How can Elide have witchblood and still be human?

We’ve all been there. When Manon scratched Elide in QoS and figured out the crippled servant girl had witchblood in her, and not just any, but specifically Ironteeth. We all asked ourselves the question: wait, what? How is that possible? Shouldn’t all girls born to witches be witchlings and, subsequently, witches?

Ironteeth witches breed with human men and have witches, right? 

Yes, but also no. 

Let me explain.

So I was rereading some scenes in Queen of Shadows and I came across this passage in Chapter 12 from Manon’s POV (point-of-view):

         “Witchlings were so rare, and all of them female, as a gift from the Three-          Faced Goddess.”

Only the Ironteeth seem to have the ‘all female’ rule, as we know Crochans can have boys too (although they are significantly rare).

         “They were sacred from the moment the mother showed signs of      pregnancy to when they came of age at sixteen.”

It seems that Ironteeth (Blackbeaks, if we’re getting specific here) do not need to go through a trial or something similar to “prove” they are no longer witchlings. The moment a witchling first bleeds she is ‘of age’ and considered a witch.

         “To harm a pregnant witch, to harm her unborn witchling or her daughter-”

HOLD UP

         “Unborn witchling OR her daughter”??????

There’s a distinct separation of words there. As if Manon is referring to two different kinds of pregnancies. What I’m saying here is that witches can and do in fact, have human daughters.

This is further evidenced in the very next paragraph after the above statement first appeared.

         “Human children didn’t count-”

Manon is referring to how human children aren’t protected or at all as sacred as witchlings.

         “-human children were as good as veal to some of the Clans.”

Not all of them, however. Interesting.

         “Especially the Yellowlegs.”

Let’s be real, ya’ll, this isn’t a surprise.

         “But witchlings…there was no greater pride than to bear a witch-child for      your Clan; and no greater shame than to lose one.”

I bolded some words in the above sentence because it clearly implies there could be something other than a ‘witch-child,’ in other words a ‘human-child’, a daughter.

I assume Elide’s mother, Marion, was born human and so was let go, moved, or was thrown out from her Clan. Manon clearly mentions how only ‘some Clans’ see human-daughters as a waste, which means there are others that might value any children they have, including humans. Perranth is close to the Wastes so it makes sense.

That’s why Elide is human while having witch blood, because witches can in fact, have human children. (At least the Ironteeth, Crochans are still a mystery) It also explains why Manon asked her if she wanted to be a Blackbeak-to be considered a witch. I’m assuming it’s because Blackbeaks keep their human children, or at least, don’t kill them. I can see these human girls being of the lowest ranks, perhaps servants and cooks and whatnot.

Anyway, it’s a theory.

Thoughts?

Also, thanks to @propshophannah for motivating me to make this haha, I’m still in finals and it feels like I don’t have much time or motivation to write fics or finish my theories.

Samson, the weird red and  black T6 stud, produced a beautiful second T7 mare, Thunder :)
So pretty, and so dumb (seriously, she’s a show-reel of ‘what skills I don’t want to have on a horse’)…but there’s still hope til 30. (And also Hope, the other T7, that’s just fine.)

My witch had a make-over from my 11 year old, as well…I suspect some issues there. :D

anonymous asked:

Newt Scamander is a shit person~ he created the Werewolf Registry and helped pass other anti-werewolf legislation that made all werewolves lives infinitely harder, making it hard for them to find housing (thus a safe place to transform), jobs, etc.

((OOC: One decision does not ultimately condemn a person. There are many perspectives to have on werewolves as each is different. Compare Remus Lupin and Fenrir Greyback. You don’t want life to be hard for Remus, we all want what is best for a werewolf that has no desire to hurt any one, and yes the discrimination toward him as a person is awful and unfair. But what about Fenrir, a werewolf who has no regard for human life and bites human children for fun. Should he not be registered and monitored? In Fantastic Beasts, Newt clearly states that he wants to protect magical creatures, educate his fellow wizards about them, even if they are indeed seen as dangerous. Why would this change for werewolves? And you can also view it as Mr. Scamander trying to place a buffer between human and werewolf, to protect the general public (because they are in fact, considered a different breed). Other witches and wizards perpetuate the stigma and the persecution of werewolves and that may be because of the registry, or it may be traditional (like the stigma around Muggle-borns) which is more likely. It’s a difficult political situation over all. What human rights apply to a transformed werewolf? How much freedom should be given to a person that regardless of free will turns into a monster that’s only objectives are to bite another person to make more werewolves or kill? The fact is that: a Registry seems like a good idea. Even Animagi have a registry. But again, it’s the witches and wizards in society who maintain the maltreatment and discrimination of werewolves as a whole. Surrounding witches and wizards make their livelihood harder. Remus is on the Registry and still got a job at Hogwarts. Not one of the parents or students knew he was a werewolf. It wasn’t until Snape told the whole school, did they speak out against him. And who knows if Newt had a personal resentment toward them? All I know is that it sounds very uncharacteristic to say that he hates them and wants to oppress them. It would make sense to have a few anti werewolf precautions (also I only found the Registry for werewolves under him and there was no other information about more anti-werewolf legislation that he passed). I dunno… Food for thought.)) (*EDIT* My I also point out that the day we are born, we are put on a registry. A registry for werewolves is no different than having social security. It’s something that you have to put on legal documents, or something you have to give when you go to college or get a job. That’s all the registry is. It’s private, but has to be given under legal circumstances.)

Harvest Witch Headcanons

I love Harvest Witches. I love them to bits, though I loathe how they seem to be missing a lot of lore. There’s gobs of potential there! Until Blizzard starts cranking out info, though, here’s some thoughts I shared with @king-kankor on witches and what makes sense to me.

I suppose I should preface this by stating that I see harvest witches as a little bit more than just magical farmers who can hear cryptic messages on the wind. In my mind, the Old Ways encompass a fair bit more, given that humans used to originally be shamanistic. However, harvest witches were also driven underground at some point, though why this happened is never directly stated. So to me, harvest witches exist in a delicate state of duality–one where they ensure bountiful harvests and hunts for the communities they watch over, as well as dabble in darker practices (after all, there has to be a reason they were nearly hunted into extinction).

I see harvest witchcraft as capable of being broken down by region; the more well-known farm witches would have played a vastly different role than, say… A woodland witch, and as such I feel like their studies and practices would affect this. That’s not to say, however, a farm witch COULDN’T be all for curses and faeries rather than healing and tending crops! But in general, given that witches have always struck me as extremely practical (if a bit eccentric), that their roles in their community/region would play a huge part in what they practice.

So brace yourselves! There’s an incredibly long post ahead, but I encourage anyone and everyone to reblog this with the addition of their own headcanons, too! I’d love to see what you guys imagine for your witches.

like?? here’s the thing though,

Perrington’s greatest weapon - Kaltain - is dead. After he finds out it was her shadow fire that was released and burned everything he’s going to know he didn’t have full control over her and that she somehow managed to keep her conscious and act on her will.

His freaky ass Yellowlegs witch-breeding creatures are also dead.

Remember he requested Blackbeaks?? I think this time he won’t even ask Manon to supply him some Blackbeaks - He knows she’s stubborn and doesn’t follow orders. He knows Grandmother Blackbeak will hand over anything he asks for.

So he has no weapon and no valg-witch offspring. 

I get the sick feeling he will snap a valg collar on Manon. Maybe two or a stronger one to prevent her from acting on her will like Kaltain. She would make the perfect weapon after all. She’s wing leader of the whole witch air cavalry. They all acknowledge her as leader. She has her Thirteen ‘the infamous fiercest and ruthless witches’. Not only that - she has what all valg fear - gold eyes, those belonging to the kings. 

Manon hasn’t been cooperating fully with Perrington, they always come to disagreements when he asks something of her and she questions his motives, even hesitating under his commands to kill a village.

If she didn’t question him, hesitate or go against his wishes she would be the perfect weapon. 

Can you imagine how terrifying it would be to see a wyrdstone around her neck as she stares blankly ahead with dull eyes and bows at Perrington then proceeds to his orders??? What if it didn’t stop with her and all The Thirteen have collars? Is Perrington going to continue with the breeding and is he going to use Blackbeaks this time?
