Did you know?

First names were most often used by childhood or school friends. If the friendship was made after school age, first names would only really be used by women. Men were far more likely to refer to their friends by their surnames, a mark of familiarity. — Documentation

WANTED:

Carson Bixby for Sloane Bixby. You can take the middle-aged man out of quidd—oh, apparently you can't.
Separating was also not a great idea, though they weren't doing great at staying together anyway. If she were to volunteer to be the human sacrifice.. well... Hogsmeade had plenty of debutantes anyway...

Follow-Ups On Our Fog Follower Predictions
Mr. Barnabas Skeeter: Was once more a magnet for disaster! Mr. Skeeter, after being overtaken by boils, apparently had trouble with his prosthetic limb. While he did not perish, he was unable to continue adventuring, as a previous disaster prevented this one from inevitably killing him.

Mr. Tybalt Kirke: Was less lucky than we anticipated. While he was technically successful, as he was not turned back before the end of the expedition, he was also turned into a cat. Unfortunate.

Mr. Edric Umbridge: Reportedly the Head Auror's group was first set on fire by flaming rain, then split up, resulting in an injury to Mr. Langley. Once they entered the Irvingly casino, the group did not encounter disaster beyond Mr. Thomas Tilcott turning into a cat. They also were unsuccessful. Was it worth leaving the Ministry?

Mr. Somersby Fudge: Found himself in the same grouping as Mr. Umbridge. Mr. Fudge survived unscathed and, while the disasters which befell their group do not speak well to the Head Auror and the more aged adults among them, (including Mr. Fletcher Langley and Mr. Conall Mackay,) they did not result in the seventh year's death. Congratulations, Mr. Fudge!

The Twins Lécuyer: Miss Odette Lécuyer made it to the end of the expedition, but had the misfortune to be left alone with men at the end, so who knows what happened to her while she had simply the company of Mr. Kenton Yaxley, Mr. Andrew Lyness, and Mr. Clinton Podmore. (Mr. Podmore in particular is a notorious flirt!) Miss Mireille Lécuyer was punted by a water buffalo. Neither of them came off very well, evidently.

Mr. Kentigern MacFusty: Survived, but was left with burn marks from an apparent corpse. Again we say: unfortunate.

Miss Cupcake Whitledge: Apparently Miss Whitledge caught malaria, and we are not surprised.

Madam Violet Wiltingham: Madam Wiltingham never made it into Irvingly, as she caught ill on the journey.

Miss Maeve Connolly: Survived and thrived, having escaped the same group as Mr. MacFusty without any physical damage.

Where Will The Sorting Hat Place My Child?
With the next school year starting in less than a month, parents may find themselves wondering with increasing frequency what house their eleven year old child will be sorted into. We've prepared a quiz to give parents an idea of what to expect from that first letter home in September.

1. Which house did you belong to?
a. Gryffindor
b. Hufflepuff
c. Ravenclaw
d. Slytherin

2. Which house did the child's father belong to?
a. Gryffindor
b. Hufflepuff
c. Ravenclaw
d. Slytherin

3. If your child has older siblings, which house(s) were they sorted in to?
a. Gryffindor
b. Hufflepuff
c. Ravenclaw
d. Slytherin

4. Which best describes your child?
a. Bold, headstrong, adventurous.
b. Diligent, sweet, generous.
c. Wise beyond their years, astute, inquisitive.
d. Canny, determined, resourceful.

5. If your child has a preference, where would they choose to be?
a. Gryffindor
b. Hufflepuff
c. Ravenclaw
d. Slytherin

6. How does your child behave when reprimanded?
a. With obstinance, begrudging their own obedience.
b. Humbly, their apologies are sincere and heartfelt.
c. Regretfully, they knew better and are ashamed.
d. Your child is all apologies but a part of you doubts their contrition.

7. Would you trust your child with great responsibility?
a. No.
b. Yes.
c. Yes.
d. No.

Mostly A's: Your child will most likely end up in the house of the bold and brave lion. Prepare yourself, parenting a willful, young Gryffindor is difficult and at times distressing.
Mostly B's: Hufflepuff prizes a good work ethic and kindness, while they may not be glory or wit, these are still attributes to be proud of.
Mostly C's: Ravenclaw. If your child's remarkable intellect didn't bring you to this conclusion prior to the quiz, he or she likely did not inherit it from you.
Mostly D's: Your child's lofty ambitions will see them in Slytherin. While many like to present the house of the snake as a hotbed for dark magic, it is worth remembering that Merlin himself was a Slytherin.

Mr. Hamish Darrow, the Head of Hufflepuff


Mr. Eugene Scamander, beast division employee


Our Heroes!
At long last, the source of the fog has been discovered and its reign has ended. With life seemingly having gone mostly back to normal, the credit for the salvation of Hogsmeade and Irvingly falls to five individuals: Mister Hamish Darrow, Miss Constance Sykes, Mrs Carmelina Cramming, Eugene Scamander. and Mister Charlie Williams (whom we were unable to obtain a photo of). This With Weekly reporter decided to do a little digging so that you, our readers, could get to know the heroes of the moment a little bit better.


Mister Hamish Darrow
One of the eldest of the expedition adventurers and longtime History of Magic professor at Hogwarts as well as the Head of Hufflepuff, we have no doubt that Mister Darrow had a lot of knowledge and expertise that benefited his team. Appointed Deputy Head of House and a widower, Mister Darrow would make an ideal husband for an older spinster. Though there are whispers that he might have a love connection with the lovely Miss Sykes!

Miss Constance Sykes
A beautiful muggleborn witch, Miss Sykes has served as Slytherin matron since 1884. She is said to be quite the amateur duelist as well as being well liked among the students she provides guidance to. She has been rumored to be quite close to a fellow Hogwarts staff member and it is now believed that said staff member is none other than Hamish Darrow! Having never been married despite her obvious beauty and talents, this would be quite the opportunity for the aging spinster.

Mrs Carmelina Cramming
Mrs Cramming is widely known among academic circles, having published a book entitled Ancient Runes, Ancient Tombs. Reports say that she is set to be the Ancient Runes professor in the upcoming school year. Once married, her husband died in Egypt. The couple never had children nor did they ever really settle down. At thirty three years old, it is not too late for Mrs Cramming to start a family but this is not something that she seems to show interest in.

Mister Eugene Scamander
A beast division employee at the Ministry, Mister Scamander is a very respectable young man. While on the young side of things, Mister Scamander is of a decent marrying age for a young debutante. He was in Hufflepuff and is reported as being quite kind and amiable. Eugene's father once ran for Minister and only withdrew due to a health issue. No doubt Mister Scamander will be up for a promotion in the next couple years and could make quite the valuable husband to the young lady that plays her cards right!

Mister Charlie Williams
Not much is known about Charlie Williams and Witch Weekly was not able to dig up much about him. What is known is that he came to England in 1886 after being raised in Australia. It is rather curious that not much else was able to be found out about him. Is he just an isolated hermit that felt the need to help or is he hiding something?

Discover Your August Horoscope!
Capricorn: You have a vampire in your life — not literally, but emotionally. Someone in your friend circle is sucking you dry, and you need to cut ties before it's too late.
Aquarius: Don't apologize for your emotions. If your loved ones can't handle a few tears or a tantrum, they aren't the people you want to surround yourself with, anyway.
Pisces: It may seem like the world is aligned against you this month, but keep your head up and hope for better stars in September. For August, it may be all you can do to keep surviving.
Aries: Obstacles that have been secretly holding you back will become obvious this month; recognize them and do what you can to remove them, so you can flourish.
Taurus: The stars are aligned for a big romantic move this week — courting girls can expect a proposal, eligible ladies an offer of courtship, and married women a fantastic surprise gift.
Gemini: Your gallivanting ways are unsustainable; start to think about the future and make realistic goals to be where you want to be three to five years down the line, instead of just having fun.
Cancer: Be wary of issuing ultimatums this month; you are unlikely to get the answer you are hoping for, and you may end up driving away someone important to you.
Leo: Consider what your appearance says about yourself. Is it time to send a new message with a new hairstyle or a little shopping spree to spruce up your wardrobe?
Virgo: You've had your nose to the grindstone for far too long. Lighten up! Take a break this month and enjoy the society of friends and family, before you drive them away with pedantry.
Libra: You may think you have a good grasp of your strengths and weaknesses, but don't let that deter you from trying new things; you may just discover an unexpected talent.
Scorpio: Good things come to those who wait. You have been striving for your dream, but sometimes all of your efforts are only getting in your way. Sit back and see what the universe can do for you instead.
Saggitarius: Pay attention to your dreams this month; this is a good time for divination, and even if you generally lack the talent you may find certain recurring themes prove to be good indicators of what's to come!
