A raft Victoria Falls Zimbabwe 18th February
My dear Luna,
I canít write a long letter as Iím about to test the theory that singing God Save the Queen while coursing down the Victoria Falls will double your bank account in three months and six days. I apologise if some of this ink is smudged. My raft is approaching the precipice and the water is somewhat turbulent.
I just wanted to say how proud I am that you have been asked to commentate at the next school Quidditch match. Itís a great honour, and Iím sure youíll do an excellent job. Remember the responsibility that accompanies such a task. Those of us who report events must give a fair, objective account that does justice to all parties. The public deserves to hear the truth, even in matters as mundane as Quidditch.
Iíve enclosed a small phial of potion that I find helps me think clearly and express myself well when I sit down to write editorials. Take it ten minutes before the match. Youíll find your words come easily and your listeners will be astounded by your insightful commentary.
Good luck, Luna dear, and enjoy yourself. I wish I could hear it for myself, but Iíll wait for you to tell me how it went.
All my love,
Fa----........ :.... : : .........
A/N: ĎEssence of Insanityí - oh, the potential! Will someone please do this title better justice and give us some truly hilarious fics. For some (insane) reason I think McGonagall should be involved but I canít imagine how - thatís up to you. But whether she is or not, please write it. Now!
