  1. if you can wait until 2020, I plan on bringing back Parseltongue for the spring semester!

  2. congratulations emma! hope you enjoy the lounge!
  3. No, not really my thing. The wizard/witch below me loves puzzles.
  4. Maybe some other houses might want me too, but the above is wrong! TWBM is currently sitting down.
  5. The hardest part of this year was probably having to spend it without my favourite Slytherin blanket Malumbrabas (the whole 'green vs silver' thing ;)). Congratulations to all the other award winners and thanks for making this year so ssssatisfying!
  6. *roars a villainous roar one last time* thanks for the fun and adventures... and hopefully everyone enjoyed my musical selections!
  7. FINAL STANDINGS FOR JUNE 2019 1st place: Prof. Scarlet Leslie-Lewis - 130277 points (Gold Joystick) 2nd place: Will Lestrange - 88959 points (Silver Joystick) 3rd place: Prof. Amy Lupin - 76816 points (Bronze Joystick) But you still have a chance to compete against these scores at the Living High Score Board!
  8. The designated villain I'm writing about for these purposes is the lion born with the name Taka from Lion King (better known by his nickname, "Scar"). His goal was to become the king of the Pridelands, a position that would instead be inherited by his older brother Mufasa due to a question of birth order. And when Mufasa had his own son, Simba, Taka fell even further down the line of succession! Not only did he want power for his own reasons, but he recognized that Mufasa was not the best leader for the Pridelands (the way he treated the hyenas explains why it was so easy for Taka to convince them to come to his sides) and Simba was going to be even worse as a leader. This guided his actions as much as his own ambitious desire for power. Unfortunately, becoming the king when you're that far behind in the line of succession tends to require some sort of violence or actions that are traditionally typed as 'evil'... how else can you ensure that a king is dead and his heir has fled? [Shards for this post should go to the Villains.]
  9. For stealth purposes, I wonder if it would be a good idea to have a weapon that looks like something innocuous or even takes such a form. For example, a weapon might be disguised as a standard (potentially Muggle) household item such as a pen. Looking for examples, Mjölnir (Thor's weapon) is often disguised as a walking stick - and can even be picked up by mere mortals in that form. Another Muggle example is known as an "umbrella gun". This is - well - a gun (a Muggle fighting stick) that can also take the form of an umbrella (a Muggle tool to block rain)! I feel that sort of disguise could definitely give me the element of surprise!
  10. Another entire genre of 'hero vs villain' battles that has evaded mention so far is in the form of video games. When playing many video games, you normally play the role of the hero (such as Mario, or Sonic, or BJ Blazkowicz) fighting against designated villains. It's not unheard of, though, for the main twist to be that your character is actually the designated villain (I'm told that's the game in a game called 'BioShock', for example). And sometimes, characters switch 'hero' and 'villain' roles from game to game! For example, in Donkey Kong, you play as the hero Mario and the titular ape Donkey Kong is the villain... but in the sequel, Donkey Kong Jr, you play as Donkey Kong's kid - who is now the hero as Mario has become the villain. That said, it's worth noting that in most games where you play as the hero - the villain wins more often than not (because the game is hard enough that you lose several times before you win)!
  11. I was also disappointed by the Bellatrix vs Molly battle, but I felt that her death was a fitting counterpart to the death of her cousin, Sirius Black (also a "hero vs villain" battle). Remember that Sirius died in a duel with Bellatrix after taunting and laughing at his cousin - not really taking her assault seriously. Similarly, when Bellatrix was dueling against Molly Weasley, she herself was laughing at Molly, underestimating her and not taking her seriously until the moment that Molly cast the spell that killed Bellatrix. I would have preferred a better end for Bellatrix to go, but it does make sense that her death matched Sirius's. In my opinion, this is one of many examples of Sirius truly being of his family despite his attempts to run away from them; another such example would be both Sirius and his mother using Permanent Sticking Charms to attach their own respective photos to 12 Grimmauld Place.
  12. Less than a week to go for the Emerald Cup!  Support Heroes or Villains (especially Villains) while you still can... and then it's time to celebrate for the summer!

    (PS:  Brabas, I really miss you!)
