Re: Book Bout - Fictional modes of transportation

Aww, everyone’s answers are so awesome! I’d totally go for the TARDIS or a Wyvern but for my own answer, I’m going to go full Star Wars nerd here and say I’d like to have a spaceship akin to a Star Destroyer. Not only would it provide transportation, it would also be an optimal place to sleep, hold ...

Re: Book Bout - Bookmarks - Odd or Not

I’m somewhat ashamed of this but I am one of those heathens who regularly bends the top corners of pages in order to bookmark them. I tend to lose bookmarks at a ridiculously fast pace and somehow they always tend to drop out. Of course, I only bend the edges of my own book collection and don’t do t...

Re: Book Bout - A Tour of your Shelf

My bookshelf—at least, at the moment— is pretty disorganized. A few years ago, I was big into rearranging my books (sometimes by genre, author first/last name, alphabet title, date, etc.) but I soon got tired of doing this and ended up sticking to a rainbow order of books with white books at the top...

Re: Book Bout - Reading about Journeys

I agree with everything that’s been posted so far. Adventure definitely gives us a chance to expand our creative minds and place ourselves, along with the characters, in different, imaginative, wonderous lands and, like Louis said, adventure books certainly do provide a certain amount of escapism fr...

Re: Harry Potter Gear and Magical Meets!

I don’t have that much merch and what I do is mostly unwearable (things like figurines, puzzles, that kinda stuff). I do have a Gryffindor scarf that I absolutely adore. I got it from Universal studios and it has the same pattern/color as the scarves in the films. I love it because it’s discreet and...

Re: 2020 HOL Summer Beanstalk

Re: Harry Potter Roleplay

I haven’t done as much forum-based role play in the Harry Potter universe but I absolutely loved LARPing (Live Action Role Play-ing) my Harry Potter OCs when I was in Middle School. This goes for all role-plays but I personally don’t like playing in the canonical universe in which the major characte...

Re: If you were a witch/wizard, what would your dream job be?

I’d have to say I want to be either a hit witch or an Unspeakable. I like adventure, mystery, and a test of my wits, which being a hit witch would bring and I like responsibility and secrect-keeping, which would be perfect for an Unspeakable, though we don’t know the specifics of what that job would...

Re: Happy Birthday, Isa!

Thank you all so much for the birthday wishes! I’ve really enjoyed my month and a half in HOL so far and you have all been so nice and welcoming. I can’t wait for what the next term has in store for all of us and I hope to be able to contribute and show as much kindness to you as you have shown me <3

Harry Potter Fan Films

I just finished watching a fan film on YouTube called “Sisters House of Black.” Like the title suggests, it’s about the Black sisters and I found it really entertaining and fairly well produced.

I was wondering, do other people enjoy watching fan-made films and, if so, what would you recommend?

Re: Deathly Hallows - Which one would you choose?

As much as I’d want to say the invisibility cloak, I’d probably go for the Elder Wand. I’d definitely keep my own wand as a backup and wouldn’t tell anyone that I possessed such great power. As someone who takes the story of the Three Brothers (the story itself; that Death forged the three Hallows) ...

I’sa has never once backed down from a fight and, though some Jedi may see this as pride o...
