Slytherin!Harry AU (x)

#slytherin harry would have been the ultimate choice from an authorial perspective #the chosen one coming out of a house disgraced by racism and the dark arts #a living testament to the fact that slytherin house is the fast track to greatness and that good or evil is a CHOICE #also harry already had a brush with slytherin during his sorting and can speak parseltongue and all that awesome stuff #because lets be real harry is brave as hell but hes also cunning, determined to survive #a little duplicitous #and thrives on praise #slytherin harry could be besties with ron AND close to draco #he could break down interhouse prejudice and be the bright light in a noble house that has fallen into darkness #he could put an end to the honestly awful griffyndor/slytherin bullying that GOES BOTH WAYS because screw this idea that you have to choose a side, that you have to compete with people who are different than you #and he could struggle with his inner demons the whole time #because characters that could easily go bad who get up every day choosing to be good will always be more important to me than inherently good ones

#SLYTHERIN HARRY IS THE MOST IMPORTANT REIMAGINING OF CANON    #not just because of what it means for harry but because of what it means for slytherin house as a whole    #and the individuals in harry’s year    #death eater parents‚ best friends with the saviour of the wizarding world    #torn between familial loyalty and friendship    #choosing between what they were taught and what they’ve learnt for themselves  (queerpotters)

this is a warning post about littlereddo aka RED’s kuroko no basuke merchandise at AX and on her online store

please be careful about purchasing her kurobasu fanmerch, particularly those related to aomine/kise. I & several others notified her several months…

red has acknowledged that she saw 007’s designs first. she did not “see the manga and had the same idea” - she saw 007’s pixiv set and decided to switch the ears on Kise and aomine so it wouldn’t resemble 007’s exactly.

all of red’s sticker designs and charms came from one pixiv picture - red copies small details like sweat drops, poses and hearts almost exactly. this is not convergent inspiration, it is just THEFT.

this is a much less severe crime if red wasn’t SELLING these pictures in various mediums, while the original artist makes nowhere near the same amount.

I swear to every heaven ever imagined,
if I hear one more dead-eyed hipster
tell me that art is dead, I will personally summon Shakespeare
from the grave so he can tell them every reason
why he wishes he were born in a time where
he could have a damn Gmail account.
The day after I taught my mother
how to send pictures over Iphone she texted
me a blurry image of our cocker spaniel ten times in a row.
Don’t you dare try to tell me that that is not beautiful.
But whatever, go ahead and choose to stay in
your backwards-hoping-all-inclusive club
while the rest of us fall in love over Skype.
Send angry letters to state representatives,
as we record the years first sunrise so
we can remember what beginning feels like when
we are inches away from the trigger.
Lock yourself away in your Antoinette castle
while we eat cake and tweet to the whole universe that we did.
Hashtag you’re a pretentious ass hole.
Van Gogh would have taken 20 selflies a day.
Sylvia Plath would have texted her lovers
nothing but heart eyed emojis when she ran out of words.
Andy Warhol would have had the worlds weirdest Vine account,
and we all would have checked it every morning while we
Snap Chat our coffee orders to the people
we wish were pressed against our lips instead of lattes.
This life is spilling over with 85 year olds
rewatching JFK’s assassination and
7 year olds teaching themselves guitar over Youtube videos.
Never again do I have to be afraid of forgetting
what my fathers voice sounds like.
No longer must we sneak into our families phonebook
to look up an eating disorder hotline for our best friend.
No more must I wonder what people in Australia sound like
or how grasshoppers procreate.
I will gleefully continue to take pictures of tulips
in public parks on my cellphone
and you will continue to scoff and that is okay.
But I hope, I pray, that one day you will realize how blessed
you are to be alive in a moment where you can google search
how to say I love you in 164 different languages.

What really gets to me about Puppyshipping which I love, is that they can’t possibly be lovebirds right of the bat if ever, not in the super lovey-dovey sense

So when I see art like this I imagine all the time it took them to just get to the point of doing such a simple thing as holding hands! As I see them, if they were to get into a relationship, they both would have a hard time opening up to each other, often rather picking fights with each other than treating each other fondly, so it takes a lot of time and effort on their part. Which is why I get so happy when I see art like this

:D They are even trembling in embarrasment as they FINALLY hold hands, probably freaking out on the inside (that’s how I see it) It will most likely end with one of them slapping the other’s hand away, then they try to insult each other like usual with their snarky comments while beet-red in the face

That’s why they are my favorite pairing to write. Them getting together is never boring. Someone is always having a tantrum.

first post!! please bear w/ the bad phone pics for now TT. i’m going to include a small doodle w/ each pen to give a sense of their flow!! 

i’m going to start off with my ♡TOP 2♡ favourites: the Pilot G-2 (0.38mm) & the Neutral Hexagon Gel Ink from MUJI (0.4mm). both are roller ball nibs.

PILOT G-2 0.38mm (Product #: BL-G2-38-B)

Price: $1.50USD ~ $3.00USD (Jetpens)
Waterproof?: yes
Refillable?: yes (~$1.00/cartridge)
Alternates: red/blue, though 0.7mm has a whole rainbow!!

basically my main doodling pen. very smooth ink & doesn’t blot. super cheap & refillable & waterproof, what more can you ask for? however doesn’t work very well on textured paper. this is one of my go-tos when working with copics on smooth marker paper!


MUJI 中性ゲルインキ六角ボールペン 0.4mm (NEUTRAL HEXAGON PEN)

Price: 210¥‎/~$2USD (MUJI)
Waterproof?: no
Refillable?: yes (~$1.00/cartridge)
Alternates: 0.25, 0.4, 0.5 + a wholeeee range of colours (it is muji afterall)

i got this one recommended by a friend!! it has a higher ink flow than the pilot G-2 and therefore is a bit more smooth. this is one of the more expensive MUJI pens (haha $2.. yeah…) and has a really nice design & feels comfy. it’s not copic/waterproof unfortunately!

my friends ink pen blog go follow her!!!!! great pen recs 8)


I always used to think Pingu’s plasticine dinners looked so good
