Professor Liam Ammon
New Zealand booth meeting
Thu Jan 5, 2017 15:44

As a new professor, Liam tried to be as involved with school functions as possible. He wanted to show his peers and students that he was invested in the school, so he showed up at Quidditch matches, offered up his classroom and knowledge whenever it was needed, and happily volunteered to supervise one of the fair booths. His selection initially had been Canada, having grown up there for a good chunk of his adolescence. Canada wasn't exactly culturally diverse enough however, so the Muggle studies professor would have to choose somewhere else.

He wasn't the most well traveled of people, so he didn't have much to draw off of. He also didn't speak any foreign languages, so that didn't help. Instead, his inspiration came from what was easily one of his top 5 movie franchises. It was probably a little lame to base a fair booth off of a country just because you liked a movie that was filmed there, but New Zealand had more to offer than just being Middle Earth. He was glad to see that at least a handful of students also agreed with him. That, or he had just assembled the makings of a Lord of the Rings fanclub at Sonora. Either way, Liam was pleased with himself, and was excited to hear what the students had in store for their booth. He sent out a message to each student who had signed up for his booth, and instructed them to meet him in his Muggle studies classroom.

Using the magic of the internet (a perk of being Muggle born), Professor Ammon had procured a few New Zealand based treats for the meeting. Jaffas, fish shaped chocolate covered marshmallows, pineapple lumps and perky nanas covered a table near the side of the room, and he'd rearranged the desks to form a circle. Once the entire group was present, Liam stood to welcome them.

“Thank you for coming! As you know, this meeting is to figure out what you guys want to do for the fair. Obviously our country is New Zealand, and I think it has some great potential. My job is to kind of oversee this operation, but I'm also here to offer my vast wisdom and guidance if necessary.” Liam said with a smile as he took up his usual position behind his desk and a stack of papers to be graded. “That being said, there are New Zealand themed snacks available for inspiration. I'm excited to see what you guys come up with, so, have at it.”
