This was a weird day. My face started splitting open and another universe was trying to get through. Thankfully the Doctor came and saved me. Barely even a scar now!
As you can see, if finally given in and watched Doctor Who. And surprise, surprise, I love it! So I’ve added the Tardis (of course) a bunch of stars and galaxy stuff and then the “crack in the wall” on my forehead. 

I love talented people!

Reblog this if you are not against transgender males or females. So I can write down everybodys username and give it to my nonsupportive parents the day I leave for college.

OKAY FOLKS HERE’S HOW IT IS.

I’m moving in the middle of august, and as I try to sort out my stuff I have come to the realization that I kind of have a lot of fucking yarn.  I have more yarn than I will ever knit anything with.  I need to get rid of it but I can’t bear to just throw it out - it has to go to loving homes!  So here’s the deal: reblog this post before July 24th and YOU CAN WIN YOURSELF SOME YARN!  There’s everything from koigu to kroy socks!

RULES:

  • Only reblog once, please - it only shows up once in the list of notes and that’s what I’ll be picking the winners from.
  • I’ll ship to anywhere in North America
  • Please don’t request a particular hank or skein.  Random winners get random yarn.
  • There will be at least ten winners, probably more as I continue to find yarn secreted in random corners of my place.
  • Matching hanks will go to the same person.
  • Some of the hanks and balls are no longer very hanky or ball-ish because they’ve been in a hamper in my closet for a long time.
  • CAVEAT VICTOR: a lot of this shit has no lables!  I don’t know what it’s made of or how to wash it!

GOOD LUCK!

The Problem of Slytherin

bronzedragon:

Or, “the negative treatment of Slytherin House in canon.” 

To me, “the Problem of Slytherin” (which I’ve nicknamed based on the infamous “Problem of Susan” from CS Lewis’s Narnia) is one of the major flaws of the series. Not as bad as my issues with DH, certainly, but something that detracts from the series as a whole. 

Again, this is a somewhat unpopular opinion: there are plenty of people who feel that the portrayal of Slytherin was fine as-is, many who argue that it was inevitable because of the books’ first-person Gryffindor-centric POV, and some people who believe that an ambition-oriented House is more likely to produce evil people than one that values intelligence/wit, hard work/patience, or bravery/fame, particularly given Salazar Slytherin’s penchant for conflating greatness and blood purity, making a House that seems pre-made for prejudice.* 

*I think that Slytherin’s orientation on blood-purity could have been written as something that was a rational response to his historical period, but I don’t think that JKR intends it to be viewed that way. If mass persecutions were occurring and lots of wizards were dying, then you could make a case for hiding/not accepting Muggle-borns - but again, this is something that’s more grounds for an AU fic based on what we know of Rowling’s Wizarding history, in which witch-hunting/problems didn’t get to be significant until three to four centuries after the Founders’ era, and in which the dangers weren’t that significant in any case. (Yes, that’s no consolation to Nearly Headless Nick, but we’re led to believe that persecutions weren’t that terrible a danger in the great scheme of things. In canon, Salazar Slytherin is not Wizarding Magneto, who believes that wizards need to create a wholly separate society of their own because the real world has given them concrete evidence they’ll never be accepted otherwise - although, again, I do believe that Salazar Slytherin-as-Wizard-Magneto, a man with some valid points but extreme views and methods, could successfully exist in fanfic.)

But, even given the idea that Slytherin held an indefensible, reactionary opinion for his own time, I believe that the books could have - and should have - written Slytherin differently. Because, as it is, there is a huge problem with the general portrayal of Slytherin characters, and, moreover, with the idea of House Unity and that entire theme, which became so important in OotP.

This is long, so I’m placing it behind a cut.
