Reform

Hufflepuff Quidditch team has been allowed to reform. When I asked Professor Umbridge this morning she took down the names of everyone on the team and told me she needed to think about it, but I went again after class and she gave us permission. I think she must have checked our records with Filch or something for good behaviour? I'm relieved of course, but I'm waiting anxiously to hear about Ravenclaw and Gryffindor. A cup between two teams seems a bit pointless. We'd only need to play one match. And that's not to mention unfair. I mean, even if they had problems with some of the players on the teams, surely they should just be looking to ban those players, not the whole house from playing. I can't help thinking how outraged Cedric would have been by all this.

It's a shame really, I had a nice weekend with Hogsmeade and everything so I'd rather be writing about that but I can't really be bothered now. We made Chris have birthday drinks and I bought some stuff and it was all good fun, basically.

I overheard Davies saying in Muggle Studies today that McGonagall and Flitwick went to talk to Dumbledore and he's gone and allowed the other teams to reform. Hopefully that'll be the end of the matter though sadly, I don't think it will.

Oh good. I hope so too. At least Quidditch is back on!

Now that I've left my catatonic state of shock and reached full rage potential.... If they don't reinstate out team soon I will... do something I don't want to write here for fear it be traced back to me...

I'm sure Professor McGonagall will sort something out.

Well hurrah for that, at least?

I wish the Christmas break would hurry up and get here. I'm getting really sick of this castle.

You're sick of the castle? Oh, don't say that Lucy! I don't want Christmas break to get here, it's my last year and it's going so quickly even with all the rubbish going on. And we don't all get to see each other over the holidays.

That's great, mate. And now that McGonagall and Dumbledore seem to have sorted things, this is one less thing to complain about, and one more thing to enjoy.

We need more things to enjoy. Everybody seems to be getting down in the dumps. I know there's good reason, but still. We don't want our last year here to be miserable.
