Dayo waves back, and takes a seat at a table where some people are ignoring her.

Permalink

Hopefully Dayo knows what she's doing.

Permalink

She probably does. She starts talking to a couple of girls.

Permalink

Dorea will likewise resume intrahouse socialization.

Soon enough they're done eating and the Gryffindors go to class.

"I heard the teacher is a ghost," Neville whispers.

Permalink

"I think he's the only ghost Professor...They say he just one day walked out of his office and never noticed he'd left his body behind."

Permalink

"That seems an odd thing to miss."

Permalink

They need to ask the paintings for directions twice but eventually arrive at the auditorium-like classroom whose walls are covered by books.

Permalink

After they've settled in the whole class gasps as a short, hunchbacked, old ghost walks through the wall and takes a seat.

Permalink

So spooky.

Professor Binns starts his lesson. ...he seems to be an experiment designed to make even the coolest magical revolutions sound mind-numbingly dull.

Permalink

...Wow.

Well, okay, if she ignores him and just reads about it in the textbook, will he notice?

Permalink

Nope. He seems oblivious to the classroom, actually.

Permalink

Magic school isn't perfect, it seems.

Permalink

Thus proceeds their first class, and most other kids are drooping or asleep by the time it ends. Homework is five inches on whatever boring topic they covered today, which elicits a collective groan.

Permalink

Five inches? Weird way to measure, but okay. Well, if no one else was ignoring him and reading the textbook she supposes she has an advantage.

Permalink

Probably.

Then break!

Permalink

Hmm.

How discreetly can she investigate the forbidden corridor?

Permalink

Depends on who she tells about it. If it's "no one" then pretty discreetly.

Permalink

Yeah she just wanted to be sure no one was following her or anything.

Permalink

No one's following her!

But when she gets there she runs into someone who looks like he hasn't had a happy day in his life. "And what are you doing here?"

Permalink

 

Well.

"I'm sorry, sir," she says meekly. "I got lost, I was looking for the way back to the common room..."

Permalink

"Lost, I'm sure!" he says, limping towards her. "You're gonna be coming with me."
