Dang, everyone has ENTHUSIASTICALLY jumped on the ‘let’s nerd out about Imperial information management protocols’ train and it warms every single cockle of my heart.

So, I just wanted to drop a few more links that I’ve picked up from archives Twitter, for those who have interest:  

How Not to Build a Digital Archive: Lessons from the Dark Side of the Force, from Preservica

(this basically ends with a plug for Preservica’s digital preservation services, lol – they’re a vendor that support preservation at various archives – but their points are extremely sound ones)

Let’s Geek Out Over All the Fascinating Technology Used In Rogue One, by Jason Torchinsky

(”Are there any words that get people more excited than large-scale, long-term data storage? I fucking doubt it” I feel a deep kinship with this stranger)

so last night i was rereading house proud by astolat, aka the best harry potter fic there ever ever was, & then i started having Thoughts about hp wizards being the descendants of the fae cuz it just makes!! so much sense!!!

i am perpetually disappointed by so much of jkr’s world-building but this in particular bothers me so much cause like

she placed so much emphasis on blood lines & ~purity but the only ever used it as a shite allegory for racism

u know who gives a thousand shits about blood lines? the fae. u know who goes to great lengths to exist separately from humans? the fae. u know whose society is split into groups based on personality? the fae!!

the evolution of wizarding society makes so much more sense!! if u interpret them as being fae adapting to the changing world!!!

no wait actually im not done

like just consider, for a second, hogwarts houses being based on fae courts

they align so perfectly??

hufflepuff is the spring court (cheerful, optimistic, peaceful); gryffindor is the summer court (fierce, bold, energetic); ravenclaw is the autumn court (serene, reflective, wise); slytherin is the winter court (aloof, harsh, unforgiving)

and that makes hufflepuff & gryffindor seelie, and ravenclaw & slytherin unseelie

so wizarding society is slowly shifting from the formality of courts to something more casual as bloodlines are diluted & muggleborns become more common

& then hogwarts is founded and cements the shift by making it formal but not directly connected to the old ways

which explains why wizarding society places so much importance on the house system, and why personality/character factors into it, and why slytherin has such a pureblood bias because of COURSE the winter court is going to be pickiest about it’s members

i am never going back from this headcanon this is my life now

OH SHIT Y’ALL QUIDDITCH IS TOTALLY THE WILD HUNT???

like what if it was literally originally the hunt. it gets more sport-like as bloodlines dilute & picks up more muggle elements as muggleborns increase but

originally, the snitch was a person & it was a hunt

cuz why else would catching the snitch end the game!!!

& over time the area hunts can pass through get smaller & smaller so they adapt, and the snitch becomes an enchanted object when wizards start becoming few enough killing each other for sport is a bit ridiculous, & muggleborns come along & suggest beaters and goals and a point system

but they never get rid of the snitch or catching it or that being The Goal because it feels right
