Re: September Prompt: Back to School

Eating a finger bite appetizer, I regard my friend. "I've returned! But darn, my wand fragmented after I jinxed Arianna. I need time after dinner fixing it.

Re: Hufflepuff Quidditch Team

Dr. Marcie has some RL commitments with her new job and, while still being active in HOL, and continuing to be a superb ref, is handing over the Captain's hat to Katelin Ross.

I'm still Co-Captain.

Here is a circular scarf, knitted of sunshiney colours (multi-coloured yarn of bright yellow, purple, turquoise, pink, orange), for those days where you want something warm (and/or something cheerful) to wear.
