Giggle. "I think I'll probably have to be at least fourth year before I can teach History, though."

Sniff. "If you feel you must."

"I don't want to do a subpar job, but I might jump ahead though if Professor Lockhart's bad enough."

Permalink

Heee.

(It sounds like class won't start until the next Monday, again - they have classes all five weekdays. Captain Hayes stops by to let them know Quidditch restarts next Saturday.)

Permalink

They'll be there.

Permalink

Yeah.

She's missed Quidditch.

Permalink

It's really not the same with two (or even three).

Permalink

Yeah! And racing and exploring are all a different kind of fun than a full game.

Permalink

It's nice to be back at school.

Permalink

Yeah.

Anathema settles back in just fine - and it does in fact seem like everyone's pretty much forgotten about last year's misadventure by now. They have plenty of time before classes to rediscover all their favorite hang out locations, see how Scarlet's doing, skim through the textbooks... (The History textbooks in fact don't seem to talk about history in depth a lot.)

They don't have History class until Wednesday, this time, and there's disconcerting grumbles before then among some of the older students - especially the Ravenclaws doing a History NEWT - about Professor Lockhart's ability to stay on topic. ("Why are our History professors always either evil or incompetent?" one seventh year grouches a bit too loudly.)

That's an encouraging sign.

Permalink

Yeah...

Anathema is honestly not sure what she'd rather have between 'incompetent' and 'evil.'

Permalink

'Incompetent' at least they can do outside reading to make up for.

Permalink

True. Though Anathema'd rather be evil, herself.

Permalink

Given a choice between the two, sure.

Permalink

Hopefully it'll never come up.

Permalink

Hard to imagine circumstances in which it would, really.

Permalink

There might be a super evil ritual that increases your competence, you never know.

Permalink

One that's very forgiving about how exactly it gets done?

Permalink

That might be necessary if something horrible makes her lose her competence first, yeah.

Permalink

Ellie will keep an eye out for something like that.

Permalink

That's why she's the best.

Permalink

Lean.

They'll be ready for Lockhart. Even if he's really dumb.
