    I believe that the square you’ve rendered as “Harry still skipping – Snape ?????” should actually be “Harry still skipping Snape – not going”, with the hyphen and “not going” being squeezed in as an afterthought so that the hyphen has ended up at the side instead of the end.

    I’m also about 80% sure that the little squiggle after “Snape grudgingly approves” says “ish”, meaning that he sort of approves, but not strongly, in the same way that something “sweetish” is only mildly sweet. You do occasionally hear people here in the UK use “ish” as if it were a stand-alone word – e.g.: “Was it a good film?” “Ish.”
