Hey guys!

We have had a bit of delay for releasing the results of the contest only because we have two ties with the polling. We're issuing another poll for those two ties with a 24 hour limit to vote. So, Gryffindors, once again if you'll head over to the GCR and vote on your favorites!

Beans will be awarded tomorrow evening after the polls close and we have the finalists.

Marie, that is an excellent idea. Missa and I will definitely talk that over and see what we can do. I do not see why that would be a problem at all! Also:

Thank you, everyone, for your submissions! We have had some absolutely amazing entries and you all are making choosing the finalists extremely difficult for the Gryffindor staff.

We are working on narrowing them down at the present time, so be patient while we do this and the voting poll for Gryffindors should be up within the next couple of days!

Again, thank you all!

Just wondering if everyone might see not just the winning titles to be ..... but if we can also see some honorable mention titles???? This was a great challenge!!!

All of the many, many entries we have received are absolutely brilliant. Keep them coming!

I'd say get ready all of far only one Gryff has submitted anything. Still a little bit of time, but just think, you could be the one naming the Paw Print sections!

I think this will be a grear challenge and get ideas flowing. Ha ha ha to Sachiko!!! I love the puns.... it reminds me of my grandmother who did a cross stitch picture of a Lion for my birthday and She called him "Tear A Long the Dotted Lion"! Because cross stitch patterns have dots ect... well you get the idea.... lol I can't wait to see the ideas...

I'll send you a A-Z list. You might regret it. *ROTFL*
Yay for Gryffindor!

Those we're great, thank you Sachiko.

We literally do need your help here. I pretty much started this paper and handed the reigns over and over again. For the first time in forever (cue Frozen music) Zee and I are trying to bring it back in the best way we can. Not just from scratch, but with new exciting ideas. We're working in collaboration on this. I've poked her, she's poked me for feedback on ideas, etc.

What we would absolutely LOVE is for Gryff to get involved, because let's be honest, that would be spectacular for our house...

I am also looking forward to the other ideas the rest of HOL comes up with. Most sections/areas of this paper is open to all houses, but you know, we're lions, we like our moments. We're not the best namers of stuff.

Really my heartfelt plea to any active Gryff's is to try. My equally heartfelt plea to all of HOL is to try. We're trying to bring back a lot of stuff. This is just the first step. We hope you'll try and stick with us the rest of the way.

They were actually some pretty fantastic puns. Well done.

Oooooh! I am anxiously awaiting September 8th! ♥

Better stop lion around and do some serious brainstorming in the meantime!

... be a little simba-thetic, will you? I'm not used to making lion-puns!
