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.

Katelin will be making a new post when the forum and permissions get updated! ^_^

Re: Task 7: Gifted and Talented

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. You can double loop it around your neck for extra warmth. https://i.postimg.cc/5jc022Wy/Se...

Re: Task 2: First Impressions

Tarma smiled as she saw Adaleine and waved. Then February came over and, yes, ice cream is the choice to eat! She'd noticed the high-jinks (and lo-jinks) going on and was ready to defuse, if needed, any explosions. But otherwise, things seemed to be going well and no one had been turned into a ferre...

Re: Names!

Ashton . :) I have my name, Tarma, from the character Tarma shena Tale'sedrin in series of books, The Oathbound , by Mercedes Lackey. It was either Tarma or Kethry, and Tarma suits me better, both as a name and personality in the stories. For a family name, I chose 'Black' because 1) I wear a lot o...

Re: Task 6: Tips, Tricks and Trepidations

Remember why you came here. Maybe (most likely?) you were looking for a site where the Harry Potter books (and movies) are appreciated and liked and/or loved. Hopefully you find folks of similar ilk here. :) There's nothing I remember that I wish someone had told me (and didn't) when I first joined....

A new week and new words to use!

Her expression was priceless as she spied the velociraptor perched on the bridge, hiding in the darkness, but exposed by the strong beam of her torch. (26 words)

Back to School - what is new?

You are back at Hogwarts - or at Hogwarts for the first time ever. If you are a returning student, what new classes are you taking which you didn't take last year? Did you drop some because last year you couldn't stay awake during them and finally you don't have to take them any more? Or did you add...

Tarma grinned as Vanessa went dripping by. She couldn't do much for any possible 'sticky' of butterbeer (and wondered if they would have to drain the fountain and restock it after someone had fallen in) but she could do something about the wetness of Vanessa's garb. Muttering a nice, quiet 'drying' ...

Re: Task 2: First Impressions

Tarma wandered into the sprawling area where so many people seemed to be gathering, eating, talking, walking, eating more, talking even more. The noise, after the quiet of the greenhouses (where she had been, checking on the plants), was so clamorous that she quickly decided to detour to the Book Cl...
