  1. Thank you for the activity, Sky and Iverian! I do love owls ....
  2. I got some wind-blown branches from large evergreen trees and fastened them together in such a way that they make a multi-level and fragrant perch for the owls to rest upon. The different textures and thicknesses of the branches provide a comfortable and secure footing for the various kinds of owls and the feathery needles of the clusters of the tree leaves gives a semblance of what they would encounter in nature (and if they wish, a form of disguise so they can blend in and not be seen so easily). The branches are spaced such that they can be flown in between, just like in natural trees. All of this is hoisted up off the ground, fairly close to the ceiling, by a levitating charm.
  3. One sample of wrapping paper simply changes colors. A person can choose a color that the giftee really likes, and all variations of that color will show up on the wrapping paper, rippling like water. The second sample is a bit more ornate, in that the paper itself will 'contain' the package (or gift) but it changes appearance from just flat wrapping paper to actually having the shape of square-ish or oval-ish shaped creatures and 'things'. For example, the package might start out looking sort of flat and rectangular and then of a sudden it looks more like the body of a tortoise.
  4. gif is of owl flying towards the viewer and approaching with talons unfolding and extended as if to grab something Name: Fierce Breed: mixed - horned owl and unknown Greatest achievement: Specializes in deliveries to places that the other owls prefer not to venture Delivery stats: yes -- packages always delivered and nearly always in one piece Likes: Cherry toffees, owl nuts and pizza. In the dangerous areas of picking up parcels (and also delivering to dangerous areas), Fierce likes the plummeting approach and dives down with his legs extended 'down'. Then, when getting close to the package, opens his talons up to grab whatever it is. When delivering packages to dangerous places, he dives in, close, and drops the package (hence always delivered and nearly always in one piece). Dislikes: black licorice, horn-rimmed glasses Of interest: Fierce loves to be scratched on his neck, right behind his head
  5. Happy Birthday, Lorainia! I wish for you a day of wonder and magic. That you have every day.
  6. I'm very glad you are back, Fat Lady! It was fun exploring in here, and doing all kinds of things. :) Thank you for the rubies and the shiny!
  7. Tarma walked into the library, really wanting to get some reference material for an odd thing she'd been noticing. She didn't get spooked very easily, but lately, just sometimes, she'd see a person who had what looked like two shadows. She'd looked for the sources of light which might be causing the two shadows, but never saw anything which could account for it. So, she thought - "I'll go to the library. If nothing else, Madam Pince will know where to find information on that!". However, walking in, she noticed ... the person in front of her had two shadows. Carefully, she walked around that person, toward the center of the room, and looked for Madam Pince.

  9. Snape. Always. ..... Actually, because he probably learned DADA everything and also because he'd be angry at Malfoy. Padma Patil or Lavender Brown?
  10. Oh, that's hard! Katie Bell. She's acquired even more attitude after being cursed by the necklace (and was a Chaser right off, not a reserve, which maybe means Alicia would 'give way' to Katie subconsciously). Zacharias Mumps or Goodwin Kneen?
  11. I take guard from Scarlet and whack that bludger out of the ballpark through the open window and into the castle grounds! A hovering cloud of Biting Fairies is drifting its way towards the door.
  12. Draco - because he's learned a lot of charms, hexes and curses, and would probably be more willing to use them than Ron. Who would win between Xenophilius Lovegood or Yaxley?
  13. Avatar (picture of Distant Drums rose) Siggy with Motto below Gryfftoberfest 2020 - Mischief (will be) Managed

  17. Darren O'Hare because (again like George and Fred) he might be a little more patient, as evinced by his invention of the Hawkshead Attacking Formation whereas Roderick Plumpton likes to get things done quickly (shown by his 3 1/2 second capture of the Snitch in 1921). Crup or Kneazle?
  18. I take guard from Scarlet and ... pick up the Pygmy Puff and put her in a large pocket in my cloak so she is safe and sound and I'll find out with whom she belongs later. I see a Crup which was maybe chasing after the Pygmy Puff and charging this way.

  20. The Bloody Baron Sir Patrick Delaney-Podmore The Bloody Baron. Maybe he'd bore Sir Patrick to death with his groaning and clanking. Okay okay, Sir Patrick is already dead but the thought is there! Lavender Brown or Susan Bones?
  21. I take guard from Rose and throw some woodlice to the far right side along the corridor. I see Professor Flitwick approaching ...

  23. This was lots of fun -- thank you Sky, Adaleine and Professor Decibel. I loved looking into all kinds of Theatricals - magic and Muggle. :)
