A User-Chosen Christmas ItemPosted by HEX Staff on November 20, 2017 - 9:51 am
The Hogwarts house-elves want to make something special this year, but they can't agree on what to make. After a few polite arguments about what you all might like best, they decided they should simply ask. That way, they can make an item that you come up with! Submit your ideas for this new holiday item in the thread in the Entrance Hall. At the end of the week, we'll take the best suggestions we receive and place them in a poll for everyone to vote. The winning idea will be brought to life by one of our talented item designers and given away this Christmas!
So what are you waiting for? Head on over to this thread to learn more details and to make your suggestions. We can't wait to hear from you!

"And then, of course, there was the sheer size of the library; tens of thousands of books; thousands of shelves; hundreds of narrow rows..."
The Library of Hogwarts is filled with tens of thousands of books, each with it's own story to tell. Aside from the stories found in these books, perhaps the most interesting kind are the ones shared in muted whispers. Secrets that were mean't only for the receiver, but have somehow travelled to some unsuspecting ears. What did you overhear? Tell us all about it in Fan Fiction's November Theme Prompt.
We also have a whole host of activities for you. Be sure to join all of them to get monthly participation tickets to win House Points in our Monthly Raffle:
Picture Prompt | Guess the Character | Continue the Story | Writing Circle | Character Journals

Who do you know has hair that changes color at will? Who's one of the only people you know whose Patronus changed once they fell in love? If you guessed Nymphadora Tonks, you were correct! Although, I'd suggest you don't call her that if you'd like to keep your wand intact. Zoom on over to the Q&A where you'll be able to interact with this month's guest!
This is your last chance to earn tickets for our November Raffle. As always, be sure you're keeping our Watch Thread on watch to stay up to date on our exciting events!
