The year was December 30th, 1937.
A young boy lay awake in his bed with his deep hazel eyes piercing the dark, watching the clock that read 11:58PM very intently. With his fingers interlocked and crossed over his stomach he tapped his feet to the sound of the second hand against the lower bar of the bed frame. “Almost there” thought the boy, as a slight grin shot across his face.
The next minute ticked by and the boy became more restless. He shifted in his bed to his side and picked up a black piece of chalk that had been tucked away and placed at his side. The boy continued to …
In a recent discovery a modern-day Heir of Slytherin has been identified. The once magical Seidel family, who has been in hiding from the wizarding world for the last three generations have identified their daughter, Colleen, as a pure blooded witch from the lineage of Salazar Slytherin. To confirm the assertions we were able to catch up with Minister of Magic who….

In a series of unprecedented events, one right after another, the Department of Mysteries and The Department of Magical Creatures have undergone a joint collaboration to understand what the muggle world has identified as COVID19.
Interestingly enough, not a single Wizard or Witch has been known to contract what the World Health Organization has deemed a “Public Health Emergency of International Concern”. Regardless of it not affecting the magical community, the department of International Magical….Read More…

Christmas Eve is a big day for the western world – for both Wizard, Witch and Muggle alike.
This Christmas Eve a performer of the magical arts, also known as a “magician” to muggles, by the name of Ryland Silverthorne has caught the attention of The Department of Magical Accidents and Catastrophes for revealing how…..

It’s not uncommon in the muggle world to hear about bank robberies – but it is unusual that you would hear about Muggles trying to rob Wizarding Banks.
For the first time in history, a muggle-man was reported to have marched into Gringotts Bank in Diagon Alley at approximately 11am waving around a black wand that was described to project pieces of elemental lead, also known to Muggles as a gun.
While no one was hurt during the transgression, the question looms – how exactly did…

Yesterday morning a large gap was discovered in the centre of Diagon Alley, exactly where ‘Olivanders’ wand shop resides. It was discovered that the entire building had been transported across to a primarily muggle area of London.
It is thought to be caused by a young trainee Auror. The Ministry of Magic has thus far refused to give a name for the young trainee, but have claimed that the proper repercussions will follow his “unfortunate mistake”. There is currently an ongoing investigation into what happened to the young Aurors original wand, and it looks like he won’t be getting a new one any time soon.
Minister Granger had this to say on the matter, “Although this is a…Read More…

As the uneasy fog drifted across London early this morning, news toiled in regarding the deaths of six more Witches and Wizards in Knockturn Alley.
The scene was evocative of the same black magic used days before Halloween late last year. Similar to the attack on October 26th, all victims were found with the same distinct dark mark branded into their skulls and their bodies nearly unidentifiable. (According to a source at St. Mungo’s, they have been working diligently to identify the bodies and will notify the families shortly.)
While there was a brief hiatus in the number of Dark Magic related arrests directly following the….

Delightful chaos: that’s how Minister Hermione Granger describes the responsibilities of the Ministry’s department of Magical Accidents and Catastrophes.
From a kelpie, who was mistakenly labeled the Loch Ness monster of Ireland in 1933, to the “sleeping pattern adjustment” of thousands of owls as news spread of Voldemort’s defeat, and even through multiple sightings of Yeti’s in Tibet, the last century alone has been a wild ride for the world’s magical concealment officials.
The Daily Prophet holds the stance that chaotic is an apt description of the department–not delightful!
