muggleborn ravenclaws telling the pureblood wizard kids about muggle technology and laughing at their many many questions because both their lives seem so ridiculous to the other but because of those talks, kids from the oldest wizarding families were there to stand against voldemort
ravenclaws pestering dumbledore and flitwick to no end about adding new classes because really? no sex ed??? then handing out pamphlets and other literature about all sexuality and gender and when dumbledore finally gets someone to talk to them, the ravenclaws are the only ones not blushing
ravenclaws working on projects in the common room, like cellphones that will work inside hogwarts, and everybody lending their knowledge until the whole house is abandoning thier homework trying to figure this out
ravenclaw tower having lights on all night for students not just reading but sketching and debating the intentions of politicians and writing stories
ravenclaw writers having coffehouse nights where they share those stories and their own poetry and even some music. the day before the students are passing around what they wrote around their classes so everyone proofreads it
ravenclaws taking gossip to a whole new level with notes folded up in origami animals who only open up to the intended reader
muggleborn ravenclaws running muggle libraries out of their rooms and constantly writing to their parents and friends back home to pass along books people request and copies of the hounds of baskerville passing through almost every students’ hand
first years learning to appreciate the upper student’s constructive criticism when they read over their work and learning that they’re in this house not because they’re smart but because they want to learn more
political debates over dinner being notoriously loud and passionate, even as passionate as the debates over who would be in what house if the song of ice and fire characters went to hogwarts

am i the only one who is pretty sure this is a water bending move?
I’m a firm believer that the best benders are those who look beyond their own element’s bending techniques and discover new ways of bending. Look at Toph, she bends completely differently from other earthbenders, and she’s one of the most powerful benders in the world. Look at Iroh, he devised lightning redirection from waterbending. This just shows that Zuko is a great firebender.
I think it probably has more to do with the way Zuko changed from the beginning to the end of the story. Each bending art is modeled after a martial art that closely mimics the element. Perhaps Zuko’s change in bending style is supposed to represent how his once fiery spirit had become more tranquil like a water bender’s.

they should teach how to take a good selfie in school
Just before my Year 11 Prom the school hired a photographer to come in and teach us how to stand in photos to look the nicest.
Tonight I let my new housemate talk for fifteen minutes about how bisexuality isn’t a valid sexual orientation and that they’re just greedy and have no standards and need to pick one. And then I told her I was bisexual. The back-pedalling was so messy and hilarious.
