Hello, Puffs! Welcome to the porn term Term XXX! I’d apologize in advance for all the really bad puns and double entendres, but I’m not even sorry, so let’s get this column rocking.

For one last time, let’s give a round of applause to Dani/pinkphoenix1985 and Crystal/bluemermaid for being awesome Prefects last term. Now you guys are stuck with me (Kristine/flipflop_diva) and Caitie/caitieness for four months — although Caitie is awesome, so you should be lucky to be stuck with her. Or handcuffed to her. Or tied up with her. Whatever you prefer.

In case you missed it, our intro post is here, along with a bunch of links that you might find handy.
Term XXX questions and suggestions
Big badger and newbie sigtag maker signups
Get a Knight name
Sign the birthday log
Add your name to the spreadsheet
Come to chat!

Other exciting things that you might have missed: Results of the Term XXIX Puff Awards have been posted! Congrats to everyone who won, placed or was nominated! You all are awesome <333

Also, go get down and dirty in the new in-house! You know you want to ;) In all seriousness, though (HA!), most people can still use a couple more questions to max out, so go ask people whatever you most want to know about them and then go tell us all your dirty secrets! There’s tons of time left — it’s not due till 11:59pm UTC on Sept. 29 — but if I have already started, you can too!

And finally, it’s time for a couple Puff shoutouts.
• Congrats to the winners of the August Puff in-house, who once again solved puzzles in a crazy fast time: SAM/samelthecamel, Crystal/bluemermaid and Dani/pinkphoenix1985.
• And best of all, congrats to ALL of us for winning the first Clubs activity of Term XXX: Ministry of Magic’s Hands of Time. That’s how we do it, bbs!

Well, that is all for this issue! I will be back next time, but until then, go hard, Puffies, go hard <3333
