this post is 20 years past relevant but oh well

so i got bored last night and i ended up mapping out some ilvermorny fix-it headcanons and here y’all go

BASICS:

  1. ilvermorny is the first wizarding school in the U.S. and is therefore the most well-known, but there are a ton spread out across the country (and even more across the entirety of north america, but that’s another blog post)
  2. should be noted that many states have more than one main wizarding school (texas has a whopping number of three, with smaller schools littered throughout the state; california has five) but, since massachusetts is small af and ilvermorny is Bigger On The Inside (cue anglophile 13 yr old students screaming), most of the magical community attends
  3. squibs welcome!!!
  4. dorms are optional, and there is a public floo system that operates at set times under the strict supervision of ilvermorny staff for any students who wish to go home after school hours end
  5. no uniforms but pretty strict dress code
  6. also no pets allowed :/ sorry american wizarding fam keep ur cats at home
  7. teachers are hideously underpaid 
  8. school meals are just plain hideous; nobody knows who makes the food, nobody wants to know who makes the food
  9. if you’re a dorm resident, you get a carton of milk and some cereal/an untoasted bagel for breakfast, unless you somehow have a hot plate or some shit
  10. welcome to ilvermorny assholes

(more under the cut)
