Most of the students who have been at Hogwarts for more than a year know the reputation of Adam Fletcher and Kamila Bullstrod. Even after many detentions and loss of hundreds of points, the Headmaster decided to select this devious duo as our Head Boy and Head Girl. As one would imagine, this caused a stir among the students and the faculty alike but the Headmaster held firm in his decision. Little did anyone know how Sytherin’s most notorious students would rise to the occasion and answer Oreyn Barthatimus Fox’s calling. Kamila and Adam led the student body through, in this reporter’s opinion, one of the most turbulent years at Hogwarts and now at the conclusion of this school year, we see the wisdom of the Headmaster’s decision made evident by the affectionate farewells to Adam and Kamila from the students and faculty.
“Best wishes to our lovely Heads, Thanks for all your hard work XO”
“Try not to kill anyone, Kamila. And try not to knock anyone unconscious with that large head of yours either, Fletcher. All jokes aside, you both did a pretty good job of representing our house this year, so thanks guys. Looking forward to seeing you on the outside!
“Everyone doubted that the pair of you could make good Head Students back in September. You’ve definitely proved them wrong. Thanks for representing our house so well and best of luck in the future. See you around Hogsmeade!”
“Uh thank you for never taking points from me or for giving me detention and uh.. good luck?”
“To Bullstrod… Good luck. I know she’s got big dreams for that shop one day and I hope she gets it, she’s worked hard.
To Fletch… Well, it isn’t really goodbye. He’s one of my best mates so I’m sure I’ll see him and Lia around… I’m just surprised he’s made it without being expelled. I guess… ‘Just because we won’t see each other daily, don’t forget I’m here for you.’”
“For Fletch, I’d like to say… umm… Probably don’t cause too much trouble out in the real world an’ that I’ll miss they way he helped us younger students during trouble times. For Kam…. Probably that I hope her the best where she goes an’ thank you for takin’ care of us firsties as well.”

“I’d say to trust their confidence and character. Regardless of how they might of thought of themselves in the past, or how other people thought of them, they put a huge amount of effort into their character in this role, and it shows in how well they handled these tough times. Don’t forget that. It’ll get you through.”
“Good on both of them for overcoming, more then people realize, and showing everyone that Fox’s trust in them with the head positions was warranted.”
-Aisling Rose Opal Jones
“To be honest all you can tell the Headboy is that he has a fathead… the headgirl? She’s sweet, I wish her all the best”
“Well I know that we got off to a rough start but I would like to wish them well and I do hope that they do well in whatever they decide to do. Oh and for Fletcher I just want to say that ‘Lia is very nice and he better always treat her right and not to act like a git with her because she deserves to be treated right.’ For Kamila well please let her know that I hope she does very well after Hogwarts and I do wish her the very best.”
“Oh right, um well I don’t know them very well don’t have much interaction with them…but I guess I hope they have a good summer and good careers to help them outside of Hogwarts.”
“Kamila is wonderful. She used to be such a bratty snob. But she’s become a witch one can truly depend on as a witch just as much as a friend. I can easily see her going places. She’s become quite compassionate….Fletcher….hmm…I didn’t know him well. I tended to avoid him. We butt heads a great deal.”
“When I first began thinking about what I would say to the Head Students, especially Kamila Bullstrod, I found my writing riddled with clichés about school and friendship, discovering how difficult it truly is to describe how much you mean to me. I’ve sat down countless times in the Great Hall, with a large amount of crinkled parchment and frustrated, trying so hard to break through this writer’s block. Part of this is because I’m scared to admit how truly sad I am to know that this is the last time I will see Kamila wandering down the halls, instilling fear or mothering the underclassman. While another part of me has so much trouble finding the right words to explain how beautiful of a magical being you truly are. Regardless of your time here Kamila, you have been one of the most understanding, supportive, and brilliant people I have met at Hogwarts.
There’s no one else who can make me laugh so hard that my sides actually begin to writhe with pain, and never will I meet someone with such superb fashion skills. I’m going to miss the countless hours we spend together attempting to do our homework — only for one of us to break into a mini fashion show, strutting their stuff down the Dueling Room platform. I do not know what I am going to do without you these next two years, but here’s to an amazing future and to a lifelong friendship!
As for Fletch, I am sorry we didn’t get to spend much time throughout my five years at Hogwarts, but I do wish you a bunch of success in your future.”
“I wish them both of luck and thanks to Kamlia for taking me under her wing and being my mentor.”
‘’When you both started out as heads, I don’t think a single person in this castle thought it was the right decision, but you both have proven to be so much more than wrath. Everyone has a choice to be better, a chance to make amends, and the two of you have swept me off my feet with how well you have done to live up to the names of the previous heads.
Kamila, I wish you all the happiness in the future to come. You’re a strong lass, and I pity the poor soul that would try and stand in your way.
Adam, you’re the comfort of my soul. I have seen your highs and lows and everything between. You’re a survivor, a fighter, and a bit of a prick. I will always stand by your side, there is no other person I want to spend my life with.’’
“Fletch. All I can say is HI COUSIN. Seriously though, we’ve gone through a though a lot from you trying to kill me to me interrogating you about your family. It’s been a good run though. Make sure you invite me to the wedding!”
“Kam. What a weird friendship we have. I am so glad that we got everything sorted out. Best of luck with your plans of owning the shop. I know I’ll be coming to you for gown shopping the rest of the time while I’m here at Hogwarts and who knows how long afterwards.”
“I would love to wish them the best luck and also would love to thank Kamila for her advice.”
“Kamila, I never really got to know you over the years but I know you’re quite talented and I wish you the best of luck in whatever you choose to do. Adam, I know you’ve had your share of mischief during your time here but I expect you’ll do splendidly out in the real world. So from one “Head Boy” to another… stay out of trouble.”
“It was great to get to know you guys better this year finally, both as friends and as a Prefect with your help. Keep being awesome (and not crazy). Stay outta trouble!”
“Kam, you and that screaming doll will be missed. Next time just leave it at home over the summer though.”
“We may not have talked much, but the two of you have always been a constant sight in the school. Just remember that these are the first days of the rest of your lives and I know you can both do whatever you set your minds too. Best of luck!”
“Dear Dad… I mean Fletcher,
It was really weird this year pretending I’m not your son who time travelled from the future, but that’s okay. I’m glad you accepted me, even though you had to cast the paternity charm nine times. Just know that if we weren’t able to change the past… well I guess our present and made you Head Boy… the most evil Dark Lady would have come to power. And the muggles would have enslaved us.
Your Son Rylan
You’re great, even though I think Hanz has a venomous bite. Also, thank you for teaching me where babies come from. I’m glad I know they come from snogging and not storks. Just kidding, they grow in the pumpkin patch.
“Honestly, I thought this year would be the worst year in my time at Hogwarts after I heard Kamila and Adam were selected to be Head Girl and Head Boy. I was right, it was but not for the reason I thought it would be. This was a challenging year for me personally but seeing you two rise to the occasion and lead us through such a trying time it was gave me hope that, I too, could change and mend my ways also. You, Adam and Kamila, were the catalyst to show me that a person can change and change for the better. I will always be grateful for your example so I could be the best student and person possible. Godspeed you on your future journeys.”
