Conquering Death


1:41 pm - DEATH



Psst, everyone, gather 'round. I've got a riddle for the wise among you, and I will not repeat myself. What do mortals fear and strive to conquer above all else? Why, myself, of course. Since the beginning of time, countless Muggles and magical folk alike have sought to uncover my secrets, some in an effort to escape my cool embrace and others to exert control over my dominion. Regardless of their instrument of choice - be it sword, wand, or science - such efforts have always had one thing in common: they failed.

Now, I'm sure you're all wondering why Death incarnate, resplendent in the flowing black robes your finite minds have surely Conjured to comprehend my eternal essence, has deigned to congregate before you. Well, the answer is simple, my inferior audience. A battle is brewing. A battle of such immensity that none of you could possibly hope to emerge unscathed. Ah, but that's the thing about mortals, isn't it? You simply have to try.

Very well. Head over here to prepare for battle. Be forewarned; many of you will perish, and I will not hesitate to shepherd you to what lies Beyond. It is my birthright, after all. For a lucky few, though... well, perhaps you might find yourselves armed with the equipment necessary to combat Death. I welcome the challenge.

Promotions to Administrator


12:38 pm - John


Many of you know that promotions to the Administrator position do not happen very often. Today I'm excited to announce that not one, but two people are being promoted to this top position. Today, Jo and Jenni have been promoted to the position of Administrator!

Both have continually exhibited all of the qualities we look for in an individual for this position and have committed so much hard work and dedication to HEX throughout the years. I've worked with Jo for a long time now, and she is always up for anything, no matter how difficult. When she takes on something, it is always done with the highest of quality, leadership, and with so much care. Jenni has been a huge asset to whichever team she has been on. Her calm and understanding nature have been a huge force in her areas and have contributed to her being great leader. From working with Jenni, I know she exhibits all qualities of being a great leader.

Please join me in congratulating Jo and Jenni!

HEX Pride


12:12 am - Ry240



Pride has come a long way in recent years and we hope the love continues to thrive and with each passing year it will only grow bigger and stronger. Dumbledore's Office is back for our sixth annual Pride event, which we'd like to celebrate with all of you. Our differences are what make us all human and they should be celebrated, but as should our love and enjoyment of something that can unite us, such as our shared love of Harry Potter.

With that in mind, please join us for HEX Pride 2019!

Summer Classes Have Returned!


6:22 am - Zoe



For those of you who were on HEX last summer, you may remember summer classes. If not, well... surprise! Although the official term has ended and your books are likely stashed away somewhere deep within your trunk, we thought that everyone could use a little more educational fun. Thanks to Steph, Kasey, and Zoe you can look forward to six more weeks of winter summer learning.

Since these are summer classes, they do not offer House points. However, you will be well rewarded with shiny galleons for your efforts. Galleons to help you buy all the pretty things you want on HEX. The amount will depend on how many questions you get right, so be sure you're reading thoroughly! Are you ready? Click here to dive right in or click here to head over to the Headmaster's Study to discuss the classes with your fellow students!

We will be offering three classes, with each class consisting of three lessons. You will only have two weeks to complete the lessons, and there will be no make-up homework, so time is of the essence. If you have any questions, feel free to ask them in this thread or owl The Headmistress.

And because of all the stress, it is also the season of one of nature’s most fearsome creatures: Bridezillas. So, grab a copy of June’s issue and take a look into these joyous occasions with us!

Did you miss an edition, or want to re-read your favorite articles? Check out our Official Archives to get your hands on all of the Daily Prophet's former issues.

Publications Management - June Update


9:30 pm - Morgan93



The Newstand loves a good party, and this month we're continuing May's Cinco de Mayo celebration with a discussion of the festive holiday featured in last month's Daily Prophet.

And since parties, as well as the looming end-of-term, bring up a wide range of emotions for all of us, what better way to explore all those feelings than with a discussion about our favorite little feeling faces: the emojis. To make that exploration extra-fun, you'll have the opportunity to pair up with a friend---or to make a new one---as you try to Guess Who, emoji-style!

To top off all the festivities, remember that participation in any or all of the activities featured this month will earn you tickets to The Newstand's Quarterly Raffle, where you have a chance to become the proud new owner of our very own Gazette the Owl. Now that's enough to make anyone 🙂!
