5:43 pm - Ninja Kitten


Admit it. You've read and re-read the books hundreds of times over the years. No shame in that. We are all united on this site through our love of JK Rowling's fantastic literary works. It is our hope that we help you all keep the love for Harry Potter and all of his friends and foes for decades to come.

To continue along this theme we are now pleased to announce the opening of a forum dedicated to just the book of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Click the picture above, and join the Magical Archivists in sharing your favorite parts, memories, and things you'd rather forget happened.

So let's see if we can hunt down those horcruxes, re-meet our favorite house elf and then just look back on how the book series has been for all us.

Dueling - Gryffindor vs Slytherin


1:36 am - Alisyn Malfoy


It's a new year of school and a new season of dueling! Professor Lockhart, in his usual flamboyant manner, has decked out the Great Hall in a manner suitable for welcoming the students back. The model Hogwarts Express that he received last Christmas from a secret admirer has been put to good use, allowing him to travel in comfort between the clashes of magic and giving him a much more objective view of the playing field. More importantly, it will hopefully protect his perfect, golden locks from the nasty effects of spells gone astray due to student carelessness.

The first set of duels is between Noble Gryffindor and Cunning Slytherin. To watch this sure-to-be-epic clash between sworn rivals or to admire the ever-stunning Gilderoy Lockhart, run over to the Great Hall now!

Arts & Graphics Forum Update - September


7:22 am - deidra



It may seem like we have traveled through time and landed in September, but in fact, this month just sort of crept up on us! Speaking of time travel, this month is all about that very subject. I can't promise you'll find a Timelord, but you may just land yourself some house points if you head over to the Arts and Graphics forum.

If you've ever had a fantasy about time travel or had a great idea for a redesigned time machine, now is your chance to use your creative juices. The writing challenge has you writing a story about time travel and you must come up with an original way of traveling through time, but pay attention to the word requirements! The graphics challenge is in the same vein; you will be building your very own time machine, a la' H.G. Wells. So, if time travel is your thing or you really just like galleons and house points, run, don't walk over to the Arts and Graphics Forum and get creative!

Not wasting any more time, here are the prizes;
1st Place: 10,000 Galleons + 3,000 House Points
2nd Place: 5,000 Galleons + 2,000 House Points
3rd Place: 2,000 Galleons + 1,000 House Points

House Cup


5:48 pm - John


Congratulations to Gryffindor for winning the House Cup for the 2013-2014 school year!

The results ended up being as follows:

Gryffindor - 790,790.5 points
Ravenclaw - 762,439.0 points
Slytherin - 699,171.8 points
Hufflepuff - 654,709.5 points

Gryffindors can now collect their house cup prize through the link in the common room. You must have attained at least 100 points to be able to collect.

Year advancements have officially happened. If you attained 100 points or more, then you qualified to advance to the next year. There are no exceptions to this. If you did not attain the 100 point minimum, you will not be moved up.

Brand New and Important for this Year: The points required to move up at the end of this school year have been upped to 1,200. Given that you can get up to 10 points for just 1 homework, the change seemed more than reasonable, and is the first change in the history of the site.

This year, we have a record amount of graduates. A total of sixty-seven people have graduated this year. Becoming a graduate on HEX is very difficult to achieve, and is a huge honor. The following users graduated this year:
