American Horror Story Coven Is The Best Season, Hands Down

American Horror Story Coven Is The Best Season, Hands Down

And if you think otherwise, fight me.

I really have no idea how many times I've rewatched the third season of American Horror Story. I can just tell you that Coven is my favorite of them all. I'm gonna be honest, I started watching the season last week because I was high. In my head, AHS Coven sounded so freaking amazing.

I was mindblown while watching the first couple of scenes and stuffing myself with powdered doughnuts and a large Thai tea with boba. I was having the time of my life while Zoe's boyfriend bled to death during their first time having sex.

However, I didn't stop and I kept on watching it. I didn't do homework because I was watching that show for what felt like the millionth time. I feel like after everytime, the show keeps getting better and better.

I just can't stop watching it for some reason. All the magic in the show makes it more appealing to my taste. I mean, the other day I was eating Taco Bell at midnight while watching this show, and let me tell you— IT WAS AMAZING!

I mean, no offense to the other six seasons, but Coven takes the prize in my opinion. Don't believe me? Well, I made a list to change your opinion if you don't think season 3 is the best.

1. Fiona Goode

Okay, but before you get on my ass: I know that Fiona is a conniving, self-centered bitch. She was the one who killed most of the witches from the coven (my poor Nan), and if she ever committed a good deed, it was for her own personal purpose. But come on! When do we ever get an antagonist as good as her!?

Jessica Lange excelled in portraying this character. Fiona Goode is the Supreme, the most powerful of all witches. The Queen of the Witches. When the season begins, we find out our beloved bitch queen is dying, and throughout the season she tries to stop her unstoppable death. The only way is by killing the next Supreme since she is sucking the life out of Fiona. Not only do we see how conniving she is, but also how powerful.

I mean, who wouldn't swoon at a Jessica Lange killing a man with an ax? Ah, she needs to return to the show so bad.

2. Myrtle Snow

Myrtle Snow is another terrific example of a phenomenal woman in this show. Pretty much, this season was run by women. Isn't that amazing?!?

However, Myrtle was a sucker for dramatic one-liners and well-delivered screams directed at Fiona. And by now, we should know how much of a sucker I am for dramatics. When she scooped out the eyes out of the members of the council... I was struck with awe at how smoothly she played that scene. It must be my favorite.

Also, let's not forget how much of a fashion icon this woman was!

3. The Seven Wonders

In order to become the next Supreme, a witch must be able to complete all of the seven wonders. Not one less. Each one gets more difficult as the tests go on; the vitalum vitalis being the hardest of all the tests.

If you don't know what that is, that's a spell used to bring people back to life. Misty Day, a swamp witch, was the only one able to — including Fiona — bring people back to life without a hassle. But she couldn't make it past one of the tests and died.

I sometimes wish I had been this creative and had come with this concept myself, but if I had, then there would not have been an AHS Coven, to begin with. Ah, the dilemma.

4. Franken-Boyfriend

Imma lay this bare on the table: we ALL love Evan Peters. There, I said it. I finally got it off of my chest.

However, I believe his role in Coven is the most original of them all. Sure, all of his other characters are pretty three-dimensional and unordinary — but dying, ending in pieces, only to be built by two girls that chose parts of his friends and brought him back to life? Like, how do you even know how to act after that? Sure, Kyle was pretty much in a catatonic state until Fiona fixed the torques in his brain.

But playing a brutally confectioned boyfriend? Take all of my money.

5. Magic

So this show gave us some unique powers. Let's take Zoe's power, for example. She has a killer vagina— literally. If you have sex with her, you will be the one bleeding, not her. At least she knew how to put her power to good use in a scene in the show.

We've also got Winnie's power, who is a human voodoo doll. Ain't that cool? We've got clairvoyants, necromancers, telekinetic people, voodoo-users, you name it. And they also incorporated other horror elements into the storyline like ghosts, zombies, a demon, and even a minotaur. Can this show get any better?

Maybe this season was the only one that had a happy and satisfying ending, where, you know, not everybody ends up dead in the end.

But this was my short list of reasons for why I am correct and you are wrong. And if you still don't believe Coven to be the best season, fight me.

What Your Hogwarts House Says About You

Get yourself sorted and find out where you belong in the world of witchcraft and wizardry.

Sorting at Hogwarts is a big deal. Being sorted into a house is essentially being placed into a family while you are away from home learning about witchcraft and wizardry. Your house is made up of the people you will live with, go to classes with, play Quidditch with and everything in between. You basically spend 24/7 with them. Your Hogwarts house is your home away from home.

When you get sorted into a house, it is based on your personality traits. The people in your house are typically like-minded people who display the same characteristics as you.

When you’re a first year at Hogwarts, the minute you set foot in the castle you are swept into the Great Hall to have the ancient Sorting Hat placed on your head. This Sorting Hat decides which “family” you’ll be spending your seven years with.

For some, it is very obvious which house they will be in, due to certain personality traits they possess. For others, they may exemplify traits that fit a multitude of houses and are uncertain where they may end up.

To find out where you belong, you can take the official "Harry Potter" Sorting Hat quiz at For all you muggles out there, these are the characteristics that the houses possess and what your house says about you:

Gryffindor: The house of the brave, loyal, courageous, adventurous, daring and chivalrous. Those who stand up for others are typically Gryffindors. Brave-hearted is the most well-known Gryffindor characteristic, and Gryffindors are also known for having a lot of nerve.

Gryffindors are people who hold a multitude of qualities alongside the ones listed, making them a very well-rounded house. People who are Gryffindors are often people who could fit nicely into another house but choose to tell the sorting hat they want Gryffindor (there's that bravery). "Do what is right" is the motto Gryffindors go by.

Being a Gryffindor means that you're probably the adventurous and courageous friend, and you are usually known for doing what is right.

Ravenclaw: The house is known for their wisdom, intelligence, creativity, cleverness and knowledge. Those who value brains over brawn can be found here. Ravenclaws often tend to be quite quirky as well. "Do what is wise" is the motto they strive to follow.

Though Ravenclaws can be know-it-alls sometimes, they most likely do know what the wisest decision is.

If you are known for being the quirky friend, the smartest in the group or just great at making wise decisions, you're definitely a Ravenclaw.

Hufflepuff: This house values hard work, dedication, fair play, patience, and loyalty. Hufflepuff’s are known for being just and true. "Do what is nice" is their motto.

Hufflepuff is known as the “nice house” and believes strongly in sparing peoples feelings and being kind. This is not to say that Hufflepuffs aren't smart or courageous. Hufflepuffs just enjoy making others happy and tend to be more patient towards people.

If you ever find that you are too nice for your own good and cannot bear to hurt someone’s feelings, congratulations, you are a Hufflepuff.

Slytherin: This is the house of the cunning, prideful, resourceful, ambitious, intelligent, and determined. Slytherin's love to be in charge and crave leadership. "Do what is necessary" is the motto of this house.

Slytherin is a fairly well-rounded house, similar to the other houses. They are loyal to those that are loyal to them just as Gryffindors are and are intelligent as Ravenclaws.

Slytherin house as a whole is not evil, despite how many dark wizards come out of this house. That is merely based on the choices of those wizards (so if your friend is a Slytherin, don’t judge, it doesn’t mean they are mean people). Slytherins do, however, have a tendency to be arrogant or prideful. This is most likely due to the fact that everyone in Slytherin is exceedingly proud to be there.

What Hogwarts house you’re in says a lot about the person you are, the traits you possess and how you may act in some situations. But in the end, your house is really just your home that is always there for you. Always.

10 Places From Movies And TV You Can Visit In Real Life

It's like stepping into Hollywood!


I am constantly so enamored by the world of Hollywood and by going to visit places I have seen on screen. It's always such an unreal feeling to see where my favorite pieces of entertainment were shot. Here are 10 places from some of our favorite movies to see and visit in the real world!

The High School from "10 Things I Hate About You"

If you have ever wanted to dance on the same stairs as Heath Ledger or just stand in the same courtyard as Julia Stiles then you're in luck! Along the water in Tacoma, Washington, Stadium High School is located which was used both inside and out as the high school from one of the greatest teen movies of all time. This school is massive and so beautiful it's almost Hogwarts level stunning.

Pacific Coast Academy from  "Zoey 101"

Growing up I always dreamed about going to Pacific Coast Academy and being best friends with Jamie Lynn Spears and one of those things can (kinda) become a reality! Located in Malibu is a beautiful campus called Pepperdine University and it is the school they used to shoot scenes of Zoey and the gang at PCA. It is a christian based college and is prestigious in it's own right so if unlike me you are smart enough you can live out my dreams.

Central City Police Department from "The Flash"

Have you ever wanted to show up to Detective Joe West's place of work? Well head to the Vancouver City Hall in Vancouver, Canada and you will recognize your surroundings as the Central City Police Department! If you are lucky enough to show up on a filming day, you might even seen the man himself — Barry Allen.

Forks High School from The Twilight Saga

Personally, I am more invested in Bella and Jacob but for all my Team Edward ladies (and gentleman) you can visit the real-life school where Bella and Edward first met and their love blossomed into whatever obsessive weird thing it was. They also used the parking lot at this school to film the infamous scene where Edward saves Bella from getting crushed by a car. The school is called Kalama High School and is located in Kalama, Washington

Max And Dani's House from "Hocus Pocus"

Anyone with taste loves the movie Hocus Pocus — that's just facts! And I have some good news for fans of the can visit the infamous Denison house! Located in none other than Salem, Massachusetts you will find this beautiful home where my favorite siblings once lived.

Silent Hill from "Silent Hill"

I will say before talking about this place that visiting it is EXTREMELY dangerous as just like in the movie the town as been burning from below for years and years. This small town is called Centralia and is located Pennsylvania and has a roaring population of about four people.

Hobbiton from "Lord Of The Rings"

I am personally not a fan of Lord of the Rings but I know a lot of people are so I wanted to include this super cool place on the list. If you ever find yourself in New Zealand you can visit Hobbinton from the movies and spend a day living like your favorite characters.

Platform 9 3/4 from the Harry Potter Series

Now this place will unfortunately be packed with muggles of course but you can find it at King's Cross Station in London! If you are anything like me and are obsessed with these magical movies this is a dream destination just don't run too hard at the wall if you're a muggle it will probably end in a concussion.

East High from the High School Musical Saga

Located in Salt Lake City Utah is the real life East High that was used in the filming of all three High School Musical movies. It is my absolute dream to attend this high school and walk the halls of the greatest high school of all time. They used both the outside and inside and the school so every inch of the school will remind you of these great teen movies.

Gus and Hazel's Bench from "The Fault in Our Stars" 

If you ever wanted to visit the site of this kiss between star crossed lovers you're in luck! Located along a canal in Amsterdam is a bench that is clearly marked by all the fault in our stars graffiti. Recreate this cute picture with your significant other and use a quote from the movie — then you'll just win in life.
