Well. *rubs hands* Who's looking forward to going back to school?


[[Filtered to Ancient Runes students, second-year and up]]

If you're taking my class in the fall and haven't yet confirmed it on your class schedule, please do so at the first opportunity.

You will need the following texts: for second years, clean copies of Twenty-Five Magical Languages by Ufar Haldah and Deciphering Ancient Runes by Smedly Lurge; upperclassmen will retain Haldah and add Angela Cove's Symbols of Power: Linguistic Secrets Revealed, and everyone will need the year-appropriate volume of Wright's White Rites Rightly Writ with its accompanying workbook. Much of your homework will be detailed in Wright's, so don't start your year without it.

To those who are taking this class for the first time, welcome, and I trust you will find it illuminating. In days to come, you will use runes, hieroglyphs, and other ancient writings frequently in your studies; they are invaluable for everything from Transfiguration to Arithmancy. You will draw them on the surfaces of potions; you will inscribe them on wards to shield your loved ones from harm; by the end of the year you will know the pros and cons of six types of parchment, eight other material surfaces, and thirty types of inks with which to create symbolic magic, along with the scripts to write it all with. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask.

*a note is here appended for Reggie, detailing materials, supplies, and texts needed for the coming year... although Bob isn't exactly sanguine in thinking that anything in the note will get through to his new TA*
