New Issue of The Quibbler!


1:14 am - Zoe



I don't know about you, but I definitely didn't need a map to find my way down to the Newsstand so I could drop off this month's issue of The Quibbler! ...okay, I didn't need it for the entire way there. Only a few minutes!

While I stand here and try to figure out if I was supposed to take a left or a right to get back to the office, you should grab your own map and venture out and snag your own copy! The April issue of The Quibbler is ready to guide you on your next adventure... although be sure to keep in mind that I don't know that any of us know how to read maps either. :look:

If you have any questions, concerns, or comments about The Quibbler, please either visit The Newsstand or send an owl to Zoe.

Archives Update


4:50 pm - Edmundus



As the school year ends, it's not too early to start prepping for those end of term exams. Why not hop over to unriddle a Puzzling Potion and see if you can remember what all these ingredients add up to? Or maybe some secretive schoolwork as you try to become an animagus in Tricky Transformations. But be sure to practice hard in order to avert a Transfiguration Tragedy.

There's plenty more fun available. You'll find it on the Table of Contents. Participating in activities earns you chances at the wonderful Book of Records too! Hope to see you around.

Fan Fiction Forum


12:10 am - desi




"Arnold Weasley, who was charged with possession of a flying car two years ago, was yesterday involved in a tussle with several Muggle law-keepers ("policemen") over a number of highly aggressive dustbins. Mr Weasley appears to have rushed to the aid of "Mad-Eye" Moody, the aged ex-Auror who retired from the Ministry when no longer able to tell the difference between a handshake and attempted murder."

One issue that has always been unknown was just how Barty Crouch Jr. was able to get one over on Mad-Eye Moody and capture him before the start of Harry's fourth year. Head over to April's Theme Prompt and write a story about Alastor Moody vs. Barty Crouch Jr.

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:

And, of course, don't forget that participation in Author's Notes could win you an item exclusive to the Fan Fiction department!

Mastering the Cards


3:28 pm - Zoe



The entire country of Kettlesworth was in uproar. The news of the special, limited edition golden cards being released and a chance to tour the famous wizard card factory was a once in a lifetime chance. Everyone was buying all of the chocolate that the stores were allowed to sell. Fortunately for those who were less well-off, people could only buy two chocolate frogs due to just how special the opportunity was.

After handing over your galleon, you immediately tear into your goodies. WHOA! Before you can even finish tearing the paper off of your first frog, you see a golden frog nestled in the box, shining brightly. Grinning from ear to ear, you clutch your exclusive tour invite in your hand as you wait for your chance to win the grand prize.

That's right! The Ravenclaw House staff invites you all to join us in Mastering the Cards as we learn more about all of those famous wizard cards and chocolate frogs that we've all come to know and love! While you're there, don't forget to keep your eyes peeled for wayward cards - and other things... - that might be strewn about. You never know what you'll find!

RPC APRIL UPDATES


11:05 am - Kasey




This month, the RPC is - "breaking the fourth wall!"

Irene, you’re not supposed to be talking! Get back in your story! Anyway, before I was so rudely interrupted, I was saying that the RPC is going to be breaking some walls this month. Step through the fourth wall and see if you can solve this Jigsaw Jumble.

"And once you solve that mess of a puzzle, make sure that The Story Goes On for us characters in this month’s freesty-"

Didn’t I tell you to go back to your story, Irene? I turn my back for one minute and you climb through the fourth wall again! What am I going to do with you? Regardless, back to our regularly scheduled announcement. In this month’s roleplay of the month, you’re going to be experiencing some Profound Perspectives as your characters undergo a life-changing event. Hopefully, your characters will behave better than mine.

"I'm really feeling the love! But remember folks, participating in the RPC's activities will grant you tickets to their April Participation Raffle, and I heard there’s plenty of great prizes to be won!"

For the last time, Irene, get back to your story!

HINT FORUMS :: APRIL


11:45 am - Kasey



Yes, yes, you've heard correctly! I have decided to pass on my experience and knowledge to those less fortunate in the journalistic arts. What? What do you mean you haven't heard of the Rita Skeeter School of Journalism? Someone isn't reading the right papers - it's been all the buzz in my own personal columns and articles, the only things worth reading. You must not have heard about the scandalous affair between one Herbology professor and some unknown blonde either. You truly are out of the loop. But, never fear! You're hearing about it now, so come on over to Magical Theories and let's see how many proper Myth Makers we have here.

And, don't forget, along with my invaluable knowledge, I'm giving away 11,000 House Points and some some gossip-worthy prizes:

Happy Birthday Fools' Day!!


2:18 am - Fred and George


While at first we were a little caught off guard having so many people visiting The Burrow for our birthday, we've chosen to look at it as a beautiful opportunity! You see, we may have been experimenting with those crackers everyone seems so fond of for the last couple months, and think now's the time to have everyone test them out for us. We'll be throwing them into whatever rooms seem most crowded, you may want to duck!

In the spirit of celebrating the best day of the year, we'll be randomly popping up and quizzing you about none other than ourselves! Better get our question right, though, or we'll make it so you're stuck in The Burrow forever. It's only fair.

Come join us in The Burrow to celebrate our birthday with us- we may have some other things up our sleeves, but it's sure to be a blast!
