    The Platinum Quill Award This award is presented to the Gryffindor who has earned the most points in a term. With over 3000 points to her name from this term alone, @Iverian Gnash is an exceedingly worthy winner! The Phoenix Award This prize is for the lion who has managed to earn the most rubies during the term. @Iverian Gnash is our winner again with an impressive 350 rubies! Lionheart Award Awarded to whichever of our guests has earned the most rubies throughout the term. We have a tie this time around as reigning champion @Maxim Trevelyan of Ravenclaw is joined by @Prof. Tarma Amelia Black of Hufflepuff -- they both earned a staggering 480 rubies. Well done both! Awards decided by the staff: Studious Simba Awarded to a lion who has distinguished themselves through hard work in their classes and potentially in other areas too. @Lorainia Riverrider has not only proved herself time and again in classes and activities but demonstrated true Gryffindor tenacity while doing so. Curious Kitten This is awarded to a particularly enthusiastic Gryffindor who has been a positive presence in The Den. We’re delighted to present this award to @Emerald Wolvenhowl for her sunny attitude and constant encouragement and appreciation of those around her. Consistent Cub Awarded to a lion who is everywhere doing everything and inspires us all to get involved. We’re very glad to present this one to @Carrie Warts for her willingness to dive into just about anything around HOL with passion and a light heart. Lively Lionet This is awarded to someone whose house pride and loyalty sets them apart. Since joining, @Isa Vestal has proved her nerve by leaving no room in the castle unexplored and has made sure the scarlet and gold is gloriously represented in every activity she attempts. The Friend of the Den Award This is awarded to a non-Gryffindor who has gone out of their way to lend a hand to the lions. We would like to present this award to @Prof. Amy Lupin for her years of unwavering support behind the scenes and in particular her generosity in extending her puzzle and graphic making expertise so that certain Gryff activities could go ahead.

    As candy and sweets are the theme in this month's paw print, it gave me a sweet idea. Wouldn't it be cool to have a part of the castle to ourselves as a sort of candy creation corner? Here we could create new sweets and candies that have never been made before or we could use a Muggle sweet and zap a bit of magic into it. What sort of confectionery would you make? You can make what ever candy you like from something delicious to totally quirky. The world is your sweet oyster. Mine is a boiled sweet called a Rainbow Swirl. As it melts, it alternates its flavours one at a time, going through a pattern of sweet pink apple and sharp orange; tangy lemon and sweet strawberry; red grape and blueberry bubblegum. You can tell if someone has eaten one of these because they are surrounded by a bright, sparkly glow of rainbow colours which lasts about five minutes. If you are trying to keep a low profile at anytime, you may want to avoid this sweet.

    Why does Voldemort prefer Twitter to Facebook? Because he only has followers, not friends *ouch*

    Thanks! Here's another joke: Wormtail: "Master, can you really rise again?" Voldemort: "Certainly, but you'll need to give me a hand."

    (Bet that got your attention... ;)) We’re so close to the end of term now! Gryffindor is holding steady in third place and I can’t tell you how utterly amazing that is. For years we’ve come in last but this year, with all your hard work and lion’s pride, we have the power to change that in a big way. But we can’t rest on our laurels. It’s up to all of us to ensure that Gryffindor finishes as strongly as possible. So come on, Gryffies! Let’s keep turning in that homework, getting those last minute department submissions in on time and writing for the house newspapers. Remember, you have until the 14th for the departments, the 15th for SerpenTimes and the 21st for our own Paw Print. Make sure you check out the ‘Point Earning Opportunities’ thread for more details. We’re doing brilliantly but we have to keep that up until the very last second. Everyone and everything can make a difference so even if your contribution feels small, it matters. Let’s go, Gryffindor, let’s go!

    I spotted the boggart in our potions class. It turned into a horrific clown and tried to dump the whole content of potion on me. I finally casted the spell successfully and it turned into a frog with clown makeup on making me laugh so hard and topple my potion cauldron on to the floor.

    Department of Mysteries, for sure! Forests just aren’t my thing and I’d be pretty scared of running into some poisonous or dangerous thing in there. Would you rather: eat a pound of liver-flavored Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Beans or a pound of bogey-flavored Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Beans?

    my favourite is walking dead and game of thrones and my all time favourite is two and a half men

    One of my all time favourites is Netflix's The Crown. It follows the life of the Queen and the royal family since her marriage to Prince Phillip. I particularly enjoy the fidelity to true events in the plot. Of course, it being a TV drama series, there are things that had to be altered, but I feel that was done in moderation compared to other "based on true events" series. It's rumoured to be the most expensive TV series ever produced, as the team is really detail-oriented. I'm impatiently awaiting the third season which is scheduled to air later this year. They've had to create a larger gap between the second and third seasons since they replace the cast every two seasons. They have announced a total of six seasons where the final would lead up to the present day.

    I love Gilmore Girls, Brooklyn 99 and The Musketeers as well. The Big Bang Theory is my go-to show if I want to have something on in the background. One of our Gryffs (Ilona) suggested I watch Star Trek so I'm making my way through all the various series in chronological order and having a lot of fun. I also enjoy Doctor Who (particularly the David Tennant era) so I think it's safe to say I like shows that are funny and or adventurous.

    Of currently running shows, I definitely like Stranger Things as well, The Handmaids Tale, but my faves are Star Trek Discovery, Outlander and Game of Thrones. I'm a sucker for scifi/fantasy. I also watch The Walking Dead, but I'm thinking about stopping, cause it just depresses me when they keep killing characters I get attached to... <_< Other series I've loved are Downton Abbey, The Pacific, Star Trek Next Generation, Avatar The Last Airbender, Friends, Sherlock, The Office.
