making pierogi

tiggerguk  asked:

Do you think there may be wizarding schools in other european countries, like italy (yep, totally random, not my country at all °w° )?

definitely! in my head it’s something like this:

  • hogwarts as we know is up in scotland and takes students from the uk and ireland
  • beauxbatons is somewhere near the south of france and I reckon takes students from france, belgium, luxembourg, and switzerland
  • there’s a school somewhere in spain that takes spanish and portuguese students. they probably learn a lot about harmony between religion and magic
  • another school up in germany that encompasses germany, austria, netherlands, switzerland, and belgium. I think they probably have a much bigger emphasis on muggle studies than hogwarts does, probably looking at the rise of grindelwald and hitler in equal measure
  • a scandinavian school in norway or sweden which also takes iceland, denmark, and finland. definitely a big emphasis on magical creatures here. I like to think they have a lot of field trips to study creatures in their natural habitat, or maybe going to copenhagen to compare the little mermaid statue to mermaids they’ve studied
  • a school for the countries around the adriatic so italy, croatia, bosnia and herzegovina, greece, montenegro, albania, macedonia (though it’s primarily italy and greece) with a huge emphasis on history of magic. also languages, I’m thinking ancient greek and latin- maybe studying how latin is used in spells? and definitely have a mythology class of some sort
  • Durmstrang is somewhere in the region of bulgaria and probably also takes students from romania, serbia, kosovo, bosnia and herzegovina, albania 
  • central european school probably in poland with students from czech republic, slovenia, slovakia, hungary. I kind of hope they study home spells and stuff because that should really be covered at hogwarts! learning how to make pierogi by magic and that sort of stuff!
  • and finally an eastern european school over in russia which also takes kids from estonia, latvia, lithuania, belarus, and ukraine. there’s lots of animals in slavic folklore so maybe there’s a higher emphasis on that? things like training familiars or learning to become animagi as part of the curriculum

Haikyuu!! Week Day 4 - Position

Sugasuga’s Daycare For Young Setters (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧

If I were to play volleyball I would probably end up as a setter. Or as a middle blocker (because I’m tall).

I wanted to draw Suga with little Kenma and then this happened. But I hope you like it anyway?

Prompt: I think you are beautiful and I would like to kiss you.  I can think up some clever lines, if you’d prefer.  But I wanted to say that, first. (None of those lines seemed to be about you or me.)
~1k, alternative meeting/meet cute, no warnings!

Blaine sees him every morning. As his bus turns the corner at 8.36, the most beautiful man in the world is picking up flowers from a small stand, bill in hand ready to hand over. He always looks sad, Blaine thinks, his expression heavy and his shoulders a little too square, but he always thinks to himself that whoever it is that gets a small bunch of yellow flowers from the most beautiful man in the world every single day is a lucky person.

Blaine spends the rest of him commute imagining what a man that beautiful’s name must be. Something elegant, he thinks. Perhaps an Alexander. He’s so pale against the grey of the city that it almost makes sense to imagine that he’s Russian. Blaine imagines learning to make pierogi for him, and then bumps his head against the window and grins to himself. His mama always told him he was a hopeless romantic, and here he is, imagining a life with this man he sees for less than a minute a day.

(He’s given him many names and many lives over the weeks and months he’s seen him. Tomas is a Czech web developer who likes expensive wines and pretty Midwestern boys. Rhys is a Welshman who lives in London and working on an international contract for a telecommunication company. He likes French movies and American boys. Patrick is from Regina and is an international student. He’s brought his liberal Canadian politics with him and is buying flowers just to brighten his student accommodation with. Dicky is in family law, grew up in the Midwest and studied in New York and has never found a reason to go back. He loves fashion, scarves, and good Midwestern boys who love football. Blaine knows it’s ridiculous, but his own real life adventures in love have been more miss than hit, and a few seconds with the angel and his flowers has to be enough. His name is Anthony and he’s from Florida…)

“Where are you going now, Yuri?” Viktor asks, because practice is over and his brain can focus on other things like 1) the hole in his sleeve 2) the impressive gap in Yakov’s eyebrow that he does not want to know about and 3) chitchat with rinkmates.

“I’m going to try this new club,” Georgi announces, like nobody knows he’s just seen his ex check in there. “Seems cool.”

Viktor smiles politely and turns back to Yuri, who has just graduated from juniors. “How about you?”

Yuri gives him this look. The one you give to an adult when they ask how to print an email attachment.

“Seeing my grandpa,” he says. “It’s Sunday. We’re making pierogi.”

This is the most Yuri has ever said to Viktor, and he seems to have exhausted his reserves. Viktor’s follow up questions are all met with irritable shrugs.


Sometimes Viktor says he’s going out but stays in. Sometimes Viktor says he’s staying in to do laundry when he is 100% planning to try out that new bar the next block over.

He doesn’t know why he does this.

  • 41. When was the last time you ate a cupcake?

Prob during the end of semester science presentations, they always have good food

  • 43. Ever embarrass yourself in front of a crush?

Constantly?? Good example would be when I had a hardcore crush in this girl six years older than me in high school (so I knew it was never gonna happen but that didn’t stop my dumb teenager heart) and I would go see her in the library when she worked there and we would chat and anytime I said anything slightly bold I would just blush profusely

  • 52. Do you think musicals are cheesy?

A lot of them are, but I’m also a bitch for emotions so if they’re sad I’ll usually cry no matter how cheesy

  • 54. Ever eat a pierogi?

Yeah! My fam is of polish descent so every year we have “pierogi day” where we make giant batches of pierogis and freeze them to eat later in the year until next pierogi day

[ ooc // I FINISHED IT OH MY GOD IT’S DONE it’s also completely safe for work, if anyone was worried. they are actually just sleeping, it wasn’t some innuendo. it topped out at 3.2k words so it took a while but it’s pretty… pretty long. praise be for chille tid though it practically doubled the wordcount. i’ve also got a pic i drew of it, but it isn’t quite finished yet – it’ll probs go up sometime tomorrow!! ]

[ OH RIGHT- if you haven’t been following this blog long, this is kind of an “epilogue” to the possession event. pearl has a slightly different appearance from regeneration (one aspect of which was unintentional – her teeth are sharp and she is upset) and honestly if i gave more backstory it’d get way too long so i guess uhhhh enjoy?? idk sobs;; ily ^^’ ]

Happy First Contact Day! For anyone who doesn’t know: it’s April 5th, the first day that humans make contact with an alien race… in the year 2063. So we’ve got a bit to go before it actually happens (Star Trek canon is real life canon, of course) but there’s still reason to celebrate!

Why not try some vegan recipes from Food Replicator, a blog of recipes for food and drink featured in the Star Trek universe?

If you don’t see anything you like, there are plenty of easily veganizable recipes over on the main site. Why not try making Daiya cheese pierogies in honour of Zefram Cochrane?

In the iconic first words from the Vulcans to humankind,

Live Long and Prosper!
