NEVER APOLOGIZE FOR CAPS. PHOENICIAN SPELLS. ARAMAIC SPELLS. LANGUAGES MUGGLES DON’T KNOW ANYMORE THAT HAVE BEEN PRESERVED THROUGH WIZARDING SPELLS IN LITTLE POCKETS OF THE WORLD. SOURCE LANGUAGES NO ONE KNOWS HOW TO ADAPT OR CHANGE ANYMORE BECAUSE THE LANGUAGES HAVE DIED AND PEOPLE ARE AFRAID TO CAUSE LIKE, A NUCLEAR FALLOUT. IM SO EXCITED THANKS FOR THIS.

Witches in secret pockets of Morocco who’ve been casting spells with ancient spices long before wands came about. Warlocks in Egypt who knew the double, magical, meaning behind hieroglyphics. A dead language? Latin and Ancient Greek have NOTHING on hieroglyphs. The veritable cacophany of ideas and spells and magic that the trading routes brought in. The Phoenecians with their many-striped sailboats proudly displayed Persian potion ingredients alongside spelled fishing nets woven by Palestinian wizards. Syrian magical folk meet Greek ones, and realize they can best communicate in the Ancient Greek all serious magical students learn. Curly heads bent over ancient spellbooks, and people stare as they converse in a language not spoken for hundreds of years.
Excuse you but can we not forget the jewish lore masters, poring over their tomes in hebrew and aramaic, preserved from their exiled homeland into the diaspora.
And the development of a syncretic magic in yiddish that mixes the subtle lore and subtle word power of the exiled levantines with the raw brute force of germanic magics. — how else did the golem?
DIASPORA SYNCRETIC MAGICS
jewish wizards offering house elves clothes in accordance with the slave laws
jewish wizards using golems as grunt labor
Yes to the Yiddish spells, too ;-)
Jewish wizards offering clothing to house elves and then constantly debating among themselves whether using a golem or other magically-created entity with some semblance of sentience for manual labor for years or decades is essentially the same thing as keeping a magical being for the same purpose.
See also: endless debates about whether one can use magic on Shabbat, and what sorts of magic qualify as “work”. Like, does it count if you enchant an object ahead of time?
Also debates over the extent to which Divination counts as the “witchcraft” detailed in the Tanach. Actually, I bet there’d be scholars compiling detailed tractates about which spells are kosher, using extensive biblical commentary.
JEWISH WIZARDS HAVING THEIR OWN EXTENDED TALMUD. HOW HAS THIS NEVER OCCURRED TO ME BEFORE??
Magic is a natural extension of the self; Therefore, one should be allowed to use magic on Shabbos. You might put restrictions on what kind of magic, and brewing potions (even ones that don’t require heat) and using wands…
I wrote a paper for a Harry Potter conference on foreign wizardry and how the systems of magic must have evolved to be completely separate entities that have very little in common. We’re only seen a TINY portion of the wizarding world and for the most part it’s Western European. I like to imagine Bill Weasley had to extensively train for cursebreaking in Egypt, because you can’t just waltz into a tomb, wave your wand, shout Latin and expect it to work.
I also love the idea of foreign magics being a bit wonky in a duel against each other because they’re not quite compatible. Like, it’s really hard to block a spell from a foreign wizard because you don’t understand exactly what you’re blocking against.
God, so many foreign wizard feels.

imagine a muggleborn in hogwarts starts singing Bohemian Rhapsody under their breath and then another muggleborn notices and starts singing along
and then suddenly all the muggleborns in the area are belting out the lyrics and head banging and every single pureblood is left utterly confused
tumblr staff should add a little banner to the top of the classic who tag
"no, classic who isn’t completely on netflix. the whole thing is on dailymotion. yeah, we know susan’s name is arkytior which is high gallifreyan for rose."
It’s not all on daily motion.
Some of them are lost.
No, it is all on dailymotion. Even the reconstructions. Sometimes, multiple versions of the reconstructions. Trust me. I watched it all.
- 'dumb blonde' was literally the opposite of what they were trying to get across
- a lot of her character and story comes from her showing she’s much more than a ‘dumb blonde stereotype’ which is what the doctor basically regarded her as when they first met
- seriously so much of her plot is just devoted to showing just what a caring, selfless person she is
- to the point where she’s ready to give up her life without a second thought for the safety of others
- despite this, she /considers/ herself a ‘dumb blonde’ and there are occasional hints that she’s very conscious of what other people think of her
- she’s a major influence on three’s character and they make a point to show how she’s helped him develop into a friendlier and more hopeful character
- she’s funny
- she’s brave
- she’s optimistic in a very endearing way
- the episodes she’s in tend to be very fun and some of the most creative, in my opinion (the green death, carnival of monsters, terror of the autons, and the daemons, just to name a few)
- she’s a great foil to about every other character on the show
- going on that, her relations to the other characters (especially the doctor) add a lot to the episodes she’s in
- katy manning is a wonderful actor and she just shines in her portrayal of Jo
- I think she has one of the most well-acted, lovingly written, and just all around perfect departures the show has ever had
- her companion chronicles are some of the best and katy does the voices perfectly
- (rose isn’t a ‘dumb blonde stereotype’ either)
- She’s fab as hell
- don’t ever insult jo grant
- what show are you even watching
