"Dear Headmaster,

How can we be sure there are no more properties to be discovered in dragon's blood? Do you think it would make a good hair mask if mixed with cocoa butter? My sister said so, but I think she's just jealous of my hair and wants to see it burn. What do you think?

Thank you in advance for your answer,

Concerned."


Dear Concerned,

You bring up very fine points indeed, and I would encourage you to see if you can discover more properties to dragon's blood. That said, I would also caution you to be careful about how you would go about these experiments. Dragon's blood can be a very volatile substance; you certainly wouldn't want to dump it onto your hair immediately.

Good luck,
Albus


"Dear Dumbledore,

It has come to my attention that every time I sneak out to meet my boyfriend down the second corridor, there is a specific witch in the painting near the alcove. We have gone to another floor, and the witch is there as well.

Is she following us?

Suspiciously yours"


Dear Suspiciously yours,

Perhaps it might be wise not to try and sneak out to meet your boyfriend. You are never entirely alone in this school, after all, and we do have rules about breaking curfew for a reason.

Yours,
Albus


"Dear Dumbledore,

Why has no one fixed the staircase that eats people?

Yours

Sick-Of-Getting-Stuck-Lion "


Dear Sick-Of-Getting-Stuck-Lion,

That staircase is guarding a Very Important Artefact — what are you doing in that forbidden wing, anyway?

Yours,
Albus

Write to Dumbles
You can write to your headmaster here; Dumbledore will try to respond to all letters, but there may be some delay before he gets to yours. All letters dealt with in strictest confidence.

By monkiainen

Hello all fanfic readers! It’s the time again to have a look at what hh_sugarquill has to offer us.

Looking for something to read, but have no idea where to start from? Here are some recommendations on where to start. If you are in the mood for something angsty, Avi/flyingharmony gives us Such Terrible Silence, a beautifully written but yet sad fic featuring Narcissa. If you are looking for something happier, then Crystal/bluemermaid has given us The Name Of Black, which features another Black sister, Andromeda. Last but not least, if Neville/Ginny is your favourite pairing, you should read A Day In Bed by Whitney/csichick_2.

The first Saturday Special for October was simply themed “run”. Yaakov/j_okay interpreted the prompt with Fear And Error, a Ravenclaw-centric fic with Padma as the main character. Johanna/monkiainen gave us With Every Single Beat Of My Heart, which follows the course of Fleur and Bill’s relationship over the years. One prompt, two completely different stories.

Writer’s Block #2 is up! The theme for the current Writer’s Block is to write a fic using the theme of "perserverance". You still have a few days to participate, as the deadline is on 15 October 2014, 11:59pm UTC. Submit your fic here.

October prompts are also up! The theme of this month is one-word-prompts – I’m looking forward to how people will interpret these prompts. Go and see the October prompts for yourself — maybe one of them catches your attention.

Don’t forget to leave feedback to all the wonderful writers of hh_sugarquill — without them we wouldn’t have so many wonderful fics to read :) Till the next issue, dear readers!



hh_sugarquill sortedchallenge hogwartsicons
By evening12

Let's not waste any time and get right down to business, shall we? Challenge 3 was all about the bigger graphics over at sortedchallenge. First place went to Meg/watchpoint of Ravenclaw with a great Nymphadora graphic.



Slytherins came in both second and third place with Tiffany/growling and Jenna/jennashaped respectively. Caitie/caitieness of Hufflepuff won the special category of "best use of texture". Stop by to check out all of the winning graphics. With Challenge 4, the mods simplified with an icon base challenge. It was almost a Slytherin sweep! Ravenclaw's Bei/sapphoatsunset of Ravenclaw, who came in first place, is the only non-Slytherin. Tiffany/growling came in second place again, while Olivia/ohcaptain came in third place. Jenna/jennashaped won the special award.



To those past winners of Challenge 1, 2 and 3 who requested banners, come on over and pick them up.

Our lovely mod at hogwartsicons created some shinies for the highest earners from each house! If you want to talk graphics, stop by Social Saturday! Edition #002. And now let there be graphics! For those of you in the market for new friends, stop by Social Saturday - Edition #003!.

Are you in the mood for some music that just screams Pansy Parkinson? If the is answer yes, Evy/slumber of Ravenclaw has got the thing for you.


Leave Evy a comment over here.


Erin/erinm_4600 of Gryffindor took on the 20in20 Challenge with icons from HP and the Goblet of Fire. Here are a few of my favourite icons.


Stop by Erin's post to see all of the icons.


Stephanie/lotrangel17 of Hufflepuff shared some great banners that have a very crisp feeling to them.

We haven't had any new art posted since the last edition, so I took a spin in the archives to highlight some great pieces.

Gryffindor's Beth/prongsy shared this great digital work featuring James and Sirius.


Come on over here to leave Beth some comments.


Fellow Gryffindor Rene/isaac_of_nine created this dreamy drawing of Luna using lovely shades of pinks and blues.


Come on over here to leave Rene some comments.


That's it for this edition of the Daily Prophet. If you want more art and graphics, do stop by our lovely communities. Keep on being creative and making beautiful work, and you might find yourself in the spotlight in our next edition!



hh_clubs
By lotrangel17

To start our Clubs edition, let's give a shout-out to Crystal/bluemermaid of Hufflepuff as the new Clubs co-mod. Welcome to the nonstop place to be for Clubs!



With the end of September and into October, we had knuts deposited, so don't forget to make sure you have all your Clubs bonus items. Those bonus points really can add up for your house! You can find out here at the Bonus Items Registry if you are missing anything.

Also, when knuts were deposited, so were the Owls for last term. You can check out your Owned items to see how many you earned for Clubs activities last term. Not sure what these little gems are? Read about them here. Sadly I had none :( Bad Puff BUT I did happen to check out Beth/prongsy of Gryffindor, who was the most active for Term 29 and she had all 24 Owls! Way to go!



The month of September finished up with some great results. The History of Magic activity Photobomb gave us some funny pictures to look at like these:

Snape in a barn by Meg/watchpoint of Ravenclaw

and
Colin captures a moment by Chelsea/interchanges of Ravenclaw


Also in the way of creative results were the Gregory the Smarmy Society's Minor Appreciation. We saw some really awesome graphics like these:

Oliver Wood by Tiffany/growling of Slytherin

and
Fleur and Bill by Bei/sapphoatsunset of Ravenclaw


There are still tons of activities open for the month of October. If you like discussions, then check out Astronomy Club's What Will We Do When the Sun Dies?, or if you like research and writing, then the Healers Association Fall Mid-Terms is the activity to check out. If puzzles are your thing, we have two crosswords going on right now: one at The Restricted Section and one at the Astronomy Club. If you are looking for the super easy, peasy activity, then go to The Art Club Lucky Gallery activity.

With the close results of September, there are always lots of points available for you to earn at hh_clubs. You can see the open Clubs activities in a nice neat calendar or just click on the current tag.

So if you find yourself bored with nothing to do:



there is never a lack of things to do at hh_clubs!




hih_animagus
By valerie_jackson

Things are off to a grand start for Animagus this term, with some great things to check out!

Results are in for September's second activity, Find the Animagi, with placings as follows:

1st Place: Evy/slumber of Ravenclaw completed the puzzle in 47 minutes
2nd Place: Nikki/nikkikitty of Hufflepuff completed the puzzle in 1 hour and 15 minutes
3rd Place: William/mmailliw of Slytherin completed the puzzle in 1 hour and 20 minutes

Don't forget to sign up for a partner and complete October's first activity: Wanted Animagus. It's a super cute idea that only requires a hand drawn picture of your dear animagus friend. This one will end on Oct 17, 11:59pm UTC so you have a little bit of time. Voting on the October batch is up here. You have until 11p UTC on October 27.

There is now a trophy case for Animagus! There are some adorable badges to be had for voting and any of the other activities. Check out the Trophy Cabinet over here.

It's not required to have your own animagus form to participate in any of the Wilderness activities, but there are always bonus points to be had, and who doesn't want a spirit animal? If you haven't participated in a while, you might want to check HERE to make sure that you are still registered, and if you have been taken off the list but want to reclaim your animal, just go HERE. If you no longer feel connected to your form (and have had it for six months or more) then you can submit an essay stating why that is to be able to apply for a new form; once you're approved you can submit a new application anytime.

Speaking of applications, anyone interested in becoming a registered animagus need only fill out their application (you have to have The Standard Book of Spells Vol 1-3 from Flourish and Blotts, too, but that's easy stuff).

Until next time.



hogsmeadewkends
By csichick_2

Hogsmeade is less than a week away!

The most helpful post for the weekend will be the Schedule and Banner Info. There are three banners to be earned this weekend: the Regular Banner made by Meg/watchpoint, the Awesome Banner made by Crystal/bluemermaid, and the Superawesome Banner made by Tiffany/growling. There are also a number of badges to be earned — including a mystery badge — that can be turned into a sigtag when the weekend is over.

Speaking of sigtags, don’t forget about Flourish at Hogsmeade. Information specific to the weekend can be found here. All four houses have spots open, but Slytherin especially could use some sign-ups. You can find that information here. If you’re not sure if your tags fit the theme, you can ask at the Tag Check Post.

I hope everyone’s looking forward to What Happens at Hogsmeade.



Tweetie Birds
Apparently several Muggle-borns have been missing some creature comforts of the Muggle world, which involves some sort of communication called ""tweeting."" So they attempted to charm actual birds to send messages...except now they just croak like frogs. Way to go, Muggles.

Professors Caught on Film!
Rumors have been swirling about two professors who have been getting hot and heavy behind closed doors. Well it's no longer a rumor nor behind closed doors as a young photographer snapped a photo to the two canoodling in the halls. They have been avoiding everyone's eyes -- and each other -- since then!

Weasley Patriarch Found Naked
One Arthur Weasley has allegedly been seen bathing, in the nude, in a lake with real ducks, attempting to see if they are like rubber ducks.

Got gossip? Tell us here!

By nearlyconscious




By sapphoatsunset

I suppose I ought to check in on whether or not people are surviving the continual burn of my column or not. Are you having emotions? My Aquarian side finds that very intriguing *wink*



Really though, ILU all! And I’d like to warn for turbulence ahead. We’re going to blame our planets. Those pesky orbs of influence!



Aries
Are you feeling fiestier than normal? Do you want to kick annoying children? Do you want to battle a bear? Don’t blame PMS or lack of sleep. No, blame your planet! Mars, a red, glowering psychopath of a planet with two henchmen moons called Deimos and Phobos (fear and loathing). Tiny but menacing, this is the driving force behind your star sign. Is it surprising that Mars was named for the god of war and that you tend to the aggressive on the dark side just like Mars? Doesn’t surprise me at all!
Taurus
Do you think you’re acting like a selfish Wall Street tool? Maybe you should blame your planet. Venus, a politically correct version of the greedy and romantic Aphrodite, is definitely named after a goddess that is renowned for going after what she wants with a single-minded determination that is unmatched. So those widows and orphans you kicked out of that warehouse to build a new upscale loft community? They were just collateral damage, and you succeeded on your quest to have it all.
Gemini
Have you double-crossed or triple-crossed anyone lately? Been as variable as the wind and as charming as a cyclone? I’m sure it’s nothing but the fault of your planet, Mercury, who was named after the Roman incarnation of Hermes, best known as messenger to the gods and god of bankers, gypsies, tramps and thieves. And unlike many other planets, Mercury likes to follow its whims, orbiting at different speeds depending on — well who really knows what it depends on? I certainly don’t!
Cancer
When you’re not bitching at someone for upsetting you in ways you’d prefer not to go into, you’re baking them cookies, and when you’re not baking them cookies, you’re remembering their lack of birthday presents to you. Is that your fault? Nope! It’s your planet’s fault. And your planet, well it’s not even a ‘planet’ really at all. Guided by the moody moon, is it any wonder that your emotions are quicksilver? The moon constantly changes, and well, so do you. *grin*
Leo
Have you been taking the Supreme Ruler thing too far lately? Before you get called Joseph Stalin, best blame your planet that is also not really a planet. Of course, the Sun, being that body that everyone else orbits around...well is there any better fit? I’m sure your bouts of temper have nothing to do with the bright, fiery, stationary orb that lords over the entire Milky Way. Nothing at’all.
Virgo
Have you recatalogued a Friends DVD collection recently? I’m sure you’re not being anal retentive. It’s got to be the fault of your planet: Mercury! Yes, it is an outrage to have to share this planet with Gemini, but unlike some signs, you don’t make a fuss. No, you leverage that hardworking mojo to sycophant your way to greatness and bask in the glory.
Libra
With besotted admirers galore, and a mind that you’ve changed at least as many times as you’ve changed your shoes today (was that 15 or 51 times?), you’re certain it can’t be all because of aww-shucks-little-ol’ you. And you’re right! Sharing the planet Venus with Taurus, for you, this lovestruck planet has power-sloth moocher down pat, and so do you. When it takes 243 Earth days for Venus to complete one full axis twirl, you know there’s not a planet that could fit your lazy, and materialistic, whims better.
Scorpio
Oh Scorpio, you sexy sadist. You better be glad that scientists discovered Pluto — and yes, it is still a planet, dammit! — because before that, you shared a bit of Mars. After all, until there were telescopes, people were only aware of 5 planets so Mars was the best (if obvious) choice. But Pluto, there’s the perfect fit in a mysterious loner, a dense space iceberg that orbits with menacing slowness and sometimes can’t be seen at all. And of course, let’s take your Roman god, Pluto, (upgraded version of Hades) into consideration. Are you feeling like an Underworld ruler today? That’s probably your Pluto acting up again!
Sagittarius
In touch with your inner class clown lately? Is everyone pissed off at you and you don’t know why? Well, let me give you a bit of 411 on your planet. Jupiter, once shared with Pisces as well, is the fifth planet from the sun, and it tends to roll around its orbit like a hippo in a hamster ball — that is to say: exceedingly fast. And that’s really your approach to life too, isn’t it?
Capricorn
Did I just see that your petition to ban workplace smiling has gained five more signatures? Did you get those through intimidation? Either way, you can count this a fabulous day, and give a metaphorical pat on the back to your planet, Saturn. You used to have to share this planet with Aquarius, but they left unexpectedly and gave no forwarding address. Good riddance on their lack of respect! Saturn was originally named after a pre-Roman god of agriculture, but soon became associated with Cronos, the father of the Olympic gods who castrated his own father to get his hands on power faster. Sound familiar? *wink*
Aquarius
After you left Saturn behind, you zeroed in on quirky Uranus. Even its name is a play on words (actually it’s not but everyone with third-grade humor thinks of that first.) What’s really odd about Uranus (the planet, gais!) is that it’s tilted to a perfect 98 degrees, which means it spends time sunning one pole before sunning the other. To top it off, it has dark mysterious rings that never show up on camera, and named after the Greek God Oeranos who had not a single temple to his name. Luckily you don’t enjoy deference anyways!
Pisces
Jupiter was never a good fit for you as it was far too jolly, but nebulous, unfocused, wet Neptune is the perfect replacement. And, of course, you know it’s a troublemaker. It was only discovered because it kept affecting Uranus’s orbit and leading it astray. Its unpredictable moon count, and half-hearted ring system, are a perfect fit for your love of murky underlayers and the ability to bring people up just to watch them fall back down.

hh_flourish
By la_loony

Hello Flourish visitors,

It has been business as usual at Flourish and not many things are in need of an announcement, except these:
+ If you want to get extra points, make sure you get them for your animal-themed or generally SQ-sized tags.
+ There is room for more shops. Slytherin, Gryffindor and Ravenclaw have 3 spots open each and Hufflepuff 2, so if you are interested in having a shop, just apply over here.

And now a word from our shopkeepers ... about their fellow shopkeepers.


1. What do you think is the story behind the shop name?
Mary/crusading_soul: Based on the first image in the shop, likely something to do with Lucius Malfoy plus a spell from the HP-verse.
Alexandra/coolceruleanblu: I mean a — the name is awesome. Accio I think is my most favorite spell because I'm lazy as all f&%$, to be honest. And b — I think, I'm pretty sure it's just because Malfoy is such a beloved character to some and they just really want them some Malfoy to come at their beck and call :)

2. Which three tags in the shop are your favorite?
Mary/crusading_soul: This is adorable.

SO pretty!

Gorgeous London tag!

Alexandra/coolceruleanblu:

I love the colors in this, they are fantastic, and there are so many, it's so beautiful and striking.

The colors in that are so soft and warm and inviting.

I'm a huge fan of this tag. Just so pretty and cute.

3. What kind of tags would you love to see from the shopkeeper?
Mary/crusading_soul: More fandoms and pixel tags!
Alexandra/coolceruleanblu: There are so many great different catagories already! But I'd love to see maybe some potions related tags :) I think those would be lovely!

What is the story behind your shop's name?
Krystal/autumn_mist: Well, mine is quite simple! I would totally leave my husband for Lucius Malfoy. I love the Malfoy family and I totally lose my keys all of the time and occasionally need to summon things. So I figured I would combine my favorite spell, Accio, with my favorite family, Malfoy.

(or to be completely cracky... I hope that if I Accio Malfoy enough, Lucius will come zooming into my bedroom)!


1. What do you think is the story behind the shop name?
Mary/crusading_soul: The shop owner likely enjoys knitting and wanted to spice that up with a HP-verse term. :)
Krystal/autumn_mist: They like to knit and would appreciate a knitted cauldron to hang on their fridge to keep important recipes or phone numbers? I have no idea!

2. Which three tags in the shop are your favorite?
Mary/crusading_soul: Loving the font on this one!

This is ridiculously cute.

Gorgeous color combo!

Krystal/autumn_mist:

Even though it's not a snake, it still looks like it is "up to something" and would fit right into the house!

The entire quotes gallery, no seriously. They are all so completely different and unique to that quote that I can't pick just one. Ok FINE if I have to pick one I would go with this:

I love that quote and the style showcases everything perfectly.

THE CUTENESS!!!

3. What kind of tags would you love to see from the shopkeeper?
Mary/crusading_soul: Your house pride line is ridiculously cute; I'd love to see more! Also, more seasonal stuff would be cool!
Krystal/autumn_mist: Custom orders. Honestly...there is nothing that I can think of that this shopkeeper wouldn't do an awesome job with!

What is the story behind your shop's name?
Alexandra/coolceruleanblu: The story behind my name is really awful. Haha. SO I love to knit. A lot. Like on my commute every day on the subway, or at home, or at work when I'm bored, and I have five big bins of yarn and my sister put an embargo on Michaels for me, cause I can't buy anymore yarn. And it was the name of a shop I had thrown to a friend. They were opening a real life shop of goodies on Etsy, and were trying to think of a name. They wanted something to do with knitting and then also witchy, so I was like what about the Knitted Cauldron? While they liked it, they didn't go with it, and I liked it enough I kept it in the back of my head. So when it came time to open a shop of my own, I really had only one choice. Although I did consider other options (Gobbledygook being one). But I ended on The Knitted Cauldron. It was cutesy, and that's the kind of tags I like to make :) I also like vintage-looking things, so was trying to go for that in my shop name.


1. What do you think is the story behind the shop name?
Alexandra/coolceruleanblu: I think the story behind this shop's name is that it's a resurgent catalog, as taken from the point in Chamber of Secrets, where the Phoenix song lifts Harry's spirits up when you think all is lost.
Krystal/autumn_mist: The Phoenix song is a potent thing. Especially when Dumbledore died and the whole world cried.

2. Which three tags in the shop are your favorite?
Alexandra/coolceruleanblu: OMG there are so many lovely tags to choose from. First, I love the layout, and love how it looks. Even though I can't take it, I love it with this one:

Absolutely gorgeous.
I really love the snitch cake pop.

Also I LOVE the wand one and love that it's totally customized. Such a great idea!

Krystal/autumn_mist: Her entire House Pride section. I can't pick just one! Each house is represented, the different options are incredible. I especially love how she has the "mascots" as well as the "houses" represented.

Her custom wand option is amazing! I love the fact that I can either create my own wand/meanings, or I can give her the ones I got in my stamping.

The heart shape was one thing, it was so unique and awesome. But the way it was laid out with cookie monster was just awesome!

3. What kind of tags would you love to see from the shopkeeper?
Alexandra/coolceruleanblu: I'd love to see all sorts of tags! Her work is absolutely gorgeous. I would love to see more of the other house tags, but maybe some more animal tags, and maybe some ocean tags? Her boat ones she's done for the Vikings and the Pirates are pretty top notch.
Krystal/autumn_mist: Customs again, but honestly, she has a way of finding and creating beautiful tags that everyone loves. I don't think she will have a problem coming up with new things!

What is the story behind your shop's name?
Mary/crusading_soul: The story behind my shop's name is that I wanted to name it after a magical creature. I was rewatching CoS at the time and was like, hey, Fawkes is cool — let's name this something after phoenixes. I added Song of the in there because it sounded nice and only saying Phoenixes just sounded a little too short for me.

~~~

This has been the Flourish Column. Stay tuned next for the sound of shopkeepers whispering ideas for new tags.

Here you can see how they came to reality in the past.

Have fun at Flourish HiH, have fun!
