Scandal has once again gripped Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry this morning. Just hours ago, the infamous dementors of Azkaban were spotted descending on the school. Owls sent to the headmaster have gone unacknowledged. Students enjoying a day in Hogsmeade were herded back to the castle early by tight-lipped professors spurring theories of varying plausibility. An anonymous source within the Ministry of Magic has unofficially confirmed the rumour that at least one student has been found dead under mysterious circumstances. Fingers are already being pointed toward disgruntled house elves, lonely giants, displaced ghosts, reckless werewolves and the host of other misfits whose employment at the school has been the subject of much recent controversy. Some have even suggested the unlikely return of You-Know-Who!
Several prominent families have been arriving throughout the day to claim their progeny. From the looks of the scene at the front gates, there are not many left within Hogwarts to face whatever forces may be at work in there. We’ll be following this story as it develops!
