  1. Hi Willow. Thanks for stopping by! Welcome to The Den
  2. Approved April Marigold - Hufflepuff Visitor
  3. Before we can start Gryfftoberfest in October, we need a motto! Head to the announcements forum for details of this years contest and remember to get all your creations in by 11:59 PM HOL-time on 20 September.
  4. Mmm, I definitely think a group trip to Flourish and Blots is in order. There's just something so hushed and magical about book shops (well, maybe not when Gilderoy Lockhart is doing a signing....). I could just spend hours admiring the glossy covers and smelling that new book smell. Weird? Me? Never!

  10. The class list is incredible this year. That's great in that there's plenty of excellent choices.... but it also makes it even more of a challenge to trim your choices down to 5 or less. ;) So, have you managed it yet? What are you taking? Any you're particularly excited about?

  13. until
    Join us for the loudest, bravest party out there! All Gryffindors and visitors are invited to come and celebrate everything scarlet and gold during the month-long festival that is Gryfftoberfest. The theme will be announced nearer the time and our traditional motto contest will be making its triumphant return so make sure you keep an eye out for that.
  14. You hurry towards the castle steps, your mind already on getting into the warm and tucking into some food after the long journey aboard the Hogwarts Express. Bump! You stop dead as you crash into a wall of people. There’s a huge crowd gathered around the castle’s front steps. You try to back up but the people behind you make it difficult. You hear a great commotion and then there’s a flash, bang and an eruption of pink and silver sparks. The Situation: Peeves the poltergeist has decided to celebrate the start of term by not letting anyone in (or out) of the castle’s main doors. He’s flinging dung bombs, magical fireworks and all sorts of other projectiles at the head of anyone (student or professor) who gets anywhere near the steps if they can’t guess his ever-changing password. Remember to duck! Location: You may roleplay around the front steps of Hogwarts castle. If you’re able to get past Peeves (who will be popping into the thread from time to time), then you can proceed to the entrance hall if he let’s you through. Big if! Remember to read the guidelines before diving in. Have fun!
  15. Approved Sage Locket - First Year Chi Potter - First Year Agnes Greengrass - First Year Ruby Swan - First Year Notes Edith Brubble - I changed your name to @Edith Grubble to match your HOL name and you were approved as a first year Evan_G20 - I changed your name to @Evan Gikas to match your HOL name and you were also approved as a first year.
  16. The easiest way to help out your house and show your lion’s pride is to earn points! There are lots of ways you can do this so you’re bound to find some that play to your strengths. In this post, I’ll give you a brief run-down of the regular point earning opportunities available to you. Whenever a new one opens up throughout the term, we’ll post it as a reply so keep checking back! The first and most obvious is to take part in classes. Most classes will give you the chance to earn 60 points a month through homework and extra credit. If you take several classes (even if you don’t have the time for the maximum of 5 every term), those 60 points soon mount up to quite a tidy haul. Class sign-up opens on 1st September 2021 and will remain open until December 20th so remember to put your name down for the classes that interest you and get sending in that homework! (It’s always a good idea to keep an eye on the individual assignment deadlines so that you don’t run out of time or put too much pressure on yourself) The next are the creative projects offered each month by the Library and art departments. If you enjoy getting artsy or brushing up on your writing, visit the 'Departments' tab on the main website. Don't be shy: your submissions are anonymous during the rating period. You can get started by going to your profile and telling everyone 'How you Got Into Harry Potter' in the designated section - that will earn you a cool 10 points! Finally there's the HOL Newspaper. This is a great chance to earn plenty of points by writing about what interests you. If articles and reviews aren’t your thing, it will also offer creative prompts and the chance to submit your own puzzles, graphics and more. Keep an eye on the Newspaper section of the main HOL Forum for updates about the latest issue. https://hol.org.uk/forum/viewforum.php?f=612 Throughout the term, there will be unique and exciting activities to take part in which will give you the chance to earn points along the way. Remember to check the replies to this thread for announcements and reminders about anything that might be occurring!
  17. Rejected Vera Minerdore - Unfortunately I couldn't find you in the HOL database. Sara Finch and Wendy Anderson - Please have another try and make sure the email address you use matches the one linked to your account on the main HOL website.
  18. Welcome to another school year here at HOL and in Gryffindor Tower! I can’t wait to see what the year has in store for us all. I hope you’ll all join us on an adventure or two we have planned... If you’re new to The Den (our nickname for the Common Room), stop by the ‘Welcome to Gryffindor’ thread to get a lowdown of everything that happens in the house. https://gryff.net/index.php?/topic/3348-welcome-to-gryffindor/ Join in on the latest roleplay, throw yourself into games in Peeves’ Place or join the discussions in the Fat Lady’s Portrait. We’ll be starting preparations for our annual Gryfftoberfest celebrations very soon so keep an eye out for the traditional motto contest in a couple of weeks. Whatever you get up to this year: try new things, do your best and, most importantly, have fun!
