Re: Lesson 2 - Discover a Noun

The noun I recently discovered was 'sosli' which in english translates as soil. I discovered this noun from Loki, my current and very helpful snake, whilst in the Greenhouses as I was practising some repotting. All of my equiptment was collected and I was ready to start - or so I thought. I'd forgot...

Re: Lesson 2 - Choose your own Snake

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/EC-eMSrXUAEtrjn.jpg This is Loki, or should I say Sloci and he is a Firefly Clown Ball Python. He isn’t a fully grown adult yet, yet he is 2 feet in length and is a beautiful faded yellow colour with lots of beautiful black patterns. Loki is a very friendly snake, althou...

Re: Lesson 2 - Critical Inference (SPRING 2021)

1. 'Tasi doʃe kura fasi stabsle gara sliʃe athne.' I believe the word sliʃe would translate as lie, or possibly even sleep. Translating the rest of the sentence to start with, and using what I learnt about sentence structure in lesson one, the positioning of the word suggests that sliʃe is a verb. A...

Re: Lesson 1 - Introduction

Hi there~ My name is Lucia Dinapoli (or Slusi'a Dinaposli in Parseltongue if I've translated correctly!) I'm a second year Slytherin. As a Slytherin and a lover of animals (it is my dream to one day be a Magizoologist!) I feel I am naturally drawn to Snakes, and being able to communicate with these ...

Re: Favorite Type Of Music

I find it hard to choose just one type of music as I like listening to a lot of stuff! I think I prefer Alternative rock and Pyschedelic Pop/Rock out of everything but I am very open to the stuff I listen too ~

Re: How Many Books Do You Read Per Year

I never used to read too many books per year but from 2019 onwards I have aimed to read at least a book a month as my job permits for looooots of long breaks so I have a lot of free time! 2020 I read more books than I ever have and this year I am aiming for even more! My goal is two a month (most li...

Re: Wizarding Holidays

I've never thought about the wars not being celebrated by Muggles, that's such an interesting point! I don't think the Wizarding Community would celebrate things like Bonfire Night, and I always think about Easter too. Do Wizard's have an Easter Bunny? It would be very interesting - and probably amu...

Re: Creature Magic: What's Your Favorite Magical Beast?

I have so many favourite magical creatures but I will have to go with Bowtruckles. They're like a combination of my two favourite things - plants AND animals! They're super cute, and completely peaceful unless provoked which I like to say I can relate to ~ (Honourable mention to Phoenix's tho, theyr...

Re: Dream Merch?

I'm not actually too sure if these are already on the market but I have always LOVED the idea of having Herbology themed merch. Maybe its just the Herbology / Plant nerd in me coming out but I feel like there would be SO much potential for it as well as potentially being super good for the environme...

Re: No! Don't kill them! (Character you cried over most)

I think I cry so much at pretty much all of the deaths in both the books and movie adaptions but I think the one that hit me the most first time around had to be Cedric. Cedric's death, especially within the books, was of such huge importance. He was always so consistently shown to be a good, kind, ...
