What's that I hear? It sounds like a bunch of people having fun on the beach. Oh yeah, that's right, the Huffleclaw Spring Break! event is going on! This event ends on May 1st, so make sure to head on down to the beach and join in on all the ongoing fun!
Links can be found in both Hufflepuff's and Ravenclaw's CR. Can't have you forgetting anything in your rush to get to the fun, now can we?
Our winning RP for this month is Jinx, Where are You? with Arianwyn Harries and Cassie Talbot. It is a delightful RP about a boy looking for his lost cat the bond which forms between two strangers. A cute tale with a little bit of mystery and a pleasure to read.
First runner up is You Could Be of Use. When First Year Edwin Cavendish finds Second Year Dellyla Rosier at the brink of the Forbidden Forest, a step on the foot becomes something more. With two very strong personalities, a chance meeting in the middle of the night opens up unspoken possibilities as each must unravel their own, true motivations for being there... Let alone those of the other.
Our second runner up for this month is Old Faces, New Places with fifth year Bailey Marx, and third year Matt Greenspark. It is the catching up of two old and dear friends and it all started with an owl. This thread is filled with playfulness and innocent flirting.
Congratulations to the winners and to the runner ups. Keep on RPing, everyone.

Due to having a very busy schedule, Kasia Lisette has decided to step down as Head of Slytherin. Though she's stepping down as Head of Slytherin, she will still be continuing on as a professor and teaching History of Magic! With this, I would like to congratulate Mrs. Vanity Sturbridge who is now the reigning Head of Slytherin!

The older brother of her beloved best friend, the presently slightly shattered Jonas enrolls in Hogwarts shortly after being kicked out of his old school following a ”minor incident”.

Runner-Up for this month’s RPoTM goes to Three’s Company by Lon Hamilton, Tobias Landon, and Finnick Avery. The dynamic duo of Tobias Landon and Finnick Avery are still, to their best mate Lon’s dismay, buzzing after their most recent victories, when the trio hears Gryffindor’s celebrating just tables away in the Great Hall. Despite Lon’s pleas, the two daredevils scheme a comeback for Slytherin that’ll shut their schoolmates in the maroon right up, and this one ought to be good! What tricks do Tobias and Finnick have up their sleeves this time? Will Lon be able to stop them before its too late? This humorous and well-written role play will have you thirsty for answers!
Second Runner-Up goes to Horror stories in the Forbidden Forest. Yeah. What a brilliant idea. by Basiliscus Bragge and Dellyla Rosier. It certainly was a brilliant idea that landed them in this spot. A comfortable friendship between a Slytherin and a Gryffindor has brought them to explore the ever mysterious Forbidden Forest. As the atmosphere sets in, one could not resist the urge to tell stories... horror ones in particular especially when your companion isn't too brave. Read more to join in their little adventure.
The graphics team have been busy lately making many items for you to spend your hard earned Galleons on. And with that in mind, I would like to present to you two new stores which are now open.
Found in Hogsmeade is Dante's Shoe Inferno which is the place to find all those cute shoes to match those outfits you might like to wear. Also opening is a new clothing store in Paris called Vanity's Fair. Both of these new stores will be stocked with new items as they are made so keep an eye on them.
Also, for those of you who wish to take a break from Hogwarts or who are tired of shopping at the same stores in Hogsmeade every weekend, you can now catch a train to Paris from Diagon Alley. This link can be found in the "plain text" version. Just click on that.
Why not explore the stores for new items and go and spend some money.
We hope everyone had a fun time with the Valentine's Day Ball, but now it's time for us to wrap it and announce all the winners of this year's Valentine's Day Ball. Without further ado, we give you your winners!
For the mask coloring contest the first prize goes to Katharine Thompson as she made a beautifully hand painted mask that we couldn't take our eyes off of! Second place goes to Clarence Ballard for his steampunk mask, and third place goes to Rikuto Jun for his ”heartless” submission. Well done to all of you for making wonderful masks!
Lastly the Valentine's Day Ball Awards are as follows:
Best Kisser: Zadrina Gibbs
Snog Hoarder: Clarence Ballard
Most Romantic: Hadrian Magnus
Cinderella & Prince Charming: Brynlee & Janae Silversmit
The "Love Sucks" Award: Zadrina Gibbs
Most people just create their threads and then abandon them, mainly because others never really post in them. I just want to remind you all that you are more than welcome to post in people's threads... that's what the whole purpose was from the beginning.
Also, if you're looking for plot, you can double post in your own thread stating "I'm in need of ____ and need someone to fill that role." Then, you can post there telling them that you're interested. Keep in mind that half of the time, people aren't going to come to you... you have to come to them.
So yeah, plot pages aren't just meant to be created and sit there looking pretty... please make use of them :).
Happy Valentine's Day LA! With this day, the Valentine's Masquerade Ball begins! Bring your mask, your date, and best attire to the ballroom.
Don't forget to take part in the Kissing Booths and enjoy creating your very own mask provided by your own Student Staff. I hear there are some prizes in store for the winners.
You'll also get a chance to send that special someone a love letter and have it displayed for all to see. The catch? They won't know who you are! But you'll get to show how much you appreciate them publicly.
Don't forget to vote in the Valentine's Ball Awards! Let us know what you think!
