THIS HAS TO BE ONE OF THE GREATEST THINGS I’VE EVER SEEN IN MY LIFE. I mean, look how quickly the expression changes from “Gotta fix my hair” to “I’m a badass with a gun and I’ll shoot you dead, mother fucker.”
Oh my god Sam what are you even doing
secret society of muggleborn students dedicated to figuring out how to make wifi work at hogwarts
Dumbledore is literally the scum between my toes
- LEAVES A 1YO CHILD ON A DOORSTEP IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT LIKE ‘OH NVM THEYLL FIND HIM IN THE MORNING LOL’
- knows good and well how the dursleys are abusing and neglecting harry and just LETS THE SITUATION CONTINUE even though we see in the fifth book that he has the power to stop it (the ‘remember my last letter’). he lets harry be LOCKED UP IN A CUPBOARD and abused for ten years both because of the ””protection”’ privet dr has for harry (don’t worry, it’s only at the cost of his emotional and mental wellbeing, it’s all good) and because he WANTS harry to fall in love with the wizarding world, like voldemort did, like snape did, because it will make him easier to manipulate
- GROOMS HARRY TO BECOME A PERSON WHO WILL WILLINGLY DIE FOR ””’THE GREATER GOOD””
- PURPOSEFULLY WITHOLDS INFORMATION FROM HARRY AND KEEPS HIM UNINFORMED SO HE’LL DO WHAT DUMBLEDORE WANTS WHEN DUMBLEDORE WANTS HIM TO DO IT
- tells harry in ootp that he kept the truth from him because HE ACCIDENTALLY ENDED UP CARING ABOUT HARRY. LIKE OH HERE’S THE KID I’VE BEEN PLANNING TO KILL AND HAVE LET LIVE A MISERABLE LOVELESS LIFE IN ORDER TO RIGHT THE WRONG OF THE OTHER BOY I FEEL LIKE I LET DOWN AND I ACCIDENTALLY REALISED HE’S A HUMAN BEING WELL FUCK
- told arabella figg she couldn’t be nice to harry when he went to her house? like what the FUCK?
- after all his lectures and ”’wisdom”’ STILL GOES AFTER THE HALLOWS HIMSELF BECAUSE HE WANTS THE POWER
- literally told harry the only reason he didn’t make him a prefect was because he didn’t want people to think he ””plays favourites”” like he didn’t last minute give gryffindor the house cup like four fuckin years in a row because of harry
- KNEW HE WAS GOING TO DIE AND DIDN’T TELL/PREPARE HARRY FOR THE EMOTIONAL DEVASTATION OF LOSING ANOTHER/HIS LAST FATHER FIGURE AND EVEN MADE HARRY WATCH HIM DIE
- locked sirius up AFTER HE HAD SPENT TWELVE YEARS IN PRISON in the house where he was ABUSED AS A CHILD AND MADE TO FEEL OUTCAST AND UNLOVED and pretty much exacerbated sirius’ arrested development and feeling of worthlessness because he’s dumbledore and dumbledore knows best
- LET SNAPE TEACH AT HOGWARTS FOR 15+ YEARS DESPITE KNOWING FULL WELL HOW HE TREATED STUDENTS JUST BECAUSE HE WANTED TO KEEP HIM CLOSE
- HE IS IN A POSITION OF POWER - ARGUABLY THE POSITION OF POWER - AND USES IT TO MANIPULATE AND EMOTIONALLY TRAUMATISE HARRY AND BATTER HIM INTO A WEAPON TO USE AGAINST VOLDEMORT AT THE COST OF HARRY’S FUCKING CHILDHOOD
and this is NEVER ADDRESSED in the books. Dumbledore is never seen as anything but a wise and noble father figure to Harry. HARRY NAMES HIS SON AFTER THIS MAN WHO MANIPULATED HIM AND LITERALLY WALKED HIM INTO THE SLAUGHTERHOUSE. FUCK dumbledore.
One of the worst moments of my life was when I realized that Dumbledore was not a great leader on a pedestal but rather a manipulator directing a bunch of mannequins.

COMMON TUMBLR BEHAVIOUR BY HOGWARTS HOUSE:
Gryffindors are often those blogs that you see adding their own commentary to every post they make, original or reblogged. They often do this within the actual post itself, rather than in the tags, because that makes it more clear, and that is what they want. Gryffindors want to be noticed, and they want their opinions shared, and blogging is a very simple way to do that. Gryffindors are also very commonly reblogging about issues they care about, and doing this constantly and without any shame. Their strong values come into play with this, and they are this way not only with real life issues but with fandom. If they love a specific movie, ship, or what have you, they will show it; if you feel the need to bash that thing on their dash, you’ll never hear the end of it. Gryffindors being social, also want to have many followers and recognition. Not necessarily to have the most followers (though they appreciate that a lot, also), but because they enjoy having a large array of people in which to speak with.
Not unlike Gryffindors, what you find on the blog of a Hufflepuff will be what you would find in their heart. They are things they care about, issues or things that may seem trivial but have some form of deeper meaning to them. They will often not express this meaning in a direct and blunt form, because they feel uncomfortable doing that. They mostly want their blog to be a welcoming place, and appreciate every follower they get because they feel as though their blog represents all that they enjoy, and through their followers they feel approval. That said, Hufflepuffs don’t pull punches either, and aren’t going to post about things they don’t care for, or vice versa not speak on things they are concerned with. Everything a hufflepuff does is a piece of them, and that includes blogging. Though they may not be quick to socialize with others, if you are to communicate through a hufflepuff via their blog, they will be incredibly friendly and welcoming to you.
Ravenclaw bloggers do not often let the ideas and views of others get in their way. Ravenclaws are naturally intellectual artists, and everything which they have is a canvas, including a blog. They may not have the busiest blog at times, because they don’t want to reblog or post everything in sight. If they enjoy it, it makes clear sense to them and they find it stimulating, then they will, but they think it through as they do with everything. They are not shy to give their opinions, but they are often a bit more blunt in this area than would be a Gryffindor or Hufflepuff. They will put their most notable points within a post, and leave the details either unsaid or in the tags. A blog to them is what is important, so they don’t want theirs to be at all trivial. Followers are not a large concern for them, but those that they do have they will treat with consideration and accommodation.
Aside from Gryffindors, many more well known blogs on tumblr are run by bloggers whom are Slytherins. This is due to not only their ambition, but their natural ability to impress. Slytherins are very sure to keep with their own ideas, but they will also glitter them to the fullest extent, making them appealing even to the most hesitant of persons. This makes them have a draw that many others enjoy. Slytherins are as strongly into saying what they think as are Gryffindors, however they are a bit more subtle about it. You will often find snakes with a swarm of tags under their posts, because that is where they would rather vent instead of cover a post with words; this counts even more so if said post is a graphic or photoset. Aesthetics is a very pleasant thing, and this means a Slytherin blogger will often be well organize and have everything looking clean and precise. Slytherins enjoy having plenty of followers because it makes them feel more sure in themselves, though they also have no problem losing some if it is for good reason. They have a hard time sugar coating things, but they still do appreciate those who are kind to them, and try to be as cordial as possible.
Revised Hogwarts House Analysis
It’s been almost two years since I did my first analysis like this, which everyone as ridiculously supportive of. Yet I have found myself wanting to make corrections to my much more bland observations then, so here we go.
Gryffindor is often classified by many as the house of bravery and daring. While these are indeed Gryffindor traits, they are not Gryffindor exclusive. Rather, within this house they are classified more as the troped forms of bravery and daring that we often see in literature. These are people who want to be the heroes of their own story, and show just how bold and capable they are. It is this need to prove that goes far beyond whatever actual causes they may have to go through with such life mission statements. Gryffindors have the ability to be sudden and bold because they do not have the limitation of thinking things over to a great extent. They work much more so in the moment with very little planning, and whether or not this works out for them just depends on luck and their individual cunning. Gryffindor people tend to be very emotionally driven as their primary function, and work with their hearts first and their heads second. They will jump into something because it matters to them or just has an appeal to their interest, only to see it’s down sides as time goes on and be displeased with them. Gryffindors can be very quick to flip outlooks, mostly trying to keep a positive outlook on everything until their own mindsets or goals are threatened, at which point they can turn quite negative and “doom and gloom” feeling like powers in the universe are against them. They can lash out quite easily when like this, and often do not realize how hurtful they can be. They have a way of unleashing intrapersonal frustrations on interpersonal relationships, which can be problematic. When on their often attempted optimistic note, Gryffindors are much more boisterous and excitable in a positive light, wanting to go on any small adventure or just find different ways to go out and seize the day. Their loyalty and love is often more secluded to their friends and family, though they may often try to claim otherwise and overestimate their own affections and passions. When the chips are down, Gryffindors will show where their priorities actually lie, despite their claims to be all caring.Overall, Gryffindors are impulsive, exciteable, and daring in their endavours, with something about their own personal values they feel the need to prove. They like all houses have their negative sides, though try to ignore them with their best effort.
The unfortunate stereotype often given to the Hufflepuff house is that it is both passive and weak, and this could not be any farther from the truth. Hufflepuffs, after Slytherins, are the house type most filled with conviction. When they truly love something, they give it their full attention and do so unconditionally. Their enjoyment is obvious, but not in the way of Gryffindor where they feel the need to announce it to the world. It shows on their features and in their tones and that is all that is truly necessary for you to realize how deeply they do care about something. It is from this trait that most Hufflepuff strength comes, and they have it in great abundance. Their heart is their main point of courage, and it is from this and what they fill it with that they draw the ability to do whatever matters to them. They are much more silent about this than would be a Gryffindor or Slytherin, because they do not necessarily want any kind of recognition or to make a point, they just want to do what’s right. Hufflepuffs are also not fans of conflict, and will avoid it the best that they can, seeing it as unnecessary. That said, if someone bothers them they are much more likely to deal with this passive aggressively, rather than speaking out in a more blunt manner. Veiled sweetness is the Hufflepuff’s weapon. They are so used to being underestimated that others can have trouble within reading them, and they can use this to their advantage quite often. Hufflepuffs are the most loyal of houses in coherence with Slytherin, both in different ways yet with similarities laced within. Both believe actions speak louder than words, but Hufflepuffs are much less angrily loyal and much more so in affectionate way. They will be there for you if you need them for absolutely anything, and to them that is the most loyal thing one can do. They do not need to go leaps and bounds to prove themselves, and this works for them quite well, often. Overall, Hufflepuffs are much stronger than they are ever given credit for, and most of this stems from the fact that they do not act for themselves, but for the people that they love.
Ravenclaw is probably the least stereotyped of the houses, at least in an inaccurate way. Ravenclaws do, indeed, value knowledge above everything else, this is not untrue. The difference between this statement and the common assumption is that there are many different interpretations of knowledge. Ravenclaws are similar in the way that they all use their heads first, taking everything in and trying to keep it for future reference. The things that cause them to differ is their heart coming into play, deciding what in their inventory matters to them and what hits the mark of their passions. Whether a Ravenclaw likes to push their knowledge or not depends on the individual, but many like to show their intelligence, and will pick the subject which resonates with them the most in order to do this. When they are in their element, they are much more a relaxed and pleasant individual than they may be out of it, as then they may grow defensive in being uncomfortable with something they don’t truly know. Ravenclaw friendship and companionship is much more a boiled down thing than it can be with other houses. While they do indeed love these people dearly, they can have a difficult time showing it simply because such expression is not really something they specialize in. When they can manage such expression they do so best in words, in a poetic and fluid form that let’s you know that they mean it. They are not very defensive in terms of loyalty, as they are independent souls and expect others to be as well, settling within the idea that everyone can take care of themselves. Some can even see such defensiveness as offensive if one were to hold it with them, without understanding that person. Overall, Ravenclaws are very focused on the knowlege of the world and see intelligence as life’s key focus, but they are all individual within their passions, and do not care about your approval of them, so long as you know that they are there.
Slytherins are often concieved as selfish and in everything for themselves, and this makes them next to Hufflepuff the most misunderstood house. Whether or not a Slytherin is selfish is not because of their house, but because of that individual themselves. Slytherins are survivalists, they have a natural instinct for self-preservation in whatever sense that may be needed, and this can cause them to come off as cold and abrasive when they have their defenses up. It is not a desire to be unkind but one to protect and shield oneself from whatever there may be against them, and this is all that it is. Given the circumstances of the books as well as the narrative by which they are done, this is the only side of Slytherins we really get a feel of, causing the misinterpretation. That said, Slytherins know what they want, and have the skill of putting their heart fully into something without letting it cloud their actions and make them impulsive like Gryffindors often do. Slytherins are always controlled by their logic, they think things through in a matter of seconds and like to work through life like chess, being two steps ahead of everyone else at all times. Their heart carries their strength, which comes in mounds, but the amount of self-awareness a Slytherin can carry is monumental. If they do act it, they know they have because everyone word was planned out perfectly. It’s only if they get very comfortable around you that this may fall slightly, and if something goes wrong in their doing this that analytical shield will go right back up. Slytherins are the most loyal house shared with Hufflepuff, though Slytherins do this in a much more knight templar way. Loyalty is not automatically granted because of your title, you must earn it, and once you have their trust they will do anything for you, and protect you through any means that is necessary. While this is a very strong bond that they create, the moment you betray this trust is the moment you permanently lose it, because while a Slytherin may eventually forgive (though don’t plan on it) they never, ever forget if you’ve done something they’re against. Overall, Slytherins are controlled by their heart’s ambition and their mind’s planning through it and filtering out of unwanted things, and their loyalty is unwavering and instinctively protective, so long as you do meet their own code for keeping it.
