… “You must have shown me real loyalty down in the Chamber. Nothing but that could’ve called Fawkes to you.” That’s the very first thing Dumbledore thanks and praises Harry for. Not for rescuing Ginny, or saving the school from the basilisk, or for keeping Voldemort from coming back, but for loyalty.

Dumbledore judges the people he works with based first and foremost on how loyal they are to him. Not because he thinks he’s all that, but because, as I said, he views people as game pieces, and you can’t have your game pieces acting up, can you? He values his pieces. He wants to advance and protect them. But he doesn’t want them running off beyond his sphere of influence and doing their own thing. I think there’s something very ambiguous about Dumbledore’s habit of seeking out desperate, socially outcast people and doing them one or two huge favors that leave them bound to him for life. Remus, Hagrid and Snape all fit that pattern, and Trelawney and Firenze appear to join the ranks in OOP. It kind of makes me wonder what Dumbledore has done for Fletcher, Moody and Shacklebolt.

…The problem with Sirius is, he’s not loyal to Dumbledore at all; he’s loyal to Harry. From Dumbledore’s point of view, it’s as if he’s playing wizard chess, and one of the knights suddenly decides that he doesn’t care what happens to the king, he’s just going to take care of that little pawn on the left. So Dumbledore does the only thing he thinks he can do — he sticks his recalcitrant knight into a safe, isolated corner of the board and keeps him from making any moves. Perfectly sensible and strategically sound, as long as you don’t expect your game pieces to have any pesky emotions or psychological issue that need to be taken into account.

…Dumbledore’s actions at Hogwarts are another symptom of his general approach. He doesn’t treat it just as a school, but also as an instrument in his strategy. People like Snape, Hagrid and Trelawny — all lousy teachers, in very different ways — are given their jobs as perks, because of their past of future usefulness to the Order, and because it strengthens their bonds of loyalty to Dumbledore.

OTOH, look at Lupin, who is a talented teacher. Why wasn’t he hired before Harry’s third year, especially given the difficulty of finding qualified DADA professors? My theory is that Dumbledore didn’t consider it necessary. As far as he knew, Lupin was already totally loyal simply because Dumbledore had allowed him to attend Hogwarts. There was no need to bribe him with a job. He was hired only when his familiarity with Sirius became an important factor. Once Sirius proved not to be a threat, Lupin was allowed to resign…

The first time I held a human brain in Anatomy Lab I was completely speechless. I looked at my classmates expecting a similar reaction and they looked back at me confused like…”dude let’s start identifying the structures.” I had to take a step back and let it process…in my hands was someone’s entire life. From start to finish, every memory, every emotion, every bodily control…was right there in my hands. 

I don’t care if people unfollow this is spectacular

This post just fucked me up literally

Okay no. Fucking no. You think your sandwich is cute with peanut butter and jelly hearts, fucker? Well you’ll change your mind once you put it together and try to eat it. First you’ll get a mouthful of just bread and disappointment, then when you take another bite your mouth will be assaulted by copious the amounts of sticky peanut butter and sugary jelly and there won’t be enough bread to save you from it. A sandwich like that is what failure tastes like. The pb and j may be shaped like hearts but there’s no love in that sandwich. It’s about balance. Life needs balance, and so does your fucking sandwich. You disgust me. Don’t talk to me until you know how to make a proper sandwich.

I personally think the gays should be seperated from the straights. just my opinion.

okay bitch you seriously need to go. for one, you messed with my girl jamie so that already made me wanna come to your page and talk to you but you disabled your ask. ok. so then i thought i should scroll through your blog and then this is the first thing i see? uh excuse you. yeah just your opinion but in all honesty fuck that. i’m also in the middle of reading your description. it says you read at a college level so that makes you mature for your age, yet you having this opinion seriously makes you look like the most immature person on this site. oh and the next line “I believe my opinion is higher than others because that’s just the way it is. Get. Over. It. ” you sound like such a hypocrite bc that is also one of the immature things i’ve ever read. oh my fuck and then there’s this “ALSO homosexuality is wrong. It should not be legal and I personally believe that they are not born that way. I mean, really? It’s just fucking sick and gross and needs to be dealt with. I’m tired of all this GAY PRIDE. I don’t go around screaming my ETHEL PRIDE do I? NO. So just stop." i seriously can’t even with you. i wish you had your ask enabled so i could talk to you one on one but no you don’t so yeah i had to do this

I honestly, in my opinion, you are just like everyone wanting rights but you are uneducated. You are a dimwit and lack the basic common sense to even THINK like a human. And what makes it worse, I laugh at you. I laugh at insignificant ego and think my god, i need a break today

are you fucking kidding me. i’m uneducated?! how old are you. i’ll understand where you’re coming from if you’re older and actually in college but if you’re not then you need to sit the fuck down. i actually am in college so if anything you are the uneducated one. and yeah i’m like everyone that wants rights who the fuck are you?! i seriously can’t even with you. just your audacity to say these things makes me cringe

if you are in college them you should know the reasons why there should not be gay marriage. http://www.anotherpartofme.com/12-reasons-gays-shouldnt-be-allowed-to-marry/ all valid reasons. dumbass.

I. FUCKING. CAN’T. WITH. YOU. THAT IS THE DUMBEST THING I’VE EVER READ WHAT THE FUCK. ALL VALID REASONS MY FUCKING “DUMBASS” 

Ethel, you are legit the dumbest bitch I’ve ever seen in my life. You’re trying to shut out what other people want because you can “read at a college level”? If you could read, you’d have the knowledge of human compassion. Which obviously, isn’t there. Any fucking human being that walks on this Earth has the right to do whatever they want, with whomever they want, obviously unless it harms someone else. DOES 2 MEN GETTING MARRIED HARM YOU IN ANY WAY? No. Just because it says in the Bible “Thou shalt not lie with another man,” you’re trying to be the right hand of God? LOL. You couldn’t be the right hand of the fucking Democratic party. The Bible also says we can’t do anything but go to church on Sundays. Does that stop anyone? Nope. It also says you can’t wear jeans. Does anyone hold up signs saying “GOD HATES JEANS. BURN THEM ALL.” No. You need to get a fucking reality check before you try to tell other people how to live their lives. 

Ok. I am entitled to my opinion. I DON’T BELIEVE THE GAYS ARE REALLY GAY. IT IS JUST A CHOICE AND IT IS AN ABOMINATION. I’m an atheist, so this has nothing to do with my belief. I just don’t like it. I also believe Jodie Arias is INNOCENT and that everyone needs to leave her alone. Innocent people like Jodie gets crucified while the gays get to go walking around and acting all… well, like “GivinBlowJobs”… an idiot. You are enititled to your opinion, why can’t I? Btw, BJ…you are not full of valid facts…just a product of radioactive birth control.

I’M NOT FULL OF VALID FACTS?! YOUR FUCKING LINK THAT’S SUPPOSED TO HAVE “VALID REASONS” IS FUCKING MOCKING THE IGNORANCE THAT YOU HAVE. Seriously if you’re trying to defend yourself by insulting me, it really isn’t working. 
Ok guys…listen. There is a penis and a vigana. It was made for heterosexual reproduction…not homosexuality. It is that simple. If you TRIED to be straight, you would be straight…but instead, you choose to be gay. I mean, perhaps I SHOULD start an Ethel Pride Page… I am sure there are people who agree with me and we can all ban together to stop someone like you from becoming president and changing this world. It is fine the way it is.

im rly sorry for saying this but please go to hell
let people do what they want and shut the fuck up you are actually the worst kind of person
you’re not right
you can’t tell people they’re wrong
please fuck off 

"Be the person you want to be, not the person someone wants you to be."
don’t tell people who or what they can’t be. it’s just that simple. 

thank u based god
