Author's Note: Hey, sorry about the long wait! Anyway, here's the next installment!

"Weasley, Frederick!"


This hall is so big, I bet it'd make a really terrific place for a fireworks display! Or maybe—I know! Food fight on brooms—like Quidditch, but tastier. I can't believe we're finally at Hogwarts—it's a fitting spot for our genius!

'Our genius? Ah, yes, the brother. Well. You certainly are confident. Where to put you?'
