You spoke, we're answering:


7:16 pm - Ninja Kitten


Hearing that we were increasing the point totals (for year move ups) from 100 to 1200 upset a fair few of you. We realize that it is a HUGE increase (though still slightly less than half the maximum points available ;) ) and as such have come up with what we hope will be a wonderful compromise.

Each of you will now be able to do make-up homework. That's right, you may go back and do assignments previously assigned that you missed, to a certain point. For more information on this new feature, please go to the Entrance Hall or click the image above for ease. More in depth information will be provided there.

Say what now?


8:57 pm - Ninja Kitten



There were three, noble and great. The first one was fair and gentle like the touch of a breeze in spring. Then came the other, with strong arms and dark allure. At last, the third one valued bravery and wisdom, ambition and equality.

It came a time, thereafter, when those three decided to fight for glory. And so they were each represented by a fragile flower, a young man as fast as wind and a bright soul with his future ahead.

But a curious thing happened then. A fourth one emerged from the flames, chosen to carry a great burden upon his shoulders. And so, these four went on the path designed for three.

Once Upon a Restock


1:31 am - Lu



What's that, dearie? A Resurrection Stone, did you say?

Have you ever wondered what would happen if Mr. Gold found out what the Resurrection Stone was capable of? Say he did discover its abilities - who would he bring back? What would he do with it?

We're about to find out. The infamous Mr. Gold is in town and will be doing his best to bring certain people back from the very questionable beyond. The Storybrooke gang has something to say about it, though, and will do whatever it takes to keep the Stone out of Mr. Gold's crocodile hands. What about you? Which side of the great divide do you fall on? Join the whole gang (and a few Hufflepuff staffers!) in Once Upon a Restock. We're sure your questions will be answered once you get there. And remember - magic always comes with a price.

Dueling Judge Applications Open


10:24 pm - Alisyn Malfoy




Well now, the infamous Professor Gilderoy Lockhart recently spent his Christmas break gathering more information for the newest installment of his best-selling Defense Against the Dark Arts books: Dealing with Dementors. Unfortunately, this has left Professor Snape scrambling to get everything ready for the next set of duels while the pompous peacock speaks with his agent, has a new portrait made for his author page, and continues to answer fanmail from his adoring public.

From what the students can see, the Potions Master is becoming rather frazzled, giving out detentions at the drop of a hat and darkly hinting at poisoning some of his less-favored students. To help Professor Snape (and more importantly, protect yourself from his wrath), why don't you try to help him with this latest headache?

Head over to the Entrance Hall for more information on how to apply!

Google Ads Issues


10:26 pm - John


Many of you have reported the issue of the Google Ads automatically redirecting you to certain sites outside of HEX. We definitely understand that this is quite annoying and have been in direct contact with Google to try and get this fixed, as it is all on their end. They assured us that they are working on getting these types of ads removed. We are also adding the websites to the block filter as soon as they are reported.

Thanks for your patience while we sort all of this out. As always, we appreciate everyone that continues to display ads on the site and support HEX in that way.

Timey Wimey Hogwarts


4:23 am - JoJo


In the throes of madness and love, Snape finally decided to do what it takes to get the only thing he has ever wanted: Lily. Somehow, he has managed to get his hands on a Time Turner and has decided to get back in time and change the course of history, an action that can send the whole wizarding and Muggle world into chaos. Fortunately for us, the new Doctor is paying attention and decides to intervene. Will he be on time to save the world once more?

That's what we'll figure out in Gryffindor's new event, Timey Wimey Hogwarts!
