Hey there Eagles and Eaglettes,
For those of you who haven't tripped over the University of Michgan/Starkid production of A Very Potter Musical. It's all the rage on the internet. It's a parody/farce/comedy 2-act musical based on books (2),4,6,7. I don't think I've enjoyed anything so much in years.

Pop up a big bowl of popcorn and break out the butter beer. Best December/Winter Solstice festivities present you could ever give yourself.

Keep flying high
Gert

OK. I can't help it. Here are the lyrics to the opening song of A Very Potter Musical. How coooooool is this!
Happy new year Eagles and Eaglettes
Gert


HARRY:
Underneath these stairs
I hear the sneers and feel glares of
my cousin, my uncle and my aunt.

Can't believe how cruel they are
and it stings my lighting scar
to know that they'll never ever give me what I want.

I know I don't deserve these
stupid rules made by the Dursleys
here on Privet drive.

Can't take all of these muggles,
but despite all of my struggles,
I'm still alive.

Im sick of summer and this waiting around.
Man, its September, and Im skipping this town
Hey Its no mystery, theres nothing here for me now

I gotta get back to Hogwarts,
I gotta get back to school.
Gotta get myself to Hogwarts,
where everybody knows I'm cool.

Back to wizards and witches, and magical beasts,
to goblins and ghosts and to magical feasts.
Its all that I love, and it's all that I need.
HOGWARTS, HOGWARTS, I think I'm going back---

I'll see my friends, gonna laugh 'til we cry
take my Firebolt, gonna take to the sky
NO WAY this year anyone's gonna die, and it's gonna be totally awesome

I'll cast some spells, with a flick of my wand
defeat the dark arts, yeah bring it on!
and do it all with my best friend Ron, 'cuz together we're totally awesome

RON: yeah, and it's gonna be totally awesome!

(Dialogue)

RON:
It's been so long, but we're going back
don't go for work, don't go there for class

HARRY:
As long as were together--

RON:
-- gonna kick some ass

HARRY & RON:
... and its gonna be totally awesome!
This year we'll take everybody by storm,
stay up all night, sneak out of our dorm

HERMIONE:
but let's not forget that we need to perform well in class
if we want to pass our OWLS!

(Dialogue)

HERMIONE:
I may be frumpy, but I'm super smart
check out my grades, they're "A's" for a start
what I lack in looks well I make up in heart,
and well guys, yeah, that's totally awesome

this year I plan to study a lot...

RON:
that would be cool if you were actually hot

HARRY:
hey Ron, come on, we're the only friends that she's got!

RON:
and that's cool...

HERMIONE:
... and that's totally awesome

HARRY, RON, HERMIONE:
yeah it's so cool, and it's totally awesome!

we're sick of summer and this waiting around
it's like we're sitting in the lost and found
don't take no sorcery
for anyone to see how...

we gotta get back to hogwarts
we gotta get back to school
we gotta get back to hogwarts
where everything is magic-cooooool

EVERYONE:
back to wizards and witches, and magical beasts
to goblins and ghosts and to magical feasts
it's all that I love, and it's all that I need at
HOGWARTS, HOGWARTS

Hello! This is WAY laaaate, I've been distracted, to say the least. *G* Well the Eagles surely have seen me in this area before, I sneaked into the Ravenclaw common room every now and then, especially back then when our dungeons got locked up or messed up or broke. Anyway, my name is Faye Roderick, im a lazy-to-the-bone 5th year, and I'm a ssssssnake! I love snacks, and I also LOVE YOU ALEXIA RIAPER [pretend there's lots of spammy hearts here]. There. I've said it. HA.

*squishes the most awesome snake ever*

And lol I haven't watched A Very Potter Musical, but if you lot say it's worth watching, then I should definitely give it a go. I'll put it on my to-do list right away. *g*

I always like a polite welcome. From now on I should visit you Eagles more often, you all seem like such wonderful people.
Anyhow, I'll be looking forward to make the Roost my second home, after the Sett. :)

Why hello there dear ravenclaws! My first duty hear is to express my utter confusion, why are ravenclaw students "eagles" when the name oh so boldy suggests a raven perhaps, maybe wit isn't what you should be known for hahaha. Secondly I would like to express sincere remorse for not being deemed cool and awesome enough by the sorting hat to be put in to my dear house of Hufflepuff, I suppose we just all can't be winners. Anyway, my name is Maquelly John :) I am a first year hufflepuff student. I love dance and live for it (as people in hufflepuff are soon discovering!). If you are ever up for a chat send me a HOL message, I greatly appreciate these (as I rarely recieve any :'( it must be because my awesomeness imtimidates people!) looking forward to hearing from you guys.

Welcome, Maquelly and Hermione (I know you, Zoki, but welcome to you, too)!

Well, ravens are sort of depressing, aren't they? In many cultures, including our own, Ravens are thought to be symbols/harbingers or death. Not exactly the best mascot for a house, I'd say. Eagles, on the other hand, are majestic and clever. :)

What kind of dance do you do, Maquelly?

Feel free to visit whenever you like, Hermione! (And everyone else, of course.) :)

Actually, to waffle on about the Eagle as the symbol of Ravenclaw.

The raven was a mistake on the Hogwarts Crest in the U.S.A, Scholastic editions of HP. Each house has a symbol that is remotely but not really related to the names of each founder:
Goderic Gryffindor has a Lion and not a Gryffin or a Dormouse.
Helga Hufflepuff has a Badger instead of a Heffalump or a Puffskein.
I think Salazar Slytherin is the only one that has a symbol that remotely reflects his name: Slithering Snake.

I suppose Rowena Ravenclaw could have been called Emily Eagleton and then the eagle symbology would have been obvious but Emily Eagleton sounds just plain awful and not very medieval at all.

Hope everybody is having a wonderful Spring semester. I am so far behind in everthing
Hugs and kisses
Gert
