I'm not sure we have time for gradually, Julia. We're close to 1,600 words already. So I'm speeding things up a touch...

There's still Sluggy's invite to Sev to write. We can go over 22 more posts a bit, but let's try to wrap things up as soon as possible. Potty Game: Five Words (Vol. XV) - Page 24 2134391180 Potty Game: Five Words (Vol. XV) - Page 24 2695074146 Potty Game: Five Words (Vol. XV) - Page 24 1616972373


EDIT: Hmmm... Euphoric Sluggy and Sev's invite might need more than 100 words. Better make it 200 words... I'll change the 'posts left' update, but we should be judicious with our words/word choice. Thanks! Potty Game: Five Words (Vol. XV) - Page 24 2752390508

Sorry I missed out on a potential posting spree, PAH. My internet at home has been a bit dodgy lately and it's been difficult to connect.

I'm inserting 'gleefully' in front of the 'to' in Julia's post, then inserting 'Skipping over' in front of the 'to' she ended her post with. The sentence will read:

Go on then, Julia. here's your chance. Potty Game: Five Words (Vol. XV) - Page 24 2222139670 (Or anything the next poster fancies.) Whatever it takes to get to the invite, and then... the story can be finished! bounce

I thought he would talk to them in this manner.

that ended when he tweaked                

Okay, the tweaking of something is in! Potty Game: Five Words (Vol. XV) - Page 24 1003735042 Sluggy seems pretty euphoric by now: a big wink to McGonagall, tapping his feet, twirling his arms, skipping over to Lily and Sev, singing, and now tweaking something. I'd say Lily was pretty convinced by now and starts talking to Sluggy soon, and pops the question. Potty Game: Five Words (Vol. XV) - Page 24 2222139670 (Any more 'euphoric' behavior from Sluggy, and Lily might think their potion was too potent. Remember, we wrote that she was concerned that this potion would harm Sluggy [updates #7 to #8 for anyone who forgot/missed that section].

his nose and bowed deeply.

Should there be a word to follow 'recitative'? I'm not sure, but it doesn't sound quite right to me. I would have added one, but thought I'd check first whether others thought it was needed or not.

The pair bowed in return                

Verity, when I first saw 'recitative', I figured it was a noun, like how 'narrative' can be a noun. When I checked the online Merriam-Webster dictionary definition of 'recitative' before posting my words, I found:
noun \ˌre-sə-tə-ˈtēv, ˌres-tə-\ Definition of RECITATIVE: a rhythmically free vocal style that imitates the natural inflections of speech and that is used for dialogue and narrative in operas and oratorios and elsewhere: a recitative is a narrative song I figure the Oxford English dictionary has a similar definition. Potty Game: Five Words (Vol. XV) - Page 24 464751818

So I figured I didn't need to use 'song' and would save up on a word. Potty Game: Five Words (Vol. XV) - Page 24 2752390508

Spoiler:
Maybe Lily's gushing about the Great Hall prompts Sluggy to mention the decorations at his party later? Giving Lily a way to ask for the invite for Sev?

how tightly she grasped Severus'                

Hmmm... was not sure what Lily was meant to be noticing with the hand movement, so hope what I have works. I had thought of it as Lily actively seeking Sev's hand for support, or in solidarity, before taking the plunge, so to speak.

On with the story... we're almost at the end! bounce (And maybe we'll do it under budget? Potty Game: Five Words (Vol. XV) - Page 24 2222139670)

Yes PAH, I have three break duties every ten day cycle, and I have an after school activity once a week (starting in two weeks). That's all my student contact for now, but there will be more contact as we develop the program.
