Lionel had never said much about Houses to Amelia directly – Amelia assumed her brother had not wanted to say anything he might have to regret later if Amelia went into that House – but she had picked up a lot of things about them just listening to him talk in general over the holidays of the past few years. Aladren, she had gathered, was a House full of rather severe purebloods of the Society sort, most of whom were also male. That was why it had come as a surprise to Amelia to find her year full of girls and an even bigger one to approach the Quidditch sign-up sheet and see two other girls on it already. Even Aunt Anne had thought the Quidditch team ran too heavily to boys, after all, but here, if exactly seven people signed up, the numbers would be almost equal.

The captain sounded nice just from the way he wrote the sign, though Amelia supposed she could be prejudiced in his favor already just because her godmother had assured her Clark was going to be the ‘right sort’ – Anne had, she’d said, played with this guy’s father, who she still called ‘her’ Seeker when talking about him. Amelia wouldn’t be surprised if she ever found out Anne addressed Mr. Dill’s Christmas cards (Anne, Amelia thought sometimes, knew or knew someone who knew everyone in the world, and she sent Christmas cards to all of them) to ‘my Seeker’ instead of using his real name. That, though, wasn’t for her to know, and she was just glad to at least know one name going in and, after Professor Pye’s speech, that said name wasn’t John. She still had not figured out how people told the prefects apart, since most people seemed to use their first names when talking to or about each other….

Kit, she saw, was one of the two girls, just as she’d said. The other was much older, but Amelia thought that might be good – if she was a returning player, she could be like a mentor to Amelia and Kit and they could all have a great time together. Feeling optimistic, Amelia took out a quill and wrote down her details on the list – Amelia Layne, 1st, Any.
