Thanks, Ashlie. :-) I do plenty of frog stitching as well. And yeah, i totally hear you about that frustration.

I love baking too! For me it is exhausting though from being on my feet so much. Can't wait to be back in a house though, so i can do some real cooking. ^_^

Being a mother is nothing to be sneezed at! It is a wonderful calling and a full time job.

From everything you've said, it sounds like you're good at it too. ^_^ I'm sure you'll find things to occupy your time when Marina moves on to the next stage.

Kinda jealous actually. I feel like I'm gonna be a terrible mom. 😂

I have to disagree a bit. Each child is unique with their own unique personalities. Some are ideal kids, some aren't. Being a good parent is only half of the equation. You do your best, and most times, it will turn out well. I had one of those who was a handful from the day we brought him home. I was surprised he made it till his 21st birthday without being in prison. He will be 34 in 2 months. It has been 10 years since we talked, and I have accepted I will never talk to him again. After 10 years, there is no relationship and never will be.

You won't know that until the kids turn 21. Odds are you will be a terrific mom.

"Oh, yeah. Poor bloke. Brilliant mind. He was fine while he was studyin' outta books but then he took a year off ter get some first-hand experience... They say he met vampires in the Black Forest and there was a nasty bit o' trouble with a hag - never been the same since."
- Hagrid about Quirinus Quirrell in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone


There is a meeting of the vampires in the White Wyvern and you have been sent undercover to find out what they are up to. You clip on your fake vampire fangs and off you go. But, oh no! The barkeeper expects you to drink something. You know that vampires like to spike their drinks with poison... or worse. Which drink will you decide upon? What will you find out about the vampires?

This contest has two parts. In the first part, you need to find out which drink is safe to consume. In the second, you are to write about the meeting of the vampires and how it went.


TASK ONE
From the ingredients and given clues, you need to find out which of the following drinks you can safely consume without ingesting any poison or human blood.
- Bloody Mary: vodka, tomato juice, salt, black pepper
- Hangman’s Blood: rum, gin, brandy, porter
- Jack Rose: applejack, grenadine, lime juice
- Bramble: dry gin, lemon juice, sugar syrup, crème de mûre, crushed ice
- Flaming Volcano: rum, brandy, pineapple juice, orange juice, almond syrup

Thankfully, a colleague has slipped a piece of paper with a coded message into your pocket. Maybe it can help you out.



TASK TWO
In 200-500 words, describe how your undercover mission went. What did you learn about the gathering of the vampires? Were you caught or did you get out just fine? It is entirely up to you.

RULES
- You can choose to do only one task, or both. For each task you complete, you receive one ticket toward the drawing for prizes.
- For task one, please include the solved cryptogram and the drink you chose.
- For task two, your writing should be in a word range of 200-500. Everything above or below this word count won’t be eligible for a ticket for the prize drawing.
- Send your entry to KA before November 30th at 11:59 PM HEX time.
- Only one entry per person. If you choose to do both tasks, please submit them in one entry.
- Plagiarism will not be tolerated and will result in disqualification.
- If you have any questions, feel free to owl Enyra.


PRIZES
Sack of Dead Rats + 30,000 G + 2,000 House Points
Toad Charm + 20,000 G + 1,000 House Points
Vampire Float + 20,000 G + 500 House Points
