If we were looking at a proper, realistic reflection of the United Kingdom and Ireland at Hogwarts? Using a base student population of 400 to give everyone a minimum of one student, there’d be…
England: 317 students
Scotland: 33 students
Wales: 15 students
Ireland (Republic of AND Northern): 35 students
White - British: 303 students
White - Scottish: 29 students
White - Irish: 27 students
White - Other (continental Europeans, Americans, and assorted other Caucasians): 9 students
Asian or Asian British - Indian Subcontinent: 13 students
Asian or Asian British - Chinese: 2 students
Asian or Asian British - Other: 2 students
Black or Black British/Scottish/Irish: 8 students
Mixed: 4 students
Other (Arabs mostly): 2 students
Note that these numbers are not exact and I might add up to ±2-3 students because Ireland doesn’t report ethnicity in its censuses the same way as the UK or break it down as finely. But it gives you an idea of what your Hogwarts SHOULD look like if you’re one of those people who wants to get all politically correct on Rowling’s ass, or whine that the minority you’re a part of isn’t represented enough. Because look at some of those numbers, then look at her books, and realize… she left a lot of shit out, and most of them are a lot more significant to the culture and history of that region than your 0.43% of the region’s population.
i scared my sister halfway across a room with this
John Barrowman you are a grown man.
And this proves it.
REAL MEN ACT LIKE UNCOORDINATED ANIMALS.Sometimes. John Green, Johnny Depp, David Tennant, Matt Smith…
Things that are portrayed as weak and lame but in reality can probably beat the shit out of you and steal your lunch money then spend it on candy:
EVERYONE ON MY DASH IS WRITING IN ALL CAPS ABOUT LIKE 5 DIFFERENT FANDOMS AND I FEEL LIKE CHANDLER
“Wait…a Muggle healer? What do you need to see one of those for?”
“Isn’t St. Mungo’s good enough? You’re not dying or anything, are you?”
“For Merlin’s sake, Ron, I already told you-”
“I don’t get it. What do you need a Muggle healer-“
“What d’ya need a doctor for that St. Mungo’s can’t help you with?”
“Ron…we’re having a baby.”

It’s TENNANT TUESDAY! Go forth and use these glorious reaction gifs.
Today, we remember those of all Houses who fought bravely but lost everything in the Second Wizarding War while trying to defeat the dark. Let us also celebrate with those who finally, on May 2nd 1998, won.

I will never be able to watch the Doctor Who episode “Dinosaurs on a Spaceship” without thinking of Wash.

This is surprisingly accurate.
