HP Goblet of Fire Headcanon: Beauxbatons was primarily a Muslim wizarding school.

(photo from livesandliesofwizards, which was the first thing I thought of when I ran into this passage while rereading the Harry Potter books)

(and yes I know the horses drink whisky, which is not exactly halal, sshhh)

This is actually a really probable and possible headcanon, and not just because of the highlighted lines. For those of you who don’t know - during the ever-lovely age of Imperialism, when Western Europe invaded other countries for shits and giggles, and the sun never set on the British Empire, France invaded Northern Africa. 

Nowadays, it’s called the Maghreb, and it is comprised of Algeria, Libya, Mauritania, Morocco, Tunisia, and declares French to be an official language. It is an area in which Islam is the official, and most popular religion, and an area from which the majority of France’s immigrant population is drawn. 

While it is entirely likely that the countries of the Maghreb have their own schools, the immense, and growing population of French speaking, Muslim immigrants in from the Maghreb to France drastically increases the likelihood that even an upperclass school such as Beauxbatons would include a portion of students from that demographic. And I think that’s just really cool.

bravegrrl asked: why is louis where the wild things are? thoroughly interested in your opinion here, i adore the way you talk about these boys


louis is where the wild things are because louis is about being horrible, louis is about feeling walls close around you and being an insufferable brat in defiance, louis is about drawing your fur suit tight over your skin, louis is about bared sharp little teeth and paper crowns, louis is about love that is also an unrelenting hunger, louis is about not wanting to be seen and louis is about refusing to fucking shut up, louis is about the unexpected kindness of tiny merciless kings, louis is about not trusting yourself to be soft or good, and louis is about wanting someone to love you best of all. louis is about the wild rumpus.
