Harry Potter/Lord of Flies Mashup

It's a new school year at Hogwarts and the sorting hat ceremony is about to start. Among the new wizards sitting close together are Ralph and Jack. Jack was from an ancient line of pure blood wizards and carried himself with the arrogance of royalty. He looked down at Ralph and asked, "Which wizard's family are you from?"

Ralph had a muggle mother and a squib father so he was never told of the amazing world that existed past plattform 9 & 3/4. Excitedly, he responded, "I'm Ralph, and to my knowledge only my grandfather Gaston Lionheart was a wizard. I am still flabbergasted to find out there is this whole magical universe sitting right in my face... I mean, how could I not noticed, living in London, that there's Diagon alley? Believe me, that was the first time that shopping for school supplies was an adventure."

Upon hearing this, Jack turned his nose up and with a smirk, said, "Figures! I would've recognized a proper wizard, no wonder you're a filthy muggle blood. You have no right to be here and you will do good to stay away from me." Spitting at Ralph's feet, he got up and sat closer to other aristocratic looking boys. Ralph was shocked at the nasty words and a bit confused at the cold stares he was receiving from the table full of Slytherins.

"That blonde boy there is Draco Malfoy, and he is a certified troublemaker... Try not to provoke him or any other Slytherins," said a fat looking boy that Ralph had seen earlier at the Hogwart's express. Ralph turned to the newcomer and quickly asked, "What is your name?"

"Well, at my old muggle school they called me Piggy, but - "

Ralph interrupted with a loud laugh, "Piggy - what kind of nickname is that?!"
