    [x] Make Houses exclusive communities with a strictly regulated number of members, based on the number of "points" that House has earned.

The slot of the exiled member cannot be filled until the end of the Year to underline the importance of such decision.

Any matters of conflict, like bias among teachers, the lack of commitment of school resourses towards the House privileges, unfair exiles initiated by Faculty, etc. - can be addressed to the Council of Directors by the student body. There may or may not be Student self - organization structure, i.e. Prefects (starting from Year 3), but it all depends on the number of students attending.

    Um. Well, I just like the idea of Houses? I admit that I skimmed the organization of Durmstrang, so I remember almost nothing of it; not sure how much of it is similar.

    [X] Exploring the castle grounds, wherever it chooses
    [X] Grooming the Dodo

    Learning to groom our beloved dodo is a must. She shall not look like some farmgirl..ah farmdodo. And it is time to explore.

    Let's extend the reaches of our bird's unhealthy stealing habits.

    As it turns out, the first step to getting his dodo groomed is to go to the Hogwarts library, where the boy was able to find a copy of You and Your Owl (sadly, there were no books on caring for Diricrawl, or at least, none that anyone had bothered to stock). Said tome contained valuable information on things like what birds did to take care of themselves (preening), as well as what he needed to do to take care of a bird - namely, trim the wings to keep them even, as well as bathing them.

    'Though it seems like birds can just bathe themselves if you give them a bowl of water...I didn't know they had to be air-dried though, without magic.'

    Granted, this covered owl care, and not diricrawl care, but he imagined the principles had to be similar.

    Though...

    What do I call the dodo?

    [ ] Owl
    [ ] Bird
    [ ] Kweh
    [ ] (Write-in a name)




    Ronald Weasley seems interested in tagging along - apparently, his niffler needs the exercise. Will you let him come along?

    [ ] Yes
    [ ] No




    Keep working on the Hogwarts House stuff.

    [x] Lupin (the Fourth)

    A fitting name an elegant noble thief. Our girl fits the bill. Has benefit of staying true to our character Japanese roots, while being recognizable to some of his peers thanks to the original source material.

    [x] No

    No normies during our time with Dodo. The Red Menace will surely distract us from Lupin's magnificence, and that's just unacceptable.

    [x] Yes.

    If it was just Ron, I would tell him to fuck off but the niffler can become useful for us. Have it bond with the Dodo so our bird can sometimes snatch (and bring to us) a couple of baubles from stuff it has hoarded around the school. Yes, it's totally manipulative, selfish and greedy but we have debts to pay. We shall have the funds for it, one way or another.

    nvm, discord finally allows me to join.

    With regards to the History assignment, let me try to make things a little easier...let's ask some questions.

    Do you believe the status quo works?

    [ ] Yes
    [ ] No

    If not, what do you see the houses becoming?

    [ ] Reducing them to glorified dorms
    [ ] Places for the elites of Hogwarts
