Teaching Applications for 2011-12

Lost for Centuries. Destroyed in an Instant.

12:00 am - Hpfanextrm

Tom Riddle continued to charm those that he knew could lead him to the items he desired most. Helena Ravenclaw told him of her mother Rowena's Lost Diadem. She explained to him that she had grown envious of her mother's fame and wisdom and stole her precious tiara. Her mother, saddened and ashamed of her daugter's doing, kept the secret of her daughter's betrayal from others, including her fellow Founders. When Rowena fell fatally ill, she asked the Baron, who was in love with Helena, to find her daughter. The Baron found her in Albania, where she'd hidden the diadem within a hollow tree. When Helena announced to him that she did not love him back, he took her life before being overcome with guilt and taking his own.

Tom Riddle hid The Diadem of Rowena Ravenclaw within the Room of Hidden Things--a place he thought no one else would ever find. Riddle claimed to know every secret to Hogwarts. He was wrong, though, because you have found the Room of Hidden Things. Will you find the Diadem, though, in The Quest for the Horcruxes?

The Unwilling Vessel of a Thief's Broken Soul

12:00 am - Heather

Along with the locket, Hepzibah Smith also showed Tom Riddle one of her family's most prized heirlooms, the magical cup owned and created by Helga Hufflepuff herself. Riddle coveted it at first glance and saw it as a vessel worthy to contain a piece of his soul. He stole the cup and killed its rightful owner in the process. The cup was later stored inside the heavily-guarded vault of the Lestranges, a place he could only wish to have.

Join Harry, Hermione and Ron as they infiltrate Gringott's bank, one the the most secured places in the wizarding world, in their Quest for the Horcruxes.

We exclusively show you how to prepare for an unsuspected attack when we take you into the day in the life of the average wizard. Finally, do not miss out in our in-depth look at the exploits and excursions of Harry Potter as we ask ourselves if he is getting too much credit for things he supposedly did? Find out in the July edition of The Daily Prophet!

A Burden To Bear.

12:00 am - Heather

Tom Riddle's employment at Borgin and Burkes fed his fascination for ancient, historical artifacts. Through the course of his work, he encountered famous relics of the founders of his school that felt like his very first home. Hepzibah Smith informed Riddle that she had paid Mr. Burke a heft price for The Locket of Salazar Slytherin, who originally obtained it from a distraught young woman in desperate need of money. Riddle knew that he was, in fact, a descendent of Salazar Slytherin, and realized that the woman she spoke of must have been his mother. He believed the Locket to be rightfully his.

Pursuers in The Quest for the Horcruxes face a heavy burden: keeping a Horcrux safe without a means to destroy it. The shred of Voldemort's soul possessing it drained those who wore it both emotionally and mentally.

The Quibbler: July 2011

12:43 am - Faye Fenikkusu

The Quibbler is returning from a bit of a hiatus. Why? We all went on a badass vacation, and, to make up for our absence, we're bringing you all of the juiciest stories! From a chilling expose on the horrors secretly contained within the Three Broomsticks to hearing about Heather's chicken finger fascination, my inability to function like a normal person when given a certain variety of ice tea, and - you guessed it - Rima's checkered knickers, the best place to get the scoop is none other than Hex's #1 source for trufax news!

If you have any questions or concerns about the Quibbler or its content, please owl Tori Tendleswift, Aiden Jakorr or one of its editors, myself or Marluxia. Thanks and enjoy the issue!

Voldemort's Horcrux. Dumbledore's Hallow.

12:00 am - Hpfanextrm

He had already made one Horcrux, tearing his soul in two in the process. He had plans to do the unthinkable, though, and tear it five more times to split his soul into seven fragments. Voldemort hoped to make his second murder a little more meaningful than his first and paid a brief visit to his uncle and mother's old house before comiting the unthinkable. He sought revenge against his Muggle father for abandoning him and his mother.

This week Voldemort confronts his past. He frames his uncle for his father's murder and unknowingly creates a Horcrux from one of the three Deathly Hallows. The Quest for the Horcruxes continues.

It All Ends Here.

12:00 am - Heather

Hogwarts Extreme invites you to participate in the film release event, The Quest for the Horcruxes, to celebrate the worldwide opening of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. With more than fifty prizes to be won, this eight week long event should help you cope with the sad realization that the final Harry Potter film is finally here. All seven horcruxes are up for grabs, not to mention the three Deathly Hallows themselves.

Will you have what it takes to conquer and destroy all seven torn fragments of Voldemort's soul and face him in the final battle?
Voldemort made his first Horcrux from his very own diary while still at Hogwarts. Even at such a young age, Voldemort thirsted for power and immortality. He began his first steps towards both with the murder of an unfortunate Ravenclaw girl.

This week we explore the creation of Voldemort's very first Horcrux-- from the tracking of his victim to the ritual by which he first tore his soul.

Spoiler Policy

To coincide with the start of the event and the release of the film next week, Hogwarts Extreme has adopted a new spoiler policy to prevent anyone who doesn't wish to be spoiled from learning too much about the film before its release. It can be found here. Everyone is advised to read this policy, as it applies to the entire site rather than just the event forum.
