didn’t the goblet of fire cover this

because how else would Ireland win but krum catch the snitch

actually in prisoner of Azkaban, didn’t Gryffindor need a certain amount of points to proceed to the finals, and that’s why Oliver Wood told Harry to wait until they had scored a certain amount of points before he caught the snitch?

Catching the snitch ends the game and is worth the most points, but it doesn’t guarantee a win. Just like tumblr user samuel-vimes said, Krum caught the snitch at the World Cup Finals, but Ireland still won in the end because they still had more points.

Also the way the ranking system works in the international quidditch league, and I assume at Hogwarts, according to JK Rowlings new reveal, is that teams are awarded a certain amount of points based on the amount of points a team wins by and thats how they are ranked against each other. Rowling said that a win by 150 points = 5 points, 100 points = 3 points, 50 points = 1 point, and a winner of a tie is whoever caught the snitch the quickest. So theoretically a team that only catches the snitch but wins by a margin of less than 50 points is awarded no points and might as well of not caught thats why Wood told Harry to wait until they were up a certain number of points in order to increase their overall ranking and win the cup.

And gosh, a good chunk of you people claim to hate sports.

We do hate sports. All the ones that don’t involve flying broomsticks and slightly murderous balls that try to knock you off them.

so with a lot of rewatching and a LOT of help from the glee wikia, i’ve finally put together a comprehensive glee timeline the covers from the beginning of season 1 to the end of season 5. i mostly just wanted a timeline for my own reference but then i started making it prettier and easier to read and i figured i’d post the whole thing in case it’s useful for anyone else.

because the whole timeline together is almost 6000 pixels wide, i’ve had to chop it into 5 separate images just to be able to fit it all on tumblr. but i do have the full timeline on imagebam (click to view fullsize).

there are notes on the timeline about what all the colors and different symbols mean, so if you’re confused you can check those out! i’ve done my best to make it simple and easy to read but it does get a bit cluttered anyway, especially around season 4/5 with the extended school year.

i’ll probably fix this timeline to include season 6 once the series ends as well, so if you’re looking at this timeline and notice any discrepancies or anything i may have forgotten to include, please let me know and i’ll add it onto the final version that includes season 6!


I’m stuck between wanting:

1. A long lasting relationship with my soulmate who supports me and protects me and is my partner and we are completely bad ass together and in love

2. Wanting to have casual sex and rip out the heart of everyone person I meet

3. Being independent and having a loyal dog while I’m married to my career

story of my fucking life

  • Me: I won't let it bother me I won't let it bother me I won't let it bother me
  • Me: *lays down to sleep at night*
  • Me: It bothers me, actually it really fucking bothers me, so let's lay here and think and stress about it instead of sleeping.
