Defense Against The Dark Arts


Need we say more? Those of you who have been around Hogwarts for a while know that the Defense Against the Dark Arts posts can never keep an instructor for more than a year. Well, every term we hire a new instructor. Our dear Wisty has . . . eh hem, shall we say, been given the task of orienting the new DADA instructors on their duties at the school. For summer we will do something a little different. Three instructors have applied for the job of Summer Camp DADA and I would like to have all the campers involved in deciding who our summer DADA will be.

Our first candidate is Caedmon McGooken. He has taught DADA at various other magic schools, but would come to us with only one year worth of experience. He, however, shows immense promise because of his uncharacteristic to teach his students dark arts in very interesting, and sometimes unethical ways.

Gawain Rayner is a seasoned DADA instructor. Within the span of an hour's time Professor Rayner can impress upon the minds of all the students a desire to learn DADA even enough to eventually become Auror.

Kembell Warick is last, but certainly not least. Having fought with the Order of the Phoenix against Voldermort's initial attacks, Professor Warick has a keen knowledge of the Dark Arts that will aid any and every student to excel in this class.



Impromptu Trivia: Who among you knows WHY the DADA post can not be occupied for more than a year?

Because Voldemort cursed the position when Dumbledore refused to give it to him

Due to a possible curse placed by Tom Riddle after refusing the post twice.

Contrary to popular opinion, it had nothing to do with me!!

Okay, laughing VERY hard @ Wisty's comment, and agreeing 125% with Hermie!

Like Dragonsinger said, when Tom Riddle was refused a position, he jinxed the job so no one could stay for more than a year.

LOL Wisty that's great. But I think Jen C & Dragonsinger are right on. That's our problem w/DADA that darn curse from You-Know-Who.

Whew....I'm off the hook! Now, on to planning the best way to orient our new DADA instructors on their duties. I know there are some wonderful dark caves and cool pools they may want to explore. Ah, yes....new dreamy instructors.

Voldemort, as Tom Riddle, wanted the job very badly, and, as Dumbledore would not give it to him, he cursed the position until he fulfilled it.

My dreamy choice is losing *sniff* But, I guess he's coming second to a handsome fellow. I'm going to keep this open until Wednesday mid-day.

Cousin Andromeda told me that it is all Wisty's fault. :)

Emma Wigworthy on June 17, 2009 at 2:42 AM said...

What a terrible shame that as the Professor is at school and we are at camp our dear Wisty will be unable to fulfil her usual duties!

Does anybody have a kind relative who is able to fillin?
