September Fan Fiction


7:15 pm - Aetherene




You're going to be placed in Gryffindor. You can feel it in your bones that you were made for the lion emblem in red and gold. It's going to be Gryffindor, you think as the Sorting Hat is placed on your head.

"RAVENCLAW!"

What?

A wise man named Albus Dumbledore once said, "You know, I sometimes think we Sort too soon..." We think we are made for once house, but as we age, we change. Sometimes our true colors show then, something that the Sorting Hat cannot foretell. In Fan Fiction's September Theme Prompt, tackle writing a story involving the doubt felt when sorted into a house that was not expected.

Need more tickets to earn prizes in our Monthly Raffle? Here's a list of contests to participate in!

We are in the time of a great war. Dumbledore has fallen, and the Death Eaters have taken over the Ministry and Hogwarts.

What are the Death Eaters searching the train for? Come and join us over at the Hogwarts Express forum as we find out more about these Troublesome Times. All entries are due September 30, 2017, at 11:59 p.m. HEX time.

A HINT Update


6:16 pm - Zimmy


The HINT staff loved the collaborative storytelling so much that we've decided HINTory will be a regular feature. However, we didn't discover any amazing storytelling prowess within ourselves, so we still need your help!

In addition to polls to help develop the story and characters, there will also be an activity each month that rotates through the HINT forums. Come check out Chapter 2: Movie Marathon, which used last month's poll results to get us going!

We're happy to announce that in addition to House Points, we have a new incentive item to go with HINTory!


HINTspiration Award

The item will be awarded as part of the monthly HINTory activity, so be sure to check out Determining Destinations for your chance at it!

Keep an eye on the HINT Enterprises Watch Thread to stay up to date on activities throughout HINT!

Arts & Graphics Forum :: September


12:11 pm - Katie


From time immemorial, legends have been told about the great deeds of others. You've seen pictures in museums, perhaps, or maybe statues of these historical, mythical figures. You've seen their movies, read books about them, listened to their stories, and possibly even told a few yourself. Where would we be without these characters of lore?

Bored, probably.

This month, the Arts & Graphics forum is all about the excitement of a good legend. Whether it's right here in our beloved Harry Potter universe or if the Arthurian stories suit you better, we're sure there's something there to spark your creativity. If family crests interest you, grab your sword and run right over to our Graphics Challenge to whip up a family crest for your favorite Harry Potter family. If writing is more your style, pick up that lance and gallop over to the Writing Challenge to rewrite the ending of Arthur's story from the perspective of one of his closest companions. We hope to see you all soon at the Round Table!

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

New Issue of The Quibbler!


11:35 pm - Zoe


Short ones, tall ones, solid ones, spotted ones. Fuzzy ones, striped ones, ones with toes, and even some patterned with noses! Wait, why would you want your socks to have noses on them? That's weird, but as the proud owner of piano key socks... who am I to judge? Whatever your preference is, go pull out your favorite pair of socks and slip them on. You'll be enjoying their company as you browse through this month's issue of The Quibbler and read all about our (usually) soft and wonderful foot prisons protectors!

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