Postby Prof. Tarma Amelia Black » Mon Nov 13, 2017 2:33 am

Scrivenshaft's Quill Shop proudly sponsors Day 2 of our Hogsmeade Literary Festival!

You pay a visit to Scrivenshaft's stall and are greeted by a plethora of writing equipment. You see in the corner of the stall an advertisement for a new quill. Describe or show the advertisement.

To complete this task, you need to create an original graphic advertisement or write a descriptive of a brand new Quill. If you write a descriptive, please make sure it is at least 150 words for full points. If you create a graphic, please keep it to 600x600 pixels or less in size.

Send your Quill Advertisement to us at hol.bookclub @ gmail.com (without the spaces) with the subject line ‘Week 3 - Quill Advertisement - HOL ID’ by November 19th, 11:59pm HOL time. You will earn 10 points for your Quill Advertisement.

Maybe it would be good if someone invented a quill that can turn into a wand after saying a spell. The spell should be "Calamus Mutatio Baculum Magicum", because that is Latin for (pen change wand), which is what the pen is doing.

It would be used for protection inside a classroom in case something or someone attacks. Also since you should have a pen in class you will not have to remember both your pen and your wand. However, sadly you will have to say a lot of words. Luckily, you can whisper or say it under your breath and it would still work.

I think the price for something this extraordinary would probably be about twelve to sixteen galleons. The price is so high because it would be hard to make.

The hardest part of making this pen slash wand would be putting so much magic into something that also had to write.

Quills have long been made with either goose or duck feathers, some tipped with a metal head while others weren't, leading to endless sharpening and quills needing to be exchanged often. The metal heads on the other hand were often scratchy and could easily leave blotches on the parchment, especially in uneven areas. This has caused many a witch and wizard grey hairs, but no longer! We now introduce the Soft Quill, featuring a wide selection in feathers; both goose and duck for the traditionalist, as well as pheasant, peacock and swan for those with a slightly more flashy sense of style. We've also introduced dyed feathers to please those who wish to be able to pick a certain style, or even just keep track of which quill they use for which ink, so one does not suddenly use the wrong quill for the wrong colour ink and inadvertently mix the two colours.

But best of all, the quill has a soft rubber tip on the metal head, which makes the quill glide softly across any surface and makes scratches and splotches much less likely.

Come in and try today! We know you will love it.
