A Dark Meadow
“I couldn't help thinking that if I, by pure chance, had found a whole universe in a single unknown book, buried in that endless necropolis, tens of thousands more would remain unexplored, forgotten forever. I felt myself surrounded by millions of abandoned pages, by worlds and souls without an owner sinking in an ocean of darkness, while the world that throbbed outside the library seemed to be losing its memory, day after day, unknowingly, feeling all the wiser the more it forgot.”
― Carlos Ruiz Zafón, The Shadow of the Wind

Alright. It’s all over the tag so now seems about the right time to ask:

What Hogwarts House are the characters in?

I have been waiting for an excuse to write my headcanon on this:

image

ABIGAIL MILLS = That AWESOME hero Slytherin that I always knew would be a sight to behold.

She has always put self-preservation first. It is only since she has learned of her status as a Witness that she has devoted herself to something other than that.  She has every single quality in that graphic about “Slytherin” in spades. We’ve seen her charisma in her natural magnetism (hello, Luke, obsessive Andy, and Ichabod is basically her puppy). Manipulation in getting people to do what she wants, even after they’ve said no and she is unspeakably powerful. It’s why she was sent as a child to prevent War’s rising.  

ICHABOD CRANE = Hufflepuff.  

He is near opposite from Abbie and this is why they compliment each other so much. While Abbie is about self-preservation. He was all about serving his father, then his country, then the fate of the entire world. Yes, he can be both stubborn and lazy as he rants about things he’s never tried and allows Abbie to care for him, with no guilt. He is also unfailingly kind and empathetic. We saw this in his handling of Jenny’s secret reason for remaining imprisoned.

JENNIFER MILLS = Gryffindor. 

I’ve seen people say that Jenny is Hufflepuff since she was so loyal to her sister, but that wasn’t loyalty. That was love. Jenny is for me the strongest character on the show. From resisting all those years of attempted cures for her ‘delusion’ to purposely getting arrested, for me strength isn’t talent and ability (like her sister).  It’s resistance, fortitude, and courage. In addition, we’ve seen how resourceful she is.

FRANK IRVING =  Ravenclaw  “Assume I know everything”.

I don’t think people have really given thought to just how calm and intelligent Frank has been on this show. This is a man who despite not being able to puzzle out any logic to what was happening in his jurisdiction, was smart enough to use what worked. He researched his staff so he could understand what their motivations were and how to work with them and he outwitted a demon, even while his family’s lives were under threat. 

HENRY PARISH = bitter-ass Hufflepuff.  

Nothing that this man has done has been for himself, but from some misguided sense that he needed a parental figure to serve. His abandonment issues stem from that and his entire ambition at this point is about that. Vengeance for having been abandoned and serving his new father, Moloch.

KATRINA CRANE = ??????

I have no fucking idea. We just haven’t been given enough information about where she is coming from, what her true motivations are. Hell, we don’t even know how she came to be a witch. Same thing with Nick, though I’m leaning towards Ravenclaw or Slytherin for him.

@weekendswithjackie
I just ended my job as Youth Services Librarian and I’m looking for basically anything in libraries anywhere in the US! Im not very picky. ;) I am in Wisconsin now but I’d be totally fine moving somewhere new!! :)
Oh wow, good luck! I hope you find something soon! Were you not happy where you were at? Or did your position have an end date? I’m currently working as a Children’s Librarian (but not technically a librarian, as I’m getting the degree still). I wish my system had something else open for me to send your way. It’s good that you’re open to moving, that should really open things up for you. Just remember to not say this if you end up in a college library:

I have not been waiting forever to use that gif, chica, I swear!

no

but

seriously

just

look

at

this

heart-eyes stare.

And particularly this one because is really really cute (total school boy secretly in love with a cute lady):
According to a report from Variety that just popped up online, Robert Downey Jr. is in final negotiations to join the cast of in Captain America 3 for an adaptation of the “Civil War” storyline. Featuring the introduction of the Superhero Registration Act that forces all superheroes to essentially become government employees, the film pits RDJ’s pro-registration Stark against Chris Evans’ anti-registration Steve Rogers. Given Captain America: the Winter Soldier’s existence as basically Avengers 1.5, it’s also perhaps fair to assume that the introduction of the SRA will come as a result of Age of Ultron, which most rumors point to being Tony’s “fault” thus giving him a very plausible reason for signing up to work with the government to protect us all against the dangers of superheroes.

YOU KNOW HOW WE ALL LOVED CAP 2 AND WERE EAGERLY AWAITING NEWS OF CAP 3…

THIS IS NOT WHAT WE WANTED

(via alwaysalreadyangry)

I AM SO

ANGRY

ABOUT THIS

"AS LONG AS WE GET A GOOD CAP 3 I AM FINE!" I said. "I DON’T CARE ABOUT THE REST AS LONG AS STEVE’S STORY ARC IS GOOD!" I said. "MARVEL’S GOING TO HELL BUT AT LEAST WE HAVE CAP 3!" I said. OH. HOW. VERY. NAIVE. I. WAS.

This is so fucking dumb. Get ready for Avengers 3: Iron Man, Ant-Man, and Dr. Strange! The movie we have dreamed about for years! AWESOME. AWESOME. We could, of course, have had a movie about Steve and Bucky (and other stuff obviously, but YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN), but no, no, instead we will have MORE FUCKING IRON MAN, BECAUSE THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT WE NEED. MORE TONY STARK. TONY STARK IN EVERYTHING.

Maybe they figured out that a Bucky-centric movie would be appealing to The Wimminfolk and were like, WELL WE HAD BETTER NOT DO THAT THEN, or more likely, just were not thinking about us at all and therefore did not actually consider the fact that THE MOVIE MIGHT BE A GOOD IDEA FINANCIALLY ON TOP OF CREATIVELY.

Somewhere, the Russo Brothers and Chris Evans are getting fucking blitzed. Sorry, dudes. Sorry.

ETA: ALSO GREAT NEWS: “I have been told Black Widow will not be much of a presence in Cap 3

burn it all down
