I gave Trinculus a note today about prefects being able to Crusiate us students. It said

I think that prefects should not be able to Crusiate students because it is a very strong punishment. Prefects can take away house points but they cant give you detention, because they aren't teachers and so they might be unfair. Sometimes Cruciatus is a good way to punish somebody because then they won't mess up again, but it also hurts alot. So teachers should be the only ones allowed to Crusiate students.

I wanted to put this in my journal so that everybody knows my opinion about it. Some of the Huff lot were saying that Slytherins were mean and just wanted to go around Crusiating everybody but that isn't true because I don't and I bet other Slytherins don't either.

At the Prefects' regular meeting this week, one of the subjects touched upon was a certain incident which took place during the first year Hufflepuff Transfiguration class on Wednesday, involving the administration of the Cruciatus Curse. This led in turn to a rather wide-ranging discussion amongst the Prefects about school discipline in general, and in particular, the role which the Prefects and especially the Head Boy and Head Girl should take in helping maintain proper school order and discipline.

The various House Prefects, Head Boy, and Head Girl are all chosen by the Headmistress and staff to serve as proper examples for the rest of the student body, and to provide leadership when needed. In certain situations, when staff are not present, we are authorised to act as proxy for certain school functions, i.e., directing students in an emergency, docking school points for infractions of school rules, etc.

As the older students are undoubtedly aware, the notion has been periodically raised that in order to help maintain order, the Head Boy and Head Girl should be authorised (as the school Professors are) to administer the Cruciatus Curse when necessary to enforce adherence to the school Code of Conduct. Needless to say, we would expect this authority to be invoked on only very rare occasions. It has been rather a point of vexation for the Prefects that this subject seems to keep coming up each year without ever being quite settled. Consequently, the Head Boy Ned Pennifold and the Head Girl Susan Yaxley have decided to hold a formal debate on the issue, leading to an up and down vote amongst the prefects to settle the question, once and for all.

The resolution shall read: Be it RESOLVED: That the Head Boy and Head Girl of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry are authorised to administer the Cruciatus Curse to students when necessary to enforce the student Code of Conduct.

Two prefects will present the case for each side. Xi Chang (Ravenclaw) and Serena Laverty (Slytherin) shall argue for the affirmative. Heidi MacAvoy (Hufflepuff) and I have volunteered to argue for the negative. This debate shall take place at the prefects' meeting a week from this coming Wednesday. You are invited to offer your comments on the Resolution to your House prefects, who will in turn pass these comments along to the two sides arguing the question. Please give the matter your careful consideration and let your voice be heard. We will consider your input to be crucial in helping us to finally resolve this important issue.

Hermione, I've not been frightened like that in a long time. Do not ever, ever go off on your own again, do you understand me? I do not normally support punishments for mistakes, but I want you to wear that amulet without fail. It's for your own protection.

I am pleased that this week has ended. Perhaps things may go back to whatever passes for normal, around here. Hopefully, Voldemort the Lord Protector has had his fill of Hogwarts and won't be calling by again for some time.

My apologies for having been remiss in correspondence. I've been recovering, and not in the mood for chatter. I'm a bit better now.

Myrtle, the toilets will be repaired as soon as possible. I've still got to dispose of that troll.

Professor McGonagall, I think there's something dangerous on the 3rd floor. It nearly ate me. And also Harry Marvolo. I know that it doesn't matter if it eats me, but it does matter if it eats Harry, so maybe someone ought to do something about it!

Also, I know that you had to punish me but I don't think that it's fair. I'm really, really hungry.

I was just laying in my pipe when I heard the door close and then I heard crying. I came up out of the pipe and peeked through the stall door and saw Hermione crying. Then she took a toothbrush out of her pocket and started to scrub the toilets. What's going on? And what a silly thing to use to clean the toilet.

And I hope she doesn't use it to clean her teeth afterwards.

You have displeased me very much. Your behavior does not befit your station.
  1. Remove yourself from the library. You must now sleep in the hallway outside the Great Hall, by the statue of Leofrick the Loser.
  2. Present yourself in front of the entrance to my office for the words "FILTHY MUDBLOOD" to be applied to your forehead.
  3. You will, for the next month, be restricted to bread and water.
  4. Your duties will now consist of serving at the Head Table and, in the meantime, cleaning every girls' toilet in the castle with a toothbrush.

Miss Granger, I cannot tell you how much I regret the necessity of what I am about to do.

They will be serving detention with Professor Sprout for the next three days, in hopes that closer acquaintance with mud will cool their enthusiasm for it.

Granger has been spoken to about associating with students.
