More Gilmore Girls sorted into Hogwarts houses

Dean Forester – Dean was Rory’s first boyfriend. He didn’t value smarts first so that would rule out Ravenclaw for Dean. He wasn’t very interested in college or excelling in his career. He did love Rory though and he looked after her, protected her, he even built her a car. He was so loyal to Rory even when he knew her head was getting turned by Jess. As well as that afterwards he still tried to be friends with her because he still valued her friendship. He was also still nice to Lorelai even though he was no longer dating her daughter. His quick temper is something that he can’t always control which was be the only thing that would differ from the usual Hufflepuff attributes. However, we all have our flaws and having a quick temper doesn’t stop him from being loyal and he tries to control his temper. Overall I would put Dean Forester in Hufflepuff.

Jess Mariano – Jess is very into learning but it has to be on his terms. He failed his last year of school because he didn’t attend even though he could have passed school if he had attended more lessons. Jess likes to find out things for himself and he has lots of traits that Ravenclaws have such as; Intelligence, Individuality, and Creativity. He ends up becoming a writer which I feel is a job that some Ravenclaws would have. He shares a lot of traits with Ravenclaws however he also shares traits with other houses. He can also be a jerk sometimes, playing with Rory’s emotions while she was with Dean, not communicating with Rory and leaving her waiting around for him. He’s quite often starting fights, at school, with Dean, this can be seen as a Gryffindor trait but I don’t quite think Jess is a Gryffindor. I lot of the things he did to win Rory over were very calculated and may have been seen as a Slytherin trait however I feel like this is more of a Ravenclaw trait. The way he made Rory jealous and compete with showing more affection to Dean to try to make him jealous which ended up playing right into his hands. Also when he out bid Dean on Rory’s basket that made Dean far more jealous than he originally was and also started the wedge further which led to Dean breaking up with Rory. Overall I would put Jess in Ravenclaw because his traits and what he values more which is knowledge would put him in Ravenclaw.

 

Logan Huntzberger – Logan was stuck between Slytherin and Gryffindor. He has the cunning and ambition of a Slytherin but also has the thrill seeking and bravery of a Gryffindor. He can be reckless, when he was part of the life and death brigade he did a dangerous jump with Rory when he took her to her first event for her article. Not only that but later on in Gilmore girls he ends up getting hurt because of one of the stunts he did in the life and death brigade. The reckless and brave (although in some cases stupidity) attitude he had when it came to the life and death brigade would be traits towards Gryffindor. He can be lazy and entitled when he worked for the Yale Daily News he showed up when he felt like it because he knew that Doyle would suck up to him because his father was a publishing tycoon. He rode on the coat tails of the old money tied to his families name. Coming from old money and also using that for its own gain could be likened to Draco Malfoy who was a Slytherin and to many other Slytherins like him. However, I’d like to get away from that Stereotype that all Slytherins are purebloods and evil because I’m not here for that. Logan is a romantic; he not only helped Luke when he forgot to get a Valentine’s gift for Lorelai but also gave Rory a rocket when he left for London. The rocket was a reference to an episode of a show they watched which meant that he thought she was his true love and he would wait forever just to eventually spend time with her and grow old together. Logan shows many traits from Gryffindor; Bravery, Courage, recklessness, thrill seeking. As well as this he also shows many traits from Slytherin; Ambitious, Cunning, Charming, and not to mention Persuasive. Not to mention he stole a boat which to be fair could happen to either houses. Overall this was the hardest sorting I have had to do for a character, I would put Logan in Slytherin because although he can be reckless I also feel he has ambition and he finds a way to excel even if it may not be a career.

Fangirl addiction

These questions come from the the Fangirl Life Bamf Journal which goes along side the book The Fangirl Life by Kathleen Smith. Link to buy the book

The warning signs I experience when I start developing a fangirl addiction are;

Staying up late, Isolating from others, smart phone dependency, procrasting on work, spending lots of money, and unhealthy eating.

One of the fangirling behaviour I’d like to change is unhealthy eating.

I used to be really bad at eating regular meals. I always forget to have breakfast which is the most important meal of the day. I end up having a pot of yoghurt every morning but it’s not a great breakfast to start of the day. As well as that I often eat unhealthy food like share packets of crisps to myself often.

On a scale on 1 to 10 for motivation to eat healthier I would pick a 7. This is because I know I have to eat healthier and also regular meals. I also want to stop skipping meals.

To do this I would make more of an effort to make healthier lunches, get rid of all the junk food in my house, pre make dinners for the week.

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend – Alcoholism

Crazy Ex Girlfriend is an amazing Tv Show about a young woman who has mental health issues and isn’t dealing with them so great. It’s so much more than that but I will get into that in another post. You should definitely watch the show though.

Not only to they get mental health illnesses right they also get other disorders such as Alcoholism right. Greg Serrano is an alcoholic and isn’t shown as a stereotypical alcoholic. He’s shown as some one who has a drink with his friends or goes to the bar after work all things people relate to. This kind of alcoholism is socially acceptable so we never really see it as a problem until season 1 episode 18 where Greg turns to drink and ruins a perfect moment with Rebecca. He then goes to AA meetings which we can see help him. The show also shows us how Greg tells his friends and how they deal with it, awkward at first but then come to terms with it and get used to it. This is something we don’t often see because we all think drinking socially is completely fine but being out drinking a beer in a park in the middle of the day is not for example. I think it also makes people realise that actual alcoholism is something much more than the stereotypical portrayal shown in most TV shows and films.

Wayward Sisters

I just found out Wayward sisters isn’t being picked up by CW and I’m so upset. I was really looking forward to watching it. I saw in an article that it wasn’t picked up because CW said wayward sisters wasn’t were it needed to be and Legacies beat it to be picked up instead.

The episode of Supernatural which was a pilot for Wayward sisters was so good, It reintroduced old characters in a new setting. We see Alex Jones working a full time job and trying to live a normal life away from hunting. We also see Claire Novak fighting monsters like we see Sam and Dean do every season but instead of the first 2 minutes seeing people die we actually see Claire save a little girl from werewolves, and later on in the episode she even saves Sam and Dean with the help of Kaia Nieves. It’s really nice to watch an episode with such strong women and role models. I would have really loved to see this become it’s own Tv Show.

There is currently a Change.org petition to save Wayward sisters which Kim Rhodes herself has posted on Twitter. The petition

Ginny Weasley

Ginny Weasley gets a lot of hate from the fandom and mainly people who only watched the films. Below is a list of all the fierce and awesome things Ginny Weasley has done.

These are some of my favourite quotes from Ginny Weasley;

Yeah, the D.A.’s good. Only let’s make it stand for Dumbledore’s Army because that’s the Ministry’s worst fear, isn’t it?

 

The thing about growing up with Fred and George is that you sort of start thinking anything’s possible if you’ve got enough nerve.

 

I’m three years older than you were when you fought You-Know– Who over the Philosopher’s Stone and it’s because of me Malfoy’s stuck back in Umbridge’s office with giant flying bogeys attacking him!

 

Harry: “I didn’t want anyone to talk to me.

Ginny: “Well, that was a bit stupid of you, seeing as you don’t know anyone but me who’s been possessed by You-Know-Who, and I can tell you how it feels.

Harry: “I forgot.

Ginny: “Lucky you.

 

Harry: “And Ginny, don’t call Ron a prat, you’re not the Captain of this team —

Ginny: “Well, you seemed too busy to call him a prat and I thought someone should —
