Summary: It starts as a ridiculous, mostly fallacious student rumor: Filch flirting with Madam Pince in the Restricted Section. To the sex-crazed fifth years, no doubt, even the most civil conversation looks like a front for a torrid affair… not that anyone would want to imagine the dried-up librarian and the jowly grouch of a caretaker, well, doing it. Ew.
But when the rumor reaches the teachers’ lounge, closet romantics Minerva McGonagall and Charity Burbage can’t help formulating a plan. It’s about time those two got some, and they intend to make it happen. With a little help from the writings of one William Shakespeare (a very intelligent Muggle indeed) and some bribing of the castle paintings, they set out to make two people – a man in love with his cat and a woman in love with her books – fall in love with each other…
…just in time for the Yule Ball.

Summary: This is a poem I wrote originally to describe my experience at Universal's Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park in Orlando, Florida during Infinitus 2010. Through my creative writing course in college (for my English major), I received some comments about it and made the poem towards my experience of the series & the fandom. As soon as I registered for Alohomora, I noticed there was a section for submissions and my first thought was to share this poem.
