i want a jaynestown kinda thing w/ star trek where they land on a planet and yeah they’re pre-warp and pretty primitive but yeah fuck the prime directive because there’s like a plague there and bones isn’t going to let all those people die so he kinda sneaks the medicine and stuff to them and they leave and kirk is like “ok there’s pretty much no way we’re gonna get away with this so we were never here”
and then like ten years later they’re sent to check on a planet and whoops it’s the same planet that bones helped so kirk is like ok we go in, write a report and stuff, and get out and hope nobody notices us. and they beam down and there’s a giant goddamned temple dedicated to mccoy. paintings and sculptures and shit and it’s kinda crude but still clearly recognizable and they’re standing there in shock staring at this giant fuckin statue of mccoy like holy shit we are in so much trouble and spock just goes “this must be what going mad feels like.”

The Gaelic YearsScottish wizards always had a hard time of it when they came to Hogwarts. First, and most obviously, was the fact that they would be missing out on their final year of primary school if they left at age eleven. The pureblood families didn’t mind so much, but Muggleborns were often faced with the hard decision about which was better - full primary Muggle education, or a proper start at their hidden wizard heritage? Most opted to leave the primary schools, which often put their parents in extremely difficult situations.But secondly, there was the additional factor that until 1603, the two countries had existed independent of each other. They had fought against each other at Culloden, Bannockburn and Flodden, assassination attempts had been made on both sides (primarily during performances of Macbeth, where wizards playing the witches, in an act of patriotic defiance, shot out Stunning spells at the audience and once, the watching courtiers), but the worst offence, in the Scot’s opinion, was after the Jacobite rebellion of 1745, when the English victors banned tartan, bagpipes, and Gaelic.Until then, no unified schools had been set up to teach young wizards and witches in Scotland - those lucky enough to be born into a family were taught in the home, while the few Muggleborns were killed in infancy - and, particularly in the Highlands, many spells were performed in Gaelic, the mother tongue of Scotland, there since Columba came over from Ireland to convert them to Christianity. Due to this tragic ban, many clever and innovative spells - including the early forms of basic incantations now used to fortify the soil before any magical plant is moved into it (not created by English wizards until the mid-seventeenth century), and the template for the smokeless blue flames so many lost travelers mistook for will o’ the wisps - were lost. Those few brave witches and wizards who kept Gaelic spells alive were found out by any number of English wizards and had their spells forcibly Obliviated from their minds.After the Second Wizarding War, Scottish wizards campaigned to be allowed to host their own wizarding school.They were declined.(written and submitted by theteaisaddictive. theteaisaddictive melds genuine history with magical worldbuilding to give us a sharp view of how we might read the British wizarding world, so rarely seen from this side in the books. Seeing people deepen the canon like this, personalize it, bring their own understanding to it, and do so in a well-written, thoughtful fashion like this, is one of my favorite things about running this blog. Thank you, theteaisaddictive!)
