Re: Week Three - Nepal

Nepal's current flag colors are crimson red, which is the National Color and color of the rhododendron (Nepal's national flower) and blue which is the color of peace. I liked this, so that is why I chose to incorporate both of these colors in my flag. The blue triangles across the flag represent the...

I'm fairly certain that just beyond these broken branches is well hidden path to the dragon sanctuary! why else would this seemingly random clearing be here?

Re: Week One – San Marino

My contribution to the Museum of Curiosities is this large sphere! I found it about fourteen years ago while on a train from New Jersey, headed to New York. While at a stop I noticed a small box under the seat across from me. As no one was around i picked it up to see what it might be. Imagine my su...

Re: Will there be a Sequel to Cursed Child?

I am kind of done with Harry Potter's story, but definitely not the world! I'd love a story based at one of the other schools, or a RAB story, maybe something more about the founding of Hogwarts? Cursed Child was ok, it just didn't fulfill the (admittedly high) hopes I had for it. I wish JKR had con...

Re: New mobile game - Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery

One thing I really do like though is that your character has a hand in shaping the HP universe as we've come to know it — from giving Bill Weasley a taste of curse-breaking to helping Hagrid name Fang . Yes! I think JKR actually put a decent amount of thought into house this game works, as well as ...

Re: Study tips

I also love having a to-do list. I have a Google Sheets document of all the things due and when, and then I organize it by deadline in each category (classes, Dungeons, HOLLERS, Misc., newsletters, The Sett, teaching.) The feeling of checking something off really is quite awesome! Then i highlight t...

To celebrate the excited of the 428th Quidditch World Cup, Andrew Lincoln (narrator of Quidditch Through the Ages) was sorted into his Hogwarts House, as well as finding out his Patronus!

Magic in the World

So I've recently started the Bartimaeus Trilogy (on book 2 now) and the magic system in it is quite different than that of Harry Potter, or many other series that I've read. This series has Magicians (as opposed to witches/wizards/warlocks) who have no power of their own. Instead, they have the math...

Re: New mobile game - Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery

I've reached the point where I've run out of story and can only level up my character/attributes/friendships until more is released. Here are my thoughts: -The art design is still amazing, very well done! -The storyline actually does get better and I'm pretty happy with the direction it's going -I l...

Re: New mobile game - Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery

The commentary throughout is fun though! My favorite one so far is when Penny's boggart is revealed to be a werewolf, Tonks asks why someone would be afraid of werewolves, and your character responds "Well, Tonks, I assume it's because werewolves are terrifying, murderous creatures.&qu...

Re: New mobile game - Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery

Some of the interactions in classes are amusing, like talking to Madam Hooch about her hair or glaring at Merula in order to gain experience. Yes! I love those, and the background characters doing things, especially in flying class like when they get hit in the face with the broom! The questions fo...
