Dear Ginny,

Hi! How is everything? I'm bored to death as usual. I wish summer break was over, or that I could go to Diagon Alley to get my schoolbooks. I'll try to send my old ones over so at least YOU can get some studying done.

Mum and Dad were furious that I shrank my teeth so for punishment I can't get my schoolbooks till August 24. It's horrible!

How's Ron? Have you heard from Harry? I haven't gotten a letter since last week, which seems like ages ago. Have you been feeding Pigwidgeon sugar? He was bouncing off the walls and kept hooting. Did you hear what happened to Malfoy, Crabbe, and Goyle?

The girl next door is insufferable! She just moved here from the U.S. She's a witch too, but she doesn't even try to hide it! Moreover, she thinks I'm a Muggle. And she keeps going on and on about how she knows Harry Potter and how they're best friends. What a load of rubbish!

She is going to Hogwarts and she'll be in fifth year too! If she's in Gryffndor…

And, my parents think we're best friends or something so I have to get my schoolbooks with her! I can't stand it! Well at least Harry's going to have a good time.

Hermione

Dear Hermione,

This is the first time in a week Ron has let me use his owl. He says it is because I named him Pigwidgeon. I say it's because Percy almost beat him at chess.

Nothing is happening here. Bill is coming tomorrow and Charlie came a few days ago. It is boring here because all they ever do is either lock themselves in their rooms or play Quidditch. But, we are going to the Quidditch Museum the day after Bill comes! Ron is psyched!

What happened to Malfoy? If he did something bad, Ron and Dad will be so happy!

We are going to have dinner with some muggles tonight! Something for work, Dad says. I think it will be cool, but I don't know if they have any kids. If they don't I know Mum won't let me bring any schoolbooks.

I am worried about Harry though. I haven't heard from him. If Ron has, he wouldn't tell me. When I asked Ron if Harry had wrote him, Ron just said "It's not your business you little git. You still don't fancy him, do you?" How rude!

I hope I see you in Diagon Alley! I don't know when we're going. When I do, I'll tell you.

Ginny

 

 

7/27/95

Dear Ginny,

How was the Quidditch Museum? Did you learn any new charms or spells?

Malfoy got in trouble because of the spells we put on him. The Ministry thought he did them after term ended!

I can't wait till term starts. The Muggle library is so small.

I just got a letter from Harry! He's fine, but the Dursleys are worse then ever because of the Ton Tongue Toffee.

How's Ron? I haven't heard from him in a while. I've been writing him, but he's not responding. Is it because I visited Viktor this summer? I hope not, because we are just friends.

The girl next door is still pretty bad.

Hermione

 

 

 

 

 

 

7/29/95

Dear Hermione,

Ron is being so rude today! I just asked him what he was so angry about (he has been locking himself up in his room like Percy), and he just told me to bug off! I think he is still angry with Viktor, not you though, I think.

Anyway, the Quidditch Museum was fun. Even though I don't play it, I had a good time. It was one of those times when I am glad I have some many brothers.

There was this rotten spell that seekers can put on each other to distract one another. Charlie wouldn't tell me it though.

I am so glad Harry is all right. He had nothing to do with those toffees! Fred and George are at it again, but hopefully Mum hasn't caught on yet. I do enjoy their jokes.

We are going to Diagon Alley on August 23. Do you think your parents will let you go a day early? I am getting lonesome for a girl. There is only Mum and me!

Our dinner with the Muggles was fine. How is that girl? Nothing else is happening here.

Ginny

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

7/31/95

Dear Ginny,

I asked Mum if we could go on the 23rd and she said YES! I can't wait to see you again. And she said that I am going to spend the rest of the time till term starts at the Leaky Cauldron! Do you think you can too? I'll die if the only person that I have to talk to is Elizabeth. Is Harry coming? I think it would do him good to get away from the Dursleys.

There is only one problem. Elizabeth. She's the next door neighbor, the one I told you about and she has to go with us. Well, she's going to freak when she finds out that I know Harry Potter. She didn't believe me when I said I knew Harry, this ought to be quite funny.

It's a good thing that Ron is not mad (well, not too mad) at me. It just wouldn't be the same if he was. Plus this term would be really boring.

What did you do at the Muggles? It's probably a lot like our dinner. Have you ever tried pizza? It's really good. We should go to the Muggle street for lunch when we visit Diagon Alley. I know where there's a pizza parlor nearby.

Hermione

 

 

8/2/95

Dear Hermione,

I can come too! I had to practically force my Mum to let me. I told her and told her that you would have a horrible time if I didn't come. Finally Ron asked her and she said yes! (I guess Ron isn't angry at you any more)

Harry is coming soon. Dumbeldore said he could come. Mum and Dad won't say why we have to get Dumbeldore's permission. Anyway he is coming.

For the Muggle dinner, it was quite boring. I forgot what we had. Fred pretended to fall asleep, Percy kicked him under the table, and George whispered that it wasn't very prefect-like to kick people. I think I was the only one who heard him though. I wish something fun or exciting could have happened there.

What is pizza? I have never even heard of it before. I hope I can try it when we come to Diagon Alley. Pigwedgeon is acting like he has had a major overdose of sugar. I don't know if I can get this letter tied on his leg.

Ginny

PS: Ron wants to know if you are still writing to "that Krum git." I told him to shut up, but he won't listen to me.

 

 

 

8/4/95

Dear Ginny,

Tell Ron that, yes, I'm still writing to Viktor. And that he's being stupid about all this.

It's going to be so much fun! We will have to get pizza when we're there. Elizabeth is excited, but I wish she wasn't coming. But, her little sister is nice and she'll be in first year.

It's good that Harry is coming. Plus it will be nice to have everyone there. And plus, maybe I could convince them to wear their S.P.E.W. badges. Oh, here's the school owl. It's a bit late , but at least it made it. Did you get the schoolbooks I sent you? I wish I had my new ones already. I guess I'll have to wait till we go.

Did Ron hear about the new broom that's coming out? I think it's called

Star Sweeper, but I'm not sure. It's supposed to be really good. Don't ask how I know and why I care about Quidditch. Viktor's got me into it.

Hermione

PS: Pigwidgeon is unusually calm. Is he sick?

 

8/4/95

Harry,

Man, life here is a bummer. Percy talks about everything boring. Pig is full of sugar, Ginny is making life miserable, Fred and George are making a racket, and Hermione isn't helping either. You hear from her lately? I hope she isn't still with that Krum git.

The Muggles treating you all right? Mum says you can come. We'll pick you up soon. At least Mum says one good thing. She won't let me get a Star Sweeper. Don't Fred and George have enough money? Stupid. Idiotic. Dumb.

Tell me if you hear from Hermione. I don't really care if you do though. Ginny is telling me to shut up. Well, if she acts like that I won't let her use Pig. See you.

Ron

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

8/6/95

Dear Hermione,

Pigwidgeon is not sick. He is just tired. Ron has been using him constantly. I think he is writing to Harry. I hope he is writing to Harry.

I have been looking over the schoolbooks you sent me. I try to be as dedicated a student as you. I hope you can help me at Diagon Alley.

The Star Sweeper is a new broom. It is from the makers of the Cleansweep 7's. I know this because all of my brothers (except Percy) love Quidditch. Ron is trying to get Mum to buy one, but they are very expensive.

Percy is still in the Magical Cooperation department. He is having a hard time, after what happened at Hogwarts. No one here really talks about it. Whenever the subject comes up we all go silent.

I would like to meet Elizabeth and her sister. What is her sister's name?

Oh, I just heard another explosion from Fred and George's room. They sure put those Galleons to good use. Charlie is going to their room. I can see all of this from my room. The door is open.

Nothing much else is happening. Percy is boring us all to death, but that is all. Now I am sounding like Ron. See you soon.

Ginny

 

8/6/95

Dear Ginny,

That's good that Pigwidgeon is not sick. Sure, I'll help you with schoolwork.

Elizabeth's little sister's name is Ella. She's really nice. If only Ella had been born first. She's very easy to like.

The Star Sweeper is better than the Firebolt. I just got a letter from Viktor and he keeps talking about Quidditch. Now I know all about it.

I had forgotten all about Rita Skeeter, so I let her out yesterday, and she started to buzz around my head and I told her that I would report her if she didn't leave, and then she was gone.

Can an Animagus Apparate when in animal form?

Hermione

PS: Tell Ron that I am going to kill him when I see him. He hasn't written to me since end of term.

 

 

 

 

 

8/8/95

Dear Hermione,

I asked Dad about the Animagus and he said they can Apparate. I had to be careful not to let the Rita Skeeter thing slip though. I am glad you are going to help me, I can't get the Summoning Charm, or any of the Herbology!

I would like to meet Ella. Elizabeth doesn't sound nice.

Ron is still trying to convince Mum to buy him a Star Sweeper. She won't. When I told him you were going to kill him, he just laughed. Just like Bill. Bill is my favourite brother, but I don't like it when Ron, or any one else, acts like him. Harry was supposed to come yesterday, but we were out of Floo powder. I hope the Muggles are treating him all right.

Percy says he is working very hard on "Ministry Business" But George told me that he and Fred snuck into his room when he was gone and found out that he just doesn't want us to know he's writing to Penelope! That was so funny I almost laughed, but Percy came around the corner and I had to shut my mouth really quick.

I will see you soon. And I hope that Ron writes you. I know he is writing to Harry.

Ginny

 

 

 

 

 

8/10/95

Ron,

I don't think life's THAT bad. I did notice Pig was a little overstrung.

When you come tell Fred and George not to bring any more candy, I got in loads of trouble.

How's Percy's job going? Just kidding!

Ron I think you've gone over board on this Krum thing. And if you really want to know you can write to Hermione. I don't know and I don't plan to try to find out, it's her life not mine. But I did hear from her.

Yeah the Muggles are all right. The first month was the worst. At least Dudley won't come near me any more. They went out one night and try'd to call Mrs. Figg but she wasn't home which is odd. Do you think that she's Arabella Figg? One of the people Dumbledore sent Snuffles to find?

There is probably a good reason that you're Mum and Dad aren't getting you a new broom, although the Star Sweeper does sound cool. And think of it this was-at least you've got Parents.

Can't wait.

Harry

P.S. I think Hermiones mad at you.

8/10/95

Dear Ron,

Why haven't you been writing to me?! I don't get it! You haven't been righting back at all. Just because of some stupid thing that happened at Christmas! I mean really! And then I get all this stuff from Harry saying that you're asking about me. Well why don't you just ask me?! Did I act like this when you were acting weird about Fleur Delacour?

Yes I'm still writing to Viktor. I don't get why you get so upset when I mention him. You were so excited when you saw him at the Quidditch cup. Viktor and me are just friends. That's all.

I hear that the American team Fitchburg Finches beat Puddlemere United. Isn't Oliver Wood on that team?

Thank you for asking if Ginny could stay at the leaky Cauldron. I was going to be bored to death.

Hermione

 

 

 

 

 

8/12/95

Hermione,

Chudley Cannons are still the best. They'll beat Oliver one day. You been writing to Harry? I have. We were going to get him yesterday, but the Floo powder ran out. That STINKS.

You know what stinks worse? That stupid Krum. How can you like an idiot like that. Fleur is different. She's a veela. Come on.

Still studying. Studying makes me feel sick.

You know what's even sicker. You actually writing to that stupid Krum. If I haven't gotten my point out yet. You should stop writing to that guy. You just should. Period.

Nothing else is happening here. See you.

Ron

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

8/12/95

Harry,

You sound like Hermione. Ginny says she's really mad at me too. Like I care. I wrote to her, but I didn't get a letter back yet.

Sorry we couldn't pick you up mate. The Floo powder's gone. Dad says we'll pick you up when we go to Diagon Ally. So tell those Muggles you live with to keep the fireplace unblocked. Ginny says she want's to meet a friend there. No idea who she's talking about though.

Mum won't let me get a Star Sweeper. I hate being poor. Percy is still writing Penelope. It's sickening. I am never going to fall for a girl like that. Never.

Ron

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

8/14/95

Dear Ron,

I can't believe you still like Fleur Delacour. The point is that you only like her for her looks. If she didn't look like that and if she wasn't a veela, you wouldn't even care. And what do you care if I write to Viktor? I can do it if I want to.

I'm still going to hex you when were on the train. So you'd better get the Shield Charm to work. You might find that studying makes you sick but not me, I love studying.

I have a favour to ask of you, can you teach me to play Quidditch? I don't really know what's going on in the games except when someone scores a goal or when Harry catches the Snitch.

Did you hear that Professor McGonagall's niece and nephew is coming to Hogwarts? She'll be in fifth year too. There moving here because there dad got called to help the Ministry.

Hermione

 

 

 

 

 

 

8/14/95

Dear Ginny,

Thanks about finding out if Animagi Apparate. Harry had trouble with the Summoning Charm too. It's all in learning the theory. And Herbology is a lot easier in fourth year then it look's.

You and Ella will get along great! Even if she is three years younger. You'll see what I mean when you meet her.

Couldn't Ron just earn money then exchange the Muggle money at Gringotts for wizard money?

Well He won't be laughing when I see him. Trust me. I liked Bill a lot, he was nice. That happens a lot with my cousin Raoul, my other cousins imitate him.

Poor Percy with people like you guy's around he's never going to hear the end of it (I meant that as a good thing). And Percy probably was working on Ministry business.

Hermione

 

 

 

8/14/95

Ron,

Ron obviously you do care or else you wouldn't keep asking whether I've heard from her.

That's ok about the Floo powder. I only have to wait about a week.

I think Ginny was talking about Hermione's new next door neighbour. I got the impression that Hermione doesn't like her. Maybe it's because she's better at school work then Hermione (yeah right, like anyone is better at school work then her).

I somehow can't see you falling for a girl like that ether but you never know (just kidding!!!).

Can't wait to see you.

Harry

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

8/16/95

Harry,

I can't imagine anyone better then Hermione at anything. We are going to a Quidditch game

(Cannons vs. Puddlemere United) in a few minutes. I finally wrote to Hermione. She is still writing to Krum. That's stupid.

See you in a week.

Ron

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

8/16/95

Dear Hermione,

Percy was NOT working on Ministry Business. Unless Penelope is Ministry business. Did you write Ron yet? I told him to. We are going to a Quidditch match today. It's the Chudley Cannons, Ron's favourite team. Ron is in a really good mood right now.

I can't wait to see you! Now, I have to race Ron to his room so I can send this letter. See you soon!

Ginny

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

8/16/95

Hermione,

We were just at a Quidditch match. The Cannons rule! I'll teach you to play Quidditch, as long as you promise to beat the heck out of Krum. And I am not kidding.

Fleur is only a half-veela. And what is so big about her? Studying definitely makes me ill. Go on hex me on the train, but I'm getting really good at the shield charm. Better then you even.

I'll see you at Diagon Ally, all right. How can someone get into Hogwarts in there fifth year? They're all mad.

See you,

Ron

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

8/18/95

Ron,

I see what you mean, nobody could be as good at school work as Hermione.

Who won the match? And who's the Seeker? Did you see Oliver?

I haven't seen Dudley for a really long time (not that I care). Guess where he was. He was in the cupboard under the stairs .

The bad news is that Aunt Marge is coming! I need help! Can you pick me up earlier?

Now I REALLY can't wait to see you!

Harry

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

8/18/95

Dear Ron,

Thanks. I don't think I could beat Viktor, if I was a expert on Quidditch.

I'll write to Viktor less often if you do the same to Fleur. Ginny told me that you are writing to her. And stop bugging me and I'll do the same.

How was the Quidditch game? You sure didn't go into detail about it.

She'll just be sSrted like the rest of us. I hope she's not in Slytherin, that would be horrible! She's really good at stuff like Charms, Transfiguration (of course), and D.A.D.A.

Hermione

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

8/18/95

Dear Ginny,

Yes, Ron wrote to me. I think I've vented enough on him I should probably stop. That doesn't mean I'm not going to hex him. But maybe I'll go easy on him.

Percy probably was working on M.O.M. business but got sidetracked. Not that I know her but…

It was Chudley Cannons against what? And who won?

Who won to Ron's room?

You know I think you're wearing Pigwidgeon out. He looked tired.

Hermione

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

8/20/95

Dear Hermione,

Puddlemere United won, I was upset for Ron

(who was devastated), though it was a good watch. The Seeker, Roger Ekens, was very good he caught the Snitch about half way. The Cannons Seeker Orville Wench, was horrible. The final score was 40-190. The score was tied when Ekens caught the Snitch.

I can't wait to see you! Diagon Ally will be fun. Fred and George want to go down Knockturn Ally without Mum seeing. I really want to meet Elizabeth and Ella.

Oh , I beat Ron last time but it looks like I'd better hurry up or he will beat me. See you on the 23rd!

Ginny

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

8/20/95

Harry,

Orville Wench is stupid. He knows when to catch the snitch. Maybe he doesn't. That's it Ekens got the idea. Anyway, Chudley Cannons will always be the best.

Been practicing the Shield Charm. Hermione's going to hex me on the train. Not if I have any thing to say about it! She sound's really weird in her letters. She wants to know how to play Quidditch! She has never been interested before anyway I'll ask her when we go to Diagon Ally. We're picking you up on the 23rd. Hope that awful Muggle isn't there yet. See you.

Ron

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

8/22/95

Dear Ginny,

It's too bad that Puddlemere United won. And not the Chuddley Cannons. I can see why Ron is upset about this. But did they have Wood playing as Keeper? If they did, I can see why they won! I can't believe that I know so much and want to learn how to play Quidditch. It's just odd to me.

When are we going to pick up Harry? When we get there? Or when we've been there for a wile? I have his and Ron's copy of Fantastic beasts and where to find them so Harry must have mine.

And I can't believe what I saw in a Muggle shop today. I saw Chocolate Frogs! And they had Wizard cards! But they weren't moving so that's good. And I found a recipe for Butterbeer. But I haven't try'd it out yet. I'll show it to you when I see you.

Hermione

P.S. Don't bother responding because I'll see you the day after you get this.

 

 

 

 

 

8/22/95

Ron,

I can't believe that the Chuddley Cannons lost to Puddlemere United. Unless they had Wood for a strategist. Knowing him, he probably drilled it into them. I just got a letter from Snuffles and he seems ok but I can't believe he's come back and they'll be looking for him. Maybe not like before but still… In case, you were wondering where our fantastic beasts and where to find them is Hermione has it. She wrought to tell me.

In case you're wondering where our 'Fantastic beasts and where to find them' is Hermione has it. She wrote to tell me.

Harry
