last paragraph in Nil Desperandum ch titled Never Say Die:

The hall was in uproar as Professor Trelawney leapt to her feet, crying of terrible things and made a lolloping run for the door before anything worse could happen to her. Hope grabbed her wand and muttered a quick spell under her breath. She'd once learnt it from one of Dad's books and had used it every now and then to torment her brother. A dark puff of cloud broke away from the enchanted ceiling and drifted after the Divination teacher, beginning a light drizzle of rain on top of her as they passed into the corridor beyond.

Whoops - I thought I'd got them all as well. That'll teach me not to read my own fics. Thank you smile.gif

It'll probably be out sometime in August, after I get 'A Pensieve Affair' finished up. I'll see how it goes, because I'll be writing an original as well, so I might take August off fanfic and get back to it in September. Will keep you posted.

Nil Desperandum means 'don't despair' - in other words 'don't give up hope' - which is a bit of a pun on Hope's name!

Harry's job is a little complicated. To all intents and purposes he plays as Seeker for the Montrose Magpies (hence Hope's supporting of them in 'A Pensieve Affair'), but there's actually a fair bit of undercover work he does for the Ministry as an Auror.

I never really pegged down Ron's job properly. Ron taught flying/Quidditch for a while after Madam Hooch died, but no longer does that. Hermione now runs the Magical Creatures department in the Ministry and has made a huge difference to their rights and the way people regard them. Ginny writes, novels and occasonal Prophet/Witch Weekly articles, but because she does that from home it's a mostly 'invisible' sort of job. I don't think it's made it into any of the stories.
