Ivan turned and looked at Fred and George, and said “I thought about it, the money earned by the Hogwarts’ Magic newspaper can be used to fund all the students studying magic, and it is my honor to inform both you that you will be my first sponsor so you can advertise your products in the newspaper to bring people joy.”
“Oh, Ivan,” said Fred and George as they looked at him.
“as for you, Hermione, I would like you to be the editor of the newspaper,” said Ivan as he turned and looked at Hermione, who looked like she had been petrified.
“What?” yelled Hermione.
“You will be responsible for the final edit of all articles if you like you can share your homework.”
“No, Ivan!”, Ivan was surprised to see Hermione shook her head in refusal.
“I can’t do that, I mean share my homework, but I’m happy to be the editor of the Hogwarts’ Magic, in fact, I think your idea is fantastic,” said Hermione quickly.
“Yeah, a newspaper that’s completely ours!” said Fred.
“Ivan you are going to go down in Hogwarts History,” said George.
No one of the four students went back to the rooms, they all had a look of excitement on there faces as they discussed things about the newspaper, identifying the main issues.
Due to the lack of manuscripts and the limited Manpower, Hogwarts’ Magic was scheduled for once a week release. It will be divided into ten sections, with news and current affairs covering both basic and in-depth articles on school life, edited by Hermione. As for the source of the news, Ivan will have a few people to collect it, but he decided to rely mostly on the ghosts in the castle.”
The mystery section was given to Fred and George who wanted to introduce Various places, passages, and the secrets of the castle.
The Magical creatures of the forbidden forest section can be given to Hagrid, as for the Quidditch section it can be given to Harry while the Hogwarts a History section can be assigned to Ron.
As for the entertainment section, Ivan decided on Lockhart as the primary target of the school year. He believed that Lockhart should be popular with girls until he is exposed.
As for the Novel and Academic exchange section, it will be open to school teachers and students, and as for the advertising section, it will be handled by Ivan.
Besides Fred and George advertising their magical fireworks Ivan intends to make a trip to Hogsmeade, Ivan believes businesses will be happy to advertise in the newspaper, but first, he has to ensure that Hogwarts’ Magic sells well.
“Hermione, you will be responsible for editing the manuscripts, and if you need help ask Ginny, I will be responsible for communication with others, and finally Fred and George will be responsible for advertising the paper, so if all goes well, a week later we will be able to print our first issue,” concluded Ivan
By the time Ivan returned to his bedroom, it was nearly two o’clock.
Inside the circular room, there were five poster beds decorated with red velvet surrounded by tall windows.
Ivan noticed that his box had been moved when he was getting on his bed but then he saw a boy named Colin in the bed next to his.
He now had a great idea to use Colin as a photographer for the newspaper. And after he thought of some new ideas, he quickly fell asleep.
The next morning when Ivan entered the Great Hall he saw Harry and Ron sitting at the Gryfindor’s table next to Hermione, they were looking down at a piece of paper.
“Hermione, you’ve written an article to condemn us,” said Ron with a surprised tone.
“Morning!” said Ivan
Ivan sat across of the three, in front of him was a bowl of porridge, a plate of pickled herring, a small hill of bread, and a saucer of eggs and bacon.
“Ivan look what Hermione wrote, its an article condemning our drive to school citing several rules of the protection of underage wizards, she suggesting that the school should impose severe punishment on several of us, she is even asking to can the school Quidditch match,” said Ron to Ivan
“Shut up, Ron!” Hermione stiffly said, “It’s just an article I’m going to submit to the Hogwarts’ Magic, calling attention to the safety of underage wizards.”
“Excuse me, what newspaper?” asked Harry.
“It’s the Hogwarts’ Magic,” explained Ivan, “I’m going to finish writing,” said Hermione as she went back to work.
“The truth is …..”
Ivan had just finished explaining to Harry and Ron about the newspaper, and they didn’t have time to comment before they heard a commotion above their heads.
“Hundred of owls came in circling the Great Hall, delivering letters and packages, a big gray owl suddenly landed into Hermione’s kettle, suddenly milk and feathers splashed all over them.
“Errol!” shouted Ron as he pulled the owl out of the kettle.
This is the Weasley family owl, Ivan saw the owl lying on the table with a wet red envelope in his mouth.
He immediately knew what it was, a howler.
Ron hesitated for a moment before stretching out his trembling hand to open the envelope. The next second, Mrs. Weasley’s voice rang out shouting 100 times louder than usual.
Everyone in the Great Hall turned to see who received a Howler, and Ron sank into his chair.
“WHEN WE RECEIVED THE LETTER FROM DUMBLEDORE LAST NIGHT, I THOUGHT YOUR FATHER WOULD DIE OF SHAME, WE DIDN’T BRING YOU UP TO BEHAVE LIKE THIS, YOU, Ivan, and HARRY COULD HAVE DIED. STEALING THE CAR, I WOULDN’T HAVE BEEN SURPRISED IF THEY’D EXPELLED YOU, YOU WAIT TILL I GET HOLD OF YOU, I DON’T SUPPOSE YOU STOPPED TO THINK WHAT YOUR FATHER AND I WENT THROUGH WHEN WE SAW IT WAS GONE”
When Ivan heard his name, he pretended not to hear as he ate his eggs like they were the best thing in the world.
“I’M ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTED — YOUR FATHER’S FACING AN INQUIRY AT WORK, IT’S ENTIRELY YOUR FAULT AND IF YOU PUT ANOTHER TOE OUT OF LINE WE’LL BRING YOU STRAIGHT BACK HOME.”
Soon the roar of Mrs. Weasley ceased.
The Red envelope fell from Ron’s hand to the ground, it burned and curled up into ashes.
Ivan looked up and saw Harry and Ron sitting in the same place as if they had been petrified.
In the Great Hall, several people smiled, and voices began to sound out once more.
