  1. We’re nearing the end now! Last, but definitely not least… We’d like to recognize the individuals who make Slytherin stand out. Her scavenger hunts are becoming a tradition in the Dungeons and her Silver Snake exchange is a classic. This year, she made it out to the Quidditch pitch for Slytherin and soldiered through 38 chapters of Order of the Phoenix trivia! The recipient of the Singular Slytherin Award is... Arianna Stonewater! Since joining Slytherin, he has made his presence known, managing to drum up conversations in a normally quiet #slytherin channel on IRC. This year’s Smug Snake is... Dexter York! Whether it is getting into character for a HOL contest, contributing to SerpenTimes and other house newspapers, or jumping fully into Slytherin activities, it’s obvious that these snakes have spirit. With so much to do in Slytherin and HOL, it was simply not possible to pick one person. The Salazar’s Slytherin Spirit Award goes to... Amaryllis Storm, Cody Lewis, and Romilda Jones! Despite all of her other responsibilities on HOL, I’m grateful that my DHoH still finds the time to help out in Slytherin, contributing great ideas for activities. She’s quick to recognize and remedy potential issues, so that we rarely have any. The Serpentine Professor Award is bestowed upon... Prof. Amy Lupin! Not only did he lead the Slytherin Quidditch Team to yet another Quidditch Cup, but he took it upon himself to revive the ever-popular Slytherin Arcade. He orchestrated the reorganization of the Green and Silver teams, kept us busy this winter, and always, always puts Slytherin first. The Award for Special Services to Slytherin is dedicated to... Will Lestrange! Guests are always welcome down here in the Dungeons! We appreciate everyone who visits our common room, participates in our activities, and submits to the SerpenTimes, but only a lucky few have the honor of receiving a Slytherin award. Gryffindor’s Iverian Gnash, Ravenclaw’s Kendra Givens, and Hufflepuff’s Adaleine Shuster are this year’s Lion, Eagle, and Badger in Snake’s Clothing! Congratulations everyone! Thank you for all your contributions to Slytherin! See you in the fall! Mischief Managed
  2. I finally managed to get the Scales spreadsheet to work properly, so, ready or not, here come the totals! First up, the results of the Spring Term Scales Race... In 3rd place, with 755 scales... Arianna Stonewater!! In 2nd place, with 809 scales... Prof. Scarlet Leslie-Lewis!! And in 1st place, with 1027 scales... Will Lestrange!! The Best Hatchling Award is given to the first year student who earns the most scales. This term, that honor goes to Daisy Lafferty!! We love all our non-snake visitors who liven up the Dungeons, but there is one who really likes to collect scales. For Spring Term, the Dweller of the Dungeon is Prof. Tarma Amelia Black with 1017 scales! For all their hard work and contributions to Slytherin, the top ten Slytherin scale earners of the school year receive the Dedicated Snake award. Congratulations to this year's Dedicated Snakes: Will Lestrange - 1895 Prof. Scarlet Leslie-Lewis - 1677 Arianna Stonewater - 1585 Cody Lewis - 931 Amaryllis Storm - 723 Anna Snape - 495 Alexander Barnes-Rogers - 350 Draco Riddle - 340 Daisy Lafferty - 320 Dexter York - 280 The realignment of the Green and Silver Teams did result in a much closer race this year. The Silver Team put up a good fight with a total of 5307 scales. However, that wasn't enough to beat out the winning team. The winner of the 2018-2019 Scales Race with a grand total of 5951 scales is... THE GREEN TEAM!!
  3. Before everyone goes off on their summer rendezvouses, let's take a look back at what everyone has accomplished this year. The Dungeons could have used more hissing, but clearly everyone was hard at work earning points. Take pride in your achievements and... have a biscuit!

  4. After five weeks of intense battling, the Villains were able to overtake the Heroes and gain control of the Emerald Cup by a mere 4 emerald shards! Many thanks to everyone who assisted with the repair of our Emerald Cup: Prof. Tarma Amelia Black --- 280 Will Lestrange --- 230 Iverian Gnash --- 130 Prof. Amy Lupin --- 128 Prof. Scarlet Leslie-Lewis --- 125 Adaleine Shuster --- 110 Arianna Stonewater --- 105 Kendra Givens --- 70 Romilda Jones --- 62 Bull J.

  5. ALL Emerald Cup tasks are due at the end of the day on June 30th! The Villains currently have more emerald shards, but can they maintain the control? Or will the Heroes be able to overcome the deficit in time?
  6. Final IRC activity of this year's Emerald Cup is now complete! 1st - Will Lestrange - 30 emerald shards for Villains 2nd - Prof. Tarma Amelia Black - 25 emerald shards for Heroes Astor Arensin - 5 emerald shards for Villains For those who were unable to make it to the race, here is the puzzle: In an attempt to prevent Thanos from acquiring all of the Infinity Stones, Doctor Strange is using the Time Stone to send his fellow Avengers to different centuries from the 18th to the 22nd century. Each Avenger will take one of the other five Infinity Stones and hide it in a city in a completely different universe, such as Coruscant. 1. Of the Avenger hiding the stone in Atlantis and the one sent to the 20th century, one had the Mind Stone and the other was Scarlet Witch. 2. The one sent to the 22nd century, the one carrying the Soul Stone, and the one hiding a stone in Hogsmeade are all different Avengers. Captain Marvel didn’t have the Reality Stone. 3. The person who went to Hogsmeade was there one century before Iron Man was sent somewhere. The one with the Power Stone was sent two centuries before the Avenger who went to Gotham City. 4. Hawkeye didn’t go to Rivendell. The person with the Space Stone was sent one century before the Avenger who went to Atlantis. 5. Between the person who went to Atlantis and Black Widow, one had the Power Stone and the other was sent to the 18th century.

  11. Pretty good turnout for an impromptu logic puzzle race! 1st - Cody Lewis - 30 emerald shards for Heroes 2nd - Prof. Tarma Amelia Black - 25 emerald shards for Heroes 3rd - Astor Arensin - 20 emerald shards for Villains 4th - Will Lestrange - 15 emerald shards for Villains 5th - Adaleine Shuster - 5 emerald shards for Villains For those who were unable to make it to the race, here is the puzzle: A duelling tournament has been organized for Emerald Cup! Heroes and villains who are interested in participating in the tournament are matched up. They must decide on one weapon to use during the duel. Each duel takes place in a different colored arena. From the clues provided, determine which hero and villain are duelling, their weapon of choice, and the color of the arena. 1. Katniss is facing off against Magneto, but Superman isn’t battling Cersei. Despite his proficiency with swords, that is not the weapon agreed upon for Zorro’s duel. 2. Five different duels involve Loki, Superman, the one using swords, the one in the magenta arena, and Katniss. 3. Either Yoda or Superman is using a wand. Ursula will be in the amber arena. The duel in the magenta arena will feature lightsabers, not bolas. 4. Cersei is duelling in the turquoise arena, not the grey arena. Neither Superman nor Katniss is battling Bellatrix. 5. Yoda, the one in the violet arena, the one with pistols, Aladdin, and Bellatrix are five different duels.

  14. Nope, I'm a Questioner! TWBM is following the women's World Cup.
  15. Lawful Good - Buzz Lightyear (Toy Story) can be counted on to follow through on his mission. The Space Ranger loosens up a bit, but always tries to do the right thing. Neutral Good - Mary Margaret/Snow White (Once Upon a Time) is one of the moral pillars in the series. Chaotic Good - Kazul (The Enchanted Forest Chronicles) fights for the good guys, but dragons are always slightly chaotic by nature. Lawful Neutral - Effie Trinket (The Hunger Games) works for the Capitol, but begins to think for herself. True Neutral - Dr. Hopper/Jiminy Cricket (Once Upon a Time) is, in essence, the personification (or cricketification) of one's conscience. Chaotic Neutral - Vegeta (Dragon Ball Z) pretty much sides with whoever benefits him the most. His temper is quite explosive. Lawful Evil - Rumpelstiltskin (Once Upon a Time) is bound to the limits of the Dark One dagger. Neutral Evil - Walter White (Breaking Bad) started out with good intentions, but eventually becomes consumed with the power and control. Chaotic Evil - Maleficent (Sleeping Beauty) is an evil fairy, capable of turning into a dragon! 20 emerald shards to Villains
  16. I don't know if I'd be worthy enough to hold it, but I'd love to see Excalibur with my own eyes. (Speaking of worthiness, Thor's hammer Mjölnir must be awesome.) There's so much history and legend surrounding Excalibur that it'll be a great experience to be in its presence. Another sword that I think is interesting is the Sword of the Enchanted Forest, since only Kings of the Enchanted Forest can use it. For myself, though, I'd probably go smaller. Swords are powerful weapons, but sometimes difficult to handle. Lila Bard from the Shades of Magic trilogy has the right idea with knives. Ninja stars would also be pretty fun... It would be nice to make my own weapons, so I know the true balance of the item. I'm sure that if I really wanted to, I could learn how to make weapons, but I'd rather leave it up to the masters to minimize mistakes.
  17. My lightsaber is powered by a blue crystal, so it represents the light side. The blue hue helps hone the physical aspect of the Force. I didn't want the hilt to be too cumbersome, so I kept it rather simple. It is made of four parts. The hilt is made of silver alloy, providing some flexibility for the unpredictable. 15 emerald shards to Heroes
