    The Hearing - Task 2

    Brighten up that dreary place a bit! Purple and green velvet for the material of the chair, with hot red piping along the edges. Maybe add a crimson pillow and one of silver hues.

    Week 3 Creative Task

    Trying to get the attention of some of the people of Slytherin means going to where they are -- and doing what one must to obtain their attention. Image shows someone in green practicing with a Quaffle on the Quidditch Pitch. Someone else, in black, Beater's Bat in hand, is about to whack a Bludger at the person in green. Stick figures throughout image.

    The Ministry of Magic - Task 2

    from: Department of Magical Law Enforcement to: Department of Magical Games and Sports We would appreciate it if you would cease to use the interdepartmental memos as Pucks and our coffee cups as the 'Net'. We would also appreciate it if you would stop broadcasting our verbal responses to your 'games' through all the floors of the Ministry. Thank you. edit: image from internet - before posting I asked Scarlet if I may and she said 'yes'

    The Noble and Most Ancient House of Black - Task 1

    Oh, I can see both of those substances, doxy venom and Wartcap powder, making their way into Weasley's Wizard Wheezes products! The wartcap powder ... oh the wide variety of things it could go into, including a hand lotion (or a facial splash after shaving). Another material which the twins might collect while decontaminating the house, as gross as it seems, are clippings from the umbrella stand. To be more specific, toe-nail clipping from the severed troll's leg umbrella stand.

    The Noble and Most Ancient House of Black - Task 2

    Well, this is a bit of intersection of both -- last name being 'Black' and all that. Way back when Iola Black married Bob Hitchens, she was burned off the family tree. So yes, all the children of that union are not shown. However, they did have children and did keep in touch with their blood family, whether recognized or not (per their purblind snooty ancestor-record-keeper). Eventually, a couple of distantly related people met -- a child of Arcturus Black met a great great ? something child of Bob Hitchens. This child of Arcturus and Melania (one again not shown on the family tree, not even being burned off but totally eliminated when the record-keeper of that time had a snit because they lost a Quidditch match against Arcturus's team) retained the last name of 'Black' and married yet another witch (from the Hitchens connection) and they had children and lo, and behold, eventually showed up another Black family member not on the tree! Me!

    Week 2 Creative Task

    What food could possibly be at this party? I'm really hoping it is not rotten maggots or mouldy cheese, like what the ghosts had for Sir Nicholas de Mimsy-Porpingtons party. Then I realize, no, of course not. They'd have all kinds of decadent foods! I think that there would be drinks of all kinds -- I'm really wishing for hot mulled cider. (It's sort of cold!) Chocolate? What about OH, I'd love to see chocolate eclairs! Yes! That would be great too. And of course, I'd look for pizza! Extra cheese and sauce, please! I'm hoping that they didn't colour all their food green (or green and silver), though.

    The Order of the Phoenix - Task 2

    I think that the award in which I I take the MOST pleasure is my Race Finisher Award from Broom Race - The Race Across Sweden. Professor Dom Gaidin is the person who created the Games Tent in the Sett, and, while I've continued with his ideas, I've toned down the challenge aspect a bit (okay, a lot sometimes). Broom Race - The Race Across Sweden was one of the most difficult and challenging and incredibly fun classes ever. To actually receive that finishing award is something of which I am very proud.

    The Order of the Phoenix - Task 1

    How funny that Sirius says potion-making, because I was thinking of cooking food! It occurred to me that using magic to ... stir the cream into whipped cream ... or pour ingredients into a waiting bowl or all the other things that one does, little finicky things of cooking, might just have a result not intended! After all, a pinch of this, a tad of that, measured with practice and almost instinctive, might just have strange results with rendered with a wand. (Visions of what Elvira made ....) Or, a lovely whipped cream, intended to be on top of a pie, might turn into a huge froth of foam filling the table. (Which might be amusing, actually, but what a waste of cream!)
