Hogwarts, Hogwarts, Hoggy Warty Hogwarts, Teach us something, please

The Leaving Feast was over, the speeches were said and students were now milling about on Hogwarts grounds, some already on the walk to Hogsmeade and the Hogwarts Express that would take them home. For the vast majority of the students, it was simply the end to another year. But for the class of 1998 it was the end of what was perhaps the most important part of their lives to date. Hogwarts was more than a school. It was a refuge, it was a place of bonding and friendship. It was a home, and now most of these students would scarcely enter it's halls ever again.

However, what Hogwarts takes from the student in terms of respect, effort, time, sweat and tears, it also gives, and it gives completely. Experience. Knowledge. Kinship. The very essence of magic. These students and this graduating class would take Hogwarts with them, for good or ill, for the rest of their days. That was the power of these old grounds, what was created by four friends over 1000 years ago: this eternal magic of the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

And while that flighty temptress adventure awaited the students on their return, she would not avoid the graduating class. Indeed, they all knew that though their time at Hogwarts was over, their lives, the life of a witch or a wizard, would be far from pedestrian.

The black lake reflected the sun's bright rays as students took over the Hogwarts grounds on their way home, to say their good-byes and good lucks.
