    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.

    I spotted the Boggart in my dorm room. He turned into my alarm clock and I imagined him being a soft pillow and blanket so I could go back to bed :P

    I cannot believe that year one has come to an end already! Nor can I believe that I won't be around here during the summer either :( I suppose we all have to go back the land of Muggles now and again. But, before I do, I wanted to send a big thank you to absolutely everyone who has helped to make this such a fun and safe place to be. Thanks to all of you for making hol my home. Wishing everyone a fabulous summer. Stay safe, be well, be happy <3 x

    2020 is nearly at an end and so is the Autumn term. Most classes will have a final deadline of 15th January but make sure you double check yours so you know for certain when you need to get any last minute assignments sent in by. We're lagging a little behind in that cup race right now so let's start off 2021 right and snag a few extra points if we possibly can. :D If you signed up for Secret Elf, the deadline is drawing near! Remember to get your gift sent off to the organisers at the dedicated activity email before 11:59 PM HOL-time on the 31st of December. Land of the Sweets is also in full swing. Make sure you head over to the main forum to enjoy some of the sweet, festive goodness on offer before January 17th! Go go Gryffindor!

    Ah, so you all have convinced me to return. Much thanks to everyone who has proved to me how much you all really care. I must admit I wouldn’t mind staying in Honeydukes forever though– it’s practically my home after all. Some of you have heard my story, but for those who have not, I believe it is time to reveal my history. When I was young, I loved Hogsmeade. It was one of my favorite places to spend free time and I wanted to live there when I got older. My mother was Gunhilda de Gorsemoor, some of you may recognize that name as the statue that guards the secret passageway to Honeydukes. My mother died when I was young, but that didn’t stop me from making something of myself. I started a business in 1641 with the money I inherited, before the passageway existed of course. Finally, I lived and worked in Hogsmeade. Between my business and daily life, I fell in love with none other than Prof. Xavier D’Angelo – the late headmaster. He went on to become headmaster and I went on to become a successful businesswoman, but there was still a way we were able to see each other from time to time. Remember that passage behind my mother’s statue? If you haven’t guessed it yet, we would sneak through it to spend some time with each other. I used to bring brightly coloured boxes full of Honeydukes sweets (Chocolate Frog anyone?) to many a student and staff while my business was in full bloom. I loved cheering them up with my confections. I also made use of my cooking knowledge to shower the house elves with delicious new recipes for desserts and sweets which they have incorporated in many of your meals. Yes, you have me to thank for those confectionary delights. I knew even in death I would want to have my memory restored in Hogsmeade, the village I held so dear, and in Honeydukes, the business I created, and so, my portrait resides there which some of you exceptional students were so clever to figure out. Perhaps a list of Honeydukes themed passwords is in order for the week? As a reward for all of your hard work, I have asked your prefect to award everyone shiny rubies for their efforts. Those you will now see on your ruby counts. If you believe yourself not to have the correct amount, go find your prefect, I have passwords to create. Now, for all of those students who so cleverly found me, I have also added a shiny award to your award shelves. Much thanks to everyone! Now I’m heading back to my usual portrait to clean it up and find out how much a mess you all made while I was away.

    Joke Of The Day Prof. McGonagall: Mr. Pettigrew, where is Mr. Black? Peter: Sirius is doing stuff. Prof. McGonagall: And where is Mr. Potter? Peter: James is stopping Sirius from doing stuff. Prof. McGonagall: What about Mr. Lupin? Peter: Remus is stopping James from stopping Sirius from doing stuff. Prof. McGonagall: Then why are you here, Mr. Pettigrew? Peter: I am supposed to stop you from stopping Remus from stopping James from stopping Sirius from doing stuff.

    Was funny so decided to share with you all... *A conversation between Sirius Black and Prof. McGonagall, in her office* Prof. McGonagall: I asked you if you were involved in that prank. Were you lying to me? Sirius: That depends on how you define lying. Prof. McGonagall: I define it as not telling the truth. How do you define it? Sirius: As to be in a horizontal or resting position on a supporting surface. Prof. McGonagall: Sirius: Prof. McGonagall: Get out of my office. Sirius: With pleasure.

    One new outfit for The Fat Lady consists of a red short-sleeved top made of silk with a matching skirt. She's got a new gold choker necklace (many strands woven together so it looks like a rope of gold). She's got some red roses circling her forehead and dark sunglasses with red heart frames. Her lipstick is a matching red, of course, and the finishing touch are dangle ruby-drop earrings. Her hair is dyed a midnight blue and pulled back into a quasi-ponytail -- to go along with her new outfit.

    As my first year at HOL comes to close I want to thank everyone being kind. I was nervous about start here because am deaf. Sometime new people be not nice to deaf person. Everyone here is nice. As some might notice for while my post in activity were longer and could do puzzle without help. That because sister help. Sister and self have decided need to be independent. Sister is having very busy term next year finish university. Start independent here and work into personal life independent. So may need more help in HOL from others. I will stay long time if don't mind help sometime. Thanks Sky and Ivey and Tarma for great help and be patient.

    It’s my privilege and pleasure to announce the Gryffindor awards for the autumn term! Before I begin, I just have to say that this was the most difficult term to judge I’ve had since joining the staff (and I’m not just saying that to be polite). We currently have so many talented, enthusiastic and hardworking lions that it was a struggle to narrow it down. If you missed out on an award this term, please don’t be disheartened: trust me, we see and value each and every one of you who contributes or makes an effort to brighten up the CR. If you keep it up, hopefully we’ll be honouring you with a shiny trophy next term. Let’s start with our points based awards: The Platinum Quill award goes to @Iverian Gnash! This award goes to the Gryffindor who earned the most house points and with a staggering 2278 (509 points ahead of the 2nd place earner), Iverian absolutely knocked it out of the park this term. The Phoenix Award goes to @Lora Wallabenger! This award is given to the Gryffindor with the highest number of rubies and with a solid 277 earned over many of our activities this term, Lora is a very worthy winner. The Lionheart award goes to @Maxim Trevelyan! This award is given to the visitor with the highest number of rubies. Yet again, our friend from Ravenclaw has shown he is the master at gathering sparkly red jewels as he racked up a staggering 927 for his efforts over the course of the term. Congratulations! Now for the awards decided by Gryffindor Staff: The Studious Simba award goes to @Lizzi Long and @Narcissus Delmenia! We award this trophy to those lions who distinguish themselves through hard work in their classes and potentially in other places. We couldn’t pick between Lizzi (who earned 1189 points) and Narcissus (1142) and decided that both deserved recognition for their truly impressive performances. The Curious Kitten award goes to @Lora Wallabenger! This award is for someone who has been an encouraging, constructive or heartening presence in the CR. Lora went out of her way to welcome newcomers to The Den this term and has certainly raised our spirits with her exuberant personality and undeniable spirit. The Consistent Cub award goes to @Lorainia Riverrider! This award is for a lion who is everywhere, doing everything and inspires us all to get involved. Lorainia not only earned 1339 points (the third most points out of all Gryffindor this term), but has also found the time to throw herself into activities all around the castle. Not only has she inspired us with her activity but left many of us wondering just where she gets her energy from. The Lively Lionet goes to @Raevia Ward! This award is for someone who displays great pride and loyalty to the house. While she might not be the loudest or top in points, Raevia has been a friendly and diligent presence throughout the term. Her courage to try new things and her positive attitude reflect well not only on her but on Gryffindor too. The Exploding Snap award goes to @Prof. Dario Brighton! This award is given to someone who makes the CR a better place through their innovative ideas. As Dario essentially keeps the CR (and all of HOL) running, we’re always trying to nominate him for this award. As he designed the scoring system and beautiful cards for our wildly successful Exploding Snap activity, set up webmail and built a new website for the house newspaper, we couldn’t let him turn it down this term. That’s it for awards for now but I just want to reiterate how proud we all are of everyone who did their bit to support the house. Keep up the amazing work, lions!

    I've been watching a lot of movies and series during the summer holidays this time. Muggles see them on Amazon Prime and Netflix. If anyone needs a suggestion for what to watch, just ask me. Or Manya.

    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.
