Can you feel it?

10:55 am - Ninja Kitten

The Wizarding World has entered a new era, and with that, a new world of peace. Is it finally time for our world to show who can be faster, who can push themselves higher, and how we're now stronger than ever through some peaceful competitions?

It's coming, are you ready for it?

June 25, 2016

And so it begins...

3:15 pm - Ninja Kitten

Love it or hate it, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child has come to life. The preview shows have begun in London and the script is set for release on Harry's birthday in late July. What sort of Harry Potter fan-site would we be if we didn't do something momentous for such an occasion?

So, we present to you, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child! Beginning tomorrow, June 26th, contests will begin to pop up in twelve, that's right, TWELVE different areas on HEX. They will each pop up at different times as each has been created by the forum mods, GMods, and Staffers who run those areas. Lots of blood, sweat, and tears have gone into producing this event from the contests to the graphics to the items.

We hope that you enjoy it! More information is located in the thread that is linked below this announcement.

Harry Potter & the Cursed Child

7:47 pm - John

The release of the script for Cursed Child at the end of July as well as the live performances in London are fast approaching. Due to this exciting new release in the series, we feel that it is fully necessary to invoke something we did for the book releases on HEX - the Spoiler ban.

What this means is that any user found to be posting spoilers for Cursed Child in any forum outside of the new one linked at the top of the page, will be edited and warned, depending on each case specifically. Any spoilers posted inside the special Cursed Child forum MUST be within spoiler tags. We do not want anyone who wishes to remain surprised until they see/read it to have anything spoiled for them. Please be respectful and mindful when posting about the Cursed Child and use spoiler tags as necessary. Thank you!

In Loving Memory

6:22 am - Chrissy

Death is a definite for all of us, in almost any universe that we can imagine. All things good or bad must come to an end. Throughout the Harry Potter series, there is a large focus on death, grief, loss, and mourning. Many of our favourite characters, young and old, were lost along the way. In the real world there were also many great actors, actresses, and other contributors to the series who have since passed.

The Magical Archivists welcome you to our new memorial forum, In Loving Memory, a place to celebrate life and to share memories of the good times with others.

As well as our exciting new forum, there are many other activities going on the Magical Archives. For your ease, here are the current, on-going contests:

The Adventures of Mrs. Norris

7:13 am - Jaessa

Mrs. Norris crept around the corner of the third floor hallway. What was that? A hint of a movement in the shadows? The sound of light footfalls along the stone corridor? The furry hunter accelerated, quickly catching up to her prey...

Have you always wanted to know what Filch's cat is up to all day? Dreamed about sneaking through the shades and catching rulebreaking students with her? Come join the Ravenclaw Staff in the hallways of Hogwarts!

RPC Update: June

9:52 am - picklebuddy7

If good things lasted forever, would we appreciate how precious they are?

Most children have that one thing that they are attached to as children, be it a stuffed animal, a blanket, a doll, or some other object from their childhood. For Calvin, that special something was his stuffed pet tiger Hobbes. Together, they had adventures through space, solved crimes as noir detectives, played house with Susie, founded and managed the Get Rid Of Slimy girlS club (G.R.O.S.S.), and took the revenge of the baby-sat. Together they answered philosophical questions about life and happiness, all from a child's eyes.

It's funny how day by day, nothing changes. But when you look back, everything is different.

Join RPC for its June Roleplay of the Month: Happiness: 10 Cents. You have until June 30th at 11:59 pm HEX time to complete your roleplay.

Best Plot: 10,000 Galleons and 2,500 HP (each)
Best Character: 10,000 Galleons and 2,500 HP
Best Overall Post: 10,000 Galleons and 2,500 HP

New Issue of the Quibbler!

5:52 pm - Sara

Well the Quibbler team was mighty exhausted after going to the zoo last month! So to pick up their spirits and get them on to writing we decided to pump them full of candy and sugar! Which, in hindsight, may not have been the best idea, so while the writers recover from their tummy aches brought on by too much sugar, you can check out the June issue of the Quibbler for some sweet articles! If you have questions or comments about the Quibbler, please either visit the Newsstand here or send an owl to Zoe.
