      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...;)

  13. 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? ;)

  16. 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.

  18. 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....

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

  20. 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

  21. 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!

  22. 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?)

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

  24. Paw Print Article complete, just a story to magic up now! Anyone got a quick quotes quill handy?

  25. In the jungle, the mighty jungle...
