April Fan Fiction

2:54 pm - Aetherene

He tilts his head to the side and pokes the item on the table. It lights up, and something appears on the display. He had never seen anything like this before, but it was his Muggle Born friend's property, which she said she used on a regular basis when not at Hogwarts. She said it was a "portable felly phone"? What did that mean?

Muggles are more technologically advanced whereas the magical world has...well, magic. But when a witch or wizard has no idea about how to work Muggle technology, what sort of mayhem (or confusion) will this cause? Join Fan Fiction for the April Theme Prompt and write your version today!

This prompt doesn't suit your fancy? No worries! There are plenty more activities to participate in to earn tickets for the Monthly Raffle!

RPC Update: April

9:25 pm - Pyper

An overabundance of rain has swept through Scotland, and the Great Lake has flooded. Hogwarts is taking the brunt of it. Water is flowing through the first floor of the castle, and the staff and students are running about. This month's Roleplay of the Month, April Showers, begs the question: What are you and your friends doing to help or hinder the situation?

The Muggle world hasn't fared any better than the wizarding world. All of the rain has kept everyone inside where it's nice and warm. However, boredom has set in. Rain, Rain Go Away is an escape from the monotony. Grab your friends and meet us in the RPC! You can also earn tickets to our monthly raffle; all you have to do is participate in one or both of our events.

Arts & Graphics :: April

10:11 pm - Erikka

The mouse ran up the clock...

Time is always ticking, even in an odd place like Underland! As the clock makes it's rounds, make your way through Father Time's castle for an experience worth your....well, time.

Though out of sequence and most likely sense as well, a moment or three from a subject's timeline is quite a tale to be told in this place. And the sites are quite something to behold. Which is why we must freeze time and capture a scene to last eternity in Time's castle.

Then, see what is in a run for one artist who seized the dark hours of the day in their work. And always remember that days come and go, so make the most of the moments you have.


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

The Five Fables

1:09 am - bizarre

Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist,
but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten. - G.K. Chesterton

The Tales of Beedle the Bard played a crucial role in understanding some of the key elements of the Harry Potter series - namely The Tale of Three Brothers. But, as all Potter fans know, there are many other tales of Beedle the Bard. The Magical Archives is presenting you the opportunity to explore these five tales with us, whether you've read the book or not. And of course, what's an event without fabulous prizes? There are prizes to be won, familiar faces to talk with, read-alongs to participate in and so many more contests and activities for everyone.

Join us in the Five Fables.

Choose Wisely.

11:41 pm - Lord Voldemort

My loyal followers, the battle is done for now. Today, my Death Eaters, you reigned terror upon those that follow a dead man's ideals, and so I consider this day's work a victory and will allow the Order to fool themselves into thinking they managed to push us back.

We need to regroup and consolidate our strength for the upcoming final battle. Today, we just gave them a taste of fear. They were brave to stand up to our powerful forces, but that bravery will be their downfall in the end. Several Order members recognized that and have defaulted to our side, weakening them further and increasing our strength. Soon, we will not have to hide.

Follow me, my loyal servants, and leave this battle for another day. Lord Voldemort will return soon enough. And to those who opposed me, who chose to follow that fool, Albus Dumbledore: Lord Voldemort will remember the choice you made today. Choose more wisely next time. Or you will lose everything.

Declare Yourself!

12:32 am - Ninja Kitten

Dark times have begun to unfold once again. This time, however, the source that started it all? George Weasley.

George Weasley is at it once again! He came into contact with a rare time turner that somehow made it through the Battle of the Department of Ministries.... and we all know that he simply cannot resist messing around with it, hoping to use it to create a new WWW product. Unfortunately, as things usually do when near a Weasley twin, things have gone horribly wrong! George has brought the entire site back to the year 1998. While this does mean that he gets to see his beloved twin, Fred, once again, it also means that Lord Voldemort is still around. Will Harry be able to win once again? Or will The Dark Lord be able to assume full control this time around?

Join us as we figure out how this one will play out!
