The smell of oranges on this week’s Owl Post is almost overwhelming… Probably worth a read somewhere warm
It should be noted that any opinions voiced within this article our not echoed by The Owl Post nor any of it’s writers.
Goblins are some nasty little creatures, but even so we happen to work with them, and they happen to control everything there is to our economy. Now saying that, ask yourself this. Where would we get our money if it was not for the little fellows at Gringotts?
Let’s dig into history! Goblins have never favoured us, and of course a Goblin Rebellion against wizards and witches isn’t something you can joke about, of course it would be fatal to our entire wizarding world if one would so happened again. The tension still lies and we hate goblins as much as they hate us, yet there is a line we choose to work together.
Now you ask me, if goblins are these disgusting little pests who hate wizards and witches, then how are we working together? Who represents them to the wizards and witches? The chief goblin? Oh no, I don’t think so. Try again… Ah, yes! I can let you in on a little secret…It’s not much of a secret at all, but here we go.
Welcome to the Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures, however, walk further. Meet at the Being Division, then go along and find yourself the Goblin Liaison Office.
We, the Goblin Liaisons, are highly respected. If it was not for us creating civil agreements with the goblins, then we’d be at war like we were back in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.
Of course the Wizards’ Council and the Code of Wand Law established in 1631 never helped. Clause three; ‘No non-human creature is permitted to carry or use a wand’. Though you would find it humorous to find out goblins have their own branch of magic which does not require the use of a wand. The Brotherhood of Goblins never agreed with the statement, but indeed they took some drastic measures to see that their word was heard.
However a word from a goblin is not ordinary. Indeed, it is true that goblins speak they own language. Gobbledegook is a extremely harsh language, and not any easy one. Of course if you want to work with Goblins, then you need to be able to speak and act like one. However you have to remove the vicious nature to wizards and wizards as we don’t want the entire Goblin Liaison office to start an entire new rebellion with our own against us. The thought of it is barmy!
I will always remind you, that crossing a goblin will be the last mistake you make. Goblins are not to be trusted even when closely working with them. These creatures are extremely smart, their intelligence levels beyond many of our kind.
Perhaps one day we will all be saying; ‘’Welcome to Gobwarts!’’. One could only imagine what would happen if the school was overruled by such creatures. Maybe it would be the goblins speaking for the Goblin Liaison officers, wizards and witches!
