Gryffindor Common Room
Sky Alton

Superlatives! (2016-2017)

Recommended Posts

  We’re gearing up for another amazing school year so what better time to look back on what was awesome about the last one? Or should I say ‘Who’.


  HOL is wonderful but it wouldn’t be the place it is without the people who stroll the castle corridors. So it’s time to remind them just why they’re so tremendous by handing out some completely made up but very shiny prizes! This is wide open for all houses and anyone (students, professors, post graduates, ghosts, even giant squids) is welcome!


  Gryff is giving you a chance to make up your own award for those friends, professors or team mates who make your time on HOL memorable (or maybe even just people you see around now and again who you think deserve an imaginary trophy). You can be as silly, sappy or serious as you like. For instance, for my first presentation, I’d like to award…


Prof. Missa Matz- ‘The Order of the Golden Wader’

 For her fearless traversing of the sapping swamp of tedium that is Common Room Registration approvals.


Post your awards below along with your reasons why (should you want to share them) and I’ll edit them into this post so everyone can see what beautiful, jewel encrusted gongs they’ve received! But folks, please keep your acceptance speeches to 5 minutes maximum, okay?

I apologize. I have been away for quite a while so I do not know many people, but as it goes along, I will add to this.


To Sky Alton I give the: Most AMAZING AWESOME PERSON EVER. - Explanation. She is here in Gryffindor helping to lead and establish new blood and make us GREAT. Which gives her the title of what I just said. Yes, it's ridiculous, but it's true.
