Re: Flash Fiction

Although she really wished she was in a theatre, she had to settle for watching movie classics with a bowl of popcorn in a moonlit room. She sighed as an elegant Fred Astaire danced with his cane and cloned male entourage in Top Hat; life was simpler then. (49 words)

My badge is a picture of the night sky. If you look closely, you’ll see the Little Dipper, a constellation of seven stars with Polaris at the end of the handle.

Re: Flash Fiction

She eventually deciphered the code . The key was based in music; two flats meant taking every second letter beginning at the start of the section while three sharps indicated every third letter beginning at the end. It was definitely worth memorializing so she marked the date on her calendar . (49 w...

Re: Tattoos

I don't have a tattoo and although I truly admire them from afar, I don't think I will ever get one. I guess the permanence doesn't appeal to me - I don't even have pierced ears!

Re: Let's Talk Cereal

Although I love all other dairy products, I've always hated milk so I was never interested in cereal. But lately I've been having oatmeal with cranberries and tahini for breakfast and I can make it with water!

Re: Names!

When I joined HOL, I chose the name Polaris Black. My RL surname is a derivative of Black and since most Black family members are named after stars or constellations, I chose Polaris because it was unique to several websites and services.

Re: Ask Me... (Icebreaker)

Since we're not allowed to have dragons, the most sensible pet for me would be a Fire Crab; its jeweled shell is simply gorgeous, it is very quiet, and it would not be too much of a fire hazard once licensed!

Who would be your date for the Yule Ball?

“I want to go Hogwarts and be a wizard.”
“You’ll have to wait for your letter,” his mother said
“Then I want a dragon. We can get a baby and no one will even notice!”
“Pet dragons are still illegal,” his mother said.
“Well then, how about a butterfly?” (49 words)
