Re: Eurovision 2019

I always watch and I know quite a few HOLers do as well. I thought the Netherland's song was good, though not quite exciting or unique enough to be a true Eurovision song for me; it felt like something that would top the ordinary charts whereas Eurovision is usually a bit more unusual. The UK didn't...

May Prompt: Ink-redible Destinations

We all love to take an extended tour around our favourite fictional worlds, maybe stopping for tea with Sherlock Holmes, shopping at Diagon Alley and finishing the day with a game of croquet courtesy of the Queen of Hearts. But what if we had to carry some kind of a travel document (a page turner’s ...

May Prompt: Interesting Instructions

To a pot or vessel of brass over a medium fire, add a pint of witches’ tears, two feathers fresh-pulled from a cockatrice’s tail, six pea-sized stones of three-day-old hail from a mountaintop… -Garth Nix, Frogkisser! Thus begins a very important recipe that sends an intrepid hero off on a quest. It...

Re: Catching up

Hi Poppy! Welcome to HOL. My first suggestion is to check the deadlines on any classes you've signed up for. For classes with deadlines that have already gone by, message your professor or student teacher and ask politely if you can make up enough work to pass the class. They should understand as lo...

Re: Gathering and Games

May’s #gamesroom gathering will be in around 2 weeks on May 19th, 5 until 8 PM HOL-time! It’ll be a fun packed day on IRC - make sure you stick around for a couple of hours after we’re done to catch Quidditch Pick-ups as well. In April, we were on the hunt for spies, treasure and elusive words. In o...

Re: Hysterical parts from HP

Oh man. This article was pure gold (particularly the entire Quidditch Commentator section) It did leave out my favourite funny moment though: Ron: "Only time I've ever seen Dad as angry as Mum, Fred reckons his left buttock has never been the same since." Harry: "Yeah, well, passing over Fred's left...

Frogkisser! May Book Discussion

This month we’re on the hunt for ingredients for an incredibly important lip balm as we read Garth Nix’s Frogkisser!. Join us for a funny, fanciful and thought provoking quest through a very diverse (if ‘slightly’ dangerous) land. Responsible robbers, right minded sorcerers, otters, frogs, royal dog...

Frogkisser! Prologue to Chapter 9

She very rarely cried, but being brave all the time took an enormous amount of effort. Sometimes she just got tired of keeping everything together. Here we’ll be discussing the prologue and chapters 1 through 9 of ‘Frogkisser!’ With the exception of the matriarch of the royal dogs, Anya doesn't rea...

Frogkisser! Chapters 10 to 18

But I suppose you were expecting someone more . . . er . . . traditional, my suspicious newt? Here we’ll be discussing chapters 10 through 18 of ‘Frogkisser!’ We’re used to so called ‘Twisted Fairy Tales’ confounding our expectations of the roles people will play and how legendary stories actually ...

Frogkisser! Chapters 19 to 28

the water had the consistency of oatmeal and it smelled worse than the main canal, if that was possible. Here we’ll be discussing chapters 19 through 28 of ‘Frogkisser!’ These chapters include a truly disgusting boat ride through the capital city. Did you enjoy these sections or were you too busy c...

What do you mean, someone else? Here we’ll be discussing the remaining chapters of ‘Frogkisser!’, including the epilogue. You can also use this thread to talk about the book as a whole now you’ve finished it. We’ve reached the end of Anya’s story (at least for now). Not all the loose ends have been...

Re: The Frog Prince - Creative Task

I actually disagree with most people who are suggesting tall or mid-height: I think the prince would be quite short for a man. There’s just something about him having been transformed into a frog that makes me think a smaller person would survive the transformation better (having read Garth Nix’s ‘F...
