A brief summary of why I don’t like Severus Snape
since you’ve included the deathly hallows I have to deduct that your argument is invalid
Which is the main reason why I’m so annoyed with the movies. You don’t do Snape justice if you make him into some tragic romantic hero.
Ahh, the bliss that comes with being a Quokka…

↳ Stannis Baratheon
There has been a severe lack of Stannis on my blog recently. So thanks :)
|Teacher #1:||Has every single freshman read Sherlock Holmes stories, write a paper on them, and then shows them BBC!Sherlock afterwards. Occasionally complained about the hiatus during the hiatus.|
|Teacher #2:||Watches Sherlock. Occasionally gave impromptu mini-reviews of s3 episodes as they came out before class. Occasionally complained about the hiatus during the hiatus.|
|Teacher #3:||Had never read Sherlock before, until we told her the reading was too boring. Instead of yelling at us, she gave us Scandal in Bohemia. In Spanish. --Porque te gusta, Señora? --Porque la Mujer gana. Y es muy interesante. Hoping to get her watching.|
|Teacher #4:||Watched Sherlock in exchange for a promise from me that I'd watch the first season of Buffy. Baked forty-eight cookies for 221b Baker Street Day. Occasionally laughed at my pain during the hiatus.|
|School:||Baked and consumed 221 cookies for the 21st of February, 2/21. Today. Through the "fandom club", which, amazingly, the school allowed us to create.|
|Me:||I NEVER WANT TO LEAVE THIS PLACE.|
[GIVE A CHARACTER A RANDOM HARMLESS TRAIT SOMEONE HAPPENS TO HATE (Fanfic Flamingo) ‘THAT’S A SUE TRAIT!”]
I’m not talking about things like “So Beautiful It’s a Curse” or things that are actually bad writing (like the character taking the canon’s place or wrapping the universe around them like a cozy blanket). Things that…well actually are Sue traits. What I mean is when someone has a trope or trait that they for whatever reason just can’t stand seeing, but the trope really isn’t bad all by itself if done right. Like say, Cloud Cuckoolander, the Pretty Boy, the scatterbrain that’s brilliant at that one thing but just a ditz at most everything else , the book-dumb but street smart character, or the badass girly girl.
The thing is that some things just annoy people. But that doesn’t mean a character who possesses that trait or is that certain type of character is a badly written character. Like if a person doesn’t like kid characters, and there is a kid character who plays a part that doesn’t mean the kid character is a bad character. Sometimes, characters just rub you the wrong way. The author isn’t obliged to change a character because they just irk you.
