took today off from work because i went home sick yesterday, but after about fourteen hours’ sleep i feel much less coldy and exhausted. more of a doona day then. (doona day n. a day taken off from work for relaxation or idleness, or in aid of mental health.) slept in late, made breakfast (blueberries and eggs and toast!), drank a lot of chai tea, tidied and swept my room which was badly in need of it, and read (Emily of New Moon, which felt like coming home). It’s one of the hottest days of the year, but there’s a fan going and my room is clean and I’ve given myself permission to just keep relaxing and resting and getting over this horrid cold I couldn’t shake and only doing the pressing Useful Things that keep threatening to overwhelm if I have the energy and feel like it. It’s a proper day off, and I’ve needed it, so much.
if it wasn’t so ridiculously hot I’d make myself a blanket fort.

Imagine Muggleborns having patronuses that represent something from Muggle culture that they feel protected by. A shy Hufflepuff with a Pikachu patronus. A Slytherin who’s really nervous because of all the stuff in the past and they’re Muggleborn but they cast a patronus and it’s one of the Game of Thrones dragons. A Gryffindor being the talk of the common room because of their Jaeger patronus. A Ravenclaw with a comic obsession finding out their patronus is the Hulk.
