Imagine a night in the Common Room
“Harry, Ron, you really should finish your essays,” Hermione reminded the boys for the 3rd time that night. You chuckled as they simply nodded and continued with their game of Exploding Snap.
At your left on the couch, Neville was flipping through his Herbology book, and occasionally he would point something interesting out to you. On your right, Hermione was being a responsible student, working diligently on her essay for Transfiguration. And, of course, behind you, Fred and George were chatting about some of their new pranks as they read your book over your shoulder and George aimlessly played with your hair.
And somewhere near the back of the room, Seamus was attempting to teach a first year boy to turn water into rum. The sudden loud boom of the failed experiment was anticipated by now, and no one even batted an eye as Seamus sighed loudly.
The constant buzzing of the Gryffindor Common room always made it a bit hard to concentrate, but you would never trade these moments for anything in the world. There was nothing better than an evening in Hogwarts.
