    My Hero

    I would like to mention Luna Lovegood. Sure, she is mentioned a lot, but I do not think people realize just how wonderful of a character she really is. Luna has been through a lot. She lost her mother at a young age and practically has no friends except one or two people. Yet, she does not allowed this to keep her down, but keeps a positive outlook on life and events around her (such as people hiding her stuff). Luna comforts Harry and other characters when they need it most, giving them emotional support. This becomes important after Sirius Black’s death when she says that death is natural and Harry has not seen the last of his godfather. She also believes Harry immediately, regarding Voldemort’s return and other things as well. Not to mention she fought in basically every battle there was later in the books. Luna is also very attentive and smart (she is a Ravenclaw after all), she recognizes Harry under Polyjuice immediately, knows a lot of things others might not, real or imaginary they might be and is all-around just a great person. She is basically that one friend that will stay with you for the rest of your life and everybody needs someone like Luna.

    I'd Like to Thank The Academy

    The most sought out award at wizarding schools is Broken Voice award, which is unofficially given by the student body to the witch or wizard that can carry “a melodious tune that rivals merpeople on land”. It looks like a megaphone broken in two, painted in golden color. There are other honorary titles to with it as well, in form of golden sashes with black lettering. Some of these are “Best (actual) Singer”, “Even Dogs and Bats Can Hear You”, “Most Fantastic Outfit”, “Best Facial Expressions”, “Most Emotional Performance”, “Best Miming”, “Worst Song Choice”, “Worst Performance in a Back Up Role” are just some of the few.

    Hopes of a Hero

    I think that I would do something that would involve changing prejudicial existing wizarding laws, especially when it comes to treatment of those that wizards see as “lesser” like house-elves, werewolves and so on. Even Muggleborns to a degree. I would change all legislation to ensure equal treatment and opportunities for all. I mean, it is kind of difficult to be “unnoticed” when you are changing laws. However, if someone else got the credit for it while it was mostly my idea, I admit I would be furious for a short time, ranting and raving. After a while, though, I would accept it and be happy with the idea that the goal was achieved and people (and creatures) have a better life for it.

    Acts of Courage

    My pick is a bit unorthodox here, but I would like to talk about Narcissa Malfoy. Or really, just one moment in which she displayed courage and bravery that ultimately saved the wizarding world. Of course, she did not do this out of the goodness of her heart, but rather her love of her family. When Lord Voldemort used the Killing Curse on Harry Potter in the Forbidden Forest, Narcissa was elected (or volunteered, I do not recall) to check if Potter was really dead. She knew Potter was alive, but used the moment to ask what happened with Draco. After Harry confirmed that Draco was alive, she betrayed the Dark Lord by telling him that Potter is dead, which gave the defenders another chance at battle, one they ultimately won. If Narcissa had not done that, then it is very likely that Lord Voldemort and the Dark Side would have won. So yes, Narcissa was brave in a self-serving way and switched sides to keep her family together, but no one can deny that her act saved the whole war in the end.

    Anything Goes

    I think a great way (and one that would keep a long while) is to have candies dedicated to heroes. Either already existing wizarding candy could adapt some of the heroes in their lines (like chocolate frogs already do) or better yet, a completely new one could be invented. Everybody loves ice-cream or frozen yogurt! So, to incorporate heroes into it, the ice-cream could come in shape of the hero and since we are talking about wizarding version, when you start eating it, it could have different effects depending on what the person is famous for. For example, if a person invented a levitation charm, a person eating their ice-cream would be able to levitate a few inches off the ground.

    Answering the Unanswerable

    They were bald but still had to have a good hairdo for a party. What is the story behind the name of The Leaky Cauldron?

    Quality Quotes

    I always loved these... "Living a lie... it festers inside you, like poison. You have to fight for what's in your heart." -- Dorian Pavus, Dragon Age: Inquisition “Confront the dark parts of yourself, and work to banish them with illumination and forgiveness. Your willingness to wrestle with your demons will cause your angels to sing.” -- August Wilson “You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go...” -- Dr. Seuss, Oh, The Places You'll Go! “You can't live your life for other people. You've got to do what's right for you, even if it hurts some people you love.” -- Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook “You can't stay in your corner of the Forest waiting for others to come to you. You have to go to them sometimes.” -- A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh

    Credit Where Due

    Honest Holidays with Hags It was the dead of winter. The cold wind wound around the Russian countryside, bringing with it the promise of horrible things yet to come. After the night has fallen, villagers locked the door and secured the windows, keeping their children close at hand. But without fail, a child would go missing every week… Theodora O’Dimm is a magizoologist that specializes in magical beings. During her long career, she was first employed at the British Ministry of Magic, then taught Care of Magical Creatures at Hogwarts, until she became a researcher in hopes of bettering the life of those that walk the line between beasts and people. Sometimes, however, she cannot rehabilitate. This is just one of the stories where Theodora saved many people, this time from a hag that traveled Russia in search of children.

    I'm Not Sure If You're Aware But...

    Did you know I once herded an entire flamingo herd into Head Girl quarters? For this achievement, the school decided to hung a portrait of the event on the sixth floor corridor.
