      I just wanted to say that since joining hol as an 'ickle firstie' in September, I have had such a great time and learned such a lot. Thank you so much to profs, prefects, students of all houses and everyone who make hol such a great and safe place to be, and for all the time, effort and commitment that is always put into it.

      Aww, thank you, Emerald. It's always lovely when someone notices and acknowledges the care that a lot of people put in to keep things ticking over. HOL wouldn't be HOL without people enjoying it and making that work worthwhile though so by being here and valuing what's on offer, you're contributing hugely too.

  9. Remember you have just under a week to join in with Exploding Snap! Come have fun, earn rubies and blow stuff up! (And by stuff I mean cards and not any of Dario's priceless antiques.... obviously)

      On  a totally unrelated note, if students who are talented at casting reparo could make themselves known to me, that would be fabulous.

  10. Remember it's your last chance to earn rubies today!

  11. It's nearly the end of term! Make sure you know your deadlines, folks. It's never too late to achieve. Go lions!

  12. There are over 285 extra house points for the earning around the castle right now! Head over to Madam Pince's board to learn how to get your paws on them. Let's go, Gryffindor, let's go!

  13. Remember all your creature related tasks are due tomorrow!

  14. Attention! There are creatures loose in the castle! This is not a drill (or an April Fools for that matter). Help us get them home and earn some rubies into the bargain.

  15. Class sign-ups are open! Go Do Gryffindor proud, learn all you can and bring home lots of points (don't forget the points)

  16. Remember to get your Scavenger Hunt answers and Gone Questing responses in before midnight HOL-time tonight! Last chance to bag yourself some rubies before the term ends.

  17. Putting the finishing touches on Decembers fun. Get ready to head to the ski slopes!

  18. To paraphrase Hamlet: mottos, mottos, mottos. Get them in! (Or else be subjected to even more of my literary nerdiness)

  19. Ready for Gryfftoberfest 2018? Go enter the motto contest!

  20. It's nearly time! who's excited for the autumn term?

      Hogwarts, Hogwarts, Hoggy Warty Hogwarts,
      Teach us something please,
      Whether we be old and bald,
      Or young with scabby knees,
      Our heads could do with filling,
      With some interesting stuff,
      For now they're bare and full of air,
      Dead flies and bits of fluff,
      So teach us things worth knowing,
      Bring back what we've forgot,
      Just do your best, we'll do the rest,
      And learn until our brains all rot

      I would like that Sky. Cause I would love to see if this kind of class I had in mind would work really well or not.

  24. Fun and games on IRC at 5 PM HOL-Time! Come join us in #gamesroom: it's the perfect chance to mingle with other HOLers. Even if you're totally new to IRC, it would be a great time to stick a toe in.

  25. Go dive in to our seasonal 'Choose Your Own Adventure' activity! There's a whole castle full of party preparations for you to explore.
