Oh I admit it alright. They’ve all made me fall head over heels :3
Happy 25th Birthday Gavin!

These are coase grained igneous mineral assemblages, and often contain uncommon minerals (hence their economic potential).
They may have crystallised from a magma in the prescence of a magmatic aqueous fluid, and commonly contain quartz, feldspars, and micas, which can be mined for industrial uses.
The classical model for formation is that they precipitate late-stage magmatic minerals due to extreme fractional crystallization.
They have a large variety of target elements, depending on the type/locality. Some include Sn, W, U, Th, Li, Be, plus a whole lot more.
Depending on the type of granite, there are two groups of elements that are of use.
If it’s formed from an I-type granite, that is to say a granite where the parental magmas were produced by partial melting of predominantly igneous source rock, then the target elements are Nb-Y-F.
If it’s formed from a S-type granite, that is to say a granite where the parental magmas were formed by partial melting of predominantly sedimentary source rock (think crustal contamination) then the target elements are Li-Cs-Ta-(B).
Jahns and Burnham model for pegmatite development: they attribute the transition from granite to pegmatite due to H20 saturation in the magma. They say that pegmatites form in the presence of a separate aqueous/volatile fraction of the magma, which explains the large crystal size. This is because volatiles lower the solidus temperature of the granite AND allows more efficient diffusion (migration of the major-elements into the H20-saturated fraction).
Brief side-note on I- and S-type granites.
I-type: as stated above, come from a magma produced by partial melting of predominantly igneous source rock. They are more oxidised, and produce Cu-Mo-Au mineralisation and form porphyry/epithermal deposits.
S-type: formed by partial melting of predominantly sedimentary material, and are less oxidised due to the presence of graphite. These produce Sn-W (-U) and are granophile deposits, that is to say a granitoid-related mineral deposit

I HAVE A MIGHTY NEED
fun fact: people never believe that about me but i rEALLY LOVE CIRCLETS BUY ME ALL OF THESE I AM BROKE
….You realize, of course, that Hermione Granger lit a teacher on fire when she was eleven, and kept a person alive in a jar for a year when she was fourteen, and studies dark and forbidden magics for kicks, and is one of the brightest and strongest witches of her era. If she came at me, even wandless, I would aparate to Neptune to get away from her.
Hermione Granger also:
- punched Draco Malfoy in the nose for being an idiot
- purposefully performed a confundus charm on whatshsface WHILE HE WAS FLYING just so Ron would win (omfg that is so fucking dangerous)
- literally pulled a fucking Bourne Identity on her parents and managed to set them up in fucking Australia (jesus christ she literally made it so that she NEVER EXISTED wtf that’s so fucking 007)
- Convinced the Ministry of Magic to give her an incredibly dangerous and volatile device that allowed her to ALTER TIMELINES COMPLETELY (just because she was so smart, literally, that is the reason, her “potential”)
- Has enough basic survival skills and badass magic to literally disappear to the middle of nowhere and flourish AND figure out Voldemort’s plot with Harry
- Hermione also figures out not only what Voldemort’s plan is, but generally how to beat it, WAY BEFORE VOLDEMORT EVER DOES. Why? because she is just that much smarter and better at magic than everybody else
in conclusion: Voldemort wishes he could be as awesome as Hermione, that’s why he wants to kill her so bad.
Can we rehave this series with hermione as the protagonist.
Hermione Granger and “That Time I Used the Power of Research and Deductive Reasoning to Make Sure Harry Didn’t Die”
Hermione Granger and “That time I figured shit out and literally ended up petrified for the cause and it took my friends weeks to figure out that I had the research on me”
Hermione Granger and “That Time I Was a Time Lord”
Hermione Granger and “That Time I Realized I was Hot and Smart and Saved Harry’s Ass with Research. Again. All the Time. Really, He Would Have Died Without Me.”
Hermione Granger and “That time Harry was too emo to actually do shit so I did shit in his name because I am the power behind the throne clearly also PS fought evil deatheaters and won”
Hermione Granger and “That Time I told Harry about the Dangers of Copying off Somebody’s else’s work that wasn’t mine and OH LOOK I WAS RIGHT”
Hermione Granger and “That Time I let Harry Decide Where to Go and What To do and we ended up wandering the forests of dean for like 5 months before saving his ass at Hogwarts”
Perfect cast is perfect

I love the look on Martha’s face.
Because I bet she read that Sonnet when she was in school.
And the realization that that fucking sonnet is going to be about HER RADIANT BLACK BEAUTY!!!
Martha Fucking Jones gets POETRY written for her that lasts through the ages.
The Doctor’s faces are killing me!
I actually find this really great because NOBODY KNOWS who “the dark lady” is. There are various sonnets composed for/about her, but nobody knows her identity.
I wonder if Martha ever reads that particular sonnet or hears someone reading it in a movie or on telly and just kind of smirks to herself because she knows it was written about her
i bet she feels really proud for stealing shakespeare’s heart
