There is an apparent plot-hole here and continuity error. We are told Fliemoe, the School Bully, was a member of Tree Frog House. But T.F. House (as we are told in the Yearbook) is part of the day school - it does not, by definition, take boarders. Therefore Fliemoe would not have been allocated a study, within which he could gently torture his fags. Studies, and study-bedrooms, in the British boarding school tradition, are allocated to boarders only.

Now this does not preclude Fliemoe transferring later to a boarding house. Perhaps day pupils taking the Black are automatically transferred to boarding places so they can be on call for lessons at all times of the week, 24/8. But on the face of it, he could only have been School Bully part-time, during the academic day? AgProv (talk) 21:20, 6 September 2014 (UTC)

Wow! You're creating some problems today. A reference for his membership in Tree Frog House would be helpful. I'm already boggled by the return of the Small Gods Question. Maybe Tree Frog House has become a day school house since then? --Old Dickens (talk) 01:26, 7 September 2014 (UTC)
