it's weird because it's a cover

anonymous asked:

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

Ten Things Jellal Loves About Erza’s Hair (the NSFW edition)

rating: M
summary: Simply, ten things Jellal loves about Erza’s hair. Jerza. Smut.
 ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ What more can I say.
also: on Fanfiction
note 1: Originally this was just going to be a list. Just a list. An innocent list. Then words happened. They went one way despite the fact that I was trying to go another, and so this mess happened. Of course. Of fucking course.
note 2: I thought I wasn’t going to write smut ever again. Ever. Now look what happened. Of course. Of fucking course.

Her hair is the first thing that falls when she pulls the large white night-time t-shirt over her head.

It’s early morning, and she’s convinced this is a better form of exercise than whatever he was planning at the gym—“Ugh, it’s leg day,” he tells her, kissing her on the forehead before rolling over to leave. She grabs him by the wrist and tells him, “No, it’s Erza day.”—and who was he to skip on Erza for squats?

LOGGING REALITY SO I DON’T LOSE IT THIS TIME

1) THERE’S A HOUSE DOWN THE STREET THAT IS FOR SALE, AND ON A WALK YESTERDAY I OBSERVED THAT ITS WALLS WERE NO LONGER QUITE AT RIGHT ANGLES TO THE GROUND! TIPPING OVER A LITTLE. BY MAKING THIS POST I AM CURSING MYSELF TO DAD BUYING THIS FUCKING HOUSE.

2) ON THAT SAME WALK I SAW THE BROWNEST CAT EVER, LIKE THAT SERIOUS RED-BROWN SHADE YOU DON’T NORMALLY SEE ON CATS THAT LOOKS KIND OF PHOTOSHOPPED? BUT I FELT WEIRD PHOTOGRAPHING IT BECAUSE IT WAS IN THE WINDOW OF ITS HOUSE, FROWNING AT ME

3) I DID HOWEVER TAKE A PICTURE OF THE CAR WITH THE REAR WINDOW ENTIRELY COVERED WITH STAR WARS DECALS (PROBABLY ILLEGAL?), WHICH WAS PARKED AT THE POKE STOP OUTSIDE THE LIBRARY

4) THERE ARE TWO COMPETING PHOTOGRAPHY STUDIOS ACROSS THE STREET FROM ONE ANOTHER; ONE HAS BIG WINDOWS AND PROPS, ONE HAS NO WINDOWS AND LOOKS LIKE IT MIGHT ACTUALLY BE IN THE SEWER.

5) I DIDN’T GO FOR A WALK TODAY, I WAS TOO HECKED-UP DUE TO TEGRETOL SIDE EFFECTS INCLUDING: DIZZINESS, GROGGINESS, IMPAIRED MOTOR FUNCTION, “SADNESS”

6) BUT I NEEDED Q-TIPS SO I GOT IN THE CAR ANYWAY, STOPPED IN GOODWILL AND ENDED UP BUYING A KITCHEN TABLE AND 2 CHAIRS FOR $30 (ALONG WITH THE AFOREMENTIONED ITEMS DROPPED OFF BY AN EVIL WIZARD’S EX). I’D BEEN CONSIDERING TAKING ONE OF MOM AND DAD’S SEVERAL UNUSED TABLES BUT THIS IS PROBABLY SANER, THOSE THINGS ARE VERY OLD AND HEAVY AND GROSS IMBUED WITH BAD ANIMAL FLUIDS

7) OH AND ALSO I GOT SOME NON-CURSED ACTUALLY-NICE TEACUPS AND SAUCERS, “Dansk Tivoli Belles Fleurs (Taupe)” PATTERN “FINE CHINA”, EXCEPT THEY’RE “FACTORY REJECTS” DUE TO SOME LIKE MINISCULE FLECKS IN THE GLAZE. I’M PRETTY SURE THEY WERE NEVER ACTUALLY USED, THERE WERE STILL PRICE TAGS FROM A FACTORY OUTLET AND SOME WASHABLE-RED-MARKER MARKS GIVING THEM “X” GRADES ON THEM? AND THEY ARE THE ABSOLUTE STURDIEST-FEELING “FINE CHINA” I’VE EVER ENCOUNTERED, I AM MUCH LESS AFRAID OF BREAKING THESE THINGS THAN OF MY OLD TEACUPS. GOOD THRIFT STORE TRIP TODAY, BASICALLY.

8) I DID IN FACT MAKE THAT CHICKEN SOUP I WAS YELLING ABOUT DAY-BEFORE-YESTERDAY, BUT BY THE TIME IT WAS DONE THE NEXT MORNING (SLOW-COOKER) I WAS INCREDIBLY DEPRESSED AND AWAKENING IN THIS STATE TO THE SMELL OF THE SOUP WAITING IN THE OTHER ROOM INFECTED THE SOUP WITH MY DOLOR, SO NOW IT’S KIND OF HARD TO EAT IT

9) MAYBE IF I DUMPED SOME SRIRACHA IN THERE? HONESTLY I USED TOO MUCH OIL WHEN I FRIED THE ONIONS IS PROBABLY THE REAL PROBLEM

10) I FEEL BASICALLY LIKE SHIT AND I REALLY REALLY DO NOT THINK THE TEGRETOL IS GOING TO WORK OUT

Imagine a first contact scenario for some poor, unprepared investigator of a Lovecraftian horror style. He’s just activated some mysterious ancient machine which opens a portal, and through that portal comes some fifteen-foot conical creature with lots of wiggling tentacle arms and no obvious head, just bulges on its top, and a couple of its tentacles just flop on the side bonelessly like they were half-discarded snake skins, and through it all this creepy high-pitched screechy noise, and the poor investigator has a horrible fright and begins to question his own sanity…

… while the alien was in the process of putting on a sweater when the portal in its living room equivalent suddenly went on and he sort of stumbled through it, and it still hasn’t managed to pull the thing on properly and his head is covered with it and he can’t see and this place smells weird and where is that arm hole in this sodding sweater anyway? and the creature just complains under its breath in this high-pitched whine because he doesn’t even realize there’s someone else in the same room.

BLACKOUT Day Selfies!

Weird tan across my boobs from the sundress I wore aside, this is a special post for me because these are all no Makeup-Foundation pics. Because guess what? Imperfect Black Skin is still beautiful. Acne, stretchmarks and hyperpigmentation it’s normal on Black skin too. You don’t have to have perfect, uniform skin to be a Black and Beautiful. I usually cover up acne scars on my face with makeup when you all see it but why do that today?

I also want to draw attention to the last three pictures because I pulled my hair up for a reason. See that pic up there where I’m holding four fingers?? BLACK GIRLS, IF YOU HAVE A BIG FOREHEAD, ITS OKAY! My entire life, my forehead was all that people talked about when they saw me. It used to bother me so much, even now I cover it up most times. I have heard SO many girls say they don’t want to go natural because they have a “five-head”. A high, rounded forehead is a normal BLACK feature! Just like your lips, nose, skin, hips and butt.

Lol Bonus pics because those first few pics have fake glasses. This is me and my still broke-ass glasses. *Sigh* -_- I should just go get new ones already.

Its weird The Sun newspaper chain seems to be the only ones picking up some important stories. I don’t like them too much because of their right leaning bias but I’ll post their articles if no one else is covering it.

They were the only english paper to cover the Hijab wearing woman getting attacked in Montreal. They were also the only one that published that the LGBT conversion therapy ban bill had passed second reading.

Its sad when Sun News is doing a better job at journalism than the mainstream media of Canada.
