Hogwarts Wooden Bridge Reopens
The wooden bridge that leads from the clock tower courtyard to the school grounds has reopened after a year-long rebuilding effort. The new incarnation of the beloved bridge looks just as derelict and unsteady as its predecessor, but that is all just aesthetics. The bridge is back and stronger than ever. Many students may recall that the original bridge was destroyed during the Battle of Hogwarts.
Can we stop walking on eggshells now?
Dear CAW Administration,
It has been two months since a certain group of students was kidnapped on the school trip. Its been over a month since we've all been back in school, and I am tired of feeling like I have to change my habits to accommodate a few students. I mean seriously, some of them freak out every time a door opens. Or the bell rings. Or someone says their name. Really. Its getting old. This is my senior year and I'd like to enjoy what is left of it. Look, I get that being kidnapped sucks, and that someone died (RIP), but that is not my problem and I should not have to feel like I need to walk on eggshells every time one of them is around me. If they can't handle being back in the general population, maybe they should all just stay in a padded room all day. Make it sound proof too. Someone's screaming is keeping me up at night.
Someone Not Afraid of Their Own Name
