In this month, where wishes and dreams run wild during our holiday celebrations, your task is to select any Hogwarts Professor and reveal to us (in 150 words or less) what they would see if they chanced to look into the Mirror of Erised. Use your imagination and try to capture that Professor’s essence as best you can. Mail your submission to the contest to by 11:59 pm (EDT) on 31 December, with "Mirror of Erised" in the subject line of the e-mail. The winner will receive a handcrafted wand from Wizard Wood Wands and The Practitioners Guide to Wand Magic by William C. Wilson.

Go here for additional rules and FAQ. Best of luck to everyone who enters!

That really is a great topic! But I find the word limits on your contests so frustrating! >.<

Good idea but I think just a Professor is too much of a restriction. I mean you know nearly everyone will do Snape. Even search up “Mirror of Erised” in Google images and it will show quite a few Snape and Lily images. I think I might enter this and if I do I’m doing any other professor than Snape because I want to be original :)

Also Dumbledore’s reflection shouldn’t be allowed because everyone knows what he would see anyway.

professor Snape sees himself as he is maybe some trendy clothes standing arm in arm with Lily and their son Harry in front of them with Harry Looking like Snape and not James. James is pinned to the wall behind them dead.

Professor McGonagall
Professor mcGonagall is sitting on her porch on the farm of her first love who knows she is a witch and he loves her for it. The world is open to magical people and She didn’t have to say no to his proposal.

Please do not post ideas for entries or entries themselves in the comments or in the lounge. Instead, please email your entry to with “Mirror of Erised” in the subject line of the e-mail. This protects your idea so that others can not use it, and it helps us keep track of all entries in one place without having to sort through other comments, posts, etc. Thank you!
