A quick, albeit belated thank you to those who attended the party my fiancé threw for me.

Now, on to things that are more relevant to the present. It's time for your homework assignments. I'll try to keep things brief, because I have a lot of planning to do still. I quite frankly don't have the time to spend pouring over your essays.

So, what I want the lot of you to do is write eight to sixteen inches on everything you've learned in Charms. Yes, this is for all years, and yes, I do want you to cover every year of Charms you've had. Naturally, I expect longer papers from students in higher years.

Please get them to me shortly.

Now that everyone is done celebrating boorish feats of strength, I was wondering if I could get 5-10 volunteers to help me test a new spell that I've been working on. It's a very simple security spell, and I can guarantee with 82% certainty that you won't get hurt if you agree to be a subject. It's not intended to be harmful, we'll put it that way. (You might, however, experience residual tingling in the extremities, and possibly loosened bowels. I'm still working out the kinks.

For liability reasons, I'll only take volunteers third year and up (I would say fifth and up, but, well, I wouldn't want to exclude anyone my age). My name is Billy Harris, Slytherin 5th year, and if you leave your name, house, and year I will contact you within the next few days to sort out the experiment.

Ah, yes. Who would like to join me at the Three Broomsticks for the first Hogsmeade trip? If I'm feeling particularly charitable, I may pay for your drink(s).
Or if you wish to join me at Honeydukes, I'd also appreciate that.
Company is welcomed and encouraged.

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?

Congratulations, Slytherin. I was almost worried you all would fail miserably with points and we'd be losing right now.

Let's just hope you can keep this up.

Speaking of losing, the teacher match is getting closer with each passing day. I'm sure you're all terribly excited to watch your teachers fail miserably, but who knows, maybe we'll actually do quite well. Perhaps a practice session would be beneficial?

I also want to take this moment to talk about something personal to me. I know I'm late with this announcement, but I can't have my fiancé receiving all of the attentions and congratulations. As most of you should know by know, I will be marrying Murdoc Donoghue on some unforeseen date in our future. We haven't made any solid plans, because between our excitement over finally being engaged and how busy it can be to be a teacher here, we haven't had the time. We'll have a date set soon, if any of you are truly nosy enough to want to know about our private lives.

Though talking about this on the journals makes it seem a lot less private, doesn't it?

[This entry might seem a little uncharacteristically chipper coming from Murdoc of all people. Why? Because it's all pretty much fake. He's engaged to Sybille simply to prevent her from being deported and this entry has been made in the interest of seeming genuine.]

Good evening, Hogwarts. It is my great pleasure to announce that after nearly twenty years of being madly in love, both myself and the lovely Miss Matteris have gotten ourselves engaged to be married.

As of yet we haven't set a date for the wedding but we were simply too excited to hold off on announcing this to our dear friends. I'm certain you will all be invited.

While I might seem like a hypocrite, I would like to request that the students back off from Snow. He believes himself to be in control of the school, and is potentially dangerous. Potentially. Nobody but he knows what he will and will not do, and I would like for you students to err on the side of caution.

Let your professors handle him. Please.

Does anyone know about the citizenship process?

It has come to the Ministry's, and therefore my, attention that Hogwarts is in need of some... Assistance. Given the Headmaster's unfortunate inability to keep things under control at camp and even now under his very own roof, the Ministry has seen fit to appoint me High Inquisitor.

I can assure you that this is a very good thing, despite what you may be thinking and on behalf of the Ministry I would like to formally apologize for the events at camp. It is unfortunate that his carelessness would result in such an unfortunate occurrence. I can assure you that while I'm here, none of you will get so out of control.

You may have heard that it was dark magic responsible, but I can promise you that this was a lie made up only to justify a few rowdy teenagers. This will not be tolerated while I'm here, believe me. Everyone's safety is of my utmost concern, and it's up to me to prune the thorny hedges and keep everything nice and orderly.

With that said, I do not tolerate disobedience of any kind, and if I catch any kind of behaviour like what was displayed at camp, the consequences will be severe. This is the only warning I am going to give anyone. I fully expect to get along with every student here, however, so do not let my faith go unrewarded.

Finally, along with my position as High Inquisitor, I have also been appointed Herbology Professor. But considering the importance of the position, it would be best for you to refer to me as Inquisitor Snow rather than Professor.

[ooc: turn in homework over here.]

Please pardon me being a bit late with these assignments. Even though it doesn't matter what you think, as long as you do them, really.

First years, we're going to cover the most basic of spells in class, but don't assume that means the spells are unimportant. For your first assignment, there's no written work, but I want you all to perfect the hand motions we covered in class. In case you haven't gathered, gestures can be just as important as pronunciation.

Second years - 18 centimeters on "practical" spells, or ones you can use as part of your daily routine.

We're going to be covering cheering charms and other mood-altering charms in third year classes, so from third years I want 20 centimeters detailing when it is proper to use a spell to change someones mood. The more examples the better.

Fourth years, I want you to explain why being specific is essential to proper casting of the spell "Accio". If you're confused, feel free to consult Professor Strider.

With OWLs coming up, I'm sure those of you in fifth year are expecting difficult classes. Good. I want at least 30 centimeters on how charms help with other subjects you are currently taking. If you're not sure where charms come into play with your other classes, I'm concerned. For those of you truly needing a hint, Defense Against the Dark Arts is the first class that comes to mind where charms are used often.

Six and seventh years, congratulations on making the decision to stay in my class. Six years, we'll be going over spell theory as well as the history of spells. I want 10 centimeters minimum detailing the history of a spell of your choosing, which means I want to see who created, where and why was it first used, and whether or not the spells purpose has changed over the years. For seventh year, we'll be going over the theories of spell creation. Another 10 centimeter minimum, but this time on what sort of spell you, personally, would create, and why. As spell creation can be extremely dangerous, I will advise against actually trying to create one. If you die, the blame will fall on me.

I except all assignments to be turned in promptly. If you have any questions, please ask me and don't just sit around and expect for the answers to appear out of thin air, or turn in mediocre work.

[The next part is filtered to just Murdoc.]

Are you ready for our match? It's coming up rather quickly.

I understand that it might be a little difficult to handle given that it's only the first week back, but I can't be the only one appalled by the behaviour of the students, can I?

Honestly. It's gotten to the point where detention has become a joke and removing points is a formality. I actually have no idea how I'm meant to deal with the amount of misbehaviour going on when they won't listen to a word I say! A student went so far as to

[Actually. He doesn't really want to announce that.]

It's a little difficult to comprehend. Is there any advice anybody can give me, because I am at a loss here. I think perhaps it's time for a discussion amongst ourselves before things get even more out of hand.

We're much stronger as team than we are individually, in any case.

Thank fucking god that's over. I swear if I spent another minute with those nerds I would've stabbed something. You're lucky I didn't at all.

Probably would've if my knife hadn't been confiscated, but that's beside the point. How any of you can even stand being a Ravenclaw is beyond me, it's a miserable time just being in the same room as you.

Fuck all of you.

I'm not going to bother informing you that school is close. I'm certain you're all very aware of that fact, and no, I'm not assigning any last minute work. Even if I would greatly appreciate it if you arrive at school at least having read the first chapter of your books.

I do have an announcement, however.

Dumbledore has recently informed me that I have been granted the position as Slytherin Head of House. It's not unexpected, seeing as I'm the best option, but I'm pleased all the same.

[The next bit is filtered to just Vriska.]

I've got all your books and other supplies, as well as some new robes waiting at our home. I also got Nicholas a new terrarium.

And I have a few spare eyepatches if you want one.

Before school starts back up again is there anything any of you would like me to bring back as far as Muggle snacks and drinks-wise?

I usually sell them for just a little more than what I paid for them but if you'd like something specific you can send me the money now and I'll get it specifically for you for no additional charge!

Before anyone gets mad about me jacking up prices..this is usually how I earn my spending money during the school year since my parents still haven't grasped the fact that Muggle money is NOT the same as Wizard money and therefore they're..uh..shall we say, cheap? And trust me, it's a heck of a lot less than going through an actual importing place.

Now that school is nearly back in session, I have a question for the Ravenclaw and Slytherin students taking my class. I'd noticed a couple of you were going above and beyond expectations, but I'd also noticed quite a few of you failing to meet the standards set for you. As such, I am offering an hour long extension class for ALL years twice a week in which we will cover old topics more thoroughly and begin to study new things ahead of the usual regime.

These classes will, of course, benefit your grades. So if you are unhappy with your marks or looking for extra lessons, I would consider signing up here.

If it is of any interest, these lessons will also include swimming lessons and you do not need to be in my class to attend those. You will not be doing a repeat of camp, so be sure to bring actual swimming clothes if you attend. You may sign up here, and yes, we will be joining the squid in the lake. Even if you are capable of swimming, I am able to assist you with your form and speed.

[Filtered to Bruce Banner.]
Mr.Banner. Given the amount of classes you've missed, these classes will be mandatory and they will include practicals.

Alright everyone gather around, because Bro has an announcement to make for all of you bitches. But first you're probably thinking 'whoa suddenly grammar!'

Yes. That is definitely something that I'm doing now. Because I have a new job.

But don't let your heart break yet, because I'm still here. I'm not actually leaving, so calm your breasts. Okay no, I'm sorry, even though I'm trying to be all fancy, I just can't say that. So calm your tits.

Anyway, yeah. I'm transferring to a new position; I'm your new Magical Languages professor. It's the best fucking new elective Hogwarts has ever had and I'm sure you all wanna join. I have bad news though, because it's only third year and up.

Unless you beg. If you beg, I'm sure I can pull a few strings with Dumblebro. He's a rad guy, considering he actually let me have this position. But yep, that's my announcement. You can go ahead and sign up, just write your name and year and owl it over. That way I can know how many of you to expect.

Also if you have any questions, I guess you can ask. It never hurts to give a few more deets if you're that interested.

Oh and Kishitani, that means I'm a real goddamn Professor now, so if I hear you question that anymore, I'm giving you detention for real.

As much as I enjoyed getting to know my fellow professors better
It's wonderful to be home

Now summer homework! I furgot to assign any so I'll be giving everyone a quick assignment I expect on the first day of class.
Find one magical creature that lives near you and describe them in as much detail as you can. I will not be counting off for short descriptions of fast moving or elusive creatures but I do know the different children. I can see how much effort you put into your essays.

And no Nepeta, you may not use kneazels. <3


For any that are interested, I've been thinking of having a little get together. Nothing fancy, just a few drinks. I'm planning it for most the day on the 11th, starting just after noon. You can of course attend at whatever time you please.

I would ask that any that got into fights with Artollo on the trip please not attend or if you trully wish to attend, bring your manners. Understood?
