Following a rather quiet summer, snakes were ripe for some action! Blaming the Blood-Sucking Bugbear, Slytherins took the Hogwarts Express for a spin at the start of term, designing tickets for the exclusive snake-only trip and sending postcards to friends and family. There was a moment of panic when the train Apparated to different locations on its own. We did eventually make it back to the school, but not before showing our Slytherin pride by spray painting graffiti in vibrant green and silver, of course.
All the students have settled and are collecting points the same way that squirrels hoard acorns. Basil is howling with joy (as well as a Basilisk can howl, anyway) because there are now people and newbies around. Brabas is delighted that Basil now has others to torment. Grinning gourds are all over the Dungeons as a treat for our annual Slyth-o-ween celebration. Make sure you can tell a phantom from a trick and don't get spooked!
