Catering to western students in the vast land of Canada, the Banff Academy of Magical Studies is a sprawling château-style structure nestled comfortably in the snowy peaks beyond Lake Louise. The students have opted for stylish layered knitwear in place of traditional wizard robes, and are often named some of the most fashionable amongst the international wizarding community. Every winter, students would don their warmest clothing and spend hours outside casting adhesive charms on the walls of the academy so falling snow would later stick to the exterior, transforming the school into a frozen palace.

Training in trilingual magic — the traditional Latin based stuff taught at Hogwarts, but English based and French based forms too. Courses in a minimum of two more magical-linguistic traditions are mandatory because of the strong multicultural emphasis the school has.

Magical Theory involves exposure to various local First Nations traditions (field trips around the country intended for further, broader exposure!), and History of Magic teaches about colonialism and the interaction between Aboriginal and European magics.

What is the half-life of information? Does its rate of decay correlate to the medium that conveys it? Pixels need power. Paper is unstable in fire and flood. Letters carved in stone are more durable, although not so easily distributed, but inertia can be a good thing…
…Does the half-life of information correlate with the decay of our attention? Is the Internet a kind of temporal gyre, sucking up stories, like geodrift, into its orbit? What its its gyre memory? How do we measure the half-life of its drift?

I’m seriously getting in to this book. I didn’t think I’d enjoy it, but here we are. It’s resonating — this quote especially — and I cannot place my finger on quite why; I’m still working on wrapping my head around it. As already stated then, here we are
Well, she’s not wrong.

Someone please tell me I am not the only one who remembers these dorks.
They are the perfect satire of the glorious, cheesy 90s boy band phenomenon.
Also, come on. With a song like “The Hardest Part of Breaking Up (Is Getting Back Your Stuff)”, how can you NOT press play here?
Best. Cliffhanger. Resolution. Ever.
And then of course it went to it’s room, and that caused a whole load of other problems.
This episode is the best.
