Q When I first saw your schools... I was stunned. So much work, so many thoughts, such beauty and wisdom. With these little gifsets you expanded HP world, let it grow from small island into whole planet. And, even if you stop right now and never do more, you are Mother of the Planet, Giver of Lives. Thank you :) (the-raven-of-blue)

Mother of the Planet, Giver of Lives. I could live with that. I should put that on my business card.

Q @ the person who talked about the Yolngu people, obviously this wizarding school isn't nomadic in the traditional sense where their shelter needs to be portable and/or temporary? It's an island. Huts are fine. In fact, I'd wager magical huts would probably be more sturdy than a lot of 'muggle-made' buildings. The school doesn't need to represent every single Indigenous sub-group jfc. I can't believe this much fuss is being made about this perfectly fine headcannon (amazing pics btw). (Anonymous)

"The school doesn’t need to represent every single Indigenous sub-group jfc" oh god thank you. And also I imagine "magical" huts would be more sturdy than muggle-made huts because they’d be able to reinforce it with their magical shenanigans.

Q I just wanted to say that all the bashing/criticism you're getting isn't fair at all. You're just making something that you you like and are blessing the rest of us by sharing it for us all to see. You're putting so much time and effort into not only finding videos and making gifs but also doing research and trying to make sure you don't offend anyone. That's more than some people are paid to do at their jobs everyday and you should be praised. So thank you for sharing your beautiful work. (Anonymous)

Q Indigenous Australian culture is so much more complex than what you've portrayed it to be. I get that you're not Australian so everything you're going off is through your own research, but I think you should do a bit more research next time. For example, the Yolngu people are nomadic and so their shelters wouldn't have lasted beyond a season. Also, I have lived in Australia my whole life and never have I heard the term "friendly" applied to ANY of our fauna. (Anonymous)

It’s a fucking floating wizarding school for god’s sake I think I am entitled to a few fictitious inserts. I don’t think you understand that I’m not trying to capture every single aspect of a given culture in my posts. I recognize that Indigenous Australia culture is very complex, but I’m not writing an in-depth essay on Indigenous Australian culture. It’s just a headcannon for an Australian wizarding school. I think I’ve done ample research for a fictitious school that I’ve pulled out of thin air!!! Also, you will do well to notice that I actually wrote “unusually friendly” which acknowledges the fact that your fauna isn’t often characterized as “friendly”.

Q Um, I think New Zealand is so much more water based? Well you know what I mean. But it's a fact that no part of New Zealand is more than 128 kilometres away from the sea, so I don't think Australia would be 'held in high esteem by the international wizarding community for its innovations in water magic'. (Anonymous)

I think Australia would be held in high esteem for its innovations in water magic because it’s my headcannon.

Q Thank you so so much for including Aboriginal representation in your Australian Wizarding School! I am indigenous myself, and it really meant a lot that someone could point out that /that/ was how Australia was before british colonization, and how the magical community wouldn't be influenced too heavily by the changes in muggle culture.

I’m just glad I could do it justice (:

Q OMFG, Thank you so much! I love the Australian one! and as an Aboriginal, I really have to thank you, cause OMFG this is brilliant, just imagining a school like that is fucking wonderful, and the idea that it was there before white settlement is fucking beautiful, I LOVE YOU SO MUCH (mother-of-all-monsters)
A

Yay I’m glad you liked it! I actually had so much fun doing research for the school because Aboriginal culture is so interesting to read about.

WIZARDING SCHOOLS AROUND THE WORLD: AUSTRALIA

Originally located in Arnhem Land, The Australian College of Sorcery and Witchcraft was a sprawling campus of large huts that eventually coalesced into one single structure. The college detached from mainland Australia soon after British settlement in order maintain their practices and culture. Ever since, the school has been drifting haphazardly in the ocean, although it never strays far from the Australian coast for ancient magic keeps the school tethered to Australian soil. Every year, a team of witches and wizards must be employed to anchor the floating campus so students aren’t forced into a cat-and-mouse chase at the beginning of the year in order to attend school (a frustrating endeavour which often results in the postponing of classes due to a large number of absences). To students’ great enjoyment, various creatures (including the occasional mermaid) can often be found sunbathing around the perimeter of the campus which gently slopes into the water. Due to their exposure to unusually friendly oceanic creatures, the college boasts incredibly extensive courses in aquatic-life studies, and is held in high esteem by the international wizarding community for its innovations in water magic.
