It was a happy moment when both I and my twin sister, Devanshi Batman, received Hogwarts acceptance letters! We arrived at Hogwarts on an August evening of 1963. Apparently, it was Albus Dumbledore during his travels across Asia as a part of the Wizengamot, who invited the Batman family to send their children to study at Hogwarts, to promote Indo-British peace. So here we were, two little 11 year olds from a faraway land. The Sorting Hat had considered sorting me in Slytherin, but I asked to be sorted in Ravenclaw instead. I felt like I just belonged in this House. My sister was more of an obvious choice for Ravenclaw, she said the Hat didn’t even bother contemplating. We were put in dorms of 5 each, which we are told can be expanded since a lot of new students were expected to arrive from all over the world. I was assigned the dorm leader of #15,991. There were two other American guys, Aaron and Simon, and a British girl named Iona Fleming…
It’s been 50 years since that day. This dorm has seen a few generations come and go. A lot seems to have changed, while a lot more has remained unchanged. The dorm now holds 42 first years, and is called “The League of 42”. Well, that’s another story for another day. The kids have been nice to me, even though it’s awkward for them to have a ghost floating around their dorm. There’s a girl called Cristy. She’s a Prefect. She seems pretty nice, she helps everyone and tells them jokes. Sweet kid. Enough for now. Let me go spook some unsuspecting first year in the Great Hall… Later.
Update (9 August 2014): So I came across a report from the Fussy and Gossipy Witch Club (#28,082).
“For the first week of Person of the Week… He is NOVELLUS BATMAN ♛. Because every one knows him, but more importantly, he is an amazing person. He is dedicated, loyal, and the best friend anyone could ask for. He listens to anyone that needs to talk and doesn’t judge. He accepts everyone with no conditions. He is fair with everything. He is funny and smart and one of the most amazing people on HiH. You couldn’t find a better person. He is great with people and most everyone will listen to him and what he has to say. He has a way with words that makes you feel important and that he understands.”
I don’t know who wrote this, but thank you! This is so sweet, it made my day!
