    Second Years Lesson 6

    One more class. One more class and then she would be done for the semester. (Well, there were still exams to get through, but Celia was not worried about those). She was looking forward to three long months away from this wretched place. These days, Celia wasn't quite sure where "home" was. The...

    Second Years: Lesson Six

    Celia was so ready for this year to be over. And it seemed Professor Crabapple felt the same way. He was once again slumped across his desk, and she wondered how the man had lasted an entire year without getting fired. Did Professor Alicastell know he was just sleeping through all of his...

    DADA Second Years, Lesson Six

    Though DADA had been her favorite subject this semester, Celia was glad to hear that today would be a free period. She was kind of over her classes at this point. Or, to be more accurate, she was over Hogwarts. The past semester hadn't been great, her disqualification from the dueling tournament...

    Second Years Lesson 5

    Once again, Celia was utterly unsurprised to hear the topic of today's lecture. The asteroid belts were the only thing left to cover in the solar system, and it made sense that they would be learning about them today. Still, she couldn't help but wish they could do some stargazing (or...

    DADA Second Years, Lesson Five

    The last thing Celia wanted to do was go back to the Duelling Chamber. The memory of getting disqualified from the tournament still stung, and she'd avoided the place ever since. Unfortunately, Professor Drage had other ideas, and Celia forced herself to make her way to the chamber where...

    Second Years: Lesson Five

    After the last lesson, Celia was pretty sure her History of Magic lectures had hit rock bottom. There was no way things could get worse. But of course, she was proven wrong again. This time, Professor Crabapple was starting the lesson slumped across his desk. Celia exchanged looks with one of...

    Closed Head Start

    It quickly became clear that Indi had been joking, and Celia felt a bit stupid for not realizing it. She was normally a lot better at reading people. But those feelings disappeared when Indi mentioned Natalia. It turned out she hadn't just imagined the tension between the two chasers; there...

    Closed Pyrrhic Defeat

    Celia had known that there was likely nothing Sydney could do, but that didn't stop her heart from sinking as the older girl confirmed that it really was over. She would be ending the tournament 0-1, disqualified, knocked out of the first round by Louis Alcott. Why did Professor Alicastell even...

    Closed Words Can Be Strong, Like the Beating Drum

    "You're right," Celia said with a dramatic sigh, "Journalism is about telling the truth and reporting on important issues, and that's why we should all be spending our time writing up donut recipes," she said with a pointed look. "I'm sure that's exactly what all our readers are asking for." Why...

    I Make My Own Fate

    Celia accepted the cup with a polite thank you and considered this new information about conjuring spells. "So those snakes that we conjured... Does that mean we actually summoned them from somewhere else?" It was a bit less dramatic than her original assumption that she had essentially created...

    Y39 S2 | Brotherhood and Heta Omega Bonfire Party

    Out of all of Celia's extracurriculars, Heta Omega had been the biggest letdown. Her big sisters had barely talked to her, and there hadn't been nearly as many parties as she thought there would be. Sororities were supposed to lead to lifelong friendships, and she definitely hadn't acquired any...

    Open The Stands

    As Ilvermorny's starting seeker took a third hit and got rushed off to the hospital wing, Celia wondered if maybe his elimination was for the best. He was clearly incompetent. Now someone who could actually fly would get to play. But then, much to her surprise, Ilvermorny started substituting in...

    Open The Stands

    Celia was ready to watch the Hufflepuff team get murdered. Of course, she would have much rather had the chance to play in the international game, but since a certain teammate had screwed that up, she'd settle for the next best thing — watching Ilvermorny's beaters take out the Hufflepuffs one...

    Electives Fair Y39

    Celia had known what electives she would be taking during her third year for a while now. Ever since it had sunk in that she would be expected to finish out her schooling at Hogwarts, she'd mapped out her courses for all seven years, trying to figure out which path would set her up for the most...

    Second Years Lesson 4

    Ever since getting disqualified from the dueling tournament, Celia had been in a miserable mood. Somehow she didn't think this was the response Professor Harrington was looking for with her opening question, so she kept quiet. Plus, she didn't want to remind everyone that she'd failed. She'd...

    DADA Second Years, Lesson Four

    Celia would never understand why some people volunteered for these jinx demonstrations. Who cared about house points or extra credit? Did they not have even a shred of dignity? Somehow, more people volunteered this week than last. Hopefully her grades never dropped so low that she became...

    Second Years: Lesson Four

    Celia had learned a long time ago that the curriculum at Hogwarts was a joke. They learned the most basic material, and the teachers punished anyone who dared to work ahead. There weren't even any advanced classes for god's sake. She knew all this, and yet her mouth nearly fell open when...

    Closed Head Start

    For a second, Celia wondered if Indi was somehow upset with her. Aside from sending the occasional bludger Indi's way during practice, Celia didn't think she'd done anything to bother the older girl. (And if Indi was upset about the bludgers, she needed to get better at dodging.) But then Indi...

    Open We Say Our Lines, We Do the Time

    Despite her best efforts, Celia couldn't even summon a few sparks, which was especially frustrating since wands produced sparks all the time. She repeated the incantation, only looking up when a boy approached her to say something about house elves. "I—" but then she stopped when a second voice...

    I Make My Own Fate

    Celia had to resist the urge to roll her eyes. It wasn't that she didn't believe Professor Corrins; it just sounded like something her first grade teacher would say. She idly wondered how wizards managed to find anything if they were forced to use such inefficient methods of research. It wasn't...
