Please congratulate Miss Mallory Haggith on making Ravenclaw Prefect! She has been working hard lately and totally deserves it. We are still needing one more prefect to make our team perfect so if you think you fit the bill, apps are open no matter what house. All you will need to do is owl me this form:
1. How long have you been on LA?
2. How active have you been over the last couple of months?
3. If you are selected, how much time can you dedicate to your duties?
4. Do you have experience?
5. Why do you want this position?
6. Why do you think we should accept your app?
7. What is one thing you'd like to see change?
8. Give me two detailed event ideas. One for Ravenclaw, and the other for site-wide.
It's this time of the month again, ladies and gentlemen. Without any hesitation, I would like to introduce the winning piece of writing for June - the Fire Starters, brought to you by Emily Orsa and Jaiden Jung. Naturally, it is always a wonderful idea to skip a class or two and head into the wild and mysterious lands of the Forbidden forest (if you want a detention, that is), but why would they do such a thing? A million galleons question, but no more spoilers! Check it now to find out!
Fresh faces and awkward encounters. The first introduction has never been easy but bright bubbly Ava is on a case to get two boys, Bertram and Finn, to befriend each other. Will the case be solved and their assignment completed? Read on in this month's first runner up, Rainy Days and New Friends.
Coming in as this month's second runner up is Breaking the Silence. When fed up with the peaceful, quiet aura of the Hogwarts Library, unruly first-year Bethany Bubblebee attempts to put a stop to the silence, disrupting the relaxing Hisa Mortblac. Read on as the plot thickens when a vague argument between the unlikely Slytherin friends in this mischievous, hostile story.
As some of you may or may not have noticed yet, we have added a new "Out of Character Corner" forum. This will be a forum where you can talk about topics outside of the Harry Potter fandom such as movies, music, etc with other members of the site. A link to this forum has been added in the Entrance Hall. We hope you have fun and enjoy the new forum!
May's winning RPotM takes place during the midst of the Slytherclaw Prank War when two brothers battle it out in what seems to be a singing contest. The competition between the Rosenthorn twins is hilarious, especially when the boys have a bit of an accident with some silver-blue liquid! On the whole, the singing, dancing and pranking in The Singing Situation makes for an entertaining, lighthearted read.
The first runner-up is Food. Clothes and Magic by Jaiden Jung and Harper West. Antisocial Jaiden and bubbly Harper find themselves in a slightly awkward situation when the happy Hufflepuff interrupts the not-so-happy Gryffindor's meal, but the true magic of this thread is the fantastic level of character development on the writers' part. It's truly an enchanting read!
Pull Me Back In takes the second runner-up spot this month. In this thread, Eoghan Gilchrist's gentlemanly attempts to woo Gemma Gianini seem to go unappreciated, and it quickly becomes clear that the graduate Ravenclaw simply isn't good enough for the snooty Seventh Year Slytherin. What will become of their one-sided relationship? Read on to find out...
Gryffindor is currently looking for a new Prefect. Regardless of the house you are in at this time, you can still apply. If you have any questions, feel free to owl me and I will help you the best I can.

I am pleased to announce that Student Staff has organized
an amusing event for all of you to partake in. It is certainly unfortunate (but not really) that you got locked in Great Hall, but do not worry.
There will be cosy sleeping bags and plenty of pillows, but, more importantly, games and all night snacks to keep you busy. Hurry up and join us! The event won't last forever! (Ends on June 24th, 11:59 PM LA time.)
I know a lot of you have been waiting patiently for it, but it's finally that time where we open up special power applications! For anyone who is unfamiliar with special powers or how they work, please make sure to check out the special powers guide thread. This will give you the rules that come with special powers. The special power applications can be found here and are open until August 1st 11:59 pm LA time. Good luck, and if you have any questions then please feel free to owl me.
April's first runner up goes to Close As Strangers with the lovely Isabelle Asdale and Sebastian Fitzwilliam. With emotions running high, and feelings residing from a past relationship it's hard to tell what direction they're going to take. This topsy-turvy Role-play is well worth the read. Will Isabelle fall back into old habits? Will Seb be able to coax her with his charm? Will these two ever get back together or is it really finished? This will certainly have you sitting on edge.
Second place goes to the lovely Miss Hawthorne and Mister Rosenthorn in Watching the Day Go By. Rose stumbles upon a relaxing Sebastian. The witty banter between the two are quite interesting as they go back and forth coming up with nicknames for each other. Want to see where it's headed? Go ahead and check it out. You're sure to be amused by the two Slytherins.
Bumping into the ever so popular Slytherin Prefect, Matt, Deliana is flustered. Already having a bit of bad luck, things go from bad to worse. Strange things are always happening here at Hogwarts, but in our third runner up, At This Moment it All Became Clear, you might find something even more unusual. Their matching birth marks fill the air with unspoken questions. What could this possibly mean? You'll have to read on to find out!
Bringing it to your attention that there is a new thread in the Beginner's Guide, entitled Hogwarts Rules. It is a simple reminder about regulations, existing in Hogwarts.
While in most cases breaking these rules is not going to affect you in any way, it may cause a certain amount of suffering for your characters. Please, be kind to them. I am sure they did nothing at all to deserve all the detentions and other consequences.
Hope you had a blast during the term break and now are ready to resume studying, refreshed and well-rested. At any moment available, our classrooms will be open and flooded by the lessons, provided by our favourite professors, both old and new.
