    I've never actually had a surprise party thrown for me. Do you still have to act surprised even though you kno it's coming? And I totally agree, Kalina, you are never to old to pretend to delicately sip tea while eating far too much cake.

    Mine is on the 16th of March. It's usually pretty cold, so I don't get to go do any fun outdoor type parties. This year I am having a tea party. Never too old for one.

    Well, that was one fantastic match! If you missed it....how dare you! We had a formidable team to go against, what is considered the best team in the league, SQT. I want to go ahead and give mad props to Patrick James who scored against this amazingly scary Slytherin team. He deserves so much praise and accolades for scoring. But not just him, the whole Gryffindor Quidditch Team gave their all against this crazy talented Slytherin Team. Don't worry, though. This is not the last game of the season. Stay tuned for announcements about future games! Also, if you are interested in joining the Gryffindor Quidditch Team, contact Jenny Lupin. We are looking for new players. Don't be intimidated at all or apprehensive. We all started somewhere, basically at the bottom (like me), and now we are legends. Make your mark for the Gryffindor House! I look forward to seeing you at the next match, if not playing in the next match! Much love, Prof. Zenix James.

    Hey there guys. My name is Marie. I'm 27 years old. I have ALWAYS wanted to be able to actually do some sort of school work based off of this marvelous and magical world that has been created for us. This website gives me the opportunity to do that and I could not be happier :)

    My siblings and I made these adorable snowmen. My little sister decided to go all out with a hat which will keep hers very warm. I added lots of color to mine (mine is the one with the eyebrows that went terribly wrong LOL). My brother added a Gryffindor scarf to his and my youngest bro gave his big black eyes so he could see everything that was going on :D

    First thing first before I jump into the Perfect Day option *hops on chair to attract attention* THANKS SKY, PROF. LUPIN, AND PROF. LESLIE-LEWIS FOR SUCH AN AWESOME EVENT!!! :D Now, *hops off of chair* my perfect day at the lodge would consist of sleeping in, number one :P After that, I’d have some hot tea and sit by the fire before grabbing a friend and putting on all of our gear. We’d probably, in the mayhem of this, *screams at unsuspecting people “where’s my jacket! Did you take my jacket?!* gather a few more friends to go with us until we have a good sized group. After we have all suited up, we’d hit the slopes. Of course, we would start out with Beginner, or, maybe, we’ll go for Expert Advanced *runs to a practically drop down cliff with a Black Diamond sign, “this looks good”* After falling off our skis for a good two hours, we will all head back to the lodge where Sky will hand us all hot chocolate (Thanks, Sky! :D). Together, we will sit by the fire and I will make a big announcement while some of us fight over who won Monopoly in the corner. “Now, everyone! I knows it’s freezing, but I have knitted everyone fluffy mittens! *hands out assorted pairs of mittens to everyone* If anyone would also like a warm hat, I can also whip up one in your color choice, so just let me know!” Then, I would head to the game room where the Monopoly fight has finally begun to wrap itself up with money flying across the room and a player insulting the other’s train playing piece (your moves don’t count, because a train obviously needs a track to move, so I win!). I will steer myself away from this fight even though my inner self is screaming to get involved. I will instead join a friend at a cozy table to play the Game of Life. Looking forward to dinner and maybe a scavenger hunt closer to bed (because I took and hid Prof. Zenix’s snow boots). Well, this should be an interesting day!

    I slap Dario because I can as if he puts me in detention for it, he'll have to clean up after Gryfftoberfest himself.

    Just taking a peek around! Hi! Feel free to message me or direct me to a fun thread here in Gryffindor or in the main forum :) I'm a 22 year old coffee addict with a love for tea, I love books, audio and physical. Lately I'm a huge fan of Lady Sherlock Holmes by Sherry Thomas and fun magic books aimed at middle schoolers :D I love traveling and have been to Europe once, when I was a fresh faced 20 year old. Now I'm traveling in my home country (USA) when I can, and I'm saving up to buy a house! :P I'm still new to HOL so everything is still new and shiny and at least a little bit intimidating. I look forward to getting to know people.

    HOL is hoisting the mainsail and taking to the seas for a school-wide game of Battle Ship. There are plenty of points to be earned so be sure to check out the 'Battle Ships' section of the main forum for details. Don't worry if you don't have a team, you can sign up as an individual and be matched with a crew. Deadline for Sign-ups: January 4th The Serpentimes is still open for submissions so curl up with your keyboard and get writing on the theme of hibernation (or anything else you feel like contributing, of course). Remember their exclusives are a fun, easy way to snag some extra points. Deadline: 15th January Quick Update: As of this morning, there were 3 Gryffs in the top 10 of the point Earners list, Keep up the amazing work you guys!
