Okay so if Hogwarts is the wizarding school of the United Kingdom then logically Ilvermorny can't be the only American school because it would be too big. There would have to be three (Ilvermorny for the east coast, a west coast like in Seattle, and a south probably in Texas) at least to cover the population. Does that make sense? I just don't think, with americas size and population, ilvermorny would be the only school or prestigious school in the country.

Yeah I mean Hogwarts is deceptively small though. Assuming Harry’s year is small because they were born in war time there’s probably no more than 500 students there at any time which is not large for a school. So there’s probably around 2500 wizard kids of secondary school age in the US which would be impractical to fit into one school but it could be done

But I agree that there’d be more than one school, for cultural reasons if nothing else

I’m not American, but the USA is huge and there seem to be vast cultural differences depending on what region you’re from and I’m sure that’d translate into the wizarding education system- maybe a Native American school focusing on plant based magic, or a school in New Orleans that looks more at African magic?

I’m still not sold on Ilvermorny tbh. It feels a little like ‘well Americans want to go to Hogwarts so we’ll make a carbon copy but just stick it in the states’

Why is there a castle??? Unless we’re counting disney world castles aren’t really a thing in America. And the house system?? I get it it’s nice that Americans can associate themselves with this community but like… that’s also not a thing in the states right? And do you have boarding schools? 

It’s just weird to me that they’ve taken these quintessentially British things and stuck them in a school in America because people now associate them with magic

I’d much rather see a something like a wizard high school! Something that Americans can actually relate to because isn’t that the point of Ilvermorny- it’s giving the American fans a chance to see what their own Harry Potter experience would be like and by making it almost as unrelatable as Hogwarts I feel like they’re missing out on something

I see a lot of posts encouraging babies to be these super sexy seductresses.

You don’t have to.

Just be yourself (or whatever persona you’ve created). Personally, I can’t do super sexy and seductive. It feels weird and the men can tell. In my vanilla life I am loud and my voice is high pitched. I talk too much and I’m a little awkward. This is how I am with my POT (toned down a little, obviously. I go for a soft, quieter voice, but still ramble. I’m still awkward but I make a joke out of it and say things like, “sorry. I get a little awkward when I’m nervous around such a handsome man!). And you know what? They eat that shit up. They love that I’m this bumbling, bubbly, innocent young woman. That works for me.

Being sexy and seductive works for some women. Everyone is different and everyone has different preferences. My biggest tip is do not try to be someone you absolutely are not. It will be super obvious and you won’t have a good time.

“Nothing helps, does it?”
“Of course you don’t answer. Because you’re DEAD.”
“You’re both dirty birds, and I’m gonna hurt you, real, real bad.”
“Yes, I’m upset. Yes, I’m behind the wheel. Yes I’m drunk, and maybe my license isn’t the fancy kind from the DMV, but at least I’m drunk!”
“Okay, I’ve seen some seriously disturbing stuff recently, but you are adorable.”
“Sorry ____, you played right into my hand.”

“Oh, I’ll be polite. Right up until I’m rude.”

You know that thing going around tumblr where humans are the weird ones in all of space and maybe aliens would think we were resilient and incredible or adorable on days when I have nothing to be proud of I like to read those posts and stories and pretend that in the vast cosmos amidst untold wonders humanity is admired for being creative and kind and resilient and good and it makes me feel good about being human like it’s okay if I didn’t do that good today because I’m still human and so I’m inherently amazing idk it makes me really happy

yesterday i was 24, and today i am 25

2016 was a hard year for very many people, i always felt a bit guilty because it was actually very good to me. did something good happen to you? i hope so. please share with me if you wish!

it feels weird, i started posting on tumblr when i was 19 and didn’t know anything, now i still don’t know anything but people ask me for advice and help. that means a lot to me. thank you for putting your trust in me! i will try to keep doing my best.

thank you all so very much for your continued support, whether you just started following 10 minutes ago or 10 years ago (!!!), it is really a joy to get to share my work with you guys, i hope my art makes you happy sometimes.

Here are some detail photos of those stickers I bought of @brontide-art’s art if anybody else is interested in buying their stickers! This is a set in large :0

Because of an exchange I had with @pilferingapples, I’ve decided to do a series of drawings for a modern au where everybody is still wearing canon era fashion for no apparent reason. Because.

Starting with Courfeyrac wearing one of the first things (and, in my opinion, one of the best) that popped into my head for this idea: pride waistcoats. Though I mostly just wanted to draw rainbows, to be honest.

VIXX-OTPS has reached its third year and has achieved 20,110+ followers! I hope you all enjoyed the 15-day countdown this year and thank you very much for these 3 years! ♥ I hope we would be able to celebrate again next year~

- howzit kids!!!!
- the future is weird and spooky huh??? ? no matter how cool i am with where i am, i still find time to sorta worry about it
- at the minute i’m v happy studying, and my plans for heading back to australia in june are just: return to my casual job, walk my dogs, make comics, do nanowrimo, go to some cons. and right now??? i feel very strongly that that will be enough, at least for this year
- but then also i know my own restless ass and i know that maybe it won’t be
- i really hope it will be
- walked around viborg’s south lake today, it was pretty and cold and it’s odd how the world can feel both enormous and tiny some days
- i’m one of the youngest people that i’ve met here, which is a sort of sobering thought. gotta remember there’s no hurry. life’s really long, ya know?
- i’m learning to love what a work in progress everything we do in class is: there’s no finished product, just the act of making. it’s a really good way to be
- my art is improving in a way i didn’t think i’d notice in three weeks, which is pretty great. i want to dedicate this year to making stuff i like, and that maybe other people will too. i really love drawing it makes me happy happy happy 
- i hope you’re all good, if you can, slow down for a minute today

I am well aware that this is very late, that people have already posted about this, and that these guys were already added to the gacha, but listen, it feels weird not making an announcement about a whole new series being added on this blog. also blame the hesokuri wars twitter for announcing this at the most inconvenient time for me (read: when I was still asleep) and for being so last-minute with it.

it’s the magical series!! and they’re going to be added… well, they already are added. so while you focus on the campaign focusing on the takeover of hijirisawa shitnosuke and his equally shitty brothers, make sure to try your best to get these guys! they’re in a limited-time gacha with the percentage up, so make sure to save up your diamonds!

about roleplaying my characters-small psa!

HI this hasnt happened yet (to my knowledge…) but a few people have asked so i figured i’d just make a post to address it and also add it to my faq later

i’d really prefer if people don’t make roleplay blogs or roleplay my characters!! yes, they might be in a comic you like and stuff but they’re still my personal characters! you’d probably feel kinda weird if someone was roleplaying your oc behind your back, right?? yeah…

so pls dont!! thank you!! 👍🏾
