Muggle ExtremePosted by HEX Staff on April 1, 2021 - 12:02 am
Oh, almighty rubber duck! It looks like Arthur Weasley was a bit too enthusiastic with his experiments, and now magic has disappeared. Poof, gone! Molly Weasley is not amused, and neither is the Ministry of (the now non-existent) Magic. While the Ministry officials are working as quickly as possible to restore the magical world we know and love dearly, it looks like we are stuck in the nightmare titled 'A Day in the Life of a Muggle'.
But, hey! Maybe you can take this opportunity to learn all about these moving staircases - what are they called again? ... Escapators?
The Heart of PixarPosted by Kasey on March 29, 2021 - 12:00 am
Urgh, what is that in my boot? Riley wondered, pausing to take off her shoe and shake it out. A snake wriggled as it flung from the boot and hit the ground hard. Sighing, she then slid the boot back on and continued on her walk to school, moving her head back and forth to the lovely melody a man played on his guitar. The song filled her with such joy that she found herself stopping to smell a beautiful plant growing in a boot on the stoop of one of the stores. So engrossed in the plant, she didn't even notice Elastigirl floating overhead in the distance. It would have been quite the sight to see. Looking down at her watch, fear overtook her as she saw the numbers go from 8:29 to 8:30. Oh no! I'm going to be late! Curse those darn easter eggs!
The Gryffindor House staff invites you to join us in The Heart of Pixar. Don't let that lamp blind you, though, as you'll need your keen eyesight to catch the easter eggs in the Gryffindor Common Room before they flicker off the screen.

Come out, come out, wherever you are...
Sneaking around in bushes and behind statues is none other our very own Leprechaun!

Caretakers Are Hiring!Posted by Sammy on March 8, 2021 - 12:56 pm
The Caretakers are hiring! Ever wandered through the corridors of HEX and found yourself wondering how they are kept up, what Filch does to whip everyone into shape and how they are kept so clean and sparkling? Do you wander through dreaming of the opportunity to work under the leadership of Filch and Mrs Norris? Some may say the Caretakers run things themselves rather than Filch doing it, but that's a subject up for debate.
If the Caretaking team is something that has piped your interest in the past, now is the time to join the ranks! We are looking to hire a number of Junior Caretakers to join the team, as well as a Lead Caretaker to take over The Loo!
For further information on how you can apply to be a Junior Caretaker, head on over to the applications thread if you have any questions or wish to apply.
If becoming a Lead Caretaker is what you fancy, head over to The Loo for further information. Please note at this stage only Wix users may apply for the position and only Wix users will have access to the link.

As most of you know, HEX relies on volunteers to moderate the website, and keep everything running smoothly. If we didn't have our moderators, we would not have the site that we all love.

Therefore, we are proud to announce that Enyra has been promoted from Junior Staff member to Staff.
In addition, the following moderators have been promoted to Global Moderator: Are, GildaGlen, Jordan, Katie Belby, kmdald, Miss Padfoot, Natasha, Nick, and Springjokat.
