From the Ashes
I will not bow down
I’ll rise through the sun
I’m transcending
Tonight, it feels like a good day to fly Tonight, it feels like the gods are alive Tonight, we turn, we ascend We believe our divinity

It’s a cute little thing though.

As I was saying, I’m a woman and can’t be taken for granted. Life’s a bitch, now so am I.

I’m a teacher and today two new students signed up at my school - three year old identical twin boys. Their names are Sora and Riku.

That generation is here.

It begins.

WIZARDING SCHOOLS AROUND THE WORLD: RUSSIA

The Russian Academy of Magic is a colossal onion-domed structure drifting aimlessly across the surface of Lake Baikal brought to existence using centuries of levitation charms perfected by a group of Russian witches experimenting with portable floating ice rinks. Self-heating fur scarves are all the rage amongst students and professors alike, although they have been known to overheat from time to time, leading to mild cases of heat stroke. When traditional Quidditch games become dull, players would discard their brooms for skates and duke it out on the frozen surface of the lake.

Russia’s past is rife with the loss and alteration of recorded history. Government, forced illiteracy, war, communism. Its stories are a patchwork of translated letters and oral tradition. Thus the Russian Academy of Magic prides itself on its specialization in recovering and preserving information. Never again will Russian witches and wizards allow their people to be robbed of their stories.

Graduates of the academy can restore the smallest scrap of document to its original form by drawing on the energy of the writer (because writing is, the school teaches, a form of low level charming in which part of the person’s life is imprinted on the object, and this applies to many arts. Even cooking. Coincidentally, Russians are experts in detecting poisons by this same method). Students practice the art of remembering. Graduates can pull memories long forgotten, help amnesia patients, and are masters of painless interrogation. Russian witches and wizards often prove themselves the most intelligent people in the room by a combination of their memorization techniques and pure determination.

As their final test, each student is given a small box they must open. The needed information is hidden within the school, and they must use their training to determine where it is hidden and how to extract it (for instance, it might be hidden in the mind of a friend, a sequence of dreams that must be remembered, they might need to locate a number of ingredients for a potion, it might be a riddle, or the information is held by a person whose identity they must determine). This proves their resourcefulness, ability to think outside the box, and the quality of their training.
