so when i was 7 or 8 i’d “write letters to hermione granger” and set them out on the piano in the living room every night with my stuffed toy owl and every morning i’d have a letter from hermione back, sitting at the foot of my bed, and hermione and i corresponded like that for months and i’d just like to thank my mom for writing out a “letter from hermione” for me every single night

HP next gen: Muggleborn punk Slytherins, cunning and ambitious, self-respecting, loyal and kind; not letting anyone tell them they got sorted in the wrong House; making it their goal to change their House’s reputation, to make sure everyone is damn proud to be a Slytherin.
YES. MUGGLEBORN PUNK SLYTHERINS.

I think the fact that within Hogwarts there’s a lot of distaste for Slytherin and Hufflepuff shows some interesting insight into the wizarding community. Like, Hufflepuff represents hard work and fairness, right? But there’s the idea that Hufflepuffs are losers, sort of the proverbial nice guys who finish last. On the other hand, Slytherins, who represent cunning and ambition and personal drive, are seen as cutthroat and generally nasty and mean.
Ultimately, Hufflepuff and Slytherin are both rooted in philosophies on self betterment and achieving success in life, both in terms of being a better person and being a more powerful/wealthy person. The obvious question raised by Hogwarts student’s disapproval of both Slytherin and Hufflepuff is this: if it makes you a loser to succeed through hard work and fairness, but a cheat to succeed through cleverness and an attitude of doing whatever it takes to achieve your goals, how is someone in the wizarding world expected to gain power/wealth/status if they aren’t already born with it?

a moment of silence please because today is the day lily, james and harry potter crashed their car into a crocodile which ate harrys parents and then took out a knife and gave him a lightning bolt scar. This is such a tragic day for eveyone around the world

talk to me about unkind hufflepuffs; the ones who are so goddamn loyal that they’ll fuck your shit up. talk to me about hufflepuffs re-igniting s.p.e.w. and turning it into an agro-human (and nonhuman) rights group. they take the jokes about spew and spit in the faces of the pureblood gryffindors that say that’s just the way things are; they’re the ones that spend weeks chained outside the headmaster’s office, demanding wages for the kitchen houselves and for a centaurs’ caucus to help make the rules about students in the forest (including when they do care of magical creatures in the forest).
talk to me about hufflepuffs who see injustice and unkindness and want to re-shape the world with their own hands.
ok so what if Harry and Neville got into like this passive-aggressive lie-off regarding what a truly great man Severus Snape was like they got drunk and Harry was like ‘Snape though’ and Neville was like ‘I know right’ and Harry was like ‘what a… what a fantastic bastard. What a guy.’ and Neville was like ‘we should fuckin’ get him like, like… let’s have a funeral. A huge fucking fuck-off sized funeral with like, lilies, and, a marble coffin, and a big statue, an’ crying women, an’ all that shit’ and Harry got whiskey up his nose laughing so hard and he falls off his stool and just wheezes 'lillies'
and then during the funeral Neville and Harry like spend the whole time trying to give a better eulogy like they keep getting back up after each other are done to try and have another go at it but then they get schooled by Hermione being like ‘for fuck’s sake boys this is how it’s done’ and she goes up to the podium and just bursts into wild banshee hysterics and throws herself across the glistening marble casket, sobbing ‘oh, it should have been me, would to god that it were me, you stallion of a professor’ and all the reporters tear up a little and then go home to pen really fervid biopics on this bleakly noble and tragically overlooked hero of the revolution
anyway like eighteen years later Harry names his kid after Severus and sends an owl off to Neville like ‘your move, mate’ and Nevill pauses in the middle of polishing the giant marble statue of Snape tenderly cuddling an armfull of adoring woodland creatures that dominates like 2/3 of his office to cuss a lot and pour himself another drink

So as soon as I get home I take my clothes off and lock myself in my room
but today my asshole little brother decided to barge in and he saw my tattoo
(my dad doesn’t know about it) and he threatened to tell my dad
Being the makeup junkie that I am, I ran to my makeup trunk and pulled out 2 concealers, brown eye shadow, bb cream, and powder foundation and went to work
I came out and he was like “That was Sharpie? You’re so lame.”
Joke’s on you motherfucker.
