So a close friend had an asthma attack yesterday and is in the hospital until at least tomorrow. I’m visiting her in a couple hours, and I wanna do my best to cheer her up, or at least make her stay slightly less horrible.

Have any of you spent multiple days in a hospital, and if so, do you have any tips on things I could bring (food, deck of cards, etc.) that would make her stay just a tiny bit easier? Anything someone did for you or you wish they’d have done for you that might help?

So I’m being the TARDIS for Halloween. The boyfriend is gonna be Nine. This is a thing that’s happening.

People who hate Harry Potter missed the a giant part of the story. Despite being abused by his aunt, uncle and cousin his whole life Harry was kind, compassionate, loyal, protective and honest. He defended those who needed it and stood up to those who deserved it. He didn’t become bitter or hateful. And he spent his life trying to protect others. You can’t hate him because people chose to stand by him even if it meant they’d die. He didn’t want that, he wanted everyone to live even if it meant he couldn’t anymore.

It’s because he suffered PTSD in book 5 and was mistaken for a whinny angsty teen.

PTSD with a side of “Help, my parents’ murderer is attached to my soul.”

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? 

It’s also worth noting that in a world where magic can do your work for you, Hufflepuffs are scoffed at for being willing to work at all, and Slytherins are shunned for taking advantage of magic to it’s fullest.

I think it comes down to glory. Gryffindors attain it through heroic deeds, Ravenclaws by bettering the world through clever and creative solutions. Slytherins, on the other hand, can be two-faced and underhanded. While brawn and brains are considered opposite yet acceptable means to achieve glory, cheating to steal someone else’s for yourself is not (though Slytherins might simply call it being resourceful). Hufflepuffs, meanwhile, rarely seek glory at all, because they know it’s both fragile and superficial. There’s nothing glorious about hard work, patience, or loyalty, but these are traits aimed at building something that will stand the test of time.

Ok, no, Slytherin does not equate two-faced and underhanded. Slytherin does NOT equate cheating and stealing. Determination, cunning, cleverness, resourcefulness, and a sense of self preservation. I’m sorry, but I’m one of those people who likes to LIVE and be unscathed. You have to be quick on your feet for a lot of that! All of these qualities are the very things that Harry Potter also had, in SPADES, and yet he was applauded and praised for it because he was a Gryffindor. When a Slytherin does it, it’s automatically deceitful, two faced, or cheating. Stop the Slytherin hate, and this is coming from a Ravenclaw.

I said Slytherins “can be”, not are. We’re dealing with perceptions here. I’m not saying “Don’t respect Slytherin.” I’m examining why it’s not respected. And it simply can’t be denied Slytherin has a bad rap due to many of its members being two-faced and underhanded (i.e. nearly all the Death Eaters), but it shouldn’t be forgotten Snape used these exact traits to his advantage to become an amazing double-agent while Narcissa used them to protect her family.

In no way would I claim these traits are unique to those in Slytherin house. Besides Voldemort, the first two people who tried to put Harry permanently out of commission (Quirrell and Lockhart) were both Ravenclaws and Peter Pettigrew was about as two-faced as it gets.
