Re: Quidditch Pickups... the 2017-18 Edition

Our third pickup last afternoon had the best turnout yet! We began with an old favorite, strapping cauldrons to our head for Creaothceann. On the final question, I wondered "why does it always take half an hour to get between any two points in the castle?" But then it was time to form team...

Re: Quidditch Pickups... the 2017-18 Edition

We had our second pickup of the season last night; it came complete with all sorts of exciting randomness! We began by playing two games of Xany... on the Cascade set. (Because Xany recognizes first through third place and Cascade randomly chooses an answer out of many, you might not know that you t...

Re: Week 2: Ghostly Conversations N

The Ghost of the Bloody Clay continued playing along with the musical saw until the song ended. Realizing that no one around seemed to enjoy the sound of the saw, he decided not to try to accompany the next song with his musical accompaniment. Instead, he decided to float along towards a different c...

Re: Week 2: Ghostly Conversations N

The Ghost of Bloody Clay listened to the music and wondered how he could join in. He didn't have the right voice for singing, but maybe there was something nearby he could play to join in? He looked to his right and found a musical saw, which was next to a bow that seemed almost custom tailored to h...

Re: Week 2: Ghostly Conversations N

The Ghost of Bloody Clay decided now was a good moment to arrive to the party. He floated by Temperance's mouldy cheese plate but wasn't in the mood for that at the moment. However, he heard that there would be haggis at the hors d'oeuvres table, and that was what he was craving at the moment. So he...

Re: Quidditch Pickups... the 2017-18 Edition

We had our first pickup on October 1, and although we didn't have the largest crowd, we still had an exciting time! First, at the request of Katelin, we played a round of Quodpot on the Cascade set. The bot was still set on the Quidditch World Cup teams, so it was Ireland vs Bulgaria for one last ti...

Re: Write-up segments for weekends and forum activities

The Snitch Tournament has finally ended, and with it, the Quidditch World Cup - in a thrilling reversal of 1994! Fifty-five minutes into the final match, Arielle Lemoyne of Bulgaria beat out Amy Lupin of Ireland to the final Golden Snitch of the tournament, avenging her loss in the semifinals of las...

House points are different from game points. The game points are posted above and here are the House Points that will be added to the points of the Houses. This will be edited after each game.

Re: Week 6-Moving Forward

I'm hoping to see Slytherin win a House Cup after coming so close these past two years. As for NEWTs? I'm already sitting my OWLs... so I figure that once those are behind me, I definitely plan on graduating! And after that, it might be time to become a professor (I'll probably teach a class or 2 wh...

Re: Week 5-Magical Games and Sports

In real life I'd probably be rubbish at Quidditch; my coordination and visualization skills are weak PRECISELY in those areas that would be needed for a broom-based flying sport. Fortunately, my character is not so crippled; as Will Lestrange I'd totally be a Quidditch star playing whatever position...

Re: Week 4-Pets

My pet is a six foot long python named Coily. I love talking to her about my day and hearing her advice in Parseltongue (a language I speak pretty well; most Lestranges get practice with the language from their childhood... since we're not lucky enough to inherit it we have to work for it!) Coily gi...

Re: Week 4-Awesome Awards

I don't think I won a shiny for it, but I'm probably proudest of winning the Snitch tournament in 2015! For actual awards I've won? The logic puzzle awards I won in fall 2013 were pretty nice, as were most of my Quidditch awards (though the matches I get MVP for do not tend to be the ones I'd give m...

Re: College Football Season 2017

This season looked like it was going to be a train wreck as far as I was concerned, with the UCLA Bruins being destroyed by Texas A&M for much of the game (38-10 at the half, and the Aggies would score 6 more points to start off the third). But UCLA pulled off a spectacular comeback with five un...
