History meme:Olympias c. (375–316 BC)

Olympias was the wife of the Macedonian King Philip II and the mother of Alexander the Great. She was suspected of involvement in the assignation of her husband, amongst many others, to secure her son’s leadership. Wielding great influence within Macedonia, first during Alexander’s long battle campaigns, Olympias enjoyed periods as mistress of Macedonia.

A devout worshipper of Dionysus and, reputedly, a sorceress Olympias was said to have kept pet snakes. The sorceress claimed that Alexander was descended from the gods, insisting that Zeus, King of Gods, had taken the form of the wind, moving through the leaves of the age-old oaks as she slept below and had impregnated her. Another version tells that Olympias dreamt of a snake that slowly slithered between her legs as she slept. She dreamt that its seed mingled with the seed of her husband. A variation on this story states that Olympias was impregnated, not by King Philip, who was afraid of her practice of sleeping in the company of snakes, but by Zeus alone. Both Philip and Olympias dreamt of their son’s future birth. In Philip’s dream, he sealed her womb with the seal of the lion. Alexander was said to have the character of a lion.

WIZARDING SCHOOLS AROUND THE WORLD: MEXICO

Disguised as a Mayan ruin in the jungles of Chiapas, the Mexican School for Enriched Magical Studies is a sturdy moss-covered structure blanketed by lush greenery. The students are no strangers to muggle tourists ambling about, and will often pose as fellow tourists or locals and interact with them, making them one of the most outgoing, lively, and tolerant communities in the wizarding world. For festivals, students like to don vibrant headdresses, and the school becomes a kaleidoscope of colour as girls twirl around like tops, their skirts lifting up into the air, filling empty space with colour and painting the school with embellished splendour. The campus often reverberates with music from the school’s ghost mariachi band who plays cheerfully day and night; although it tends to get annoying at times, the constant activity makes the school feel like home.

And what about you? What are you going to do next?
Well… back to the TARDIS. Same old life.
On your own?
Why? Don’t you want to come?
Well yeah.

“I was seven when Walder Frey persuaded my lord father to give my hand to Emm. His second son, not even his heir. Father was himself a thirdborn son, and younger children crave the approval of their elders. Frey sensed that weakness in him, and Father agreed for no better reason than to please him. My betrothal was announced at a feast with half the west in attendance. Ellyn Tarbeck laughed and the Red Lion went angry from the hall. The rest sat on their tongues. Only Tywin dared speak against the match. A boy of ten. Father turned as white as mare’s milk, and Walder Frey was quivering.” She smiled. “How could I not love him, after that? That is not to say that I approved of all he did, or much enjoyed the company of the man that he became… but every little girl needs a big brother to protect her. Tywin was big even when he was little.” She gave a sigh. “Who will protect us now?”
