Um. I think the castle is going crazy again. It looks like everyone who's written anything lately is extremely confused or lost.

[Filtered to the Mystery Posse]

Are you guys okay? I'm kind of worried this is another one of those weird dark magic attacks like back on Halloween.

...Also, Professor Snow is gone now. I don't know what to make of that.

It seems the powers that be have quite the esoteric sense of humour. I arrive to take up my new duties and a large portion of the student body has been rendered incapable of reading anything more challenging than the most simplified versions of "Babbity Rabbity and her Cackling Stump".

In any case, greetings, Hogwarts. My name is Ezra Fell. Headmaster Dumbledore has requested I take up the mantle as Librarian of this school, as apparently my predecessor was found lacking in some way. Some of you may be familiar with the bookshop I run in Soho down in London; it's a popular location for youngsters to duck into to try to pluck up the courage to try to sneak into some of the more... illicit establishments in the area.

[VOICE]

Er, I might as well speak this part as some of the potentially interested parties may not be able to read at this juncture. If any of the small children would like to see a presentation of Muggle sleight-of-hand "magic", I am something of an enthusiast and would be pleased to put on a show.

Yo, it's been entirely too long since you all got a real homework assignment. Not something like those little study assignments I've been giving you. It's about time for another one of the real deals.

Since you're all on the same level, this goes to everyone. You've been studying basic phrases in Mermish, right? So it's time to put those to use. I want everyone to start inco


[But then the message stops for a few long moments. Ink drips onto the page as if he's dropped his quill. It's a while before anything more than inksplatters appears.]

Alright, that was weird! I just had like, a massive head rush or something. I don't remember coming into this room! And I don't even know whose journal this is, but I guess I got a teacher's journal by accident? I don't even know. But whatever. I hope they don't mind me using it, because I can't find my own.

This guy writes a lot of weird things.

Oh, I probably shouldn't be reading this, should I? Sorry! Please don't give me detention. I'm just kinda confused, I wasn't thinking. I'll pretend I didn't read anything.

So anyway, I've been here a few months now and weird things are still happening. Like me waking up in this room randomly, for example. Is that normal? Should I see a doctor? I know this place is magical, but still it's really freaking weird.

I should probably get out of here now that I think about it. I don't wanna be caught in some teacher's office without permission...

Also does anyone have any ink I can borrow? Because this black is really boring.


[So yeah, Bro is back to being a first year in the middle of writing a homework assignment and is kinda confused. On an OOC note, responses will come from [personal profile] brohoof]

DEAR STUDENTS AND FELLOW FACULTY,

I HAVE DISCOVERED THE GREATEST INVENTION OF MANKIND. IT'S ABSOLUTELY FLAWLESS.
I CAN'T BELIEVE THAT I DID NOT DISCOVER IT SOONER.
IT LOOKS SOMETHING LIKE THIS:




MY SOURCES TELL ME MUGGLES CALL IT A "SLINKY."

Things I have figured out about the incident a few weeks ago.

1. Whatever affected the school body as a whole had to have been something that didn't stand out, but also something that's not usually around.

2. The school body experienced mass hallucinations of a "doppelganger" - a shadow that looked like them that told the truth about themselves. People closest to those affected were able to see the shadows in return.

3. The memorial would have been an easy way to transfer an object in and out of the school without it being noticed to have "dark magical properties". Something part of the decorations.

In conclusion of my investigations, the object in question is either a) not here anymore and back in its owner's possession or b) in storage. But this proves that there's no need for the Ministry to snoop through our belongings because if the object was still around we'd still be affected in some way.

I must apologize for the delay in addressing the Halloween incident. You can rest easy knowing that I've been hard at work on the matter ever since it happened, contacting the Ministry and coming to the best course of action.

The Ministry and I believe that a powerful, dark magical object was brought into the school as a prank intended to make the ministry look like a fool for disregarding the incident at camp. The situation got out of hand, as you are all well aware of. As such, the Ministry has decided that in the next couple of weeks, security in the castle is going to be tightened considerably. Random trunk checks will be conducted and anyone leaving or entering the castle will be searched thoroughly, as will mail.

Finally, I will be questioning everyone personally. I will find out who did this, and I will make sure they are punished accordingly, expulsion being the minimum.

If you have any questions or information regarding the incident, you can ask here. If you have information, see me in my office immediately.

I'VE BEEN SEVERELY SLACKING IN ASSIGNING HOMEWORK AND FOR THAT I APOLOGIZE, NOT THAT MAY OF YOU HAVE REALLY MINDED. SO!

THIS ASSIGNMENT WILL SPAN ALL YEARS AND ALL HOUSES. I WANT YOU ALL TO TAKE A LOOK AT YOUR OWN FAMILY HISTORY AND TRACK DOWN THE FIRST TRACES OF MAGIC IN YOUR FAMILY. FROM THAT I WANT YOU TO MAKE A FAMILY TREE THAT STRETCHES DOWN FROM THEM TO YOU. I'M AWARE THAT THERE ARE AN AWFUL LOT OF SIBLINGS AND COUSINS AND OTHER RELATIONS HERE AT HOGWARTS SO DON'T BE AFRAID TO ASK FOR HELP FROM ONE ANOTHER WHEN FILLING IN GAPS. THE SAME GOES FOR FAMILY NOT AT SCHOOL. WRITE HOME, ASK QUESTIONS, ASK FOR FAMILY HEIRLOOMS OR PAPERS YOU CAN STUDY.

FOR STUDENTS WITH A HEAVY MAGICAL LINEAGE, DON'T FORGET TO INCLUDE NON-MAGICAL RELATIVES AND THOSE WITHOUT A LONG HISTORY OF MAGIC IN THEIR FAMILY, DO A BIT OF SEARCHING. YOU NEVER KNOW WHERE YOU MIGHT FIND A GREAT-UNCLE TWICE REMOVED WHO HAD A HABIT OF TURNING TAX COLLECTORS INTO NEWTS.

ONCE ALL IS SAID AND DONE YOU'LL PRESENT YOUR FINDINGS IN FRONT OF THE CLASS. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS DON'T BE AFRAID TO ASK HERE OR IN PERSON. MY DOOR IS ALWAYS OPEN.

[Added later:]

SINCE I'VE BEEN GETTING A LOT OF THESE QUESTIONS I FEEL LIKE IT'LL BE EASIER TO JUST LEAVE THE ANSWERS HERE.

1. PRESENTATION TO THE CLASS IS NOT MANDATORY IF YOU'RE NOT COMFORTABLE WITH IT. I'M OT GOING TO FORCE ANYONE INTO PUBLIC SPEAKING AND IT WILL NOT EFFECT YOUR GRADE.

2. STUDENTS WHO WERE ADOPTED MAY DO THEIR TREES BASED ON THEIR ADOPTIVE FAMILIES. FAMILY DOESN'T END WITH BLOOD AFTER ALL.

3. MUGGLEBORN STUDENTS SHOULD DO THE ASSIGNMENT AS NORMAL, JUST KEEP A LOOK OUT IN YOUR RESEARCH FOR ANY POSSIBLE MAGICAL RELATIVES.

ANYONE UP FOR A TRIP TO THE THREE BROOMSTICKS TONIGHT? I COULD USE A DRINK SOME COMPANY.

Here's an interesting hypothetical question for people - if two goats that had bezoars in their stomach and they were bred together, would their offspring have a bezoar?

Speaking of goats...Mabel, have you been overfeeding Orion again? He's starting to get fat and he won't fit those sweaters you made him anymore if that happens.

I SAW IT.

FROM MY WINDOW.

OUTSIDE. BY THE FOREST.


I KNEW IT EXISTED.

I'm sure you've all be wondering why I've had the ground outside of Greenhouse One plowed as I did. To answer that, I'm asking for volunteers to help finish the job. You're to be planting magical seeds within the garden. When they grow, the vines will snake over the the greenhouse, and then roses will sprout from within the vines. These plants are of my own creation, and once fully grown they're quite lovely. They are charmed to collect sunlight and filter it into the greenhouse as well, so they won't be blocking out the sun like you might expect.

I would like for a few students to volunteer for this task. Consider it penance for all of the trouble caused a few days ago.

Also, every student in my class are to meet this Monday in Greenhouse three. We will be planting and growing orchids for Professor Donoghue and Professor Matteris's wedding.

Love, when it's genuine, is a beautiful thing, wouldn't everyone agree?

[This is a delayed reaction brought to you by Dipper Pines.]

Norman! You were a ghost. A ghost! Do you have any idea how wrong that is? Like Orion suddenly talking and being split into fourteen separate mes wasn't crazy enough.

Anyway, I'm glad that's over. I'm a little disappointed I didn't find out anything about what was going on but there wasn't any spells I came across in text books that were even remotely like what was happening.

It doesn't really matter now, huh? Still, it was kinda weird. I guess I'm not used to things being so random around here yet.

Hogsmeade weekend's coming up...any other first and second years want to hang out in the castle since we can't go yet?
