Hogwarts started doing a student exchange program between the houses. Once a year, four unfortunate students would be selected and then placed in one of the other three houses for two weeks to “experience new things and better understand your fellow students.” Seriously, imagine how much fun we can have with this headcanon.
“Why is it always so dark in your guys’ dorms all the time? And p-please get that snake away from me.”
“Do Gryffindors have to be so loud ALL THE TIME? I’m trying to study!”
“I mean I sneeze and I get bombarded with two dozen ‘bless you’s! And if one more person tries to give me another passionate hug or asks me if there’s anything I want to talk about, I’m going to hex someone!”
“I DON’T KNOW WHERE VANISHED OBJECTS GO, I JUST WANT INTO MY BLOODY ROOM!”
best part, you could tell which houses the persno came from and which house they were talking to.
this is everything
okay but imagine a pureblooded slytherin raised in a rather old fashioned (rascist) family that judges their every move
imagine them getting sent to hufflepuff
imagine them getting a letter from home that nearly makes them cry, except they’ve been taught not to cry in front of others
now imagine, for the first time ever, someone asking them if they were alright
imagine a pureblooded slytherin honestly considering transferring to hufflepuff
circumhorizontal arcs photographed by (click pic) david england, andy cripe, del zane, todd sackmann and brandon rios. this atmospheric phenomenon, otherwise known as a fire rainbow, is created when light from a sun that is at least 58 degrees above the horizon passes through the hexagonal ice crystals that form cirrus clouds which, because of quick cloud formation, have become horizontally aligned.

"I’ve grown up my whole life playing second-fiddle to the pretty girl. And it took a really long time for me to realize that it’s okay to be who I am, and that in somebody’s eyes, I might be the pretty girl. Coming to terms with the amount of space I take up in the world, which is also like a feminist conceit too, because we’re taught from birth to shrink ourselves. Erasing fine lines and wrinkles. Shrinking two sizes. Making varicose veins disappear. It’s like this language that wants women to not be visible.” - Meredith Graves
I want to quote this entire video. This is perfect; she is the most beautiful speaker.
This is incredible and SO SO important and has actually made me feel better about certain things lately, particularly with what she said about being taken seriously and misogynistic comments from men on the internet.
I’ve come to the conclusion that Sam and Dean would take one look at Night Vale and burn it to the ground, civilians be damned.
i’ve come to the conclusion sam and dean would drive into night vale and spontaneously combust from being exposed to sexual and racial diversity and women who don’t die within a week
I want a movie about a kid who just so happens to be born a Classic Gothic Hero, but in modern day. His name would be like Byron Dangerfield or something.
Whenever he has EMOTIONS, there are claps of thunder and lightning. Every time he leans against a piece of furniture, it turns out to open a secret passageway leading to some dark secret, until eventually he’s just like “REALLY, GUYS?” All bad dreams are prophetic, even if it’s just that Starbucks will be out of pumpkin spice syrup the next day. Every girl he talks to swoons a lot and has a tyrannical heavy-browed father who are all played by the same actor. Ravens flock around him.
There are inexplicably paintings with moving eyes and moving suits of armor everywhere he goes, even McDonalds. Every time he moves to a new apartment, there is ALWAYS a screaming woman chained up in the room above his, and she invariably sets the place on fire. He’s so over it.
