For today’s sketch! ANKUR! The master witch, the trans daughter of vengeance, the one to bring down mountains with but a slight of hand when most magic users can barely move a boulder.

What are some of your favorite films set in the Midwest? What about the Pacific North West?

Hi I’m so sorry this is late!

Have you watched anything by Kelly Reichardt? I think all of her films (except River of Grass) are set in the midwest. I’ve actually only seen Certain Women but it was one of my favorite films last year. 

Twin Peaks, of course! (technically not a movie but 100% worth watching) 

Some other films I looove: Election, Drop Dead Gorgeous, Fargo, The Music Man, Wild, The Wizard of Oz, Brokeback Mountain, The Goonies (!!!), Stand By Me, Captain Fantastic, Say Anything, 10 Things I Hate About You

(SEMI) related but I also found this article that’s a list of 50 great American films (1 for each state). It’s a cool lil overview of ~American Cinema~ and had quite a few films that I’ve never heard of

ok but consider magical schools in california:

- sea side schools being carved into rocky cliffs in the north and being at the pier heads in the south
- historically hispanic schools based around brujería
- spells being derived from french, spanish, english, chinese, vietnamese, filipino, japanese, native, and scandinavian witches
- the Los Angeles School of Wizardry (LASW?) being accessible through the metro ‘pink’ line which runs all day but is only accessed by a charmed TAP card
- LASW students having a deep tradition of charming murals around LA to move or sing
- witches and wizards performing on busy streets in LA and hollywood
-enchanted clothes that always fit the way you want
- north california witches and wizards using the marine layer to hide their schools
- northern schools also being hidden by the MASSIVE redwoods and include the vast ecosystems that come with them
- bigfoot and river sirens being humor mascots
- BANANA SLUGS (they’re not cryptids but they might as well be)
- coastal schools having their own groups of mermaids that adapt to their shore environment
-kelp forest mermaids, coastal wetland mermaids, rocky shore mermaids
- coastal schools having outrigger canoe teams, surf teams, and open water teams
- wizards performing acts at venice beach on the weekends
- student wizards and witches pranking each other by giving ridiculous moving tanlines
- mojave wizarding schools being disguised as abandoned theme parks and truck stops but really being gorgeous castles that howl with the winds at night
- other mojave schools being carved into mountainsides with abandoned mine shafts as their entrances
-teachers and students always being weary of first years going riding during full moons when the sky is bright and the wind is quiet
- first years always disappear around those times and never manage to come back, some say they get full moon sickness and never come out of the trance
- mojave schools using buggies and quads to get around
- desert wizards covered head to toe in winter with only their riding goggles showing but wearing only shorts and tanks with dust masks in the summer
- mountain wizard schools who dominate at quidditch because they train in the thin air
- mountain wizards having ski goggle tan lines from staying too long on the slopes
- mountain wizards lowkey being behind bigfoot legends because they have first years put on costumes to try and scare tourist campers
- all the regional schools teaming up every year to have a festival together where they compete at quidditch and lacrosse and celebrate
- the festival being disguised as a big summer fair that no-majs can really never find the dates for
- the destination for the festival being decided by that year’s quidditch champions

(that got really long really fast but there’s so much more that i skipped over)
