WIZARDING SCHOOLS AROUND THE WORLD: EGYPT

Perhaps the most ancient school still in operation, the Egyptian School for Young Sorcerers is a grand palace disguised to muggle eyes as an insurmountable sand dune that no one has ever had the audacity to climb. In the heart of the palace is a spacious courtyard with a kaleidoscope of blossoming flowers, meandering cats oblivious to their surroundings, and pools of glimmering aquamarine filled with a continual supply of water drawn through underground tunnels from the Nile for leisure use on days when the heat is unbearable. The school boasts a vast chamber of books and scrolls (a number of which were salvaged from the library of Alexandria), some dating as far back as the age of Hatshepsut. Students can often be found draped lazily over chairs and large cushions reading for hours on end. According to rumoured legend, there is a concealed room with hieroglyphics holding spells to prolonging life and communing with the gods, although its discovery remains nigh impossible as (unbeknownst to students) its location changes every day, and those who have had the luck of stumbling upon it by accident often find themselves with a sudden academic dilemma in great need of immediate resolution (although they never seem to remember what it was that sent them stumbling through their professor’s doors).

There’s thousands of notes on posts about how unfair it is that there isn’t a wonder woman movie and now that its been officially announced nobody is talking about it?

A statue of Christopher Columbus was pulled down by protesters in Caracas, Venezuela, in 2004. The former “Columbus Day” is now marked as Indigenous Resistance Day.

Narcissa Malfoy is the only known member of Voldemort’s inner circle not to have taken the Dark Mark.  First and foremost a mother, she was ruthless in doing whatever it took to keep her family together; maintaining her status while her husband was imprisoned in Azkaban and later becoming only the third person known to have deceived The Dark Lord.  Narcissa was calm where her sister was crazed, restrained where her husband was reckless and self-assured where her son aimed to prove himself.  Narcissa knew what mattered most and was a key factor in Harry Potter’s survival and Voldemort’s demise.
Narcissa Malfoy is the Head Bitch In Charge.

The Egyptian Mau is probably the oldest breed of cat. In fact, the breed is so ancient that its name is the Egyptian word for “cat.”

#did they name it mau because thats the sound cats make!?
now I am just imagining a very early Egyptian encountering a wild cat for the first time.
human: what the fuck are you?
cat: mau
human: oh okay then

I don’t really understand how “social justice” became an insulting term. 

"Oh my GOD, you’re attempting to address the inequalities you experience personally and are shedding light on the struggles of others?! WOW FUCK YOU." 

you do tho. you know its a silencing tactic used to keep oppressive hierarchies in place. taboos and discomfort surrounding social critiques are not individual, they are enforced strategies of supremacy.

woop there it is
