    "Weasley, Ronald!"

    "I can do this, I can do this", I thought as I walked into the Great Hall. My mouth dropped. "Okay, maybe I can't do this." "Weasley", McGonnagal said sternly, "You can go over to professor MarshBanks, she's free", she said, pointing to an old witch. Smirking, I quietly went over to her. She wasn't a pretty nice lady, but she was better than Tofty, Harry's person.

    It wasn't as bad as I though actually. First, she asked me a whole bunch of questions. After the 55th question she let me do magic. Finally! First I was supposed to turn a animal into a cup. Easy, "Feraverto!" Then I was supposed to make a animal turn into a pillow. But when Marshbanks tried it out, she cried out in pain. Guess what, the spicked coloured tail was still there. At least I wasn't Hannah Abbot though. Long story, back to mine.

    Then I messed up on other spells, but finally a got a question right. Do a levitating charm. If I could do it in my first year, I could do it now. But after that, the exam was cancelled for 10 minutes because of Hannah.

    So I practiced my animal turning into a pillow spell.

    Title: Too busy studying

    “Sirius Black if you don’t get away from me, I’m going to curse you into oblivion!” shouted Lily Evans.

    “Merlin, they all get so edgy around exam time,” muttered Sirius sitting down at the fireplace with James.

    The two sat by the fire in whispers as their fellow students sat all around them studying for their upcoming exams. Sirius and James seemed unperturbed by the fact that they had not yet opened a book, and their NEWTs started in only two days.

    Finally, after half an hour of deep conversation, and planning James stood with a mischievous grin. He slowly took two steps forward towards the undisturbed studiers.

    “James Potter if you take one step closer you’re going to wish you were never born!” hissed Lily Evans from her seat three feet away from James.

    With a flick of his wand the room went white, including Lily’s robes whose white color seemed to glow. Her pencil was transformed into a beautiful bouquet of flowers, and James’s own school robes, had transformed into dress robes.

    Lily’s scowl turned into a badly concealed smile as James knelt down in front of her.

    “Lily Evans will you marry me?” whispered James.

    “Not today dear, ask me again later, I’m studying,” Lily bent down and kissed her boyfriend on the lips before returning to her notes.

    Title: Hermione's Experience in Examination
    Warnings: None
    Words: 284

    Hermione perched herself nervously on the edge of her seat. She had studied for hours, there was no way she could fail these tests. Every textbook memorized practically word for word, every wand movement she could do in her sleep, every potion ingredient could be easily identified. Then why was she so nervous?

    She stuck in end of her quill into her mouth as she glimpsed at the students around her. One girl was as pale as Nearly Headless Nick, another was shaking so much her chair rattled against the stone floor. Hermione wasn’t the only one with pre-exam jitters. They only affected your whole life, after all.

    Finally the tests were distributed, and time started. Hermione peered at the first question and steadied her quill to begin.

    “What skill allows wizards to transform into an animal?” Hermione smiled and scribbled a long, detailed answer that included the fact that it is illegal to be an unregistered animungus. She knew all too well what can happen when some one abuses this magical attribute.

    “What creature can help revive those who have been petrified?” She shuddered a bit as she remembered the last few moments before being petrified herself. And she also remembered the creature she’d helped replant in herbology that revitalized her. She wrote an in-depth paragraph about mandrakes.

    “What potion, if drank, allows you to take on the physical appearance of another human?” Hermione had to shake her head at the word human. It works if you use cat hair as well. Yet another well-informed answer went down on the page.

    Hermione laughed to herself. I wouldn’t have stressed out so much if I new this was going to be a practical exam!

    Title: S is for Super

    Seven hours. ONLY seven hours. Four hundred and twenty minutes. 25,200 seconds.

    Exams, in seven hours, Hermione thought feverishly. NEWTS. It could decide your entire career forever, your enter life.

    Just breathe, Hermione, she thought to herself. Calm down.

    It wasn’t working. Alright, Hermione, what do we do when we’re stressed? We simply dissect it into something smaller, less scary, she thought to herself. NEWTS, is a pretty big, impressive word, isn’t it?

    Yes, it is, she answered herself. But N isn’t so big, is it? No, not at all, she decided. It’s just a letter. Only the fourteenth letter of the alphabet, right? Yes. And if you times fourteen by two and subtracted seven, it equaled her lucky number, twenty-one. A bit of a stretch, perhaps, but there was no denying the facts. Fourteen times two minus seven is twenty-one. See? I’m a smart witch, she thought smugly.

    Onto E, she thought, determined. Alright…E. E is for Exceeds Expectations, right? It was a sign! She would succeed! It was foolproof!

    See, this isn’t so bad, Hermione thought cheerily to herself. Now, onto W. W is for wonderful, right? And…and…she thought desperately to herself. It’s the twenty-third letter in the alphabet. Two plus three equals five. And five…well, never mind, she thought, dismissing it.

    Alright, onto T…T is for terrific! Of course it’s also for terrible, but I won’t think about that, she thought. And T is the twentieth letter of the alphabet! Only one away from her lucky number!

    Last letter! Hermione thought triumphantly. S…S is for superb! And splendid! And super! There was no possible way she could fail! Not the slightest chance, not the tiniest hint…nothing!

    “Hey Hermione, are you studying for the test? Guess what I figured out, NEWTS equals Nasty Evil Worrisome Sordid exams!” Ron shouted excitedly across the room.

    Hermione fell out of her chair in panic.

    Title: In the Mind of Draco Malfoy
    Warnings: None
    Words: 257

    In the mind of Draco Malfoy, there was nothing as peaceful as studying. Every Christmas, he would settle into his dark room and tell his parents that he had an important exam coming up right after the holidays. This way, he got an excuse to be alone, to think about the things that weren’t imperative in his life. He spent the whole break studying the different effects of a werewolf’s bite, or the ingredients in the Polyjuice Potion, and just blessed the day studying was invented.

    This year was especially important, since the NEWT’s were coming about, closer and closer. Although he was having no problem with any of his classes, he told Lucius that he needed to review many lessons, and that he simply wouldn’t have time to do any other thing. This gave him more time to exercise something that he hoped would be occurring more and more as time passed by: spending time away from his family.

    He also had another incentive to study: he wanted to be the best. Doing well wasn’t going to be good enough if there was someone ahead of him. Indeed, he wouldn’t be able to stand it if that Granger got ahead of him at something – nay, anything. The Golden Trio was always seen as the heroic group of the story, while he, Malfoy, was always the malicious villain. He needed something to get back at them for all that time, and that something was getting not good, but the best, marks.

    The exams would be a breeze.
