A User-Chosen Christmas Item


9:51 am - HEX Staff


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!

Fan Fiction Forum


10:10 am - Desiree Snow




"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!

Come and join us in the Forbidden Forest forum as we find more about this in Patchin' up the Pumpkin. All entries are due November 30, 2017, at 11:59 p.m. HEX time.

HINT Forums :: November


7:30 am - duckie



The next chapter of HINTory has Alex and Skye dealing with some dangerous dragons on their way to Denmark! Come read the next installment, or catch up from the beginning! Each chapter includes a poll- your votes helps us determine what happens next in the story, and you might even get some House Points out of it.

While our globetrotters get sidetracked on their journey, they could use a little help from you guys! Being such a long way from home, they are longing for something to remind them of their native country. What better way to show them your support than with a thoughtful care package? Join us for Fantastic Finds for your chance at 2000 House Points and the HINTspiration Award!

"Know your enemy and know yourself, and you can fight a hundred battles without disaster."

Ugh, siblings can be the worst! *cue eye roll* But just how much worse would they be if they were your nemesis? Come explore the possibilities in Siblings: World's Best Enemies. If you'd rather not not deal with your siblings this month, come save the RPC from the seemingly indomitable forces of Artron and Captain Cody! Put your heroic abilities to the test in Just Marvel-lous. With all of these superhero shenanigans going on, don't forget to stop by the Raffle Thread to take a look at this month's super prizes!

Even the strongest hero needs to take a break occasionally, so head over to the Teaching Center to participate in Meet the Parents. In this fun RP exercise, Maggie's future in-laws need you to help them out as they meet her for the first time.
