but what was your /least/ favorite book in high school? reblog and put it in the tags! start a fight with your friends!
ill start it off: mine was the bluest eye.
I’ve been thinking, if house points are mostly awarded for scholary achivements, then how come we have never seen the house full of smarts, ravenclaw ever win the house cup? by all means, they should be trouncing the others.
my theory is that ravenclaw outdoes all the other houses both in gaining, and in losing points. they rack up all the possible points for classwork, assignments AND extra school work. But they also lose a buttload in their other pursuits of knowledge:
– not returning books on time
– staying in the library after hours
– sneaking in the restricted section
– setting up secret potion labs for RESEARCH purposes
– throwing things off the tower FOR RESEARCH
– throwing things into the lake FOR RESEARCH
– taking small field trips into the forbidden forest to get samples and take notes on the wildlife
illegally tampering with muggle stuff FOR RESEARCH
– “borrowing” school equipment and ingredients for said research
– that pet kidnaping incident they never talk about that was sparked by a conversation about muggle schools “wait, you dissect frogs in class? WE SHOULD TOTALLY DO THAT TOO”
– combining random spells and testing them on the student body
– using said student body to test the secret potion lab’s latest creations
– referring to non-ravenclaw students as test subjects in the vicinity of disapproving teachers
what I’m saying is that while the other houses may preceive ravenclaw as a group of quiet bookworms, they are actually more troublesome than the other three combined. FOR RESEARCH.
There has to be some kind of documentation of this too. Everything is nonsense unless you write it down; then it’s science
i demand a series of books with stories of this….research
Me: Sees a male-female close friendship that never turns into romance and is instead a platonic relationship where both of them support and care for one another without any expectation for anything else
Me: Starts applauding while tears of joy roll down my face unheeded
me; r u an angel because you-
girl in the bar: *6 wings unfolding from her back as her body morphs into a conglomeration of lion’s heads covered in burning eyes* you will forget all you have seen *painless white holy fire sweeps across the bar, when the blinding light fades no one remembers a thing and she is gone*
People have written a lot of touchy-feely pieces on this subject but I thought I’d get right to the heart of the matter
This is 1000% more motivating than every preachy “real writers write every day” post on all of Tumblr.
I call this the “two cakes” rule and remind myself of it when I start comparing myself to other people.
Might be a thing to keep in mind for myself xD
I have to keep this in mind, as a way of life.
this is EXACTLY what it’s like to get art of yourself or a character.
elementalist: on the outside you may seem like a kind and knowledgeable player but secretly you are dead inside
necromancer: never left your goth phase
mesmer: you either hate yourself or you hate everyone around you, but probably both
ranger: youre just here to have a good fun time and you tend to get in trouble for tabbing out to tumblr while youre waiting for the other members in a dungeon
thief: same as mesmer but you wanted to be able to hate everyone while watching netflix in another window
engineer: you’ve long stopped giving a rats ass about what others think of you and have given up on skill rotations and just resigned to bashing your face on the keyboard at this point
warrior: you’re a dirty elitist, enjoy instant gratification, or both. the real question is whether you’re in denial about it or not
guardian: you probably highly value helping others and feeling useful but not at the expense of having to put in a lot of effort
IT’S BACK. SOMEONE DO ONE FOR REVENANT AND ALTAR THE ONES HERE (AS NEEDED) FOR ELITE SPECS
it’s too soon after HoT and the playerbases for revenant and herald don’t have a discernible personality since EVERYONE is playing them. also this is only the snarky version of the post above and the kind one is floating around somewhere but
i can tell you that the elite specs in the long run will be nearly the exact same, except with the following fairly neutral-tone additions:
tempest: you love the warhorn fart noises and tempest is just really fucking funny to you. i agree
reaper: you probably mained necro and honestly i don’t really have a comment here, look, i hope you’re having fun with that greatsword because you’ve suffered enough and deserve to have nice things now
chronomancer: i don’t really know how chronomancer plays but my head kind of hurts trying to figure out mesmer skills and chronomancer doesn’t make that better so i’m just gonna assume you’re really dedicated to mesmer here and you scare me just a little bit
druid: all of the druids i met just like to have fun honestly you probably just love helping people and running around with your fancy tree stick and i’m happy for you
daredevil: all of the daredevil players i’ve met are really still their same casual-edgelord i-love-ganking-people-in-eotm fun but purposefully slightly assholey selves tbh. good for yall for maintaining your brand
scrapper: iM A FUCKIGN SCRAPPER MAIN AND I WILL TELL YOU THAT WHAT SCRAPPER SAYS ABOUT US IS THAT WE ARE EXHAUSTED BUT ELATED AND HAVING THE TIME OF OUR LIVES AFTER KILLING OUR WRISTS TRYING TO USE EXCLUSIVELY GRENADE ENGI BUILDS FOR LIKE THREE YEARS. LET US LIVE
berserker: the exact same as warrior was before but after chugging a bunch of red bull
dragonhunter: dragonhunters seem to be split 50/50 between meta-y players who are actually enjoying the new builds, and people who aren’t meta at all but dragonhunter has this sort of oddly anime-esque ~graceful arrow-slinging guardian of light and justice and fire!!!~ appeal and they’re here for that. usually yall are both simultaneously
