HP Goblet of Fire Headcanon: Beauxbatons was primarily a Muslim wizarding school.

This is actually a really probable and possible headcanon, and not just because of the highlighted lines. For those of you who don’t know - during the ever-lovely age of Imperialism, when Western Europe invaded other countries for shits and giggles, and the sun never set on the British Empire, France invaded Northern Africa.
Nowadays, it’s called the Maghreb, and it is comprised of Algeria, Libya, Mauritania, Morocco, Tunisia, and declares French to be an official language. It is an area in which Islam is the official, and most popular religion, and an area from which the majority of France’s immigrant population is drawn.
While it is entirely likely that the countries of the Maghreb have their own schools, the immense, and growing population of French speaking, Muslim immigrants in from the Maghreb to France drastically increases the likelihood that even an upperclass school such as Beauxbatons would include a portion of students from that demographic. And I think that’s just really cool.

Now this is something that I won’t damn miss.
”He’s not your son, Molly.”
”He’s as good as.”
So since they fucked the book, I’m gonna tell you how it went. In the book, Molly, singlehandedly, for what may well have been minutes, instead of the brief exchange of the movie, dueled Bellatrix, with the potency their spells and hexes causing heat damage and even vitrification of the cobblestones beneath where the hexes met.
She endured taunts by Bellatrix regarding her dead son, and delivered a kick-ass line during it, “NOT MY DAUGHTER, YOU BITCH!”, having screamed it as she came buckwild, and threw herself fully into a duel to the death. It was never explicitly stated what curse Molly used, but only that the force caused Bellatrix to freeze up, before collapsing, having been hit directly in the heart. This is indicative a trauma-inducing spell, perhaps Bombarda. This also shows her proficiency in silent magic, as she never spoke a word outside the screamed words of rage.
Not only, but Molly endured the loss of her brother, and the emotional pain of being disowned by her son, and then losing another son forever. Molly Weasley, is arguably one of the most powerful witches of her generation. She’s also a kick-ass cook and a really nice lady, so watch out.
