Fan Fiction Forum

"Sunshine, daisies, butter mellow,
Turn this stupid, fat rat yellow."

Very little is known about how exactly a spell is created.

Want to take a guess at how some of the greatest spells were created? Head over to November's Theme Prompt and write about it.

Are you more of a reader than a writer? Then head on over to Reader's Digest, where the audience gets to shine! Don't forget to participate in the following activities to earn tickets towards the Monthly Raffle:

Publications Management - November Updates

9:26 am - LinSpinner

Boo! This month, the Newsstand is bringing you some terrifyingly eerie activities. October's issue of The Quibbler explored the spooky world of haunted houses. Come share your thoughts about it in our discussion. Have you ever been to a haunted house?

Okay, maybe school isn't quite as scary as hauntings and ghosts, but we promise there is more spookiness in store. But first, September's WWN broadcast went back to school. Join us in the classroom and discuss all things school, classes, and learning.

Boo! Back to the spooky. The Daily Prophet spent October writing about haunted locations in Britain. Now, we need your help to solve a Murder Mystery. Can you find the clues and determine who killed the chef?

Exploring any of these haunted tasks - who says that schools can't be haunted? - will earn you tickets to The Newsstand Quarterly Raffle and a chance at some otherworldly prizes.
