The best thing about memories is making them.

Together, the Malfoys and the Potters are not only making new memories, but are reflecting on the old ones as well. From the bonds of children and their parents to the excitement of being with close friends, we welcome you all to join us in celebrating the joys that come with fall, family, and friendship.

Monopoly Mischief

1:00 am - Zoe

It was just another ordinary day at The Burrow. Molly was in the kitchen enchanting some dishes to clean themselves while Ginny was helping her clear the table from a very delicious dinner. Fred and George were whispering in a corner about new ideas for their side business, Weasley’s Wizarding Wheezes, and Ron was laying back on a squishy couch, full from dinner. Arthur had missed the meal due to an important raid at the Ministry, but according to the Weasley’s bewitched clock, he would be home shortly.

Suddenly flames appeared in the Weasley’s fireplace and Arthur stepped into the room, holding a soot-covered box. “Gather round, Weasleys!” he said coughing from the ash. “I acquired the most peculiar Muggle entertainment device.”

He walked over to the kitchen and set the box on the table as the rest of the Weasley family huddled around. “It’s called Monopoly and it’s a board game that Muggles play for fun. Let’s try it out, shall we?” He asked with glee, pulling off the lid.

Welcome to the Ravenclaw Restock! Thank you for joining the Weasley family and the Ravenclaw staff in this mischievous event! Head over to our buy-in thread for more information on how to participate!

Site Character Accounts

5:02 pm - Ninja Kitten

SCA, or Site Character Accounts, are the canon characters that you see out and about during HEX events. They have brought great joy and excitement to our users for awhile now, but it's been in a fairly sporadic fashion... unfortunately. All of that changes NOW.

The area referred to as the 'SCA' is now an Official area of HEX, meaning we are now able to provide incentives/payment for work done as well as giving publicized credit to those who are helping out. We will still very much so remain anonymous when using a character- we do want everyone to be able to let loose and not be afraid of being flamed or trolled for their portrayals. We ask that y'all continue to respect their privacy in regards to that.

Who wants to help us bring excitement to their fellow users? Come and play with us!

This message has been brought to you by NK, Vicki, Nikky, and Lua. Though, we are not responsible for anything that the canon accounts break. :look:
