"Your horns will appeal to species you may have otherwise ignored. Remember to keep an open mind."

Does this mean I can control spiders and bugs as well as snakes?

Journal of Wolfram Muir: 23rd of September, 2014

Took a flight down to Somerset to visit a friend down at the Modesty Rabnott Snidget Reservation. Wonderful birds, snidgets, truly wonderful. For nearly 200 years Quidditch (then Kwidditch) had remained the same since its beginning—six to a team, two Bludgers, a Quaffle, and three goal posts. However, not until the late 1200s does what is now our modern Golden Snitch come into the game.

The bird photographed above is a Golden Snidget—a curious little thing, bright gold in colour, and notoriously fast. Now, as I was saying, in the late 1200s during a Kwidditch match in Kent, a man released a snidget into the air and promised the man who caught it a sum of one hundred and fifty galleons. Thankfully, the woman who the reservation is named after, Modesty Rabnott, quickly rescued it and sent it to safety.

Sadly though, the poor Golden Snidgets would become a tradition in the game for nearly a century, with the galleons becoming points and the addition of the modern-day Seeker. With the rise of Golden Snidgets in Kwidditch, so too did the sport of Snidget hunting—knocking down the poor things mid-air to show off skill and reflexes. Now, as you can imagine, with Quidditch being as widespread as it is, the Golden Snidget rapidly started to become more and more scarce. Something had to be done to save these birds, and thankfully reserves were founded and they were classified XXXX magical creatures, not because they were dangerous to us, but because we were dangerous to them—the capture or injury of XXXX creatures results in a heavy sum and depending on the severity of the offense, incarceration.

About seven hundred years later, the Golden Snidget is flourishing wonderfully, and my time at the reserve was spent surrounded by the trills and buzzes of the delightful things. After a particularly playful one nearly poked my eye out, however (how friendly they were!), I thought it best to start flying home with a profound gratitude that these bright little things will still be part of this world. 

Note to self: Remember next time in Diagon Alley to get more fairy eggs. Beetle eyes would be a good idea as well. Low on stock to feed the resident bowtruckles.

I'm in the middle of an essay so I can go and check this out right now but it just popped into my head while listening to the CoS audio book. Do we know how children raised within the magical word are educated before Hogwarts/other magical schools. I was thinking about the Weasley's and how difficult it might be to teach them while raising the younger children before schooling. Magical primary schools? Home tutoring?

We’ll this is a surprise to have this sort of question pop up in my inbox but I’ll give it a crack. I think most children who grew up in wizarding families would have been homeschooled, and that would be the same for the weaslys and I don’t think they would be taught much magic maybe basic stuff, they wouldn’t be properly introduced to magic until they went to hogwarts.

What is your favorite moment of joy? It could be anything. Like the smell of fresh grass, or wearing a new pair of shoes for the first time. x
