WIZARDING SCHOOLS AROUND THE WORLD: CHINA

Located in deep in the Guilin mountains, shrouded in mist and frequented by dragons that live in the multitude of winding rivers, the students of the Chinese Institute of Magic don their colourful wizarding garbs every September 1st for their return to school whereupon they are treated to spectacular opening festivities involving, but not limited to: choreographed martial arts performances from their combat professors, an assortment of acrobatic wonders, and “Mystery Mooncakes” specially made for the mid-autumn festival.

#BUT WAIT #HOUSES BASED ON THE ORIGINAL FOUR #THE TIGER THE DRAGON THE PHOENIX THE TORTOISE

#just imagine how powerful their magic is though #they’ve been developing it for almost 2000 years longer than western magic imagine how refined and beautiful

#harry potter being eurocentric was such a fuckin’ waste

#my favourite thing is how those of us who have grow up with harry potter are now saying “no that’s not enough” and are expanding the universe #like we’re all critically looking at the books and realizing everything that’s wrong with them and fixing it ourselves #and idk i think that’s amazing

#they would not have had four houses; four is such an unlucky number in chinese numerology that there would never be four of anything.

#They also wouldn’t have used a tortoise wtf tortoises are shit in chinese mythology

#There would probably be like 8 houses because hello chinese population is enormous there would probably be tons more witches and wizards just by dint of percentages.

#Also I refuse to believe that chinese witches and wizards are like as massively in hiding as everybody else; I mean just look at traditional chinese medicine. You wanna talk eye of newt let’s talk about the various medicinal uses of fucking freeze dried sea cucumbers wtf why is that always the biggest jar at your grandma’s apothecary.

#…Because that’s goddamn right chinese fucking muggles go to the goddamn apothecary wtf you think you’re special, white leghorn wizards

#also fuck quidditch and broomsticks i bet they play games on motherfucking dragons

#can you imagine HOW MUCH BETTER DUELING WOULD BE WITH MARTIAL ARTS

#Defense against the dark martial arts tho

#I bet the sorting ceremony is much more involved and includes astrology charts and chi and shit like that it’s like matchmaking only way more crucial

#I bet muggles fucking love magic

#I bet they gotta be careful and shit at orphanages making sure no accidental Tom Riddle shit happens and like the next dark lord gets adopted by a pair of white gay guys from Santa Monica because that would be hella awkward whoopsies

You know what I love about this gifset?

Before this moment (1x20 “Fancy Brudgom”), we’d never actually seen much proof that Diaz could be a leader. She’s an excellent detective — smart, tough, strong, good instincts — and a good partner, but she’s not a leader. She’s intimidating and she doesn’t suffer fools well. Everyone would be terrified to have her in charge of them. So why would Captain Holt say this?

Because he is a great leader. Because a great leader not only uses the existing skills of their team but also identifies their potential. Because Captain Holt  knows Rosa will respond to his high expectations. I bet no one’s ever expected her to lead before. Given that she’s a woman of color in a white male-dominated work environment, her previous bosses would have been begrudging if not openly resentful of having her around.  Rosa says herself in this scene that she learned to be nasty to survive. Showing weakness (patience) wasn’t an option. But Holt doesn’t want her to just survive, he wants her to flourish. He’s waited decades for his command, and now he’s using his authority to pay it forward. Scolding her like this is a huge compliment.  He’s trusting that she’ll step up to the plate.

Sometimes Brooklyn Nine Nine feels a little bit like “The Jake Peralta Arrested Development Special”. I love Jake and his relationship with Captain Holt, but I hope that in Season Two there will be less of a focus on Jake’s emotional issues, because he’s certainly not the only one who’s got them.   More scenes like this please, Michael Schur. Let us see how Diaz earns Holt’s high expectations.  Let us see it for the rest of the precinct too.

What makes me so happy about this is that she isn’t telling you you must love your body or that you are obligated to. She saying you have permission to. And that’s important, because there are a lot of reasons why people have trouble with self-love.  But the idea that you aren’t supposed to love your body, that you aren’t allowed to for whatever reason, needs to be crushed. If you can’t love you body right now, if your body causes you pain or disphoria or distress, you aren’t required to love it. But you are ALLOWED to. You are entitled to the chance to make peace with your body, if you ever reach a point where you are ready to. No one else should be trying to stop you.

Sometimes I see or read things, and I didn’t realize that I needed them until they are two GIFs of Nicki Minaj and some amazing commentary that come across my dash and I instantly burst in to tears and feel a weight lifted off my chest.

This is so important

Laverne: Nicole, does your belief system now change, in which you now know you don’t need him to be there? 
Nicole: No. I think what happens is it turns into less a conversation about my blackness and more about relating to humanity, because that’s really what we’re trying to do. We’re just realizing that people are capable of doing it. We’re underestimating people because people said we weren’t viable.
