Re: Flash Fiction

Breanna held up the shield and looked in the mirror. Her observance was interrupted by her brother stumbling into the room, wrestling with a horse’ s mask. “You look more like a jester than a proper animal,” she commented as she put a helmet over her face, finally prepared for Trick-or-Treating. 50 ...

Re: Flash Fiction

Ezio changed his mind and put the sword away. This mission required a lot of stealth and he would rather avoid fighting. He laughed softly and started jumping across the rooftops, avoiding the guards underneath.

Re: Let your creative juices flow!

Congratulations, you survived your first month of internship! You did such a good job at The Daily Prophet, that Cordelia Hardcastle recommended you to a famous British magizoologist, Rylan Whitecombe. You decided that a change of pace is needed and accepted the new internship position. It cannot be...

October – Hush Little Baby

Thoroughly exhausted, you are looking forward to the warm bed that awaits you. Before going to your bedroom, you throw out the trash that gathered when you groomed the beasts. Just as you put the cover back on the bin, you heard panicked shouting from where you last saw Ryland. Worried that the hand...

October – Flour It!

As you are putting the finishing touches on the new toy for the Zouwus, you hear a loud crash in the direction of the main house. Groaning you jump to your feet and run towards the commotion, hoping that nothing of values was lost. You throw yourself through the front door and hear chitters in the k...

October – Soft Kitty, Warm Kitty, Little Ball of Fur

After you tried to find as many hiding places as possible, you decided to return to Rylan. However, on the way back, you were besieged by three Zouwu who had what looked like broken sticks, ripped cloth and a small bell in their mouths. It seems that their toy got broken and they want you to make a ...

October – Hide or Seek

Rylan first points you in the direction of the pens to the west of the property. When you make your way there, a handler there tells you that several creatures you have never heard of before had escaped and are hiding somewhere on the property. What makes the search more difficult is that they can t...

HP Fan Theories

Before a series is finished, or when a single release does not answer all of the reader’s questions, people start to form theories about the lore of the story and Harry Potter is no exception. When I was reading the books for the first time, I figured that there had to be a deeper reason for Snape t...

Re: Devastation in Harry Potter

For me it was actually in two places, during the lull in the fighting where Voldemort told Harry that he had one hour to come to the Forbidden Forest to surrender and the immediate aftermath, where Harry notices just how many people were wounded or have died during the battle. But most heart wrenchi...

Re: Dream Merch?

I would love to see something that is also mentioned in the books. A toy snitch or a toy broomstick that can fly around the room! There is something similar already available, a toy snitch with the illusion of flight, but it still needs some type of help. I am speaking more about a remote controlled...

Re: Task 10: Taking Stock

I left the fair with two full bags of all sorts of knickknacks. The first one was, true to my nature, full of snacks. Muffins from the Ravenclaw booth, other delicious things that were offered at other places and a big pile of the sweetest chocolate. To not be selfish, I also got some owl teats from...

Re: Task 7: Gifted and Talented

I bring to the table my old Ravenclaw Quidditch team uniform. It is, naturally, in Ravenclaw colors of deep blue and bronze, with an eagle emblazoned in the back together with a player number and a name. However, those will magically change after a new person puts it on. The uniform comes with stand...

Re: Task 11: Leave Your Mark

What I love most about HOL is that there is a place for everyone. Studious people can take a lot of classes, a huge Quidditch pitch for those more comfortable on the broom, library and art departments for creative people with IRC and common rooms for social butterflies. No one feels out of place in ...

Re: Flash Fiction

With full moon high in the sky, the door slammed open as the nurses wheeled a person into the operating theatre. They were followed by a man with a cane, who had to stay outside, hoping his friend would recover from the vicious bite.

Re: Task 8: Fabulous Freebies

I bring bludgers! Not real ones though. These are small, bludger replicas in a wide array of options. First, there is the “normal”, black bludgers, just a miniature of one that follows players around in the field. We also have four house bludgers in their house colors and one purple for Squibs or th...
