Re: 2019-2020 Quidditch Pickups Thread!

This past evening featured the first weekend pickup of the season; on an autumnally cloudy night with depressing weather, people from every house (including a confirmed Squib) flew onto the pitch. In fact, no fewer than nine people showed up to play! We began with two games of Creaothceann... the Sc...

Re: HP Fan Theories

My personal theory is that the Pensieve that Professor Snape showed Harry Potter - in which Snape's reasons for his actions are 'revealed' to be undying love for Harry's mother - was altered by Snape (and that Snape's actual motivations were somewhat different than what he showed Harry). We spend mo...

Re: 2019-2020 Quidditch Pickups Thread!

Pickups began for the year on this warm, early October evening. Five people suited up to play, representing each house - and we began with two games of the popular 'everyone can score on every question' variant of Xany (once on the normal Quidditch set and once on the special Cascade set). Then it w...

Re: Task 11: Leave Your Mark

[OUT OF CHARACTER] HOL is a place that helped me further refine the Slytherin traits that I valued... and one of the last few places where I could refer to such traits by name. That said, I met all sorts of great people from all four houses over the years - and enjoyed all sorts of adventures along ...

Re: Task 10: Taking Stock

As much fun as I've been happening visiting the various booths of the fair, I was distracted by the dungeon snakes hissing at me in Parseltongue - a language that I really want to bring back to this school! But even there I collected a nice little potion (I'm waiting to open it until the end of the ...

Re: Task 8: Fabulous Freebies

The Quidditch booth is giving out toy Golden Snitches, which look like the real thing but fly much slower. This allows the taker to familiarise themself with the motion of the Golden Snitch without being distracted by the speed of the real thing. Also, the slow motion of the toy Snitch allows everyo...

Re: Task 7: Gifted and Talented

I decided to leave a large container of chocolate powder, crushed from Honeydukes chocolate, for the next taker. It is well known that chocolate is delicious and can ward off the effects of Dementors, but it is less well known that in powder form it can improve almost any other food or drink! For ex...

The Race for the Quods is now over!

As for now, the winners of the Snitch tournament are: Aria...

I was expecting my team, the Baltimore Ravens, to crash and burn this year [despite preseason, which does not matter] but so far, unlike just about every other team I'm following, they're actually doing well!

Re: Task 5: Creative Cartography

The area just to the left of the viaduct should be marked with the colour green and some indication to show that this is where the Slytherin dungeons are: after all, this is the best place to see the lake! Similarly, I would mark the clock tower with blue and the central tower with red to reflect Ra...
