Red Carpet? Check. Designs? Check. Lockhart Award Trophies? Check. All that's left? Well, an audience, of course! Gilderoy Lockhart is at it again! He's sick and tired of everybody celebrating the Oscars. Why can't he have his own Lockhart Awards show instead? In lieu of this, he wants all of you to be his guests. It's going to be a spectacle that only the best of the best can participate in. What better way to celebrate it along with Dueling too, right? Get ready as the Dedicated Ravenclaws and the Persevering Gryffindors battle it out in a sea of blue and red while trying to win the esteemed prize - a Lockhart! (Not to be mistaken for an Oscar). The battle begins now in the Great Hall. It's a show you wouldn't want to miss!

RPC Updates

5:55 pm - Artemis Eve

Ambrosius Flume prided himself in being prepared for every holiday. His shop in Hogsmeade was one of the most visited during these occasions. Easter would have been no different, except ... it was. He was just filling up a jar of Liquorice Wands when a loud boom echoed from the other side of the shop. Ambrosius whirled around and stared with horror at the horde of chocolate frogs coming right his way. All he could do was curl under the counter as the enchanted candy frogs jumped through the shop and out the open door. He needed a moment to fathom what had just happened.

"Linda! Did you just release our bestselling products?"

He couldn't imagine his wife doing such damage to their joint business, but he had to ask. How else would the chocolate frogs be able to hop out of their boxes and onto the selling floor?

Join the RPC for our March's Roleplay of The Month: Easter Mayhem in Hogsmeade. You have until March 31st, 11:59 PM HEX time to complete your roleplay.

Best Plot: 5,000 Galleons and 2,500 HP (each)
Best Character: 5,000 Galleons and 2,500 HP
Best Overall Post: 5,000 Galleons and 2,500 HP

Arts & Graphics Forum Update :: March

Just as we have two eyes and two feet, duality is part of life.
-Carlos Santana

We are almost through winter! Those of us who are living on the top half of our little blue planet, anyway. Those of you living on the southern half, well, we're sorry. That's the downside of the Equator. This month we're all about double meanings or finding something different after looking deeper than the surface. For the writing challenge, you're going to be writing a a letter that seems amorous on the surface, but underneath, it's full of bile and insults. The writing challenge is inspired by Graphic Designer, Olly Moss, and challenges you to dig a little deeper in your design. If you haven't checked out the Artwork of the Month, you should run, not walk, to that thread. March's AOTM is fabulous! Great work!
As always, the winners will go home with galleons and House Points, and their entries will be published on the official HEX Tumblr page.
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
