    Oh my gosh... I had so much fun! .^_^.
    A HUGE thank you to the volunteers and organizers of this event. It made my heart so very happy today. The guest professor was great also and of course all of the fellow students (attendees).
    Well done, everyone. <3
    I'm going to upload all my pictures tonight after class to share here. Did anyone take any Slytherin pictures of the group or of the play. I was a Slyth so I wasn't able to take any :)
