This blog was created to keep the magic alive, long after the movies and books are over. I try to post things that show Harry Potter being applied to real life with lessons and jokes and stories. Enjoy!

   student(s) out of bed



October arrived, spreading a damp chill over the grounds and into the castle. Madam Pomfrey, the nurse, was kept busy by a sudden spate of colds among the staff and students. Raindrops the size of bullets thundered on the castle windows for days on end; the lake rose, the flower beds turned into muddy streams, and Hagrid’s pumpkins swelled to the size of garden sheds.

MODERN MARAUDERS PLUS GOING TO DISNEY WORLD

marilynhanson:

i’ve never been to disney world it’s a fucking tragedy tbh but general theme park / carnivaly stuff:

  • sirius likes the spinny rides i know this deep in my heart
  • james n sirius like the Good roller coasters and they would give peter a harder time about not riding them but he holds their stuff while they ride so it’s acceptable
  • james n sirius think they’re Real Damn Tough
  • but if the ferris wheel stops at the top remus and lily start rocking it back and forth really hard
  • james n sirius are Not Tough At All who knew two grown boys could sound so /squeaky/ when screaming
  • peter’s kinda a ride wimp but he’s rly good at like carnival game type things
  • whereas james spends 40 bucks trying to win a teddy bear holding a heart that says “i love you beary much” 
  • lily says he’s an idiot bc she would never accept such a thing but he was going to give it to sirius duh
  • remus wants to make Plans about when to do what b/c he’s a nerd who strategizes around shortest line times
  • sirius and james promptly ignore his suggestions and go with their Instincts which usually means getting lost or waiting an hour and remus is just like “hmmmmm wonder how we could’ve avoided this” 
  • "THIS IS PART OF THE ADVENTURE" 
  • "COLOR-CODE THIS LUPIN" [flips bird]
  • peter doesn’t rly care he just loves The Atmosphere and the Food
  • more of a fair thing i guess but:
  • MARAUDERS + BUMPER CARS

Harry Potter: Re-imagined 

-Harry Potter

-Ron Weasley

-Hermione Granger

I am legitimately okay with this and suddenly wish there were no movies in the first place so that more posts like this could exist. So that more people would look at the basic context clues IN the books and imagine things like this.

“Are you sure that’s a real spell?” said the girl. “Well, it’s not very good, is it? I’ve tried a few simple spells just for practice and it’s all worked for me. Nobody in my family’s magic at all, it was ever such a surprise when I got my letter, but I was ever so pleased, of course, I mean, it’s the very best school of witchcraft there is, I’ve heard – I’ve learned all our course books by heart, of course, I just hope it will be enough — I’m Hermione Granger, by the way, who are you?

WIZARDING SCHOOLS AROUND THE WORLD: SOUTH AFRICA

Clinging haphazardly to the jagged sides of the Drakensberg escarpment, the South African Institute for Witches and Wizards is an impressive conglomeration of architectural wonder and eccentric contraptions that keep the sprawling institute welded to the steep slopes of the mountains. Many say roaming the institute is an arduous test of one’s stamina as the primarily vertical layout of the institute relies on a plethora of stairs to navigate (luckily it has gotten better after the restriction on the indoor use of broomsticks was lifted). Over centuries, many pockets of shallow caves have been dug out and furnished by students who like to spend their free time observing the vast landscape before them from high up in the mountainside. The student population supplies much of the profits for Mava’s Zoomtastic Glasses, which is a popular accessory for observing the abundance of wildlife that roam the lands.

WIZARDING SCHOOLS AROUND THE WORLD: MEXICO

Disguised as a Mayan ruin in the jungles of Chiapas, the Mexican School for Enriched Magical Studies is a sturdy moss-covered structure blanketed by lush greenery. The students are no strangers to muggle tourists ambling about, and will often pose as fellow tourists or locals and interact with them, making them one of the most outgoing, lively, and tolerant communities in the wizarding world. For festivals, students like to don colourful headdresses, and the school becomes a kaleidoscope of colour as girls twirl like tops and their skirts lift up into the air, filling empty space with colour and painting the school with embellished splendour. The campus often reverberates with music from the school’s ghost mariachi band who plays cheerfully day and night; it tends to get annoying, but it feels like home.

HP Goblet of Fire Headcanon: Beauxbatons was primarily a Muslim wizarding school.

(photo from livesandliesofwizards, which was the first thing I thought of when I ran into this passage while rereading the Harry Potter books)

(and yes I know the horses drink whisky, which is not exactly halal, sshhh)

Its was french. It s
Was so clearly french.

Literally French. …….

….
.

Because French Muslims do not exist and no Muslims ever speak French and Muslim schools don’t exist in France and if they do they must be really shitty and there are no key Muslim educators in France at all and there’s never been any history of Islamic culture and politics in the Pottermore-confirmed Pyreenes, nooooooo, it is très impossible! Astagfirrulah!

except…NO.

learn some fuckin’ social studies and history and current affairs, people.
