#INTERNATIONAL WIZARDS GIVE ME THEM ALL#MIDDLE EASTERN WARLOCKS AND EAST ASIAN MAGES ANFNSJSMFJWKAIndia’s Academy of Sorcery boasts an impressive display of flashy colours, from enchanted saris that shift colours sporadically throughout the day, to the lavishly painted exterior of the academy which is situated in a nondescript location along Ganges River. Due to the frightening rate at which the school’s ancient mango tree (jokingly nicknamed “Mammoth Mango Machine”) produces mangoes, students have to endure the perpetually evolving art of mango cuisine at least five days a week. Every year, to the students’ great enjoyment, classes are halted for Diwali to make time for various competitions that take place: firework flourishes and charms for upper-year students (bonus points if it doesn’t set any part of the school on fire), and lantern designing for lower-year students (use of animals, alive or dead, is forbidden).

#I WANT MORE OF THE MAGICAL WORLD#I WANT IT LIKE THIS#I WANT MORE CULTURES#this makes me so happy because we have expanded the world into our own creational ideas#into our own lives and cultures and beliefs#and that’s really amazing
Latin American brujas telling stories of La Ciguapa to keep first years from roaming the halls at night, and La Llorona to keep them from the shore of the beach and river after dark.
Lighting novenas before exams because old habits die hard, figuring out fifteen ways to make concon with an incendio charm in their dorms, and house solidarity going out the window during the World Cup because fuck that, it’s everyone for themselves.
Imagine Carnival before lent, the seniors running around with those inflated pig bladders that hurt like murder, wearing the máscaras and whapping the first years who don’t run fast enough, and there’s a sloth on the grounds that everyone believes is immortal because everyone’s seen him miss the branch of the guava tree more than once and he always seems to bounce just fine.
Every November 1st, the entire place is done up for Dia de Los Muertos and everyone eats themselves sick on sugar skulls and it takes two weeks to get marigold pollen out of the robes, but that’s okay because guayaberas are so much cooler anyways?
Oh, damn, I am so down for this.
The audio drama, which begins recording today in a secret London location, has a cast including Colin Morgan (Merlin, The Fall) as Newton Pulsifer, Josie Lawrence (Skins, EastEnders) as Agnes Nutter and Paterson Joseph (Peep Show, Green Wing) as Famine, as well as a host of delightful cameos, from the Gardeners’ Question Time team to Neil and Terry themselves. Other cameos are set to delight listeners, but they are under wraps for now. Probably in a dusty occult bookshop in Covent Garden, but no one is quite sure. (x)
Amazing.I always wanted to be a superstar, and knew that singing songs would get me this far. Be careful what you wish for, ‘cause you just might get it.
his life was totally in danger.
True story; this officer (John Pike) got a settlement of $38,000 because he said he got depressed after pepper spraying these kids. Oh, the depression wasn’t for feeling remorseful for pepper spraying a bunch of college kids peacefully protesting. He got depressed because he said since the media kept playing the video of him pepper spraying peaceful kids without cause, he got threats and didn’t feel safe. He didn’t feel safe. I’m not making that up. This motherfucker collected nearly 40 grand on worker’s comp after assaulting a bunch of college kids.
Do you ever have that moment when a kid is looking at you and you realize that they’re looking at you as a grown up? Then its like no child im a children too, dont. Im sorry my outward appearance confuses you.
This is legit.
More PSAs need to stop worrying about offending people and get down to the nitty gritty like this. It’s the only way to open so many eyes.
If people are offended, they are probably guilty.
I made this gif from an episode of Venture Bros (episode 46). It might prove extremely useful on here.
