You've caught the urbane Phineas perfectly--he's as out of place in the Forest, splattered by sap and assaulted by Bowtruckles, as one of Oscar Wilde's dandies would be. I'm not in the least surprised by his motive for declaring the forest forbidden (concern for the students doesn't even enter into it--hee!), or his ungentlemanly instinct to preserve his Slytherin posterior. But Leopoldina (delicious name) the historian and amateur naturalist is an unexpected treat. From a (Muggle) forest ecologist's standpoint, it's not wholly plausible that a clear-cut in the forest would remain barren for long...but this being a magical forest, I can imagine that the very trees would shun the place.

Will we one day have a story of Leopoldina's second career as a Quidditch referee?

Someone suggested Rowan Atkinson be cast as Phineus Nigellus, so that's who I kept envisioning as I read this. :) Lots of fun humour in this, and Leopoldina's writing style is wonderfully appropriate for a tome like Hogwarts, A History. I also like the subtle nod to conservationism at the end. Well done!

Lovely piece, and great visual: Phineas Nigellus running away from a Gryphorn!

Meg,

What a wonderful idea and so very in keeping with the ideals of the contest.

I laughed out loud at the two of them, how cross the headmaster must be but you never let us feel sorry for him, definitely NOT a Gryffindor.

May be we will see more of Leopoldina in the future (or is that the past?)
