Back to Hogwarts Part 2

INTRO

MC GONAGALL

{LAST_NAME}, just the person I wanted to see.",


I'm afraid the Calamity is still causing trouble. Valuable artefacts have been taken from Hogwarts School, including the Sorting Hat. Without that hat, our first-years cannot be sorted into their houses.


Can I count on you provide assistance once again?


BRILLIANT SORTING HAT

MC GONAGALL

The Sorting Hat has been sorting first-year students into their houses for hundreds of years -- and this was the first time we've ever had to consider what we'd do if it went missing.


HOGSMEADE SIGN

MC GONAGALL

Hogsmeade: home of the Three Broomsticks, where students and faculty alike go to enjoy the occasional break from the castle.


HOGWARTS BOAT

MC GONAGALL

Those boats provide first-year students their first glimpse of the castle as they cross the Black Lake. It is, by all accounts, an impressive sight.


CARRIAGE

MC GONAGALL

I've always been one for tradition, but I must say, I prefer the Hogwarts Carriages over the boats that the first-years ride to the castle.


WINGEAD BOAR STATUE

MC GONAGALL

Professor Flitwick and I have a long-standing disagreement about whether or not the Winged Boar Statues participated in the Battle of Hogwarts. I didn't enchant them specifically, but I could have sworn I saw one of them dive-bombing a cluster of Death Eaters.


THESTRAL

MC GONAGALL

For years after the Battle of Hogwarts, virtually all of our students could see the Thestrals. It was a constant reminder of the cost of that horrible fight. I just hope that the Calamity doesn't eventually condemn another generation of students to the same fate.


END OF COLLECTING

MC GONAGALL

Thanks to your efforts, Hogwarts has suffered no lasting effects from this most recent outburst of the Calamity -- unless you count my students' new favourite excuse, 'the Calamity stole my homework!'


END

MC GONAGALL

Allow me to express my utmost gratitude for your assistance, {LAST_NAME}.


I shall send an owl to Minister Granger informing her of the admirable service you have provided.
