This is one of my favorite episodes of TNG
I am tired of being used, hurt, and cast aside. Adelina Amouteru is a survivor of the blood fever, a deadly illness. Many of the children who survived were left with strange markings. But some of the survivors are rumored to possess more than scars—they are believed to have mysterious gifts, and though their identities remain secret, they have come to be called the Young Elites. Teren Santoro works for the king. As Leader of the Inquisition Axis, it is his job to seek out the Young Elites, to destroy them before they destroy the nation. He believes the Young Elites to be dangerous and vengeful, but it’s Teren who may possess the darkest secret of all. Enzo Valenciano is a member of the Dagger Society. This secret sect of Young Elites seeks out others like them before the Inquisition Axis can. But when the Daggers find Adelina, they discover someone with powers like they’ve never seen.
A full 50 pages of The Young Elites is now up for reading. Hope you guys enjoy!
I do like reading headcanons but why is it always about purebloods and muggleborns? Half-blood wizards and witches are the most numerous and already have a foot in muggle culture. It’s not just muggleborns who would want a wifi password or wish there was TV and Netflix not just the wizard wireless network. Half-bloods with one wizard/witch parent would especially be involved in the muggle world, they have muggle grandparents and cousins and probably muggle friends from primary school - Seamus Finnegan’s family life must be interesting.
Once they’ve left school they might choose to live permanently in the wizarding world but when they’re at home for the summer it’s muggledom all the way.
Now I’m imagining a sort of wizarding Buzzfeed full of stuff like “26 Things All Half-Blood Kids Know to be True” and “18 Problems You Have Explaining Stuff to Your Muggle Cousins” and “15 Fights Your Parents Have When One’s a Muggle and the Other’s a Wizard” and articles debating which is better between various Muggle and wizarding sports teams, bands, books, etc…
I had a conversation with intrepidclass (like three months ago whoops) about Star Trek and languages where we were discussing whether or not Federation Standard is actually English or if we just hear it that way because, ya know, U.S. show. We leaned towards the latter, which if it’s the case that Federation Standard is some sort of linguistic amalgam of various languages, then does it function as anyone’s native language or does it mostly serve a diplomatic function and a backup for the breakdown of the UT? We liked the idea of most Federation citizens being bilingual (at the very least), learning their own language and Federation Standard as well, as that promotes the celebration of cultural diversity and resists linguistic colonization while still being conducive to cooperative efforts. And maybe your average Federation citizen doesn’t really use Federation Standard that much in their daily lives, we just see it more because Starfleet.
Anyway, that got me to wondering what everyone’s native languages would be so I compiled a list behind the read more. Some of my choices are obviously canon, but others are guesses (or even maybe wishful thinking). Obviously, some of the characters, especially Uhura and Hoshi, speak many languages, but to keep things simple I just kept it to the language/s the character probably spoke in their home communities. I’m curious about other people’s thoughts on this? Any canon languages I missed? Disagreements over my interpretations? Your own linguistic head canons?
Oooh, this is fascinating and mostly tallies with my thoughts! Although my headcanon for Deanna is that she’s of Greek-American descent on her father’s side, so maybe she has a smattering of Greek too.
As far as Worf’s concerned, given that it’s implied he has a connection to Minsk, perhaps his parents speak Belarusian as well as Russian or Ukrainian. And, if you read them as Jewish as many do, maybe Yiddish too.
For Keiko, since Rosalind Chao is actually of Chinese descent, I like to imagine she has Chinese as well as Japanese heritage - maybe on her father’s side, since we know her mother lives in Japan.
I’d love to know how Earth languages would have changed and evolved by this point!

1. Seriously, poor Jack! :(
2. I already went to bed, this is insomnia blogging! But I’ll try to sleep again now…
I hear they were originally planning to go that way, but Picard as played by Patrick Stewart was so honourable that they didn’t think it would be believable that he slept with someone else’s wife.
Aww, it’s nice to have friends who understand you. :)
