The Pink Terror as Delores Umbridge, the newly appointed High Inquisitor of Hogwarts school of Witchcraft and Wizardry, came to be called, entered the room that was used to teach muggle studies. Professor Serena Jones, who had come to teach the class while Professor Charity Burbage was learning what muggle studies was like at Lady Agatha’s school in Salem, Massachusettes, U.S.A., was currently showing the class a muggle cartoon called “Frozen” as an example of how the American witches, called emotion channelers by those of you that we refer to (pointing an arc around the classroom and stopping with her finger pointing at Umbridge), as wand channelers, help their children learn how to control their naturally empathic natures.

Umbridge looking down her nose, was feverishly scribbling on her clipboard, while Professor Jones carried on as if she weren’t there at all.

All witches and wizards … and yes, even muggles are innately telepathic to one degree or another. Those you refer to as muggles simply have never study or usually don’t even acknowledge the existence of magic. Pointing at the screen where the movie continued to play, “the actors in movies usually portray their characters with enough emotions for those unpracticed in a magical art called occlumency” she intoned, “ that without the filters used in this world would knock you on your… uh hmmm…” she fake a cough into her fist,” “bum, she said trying to use a polite euphemism

Standing over Professor Jones, hoping to look intimidating, was Delores Umbridge, she looked on the  Professor as she assigned the class to write 10 pages of parchment on the differences between what they felt watching this “Muggle”film differed from any they chose to watch from this wizarding world that they were currently living in. The students seeing Umbridge headed for their new and very much liked Professor, loitered nearby to hear what was coming.

Delores Umbridge asked for an example of what the emotions coming from the screen could do if not controlled.

“That”, started the Professor,  in as much a controlled tone as she could muster, “would require a film that they nor you are ready for….and you”, she went on trying to keep her tone even and her temper in check ,” I wouldn’t mind doing that to”,  letting her father’s temper  finally get the better of her as she turned quickly with her hair flying and stormed off.
