Who: Everybody! (well, unless you're dead or in prison or on the lam, I suppose - but not just students!)
When: Tuesday, July 7, 1998
Where: Out on the lawn, Hogwarts, Scotland
Why: To celebrate! (and make some money for the War victims)
I look around the clearing outside where everything's been set up with a small smile of satisfaction curling my lips. After all that stress, after our plans being disrupted because we all thought we were going to die, despite OWLs (which I hope, despite everything, I still managed to pass, at least, even if my marks aren't stellar), we still managed to get this off the ground. That takes some talent, I think.
First is the booth where Hagrid is standing, ready to take tours into the Forbidden Forest, and closer to the Pitch is the booth where you can sign up for the All-Star Quidditch matches (or simply pay your sickles to watch, if you haven't bought the one galleon for everything deal). Over on the other side of the clearing, closer to the castle, I see where the Kissing Booth is set up, and I see that at least Sylvie Fawcett is already sitting there (Lavender or Charlotte or Wayne may be, too, but I can't quite tell from where I'm standing at the moment), as well as the booth where the food (some of it homemade, some of it provided by the house-elves because we simply didn't have the time, nyah, Hermione!). There's a set up near the lake for the Merfolk concerts (there are three planned for various intervals today) and the booth where you can flash your wristband or give your ticket for the boat tour on the lake.
Then here in the middle of it all, where I'm standing at the moment, the carousel Lily's grandma managed to procure for us, what I feel is the tour de force.
Being one of those people that always does things fairly, I paid my galleon for an all day wristband already, though at the moment I'm still too busy looking at everything and making sure that it at least starts smoothly before having my own fun.
Notes to self: make sure Hermione doesn't find out about the house-elf food, try to get the concerts started on time, make sure the people at the Kissing Booth don't kill each other. Yup.
