As I'm sure you have all noticed, some of you experienced newly awaken feelings for a classmate, or, if you're among the staff, a co-worker.

it appears the snake eggs I gave you all last week were transported in the same crate of some vials of love potion. While I can't claim to know exactly what happened, I can speculate with some certainty that at least a few of the vials broke during the trip. It is my belief that the eggs contained the fumes of the potion until they hatched, at which time they were released in the school's atmosphere.

Therefore, I ask that you do not alarm yourselves at the behaviour and feelings you or your peers displayed the past few days. I'm quite certain that they are not permanent and should fade soon.

Should someone still be concerned that they, or someone they know, is still under the effects of the potions, I'm sure professor Rhydderch will be glad to make you an antidote.

Thank you for your attention, and I hope nobody's Valentines day was too wrecked by this incident.

Yule Ball

After the thrilling match between Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw yesterday, I have some news to help fuel along your excitement. The match was so thunderous, I may need a new pair of earmuffs for the winter months. In less than a month, on the evening of December 24th, Hogwarts will be holding the Yule Ball. There will be a dinner, followed by a night of whimsy and dancing. During the month of December, various dress robe stores will be visiting the castle to take orders from the students in case they wish to have new robes or dresses. 'Students may look as elegant as they wish, and they may not wish to at all.

Now, what ball wouldn't be complete without the voting of a King and Queen of the ball? All students will be able to nominate students in years fifth through seventh for the title of King and Queen. As well, all students will be able to nominate students in first through fourth year for the title of Prince and Princess of the ball. All students, and staff if they choose to do so, are encouraged to nominate students until December 10th. On the morning of December 11th, we'll announce the nominees for final voting with the winners being announced at the ball. I'd ask for the female students not to go overboard with any campaigning. I do enjoy a good rally to get support, but in previous years, some of the students ended up charming others so much that we had no Queen due to all the nominees being in the Hospital Wing for a week. Madame Pomfrey doesn't wish for the wing to become a dance hall, though I am known to do a jig or two when leaving a check up.

Please direct all voting to the enchanted cup at the staff table in the Great Hall.

One last thing, Hogwarts has been fortunate enough to be put on the ghost tour of Europe. Many new and exciting ghosts will be visiting the castle during the month of December.

[[MOD NOTE: This is the post to nominate for Yule Ball King, Queen, Prince and Princess. Everyone is allowed to vote ICly. That means you are voting as how each of your characters would vote. If your character isn't the type to do something like this, you don't have to do it, but we'd like for every character to vote. You have until December 10th to do this. Then we will announce the top votes for about 3 - 4 in each category and you will be able to vote for the final results. Please fill out the text box and reply to THIS post with each of your characters answers. Comments are screened. Here is a link to the character chart for who is in what years.]]

Now that everyone has settled back in to the daily routine of school life, I have a few exciting announcements to make.

Firstly, I would like to welcome Professor Inquisitor Snow. I will be working with the Ministry to find out about the odd occurrences going on since last year. Please treat him like you would any other teacher at this school.

Secondly, next week we'll have our yearly week long talk about the human body and things that happen to it.

Thirdly, the first week of October, Professor Matteris and a few other Professors will be running survival training for any students wishing to participate. Those interested should meet her bright and early the first Wednesday morning in the Great Hall.

Fourthly, With Quidditch season starting next month, we'll be kicking off the season with a friendly match between the teachers. I would like the Heads of Houses to head off the two teams, but if they are busy, that is quite fine. There is an incentive of 100 House points to the winning team that has a Head of House on it.

Lastly, there will be many things for the students to look forward to in the coming months, this Halloween we will have a memorial for those lost during the war against Lord Voldemort and during December, we will have our yearly Yule Ball. The winners of King and Queen of the Yule Ball will get a certificate to Madame Puddifoots Tea House this year.

Good evening and welcome back to Hogwarts!

It is my dearest regret to say that due to recent storms, Gryffindor and Ravenclaw towers have undergone a severe amount of damage. While we work to put them back into tip top living shape, in the meantime our houses will have to get a bit closer than you're used to. Gryffindor will be staying in the Hufflepuff dorms, while Ravenclaw will share with Slytherin house. The repairs are estimated to finish in a week's time.

I ask that instead of focusing on the negatives, you should instead focus on the positives! After all, what better time for a little house unity? I trust the Prefects and Heads of House to set a good example for the rest of the students and to make the best out of a seemingly bad situation.

I hope that all of the staff and students are enjoying their summer holiday. I will let you all get back to that after a friendly reminder.

This summer London will be hosting a large Muggle sports event called the Olympics, as well as the Quidditch World Cup. The Ministry has asked myself to remind everyone to put their best foot forward with all of the international attention that will be on the city. You will not only be representing our Wizarding community, but Hogwarts as well.

I must congratulate the students and staff for the success of the weekends fundraiser. The school earned enough to keep the Library and Hospital Wing up to date for quite some time.

Students are to remember that exams are this week and to study hard. The next Minister of Magic could be born with an O on one of this weeks exams.

On Friday, Breakfast and Lunch will be served in your common rooms, so that the Great Hall can be set up for the dance. I know that everyone is excited for it, and hope that you all remember the train leaves the next morning. So don't stay up too late.

Lastly, I have an announcement for our staff. Hogwarts annual staff retreat has been booked and scheduled for June 25th to June 29th. The location is a surprise, so Portkeys will be set up at each of your homes, for quick transportation. It is of course, mandatory, for those who are new to Hogwarts staff, and very fun.

My, my. What ferocious dragons you have hatched. And a few that have not.

Attention must be paid to Misters Dave Strider and Wilbur Robinson, both of Gryffindor 3rd year for their tireless efforts in raising the happiest dragon. As a mark of your outstanding achievement, you have earned 50 points for Gryffindor and may keep Sean Pimpdaddy Connery. It is aptly named, I am sure.

Would the rest of the participants be so kind as to tell me what occurred with your eggs? After all, it does not do to count your dragons until they have hatched.

[ooc: Dragons hatch today! If your dragon breathes blue (which is better) or red (which is not as good, but not bad) sparks, you get points. If it breathes farts, you get nothing, and if your egg never hatched, well, you LOSE points. Have your characters comment here and tell Professor Dumbledore what you got. Talk to your partner about it first and TRY TO BE REALISTIC.]

It would seem there has been a case of the end of the term doldrums among the students. This is detrimental to your learning, yet I understand how tiring regular assignments are getting.

Thus, a few lucky students will be receiving a dragon egg to hatch in pairs as a sort of project on cooperation and care.

I am sorry to say that real dragons will not be hatching out of the eggs, they are mere toys. Regardless, good luck to you all and take care of your eggs!

[ooc: Dragon eggs are a go! React here or elsewhere as you will and have fun!]

Students and staff, I regret to inform you that we have a serious predicament on our hands.

I recieved word from the Ministry today that there has been a report of the use of an Unforgivable Curse by a minor, within the Hogwarts grounds.

While we do not yet know the identity of the individual that cast the curse, I can assure you that we will be doing everything we can to discover them, and anyone who may have had a hand in the affair. The safety of my students is my utmost concern.

Until the culprit or culprits are caught, I must insist that students take great care in the corridors. You shall be accompanied to and from classes by your professors, and I would ask that any free time is spent in your respective common rooms, rather than roaming the castle. Prefects, I must ask you your cooperation as well, to see that these rules are upheld.

I am truly sorry that such a thing should happen during what should be a time of peace and celebration.

I would like to request all staff members meet in my office at your earliest convenience.

((OOC: Feel free to comment to this post like you would any other! Teacher characters, please join in on the staff meeting :3))
