oh my god this just came up in my tag and i am screaming

linguistics in the wizarding world

because there are the default greco-latin

but oh my god.

oh my god

wizarding schools around the world have their spells with roots in their language families (ie. indo-european to germanic, north germanic ,then splitting to eastern/western germanic, creating the differences in incantations between danish/icelandic taught spells)

imagine

a wittiness recognising the effects of the spell but the incantation is completely different to that which is being used in the us or the area the ~ crime is being committed

and the dialects (ie. same spells having varied incantations from like louisiana v. boston) which may only lead to small deviations from the “textbook” incantation

then in high-population ethnic areas, what spells/languages are being used/taught at home (ie. someone from an italian family in say long island may deviate from what is taught at their wizarding school – assuming it is a country-wide catchment, assuming greco-latin like hogwarts) may use the incantation of their ethnicity, rather than what they’ve been taught at school

Hotch having to deal with unforgivable curses in the foyet!arc

Are you shitting me??? Who gave you the fucking right.

Also Reid and Morgan would totally be down with PRANK WARS OMFG.

oh man that one killed me though.

i think both of them hotch and foyet would be disarmed. the same as hotch never goes for the headshot while armed during 100, it would end up much the same with the exception of uncontrollable wandless magic

A problem to be solved is why the magic energy flowing through the wizard does not affect sensitive molecules within the wizard (self-absorption problem). This may be explained by assuming that the energy pattern itself is formed in the fingertips or the eyes of the spell-caster. (Wandless spells needing eye contact seem to indicate that this is a possible means of magical energy transportation, too.)

via hp-lex

jesus christ even while both (particularly hotch) are disarmed a shit load of damage would be done to and by both of them as it becomes purely physical (hotch is muggleborn and i will accept no other opinions), any contact of skin or eye contact could be disastrous.

hotch would of course win (not just because that’s how the story goes) but because his emotions are running too high. the only way foyet feels emotion is by inflicting pain, and that does not go to the same degree as hotch’s pure grief and fury.

the temptation to use unforgivable curses (the headshot, basically) had come to him before, say in the minutes before haley dies, as he hears the shot, but once he’s running on instinct and adrenaline alone, none of that comes to mind because that isn’t who he is.
