Dragon over Hogsmeade
A Hebridean Black has been spotted recently in the forest outside of Hogsmeade. The dragon has been sighted hunting and flying rather close to Hogwarts as well. The DRCMC have been called to the scene to maintain and observe the beast as it stays within the forest. Businesses in Hogsmeade have also been noted to be doing their best to keep attention from being drawn from the beast.
Hebridean Black’s are one of the two native dragons species of the United Kingdom, and they are known for being remarkably aggressive. As such, the DRCMC has been asking people to avoid the forest. Patrols of ministry workers have been noted and spotted about the forest ensuring people keep distance from where the dragon appears to be nesting.
One can only hope that this matter is settled soon and hopefully before any witches or wizards are gobbled up.
A Veela Made Me Do It!
An interesting report out of Diagon Alley claims a fetching young man has been using his veela charms to entice men and women into illicit affairs causing some moral alarm amongst more conservative witches and wizards. However, the Daily Prophet would like to remind our readers that veelas cannot force anyone to do something they weren’t already inclined to do- no matter how charming they may be!
Draconic Mix Ups!
It seems the sightings of the Hebridean Black around Hogsmeade have put many people on edge.There have been reports of close encounters of the draconic type within Hogsmeade that have been chalked up to overactive imaginations and a lack of knowledge on the creatures. One such mixup occurred during the German Market held at the time of Hogwart’s last Hogsmeade Sunday where a Professor of said school mixed up a Firedrake working at a roasted nut stand with a Dragon. Reports claim he even tried to cast on it! A secondary popular report of a draconic mix up has been of Old Man Blithers claiming the Hebridean Black stole his socks off the line.
Dementors on the Steady Decline!?
Some claim Dementor attacks have begun to steadily decrease. However, neither the DRCMC nor the Ministry have released any reports indicating such. It’s possible the emergency Patronus lessons held earlier in the year by the DRCMC have assisted in the decline of reported Dementor attacks. Still, it is advised you keep your wands on you as the threat still appears to be very much about.
Recently with the economic recovery headed by Prime Minister Soo taking effect, many have noted more goblins out and about. This has sparked debate among various groups of witches and wizards on whether goblins who claim no relation to the robbery of Gringotts last year should be allowed to freely mingle without proper investigation of their whereabouts on that fateful day and the weeks surrounding it.
