Well, I have discovered that JK Rowling’s house elves are actually just hobgoblins. So in european folklore hobgoblins are short little hairy men (not very house elf like). But a hobgoblin lives in a person’s house secretly, and at night will do chores for that person like washing dishes or folding laundry, and all they need in return is a bowl of milk or something. Now that’s sort of house elf-like. But you may also learn that if you decide to reward your (naked or dressed in rags) hobgoblin for his help by giving him some real fricking clothes, he will leave the house either because he’s offended because you thought he wanted the clothes or because he didn’t want his clothes to get dirty. Pretty darn house elf like. And then in a different region that I forget, there is a more mischievous hobgoblin variety called a Dobby. I rest my case.

Also can we please stop speculating about Taylor’s personal life?!?!? If the reputation eras taught us anything it is that she deserves her privacy, so maybe instead of trying to pick out who her songs are about or what her personal relationships are like, maybe we can just focus on her lyrical genius and speculate about what she has to say about the universe rather than her private life. Idk just a thought

I’m listening to Folklore tonight and it occurs to me I haven’t read any comparisons to Tori Amos. Taylor had a song on 1989 that I am positive was an homage to Amos. Am I just reading the wrong articles? Am I dating myself?

By the way, if you like Folklore and haven’t listened to Tori Amos you should totally look her up

dear taylor,

this post is for @taylorswift. I know there’s a very slim chance of her seeing this but I can hope!

I just wanted to say thank you for everything. You and your music saved my life. If it weren’t for you, I don’t know where I’d be right now. I’ve been a fan of you since I was 3, and I’ve never stopped being a fan of you. I’ve grown up on your music, and as your music has adapted and changed, my taste has too! I love your music and you definitely saved my life. You’ve gotten me through very very dark times.

Thank you @taylorswift ❤️
