Poppy was nervous for her first time really addressing the Monthly staff while having real authority. Nell had carried the majority of the responsibility last year so it felt strange knowing that they would be looking to her for answers now. And not just that, she was supposed to have them. She chewed on her bottom lip as she set out some pastries in the middle of their meeting table. She wanting to make this meeting fun and get off on the right foot with the new members and with the old ones. Eventually she took a seat at the head of the table and waited for people to arrive, her leg constantly bouncing as she continued to worry.

Thankfully only a moment later people started to arrive. Poppy nearly jumped out of her chair to greet them and the chair scrapped awkwardly against the ground. "Welcome everyone!" she said brightly. "Welcome to the first Monthly meeting of the year and I'm so happy that you've all decided to come together to make this paper." she said and made a point to look encouragingly at the new students who joined the paper this year. "Before we get started on figuring out who's writing what I thought we could do something a bit more fun to break the ice a bit." she said with a grin. "I'm not sure if wizards normally have this game..." Poppy began but trailed off when she realized some people might not know how mad libs worked. "Well it's rather simple. We're going to pass around the story and each person can fill in a missing word and at the end we'll have...some form of a story." she said with a laugh, and handed it off to someone next to her.

Adorah couldn't believe she was finishing up her final year at the paper. She had only joined a few years back, and she wanted to make sure all her contributions were spot on. As she entered the space, the Ravenclaw gave a wave to Poppy as she took a seat, pulling out her planner so she could mark down any deadlines or important dates. When the meeting started, Poppy pulled out a familiar muggle game. While Adorah knew that it was supposed to be filled with silly words, she figured starting it out with something like "hard" would make it funnier as things got wild. She quickly passed it onto the next person.

Elara loved being on the paper, along with every other club she was a part of. Taking a seat, she listened intently to their new leader, admiring how pretty her hair was. Quickly becoming excited with their activity, she waited until the Head Girl passed the paper to her - what an honor - and filled in a color. It wasn't supposed to make sense, right?

River was excited to get back to writing. Over the break she had been working on some of her own writing projects, but it was nice to be a researcher once more, a true writer. The young Slytherin was not certain what she wanted to write for this issue, but she wanted to write something. Maybe their meeting would give her a little help deciding that. The bright pink haired girl entered the meeting area, seeing some snacks laid out on the meeting table and a few familiar faces around. River smiled brightly at them all, saying hello to the few who had arrived. She took an empty seat waiting for the others to arrive.

When everyone had arrived, River looked towards Poppy to see what they were planning to do. River wondered if it was difficult being in charge of the whole paper. Maybe some day. Maybe some paper She thought with a soft smile as she listened to the new editor discuss what they were doing today. It appeared to be some sort of mad libs, something River had not participated in for years. She used to do these silly stories in her primary school with her friends in the muggle world. It was a great way to break the ice.

River took the copy of the mad libs from the student sitting next to her. River did not bother to read the story. That felt like cheating almost. Instead she looked at the next spot that had to be filled. It had to be a verb with an 'ing' ending. Now that's easy. Swimming! River thought missing one of her other favourite hobbies. She took her pen (the one she had gotten from her Muggle Studies class) and filled in the blank spot, before passing it to the next student.

Charlie hurried down to the first meeting of the Monthly, excited to be working under Poppy. He smiled at the others as he took his seat. He looked around, feeling more at home as he sat down with the others. He listened as Poppy talked to them, watching the paper as it was passed around. He picked it up when it was his turn, considering it a moment. A place, huh? He considered it a brief moment before scribbling something down and passing it over.

Celia hadn't had high expectations for the Monthly, not after learning that they let just anyone sign up. Really, it fit with her overall impression of Hogwarts. The school had abysmally low standards, and she still hadn't figured out if Hogwarts NZ really was that prestigious or if her parents had been lying to her. So Celia wasn't sure why she was surprised when she heard that the day's ice breaker activity would be a mad-libs game. She was of course familiar with the concept. She'd done a couple — in kindergarten. The activity had always struck her as a waste of time and not even a particularly fun waste of time. Did anyone truly find the resulting paragraphs of nonsense to be amusing?

The other members of the Monthly didn't seem to take issue with the activity, and she rolled her eyes at the obvious enthusiasm some displayed. Celia hardly looked up when the paper made its way to her, and she scanned the sentence before writing down desolate. She thought it a pretty apt word to describe her mood right now. Celia quickly pushed the story over to the next person.

Rhys did like being a part of the monthly, it gave him a chance to get even better with his writing. Which he was going to need if he wanted to be a top journalist someday just like his dad. Though the Quidditch article had still eluded him (ten guesses who had stolen that from him again). But he was trying not to be too bitter about it (and failing), settling down to listen to what the new editor had to say. The activity itself actually sounded pretty stupid and he didn't really think it was going to help him be a better writer. And when the paper found its way in front of him and he looked at what the people before he had written down, the second year rolled his eyes, "Come on, you could have least made it make sense." He was convinced he was surrounded by idiots, grumbling as he picked up a pencil and scribbled in the next bit of the story before passing it off for the next person. If they wanted to make this a ridiculous and nonsensical story, then he could do that.

Sydney was curious to see how Poppy handle running the HM this year, especially considering it would be her own last year on the paper. Sydney had liked Nell as a person and as an editor, and while she had doubts sometimes about how much spine Poppy had, Sydney did appreciate that Poppy didn't mind asking some of the harder questions when challenged.

She filed into the club room, lurking near the back as the room filled and Poppy got up to address them for the first time. Being a senior member of the club, Sydney felt less need to show much deference to Poppy, but she still stopped to listen as Poppy went over the activity they'd be working on. When it was her turn to take the parchment, Sydney snorted at some of the word choices, shaking her head as she wet her quill to scribbling in her own before passing it on. "So are you going to use our masterpiece of journalism in anything? Your editor's note perhaps?" She asked Poppy. @Poppy Perkins

Giulia still had no idea what she was doing here. Joining the newspaper had seemed like a good way to help with her English, but here she was surrounded by people writing in their first language, and it was one she struggled with all the time. She listened as the club leader introduced the day's activity, cringing even more as she realised she would have to participate. She shrunk further and further in her seat as the paper went around the room, until her dreaded turn came. Taking the paper, Giulia stared at it far longer than anyone else had, trying to parse what she was supposed to write. Finally, she just scribbled in something she was sure was wrong, and handed it on quickly before she could feel worse.
