DEADPOOL - “Oh, F***K Me” (High Quality) - Here’s that test footage that has been popping up all over since it leaked at comic-con, featuring Ryan Reynolds as The Merc With The Mouth - in crisp, clear video! Looks so much better! Watch now before it gets taken down.

WHY ISN’T THIS A FULL LENGTH THING THAT I CAN WATCH RIGHT NOW, OVER AND OVER AGAIN?

I’m really awful at things that have to be technical and precise, so I just accepted that and aimed for a sort of impressionistic view of DS9!

Oh shit

I think my tablet is dying

I’ve had it for like, six years so that makes sense but…. Ugh

CAN WE TALK ABOUT MIDDLE EASTERN WITCHES AND WIZARDS THOUGH. AND HOW THEY'RE SPELLS WOULD OBVIOUSLY NOT BE LATIN, GREEK OR ANGLO SAXON, BUT INSTEAD LIKE ANCIENT PHOENICIAN, OR SOMETHING. AND THAT THEIR TIES BETWEEN SPELLS AND MAGIC WOULD BE STRONGER SINCE THEIR WORDS ARE MORE ANCIENT AND FAR OLDER SO THEY'D BE WAY MORE POWERFUL???? SORRY FOR THE CAPS?????

NEVER APOLOGIZE FOR CAPS. PHOENICIAN SPELLS. ARAMAIC SPELLS. LANGUAGES MUGGLES DON’T KNOW ANYMORE THAT HAVE BEEN PRESERVED THROUGH WIZARDING SPELLS IN LITTLE POCKETS OF THE WORLD. SOURCE LANGUAGES NO ONE KNOWS HOW TO ADAPT OR CHANGE ANYMORE BECAUSE THE LANGUAGES HAVE DIED AND PEOPLE ARE AFRAID TO CAUSE LIKE, A NUCLEAR FALLOUT. IM SO EXCITED THANKS FOR THIS.

Witches in secret pockets of Morocco who’ve been casting spells with ancient spices long before wands came about. Warlocks in Egypt who knew the double, magical, meaning behind hieroglyphics. A dead language? Latin and Ancient Greek have NOTHING on hieroglyphs. The veritable cacophany of ideas and spells and magic that the trading routes brought in. The Phoenecians with their many-striped sailboats proudly displayed Persian potion ingredients alongside spelled fishing nets woven by Palestinian wizards. Syrian magical folk meet Greek ones, and realize they can best communicate in the Ancient Greek all serious magical students learn. Curly heads bent over ancient spellbooks, and people stare as they converse in a language not spoken for hundreds of years.

Excuse you but can we not forget the jewish lore masters, poring over their tomes in hebrew and aramaic, preserved from their exiled homeland into the diaspora.

And the development of a syncretic magic in yiddish that mixes the subtle lore and subtle word power of the exiled levantines with the raw brute force of germanic magics. — how else did the golem?

DIASPORA SYNCRETIC MAGICS

JEWISH WIZARDS

Yes to the Yiddish spells, too ;-)

Jewish wizards offering clothing to house elves and then constantly debating among themselves whether using a golem or other magically-created entity with some semblance of sentience for manual labor for years or decades is essentially the same thing as keeping a magical being for the same purpose.

See also: endless debates about whether one can use magic on Shabbat, and what sorts of magic qualify as “work”. Like, does it count if you enchant an object ahead of time?

Also debates over the extent to which Divination counts as the “witchcraft” detailed in the Tanach. Actually, I bet there’d be scholars compiling detailed tractates about which spells are kosher, using extensive biblical commentary.

JEWISH WIZARDS HAVING THEIR OWN EXTENDED TALMUD. HOW HAS THIS NEVER OCCURRED TO ME BEFORE??

YES PLEASE HERE FOR ALL OF THIS

Tractates about which spells are kosher and what ingredients one can substitute in certain potions, particularly the ones that call for any sort of blood; debates about whether it is forbidden to brew those potions for someone else’s use

At least one prevailing opinion that all forms of Divination must be avoided, since we don’t know which ones are the ones forbidden by the Torah; this is one reason why Divination is an elective rather than a requirement at so many wizarding schools

Many, many disagreements about what sorts of magic constitute “work” on Shabbat, especially with regard to instantaneous travel; Floo powder is out because it involves burning something, but Apparition might not be?  And does it count as     travel (which is prohibited on Shabbat past a certain distance) if you’re not actually traversing the miles between you and your destination?

Fuck if it counts as traveling, IT COUNTS AS CARRYING. Even if you keep it within the eruv (and are sure you will never make mistakes),  wands are likely mukzah.

Also, I see the need for serious questions about transfiguration in general. Do not ever transfigure ANYTHING that might come to be involved in food prep. Ignore all the issues about transfiguring an animal and shecting it and if you transfigure a pig into a chicken, because that gets into the issues of what is life and can you create it or are you just mimicing it, but THINK ABOUT THE TOVELING AND KASHRUS ISSUES. THINK ABOUT THEM AND WEEP FOR THE GEMARA YOU WILL NEVER STUDY.

(I am just sitting here going “yovel for house elves” and wanting allllll the fic.)

Ah, but!  BUT!  Does it count as carrying if you’re going from a private residence to another private residence without passing through public property on the way?  Surely eruv chatzerot is a precedent here?

(And wands are only mukzah if you assume a priori that there’s no shabbat-permissible use for them, which there easily could be!  Like knives; you can’t use one to kill a chicken on shabbat, but you can certainly use one to cut up cooked chicken.)

… oh god though, transfiguration, you are SO RIGHT.  o.O

But there is a distance in between! Unless you assume apparition bends space all Dune-like so that you are just stepping from one place to another without traveling in the in-between spaces. *imagines the machlokeses about maris ayin with glee*

I wonder if your wand/your magic would be considered a category of thing that would have to rest on shabbos, though. …I just had one of those “this logic train MAKES SENSE TO ME*, but the end result of which is: I NEED WIZARD BETZALEL.  CAN YOU JUST IMAGINE.

Someone actually really needs to write this book. (And it will not be me, godfuckingdammit. It will not be me.)
