Headcanon about Hermione

Hermione always had a lot of homework even without the time turner, and yet still had time to do extra reading, knit elf hats, etc. And I think I know how she did it. I think she invented (or read about and mastered) a spell to just wave her wand over a parchment and writing would appear on the page, from her brain to the paper via the wand. Then she'd spend some extra time reading it through for errors, making edits here and there, and maybe ended up spending a total of a couple hours doing non-reading homework, giving her plenty of time to do other things. But she was always so irritated with Ron (and occasionally Harry) that she never let them in on that secret. Besides which, it's a complicated spell and while Harry might manage it, Ron would struggle with it and get grumpy about not being able to manage it.

It makes sense for her. She would want to spend as much time as possible getting caught up in her knowledge of the wizarding world, since the school doesn't have a Wizard Studies class for the muggle-borns. So naturally the schoolwork, which comes easy as a breeze to her, takes second fiddle to her studies of the wizarding world, meaning she'll take every shortcut she can without cheating, because as she told Ron about copying/cheating, "how will you learn?"

Though I suspect it was a spell that already existed, and here's why: the Prime Minister's remark about Kingsley, saying, "He's highly efficient, gets through twice the work of the rest of them." So obviously Kingsley knows the same spell.

Hermione not amused

WTF?

Okay, I have no idea what the hell is going on when I send stuff from my phone to Dreamwidth, but I just had to edit the time of one such post manually on Dreamwidth because it was being labeled as having been sent from the future. (Tomorrow, to be precise.) Which is really weird, because my phone is displaying the correct time and date. May have to contact Verizon about that.
