I must apologise to you all for the lateness of this address; I had hoped to send this message to you before the school year began, but these last weeks have been spent immersed in the details of my new responsibilities.

I am normally not inclined to spend idle time in reminiscence; however, this time of year always seems to find me thinking on long-ago Septembers when I, as a student, would board the Hogwarts Express bound for another year of learning. It was always an exciting time, to think of all the new things I might learn, the new skills I might acquire. Each year brought ever-changing, ever-growing possibility and hope for a bright future.

Students, now is your time. As the new generation of witches and wizards preparing to go out into the world, you hold your future in your hands. Anything is possible for you; all you need to do is dream it. You all have immense potential to grow and thrive in your areas of interest, and it is my belief that the wizarding world will see great things from you.

Seventh years, your time at Hogwarts is nearing its end. Once this final year is through, you will step into the bright sunshine of a new tomorrow. Dark times may seem heavy upon us now, but take heart - we are fighting, and it is my strong belief that before long things will be set to rights and our world will be as it should be once again. For now, continue to have hope, and learn all you can. I know you will make us all proud.

Lucius A. Malfoy
Minister for Magic

I would just like to remind everyone that Harry is the Head Boy. Not Draco Sodding Malfoy. It seems some people have their head up their arse and think it's the other way round. Make a note and stick it somewhere you'll notice, Parkinson, like your food trough or something.

It goes without saying that Draco and I expect all prefects in the forward car tomorrow immediately after the train departs. A competent prefect will have his or her charges seated quietly before 11 a.m. and make themselves available for the traditional meeting, wherein the Head Boy and Girl speak to the others and set the tone for the year to come. Trust that I have thought long and hard about the year to come, as have other Slytherin from Tracey to, rather hearteningly, Gregory.

I trust that the rest of you have had a refreshing summer. Personally, I found that spending time in our gardens and in far-flung places such as France and Fiji only made me appreciate home the more, and increased my determination to make our home, whether Hogwarts or all of Britain, a place where one may be proud to be descended from witches and wizards.

So, it looks like I'll be having the following lessons next year:

Care of Magical Creatures
Charms
Transfiguration
Defence Against the Dark Arts
Herbology

and maybe Potions, of all things.

Ron, Ginny, be sure to give me your booklists for safekeeping. Your father's taking leave on Saturday and we're off to get your things for school and it wouldn't do you well at all to lose your list beforehand! Hagrid will be meeting us at the Leaky Cauldron, and it would be NICE if your brothers would think to leave their shop for a bit to have tea with their Mum and Dad, don't you think? Of course, Mum and Dad aren't interesting and tossing Galleons at their be-dragon-skinned feet, so it wouldn't surprise me in the least if they didn't come round.

Harry, dear, you are going with us for school supplies, aren't you? Hermione, when are you planning on purchasing your things? Arthur would very much like to speak with your father again; he's been going on about aeroplanes for days!

There's only eleven days left until the new term. That's insanity.

I suppose it's daft to miss school, and I don't think I actually miss having a lesson - sorry, Hermione - but I miss Hogwarts. The smell of the stone and fireplaces, and the treacle tarts. It's hot in London, and quite smelly, but after four or so days of catching fish in the pond behind the Burrow, we had to get away for a little while. So, Ron and I are out, um, getting... ice cream. Yeah. I may have picked up a parcel for someone containing soft-blue parchment and ink. And Gobstones, although I reckon I don't really know how to play.

Okay, Ron's getting chocolates and enough sweets to weigh down by a few stones so I should, um, assist.

Why, yes, actually, I DO feel older.

Any moment now, I'll need a cane. I'm covered with wrinkles and old age spots! No, wait, that one might be a freckle. My hair has turned white as milk.

Now, why didn't one of you think to get me an ear strumpet?

Anyway, there was cake and Mum made a lovely dinner.

What are the rest of you up to?

I'm not going to try and be huge gits funny like Ron and Hermione were for my birthday. I just wanted to wish you a Happy Birthday.

I'm glad to know you.

Then again, maybe I just want some cake. I'm kidding.

Current Mood: happy happy
