i have the feeling we were at the same one and like ugh was the line for the bathroom crazy long cause of rennovations?
Nope, don’t think we were at the same one. They weren’t doing renovations. I also wasn’t anywhere near where I live.

I can say it a million times.

Loyalty is a main trait of Gryffindor and Slytherin.

Not Hufflepuff. Hufflepuffs are certainly loyal, but it is a secondary trait. They’re primary traits are patience, kindness, and hard work. 

The sorting hat literally says “just and loyal.”  Don’t misconstrue my house, please, especially if you don’t want other misconstruing yours.  It really doesn’t matter if you’ve said it a billion fucking times, JKR wrote the books and her canon is what matters.  Maybe you should check this stuff before you post to another house’s tag proclaiming your incorrect ideas about said house.

Okay I was gonna leave this conversation, but you decided to be rude, so hi.

Look, I’m not misconstruing Hufflepuffs. I love Hufflepuffs. I love that they are loyal (and I am not for ONE SECOND saying they aren’t). My BEST FRIEND is a Hufflepuff and literally one of the most loyal people I know.

But there is an overwhelming and seriously unjust trend of sorting people who should belong in Gryffindor, Slytherin, or Ravenclaw into Huffepuff solely because they display loyalty.

I’m not saying Hufflepuffs aren’t loyal. I’m saying other houses display and value loyalty and the fact that someone is loyal should not be enough to just put them into Hufflepuff when their more dominant traits are obviously not loyalty, or their loyalty springs from them belonging to another house.

Because remember, Slytherins value loyalty too, as the Sorting Hat also tells us when he sings “you’ll meet your real friends.” That’s loyalty but it’s a loyalty earned, not a loyalty freely given.

And I’ve watched one too many Slytherin or Gryffindor characters put into a house that makes no sense for them. Like when a character continually talks about honor and courage, but also happen to be loyal that loyalty should not be enough for them to be Hufflepuff. Or when a character is loyal to a small group of people and is cunning and ambitious that loyalty should not outweigh that cunning, especially when Slytherins value loyalty just as much as Hufflepuffs, just in a different way.

My frustration literally has nothing to do with Hufflepuff and what house have loyalty or not and literally everything to do with how shallowly people sort characters.

Then perhaps you should have phrased it as such.  I never said it was the only reason people were sorted into Hufflepuff, but it certainly is a big factor.  But saying that people who are loyal and cunning are definitely Slytherin is basically doing the same thing.  Everyone has a mix of all of the traits; fansorting or sorting one’s self will always have bias based upon who is doing the sorting.  Just because you believe some people belong in one house or the other doesn’t mean that everyone will agree with you, and making broad statements such as the one you made earlier will not endear you to people who already feel that they have to defend against being seen as the worthless or stupid house.

You’re talking to a Slytherin, hun, trust me I know how you feel about being in a hated or stupid house. It’s not fun.

And you know what I’m regretting ever having made that stupid post. It was late at night where my censors are done, and it was directed passive aggressively at one blog who don’t respond well to criticism, so I was just ranting a little bit.

And guess what that same Hufflepuff best friend agrees with  me on these frustrations. Heck, I’ll even tell you the characters and if you know them see if you agree. I’ve seen Owen from Torchwood sorted into Hufflepuff, when he should be a Slytherin. His loyalty is to such a small group of people, and it’s a loyalty that can be lost if people betray him, and it’s a loyalty that has to be earned. Add that to his ambitions and his manipulative nature that literally embed every single one of his actions and he should be in Slytherin. The other is Ned Stark from Game of Thrones who is apparently the model Hufflepuff though every action he did to me seemed very Gryffindor.

And no you never said it was the sole people but to this blog no other house can display loyalty and any character who values loyalty is automatically put into Hufflepuff. I have never seemed them do a nuanced sorting of this, and I have seen them display other problems with how they portray both Hufflepuff and Slytherin

"Sadly, we’ve gotten letters from people who explain that they love the show but hate the gay story-lines. That we shouldn’t be polluting their children’s heads. To this I’d sometimes like to sarcastically reply, would you also like us to tell them that a stork is dropping off our offspring? That the sky is purple? That it is not practical to be true to yourself, because there are mean people in this world that will make them feel wrong for being honest? That instead of embracing themselves, they should lie to the world? THEY should be the ones being untrue and unhappy?"

You’ve officially spent to much time on Tumblr when this happens:

So last weekend me and my family stopped at a Buc-Cees (giant gas station/road stop with ridiculously clean bathrooms. They sell anything from furniture to road trip merchandise). Well me and my sister are walking around and she points out a rather large ice cooler to me to pount out it cost over 700 dollars.

Without missing a beat, I go, “wow you could fit a body in that.”

Facts about my life: I had to learn how to ride a bike twice (once at the normal age and once when I was about 13)

I am living proof that the phrase “you never forget how to ride a bike” is false.
