goblin rebellions

UUUUHH…Boron is about to become the leader of a communist goblin rebellion???? didn’t see that one coming 

also I feel silly, because i like this character enough that I want to do something with them outside of DnD…so I’m writing a trench story, but its a ROMANCE STORY??? 

so during the campaign…Boron will be a super serious and intense leader of a communist uprising…and then also…the main character of a gushy, squishy romance story about trenches learning about love for the first time. perfect.

  • Dumbledore: I was so upset when my grandpa died.
  • Elphias: How'd he die?
  • Dumbledore: The Goblin Rebellion.
  • Elphias: Died in battle?
  • Dumbledore: No, he had a heart attack. It was just during the Goblin Rebellion.
Teddy Lupin Headcanons
  • It was fifth year when Teddy started leading the History of Magic study groups. It started out as Hufflepuff thing; but it soon grew to include every house. On Friday evenings, fifth year Teddy even leads a N.E.W.T.s review group.
  • When the Hufflepuffs started acing all the tests, surpassing even most of the Ravenclaw scores, students started asking for answers.
  • The Hufflepuffs, being Hufflepuffs, moved their study group to the library and welcomed the Ravenclaws with open arms. Soon, the Gryffindors and Slytherins come looking for answers too. 
  • The answer was Teddy. You see, as the child of both Remus Lupin (easily Hogwarts best DADA teacher for decades) and Tonks (metamorphmagus extraordinaire) teaching others in a memorable way was second nature to the blue-haired teen. 
  • You see, Teddy morphs when he leads the study group. He’ll change into a goblin to talk about the goblin rebellions, or a giant when explaining the giant wars, or Emeric the Evil and talk about “his” achievements.
  • Teddy always paid attention in History of Magic, having even as a first year, known the possibility of the class for being absolutely amazing.
  • Soon, the practice O.W.L. and the N.E.W.T. scores started rising. Even the teachers started getting curious and soon found out about Teddy. 
  • Professor Sprout talks to Teddy about what it takes to become a professor (”Binns would never leave, Professor.” “Oh, don’t worry about that dear. We’ve always been able to persuade him to leave, there’s just never been a reason before now. Have a sweet, Teddy dear.”), and he enrolls in the N.E.W.T.s classes.
  • Of course he does well, eventually ‘co-teaching’ classes for Binns by his seventh year. The end of year tests that year are better than they have been in decades. 
  • Teddy takes a year off, traveling to different historical magic sites, learning from the indigenous magic users of the area. Once back at Hogwarts, he revitalizes the History of Magic program. Teddy adds things from all the places and cultures he met, changing the course from the ‘European’ history of magic class it had been, to a true History of Magic class.
  • Like this father before him, Teddy quickly becomes one of Hogwart’s favorite teachers (and is Neville’s main competition for the title). Test scores have never been higher and when Sprout retires, Teddy humbly accepts.
  • Remus and Tonks have never been prouder as they watch over their son become his own person. Their only wish is that he would know how incredibly proud they are.

part one of a series set in hogwarts (the same au as namjoon’s)

posting this for th grandpa’s birthday ;(  i love u min yoongi, jibangi grandpa, the softest rapper to rap ;(  캡짱!!!

edit: i’m reposting this because of an issue with it not showing up in tags, hopefully it will do so this time!

The silence in the Prefects’ common room is broken only by the scratching of your quill against the yellowing parchment. You’ve always preferred studying here over the Ravenclaw common room, ever since you’d gotten your badge last year. The absence of your loud housemates probably did the trick, you think, as you hunt through your notes for a specific piece of information. You’re searching for the section you’ve dedicated to the Goblin Rebellions of 1723, when you hear the door creak open. One of the Slytherin prefects, Yoongi, walks in with his general air of regality. He spots you in your corner and acknowledges you with a nod, but doesn’t say anything even as you nod back.

Eight Days (Part 2/10)

Hahahaaaa remember when I said this was almost done three weeks ago? Laughs jokes liesss.(Though on the bright side–now five parts, eh??)

Here is part two, in all its over-written glory. I reserve the right to go back in and tweak this as needed because I know it’s a bit much but I can’t stare at it anymore. I’m pretty sure I’m making it worse.

Link to: PART 1 + PART 3 + PART 4  + PART 5

True to promise, The Cornish Pixie is the most properly dodgy dive bar James has encountered in ages. With paint peeling off the walls, rickety stools lining the few shabby wooden tables left standing, and a handful of aging bar-huggers who appear as if they may have very well first hunkered down for a pint around the time of the 1472 Goblin Rebellion, the locale delivers on all counts. James feels at once delighted, and vaguely in danger.

Though frankly, he feels decidedly more in danger when he inquires—politely, one last time—for Lily Evans, Jr. Quidditch Correspondent, to explain how her equally dodgy recording contraption works.

(Admittedly, it is the fourth time he’s asked.)

(Hardly his fault though, is it? The ruddy thing was wonky as hell, and who knew someone could look so bloody gorgeous while also looking so bloody homicidal?)

(Proper distracting, that. On several levels.)

“You’re not serious,” is what she says, with the look that adds, I may kill you if you are.

ideas to continue the HP craze without compromising its original story and characters
  • A history channel style documentary where each episode talks about a different subject and each season is a different wizarding culture. Season 1. Japan. Episode 1. The Founding of Mahoutokoro. Episode 2. Their magical robes and why the rest of the world didn’t incorporate a similar system. ETC.
  • History of Magic online classroom/videos ; Professor Binns Or maybe a Bagshot can tell us all about the Goblin Rebellion and what happened at the International Warlock Convention of 1289.
  • A political drama series set in the Ministry of Magic, preferably not during LVs second rise to power but maybe his first, with only small cameos from the likes of the Order Members that we know. Like, give me Dorcas Meadows and the Prewett brothers instead, maybe touch on Crouch’s frustrations that eventually lead to him allowing unforgivables to be used. Maybe just not during LV or the Trios time at all.
  • MoM/MACUSA Elite Force action type show (seriously why didn’t they actually make this a thing)
  • Netflix Dramedy about Wendelin the Weird and the Salem Trials and how continuously getting caught probably kept the hunt going for longer than it would’ve otherwise so she inadvertently caused a lot of muggles to die and how will she handle that?
  • Plz Add. but nothing about the marauders. or any original characters from the story because that can compromise them

Hogwarts subjects // Core classes (5/7) // History of Magic.

History of Magic is a core class and subject taught at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. This class is a study of magical history. This is one of the subjects where the use of magic practically isn’t necessary.The lesson plan usually consists of lectures on the ‘History of Wizards and the Magical World’ (in which goblin rebellions appear most memorably). This class is similar to the study of History in the Muggle World, as particular emphasis is placed upon remembering dates, names and events.

Tiny People In Jars AUs

(specifically for Strange Magic)

Turn someone from the main cast into a human entomologist, or plain insect collector, and have them collect someone else. Possible courses of plot include a rescue mission by others, and/or the principals figuring out a way to communicate and finding an accord.

  • Marianne catching Bog, who is understandably grumpy and causes minor damage. Possibly inept rescue attempts from not very well coordinated goblins, or possibly a rebellion. But something is worked out eventually?
  • Human Roland and Marianne (or Bog or someone else) having disagreements about importance of nature preservation, and if that fascinating new specimen should be kept alive and released after a lot of photos, or killed and preserved.
  • Sunny catching Dawn, but making friends with her just in time for her to stop the fairy army from overrunning him, Gulliver-style.
  • Eccentric Aura Plum set on catching fairies or goblins to prove that she is NOT crazy and these creatures REALLY exist, she will SHOW THOSE FOOLS, AHAHAHAHA!!!
  • etc.

Human fantasy AU: Bog as human sorcerer who studies fairies and captures Dawn for (mago)science.

All(?) canon characters as they are, humans start getting nosy/scientiffically interested in the wildlife in that Strange neck of the woods. Some of the small folks get captured, others mount a rescue mission.

Bonus-thing-that-doesn’t-quite-fit: Bog and Marianne hunt down Roland until he reaches a beach. A humungous Beast pounces him, lets him go when pricked with his sword. A somewhat smaller beast says “Toothless, if the shiny bug bites you, leave it alone”. Marianne and Bog have to decide if they leave Roland to whatever, or if letting that slimy manipulator talk to a giant is too risky.

Nita stared at the pages of her textbook but her mind wouldn’t absorb a single word. Why did she drop Potions? History of Magic was probably the single most tiresome class ever. Who cared about the Giant Wars? Who really wanted to talk about the Goblin Rebellion? Then she thought about Professor Pace. That was why she dropped Potions this year. She wanted to spend her last year at Hogwarts Pace Free.

But it was at the expense of her sanity. She put the textbook flat on the table and pressed the pages down. With a sigh, she peered outside as it rained. Oh, how she wished she could be outside reading the torturous text. “Bloody History of Magic…” She grumbled under her breath before laying her forehead against the text and pretending to melt into the pages.

I stayed up all night on a high of Twizzlers and hot chocolate watching the Pokemon anime. And I have to say, if I was a Pokemon it’d totally be a Haunter. I’m like a dead ringer for the one they come across at the Pokemon Tower and use to defeat Sabrina by making her laugh, scary and silly all at the same time.

On the downside, I was such a zombie this morning that I fell asleep during History of Magic and when Professor Rogers woke me up by asking me about the goblin rebellions, I got scared and yelled “Pikachu, attack!” and I now have detention.
