  1. To paraphrase Hamlet: mottos, mottos, mottos. Get them in! (Or else be subjected to even more of my literary nerdiness)

  2. Ready for Gryfftoberfest 2018? Go enter the motto contest!

  3. It's nearly time! who's excited for the autumn term?

      Hogwarts, Hogwarts, Hoggy Warty Hogwarts,
      Teach us something please,
      Whether we be old and bald,
      Or young with scabby knees,
      Our heads could do with filling,
      With some interesting stuff,
      For now they're bare and full of air,
      Dead flies and bits of fluff,
      So teach us things worth knowing,
      Bring back what we've forgot,
      Just do your best, we'll do the rest,
      And learn until our brains all rot

      I would like that Sky. Cause I would love to see if this kind of class I had in mind would work really well or not.

      I know! Too many awesome classes and too little time.

      You mean we're made of something other than cotton candy and fire?

      Oddly enough I think there are other things beneath the layers of flaming sugar...;)

  17. Absolutely loving the CR's makeover! Thank you Dario, just don't forget to put the sledge hammer and wrecking ball safely away, will you? ;)

      It looks really good, indeed! :)

  18. Want to tell someone how great they are? Go make them an award in our superlatives thread!

  19. Graduated! Kim, can I join the party? :D

  20. As well as participating in our sensational  TBTB contest, you can also help Gryff horde points for next term! Head over to the Hol Forum and check out the Bookclub's Philosopher's Stone activity-90 points would be a great way to start the next school year.

  22. It's Hol Writing Month!  Words, worlds, fun and points!!! (Did I mention precious shiny, shiny points?). Join in and solve the ancient mystery of why a Lion is like a writing desk....

  23. Yayyyyy!!! Thank you Dario! *scampers off to frolic around the shiny CR*

  24. 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

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

    1. Prof. Tarma Amelia Black

      Prof. Tarma Amelia Black

      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!
