HPKCHC Spring2010 AncientRunes

Dear Professor,

Silverwing26 of Ravenclaw turning in her Ancient Runes assignment. Naturally being a Ravenclaw I was eager to begin studying. I creaked open “Magical Mysteries Resolved: Interpreting your Runes 2nd edition” to begin reading. Naturally, I got a paper cut the moment I opened the book. I scanned briefly over all of the descriptions and meanings. With my nose jammed in the book, I wasn’t watching where I was going and tripped right over my Fabulous Twin boppingbeth while she was busy studying.

Just then, our Head of House drew our attention to a magical door that had appeared in the common room! It caused such a flurry of excitement that I momentarily forgot about my studies. There was a lot of chatter about how we might get such a mysterious door OPEN!

Of course we tried Alohamora… and for some reason my wand backfired and I got a nasty sting in my hand. Thinking it might have been an odd sort of boggart that took the form of an unsolvable riddle, I tried Ridikkulus!! But It sort of rebounded and I got a nasty headache.

Well I gave up and went back to my studies. My eyes fell on the rune Algiz.

Algiz - Protection, a shield. The protective urge to shelter oneself or others. Defense, warding off of evil, shield, guardian. Connection with the gods, awakening, higher life. It can be used to channel energies appropriately. Follow your instincts. Keep hold of success or maintain a position won or earned. Algiz Reversed: or Merkstave: Hidden danger, consumption by divine forces, loss of divine link. Taboo, warning, turning away, that which repels.

With the luck I had been having, and this new adventure of trying to get this mysterious door open, I decided THIS was the rune for me. So I whipped out my wand and embedded the rune over and over and over again into my headband.
