“It was a dull afternoon in the common room,” as George
tells it, “Fred and I were in dire need of entertainment.”
“Then Hermione came in,” adds Fred, “Prattling on and on to poor Neville
about some useless facts she’d read about in Hogwarts, A
History
; and the idea just came to me.”
“It was Brilliant!”

After strolling down to the library and removing one of the nicer copies
of Hogwarts, A History from the shelves; Fred and
George holed up in a corner out of Madam Pince’s sight and began
magically changing many of the entries. The result turned out to be
quite entertaining indeed.

Your task this month is to share with all of us one of the historical
passages you think they changed best. So scurry on up to the Hogwarts
library and copy down a few choice paragraphs. Keep your entry to 750
words or less though, for if you try to copy down more Madam Pince may
just catch you.

General Rules:

  • Anyone 13 years of age and
    over may enter the contest, including staff members who are not involved
    in the judging process.
  • One entry per person.
  • All
    submissions must be the original work of the contestant. Any entries
    found to contain the work of another author will be disqualified.

    decisions by the judges are final.
