Basilisk (11/11)

  1. Wait....are you sure we should promote all of them? <<ducks>> Ok, joking, joking! Congratulations everyone! Well done!
  2. Congratulations, everyone! It's so wonderful to see so much activity and so many people receiving awards! 💚
  3. I cannot believe another term has practically come to a close! It's been an exceptional one, I think. I survived my home life, and I'm still a Prefect. I adore our three Promising Students and know they'll continue do even more amazing things next term. I've met some others who I really think are doing really, really well. Next term should be as busy as ever! My dear Prefect-in-Crime, Emily and I have made it our goal to continue supporting HOL and Slytherin and racking up points. I believe Aurelia and Hannah are in on this as well 😁 This is way off topic,, but currently my biggest decision is trying to decide between a 5 gallon tank with a Betta, a 20 gallon tank with Dalmation Mollies, or a 20 gallon tank with fancy Guppies.......
  4. June has ended, and we've not only reached the end of the spring term, we've made it to the end of the school year, and your hard work is shining through! Quite a few Snakes worked very hard this month, and it shows: our Top 10 list even included 2 ties! Wthout further ado, it's time to celebrate the top ten point earners for Slytherin during the month of June! 10. Maeve Madden - 420 (tie) 10. Augusta Daedalus - 420 (tie) 9. Lucia Dinapoli - 434 8. Mily Pumarino - 457 Prof. Scarlet Leslie-Lewis - 475 7. Brianna Caedmon - 611 6. Daria Summers - 612 5. Hannah Lovegood - 625 4. Edeline Koldings - 664 3. Aurelia West - 757 (tie) 3. Louis Walles - 757 (tie) Prof. Will Lestrange - 907 2. Emily Spencer - 1127 1. February Fortescue - 1822 Because each Snake can only earn this award once each term, I had to bypass a couple of previous winners and a Professor, who is ineligible. Despite that, our most ambitious Snakes and winners of the Sagacious Slytherin award for the month of June is a tie! 😀 Aurelia West and Louis Walles each earned an exceptional 757 points! Spectacular work, Aure and Louis ! Simply amazing work this month, Snakes!
  5. Brabas! Thanks to the participation of all you wonderful witches and wizards, the gem snatcher has been discovered! It is none other than the Lethifold Brabas, Slytherin's very own house pet! While we are not quite sure why Brabas stole those gems - the most popular theories seem to be either for his own adornment or for the adornment of the lady cloak he loves - what we know for sure is that Green Team Basil has earned 1489.5 scales, while Silver Team Brabas has earned 970 scales, making Basil the victor in this dispute! This year's Emerald Cup was truly a team effort, and I would like to thank each and every Snake for taking an active part and making this activity the joyful experience it truly was! Thanks go out to: Prof. Scarlet Leslie-Lewis, Prof. Will Lestrange, Emily Spencer, Aurelia West, Louis Walles, and Lucia Dinapoli. I would also like to thank every one of you for taking the time to participate in this activity! There were 20 wonderful HOLers who helped nab the gem snatcher! Well done, everyone! 3 people earned over 200 scales: Prof. Will Lestrange, Prof. Tarma Amelia Black, and Aurelia West 2 people successfully answered all 30 trivia questions in under 24 hours: Prof. Scarlet Leslie-Lewis and Prof. Will Lestrange. Bravo! See you next June!

  8. I think the evidence is clear: Brabas stole those gems, and he did it all for love! What's a Lethifold to do when he encounters a gorgeous cloak he'd like to share his life with? Why, he obtains the most beautiful gemstones he can find and adds them to the cloak for adornment. Males have been giving gems to females for countless centuries, and Brabas is no exception.
  9. I think what really stands out to me most is how so many of the witnesses tell different stories and each place Basil and Brabas at different places during the time of the crime, but they're all certain that's what the Basilisk or Lethifold was really doing! I mean, everyone can't be telling the truth, right?
  10. I've recently become addicted to Mahjong. If anyone isn't familiar with it, you simply match tiles and try to clear the board. I've downloaded an app on my phone that has 5 daily challenges, with the games being labeled easy, medium, or hard. My biggest challenges are the speed matches, because I like to take my time. I need to look up the meanings of the individual tiles. I've resorted to giving some nicknames, such as N, People, Cycle, Plane, etc. because I have no idea what they represent.
