Thank heavens the school year has ended. While I will miss a handful of students, I am more than glad most of them are out of my hair (Mister Ferenczy in particular, though I am not sure if he will linger this summer...bugger). Though I must admit, I handed out more good marks this school year than I ever have before, which must mean the new crops of students are getting better instead of worse. That is a welcome relief.
On the note of the petrified students, the mandrake root should be fully mature and ready to adminster shortly. Although, that is no longer the largest of our concerns. If the cause of these unfortunate incidents is not brought to light, Hogwarts will be forced to close its doors. I am doing some research, though I am upset to say I am finding very little so far. Perhaps the others will have more luck than I. Though, I did find something rather interesting I shall share here, to take my mind off of...things.
I am a A Deep Drake!
Hey, I took the http://dragonhame.com online Inner Dragon quiz and found out I am a Deep Drake on the inside.

During combat situations, a true Deep Drake prefers to defeat opponents by the use of spells and other tactics....
The Deep Drake makes it's home in the farthest reaches of the Deepest Oceans. They seldom (if ever) come to the surface or have any contact with land dwelling creatures, although they do sometimes spend time among with the Sea-Elves.'
Deep Drakes are very large, even among dragons and while few have been seen by living beings, legends of the Deep Drake are known far and wide (especially among fisher folk and sailors).'
The Deep Drake's scales are a dark royal blue with markings and highlights of verdant green. They glitter and move through the water with a speed and grace unmatched by any other creature. Deep Drakes are generally good natured and have been known to rescue sea vessels and marooned sailors when possible. Among the creatures of the sea, the Deep Drake rules as master and in it's natural element there are none to rival it.
This Dragon's favorite elements are: Blue Diamonds, Pearls, and Sapphires
Something to ruminate upon while I continue my research.
