out when he finds a macrame iron man on top of his dresser? by Anonymous

waldorph:

They all think that it’s a new hobby, and Steve lets them. But Bucky’s been able to do a mean cross-stitch since before Steve met him, said he learned it from his mother, and then it was something to bring in extra money, and then it’d been applied to sewing the rest of the Howlers up—

So Steve just buys threads and needles and listens to Bucky bitch about synthetics—Steve swears Bucky learns the internet just to buy his precious thread, and if Bucky thinks Steve isn’t going to make fun of him for that from here to kingdom come he’s got another thing coming. 

And then Clint shows Bucky something from Etsy, and all Steve knows is he’s got a pillow that says FUCK YOU and a hand towel that says PUNK and somehow Dum-E ended up with a bib that says SMARTEST ONE IN THE ROOM that seems to have Tony torn between being infuriated and deeply, deeply amused.

"You can sell those," Clint points out helpfully one day, and then there’s a goddamn Etsy shop full of beautiful, delicately-done, incredibly profane cross-stitch.

"So you can start paying rent now," Steve says when Bucky crows about how much it’s making (it’s a lot. It’s way more than it should be).

Bucky turns wide, wounded eyes on him. “But—I thought you said not to worry about it.”

"Oh Christ," Steve mutters.

"I thought you said that while I was in recovery—"

"Buck."

"—that I shouldn’t worry, that I should focus on my hobbies and getting better and—"

"Please stop, Sam is going to walk in the door and think I’m actually re-traumatizing you."

"—this is is making me happy.”

"Fine!" Steve groans, throwing his hands up. "I’ll just keep you in the manner to which you’ve become accustomed, okay?"

"Yeah, that’d be great," Bucky says easily, and if he thinks Steve misses the sly smile he shoots at Natasha (who is clearly in the doorway only to observe how incredibly whipped Steve is), well. He’s a moron.

i imagine both steve and bucky like to come up with different ways to poke fun at sam every time they pass him during jogging

because they are shitheads

(the first one is a print you can get here)

latining:

how come nobody talks about how much sense trans* Steve makes? he’s already falsified how much of his form to get into the army? like he is really going to feel guilt checking the M box, WHICH IS MORE TRUE THAN HIS MEDICAL HISTORY

and then Erskine comes and picks him out for his Make You A Man project

like come on we covered metaphors in seventh grade
