Alex strode through the doors to the Great Hall with a new resolve. What fell upon her pale eyes was nothing short of spectacular. Sir Nicholas had told her that Hogwarts went all out for Halloween, but this was beyond anything her first-year brain could have ever imagined. Pumpkins stretched along the starry-skied ceiling, floating for as far as the eye could see. Each one had been exquisitely carved, unique from its companions like a Halloween snowflake. The once bright sky now looked downright spooky. Thunder crackled within the magical ceiling, and an eerie layer of cloud cover began to roll across the sky. At the front of the Great Hall, the House ghosts stood, enthusiastically performing death reenactments.

"Let the feast begin!" The familiar voice of the Headmaster resonated throughout the hall, echoing through its chambers as students descended upon the House tables.


TASK
Your task is to solve the following Fallen Phrase Puzzle to reveal a quote from the Harry Potter franchise.


After you have solved the puzzle, you may write a roleplay post using any character you'd like that utilizes the above quote. Doing so will earn you an extra ticket towards the monthly raffle. Your roleplay post must be between 200 and 750 words (inclusive).


RULES
1. All HEX, RPC, and RPC Lounge rules apply. All work must be your own.
2. This is a puzzle activity and a roleplaying task. The puzzle is mandatory for your entry to be considered valid. The roleplay portion is optional. You do not need to submit an edited version of the Fallen Phrase Puzzle for your entry to count; just the solved quote is fine.
3. The optional roleplay post must be between 200 and 750 words in length. It must be centered around a character of your choice and must include the phrase from the puzzle.
4. Please only send in one entry for this activity. If you send in more than one entry, then only your first will be counted.
5. You may earn a maximum of two tickets to the RPC's October Participation Raffle from this contest: one from the puzzle and one from the optional roleplay post.
6. Winners for this contest will be randomized from among all eligible entries.
7. Please owl your entries to the RPC Mods account.
8. If you have any questions, feel free to post them in this thread or owl Beth.
9. All entries must be submitted no later than October 31st 2019 at 11:59 PM HEX time.

This was a delightful challenge. Definitely a challenge. 😂

When we write the RP part, do we have a character actually say those words then?

I’d just like to make sure I understand, our character utilizes the above quote or our hero completing one of the tasks from the list you compiled.

And can we use OC or CC?
