"I am a romantic. I hope everyone has those experiences where you have, whether it’s a date that lasted all night, or a date that lasted five seconds at a train station. Moments that were so personal, and so special it was hard to explain to somebody else.”
That face you make when you find weird shit at stores, and then offer it to your friend.
Azkaban Prison isn’t the only wizarding prison, in fact, there are countless others, scattered across world—some hidden in the dark necks mountains or submerged beneath deep pools of still waters, or even hidden in plain sight.
In the medieval wizarding age, one of the strongest prisons built was created on Avalon island, which today is now cloaked and hidden, somewhere in the Irish sea. It was created by the wizard Merlin, who was known to have a great quarrel with the witch Morgan Le Fey, and there imprisoned her for her crimes against the muggles on the coast of Wales.
Though today, some wizarding historians believe Morgan’s prison was very cruel, most believe it was an act of heroics by Merlin. No crime was truly cited for her imprisonment—varying in tales from cursing the peasantry to raising an army of inferi.
The prison still stands today, on a small island in which the great lady once lived in, and then, by Merlin’s command, lived there the rest of her days.
The island of Avalon disappeared soon after, only to be rediscovered by the W.A.G.O.W. (Wizarding Archaeologist Guild of Wales) in the late 1870s. The castle was investigated for only a month before the Ministry of Magic banned all research on Avalon, and magicked it back into the shadows—now drifting somewhere, hidden and barely touched.
The W.A.G.O.W. claim that no remains were found of the Lady Morgan, and no sign of a ghost lingered either. Some suggest she, being a witch of great abilities, managed to break Merlin’s hold on her prison, though this remains unproven.
