Tsar Nicholas II of Russia and Tsarina Alexandra Feodorovna with their first child, Grand Duchess Olga Nikolaevna, 1896.
The imperial couple were utterly delighted with their daughter. The Romanov family was typically overrun with sons (Alexander II and Tsarina Maria Alexandrovna had six sons and only one surviving daughter) so girls were often doted on, if not outright spoiled. Tsarina Alexandra was intent on breastfeeding baby Olga herself, a practice which was still growing in popularity among upper class mothers. Olga remained in her mother’s private apartments for several weeks until she was established in the upstairs nursery, but then received constant visits from her parents. The young Tsar thoroughly enjoyed fatherhood. In his diary entries from Olga’s first months Nicholas talks of bathing, dressing, and helping to feed his daughter. Such was the their attachment to their first baby that when the time came for the Tsar and Tsarina to make a state visit to France and England in 1896 they insisted on taking Olga with them and had a nursery set up for the infant Grand Duchess in the imperial train.
Naruto’s popsicle attempts to summon Cthulhu, and Iruka is understandably alarmed.
…did Iruka just fart?
You didn’t have to point that out to everyone, sound effects dude. Why you gotta play him like that, this is a serious moment. An Elder God might burst from the ground in search of frozen sugar water at any time.
muggleborns that have been using sign language growing up and suddenly there are all these things they don’t know how to describe
and so naturally, being a ravenclaw, they spend ages creating these unique signs for everything magical
and they’re dorm mates love it because it’s like having their own secret language and they love using it in front of people who can’t understand what they’re talking about
they manage to persuade the rest of the quidditch team to learn as well because it’s really difficult to shout across a quidditch pitch and now the captain can give everyone instructions even when play is on
also mute ravenclaws would ace non-verbal spells can you even imagine
snape would get so sarky about it and they’d just shrug because they’ve had to learn this shit since first year
and their wand movements are always impeccable because they’ve had to make up for not being able to say the incantations by making everything else as perfect as possible
first year was spent thinking they’re a really crap wizard because they couldn’t get any of the spells to work without incantations but they can’t help it
and eventually they hear about the patronus charm from some of the older years
they realise that all spells can benefit from having that kind of emotion behind them and suddenly they start to ace all their classes and flitwick and mcgonagall in particular are just so fucking proud
all the other kids want to know how they improved so much
and everyone is severely unimpressed with the answer ‘you just need to feel that magic’ because WHAT DOES THAT MEAN ????
and the mute ravenclaw just smiles and laughs at how rigid some people can be when it comes to magic
