*More what I’d like to see, than necessarily what it is we’re going to get, don’t hold me as a futurist. Imagine signing in to Pottermore as a first year (of course, we must all learn to run before we can fly). Term starts in September, but you can still come in as a late […]

Which is made worse by the fact that I’ve already done this once. But that was back when the first […]
