Let’s face it, everyone has questions that they are embarrassed to ask. Or you believe that you are alone in dealing with a situation. This is not true. Fickle Firsties is are the questions that you want to ask but aren’t sure how to.
I want to learn more about jinxes and hexes.. but I’m not sure where to start, and I don’t want to ask because I don’t want people thinking I’m up to no good.
-Just curious… really!
Be patient. You will learn about jinxes, hexes, and even curses soon enough. Trust me. You will. It will depend on your charms, transfiguration, and even the defense against the dark arts professors. Everything happens in it’s own time and season. However, if you feel the need to learn a little bit more about them I would check the library or your standard book of spells first year. There are several jinxes and hexes that you will be learning throughout this year.
A Former Firstie
Why did you name this Fickle Firsties? Might need to explain that part to encourage questions – “Fickle” implies we aren’t steady, loyal, reliable… and you want us to stay, right?
We don’t refer to the firsties as “fickle” without reason. It’s your first year here at Hogwarts and you (general you, meaning everyone) are fickle. You will develop, you will change your mind about what you believe, and you will grow in different ways. We, here at the Owl Post, are not saying that you aren’t loyal, steady, and reliable- in fact- we hope that the changes that you go through these next seven years will be positive ones that will help shape the wizarding world for the better.
This is the year you start to discover who you, as a person, are without your parents being there. This article is meant to help answer questions that we have all had and were afraid to ask. We, here at the Owl Post, are not trying to mock or put down our beloved firsties. Because we were all have been there.
I hope this explains it better,
A Former Fickle Firstie
