The school stood long before the boy with the unusual scar arrived. Each year new students enter, and old leave. 1835 featured its own triumphs and tragedies as students in the houses contend with each other for recognition as the best house at Hogwarts.
The captain of the Slytherin quidditch team, seventh year Elizabeth Gray, would desperately love to have her team win the quidditch cup. Of course so would her cousin Robert Fletcher, captain of the Hufflepuff team, and Charles Potter of Gryffindor. Meanwhile Rose Fowler, fourth year Ravenclaw captain, may have stolen the lead on all three of the seventh year captains.
Behind the inner-house loyalties and intra-house rivalries which are the focus of the 1835-36 school year the Board of Governors quarrels over possible changes to the school in the face of the rapid changes Britain experienced during the Industrial Revolution.
Many family names will sound familiar in the large cast of characters, but don't allow your knowledge of their descendants almost two centuries later to color your opinion of their ancestors. Some of the school's traditions will be familiar and others will have disappeared by the time of the canon series. And while a working knowledge of Jane Austen is not required to read this story it will make the flow and tone of Hogwarts 1835 easier to understand.
