  1. Sure! Here are the articles: Slytherin Ravenclaw Hufflepuff Gryffindor I've never played any of the games that made the lists for Slytherin or Gryffindor. It's kind of funny that they did choose Pandemic for Hufflepuff.

  9. (Welcome back, Sky!) I guess the easiest explanation is that it is more likely that readers are familiar with non-magical creatures than magical ones. We still don't actually know the details of some magical creatures. But it is pretty cool to get to learn the symbolism associated with "regular" animals that we usually don't think about. I like to believe that Patronuses come from your core. The form that ultimately materializes will come from your inner essence and thus be slightly more primal, so most Patronuses will not possess any magical traits. It does kind of make sense that the animal will be one native to the home of a witch or wizard. Those are the creatures that they will see often and are constantly around, especially when the caster is young, though I wonder if your heritage plays a role at all.
  10. I ordered Villainous when I got 5-Minute Marvel. In Villainous, each player is a different Disney villain trying to fulfill his/her objective. The other players can play Fate cards to thwart your efforts. I really like some of the game mechanics, like starting your turn by moving your piece to a different location in your Realm. The actions that you are allowed to perform are dictated by the location. It's also interesting how some cards are placed in your Realm and can move around. So far, the match-ups we've played have not been very balanced... Though I did completely misinterpret a critical card when I played as Jafar. We might need to become more familiar with the decks. I've read that Villainous plays best with 3 players, so we'll have to try with more players. Up to 6 can play at a time, which is one of the reasons why I wanted to get this game in the first place. Most of our games are only for 4 players. Last night, a group of volleyball friends had a game night. I had to work, so when I got there, they were in a middle of a game of Telestrations, a combination of the games Pictionary and Telephone. After another round of Telestrations, we played a game of QuickWits. The players take turns flipping over the top card of the deck. Most cards have a symbol and a category (like "Ninja Turtle Character" or "Johnny Depp Movie"). When two symbols match, those players must quickly name something from the other person's category to win the card. There are also cards that link different symbols together, make you do charades or come up with a trivia question, and put two players in a battle. Whoever collects the most cards wins! Before everyone began heading their separate ways, we played a round of Catchphrase. The other team swept us.
  11. The first post has been updated with the link to the scales total for Spring Term. If you're wondering how many scales you earned last term, the link is in the post above this one.
  12. That was Parvati berating Ron. The source for one of best lines from the movie, delivered by a different character in the book:
  13. I liked the discussion on Luna's hare Patronus. It's interesting that the hare is linked to the moon in several cultures. I also hardly think that it is a coincidence that Patronuses show up in this chapter. Cho's swan Patronus is associated with loyalty and strength, which contrasts the behavior of her friend. This doesn't really have anything to do with the book, but I felt it belonged here:
  14. The Slytherin Quidditch Team is playing today! Watch in #quidditch and cheer on the team in #grandstand
  15. In this chapter, a number of Dumbledore’s Army members conjure their Patronuses for the first time. This Pottermore article even discusses five of those Patronuses. Did you learn anything new or interesting? Feel free to add to their interpretations or talk about other Patronuses not mentioned in the article! 10 scales if posted by Sunday 10th March, 23:59 HOL time. 5 scales if posted after that but before Sunday 31st March, 23:59 HOL time.
