Another term at Hogwarts will soon come to an end. No new classes will be posted after June 1st, and no homework will be accepted after June 7th. Any homework submitted after that time will not be graded. Please plan accordingly.

The Slytherin Shirts are still in the works, but we need a few more orders to reach the minimum amount to place the order. I know a lot of you have expressed interest about them in threads and in owls to me. Once we get the minimum, the order will immediately be put in and the shirts will be shipped.
Also, the incentive deal is still going on. Details about it can be found here. The main thing is that every store order will get between 25k and 1.5 million galleons, the amount determined by random drawing. For the orders that have been placed thus far, galleons will begin to be handed out starting towards the end of next week.

This day marks the Battle of Hogwarts and the day that Harry Potter defeated He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named. We're all here because of the books and the subsequent movies, but, we wouldn't be here if there wasn't something deeper that touched us in a way beyond a mere fantastical story. The story is a familiar one, told many times before of an unsuspecting hero for good overcoming an overwhelming force of evil. But, something, something else made these stories stand out and brought us all here.
Let's use this day to reflect upon what made the books so special, and why we still instinctively say "Lumos" every time we walk into a darkened room.
