WHOA i had no idea. way cool!
I have such a rampant mistrust for the Sorting Hat. What kind of enchantment lasts a thousand years after its caster’s death? How is this snide piece of regrettable fashion such a master Legilimens that it knows exactly how 11 year old kids are going to turn out? What does it think about while it sits in the Headmaster’s study for untold centuries?
That fucking hat is a Horcrux and nobody can convince me otherwise. And it’s been learning the innermost secrets of every kid to pass through Hogwarts for a millennium and absorbing their power.
The Sorting Hat is going to rise up and murder us all.

Hey thanks! I got really distracted from it but I’m going to start it back up again soon here. I think it’s a helpful thing for everyone. Keep on keepin’ on!

For a show that is based on a book that sells itself on hot Scottish dude we sure don’t see a lot of this guy so far. I would like to speak to the manager until male nudity is placed in front of me.
fun fact time! you know that lovely song that plays over outlander’s opening credits (the skye boat song)? the original version was written about charles edward stuart (bonnie prince charlie)’s escape to skye after the catastrophic defeat at culloden and the end of the second jacobite rising (1746). it has quite different lyrics, but robert louis stevenson’s poem about charlie’s escape (“sing me a song of a lad that is gone”) is often sung to the tune as well
the funny part is that they changed it to “sing me a song of a lass that is gone” for outlander, BUT so the story goes that charlie was actually disguised as a serving maid for said escape to skye, so this could basically be a song about a fugitive prince dressed in drag
this is why you should study history kids
