omg I’m staying with this family (friends of my parents and have known me since I was a kid) and the son (age 18) just came into my room (originally one of his rooms) to get HIS copy of Pride and Prejudice!

I teased him that he should not be reading this being a manly man and all and he was looking at me like ‘Are you freaking serious?’

Good boy.

"I’ll never have an answer to what makes me special. I remember many years ago, my mother said to me, ‘Considering that you have no talent, it’s really extraordinary where you’ve got.’ and that’s what I really believe to this day. I’ve always been self-conscious about my interviews, about my thinness, my tallness, my unattractiveness. My success — it still bewilders me.” Audrey Hepburn +

I know, it’s almost impossible to succeed but who cares really? The answer must be in the attempt.

As someone who identifies as a ravenclaw, could explain exactly what traits other than a love of learning/knowledge is associated with the house? BC I feel like there has to be more than that since lots of people have that but aren't in ravenclaw?

anghraine:

The same reason that there are brave people outside Gryffindor, ambitious ones outside Slytherin, and loyal ones outside Hufflepuff: it’s not just about having the house trait (most people have at least a little of all the house traits, and some don’t have much of their own house traits) but about valuing it. 

Think of the scene is PS/SS where Hermione dismissively says that her strengths (her knowledge and pragmatic intelligence) are unimportant compared to Harry’s. Hermione is not only brave herself, but considers courage and heroism better, more worthwhile and valuable, than knowledge and learning. That’s why she’s in Gryffindor. 

And think of people like Snape (who, whatever else one might say of him, has nerves of steel) and Goyle (not exactly cunning) and Peter (hardly an exemplar of courage). It’s not a hard and fast system.

So, I’d say I’m a Ravenclaw because knowledge and learning are the most important things in the world for me. It’s not that I’d choose to save a book from a burning house over a kitten or friend, or something ridiculous like that, but that knowing things and studying things is the driving purpose of my life and where much of my joy in life comes from. 

if i were to take an unsubstantiated fictional personality system deadly seriously ;)

I actually think Hogwarts sorting, along with MBTI/Enneagram/Alignments/favorite books/movies/characters/ships/etc., is worth taking seriously (but not TOO seriously lol). Those things provide an (extremely fun) incentive for us to think critically about our own personality, values, desires, etc. which will undoubtedly be beneficial even if the systems are flawed most of the time.

And I think the OP could go to Pottermore (or follow pottermoreanalysis) and read the welcome letters from the four houses, since they have some extra info on the traits each house values.

Sorting is a tricky business though. Mary Crawford is more Slytherin than Lady Bertram—in fact, everyone is more Slytherin than Lady Bertram—but Lady Bertram will be the only one from Mansfield Park to get into Slytherin because she just doesn’t display any Claw/Puff/Gryff traits whatsoever.

Jill’s infinite list of royal outfits that slay (16/∞)

 Crown Princess Mary, then Mary Donaldson, attended her pre-wedding gala concert with her (then) fiance Crown Prince Frederik on May 13th, 2004 . Mary wore a Uffe Frank gown inspired by one of Queen Ingrid’s gowns and the Danish Ruby Parure with the parure’s matching earrings, brooch, bracelet, and necklace. 


This is honestly one of my favorite looks of hers!! It’s so glamours yet very regal!

She does look fantastic from the front but the GINORMOUS butt bow is a no-no.
