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.

Congrats to Nathaniel Rosenthorn and Asher Spaulding who have made Raven Prefects and congrats to our lovely Meghan Frisk who has offered to move into the position of our Quidditch Captain. Well done you three! Thank you to everyone else for the wonderful applications.

In March’s role-play of the month two distracted students find themselves in what starts out as a rather awkward, embarrassing interaction. Meghan Frisk and William Northam delve into the inner workings of their characters, showing excellent development and a wonderful command of their own writing. Will this little faux pas turn out to be just the distraction these two need? Read Finding a Distraction to find out.
In March’s first runner up, Nothing More Calming Than a Book , We see that the stress of trying to run a Quidditch team has started to get to Roseanne. Trying to get her mind off of the Quidditch tryouts that she had held, she seems to finds solace in her ancient runes book that she has with her. On the other end of things, Vixen Vonduke is troubled by an owl she had received from her family and seems to be thinking it over when she runs into Roseanne. With Roseanne needing a distraction and Vixen in need of some academic help to keep her parents happy, Roseanne accepts Vixen’s plea for her to be her tutor, but how will things turn out from there? You’ll need to keep reading to find out!
March's second runner up is a tale of gentle romance between two unlikely companions. There isn't the slightest trace of rivalry between Slytherin Prefect Matt GreenSpark and Gryffindor beauty Meara McKay; in fact, their friendship seems set in the stars. In this role-play the two share a tender moment atop the Astronomy Tower, and a deep emotional connection is made when the topic of parents is raised. Want to know what happens?
