Dear Great-Aunt Mina,

I'm so sorry that it happened under such up shocking circumstances, and I have a feeling you'd probably have rather stayed with your creatures, but I'm glad you're to be our new Head, and I think you'll be a good one.

I wanted to let you know that I'm here to support you, both as a senior Hufflepuff Prefect, and just as myself.

As far as the Prefecting goes, you can rely on Ernie and me--feel free to put us to work and generally delegate as you need to--and we'll make sure everyone's digging in the same den, so to speak.

I know you've got quite a full load, so anything I can do to lighten it, I'm happy to offer.

Best wishes and love,

I usually try not to come over all prefect-y here in the journals, but I heard a lot of grumbling at the breakfast table this morning about how the Quidditch suspensions are hurting the team, and I had to say something, both as a team member and as a prefect.

First of all, it's not for me to go into the details, but everyone on the team supports Diggory and agrees it was justified, even Bobolis and Smith. You notice they aren't the ones flapping their gums about how it's unfair?

Second, for all the people moaning about how it hurts our chances of winning the next match--what is Hufflepuff known for on the pitch? Playing hard, but playing with honour, that's what. Anything less isn't just isn't in the spirit of the sett. Winning's brilliant, but it's not worth losing that.

Also, it's one match. One Match. They could have got suspended for the whole season.

And finally, if you really care about Hufflepuff Quidditch as much as you say you do, take a minute to support Rickett and Goshal and let them know that you have confidence in them.

We're a team, both on the pitch and in the sett as a whole, and it's time we started acting like it.

Was the finale of the duel as brilliant as everyone says?

I missed the whole latter bit because I was out in the antechamber consoling Thalia West, and tearing a strip off Delia Forney and Kelley Drumgoole for daring her to come with them.

They were well shaken up themselves (well, Delia was, I get the impression Kelley's seen a fair amount of duelling at home) so they listened better than they might have otherwise.

I expected some foolhardy younger ones to get in, but I figured it'd be Gryffindors. Shows what I know.

Third years are the worst! First and second years are still a bit in awe of prefects, mostly, and fourth years aren't, but have the sense to keep their heads down most of the time.

Third years, as far as I can tell, have neither awe nor sense. It occurs to me that we were third years your first year prefecting--I feel like I should apologize on behalf of our whole year!

Please tell me it gets easier at some point.
