#hermione granger’s ruthlessness is so great though #like what an interesting flaw for your super smart overachiever bookworm character to have
#WORD #she’s SUPER SCARY and i love it #this photoset doesn’t even include like #turning a journalist into a beetle and keeping her captive #permanently disfiguring a fellow student for not holding up under pressure #erasing her parents’ identities without giving them any agency or choice
Hermione would have made a wonderful Slytherin. Fiiiiiiiiiiiic iiiiiiit!
The reason Hermoine isn’t a Slytherin is because she believes every time that what she’s doing is right. Not good for her. Not convenient. Not simply contributing to her goals. But she believes, with a whole-hearted conviction, that her choices are objectively right, fitting, and just. That’s why she doesn’t flinch. It’s one thing to think you’re doing something because it serves your ends, or its necessary. It’s another to have the burning conviction that the thing you’re about to do, no matter how heinous it might seem, is morally sound and just.
Slytherins know they’re justifying their means to get their ends. Gryffindors believe that every means they employ are just. Hermoine is a crusader knight with a wand, and doesn’t care what the collateral damage is so long as she is just in her destruction.
This is why Gryffindors are infinitely more dangerous than Slytherins. Slytherins serve their interests, and revise their plans when their interests aren’t served. They deal in reality. That’s what ambition is. But Gryffindors will march a bloody path down to the gates of hell if they are convicted of the moral necessity and justice of it, casualties be damned.

I find this extremely offensive.. Jokingly or not. Not all men are assholes, you know.
Who left this tray of lasagna here
it’s funny how the same men who make sexist jokes treat prejudiced remarks towards men completely seriously
