Myer-Briggs Personality Type: Harry Potter
Take the test here.
Just take in that J.K Rowling could have left it at The Deathly Hallows and she didn’t have to make Pottermore or anything she didn’t even have to write an epilogue or anything but she CHOSE to and she CHOSE to write these articles not for money or anything, like she’s literally writing fanfiction about her own story and that’s how cool she is so if you don’t like JK Rowling goodbye because she is actually amazing
THIS IS THE BEST THING I HAVE EVER SEEN
I’VE BEEN TRYING TO FIND THIS FOR SEVEN YEARS
DO YOU UNDERSTAND HOW HARD IT IS TO ?????
I’m fucking dying
I bought my friend an elephant for their room.
They said “Thank you.”
I said “Don’t mention it.”
Is there a joke here that 15 thousand people get but I don’t?Yup
a kid at hogwarts who just wants to get a proper education but can’t focus because of all of the shit harry potter and his friends keep getting themselves into
Jenna B. Lacey, age eleven, knew exactly what she was going to do with her life.
She was going to go to Hogwarts, get top grades, and be the youngest female Minister of Magic by age 35.
It would have been a good plan, if she hadn’t been in the same year as Harry Potter.
* * *
Year one started out great. She was sorted into Hufflepuff, did well in all her classes, and aced the exams.
A troll smashed its way through the study room she was in on Halloween, but that wasn’t going to deter her.
* * *
Year two was a disaster. People were getting petrified, and worse—the teachers had to herd them from place to place, which severely cut down on her library time. She had to study in the common room, which meant instead of a nice, quiet atmosphere, she got a soundtrack of nervous Hufflepuffs.
And on top of that, exams were cancelled. It was a disaster.
* * *
Third year, she started to notice a trend.
First the troll, than the petrifications, and now dementor guards and escaped convicts. What did they all have in common? Potter.
After Black broke in and everyone had to spend the night in the Great Hall, interrupting Jenna’s last minute studying for a test the next day, she took to giving Potter angry looks in every class.
He did not notice.
* * *
They announced the Triwizard tournament at dinner the first night of fourth year, and Jenna almost started crying.
Potter was going to take this one over. She just knew it.
And she was right.
Voldemort rose at the end of the year. She honestly didn’t know what she had expected.
* * *
Fifth year brought Umbridge. She joined the DA because she was going to need a better background in defense, but that didn’t mean she was any happier about Potter.
She imagined it was him she was hexing instead of Zachariah Smith.
But, by the end of the year, focus on her studies was impossible. After Dumbledore left, it was complete anarchy.
Potter’s fault. Of course.
* * *
Sixth year she started volunteering in the hospital wing. She needed a backup plan in case Potter fucked it up.
All seemed quiet, until they brought Malfoy in. It was apparently Potter’s fault, which surprised everyone except Jenna.
Later, she was peacefully studying in a little nook on the third floor when some Death Eaters and some other adults started dueling right under her nose.
This was the worst fucking school, honestly.
* * *
They were calling it “The Final Battle.”
Jenna ran through the hall, dodging in and out of the children evacuating, until she saw him.
He turned, startled. “Um—Jenna, right? We’re sort of busy—”
She grabbed the front of his shirt and hauled him up until he was eye level with her. “If I’m not Minister of Magic by age 35, it is going to be entirely your fault and I’m going to hurt you.”
She dropped him and stormed away, leaving him to whatever he was doing. She had to fight this goddamn war so she could go back to her fucking studying.
* * *
She became Minister of Magic at age 36.
I think I just found the best Harry Potte
if you think camp jupiter can take down camp half-blood in a landslide, then i wonder how much you actually know about roman legions? or warfare in general? or history?
because guerrilla warfare was a weak point for them (and many other organized armies) like
the romans never defeated the picts for one. (picts being an ancient tribe in scotland and one of the reasons they built hadrian’s wall.) the celts and germanic tribes were among the people romans hated most because they were a pain to fight. and please look towards the disastrous battle of teutoburg forest. you know. in the woods. the woods that camp half-blood is surrounded by. the woods where romans found themselves slaughtered, despite higher numbers.
not saying camp jupiter isn’t a powerful force, because it is; the roman military developed tactics that allowed them to conquer most of the mediterranean. but camp half-blood has the home turf advantage and uses chaos like its own weapon. this works in warfare. lack of super utilitarian structure and training doesn’t mean another force can’t come out victorious. militias and revolutionaries don’t need years of diligent training to strike hard. the greek demigods train in camp, they learn how to fight, even if it’s not the same hardcore levels, and they play dirty. they aren’t like the ancient greeks - their tactics are less rigid.
guerrilla tactics WORK.
the roman legions will need to break form to fight the greeks and while i’m sure they can absolutely still fight one on one, the legion is where their advantage is. the chaos is where the greeks’ advantage is. greater numbers don’t always mean victory.
they’re pretty evenly matched here once the battle gets going.
(though the point is moot because reyna is a hero who will save the day and stand on octavian’s head with the athena parthenos behind her)
#tbh the main reason the empire survived as long as it did#was because of the sheer bloodymindedness of the romans#oh our fleet sank because we suck at boats?#better build another one#even that would have meant nothing if they didn’t have the population to pull from in order to rebuild their armies#BECAUSE THEIR ARMIES KEPT GETTING SLAUGHTERED#roman history is not a series of victories#it’s a series of losses that they keep coming back from#and then came back from less and less as time wore on and they over extended their empire#and started coming up against people (who tomato mentioned) that their disciplined army couldn’t deal with because they didn’t play by the rules#they never even took all of britain#and lost what hold they had on it in the first wave of the disintegration of their empire (via ignitesthestars)
#like even from a history standpoint#there’s a reason guerrilla warfare is used as often as it is#and the greeks have mastered this#roman legions are not infallible#points you in the direction of teutoburg forest#and the decisive german victory#despite the romans having LARGER NUMBERS#and STRICT MILITARY TACTICS#the germans w o n#and it was one of the worse losses in roman military history (via romanitas)
