  7. Hello!I'm new Slytherin student)I hope we'll be friends😊
  8. I think they could make a free gift that doubled as a way of getting people's opinions for pols they could then publish. Interacting with the gift (like picking a certain pattern for a totebag or twisting a certain bit of engraving on a keyring) would then relay an opinion back to HQ, much like the enchanted galleons Hermione made but in reverse. This would not only be a good way of getting material for articles but also an excellent method of market research for the companies supplying the items.
  9. Hello friends! I just joined the Slytherin Common Room! My name is Anna Westbrook, a first year Ravenclaw. So happy to be here!!
  10. Beware, rambling ahead... Popularity is definitely a huge theme in the books and we see it throughout (from the huge dip in popularity Harry receives after losing Gryffindor points in PS, how infamous he becomes in CoS, the row between him and Ron in GoF and so on). I don't think JK ever paints general popularity (whether present or absent) in a particularly good light: it's the thing that bothers Harry, torments Ron and makes Hermione feel small. While we do see people like Ron, Ginny and Hermione stepping out of the shadows and finally getting some public credit in Half Blood Prince, it's not really something that we get to dwell on for very long. What seems to matter more to the author and the characters is the approval of particular individuals who've been highly critical of someone before: take McGonagall sticking up for Neville over his NEWT choices in this book. These moments are just more satisfying than an anonymous Quidditch crowd chanting Ron's name as they show the realisation of someone's value on a human scale; while she can use popularity as a good tool to bring realism to the school setting and to create tension, it's never really given space to seem like some kind of reward (even when the recipient has 'earned' it).

  13. My sig contains one of my my favorite quotes, which happens to be by Charles Addams: “Normal is an illusion. What is normal for the spider is chaos for the fly.” The avatar and signature both have green backgrounds and contain my favorite animal - an owl - wearing a witch's hat and riding on a broomstick.

  15. For our Slyth-o-ween adventure, we are using the Floo Network to travel from the Dungeons to a haunted house. It turns out that the haunted house is actually the Addams family mansion! We're out of Floo Powder and Morticia has made it impossible to Apparate or Disapparate into or out of the mansion. The only way back to the Dungeons is to get out of the mansion and beyond the gate. Easy! ... Except for the death traps, deadly beasts, deadly plants, booby traps, explosives, and whatnot found in the rooms, hallways, and staircases. Getting out of the mansion will be a group effort. Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, each person can perform up to three Moves to explore the mansion. A "move" may be physically moving from one known room to another or revealing a new room. However, if you choose to reveal a new room, you cannot use any other "moves" that day. As rooms are discovered, tasks associated with revealed rooms will be posted. You do not have to physically be in the room to complete the task. All tasks are worth 5 scales and due at the conclusion of Slyth-o-ween, which is whenever the gate is found! All HOL'ers are invited! Best of luck and be safe! Any questions regarding Slyth-o-ween may be posted below.
  16. Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, you have until midnight HOL time to make up to three moves. One move allows you to: Move through one doorway to an already known room Reveal an unknown room If you choose to reveal an unknown room, you cannot make any further moves that day. Columns are labeled alphabetically (A-Z) and rows are numbered. Here is the current Mansion Map. Example moves: The first moves can be posted on Monday, 21 October.
  17. M15 - Living Room - Exits: North, East, South, West
  18. As the emerald green flames flicker out, you take in the odd decor of the living room and decide to change into something more fitting. Slyth-o-ween signature time! Create an avatar and/or signature to use for this year's Slyth-o-ween adventure in the Addams family mansion and post them below. Please also include a brief description of your graphic. You can also describe your avatar/signature in words if you wish. Remember to upload your graphics to an image-hosting site. The standard size for an avatar is 100x100 px and signatures are 250x100 px.
  19. Five Fruits I'll keep this one short and sweet because I'm in the middle of multiple HOL projects. It's also harvest time, so it is kind of appropriate! Asian pears Strawberries Red grapes Clementines Honeydew melons
