Calling All Selkies!


12:09 pm - Vicki



The Hogwarts Lake has seen better days, and careless students have tossed one too many items into its now murky surface. However, there is a group emerging to protest, and it's not one of the students. The Merchieftainess Murcus is pleading with us all, and is rallying for something to be done. The Merpeople and various aquatic life are suffering, and it's up to everyone to petition and spread the word.

As a token of appreciation, a brand new action item has been created, thanks to the amazing Hannah, and by using it you receive one extra dive into the infamous cave. Every entry will receive a Pebble From the Cave, and be eligible for even more amazing prizes.
Will you take a stand? Head on over to Diagon Alley for our contest, Calling All Selkies!

We are now exploring Babbitty Rabbitty and her Cackling Stump as part of our Five Fables event. Before we move on to the Tale of Three Brothers, there's still time to write your origin drabbles or watch some of the (rather chaotic) duels happening. Remember, for each book you have a shot at winning the corresponding shiny prizes.
Don't forget that participation in our Five Fables event, as well as ANY contests/activities within the Magical Archives gives you a shot at winning your very own Book of Records.

This is just the beginning


9:10 pm - HEX Staff


The thief smiled to himself. Recognition beyond his wildest dreams would be waiting at the end of this. Sure, it was far from even the beginning, but the first step had already been taken. And the first step was his.

He held the Time Turner at eye level, watching it with an almost endearing curiosity. How could such a minuscule object crush all that is the past and rebuild a future? It wouldn't be easy, there was no need to kid himself. But when it happened last, it had been an accident no one was ready for. This time, however, there would be a plan and they would succeed.

This time, they would be ready.
This time, there would be no mercy.
This time, they would choose wisely. Or they would lose everything.


Soon. Yes, very soon he will be known as more than just a Jr. This will be his legacy.

The Founders have searched far and wide to find the perfect place to build a new school - one for young witches and wizards.

Perhaps they got help from someone at Hogsmeade instead? Head over to the Main Yard to help in the construction of this amazing facility in Hogwarts: Making History! All entries are due May 31, 2017, at 11:59 p.m. HEX time.

Arts & Graphics :: May


12:11 pm - dagaz




Dun-dun-dun-dun-da-na-dun-da-na...

Is that Kylo Ren we spy? Yes! And what is that zzzzzztching sound that just won't stop? It seems the A&G forum has been overrun by Star Wars fans - and you're just in time to join the Rebel Alliance! Or the Dark Side, if you prefer; you'll find no judgement here. Jedi, Rebel, or Sith, check out the Arts & Graphics forum for some seriously under-handed (heh...) fun!

Maybe you're more interested in who is walking away with both hands still firmly attached? If so, check out the Artist of the Month and A&G ISO threads. May the Fourth be with you, because it's the Revenge of the Fifth!

Challenge winners will walk away with some shiny Galleons and House Points, and their winning entries will be posted on HEX's official Tumblr page.

1st Place: 10,000 Galleons + 3,000 House Points
2nd Place: 5,000 Galleons + 2,000 House Points

New Issue of The Quibbler!


9:54 pm - Zoe


It's a bird! It's a plane! Nope, nope... that's definitely a cloud. Ah, fiddlesticks. I was hoping that some sort of weather superhero was coming to save the day. Oh well! Clouds are just as lovely, wouldn't you agree? No? Hmm. Well, regardless of whichever type of weather you enjoy, we hope that you enjoy this month's issue of The Quibbler! Once you get done reading the newest issue, take a moment and ask yourself if you've ever wanted to be the assistant editor for the best publication on the site that rhymes with The Wibbler! If so, head on over to this thread to find out more!

If you have any questions, concerns, or comments about The Quibbler, please either visit The Newsstand or owl Zoe, Art, or Nicole.

Hogsmeade Store Opening!


10:39 am - Ninja Kitten



Months and months of secret planning and preparation have finally come to fruition. You've all been requesting cards in addition to the Thank You cards, and thanks to the designs of the lovely Sara, and coding from the lovely Spiora the Hogsmeade Post Office will finally open this coming weekend!

You will find that we have many more types of cards, with plans for expansion still in the works. They have been removed from Scrivenshaft's and relocated into the Post Office at this time. Spiora has not only coded the actions onto the new cards to be able to send them to others, but she has also added a brand new page to store ALL types of cards sent to you so that they are all in the same place.

As we do realize that Hogsmeade is only open on the weekends, we highly suggest keeping an eye on donations this week for a taste of the new and old cards alike. You never know who will be generous enough to toss some cards in!

Not over yet.


3:12 pm - HEX Staff


The man ran his fingers through the sea of red hair as he gave a final glance to the parchment before him. Definitely need to restock on the Puking Pastilles, they'll barely stay on the shelf once the exams season is coming. With his mind still on the pastilles, he gave his wand a wave and darkness fell over the unusually quiet shop.

As George Weasley headed up the creaky stairs, little did he know that the figure just outside his shop was waiting for that exact signal. Once the lights went out and the bedroom door closed, the shadow expertly made their way into the backroom avoiding all anti-thief spells. Perhaps George could have paid a little more attention in the Defense Against Dark Arts classes.

It wasn't hard to find what the cloaked face was looking for. Could anyone blame George that the object found its way in his prized possessions box? It did give him, after all, a snatched moment of seeing his brother again, alive and well. Wasting no time, the thief grabbed the tiny hourglass, got up and turned on the spot. Both him and the Time Turner Disapparated into the night...
