Hello again everyone! I hope you are all having a great term! No new cubs yet!

Lions Wandering the Halls of HIH

Martine/la_loony: Lost in the Woods
Alexandra/coolceruleanblu: The Knitted Cauldron
Steph/alwaysawkward: That's Irrelevant
Jess/rhye: Bloodless
Alex/gryffinwhore: Spiral Queen
Maryann/memeann012084: Graphics on Mane Street
Carola/carola_d: Cellar Door
Jassy/melas_2ndsoul: Jewels and Cinnamon (tag not active yet so no link)

We have 2 slots open if you are interested in running a shop!

Rhye/rhye: 12 Harry Potter icons

Nothing :(

We really have not been very active yet this term. We are probably all exhausted from last term. I know I personally spend the majority of my days and nights vomiting because the term "morning sickness" is misleading and a lie.

Next month is Halloween and I for one can not wait! Mostly because they claim the nausea goes away in the second trimester and I'll actually be active again! I hope you'll all join me!

Hello, all my favorite people! Welcome to another edition of all the Puff news that is fit to print I mean, it is Term XXX. We need to keep some ~secrets to ourselves.

Let’s start with the most exciting news first. We have gone up one in numbers, thanks to our brand new bb!badger Maria/maferpotter219! You can learn all about her over here, so come say hi if you haven’t!

In other news, there is still plenty of time to get dirty. In the in-house. What were you guys thinking? No, but really, there is still time. Ask questions, give answers, learn your fellow Puffs’ dirty secrets. Or not-so-dirty. Up to you really. But you have until 11:59pm UTC today (Sept. 29) to decide, so don’t wait too long, or you might miss your moment.

Other things that you don’t want to miss? This double entendre-laden post and this let’s-talk-about-how-awesome-you-are one. Because who doesn’t want to do both of those things? Yup, that’s what I’m saying.

(Some other things you should do: Add your name to the spreadsheet, come to chat and check out Caitie’s easy activity roundup because the month ends tomorrow and what do we want to see when the month ends? (Hint: If you said, big numbers for Puff, you would be right!))

Now, let’s get to my favorite part of our time together: Puff shout-outs!
• Congrats to Emma/bergeronprocess for being our very first Star Sorter for Term XXX! (And this term, Star Sorters come with fancy sigtags!)
• Congrats to Avi/flyingharmony for coming in second in Sorted Challenge 2: Friends-Only Banners with her very lovely banner of Lucius and Narcissa.
• Congrats to Sara/arctic_comet for placing third in Art Club's What Path Will You Choose? with her gorgeous set of icons.
• And congratulations to ALL of us for kicking ass at clubs and winning the Art Club Hanging Art, DADA Guess Who, Smarmy Free to be Me, YDE 7 Deadly Sins Lust, History of Magic Canon Curriculum, Restricted Section Fancasting, Art Club What Path Will You Choose, Astronomy Coloring Book Pages and the Potions Club Chemistry Cram Session. And if that wasn’t enough, we also kicked some ass in the Animagus ABCs. So good job bbs!

And that is all for this issue! Until next time, remember to dig deep, Puffies, and don’t let up! <3333
