I did this at a bus stop once. I missed my bus and the next one wasn’t supposed to come for another hour, so I had time to kill. A little girl walking with her mom said it looked like a throne for a flower princess.

But essentially my new setting is a dystopian future where global and national-level military have been totally eradicated. Humans made and use suits of bio-armour that fuse with them and grant them the ability to change their genetics at any level, granting them the ability to change their bodies…

Sounds really interesting actually.

CAN WE TALK ABOUT MIDDLE EASTERN WITCHES AND WIZARDS THOUGH. AND HOW THEY'RE SPELLS WOULD OBVIOUSLY NOT BE LATIN, GREEK OR ANGLO SAXON, BUT INSTEAD LIKE ANCIENT PHOENICIAN, OR SOMETHING. AND THAT THEIR TIES BETWEEN SPELLS AND MAGIC WOULD BE STRONGER SINCE THEIR WORDS ARE MORE ANCIENT AND FAR OLDER SO THEY'D BE WAY MORE POWERFUL???? SORRY FOR THE CAPS?????

NEVER APOLOGIZE FOR CAPS. PHOENICIAN SPELLS. ARAMAIC SPELLS. LANGUAGES MUGGLES DON’T KNOW ANYMORE THAT HAVE BEEN PRESERVED THROUGH WIZARDING SPELLS IN LITTLE POCKETS OF THE WORLD. SOURCE LANGUAGES NO ONE KNOWS HOW TO ADAPT OR CHANGE ANYMORE BECAUSE THE LANGUAGES HAVE DIED AND PEOPLE ARE AFRAID TO CAUSE LIKE, A NUCLEAR FALLOUT. IM SO EXCITED THANKS FOR THIS.

Witches in secret pockets of Morocco who’ve been casting spells with ancient spices long before wands came about. Warlocks in Egypt who knew the double, magical, meaning behind hieroglyphics. A dead language? Latin and Ancient Greek have NOTHING on hieroglyphs. The veritable cacophany of ideas and spells and magic that the trading routes brought in. The Phoenecians with their many-striped sailboats proudly displayed Persian potion ingredients alongside spelled fishing nets woven by Palestinian wizards. Syrian magical folk meet Greek ones, and realize they can best communicate in the Ancient Greek all serious magical students learn. Curly heads bent over ancient spellbooks, and people stare as they converse in a language not spoken for hundreds of years.

Excuse you but can we not forget the jewish lore masters, poring over their tomes in hebrew and aramaic, preserved from their exiled homeland into the diaspora.

And the development of a syncretic magic in yiddish that mixes the subtle lore and subtle word power of the exiled levantines with the raw brute force of germanic magics. — how else did the golem?

DIASPORA SYNCRETIC MAGICS

JEWISH WIZARDS

Yes to the Yiddish spells, too ;-)

Jewish wizards offering clothing to house elves and then constantly debating among themselves whether using a golem or other magically-created entity with some semblance of sentience for manual labor for years or decades is essentially the same thing as keeping a magical being for the same purpose.

See also: endless debates about whether one can use magic on Shabbat, and what sorts of magic qualify as “work”. Like, does it count if you enchant an object ahead of time?

Also debates over the extent to which Divination counts as the “witchcraft” detailed in the Tanach. Actually, I bet there’d be scholars compiling detailed tractates about which spells are kosher, using extensive biblical commentary.

JEWISH WIZARDS HAVING THEIR OWN EXTENDED TALMUD. HOW HAS THIS NEVER OCCURRED TO ME BEFORE??

Magic is a natural extension of the self; Therefore, one should be allowed to use magic on Shabbos. You might put restrictions on what kind of magic, and brewing potions (even ones that don’t require heat) and using wands…

I wrote a paper for a Harry Potter conference on foreign wizardry and how the systems of magic must have evolved to be completely separate entities that have very little in common. We’re only seen a TINY portion of the wizarding world and for the most part it’s Western European. I like to imagine Bill Weasley had to extensively train for cursebreaking in Egypt, because you can’t just waltz into a tomb, wave your wand, shout Latin and expect it to work.

I also love the idea of foreign magics being a bit wonky in a duel against each other because they’re not quite compatible. Like, it’s really hard to block a spell from a foreign wizard because you don’t understand exactly what you’re blocking against.

God, so many foreign wizard feels.

MAGIC IN CUBA

SOMEONE CONTRIBUTE TO THIS BECAUSE I CANT AND IT FRUSTRATES ME


Inca warlocks collaborating with the emperors in Cuzco, standing over construction workers as they raise Machu Picchu, as roads are laid out perfectly straight for hundreds of kilometers, as Nazca lines are drawn, .

Nomadic Tehuelche wizards in Patagonia communicating with each other magically over the distances to protect their land from the conquistadores, charms overlayed on the stones marked with handprints and markings, protective spells that lasted for generations.

Native witches in northern Argentina and Bolivia, in Chile and Ecuador weaving magic into their clothes, storing charms in the brick of their houses, muttering spells in Quechua to shield themselves from the spanish colonizadores. 

Locals from Colombia and Guatemala disillusioning themselves to smuggle across borders, for safety and for freedom, raising their children in tiny run-down apartments as illegal immigrants the USA, banding together and teaching their children of the magic and lore of their homeland.

Second-generation wizard kids in Buenos Airs working to combine the elaborate and colourful incantations of España, with the hechizos of their family, combining western potions with the herbal concoctions their abuela taught them.

LATINOS TODAY IN JUJUY AND SALTA STILL PAYING TRIBUTE TO PACHAMAMA WITH MAGICAL HERBS AND POULTICES, POTIONS THAT THEY TELL THE MUGGLES IS JUST WINE, BLOOD RITUALS AND INCANDESCENT OFFERINGS, HERITAGE THAT HAS SURVIVED THE RISE AND FALL OF EMPIRES

Is it… wrong to feel guilty for spending a lot of money in the same month on frivoulous things?

I mean… I try to argue with myself that it’s fine. That it’s no big deal. But…

I don’t get things very often, I tell myself. But then, a voice in my brain goes “When you do you spend alot though. Video games are kinda expensive.”

And then I think that I don’t get video games very often but I just don’t know…

I feel so anxious about it all, you know? I don’t think I like having a card anymore… {:(

Being a nice person is so fun

Waiter messes something up? You can see the relief on their faces when you don’t scream and swear at them about it

Extra tickets at an arcade/prize place? Watch a little kid’s face light up when you give them a bunch of tickets

There are too many assholes in this world. Be a nice person.
