you'd probably have to attend hogwarts for that first

(ok now that i've been a smartass: i'm with you. just let me sell magical pets to people.)

She could go to the Princess School or the Angry Russian School. Or the American School.

(Anonymous) 2017-03-16 11:06 pm (UTC)(link)
true! or the japanese school. wasn't there also one in uganda? that's also an option.

but lbr are any of these likely to be less difficult to survive than hogwarts? ok, granted, they don't have harry "disaster magnet" potter.

I bet those other schools have higher survival rates.

except for the two that were totally down with the Triple Hunger Games For Glory.

Yeah, but that is a one time death fest. Hogwarts is an all the time death fest.

(Anonymous) 2017-03-16 11:28 pm (UTC)(link)
ok now i'm wondering how frequently the tournament happened back when it was a regular thing, and if they planned on doing it again had it not, in a convoluted way, involved bringing voldemort back to life.

in the same vein, i'm really curious about the death rate at hogwarts when harry, voldemort, and dumbledore aren't around to turn that thing into murder city. they do instantly debate closing the school when the basilisk stretches its long, long body, twice. or does hogwarts have a really sketchy accident vs murder policy that makes the first type of death much, much more acceptable to the point of really not being that big a deal. and: do the other schools also teach ridiculously dangerous subjects like "touch this deadly wild animal, will you"?

Durmstrang apparently teaches Dark Arts and not just the defenses against them, so that sounds pretty dangerous.

And even the more normal years at Hogwarts seem to include a lot of injuries that are considered pretty normal. When they were getting ready for the last Quidditch match in the third book, there were all these fights that broke out in the halls that sent people to the hospital wing and it seems that the teachers didn't say anything about it. Quidditch itself seems ridiculously dangerous. Two of the balls are specifically for trying to knock people off their brooms.

(Anonymous) 2017-03-16 11:40 pm (UTC)(link)
quidditch is international, though, with a proper world cup and everything, so it seems likely that the other schools have teams, too. teacher's reactions might be more appropriate. at the japanese school, they practice over the ocean, while at risk of muggle discovery (something that would lead to instant expulsion and trial). yeah, i read that plttermore thing, it was a slow day.

I only watched the movies and not really too often. But Hogwarts does have a tree that will beat the shit out of people. And that lake that has a monster in it. And a forest full of horrible things that will kill people. And a basement full of a deadly giant chess set. And that three headed dog protecting...the other basement? You have to ride in a rickety boat to even get to Hogwarts.

It just isn't a safe place for kids!

You don't attend Hogwarts, you just survive it.

(Anonymous) 2017-03-16 11:44 pm (UTC)(link)
kind of like real school. your friends die, but the mental scars are forever.

I would definitely prefer that. Hogwarts has always seemed too dangerous to me.

Yes! I very rarely want to be the hero of something, really I just want to be an extra and just exist in this magical worlds. I'm sure there are some examples where I want to be the star of the show, but I can't think of any off the top of my head.

Honestly, attending Hogwarts seems really stressful.

(Anonymous) 2017-03-16 10:54 pm (UTC)(link)
I'm not interested in any fantasy that involves going through school again, no matter how magical. Your idea sounds great to me, OP. :)

(Anonymous) 2017-03-16 11:14 pm (UTC)(link)
I like the idea of going to Hogwarts just like I liked the idea of college and graduate school. But realistically, all it did was stress me out and make me super mental. I'm pretty sure Hogwarts would make me a crying, anxious mess.

I'd love a little magic shop too, OP! I guess it's like cafe/coffee shop fantasies. The idea sounds totally relaxing and romantic. But on the other hand, it's a customer service job. Though somehow it seems like customer service would be less important if your shop sold really valuable magical stuff in the old-fashioned wizarding world. Like, you could tell people to fuck off and leave your shop. idk

Oh yeah also I'm pretty sure that photo is from the studio tour in England, right? Totally went there... twice. That alley was the coolest part, even cooler than the Hogwarts model.


(Anonymous) 2017-03-16 11:23 pm (UTC)(link)
I think part of why I like the idea of Going To Hogwarts is that, in the fantasy, all the actual hardships of school are replaced with an idealised sense of accomplishment and learning-related excitement. Sure, I'm procrastinating on no less than three papers, right now, but in Hogwarts, I'd be super awesome at magic and just so excited about writing essays and magic and and and it's... totally unrealistic.

And same, I think even costumer service would be slightly more pleasant. On the other hand, the wizarding world has some serious issues... For instance, I'd love to tell Lucius Malfoy to take his glorious hair and shitty personality out of my shop (and take that slimey kid of yours with you, you bastard), but then he'd probably just pay off someone (like Rita Skeeter) to publish a really nasty article about me and all would be ruined. I just got way too invested, didn't I.

I've never understood why anyone would want to go to Hogwarts. If your professors don't try to kill you at some point, a monster hidden in the castle will.

I always wanted to work for the ministry. Not doing important stuff. I remember there's a reference to the Muggle Worthy Excuses Department. That's where I wanna go.

I hated school enough in our world. Wizarding World school has the same garbage curriculum and thickheaded bureaucrat problems, and also you'll get killed by a troll.

That sounds really fun. :) I like this secret.

That is such a sweet little secret!

I mean, I would of wanted to go to Hogwarts, but I think that everything after just sort of confuses me (like, what in the adult wizarding world do I want to do?), I would be so conflicted

I misread the last sentence and thought OP meant they and the cat would own the shop together.

... Then I got really tempted to write a story about a witch who owns a shop in Diagon Alley and takes in what she thinks is a stray cat, but is actually a
(a) dangerous criminal,
(b) person framed for a crime,
(c) spy, or
(d) victim of a curse
and has been turned into a cat.

My high school was like the magic school from that Key and Peele sketch, but without the magic.
