Surprise for Emma

Thanks to Miranda for researching that peculiar American holiday called "Memorial Day". I'll leave the muggle studies to her for now, as I'm still working on finding my way around here at Hogwarts! I get lost more often than I care to discuss. I have found some interesting hiding places, and have gotten Filch after me more than once.

Miranda and I are planning some surprises for Emma when she gets back. How dare she go off and leave in the middle of the term like that! But if she brings us back some good presents we might let her off easy. Miranda and I are keeping the details to ourselves for now, but she did say something about apple pie. Maybe it's a "Memorial Day" thing or something.

Ravenclaw's first puzzle

Can you keep a secrit?
The headquarters for the Order of the Phoenix is at No. 12 Grimmauld Place.

I'll admit the spelling error in "secrit" threw me, but I persevered!

Ravenclaw Dorm Life

I have to say that I lucked out in the dorm assignment department. My roomies are Miranda Moonstone and Emma Dumbledore. They are nice, if not a bit strange at times. Miranda, dear thing, rambles on in her sleep about her missing (and assumed dead) parents. I suspect she realizes this during her waking hours but at nighttime she relives the terrifying tornado that lead to their presumed demise. Poor thing. As their bodies were never recovered, she imagines that they are both alive but suffering from amnesia and thereby don't know where to look for her. She has also been overcome by can't-knit-initis and has been searching for a counter spell, suspecting an as-yet-to-be-named HufflePuff as the culprit.

Emma, on the other hand, has been mum about her infamous last name. She simply will not divulge anything. This frustrates Miranda and I to no end, so of course we all suspect something juicy is up. Maybe we'll have to relieve some veratiserum from Professor Snape to get her talking...

Brief Biography homework assignment

Hello! I'm Agatha, a first-year Ravenclaw. I got to meet my cousin Lavender on the train and she's very nice. Though I'm not quite clear how she was a Ravenclaw last year and now is a Hufflepuff? Did the sorting hat make a mistake? Hmm. So much to learn here at Hogwarts! Anyway, Lavender is a distant cousin on our dads' sides of our respective families, though I'm not quite sure exactly how. Anyway, I'll proudly take her place in Ravenclaw, and just hope that the Sorting Hat got it right this time!
