And now we can all faint over the fact that Mr. Smith has been cast in Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, based on the adapted novel by Seth Grahame-Smith.
History of Ireland 1883
This is the first part of a series that I will be discussing women and girls in literature, poems, mythology, films, etc. that meet profound misfortune. I’m fascinated by stories of women who fall victim either to circumstances, the nefarious intentions of others, or to their own carelessness, and the implications that follow. Though I could go on for ages with analyzing these stories with political and gender-specific orientations, I don’t care to do so. I have very strong feelings on those matters, but in this case, I want to treat these stories as just stories with only the lightest touch of political and social commentary. I like a heavy dose of tragedy in my literature and I’m very excited to share these beautiful, utterly depressing stories with you.

There are a number of unique Patronuses in the wizarding world of Harry Potter. We’re given a first glimpse of Harry’s own Patronus in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban as he conjures a regal stag under the direction of Professor Remus Lupin. Later in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Harry himself imparts his Patronus knowledge onto his fellow classmates in order to battle the forces at work against the good of Hogwarts, and we see Ron conjure a Jack Russell terrier, a hare from Luna Lovegood, and a swan from Cho Chang. Later in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, we see that both Severus Snape and Lily Potter shared a doe, with Lily’s form being a complimentary creature to James Potter’s stag. But it’s Hermione Granger’s otter Patronus that shares a curious link with J.K. Rowling’s own.

Structure of the World, De Naturæ Diuinis Characterismis, 1575-ZM
"The Alnwick Poison Gardens in Alnwick, England was established in 2005 by the Duchess of Northumberland. The grounds contain nearly 100 deadly plants that produce poisons or hallucinogens. Some are so dangerous, they are displayed only behind glass. And yes, there are opium poppies, cannabis, and magic mushrooms as well, but you can’t get close to them. Read about the poison gardens and other strange gardens that are (or once were) open to the public around the world in a list called Gardens of Death and Other Horticultural Marvels at Atlas Obscura."
Chateau Nottebohm, municipality of Brecht, province of Antwerp, Belgium (Vince)
"This abandoned home belonged to a Mr. Nottebohm and dates back to the early 20th century. There are postcards which feature this home that were published in 1908. There are rumors and tales that at one time the wealthy German family lived in this grandiose Belgian manor but left sometime during the second World war. After the war, Mr. Nottebohm never returned and the eccentrically styled house has been abandoned ever since.
Much of the interior is destroyed with access to the upper floors either difficult or impossible. Suggestions indicate that stability of the stately home is very bad and seems ready to collapse at any moment. The manor was thought to be haunted as well and the LPI – International (League of Paranormal Investigators) even did a case on the Nottebohm Mansion but it proved inconclusive.” (abandoned playgrounds)
