Key & Compass presents:
Mhairie Sioux Escrivain and the Dracula of Hogwarts
by Roger Carbol

Mhairie Sioux Escrivain and the Dracula of Hogwarts is a Z-machine interactive fiction story written with Inform 7 and is © 2016 by Roger Carbol (as "M Grablowsky"). It was a participant in The Neinth annual New Year's Minicomp.

In this short story set in the Harry Potter universe, you play as Mhairie Sioux Escrivain, a normal girl living a normal life in North Dakota who becomes an exchange student at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in England! Your animagus mother, unicorn father, and telepathic fairie-dragon familiar didn't prepare you for anything like this!

This solution is by David Welbourn, and is based on Release 1 of the story.

> 1or2or3. (Dracula suddenly stops on his own.)

> z.

Dracula sees the error of his ways, tells you to kiss everyone to free them, and flies off.

*** You have defeated the Dracula and saved Hogwarts ***

Y'know, if I was writing this story, I'd sit at the head table, take the unicorn to the Yule Ball as my date, sneak into the boys' bathroom, and finally, bite Dracula and become Queen of the Vampires and rule Hogwarts by myself. I'd keep all that kissing at the end, though. That part's fine.
