Quiz #4 Complete

Our last quiz was a "Mad Libs" type story. I posted my answers this week, and now we get to see how they fit into Lavender's story:

Professor Moody was having a terrible morning, and it wasn't even breakfast yet. Someone broke into the Herbology classroom the night before, hid a Boggart in the closet, and set loose 733 doxies. How did he know there were 733 doxies? Because each one took a bite out of his hand as he tried to capture it, and Madame Pomfrey had to run each wound separately. And comment annoyingly about how Professor McGonagall would've had the room cleared out with 2 waves of a wand.

It took forever to get out of the infirmary, and by then Professor Moody was in a foul mood. Luckily, he knew how to improve it: by finding the culprits and making him, her or them pay. Moody had overheard some students giggling in the hallways the other day about Selena's stash of doxy eggs, so he had a good idea of who to interrogate first. Unfortunately for him, but rather fortunately for Selena, the common room password had recently been changed to "Chudley Cannons", so Moody couldn't enter. Sir Cadogan looked up from his portrait and laughed at the cursing, frustrated Professor.

The old Professor Moody would have thrown a hissy fit at being taunted by a mere portrait, and blasted the thing all the way into the 9th floor girl's bathroom. The new Professor Moody went to 11 weeks of Anger Management classes, punched a lot of pillows, and took up needlepoint. And started subscribing to the Weasley's Wizarding Wheezes catalogue.

Professor Moody's first class off the day was Herbology with the 3rd year Hufflepuffs and Ravenclaw. It took them 2 hours to clean up after the entire carton of Fanged Frisbees that went off and clung to their robes, schoolbooks, and any exposed flesh. The students all knew that Selena was planning to do something in Herbology to get Professor Moody, so everyone blamed her for the prank and gave her the cold shoulder for 17 days, until Ophelia Hopkirk blew up the Defense Against the Dark Arts classroom with a misplaced charm and became the new pariah-of-the-hour.
