8:47 am - Podlet
Excited that you get to leave Hogwarts and go somewhere other than Hogsmeade, you step up to McGonagall's office fireplace and step in. Like the students who had their turns before you, you throw down the Floo Powder and clearly state "Ministry of Magic, Atrium." In a whirl of ash, you are quickly shot through a series of fireplaces until finally, sick to your stomach, you shoot out into the Atrium of the Ministry.
It is a beautiful stretch of space lined on either side by fireplaces. Taking a look around, you see the Fountain of Magical Brethren that you heard about in your History of Magic class and down at the far end, you see the lifts that will take you to the different levels. Several students are milling about and, finding your friends, you get into a discussion about the things you are bound to see today.
Hufflepuff invites you to a Field Trip to the Ministry of Magic. Fascinating contests, Great Prizes and a good time to be had by all! Just click on the Fountain of Magical Brethren and away you go!
