“Now he reigned alone in their castle. Having transferred his greatest treasure to the deepest dungeon, he gave himself over to a life of ease and plenty, his comfort the only aim of his many servants.

The warlock was sure that he must be an object of immense envy to all who beheld his splendid and untroubled solitude.”
― J.K. Rowling, The Tales of Beedle the Bard



The warlock is well aware of how vexatious it is to have to explain to all these people why he remains in solitude, even after all these years. As this 14th century festival dating back to English poetic traditions of courtly love, celebrating the feast of St. Valentine envelopes couples in love, the warlock is left with more inquiries about his quest to find the “one.”

But in reality, there’s nothing wrong with being in solitude. In fact, for the warlock there are multiple benefits to being in a salubrious and felicitous relationship with himself. And to help him get through the loathsome event that is the “Day of Love”, he has rounded up a set of Valentine words that he forbids his servants to use. He does then and there command that all folks who are caught using these forbidden words shall, on this very day, and throughout the month, be apprehended by issuing violation tickets. So it is done.


TASK

This is a lock/unlock activity. Each round, this thread will be unlocked and a set of “forbidden” words will be posted. The words can be anything that have something to do with Valentine’s Day, like love, heart, cupid, etc.

While this thread is unlocked, you can post a small piece of writing related to Valentines and the tale of Warlock’s Hairy Heart using only one of the forbidden words from the set to be the focus of your text. Your entry must include the forbidden word of your choice and must be posted here in this thread.

At the end of each round, a randomizer will be used to determine which word shall be avoided when speaking as the warlock ordered to his servants. Everyone who correctly guessed the forbidden word will get tickets for the prizes. Keep in mind though, that this thread will be unlocked for 24-48 hours only at random dates and times.


PRIZES

First Place
15,000 Galleons + 500 House Points
Second Place
15,000 Galleons + 500 House Points
Third Place
15,000 Galleons + 500 House Points

Have you ever wondered what makes your heart feel with joy when a certain someone catches your eye and feelings? I have and for all honesty I have not figured it out, maybe it's the way the that person looks or the perfume they wear. I'm really not quit sure. But I do know this. That when the right man or woman comes along you will see all the beautiful things about them.

Stupid Cupid. The little fat baby with wings and a quiver of arrows. Shoots people with arrows to make them have a crush on another person. Feels...like forced infatuation.
Romeo and Juliet listened to the little Cupid. Look at how that turned out. Not so well for the star crossed couple, eh?

Hey! What about me? You shoot me with an arrow but you forget to shoot the twin arrow! Now I have a crush but the crush doesn’t have a crush on me. Foolish, forgetful, stupid Cupid.

Cupid's father was Mercury, the winged, messenger of the gods, and his mother was the goddess Venus He carried a bow and a quiver of arrows that he used to shoot people. The arrow's wound caused two people to become more than friends.
Cupid is frequently depicted as a chubby pink cherub with an arrow inserted in his bow, aimed, ready to fire. His image is often used on wedding decorations.

They say the heart wants what the heart wants. But are we slaves to the heart or the master of it?
Does it beat at our behest or do we live at its? Such a small thing a heart yet it rules so much of our life from birth to death and perhaps beyond.

The heart is often so fragile as it moves through all of the life experiences. It is so resilient and capable of with standing so much pressure. It can also be so fragile that people actually die from heartbreak. It is charged with high electrical output. It reacts to all around us and races in situations of stress and anxiety.
It is always a good idea to let it rest well.

Hearts are a cute and pretty symbol that is plastered all over everything during the month of February. They are usually pink or red and are often seen on cards that people give to friends and family members to show them that they care. Various flavors of candy such as chocolate also come in that shape and are frequently given away during that time of year. They have also been known to show up on things associated with weddings.

The dreaded holiday was bad enough, but how did a chubby, nearly-naked baby become the symbol for matching couples together? Cupid? Ridiculous! How could a man of my stature and honor have my fate decided by such a creature? No, I refuse to believe that the mother of my children will be chosen by a cupid! When the universe finds someone worthy of me, she will enter my life as ordained.

The warlock's heart thumped in the box, a pretty Valentine's gift for his maiden. But is that really a good present? Shouldn't he think a little harder? The symbolism is there, of course, but who would actually want a live, beating, hairy heart as a gift? If I were her, I'd run for the hills.

There was a light dusting of snow on the grounds of the castle that morning. The Warlock sat on his throne and said to his servants, "Prepare a feast! Today I shall invite the lovely maidens of the village to my humble abode. We shall see which of them can look upon my hairy heart and still hold me close in their own hearts."

A heart, he says, can be one of the most delicate organ in our body. One could be broken at the smallest words spoken or it can light up the world around is with selflessness and kindness. One can even find their soul mates from its symbolic respresentation. Though it can technically come in many colours, it is healthiest when read. One may even choose to let its feeling guide them through their life.

"Pfft...what's love? What are feelings? Nothing. Why does everyone make such a fuss about it? Just a few words stolen from my servant (which is talented with finding beautiful words), and I'm done", thought the Warlock. "All women like to hear those kind of words and soon the beautiful maiden will be mine! I don't need this stupid thing in my chest for it."

Turned out the Warlock was wrong. Love never works if it's not real, and if you don't feel it deep inside you.

You notice a guard suddenly springs from behind while you are speaking, like a stalking beast, waiting to pounce on you without hesitation. Of course, you get defensive like a trapped prey but it is too late, you are caught uttering this word:

Cupid
Proof

Here’s the list of people who will receive each a violation ticket and will be subject to attending a seminar about anti-Valentine philosophy, which will be administered by the warlock himself:

Love. Something that is so hard to earn sometimes, and so easy to lose.

Yet sometimes this flighty emotion appears when you least need it, messing up your life, tearing through the safe mundane routine of daily activities, rather like a hurricane ravaging the mainland, yet…in the trail of destruction, it often brings new sights, new experiences. Is it a good thing, or a bad thing? Nobody can answer that question definitively. It simply “is”, and it’s up to us to decide how we perceive it.

A hug gives one a sense of security, it warms the body and the heart. It makes one's outlook much brighter.
What is a hug worth in currency? Millions? Quadrillions? I think they are worth more than one can count. When a friend is feeling low, give them a hug. Hugs are a great way to start the day.

A persons heart is the centre of their being. It is the point from which all their emotion and passion emanates. A person with a big and open heart is sure to have passionate and positive relationships while someone who has lost all this is said to be heartless or have a heart of stone.

The warlock's hairy heart was a bit of an anomaly. It's interesting how he used it to try and convince the maiden of his love. I also think the way he kept it locked up said much about himself as a man. Not wanting to hold it in his chest any longer because he didn't want to feel its presence is an interesting idea.

The last woman that vied for the warlock’s attention showed her affection by giving him a hug whenever she greeted him. The warlock was not self-conscious about his body odor. He may only bathe once a week, but his musky smell demonstrated his strength and virility. Her odor, on the other hand, was offensive. No amount of scented lotions and powders could mask the foul smell of her dried sweat that he had to endure during each hug. If she had been a proper lady, she would not have had to work, and therefore would have no reason to smell as if she had been in the fields. The warlock certainly could not lower himself to take on a mere commoner.
