Welcome to Year7

The Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry is a darker place this year than ever before. The Dark Lord is on the rise outside the walls, and it is an open secret that his influence has penetrated the Ministry of Magic. Muggleborn wizards have been declared illegal. Fear rules the streets, and many wizarding families have been murdered or gone into hiding. Inside Hogwarts, Snape has replaced Dumbledore as Headmaster, despite persistent rumors of foul play, and the Dark Arts are openly taught. Some students are reveling in the changes, while others are pursuing quiet-- and not-so-quiet-- rebellion. Familiar faces are missing from the classrooms, and new students replace them. Almost every day, new word arrives of relatives killed and friends vanished. And yet, school goes on. There are NEWTs to be studied for, and house points to be won; Quidditch matches to be played, and, of course, dates to be found for the Yule Ball. Your time at Hogwarts is coming to an end, one way or another; you'd better get everything you can out of it.
