Sophie had enjoyed working on the paper since she joined in her first year, but she had never expected to be in charge of it. Now that Lennon had asked her to take over, this was the reality, and she knew she had to try her best to do it well. Normally, Sophie wouldn't really admit to caring about anything that much, but the paper was an exception. It had been something she loved doing for years, and she wished to make Lennon proud and show the rest of the club he had made the right choice in picking her. She was grateful for Noemie's assistance, even if she personally might not have picked the girl to help her out. She was one of Amber's friends, and only a few years ago that would have been enough to make Sophie dislike her. But as the girl had helped her set things up for the meeting, she realized she was a big asset.

The team had grown a lot over the years, but a few members had left now too. At the club fair, only one new student had shown interest, but Sophie hoped it would grow more in the coming years. She was glad there weren't too many new faces, because she knew she could trust the people she already knew to do their best. Sophie looked around the room to see if everything was ready. She had put up a few decorations, and there were a few snacks and drinks. Today's meeting wasn't really anything official. Of course she would be there to answer any questions anyone would have, but the actual planning of the first issue would come later. She glanced at Noemie and hesitated before smiling a little. "Thanks for helping out." She hoped other people would arrive soon, and also hoped none of them would be annoyed about her getting the editor position. She didn't feel like fighting for it, but she would if she had to.

Caro didn't look forward to a lot of things at school, but working on the Hogwarts Monthly was right at the top of the very short list. She enjoyed having an outlet for her photography, and something to work towards, where everyone at the school had to see how hard she worked, how great she was. It wasn't as show-offy as Lizzie's way of making a name for herself, but she had no doubt that everyone in the school had seen her handiwork in some way or another. She had been let down, though also not surprised, when Sophie was chosen as editor. Head Photographer was an excellent title, and Caro certainly wouldn't complain, but it was a little dismaying to see her best friend liked more than her yet again.

Caro wasn't going to let it get her down, though. She was better than that. She was happy for Sophie, end of story. So it was with a wide smile that she greeted her friend for the first meeting of the year, hurrying over to give Sophie a quick hug. "Congratulations!" She said excitedly. "Your first meeting, this is so cool!" She grinned, hoping the note of bitterness didn't come across as she took a seat next to Sophie. "I bet you're gonna do amazing."

Arvel hated meetings. He hated any activity that involved spending time with other people, and even more if he had to talk to them. But the Hogwarts Monthly meetings were even worse, because it was one of the few places in the castle Arvel couldn't avoid seeing Nixon. Just catching a glimpse of him in the corridor made Arvel's heart shatter all over again, so that he spent more time piecing it together than he did feeling whole. He'd thought about approaching the boy, striking up a conversation, asking him to the next dance, but he didn't think he could bear to inflict that kind of unnecessary pain on himself. Nixon didn't like him. If he did, he would have at least acknowledged his existence, glanced his way every now and then, maybe smiled. Arvel might as well have been invisible. Dragging his feet, he headed to the meeting place and sat down in a chair, drawing his knees up to hug them. He wished Analei had joined - maybe then the meetings would have been a little more bearable - but he was glad she hadn't made herself do something she wouldn't have enjoyed just for his sake.

Sophie felt relieved when she saw Caro join the meeting. The Slytherin was one of her best friends, and having her by her side during all this would certainly make it easier. She couldn't help smiling as the girl hurried over to her and congratulated her, even giving her a hug. "Thanks." She said softly. "I don't know if it's cool. Time will tell if everyone will hate it or not." She said with a small shrug. As Arvel arrived, Sophie gave him a small smile. "Hello, thanks for coming." She said, though she was sure he wasn't too happy to see her. She had noticed his friend hadn't signed up for the club, and had the feeling she was partly to blame for that.

Nixon was eager to get back into reporting for the hogwarts monthly, and more so now with Sophie as the new editor in chief. He hadn't spoken to Sophie much, if at all since he first became a reporter, but that didn't stop him from being curious to see which direction she wanted to take everything in. The meeting that day would surely be a chance for him to get an idea of what she expected from everyone, and Nixon made his way to the hogwarts monthly room intending to keep to himself for the most part and simply listen. After arriving, Nixon looked around the room, feeling his shoulders tense a little when he noticed Arvel, before he immediately turned to sit down in the opposite side of the room. Arvel had been the reason Nixon avoided the hogwarts monthly table during the club fair, and not wanting to cause or be part of a potentially bad situation, it was easier to continue avoiding the other boy during the meeting. After all, Nixon was there to learn what was expected of him and focus on the work he needed to do for a club he cared about, not get unwillingly dragged into someone else's problems.​

Following his try-outs for quidditch, Joshua had been quite surprised Flavio consider alternative chaser position for him. Joshua had tried out to get into something new. Do something he would normally hesitate in acting out, but he did it anyways. He wasn't sure if the captain felt bad for him or in desperate need of alternative players, Joshua didn't complain and thank the boy either way. Hogwarts monthly and now quidditch, who would've thought he'd be part of a students club and sports team? Not him, that's for sure. Joshua made his way up to the fifth floor with a navy journal clasp in his hand while he thought how so much has changed over the years for him. It was strange and wonderful feeling to be able to adventure out in one's comfort zone and push boundaries. Joshua made to the Hogwarts Monthly's first in meeting in which Sophie would be delegating the school's newspaper this year. "Hi Sophie, c-congrats," Joshua commend in her getting editor position. Joshua sat down and thought of some article ideas he'd be willing to write for their first paper this school year.
