*Pulls out a photo of McPotions in his knickers*
"That's quite some hot stuff there."
"It's a little early for Valentine's Day isn't it?"
"Look, I think I can even make out the outline of his...."
*Cass & LD snort and burst into rounds of giggles*
"Uh oh, here he comes, quick hide the picture!"
"May I ask what is so funny that I can hear you giggling all the way from my desk?"
"Nothing Professor McPotions...I mean Professor Black." *Giggles*
"That's it, detention with me after school today. You'll be sorting flobberworms for our next class."
"I don't think I'd mind staring at him for an hour after school"
"Its just too bad he won't be in his knickers..."
Later in Detention...

"Shouldn't take us too long to get down there"
"Coast is clear...Filtch and Ms. Norris are in their room, Wartbobble is in her office"
"Wait, let me cast a spell to dampen our footsteps"
"Now lets run, Filtch is stirring"
*Softly runs through the hallways to the kitchen*
"Ok, I gotta head to the Great Hall, good luck" *grins*
*Runs to the Great Hall*
"Crap, Wartbobble is on the move. Better figure out how this Patronus message works..."
The Story Continues...
*Clears her throat*
Hogwarts, Hogwarts, Hoggy Warty Hogwarts.
Teach us something, please
Whether we be old and bald
Or young with scabby knees
Our heads could do with filling
With some interesting stuff
For now they're bare and full of air
Dead flies and bits of fluff
So teach us things worth knowing
Bring back what we've forgot
Just do your best, we'll do the rest
And learn until our brains all rot.

My poor owl finally delivered my wand to me today. I guess she got stuck in a bad storm trying to make it here to Hogwarts. Her feathers were blown every which way. But the important thing is that she made it here before we got too far into classes. It would've been horrible to have to go several more days without it.
Since I got my wand, I decided to try a few spells with it. I really wanted to see a Patronus charm, and see what form mine would take. Now, generally, first years are unable to perform this spell as it is very advanced magic. But I figured if Harry could learn to do it at such a young age, I should be able to get it. It took quite a few tries, but I found the right thought and was able to cast it. And guess what it turned out to be...
Pretty cool huh? I'm still pretty proud of myself for being able to make it take a full form. The first few times it was just some fog. Now, I must run, for I'll be late to class if I don't. I did manage to squeeze in a little knitting time last night after homework. But my classes have me completely swamped...who would know that learning magic would be so much hard work!
The feast last night was great. I met quite a few other students and my spoiler was there, but unfortunately I didn't see my spoilee. We were all drooling over our new Potions and DADA professors. I had to duck out early, so I'm afraid I missed quite a bit. When I checked back in everyone had retired. I look forward to the next big gathering.

My first owl came on Friday night with my swap partner for HSKS4. She's a first year Ravenclaw. I was so excited that I took a trip to Diagon Alley yesterday and picked up the supplies for her bag and anticipate beginning it tonight after I finish my homework.
Speaking of which, I should get going so I can get started on that homework.
