WIZARDING SCHOOLS AROUND THE WORLD: THE CARIBBEANThe magic folk of the Caribbean are nothing if not ambitious. Raising an unplottable island out of the ocean, they retreated to their paradisiacal land whereupon they built a school of magic to pass on their knowledge. Over time, the island grew crowded, and the magical community moved away, but the school remained in operation. Surrounded by a vast blue stretch of water, students must travel via large sentient sailing ships that have been magicked to operate independently (an extremely useful enchantment during the era of piracy as the ships knew to avoid danger). In the waters surrounding the school swims an unnaturally large barracuda with magical scales that can be used as wand cores, but only when it is given willingly. There are many classes dedicated to spice magic, and foreign visitors often say the school carries a distinct aroma akin to a legion of chefs who never stop cooking. Cinnamon for friendship, ginger root for courage and strength, red chillies can fight evil or cause destruction… it becomes the unofficial anthem of the students over time because the chant aids greatly during the multitude of spice-reading exams conducted throughout the school year.
I almost had it all again.

This is something I’ve mentioned before on Twitter, but I’m thinking about it again: what do y’all think breakups are like in the Wizarding World? Like imagine throwing hexes at each other during the initial blowup, making it to where their owls can no longer deliver mail to you, putting completely unnecessary wards around your house out of spite so they can’t come back and get their stuff they left behind, missing them one night after a few shots of firewhisky and sending a slightly drunken patronus at 3 am.

Confused, drunk Sirius wanting to have a chat with James and requesting to Remus, “Bring me my Jame.” “James, Sirius.” “No, only that one.”
Put your nostalgia shoes on and take a trip down memory lane with this (mostly instrumental) playlist of music from all the Harry Potter films so many of us hold dear to our hearts. Let me know if there’s any problems xo (listen)

If you want to know what a man’s like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals.
Harry Potter movie AU where Harry and Ginny actually have chemistry.
Ok, so…does anyone else think about the fact that JK had to take away Lily and James’s wands in order for Voldemort to kill them?
Like if they had their wands, that snake-eyed bastard wouldn’t have stood a chance?
Why is it always “Dumbledore is my fave” or “Dumbledore is abusive” and never “Dumbledore is so fucking afraid of letting another dark wizard come to power that he channels his own darkness into training a human weapon from childhood to fight the darkness that he knows he can’t while pretending to be the wise wizard mentor that he wishes he actually was wow that is a super fascinating character and we should write all the fanfiction about it?”
