girl writing b&w

A weekend essay

I sat down yesterday and decided I wanted to write about Charlie in Romania, maybe his first year or so studying dragons.  He was writing a letter home to Ron with brotherly advice about starting Hogwarts when I realised I didn’t know whether Ron would be starting Hogwarts that year or not.  Research never hurt – much, most of the time - so I tried to work out Charlie’s age, what years he was at Hogwarts for and when the rest of the Weasleys were at Hogwarts in relation to him.

 

It was harder than I thought it would be.  I ended up writing a short essay to myself trying to explain it, with help from the Harry Potter Lexicon.  This is the result.

I was supposed to be writing an essay or two this weekend, but this was not on the list.  Go figure
