**Blows until she turns blue...**

I feel dizzy...


Finn BV - Apr 30, 2006 5:24 pm (#1202 of 2575)


erm, someone else will have to blow it out!!


Good Evans - Apr 30, 2006 5:54 pm (#1203 of 2575)

phewooooooooooooooooooooooo * gasp* is it out yet????


azi - Apr 30, 2006 6:05 pm (#1204 of 2575)

**Continues to huff and puff (HUFFLEPUFF hehe...ok I stole that from a cartoon...)**

**gasps for air** Is it out yet?


azi - Apr 30, 2006 10:07 pm (#1206 of 2575)'s just smoking now! The Olympic flame is out! Well done Tazzy, on your amazing blowing-out-flame abilities!

Shall we have an Olympic-Flame-Blowing-Out celebration party? I provide the snazzy hats! **Sticks hat on head at a cool angle**


Tazzygirl - May 1, 2006 12:21 am (#1207 of 2575)

It's out?! Whooo-hooooo!!! And another party!! Awesome! **Takes a snazzy hat from Azi** Thanks! I have brownies, if anyone wants some!


Viola Intonada - May 1, 2006 1:46 am (#1208 of 2575)

Paaarrrtay! Wahoo! Do you have any Snape Beverages for us Gina? We've been out for quite some time now.


pyrogrl - May 1, 2006 1:54 am (#1209 of 2575)

**torch relights**

Heheheh...I mean, oh dear, it's almost as if someone is controlling the fire!! **hides evil grin**


Good Evans - May 1, 2006 5:09 pm (#1210 of 2575)

*turns gas off the olympic flame* ha ha - that'll teach them!!! *places the flame holder in a bucket of sand just to be on the safe side.*

Paaaarrrtttyyyyyy, - takes hat from Azi and wears at a jaunty angle , spies jelly and does running dive in to it - yum yum!! phtah - whats that, oh I'm eating my hat - ha ha!


azi - May 1, 2006 9:17 pm (#1211 of 2575)

WOOHOO! **Eats jelly and brownies!** YUMMY!

Hehe, eating hat! By the way...they're made of paper rice!


Liz Mann - May 1, 2006 11:06 pm (#1212 of 2575)

I love parties! Especially St Mungo's parties! Break out the Bertie Botts Beans and Butterbeer! And I found this Piñata. I think Fred and George made it which makes it all the more exciting because we never know what may happen when it explodes! Wicked!


dizzy lizzy - May 2, 2006 1:07 am (#1213 of 2575)

Ooh partyyyyy!!!!!


Finn BV - May 2, 2006 1:43 am (#1214 of 2575)

yay, somebody finally blew out the torch!!

Definitely a reason to party!!


Viola Intonada - May 2, 2006 2:08 am (#1215 of 2575)

Uh, Liz, are you sure that is a pinata? I think it's moving and making noise.....


Tazzygirl - May 2, 2006 6:25 am (#1216 of 2575)

**Thinks to self** hmmmm... That pinata looks like Rinky... It's Rinky!! **Runs over, scoops Rinky up and puts him in a safe spot** Phew! That was close!

I think the Pinata is over there, by that tree...


azi - May 2, 2006 3:33 pm (#1217 of 2575)

Pinata, Pinata!

I spent all day measuring trees. Over 100 trees to be precise. Would have been more, if I hadn't been trying to control the immature males that felt a need to use the clinometer as a gun to shoot each other with.

**goes to measure tree next to pinata**


Viola Intonada - May 2, 2006 5:40 pm (#1218 of 2575)

Whew! That was a close call for Rinky. I want a turn at the pinata, but I don't want to be first.


Emily - May 2, 2006 7:50 pm (#1219 of 2575)

I'll go first! Yay pinata!

*swings hard and falls hard, of course*


Liz Mann - May 2, 2006 8:32 pm (#1220 of 2575)
Edited by May 2, 2006 8:33 pm

Oops! Sorry Tazzy, I didn't realise it was Rinky.

Viola - there's a message for you on the Quidditch thread (post 635).


Tazzygirl - May 3, 2006 1:19 am (#1221 of 2575)

That's quite all right, Liz. My pet turtle, Killer, was eaten by Finn , so beating up Rinky is somewhat better- I was able to save him this time...I seem to have bad luck with animals at St. Mungo's...


Viola Intonada - May 3, 2006 2:42 am (#1222 of 2575)

Thanks, Liz, I'll check it out.


Phelim Mcintyre - Mar 30, 2006 5:02 pm (#1223 of 2575)

*speaking with motuh ful of crisps* What's that crackling noise from the sand bucket? Why has the torch flame started and gone from green to blue? Ohhhhh yes. Quick everyone, put your name in and we'll have a St Mungo's Tri-Wizard Tornament, but with more than three players. Minimum age and maximum age related to ability with the internet.

*Steps over age line and .... BANG* hey my spelling isn't that bad.

azi - May 3, 2006 6:51 pm (#1225 of 2575)

Sucessfully skips over the age line and drops paper into...ARGH, it's blown away! **Runs after paper**


Tazzygirl - May 3, 2006 7:58 pm (#1226 of 2575)

**Quickly writes name on piece of paper, Jumps over age line, and successfully drops the paper in only...** I now have a very sticky arm of marshmallows. Thanks Elfcat! **Walks off having a snack of toasted marshmallows**

Viola Intonada - May 3, 2006 8:30 pm (#1228 of 2575)

Oooo, toasted marshmallows. I just happen to have some graham crackers and chocolate bars right here. But I don't have any paper to write my name on. I'll try writing it on a marshmallow and throw that in instead.

*Writes name, very sloppily, on marshmallow and throws it into the flame*


azi - May 3, 2006 8:30 pm (#1229 of 2575)

**Runs back with ragged piece of paper that has been savaged by the Whomping Willow**

**Tries to put paper in torch, but falls over age line**

**screws the paper up and throws it in, in disgust**


Emily - May 3, 2006 8:51 pm (#1230 of 2575)

Internet abilities? I do some write html. . .

**Crosses fingers and steps over Age Line successfully**

Yay! But wait . . . I don't have any paper . . . how about this (unused ) tissue? **Writes name on tissue with a high-lighter**

Hey, it works. Say, just how dangerous will this be?


Liz Mann - May 4, 2006 12:23 am (#1231 of 2575)

Who cares? We're insane and we're living in a hospital anyway.

**Pulls of beard and picks up paper** Now lets try again.

**Steps over line, puts paper into fire. Waits for something nasty to happen.**

**Nothing** I did it **BANG**

*Whimper* Ouch that hurt. And shouldn't we make sure Lockhart isn't around. We may be insane but we're not stupid.


Liz Mann - May 4, 2006 10:27 am (#1234 of 2575)

Maybe the torch rejected you because this is a Harry Potter hospital and you can't spell Lockhart.


Phelim Mcintyre - May 4, 2006 12:36 pm (#1235 of 2575)

No - what ever hit me came after the torch accepted my paper, I think. Anyway I haven't come out in slug like tentacles or grown a beard so it must be okay. But seriously what do we do to prevent Lockhart getting at us?


dizzy lizzy - May 5, 2006 11:37 am (#1236 of 2575)

**Scratches name on smelly old bone and trots up to torch and drops bone in***


Elfcat - May 5, 2006 4:15 pm (#1237 of 2575)

**Carves name on toasting stick and rams it into the torch**

Paper, shmaper.


Gina R Snape - May 5, 2006 7:12 pm (#1238 of 2575)

Viola, for you I have a whole case of Snape drink.

Uh, guys. Why is there a giant marshmallow with arms and legs running around aflame and pointing at pinatas?


Emily - May 5, 2006 9:30 pm (#1239 of 2575)

A giant marshmallow with arms and legs? Uh oh. Who wants to call Fred and George. I mean, canary creams, ok. But marshmallow puffs? Way too dangerous around a goblet full of fire.


Liz Mann - May 6, 2006 12:37 pm (#1240 of 2575)

Oh, I don't know. If we roasted it over the torch of fire it would feed us for a long time.


Viola Intonada - May 7, 2006 2:51 am (#1241 of 2575)

Uh, has anyone seen Phelim? Or is Phelim the giant marshmallow running around waving its arms on fire?


Emily - May 7, 2006 2:07 pm (#1242 of 2575)

Umm . . . not recently. Uh oh.


Tazzygirl - May 8, 2006 12:33 am (#1243 of 2575)

**hastily wipes mouth off of toasted marshmallow**

Uh-Oh indeed. Oh wait. I got my marshmallow before Phelim disappeared. Phew. **continues to eat marshmallow**


Phelim Mcintyre - May 8, 2006 8:12 am (#1244 of 2575)

Don't worry I've been away raiding the Honeydukes factory for prizes. The winner of the tornament wins a billion gold galleons.

(Acually I've been away camping. Scout leader training. And no we didn't have roasted marshmallows. I left my pack here. But we did have chicken cooked in a dustbin. Not as bad as it sounds.)

So who is the marshmallow? Who else was missing? And Gina, can we be sure you only brought nettle wine?


Phelim Mcintyre - May 11, 2006 11:54 am (#1245 of 2575)

Okay where is everyone? I've just aparated back from the Quidditch Pitch as no one is there and silence. Let me guess you are all snoozing after partying too much. WAKE UP, the multi(tri)wizard tournament is about to start.


azi - May 11, 2006 12:44 pm (#1246 of 2575)

**wakes from snooze** Eh, what, where am I? Ouch I ate too much head hurts...

*Dizzily gets to feet ready for first task**


Phelim Mcintyre - May 11, 2006 1:41 pm (#1247 of 2575)

Ummm, what is the first task?


azi - May 11, 2006 2:26 pm (#1248 of 2575)
Edited by May 11, 2006 2:26 pm

Hmmm, I have no idea...lets make something!

**quickly makes an assault course which includes fire hoops, nets, slides, swings and also turns pond into gloopy mud thing**

Well, I made something. Now the question is what to do with it...


Finn BV - May 11, 2006 4:45 pm (#1249 of 2575)

Aha! I see I have been selected to represent the ward that is my bed. Wow, I'm surprised nobody else won from my ward…

Probably because I'm the only one who lives in my bed…

welllll, I'm ready to begin. anyone else?


Emily - May 11, 2006 8:30 pm (#1250 of 2575)

Haha, I'll be representing the I Really Should Be Studying But Would Rather Be Online, and Specifically Doing Something HP-Related Ward. (IRSBSBWRBOSDSHPR Ward) Then again, I'm the only one here, probably because the name is so hard . . . Everybody else, come on!

Gina R Snape - May 11, 2006 8:30 pm (#1251 of 2575)

Phelim, I brought plenty of Snape fruit punch.

Don't look now. I think that marshmallow guy just jumped into a giant bowl of jello to douse the flames. Now the jello is starting to, um, move out of the bowl.


azi - May 12, 2006 9:44 am (#1252 of 2575)

Moving jello? ARGH! **runs away**


Liz Mann - May 12, 2006 7:43 pm (#1253 of 2575)

Emily, I'll totally join you in that ward! I'm meant to be doing work for University right now.


Emily - May 12, 2006 8:52 pm (#1254 of 2575)

Welcome, Liz, company is always appreciated. However, I must forbid you to try to work for the sake of my insanity, just a warning.

Where is there moving jello? How fortunate that I recently purchased moving-jello-nets! It's like Gred and Forge knew I would need them . . . wait. . .


Finn BV - May 12, 2006 10:14 pm (#1255 of 2575)

Moving… green… jello??? Goodness gracious, get thee out of the building!


Tazzygirl - May 12, 2006 11:19 pm (#1256 of 2575)

Quick! Call Gred and Forge!!

**Grabs Rinky and heads up to ward** I would have joined Emily and Liz in the IRSBSBWRBOSDSHPR Ward, but I am on my second day of summer. Whoo-hoo!


Viola Intonada - May 13, 2006 2:43 am (#1257 of 2575)



Liz Mann - May 13, 2006 12:19 pm (#1258 of 2575)

Lucky you, Tazzy.

Get me away from that jello! *screams and runs*


Phelim Mcintyre - May 13, 2006 1:06 pm (#1259 of 2575)

Could this be the first task? Wands at the ready everyone. "Solidify!".

Um, help. It didn't work. Ah, *frantically looking round for suck . . . I mean. . . volunteers* Just clear this up will you. *runs off - screaming*


Finn BV - May 13, 2006 4:33 pm (#1260 of 2575)

Ummmm… Alohomora!! That should do it! Wait, no, that's for locks…

Stupefy!! Sonorous! Wingardium Leviosa! Tarantellegra! Waddiwasi!!! Um…… where are the other competitors when you need them?


Emily - May 13, 2006 5:17 pm (#1261 of 2575)

Ooh! A task! Umm... How about... Comedo! Hmm, so it's not real. Absumo! Ok, I'm having fun with Latin instead of magic. So what? Accio spoons! Who else wants to risk it?


azi - May 13, 2006 5:35 pm (#1262 of 2575)

**gets vaccum cleaner** This should work! Oooo, some of the jelly's getting sucked up...eeek my hand!



Tazzygirl - May 13, 2006 9:26 pm (#1263 of 2575)
Edited by May 13, 2006 10:44 pm

Are you sure you want to do Tarantellegra, Finn?

AGUAMENTI!!! (Maybe if we try to dilute it...)

EDIT: It just hit me that it is Aguamenti and not Accio Water...(shame on me for not saying it in the first place!) Thanks Azi! I was washing the dishes just now and thought of it, came back to change my post, and wala!! you had said it!!


azi - May 13, 2006 9:32 pm (#1264 of 2575)

**Extracts hand from vacuum**

How about Aguamenti? Is that the right spell?


Viola Intonada - May 15, 2006 2:35 pm (#1265 of 2575)

*Hides in a closet with her butterflies*


Phelim Mcintyre - May 15, 2006 2:47 pm (#1266 of 2575)

Could Scorgify work?

Viola - about the Prophet article, it has a quote inside from a certain D Umbridge and is written by a Ms R Skeeter. I think that says it all. Don't hide. We still need you as referee/seeker. Viola, Viola. Oh no, it was the vanishing cabinet not a closet. *shouts* VIOLA!!!!!!


Viola Intonada - May 15, 2006 2:54 pm (#1267 of 2575)

Help! Where am I? I opened the door and I wasn't at St. Mungo's anymore! Help! Help! HELP!!!!!

*Flings alum powder at the Jell-o to dry it out.*

Okay, this is WAY out of context but back in the day, following a discussion with A-is-for-Amy, I started a poem that's more of less about St. M's and some of the inmates. Some of these people don't hang out here anymore, and some of those who are here now didn't get in. I apologize to anyone who feels left out and I'll write you your own poem if you want one. So without further ado:

The New And Improved Alphabet

A is for Amy, who inspired this poem, B is for azi, who calls Yorkshire home.

C is for Carina, who brought KBR, D is for Dobbyiscool, who can hit bludgers far.

E is for Elfcat, who writes poetry (ish), F is for Finn, named for snack-food fish.

G is for Great Abby, playing bagpipes ‘till she’s hoarse, H is for Harry potter, spelled backward, of course.

I is for Istari, now too seldom seen, J is for Jell-O, far too often green.

K is for Kip Carter, the second in command, L is for Liz Mann, who comes from En-ga-land.

M is for Madam Poppy, the odd one out for rhymes.

N is for Newt, now known as Blast. O is for zero, least but not last.

P is for Pinky, our fav. Moderator, Q is for Quirrel, the dirty rotten traitor.

R is for Gina R. Snape, the refreshment donor, S is for Steve, our fab forum’s owner.

T is for Ticker, whose baby is sweet, U is for Urg, who likes to eat meat.

V is for Viola, who on music mused, W is for Pigwidgeon, because P is used.

X is for Dizzy Lizzie, for no special reason, Y is for Pyro, our seeker through the seasons.

Z is for Tazzy, who got here after I started.


pyrogrl - May 15, 2006 5:28 pm (#1269 of 2575)

YAY!! I'm up there!!!


Gina R Snape - May 15, 2006 5:57 pm (#1270 of 2575)

*squeals with delight at being included*

Say, did you guys throw that alum powder on the jello and the marshmallow man?


Viola Intonada - May 15, 2006 6:28 pm (#1271 of 2575)

Elfcat, I'm applauding your poem, but I still don't know where I am. Maybe if I step back into the closet and close the door, I will end up back at St. Mungo's.

*Walks into closet and closes the door, accompanied by butterflies, of course*


Finn BV - May 15, 2006 6:58 pm (#1272 of 2575)

What do they do at St. Mungo's if you die? Because I just died. With laughter.

Elfcat, an upgrade of your bed for you!


azi - May 15, 2006 10:44 pm (#1273 of 2575)
Edited by May 15, 2006 10:45 pm

Wow, that poem was amazing!

**joins in applause and charms flowers to fall from the sky**


Kip Carter - May 15, 2006 11:22 pm (#1274 of 2575)

Elfcat, both Steve and I are honored that you included us. Thanks!

P.S.: Remember both of us are permanent members of St. Mungo's under house arrest. There's some trumped-up charge of misusing funds. It seems that Lucius Malfoy thinks his credit card and bank accounts were used for unsavory events and personal benefits. That charge is close, but does not receive the gold ring.


Tazzygirl - May 16, 2006 8:11 am (#1275 of 2575)

**gives a standing ovation** Wow, Elfcat!! That was great!!! Bravo! Bravo!!


Viola Intonada - May 16, 2006 4:33 pm (#1276 of 2575)
Edited by May 16, 2006 4:35 pm

So what would be the definition of an "unsavory event" to Lucius Malfoy? I would come forward and help you clear your good name, Kip, but unfortunately my butterflies and I are on the run. The Daily Prophet has accused my butterflies of vampirish characteristics and the Department for the Control of Magical Creatures is looking for us.

*Still has no clue where she is, but is able to hear conversations at St. Mungo's*


Liz Mann - May 16, 2006 7:25 pm (#1277 of 2575)

I'll send a portkey into the vanishing cabinet and see if it reaches you, Viola.

Bravo, Elfcat!! Bravo

That poem's made me start wondering what everyone on here actually looks like. Some of the Lex members have met but I've never seen anyone. But then again, it might spoil it mightn't it?


Emily - May 16, 2006 9:03 pm (#1278 of 2575)

Yeah, I wonder what people look like too. As a result, I picture Viola as a viola, Liz, you're usually a dog, other people might be whatever there avatars are, or if I know someone by you're name you'll look like them. It can be confusing . . . yet another reason I'm here.

Very nice, Elfcat! The next Lockhart, with those writing abilities. Great, now I'm gonna picture you like Lockhart . . . oh, never mind.


Gina R Snape - May 17, 2006 2:15 am (#1279 of 2575)
Edited by May 17, 2006 2:16 am

Yeah, it was such a shame Lucius was imprisoned and his credit card accounts closed. They got Kip all mixed up in that conspiracy.


Tazzygirl - May 17, 2006 8:32 am (#1280 of 2575)
Edited by May 17, 2006 8:33 am

I seem to remember that... Didn't we get the swimming pool with the help of Lucius's card?


Phelim Mcintyre - May 17, 2006 12:00 pm (#1281 of 2575)

Come back Viola, we'll protect you. We'll just set the jello on the Ministry Officials.

If the portkey doesn't work just click your heals together three times and think of home. Ok, click your heals together three times and think of St Mungo's.


azi - May 17, 2006 12:39 pm (#1282 of 2575)

Oooo, can we make jello cannons? I think jello will make great ammunition!

**theres no place like St Mungo's, There's no place like St Mungo's...wait, why am I doing this???**

That'd be cool on a t-shirt!


Phelim Mcintyre - May 17, 2006 12:57 pm (#1283 of 2575)

Jello cannons? What a cooool idea. And bombs, and other weapons of mass distraction.

I thought we we're having a wizard tornament? Oh well, Viola and her butterflies need defending. Now where is the protective gear for handling the jello?


Liz Mann - May 17, 2006 3:52 pm (#1284 of 2575)
Edited by May 17, 2006 3:53 pm

If the portkey doesn't work just click your heels together three times and think of home. Ok, click your heels together three times and think of St Mungo's.

Same thing.

That'd be cool on a t-shirt!

I could make that if anyone was interested in buying it.


Elfcat - May 17, 2006 4:02 pm (#1285 of 2575)

*takes a bow* I reiterate, If anybody who wasn't in there wants a poem of their own, I'd be happy to write one.

I think a weapon that works like a flame thrower but with Jello would be quite effective. Or even flaming jello. (Ministry Officials, run for your lives)


Emily - May 17, 2006 11:08 pm (#1286 of 2575)

LOL, Elfcat, if you're making another poem, I'd like to be in it, if it's not too much trouble. Although for someone of your genius, it should be no trouble.

Jello Cannons! I wanna help with that project. Finally something useful to do with the stuff.


azi - May 18, 2006 10:58 am (#1287 of 2575)
Edited by May 18, 2006 10:59 am

Flaming jello! Wow!

So, anyone got anything to make cannons/jello throwers with? How do you think water pistols would work?


Phelim Mcintyre - May 19, 2006 8:51 am (#1288 of 2575)

Probably get gunked up.


azi - May 19, 2006 9:25 am (#1289 of 2575)

Ahh, shame! How about we make them bigger with an engorgement (?) charm, then they will fit jello?

Ooo, if we made a wall of jello, would the Ministry just bounce off it when they invade?

**goes to start wheelbarrowing jello**


Phelim Mcintyre - May 19, 2006 1:04 pm (#1290 of 2575)

Hey look, jello makes great cannon balls. All we need now is a cannon.

Something I've just noticed though. We used to have Draco as a captive, has he escaped? If not we know who to test the jello weapons on....... he he he!


Elfcat - May 19, 2006 3:19 pm (#1291 of 2575)

I think Pyro would shoot you for that one, Phelim.


Liz Mann - May 19, 2006 5:59 pm (#1292 of 2575)

With the jello cannon.


pyrogrl - May 19, 2006 7:12 pm (#1293 of 2575)

Did I hear someone threatening to hurt my little Death Eater? Well, I sure hope not. *evil maniacal grin*

What's this? He's managed to call for help!! And...oh my, it's Crabbe and Goyle!! Alright, these two are your testers. Draco, you and I must spend an entire day SHOPPING as your punishment. And you're buying.


azi - May 19, 2006 7:36 pm (#1294 of 2575)

**Starts to set Crabbe and Goyle up as targets**

Wait, we need a cannon! Anyone own one? Must be someone... **looks around**


Finn BV - May 19, 2006 9:04 pm (#1295 of 2575)

As a matter of fact, I just happen to have a canon here in my back pocket. Here you go.


azi - May 19, 2006 9:11 pm (#1296 of 2575)

Yey! Must be a big pocket, Finn! :

**sets cannon up in direction of Goyle**

Right, who wants to try this first?


Tazzygirl - May 20, 2006 1:21 am (#1297 of 2575)

Me!! **jumps up and down, hand high in the air**

Ok everyone! Here we go! **pulls the rope thingy that makes the canon fire** Darn! I missed! Who's next?


Viola Intonada - May 20, 2006 2:23 am (#1298 of 2575)

*Puts portkey lime green slippers on feet* There's no place like St. Mungo's. There's no place like St. Mungo's. There's no place like St. Mungo's. *Clicks heels together three times*

Hey, it worked I'm back! Yay, I know where I am!!! *Wipes a tear from her eye* I'm so touched by the out pouring of help from you guys. You're the best. *sniffle, sniffle*

How about if we empty the fire extinguishers and refill them with lime jello? Or maybe just add some powdered green jello to the contents of a fire extinguisher.

Oh, oh oh oh! I got it!

We can fill one of those "Miracle Grow" containers that you screw into your lawn hose with lime jello and connect it to the fire hose! We could make a catapult. Or instead of pouring burning oil on our enemies, we could pour jello. This is too exciting!

*runs to room to start drawing up plans*

We could make this into part of our tournament.


Finn BV - May 20, 2006 3:44 am (#1299 of 2575)

Viola! You're back! Three cheers!

My mom's an architect so of courrrrrrrrse I'm going to win. Pfft. **draws up his own plans**


Phelim Mcintyre - May 20, 2006 8:49 am (#1300 of 2575)

Wow! My advice to Viola worked. Welcome back!!!!!!

But why not practice on Draco? Though I must admit that with Crabbe and Goyle they will always eat their way out of any attack - but knowing what he jello does (he he he!).

*loads catapult* Hey Goyle *fires catapult* Hey he swallowed it in one go. I'm not sure that a good idea.

Viola Intonada - May 21, 2006 2:42 am (#1301 of 2575)

*Comes frantically running into the room* Hey, Everyone, I just had a horrible thought. What if the healers copy some of our ideas for using the lime jello as weapons and they use it against us?

I'm going back to my room and start working on some defenses for ourselves against our own weapons.


Finn BV - May 21, 2006 3:42 am (#1302 of 2575)

No! Let's kidnap the Healers!


pyrogrl - May 21, 2006 4:44 am (#1303 of 2575)

Why not practice on Draco?

Because that would make pyro veeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeery angry.


Liz Mann - May 21, 2006 12:36 pm (#1304 of 2575)
Edited by May 21, 2006 12:37 pm

Kidnap the Healers, Finn? We're insane, yes, but we're not evil. Besides, if the Ministry hears we've done that they'll think we're out of control and raid the hospital. From what the Daily Prophet says we've already been investigated under suspicions of creating weapons of mass destruction (luckily they only saw us playing with jello). We're just going to have to be very sneaky and not let them see the canon. We can do what the Hogwarts students did to hide their copies of The Quibbler from Umbridge - put spells on it so that it resembles something else when anyone but us looks at it.


azi - May 21, 2006 12:56 pm (#1305 of 2575)

**Goes round putting spells on everything suspicious**

My turn on the cannon, (which, of course, is no longer a cannon but a rather large Honking Daffodil)!

**Aims....FIRES...** Yey I hit Goyle! I loaded it with double quantity jello so he couldn't swallow it all.


Finn BV - May 21, 2006 3:19 pm (#1306 of 2575)

Very well Liz. I think somebody had hexed me to say something evil. What a lovely honkin daffodil there azi!


azi - May 21, 2006 3:37 pm (#1307 of 2575)

Thanks Finn! McGonagall taught me well...


Viola Intonada - May 22, 2006 1:30 am (#1308 of 2575)

Well, I finally finished it! It is a giant vat mounted on the roof just above the entrance. It holds about 400 gallons of jello. I've put a spell on it so that it looks like a really big planter with flowers. All you have to do is pull this lever right here. *Demonstrates by pulling the lever, therefore tipping over the vat and dumping its contents down on the entrance below*

Oops, I shouldn't have done that! *Resets vat, walks away whistling, trying to act innocent*


Phelim Mcintyre - May 22, 2006 12:09 pm (#1309 of 2575)

Crabbe, Goyle just clear this mess up. Or I will transfigure Draco into a ferret, and blame it on you. What, you want some equipment, here take these spoons.


Elfcat - May 22, 2006 9:08 pm (#1310 of 2575)

No, leave it there! That'll keep the reporters out for a while.


pyrogrl - May 23, 2006 2:47 am (#1311 of 2575)

Eep!! Ferret!Draco...oh wait, hah, nevermind *thinks randomly about a Ferret!Draco picture I saw one time...haha*


Phelim Mcintyre - May 23, 2006 11:25 am (#1312 of 2575)

Great idea Elfcat.


Viola Intonada - May 24, 2006 1:33 am (#1313 of 2575)

I hope no one was entering St. Mungo's when I tipped over the vat. But that would create a nice barrier for awhile, until they realize that they can apparate around it. Hmm....


Elfcat - May 25, 2006 4:28 pm (#1314 of 2575)

They Can?!?!?! Who's idea was that? Does anybody know how to set up an anti-apparation spell?


azi - May 25, 2006 4:49 pm (#1315 of 2575)

I don't know one...

**starts to load cannon for aiming at Ministry...should they arrive...looks around suspiciously**


Emily - May 25, 2006 8:10 pm (#1316 of 2575)

Well, not sure about the ward, but we could always sneak out the back and flood the whole place with jello . . . then they'd have to apparate right back out.


Finn BV - May 26, 2006 2:50 am (#1317 of 2575)

**is really lost**

So um, I think I fell into a closet or something, because I have no clue what's going on here. I think I'll go sit in my bed and gaze at the dustballs or something.


Tazzygirl - May 26, 2006 6:07 am (#1318 of 2575)

**Finds a clear spot on the battlements of St. Mungo's and proceeds to throw jello-filled balloons down on unsuspecting people (hoping that they are journalists from the Daily Prophet)**

What can I say? I'm boooooooooored.


Viola Intonada - May 26, 2006 4:32 pm (#1319 of 2575)

Ooo, that sounds like fun, Tazzy. *joins in throwing jello filled balloons down on people*

Score!!! I think I just nailed Umbridge. hehehe

Liz Mann - May 27, 2006 10:55 am (#1322 of 2575)

Aieeeee! You just hit me! I've just got back from Derbyshire and was completely unsuspecting.


Tazzygirl - May 27, 2006 10:40 pm (#1323 of 2575)

Ooooh. Sorry, Liz! My aim was a little off, I wanted the guy next to you. Tell me, is it Lockhart or Scrimgeour? I'm hoping it's Scrimgeour! I have a huge jello filled balloon here, and I really want to hit the correct person!


Viola Intonada - May 28, 2006 12:53 am (#1324 of 2575)

Derbyshire, isn't that where Mr. Darcy has an estate in "Pride and Prejudice"? I just finished reading it for the first time last week. Hope you had a great time!

Okay, I'm up for throwing balloons! Oh wait, that's not a balloon it's……… RINKY!!!!! HELP!!!!


Tazzygirl - May 28, 2006 5:08 am (#1327 of 2575)

RINKY!?!?! Anyone on the ground, please catch my bunny! Maybe Rinky has magical powers that I didn't know about? **crossing fingers**

First you eat Killer, my turtle- now you throw Rinky over the battlements. What am I gonna do with you, Finn?


Liz Mann - May 28, 2006 5:26 pm (#1328 of 2575)

Yes, it's Scrimgeour. Fire away Tazzy! *evil grin*

Viola - it is indeed where Mr Darcy lived! And I did have a great time.


Tazzygirl - May 28, 2006 8:52 pm (#1329 of 2575)

w00t!! **aims perfectly and catapults the balloon**

**hits Scrimgeour with a satisfying splat** :evil grin: Thanks, Liz!

Rinky is still falling, hmmmmm... Accio bedpan!!!

**jumps onto bedpan and plummets to the ground, catching Rinky two seconds before he lands on the ground.** You OK, Rinky? **proceeds to put him back in my ward, and locking the door so he can't get out again.** Back to lobbing balloons!


Finn BV - May 29, 2006 3:27 am (#1330 of 2575)

Tazzy, I recommend you (hint hint) buy me a pet to get even.

**throw balloons at no one in particular, but they say Ow and it feels good**


geauxtigers - May 29, 2006 4:03 am (#1331 of 2575)

Tazzy told about this so I'm committing myself to St. Mungos. I hear we are having a jello fight? Thats what it sounds like

** lobs one at random passerby and misses**


virginiaelizabeth - May 29, 2006 4:50 am (#1332 of 2575)

I think I need to be committed as well.

Doesn't sound much like a jello fight to me but what the heck!

*throws towards geauxtigers*

ooohhh SPLAT!! how does it feel?::


Tazzygirl - May 29, 2006 6:04 am (#1333 of 2575)
Edited by May 29, 2006 6:07 am

Hint taken, Finn. You have a choice between an orange pygmy puff named Arnie or a blue rabbit named Dinky (Rinky's brother). **starts thinking of stuff to do with Finn's new pet**

Welcome, geauxtigers and virginiaelizabeth! Glad you could make it. We are currently waging a war against the ministry, who seem to think we were fortifying the hospital (please see the Daily Prophet thread). Originally we were having our own Triwizard tournament, but things got a little out of hand with the marshmallows.

Oh! And please don't eat the jello. It's green, and full of stuff that will make you sane. We don't want that now, do we?


azi - May 29, 2006 9:31 am (#1334 of 2575)

Sane ain't good, Tazzy!

I want the pygmy puff! Arnie is such a cool name! I'd dye him green though...maybe the jello will work?

**throws jello at lime green hat guy once more** Ooooooo the fun!


Tazzygirl - May 29, 2006 9:40 am (#1335 of 2575)

You can have Arnie the pygmy puff if you want, Azi! I guess it would only be fair to give Dinky to Finn.

So Finn- I am giving you a blue bunny. Take good care of him...


azi - May 29, 2006 9:58 am (#1336 of 2575)

Thank you Tazzy! **hugs Pygmy Puff** He's such a cutie!

**stoppings petting to throw more Jello at a guy in maroon robes**


Finn BV - May 29, 2006 1:28 pm (#1337 of 2575)

Welcome Victoria and Ginny! Also, make sure you watch out for any closets that take you somewhere else. And don't touch Viola's butterflies.

Dinky!! How cool! Here, Dinky, Dinky, Dinky!


Liz Mann - May 29, 2006 2:01 pm (#1338 of 2575)

Azi, that guy you just hit in maroon robes is actually Ron! *gets protective of Ron*


azi - May 29, 2006 2:30 pm (#1339 of 2575)

Eeek, I didn't mean to hit him! I thought it was an eeevil auror!

**runs to rectify the problem by actually hitting an auror**

Woohoo, I hit that person with light blonde hair!


Finn BV - May 29, 2006 2:36 pm (#1340 of 2575)

Light blond hair… that sounds like Lucius Malfoy!!! Well, what's he doing here? Somebody do something!!

Dinky, you do something! No, Dinky's eating and can't be disturbed. Hmm…

**catches Dinky midair and puts him safely in the ward with Rinky** Honestly!

Liz Mann - May 29, 2006 10:24 pm (#1346 of 2575)

Guys, don't take your attention from the Ministry people to throw the balloons at each other, they'll get in!

*throws another balloon at Lucius* Take that Death Eater scum! *war cry*


Tazzygirl - May 29, 2006 11:07 pm (#1347 of 2575)

Liz- I fixed the front door so that if anyone who is not a patient here at St. Mungo's will be hit with lots and lots of balloons.

geauxtigers - May 30, 2006 12:08 am (#1348 of 2575)

Wow I'm so confused! The time is all messed up and I can post here on this thread even though everywhere else it says I used all 10 posts... I really am going insane! Or maybe its WX hmmmm.....

**Chucks one at computer**


Tazzygirl - May 30, 2006 12:26 am (#1349 of 2575)

WX is a little messed up on the FFF... You can edit all of your posts on this forum for a very long time too. Which comes in handy, don'tcha know?


Finn BV - May 30, 2006 12:47 am (#1350 of 2575)

Victoria, it's because forum time on WX1 (world crossing server 1) is 7 hours ahead of the forum time on the main forum. So it thinks it's 12:08 am right now, which means it's the next day so you get your posts back!

Hey! Stop hitting me guys!! Lizten to Lis! I mean, Listen to Liz!

Ooh, azi, I've got an idea! Use these chamberpots and bedpans I have here, they have false bottoms. You can hide the jello under them and fill the rest with fake vomit and stuff so that if the Ministry people even think to search them, they won't want to.

One problem with the bedpan idea, won’t it get in the way of us playying Quiddich? Oh and I see the multi-wizard tournament flame has gone out. It left with a nice female witch and appeared to be in a bit of a huff. Were we ignoring it?


Tazzygirl - Jun 6, 2006 1:44 pm (#1384 of 2575)

Ooops, didn't mean to make everyone else sick! **chews other end that stops you being sick**

We can always clean the bedpans out, Phelim...or make the Healers do it! We did get sidetracked...a little...

Glad to hear you are out of hospital!


Finn BV - Jun 6, 2006 5:00 pm (#1386 of 2575)

Yay Phelim! Come vomit with us!


Viola Intonada - Jun 7, 2006 9:12 pm (#1387 of 2575)

I'm really worried. I'm hiding in my room, every one has stopped regurgitating, and St. Mungo's is very quiet. I hope the ministry hasn't taken everyone away, or worse!


Tazzygirl - Jun 7, 2006 9:27 pm (#1388 of 2575)
Edited by Jun 7, 2006 9:27 pm

Nope, I'm still here, Viola! I have decided to hide in the closet with Rinky until the smells have disappeared. I believe the Ministry has left... **cautiously peeks out the door**

Anyone need Mrs. Skower's Magical Mess Remover?


Viola Intonada - Jun 8, 2006 12:25 am (#1389 of 2575)

* Peeks cautiously out of room* Whew! It's all clear.

I'm going to celebrate with a dip in the pool. Now just where did I leave that inflatable moose?


Tazzygirl - Jun 8, 2006 12:45 am (#1390 of 2575)

It's all clear? w00t! I'd join you in the pool, Viola, but I believe dizzy lizzy popped my inflatable kangaroo the second or so day that I arrived here.

What happened to the box of inflatables we received with the pool?


Finn BV - Jun 8, 2006 1:31 am (#1391 of 2575)
Edited by Jun 8, 2006 1:31 am

Dinky likes to go swimming. He can join you, Viola. Don't let him drown now, or we'll have to buy Zinky!


Tazzygirl - Jun 8, 2006 2:18 am (#1392 of 2575)

SPEW!! Zinky... **walks away, shaking head**


Liz Mann - Jun 8, 2006 2:16 pm (#1393 of 2575)

Hey, guys, I just bought a Jacuzzi to go next to the pool! And it's magically expanded so we can get more people in there!


Finn BV - Jun 8, 2006 3:33 pm (#1394 of 2575)

Woohoo!! **cannonballs into the Jacuzzi**


azi - Jun 8, 2006 6:43 pm (#1395 of 2575)

Yey, jacuzzi! Thanks Liz! **Fetches Archie and settles for a few hours**

Just what I needed after all that regurgitation!


Viola Intonada - Jun 9, 2006 12:04 am (#1396 of 2575)

Ah, thanks for the Jacuzzi, Liz. It's perfect!

Thanks Liz, it's a great addition!!


Phelim Mcintyre - Jun 10, 2006 10:24 am (#1398 of 2575)

I think people have fallen asleep in the jacuzzi. I'm just going to get some drinks, what do people want?


Liz Mann - Jun 10, 2006 2:10 pm (#1399 of 2575)

Something cold! We're going through a heat wave in England and so St Mungo's would be suffering too.


Phelim Mcintyre - Jun 10, 2006 2:47 pm (#1400 of 2575)

*Quick wave of wand to get breeze going* okay - nice cold pumpkin juice. Bottles of gillywater in buckets of ice. I'll also see if we can get some form of ice cream trolley from Fortesques as well while I'm at it. Oh yes and some sun tan lotion.

Good Evans - Jun 11, 2006 4:40 pm (#1404 of 2575)

Oh, so drinking the Jacuzzi water isn't such a good idea???? ***hmmn stops quickly and "aguamenti" spells the water to fill it up again.***

anyone up for water polo? If the jacuzzi is that big ?


Viola Intonada - Jun 11, 2006 8:26 pm (#1405 of 2575)

Sorry folks, I have to get out of the hot tub. I'm going to go dig in the dirt for a week. See you next week!


Phelim Mcintyre - Jun 12, 2006 8:22 am (#1406 of 2575)
Edited by Jun 12, 2006 8:22 am

Ok - here we are - pumpkin juice, gillywater, mulled mead, cherry soda. A LARGE box full of Fortesque icecreams and chocolate frogs. Sun-tan lotion. Sunglasses, and sunshades for those who prefer to be out of the sun for a bit. Oh yes and some loungers as well. Did I forget anything? Enjoy. (Collapses in the corner.)


Tazzygirl - Jun 12, 2006 8:40 am (#1407 of 2575)

Thanks, Phelim! **takes a large chocolate fudge ice cream with chopped nuts and sits in the shade** I think I had a little too much sun!


Liz Mann - Jun 12, 2006 11:44 am (#1408 of 2575)

Exellent, Phelim!

*grabs a pumpkin juice and an ice cream and goes to lounge in a deck chair in front of the pool with Stephen Fry reading Philosopher's Stone*

Is there any better place to be than this?


John Bumbledore - Jun 13, 2006 3:35 pm (#1409 of 2575)

Engorio! There, is the Jacuzzi large enough now for the water polo to begin?


<)B^D˜ John Bumbledore


Liz Mann - Jun 13, 2006 7:13 pm (#1410 of 2575)

Why do we need to play water polo in the Jacuzzi when we still have the pool?


Good Evans - Jun 13, 2006 9:07 pm (#1411 of 2575)

too lazy to get out of the jacuzzi to play I think Liz!!! Well, we are insane!! thanks Phelim for the refreshments


azi - Jun 13, 2006 9:11 pm (#1412 of 2575)

Mmm, Jacuzzi. I may be here a few more days...


geauxtigers - Jun 14, 2006 10:18 pm (#1413 of 2575)

Bumbledore, CATCH! **throws the water polo ball to Bumbledore into the jacuzzi**

I'll take some pumpkin juice and join y'all in the hot tub!


dizzy lizzy - Jun 15, 2006 6:20 am (#1414 of 2575)

Well I'd join you... but dogs really smell when their coat is wet and I don't think you want a pongy Jacuzzi!!!!! So I'll just sit here and chew my bone some more....



Good Evans - Jun 19, 2006 6:25 pm (#1415 of 2575)

eeekkk - I've been in the jacuzzi for 6 days, must get out, oh my skin looks like a prune, well maybe just five more minutes........


azi - Jun 19, 2006 6:41 pm (#1416 of 2575)

**jerks awake** Oooops, I think I fell asleep.

**jumps out of jacuzzi** C'mon Archie, lets go get some food! Anyone want some chocolate and biscuits?


Tazzygirl - Jun 19, 2006 6:44 pm (#1417 of 2575)

Oooh! I do! I do! **slowly gets to feet** Wow, that was a loooooong nap.


Liz Mann - Jun 20, 2006 9:12 am (#1418 of 2575)

Ahh! Nothing like a nap in a jacuzzi! Lovely and warm! *jumps out and goes off to get food*


Good Evans - Jun 20, 2006 12:37 pm (#1419 of 2575)

chocolate, oh Azi that is enough to get me out of this jacuzzi!!!

ah! I seem to have shrunk several sizes in the water- hmmn better eat lots of choccie to refill my hospital gown!!

**squelches off after Azi in hope of chocolate**


azi - Jun 20, 2006 3:09 pm (#1420 of 2575)

Well, I just got Cadbury's Dairy Milk Caramel for half price! Tuck in!

I also have rich tea biscuits (mmm) and crackers and cheese.


Good Evans - Jun 20, 2006 6:48 pm (#1421 of 2575)

mmmmmmmm cadbury's dairy milk of any type gimmee gimmee gimmee, oh I see there are some on the shelf **pockets two** whistling and looking innocent!!


pyrogrl - Jun 20, 2006 8:09 pm (#1422 of 2575)

Just remember to never put your head under the water in a hot tub!!


Elfcat - Jun 21, 2006 5:43 pm (#1423 of 2575)

*drops unexpectedly from the ceiling, landing in the jacuzzi with sufficient force to splash out all the water and remaining inmates*

I'M FINALLY BACK!! Holy cow, that was a long time without internet.

Sorry, did I get your food wet?


azi - Jun 21, 2006 6:17 pm (#1424 of 2575)

I'd already eaten all mine, Elfcat!

So, the invasion is over, we've had jacuzzi time...what do we do now? **looks around expectantly**


Tazzygirl - Jun 22, 2006 12:46 am (#1425 of 2575)

hmmmmmm... I don't know Azi. **gives Rinky a bit of chocolate**


Phelim Mcintyre - Jun 22, 2006 8:18 am (#1426 of 2575)

*Yawns* Oh the torch has just come back in, sporting a black eye. Is it too hot here at St Mungo's for the wizard tornanment? What's the first task? And does anyone have a piece of raw steak for that eye?

Or should we just get back in the jacuzzi?


azi - Jun 22, 2006 2:17 pm (#1427 of 2575)

Personally, I'm currently freezing. **Gets chocolate orange flavoured hot chocolate**

What's the first task Phelim? Maybe if we know what it is, we will be able to decide whether to do it now or not?


Phelim Mcintyre - Jun 22, 2006 2:21 pm (#1428 of 2575)

Not sure, anyone any ideas what the first task could be?


Liz Mann - Jun 22, 2006 4:26 pm (#1429 of 2575)

It's okay, the heat wave is over in the UK. It's cloudy and dull again. But not cold or rainy, so it could be ideal conditions for a tournament.


Emily - Jun 23, 2006 11:25 pm (#1430 of 2575)

Ah, back to insanity after two weeks of my summer job (at a camp). Well, for the next 40 hours, anyway. St. Mungo's has been really slow, everyone must be lazy because of the heat. It was incredibly hot where I've been too. Oh, and two weeks without a computer means I'm slow at typing too . . . so frustrating. But I'll take some of that ice cream, if there's any left!


Phelim Mcintyre - Jun 24, 2006 3:36 pm (#1431 of 2575)

Um, first task, first task.... What should it be? Dragons are a bit obvious and I'm not sure the healers would be pleased with dragons in St Mungo's.

I know, the first task is to come up with something dangerous for the second task.


dobbyiscool - Jun 25, 2006 1:18 am (#1432 of 2575)

Good idea.

Who's competing in this, and who are the judges?


Finn BV - Jun 25, 2006 2:54 pm (#1433 of 2575)

Wazzat? Huh?

*wanders in strangely from closet where they keep cushions and bongo drums*

So, I was in Spain, France, Monaco, Italy and the Netherlands for the past two weeks. What a closet!

Um, it was fun. But what's going on?


Phelim Mcintyre - Jun 26, 2006 8:50 am (#1434 of 2575)

Dobby, anyone who wants to can compete. And anyone who competes automatically becomes a judge.


dobbyiscool - Jun 26, 2006 6:01 pm (#1435 of 2575)

Sounds fun, but I think I'll be a bystander, or the cheering section.


pyrogrl - Jun 27, 2006 3:11 am (#1436 of 2575)

As will I. THIS is the reason behind life at St. Mungo's:

I think I watched that one too many times, and that's why I'm here now.


virginiaelizabeth2 - Jun 27, 2006 4:30 am (#1437 of 2575)

Ohhh man pyro that's a reason to be committed in itself!


Tazzygirl - Jun 27, 2006 5:48 am (#1438 of 2575)

ROFL. Wow. That was... interesting, Pyro!


Good Evans - Jun 27, 2006 7:30 pm (#1439 of 2575)

Liz Mann - Jun 27, 2006 9:37 pm (#1440 of 2575)

pyrogrl - Jun 27, 2006 10:15 pm (#1442 of 2575)

Actually no, I'm not an egg fan.

Being as it is super hot here in SE England today, I have chilled the butter beer, trouble is the spell was a bit strong and it is now like stone, will it explode when it melts??

hmmn just break the bottle around it and use it as a butter beer ice lolly, sluuuurrrrpppp


azi - Jul 1, 2006 8:58 pm (#1444 of 2575)

It's quiet around here! Hmm, need to think of something for the Triwizard about we slay that dragon that just appeared in the corner? The last thing we need is hot fire on a day like this...

**runs into bare wall**

Oh, wait, turns out the dragon was just a mirage. I've been reading too much.


dobbyiscool - Jul 2, 2006 4:22 pm (#1445 of 2575)

I just thought of this while watching England lose yesterday... is the quidditch world cup the same years as the soccer one? If so, we could have that playing on a TV or something while we brainstorm the next task.


Liz Mann - Jul 2, 2006 10:05 pm (#1446 of 2575)

We could, except the Muggles don't have that type of camera.

I won't be able to watch anyway, because I'm going to Scotland for two weeks! Edinburgh and Fort William - I'll be seeking J.K. Rowling in the cafes and searching for Hogwarts in the highlands. So I'll see you all on the sixteenth!


Tazzygirl - Jul 2, 2006 11:02 pm (#1447 of 2575)

Have fun Liz! (and if you see JKR, tell her I say Hi!! )


Phelim Mcintyre - Jul 3, 2006 8:44 am (#1448 of 2575)

And that we want book seven ASAP!


azi - Jul 3, 2006 10:06 am (#1449 of 2575)

Sounds great Liz! Bring back some Scottish Tablet for us all!

Then again, I have two boxes here from my aunt. Anyone want some (it's basically sugar!)?

I think the cup might actually be the same years... **attempts maths** Book 4 is 1994/5? So it would be?


dobbyiscool - Jul 3, 2006 6:52 pm (#1450 of 2575)

That's what I figured too, I was just wondering if they had the same breaks between as the soccer (or futball to everyone else) World Cup.

Oh!.. it seems that Azi's "mirage" comes complete with breathing fire... methinks this may not be a mirage afterall


azi - Jul 9, 2006 8:23 pm (#1454 of 2575)

Eeek, there is a dragon???

Oh, it burnt down my just completed Phantom of the Opera stage set! Now I can't do my solo re-enactment of the play!

Argh, Archie! The dragon burnt it's fur! Random objects I can take the destruction of, but hurting Archie takes the biscuit!

**Angrily runs after dragon...even though it appears to be invisible**

Viola Intonada - Jul 10, 2006 1:32 am (#1459 of 2575)

Howdy, everyone!

I think that JKR herself should be joining us here at St. Mungo's sometime soon. At least that would be the only explanation I can think of for M. Night Shamalamadingdong being considered to direct an HP movie.


Tazzygirl - Jul 10, 2006 2:12 am (#1460 of 2575)

I'll talk to him, Finn.


pyrogrl - Jul 10, 2006 3:26 am (#1461 of 2575)

Eeep, Archie! **runs and scoops him up, just before Dinky eats him**

**Throws Dinky in assumed direction of the dragon** Tha'll teach ya to hurt my Archie!

Oh, the dragon is actually the opposite way to Dinky now... I'm going to run!

(On a side note, I wouldn't mind JKR joining us here...but to have that director...don't put me through it!!!)


Marie E. - Jul 11, 2006 1:57 am (#1463 of 2575)

Viola Intonada - Jul 13, 2006 2:43 am (#1466 of 2575)

Ooo, you get a good view of the hosptial grounds from here! **waves to everyone**


Good Evans - Jul 13, 2006 3:53 pm (#1471 of 2575)

The trouble is though Azi is that you are hanging upside down and the blood is probably rushing to your head!

Anyone seen the dragon recently? Only I thought I saw a faiint trickle of steam from the kitchens....


Viola Intonada - Jul 13, 2006 3:56 pm (#1472 of 2575)

OOOooo, I hope the dragon isn't eating any lime jello in there!


azi - Jul 13, 2006 4:21 pm (#1473 of 2575)

Yeah, I'm getting a bit dizzy now...anyone know how to let me down?

Hmm, I can't see the dragon, but I can see what looks like upturned trees over near the forest I never noticed before!


Tazzygirl - Jul 14, 2006 5:13 am (#1474 of 2575)

Azi, while your up there, can you please retrieve Rinky? He's gone out of my reach.

I'll join in the cleaning! Maybe we'll find relics of some fasinating story of residents past. Like this silver goblet here. Who could have drunk from this? For all we know someone could have been holding this very goblet when something interesting happened. I love this sort of stuff. If only these objects could talk.

Hey, maybe that's a new job for Gred and Forge, developing a spell or something that'll allow objects to tell their stories! Or better yet, allow rooms to tell their stories!


Good Evans - Jul 20, 2006 7:11 am (#1483 of 2575)

can't be bothered to clean, too hot, I'll just flick my wand a bit - **** CRRRRash, bins emptied over Tazzy.... **** ah, that wasn't quite what I had in mind, "Scourgify" quick, whistles innocently and hides wand!!!

**back to spring cleaning** The place is almost clean!

Uh, Fin?!?! You had better be careful with that pencil. As you know, the healers don't allow us to have wands. So, many of us have transfigured ours into innocent looking objects. Just becareful of how you wave it around. Okay?

Ah! There's nothing like Spring cleaning in the middle of summer. May I join in? My room is definitely over due.

Well, I think I'll draw attention to the pencil, and then be nasty and prove the Healers' accusations wrong by showing them, "Ha! It's just a Muggle pencil." And then I'll do some taunts in a sing-song voice. **anticipates gleefully**

But thanks for the warning. **reTransfigures wand from an antenna to a magnifying glass*


Tazzygirl - Jul 26, 2006 6:13 am (#1493 of 2575)

Hey guys, I was cleaning out the Obsessive-Compulsive-Quidditch Disorder Ward when I found this manky old boot. It doesn't belong to me or my roommates and I was wondering if anyone had lost...

*suddenly vanishes into thin-air*


Finn BV - Jul 27, 2006 1:30 am (#1495 of 2575)

Liz!!! NOOOOOOOO!!!! Hmm, wonder what that boot could have been?

*wonders where Liz ended up and if it's nicer than St. Mungo's… not that that's possible…**

Oh no, Liz has gone? Is there a matching boot for someone to follow wherever she went???

**looks around frantically**


Good Evans - Jul 27, 2006 8:47 pm (#1497 of 2575)

**bouncing out of bed and twitching no more*** Quick search the wards, Liz has been transported, I smell something fishy here, I suspect it is a herring!! (oh no, that was potty five words!) ah well we had better split up and search the wardrobes, there may be another world here......


Viola Intonada - Jul 28, 2006 2:07 am (#1498 of 2575)

You won't believe the size of the dust bunnies I just cleaned out from underneath my bed. I was worried one of them might bite me.

I was cleaning out a closet down the hallway. I found a set of bagpipes, a rather large deflated rubber duck and a dusty disco ball. Ah, memories.....


Finn BV - Jul 28, 2006 2:32 am (#1499 of 2575)

What's this? Oh, hey, the second issue of Martin Miggs, the Mad Muggle!! I love this one!! **reads intently**


pyrogrl - Jul 28, 2006 5:30 am (#1500 of 2575)

Whoa, what on earth is this? **Holds up large purple furry suit** Resembles a sloth, don't you think? I wonder where it came from.

Liz, where art thou?!!!

Kip Carter - Aug 1, 2006 10:21 pm (#1502 of 2575)

Liz, you are very correct. I have sent an email to Sysop Judy at World Crossing and added a post to the World Crossing Support Forum. At present, I have not received a response from either.

I wish I could say more, but until I know more, that is the best I can add to the discussion.

Wow, where am I? It's dark. Umm . . . *Pulls flute out and whispers lumos* Much better. Some kind of wardrobe? And what's that tapping? It's 'Thrilled me- filed me with fantastic terrors never felt before; / So that now, to still the beating of my heart, I stood repeating, / "'Tis some late visitor entreating entrance at my chamber door / Some late visitor entreating entrance at my door;- / This it is and nothing more.'

Oops . . . sorry. I meant . . . yeah, that tapping is annoying. *Pushes Wardrobe door open and immediately trips and falls over azi* Oops again. Well, she's asleep, so I'll just put her back in this very convenient wardrobe and try to stop that noise . . . . Hey, where'e Liz?

I love it. I think we ARE being haunted. Maybe it's the Weasley ghoul? They have a ghoul right? Sorry that sounded bad but I'm realy really really tired. Only I can't sleep cuz I'm a fraid of phantoms and such...I keep hearing a very threatening tapping noise. You know what we need? *drumrol*

DANNY PHANTOM!! (anyone know how to reach him??)

Wingardium Leviosa (swish and flick!) **levitates Azi and Archie away from the wardrobe in order to shove the mirror in front of it** puts ear to wall, definitely some faint taps going on behind there.

Oh I know what happened. I posted when I was half asleep and did some form of internet astral travel. Now I'm awake I should be solid (I hope). *Walks towards wall* Ouch. Yep I'm solid.

Oh em gee.

I seriously had this...well...interesting dream last night. Harry, Ron, Luna, Daphne Greengrass, Hermione, and Draco were all...well...

I don't even know if I should say it. It's just so WEIRD!! But...they WERE...

They were in partners: Harry/Luna, Ron/Daphne, and Hermione/Draco. And they were...dancing. But no ORDINARY dance. It was...


Oh, how I love it...!!!

HOWEVER. They were doing it differently. They partners, as I said, so all the moves were done while facing each other.

...I've been away from St. Mungo's too long, I think.

Hi, everyone! I'm back after being away for months, and I have no excuse for that. I was a bit afraid of coming here because I just came back from another hospital a week ago. I spent 2 loooooooong weeks there. It's nice to be home! Though I still have restrictions about food. Well, that's why I came here! I suppose I can eat popcorn and pumpkin seeds here. And, of course, I came back because I missed you all, not only because of popcorn...

SPEW!! Poor Dinky- er- I mean Din and Ky! Now Rinky has two rabbits to keep him company!

**chokes on a potato skin, laughing so hard**


Liz Mann - Sep 14, 2006 7:59 pm (#1588 of 2575)

You don't have to eat them, just catch them. In fact it's probably better if you don't eat them so that you can prove how many you've caught.

*waves back at Elfcat*


Finn BV - Sep 15, 2006 2:14 am (#1589 of 2575)

But er, second part to the story is… I lost Ky. So I just have Din now. Sorry.


Phelim Mcintyre - Sep 15, 2006 8:11 am (#1590 of 2575)

Finn, I think I saw Ky running around by the Welcome Desk. I'll just go an check.


Liz Mann - Sep 15, 2006 1:10 pm (#1591 of 2575)

We'd better find Ky quick, before he gets near the attic.


Tazzygirl - Sep 15, 2006 7:45 pm (#1592 of 2575)

**sends Rinky off to find Ky**


Finn BV - Sep 15, 2006 11:59 pm (#1593 of 2575)

UH-OH!!!! Look what I found!!!

Y!!! But no K!!!!

… . darned Apparation…

Yey! **Dances**

So do we have 4 of them whole, or 4 parts? Can we reverse it?

Ooo, we could have family reunion party!

**Makes chocolate cake with chocolate butter icing and rainbow sprinkles appear**


Tazzygirl - Sep 16, 2006 8:59 pm (#1597 of 2575)

No, K is not dead. Rinky just played with him a little bit- thought it was one of his toys. I think a couple Reparo charms will fix Din, K, and Y!


Phelim Mcintyre - Sep 17, 2006 3:42 pm (#1598 of 2575)

Um Finn. We have a problem. A certain Dr Lockhart decided to do a reparo spell and we now have a YDinK. NOW what do we do?


Finn BV - Sep 17, 2006 6:00 pm (#1599 of 2575)

Dratted Gilderoy…

Let's try something else… YKniD. Uh-oh!! What did I do??


Liz Mann - Sep 17, 2006 6:42 pm (#1600 of 2575)

Let me try.

Whoops! Now we have DYniK.

Just wondering... what does a YDinK, YKniD or DYniK look like??

Don't worry, Phelim, it has a charm on it so that when the healers look it at all they'll see is a badly-made paper trophy. They'll just think we're being insane again, thinking we've been off playing Quidditch on bedpans.

Phelim Mcintyre - Oct 23, 2006 9:09 am (#1642 of 2575)

So sherry with the starter - I suggest watercress soup. A nice full-bodied red wine with the roast beef. And port afterwards. (Must do this properly you know.)

Well actually if we were it would be: Starter; Soup; Fish; Main (Meat); Sweet; Dessert. But I'm not sure I've got room for all of it. But who wants to try?

Liz Mann - Oct 30, 2006 10:52 am (#1658 of 2575)

It's always warm enough to swim, Tazzy, the pool's self-heating. In fact, the air around the pool is self-heating, so you can lounge in the deck chairs and not get cold.

If that's what's under your bed, Finn, I'm never coming in that wing.

I heard the Healers talking and apparently the Ministry have decided that the hospital is too drab, and that that is likely to make us miserable rather than 'cure' us. So they've given us funds to completely re-decorate St Mungo's and make it more cheerful and comfortable, and they're going to allow us to decorate it ourselves, especially our own wards. They think this will help 'cure' us by distracting us from Harry Potter (personally I think it will have the opposite effect ).


azi - Nov 10, 2006 1:57 pm (#1668 of 2575)

Woohoo, painting time! Can we paint a picture of Hogwarts? And a BIG picture of Harry!

Although I may wake up in the middle of the night and be scared of his eyes peering through the darkness...

*Falls down at Julie's feet after she opens the cupboard* Whew! Thanks for opening up the cupboard. I've been stuck in there for months. *blinks due to the bright light* Oooo, is it time to put up Christmas decorations? Yeah!!! I love decorating for Christmas.

I think I will put up a small tree in my room and decorate it with butterflies. *skips to her room, carefully avoiding any closets*

*the thought of Magical Red Bull sounds interesting*

*checks into the Must-Stop-Watching-Sneak-Peeks-Of-OoP-Ward*

* decorates with fairies*



Pigwidgeon - Dec 7, 2006 2:14 pm (#1703 of 2575)

*comes careening through the door, tattered map in hand*

Woohoo! Found my way back from the land of (somewhat) sanity! I am now officially done with school; turned in my final paperwork yesterday!

Bring on the butterbeer and let’s party! There's a dozen barrels of it outside -- wingardium leviosa!!


Phelim Mcintyre - Dec 7, 2006 3:04 pm (#1704 of 2575)

Good to see you Viola. We missed you for the end of the Quidditch season. But people trapped in cupboards and magical maps. What next, a secret passage under my bed?


azi - Dec 7, 2006 4:52 pm (#1705 of 2575)

But wait...if Viola was in that cupboard, where did I put Archie?

**searches, only to get run over by a dozen barrels of butterbeer**



Liz Mann - Dec 7, 2006 10:20 pm (#1706 of 2575)

Yey, lost inmates turning up for Christmas.


Elfcat - Dec 9, 2006 1:23 am (#1707 of 2575)

Add one more to that list, Liz,( and this time I swear i'm BACK, not just checking in). (Webcomics rule, but they are distracting.)

Helloooooooooo Mungo's! Yay WHOA! *dodges flying butterbeer* Hey! Somebody could get killed! You people ought to watch what you're doing! *turns around, takes one step and promptly falls in the Jacuzzi*


Who put that there?


Liz Mann - Dec 9, 2006 7:26 pm (#1708 of 2575)

Don't complain, Elfcat, just enjoy the bubbles.


azi - Dec 9, 2006 8:32 pm (#1709 of 2575)

**puts stockings on the magically-enlarged fireplace for all St. Mungo's inhabitants**


Phelim Mcintyre - Dec 9, 2006 8:35 pm (#1710 of 2575)

Okay, what's your favourite Christmas carol/song? God rest you merry hippogriffs is a good start. Or if you're in England how about I'm Dreaming of A Wet Christmas?


Liz Mann - Dec 10, 2006 12:41 am (#1711 of 2575)

Well a wet Christmas is more likely than a white Christmas. We don't get snow here until February now. Dang global warming.


Viola Intonada - Dec 10, 2006 3:37 am (#1712 of 2575)

Well, We will just have to make sure we have a white Christmas in St. Mungo's. Anybody know a spell to make snow? I'm sure Hermione has to know one...

I have my tree all decorated now. The butterflies look wonderful, if I do say so myself.

*Helps tap butter beer keg* Congrats Pigwidgeon! *Passes her a HUGE mug of butter beer*

*sings* Jingle bells, the dungeon smells. Snape has gone astray....


azi - Dec 10, 2006 1:02 pm (#1713 of 2575)

Liz I adore your avatar! **jumps up and down excitedly**

We could get a snow machine. Can we have the ice rink again?

**sings along with Viola**

Maybe we could write our own St Mungo's Christmas Song? Any ideas?


Liz Mann - Dec 10, 2006 2:18 pm (#1714 of 2575)
Edited by Dec 10, 2006 6:19 am

Thanks, Azi. I wonder if our non-Brits and Australians will know who they are.


prof sprout - Dec 10, 2006 5:11 pm (#1715 of 2575)

Walks around looking confused. Where am I. How long have a I been gone? I've missed everyone.

I hope everyone has been able to cure themselves of the different "saneness" potions that the workers have been trying to sneak into your food.

I think that is why I disappeared for so long. They must have found out I was helping you.


Liz Mann - Dec 10, 2006 11:47 pm (#1716 of 2575)
Edited by Dec 10, 2006 3:50 pm

Hurray! Long- lost forum members turning up everywhere!

Don't worry, Prof S, I'm definitely not sane. To tell you the truth, though, I think the Healers have been watching us a little closer than normal recently. I guess they think that the Christmas atmosphere might drive us to greater levels of insanity than usual.


Viola Intonada - Dec 11, 2006 5:56 am (#1717 of 2575)

Ice skating rink! What a great idea, but lets make sure that everyone is out of the pool first before we turn it into a rink this year.

Sorry Liz, I have no clue who is in your avatar.

Welcome back, Prof. Sprout. I myself was just let out of a closet recently. Preparing for Christmas will definitely keep me qualified to stay at St. Mungo's for quite a while.


Phelim Mcintyre - Dec 11, 2006 4:39 pm (#1718 of 2575)

Viola - Liz's avatar is the puppet world equivalent of Harry Potter and Ron Weasley. The bear is called Sooty and the dog is called Sweep. His magic phrase is "Izzy Wizzy Let's Get Busy".

Oh yes, Prof Sprout, me sane? How dare you. I'm may be insane but I'm not mad enough to take medicine in food. The best thing to do with jello is fire it from a catapult.


Liz Mann - Dec 11, 2006 6:10 pm (#1719 of 2575)
Edited by Dec 11, 2006 10:11 am

Sooty and Sweep are as explained at Wikipedia.


Tazzygirl - Dec 13, 2006 6:51 am (#1720 of 2575)

**walks through the front doors after painting the dragon** OOh, Watch out! He likes to bite and breathe fire!

**waves to all the newcomers and returning patients**


Elfcat - Dec 14, 2006 12:39 am (#1721 of 2575)

You know I just got this sudden flash of memory from last year....being stuck under the ice for WEEKS....GET ME OUTTA THIS JACUZZI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *Shoots five feet straight into the air*

Whew. There'll be no more of that. Hey, did you know if you stand close to this dragon painting, the fire is warm? I think my robes are starting to steam . . .nice.


Viola Intonada - Dec 14, 2006 5:15 am (#1722 of 2575)

Ooo, maybe if I stand next to the painting, the wrinkles in my robes will get steamed away. I was in that closet for a VERY long time.

Speaking of closets, I think we need to visit Fred and George's shop for some decorations, but I'm too paranoid about closets to take that route now. Does anyone have another way of getting there?


Phelim Mcintyre - Dec 17, 2006 8:52 pm (#1723 of 2575)

Who needs to go to Gred and Forges? I used owl order. *Pulls out big box* Oops, those are the mince pies. Now where did I hide the decorations? *Pulls even bigger box out from under bed* Here they are.


Pigwidgeon - Dec 17, 2006 11:20 pm (#1724 of 2575)

I can always go for ANYTHING chocolate! Anything chocolate in the catalog? *peers at owl order*


Tazzygirl - Dec 18, 2006 2:44 am (#1725 of 2575)

Did someone say chocolate?? **wanders over to where Pigwidgeon is**


azi - Dec 18, 2006 1:55 pm (#1726 of 2575)

I'm drinking hot chocolate and squirty cream.

Yey, decorations! **starts putting them on the tree**

Anyone got tinsel?


Liz Mann - Dec 18, 2006 2:41 pm (#1727 of 2575)
Edited by Dec 18, 2006 6:41 am

I have tinsel, Azi. *hands it over*


Deck the halls with loads of fairies,
Fa la la la la, la la la la
Don't eat the creams, they are canaries
Fa la la la la, la la la la
Sing we now our Christmas carol
Fa la la, la la la, la la la
Eat the squid at your own peril
Fa la la la la, la la la la


Tazzygirl - Dec 18, 2006 4:39 pm (#1728 of 2575)

I found miniature house-elf ornaments! **starts placing them variously around the tree**

**joins in with Liz** Awesome song!


pyrogrl - Dec 19, 2006 2:54 am (#1729 of 2575)

My eggnog brings all the elves to the pole
And they're like: "It's better than yours!"
That's right, it's better than yours!
But I have no more!

...Don't ask. Please.


Viola Intonada - Dec 19, 2006 6:19 am (#1730 of 2575)

Great song Liz!

Uh, Tazzy, where did those miniture house elf ornaments come from? They look pretty real.

Did I hear something about chocolate?


Tazzygirl - Dec 19, 2006 7:19 am (#1731 of 2575)

**looks innocent**


azi - Dec 19, 2006 8:34 pm (#1732 of 2575)

**takes Archie out of cupboard and decorates him with tinsel**

Aww, he's such a sweet giant pygmy puff!


Viola Intonada - Dec 20, 2006 4:51 am (#1733 of 2575)

Azi, you had better keep your pygmy puff out of my quadrotriticale! Or maybe that is just for tribbles? If Tribbles react to Klingons, do pygmy puffs react to Death Eaters?

Oh, I'm running out of shopping days. I'd better get out and buy some presents for my fellow inmates.


Liz Mann - Dec 21, 2006 6:57 pm (#1734 of 2575)
Edited by Dec 21, 2006 10:57 am

Let's celebrate! Not only is it nearly Christmas but we have a title for book seven! Woohoo! *starts a conga line*


azi - Dec 21, 2006 7:11 pm (#1735 of 2575)

**joins conga line** YEY!

Anyone got some mulled wine to celebrate?


Liz Mann - Dec 21, 2006 11:16 pm (#1736 of 2575)

No, but I have some firewhisky. *takes a swig and passes it down the conga line*


Tazzygirl - Dec 22, 2006 12:39 am (#1737 of 2575)

**Falls inline behind Azi**

**starts singing random songs**


Tazzygirl - Dec 22, 2006 6:36 am (#1738 of 2575)

I've decided to pull an all-nighter cookie baking fest in the kitchens. Anyone want to join me?


azi - Dec 22, 2006 1:14 pm (#1739 of 2575)

Ooo, yes!!! **puts apron with snow falling picture on** Can we make white chocolate and raspberry cookies?

**takes swig of firewhiskey**


Tazzygirl - Dec 22, 2006 8:05 pm (#1740 of 2575)

Yup, Azi! The kitchen is completely stocked with whatever we need!

**starts making triple chocolate with white chocolate chips and nuts cookies**


Liz Mann - Dec 22, 2006 8:53 pm (#1741 of 2575)
Edited by Dec 22, 2006 12:53 pm

Ooh, I'll help with the baking! I'm going to make shortbread cookies. Yum!


prof sprout - Dec 23, 2006 2:26 pm (#1742 of 2575)

Here are a bunch of plants to help decorate. Watch out for the love potions and mistletoe, bad combination.

I placed some presents for everyone in the corner, but be forewarned, there is a hex on them if you open them early. Your present will turn to itching powder from F & G shop, so you know that it’s not the only thing it does. The powder will only work on the opener of the present. And it is supposed to be impossible to open someone elses present. I think I have stuff labeled for everyone.

**Starts humming along to the song**


prof sprout - Dec 23, 2006 4:50 pm (#1743 of 2575)

Oh on CNN's website, they have video of a live giant squid (first time ever). Do you think it could be our headmaster out for a swim? Long live DIGS!!


Tazzygirl - Dec 23, 2006 5:20 pm (#1744 of 2575)

**Moves on to making candy cane shaped cookies**

Cool, Prof Sprout!!

*sound of owl crashing into Christmas Tree* *Takes letter from concussed owl, waves wand to fix tree* I'll try and get back tomorrow to open my present Prof Sporut, but I'm not sure how much I'll be around as I've just been told my father has lung cancer.


Tazzygirl - Dec 24, 2006 8:12 pm (#1746 of 2575)

I am so sorry to hear that, Phelim! ((((((HUGS)))))) to you and your family, and many healing charms to your dad.


Liz Mann - Dec 24, 2006 8:48 pm (#1747 of 2575)

Hugs from me too Phelim, and all the best Christmas wishes.


azi - Dec 24, 2006 10:34 pm (#1748 of 2575)

**hugs** Phelim!

Anyone want some mince pies?


Tazzygirl - Dec 25, 2006 1:00 am (#1749 of 2575)

I'll try some, Azi!! Never had mince pies before.

I think I'll make some apple pies...


Liz Mann - Dec 25, 2006 9:36 am (#1750 of 2575)

*Sudden pop as Phelim reappears with cracker in his hand* Um well, who's idea was it for a cracker as a portkey? Now its Christmas Daywhere did Prof Sprout put those presents? Oh wow - a Weasley Jumper. And a book - 1000 magical ailments you never knew you had and what to do now you know you've got them. Cool title. Now I can really make the healers think I'm ill!!!! Harry Christmas everyone. Will pass on hugs to the family.

**Searches through the gift pile for one marked for me**


azi - Dec 25, 2006 9:57 pm (#1753 of 2575)

Harry Christmas!

Tazzy - you seriously haven't had mince pies???

I got lots of chocolate this year...will keep away those dementors for a while!

**Pulls a cracker with Archie and gets a polka dot patterned hat**


Tazzygirl - Dec 26, 2006 8:07 am (#1754 of 2575)

Nope, Azi! Never! No one makes them here. I think I've been deprived.

**finds and opens gift** Cool!! It's green polka-dotted fuzzy slippers! One can never have too many slippers... *dreamy look* Thanks Prof Sprout!!


Liz Mann - Dec 26, 2006 3:19 pm (#1755 of 2575)

Well in that case, Tazzy, that is your Christmas present from me - mince pies and custard.


Finn BV - Jan 2, 2007 8:20 pm (#1756 of 2575)

**falls through the roof**


Oops, I guess I'm a little late. I've been out of my bed for too long. What's going on?


Elfcat - Jan 2, 2007 11:22 pm (#1757 of 2575)

I think I spent at least 30 hours in a car this week. The next time someone suggests we drive to Seattle for Christmas, I say we think twice or take a plane.

Well anyhow, Merry Chritsmas and a Harry new year! Even if I am late!


Tazzygirl - Jan 2, 2007 11:34 pm (#1758 of 2575)

Thanks Liz!

Happy New Year everyone!


azi - Jan 3, 2007 2:43 pm (#1759 of 2575)

Well, Christmas is over. Everything looks so much more dull now doesn't it? Are we taking the decorations down now or waiting until 12th night?

Anyone want some shortbread ginger cookies? Odd combination I know, but they're pretty nice! **Feeds Archie, who muches happily**


Elfcat - Jan 3, 2007 3:45 pm (#1760 of 2575)

Actually that sounds fantabulous, azi. *Takes a cookie, breaks it in half, eats one half and throws the other in the air for the first pet that can catch it.*

Everybody stand back, it could be a stampede!


Phelim Mcintyre - Jan 3, 2007 9:38 pm (#1761 of 2575)

Look at all these presents unopenned. Come on everyone, Prof Sprout took ages in Diagon Alley getting these for us.

Oh yes, my Dad sees the cancer specalist on Friday afternoon UK time.


Viola Intonada - Jan 7, 2007 3:43 am (#1762 of 2575)

Prayers to you and your dad, Phelim. Hope all goes well.

The last day of Christmas, I'd better open up my gift. Oooo, a new butterfly net. THANK YOU!


azi - Jan 7, 2007 4:45 pm (#1763 of 2575)

**healing charms** to your dad, Phelim!

**magically takes down all decorations with one huge sweep of a wand** Don't want bad luck for the year now, do we?

**munches on the last of the chocolate**

What do we do now?


Good Evans - Jan 7, 2007 8:24 pm (#1764 of 2575)

happy Easter everyone, where are the eggs????

It can snow anytime we want here. Inside. Fred and George are now selling indoor, non-cold, non-meltable snow in a can.

*sets it loose and immediately the room is filled with howling wind and driving snow*

Ooops! I think I accidentally bought the blizzard!


azi - Jan 16, 2007 1:09 pm (#1769 of 2575)

**wakes up with wind swirling around**

ARGH, a tornado!!! **has to be rescused by Archie because getting blown away is NOT optional**


Tazzygirl - Jan 17, 2007 1:35 am (#1770 of 2575)

AHHHH! **shivers** Now, we can't have any of that! *points 'umbrella' at oncoming blizzard and tornado, turning it into a fun snow day*

Anyone have any sleds?! Look at that hill! It's perfect for sledding down!


Elfcat - Jan 17, 2007 4:09 am (#1771 of 2575)

I hope no one was in the jacuzzi/swimming pool as it appears to have frozen over. Now where are my ice skates? Reminds me of the St Mungo Winter Olympics last year.

Did Elfcat land in the jacuzzi when it was freezing over?


Elfcat - Jan 19, 2007 12:51 am (#1775 of 2575)

No, but I think I may have landed on it just after, as i seem to be at the bottom of a tiled hole full of crushed ice.


Phelim Mcintyre - Jan 20, 2007 7:57 pm (#1776 of 2575)

Oh ice block in the jacuzzi. To escape from this wind I think I'll build and igloo.

Phelim Mcintyre - Jan 23, 2007 4:02 pm (#1779 of 2575)

Don't worry, they've gone, as they thought I was sitting by the paddling pool, playing with building blocks.


Viola Intonada - Jan 23, 2007 9:57 pm (#1780 of 2575)

Wahoo! Snow day! I will finally get to use my new sled I got, and build a snow man, and a snow fort, and ice skate, and have a snow ball fight, and ski and.......


pyrogrl - Jan 24, 2007 12:07 am (#1781 of 2575)


Oi, who locked me in my room? Bleh bleh.

Oh goodness, my mood today is indescribable. On the one hand, I'm ecstatic because I finally finished "Schadenfreude", which I've been working on since June/July. On the other hand, that also makes me really sad. That fic was like...the one place where I could put all of my own angst into a creative form without scaring people.

Oi vey.

**Starts teaching Archie how to do Scottish Folk Dancing**


Phelim Mcintyre - Jan 25, 2007 5:44 pm (#1784 of 2575)

Burn's Night?!. I wonder if the latest edition or the Quibbler has anything on how to catch a "McSporan Tartaned" Spotted Haggis? Do you think they are dangerous enough for Hagrid to keep as a pet?


azi - Jan 26, 2007 11:38 pm (#1785 of 2575)

With fangs like that? Definitely Hagrid's!

**takes tartan decorations down with a swoop of a wand**

What festival should we celebrate next?


Liz Mann - Jan 27, 2007 1:36 am (#1786 of 2575)

Maybe we could make one up and hold it annually.


Tazzygirl - Jan 27, 2007 5:25 am (#1787 of 2575)

Do we have a St. Mungo's Day?

**builds a dragon out of snow**


Phelim Mcintyre - Jan 27, 2007 12:45 pm (#1788 of 2575)

Um Tazzygirl - we've missed it. St Mungo's Day is January 13th. But I did hear Lockheat muttering something about pink hearts.


Tazzygirl - Jan 27, 2007 7:57 pm (#1789 of 2575)

Uhoh. OOps... HAPPY LATE ST. MUNGO's DAY everyone!

Maybe we can come up with something before Lockhart has a chance to turn everything pink?


Viola Intonada - Jan 28, 2007 6:58 am (#1790 of 2575)

How about if we lock Lockhart into a closet for a day and have a "Happy Non-Lockhart Day"? Where nothing will be allowed to be pink. Or maybe we could devote an entire day to the alternate uses of Lime Jello?


Tazzygirl - Jan 28, 2007 6:14 pm (#1791 of 2575)

That sounds awesome, Viola!


azi - Jan 28, 2007 8:52 pm (#1792 of 2575)

I like the idea! An Anti-pink day sounds great! to capture Lockhart...


Tazzygirl - Jan 28, 2007 10:12 pm (#1793 of 2575)

We could decorate a room with pink hearts and such, tell Lockhart that there is a party going on, and when he walks in, we can seal the door and room so he can't get out! How's that sound?


Viola Intonada - Jan 29, 2007 1:28 am (#1794 of 2575)

All we have to do is throw a stack of photos, quill and ink into the room and tell him someone wants his autograph. I've heard that his joined up writing is getting better.

Better yet, tell him there is a photographer in there that wants to take his picture. We won't even have to lock the door!


Phelim Mcintyre - Jan 29, 2007 2:44 pm (#1795 of 2575)

Or simply tell him that some Cornish pixies are after him and a cupboard is pixie proof. Make sure there is a full sized mirror in there to keep him occupied as he brushes his hair.


Viola Intonada - Jan 30, 2007 3:14 am (#1796 of 2575)

Excellent idea, Phelim. I will take care of that right now.


Viola Intonada - Feb 1, 2007 5:43 am (#1797 of 2575)

Wow! Did eveeryone else follow Lockhart into the room? Where is everyone? Hello? Anyone home?

*wanders through halls looking for signs of life*


Tazzygirl - Feb 1, 2007 8:52 am (#1798 of 2575)

**bangs wildly on door**

Lockhart grabbed my arm and dragged me in! Help!!!! I can't get out!


Liz Mann - Feb 1, 2007 5:11 pm (#1799 of 2575)

Deathly Hallows release date is 21st July. Let's party!


azi - Feb 1, 2007 8:39 pm (#1800 of 2575)

Well, it'll be a very long pre-release party, but why not?

**switches on music and dances**

Don't forget the HP themed party hats! They move!

Book Early For A Room With A Golden Bedpan

Post  Lady Arabella on Mon May 06, 2013 8:48 pm


prof sprout - Feb 1, 2007 10:57 pm (#1801 of 2575)

Okay guys you know the drill. I'm taking reservations for the “Do Not disturb Me, I'm Reading!” room. Remember this is a benefit, not a right and residents that misbehave will be put in the “I Can't Read Because My Younger Sibling Won't Leave Me Alone” ward. If you don't have a younger sibling, one will be provided.

Book early for a room with a golden bed pan.

Prof. Sprout.


Liz Mann - Feb 1, 2007 11:22 pm (#1802 of 2575)

I'll take one.


Viola Intonada - Feb 2, 2007 4:14 am (#1803 of 2575)

Me! Me! Me! Me! Me! Me! Reserve a space for me, please. *jumps up and down, excitedly*

Should we let Lockhart out of the room now that we have another reason to party? or should we just leave him in there a while?

*Carefully lets Tazzy out with out releasing Lockhart*

Sorry about locking you in there with Lockhart, Tazzy. How many signed photos did he try to give you? Did he force you to help him with his fan letter?

**falls out of room, Lockhart holding onto a foot** Thanks Viola! It was pretty bad- he tried to get me to take 40 autographed pictures, AND was just about to force me to start writing fan mail. Perfect timing!

Prof. Sprout- **jumps up and down waving hand madly** Add me to the list, please!!!


azi - Feb 2, 2007 10:39 am (#1805 of 2575)

**looks down at menu for Do Not Disturb ward**

Erm, I'll take the golden bedpan, food to bedside service, with extra cheese.

**starts dancing again**


Liz Mann - Feb 2, 2007 2:03 pm (#1806 of 2575)

I wonder if we can book the weird sisters for our party.


Phelim Mcintyre - Feb 3, 2007 8:36 pm (#1807 of 2575)

Um, I'd like to book a bed but I'm being let out for Sectus. See I have this note here saying I can go. NO Lockhart, I do not need your signature. GO AWAY, I SAID GO AWAY. Oh look is that a pixie? (That got rid of him. Quick lock the cupboard before he tries to get out again.)


Liz Mann - Feb 4, 2007 12:16 am (#1808 of 2575)

I'm going to Sectus too but I'm coming back to the “Do Not Disturb Me I'm Reading Ward” in the evenings.


Phelim Mcintyre - Feb 4, 2007 4:28 pm (#1809 of 2575)

Yeah Liz, I'm also the Muggle Studies professor for the Class stream. I will chase up on the mobile ward, I mean meeting room for those of us going to Sectus.


Elfcat - Feb 6, 2007 3:38 pm (#1810 of 2575)

Ooh! I want a room! (am I a lousy fan because I don't know what Sectus is...? All signs point to probably....)

Er, thanks for the picture, Gilderoy. NO Gildy that's my hand, don't sign it. HEY! GET OFF, I SAY!! *beats Lockhart off with a rather large flyswatter*


Phelim Mcintyre - Feb 6, 2007 8:51 pm (#1811 of 2575)

Elfcat - Sectus is a BIG Harry Potter Fan gathering in London this July. And yes, the conference is on when the new book is released.

That Lockhart is getting worse. I thought I had locked him in the cupboard. If it wasn't Lockhart who was it?


Viola Intonada - Feb 8, 2007 5:29 pm (#1812 of 2575)

*knocks from inside cupboard* Help! Let me out! Who locked me up in this cupboard? One moment I was standing next to Lockhart, trying to refuse the 10th signed photograph he was trying to give me, then I was locked in this cupboard.


Phelim Mcintyre - Feb 8, 2007 6:37 pm (#1813 of 2575)
Edited by Feb 8, 2007 10:37 am

*opens cupboard* Oooops, sorry Viola. But what's your secret with Lockhart. Only ten signed photographs! If I took all the ones he had tried to give me it would cover all the walls. Sorry Lockhart, I don't want another photograph. I have a nice pile already. I hear that the James Thickey ward is planning a Valentine's day party. Why don't you go and help decorate it?


Liz Mann - Feb 8, 2007 9:10 pm (#1814 of 2575)
Edited by Feb 8, 2007 1:10 pm

It's the Janus Thickley ward.

Nice to see you back again, Viola! If you want a room in the 'Don't Disturb Me I'm Reading' ward, you have to book now. Unless of course you're going to be released for Sectus.


pyrogrl - Feb 9, 2007 1:46 am (#1815 of 2575)

I'll book a room in that ward!

Meantime, I'll be over in the "Pining Over Broadway Stars and Over the Completion of a Fic" ward with all 76 pages of "Schadenfreude" and a picture of John Tartaglia.

AHHH. I just squashed a bug on the picture of the grad dress of my dreams! ...Ew.

Do you have to be over eighteen to attend Sectus? Well, I suppose it doesn't matter, since I don't have the money for a plane ticket to London anyways.


Phelim Mcintyre - Feb 9, 2007 9:04 am (#1816 of 2575)

Pyro - yes you do need to be over 18. Oh well, maybe another year.


pyrogrl - Feb 9, 2007 7:46 pm (#1817 of 2575)

Gee. I'll be eighteen in like...nine-and-a-half months. Darn it.

Ah well. Promise to tell us all about it, whoever goes!


Phelim Mcintyre - Feb 10, 2007 12:53 pm (#1818 of 2575)

Not a problem - the worse thing is being away from a computer to post on the Forum and chat re the next book with all my fellow inmates. Why are we here? Because we know too much about the books!!!


Viola Intonada - Feb 12, 2007 2:43 am (#1819 of 2575)

Pyro, just use some aging serum. The twins might still have some that they would sell to you.


Finn BV - Feb 12, 2007 6:00 am (#1820 of 2575)

*pops out of bedknob*

Erm, what's been going on, I seem to have been on a month-long vacation to visit my ailing great-aunt Georgiana who has the flu!


Phelim Mcintyre - Feb 12, 2007 6:57 pm (#1821 of 2575)

What's been happening? Um, trying to stop Lockhart putting pink hearts up all over the place, giving out signed photos, and signing anything that stands still. And everyone getting over excited about the new and last Harry Potter book coming out. Over excited. No not possible. Do book your bed in the reading ward if you want to.


Liz Mann - Feb 13, 2007 1:46 pm (#1822 of 2575)
Edited by Feb 13, 2007 5:46 am

I'm feeling particularly HP crazy today. I had nightmares last night about stuff happening in the books that I didn't want, mainly because I was re-reading HBP before I went to bed, found a worrying passage that I had forgotten about, and fell asleep thinking about it. And I have been impatient to get home all morning so I could post on the main forum about it.

I'm not a particularly happy bunny right now.


Tazzygirl - Feb 14, 2007 6:35 am (#1823 of 2575)
Edited by Feb 13, 2007 10:36 pm

**hands a butterbeer to Liz** I'm sorry! I think many of us are going through that. I had a HP dream the other night too that wasn't good.

It's Valentine's Day. Did we lock up Lockhart properly????


Phelim Mcintyre - Feb 14, 2007 9:16 am (#1824 of 2575)

I last saw him heading up stairs. But we'd better lock the door anyway just in case.... Who put that great pink heart up in the centre of the ceiling? Oh pesky pixies - he's got back in. Everyone HIDE or should that be quick anti-Lockhart charms. All together now....


Viola Intonada - Feb 14, 2007 7:52 pm (#1825 of 2575)

Happy Valentine's Day, Everyone! Lockhart didn't arrange for any singing telegrams, has he?


Phelim Mcintyre - Feb 15, 2007 9:10 am (#1826 of 2575)

Valentine's Day is over and none appeared. May be the locking charm I put on the door kept them out. May be it kept everyone else out as well, its too quiet in here. I know they're just hiding in case there were any singing telegrams.

pyrogrl - Feb 15, 2007 11:19 pm (#1828 of 2575)

Okay, I'm pretty much going to break every single one of the rules of the forum but I should be forgiven because the news is INCREDIBLE. Here goes:


Meaning that I probably will be on here less because I will be OBSESSING over EVERY. LITTLE. THING. BUT AHHH. Yay for me!


Tazzygirl - Feb 16, 2007 6:38 am (#1829 of 2575)

Congrats Pyro!! We'll make sure the Healers don't notice when you are gone. **evil grin**


Pigwidgeon - Feb 22, 2007 4:41 am (#1830 of 2575)

That's awesome, Pyro! A huge role, to be sure. I love that musical -- I've seen it four times. Now that should qualify me for a bunk here, heh.

Break a leg!


azi - Feb 22, 2007 11:22 am (#1831 of 2575)

Well, it's been quite here the past couple of days! Has everyone been munching on pancakes?

**eats pancakes with Archie** We made too many.


Liz Mann - Feb 24, 2007 1:21 am (#1832 of 2575)

Actually, Hagrid has started an owl-order bakery service and sent us free samples of his toffee, so my jaws have been cemented together for a while.


Phelim Mcintyre - Feb 24, 2007 9:22 pm (#1833 of 2575)
Edited by Feb 24, 2007 1:24 pm

Toffee - I thought it was a new building material? I've been sat in the corner building a wall with it.

As its toffee we want to give it to the healers? Or just Lockhart? Or should I just keep this wall in front of the door the healers use to keep them out?


Phelim Mcintyre - Feb 28, 2007 6:55 pm (#1834 of 2575)

Um, may be it's not the healers that I've walled out! Oh dear. May be I should dismantle this wall. Well I would dismantle the wall if it wasn't stuck together. Ooops.


azi - Feb 28, 2007 7:23 pm (#1835 of 2575)
Edited by Feb 28, 2007 11:24 am

**speaks in muffled voice**

Help, I'm stuck inside the wall!!!


Liz Mann - Feb 28, 2007 10:55 pm (#1836 of 2575)
Edited by Feb 28, 2007 2:55 pm

Oh no, another person stuck in the wall! I'll go get the sledge hammer.


Tazzygirl - Mar 1, 2007 1:04 am (#1837 of 2575)

I'll get some pillows to muffle the hammering, and hopefully it will help not hurt anyone stuck in the wall!


Phelim Mcintyre - Mar 1, 2007 8:59 am (#1838 of 2575)

Azi - eat your way out. Hold on, this is Hagrid's cooking we're talking about. Azi - DON'T eat your way out. (Conjours up a pneumatic drill and ear defenders for every one) Hope this drill works.


Phelim Mcintyre - Mar 4, 2007 4:50 pm (#1839 of 2575)

Sorry Azi, but the toffee has blunted the drill. Any luck with the hammers?


azi - Mar 4, 2007 7:08 pm (#1840 of 2575)
Edited by Mar 4, 2007 11:09 am

**muffled voice** Oh dear...

Anyone have a blowtorch? We could melt my way out!


Phelim Mcintyre - Mar 4, 2007 7:33 pm (#1841 of 2575)

Or we could all use spells to make flames. But do we really want melted toffee all over the ward floor?


azi - Mar 4, 2007 7:40 pm (#1842 of 2575)

It'll be fun watching the healer's slip on it! OR we could have a toffee rink!


Tazzygirl - Mar 4, 2007 9:54 pm (#1843 of 2575)
Edited by Mar 4, 2007 1:54 pm

I have a blowtorch! I was saving it to make giant sugar sculptures in the kitchen, but haven't had a chance yet. Maybe we could make statues out of the toffee as it melts?


Viola Intonada - Mar 6, 2007 3:25 am (#1844 of 2575)

Oooo, I want to make toffee statues! Hang in there Azi. *Butterflies come swarming in to land on the wall of toffee*

Wait, Tazzy, hold that blow torch! Don't hurt my butterflies! *Tries to shoo butterflies off of the toffee* Hey, they're eating it. Aw, I was really looking forward to making toffee statues....


Tazzygirl - Mar 6, 2007 4:09 am (#1845 of 2575)
Edited by Mar 5, 2007 8:11 pm

Viola! You have to catch your butterflies, they aren't eating the toffee, they are starting to stick! (Is thinking of Jurassic Park and the mosquitos in amber... )


Liz Mann - Mar 6, 2007 6:27 pm (#1846 of 2575)

One day, when butterflies are extinct, Muggle scientists will find yours stuck in the toffee, extract their DNA and create a bunch of giant vicious butterflies and try to use them in a theme park, but the butterflies will spin cocoons around all the staff and escape upon the world.


Phelim Mcintyre - Mar 7, 2007 8:36 pm (#1847 of 2575)

What will it be called - Harry Potter versus Monmotha?


Viola Intonada - Mar 7, 2007 10:19 pm (#1848 of 2575)

ROFL!!! Sounds like the start of a new fan fic!

*Rushes to save butterflies from getting stuck*

Oh well, as soon as I clear my butterflies, Tazzy, you can start in with the blow torch.


Tazzygirl - Mar 8, 2007 7:27 am (#1849 of 2575)

SPEW! That'd make an interesting movie!

Whoo-hoo! **starts up the blow torch**


Liz Mann - Mar 9, 2007 12:26 am (#1850 of 2575)

Yes, because once the butterflies escape Voldemort gets them on his side promising that they will have plenty of victims. It'd be a great crossover fic.

The Many Uses of Toffee

Right then, now the toffee has started melting. Let’s channel it out into the healers' rest room. What's that ball floating out the door? It’s a quaffle. Quick, we need it for when the new Quidditch season starts. When does the season start? *looks in wizarding sporting callendar*.


Tazzygirl - Mar 12, 2007 11:29 pm (#1853 of 2575)

**stops blowtorching and admires handiwork** Did I unstick you, Azi?

**puts self-greasing gloves on and starts molding toffee into statues of St. Mungo's patients**

Yep, I think I'm out, thank you!

My butterflies turn evil? Surely not my poor innocent, sweet butterflies? They would never do anyone harm that didn't deserve it. Remember it was Rita Skitter that made those allegations. You don't believe the things you read in the Daily Prophet do you?

Oooo, Quidditch season, soon?!?!?!


Phelim Mcintyre - Mar 13, 2007 1:35 pm (#1856 of 2575)

I don't think your butterflies would turn evil. But I wouldn't put it past a mad scientist to manipulate genetics to make a monster in the future. And no, I don't believe what I read in the Prophet.

Great idea with the statues, Tazzygirl. We can use them as decoys during the quiddich season.


Viola Intonada - Mar 20, 2007 2:52 am (#1857 of 2575)

Alright, now that the Quidditch season is gearing up, I need to start practicing. I'm going to practice being keeper by keeping the staff out of our wing here. *goes to stand in doorway, assumes a menacing look on face*


Tazzygirl - Mar 20, 2007 8:00 am (#1858 of 2575)

**starts melting extra Toffee into Quidditch gear for the statues**


Viola Intonada - Mar 23, 2007 2:22 am (#1859 of 2575)

Oops, I'd better stop practicing Keeping her also, because everyone is staying away from here also.


Viola Intonada - Mar 25, 2007 2:52 am (#1860 of 2575)

And I obviously need to read my posts a bit closer before hitting the magic button!

Hello, is there anyone around? Anyone? *Goes looking through the hallways* I wonder if everyone got stuck in the toffee?


Tazzygirl - Mar 25, 2007 7:08 am (#1861 of 2575)

I'm here, Viola! Sorry, I was concentrating too much on creating the decoy Toffee quidditch player's protective gear. I think I'm done now!

**sits back to admire handiwork** Think these could throw the other teams off??


Liz Mann - Mar 25, 2007 5:29 pm (#1862 of 2575)

I'm here too. *waves*


azi - Mar 25, 2007 7:29 pm (#1863 of 2575)

I forgot what I was doing. I got hit by one of Lockhart's new memory charms that can penetrate walls.


Phelim Mcintyre - Mar 26, 2007 8:37 am (#1864 of 2575)

I must have been asleep for ages. Why didn't my clock wake me up? Oh yes the clocks changed at the weekend in the UK. Look, mine has changed into an apple.


Viola Intonada - Mar 29, 2007 1:42 am (#1865 of 2575)

Tazzy, your toffee decoys look absolutely amazing. I'm very impressed. Ooo, I've got an idea, Tazzy. You should back one look like Lockhart giving out autographs, that ought to scare the other teams.

Phelim, I hate it when that happens. I hope your clock changes into something that keeps time, soon.


Tazzygirl - Mar 29, 2007 4:51 am (#1866 of 2575)

OooH! What a great idea, Viola! **starts collecting up toffee pieces**

Oh dear, I hope Archie doesn't get into a bad mood - it was a crab apple!! (he, heh)

Does anyone have any potions or charms to help me cope with the dragging time between yesterday's release of the cover art and the release of the last book? It's driving me mad!


Viola Intonada - Apr 2, 2007 3:35 am (#1869 of 2575)

Viola Intonada - Apr 6, 2007 3:39 am (#1871 of 2575)

Wahoo! Chocolate! And just in time for Easter.

I have been busy hiding Easter Eggs and chocolate bunnies for everyone. I've been pretty devious in hiding them. You might want to start looking now, you might find them by Easter. hehehe


Viola Intonada - Apr 11, 2007 3:00 am (#1872 of 2575)

Oh my, I was a bit too devious and over enthusiastic in hiding the Easter eggs. I must have hidden all the rest of the inmates to.

Sorry all, I just received an owl that my FIL passed away. The healers are allowing me a short pass to the muggle world. See you next week.

I will try to get Gred and Forge back here to pick up the rest of the Easter eggs before anyone else gets stuck in one.

Gred and Forge have now cleared away the remaining Easter Eggs and have even replaced my hospital gown. As a way to say sorry for what happened they have given us this big plate of biscuits.


Liz Mann - Apr 29, 2007 12:31 am (#1891 of 2575)

Plate of biscuits? *looks nervously at it* Darn, I know it's dangerous to eat anything of Gred and Forge's but they just look soooo gooood... *drools*

Uh oh, careful Good Evans, you might get your jaws cemented together.

With the summer coming up, I say we should get the pool ready for use. It could use a bit of cleaning out. I think there are grindylows in there. *peers into pool*

Oooo, Sounds like a job for Professor Lockhart. We can tell him the grindylows want his autograph. That ought to get rid of them all.

Viola Intonada - May 14, 2007 8:34 pm (#1898 of 2575)

Wow! I didn't know that grindylow's could move so fast out of the water. It looks like the pool is clear. Now how do we get Lockhart out so that we can enjoy the pool?

Meanwhile, I will start making some lemonade.


Tazzygirl - May 14, 2007 8:47 pm (#1899 of 2575)

Isn't there a massive convention for witches and wizards over by Ottery St. Catchpole? I think I heard someone passing by and asking if Gilderoy Lockhardt was going to be there...


Viola Intonada - May 15, 2007 4:01 am (#1900 of 2575)

I didn't hear anyth.... Ah, yes, I heard they were looking forward to some autograph photos of Lockhart. (Speaking rather loudly toward the pool)

Viola Intonada - Jun 26, 2007 2:17 am (#1910 of 2575)

This calls for a birthday party!

*conjures up balloons, steamers and noise makers* I'll ask the house elves for some special food and a big cake. Any requests for flavors?

In 2003, Caitlin McCoy posted the lyrics to a certain song that I searched for relentlessly because I liked the lyrics but could never find, for she never told us who sang it or what it was called.

Today, I was buying Tori Amos songs off iTunes. I purchased that very song, randomly, and I didn't notice until I listened to the lyrics and they sparked a memory of several *headdesks* as each search failed.

I know, not important. But. I thought that it was cool.



Liz Mann - Jun 28, 2007 2:12 pm (#1912 of 2575)

Thank you, everyone! *wipes away tear*


Phelim Mcintyre - Jun 29, 2007 11:04 am (#1913 of 2575)

Liz - as we are both escaping from St Mungos to attend Sectus I will have to get you something there (if my money comes through). Look forward to your talk, and Immo's. Hope you come to my class on Friday as they don't clash.


pyrogrl - Jun 29, 2007 3:04 pm (#1914 of 2575)

. . .I want to go to Sectus.

Stupid "over eighteen" rule. I'm eighteen in November, but I guess that's not close enough, eh? *le sigh* And is this the last one, since Deathly Hallows is coming out soon? (IN, OH EM GEE, TWENTY-TWO DAYS?)


Liz Mann - Jun 29, 2007 3:12 pm (#1915 of 2575)

Well I heard that there's going to be another Sectus next year in Oxford, but I don't know if that's confirmed or not.

See you there, Phelim!


Phelim Mcintyre - Jun 29, 2007 5:47 pm (#1916 of 2575)

I think that there will be an Accio next year in Oxford and am too waiting for more news.


Phelim Mcintyre - Jul 6, 2007 11:31 am (#1917 of 2575)

Liz, Pyro - I have pasted the Accio 08 details on the Sectus thread on the main Forum. Hope to see you at Accio, Pyro (as I've already volunteered to help next year I will be there).

Liz - could you email me as your email isn't on your profile so I can organise a Potties get together that includes Good Evans? Thanks.


Pinky - Jul 9, 2007 7:58 pm (#1918 of 2575)

Pyro? You're turning 18? I must have been locked in a time-turner warp. Are you sure you're not still 13? Wow - time flies!

Anyway, I was just wondering if we were reserving rooms in the "Don't bother me I'm reading" ward? I was wondering if I could have my old room back - I'll only need it for the hours between midnight and dawn on the night-that-cannot-be-waited-for.


Liz Mann - Jul 9, 2007 11:58 pm (#1919 of 2575)

I want a room in the "Don't Bother Me I'm Reading" ward too!

I know, Pinky, doesn't time fly? I was only fifteen when I came on here and now I'm twenty-one.


pyrogrl - Jul 10, 2007 12:33 am (#1920 of 2575)

Four more months, baby. Just four. =]

And I would love my old room, please. It's fabulous; I'm getting my book at midnight, and I get to read it all weekend while I'm not working and we're vacationing in Jasper. =]


Tazzygirl - Jul 10, 2007 7:32 am (#1921 of 2575)

I want to reserve a room as well! **starts making a mental list of necessities: Chocolate frogs, blankets, hot chocolate, tea...***

I think I missed signing up for a room the last time. Not sure.

Maybe we should also have a 'Bereavement Ward' set up just in case.


Good Evans - Jul 14, 2007 7:15 pm (#1925 of 2575)

ooohh nooooo - I need therapy just thinking about it!


Tazzygirl - Jul 14, 2007 8:48 pm (#1926 of 2575)

I've got a very good friend who is a therapist. He's said he'd stay in the 'Bereavement Ward' for anyone wishing to have a session.


Phelim Mcintyre - Jul 15, 2007 3:22 pm (#1927 of 2575)

I hope the therapist isn't Lockhart. Not so much a session more a mind wash.


Viola Intonada - Jul 16, 2007 1:48 am (#1928 of 2575)

Well at least Lockhart can obliviate our memory and then we wouldn't remember that anyone died, or that the final book came out and we could enjoy it anew all over again.

I want a room in the "Do not disturb" ward!


azi - Jul 16, 2007 10:13 am (#1929 of 2575)

Only five more days?!?!?!?!? It's like waiting for Christmas when I was a little girl. I'm excited, but I'm not looking forward to the excitement to be over, if that makes any sense. I guess that's why I'm in St. Mungo's!

Be careful, guys, if the healers see you getting worked up they might come round giving us all calming potions.

I sure hope they can magic some food in here, or it’s going to be a long wait until the weekend. I'm glad I brought a few crates of canary creams in here with me. Anyone want one while they wait?


Phelim Mcintyre - Jul 18, 2007 2:09 pm (#1938 of 2575)

No thanks, I've managed to persuade the healers to let me out for the weekend. As long as I promise to use a decent hex on those people who shout out spoilers. Now what would be better bat-bogie or sectusempra?


Liz Mann - Jul 18, 2007 5:02 pm (#1939 of 2575)
Edited by Jul 18, 2007 10:04 am

Sectusempra would be tempting but you might get thrown in Azkaban for it (laws are laws) so better go with bat-bogie. Besides, the latter in public affords a certain amount of entertainment for the crowd and a decent amount of humiliation for the person who spoiled.

I too have been given leave to go to Sectus, so I will reserve a spot in the bereavement councelling room and see everyone on the other side. *hugs*


Viola Intonada - Jul 20, 2007 12:19 am (#1940 of 2575)

Should we spend the last night before the book comes out thinking of outragous endings to the book?

I've finished the book so where's my inflatable toy. I'd better not use the wand I got at Sectus until I've had Ollivander check it out properly. No canary creams around. Good. PARTY!!!!

**passes hot chocolate to everyone** It both frightens away the dementors and warms you up.

I think we should hold a wake for those who have passed on. I think they would have wanted it that way.

Phelim Mcintyre - Aug 1, 2007 10:41 am (#1961 of 2575)

Actually (as a qualified therapist) denial is the first step of bereavement. Then anger so I have brought along a large number of inflatable toys in the shape of death eaters and some large cushions for people to take their anger our on. If you use a spell that makes them blow up then they are enchanted to come back together.


azi - Aug 1, 2007 2:57 pm (#1962 of 2575)

Phelim Mcintyre - Aug 8, 2007 1:30 pm (#1968 of 2575)

Don't worry Good Evans, bereavement is a process of two steps forward - one step back. The inflatable death eaters will remain as long as people need them. I also have also arranged for a daily shipment of Honeydukes chocolate, cauldron cakes, pumpkin pasties, ice cream, chocolate frogs and other comfort food and drinks to be delivered. All have a special "no calorie" charm on them so you can eat and drink as much as you like without putting on weight.

Pyro - don't worry about Lucius and Draco, they are quite safe after their turnaround in Book 7 where family was more important than Voldemort.


Viola Intonada - Aug 8, 2007 1:48 pm (#1969 of 2575)

Sorry Tazzygirl, we'd like you to come especially as Liz and myself will be there but as your entrance to St Mungo's appear to be in Hawaii it may be a bit difficult.

Edit - have emailed Liz and Columbine Fairy. Good Evans, you make it sound as if Azi is going to come into St Pancras. If so Azi, you do realise that St Pancras was used as Kings Cross in the films don't you.

No, Archie, don't dive near me! ARGH! **gets covered in water** Hmph!


Phelim Mcintyre - Aug 9, 2007 12:08 pm (#1977 of 2575)

Azi - the interior on the films is King's Cross but the exterior is that of St Pancras (look at the wonderful red bricks on the front wall to see why). The bridge that Hagrid and Harry are on in Philosophers Stone is actually York station. But in the books JKR made a mistake, she was imagining Euston Station but wrote Kings Cross. (Yes I'm a geek so who cares - that's one of the reasons I'm in St Mungos.)


Good Evans - Aug 12, 2007 5:34 pm (#1978 of 2575)

I thought that Euston was used for the indoor shooting for "kings cross" in movies as KX does not have the stone arches? And yes it was because JKR got her stations muddled (how geeky are we???). The outside of St Pancras is the station that you see in the chamber of secrets. red brick with the corner towers, KX is a real dissapointment in comparison next door!!!

page 25 .... going really slowly, another chocolate frog please!! looking froward to the meet up though, ACCIO Kristina to join us!!!!


Liz Mann - Aug 12, 2007 9:48 pm (#1979 of 2575)

No, the interior was King's Cross, believe me you'll see it when we get there.

*throws Good Evans another chocolate frog*


azi - Aug 13, 2007 5:29 pm (#1980 of 2575)

The bridge is seriously York (Is there a bridge in the films? LOL)? I think this shows that I've only seen two of the movies once - I would have recognised it instantly otherwise!

**Is feeling a bit better** I may finally be reaching acceptance. **reads sad part again** Maybe not. **cries into Archies fur**


Phelim Mcintyre - Aug 13, 2007 7:13 pm (#1981 of 2575)

Yes Azi there is a bridge in the first film. The scene where Hagrid gives Harry his ticket for the Hogwarts Express. Hogsmead station is of course (in the film) not in Scotland. It’s the one at the village used for Heartbeat.


Good Evans - Aug 14, 2007 7:22 pm (#1982 of 2575)

Good Evans, Azi, Liz Mann (and possibly Columbine Fairy) all set for the 30th when we confound the healers and get out into London?

As to the station used for the film, I always thought it was actually St Pancras used for both the interior and exterior (Euston doesn't have stone arches) but all the sites on the web say Kings Cross.

But anyway. See you Thursday (I hope).

Luckily, azi, the weather report says good weather right up until Friday, so presuming they are correct (which is, of course, not guaranteed ) we should be set. Are we meeting at King's Cross? And if so where? It would be easiest to meet in the atrium by the arrivals board. It's the easiest part to get to when you get out of the underground because the door is right there. We should also all wear something visibly HP so that we can recognise each other.

*practices confundus charm on Phelim* Did it work?


azi - Aug 27, 2007 12:34 pm (#1989 of 2575)

Yey! **fingers crossed for good weather** So long as I get vague directions to where we're meeting it's fine anywhere.

**makes it sunny and sits on inflatable duck, drinking elderflower cordial**

Ooo Archie's blowing giant bubbles! **runs to catch them**


Phelim Mcintyre - Aug 27, 2007 5:26 pm (#1990 of 2575)

Um, did what work? What are we talking about?


Good Evans - Aug 27, 2007 6:17 pm (#1991 of 2575)

Liz - we suggested platform 9 3/4 (where the trolly is shoved in to the wall) - it seemed most appropriate.

never mind Phelim **pats on head**

**starts to knit replacement "me" to put in my bed during the "grand day out" **


Tazzygirl - Aug 28, 2007 3:18 am (#1992 of 2575)

Don't worry, everyone. I'll make sure to keep the healers (the ones that stuck out the revolt) so busy they won't even think to look for you.


Liz Mann - Aug 28, 2007 3:15 pm (#1993 of 2575)

What will you do to distract them?


Phelim Mcintyre - Aug 29, 2007 8:30 am (#1994 of 2575)

Yes, we were talking about the get together tomorrow. Hope to be there but the galleons are a bit tight at the moment. But if not will try and apparate. Will get there somehow.


Phelim Mcintyre - Aug 29, 2007 4:09 pm (#1995 of 2575)
Edited by Aug 29, 2007 9:10 am

Having persuaded a healer to go to Gringotts and change some galleons into Muggle money I will be there. See you at Platform 9 3/4 at 10.50.

Oh yes, the healer thinks I want to post the money to a Muggle relative for their birthday.


Tazzygirl - Aug 29, 2007 7:51 pm (#1996 of 2575)

I was thinking of pulling a stunt out of Fred and George's book...

Or should I just say George now...


Good Evans - Aug 29, 2007 8:03 pm (#1997 of 2575)

boo hoo - thanks Kristina, I was making progress!!!!!! one step forward and two steps back!

We had a nice long discussion about the rest of you.

had a lovely day, but now have sore feet from walking, **curls up in bed acting all innocent! **

**waves sleepily to Liz, Phelim and Azi, thanks for making it a lovely day**


Tazzygirl - Aug 30, 2007 9:05 pm (#2000 of 2575)

Be careful getting back in- there might be some spare fireworks going off still. *evilgrin*

Hope you all had a great time together!!

I was making progress too, Julie. Then I remembered what happened to Fred.

*Creeps in* Hi everyone. I'm back. After you left Azi and myself went up to Harrods. Had a great time and saw proper Movie wands for sale (but no toy wands or HP Lego). I want a movie wand.

**ducks duck-shaped firework and crawls into bed**

Twas a lovely day indeedy! **waves** I was up at 5.30am again this morning though. **snoozes with Archie lying on the end of the bed**

(Thankyou Phelim for helping me navigate the Tube to get back to the station! I don't know how these muggles cope without apparition. )

I was making progress too, but then, against my better judgement, I looked at a fanart of Tonks crying over Remus' body. Bellatrix was standing behind her about to was sad.

Edit - you forgot to mention puppet-Hedwig! Very sweet.


Phelim Mcintyre - Aug 31, 2007 11:18 am (#2003 of 2575)

Oh yes, puppet Hedwig (Snowy Owl) in Hamleys, with a head that went round. I want that as well.


Good Evans - Aug 31, 2007 2:21 pm (#2004 of 2575)

Wakes up all refreshed and picks up book to finish off, page 432...

oooohhhh wish I had stayed for a trip to Hamleys / Harrods - I want a movie wand too!!! ah well, if I make it to Accio I will bring my poor excuse for a wand and you will agree that I need a new one!! still, it works just fine.

fireworks?? sounds like someone has tripped some Tazzy!!!


Liz Mann - Aug 31, 2007 8:26 pm (#2005 of 2575)

I have three wands myself. *smug grin* I transfigured two of them into pencils to hide them from the healers, but then I had nothing with which to transfigure the third one, so I've hidden it behind a panal I dug into my wall.


Phelim Mcintyre - Sep 1, 2007 7:02 pm (#2006 of 2575)

Um it wasn't Harrods, it was Hamleys. Ooops. But I was in London today. I didn't get up to Kings Cross but there was no obvious signs of wizards.

Liz - only three wands!!! Most of mine have charms on them to make them look like chopsticks. I do like, and cook, oriental food.


Liz Mann - Sep 2, 2007 12:35 am (#2007 of 2575)

Hamleys is even more tempting.


Liz Mann - Sep 2, 2007 9:43 pm (#2008 of 2575)

The healers have been granted leave for a couple of weeks to go to Exeter and Torquay (both in Devon), so I'll see you all after the 16th. *waves*


Phelim Mcintyre - Sep 4, 2007 9:54 am (#2009 of 2575)

Alas, the clouds are back, and it's getting nippy at nights...

Early Bonfire Night, anyone? I want bonfire toffee!

**sneaks into the healer's staff room to make toffee**

Hope you had a nice holiday, Liz! Oh, and I'm not imagining you as blonde anymore. Funny that, eh?


Liz Mann - Sep 14, 2007 10:46 pm (#2014 of 2575)

Hee hee! Yes, it was a great holiday. I'm knackered.


Phelim Mcintyre - Sep 21, 2007 5:18 pm (#2015 of 2575)

It been raining today, and I had an appointment with the Gringotts goblins about my bank account. Talk about stressful, at least my dress robes impressed them.


azi - Sep 21, 2007 7:03 pm (#2016 of 2575)

**performs drying charms** Horrible weather indeedy!

**gets splattered by Archie as he shakes his fur dry** Bleugh!

I think we should decorate the ward in bright colours so it feels like it's still summer.


Liz Mann - Sep 21, 2007 7:19 pm (#2017 of 2575)

Better than that - we now have an indooor spa complex, complete with pool, hot tubs and sauna. So we don't have to wait for the good weather to swim.


azi - Sep 21, 2007 8:20 pm (#2018 of 2575)

Tazzygirl - 26 degree celcius. I'm not sure it actually got as hot as that here in the UK this year.

*appears in straight jacket being led by healers* I'm being transferred from the Obsessive Compulsive Quidditch Disorder ward to the Fanfic Obsessed Ward. They say I can keep my waterbed though.


azi - Oct 2, 2007 12:52 pm (#2024 of 2575)

Ooo, have fun reading your fanfics Liz!

I'm not sure which ward I'm in...I think I transferred from the Leprechaun Ward a while ago. What to is anybody's guess.

Well, it's dull and cloudy outside so I think I'll snuggle next to the fire in the healer's staffroom and drink hot chocolate. A Disillusionment Charm will ensure they don't spot me.


Liz Mann - Oct 3, 2007 8:23 pm (#2025 of 2575)

Why go to the Healer's staffroom? There's a side room off the spa with a fireplace bigger than the healers', and with lots of squashy armchairs and a huge faux-sheepskin rug in front of the fire. And a hot chocolate maker machine. And biscuits (cookies to the Americans). And a shelf full of books.

(I'm actually shivering as I write this and wishing I had such a room.)


azi - Oct 3, 2007 9:54 pm (#2026 of 2575)

If I'm in the Healer's staffroom I can quietly listen in on their conversations.


I think they're thinking of changing our medicine.

*Warming charms!*


Liz Mann - Oct 4, 2007 8:37 pm (#2027 of 2575)

Changing our medicine? Thank goodness you were listening in, azi!

*spreads the word not to eat anything given to us by the Healers*


Tazzygirl - Oct 11, 2007 5:25 am (#2028 of 2575)

I think we need to stop eating all the different types of Jello again...


John Bumbledore - Oct 11, 2007 2:09 pm (#2029 of 2575)

But chocolate is always good to eat. Look! There is a hunk of it behind the bookshelves... if I could just reach it there might be enought to share...


Good Evans - Oct 14, 2007 2:33 pm (#2030 of 2575)

mmmm hot chocolate **drifts through to the sideroom, and snuggles in armchair **


azi - Oct 14, 2007 3:12 pm (#2031 of 2575)

Ooo, there's chocolate behind the book shelves?

**eats chocolate**

Ack, I'm now a giant blueberry.


Phelim Mcintyre - Oct 14, 2007 3:28 pm (#2032 of 2575)

Oh no, more WWW food. I hope it wears of soon.


Liz Mann - Oct 15, 2007 12:45 am (#2033 of 2575)

Or maybe it's not WWW - maybe Mr Wonka has something to do with it.


azi - Oct 16, 2007 11:50 am (#2034 of 2575)

Ooo, I did go on the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory ride at Alton Towers the other day. Archie distracted the healers for me by throwing a 24 hour 'firework display' using WWW products.

Be careful, there may be some still roaming around...


Liz Mann - Oct 20, 2007 10:58 pm (#2035 of 2575)

Let's have a Hallowe'en party!


Phelim Mcintyre - Oct 21, 2007 12:55 pm (#2036 of 2575)

I'm sticking a “no trick or treat” poster up next to my bed. The writing is so small that people will have to come up so close to read it they will step on the trap door I have put in the floor, which via a magical slide will send them into the cupboard where I have pumpkin pasties and other treats to help them recover from the trick.


pyrogrl - Oct 24, 2007 2:20 am (#2037 of 2575)

Oh, a costume party? I'm sticking sponges all over me. I dare you to guess my costume. =]

Phelim Mcintyre - Oct 26, 2007 5:13 pm (#2040 of 2575)

I've just heard the healers saying they have put the new medecine in the pumpkin pasties and pumpkin juice they are giving us for Hallowe'en. Definate trick but no treat!


Liz Mann - Nov 1, 2007 9:24 pm (#2041 of 2575)

Well, Hallowe'en is over... now it's time to prepare for Christmas. (Actually, the Americans have Thanksgiving first. When exactly is it?)

You're forgetting Bonfire Night!

**makes bonfire toffee, while making parkin, while dancing to “A Mess of Blues” by Elvis Presley**

Anyone want to build the bonfire and get the fireworks out? There should be some Weasley ones somewhere...

Which reminds me of the tradition 'penny for the guy?' No one does that anymore. In fact, most people don't burn effigies...

***coughing and spluttering, shaking snow out of hair***

I see. That's how you want to play it?

Locomotor friohomenum!!

***snowman trots over to Potteraholic, lifts her into the air, and plunges her feet first into a snow pile***

Ha Ha!!

***smirks as she sees azi hiding in an igloo***

You're next, azi!!


Good Evans - Nov 30, 2007 8:34 am (#2092 of 2575)

**sends barrage of snowballs at Patpat, then cast disillusionment charm on self to "blend in with background". ** forgets to stop whistling loudly and innocently though!


azi - Nov 30, 2007 3:31 pm (#2093 of 2575)

**runs around trying to hide in a corner** Igloos don't have corners!

**runs with her hands over her head in search of new shelter**


Potteraholic - Nov 30, 2007 5:18 pm (#2094 of 2575)

***huffing and puffing out of of the snow pile the snow wizard bewitched by PatPat so ungraciously plunged her into*** Things are getting too dangerous out here for the likes of me. I think it’s time for some hot chocolate with a dollop of cream, and maybe just a dash of Ogden’s, just for medicinal purposes, of course, to warm myself up.

***toodles off back inside, muttering*** That PatPat should be careful, though. Just when she least expects it – ZAP!


Liz Mann - Nov 30, 2007 6:17 pm (#2095 of 2575)

*watches from the sidelines, throughly entertained by the others' antics*


PatPat - Nov 30, 2007 10:49 pm (#2096 of 2575)

*Snowman is attracted by Good Evans' whistling and rushes over, grabbing her in big (cold) bear hug.*

***bewitches snowball into snow owl which flies overhead dropping snowballs on azi and Liz Mann***

Ha Ha! Liz thought she was safe on the sidelines! At least I am safe from Potteraholic!


Liz Mann - Dec 1, 2007 2:16 am (#2097 of 2575)

I've come prepared. *puts up umbrella to protect self from snowballs* Ha!


Potteraholic - Dec 1, 2007 12:35 pm (#2098 of 2575)

Mmmm, that was a lovely cuppa hot chocolate. ***ambles over to the window and sees PatPat dropping snowballs on azi and Liz Mann***

That PatPat is a feisty one. Ha, ha, Liz’s umbrella will foil PatPat’s plans!

I know! ***opens the window and shouts*** Engorgio incrementa! ***Liz’s umbrella gets a bit bigger*** Quick, azi! Get under the umbrella! Yay! It worked! Time for a nap, I think. All this playing and that lovely cuppa has made me a wee bit tired. ***toodles off to the common room and the comfy couch by the fire***


PatPat - Dec 1, 2007 7:35 pm (#2099 of 2575)

That sneak, Potteraholic!

***slinks away, defeated, for some hot chocolate with whipped cream while watching azi and Liz huddling under enormous umbrella***

I'll get them later!


Liz Mann - Dec 1, 2007 9:31 pm (#2100 of 2575)

*peaks out from behind umbrella* I think PatPat's gone, azi. *puts umbrella down*

I'm nearly frozen. Think I'll go inside, change into my pjs and fuzzy slippers and sit by the fire with some hot chocolate. *goes inside, still keeping a wary eye out for PatPat*

***waking up from nap in bedroom (decided that common room would not be the safest place for a nap after all with PatPat sure to come in and warm up soon)***

Oh, that was a lovely nap. It seems very quiet outside. ***ambles over to the window and sees azi outside, but no Liz and PatPat*** Hmmm... I wonder where everyone is? I wonder if anyone would be interested in a friendly game checkers?

***wanders off to the common room to see who's there***


Good Evans - Dec 2, 2007 3:56 pm (#2102 of 2575)

**wrestles away from snowman, takes a staggering step and slips through a rabbit hole in the ground, finds self under a bed in the isolation ward!!!

crawls out, stands up and scratches head** so in to snow covered land thorugh wardrobe and back out through isolation ward, spooky!!

**ambles off to find hot chocolate and my own bed for a sleep** that snow was great fun, but tiring!


Liz Mann - Dec 2, 2007 5:32 pm (#2103 of 2575)

I'll play a game with you, PAH, but how about the Harry Potter trivia board game instead of checkers?


Potteraholic - Dec 3, 2007 11:51 am (#2104 of 2575)

***wandered back to her room on the way to the common room to get her knitting, just in case there was no one to play with***

***sees Liz and asks about playing a friendly game of checkers*** The Harry Potter trivia board game, you say? I'm so forgetful these days, I don't know how I'll do, but I'll give it a try. Let me just put my knitting away. I'll be right back.

***toodling off back to her room, calling over her shoulder*** Start setting up the board, Liz, I'll be back in a minute! I think I have a packet of Bernie Botts's beans in my trunk that will make a good snack while we're playing.

***continues to toodle off, keeping an eye out for PatPat***


azi - Dec 3, 2007 12:09 pm (#2105 of 2575)

**tumbles from the ceiling**

Ooo er, that was fun, but now I'm cooooold!

**snuggles up to Archie with hot chocolate covered with mini marshmallows and cream. (On a side note, do any UK forumers know where I can get mini marshmallows from? I can never find them!)


Good Evans - Dec 3, 2007 1:38 pm (#2106 of 2575)

Tesco Azi - the home baking aisle! I think supercook is a brand name!!!!

**snuggles up in bed with hot chocolate, and tosses Azi a bag of minimarshmallows**


Puck - Dec 3, 2007 3:28 pm (#2107 of 2575)

**wanders in tentatively sits on a comfy chair**

My first visit to St. Mungos. I kept hearing you all talk about it, and decided to poke my head in.

**pulls out some quilting and waits quietly**


azi - Dec 3, 2007 4:00 pm (#2108 of 2575)

I've looked in the nearest Tesco to me. I'll keep an eye out!

**Passes Puck some marshmallows and hot chocolate**

Whatever you do, don't accept any food from the healers or Lockhart...


Liz Mann - Dec 3, 2007 4:59 pm (#2109 of 2575)

Especially the jello! They put our medication in it, they're trying to turn us sane.

*sets up Trivia Game board and waits for PAH*


Puck - Dec 3, 2007 5:11 pm (#2110 of 2575)

**sips hot chocolate**

Thanks, Azi. Delicious. Here, have snickerdoodle. Anyone else want one? I promise, they are 100% drug free. I like you all insane.

**wondering what Lockhart puts in food, if the healers use it to give out meds**


Good Evans - Dec 3, 2007 9:34 pm (#2111 of 2575)

grab a bed Puck - you seem to fit in so well!!!!

**decides more exercise is now due and wanders off to the pool, belly flops in and splashes water near to the trivia board!! ** whoops **casts puddle drying charm while Liz's head is in the box**


Potteraholic - Dec 4, 2007 1:00 am (#2112 of 2575)

(As my alter ago, a non-Mungo's resident: Is it just me, or are our posts (#2108 to #2110) looking narrower and narrower on the screen? I'm using Firefox. I'm wondering if it has anything to do with using a *space at the start of a new line? I'm worried that the width of our posts will dwindle down to nothing! I'm going to wait for one of you to respond, YAY or NAY, then I'll post a message on the 'Questions for the Hosts' thread. Thanks!)

***climbs up on the high dive wondering how far the water will splash***

Can I get Liz and PAH wet?

***waves to azi and Puck from the edge of the diving board***

Edited only to see what was up with the weirdness PAH was talking about...


shepherdess - Dec 4, 2007 1:06 am (#2114 of 2575)

Potteraholic, if you're talking about what I think, I've experienced that phenomenon on occasion. It ends after a few posts. If it's not what I'm thinking, then I personally don't know anything about it.


Liz Mann - Dec 4, 2007 1:36 am (#2115 of 2575)

*casts impervius on self and the trivia board to protect from imminant splash from PatPat*

The Trivia Board is set up. Who else wants to play?


Potteraholic - Dec 4, 2007 1:53 am (#2116 of 2575)

(Still PAH's alter ego here: Narrow post problem is still happening after all. Am going to post a message to Hosts. Have never seen this particular problem before.)

Nice one, Liz! That Impervious spell should do the trick. So there, PatPat ***thumbs nose at PatPat*** Look how beautifully the the trivia board is set! Thanks again, Liz. I did find a nice, big packet of Every Flavor beans for our refreshment. Shepherdess, would you be interested in a friendly game of trivia while you're here? If so, please start the game with Liz and I'll join in later, if that's okay.

***toddles off and calls over her shoulder to them both*** I must see to something first. See you soon.


Potteraholic - Dec 4, 2007 11:17 am (#2117 of 2575)

Liz, I'm back! Ready for that game of HP trivia? Remember, my memory's not what it used to be! Hopefully some others will join us, even that PatPat? ***waves white hanky***


Potteraholic - Dec 4, 2007 12:00 pm (#2118 of 2575)

(PAH’s alter ego, again. Eek! My 3rd message in a row! I really must be mad! In my defense, I did try to edit my previous post, but was timed out!)

Liz, if you don’t mind, I’m going to go back to my room and get my knitting. Seeing Puck with her quilting puts me in the mind to get more work done on my scarf. I’ve only done a wee bit so far! ***wanders off to her room to pick up said scarf***

Okay, now I’m back for good! Let’s play!


Puck - Dec 4, 2007 2:05 pm (#2119 of 2575)

I've never been great at HP trivia. I can never remember all those minute details like what color robes Lockart was wearing his first class.

Oooh, we have a pool! Once I finish edging this quilt, I may go for a swim. Hmm, or perhaps I can manage to bewitch the needle and thread and go for a swim while it finishes itself!

**casts sewing charm then runs in direction of the pool



azi - Dec 4, 2007 7:35 pm (#2120 of 2575)

**sits in front of fan heater to keep warm** I like to stay warm and dry.

Eurgh, I have St Mungo's Hospital School Muggle Studies coursework to be doing! Anyone know anything about European muggle nature conservation programmes?

**procrastinates and sits with Liz to play trivia**

**waves to PatPat and tells her not to look down**

(Sometimes I get the narrower thing. It just happens. I only use Firefox (except for those darned programmes which refuse to download without IE). Usually, if you go to another thread it'll be fine for me.)


PatPat - Dec 5, 2007 1:47 am (#2121 of 2575)

**suddenly realizing why it's called the high dive. Closes eyes and leaps.***


***Conjures parachute and floats gently into the pool, landing softly without much splash.***

I think I've had enough excitement for today! Can I join in the trivia game?


Liz Mann - Dec 5, 2007 10:47 am (#2122 of 2575)

Yes, you can PatPat. But you should know I'm still under Impervius.


Potteraholic - Dec 5, 2007 12:17 pm (#2123 of 2575)

***relieved that PatPat used the Chutensia! spell***

Okay, Liz! Now that PatPat is joining us, it looks like we have a good number of players for our trivia game. So... let’s hear the first question! ***secretly hopes it’s not too hard***

(Trying out Finn's tip to see if my post remains unindented with no pesky • [bullet point] showing up!) It worked!


Liz Mann - Dec 5, 2007 3:17 pm (#2124 of 2575)

(I actually have the trivia game and have set up the board but have lost the instructions so I've turned it into a very basic game.)

Right, first of all everyone has to pick which colour Sorting Hat they want to use as their counter - white, silver, black, gold, grey or bronze. Please remember your colour and post it with each move or answer. You have to correctly answer questions in order to move around the board. When you answer a question (and don't cheat!) I'll roll the dice and move you that many spaces around the board. First person to get back to the beginning wins.

Okay, so all players pick their Sorting Hat counter. Instead of playing myself, I'll be the person who moves the counters, rolls the dice and asks the questions.


Puck - Dec 5, 2007 10:02 pm (#2125 of 2575)

**climbs out of pool and grabs a towel**

Ohh, can I play? I'd like silver, please.


azi - Dec 5, 2007 10:19 pm (#2126 of 2575)

I'll go with Black.

**drinks a smoothie, while snuggling with Archie** Must get me vitamins.


Potteraholic - Dec 5, 2007 10:44 pm (#2127 of 2575)

***knit two, purl three***

I'd like to be blue please. ***pulling a face after having just eaten a brussel sprout flavored Bernie Bott's bean***


Liz Mann - Dec 5, 2007 11:00 pm (#2128 of 2575)

There isn't a blue one. There is white, gold, grey and bronze left.


Potteraholic - Dec 6, 2007 12:00 am (#2129 of 2575)

Alrighty, then. I'd like the gold piece, please.


PatPat - Dec 6, 2007 1:56 am (#2130 of 2575)

I'll take grey please!

***Happy that no one is holding a grudge for snowball pranks earlier. Sips tea. Finds pack of Droobles Best Blowing gum and offers it around***

Thanks for the tip about the *, Finn. I was wondering about that!


Puck - Dec 6, 2007 2:01 am (#2131 of 2575)

**takes a pices of gum**

Thanks, Patpat!


Potteraholic - Dec 6, 2007 2:38 am (#2132 of 2575)

Okay, 2 more pieces left, bronze and white. Any more folks, interested in playing the game? ***too nervous to knit while awaiting the first question; have dropped many stitches as a result!***

***begins chewing fingernails*** ***decides a piece of PatPat's chewing gum would be a better idea*** Don't mind if I do, PatPat. Thanks!


Puck - Dec 6, 2007 1:10 pm (#2133 of 2575)

Bit of a jumpy little ferret, aren't you, PAH?


Liz Mann - Dec 6, 2007 1:43 pm (#2134 of 2575)

Okay then, everyone will take their turns in the order that they selected their counter, which means that the order is Puck first, then Azi, then PAH, then PatPat.

So Puck, your question first. You need to get it right (no referring to the books or the Lexicon! And no help from anyone else.) in order to move forward from the start position. All questions refer to book one.

Question: What lesson has Harry Potter been anticipating above all others?


Puck - Dec 6, 2007 5:55 pm (#2135 of 2575)

My color is silver, and I say Flying/riding a broomstick.


Liz Mann - Dec 6, 2007 10:50 pm (#2136 of 2575)

Correct. I rolled the dice and got a four so I have moved you forward four squares.

Azi, your turn next. Your question: What are first year Hogwarts students forbidden to have on school property?


Potteraholic - Dec 7, 2007 1:12 am (#2137 of 2575)

Woo hoo, Puck! Nice way to start the game!

***wishing I had Puck's question because I actually knew the answer to it***

And Puck, you'd be a jumpy little ferret, too, if you got the kind of scores I do on the HP trivia thread over on the other forum!

***picks up knitting and begins to pick up all dropped stitches***


azi - Dec 7, 2007 11:11 am (#2138 of 2575)

Erm, a broomstick?

I am the Black counter.

I didn't know the answer to Puck's question, lol! Maybe I need to read the books again...


Potteraholic - Dec 7, 2007 11:22 am (#2139 of 2575)


I would have said broom, too! ***crossing fingers and hoping my question is about something I remember***


PatPat - Dec 7, 2007 11:41 am (#2140 of 2575)

I think broomstick is right, azi. I just finished re-reading PS and Harry had to hide his broomstick from the other first years because they weren't supposed to have one. He was given special permission. I've known the last two questions and now I'm sure mine will be one I don't know!


Liz Mann - Dec 7, 2007 12:37 pm (#2141 of 2575)

Yes, broom is correct! I rolled a two for you so you've moved two spaces.

PAH, let's put you out of your misery. Your question: What is the longest known Quidditch game ever played?


Puck - Dec 7, 2007 1:40 pm (#2142 of 2575)

**jumps up and down, almost knocking over the board**

Alright, I actually knew the answer!

Oh, that's a tough one, PAH.

PAH, I played a few rounds of Trivia on the other forum, and failed quite miserably. I felt good if I managed to score a four or five.

Glad I changed my answer, I had typed DADA when something clicked in my memory, and I quickly deleted it before posting.

Liz, are these questions from an actual game, or are you making them up?


Liz Mann - Dec 7, 2007 9:43 pm (#2143 of 2575)

They're actually from the game. Some of them will probably be ridiculously easy.


Potteraholic - Dec 8, 2007 12:54 am (#2144 of 2575)

PAH here, and my piece is gold. Oh great! A question that I don't know the answer to. Well, I know part of it, so I might as well say what I know so that I don't look like a complete dunderhead! I think the longest match was 3 months long, but I have no idea who the teams who played in it were. Oh well!


Liz Mann - Dec 8, 2007 1:06 am (#2145 of 2575)

The duration of the game was what was required, and you got it right! I rolled a six for you, so you're the furthest round the board at the moment.

PatPat, your turn now: Where within Hogwarts does Harry Potter discover the Mirror of Erised? (Type of room and floor.)


Potteraholic - Dec 8, 2007 1:22 am (#2146 of 2575)

***picking self up after having being knocked over by a feather*** What?!? You mean, I actually got that right??? Woah... BTW, who were the teams involved? Was it a World Cup Quidditch match or another game?


Liz Mann - Dec 8, 2007 1:49 am (#2147 of 2575)

I don't think we know. Quidditch Through The Ages says that the longest match was six months, not three (though the first book must have said three because the question card says that is the answer), and that it happened on Bodmin Moor in 1884. It doesn't say what teams it was though.


PatPat - Dec 8, 2007 1:54 am (#2148 of 2575)

My color is grey

AARRGGHHH!! I knew it. I've known every answer and now this one I'm not sure of. I know he found it in an abandoned classroom, but the floor?? Who knows what floor anything is on in these books. They're always moving! I just read this book as I said and I remember something about it being near the library and Harry thought he was five floors above the kitchens. But does that mean fifth floor?? ***sigh*** I'll go with that.

***Takes another piece of Droobles Best Blowing gum, sure her answer is wrong.***


Potteraholic - Dec 8, 2007 1:33 pm (#2149 of 2575)

Thanks for checking that, Liz. And PatPat, I agree, tough question. I think you're right about the abandoned classroom, and have no clue about the floor. But your reasoning seems pretty logical to me! ***crosses fingers that PatPat gets the right answer ***


PatPat - Dec 8, 2007 3:21 pm (#2150 of 2575)

Thanks, PAH! And you find the best smilies! Is that one from the site you sent me last time or is this a different one?

Hey PatPat! I don't remember which site I sent you, but this is the code for this smiley: < img src= > with no spaces after and before the < >. Can you figure out the website from that?

***have to go and get more yarn, since nerves have disappeared due to notification of correct answer and knitting speed and accuracy have resumed*** See you in a bit!


PatPat - Dec 8, 2007 7:20 pm (#2152 of 2575)

Yeah, that's the same web site you sent me! Thanks!

***Stuffs yet another piece of Droobles in mouth, waiting nervously to find out if her answer was right.***


Liz Mann - Dec 8, 2007 9:44 pm (#2153 of 2575)

You're absolutely right, PatPat! I rolled a three for you.

Okay, it's Puck's turn again. Question: To stop the arrival of the Hogwarts letters, Uncle Vernon boards up the cracks in front of the front and back doors. What does he do while doing this?


Puck - Dec 8, 2007 9:58 pm (#2154 of 2575)

Ummmm, bangs his fingers with the hammer? I know he was going on about "no more letters", but that doesn't seem like what you are looking for.

**paces around room while waiting**

Wasn't Azi playing?

Oh, I'm silver.


Potteraholic - Dec 9, 2007 2:26 am (#2155 of 2575)


That’s what I thought it was, too. And it’s azi’s turn next. Here’s the playing order, with number of turns taken. (Thought it might help, Liz. Not meaning to step on any toes! )

Puck = silver (2) azi = black (1) Potteraholic = gold (1) PatPat = grey (1)


PatPat - Dec 9, 2007 2:56 am (#2156 of 2575)

***Gets up after being knocked over by PAH's feather***

That was right??!!! Whoa.

PAH, you have to spell "grey" as "gray" in order to get grey instead of green. So, < font color=gray>. I made the same mistake the first time.


Puck - Dec 9, 2007 3:34 am (#2157 of 2575)

Thanks, PAH. I forgot Azi had taken a turn! I was thinking she was next.

**stops pacing and picks up quilting again**


Potteraholic - Dec 9, 2007 9:27 am (#2158 of 2575)


Thanks for the tip; the thing is, the color for 'grey' is spelled with an 'a' and shows up as such on my screen. Am going to try it spelled the other way and eager to see the difference!

TEST: gray < font color=gray > grey < font color=grey > What happens? Edited to add: It shows up as the same color on my screen. Go figure!

Puck = silver 2 azi = black 1 Potteraholic = gold 1 PatPat = grey 1

***wondering why the people who made the game didn't use some more Hogwarts school colors for the pieces, like: Ravenclaw blue, or Slytherin green, or Gryffindor red? They got a color close to the Hufflepuff yellow, so why not the other houses, too? Curious!***


azi - Dec 9, 2007 12:06 pm (#2159 of 2575)

They are very odd colours! Maybe they didn't want all the kids to be fighting over red for Gryffindor?

**runs around with Archie to keep warm** I seem to spend my life eternally cold...**sigh**


PatPat - Dec 9, 2007 3:51 pm (#2160 of 2575)

I was wondering the same thing, PAH! They chose very strange colors. Like where on earth did grey come from? Maybe we should write the makers of the game.

So, wait a sec. Your screen shows "gray" and "grey" as the same? Are they both grey? or green? Because I see green when you used the spelling "grey" and grey when you used the spelling "gray". Weird.

***sits down to sip some tea in utter confusion***


Potteraholic - Dec 9, 2007 5:26 pm (#2161 of 2575)


My screen, both on my Mac laptop and my school desktop Mac, show 'gray' and 'grey' as either the same color or similar shades of grey. (If ever there was a time when I didn't try to make a pun, this was it! ) Not a shade of green in sight! Weird indeed!

***rushing off to man 'Spin Art' table at school Holiday Fair before I get in trouble for being late***


PatPat - Dec 9, 2007 7:54 pm (#2162 of 2575)

OK, very very weird. Is anyone else seeing green for the "grey" spelling? Or is it just me?

EDIT: Maybe it's a MAC vs. PC thing? Anyone else have a PC?


Liz Mann - Dec 9, 2007 10:05 pm (#2163 of 2575)

Oh dear, Puck, I'm afraid you're wrong. He was humming Tiptoe Through the Tulips.

Azi, your second turn. Question: Who was the first student to be sorted into Gryffindor?


PatPat - Dec 10, 2007 12:15 am (#2164 of 2575)

Wow, these last couple have been tough! Good luck, azi!


Potteraholic - Dec 10, 2007 3:05 am (#2165 of 2575)

Player / # of Turns update:
Puck = silver 2 azi = black 2 Potteraholic = gold 1 PatPat = grey 1

Puck, azi, and PatPat, I was wondering, if other folks visit St.Mungo's and would like to have something to do while they're here, could they join in the game? How would you feel about playing in groups of two, as long as 4 more people stopped by? What do you all think?

***chasing down an errant ball of yarn that's rolling down St. Mungo's sloping floor*** They certainly don't keep this place up, do they? ***grumbling while reaching under the lamp table for the now dusty ball of yarn***

Edited to add: Puck, I notice you have a bullet point (•) at the start of your post, which intends your whole post, and the ones after it (I think). I think this happens if there's no space in front of the first asterisk. if you have time, could you put in a space at the beginning of the first line and see what happens? Or you could try what Finn suggested in another thread: start the first line with a < b >< /b > (no spaces). Just a friendly suggestion.


Puck - Dec 10, 2007 3:06 am (#2166 of 2575)

* *Slaps self on forehead**

I see the green-colored grey on my screen as well.

**crawls onto floor to help PAH catch the ball of yarn**

Puck, in my previous post, #2165, I just realized that I typed 'intends' when I meant indents.

Again, the request about formatting in my previous post is just a friendly suggestion; I guess it's the teacher in me. Before the HPLF, I had no idea what HTML code was. Now, I think I am s-l-o-w-l-y getting the hang of it!


PatPat - Dec 10, 2007 2:58 pm (#2168 of 2575)

Thanks, Puck. Glad it's not just me! Do you have a PC or a Mac? I'm wondering if the Mac shows the colors better, being that they are known for graphics and stuff!

***Watches PAH and Puck chase down the ball of yarn. Produces knitting needle***

I have no problem with others joining in, PAH! The more, the merrier!


azi - Dec 10, 2007 3:40 pm (#2169 of 2575)

Black- Hannah Abbot?

**sits on hands to keep them warm** I need a fire. **whips out wand** Ooo, it's green.

BTW, I see grey with both spellings. Is it an IE/Firefox issue again?


Puck - Dec 10, 2007 3:54 pm (#2170 of 2575)

Psst, Azi, read the question more carefully. I have a PC, Patpat. I haven't tried on my laptop, that might make a difference, as well. That screen isn't as clear.

I did put several spaces before that post, but still got the bullet point. Think I have to hit enter a few times first for it to work.

***stands up comepletely tangled in the yarn, no longer in ball form***

edit, yup, the "*" seems to work so long as it's not in my first line. Weird.


PatPat - Dec 10, 2007 4:34 pm (#2171 of 2575)

Yeah, I think Hannah Abbot is a Hufflepuff. I'm not sure about the answer either, but I have a guess.

I'm using my laptop with IE, when I see the green for the "grey" spelling. I'm home sick from work today, but I'll try on my MAC at school tomorrow and see if that makes a difference. This is really weird!

Puck, it also works if you put a starting and ending tage before the * with nothing in between: < B>< /B>* (Finn's idea).


Liz Mann - Dec 10, 2007 7:59 pm (#2172 of 2575)

Oh dear, azi, PatPat and Puck are right - Hannah was in Hufflepuff. Lavender Brown was the first to be sorted into Gryffindor.

PAH, your turn now. Question: Who does Malfoy choose to be his second for the wizard's duel with Harry?


Puck - Dec 10, 2007 8:03 pm (#2173 of 2575)

**still trying to untangle self from yarn**

Ahh, you've got a 50/50 chance on that one.


Potteraholic - Dec 10, 2007 9:03 pm (#2174 of 2575)

Hmmm... Liz, I think I'm going to go with Crabbe because I don't remember Goyle doing anything much, to be honest. (Not that Crabbe did anything much either, except look menacing and follow Malfoy's orders, not until the RoR and the Fiendfyre.) Yup, Crabbe it is and I'm the gold piece.


PatPat - Dec 10, 2007 10:29 pm (#2175 of 2575)

That's what I would have said too, PAH!

Question: Are all the questions in the entire game related to book one or are we just limiting ourselves to that one? It doesn't matter. I'm just curious. I'm rather like Harry in that way.


Liz Mann - Dec 10, 2007 10:49 pm (#2176 of 2575)

They're all about book one because the game is based on it.

You're right, PAH! I rolled a six for you so you are now well in the lead.

Question: How many messenger owls deliver the Nimbus Two Thousand to Harry?


PatPat- Dec 10, 2007 11:07 pm (#2177 of 2575)

Yikes! Hmmm. OK. I remember this scene. How many owls? ***sigh*** There are so many owl scenes. I'm going with six.


PatPat- Dec 11, 2007 4:29 am (#2178 of 2575)

Sorry I forgot to say on my last post: I am grey!


Tazzygirl - Dec 11, 2007 8:15 am (#2179 of 2575)

**emerges from under a super warm down comforter** What's going on? Oh! A game, how lovely! **scoops up Rinky and settles down to watch everyone play**


Potteraholic - Dec 11, 2007 12:11 pm (#2180 of 2575)

Here's the latest Player / # of Turns update:

Puck = silver 2 azi = black 2 Potteraholic = gold 2 PatPat = grey 2

Thanks Puck for helping me get my yarn and sorry you got so tangled up in it. And PatPat, are you going to satrt knitting, too? You'll need another needle! ***thinking what are the chances of rolling 2 6's in a row and thinking the next question will surely do her in***

Hey there, Tazzygirl! It sure sounds cozy under that comforter!

***goes back to untangling the yarn and putting rolling it back into a ball*** Maybe, it would be better if I did this on my own, Puck. It seems like the yarn's getting the better of you. Thanks again, though!


Liz Mann - Dec 11, 2007 1:34 pm (#2181 of 2575)

Hiya Tazzygirl! Great to see you back again.

PatPat, it is indeed six owls! *cheers* I rolled a two for you and you're currently in second place, but not if Puck gets this next question right.

Puck, your question: What colour are the flames that spring up behind Harry and Hermione as they enter the chamber with the potion bottles?


PatPat- Dec 11, 2007 3:54 pm (#2182 of 2575)

Yayyy! I got another one right! Cool.

***Looks longingly at Tazzy's comforter***

You can join in the next game, Tazzy!


Puck - Dec 11, 2007 5:37 pm (#2183 of 2575)

My color is silver, and I believe they were purple flames.

***crosses fingers that are now free of yarn***


Liz Mann - Dec 11, 2007 6:36 pm (#2184 of 2575)

Indeed they were, Puck! You have moved forward three spaces and are now in second place, though still quite a bit behind PAH.

Azi, let's see if we can move you forward a bit. Question: What type of broom does Draco Malfoy own (in book one remember).


azi - Dec 11, 2007 7:14 pm (#2185 of 2575)

Ooops, lol! My colour is black and I think he owned a Comet Two-Sixty.


Liz Mann - Dec 11, 2007 7:18 pm (#2186 of 2575)

He did indeed own a Comet Two Sixty. I rolled a five and you are now in joint second place with PAH.

PAH, to put yourself even further ahead: What colour were Firenze's eyes?


Potteraholic - Dec 11, 2007 9:18 pm (#2187 of 2575)

Okay, I don't think I'm, going anywhere with this one. I think they were unusual in some way, light-colored perhaps? Either white(?), blue or even violet(?). But I've got to go with one, so I'm going to pick blue, even though that doesn't seem unusual enough to me. And my piece's color is gold.


Puck - Dec 11, 2007 9:57 pm (#2188 of 2575)

***jumps up and down with joy over knowing answer***


Liz Mann - Dec 12, 2007 3:45 pm (#2189 of 2575)

They were pale sapphire so blue is correct! And I rolled another six! You are eleven spaces in the lead and probably a little over a quarter of the way around the board.

Okay, PatPat, your turn. You're currently in last place but if you get this right and roll a number higher than a two, you could overtake Puck and Azi. Question: What is the last exam given to Hogwarts first year students before the summer holidays?


Potteraholic - Dec 12, 2007 5:11 pm (#2190 of 2575)

Here's the latest Player / # of Turns update:

Puck = silver 3 azi = black 3 Potteraholic = gold 3 PatPat = grey 3 with PatPat awaiting response to her answer

OMG! A third six? My good fortune with the die is a little embarrassing. I'm trying to figure out how I would answer PatPat's question, which would be a pure guess for me!

***hoping a 6 turns up for PatPat (and Puck and azi, too)! ***


Puck - Dec 12, 2007 5:31 pm (#2191 of 2575)

PAH, what kind of charm did you put on that die?


Tazzygirl - Dec 12, 2007 6:12 pm (#2192 of 2575)

**waves to everyone** Hi!

**sends Rinky off to grab some hot chocolate**


Potteraholic - Dec 12, 2007 6:30 pm (#2193 of 2575)

Puck, Maybe it's Sestetium! ?


azi - Dec 12, 2007 6:49 pm (#2194 of 2575)

**flops down on some cushions** Hey, I've got a muggle DVD of a programme called House. It's amazing what muggles can work out without magic.

**settles down with Archie to watch it**


Puck - Dec 12, 2007 7:16 pm (#2195 of 2575)

**sits down to watch, too, and hands Azi a butterbeer**


Potteraholic - Dec 13, 2007 12:08 am (#2196 of 2575)

***wishes there were healers like Dr. House in St. Mungo's, smart barbs and all***


PatPat- Dec 13, 2007 1:37 am (#2197 of 2575)

ugghhh. I have no idea! This is going to be a complete guess. I'll say History of Magic, but I'm really not sure at all!

***Sits down to pout that she is probably now in last place. Grabs some Bertie Botts' for comfort.***

Yecchh! Soap flavored!


Potteraholic - Dec 13, 2007 2:26 am (#2198 of 2575)

Oops! In a previous post, I said that PatPat was awaiting a response to her answer when she hadn't answered the question yet! Sorry, Liz and PatPat!

I would have said History of Magic, too, PatPat. I think it was almost Harry's least favorite subject, after Potions, and I figure having to take it would be dragged out 'til the end.


Liz Mann - Dec 13, 2007 5:30 pm (#2199 of 2575)

And indeed, it is History of Magic! And I have rolled a four which means you move into second place. However you won't stay there for long if Puck gets this next question right and rolls higher than a two.

Puck, your next question is: What colour are Norbert's eyes?


Puck - Dec 13, 2007 5:58 pm (#2200 of 2575)

Ummm, no idea, so a wild guess...


My color is silver, if I by some miracle get the right answer.

I have questioned Her Royal Rowlingness

Post  Lady Arabella on Tue May 07, 2013 10:16 pm


Liz Mann - Dec 13, 2007 6:29 pm (#2201 of 2575)

No, they're orange. Close, though.

Azi, it's your turn. If you answer this and roll more than a two then you will move into second place. Question: Which centaur is wild and black-haired?


Puck - Dec 13, 2007 8:56 pm (#2202 of 2575)

D'oh! I almost said orange, but deleted it.


azi - Dec 13, 2007 11:44 pm (#2203 of 2575)

Erm, I will guess Bane. Black counter.


Potteraholic - Dec 14, 2007 12:00 am (#2204 of 2575)

azi, I only know 2 centaur's names: Firenze and Bane. So I would have said Bane, too. Wait a minute, was there also one named Ronan? Even if there is, I still would have said Bane.

***wondering how you liked the House DVD***


Liz Mann - Dec 14, 2007 1:19 am (#2205 of 2575)

Yes it was Bane! (And PAH, don't forget Ronan.) And I rolled a six! Which means you are now in clear second place, though PAH is still a few spaces ahead of you.

PAH, let's see if you can put some more distance between yourself and Azi. Your question: How many letters are sent from Hogwarts on the third attempt at delivery to Harry?


PatPat- Dec 14, 2007 1:53 am (#2206 of 2575)

Whoa! I can't believe I got my question right! BTW, I forgot to say my color was grey. Sorry!!

That's a tough one, PAH! Good luck!


Potteraholic - Dec 14, 2007 2:42 am (#2207 of 2575)

Okay, let's see; bear with me here. I've got to keep the movie version out of my head. The first time, there was one and Uncle Vernon grabbed it. The second time, also one I think, but by then, Harry had been given Dudley's 2nd bedroom. Then... the next day, Harry tried to sneak down and get the post, but Uncle Vernon was there, sleeping in front of the mail slot. And after that, there were loads coming out of the fireplace and then the Dursleys and Harry went driving all over. many letters were there the 3rd time? Jo likes numbers like 3, 7, 12. So I'll say...3? Oh, and gold is my color.


Liz Mann - Dec 14, 2007 2:09 pm (#2208 of 2575)

Well the answer on the question card is wrong. It says twelve, which is how many was delivered on the fourth attempt. The person who came up with the questions must have forgotten one of them. Anyway, I checked the book and the answer is indeed three. I rolled a two for you.

PatPat, you are currently in third place. Here's your question: Professor McGonagall's study is on what floor of Hogwarts?


PatPat- Dec 14, 2007 2:25 pm (#2209 of 2575)

***sigh*** Why do I keep getting these floor questions? No one knows what floor anything is on! They change in each book! OK, let's think. First book. OK, they went to her study, I think, after coming back from the Astronomy tower after giving Norbert to Charlie's friends. That's where she yelled at them. hmmm. How far downstairs did they go? AARRGGHHH! I'm just going to have to guess here. I'll say seventh floor.


Good Evans - Dec 14, 2007 6:25 pm (#2210 of 2575)

** walks in to room, having had a nice rest, watches game for a few minutes and then sets about knitting with spaghetti**


Puck - Dec 14, 2007 6:39 pm (#2211 of 2575)

**wonders if perhaps Julie should have cooked the noodles first**


Liz Mann - Dec 14, 2007 8:30 pm (#2212 of 2575)

Sorry, PatPat, it's on the first floor.

Puck, your turn again. You're currently in last place but could move ahead of PatPat if you get this right.

Question: At the beginning-of-term feast, Nearly Headless Nick tells the new Gryffindors that he hasn't eaten for how many years? (Be careful.)


Puck - Dec 14, 2007 10:10 pm (#2213 of 2575)

Well. it was actually 499 years, but I think he just rounded it off to 500. I'm silver.


PatPat- Dec 14, 2007 10:57 pm (#2214 of 2575)

mmm. Puck I think that was one of the math mistakes in HP. I think he actually said nearly 400 years. JKR and her "maths" again!

***sigh***I knew I was going to get that floor one wrong. Oh well.

***chomps on some Fizzing Whizbees for comfort***

Yes, I have a sweet tooth!


Potteraholic - Dec 14, 2007 11:19 pm (#2215 of 2575)

Harry Potter Trivia game in progress. Here's an update:

Puck = silver 5 (with Puck awaiting response to her answer) azi = black 4 Potteraholic = gold 4 PatPat = grey 4

It seems like many of these "number of" questions are a bit suspect, given Jo's wobbly calculations!

***thinking am bound to get another numbers question since I have questioned Her Royal Rowlingness***


PatPat- Dec 14, 2007 11:21 pm (#2216 of 2575)

Yeah, the floor ones too! They change several times!

(Of course I'll probably get another floor question.)


Liz Mann - Dec 15, 2007 12:00 am (#2217 of 2575)

Unfortunately, Puck, PatPat is right. That's why I said be careful. He said 400 years therefore that is the answer, even if it's not actually right.

Azi, your question: En route to rescuing the Philosopher's Stone, Harry and Hermione enter a chamber that contains several potion bottles. How many bottles are there?


Potteraholic - Dec 15, 2007 12:11 am (#2218 of 2575)

Ooh, I actually know this 100%. That happens very rarely in this game! Too bad it's not my turn!


PatPat- Dec 15, 2007 12:14 am (#2219 of 2575)

***sigh*** I know this one, too, PAH. And when my turn comes, I'll probably get: what floor is Professor Quirrel's room on?


Potteraholic - Dec 15, 2007 3:07 am (#2220 of 2575)

Awww, poor PatPat! Maybe this will help:


Puck - Dec 15, 2007 3:22 am (#2221 of 2575)

OOh, Chocolate, can I have a bite?

Yes, I actually know the current question as well. Figures.


PatPat- Dec 15, 2007 3:07 pm (#2222 of 2575)

mmmm. Thanks, PAH! Of course you can have a bite, Puck! And anyone else who wants one! ***breaks off several pieces and offers them around***

Yum! Is this from Honeydukes?!


Liz Mann - Dec 15, 2007 3:38 pm (#2223 of 2575)

Hee hee! Would you rather be asked things like who the DADA professor was or what platform the Hogwarts Express goes from?

I'll try and find some slightly easier questions from now on.


Potteraholic - Dec 15, 2007 3:45 pm (#2224 of 2575)

I'm just kidding, Liz. The questions you've been choosing to ask are absolutely fine. You're right; it wouldn't be much of a game if you asked us questions like those.

And PatPat, only Honeyduke's finest chocolate for you!

***getting ready to go out and get some Christmas shopping done and wishing it was done already***


PatPat- Dec 15, 2007 4:16 pm (#2225 of 2575)

Absolutely, Liz! The questions are fine! We were just commenting on the irony of the fact that we know other people's questions and not our own! Keep 'em coming!


Liz Mann - Dec 15, 2007 10:53 pm (#2226 of 2575)

Lol. Isn't it always the way that that happens?

She's fallen asleep in front of the fire. Someone poke her.

That wasn't me, it was a pretend-me to make the healer's think I was still around. I snuck out for a couple of days.

*yawns* That trip's made me sleepy... **toasts marshmallows on the fire**

Black guesses 7 potion bottles.


Potteraholic - Dec 16, 2007 10:24 pm (#2231 of 2575)

azi's awake/back! And I think you're right about the 7 bottles.

I tried to look at the pictures of your mini-holiday with the info. you posted, but don't think I'm doing it right. I'm not familiar with facebook's layout and I just dont know what I'm doing wrong. From your chat thread post, it sounded like you had fun.


azi - Dec 16, 2007 10:27 pm (#2232 of 2575)

Hmmm, try this link with http etc. but without www.

I think Facebook is just being awkward. You should be able to scroll through the pictures.


PatPat- Dec 17, 2007 12:11 am (#2233 of 2575)

Very cool, azi. Hope you had fun! And I am almost positive your answer of 7 is correct!


Liz Mann - Dec 17, 2007 1:37 am (#2234 of 2575)

Seven is correct, Azi! I rolled a two. You're still in second place.

PAH, you're next. Question: Students perform which magical feat for Professor Flitwick's end of year exam?


Potteraholic - Dec 17, 2007 2:38 am (#2235 of 2575)

Okay, complete wild guess here. Am thinking it has something to do with Wingardium leviosa! because that spell figured so much in the whole troll escapade at Hallowe'en. But what would they need to levitate? A teacup? A spoon? Absolutely no idea! Getting 3 6's in a row more than makes up for not moving during this turn, believe me. So I'll say -- a spoon. I've got to say something, right? And gold is my color.

Oh dear, I'm afraid you're wrong, PAH. They had to make a pineapple dance across the desk.

PatPat, your turn now. Question: What sort of hat tumbles out of the Christmas cracker that Harry pulls with Fred?


PatPat- Dec 17, 2007 1:45 pm (#2238 of 2575)

Oh boy, I remember the hat with the stuffed vulture coming out of a cracker but I'm pretty sure that was in PoA, not PS. ***sigh*** I also seem to remember some sort of pink hat. Ah well, I'll go with the pink one, but I don't remember exactly what type it was, so I am sure I am completely wrong!

And my color is grey.

***sits back preparing to be in last place. Pulls out the rest of the Honeydukes candybar for comfort***


Puck - Dec 17, 2007 2:02 pm (#2239 of 2575)

Don't worry, Patpat, as long as I'm here, you won't get last place in trivia.


Liz Mann - Dec 17, 2007 8:32 pm (#2240 of 2575)

It was a Rear Admiral's hat.

Puck, your question: What does Rubeus Hagrid say to Ron Weasley after Norbert bites him?

Potteraholic - Dec 18, 2007 1:08 am (#2241 of 2575)

Here's the latest Player / # of Turns update:

Puck = silver (6) [awaiting her answer to Liz’s question] azi = black (5) Potteraholic= gold (5) PatPat = grey (5)

Of course, the tap-dancing pineapple routine! How could I forget?


Puck - Dec 18, 2007 1:44 pm (#2242 of 2575)

Sorry, you’re waiting on me, I suppose. I went to think about the question when I checked the chat thread, and then forgot to come back.

My guess is the Hagrid said something about teething.


Liz Mann - Dec 18, 2007 5:13 pm (#2243 of 2575)

He tells Ron off for frightening Norbert. Maybe you all need to go back and re-read the first book.

Azi, your turn again. This could possibly be your opportunity to overtake PAH for first place as you are only three spaces behind. Question: When was Olivanders’ established?


Puck - Dec 18, 2007 6:49 pm (#2244 of 2575)

You know, I was thinking about him telling Ron not to frightening Norbert, and then seconded guessed myself, just like I did with the eye color. Perhaps I should just go with my first instinct from now on.

I just don't seem able to recall that kind of minute detail.

**goes to swim a few laps in the pool while waiting for next turn**

Yet another numbers question. There seem to be a quite a few of 'em. ***thinking that if azi actually knows the answer to this question she deserves a six!***


PatPat- Dec 19, 2007 12:37 am (#2246 of 2575)

Yikes! Tough question, azi. I agree with PAH. If you know this, you deserve first place!


azi - Dec 19, 2007 11:42 pm (#2247 of 2575)

Black guesses 382BC.

Summat like.

Sorry for the delay, Internet went down for the past 2 days. I haven't coped well (and still aren't, since Facebook is diverting to Google for some reason ).

**rocks back and forth on the floor** There are more important things than muggle electrical items...

Ooh, that sounds right, azi. I know there was a 3 in there somewhere! ***sending good internet energy spells your way so that you can stop rocking rocking back and forth and start jumping for joy instead ***


Liz Mann - Dec 20, 2007 12:30 am (#2249 of 2575)

382 BC is correct, azi! And, you got a six and have moved into first place.

PAH, let's see if you can reclaim the first place position. Your question: When they are visiting Diagon Alley, what do Hagrid and Harry buy immediately after they finish their ice cream?


Potteraholic - Dec 20, 2007 1:04 am (#2250 of 2575)

Hmmm... there might be some movie contamination here. Let's see, something Hagrid and Harry buy together? Harry gets his wand and his robes on his own, Hagrid gets Hedwig on his own, so that leaves his books and potions ingredients. So I'll go with... books? No idea. Potteraholic= gold

Here's the latest Player / # of Turns update:

Whoa! I'm impressed, azi! I would not have gotten that!


Liz Mann - Dec 20, 2007 2:37 pm (#2252 of 2575)

Oh, sorry PAH, it was his parchment and quills. Remember he cheered up a bit after his conversation with Malfoy in Madam Malkins when he found a bottle of ink that changed colour as you wrote.

I might not have gotten that either, actually. I thought he went somewhere else between Madam Malkin's and that shop. *shrugs*

PatPat, your turn. You're in second to last place so this could let you catch up with PAH a bit. Question: Where did Harry Potter get his first wizard's chess set?


azi - Dec 20, 2007 3:09 pm (#2253 of 2575)

*smiles* Yey! I didn't know the answer to your question, PAH - it was difficult.

**settles onto stool and plays piano** Alas, it's out of tune! **watches Archie put his hands over his ears**


PatPat- Dec 20, 2007 3:51 pm (#2254 of 2575)

hmm. I think he got it out of one of the Christmas crackers. And my color is grey

***settles down to listen to azi's piano***


Liz Mann - Dec 20, 2007 4:45 pm (#2255 of 2575)

Yes, he did get it out of a cracker. You rolled a two.

Puck: What is Dudley Dursley's favourite sport?


PatPat- Dec 20, 2007 4:50 pm (#2256 of 2575)

***Jumps up and down at getting the question right. Then sees measley roll. Sits down to pout.***

I never was a good roller.


Puck - Dec 21, 2007 12:04 am (#2257 of 2575)

Boxing, and Harry his favorite punching bag.


Potteraholic - Dec 21, 2007 10:15 am (#2258 of 2575)

Puck = silver (7)[awaiting Liz's response to her answer] azi = black (6) Potteraholic= gold (6) PatPat = grey (6)

Parchment and quills?! Aargh! That's 2 in a row I've gotten wrong! Okay, I'm really going to have to concentrate for the next one.


Liz Mann - Dec 21, 2007 6:34 pm (#2259 of 2575)

Well his favourite sport in book one was 'Harry-hunting', but since Harry-hunting generally ends in Harry being used as a punch bag, I'll give it to you.

I rolled a three, and you and PatPat are now in joint last place.

Azi, your next question: What colour is the egg from which Norbert hatches?


azi - Dec 21, 2007 6:54 pm (#2260 of 2575)

Black guesses black.

**eats custard profiteroles** Anyone want some?


Puck - Dec 21, 2007 7:18 pm (#2261 of 2575)

Thanks, Lizzy!

What's a profiterole?


Potteraholic - Dec 21, 2007 8:49 pm (#2262 of 2575)

Puck = silver (7) azi = black (7) [awaiting Liz's response to her answer] Potteraholic= gold (6) PatPat = grey (6)

Mmm... profiteroles. Yes, please, azi! A perfect way to celebrate the official start of the school holidays!

Puck, profiteroles are cream-or custard-filled pastry balls that are dipped in chocolate; at least the ones I've eaten in the past were like that -- azi's might be a bit different. They are delicious and I especially like them when they are chilled.


Puck - Dec 21, 2007 8:53 pm (#2263 of 2575)

Ahh, like a chocolate dipped creme puff! Yummy! Yes, please, I'd love one.


Liz Mann - Dec 21, 2007 9:43 pm (#2264 of 2575)

Yes, azi, it is indeed black! You have moved forward four spaces and are well in the lead.

PAH: Where in England do Nicholas Flamel and his wife Perenelle live?


Potteraholic - Dec 21, 2007 9:56 pm (#2265 of 2575)

Is it Devon? My piece is gold.

***fingers crossed that it's right; even a roll of one would be okay since my piece is starting to gather dust after sitting still for a while***

Liz Mann - Dec 22, 2007 1:55 am (#2266 of 2575)

Yes it is Devon. I rolled a five so you are now just two spaces behind azi.

PatPat: What sort of owl does Draco Malfoy have?


PatPat- Dec 22, 2007 1:57 am (#2267 of 2575)

Arrghh. I know this. hmmmmmmmm. Is it an Eagle Owl? That sounds right to me. Yeah, let's go with that.

Here's the latest Player / # of Turns update:

Puck = silver (7) azi = black (7) Potteraholic = gold (7) PatPat = grey (7)[awaiting Liz's response to her answer]

Puck, here is a picture of some especially yummy-looking profiteroles.

How do yours compare, azi?


Puck - Dec 22, 2007 2:58 am (#2269 of 2575)

Yup, creme puffs with chocolate sauce.

**licks chocolate from fingers**


PatPat- Dec 22, 2007 5:19 am (#2270 of 2575)

Ah, I always wondered what those were too. Yum!

***Bites down and cream squirts everywhere***


Puck - Dec 22, 2007 12:31 pm (#2271 of 2575)

**hands Patpat a napkin**


Potteraholic - Dec 22, 2007 1:15 pm (#2272 of 2575)

With all my daydreaming about the yummy profiteroles, I forgot to cheer for myself for getting my question right, and for actually moving from the spot I sat on for two turns! I was in danger of beginning to take root there!

And PatPat, I would have had no idea how to answer your question! ***wondering if anyone else has a stomachache from eating one too many profiteroles ***


azi - Dec 22, 2007 1:35 pm (#2273 of 2575)

My profiteroles had more chocolate on.

**moves on to eating cookies** Mmmm...apparently I'm still hungry


Puck - Dec 22, 2007 5:22 pm (#2274 of 2575)

**pours a glass of milk to go with all these sweets**

Anyone else want some?


Liz Mann - Dec 22, 2007 7:07 pm (#2275 of 2575)

*gobbles up a profiterole*

And indeed, it was an eagle owl. You got a five so you are now in clear third place, though still a fair way behind PAH and azi.

Puck, let's try and get you out of last place. Question: What is the price per scoop of the black beetle eyes that Harry sees in the apothecary? (I'll give you a clue, it's a low amount and a fairly easy number of guess.)


PatPat- Dec 22, 2007 9:00 pm (#2276 of 2575)

Whoa, tough question, Puck! Thanks for the napkin.

***wipes chin and reaches for more profiteroles***


Potteraholic - Dec 22, 2007 11:32 pm (#2277 of 2575)

Here's the latest Player / # of Turns update:

Puck, I hope you get this one and the clue helps you; I have to admit, I don't know it and the clue doesn't really help me.
Cookies, Puck? What kind of cookies? Did I tell you my stomachache is gone now? ***hears the and goes off to brew a nice big pot of to go with all these goodies being eaten***


Puck - Dec 23, 2007 4:20 am (#2278 of 2575)

I think Azi has the cookies, but would you like some milk for your tea?

My guess is two knuts, and I'm silver.


Ticker - Dec 23, 2007 6:23 am (#2279 of 2575)


***Runs down the hall laughing & flailing arms uncontrollably and promptly smacks into the glass door by the stairs.***

Ooooh... didn't expect that... ***Passes out***


Potteraholic - Dec 23, 2007 2:41 pm (#2280 of 2575)

Ticker, are you okay? (And, nice to meet you, BTW.)

Oops, sorry Puck, I forgot they were azi's cookies. I hope it's alright that I had one, azi. And thanks for the milk, Puck. I don't like my tea without it. I was going to offer to make some coffee, but I'm all out!


azi - Dec 23, 2007 2:51 pm (#2281 of 2575)

**quietly puts cold compress on Ticker's head**

They're Maryland cookies (I don't know if you have them in the US?). I like them because they have more chocolate chips than cookie, and I can nibble around the chips so they're eaten last.

I've moved onto Cadbury's Roses now. A big tin! Alas, Archie ate all the strawberry and orange creams.

**begins to make collage with the empty wrappers** The boring cream walls are icky, no?


Potteraholic - Dec 23, 2007 3:17 pm (#2282 of 2575)

***gets more ice for the cold compress*** Good thinking, azi! Hope Ticker doesn't get a big lump on her head. ***starts rooting in knitting bag for some kind of headache medicine***

Those cookies sound truly scrumptious. I agree, the more chips, the better! So, azi, which are better, Cadbury's Roses or Quality Street? I prefer Cadbury's but won't say no to some Quality Street if there's an open box lying around!

My teeth hurt just thinking about all these sweets: profiteroles, choc. chip cookies, and now Cadbury's! ***goes off to make a toasted cheese sandwich***


azi - Dec 23, 2007 5:55 pm (#2283 of 2575)

Cadbury's is my preference too, but I'll eat both.

Lol, I just finished eating a cheese and cucumber sandwich on seeded bread. Yummy and healthy (except for those crisps I put in!). My diet sounds awful...believe me when I say I do have lots of vegetables and fruit (they just aren't worth talking about)!

**continues making wrapper collage** It's going to have a rainbow.


Liz Mann - Dec 23, 2007 6:00 pm (#2284 of 2575)

Argh! There's been an accident... my foot knocked the game board and all the pieces went flying! I'm going to have to go through this thread when I get a moment and work out where they all were.

Edited by megfox* Jan 1, 2008 8:57 pm

It's a rainy day in Brooklyn --it's been like this all day-- and I've just been wrapping presents, doing laundry, folding laundry, and checking the Forum. So... since I've got some time on my hands before I leave to go to my parents' place, I thought I'd go through all the trivia game questions, answers, and moves. Hope you don't mind, Liz, but me being me, which is somewhat anal and detail-oriented, I made a chart of the game results. I've gone through it twice, and I'm pretty sure all the figures are correct. Maybe you'll find it helpful.

Edited to add: I just realized that I didn't explain what R or W mean; Right or Wrong.

*Edited per Potteraholic's request. Please email me if you have any questions.

archivist’s note: Sadly, when saving the World Crossing thread, the chart didn’t save as a text file.


Tazzygirl - Dec 23, 2007 10:23 pm (#2286 of 2575)

Anyone want peppermint hot chocolate? It's yummy! **takes a big gulp**

We have about 8 posts until we max out this thread!


Potteraholic - Dec 23, 2007 10:42 pm (#2287 of 2575)

Tazzy! That peppermint hot chocolate does sound yummy, so yes, a mug for me please!

Really, about 8 (or now 7) posts left? I just checked out the info about your post (#2286), and the number at the end of the web address is 2293. I thought threads had a max. capacity of 3,000 posts? Did something on WX change recently? Or am I interpreting the number at the end of a post's web address wrong?


Liz Mann - Dec 24, 2007 4:16 pm (#2288 of 2575)

Thank you PAH! That was really helpful, especially since I have discovered from it that some of the pieces on the board were in the wrong place before it got knocked. I knew some of them had been shifted before but I thought I'd put them back in the right place. Obviously not.

As it actually stands, azi and PAH are in tied first place, nine spaces ahead of PatPat, who is six spaces ahead of Puck. I had everyone in the right place except for you, PAH, so it really is a good job you did that chart.

Puck, your question was wrong I'm afraid - it's five knuts.

Azi, your turn. Question: How many students can ride in each boat that carries them across the lake to Hogwarts castle? (Remember Hagrid shouting, "No more than ___ to a boat!")


azi - Dec 24, 2007 4:22 pm (#2289 of 2575)

Black says 4.

**settles down with peppermint hot chocolate** Mmmm...

PAH, if people delete posts, then that reduces the number of posts available on this thread, I think.


Potteraholic - Dec 24, 2007 4:47 pm (#2290 of 2575)

***wondering if Ticker is feeling any better since she's been lying there on the floor for a bit*** I think you're right, azi. At least, that's what I would have said!

Yay! It's a beautiful sunny Christmas Eve morning here at my parents' house. I have a couple of hours to myself before I start helping out in the kitchen getting ready for tomorrow's feast!

Liz, I'm glad the chart helped. It was a surprise to find that azi and I were tied for 1st place, but I'm sure that won't last long! Especially if some more numbers questions come up!

And, azi, I know that deleting posts shortens the life of a thread, but I thought that the number at the end of a post's web address showed the actual number of posts used in that thread, despite the actual number given to the post that we all see in blue. Very wordy explanation, that. Simpler version: This post is #2290, but the number at the end of its web address is 2296. So that means that 6 posts have been deleted, right? And we have about 700 more posts in this thread if the max. is 3,000? I know, I'll just ask the hosts!

Edited to add: RE: the max. number of posts in a thread, I didn't want to bother the hosts, so I did some research on the Potty Games thread (Vol.IV) which closed recently. It closed with a 2999 at the end of the web address, at post #2987, so about 13 posts were deleted. So I think that means that we have quite a few posts to go, everyone, before we max out!


azi - Dec 24, 2007 5:25 pm (#2291 of 2575)

Oooo, sun. **makes the ward sunny** That's better than the gloom outside.

(I wish it was nice and peaceful here. Father decided Christmas Eve is a good day to buy and fit a new shower. Mother disagrees. *sigh*)


Potteraholic - Dec 24, 2007 10:41 pm (#2292 of 2575)

(Am checking the Forum one more time before things get hectic around here and then calm down tomorrow night. Am going to take a wee nap so that I don't fall asleep at midnight mass; mom's in the Choir.)

***wondering how azi's wrapper collage is coming along*** I have a box of chocolate-covered cherries w/liquer here. Does anyone want one? Their wrappers are shiny gold and red. Would they work in your rainbow, azi?

Tazzygirl - Dec 25, 2007 8:16 am (#2293 of 2575)

**passes a mug of peppermint hot chocolate to PAH** Enjoy!

On the number of posts- As of this post here, there has been a total of.... 2300.... **smacks forehead** Blame it on lack of sleep, a sugar high, and my brain being on vacation. We do in fact have several hundred more posts to go. LOL!!!! (I know what I did now- I didn't look at the 2293 in the number of posts. I just looked at the 93 and assumed we were at the end of the 2000s. Not sure if that made sense, but there you go. )

**goes back to being buried under the down comforter**


Liz Mann - Dec 25, 2007 10:48 pm (#2294 of 2575)


Azi, you're correct, the answer is four. And I rolled a six! A bit of Christmas luck. You've just passed the halfway mark around the board.

PAH, your question: What ingredients make up a simple potion to cure boils?


Potteraholic - Dec 26, 2007 3:43 am (#2295 of 2575)


Well, let me begin my answer by saying that in my other life outside St.Mungo's, chemistry was never my subject. Consequently, I am rubbish at potions! The potion to cure boils learned by Harry in his first year may be a simple one, but I have no idea what one ingredient is, let alone ingredients!

I'm gold and I'm not goin' anywhere because I have no idea on the answer. ***hoping that this does not mark the start of another round of not knowing any answers and beginning to set roots in one spot***

Note: * waiting for Liz's response to her answer and * waiting for her answer to Liz's question.


Liz Mann - Dec 26, 2007 11:51 am (#2296 of 2575)

It was crushed nettles and snake fangs. And if I remember correctly there were also porcupine quills, which Neville added too soon, resulting in a melted cauldron.

Okay, PatPat, your turn. Which teacher has yellow eyes like a hawk?


Potteraholic - Dec 26, 2007 1:17 pm (#2297 of 2575)

I will, of course, remember these ingredients for ever and ever, but will probably never need to recall them for anything else ever again.

Typical! Of course I know the answer to PatPat's question! But PatPat, you have had some tough questions before (which floor...) so you deserve this "non-floor" question. (Hope you're feeling better now that you're home. Is your appetite any better? Has any of our talk about profiteroles, cookies, chocolates, milk, tea, and cheese sandwiches done anything to improve it? )

***wondering if Tazzygirl has any more of that yummy peppermint hot chocolate***

Note: * waiting for Liz's response to her answer and * waiting for her answer to Liz's question.

(I didn't want to use up a post on the Five Words thread to make this plea to azi, PatPat, Puck, Tazzygirl and any other Five Worders who happen to stop by St. Mungo's: Help! The thread's dormant! No one's posted since Dec 23, 2007 11:52 pm, almost 3 days ago! Something's got to happen to the story; an ending at least. Maybe it was all just Neville's dream. / (half serious, half joking)


PatPat- Dec 26, 2007 6:54 pm (#2298 of 2575)

Ah, yes, I believe the answer to that is Madame Hooch. My color is grey.

Thanks PAH. I'm still fairly under the weather. This has been quite difficult to get over. But being home is helping tremendously and, yes, our food talk here is helping! If nothing else, it has kept me entertained as I am confined to bed. Don't know what I would do without you guys!

As for five words, I am heading over there now!


Potteraholic - Dec 27, 2007 6:52 pm (#2299 of 2575)

That's who I thought it was, PatPat. I hope you're right and get a good roll. ***sitting down to write some thank-you cards for the lovely presents that appeared in my room on Christmas morning***

Note: * waiting for Liz's response to her answer and * waiting for her answer to Liz's question.

Good to see your recent posts on the Five words thread PatPat, Puck and azi. Maybe there'll be some more soon? ***drumming fingers patiently on laptop***


Liz Mann - Dec 27, 2007 10:10 pm (#2300 of 2575)

Yes, PatPat, it is indeed Madam Hooch. You move forward four spaces.

Puck, your turn. What is Harry Potter's cauldron made of?

Yayy! And I actually got a decent roll this time. Things are looking up! I think I know the answer to Puck's question too.


Tazzygirl - Dec 27, 2007 11:03 pm (#2302 of 2575)

Potteraholic - Dec 28, 2007 1:06 am (#2304 of 2575)

Tazzy, thanks for the peppermint hot chocolate. Seeing as you've got a never-ending supply, and as there's an empty mug here, why don't we just pour PatPat a big steaming mugful?

Hmmm, Ticker is still groggy after running into the door. Can someone help me move her to the other couch and make her more comfortable? ***trying to remember where my quilt is to put on Ticker to keep her warm and cozy***

Psst! Tazzy, how about paying a visit to the Five Words thread and posting a few times? :hint: :hint:

***licks lips after sipping hot chocolate***

Thanks, PAH!


Liz Mann - Dec 28, 2007 3:10 pm (#2306 of 2575)

I got my Mum a massage mat for Christmas. I'll set it up and we'll lay Ticker on it. It might wake her up properly and get rid of the soreness of running into the door.


Tazzygirl - Dec 28, 2007 9:16 pm (#2307 of 2575)

**passes a huge mug over to PatPat**

Do you think Ticker might want some hot chocolate as well? **starts pouring some**

PAH- I've fallen a bit behind on the Five Words thread. I'm almost caught up (with writing all the posts down), so as soon as I get to the end I'll be posting more regularly again.


PatPat- Dec 29, 2007 12:45 am (#2308 of 2575)

Potteraholic - Dec 29, 2007 3:04 am (#2309 of 2575)

***wondering where Puck is, since it's been a wee while (5 days?) since we've heard from her*** ***hoping everything is okay and it's just holiday madness***

Liz, that massage mat should do the trick for Ticker, as well as that peppermint hot chocolate, Tazzy. (BTW, looking forward to your upcoming posts on the FW thread, Tazzy. Hopefully, the current story will wind down soon.)

Brrr! It's getting chilly in here! Does anyone know how to get a fire going? I haven't got the faintest idea what to do first, but I know the snap!, crackle! and pop! of a cheery fire is just what this place needs! ***imagining how the flickering flames will reflect off the foil wrappers in azi's collage***


PatPat- Dec 29, 2007 5:16 pm (#2310 of 2575)

***directs wand at fireplace. Flames spring up***

There you go, PAH! ***rubs hands in front of fire to warm them***


Potteraholic - Dec 29, 2007 6:46 pm (#2311 of 2575)

Thanks, PatPat. My, it's getting very cozy in this room, with azi's colorful wrapper collage and this bright cheery fire. I wonder what else we could put in this collage? I know I've got a bunch of butterbeer caps somewhere in my room. ***goes off to look for said bottlecaps***

(I wonder if Puck's on vacation with her family or if her laptop battery finally gave up and died?)

PatPat, I'm doing a test. Which of these colors came out as a grey you like (for your HP trivia game piece): 1, 2, or 3? Or did they all come out as some shade of green again?
1. grey
2. grey
3. grey


Ticker - Dec 29, 2007 7:15 pm (#2312 of 2575)

Mmmmmmmm... Massage mat AND Peppermint Hot Chocolate. Wow! You guys are the best! Thank you!

**Slurps mug empty & settles back down on mat with foamy mustache... **


PatPat- Dec 29, 2007 8:39 pm (#2313 of 2575)

***Hands Ticker a napkin***

Hmmm. Now this is weird. All three of those are some shade of grey, PAH. What did you do differently?


Potteraholic - Dec 29, 2007 9:54 pm (#2314 of 2575)

***coming back into the common room from her room*** I found some butterbeer caps for azi's collage. Hope she likes them. And Ticker, here's my quilt, if you'd like to get cozier; though you look pretty cozy right now on that massage mat with that mug of hot chocolate.

(PatPat, instead of typing 'grey' I used some HTML code for different colors on this website: just Hex Hub HTML Color Codes and use the wwwdotdecemberdotcom site. So... which is it? Grey #1, #2, or #3? )


PatPat- Dec 30, 2007 1:04 am (#2315 of 2575)

I'd say #3. The other two are a little light!

Ticker - Dec 30, 2007 4:58 am (#2317 of 2575)

Oh, yes... the quilt is very nice... what is this material? Do you mind if I leave the froth mustache? I've always wanted one this thick.

** ...takes a piece of cheesecake on the napkin from PatPat & ducks under the quilt to aviod explosions... **


Potteraholic - Dec 30, 2007 5:47 pm (#2318 of 2575)

Hmmm, it looks as if though our HP trivia game is stalled for a bit. Hopefully, it picks up steam again soon, in the New Year. Tazzy, how do you play 'Exploding Snap'?

Oh, I'd love a piece of cheesecake, PatPat. Maybe just a sliver of a slice. All these goodies and yummy hot chocolate that I've been having lately will definitely pack on the pounds.

Ticker, the quilt is just ordinary cotton, in lovely shades of blue and green, my favorite colors! There are pictures of dragons, unicorns, griffins, and mermaids on many of the squares.


Tazzygirl - Dec 30, 2007 10:42 pm (#2319 of 2575)

You know, PAH. I have no idea. I think you just create different towers and houses out of the cards and hope they don't....AHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!.... blow up.

Are my eyebrows still intact???


Potteraholic - Dec 30, 2007 11:13 pm (#2320 of 2575)

I can't believe I forgot how to start a fire before!It's INCENDIO! of course! ***shaking head at her forgetfulness***


PatPat- Dec 31, 2007 6:15 am (#2321 of 2575)

***Hoping Puck is merely vacationing with family and friends***

How's the cheesecake everyone? There's more here if anyone wants a second slice! ***takes out wand and multiplies the cheesecake by ten***


azi - Dec 31, 2007 2:40 pm (#2322 of 2575)

Mmmm, cheesecake! **takes a slice while watching Archie gobble it down** Aww, so cute!

**starts adding butterbeer caps to her collage** They add much needed shine to the explosive colours.

Blue and green are my favourite colours! My quilt is green with green circles (from Ikea, yey!). **snuggles in her blanket**


Ticker - Dec 31, 2007 4:27 pm (#2323 of 2575)

My quill point became so dull, it needs resharpening! ***checking Tazzy's eyebrows*** They look fine to me. Just lean back a bit form the table from now on, if you know what's good fer yah!

Pounds be darned, I'll have another slice of cheesecake after all, seeing as how PatPat pulled out her fancy multiplying spell. Wouldn't want any of that yummy treat to go to waste!

Yes, this room is shaping up nicely. azi's wrapper-and-butterbeer bottlecap-collage, Tazzy's comforter, and azi's and my blue and green quilts really cheer up the place. What we need now is some nice plants. I'm not much of a green wand. I was rubbish at Herbology. Does anyone know any plant-producing spells that might work?

Fred and George just delivered a box of fireworks!

**sets off a couple big ones** HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!


Liz Mann - Jan 1, 2008 7:41 pm (#2327 of 2575)



Potteraholic - Jan 1, 2008 8:11 pm (#2328 of 2575)

To all my Fellow St. Mungo's residents:

Those firecrackers Fred and George sent were fantastic, weren't they? Lots of OOHs and AAHs all around! And thanks for the flowers, PatPat. They're beautiful!

(Feeling a bit bored, so I updated the Trivia game chart I made earlier; it somehow got lost while I was organizing images in my Photobucketdotcom account. Hope the game resumes soon. )

Liz Mann - Jan 2, 2008 12:22 am (#2332 of 2575)

I think it was the cheesecake.


Ticker - Jan 2, 2008 12:22 am (#2333 of 2575)

Happy New Year!!! ** ...ducks sparkling ladybug firecracker... **

Oh, dear! I'll help eat you out Liz. There's lots of good things here, but you're on your own out of the lime jello.


PatPat- Jan 2, 2008 3:16 am (#2334 of 2575)

***dives to save cheesecake from falling Liz. Then falls on the floor laughing***


azi - Jan 4, 2008 3:38 pm (#2335 of 2575)

**Looks around, surprised**

What happened? I ate the green jello! Archie hid it under some ice cream...mmm ice cream and jello! **goes to eat some more**


PatPat- Jan 4, 2008 7:32 pm (#2336 of 2575)

***wonders if they should continue game without Puck. Licks cheesecake off fingers and places it safely on table***


Potteraholic - Jan 4, 2008 8:18 pm (#2337 of 2575)

***was wondering the same thing as PatPat and am glad someone else was feeling the same way***

(I thought my message to her to check this thread and the blue link to her question, both posted on the Five Words thread, would have nudged her over here. And your comments, too, PatPat! On the chat thread, it sounds like she's been very busy remodeling her childrens' bedrooms, so maybe sh'e just too swamped at the moment. I wonder if we can save her missed turns for her to have later when and if she's able to join us? Or someone else can sub for her (maybe Tazzy?) while she's busy? What does anyone think?)


Puck - Jan 4, 2008 10:42 pm (#2338 of 2575)

Oooh, so sorry! I forgot about the game, and then assumed you had continued without me!

I say Harry's cauldron is pewter.


Liz Mann - Jan 5, 2008 12:42 am (#2339 of 2575)

Pewter is correct, Puck! And I rolled a six! You are now tied with PatPat.

Azi, your question: How many hands does Albus Dumbledore's magic watch have?


azi - Jan 5, 2008 12:50 am (#2340 of 2575)


**sits dreamily, under the influence of green jello** I think the healers took exception to our new bright and cheerful room...


PatPat- Jan 5, 2008 6:03 am (#2341 of 2575)

***Jumps up and down that Puck is back and the game is back on***

Here, Puck. Have some cheesecake.


Liz Mann - Jan 5, 2008 4:09 pm (#2342 of 2575)

Twelve is correct, azi. I rolled a five and you are now approaching three quarters of the way round the board.

PAH, your chance to catch up: What colours were the screaming book in the restricted section (two colours - one dark, one light)?


Potteraholic - Jan 5, 2008 4:50 pm (#2343 of 2575)

Yay! Puck is back and is still playing the game and got a 6 for her right answer!

Okay, Liz, I'm pretty sure about this one, and your hints confirmed it. Black and silver? My piece is gold.

**quickly hands Azi some chocolate** Green Jello is BAD!!


Liz Mann - Jan 6, 2008 2:56 pm (#2345 of 2575)

Black and silver is correct, PAH! You move forward six spaces. You have now passed the half-way mark and are five spaces behind azi.

PatPat, your turn: According to an entry in Hermione's book, how old is Perenelle Flamel?


Potteraholic - Jan 6, 2008 4:49 pm (#2346 of 2575)

***pleased about getting answer right and a high roll*** ***feeling bad that PatPat has another numbers question, and hoping that she knows the answer*** ***wondering why Tazzy has such an aversion to lime jell-o (jelly to UK folks)***

MMM, cheesecake.

***sigh*** Why oh why???? I remember she was younger than Nicholas who was 665 I think. oh, I don't know. 664?? I'm sure that's wrong. ***goes off to have some hot chocolate to cheer up***

Oh, and my color is grey


Liz Mann - Jan 6, 2008 11:56 pm (#2349 of 2575)

658, I'm afraid. In future I'll make sure you don't get any more numbers questions. I'm not very good with them either, to tell the truth.

Puck, you again. How does Aunt Petunia dispose of the 24 letters from Hogwarts that arrive on Saturday?


Potteraholic - Jan 7, 2008 12:00 am (#2350 of 2575)

We've been eating lots of sweets here lately. I'm now in the mood for something savory, like fish and chips. I wonder where I can get some? ***goes off to find a house-elf (or is it hospital-elf?***)

LOL! Actually, Liz, I am a math teacher. That's the sad part. I just can't seem to keep all the numbers JKR uses in her books straight! Especially since a lot of them change! Ah well!


Tazzygirl - Jan 7, 2008 10:54 pm (#2352 of 2575)

PAH- the Healers here at St. M's infuse the green jello with stuff that will make you sane. They are trying to get us out of St. M's... **shudders** A while back we staged a riot and managed to get rid of all the Healers. They've somehow managed to come back in and are now passing around the green jello again...


Ticker - Jan 7, 2008 11:37 pm (#2353 of 2575)

I ran into a house elf & she had the nicest basket of fish & chips..... mmmmmmmmm. She's bringing more for anyone who would like.


PatPat- Jan 8, 2008 12:26 am (#2354 of 2575)

Yum! Fish and chips! Does she have some vinegar to put on that!


Puck - Jan 10, 2008 5:52 pm (#2355 of 2575)

Okay, I'm sure I posted a response yesterday, and yet it doesn't seem to be here.

Guess that means I definitely belong in St, Mungo's!

My guess was that Petunia put the letters in the blender. Random guess. I never remember those tiny details unless I just read the book.


Liz Mann - Jan 11, 2008 12:20 am (#2356 of 2575)

I posted a response too. I said that was correct and you moved forward four spaces.

Azi's question was about how many people Harry saw when he first looked into the mirror. Azi guessed that when he first looked, he saw himself and his parents, and then noticed the rest, so three. I replied that the question was worded awkwardly and that it means first as in when he looked into it in the classroom rather than in the room with Quirrell. I rephrased it, "How many people did Harry see in the mirror?" and am waiting for azi's final answer.


azi - Jan 11, 2008 12:21 am (#2357 of 2575)

I guessed 12, since I have no idea.


Potteraholic - Jan 11, 2008 12:31 am (#2358 of 2575)

Liz, this forum was down for a bit from Wednesday afternoon/evening to sometime in the first part of Thursday. It looks Puck's, azi's, and your posts got lost then.

* waiting for Liz's response to her answer
* waiting for her answer to Liz's question.


Liz Mann - Jan 11, 2008 4:54 pm (#2359 of 2575)

Sorry azi, the answer's ten.

PAH, your turn. What is the recommended cauldron size for first year Hogwarts students?


Potteraholic - Jan 11, 2008 5:24 pm (#2360 of 2575)

Those healers are a sneaky bunch Tazzy! I wonder if they've started using something else to spike with a sanity potion? ***scrutinizing and smelling a chip sprinkled with vinegar***

Of course, another number question. Hmmm, let's see, I remember it being rather low, (they're just ickle firsties, after all, and can't handle big cauldrons yet) and I want to say 3 because that's a number that seems to have some relevance in these stories, but then I thought what relevance does the size of a cauldron have to anything? And 1 seems too low. So... I'm going to go with 2. And I'm gold. ***hoping this line of thinking got me somewhere and doesn't seem ridiculous in hindsight***

* waiting for Liz's response to her answer
* waiting for her answer to Liz's question


Liz Mann - Jan 11, 2008 6:58 pm (#2361 of 2575)

Standard size two is correct, PAH. You got a five and are now tied with azi.

Puck, your question: What curse are Ron and Hermione planning to put on Snape during the second Quidditch match?


Potteraholic - Jan 12, 2008 12:04 pm (#2362 of 2575)

*** while reading Puck's question*** ***sees a copy of The Quibbler lying around*** Ooh, what new discoveries or intrigues has old Lovegood found out?

* waiting for Liz's response to her answer

I can't believe I got my question right. I wonder how many sizes of cauldrons there are?


Liz Mann - Jan 12, 2008 9:58 pm (#2363 of 2575)

I'm not sure now why I gave that question.


PatPat- Jan 13, 2008 1:02 am (#2364 of 2575)

Oh, sure. My internet goes down for a day and I get skipped. Aren't I supposed to be after PAH?! I mean I know I was losing dreadfully, but to skip me completely?

Puck - Jan 13, 2008 1:26 am (#2365 of 2575)

**falls over after seeing I got two answers correct in a row

*spots a crumpled piece of paper on floor under chair*

*stands up holding an autographed photo of Lockhart**

It's okay, Patpat, you can have my question.

I thought my turn came up again a little too quickly.


Potteraholic - Jan 13, 2008 6:34 am (#2366 of 2575)

I didn't even bother consulting my own chart when I updated it after my turn was done. Just goes to show you what can happen if I try to do anything technical before I've had my first cup of coffee. So, everyone, please disregard the chart in post #2362 and use this chart instead:

* waiting for Liz's response to her answer
* waiting for her answer to Liz's question.

Liz, does PatPat get a new question or does she just answer the one that you asked Puck? PatPat, what do you want to do?

Edited to add: Any Five Worders who are checked into St. Mungo's, here's a note I got from Finn regarding posting the recently completed story: "Sorry -- I've been at school the entire day (and last night too -- slept over). I'll be home tonight and will get everything done if I'm not too exhausted from being at school for 36 straight hours. Feel free to pass this along, just to confirm to everyone I haven't forgotten." Done!


Liz Mann - Jan 13, 2008 2:39 pm (#2367 of 2575)

Ooops! *slaps forehead* Sorry, PatPat. *hugs*

Okay, PatPat's question is: The poison from Norbert's bite turns Ron's hand which colour?

I also made some oat biscuits today! Yummy!

Do I ever eat anything healthy?

**makes Archie do the washing up** He must learn to do housework.


PatPat- Jan 13, 2008 7:40 pm (#2370 of 2575)

***hugs*** back to Liz. No problem! Actually it works out better because I would have gotten the one you gave Puck and I had no idea!

This one I think I know. Is it green?

My color is grey

And, yes, PAH, the grey looks right now!

***takes Cadbury's from azi*** Thanks!! Yum!


Potteraholic - Jan 13, 2008 8:12 pm (#2371 of 2575)

azi - Jan 13, 2008 9:33 pm (#2372 of 2575)

Oh, Archie is a giant pygmy puff. He accidentally got enlarged somehow and I don't *think* we ever made him smaller.

**munches on salad** See, I do eat properly.


Liz Mann - Jan 13, 2008 10:27 pm (#2373 of 2575)

Yes, it is green, and I rolled a four.

Okay, so it is Puck's turn now, right? Same question as before.

Ooh, I must remember that "zero calories charm" Good Evans. I just wish I could have used it before I ate all those profiteroles the other day! Does anyone know where Puck went? ***wondering when she will tell us the answer to her question*** I found some paints on the shelf in the hall. I'm going to join Ticker and G.E. and do some painting. ***conjures up a vast assortment of paint brushes***

Liz Mann - Jan 15, 2008 6:34 pm (#2380 of 2575)

Can I borrow one of your brushes too, PAH, and some gold paint? I want to draw a huge lightning bolt. (And a tiny Umbridge below it. Heh heh.)


Potteraholic - Jan 15, 2008 8:24 pm (#2381 of 2575)

Help yourself to any paint and brushes you want, Liz. I can always conjure up some more! I think I'll draw some centaurs charging towards Umbridge!


Puck - Jan 16, 2008 5:41 pm (#2382 of 2575)

Had to go back and look at what the question was. I still don't know the answer.

How about that one that "tickles", just as a guess.

I think you have it, azi.

Can I borrow a paintbrush too, PAH? I'm not much of an artist but I'd like to paint Fred **sniff** and George flying away from Umbridge and Hogwarts. With Peeves throwing them a salute. ***Hands PAH some Hershey's kisses in exchange for the paintbrush***


Potteraholic - Jan 17, 2008 3:32 am (#2387 of 2575)

Potteraholic - Jan 17, 2008 2:49 pm (#2389 of 2575)

Puck, did I say wand? I meant... knitting needle! With my collection, there's more than meets the eye! The odd bamboo one that I have, with a green bead on top, is working undercover. Shhh! Don't let the healers know!


Puck - Jan 17, 2008 3:18 pm (#2390 of 2575)

Liz Mann - Jan 18, 2008 5:45 pm (#2393 of 2575)

Azi, I'm so sorry, it was Harry who put the fire out with his hat. He was paired with Seamus and Ron with Hermione.

PAH, your turn and your opportunity to take first place: How does Professor McGonagall demonstrate her skills for the first years' Transfiguration class? (First lesson when she gave them the 'talking to'.)


azi - Jan 18, 2008 5:47 pm (#2394 of 2575)

Oh no worries, I'd be worried if I was perfect and got every question right.

**hugs Archie for warmth** Horrible weather outside eh?


Potteraholic - Jan 18, 2008 8:26 pm (#2395 of 2575)

Okay, let’s see. I know it’s different than what happened in the movie, where McGonagall was a cat sitting on the desk when Harry and Ron walked in late and then she transformed into her tartan-clad self. But that was the movie.

In the book, what did she change into? No, wait, she didn’t transform into anything. She changed her desk into a … pig? I think that’s it. Yeah, I’m pretty sure she changed her desk into a pig and then back into a desk again. McG giving the class the 'talking to'. I love that she doesn’t suffer fools gladly. Go McG!

Liz Mann - Jan 19, 2008 2:01 pm (#2396 of 2575)

You're absolutely right, PAH! I rolled a five and you have taken the lead and passed the three quarter point.

PatPat, you and Puck are currently tied last. This is your chance to take third place.

What mark did Flitwick confide to Hermione that she had got in her Charms exam? (When she was trying to tail Snape. Hint: It's more than 100%. )


Good Evans - Jan 19, 2008 3:20 pm (#2397 of 2575)

**humms happily to self as continues doodling** - I've just drawn a moustache on Umbridge !


Puck - Jan 19, 2008 5:43 pm (#2398 of 2575)

I always suspected that Dolores waxed.

Well, at least I'm tied for last instead of sitting there alone.


PatPat- Jan 19, 2008 8:52 pm (#2399 of 2575)

Glad to be of service, Puck.

You may overtake me this time because I am not sure. Hermione always gets weird scores like 350%. This time I think it was something like 120% but I'm not positive. However that's what I will go with. 120%.

***resumes painting but knocks over can of paint.***



Liz Mann - Jan 20, 2008 12:03 am (#2400 of 2575)

It was 112%. J.K. favouring the number 12 again.

Well, Puck, you may well overtake PatPat. Your question: Which Hogwarts student was described as being "almost as stupid as he was mean"?

A flowery bonnet?

Eurgh, I'm stuck in my study doing work. It's not going well!

Oh darn, Puck. If it's azi's turn now, then that means, it's my turn next. ***yawn*** I'm a bit tired from all that painting. I think I'll take a nap. Can someone wake me up when it's my turn? Thanks!

**bangs head against wall** Is there a way to magically make 1100 words appear to fill 8 pages of writing? *sigh* I have to hand in a draft chapter of my dissertation tomorrow and they gave a limit of 800 words for the first chapter (Introduction and Lit. Review, which I am over as it's just a guide) but you have to hand in at least 8 pages. Even with 2 1/2 pages of references I'm still only on 6!

**continues banging head against wall** (at least I'm in a dreary study, so that the collage won't be ruined. )


Puck - Jan 21, 2008 2:41 am (#2408 of 2575)

Wait, they tell you it has to be at least at pages, but then set a maximum of 800 words? Okay, they belong in St. Mungo's.


azi - Jan 21, 2008 3:11 am (#2409 of 2575)

Tis true...tis true. I checked with my supervisor it was right! Even if you wrote one of the other chapters, which are around 2000 words, it still doesn't equate to 8 pages! Only half a page to go now (I started on Theory and Methods, lol!). Haven't seen 3am for a while!

Good thing I had a nap with Archie earlier this evening.


Good Evans - Jan 21, 2008 12:52 pm (#2410 of 2575)

azi, hope you managed to finish your dissertation draft chapter, despite the boggling directions! It seems like your professor is as good with numbers as old Jo is!

For all Five Worders, past and present, the latest story in the FFF's Potty Game thread (Story 60) is finished! Take a look! A new story will be starting sometime today. It will be a short one (about 160 posts) and will close out Potty Game: Five Words (Vol V)! Maybe I'll see you there?

**picks up feather duster and starts removing cobwebs from the ward**

Hello? **listens for echo**

. . . . . .

Sure is quiet in here.


azi - Jan 23, 2008 9:42 pm (#2413 of 2575)

It is quiet! **offers everyone rice pudding** Ground rice, whole milk (none of that reduced fat stuff for me, thank you! ), topped with golden syrup in a spiral shape with hundreds and thousands.

I did finish my work, at 3.30am! Don't worry, being a student I can catch up on sleep pretty much any day of the week. Except tomorrow, I have to be at campus for 8.45am.

**yawns and snuggles with Archie**


Puck - Jan 23, 2008 10:35 pm (#2414 of 2575)

See my comments about rice pudding on the chat thread.


Potteraholic - Jan 25, 2008 12:13 am (#2415 of 2575)

***wondering where Liz went to because we still have a game to finish, don't we?*** Seriously, I hope everything's okay with you, Liz.


Liz Mann - Jan 25, 2008 11:33 pm (#2416 of 2575)

Oops! Sorry guys, I don't know why I didn't respond.

Anyway, yes a flowery bonnet is correct, azi. You move forward four spaces.

PatPat - What colour are the new knickerbockers that Dudley wears at Smelting?


Potteraholic - Jan 26, 2008 1:12 am (#2417 of 2575)
Umm, Liz, it's my turn!


Potteraholic - Jan 26, 2008 11:12 am (#2418 of 2575)

***waking up from my nap because someone set off an alarm of some sort somewhere***

Okay, Liz, I'm going to answer the question which you originally asked PatPat, in case you decide to keep it the same. Dudley’s knickerbockers are: orange? I think the whole kit included a maroon coat with tails, a straw hat, and a stick for hitting each other with? I remember thinking ages ago that Gryffindor’s colors of red and gold were very similar to Smelting’s maroon and orange. Gold is my color.

***going off to have some ***

Liz Mann - Jan 26, 2008 6:33 pm (#2419 of 2575)

*shakes head* What is wrong with me lately?

Orange is correct. You moved forward two spaces.

NOW it's PatPat's turn. Where was the hotel Harry and the Dursleys stayed in while trying to escape the letters?


PatPat- Jan 26, 2008 8:25 pm (#2420 of 2575)

hmmm. Something like cokeworth? Yeah I think that's right. My color is grey.


Potteraholic - Jan 26, 2008 11:27 pm (#2421 of 2575)

Woo hoo! A lucky deuce! You know Liz, as I look at your avatar, I am reminded of Dudley's Smeltings uniform because of the colors: the orange in the background and the maroon of the desk. But that's where the similarities between Smeltings and your avatar end!

Liz Mann - Jan 28, 2008 6:54 pm (#2422 of 2575)

Lol! The avatar is really like a dog version of me a lot of the time. I do tend to slump forward and stare. I'll probably end up needing glasses eventually.

It is indeed Cokeworth, PatPat. You move forward five spaces.

Here's the current positions of the players on the board: PAH is in the lead, just over three-quarters of the way around the board and with thirteen spaces until the end; azi is on the three-quarter point with with sixteen left; PatPat is almost at the halfway point with thirty one spaces left; Puck is just over a quarter of the way with thirty six spaces left.

Azi could still overtake PAH and win the game. And Puck could still overtake PatPat for third place. We'll play until we have a winner.

Puck, your next question: What does Harry not put on his plate at the start-of-term feast?

*starts drawing a life-like and life-sized picture of Ron on the wall*


Puck - Jan 28, 2008 7:25 pm (#2423 of 2575)

Ummm, no idea. Some kind of Haggis?


PatPat- Jan 29, 2008 12:47 am (#2424 of 2575)

LOL, Puck! I actually think I know this one. I think it was peppermint humbugs whatever those are. Not sure why I put that in white since Puck already guessed. Just seemed like the right thing to do!

Puck - Jan 29, 2008 2:45 am (#2425 of 2575)

Starting to think I should have re-read PS/SS instead of DH.

I'm lucky if I remember which kid has gym and who has to return a library book, never mid these tiny details. Still, it's fun to play.


Potteraholic - Jan 29, 2008 2:55 am (#2426 of 2575)

Puck, I'm with you on that question, Haggis sounded like a good thing to avoid, if you ask me. If the answer is peppermint humbugs, congrats to PatPat for knowing it! I didn't have a clue!

* waiting for Liz's response to her answer
* waiting for her answer to Liz's question.


Liz Mann - Jan 29, 2008 1:34 pm (#2427 of 2575)

PatPat is right, Puck, it is mint humbugs. Remember, there was a long list of things on the table, including, "for some strange reason, mint humbugs". Harry piles a bit of everything except the humbugs onto his plate.

Azi, your turn. You could overtake PAH for first place.

Fill in the blanks:

”Next morning in Defence Against the Dark Arts, while copying down different ways to treat werewolf bites, Harry and Ron were still discussing what they would do with a Philosopher's Stone if they had one. It wasn't until Ron said he'd _________ that Harry remembered about ______."

You don't need to be word perfect.


Puck - Jan 29, 2008 1:42 pm (#2428 of 2575)

Sure, this one I know. I just never seem to know the answers to my questions.

**curls up on a comfy chair and dozes off**


Liz Mann - Jan 29, 2008 9:51 pm (#2429 of 2575)

*covers Puck with a warm blanket and tucks a teddy bear under her arm*

Never mind Puck.


azi - Jan 29, 2008 10:23 pm (#2430 of 2575)

I have no idea, so I'll guess that Ron said he'd throw it at Snape's head and Harry remembered about Dumbledore. **shrug**


Puck - Jan 30, 2008 12:26 am (#2431 of 2575)

**rolls over and chuckles at the image of Ron chucking the stone at Snapes head**

I think that Ron said he would make a huge pile of gold, which reminded Harry of the Gringotts vault/break in.


Potteraholic - Jan 30, 2008 11:03 am (#2432 of 2575)

azi, I had no idea what the answer to your question was either. That's 3 questions in a row (PatPat's, Puck's and yours) that I drew a blank on. So it doesn't bode well for me to know the answer to my question coming up next!


Liz Mann - Jan 30, 2008 7:45 pm (#2433 of 2575)

He said that he would buy with his own Quidditch team, which reminded Harry of the upcoming match that Snape was going to referee. *hears the groans*

Azi, your question: What is Hagrid doing when Harry, Ron and Hermione run to find him after their exams are finished (when Harry realised about Fluffy)?


PatPat- Jan 30, 2008 11:55 pm (#2434 of 2575)

I didn't know that one either. I have no earthly idea how I remembered about the humbugs! But, Liz, I think it's PAH's turn!


azi - Jan 30, 2008 11:56 pm (#2435 of 2575)

Psst Liz, it's not my question.

I didn't have an groan moment at the previous answer. I haven't read PS in years!

**eats mascarpone ice cream to console self**


Potteraholic - Jan 31, 2008 1:20 am (#2436 of 2575)

Liz, look at the post before yours. Okay, as it's my turn, I'm going to answer the question. Maybe this is movie contamination, but it's all I've got: I think Hagrid is playing some music on a wooden flute and this makes Harry think that it takes music to calm Fluffy. My color is gold.

* waiting for Liz's response to her answer
* waiting for her answer to Liz's question.


Liz Mann - Jan 31, 2008 9:13 pm (#2437 of 2575)

I'm the one groaning! Sorry, guys, I've completely lost the plot lately. Maybe I should speak to the healers about examining my brain.

And PAH, that is movie contamination. He was shelling peas.

PatPat, I know it is DEFINITELY your turn now. Your question is how much does Harry pay the owl that delivers Hagrid's paper to the hut on the rock?


PatPat- Feb 1, 2008 12:08 am (#2438 of 2575)

Why oh why???? OK, let' think. I remember the scene vividly. The owl keeps poking Hagrid's jacket. Harry wakes up Hagrid. Hagrid says the owl wants to be paid. Give him _____ of the little bronze ones. How many??? ***sigh*** I'll say 3 knuts and be done with it. ***Goes off to have some hot chocolate for comfort***


Ticker - Feb 1, 2008 12:56 pm (#2439 of 2575)

**Wakes up with a start & wipes drool off the wall in front of her...**

Woah...nice drawing of Umbridge. Sorry to doze off like that. Wow, what a kink in my neck!

**Notices new muggle professor in the corner mumbling "I've always been able to make even 500 words fill 8 pages"...** Healer, ohhhh Healer... this one needs more lime jello.

The drawing of Ron reminds me of my dream the other night...

OK, I was in some dark old school building, going in & out of rooms with HRH. We were trying to find LV without being found. My wand was, for some reason, a 13 inch piece of bamboo which didn't appear to have anything inside it, but it worked - I just couldn't remember any spells. We ran in & out of rooms, dodging curses & DE's. Harry & Hermione split off leaving Ron & I in a split-level library (amazingly like the SS game) where we had to face Voldemrot. (Oops I meant to type Voldemort, but I think I'll leave it. ) Anyway, I'm pointing my wand at him, the only spell I've been able to remember this whole time is "Stupefy!", but now I have misgivings about its effectiveness. (Um, duh...) I'm getting ready for the green flash, when Ron yells something & LV disappears in a dark puff of smoke. Then he puts his hand on my shoulder & asks if I'm OK. I begin waking from my dream with the thought, "Wow. All this time I've thought I loved Harry, but its really Ron that I love... and it's OK because Harry & Hermione are going to get together."

**Snort, ha,ha,ha,ha,ha!...** Oh my... I can't stop laughing as I remember this. How strange the mind works. Please know that I am not in actuality (whatever that is in St. Mungos) in love with Ron, nor do I think Harry & Hermione would make a nice couple. The bamboo wand on the other hand might fit me well. **Snort, hee, hee!...**


Liz Mann - Feb 1, 2008 8:15 pm (#2440 of 2575)

LOL! Cool dream, Ticker. Ron always comes through in the end.

PatPat, it's five knuts. So close! Actually, I'm reading OotP at the moment and Hermione's only paying one knut. Price drop, student discount or J.K. Rowling's terrible head for numbers?

Puck, your turn now. Question: Quidditch referees have been known to vanish and turn up where?


Puck - Feb 2, 2008 5:00 am (#2441 of 2575)

I dunno, locked in a cabinet someplace?


Potteraholic - Feb 2, 2008 2:07 pm (#2442 of 2575)

Hmmm, could be. I thought it was some desert somewhere, the Gobi or the Sahara.

**settles down to watch The Lion King 3**

**sings along**


Liz Mann - Feb 3, 2008 10:52 pm (#2444 of 2575)

No, I'm sorry Puck, PAH is right, it was in the Sahara desert.

Azi, another chance to regain first place: When Harry moves into Dudley's second bedroom, he's looking at all the old/broken things in there. There is a cage that once held a parrot which Dudley swapped at school for what?

*joins in watching The Lion King 3*


azi - Feb 3, 2008 11:12 pm (#2445 of 2575)

Black will guess an air rifle.

I really haven't read PS in years...


PatPat- Feb 4, 2008 1:59 am (#2446 of 2575)

Wow! These questions are tough! ***slices a piece of chocolate cake and offers the rest around***


Puck - Feb 4, 2008 3:29 am (#2447 of 2575)

Yes, please, Patapat. I didn't know there's a Lion King 3!

**curls up under a blanket to watch**


azi - Feb 4, 2008 12:32 pm (#2448 of 2575)

It's from Timon and Pumba's perspective, Puck. And therefore hilarious.

**gratefully accepts chocolate cake**


Puck - Feb 4, 2008 1:47 pm (#2449 of 2575)

Ahh, we call that movie Lion King 1 1/2.


Liz Mann - Feb 4, 2008 9:28 pm (#2450 of 2575)

We do here too. Most people probably call it Lion King 3 though.

An air rifle is correct, azi! I rolled a three which means you are currently tied for first place with PAH.

PAH, your chance to get ahead again: Neville Longbottom says that his great-uncle once pushed him off the end of which pier?
