  3. EEEEEE!!!  Look look!  \o/   EEEEEE!!! Welcome back Gryffindor Common Room!  \o/

  4. What do you get when you cross a lion with a guard dog? ...A terrified Postman. (Too bad not to share)

      I'd be lion if I said that wasn't justified

  5. Waiting for the Gryffindor Common Room to finish its reparo?  Come to the Book Club at the HOL main forum! We're discussing Hunger Games!  May the force be with you!

      We didn't veto them, Sky. We just hid them from you because you were talking about making Nightlock Berry Smoothies for DINNER.  That is just so inappropriate. They are a BREAKFAST drink!

      But but but but, they eat stew for breakfast in the Capitol....

      ... That's NOT the point!

  6. Randomly struck by how lovely the word leonine is. Say it with me....leonine.

      It is, isn't it.  But now I realize I've never said it out loud -- just read it! So how does one pronounce leonine?  Sort of like I never knew how to say Hermione until I heard it in the movie.  I think I was saying it, in my head, Herm-E-on. Ooops.  :)

      I believe it's Lee-on-nine (though I've heard some people say neen). My friend's dad read HP aloud to her and to this day she finds it weird hearing people pronouncing Slytherin as 'slither-in' because apparently he said it very differently!

  7. Yo, lirking Lions, harry Potter Book Festival over at the Bookclub on the hol forum, be there! (Well...if you want...and who wouldn't want more of my questionable humour?)

  8. "I've lost them!" "Your marbles?" "The Deathly Hallows!"-the chaos that ensues from trying to put HP charms on an incredibly fiddly bracelet.

  9. Super Bowl : Atlanta vs New England




  10. sent and done.
  11. All the info you needs at the top of this thread, Zach :D (Below where it says 'step 3...' and then the due date is right at the bottom where it says 'send all ...'). Hope that helps!
  12. When do I have to turn this in ? What are the rules ? And who do I turn it in to?
  13. Sure!
  14. if okay Professor, can I do a review of the Super Bowl matchup ?
  15. Yes to both! I'm looking forward to reading them!
  16. Could I do a review/personal blog about my experience going to the 2017 U.S. Figure Skating Championships? I'd also like to do a story, if that's alright :)
  17. Paw Print Article complete, just a story to magic up now! Anyone got a quick quotes quill handy?
