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!

MODELED AFTER asheathes's WIZARDING SCHOOLS AROUND THE WORLD

THE SCHOOL OF ONE THOUSAND NAMES:
In addition to the five static schools of witchcraft and wizardry on the North American continent, there is another school which has catered to students for thousands of years. It has no name and no location: some years the patchwork band of longhouses, teepees, and kivas appears in the Pacific Northwest; other years it sits on the tear-stained earth of Oklahoma; some years it resides in Canada or the upper reaches of  Alaska (a bit of a challenge for students from arid desert regions). The teachers come from the Salish, the Cherokee, the Navajo, the Iroquois, the Chippewa, and hundreds of other indigenous tribes. Rather than separate into houses, the students maintain their tribal ties: there’s no small amount of friction between different nations with historic feuds. The school has a legendary reputation for record-keeping and cultural preservation; students are also at the forefront of magical innovation, constantly searching for new answers to age-old questions (such as magic use in major urban areas). Wandless magic is common, but even more common is the process of creating one’s own wand: an elaborate ceremony that varies depending on tribal origin. It is considered a great privilege to collect a wand core from a mythical beast.Every summer there are huge celebrations combining dance and magic: families travel from all over the world to join their children at the school.

Muggleborn students at Hogwarts (part 1/?)

This is beautiful.

Forever reblog because this is fucking wonderful.

toelsweyr:

fyi the post that’s going around captioned “emma watson’s response to the nude photo leak threats” (or any variation thereof) of her showing her breasts isn’t real

it’s a photoshop of this picture she did for mariano vivanco and by reblogging that post you’re violating her just as much as the rest of the creeps threatening to release nude pictures of her

thanks, bye

quiet-knives:

PSA: because I keep seeing that shitty manipulated photo of Emma Watson on my dash. THAT PHOTO WAS PHOTOSHOPPED.  The original photo (with another from the same shoot, is from 2011 with Mariano Vivanco) are pictured above. Please don’t perpetuate this error. 

Deliberately spreading an altered image of Emma Watson which purports to show her breasts as a statement against threats of nude photo leaks is the height of hypocrisy and whoever did it should be ashamed. (x)

Ravenclaw: Do it once you’ve gathered enough relevant information.
Hufflepuff: Do it with integrity.
Slytherin: Do it on your own terms.
Gryffindor: Do it for the vine.

This makes me so emotional. Mrs Weasley knew the Dursleys wouldn’t visit and that Harry’s got no other family and to hER HES PRACTICALLY HER SON SOMEONE HOLD ME

WIZARDING SCHOOLS AROUND THE WORLD: SALEM

Originally an all-girl school, the Salem Witches’ Institute opened its doors to wizards at the turn of the 20th century. Contrary to popular belief, there are no lingering ghosts from the Salem witch trials on campus or in the city because none of the convicted were actual magic folks; despite this, the magical community remains wary of muggle attention. Classes at the institute are therefore located all over the city in different buildings which are only accessible at certain times of the day, and can only be entered through magical means. The same door that leads to a coffee shop, for example, would also serve as the entrance to the school library for the students who know the correct password and hopes to access the building during its operational hours. For this reason, the institute refrains from implementing strict uniform policies, which stands in stark contrast to the very formal dressing practices of the Preparatory Academy of Magic in Louisiana. Every year during Hallowe’en, students like to crash house parties and perform simple spells to get a kick out of the bewilderment of muggles.

You know Harry’s a pretty humble guy but you can bet your ass he brags all the fucking time about his friends and family. He probably does it every time someone tries to talk to him about his accomplishments. Like “oh my gosh, you’re Harry Potter-” “yeah I am but have you heard about my sister in law Hermione? She was just featured in Witch weekly as number one in top 30 witches under 30 for her work regarding magical creatures rights” “How does it feel to be the Departments youngest ever head auror?” “I mean it feels like any other job, but did you hear about my wife getting first string for england’s world cup team this year?” “how-” “do you want to see pictures of my kids? my youngest just started Hogwarts. another slytherin but we couldn’t be prouder. she’s going to take the world by storm.”

Like super proud and supportive of his family Harry

WIZARDING SCHOOLS AROUND THE WORLD: SOUTH KOREA

Although the South Korean Institute for the Art of Spellcraft hosts its pupils in a rather traditional environment of palaces and pavilions on a secluded island in the Korea Strait, the student population has integrated technology so impressively into their learnings that the school is one of the most technologically advanced of this generation. The campus boasts many gardens and lotus ponds; occasionally, if you look close enough, you will see eyes staring back at you. The students are impeccably polite and respectful in the public eye, but as soon as they escape professor supervision, they take to hosting late night parties and executing extravagantly planned (but subtle) pranks. During the Lotus Lantern Festival, an abundance of lanterns are released into the sky with a glow so bright that muggles often pause in confusion to observe the curious glimmer of light reflected on the water despite utter darkness blanketing the strait.

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
