Though I find this arrangement still a bit much for old eyes, it seems to be becoming more and more popular among the students, and so I thought I'd attempt to post a bit of homework here, as my job as your professor is to deliberately ruin every and all bit of fun you, as my students, have. And as I find sarcasm extremely hard to express in this manner, I'm going to state that that, Hogwarts, was a joke, and that anyone bringing sharp implements of revenge to my next class shall be laughed at.

The homework, however, I was quite serious about. As the term draws to yet another close, I should like to remind you that I haven't forgotten about those essays I mentioned in class at the beginning of the year. Every year shall be doing a research paper of varying degrees of length and involvement, based on at least one of the topics that we've covered in class this term.

First and Second years, you should be examining magical creatures indigenous to the United Kingdom, and please, for the love of Merlin, base your research on something other than the M.O.M rating system. We'll talk more about this tomorrow.

Third, Fourth, and Fifth years, you have the choice of either looking at magical creatures that are not usually found in our continent, or - with the cooperation of your own Professor Snape, perhaps - potions and antidotes most commonly used in the Dark Arts.

Sixth and Seventh years, you should be looking at curses, hexes and counter-spells, particularly the more unusual and subversive ones we looked at in the past month. If you need to look at some potentially less accessible information, please let me know what your plan is and, if approved, I'll be quite happy to sign a note for Madame Pince's perusal. Harry, this should be appropriate for your idea, I think, for example.

Details, and essay-lengths, will be distributed in the next class.

Mister Malfoy, you should speak to me about your situation, and what arrangements should be made. My door is always open, or at least, always receptive to knocking.

On a side note, Albus, thank you for the delightful dinner today. Our conversations were extremely enlightening.

Neighbors! [Apr. 25th, 2004|05:10 pm]
The Room of Requirement

Well, young witches and wizards, we've got some exciting news for you! That's right, we're moving in! Tomorrow we'll be making our way to Hogwarts to set up shop in a spare classroom in the East Wing, on the fourth floor. We're your new neighbors! Further proof that the Weasleys will never truly leave Hogwarts, eh?

Now, you may be wondering what possessed us to move into Hogwarts, since we had a very successful business going in Hogsmeade. Well, one day, while he was supposed to be tending Weasleys Wizard Wheezes, a certain somebody got distracted and wandered off. When he returned, he found that our shop had been burned to the ground by a freak fire. No idea what bloody happened there... although it might have been those new fireworks we were test marketing... or maybe Zonkos finally decided to knock out the competition? Of course, that certain someone was FRED. I, George, the responsible one, am typing this because I am better at it. I am too Fred. Oy, who's the one who figured out the SHIFT key thing? That's right, me.

Fred says to lay off on the shop thing. Who could know the shop would burn down the second he stepped out for a bit of air? Also, I am not responsible. Also, he just said something about my skills with my hands that I don't think I will be putting in here. What a wanker.

Oh well, at least the shop went out in a blaze of glory. Hardee har, Fred.

So, we are both looking forward to seeing some familiar faces on Monday! Ronnikins, you'd better stop by to see us, or we'll have to hunt you down. Miss Percy, we would love for you to stop by for some tea. Do wear that fashionable shawl and flowered hat that you always wear. It's so remarkably attractive... pink truly is your color. Ginny, we can't wait to see what new hexes you've come up with for us. Also, rumor has it that Charlie and Bill are in the vicinity? Might this be an entire family reunion? Oh, and Finnigan, we hear you've been keeping up the tradition, along with a new sidekick? Stop by tomorrow so we can catch up!

Also, Tuesday is our birthday! In celebration, we'll be hosting a little shindig upstairs in our new "shop". Everything half price! And food straight from Hogsmeade! Absolutely everyone is invited. It'll be a blast. ;)

Truly yours,
George & Fredrick Weasley
Esteemed Brothers of Percy Weasley, Official Ministry Liaison to Hogwarts

Some people have a horrible sense of humor. How...unfortunate for them. And how unfortunate that Malfoy and Weasley are in hiding after their incident. They truly should have witnessed what was going on in the Great Hall...

It would have been much more enjoyable if they had.

So. No official word even on that piece of filth Nott posted? Why isn't that being discussed?

Well, as soon as Professors Lupin and Snape agree, I'm calling the Order of Youth together so we CAN discuss it. If at all possible, could all of the House Heads be present at that meeting? You can choose the time that best suits all of you, if you want, but I think we need higher authorities to choose representatives for each House's students. I don't think this should automatically be prefects. I think the students should choose among themselves and have their House Heads approve the decisions. And then we need a Speaker, someone we have to shut up for no matter what. My vote is for Professor Remus Lupin, but you can vote for who you want. And vote in this post, please.


Prof. Lupin: 7
Prof. McGonagall: 6
Prof. Snape: 3

I'd like to do this as soon as possible, actually, and I want everyone to show up for this first meeting. After that, only representatives need to attend every other one (though others can still come if they want to, but the people who want to, say, study, can do that too), but this first meeting will be to choose the representatives, so everyone should be there.

So if Professors Lupin and Snape can agree to this, and everyone else could start to vote for a Speaker, all on this post, that would be great. We can't just let them scare us, and we WON'T.

Slytherin House Announcement [Apr. 24th, 2004|12:36 am]
The Room of Requirement

Tomorrow at 2 o'clock there will be a meeting of all house members in the Slytherin common room.

As many of you have far more productive activities planned for a Saturday afternoon, I will not keep you longer than an hour, and most of that I will contribute to discussion.

I advise all to attend.

Hello children.

My, it has been a while, hasn't it? Well, times change. I have changed, too, and for the better. To look upon me now would be to see one who has been made truly clean, perfectly whole. Oh, it burns, yes, but it burns so pure. It's not yet too late for others to taste this purity, and indeed any who treasure their lives should do so now before He lets loose another wave of purification altogether. Oh yes. The time is soon. That is why I am here at all.

You see, we are a people of compassion. We live and serve to do great things, but we understand the meaning of closure, and we wish all to have it, if they can. We seek not to weaken bonds, but to create newer, stronger ones. We seek to unify, but to make our new unions far, far better than the old could ever be. It is a hard process; I can understand your fears. He can understand them too, and so he calls upon me as Young Prophet to make this transition easier.

So today I come bearing an assortment of messages for the little disbelievers and the bigger ones, too. Pay attention now, class. He is doing you a kindness, a great kindness. He says to tell you that...

Five silver fingers bid passing greeting to moon-runner, and beckon him in. We all weep for the trials of red, for they are lost, so lost, and need to be found again. He will help them find themselves. Oh yes. Oh yes. And the star sings sweet kisses to the star thought winked out; she knows, she knows. Her smiles are sweetest to those who wake but never see, exist but no longer live. They shall be given release from their saintly prison. Soon, soon. And bones, black-eyed bones shall trip and fall on summer hols - poor dear. Poor dear. Let no pictures be taken; let no witness be borne. The shutter closes, too. The shutter closes swiftly, before the summer's through. So many, yes. We weep. We do. Let it be said that we tried to help, and that what we do is Good, so Good. Always.

Oh, and dragon walker? Your progenitor is calling.

Have a good day, children. Be Good. Be Pure. Be His.
