Title: Disconnect the Dots
Cassidy Morian - March 18, 2008 05:31 PM (GMT)
For the year 1977, life has always been open-minded, with eccentric colours and flower-power flying about as we go. Oh yes, in the 70s, attitudes are liberal and it’s more than likely that you find yourself a protest quite frequently if looking to ‘bring it down’, man or tree. Talks about peace and sit-ins (maybe not with Slytherins, heh) are as regular as your day to day protest to the point of most ridiculous ideas about what to campaign for. Actually, one Ms. Hermione Granger might made you believe that she was the brains behind the whole house-elf welfare, but in reality this had been done many years before her birth. The main goals in an era quite like this is that you look out for your fellow witch or wizard and keeping the peace. Or the earth in all it’s wonderful glory. Yeah, because we all know how that worked out. But then there are those war-obsessed sods who would love to serve poison with your tea, but who on earth cares about things like that when the punch is spiked and many strip dances on the table are to be held in stupid stupor we call drunkenness? Oh no, not we, isn’t it? Those dudes, those ‘Death Eater’ ought to all just sod off or party along, because we’re going all night and there is no place for uptight hatin’ in our vicinity!
In Hogwarts, more or less the same vibe of ‘freedom’ is being screamed through the corridors by obnoxious students who have less goals in life that a puddle of mud. Did you see that stampede run along? We call those fangirls and our latest victim is one Sirius Black. While poor Sirius has mastered the game ‘hide and seek’ quite well in these past months, Peter Pettigrew won’t stop at selling you the boy’s saliva for further processing. Lily Evans, peace keeper and spokes person for demons, er, prefects has taken it on herself (and forced it onto the other prefects) to be the one to at least try and contain her fellow students before it turns into a honest hell. The student body couldn’t care less about that, really, after all, with all to enjoy around the school, who cares about some Dark Lord plotting to take their freedom from them? Nah, that’s just something to worry about later. Or not. We’re teenagers, for Merlin’s sake, we want to see drama, lots of girl on girl action and major cheek slapping going on, because hey, it’s always more funnier to be as innocent a bystander you can, right? No, jeering on the slapped to slap back doesn’t count. As for drugs, well, just look at everyone racing about, being as spaced-out as they are and put two and two together. Oh, oh, sure you don’t think we use muggle tripe? We can do magic, sure you can’t underestimate us when it comes to entertainment, music, alcohol or the forbidden elements of life.
The Professors, oh they’re a whole different kind of people. Though not as evil as you would expect them to be (maybe when giving homework) they’re mostly as uptight as anyone else. Mainly Lily Evans. But let’s not let her hear that, okay? Albus Dumbledore is as calm and composed as ever and if he feared or worried their upcoming faith (except for maybe an overdose or two, but hey!) it certainly doesn’t show when he welcomes yet another batch of turbulent students to his already hyper-active ones. Soon they will be turned just like our sixth and seventh years were once pure of soul, and perhaps also mind, and the only thing these buggers need to heed is the Forbidden Forest and the caretaker’s sadistic streak. Rumour goes he has all kinds of devices to make you, er, crack. Classes come and go as well as exams, and stress, panic and absolute horror on the students part are not so very uncommon as you’d like – that is, for the unprepared. The main worries in this day’s life is how you can tactically work your way around that large stack of papers and how you wish your superior would just up and die for all you care, war is honestly the last things on their mind. Any witch or wizard in this time and day lives life in as blissful ignorance as anyone and that can turn out quite well, right?
