*L*! I like the voice-activated idea.
Oooo... more questions?
How does a child whose parents are both Muggles end up going to Hogwarts? I think it's Dean who (I just read) has Muggle parents. And how do they know who has wizard powers?
How do they get to Hogwarts (Diagon Alley, the train etc...) or how are witches and wizards born to non-magical types?
When two Muggles love each other very much...
Well, lemme see...how do they know: The same way they knew that magic happened in Harry's house when Dobby smashed the pudding, of course! "How did they know that, doofus?" I'm sure the Ministry of Magical Law Enforcement has a crystal ball or something similar that tells them when an underage witch uses magic. As for SCHOOL, here's what I think: somewhere in Hogwarts itself, since it's Dumbledore that makes contact with the kids (and it would be Dumbledore that would ENCOURAGE the muggle-born kids to come to Hogwarts since I doubt the Ministry, being led by pureblood assholes like Fudge, Malfoy and Umbridge, would be very keen to invite in a load of Mudbloods year after year)is the same sort of crystal ball or a mist or a map that displays Hogwarts 'territory' and when magical types are born, they're pinpointed. When they come of age, they're sent an owl to come to school.
How do they get there: Now, it would only take a little obversation of said kid to determine if she's Muggle-born or not so, if she is, I can see a representative of the school being sent to chaperone that kid to the proper places the way Hagrid did Harry. I wonder if Hagrid chaperoned Hermione, too? She, like Dean, by the way, is also born to Muggle parents and Seamus is half-and-half. (Rumor has it that HE'S the half-blood prince. Er, I dunno.)
Maybe a column's a bad idea.
That's right... I forgot about Hermione.
*G* I still think you should write one!
