I’m playing a Jesuit priest, and Adam Driver and I are brothers in the priesthood. We play these young, idealistic, hungry priests who are on a mission to bring faith to the hidden Christians of Japan during that time, that weren’t allowed to be Christians under this extremist Buddhist regime that was happening during that period — you don’t usually associate the two things. So we’re on a mission to find our old teacher who’s gone missing. It’s a rescue mission as well as a mission of faith and a mission for God. I’ve been researching a lot about what it is to be a Jesuit and it’s a very beautiful faith as far as I’m seeing. I haven’t been religious all my life, but I definitely feel a need for spirituality in my life and I’m in the process of finding out what that means for me. It’s a beautiful process to go into. It’s something I’ve been longing for all my life.
We did a funny thing in the beginning. Dylan and I are both huge Friends fans, so in the beginning of the show - I think it was when we shot the pilot, either the pilot or when we were shooting the first season - we had labeled each other all the Friends characters. Posey was Joey. Dylan took Chandler. Colton Haynes who played Jackson, who he is no longer with us sadly, was Ross. And I got Richard, I was Tom Selleck. I was like the cool guy that wanted to hang out with Joey and Chandler.
The significance of Lydia being in the dream, is it basically because she’s in his heart? Oh well, yes. That’s absolutely why she’s there. I thought that was really clever. That would totally be one of Stiles’ dreams. You know, people who you hold in your heart, in your mind and soul. I’m sure Stiles dreams about Lydia like every night, you know? It’s just a common thing. - Dylan O’Brien (x)

Good fucking Christ.
So if we have to show women what the baby looks like in their womb and tell them how the process works before allowing them to get an abortion, does that mean we should teach our soldiers about the culture of the lands we’re invading, and explain to them that the people we want them to kill have families and feel pain, just like Americans?
WIZARDING SCHOOLS AROUND THE WORLD: AUSTRALIAOriginally located in Arnhem Land, The Australian College of Sorcery and Witchcraft was a sprawling campus of large huts that eventually coalesced into one single structure. The school separated from mainland Australia soon after British settlement in order escape diseases that killed a large portion of the indigenous population. Ever since, the school has been drifting haphazardly along the Australian coast. Every year, a team of witches and wizards must be employed to anchor the floating campus so students don’t have to go on a cat-and-mouse chase at the beginning of the year in order to attend school (a frustrating endeavour which often results in the postponing of classes due to the lack of a present student population). Due to the campus’s exposure to ocean-life, the College of Sorcery and Witchcraft boasts incredibly extensive courses in aquatic creature studies, and is held in high esteem by the international wizarding community for its innovations in water magic.
