For those who have asked or have considered asking about the flooding currently occurring in West Virginia: Our family is safe. Our house is up on a mountain and far enough from the flood plains to not be directly affected. However, there are many people in our area who are affected. If you wish to help those in need, please contact the WV division of the American Red Cross or the WV VOAD, or check out this Huffington Post article for additional links.

Harry: This must be it, there's a light up ahead...

[[Harry looks upon someone accessing the Mirror of Awkandsed in a large room]]
Harry: (in thought) The Mirror of Awkandsed! And...
Harry: Professor Quux?

[[Prof Quux turns back to Harry and they are both reflected in the screen of the Mirror]]
Prof Quux: Yes, Mr. Barker. Surprised to see me? I suppose you were expecting to find Professor... Sysape?

[[Harry and Prof Quux face each other]]
Harry: Actually, I never really thought Sysape was all that bad. A bit intimidating, maybe, but--
Prof Quux: But you were wrong! It was I, not Sysape! Ha ha!
