Re: Flash Fiction

I am an aspiring Potioneer so I spend a great deal of time in the dungeons of Hogwarts, staring at my cauldron. And although he’s been gone for ages, I always think of Professor Snape for inspiration. Always. (38 words)

Re: Flash Fiction

The team worked together like a set of well-oiled gears. They had been practicing for this day since last spring and their insignia shirts were visibly worse for wear. At daybreak they huddled over a large map, planning their final mission. (41 words)

Re: Flash Fiction

He stared at Euterpe, the three-masted clipper named after the Greek goddess of music and lyric poetry. Its wooden figurehead wore a blue gown, a silver belt and headpiece, and held a silver flute. And for a mere bag of gold, he had purchased the voyage of a lifetime. (49 words)

Buh Bye, Pottermore

On October 1, it was reported that Pottermore will be closing to make way for a rebranding of the website. With the addition of Fantastic Beasts and The Cursed Child, the existing content has simply outgrown the platform. If you haven’t already, be sure to sign up for your Wizarding Passport so the ...

Although she was never any good at reading maps, she signed up for the survival challenge anyway. But the puzzle became unsolvable and she got hopelessly lost in the forest. It was only a matter of time before she would fire red sparks into the air to call for help. (50 words)

Re: Flash Fiction

Thank you, Rowena Ravenclaw, for making my first year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry such an adventure. You designed the magical stairs that could actually make me feel elated when I finally heard the music and realized that I made it in time for Frog Choir auditions. (49 words)

Re: October Prompt: Halloween

All Hallows’ Eve can be traced back to Samhain, an ancient Celtic festival that was celebrated to mark the end of the harvest. We plan to take a hayride to see a haunted house, carve a jack-o’-lantern, and bob for apples. Next we will disguise ourselves as witches, zombies and superheroes and march ...

Re: Flash Fiction

His new friend was a member of a medieval reenactment society and he wanted to impress her. So he enrolled in a class and forged a respectable shield. But his makeup was dreadful; he looked more like the Joker than a jester. Maybe he should arrive on a horse? (49 words)

Re: Flash Fiction

He was a Queen’s Guard, one of only four, standing outside Buckingham Palace. His rifle wasn’t loaded; he might as well be carrying a sword. Today his biggest challenge was fighting the urge to laugh, which could cost him a week’s wages. But some people were just too funny. (49 words)

Re: HP Fan Theories

My favorite fan theory involves the Deathly Hallows and the Peverell brothers. In the theory, Voldemort is Antioch, the eldest brother who was killed after seeking the power of the Elder Wand, Snape is Cadmus, the middle brother who died to join a dead girl he once loved, and Harry is Ignotus, the y...

Re: Task 6: Tips, Tricks and Trepidations

I'm seeking advice for getting involved if you don't always have extra time. I really love HOL so far and plan to make time for it, but I'm worried I'll forget about a forum for a week or something, which might look bad. Any advice for real-life-HOL balance? This is just an addition to Scarlet's ex...

Re: Task 2: First Impressions

Polaris was in Ravenclaw Tower, staring down at the crowds gathering for the Welcome Fair. This was her seventh year, her last as a student, and she was trying to savor the moment. Everybody had warned her that the first of September would be bittersweet. She saw Will fly by the window and waved to ...
