The HP Class

Today was the last regular day of class. (Their Final is Tuesday.) I really felt sad as they all packed up their bookbags. I am gonna miss these students. We had fun, especially today. The lecture (ooh I shouldn't even use that word!!) topic was "fandom". We had a massive discussion ranging from Potter Puppet Pals tap here through cosplay and right on into a discussion of Book 7 and Neville's character arc; but dear one now is the time of the reckoning. I must start adding up their scores so I can get their grades in right after reading the exams. They were a great bunch of kids. I haven't ever been this sad at the end of a course.

I wonder if I'll feel this somber at the end of Fall term when I have this same course back to back?
