Here’s my theory. The Harry Potter trio are actually representations of the other houses. Hermione is Ravenclaw. Ron is Hufflepuff. Harry is Slytheryn. They’re all in Gryffindor because they asked. In fact, everyone in that house could have been in another house if they hadn’t asked to be in Gryffindor. You have be ask to be in Gryffindor because their most defining feature is bravery and anyone can choose to be brave.
“Someday, we’ll run into each other again, I know it. Maybe I’ll be older and smarter and just plain better. If that happens, that’s when I’ll deserve you. But now, at this moment, you can’t hook your boat to mine, because I’m liable to sink us both.”—Gabrielle Zevin, Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac (via durianquotes)
I know I said yesterday that I would do a voice recoding today, but I’m realising very quickly that my mobiles microphone is utter rubbish. I’ll probably record a YouTube video Sunday morning instead (I’m busy tomorrow), when there is a little bit of natural light. Hope that works for anyone who was interested :)
I wanted to ask you a question. Tomorrow, I'll get Divergent and at the moment I don't have much money, so is it necessary to read the other books after the first one or not?
I loved them! Each of the first two books do end on cliffhangers though. The second book even more so than the first. I’m the kind of person who can’t think straight knowing the answers are out their but with a little patience I’m sure you could wait :)
Do you live in the UK? I know I’m plugging theworks.co.uk really hard at the moment, but they have the full divergent trilogy on there for £9.99+ delivery, or WH smith has them in their buy one get one for £1 section so you could get the first two? Or how about the good old library?
I really hope you like the book though, I’m excited for you!
“People like saying life’s short a lot. The problem is, they don’t really mean it. It actually is short, very short, but they don’t believe in its shortness until the very end. Had they truly meant it, our world would have been a really different place. They would know what to do with their lives.”—Ray N. Kuili, Eden Can Wait (via larmoyante)
