Not sure why I didn't join sooner.

Daniel had grown a lot over the past year and that was particularly noticeable after a summer away from Sonora, during which heíd had to get the new school robes his extended frame was desperately in need of. Not only did the physical changes make him feel much less of a kid but he thought he was maturing a great deal, not that he hadnít been mature before of course. Dan had always been an odd mix of seriousness and fun and that probably wasnít going to change completely. He still felt dwarfed by Chuck but at this rate he doubted that would forever be the case, although his cousin had a lot of bulk that he hoped never to have.

There were little things that he thought and did that made him feel so much more grown up entering his third year. One thing was for certain, he now had a crush on a girl who wasnít some three years his senior and hopefully that meant something might come of it. Whilst he still held the same great admiration and respect for the beautiful redhead, Dan felt himself growing out of it. He was beginning to experience real feelings (or rather, realistic feelings) for another girl and hence he hadnít put Makenzie as ďbest lookingĒ in the yearbook at the end of last term. No one could possibly find out who heíd voted for in such a category of course and to most people that section probably didnít mean anything, but to him writing a certain name down on the parchment had been the pinnacle moment of admitting his new crush.

Academically speaking, he was so ready to be an Intermediate student, and that wasnít just because of who would be in his classes. But there was something about his thought process in the lead up to signing up again for Quidditch that had lead him to realise that maybe he was ready for something new in his school life: responsibility.

Dan always spent a lot of time in the library. It was filled with all kinds of books that were great sources of knowledge for his studies, because being studious was what intelligence was really all about. And sometimes it was nice to be sociable whilst one studied so the library was a great place for meeting up to work with other people. He had his lonely dormitory for the more serious thought-consuming of homework.

There were a lot of people already signed up for library duties but that didnít put Dan off since he knew there were plenty of hours in the week for them all. Spending so much time in library meant he already knew how everything worked pretty much so it wasnít going to be difficult making sure he was a good library assistant. That was the position he settled to go with, even though being an Intermediate now meant he was eligible to apply for the higher role of library monitor. It certainly wasnít because he lacked ambition in any way but because he knew to be realistic.

Daniel Fintoc, 3rd year, Library Assistant

Daniel signed his name neatly and smiled. He was going to be a library assistant and even if it was only a fairly small responsibility to have, it felt nice and he was suddenly very keen to get started.
