reasons why halloween is the best holiday:

  1. you are not obliged to visit your relatives
  2. you are not obliged to get gifts for anyone
  3. people will give you candy for absolutely no reason other than halloween
  4. its the only day when its socially acceptable to go out in public dressed like a penguin



but if you close your eyes, does it almost feel like your favorite character isn’t dead

#how am I gonna be an optimist about this {x}






Like tbh intelligence, cleverness, wit, resourcefulness, wisdom, cunning are all arguably fundamentally the same thing applied differently on a practical level and it terms of purposes or anyway very similar and in the same category, (which we could call intelligence) it’s not in those traits that lie the fundamental differences between slytherin and ravenclaw

ravenclaws and slytherins both have ‘intelligence’, it’s a question of originality, individuality, creativity and acceptance vs power, self-preservation, traditionalism and leadership

Sherlock’s a ravenclaw

I like to think of it this way

Slytherins are those people who get straight A’s because they work damn fucking hard at it and no one will keep them from reaching the top

Ravenclaws are those people who get straight A’s because they just kind of “remember things from class” and never even crack open a textbook. 

this is honestly the best way i’ve ever had anyone describe to me why both sherlock and i are ravenclaws even though i knew it in my gut this is so so helpful bless thank

steven moffat would sort sherlock into slytherin

Hello can she be my knight please?

“Developing the ability to piss other people off (or even to RISK pissing them off) without knuckling under is pretty much the Holy Grail of emotionally abused kids, I think. We are programmed to respond at the first sign of displeasure, and we don’t have the faith in ourselves and our decisions to weather the storm– or even a mild sprinkle– so we tend to freak out as if the world was ending if a cloud crosses the sun. We freak out about the possibility that we’re wrong, that we’re doing the wrong things, that we’re making the wrong choices, that we’ll make someone angry, because there’s this awful certainty lurking at the back of our minds that says “If you do the wrong thing, you will be in TROUBLE.” And being in TROUBLE is the worst thing, ever, because that part of our brain is forever three years old where our parents are our whole world and being in TROUBLE is the end of everything.

It takes a lot of practice to gain that sort of gut-level knowledge that we’re strong enough to handle this stuff and that the world doesn’t end if someone else is angry at us. It’s not an innate quality that some people have and some don’t; people who grow up in non-abusive homes learn it when they’re young, is all, and the rest of us have to learn it when we’re grown up. And it sucks, and it’s not fair, and it’s not fun, but there’s no getting around it, and you can do it, you CAN.

You can piss people off.

You can be wrong.

You can fuck up.

You can do stuff that everyone thinks is weird.

AND IT IS ALL OKAY. The world won’t end. You will still be a good person. And the likelihood is that most of the things you do WON’T be wrong, and WON’T piss people off, and WON’T be up-fuckery, and WON’T be weird, but if it is? The hell with it; fix it, if necessary, and move on.”
