He became a full-time in-house announcer for NBC in 1944, and he served as announcer for shows like X Minus One and the William Gargan mystery drama Barrie Craig, Confidential Investigator.

The story of how Harry Potter single-handedly lost Gryffindor the House Cup while attempting to have a “normal” year at Hogwarts. Featuring Harry’s suspicious nature turned up to eleven again, a new DADA teacher who is so not here for Harry’s fame, multiple detentions, Slytherins being sneaky, Hufflepuffs being sneakier, and the mystery of Draco Malfoy’s hoodie.

_______

Apparently I accidentally deleted this rec or something, so here you have it again because this is hilarious. 

Well-written, lovely characterizations, I loved the new DADA teacher who is just so done with these two. Harry’s theories about Draco’s sweater are ridiculous. Also you don’t wanna miss out on drunk!Harry! Please read, you’ll love it!
