Muggle Footprints

Welcome to another muggle class.

Like Witches and Wizards, muggles go back a long way. There are theories ranging back many years from Adam and Eve to the Big Bang and many more.

For this class it is your job to come up with your own idea of how muggles first originated on this planet.

Be creative and have fun.

There is no word count but you may lose points if you do not write enough

Total points avaliable: 100

Every since muggles were made, there has been may theories on how they cam here. Adam and Eve, The Big Bang, they simple just landed here, etc. Did you actually know that we wizards and witches made them by accident? It’s true. One day while a young boy was making potions and using spells and charm a on tree and it started to grow legs and arms. The boy was named Merlin. He made this person and decided to try and make a female one for it, thinking it was a witch instead. After hours of thinking and working, he finally done it, only to discover that they had no idea what magic was and they couldn’t even do it. These people were the real Adam and Eve. During the history of this, the people began to fear witches and wizards, after one killed a muggle. After that, they went into hiding, acting like muggles until they were ready to start making stuff for them selves. After that, making muggles became hard to do and was banned from the wizarding world.

See I have the real story on how muggles really came to populate this world. Way back when there were these creatures called dinosaurs, most muggles believe them to have been stupid creatures. Little do they know that if it wasn't for dinosaurs they wouldn't be here today. Believe it or not the dinosaurs were amazingly intelligent creatures.

One day on T-Rex scientist and his wife the raptor decided to do a little experiment. They created all sorts of things, like the snake the toad and last but not least the muggle. After many experiments they decided that they wanted to see what would happen if they made more than one. Well they decided that these muggles were so much fun to play with and teach things to that they got carried away. Before they knew it they had hundreds of the Neanderthal muggles on their hands.

They tried to teach the Neanderthal muggles to be civilized and to act properly, but they were already to late. Eventually the muggles turned on the their creators and killed them all off one by one for food, recreation and what ever else you kill something for. After a while the muggles were the only thing in a small area left, and well they eventually evolved themselves out of need for better hunting techniques and skills.

Thus the hunter gatherer stigma was born. The muggles eventually evolved and grew smarter, and mated. They slowly started to populate and take over the earth. For awhile the muggles stayed far away from the lands of wizards and witches, but eventually their need for land and food became to great, so they expanded. We as a species of more evolved and higher beings took the high route and went into hiding.

We still exist, they just haven't evolved enough yet to realize us walking among them yet, one day they will. And then the evolutionary process will start all over again.

The End

One day there was a wizard named Paul, back when all people were wizards. Paul was married and was about to have his first child. Paul was an arrogant wizard, and found himself to be more powerful than all other wizards, and some even followed him. One day, Paul was walking when he saw some wizards dueling. "Weak fools" he said, and began to mock them, using magic to torture them, for back then there were no magic laws. Suddenly they turned around and one of them became a giant. "I am the creator" said the giant. "I have watched your arrogance and foolishness, and I find you to be weak!" he boomed. "You and your followers claim that you have my power, and now I curse you!" he continued. He held out his hand "May you, your followers, your wife, your followers' wives, and all descendants of you and your followers, be weak and powerless!" he yelled. He held out his hand, Paul felt weak. "Now you will all be ignorant, and separated from wizards and witches!" yelled the creator. And suddenly Paul and his followers all forgot about wizards and witches and then the worlds of muggles and magical beings were separated. However, the creator was kind and gave them the ability to create, which is why muggles are still alive today.

There was a man by the name of Harvey and he was a very unlike man only because of the fact that he lived in a village that was filled with the rich and Harvey unlike his neighbors was not rich. Harvey lived in a small cottage while all of the others lived in giant pretty houses and because Harvey did not live in a cottage they hated him. They would treat him unkindly and would throw money at him trying to make him feel poorer than what he actually was hoping that he would grow tired of them and leave but Harvey did not. Instead he lived there for years dealing with all of the cruel things that they all did to him. Then one day a man came to his house but this man was unlike any man that he had ever seen before. This man walked into Harvey’s house followed by many others and he walked over to Harvey and said “Follow me and I shall make you happy” and Harvey did just that. He went with the other ten people and followed this strange man into the woods. As they were walking through the woods the strange man would call out to the woods but yet he kept walking and did not stop. After what seemed like hours of walking the man finally stopped and picked up a twig that was laying o n the ground. He shoved the stick into the ground and a village appeared out of the ground. The man and the others followed him into the village and they walked to the clear other side of the village and walked into a giant building. Inside the building the man left them and the eleven men where then greeted by another man. This man said this to them: “I want you to drink from this potion and you will all become the first wizards.” And they all did as he asked. The strange men then pushed them out of the village and as they turned around they were unable to see the village. Harvey ventured back home and started to cast many spells and started to hurt the people who had picked on him. Then one day he was greeted by the other ten and they saw what Harvey did to the muggles so they decided to set up a ministry that would make sure that future wizards would not abuse the magic and so that is how the wizards came to be.

Everyone has been lead to believe that Adam and Eve started off the human race. Well i have a different thoerie.
Wizards and witches were on this earth long before muggles. Thw witches were fine in their own skin, they loved their magic and all the packages that came with it. The wizards were stubborn and resistant witb their magic. Some men loved their powers and there was a rift between groups. The men who wanted to be magical went one way and the others went the other way, the process had begun.

Years later the men who didn;t want to be wizards wanted to make the process complete, and went to seek the othersd to ask them to bolish their powers with theirs as it couldn't be done by alone. When the 'miggle men' approached them the magical men thought that they were comming back to the colony but heard their stories and thought that it would be better to get rid of them altogther and have nothing more to do with their ungrateful ways.
The magical people and the non-magocal people went their separate ways again, oly as whole muggles this time. The wizards gave them the name muggles as it meant 'ungrateful' in their language. Some women followed in the footsteps of the men, giving them children and increasing the population of muggles until they seemed to be the onbly people lef in the world.

The 'ungrateful' ones never told their children of the history and they never found out. That is how muggles and wizards became different spieces!

Muggle Footprints

Since the beginning of time the world was filled with all the animals and creatures that are there today, though of course many evolved since their original forms, but still they were there. Witches and Wizards could be found too, but not what are known today as muggles. It was probably centuries before non-magical folk came into being.

No one is truly sure how it happened, but one day a witch named Lucinde VanKempen gave birth to child, and though this child seemed an ordinary wizard at birth, later it was discovered that he could not produce magic. He, Michael VanKempen, was named a squib. He was the first of his kind, but not the last. Not long after there was an outbreak of squib children. The reason behind it is still unknown and though very rare in modern times, squibs are still born.

During the mass births of squib children, the Wizarding World got scared. Eventually the squibs got shunned from Wizarding society and forced to start there own cities. Squibs married other squibs and they had children, so on and so on. Stories of their origins died out and Witches and Wizards became folklore. They spread out and did run into their parent blood, but did not know of the difference. Figuring that these non-magical people would not accept their ancestors back easily, the Ministry of Magic decided to set rules to hide the Wizarding World from them while still living amongst them. These people were later named “muggles” after the English slang term “mug” for somebody who is easily fooled.

The magic of the muggle ancestors do still run through there veins, but only on a rare occasion is it seen. When a bundle of magic forms in the child of a muggle, they are called a muggle-born and then introduced into the Wizarding World and taught to control and use their magical abilities.

Historians still argue over who was the first muggle. Some say it was Michael VanKempen, but in technicality he was just a squib. Others say it was Charles Mallory, the first child born to two squib parents. And still there are some that say that muggles have no relation to Witches or Wizards at all. The latter are mainly Pureblood aristocrats such as the Malfoys, Parkinsons, Crouchs, and Flints. But I for one believe that we all did start from the same origin, whatever that may be. Yes we are not all alike, but we are still the same.

Muggles - a subject of questions and wondering, so confusing and unsovable that even they themselves come up with one theory after the other as to where they originate from. Until the day, nobody, neither wizard or witch nor man or woman, knows for sure how this peculiar species has come to our planet Earth, and this gives room for a lot of speculation. The Big Bang, Adam and Eve, creation of bored wizards or intelligent dinosaurs - the range of theories offers a variety so wide that barely anybody ever gets bored once engaging in this topic.

Personally, I have my very own theory of how those very different people came to life, and I know that just as with all the other ideas, I will probably never know whether or not I am right. So just listen to me and come up with your own opinion of how likely you think this is...

A long, long time ago there was no life on Earth, no bird singing his song, no fish roaming the water, no creatue stepping on the lands. There was only night and day, territories and oceans, and a silence so perfect you would never find it again today. But at some point, this changed. Creatures with unbelievable abilities came to the planet in little, colourful boxes that were their own, highly intelligent way of transport. They were different somehow, all of them, but one thing was alike: they looked distinctly like the humans of today.

These creatures were the so-called Wumggizardels from the planet Gord who had come because of overpopulation there. With detailed research, they had figured out Earth was a place that from its conditions would be good enough to live on, only missing the detail of actual life on it so far. Missing the sounds, the smells and mostly the food from back home, the Wumggizardels began re-creating the life of Gord on Earth. They had brought everything with them that they needed for this mission, and soon there were all the plants and the animals from their home all around them. Their abilities had helped them to feel as if they were still on Gord.

All seemed well on Earth at that point, but after a few Wumeses, a period of time known as months nowadays, a fairly large amount of he Wumggizardels started feeling drained and tired all the time, and in the course of a Wunano, or a year, their great abilities somehow ceased. There were now almost two different populations, and the Wumggizardels that still held their power had a growing sense of superiority, whilst those weakened could do nothing to regain their strength of mind and loathed this a lot. Over time, the two groups drifted apart until an unrepairable distance between them had settled, and the powerful ones came to the conclusion that they needed to stay away from the others so they would not be put in danger of similarly losing their speciality.

The population divided and deciding to have nothing in common any longer, they splitted their name to become Wizards, the enabled, and Muggles, the disabled. Up from that point, this magic only sparked up rarely among Muggles, and then a Muggleborn would be accepted into the wizarding population, but other than that the Wizards were no longer remembered by the Muggles for the loss they had experienced was too painful for them to think about and the Wizards wanted to keep to themselves to avoid becoming Muggles as well. However, until today there are still some reminders of the origins of all humans, as they have called the whole of them: the idea of a God stems from their original home, the planet Gord, and their clever little boxes have survived time to be known to Muggles nowadays as mere telephone boxes, while the Wizards still remember their original use.

A long time ago on a planet in a neighboring solar system, there was a civil war going on. This planet was called Muggenuth, and a new dictator had taken control of the planet. While most of the Muggles were perfectly happy being controlled and told what to do, there was a faction that was not. The previous emperor, Moffew, and his followers wanted nothing to do with Dictator Jarong, so they secretly built for themselves ships to escape the planet. Among Moffew's followers were members of his intergalactic army, whom Moffew had sent to explore space for a new home when it looked like Jarong would win power. The soldiers had come back with word of a planet that was called Earth by the inhabitants. Earth most closely matched their own planet as far as atmosphere and vegetation. Moffew and his followers escaped Meggenuth and made their way to Earth.

The Wizard council at that time (this was around 500,000 B.C.) had gotten word of the Muggenuth's coming from their star readers (the information was then backed up by their prophet). They convened, and decided that they would help the Muggles to find a way to make Earth their new home. However, Fredric Malfoy (a council member), thought it prudent to find a way to keep the Muggle culture separate from the wizard. Therefore, the council decided that the Muggles would be welcome, but only if the wizard council immediately wiped all knowledge of the wizard world from their memories.

When the Muggles landed on Earth and the wizard council greeted them, they agreed to the memory wipe on one condition. They also wanted the wizards to wipe all knowledge of their home world from their memories, as it was too painful and they wanted a fresh start at life. The wizards agreed, and after helping the Muggles settle into life on Earth, the memory wipe was done and the wizards and the Muggles shared Earth from that time on, with the wizards still keeping knowledge of magic from the Muggles, as was originally decided.
