Re: Flash Fiction

Disproving mythology had never been his goal. He probed and scoffed, countered every argument with the devil's advocate and reality's cold truth. But he would gladly switch to believing in fairy tales and urban myths. Anything to prove that his love was still here, just hidden. (46 words)

Re: Winter Reading Challenge 2019/2020

Ironically, I've signed up for a real life reading challenge which goes until February, so I'll pledge 3 books. I hope to read more, but realistic goals here!

Re: Sweets from the Harry Potter World

Definitely chocolate frogs for me. I know you can sometimes find them out in the real world. (I got lucky recently and found Bertie Bott's which was awesome!) Otherwise, I kinda lean more towards the general desserts almost more than the sweets? Don't get me wrong, you give me anything sweet and I'm...

Re: Harry Potter Subscription Boxes

I won't lie and say I'm not tempted to get one. There's been a spat of videos on a social media feed for those mystery wands and I was so bummed to find out that there doesn't seem to be a shop near me selling them. Not to mention, I definitely love collecting stuff. I have a shelf devoted to rocks ...

Re: No! Don't kill them! (Character you cried over most)

I think the one I cried over most was Dobby. He had been such a dear character to me and a good friend to Harry and he was also such a symbol of I guess innocence and joy. I can't tell you how much I quoted his lines from his fight with Lucius and still do. And I'm half tempted to buy one of those s...

Re: Flash Fiction

The wizard tucked the dragon youngling against his chest, twisting to see if he was being followed. But no alarm rang and he smirked. He had won, the dragon was his, not hers. He slipped out of the cave, missing the strangely curious butterfly following him.

Re: Task 2: First Impressions

"Oh no problem, I can be clumsy myself." Amy grinned, before turning to help scoop up paints off the ground. "I'm Amelia Darvill, but everyone calls me Amy. I'm new here." Handing a rather bright shade of red back to Vanessa, she nodded at the girl's offer. "I'll check it out but I'm not sure how mu...

Re: What Classes are you Taking?

I kinda wish I could take more then 5. After I signed up, it was like 'oh wait I could've taken this!' But I'm happy with my choices.

Re: Ask Me... (Icebreaker)

A wand for sure. I'm just imagining enchanting a slicer at work to make all of a certain order on its own... Don't grow up kids, you have the weirdest daydreams. That or Newt's suitcase.

Re: September – Picture Perfect

https://i.imgur.com/ijqcTRI.jpg?1 We had a late snow/ice storm last year, just after my favorite tree had started to bloom. I thought sure all the blooms were gone.

Re: Task 2: First Impressions

Amy hovered around the edges of the fair, mostly drinking in the sights. There were so many things to look at, so many people to watch, And yet taking that first step into the actual midst of it made her want to bolt into the Forbidden Forest. And she was far from an outside sort of person! Tugging ...
