Return of the Arcade

When I started out at HOL, the Slytherin Dungeons had an arcade built in where one could play Muggle video games. Sadly, the arcade was lost in the Great Dungeon Flood of 2015. Last summer, though, after three years without an arcade, my Head of House, Prof. Scarlet Leslie-Lewis talked about trying ...

Re: 2018-2019 Quidditch Pickups Thread!

Although the weather this time was much more "hot" than "windy" for our final pickup of the year, we still had a great time anyway! This time we had five people turn up, again divided amongst three houses. This worked well for the games, which were themed based on a preview of SQL 2019! First, we di...

Re: 2018-2019 Quidditch Pickups Thread!

Following the "hot" weather in the last pickup, this evening matched Gertie Keddle's second weather report with a "wet" day, which nonetheless still allowed Quidditch to happen! Will the next pickup, the last one of the season, end up "windy"? In any event, we had four people to show up - divided am...

This evening featured weather possibly as hot as it was during the first recorded Quidditch match (remember: Gertie Keddle's first word describing Quidditch was "hot".) Nevertheless, we still saw all four houses show up to play today! We began with a quick 11-boulder round of Creaothceann... and the...

Re: 2018-2019 Quidditch Pickups Thread!

This past evening we had the first pickup of 'summer time' for HOL. People from all four houses showed up for the party, though we probably couldn't quite describe the gathering as "2 ickles and 3 nuts". Instead of flying to a recent Muggle song (as I threatened), we began with the more standard act...
