Daughter of a Malfoy Chapter 7.5About a week after Winter Break had ended, Professor F kept me and Will after class. “It’ll just be for a few minutes,” he promised. “I just have an offer to convey to you two, from Rose.” It felt odd that he did not call the other teachers ‘Professor’ even in front of students. “Even though neither one of you is in N.E.W.T.-level Charms, she wants to know if you’d like to attend her class for the next few weeks, to learn the Patronus Charm.”Daughter of a Malfoy Chapter 7.5 by froggy21997
I nodded excitedly and gave my immediate, “Yes!”
“Sure,” Will answered almost as eagerly, “but why?”
That was a very good question: why would Mum offer to teach us advanced Charms magic when neither of us had scored high enough on our Charms O.W.L.s? Actually, I did not know whether Will had gotten the required Exceeds Expectations score. I had just assumed that he would have taken every class he qualified for.
Professor F leaned against his desk.
Daughter of a Malfoy Chapter 7.4During late November and through December, the universities that Will and I had applied to sent in their responses. Out of the five that I had applied to, I was accepted into three of them. It felt pretty bad to receive rejection notes from the other two schools, but Professor F reassured me that most people did not get into every school they applied to. But the most upsetting part was that one of the two universities that rejected me was one of the places that both Will and I had applied to. Now there was only one place we had in common.

Since both of us were staying at Hogwarts during Winter Break— the majority of the seventh years were staying for the New Years’ party— Professor F decided that he wanted to have daily meetings with us during the break. The first meeting was with both of us, to remind us about how muggle unive
Daughter of a Malfoy Chapter 7.3At the start of October, I began to feel a lot of stress. Not because of my N.E.W.T. level homework, not because of the N.E.W.T. examinations I would have to take at the end of the year, and not because of the violin duet I had with Will for the Halloween concert. It was because I had to prepare my applications to muggle universities in the United States. The deadline for the optimal time to submit applications was the first of November.Daughter of a Malfoy Chapter 7.3 by froggy21997
I discovered that Will had to do the same, so we talked about it a lot. We spent a lot of time working with Professor F to find the best schools for each of us. Will had no trouble narrowing down his options to three schools because he had a specific goal: to become an astronaut. For me, it was an entirely different story. Given my undecided ‘major’ subject of study, I had to go somewhere where there were a lot of options. I also put in my preference for location— I did not want to go to a school where it snowed in September, i
