wizardhistory:


Ou Deshi, resident of Guangzhou, China for the majority of his life, found himself in a curious situation, one that has happened to very few; he spent a majority of his life not knowing he was magical. Growing up in the late 1700s to two muggle shopkeepers, he had no idea that when he was a toddler, his parents had the headmaster of the great Chinese school himself had come to explain Ou’s magic. Ou’s parents did something completely unprecedented; they denied him, ran the headmaster from their house with their many dogs, and recruited the town to help keep the “nonsense-spinning madmen” from coming to the shop to claim Ou.
Until he was about thirteen, Ou’s parents spun a web of lies about his magic, likening it to illness and just peculiarities that happened to everyone. Still, much like our lovely boy who lived, his magical abilities set him apart from other students. His strict parents mixed with his own thoughts of being different proved for a lonely childhood.
It was only around his fourteenth birthday that Ou was “rescued”, some say, by a group of witches and wizards his age who had heard the stories of the strange wizard who thought he was a muggle. However they did it — whether by persuasion, force, or sneaking Ou out — Ou attended a Chinese School of Magic the following year.
It was said the catching up  he had to do was tumultuous, and he often had to sit in on first-to-third year classes. However, he managed to pass all his classes with flying colors. His determination and appreciation to the chance he got, apparently, made him a star student, and a star charmweaver-to-be.
Ou died only about seven years after his graduation, apparently from a kitchen fire that claimed the majority of the restaurant he was eating at. His portrait, hanging in one of the towers in the great Chinese school, is a symbol of overcoming disadvantage, muggleborn excellence, and appreciation of families that are made by choice and not blood.

jjh2456 asked: Do you think Al and Scorpius are the new Harry and Ron of the new generation.

wizardhistory:

Far from. Albus Potter was sorted into Ravenclaw house, where he met Xavier Belby, and there a friendship formed; Albus by nature is quiet, and often worries about grades and performance, often doubting his abilities despite them being quite normal. The boy keeps his noses in his books—whether for school or fun—and spends most of his time with Xavier, a round boy who is almost the same.

Scorpius Malfoy, on the other hand, was sorted into Slytherin house like his parents and ancestors. The young Malfoy had no opinion on the Potters, Weasleys, or any families his father was familiar with. Scorpius was very concentrated on Quidditch, and even more-so on charmwork and on his familial history and legacy, which he hoped to improve.

With all that, one can assume that Albus and Scorpius never really crossed paths; Scorpius, with his mind dreaming of brooms and greatness, and Albus with his nose and eyes running across pages, never really acknowledged one another.

because a lot of people dont seem to get this:

  • golems are from jewish folklore. dont treat them like a generic fantasy creature, thats appropriative
  • kabbalah is a specifically jewish religious tradition. dont practice it if youre not jewish and dont use kabbalah symbolism as generic occult stuff, thats appropriative
  • for the record if it has hebrew on it and it doesnt have anything to do with judaism its probably appropriative
  • dont wear a magen david if youre not jewish, its used as a symbol for judaism so wearing it if youre a gentile is appropriative
  • while im at it heres a rundown of some terms you should know
  • goy: hebrew and yiddish for non-jewish person, it literally translates as “nation.” the plural form is goyim. goy is not a slur.
  • gentile: english for non-jewish person
  • anti-semitism: you probably know what this means but i just want to point out that the word anti-semitism was NOT coined by jews but by a german anti-semite who wanted a more scientific-sounding alternative to “judenhass,” which literally translates to “jew-hatred” so please shut up about how arabs are also semites. we know.
  • if you’re not jewish you should also avoid using the word “jew” since many jewish people are uncomfortable with it (though i personally am fine with it). use “jewish person” instead if youre a gentile

please reblog this if you’re not jewish, i almost never see gentiles acknowledging cultural appropriation of judaism and anti-semitism on tumblr, even among people who otherwise pay close attention to such issues

People REALLY need to remember the second one on this list.

Marry a man who loves you more than you love him. A woman will always give more than what is necessary to her lover. It is ingrained into her, like maternity. But even when a man loves you more, he will still only be able to meet you halfway.
