    Since we all seem to be at least reasonably displeased with the Depp situation I think y'all would like this buzzfeed post (M for the comment section which is toxic, stay out)

    Review Categories During our site-wide reviewing event, I was fortunate to receive many, many lovely reviews. It got me thinking about all of the different reviewing methods that are out there. I found myself giving quirky, fun nicknames to the different types of reviews that I've gotten over the years. Feel free to add to the list! The Super-Excited - This review contains lots of exclamation points! AND CAPS!! The sentences are short and it usually starts or ends with: "WHAT HAVE YOU DONE?!" The Fly-By - This is when a reader binge-reads a whole set (or maybe ALL) the chapters in your story, but takes the time to write a short note at the end of each one. Isn't is lovely to log in to the archive and see 5 new reviews?! That Special Reviewer - This is the long, detailed review that you get from that special person who always finds your new chapters and jumps one them. You know what I'm talking about—when you post a new chapter and just wait... and wait... and wait... until they've seen it and had time to leave a review. The Play-by-Play - I love these reviews. The reader is reviewing while they are reading their story and asking questions, and then when they find the answer, you can feel their emotion at how your words affected them. Gah!! So, whaddya think? Do you have a favorite "type" of review that you've received? Do you have a certain type of review that you usually leave? Can you add to the list and come up with others?

    See, if we aligned Houses with bender types, I'd probably be an earth bender. But I don't like rocks. I like swimming, though! So maybe I'd be a water bender. But I don't think that's how it works.

    "Ravenclaw... No, Slytherin... But what if I'd be better off in Hufflepuff? Well, as long as it's not Gryffindor. Probably Ravenclaw or Slytherin, though. The other houses sound so bor- hey!" I bark, having received an elbow to my side as I'm mumbling. I glare at the boy next to me, who can't quite decide whether to be annoyed or intimidated. "They called you," he mumbles before turning away. I perk up and start marching towards the Hat, excited to see what happens. The Sorting Hat starts hmming as soon as it gets put on my head. I just wait, curious to see what it does. "Definitely curious, a thirst for knowledge. But not what one might consider a healthy respect for the rules when something's in your way. You also have quite a thirst for leadership, hmm? But you also have a willingness to set that aside if there's a better role for you to play... Slytherin or Ravenclaw? Each would challenge you in different ways, and you could likely do well in both... Hmm..." Sick of staying quiet, I finally chime in mentally, well, I would hate to be bored. That why I want to take as many classes as possible. And people can be so tiring, is that what you meant by challenging? People are fun to manipulate, but books are much better company you kno- "RAVENCLAW!" "Oh. Well, I guess that makes sense."

    Is it believable that the Holyhead Harpies would play an American team, the Fitchburg Finches?
