    Ravenclaw prefects aren't that big of a change, but I'll let you know the final count after everyone votes. *Glares at a few people who haven't voted*.

    And Sara stole my icon! :_|

    RAVENCLAW UPDATE WEEK ONE!

    What the? How are we updating first?

    Them thingies with da words in dem

    Will knowledge of the Wizarding world become common among Muggles at some point? Why or why not? 5 points

    They say that nothing lasts forever. And so as it was for childhood and Christmas Morning, so will the events of the Wizarding world become known to Muggles. And I should add that it?s not a question of ?when?, either. It?s more a matter of ?how badly it will impact both worlds.? Because, as we all know, people fear what they don?t understand. And I would think that a society living in secret among them for as long as the wizarding world has would be enough to frighten anyone.

    Visions of the Future

    Will Voldemort be able to come back as a ghost? Why or why not? 5 points.

    Voldemort is going to be not so much with the ghost. He's torn his soul into itty bitty pieces, it's not going to be cohesive enough to stick around when he finally bites it.

    Who will be the new Headmaster/Headmistress of Hogwarts? Why? 10 points.

    Minerva McGonagall will become the new Headmistress of Hogwarts. She, out of the entire staff, has the most seniority. Also, they want a powerful Witch/Wizard in charge of the castle. McGonagall has proved to be a very skilled witch, and she is very disciplined. She already runs Gryffindor house, so I don?t see why she couldn?t just move up to Headmistress. Besides, when Dumbledore is away in the other books, she?s kinda in charge.

    Why did Fenrir Greyback just bite Lupin instead of killing him? 5 points.

    Fenrir Greyback did not kill Remus Lupin because it would have defeated Greyback's purpose for biting in the first place. When Lupin is explaing to Harry about Greyback, and when he got bitten, he tells Harry that Greyback's philospophy is to bite people when they're young, and raise them away from their families and condition them to hate wizards. Lupin also says that Greyback is hoping to have an army of werewolves one day. If Greyback were to have killed Lup

    Will knowledge of the Wizarding world become common among Muggles at some point? Why or why not? 5 points

    Much like the news found in the Quibbler, there are some truths known to the Muggle world that are simply disregarded as hogwash. As in the case of the Prime Minister, there are instances in which it is imperative to establish a liaison with Muggle society. There are, in addition, either undercover wizards or Squibs positioned in such organizations as British Military Intelligence, the American CIA and FBI and other such institutions. These are positioned in order for there to be a familiar face around if the wizards should require the aid of Muggle society. They also smooth things over in such cases as that of Alastor Moody's repeated offenses.

    It is, however, a sad fact that the existence of the wizarding world will not become unlimitedly public knowledge at any point in the foreseeable future. The wizards have disclosed their influence on society in the past, but such things as the Salem Witch Trials, medeival witchhunts and such have persuaded the Ministry of Magic that it would be prudent to remain in its current state. Those who do post-graduate work in Muggle Studies become a sort of missionary/publicist, taking the information on wizarding to those who either need to know or who will believe without prejudice.

    How exactly does one send a Howler? Does one write or record it? 5 points.

    There are three varieties of Howler's.

    The first is a standard one, available for four sickles and three knuts. It will deliver a message that all can hear from 50 meters away and then burst into flame. The premium Howler, available for 10 sickles, burns the message in the air as it plays and the flames do not disappear for three standard days. The platinum-level for 10 galleons can set a person on fire, but is not available to those who are not of age. A background check is required at time of purchase.

    All three are recorded by the Transvox charm (instructions enclosed), which allows a wizard to imprint his voice on a magical object. The premium requires a Igniscriptores charm as well and a ward against Finito Incantatem. The platinum is recorded only with the aid of a qualified wizard and the spells are not available for experimentation. A Transvox charm allows the user to transfer their message for imprintation.

    What exactly happened to Umbridge in the forest in OOTP? Please remember that these boards are PG. tongue 5 points.

    After being cornered by the centaurs, she attempted to fight them off. When that failed and she had been knocked to the ground, she tried to arrest them. The centaurs are very sensitive, but not murderers, so they chose instead to terrorize her. They bound her with Petrificus Totalus and then trampled every square centimeter next around her body. She suffered no physical damage other than when one overeager foal accidentally kicked her in the side. When the curse wore off, she was offered the opportunity to retract and leave of her own free will, but she attacked instead in a deranged frenzy and was chased out of the realm of the Centaurs. She collapsed in a nervous heap still within the boundaries of the Forest, but Grawp, in a misguided act of compassion, took her to the edge of the Forest, where she was found by Mrs. Norris in a state of shock.

    Can one be an Animagus and a werewolf at the same time? Why or Why not?

    I do not believe that one could be both, my reasoning for this is simple to become an Animagus is to chose to change into an animal, the form may already be pre determined or could be inlflueneced by what you want. If you are bitten and therefore become a werewolf yu have no choice at all, you will change at the full moon and it can only be controled by potion's. If you actually studied to become an Animagus it would in my opinion just cause you to transform into the werewolf more often.
