A handy guide I wrote and illustrated for writers doing fic set at Hogwarts who want to know where everything is in relation to everything else.

The motorbike zoomed forward; Harry glimpsed hooded Death Eaters scattering as Hagrid blasted through their circle.
“Hedwig — Hedwig —”
But the owl lay motionless and pathetic as a toy on the floor of her cage.
