Hey, I found a key. Key I wonder what this opens. *goes around trying every lock with the key*


Emily - May 24, 2004 10:49 pm (#1202 of 2965)

(I am trying to sleep when I hear a key in the lock): Hey! What are you doing?! Oh, you found the key to my room that I lost! Thank you! Did I hear there was a Twister game? I'm in! *hastily puts foot on green and hand on yellow*

Wow Sep, that's a very nice clarinet! *wink* Though if I do say so myself, clarinets aren't my favorite instrument. (I play flute)


wormsé - May 25, 2004 1:02 am (#1203 of 2965)

Oh, Istari! Those are such wonderful presents... the umbrella will come in especially handy, considering it's raining quite hard here at the moment! Thank you!!

Hey Istari! I have a surprise for you!

*voice turns to the voice of a infomercial guy*

It holds anything and everything! It's stylish and easy to clean, just vacuum! Now throw away those ugly Santa-Clause-present-bags (he needs em' anyway!) and rush to your nearest dealer, Sabby, for your bon-e-fide Mary Poppins Carpet Bag! All bags are nontransferable and there are no refunds.

I wanna play! I wanna play!! Rushes onto the floor with pizza in hand. Just don't knock me over or my new turtle shell won't let me get up!


Viola Intonada - May 25, 2004 1:07 am (#1205 of 2965)

Septentrion, you will play such beautiful music on your clarinet, it will be like magic. wink, wink. You will have to join our little music group we have. Speaking of which, I think we should have a concert right after the Twister tournament.

Marè, I didn't get any soot in your ear making it hard to hear, did I? Marè, Marè, CAN YOU HEAR ME?


A-is-for-Amy - May 25, 2004 2:27 am (#1206 of 2965)

For those of you missing the elephants, they left a large "present" on the floor of my room.... anyone got a broom?

*Rubs ears with a nearby cloth*

O wait, I get it! O you look lovely all on that twister board, who said that about never playing it before?? It is so much fun! Am I the only one calling the colours? Well okay then... left hand on pink!

And Amy, there might be a broom in the cabinet in the hall on the second floor, but the cabinet is only there when it is snowing in Kopenhagen when at the same three St. Mungo's residences do the tango... I think.

Amy, there’s a broom cupboard off the main hall... full of cleaning supplies, a copy of "Hélas, j'ai Transfiguré mes Pieds"... & several empty wrappers of Forges Fruity Flumps.... just don't ask how I found the cupboard *tries to look innocent but fails miserably*

Ticker... thanks for the Middle Earth Sunshine.... waving it about me here.... so pretty & bright Take that, you bad dementors....

Marie... emmm, that wasn't you on the radio.... oh dear.... so then.... who was the mystery commentator?

I miss Stampy... he was stinky... but fun.... he got rid of the Toad Lady simply by glaring at her.... but I think the clip clop noises I made with my tongue might have helped... hee hee!

Lindsay.. HAPPY BIRTHDAY! (albeit belated.. but in St Mungos that doesn't matter)

ooooh Twister.... *points wand at self* concorticus bendicus... hee hee... think that might help ... what colour are we on.... what do you mean thats cheating... oooh... *Fawkes wobbles towards twister board & soon gets 'tangled' up in the game* Oooh guys... my arms have gone all funny..... very jelly like... & as for my legs.... *wibble wobble* oh dear.... now I know how Stretch Armstrong feels..... emmm, Madame Poppy... a little help! Please!


Ticker - May 25, 2004 2:54 pm (#1209 of 2965)

You're most certainly welcome Fawkes. I thought it might come in handy for you.

LINDSAY! Happy Birthday!!!! Wow! I have just the present for you! It's special bed-pan polish. It turns lime green when we have a quidditch match. You know, I probably should have got enough for the whole team... But I really miss playing with you & it's your birth-week, so ... Oh! I almost forgot! Here's your share of the winnings from the last match. (Passes over a bag of Japanese crackers.) Uh, I ate all the little orange ones. They're my favorite.... but I left you all the white ones, the dried peas & the fish!

*Finds 3 residents doing the Tangle on the Twister Mat & wonders if it's snowing in Denmark*


Viola Intonada - May 25, 2004 3:47 pm (#1210 of 2965)

*Puts left hand on pink, accidently hits Liz in the eye with elbow*

Oh, sorry Liz, is your eye okay? How very clumsy of me.

I'M BLIND! I'VE GONE BLIND! *stumbles around and accidently knocks over the others who are playing Twister, a book case, the pile of bedpans, two Healers and the jello, which starts crawling across the floor*

*slowly opens eyes* Oh, okay, I'm not blind after all. *turns and sees the jello* Oh my gosh, it's ALIVE!


Fawkes Forever - May 25, 2004 5:38 pm (#1212 of 2965)

emmm, that would be me....


dobbyiscool - May 25, 2004 6:41 pm (#1213 of 2965)

Wow, it's been a while. I went to the circus this weekend in St. Paul, MN, and saw some elephants, but they were juveniles, not adults like the ones you all had.

FYI, I can count, 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7. See? I can count.

Anyway, anyone whose birthday I've missed, and anyone I accidently left in Japan, gets a toy from the circus! *Passes out glow in the dark swords* Pst...if you twist the handle off, you can stick your wand in it, and then stick the handle back on, it's a hiding spot.

Who do we play next?


Ticker - May 25, 2004 7:32 pm (#1214 of 2965)
Edited by May 25, 2004 12:47 pm

Could somebody please help Fawkes? Somebody who's not as afraid of jello as myself?

Dobby - I think the next match is the championship, but no one seems to know where it is going to be held & against whom. We get to play because we are undefeated, but the other teams are still duking it out for the honor of playing us. When they're done, we will know more. You just focus on hitting the bludger. Don't worry about keeping score, OK?


VeronikaG - May 25, 2004 7:39 pm (#1215 of 2965)

Let's see if I have a present for Lindsay. Don't know much about your preferences, though. I have a whole pile of musical sneakoscopes in one of my drawers, you can have one of them. They take requests, and glow lime green. And here's a bag of chocolate frogs. I also found this cloak, which is kind of stylish. Even have the price tag on, 12 galleons. Not my color, so you can have it if you like it. I wonder if it's magical, but I'm not sure.


Hermionefan(#1) - May 25, 2004 8:34 pm (#1216 of 2965)

I don't remember if I said happy birthday or not Lindsay, and I don't know your preferences either, so happy birthday and here, I bought you some socks. See, they massage your feet whenever you click your toes together. I bought you two different colors so dobby doesn't think that you're insane or anything like that.


wormsé - May 25, 2004 8:41 pm (#1217 of 2965)

Wow!!! Japanese crackers, a cloak, and socks!! I really like these socks, Hermy... they feel really nice on my feet!


prof sprout - May 25, 2004 10:05 pm (#1218 of 2965)

Here Fawkes. I'll save you from the jello.

No one knows the place of the championships yet, until they are ready for the match, to prevent people from sabotaging the stadium. The ministry puts a bunch of port keys around and they will take you there.


PyroGrl - May 25, 2004 10:06 pm (#1219 of 2965)

Hey Dobby is it just me or are you missing the number four? Here I'll show you. *holds out four fingers* F-O-U-R, four. Get it?

But check out my counting skills: 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,...7-7-7-7-seven...

Pyro! Wake up! Join the festivities! *pulls sleeping Pyro up off bed* Holy cow! You look terrible! You don't want to play! Now you lie here and go to sleep. You need your rest. And I don't want to hear a peep from your room!

Post 1220!


Hermionefan(#1) - May 26, 2004 1:12 am (#1221 of 2965)

Gr, I missed the benchmark post or whatever you want to call it again! Well, I suppose I could always delete one of my posts, because then this would be the right post... no, I want do that. That'd be cheating. Oh well.


Ticker - May 26, 2004 2:11 am (#1222 of 2965)
Edited by May 25, 2004 7:12 pm

Yes, well Hermy you missed #1222 as well. Better luck next time.

(Besides deleting posts doesn't alter the number anyway. )


B]Marie E.[/B] - May 26, 2004 3:39 am (#1223 of 2965)

Happy Birthday, Lindsay! How lovely that you share a birthday with my little Lexie. I didn't know what to give you , so I got a gift card for Honeydukes. Hope that's alright.

Is the twister game over? I really need to come out of my room more often!


septentrion - May 26, 2004 8:41 am (#1224 of 2965)

thanks for the score Viola, I'm going to rehearse, the band must play perfectly to celebrate our victory (no doubt about it).

I had a try on my flying bedpan but ooooh I suffer from vertigo. Yet I'm ok for the cheers.


The Great Abbycadabra - May 26, 2004 9:07 am (#1225 of 2965)

Hey, I'm having a Friends moment. Remember when Ross wanted to play bagpipes for Monica and Chandler's wedding? He was totally butchering "Celebration". It was soo awesome!! Anyhoo, I think I'll play that for our Quidditch victory. What do you guys think?


Liz Mann - May 26, 2004 4:04 pm (#1226 of 2965)



Fawkes Forever - May 26, 2004 4:26 pm (#1227 of 2965)

Thanks Prof Sprout *checks limbs to make sure they are all there*

You all have to admit... I'm the undisputed Twister Champion of St Mungo’s.... I mean.... I was able to touch all colours at once... how cool is that! *manic gleam in eye*

Abby... take it away!

Edited by May 26, 2004 1:10 pm

Stupid, stupid, stupid... I don't pay attention at all do I? I keep missing these numbers. Grr, double grr.

I'll join that band/ orchestra thing. I can do violin and piano. Or if you wanted a bad voice, I could sing.


Emily - May 26, 2004 9:38 pm (#1229 of 2965)

Don't worry, we've got 1234 coming up... and I want it!

Abby, since I'm only a cheerleader anyway, can I play with you? I've never heard bagpipes with a flute, but it should sound good, and if it doesn't, it should scare the other team.


Sabotage - May 27, 2004 1:44 am (#1230 of 2965)

Has anyone seen Istari? Or am I just missing her posts?


PyroGrl - May 27, 2004 2:01 am (#1231 of 2965)

I'll sing for our celebration!!

What's the celebration??


Viola Intonada - May 27, 2004 2:02 am (#1232 of 2965)
Edited by May 26, 2004 7:03 pm

Oh no! I hope we didn't leave Istari somewhere.

They tried to force feed me lime jello today. But I refused and managed to escape it. Whew!

Did everyone in the "music group" get there music? I think we should start off with the Hogwarts School Song, what do you think?


Pigwidgeon - May 27, 2004 2:38 am (#1233 of 2965)

Ooo Ooo Ooo! Did someone say "music"? Can I join? Huh? Can I? Can I? Please? I can sing ....


*crash* *shatter* *winces of intense pain*

Oooooops.... on second thought, is there a spare triangle?


Sabotage - May 27, 2004 3:06 am (#1234 of 2965)

OOOOOOhhhhhh! Can I be in the music group? I can play the tambourine! Or the cymbals! I like making the loud noises with the cymbals!


Marè - May 27, 2004 7:39 am (#1235 of 2965)

*Tries to hand Pigwidgeon the triangle while trying to keep my ears covered*

Here you go dear, rock 'm away!


septentrion - May 27, 2004 12:33 pm (#1236 of 2965)

our band is growing fast....good ! I'm in with my wandy clarinet. Don't you mind if I haven't played for years ?


Liz Mann - May 27, 2004 1:36 pm (#1237 of 2965)

Bad luck, Emily, Sabby got post 1234.


Ticker - May 27, 2004 3:43 pm (#1238 of 2965)

*Picks up penny whistle with some trepidation, remembering the chaos that ensued last time.*

Viola's bow seems to work when you wave it. My penny whistle only works (magically speaking) when it's played. Sep, you may find that true for your clarinet as well. Finding the er, right tune can be - well... interesting.

OK so we have a bagpipe, a viola, a flute (or maybe 2-3), a triangle, a clarinet & a penny whistle. We need some brass I think. And maybe Elvis... whaddayathink?


VeronikaG - May 27, 2004 6:34 pm (#1239 of 2965)

How about a guitar? I can play magical guitar, remember?


septentrion - May 27, 2004 7:43 pm (#1240 of 2965)

yeah yeah yeah a guitar !


A-is-for-Amy - May 27, 2004 7:59 pm (#1241 of 2965)

I've still got my kazoo handy!


Hermionefan(#1) - May 27, 2004 8:17 pm (#1242 of 2965)

And can I join with piano or violin? Whichever, doesn't matter to me.


Acceber - May 28, 2004 2:01 am (#1243 of 2965)

Hermy-you can do violin, if you don't mind, since I only play piano. Or keyboard if no one feels like lugging in a baby grand .


Hermionefan(#1) - May 28, 2004 1:31 pm (#1244 of 2965)
Edited by May 28, 2004 6:32 am

Okay, violin it is!


Ticker - May 28, 2004 2:36 pm (#1245 of 2965)

We shall have quite an orchestra!


prof sprout - May 28, 2004 3:59 pm (#1246 of 2965)

Yay we are having a concert. I'm soo impressed. I didn't know we had such a diverse clan. I knew you were the best at Quidditch, but music. Good job.


Viola Intonada - May 28, 2004 5:03 pm (#1247 of 2965)

With all of these wonderful musicians, I think we will need a conductor! Any volunteers? We won't need a conductor for our first song, but we will need someone to sing the Hogwart's School song so we will know approximately when to end.

Remember everyone picks their favorite tune and plays along for the school song.

Btw, Ticker, just be careful about what you are thinking about when you play your penny-whistle, OK?


Emily - May 28, 2004 9:39 pm (#1248 of 2965)

Maybe Prof Sprout should be the conductor, to make it look like she's still 'in charge'. *wink*

Ooh, this is going to be so much fun! The Hogwarts School Song sounds good, and how about Hedwig's Theme? As long as we don't have to play Pomp and Circumstance, I'm good. (I've got to play it around 15 times in a row next week for graduation, and my arm is already falling off from the practices.)


Marie E. - May 28, 2004 11:31 pm (#1249 of 2965)

Can I play the cymbals? Purty please????




Viola Intonada - May 29, 2004 2:34 am (#1250 of 2965)

Since you asked so nicely Marie, you may play the cymbals. Just remember, don't put your nose in-between the cymbals, okay?

Excellent idea Emily, Prof. Sprout should be our conductor.

How about it Prof. Sprout, will you do it? Please...

*clears throat*

Have you reached a rainbow's end?
Did you find your pot of gold?
Ever catch a shooting star?
Tell me how high did you soar?

Ever felt like you were good
Just to find that you're great?
There's a magic that surrounds you.
It can lift you up and guide you on your way!

I can see it in the stars across the sky
Dreamt a hundred thousand dreams before
Now I finally realize
See I've waited all my life
For this moment to arrive
I believe in the impossible
If I reach deep within my heart
Over-come any obstacle
Won't let this dream fall apart
See I strive to be the very best.
Shine my light for all to see
'Cause anything is possible
When you belieeeeve!

See I've waited all my life
For this moment to arrive
Finally...I believe.
Love keeps lifting me higher...yeah...love keeps lifting me higher...I believe...

OK...there's my audition. Did I get the part as singer? Please say I did!!

So, what's the song I'm supposed to sing? Or songs...

Hogwarts, Hogwarts, hoggy warty Hogwarts
Teach us something please
Whether we be old and bald
Or young with scabby knees
Our heads could do with filling
With some interesting stuff
For now they're bare and full of air
Dead flies and bits of fluff
So teach us things worth knowing
Bring back what we've forgot
Just do your best, we'll do the rest
And learn until our brains all rot!

well, clarineta musicale

let's see if it works - yep, it works. Oh, there are people watching. ***blushing, looking away*** Euh, I know I was supposed to play but after I had a try, I think a little innocent charm on my instrument would make it more...melodious...for the benefit of everybody's ears.


prof sprout - May 29, 2004 3:01 pm (#1258 of 2965)

Oh, I would be honored. Thank you so much. Though I will admit I have no rhythm at all and have never conducted before.

PyroGrl - May 29, 2004 7:55 pm (#1262 of 2965)

I don't care how much you all protest but we are doing "I Believe".


Sabotage - May 30, 2004 3:57 am (#1263 of 2965)

Guys. I am confused. Why are we starting a band and not practicing for Quidditch? I see that I will have to organize you people!

*randomly rounds up people and shoves bedpans under their bottoms*

OK everyone! Fly!


PyroGrl - May 30, 2004 4:00 am (#1264 of 2965)

Let's leave bottoms out of this, Sabster. And we are practicing for bedpan Quidditch...just not right this moment. I'm confident that we can win.


Sabotage - May 30, 2004 4:04 am (#1265 of 2965)

We can't! Not without practice, practice and more practice!


A-is-for-Amy - May 30, 2004 4:32 am (#1266 of 2965)

Sabby seems to be channeling Oliver Wood! Maybe we should call and exorcist? The bedpans aren't a bad Idea, though! We can practice marching band style - but without the marching part!


Sabotage - May 30, 2004 5:09 am (#1267 of 2965)

AAAAHHH! *falls of bedpan, which continues to zoom around* Sabby, I'm a - , not a Quidditch player! And I have to practice for the band as well! *Rubs head*

*stumbles in with suitcase and collapses on floor* Okay, I've just got back and can't be bothered to read nearly forty posts. I've had too long a journey. I had to travel entirely in the Muggle way! No magic at all! AHHHHHH!

So anyway, can someone fill me in on what's been happening over the weekend?


Emily - May 31, 2004 6:33 pm (#1281 of 2965)

We started a band... can you play? Or was that before you left? Sorry.

Sabby's decided practicing Bedpan Quidditch is more important than practising music and is slamming bedpans under random people, so watch out.

I think that's it... this is St. Mungo’s, after all, how much are we supposed to do?


Liz Mann - May 31, 2004 8:24 pm (#1282 of 2965)

Sabby's right! Bedpan Quidditch is the most important thing in the world!! (But then, I'm the team captain, so I would say that, wouldn't I? )


Hermionefan(#1) - Jun 1, 2004 12:24 am (#1283 of 2965)

Yeah, but she's sticking bedpans under everyone! Is it right to force residents on bedpans when they don't even remember their own names?


Viola Intonada - Jun 1, 2004 2:33 am (#1284 of 2965)

Tonight is our concert, tomorrow we can practice. We have to have a little time off every now and then, or we might go insane. Oh, too late for that. I guess I will have to come up with another excuse... hmmm...think, think, hmm.....

Well, anyway, Pyro, that was lovely singing. Next song..."Abracadabra" by the Steve Miller Band. Unless someone has a better song.?? Anyone???


PyroGrl - Jun 1, 2004 3:00 am (#1285 of 2965)
Edited by May 31, 2004 8:14 pm

Abracadabra? Never heard of it...WAIT! I KNOW THE PERFECT SONG!!


I linger in the doorway
of alarm clock screaming monsters calling my name
let me stay
where the wind will whisper to me
where the raindrops as they're falling tell a story

in my field of paper flowers
and candy clouds of lullaby
I lie inside myself for hours
and watch my purple sky fly over me

don't say I’m out of touch
with this rampant chaos - your reality
I know well what lies beyond my sleeping refuge
the nightmare I built my own world to escape

in my field of paper flowers
and candy clouds of lullaby
I lie inside myself for hours
and watch my purple sky fly over me

swallowed up in the sound of my screaming
cannot cease for the fear of silent nights
oh how I long for the deep sleep dreaming
the goddess of imaginary light


Hermionefan(#1) - Jun 1, 2004 3:37 pm (#1286 of 2965)

Never heard of it, pyro. Never heard of that song.


Ticker - Jun 1, 2004 5:45 pm (#1287 of 2965)

Pyro, I love your singing! I don't know the melody on that one either, but as you can hear, it doesn't stop me from playing along.

*Floats above music stand on bedpan, playing penny whistle & thinking of purple skies & flying origami dragons....*

Wow! Did St. Mungo's re-paint the ceilings purple or did I play that?

*Neatly folded music takes shape of a flower & tosses itself to pyro*

Abra-dabra-ca-dabra....... Abracadabra.... Is that the one Viola?


VeronikaG - Jun 1, 2004 8:09 pm (#1288 of 2965)

I'm not on the quidditch team, I don't even have a bedpan! Please, can't you practice later? Most of the others in here aren't on the team either. It's so much fun with the music. *Does a loud solo on lime green guitar*


Liz Mann - Jun 1, 2004 8:14 pm (#1289 of 2965)

Practice will resume after the concert. *sits down to listen*


Acceber - Jun 1, 2004 10:11 pm (#1290 of 2965)

*plays piano enthusiastically, maybe a bit too enthusiastically, then looks worried* Yargh! We're all playing different tunes! No one knows the tune to pyro's song! Maybe we need a song we know? Or not, as this does sound pretty good. *plays away*


PyroGrl - Jun 1, 2004 11:02 pm (#1291 of 2965)

It's Imaginary by Evanescence.


Hermionefan(#1) - Jun 2, 2004 12:15 am (#1292 of 2965)

What oh what could we sing that everyone knows? Or maybe we could play something off of the Harry Potter soundtrack! And since there's no singing, pyro could just sort of hum in the background! Or she could dance!


Viola Intonada - Jun 2, 2004 2:28 am (#1293 of 2965)
Edited by Jun 1, 2004 7:30 pm

Yep, Ticker, that is the right one.

Well, since all of us are well versed in the HP songs. Let's play Hedwig's Theme next.

Are we ready?

Btw, Ticker, I love the redecorating you have done. Could you please think of some lovely butterflies the next time you play? Maybe some chocolate too.


Ticker - Jun 2, 2004 3:57 pm (#1294 of 2965)

Hmmmmmm... chocolate marshmallow owls swooping in to the tinkling Hedwig's theme,... sugar coated butterflies taking shape between cymbal crashes,... a golden foiled-wrapped chocolate snitch zipping around the orchestra refusing to be caught,...

Sorry Sabby, but I will not be fooled into eating lime jello... hey, wait a minute! Who are you really?!?! What are you doing with lime jello?!?! I thought you were one of us! Now you're staff? Nope, not a bite of anything you've got. I don't care if you say it's Honeydukes.

*Plays tune of a chocolate box enclosing Sabby.*

I'm afraid you'll have to eat your way out dear.


Emily - Jun 2, 2004 6:45 pm (#1295 of 2965)

Did someone say Honeydukes? Yum, I could do with some chocolate all this playing the wrong tune is making me hungry! *reaches for a bowl of chocolates topped with Sabby's evil lime jello*

Must... practise... quidditch... *walks mechanically out to the field, hops on a stolen bedpan, and starts lying, though is clueless because is normally only a cheer leader*

*1 hour later, jello starts wearing off, enough to think, but not enough to do anything about it* HELP! Sabby's sabatoging the band and making me play a sport! I'm not at all athletic! And she took away your (as far as I can tell (about 2 inches)) your only flute! SOMEBODY HELP ME!!!!!!!!


Liz Mann - Jun 2, 2004 7:17 pm (#1296 of 2965)

Don't worry, Sabby, we'll practice after the concert.

Hey, just a thought - when's the last time anyone saw Lenka??? Or Caitlin for that matter.

Emily - Jun 2, 2004 8:54 pm (#1298 of 2965)


Read as: I'm just as clueless as ever, so will someone please explain the previous post to me.


PyroGrl - Jun 2, 2004 8:55 pm (#1299 of 2965)

The lyrics in the chorus of the song I just "sang" are "in my field of paper flowers and candy clouds of lullaby...etc" but Sabby keeps saying "purple flowers" and now it's getting very annoying.


Sabotage - Jun 2, 2004 11:27 pm (#1300 of 2965)

PURPLE!! Purple flowers!


Practice on the purple flower field.

I want to see it again! I have to wait until next week when my best friend's boyfriend comes home from holiday. We're all going together. I am tempted to see it before then, though, but I'll probably get sick of it if I don't space the viewings out a bit.

Abby, are you okay? *helps Abby up then notices that she fell on the bagpipe, which is now broken* Uh oh... *points in other direction* Hey, Abby, look, a flying pig! *grabs bagpipe while Abby isn't looking and runs*

Guys, the bagpipe's broken! Abby'll be devastated! We've got to fix it! Darn those Healers, why did they choose today to go round all the patients and take away any wands that were stolen back!

Here you guys go, don't be afraid I won't let that evil sugar-free stuff touch you. It should only be given to people who are sick, and can't have sugar, and that is definitely not you guys.

**Pours the contents of a bag of sugar in bowls for the residents**

That should give you enough energy to play for the concert and practice Quidditch. Here are some of my pure caffeine candies, well, not entirely pure -it does have sugar in it, I don't want anyone calling it "sugar-free". Surprised)


Hermionefan(#1) - Jun 4, 2004 6:54 pm (#1322 of 2965)

How about Scotch Tape combined with Super glue, Liz? Together they're bound to fix Abby's bagpipe!

That might work Hermy.

Woah! Sugar rush!

Your excitement is understandable, Pyro.

(*Whips out spello-tape, dropped by Ron on his last visit to St. Mungo's.* OK, OK... I was following them around like the obsessed freak that I am...)

Try this on the bagpipe. Superglue can be very scary.

In regards to today's event... I went. I saw. I felt the wind of a huge story whipping past me in 2 1/2 hours.

Hmmmmmmm, I expended so much energy being excited about the PoA movie, I believe I'll take you up on your sugar & caffeine offer Prof. Sprout. Ahhhhhh. What a day!

*Falls asleep reaching for the sugar bowl.*

If you really want it repaired to last, use Duct Tape!

Yes, Kip, duct tape has saved my day on many occasions, in fact Red Green is kind of my hero. B.T.W. “caffeine-free” are also on the “Words That Should Never Be Used” list.


Viola Intonada - Jun 5, 2004 3:17 am (#1330 of 2965)

Marie, that just goes to show that there are people who are actually more insane than we are!

Wait, before you fix Abby's bagpipes, let me consult my copy of "Magical Instrument Repair" by Gilderoy Lockhart. There has to be something in here that will help us. If not, Kip and Blast are right. Not much works better than Duct Tape, one of the few Wizarding World inventions that has been smuggled into the Muggle World without anyone really realizing it.

I thought I had scored more than that too, Liz. But I looked and last time I only had 80%. I can't believe no one beat that before, heehee. So, well, what can I say but, Way to go, Pyro!! Have some Abbyfetti! ,';',.;,'.;,.';, I'll just have to go change my name or go on a UK field trip or something. I will make it past 90% one day!!

Sure, Amy. I got sixteen cases of the nifty tartan-patterned duct tape. Help yourself! I also have some extra jarveys lying around, Ticker, if you'd like some of those.

Hey, Hermy! How are you?


Ticker - Jun 8, 2004 2:44 pm (#1346 of 2965)

Sure, the jarveys sound fun. You'll be relieved to know I took my mom's poodle back to her (in one piece). I just need to buy it a muzzle for when it stays here I guess. All yippin' night long!

Abby, I'll get confused if we have to start calling you Steve. But this is St. Mungo's...

Hermy, I'll back you up on the "cuz", just cuz (or cos) it's a fairly standard contraction of because - just don't let me catch you cuz-ing people out with it or we're both toast with Kip. (Side note: Ha! I've made it to a dozen contractions in 3 paragraphs!) It's (I can't (ha) stop!) good to see you're (hee, hee) still around.

Abby, write down a list of all the things on the quiz that you haven't ticked but is possible to do and do them one by one. (My score went up recently from the early sixties to 70%. )

Edit: I've just taken the test again and it's gone up to 72%.


Blast - Jun 8, 2004 10:17 pm (#1348 of 2965)

Is the concert over?


Viola Intonada - Jun 9, 2004 2:23 am (#1350 of 2965)

Yeah, it kind of ended when Abby passed out on her bagpipes. But I think we should have one at least once a month.

Actually Abby, you're score was higher, but we had to dock you some obsession points because for a couple of months you actually thought that your school work was more important than St. Mungo's. (How could you?!? sniff, sniff *gives a very hurt look, complete with puppy dog eyes*)

Hermione Fan, Why should you let not having anything to say prevent you from posting? I have never let it stop me.

Viola, I wasn't doing school work when I was on hiatus. Don't be silly, I never do school work. School just exhausted me, so I usually passed out (which I seem to do a lot at good ole St. Mungo's, don't I?) fairly early. I don't usually come online until fairly late at night. School is never more important than things involving HP!! For example, I skipped, er, was sick on the day SS came out. I even had a test that day.

And, Blast, I would agree that I'm more of a Bob. What's with the name Bob anyway? I love that name. I always have to put a Bob in my stories (one of my several odd signatures ). Well, I am from the Planet Bob after all. But, goodness knows I love Steve! Crikey!

Liz, I'll go write down the things on the obsession quiz that I need to do. That's a good idea. The problem with that quiz is that there are so many things that I do do that aren't on the quiz. For examples see the "You know you're too much of a fan" (or whatever the heck it's called ) thread on the main forum.

At any rate, the Twister game looked like a lot of fun, and the concert was a great idea. Sorry about your bagpipes, Abby, here... *sneaks brand new wand out of robes* Reparo! There! That should fix your bagpipes...maybe...

Ahhh, I'm back... got stuck in the 'leave me alone I'm watching PoA ward'... then I had a detour in the flip... 'how many posts did I miss on the forum ward... especially the PoA thread'

Soo tired... hmmm, cherry jello... that looks tasty.... *slobber*

The problem with that quiz is that there are so many things that I do do that aren't on the quiz.

Yeah. They don't even ask things like, "Do you drive your friends and family crazy talking about Harry Potter?" or "Do you think about Harry Potter 24/7?" And they haven't updated it to include questions on the PoA movie.


PyroGrl - Jun 10, 2004 5:49 pm (#1362 of 2965)

Would my mark go up to 98 or down to 96??? (I ROCK! LOL)

I'm very ill and Fisherman's Friend Lemon Flavored deprived. I need (do not kill me) a Healer to give me Pepper-Up Potion.


Viola Intonada - Jun 11, 2004 3:56 am (#1363 of 2965)

Blast, LOL, you are more than welcome to join us on guitar, no matter which Eric Clapton you play like, and thank you *blushes*. The gathering was tons of fun.

Whew, Abby, I was a little concerned there for a while. Glad to hear you have your priorities straighter than I thought you did. But we will have to have a little talk about which is more important, sleep or St. Mungo's.

Fawkes, NNOOOOOOOooooo don't eat the jello!

Welcome back Istari.

*sits down to watch Abby try to remove tartan duct tape as it gets stuck on each body part that she used to try to relieve the previous body part from the tape*

Fawkes, just put the jello down and back away slowly...

This thread is kinda slow at the moment, don't you think? Usually when I come here there's lots of posts waiting for me. Lately whenever I come here there's only one.

Could someone do me a favour? My site needs some MAJOR promotion. I tried emailing The Leaky Cauldron to tell them about my review of PoA, but I didn't get a reply. I never do get one from them. I'm not sure if they receive my emails or not, because the first time I ever emailed them they replied (and quite quickly), but not since. I was wondering if someone could email them for me (about the review at http://www.hogwartsfansite.co.uk/Review.htm ) and see if it gets through. You can get the email address if you go to The Leaky Cauldron and click on 'contribute'.


A-is-for-Amy - Jun 11, 2004 3:34 pm (#1365 of 2965)

I'm not sure about how all this stuff works, but you might try joining or starting a web ring... where a bunch of sites get together and have links to each other and promote each other's sites, etc. Just a thought!


Liz Mann - Jun 11, 2004 8:34 pm (#1366 of 2965)

Ugh...I was supposed to go to one of those tanning bed things yesterday...good thing I didn't. It was raining and I would've gotten pneumonia again. (I have to ride my bike over there.)

Sheet-things?!? *Quickly looks up self* Has no hope of release... Yay! *Quickly looks up everyone else* It's okay pyro, it looks like everyone here can't be released. But wait! *gasps* This sheet says "can be released soon" but the name is all splotchy, I think someone cried over it or something, and I don't know who it means. How could anyone be sane enough to leave? We've gotta help them become insane once we figure out who it is!


Pinky - Jun 12, 2004 3:44 am (#1372 of 2965)

Wait.... that's MY name! THAT would explain why the men in white coats dragged me away a month ago and have been subjecting me to many tests ever since. However, to prove my insanity, I have just read 450 posts on this thread over the last 4 hours. I have missed so much. Quick - somebody do something to make sure I've nullified my chances to be released!

At least Pinky seems less sane.

Wow... I've been away 7 days on a cruise (Very Happy!) and only had 44 posts! What's wrong with you people?!?

We have all been in the "Can't post now, watching "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban" Ward".

Pinky, you are truly insane if you read all 450 posts of which you were behind.

Oh, I almost forgot. I was listening to the radio today, and they advertised a "Duct Tape Festival" in my area today. Complete with a Duct Tape Parade. I immediately thought of St. Mungo's and Abby's bagpipes.


Pinky - Jun 13, 2004 2:34 am (#1383 of 2965)

Duct Tape festival sounds like fun.... oh & a new sub.... woohooo World Cup here we come... even if I am just a cheerleader....

Oh Pinky, I borrowed some extendable ears from the Weasleys..... & as I was walking past the healers office I 'tripped' & well the ear flew out of my hands & just happened to stick to the door, & the other part just happened to be in my ear & well ummm, I couldn't help but over hear them discussing your progress, & to use an exact quote..... they said you were, "Nuttier than a double nut choco sundae", so I think you'll be remaining with us for a lot longer!

Hmmmm, ice cream...... *slobber*

I think it's playing *listens hard to the glingle glingle music* yes indeed... Hedwig’s theme....

Oh it's just pulled up outside... *gets very excited* it has writing on the side.... 'Weasleys Wonderous Whippys' .... Emm, guys, I think its Fred & George! *grabs Pinky & Hermy* Woohoo come on girlies let’s get some ice creams .... *runs outside*

Oh look, Fred & George have got Ron working in the van.... he's the ice cream man Hello Ron... three Double Nut Choco Sundaes please.... emmm has anyone actually got any money? *grins at Ron* emmm, be right back... *runs into common room & digs round couch for any loose change*

Who knows, Liz?

Here Fawkes, here's a bag I found. It's big, and heavy. I wonder who it belongs to? *Opens bag**Nearly faints* Look at all the Galleons... well looks like we have enough to buy that ice cream.


Acceber - Jun 14, 2004 8:35 pm (#1395 of 2965)

Ice cream? If we have that many Galleons, then I'll have: one scoop of chocolate chip cookie dough, then a scoop of mint chocolate chip, one scoop of vanilla, a scoop of peanut butter all in a sugar cone, covered with hot fudge sauce and chocolate jimmies. Thank you very much.

On the topic of food, I just ate my Canary Cream and I'm a hummingbird since I'm always walking backwards .

So roll out the butterbeers, canary creams & get that ice cream van in here ..... let’s PARTY!

Anyone seen the disco ball.... it's been out wandering again ..... oh & Abby, I'm afraid you'll have to supply your own Abbyfetti .... seeing as the rest of us don't know the incantation ...

Happy Birthday Abby.... here’s an ice cream.... it's a plain ice cream, with a difference, just speak the flavour you want it to be & hey presto... it's that flavour... wow you'd think it was like magic or something

Just another invention from WWW ... Gred & Forge really are geniuses..... Molly should be proud

They've added some flavors that they never even thought of, like: metal, water, and Styrafoam! I've really been wanting to try that water one, it sounds interesting, and the Jumbo Pack has enough for everyone at St. Mungo's!

Birthday parties again! Whoopie! Oh Abby! I've been just waiting for the right opportunity to give you this miniature pyramid model. If you look closely, you can see what's going on in & around it... AND, when you twist the top, it shows you the same pyramid 10 years earlier. Just keep twisting the top counterclockwise til you get to the 1920's or further back... just don't get too far back or all you'll be holding is sand. Twist it clockwise to get back to the present. Too bad it doesn't look into the future. You might see yourself there. I'm not sure which pyramid it's modeled after, but I'm sure you'll know.

Liz, I might as well give you your present now - since it is your birth-week. *Hands over a strange box* Well, I had to make this myself, but it works great! Just attach this end to your bedpan & you can tow any number of pooches in comfort & style anywhere you go. I made it extra-large since your avatar indicates you prefer large dogs. They might even come in handy for Quidditch, but the bedpan does require a bit more handling.

*Snaps shot of Fawkes* Don't worry if I got your best side or not, Fawkes. Remember, you can move in pictures. *Gets out quill and parchment*

Dear Mr. (?) Lovegood and Miss Luna Lovegood, . . . .

Now what??

Abby, what do you want for your birthday? I don't pay very much attention. Who is your favorite character? Here, in case I can't get a picture of them, is a box of Ton-Tongue Toffees. And here's a Time Turner I personally invented. It goes into the future instead of the past, see? But you can only go 60 minutes forward and then you're stuck in the future until the present catches up. Time Traveling is so confusing.

I haven't tried that floaty-foamy stuff. Can I have some cherry flavor, please? *Levitates and hits ceiling* OW! *Waves wand (newly disguised invisibly) at ceiling* Raisio! there, I've raised the ceiling to eleven feet.

Yes, I watched it last night.

Good news, I just heard on the radio that the Duct Tape Festival isn't until this weekend. So, if you are looking for something to do with your father....

Happy Birthday Abby!!!!!!! Here is some Violafetti ;';,;';,;';,;';,;';

*plays Happy Birthday on viola for Abby*

Btw Kip, define "overboard".

And Abby, my present to you is, I fixed your bagpipes, they should sound better than ever. sshhhh *motions for Abby to lean in closer, then whispers* I put in a unicorn hair from my bow. hehehe


Kip Carter - Jun 16, 2004 3:54 am (#1429 of 2965)

“Overboard” is any one member spending more than 50 galleons without my approval.


Blast - Jun 16, 2004 4:18 am (#1430 of 2965)

Hey there's a sphynx in the basement with a birthday riddle for Abby. I'd give you some Blastofetti but the Nuclear Regulatory Commission won't release any.

Wow, so much 'fetti! Thanks guys. Here's some of the original: ,'.;,.;,'.;',;.',;.',;. Yay, for Abbyfetti! The trick to the Abbyfetti is. . . Well, if I told you it wouldn't be impressive, now would it?

Thanks for all the gifts! They're lovely! And, Hermy, I couldn't tell you my favourite character. I love them all (except Umbridge--barf). That's why I don't usually have a HP related avatar. I could never choose!!

*goes off searching for the sphinx in the basement playing new and improved bagpipe--thanks, Viola!*

Thanks Hermy... I'm getting a little warm now however... it ain't easy being furry.... I wonder does anyone know the counter curse?

Good job there’re plenty of drinks & ice cream.... I haven't even got a hand to fan myself with.... again with the “does anyone know the counter curse?”

Well Malfoy Jnr said he did.... but it would cost me 6 Galleons... which is over $50 .... so thats beyond our budget.... besides, would you trust him with a wand!


A-is-for-Amy - Jun 16, 2004 3:19 pm (#1433 of 2965)

No- 6 Galleons is only 30 British Pounds, which I'm pretty sure is less than $50 American dollars (I think). YOu can buy your cure as long as Lucius doesn't realize that you're paying him with his own credit card... that could cause you way more problems.


Hermionefan(#1) - Jun 16, 2004 3:42 pm (#1434 of 2965)

I know what I'll say now:

Dear Mr. (?) Lovegood and Miss Luna Lovegood,

While researching in an important wizarding laboratory, some associates and I discovered a strange new creature. We do not know the breed, and we believe that it may be a cross-breed between a Crumple-Horned Snorkack and who-knows-what else. Attached herewith is a photo of this species, which has named itself Fawkes. Please feel free to use this photo in The Quibbler.

Thank you.

Sincerely, Hermy and the scientists at St. Mungo's Laboratories.

There. That should get you into The Quibbler!

now, I believe I forgot to say, happy birthday Abby! (and if I remembered, happy birthday again) and happy early birthday, Liz!


Emily - Jun 16, 2004 4:06 pm (#1435 of 2965)

Happy Birthday to Everyone it applies to, and Happy Un-Birthday to everyone else! I think that works.

I want to try ___fetti! Here's Emifetti:

1 galleon is equal to 5 pounds, so 6 Galleons is about 30 pounds, which is about 45 euro, which is about $54 .. oh dear... opps... perhaps they won't notice... well it is Malfoy Jnr... Draco always has been a bit thick... or perhaps we could just fix the exchange rate

On second thoughts... why I am asking Draco to perform magic on me... am I insane or something?

Hermy.... the photo looks good... but I'm a bit concerned that they might think I'm a real Crumpled thingy wotsit... perhaps we should tell them I really am a witch.... oh could you imagine the scandal if we where ever found out... Rita would have a field day.

Any healers know how to fix this? Getting very warm here.... *spies empty ice cream truck*.... ohhhh theres a freezer in there..... *runs to ice cream van & attempts to climb into freezer... but large Crumple-Horned Snorkack posterior gets stuck in the door...* opps.... I'm feeling a lot cooler... but guys.... I'm stuck!

It's no fun being a Crumple-Horned Snorkack ... thats what I get for being greedy... no more opening strange bags of gold for me.... oh look... some Ben & Jerrys.... *snaffle*

Oh Fawkes you poor thing. I can fix you. However, you may not like the cure. The side effects are TEMPORARY saneness. If you take it you better have some close friends around to guard so you can hide the saneness.

I'm afraid to tell you the cure. But this is the only one I know for this sort of problem. The decision is yours. I will leave the glass of potion for you to decide if you would like it.

The ingredients are as follows, I shutter to admit these and don't ask where I had to go to obtain these:

-lime and cherry jello powder

-sugar free, salt free, carb free so-called "chocolate"



-and last but not least please don't hurt me, calamari

I don't know if I would take the potion if I were in the same situation. But is it completely up to you.

BTW: I couldn't see the picture. Was it supposed to show up?


Ticker - Jun 16, 2004 10:05 pm (#1438 of 2965)

Contemplates insurrection against Prof Sprout for serving calamari, but sees that it can't possibly be from a Giant Squid...

There should be an exchange rate question on the obsessed quiz... you guys probably know your bank account in Galleons, Sickles & Knuts too.

I, on the other hand, have difficulty counting. Maybe I should have asked Kip, but I swear it was a great deal on a million cicadas for 68 Sickles... chap seemed glad to be rid of 'em...

Wow Liz! That bed-pan trailer box looks great! Oh! You're going to Warwick Castle? That place is soooo cool! I debated between getting lost in the garden maze or touring the wax museum. I opted for the "shorter" museum & missed my bus anyway. Have a great time!

Fawkes, I'll stand by ya! You don't mind bugs do you? Anyway, it might help you, er, recover from your temporary saneness.


A-is-for-Amy - Jun 16, 2004 11:50 pm (#1439 of 2965)

Just went back to Kip's post to check, and it says no more than 50 GALLEONS - so you're safe, no matter who sells you the cure.


Viola Intonada - Jun 17, 2004 4:06 am (#1440 of 2965)

Only up to 50 Galleons? Well, I'd better rethink my room remodeling plans. Guess I will have to live without a few things. Hmmm... I really had my heart set on the miniture working replica of the galazy...

Fawkes, let me consult my library of Gilderoy Lockhart books. I'm sure I can find something in there.

Abby, you're bagpipe playing is sounding simply marvelous.


A-is-for-Amy - Jun 17, 2004 4:17 am (#1441 of 2965)

Hey all! This just in! JKR had confirmed that Blaise Zabini is, in fact, a boy! I guess it's up at the Lexicon, but I just found out and thought it was funny. For a while there in fan-ficiton land He was the gender-less "Pat" of the wizarding world. That's a load off of my mind.

Say, could we each spend 50 Galleons on a new bedpan? How much do they cost?

Speaking of which...when is our next match? Don't we play for the cup next? If so, when?


Liz Mann - Jun 17, 2004 3:24 pm (#1444 of 2965)

The best ones probably cost about that. New bedpans all around, courtesy of Mr Malfoy!


Fawkes Forever - Jun 17, 2004 3:43 pm (#1445 of 2965)

50 Galleons... whoops, that'll teach me not to read a post properly.... 'tis the Crumpled Horn wotsit eye sight ya know... not as sharp as my own However I think I trust Prof Sprout a lot more than Draco... actually I don't trust Draco at all.....

Besides I've started making elephant like trumpet noises.... I must be mutating into this form even more.... looks like a time for drastic measures.... *Looks dubiously at potion*.... hmmm, well I don't mind broccoli ..... but calamari ..... oh I don't know *trumpet* oh dear... well I need to get out of here first.... *The Weasleys climb into van & start pushing the Fawkes Crumple Horned Snorklack out of the van ....

Flames come shooting out of ears... Snorklack bounces about like a powerball.... then POP... Fawkes appears... looking slighly disheveled....*

When I addressed this spending question back at Post #1408, I was only responding to Liz Mann. I did not approved 50 galleon for everyone, only Liz had approval to go to 50 galleons. As for anyone else wanting to spend Lucius's funds, you need to address me with your estimated costs for approval or you need to pay for them yourself.

Only Liz has asked me for the use of Lucius's credit card.

Only Liz? OK...may I use...say...1,000 Galleons of Lucius' money to buy myself a new bedpan, pure gold with a shiny handle. Please? I won't ask for anything ever again.

The Bedpan Sleeper 2000! I also got some new Quiddich Armour and some new uniforms for the team.


Blast - Jun 17, 2004 10:16 pm (#1454 of 2965)

I thought that our uniforms were straightjackets. Hey we don't need Lucius's card any more, I took a niffler down to the basement. Needless to say it found the Malfoy family vault


Liz Mann - Jun 17, 2004 10:24 pm (#1455 of 2965)


And yes our uniforms were the straight jackets but they're kinda hard to move in.

Sweeeeeet! Love the new badpan, Liz! I know a guy in Tiajuana (did I spell that right?) who could airbrush it for you - I had him do mine lime green with yellow and purple flames.

Edited by Jun 17, 2004 4:18 pm

Blast, I hate to tell you this, but the gold you found in Lucius's vault is Leprechaun Gold. When Lucius's was sent to Azkaban, the gold in his vault was replaced with Leprechaun Gold because it was assumed that everyone would eventually try to do what you did when his being away. The new location is a special vault within Gringott's of which I have the only key. Sorry about that!

And as far as the credit card that Liz was using, it had a special charm where only she could use it and the limit was set for 50 galleons. Anaything over that was immediately charged to Liz's account. I think Liz's parents are going to be really upset when they received the overage bill for her expenditures. Maybe some stuff will get returned with a re-stocking fee.

Credit is something that should not be abused, even by the Maniacs. Sorry 'bout dat! Don't be surprised to have a bed pan jerked out from under you. Those ghouls at Quality Quiddich Supplies can be heartless! That's their nature.


Viola Intonada - Jun 18, 2004 1:34 am (#1458 of 2965)

Liz, I love your new bedpan. I'm jealous.

Fawkes, are you insane again yet? If not, "It's a small world after all. It's a small world after all....."


dobbyiscool - Jun 18, 2004 2:17 am (#1459 of 2965)

I love the uniforms. Why don't we hold a fundraiser so Liz doesn't lose her bedpan in the middle of a match? I know! We'll hold a bake sale! We can sell Canary Creams, etc.


Ticker - Jun 18, 2004 2:36 am (#1460 of 2965)

Kip, you're looking strangely like Slytherin Prefect these days. Are you sure you aren't somehow channelling him? Power and money might not help you on the road to recovery as much as you might think.

Oooooooh what's that? Over there! (tries to grab Lucius' credit card Kip has tucked into the crystal knob on top of gnarly, extra- long walking stick) I think it's a flying banana! DUCK! No! I meant duck the flying banana - not a flying banana-duck. Geez! Whadda ya think I am? Crazy or somethin'?

*Stomps off, leaving a bewildered Kip still holding staff with credit card on top...*


Blast - Jun 18, 2004 3:36 am (#1461 of 2965)

The ghouls sound like a cross between goblins and dementors. Sorry about that, a cross between a goblin and a dementor would be a lawyer. Sorry about that, I meant a divorce lawyer, not that I have ever had the chance to need one, but I have heard a few people talk about them.

This is the song that does't end.
It just goes on and on, my friend!
Some people started singing it not knowing what it was

Since Fawkes is asleep, let’s try out this new item that that Weasley Twins are trying out. It's famous wizard's masks. You put it on someone and they look like any wizard you want them to be for a hour. We could turn Fawkes into Umbridge, wake her up and then hold a mirror in front of her.

Hey Kiiiip! *sweet voice* Could I have permission to spend just 1 Galleon at a time off Lucius' card? It's not much, y'know.... just one piddly little Galleon at a time won't attract any attention. Just to cover little expenditures like canary creams and such like. Is that ok? Please?


Kip Carter - Jun 19, 2004 12:34 am (#1476 of 2965)

Pinky, sweet voice always works. You can spend up to 10 galleons every calendar month as long as you do not exceed 100 galleons annually. That would not really show up with all the other stuff I have being charged to his account. If you can keep everything in single digits of galleons, that is not a problem. This authorization is for Pinky only!

It means that you are right here where you belong Ticker!

With so many fellow inmates being threatened with sanity, I have decided to take a step and make sure that it never happens to me! Tomorrow I am leaving on a three week vacation to tour the West. To help make sure that I will not be sane, this vacation is being spent with my hubby and our two girls, ages 7 and 8, in our minivan, driving out west, just the four of us, driving and driving and driving... Oh sorry about that, I just kind of started rattling on there didn't I? Well like I said, this should insure that I shall never be so sane that I have to leave St. Mungo's.

Ticker, If you would like to get together while we are in Spearfish (July 7-9) please email me. My e-mail is in my forum info. I will get to check e-mail occasionally.

See you all in three weeks!

*waves madly, wipes tear from her eye* Oh, I'm going to miss you all terribly. Can someone please go to my room and chase the butterflies there occasionally. They get lonesome if no one chases them.


A-is-for-Amy - Jun 19, 2004 4:23 am (#1481 of 2965)

I'll chase them for Viola! I have fond memories of driving across country in a van as a child (New Jersey to California)... but I don't recommend it for the parents. I've done it twice with my boys (Arizona to Missouri) and it made me wonder how me and my sisters survived to adulthood or weren't sold to gypsies somewhere along the way.

And Ticker? How do you know that you're not really an eel, and the real dream is being a human obsessed with Harry Potter?

I could have used that song when I was a kid driving across country in a van with my family.... but then my parents probably would have sold me to gypsies. On a side note, I've threatened to sell my own children to them so many times, that my oldest son no longer believes they really exsist, kind of like the boogie man.

AH! Kip, because I have been babysitting all week and don't need the songs that never end to further my insanity, could I please use Lucius' credit card to buy myself some earplugs? I'll buy you a pair, too. They have a spell on them so that only actual conversation is allowed to get through, and all annoying songs are tuned out.

And, I ask again, when do we have our next Quidditch match?

Kip, I have here an unlimited gift certificate to Weasley's Wizard Wheezes. Do you want it? You can buy ANYTHING, no matter the price. All I ask in return is a little bit of freedom with Lucius Malfoy's credit card...


A-is-for-Amy - Jun 20, 2004 2:43 am (#1491 of 2965)

Hey dobbyiscool - It's so quiet in here today - do you think they already left? I don't even know where the game was supposed to be!


Kip Carter - Jun 20, 2004 3:35 am (#1492 of 2965)

dobbyiscool, you can get the earplugs as long as they do not exceed ten galleons. I would think that would easily cover earplugs and much more.

pyro, you can use this special credit card which will automatically destroy itself if you charge more that ten galleons. And you can keep the gift certificate. The Weasley said they would be glad to give me anything free; however I have never and will never take them up on that offer because I always pay my way. If I do not have the galleons, I don't need it. Maybe that's why Lucius trust me. However I don't believe that one bit because he is so vain and he knows if he gives me a rough time, I will kipendo his threads.

Pig- thanks for the ducky & the Dew.

Amy - you're scarin' me... have you been watching Shrek?

Viola - it would be great to see you in Spearfish (provided I get a day pass from St. Mungo's)! Maybe Dobby could just pop over (it'd only be a 6-7 hour drive...). If not, maybe you could borrow the earplugs.

Kip - I'm confused (not unusual). I'm trying to get this straight. Are you a patient, staff, visitor or patron? Or other? If you're a patient why does Lucius trust you? If you're a staff, why do we trust you? If you're a visitor, why did they let you onto the locked ward? If you're a patron, why do you have Lucius' credit card? If you're "other" - I totally understand... they've given me messages too.

I have the weirdest taste in my mouth however, like seafood.... hmm, I never eat sea food..... *shudder* in respect to the Giant Squid.... ya know. Anyways, must have been something in the Jello .... must go brush my teeth...

*runs up to bathroom... after a few seconds there is an ear spliting scream.... Fawkes must have caught sight of her reflection in the bathroom mirror.... Blast giggles in the corner as Gred & Forge perform a 'high five' ... Fawkes renters the room sobbing & looking for Prof Sprout*

George feels a pang of guilt... (or is it fear), & takes the mask off Fawkes face.... for which he gets a punch in the arm from said victim .... but she cannot stay mad for very long spying their 'hound dog' expressions*

Fair enough it was milding amusing & be safe in the knowledge that if the tables where turned, I would have probably played a similar trick..... those masks are cool by the way... *grabs a Lucius Malfoy mask* Coooool!

To show my appreciation I'll sing you a nice song ... from an old Muggle TV show ... Zig & Zag... remember them Liz?

Betcha don't know when the song is gonna end.... Betcha don't know when the song is gonna end.... Betcha don't know when the song is gonna end.... but ... it doesn't end right now... no way!

Fawkes I wouldn't recommend the Snape mask, you know there are many residents in the “I'm In Love With a Potter Character” ward. You would get attacked, and then, Gina might go after the attackees, thinking it is the real Snape, and she might do something to him if she thinks he's cheating on her. It would be a horrible domino effect.

There are many other masks over there. There even looks like a healer who has high security clearance mask. *Pushes it secretly towards the residents.* Wow there are many cool masks.

*Walks away whistling and looking up at the ceiling.*

BTW has any one seen Gina lately?

It is kind of like the old M*A*S*H show where Hawkeye, after being held in his tent awaiting a court martial demanded by Frank Burns, has now been released when the tables were turned on ferret-faced Frank (who is now in being held in the tent awaiting his court martial) now mocks Frank with "... in, out, in, out, ...." as he (Hawkeye) repeatively steps in and out of the entrance to the tent. That's me! (... in, out, in, out ...)

Hey all! I'm heading off tomorrow for a week long vacation with the family (San Diego, here we come!). I've turned on the automatic butterfly chaser in Viola's room, but could someone feed my pets while I'm gone? Just toss in raw steak and three bottles of butterbeer through the hole at the top of my door... they can remove the corks themselves. Oh - and don't under any circumstances open my door without being ready with a stunning spell first. Thanks!

Prof Sprout indeed... I had no sooner put the Snape mask on & I got a few wolf whistles from some patients who shall remain nameless.....

I think I'll be safe with a nice Oliver Wood mask..... *screams & runs from scampede of adoring Oliver Wood fans.......* ARGH.... *Pulls mask off* Hmmm, maybe not. What about this one.... T.M. Riddle.... hmmm, never heard of that person... sounds like fun!

*Whisper... Lol Liz, maybe Zig & Zag were before your time... hee hee. They were two puppets, twin brothers, actually aliens ... & very naughty (remind you of any other twins) but with Irish accents They started out on Irish TV.... the after school TV slot, and they were huge, TV Shows & Singles & albums ... think Ant & Dec... but puppets... Then they moved on to the Big Breakfast on Channel 4, after which their humour got a big dodgy to say the least & they moved into TV obscurity... Heres a pic to jog your memory.

Okay, I'm hopping in again. I've been extremely busy with erm... erm ... something. It involved a presentation, a lot of writing (still does) and me considering biking myself in front of a car just to get it over with. (Don't worry, I considered a spot just behind a speed ramp, I'm not that far gone yet)

Anyways I'm here. Did you know that your singing could be heard far and wide outside the building? You have lovely singing voices, I suggest you spare them as much as you can!

Hmmm Fawkes, you might want to reconsider that TM Riddle mask, you think Oliver Wood has fangirls? Tom has this "bad boy image" going for him...

And Hermionefan#1 you obviously have talent for drawing, maybe you want to decorate some walls? We can use Lucius’ credit card to pay for the paint and do some restyling in here. I'm sure Amy will lurrrv it when she comes back!
Here, I'll lead by example. Watch me I'm going to do a portrait of prof Sprout on this wall over here!


Well... it's an abstract portrait, can't you see?

Kip Carter - Jun 22, 2004 2:49 pm (#1511 of 2965)

Steffie, you are authorized to use Lucius's credit card for up to 50 galleons to paint the Ward and throw in some style. If you need more, check with me before you buy anything more. 50 galleons should go an extremely long way in restyling the Ward.

Zig was yellow with two pingpong ball eyes, green hair (think Bert) & red deely boppers on his head (you know those head bands with springs with pom poms on the end). Zag was shorter, was purple with green spots, with pingpong ball eyes pointing in different directions, yellow wool hair & green deely boppers on his head.

I can tell you all know exactly what I'm talking about now, hee hee. If the healers where in any doubt of my sanity... then I think I'll be here for another few decades.... *shakes head* Sorry now, where was I?

Pig, wow that looks just like I did last week... Pyro, oh wow.... it's so life like.... hmm, extremely life like .... are you sure you didn't just stick Draco to the wall & paint over him Not that you'd ever do anything like that.

Think I'll paint a nice piccie of .... let me think.... oh *squeal... gets all excited* We should self portraits.... *grabs brush ... Several seconds later there is a cartoonish drawing of a woman with wiggy looking brown hair.... * Taa daa, thats me... woohoo.

Now I think I'll draw a piccie of Hagrid & Norbert... oh & then I'll draw a family portrait of the Weasleys... hmm, perhaps I'd better get them all to visit so I can make it as accurate as possible ....

Ok guys, per Kip's request, I'm posting my story here. Hope you enjoy it, and I hope it doesn't bring you too far back into the world of sanity. Sorry if it disturbs the natural flow in insanity!

~~~~~**~~~~~**~~~~~**~~~~~ The Quest for the Holy Quill
A bedtime story for Lindsay
By Julia

Once upon a time there lived a beautiful princess named Caroline. Princess Caroline lived in Gryffindor Castle, which was named after a great man her grandfather once heard about in a legend long a go. One day as Princess Caroline sat reading in her bedroom she heard a loud nock on the castle door. She came down the stairs and saw her mum and dad pulling open the door (it was a very large door and required the efforts of two people to open it) to reveal a band of knights. Well, it wasn’t so much a band as it was a very small group.

“Hello good people,” said the first knight. He was extremely tall and gangly. He gave the impression that he could easily twist himself into a pretzel.

“I am Sir Colin of Woodbridge. This is Sir Josh of New Haven.” He indicated a blond man about two heads shorter than himself.

“Sir Sam of Harrisburg,” he pointed to a skinny man with red hair, who looked as though he could run several miles.

“And Sir Jim of Cleveland.” He motioned to a tall man with a full beard and mustache.

“We are the Knights of the Long Overpass. If you will grant us food and shelter for the night, you can join us on our quest for the Holy Quill.”

“Well,” said Princess Caroline’s dad. "You can certainly stay here in Gryffindor Castle for the night, but I’m afraid we can’t join you on your quest, for I am far too old, and my wife just doesn’t want to. Caroline darling, have you seen those two owls? They were supposed to be here three hours ago!"

“Dad, I want to go with them! And no, I haven’t seen the owls,” Princess Caroline piped up from the bottom stair.

“Well, I don’t see why you can’t go,” said her father. "You could do with some exercise and fresh air."

“Ewwwwwwwww,” said Sir Colin. "We don’t want her doing girlie stuff in front of us!" The others nodded in agreement.

“Oh sod off all of you,” said Princess Caroline. "I do not do - ow did you put it - girlie stuff. And besides, you need a woman with you. We have a better sense of fun than you boys."

Princess Caroline shot them a look like daggers. That argument certainly seemed to convince the Knights of the Long Overpass to allow the princess to join them on thir quest. Sir Jim in particular seemed rather excited to have Princess Caroline along for the ride. The king and queen of Gryffindor Castle threw them a great banquet that evening. They feasted on everything in the castle that was kosher, because Sir Josh was Jewish and did not want to eat such things as sausage and ham and cheese sandwiches.

After a long night of eating, drinking, and finally sleeping, the Knights of the Long Overpass and Princess Caroline continued on their journey in search of the Holy Quill. Princess Caroline was very curious about these men, as she had never been around so many men before, nor had she ever been on a quest for anything that did not involve fluffy pink bunny slippers. Every so often she would ask the knights questions about their journey.

“What sorts of things have you run into?” she asked them one day.

“We haven’t been on this quest for very long, so we haven’t run into many obstacles yet,” answered Sir Jim. "Although one night we stopped at a castle where a woman with loads of kids lived. I believe her name was Denise. She kept trying to make us all do lots of things at once. Kept going on about how everything would take much less time."

“We all thought it was rubbish,” said Sir Colin. "We’ve got all this time, why would we want to make things shorter and more efficient? What a stupid concept."

“Well I agree with that woman, said Princess Caroline. "If you can do several things at once, then you have more time to enjoy things and have fun."

“We’re on a quest! We’re not supposed to have fun!” said Sir Sam.

“And that,” said Princess Caroline. "Is why I am here."

For many days the Knights of the Long Overpass and Princess Caroline traveled, constantly searching the skies for those two owls that should have been at Gryffindor Castle several days ago. They traveled over swamps, and fields, and cities. One evening, after a particularly long day of wading through murky water (don’t ask how they got there, the details are too ghastly to discuss) they saw a small castle in the distance and thought it would be a good place to spend the night. They knocked on the door and were surprised when it was opened. In the doorway stood a woman with a screaming baby in her arms, and a giggling young girl hugging her leg.

“Hello good people,” said Sir Colin.

A tall, rather muscular man with a goatee appeared in the doorway behind the woman. He too had a young girl hugging his left leg, and an even younger boy hugging his right. It must have been very difficult for him to walk like this.

“Sir Brandon?” said Sir Jim, who was rather taken aback. "Sir Brandon of Somewhere in Cali?"

“Sir Jim!” said the man. "Sir Colin! Sir Josh! Sir Sam! What are you all doing here?"

“Our quest for the Holy Quill has brought us to these parts”, said Sir Colin.

“This is my wife,” said Sir Brandon. "Princess Lindsay. These are some of our children. On my left leg is Michelle, on my right leg is Steve, on Lindsay's leg is Aurellia, and Lindsay is holding your youngest, Richard. Our other children are inside, won’t you come in?"

“Why thank you Sir Brandon,” said Sir Jim. "This is Princess Caroline of Gryffindor Castle. She has joined us on our quest for the Holy Quill."

“Pleased to meet you,” Sir Brandon said, kissing her hand.

“The pleasure is mine,” she replied curtsying. Sir Jim quickly came behind her, and placing his hand on her shoulder, moved the party along. Once they were seated at the dinner table, Princess Caroline asked many questions of Sir Brandon.

“Sir Brandon, how is it that you know these good knights?” she asked

“I was once a Knight of the Long Overpass,” he replied

“Why 'was?' Why are you not still a Knight of the Long Overpass?”

Several years ago, he replied. "I was attending at a ball in Hogwarts Castle, in a land far from here. At this ball I met a woman. She was the most beautiful woman I had ever seen, and I fell in love with her the moment I took off my sunglasses and saw her beautiful eyes. She was...er...less than enamored with me, but in time, I won her heart." He looked over at his wife and smiled. “We were married and soon after started our family."

“How many children do you have?” Princess Caroline asked.

“Twelve,” said Sir Brandon. "I don’t know how we manage with so many little people running around, it’s a wonder Princess Lindsay and I have anytime to our selves."

“It’s because I’m good at multitasking. I learned from a woman named Denise, she is the master of multitasking. She taught me how to do several things at once, so I can find time to do what I...BRANDON!!!” she yelled at her husband, as a brown liquid flowed across the table.

“I’m so sorry Linds! Did that get you?”

“Yes it did! You ruined my skirt! And AHHHHH you got it on my shoes! Clean this mess up now!” she yelled.

“What was that?” asked Princess Caroline, as Sir Brandon went off to get a rag.

“Root beer,” replied Princess Lindsay. "That’s the third time he’s done that."

“Have you all met our children?” asked Sir Brandon as he rinsed out the root beer filled rag. They all shook their heads.

“Well let’s see,” said Sir Brandon. "You’ve already met Michelle, Steve, Rich and Aurellia, so these three over there are Emily, Rose and Heather, by the window are Anabelle and Rebecca, and at the table are John, Molly and Andrew."

Once everyone was properly introduced, and dinner was eaten, everyone went off to bed. The castle was quite small and already packed, so all the knights and Princess Caroline had to sleep on the floor of the living room. The knights fell asleep right away, but Princess Caroline lied awake for some time. Princess Lindsay and Sir Brandon looked so happy together with a lovely family. She couldn’t help but think that as fun as the quest for the Holy Quill was, after its completion, she would like to settle down and have children of her own, although not nearly as many as Princess Lindsay and Sir Brandon. Looking over to her left, she noticed that Sir Jim looked very happy and peaceful when he was sleeping. She inched a bit closer to him and drifted off to sleep.

The next morning at breakfast Sir Brandon looked longingly up at the ceiling and reminisced about how much he loved being a Knight of the Long Overpass, and about how much he missed it. He talked about what it would be like to be back out there again, slaying ferocious beasts and what not, but then Princess Lindsay gave him quite a talking too, telling him all the horrible things she would do to him if he ever left her alone with twelve young children. That put an end to that in a hurry. The knights and Princess Caroline bid their goodbyes to Sir Brandon and Princess Lindsay, and told them that if they ever needed anything, they would be more than happy to oblige, and that, perhaps when the children were older, if Sir Brandon wanted to rejoin the Knights of the Long Overpass, he would be more than welcome to do so. They were also instructed to send the two owls along to Gryffindor Castle, if they should happen to come across them. For several weeks they traveled some more, with nothing interesting to report, just your average run of the mill traveling.

One afternoon, around tea time, they came across a castle and thought it would be a good place to stop for a spot of tea. They approached the castle and no sooner had they gotten within three feet of the moat than something very strange happened. They all still looked like themselves, but something was not quite right. Their features were somehow off, just a bi, as though someone was trying to draw them and had not done it properly.

“This is not right!” said Sir Colin.

“Dear me,” said Sir Josh. "What happened to us? Why have suddenly turned into something that looks like drawings but aren’t?"

Just as the knights and Princess Caroline were debating the possible reasons for this strange look of a drawing not quite right, a woman approached them.

“Hello dear lady,” said Sir Colin. "Are you the lady of this castle?"

“I am,” said the woman. "My name is Sarah. It’s very nice to meet you."

“The pleasure is ours, Sarah,” said Sir Colin.

“Please, can you tell us,” said Sir Jim. "Why do we look like this, as though someone was trying to draw us and did not do it quite right? For we do not look like this every day, and this is most unusual."

“I made you into Sims,” replied Sarah.

“Sims? What are Sims?” asked Sir Sam.

“The Sims is a computer game. Basically, the person at the computer makes computer images of people, and puts them in fun situations and controls what they do, where they do it, what they say and what they wear. Fun, isn’t it?”

“No!” they all replied.

“This is no fun at all!” said Sir Colin. "Do you mean to tell us that you are controlling what we look like and all that, right now!?"

“At the moment, no,” replied Sarah. "For now I’ve just entered you into the system. You only look like computer images of yourselves, bout you’re still out side my control."


Julia. - Jun 25, 2004 3:40 am (#1535 of 2965)

“Well how did we get like this,” asked Princess Caroline angrily. "One minute we were normal, and now we’re computer images of your selves! How in hell did that happen?"

“No worries mate,” said Sarah. "That happens automatically when you come with in three feet of the moat. It’s much easier to track you if you’re a Sim."

“Track us! Spy on us more like!” yelled Princess Caroline.

“Well, in a manner of speaking, yes. While you’re in the castle I can see and hear everything you say and do. Fun, huh?”

“Fun for you maybe, but certainly not for us! We do not enjoy being spied on by you! And we don’t want to stay like this forever!” said Princess Caroline.

“Well, as for not wanting to be spied on, there’s nothing I can do about that so long as you’re in the castle,” said Sarah. "While you’re here, you’re being recorded by the computer game. It’s just a feature of the castle, and you’ll have to deal with it while you’re here. As for turning back, you’ll be back to your normal selves when you leave. The game only reaches the boundaries of the property."

“As much as I do not like this idea of being spied on,” said Sir Colin. "Would you consent to grant us food and shelter for the night? If you do, you can join us on our quest for the Holy Quill, if of course my fellow knights and dear princess agree."

Nobody liked being spied on by some strange woman in a computer game, but as they were hungry and didn’t want to deplete their food supply, they consented to spend the night in the castle.

“Very well,” said Sarah. "Jimmie and I are happy to have you stay with us for the night. However, we can’t join you on your quest, someone has to stay here and feed Meme and Scully."

They feasted on a magnificent feast that night, and slept in as much comfort as one can sleep in when one is a computer game. The next morning they set off again. Sarah told them that if she caught sight of the two owls, she would send them along to Gryffindor Castle. As soon as they got near the moat, they became themselves again, non-computerized. They were very happy about this, and there was much rejoicing.

For several weeks they traveled, journeying for many miles a day, and sleeping on the ground at night. After such a long time with the Knights of the Long Overpass, Princess Caroline became very acquainted with these men, and indeed, she liked them very much. She suspected they liked her too, as she heard no talk of her doing girlie stuff in their presence. She found out all sorts of interesting things about Sirs Colin, Josh, Sam and Jim, and she liked every bit of what she heard, especially the tales of Sir Jim. She couldn’t put a finger on why, but she seemed to like him the best. They spend an awful lot of time together, lagging a bit behind the others during the traveling, enjoying long conversations about who know what. Occasionally, when the terrain would become difficult to walk, Sir Jim would take Princess Caroline by the hand and lead her through, lest she fall and ruin her dress. She did not need the help, but appreciated the gesture and was grateful for the chance to hold hands with Sir Jim.

After a long bit of travel with no sight of the owls, our heroes came across a castle. On the front of this castle was a strange picture. It featured a man with a hooked nose and shoulder length greasy looking black hair. He was standing in front of three teenagers, one a girl with bushy brown hair and wearing a pink hoodie, another a tall boy with red hair, the last a boy with jet black hair, glasses over his green eyes, and a scar shaped like a lightening bolt on his forehead. The hook-nosed man in the picture had a speech bubble, which said, "Back now, I told you. Gina gets to serve detention with me first!" Not wanting to think about what that meant, they approached the castle and knocked on the door. A tall woman with shoulder length black hair answered the door."

“Hello good lady,” said Sir Colin.

“Who are you?” asked the woman.

“I am Sir Colin of Woodbridge,” replied Sir Colin. "Are you the lady of this castle?"

“Yes,” said the woman. "My name is Gina R. Snape. Welcome to the Castle Snape. I live here with my husband Severus. Why are you here?"

“These are my Knights of the Long Overpass, and Princess Caroline who is accompanying us. We are on a quest for the Holy Quill, which has brought us to these parts. If you will grant us food and shelter for the night, you can join us on our quest,” said Sir Colin.

“Sevie and I were never much the outdoors and quests and such, but you can stay, just this once. We do not usually allow visitors in out castle, but I will make in exception for you.”

“Thank you very much,” said Sir Colin as the party followed Mrs. Snape inside.

They were a little freaked out by this castle. It was very cold, and made of stone. It looked like the dungeons of the worst castle known to man, and it was all decorated in silver and green. On the walls were pictures of Mrs. Snape and the hook-nosed man who they now assumed to be Mr. Snape, and paintings of serpents. Princess Caroline thought this was not the sort of place where she enjoyed being. Walking though the corridors of this castle, she remembered a tale her grandfather had told her when she was little. In the story, a man called Gryffindor, for whom her home was named, had slain a man called Slytherin. They had once been great friends, Gryffindor and Slytherin, but something got between them to make the rift permanent. Seeing all the serpents on the walls made Princess Caroline think of this story, and she thought it best if these people did not know where she was from.

They reached the main dining hall for the meal, and saw that the hook-nosed man was sitting at the table. They were correct in assuming he had greasy hair, and his skin was even paler than in the pictures.

“I am Snape the potions master,” he said by way of a greeting. "Who are you?"

“I am Sir Colin,” said Sir Colin. "This is Sir Josh, Sir Sam, Sir Jim, and Princess Caroline."

“You have detention,” said Snape.

“But why?” said Sir Josh.

“Because you are in my castle and I see fit to give you detention. After dinner you will go to the dungeons and pickle the toad’s ears, then you will skin the shellfrigs.”

“What about me Severus?” asked Mrs. Snape.

“You will serve detention with me, at a later hour,” he said.

“Oh goodie, I can’t wait!” said Mrs. Snape, clearly excited.

They ate dinner as quickly as they could, for even though the food was good, they were rather keen to get their detentions over with in haste. Mrs. Snape had showed them to their rooms, and they put their bags down. The rooming arrangements were such that Princess Caroline was forced to share a room with Sir Jim, while Sirs Colin, Josh and Sam were in another room. Princess Caroline did not mind this at all, she rather enjoyed watching Sir Jim as he slept. When informed of the rooming arrangements, Sir Jim did not complain, and Princess Caroline took this as a good sign.

Post  Lady Arabella on Fri Mar 23, 2012 7:29 pm


Julia. - Jun 25, 2004 3:47 am (#1536 of 2965)

Half an hour later our heroes found them selves in the dungeons pickling toad’s ears. This took quite some time, as not one among them had ever pickled a toad’s ear before, and they had no idea how it was done. After several long hours of pickling, they finally moved on to skinning the shellfrigs. This took significantly less time, as Sir Sam had once received a detention very similar to this in his school days, and was quite skilled at the process. He taught them how to do it, and with in the hour they had skinned the one hundred and fifty shellfrigs they had been assigned.

After this detention they were all quite tired and headed off to their rooms. Despite their tired state, Princess Caroline and Sir Jim did not fall asleep right away, and Princess Caroline took advantage of the situation and asked Sir Jim a question that she had been dying to ask ever since the start of their quest.

Sir Jim, she said. "Why exactly are we looking for this Holy Quill? What does it do? Why is it so special, and what are we going to do with it once we have it?"

“A good question,” my dear Princess, said Sir Jim.

“Please, call me Caroline,” said the princess.

“A good question, my dear Caroline. The answer is as follows. The Holy Quill is a very special quill. It is made of exceedingly rare pink turkey feathers. Only certain people can write with it. You see, the Quill has sort of a 'moral detector.' Only those of purest heart can use it, and what ever the writer chooses to write with it can only be read by the intended person, provided that person is also of pure heart. So you see, it’s excellent for detecting traitors. If, for example, I were to send a message to Mrs. Snape, thinking that she were a good woman and someone on our side in a war, the Quill would only allow the message to reach her if she really were on our side. It detects the intentions of people using it. You can see that this is a most incredible quill, which is why it is so heavily guarded. It’s stored in the Castle Enron, which is not two weeks journey from here, and is guarded by a man named Kip. No one has ever seen this Kip, but he is a powerful man, and some people even think that he is the missing cousin of and old wizarding family.”

“Really? What family is that?” asked Caroline.

“The Weasley family,” replied Sir Jim. "Surely you’ve heard of them. I once heard tell of a missing member of this family who was an accountant, and rumor had it that this Kip who guards the Holy Quill is that missing Weasley. We must look out for him, he is a force to be reckoned with."

Just at that moment they heard some very strange noises coming from the room above them.

Caroline let out a giggle. "Gina must be serving her detention with Severus," she said. They both laughed quite a bit, and decided it would be better not to think of exactly what it was that was making the noises, although they had a shrewd idea. They noticed that it was very late, so they said good night and went to sleep, both feeling extremely happy.

The next morning the Knights of the Long Overpass and Princess Caroline bit good-bye to Gina and Severus Snape, thanking them profusely for the shelter, and the experience of pickling toad’s ears and skinning shellfrigs. The couple reluctantly agreed to send the two owls along to Gryffindor Castle, although they did so with much distain and Princess Caroline though she made a wise decision in not telling the Snapes where she was from.

Over the next several days the Knights of the Long Overpass and Princess Caroline traveled very far, growing closer by the day. Having Princess Caroline with them did wonders for the Knights of the Long Overpass, as they had never before felt like such good friends, or indeed had they never known each other as well as they did now. Sir Jim and Princess Caroline were really getting on quite well, she often found little excuses to touch him, or to sit next to him at the dinner table, and, as luck would have it, the terrain they were traveling on was nearly always rocky and rather difficult to walk, thus Sir Jim would hold her hand and guide her along, making her very happy.

Soon they were at last in sight of the Castle Enron, the home of the infamous Kip, and of course, the Holy Quill. Our heroes were overly excited to be so near reaching their destination and obtaining the Holy Quill. In fact, they were more excited that was legally allowed, but as there were no excited police any where near them, they managed to escape persecution. Unfortunately for the princess and knights the castle was blocked. They could not just walk straight up and knock on the door. Their way was blocked by a moat, filled with some brown liquid that did not look pleasant, and by a ferocious beast, which had three heads, and what looked to be poisonous teeth. It was a dreaded fluffy-lisk. A three headed dog with poisonous fangs. They seemed to be royally stuck, with no way to get to the castle, and this made them very sad. Just as they were pondering their options Sir Josh fell into the moat. The other knights and the princess all stuck their hands into the moat, grabbed hold of Sir Josh and pulled him form the moat, all saying that it had been a very close call, an they hope they would never have to do that again. They all noticed that both Sir Josh and their hands were extremely sticky after pulling Sir Josh from almost certain peril.

“What is that smell?” asked Sir Josh.

“It smells like . . . .” said Sir Jim as he smelled his hands (as well as Princess Caroline’s, as he happened to be holding it). " . . .Root beer."

“Root beer,” said Princess Caroline, the look on her face and the tone of her voice suggest that she was deep in thought.

“That’s it!” she exclaimed. "We’ll use root beer to kill the fluffy-lisk!"

“What utter rubbish,” said Sir Colin. "How can root beer possibly kill a fluffy-lisk?"

“It’s actually quite simple, I’m surprised no one thought of it before now. What we need to do is spill buckets and buckets of root beer on it. It will become so engrossed in the delicious taste that it will forget about everything else. It will then wonder into the grassy knoll over there and become so hopelessly stuck, since the root beer is so sticky. Once it gets stuck, it will try to break free, but, alas, the fluffy-lisk is not very flexible, and also not very well, er, put together. Their skin is very fragile and it rips very easily. It will most likely pull it’s own arms and legs off trying to unstuck itself. As a result of all this, it will not only be unable to move, but also bleed out and die.”

“Sounds like a plan to me,” said Sir Colin. "Now, are there any buckets around?"


Julia. - Jun 25, 2004 3:54 am (#1537 of 2965)

“Ummm, yes, there are some just there, a little bit to the left,” said the Princess.

Sir Jim moved and stood just behind Caroline.

“You’re brilliant, you know that?” he whispered in her ear. He kissed her cheek and went off to fill buckets with root beer. Caroline blushed to the roots of her hair, but then remembered where she was and what she had to do, and set off to join the others.

Just as the buckets were almost filled, the fluffy-lisk noticed they were there. He did not look happy about it. He came storming over to them, all three of his heads looking very menacing and hungry. The knights, especially Sir Josh, looked rather frightened, but Princess Caroline kept her cool.

“When I say go,” she told them as quietly as she could. "Spill the root beer on him, and point him in the direction of the grassy knoll." The fluffy-lisk came very close to them, and Sir Josh looked as though he were about to wet himself. As they were shaking in terror, the knights heard a voice scream "GO!" And then a bucket’s worth of root beer flew at, and hit, the fluffy-lisk. More root beer went flying as the knights joined Princess Caroline in throwing it. Just as Princess Caroline had said, the fluffy-lisk took off towards the grassy knoll and became stuck with out a chance in the world of movement. He then tried to remove himself from the grassy knoll, but, just as the princess had said, his arms and legs ripped off, and he bled out. The Knights of the Long Overpass and Princess Caroline had killed the fluffy-lisk, and they were very happy about it. There was much rejoicing.

They entered the Castle Enron and walked through several halls and passageways, until they finally came to a halt. Directly in front of them was a rather large man with reddish-brown hair. This must be Kip, the keeper of the Holy Quill. He sat behind piles and piles of paper, all containing very official looking documents. "Harry Potter Lexicon Forum" was written on the top of each page. As they were all wondering what on earth a Harry Potter Lexicon Forum was, and what Kip was doing with it, he looked up.

“Who are you? What do you want?” he asked.

“We are the Knights of the Long Overpass,” said Sir Colin. "I am Sir Colin. This is Sir Josh, Sir Sam, Sir Jim, and Princess Caroline who is accompanying us. We seek the Holy Quill."

“You’re not getting it,” said Kip. "You’re not nearly good enough for it."

Just then Sir Jim remembered that he had a little wooden stick. It was eleven inches long and made of the finest holly. His father had told him to take it from his home before setting off on the quest, just incase he would need it, although at the time he had no idea what it did. He pulled out the stick, pointed it at Kip and shouted "Kipendio!" Kip disappeared.

“What just happened?” asked Sir Josh.

“I think you deleted him,” said Princess Caroline.

“Oh, good then, let’s get the Quill and head home, shall we?” said Sir Colin.

And they did just that. They pushed through the piles of paper in front of where Kip had been sitting and opened the door behind where he and been sitting. There sitting on a shelf was the Holy Quill, made of pink turkey feathers. Sir Colin picked up the Quill, put it in his bag, and they all set off for home, still searching the skies for those two owls.



The Knights of the Long Overpass and Princess Caroline were heading to Gryffindor Castle to take the Princess home at the journey’s end. This took them a lot less time than they voyage to the Castle Enron. Only three short weeks after finding the Holy Quill, the knights and princess had arrived at Gryffindor Castle. They knocked on the door, and a few minutes later saw it opened by Princess Caroline’s mum and dad.

They were shown inside and seated at the dinner table. They rearranged their seats a bit, so that Caroline could sit next to Sir Jim. Over dinner they recounted the story of their quest to Princess Caroline’s parents, who sat listening with rapt attention. They were fascinated by the tale, especially the part about the Castle Snape.

“She really seemed happy to serve detention?” asked Princess Caroline’s dad.

“She really did,” said Princess Caroline, looking over at Sir Jim and grinning.

The knights spent the night at Gryffindor Castle. In the morning they were set to leave, but they were delayed a bit as they heard tapping at the glass. They looked up to see two owls sitting on the sill waiting to come in. The window was opened and the owls flew in and landed on Princess Caroline’s shoulder.

“Hoot, hoot hoot,” one of them said.

“Hoot hoot, hoot, hoot hoot hoot,” replied Princess Caroline’s dad.

“These are the two owls we’ve been looking for,” he explained. "Their names are Pigwidgeon and Stellar Hawk. They’re a bit…er…directionally challenged, that’s what took them so long."

Princess Caroline laughed, and Sir Jim decided that he didn’t want to hear her do this, so he silenced her with a good kiss on the mouth. Caroline looked rather shocked and taken aback, but, much to Sir Jim’s relief, not revolted. She regained her composure and kissed him back. They were brought back to reality by the sound of laughter. They broke apart and saw that Sirs Colin, Josh and Sam were howling with hysterical laughter.

“I told you it’d be when we took her home! Pay up!” said Sir Josh.

Sir Colin and Sir Sam each pulled fifty pounds out of their pockets and gave them to Sir Josh, who looked rather pleased with himself. They laughed again, and Princess Caroline and Sir Jim could not help but join in.

And they lived happily ever after the end.

Happy birthday Liz, ah . . . eighteen was a wonderful age, please enjoy it. Gina, there is a gathering of Wizards in Toronto this weekend. I hope you and Severus don't mind if I take the Snape Beverages cart there to sample all the summer lines of the new products.

A gathering of wizards in Toronto? I'll come with you!

Do you realise we inmates might have to move to another building again? According to the thread at the top of this forum, there are some problems with this branch of World Crossing at the moment and to fix it some of the threads might have to be wiped off! So we might lose the St Mungo's thread!

Happy 18th, Liz!!!

I haven't posted in color for a while... think I better get back in the habit.

Great story Julia! I loved it! Very good. *Applauds*


Julia. - Jun 28, 2004 4:45 pm (#1553 of 2965)

Woo-Hoo! Colored Abby-fetti! How cool! *Puts on sunglasses so as to deflect the glare from the yellow* It's like a rainbow! Um, why do I have the sudden urge to eat Lucky Charms? Thanks for the reviews guys, I'm very glad that you all liked my story. *Pulls out butterbeer and drinks to a good story*


Pinky - Jun 29, 2004 12:11 am (#1554 of 2965)

Wonderful story! Can I have an autographed copy? Autographed with the Holy Quill, of course. And er... Fawkes... I'm so sorry about the mix-up with the canary cream. I've never had a cream do that to me. *goes back to check the receipt* Hmmm.... yes.... well, er -- I think your best bet is to contact Gred and Forge.

Zzzzzzzzzzzzzz. (Rolls over...) More rootbeer, please. Snnkkkk, erk, ahmmmmmm....

Julia, thank you for the story. Wonderfully told! I feel a strange familiarity with the tale even though I have never been to Upper or Lower Gathering Land.

Happy real birthday Liz! (Belated & everything)

Pinky - have you checked the "Best if used by:" date on those canary creams? They seem to have mutated while you were out.


Pinky - Jun 30, 2004 1:02 am (#1557 of 2965)

There's a "best if used by" date????!!!!! I never looked.... guess I'd better check that stash in the closet. I've been hoarding these for well over a year now.....

Now, for the cure, alls you have to do is stand naked under a full moon in a barrel of eels spleens... or is that freckles? They said you could also try a pineapple flavored Snape! beverage.

Oops, sorry, Julia. I think I forgot to tell you what a great story that was. Have some Abbyfetti to make up for it. ',.;,'.;',;.,';.',;. It's the official Abbyfetti colour! I'd try to do like I did Liz's Abbyfetti, but it takes forever!

WOO-HOO! My very first Abbyfetti! Oh yeah! I think this is cause for a party! *Pulls out butterbeer and passes it around* Now keep this away from Brandon before he spills it on Sarah.

NO Gilderoy! No butterbeer for you! Teach you to try to trip me up. Why don't you have some of this nice red Jello instead...

A-is-for-Amy - Jul 2, 2004 11:23 pm (#1570 of 2965)

I'm back from California! SOrry I missed your birthday Liz! Have a belated lego birthday cake - I made, er, assembled it myself! We went to Legoland, Sea World and the USS Midway (aircraft carrier turned into a museum) and the beach in San Diego, then drove to San Francisco for a whirlwind visit, then home. I never want to sit in a car for that long again! Next time I'm taking a port key!!

Did anyone remember to feed my pets? They weren't in my room when I went to check on them.... unless someone took them for a walk, you all might want to tuck your pants into your socks.


Liz Mann - Jul 3, 2004 3:01 pm (#1571 of 2965)

That's okay, Amy.

Man, this thread is a bit slow at the moment! One new post since yesterday. Used to be I'd go to bed at night, come on here the next day and there'd be twenty something posts to read.

By the way, I've arranged our last Quiddich match before the Cup Final. We're going to...


Are we taking the jello-sub or the giant rubber duck? (Now there's a sentense that would seem pretty strange to forum-outsiders) Do we even have those anymore?


Hermionefan(#1) - Jul 4, 2004 12:36 am (#1572 of 2965)

I think we do... somewhere maybe in the basement or the attic. *Shudders* But I don't want to go get them... who knows what might be down there... maybe lots of jello, or giant spiders, or the Weasley twins, or even... normal people?!? Or in the attic, perhaps a bunch of medications, or calamari, or sugar-free food, or a mad scientist. Oh, no, I'm not going into the basement and I'm definitely not going into the attic. But I'm sure Liz wants to go up there...


Liz Mann - Jul 4, 2004 3:52 pm (#1573 of 2965)

Oh, thanks! Hmm... maybe Lockhart wants to go up there.


Sabotage - Jul 5, 2004 1:53 am (#1574 of 2965)

I think they keep all the cherry jello in the attic, and all the blueberry jello in the basement with the cockroaches. I'm pretty sure that we didn't put the sub or rubber duckie in either of those places.

Look they're floating in the lake! The duckie looks a little deflated though...


A-is-for-Amy - Jul 5, 2004 2:08 am (#1575 of 2965)

*dusts off hands and climbs out of basement*

Good news! I found my pets! Bad news it that they've consumed massive amounts of Blueberry Jello and gone and nibbled on the giant rubber duck... I tossed it out on the lake so that I can find and repair the damage. I don't know how the sub got there, though.


PyroGrl - Jul 5, 2004 4:50 am (#1576 of 2965)

Amy, I've seen your avatar on fictionalley...LOL. It doesn't really help my fear of clowns. Smile


Liz Mann - Jul 5, 2004 11:27 am (#1577 of 2965)

You have a fear of clowns? Man, that Boggart scene must have freaked you out!

Oh, there's the sub and the duck. Now the only question is, which one do we take? *thinks* Well, I guess it depends on when we want to leave. We can take the sub and leave now or fix the duck and leave when it's done. What do you think, guys?


Pinky - Jul 5, 2004 12:40 pm (#1578 of 2965)

Ooh - let's combine them!


PyroGrl - Jul 5, 2004 3:36 pm (#1579 of 2965)

The jello submar-duckie?


Liz Mann - Jul 5, 2004 5:32 pm (#1580 of 2965)


Or, how about we use something new? We could borrow the giant peach from James, go down to the sea, rope ourselves a couple hundred seagulls and fly off to Africa.


Hermionefan(#1) - Jul 5, 2004 9:36 pm (#1581 of 2965)

Cool idea, Liz.

Pyro, you have a fear of clowns? Well that makes sense. Everyone knows that all clowns are evil and plan to hypnotize everyone and take over the world. Hang on--do I sound like Luna?

Well, that explains why Tom Riddle had a dream to become one. At least, in Pyro's fic “House of Insanity” he did. Which, unfortunately, isn't on here anymore. Hey, Pyro, did you ever find the unedited version of it?


PyroGrl - Jul 6, 2004 12:18 am (#1583 of 2965)

A-is-for-Amy - Jul 6, 2004 4:10 am (#1584 of 2965)

Clowns are evil. And you're not the only one afraid of them, Pyro. My avatar is to warn all readers that no matter how scared of clowns you are, you are completely justified by that feeling. I'm going to change that in a day or so anyway... it's giving me the creeps.


PyroGrl - Jul 6, 2004 5:30 am (#1585 of 2965)

Definitely! I love that bit in the movie.

”Sp-spiders! They want me to tapdance. I don't wanna tapdance, Harry!”

“You tell those spiders, Ron.”

“Yeah, t-tell em... I'll tell em...” *goes back to sleep immediately*


prof sprout - Jul 6, 2004 5:58 pm (#1589 of 2965)

If you guys see any clowns, I give you full permission to throw Jello at the clown. I loved the quote Liz. Poor Ron, at least we know not only Harry has bad dreams.

I wonder what Hermione dreams about.

”No Professor, What do you mean I only got 99%? Please double check again.”


PyroGrl - Jul 6, 2004 7:16 pm (#1590 of 2965)

PyroGrl - Jul 6, 2004 8:14 pm (#1592 of 2965)

**pokes bug skin** I think the grasshopper was here a while ago. He shed. Do grasshoppers shed?


Sabotage - Jul 6, 2004 9:47 pm (#1593 of 2965)

I think so... they do in that movie 'A Bugs Life.' They shed their exo-skeleton (I learned a new word!).


Liz Mann - Jul 6, 2004 10:18 pm (#1594 of 2965)

When did they say that in A Bug's Life?


Sabotage - Jul 6, 2004 11:07 pm (#1595 of 2965)
Edited by Jul 6, 2004 4:08 pm

They don't exactly say it, they show it. You know the head grasshopper dude's brother, he jumps out of his skin when he gets scared at one point in the movie.


prof sprout - Jul 6, 2004 11:38 pm (#1596 of 2965)

SK- That is fiction. I don't blame you for thinking it was real, that is why half of residents are in here. :oP


PyroGrl - Jul 6, 2004 11:52 pm (#1597 of 2965)

I thought we were here because we're in denial of the fact that there are sane people out there??

Hermionefan(#1) - Jul 7, 2004 3:16 pm (#1599 of 2965)

Ooh Giant Peach... wow...

Well Proffessor Sprout, I thought grasshoppers shed too because they did in the movie, and Disney usually sticks to the facts when they make movies, even if they're animated. Look at Finding Nemo. Isn't every creature on there a real animal? Except for the fact that they talk...

Well, let's get on the Peach! *Jumps on and grabs a chunk of peach* I hope it isn't going rotten.


Ticker - Jul 7, 2004 4:19 pm (#1600 of 2965)

Cool peach Liz!

*Checks to make sure the bruiseless drive is on before snuggling into a wrinkle on the pit..*

So, who are we playing? The Nigerian Nimbles, the Swahili Super-Scoops, the Egyptian Pharohs, or the Saharan SandDusters?

Uh, are we rolling or floating to Africa? *slurp, wipes yummy peach juice off chin*

Too bad for Aria. Peaches are the only thing she's eaten so far that she doesn't like.

Amy, thank you for not bringing the clown along.

Hermy, I just looked up an informative grasshopper site:


Grasshoppers molt several times in their lifespan, otherwise their exoskeleton would squish them.

Sabotage - Jul 7, 2004 9:53 pm (#1602 of 2965)

After about 40 to 60 days a young grasshopper is an adult. As they grow, the grasshoppers shed their exoskeleton. This shedding is called moulting.


PyroGrl - Jul 7, 2004 10:18 pm (#1603 of 2965)

Hermy, NO! That's not peach juice! It's -- ohoh. Don't worry, Hermy, it'll wear off in ten minutes and you'll float back down...just try to keep up with the peach while you're up there, OK?


Fawkes Forever - Jul 12, 2004 12:54 pm (#1623 of 2965)

Maybe we should give Hermy a rope.... whilst she’s up there... she can help the seagulls.... Whoops I mean... so that she doesn't float away. .. . yes that’s it... so she doesn't float away

Kidding, Hermy, of course....

Amy.... let me tell you, your new avatar gave me a good giggle.... not only as I loved that scene in the movie.... but for one mad second I mistook the t for an l ..... then had to laugh at my own mistake... *wipes tears from eyes* But we'll not get into that now

Who’s driving this thing by the way......?


Liz Mann - Jul 12, 2004 5:21 pm (#1624 of 2965)

The seagulls.

AAHH! *Floats away and grabs seagull's tail* Sorry man, but I have to keep up with the peach... so I'll just stick around with you for a while.


Sabotage - Jul 12, 2004 6:28 pm (#1626 of 2965)

So we're off to Kenya? Hmm... I like Kenya. It has an odd name. Not as good as Trinidad. I'm Trinidadish. Is anyone else Trinidadish? Come on all you Trinidadians!

Oh no! I'm finding my mind! Oh no! Do we have a Isolation Maze on the peach so I can lose my mind on the way to Kenya?

Oh no! Now I'm smarter too! Someone lock me up quick before it spreads to everyone else!


Liz Mann - Jul 12, 2004 9:38 pm (#1630 of 2965)

Oh no, this is serious! Especially since, by the rules, you're not allowed to play unless you live up to the name of your team. We're the maniacs, so unless you're insane...

I hoped it wouldn't come to this, but we're going to have to take drastic measures. You have to eat... blackcurrent jello!

Hey, where did everyone go? I'm back from three weeks’ vacation, guaranteeing that I will never be sane enough to leave St. Mungo's and now everyone is gone.

*Goes to check on butterflies in room*

Oh good, someone set up an automatic butterfly chaser, all of my butterflies are fine. But where did everyone go? You would think they left a note or something . . . .

EEEKKKKK!!! Oh my goodness, I'm being chased by the butterfly chaser. Oh no! St. Mungo's must have been invaded by something or somethings evil. What if there is no one here because they have been gotten by the evilness lurking here?? *Looks around with a very worried expression, while running from butterfly chaser and still trying to find a note or anything, telling where everyone has gone*

I've got to save everyone!!! I've got to think.... what could have gotten everyone, even the staff...


Fawkes Forever - Jul 13, 2004 10:04 am (#1635 of 2965)

*Sudden flash of flame in the air above Viola... which scares away the nasty butterfly chaser machine. Viola looks up... & spots a phoenix tail feather & a note*

Hi Viola,
Hope you had a nice holiday & that you're not too sane! The Maniacs are back on tour... currently enroute to Kenya to battle it out against the Kenyan Kneezles. Grab a portkey from the broom cupboard off the main hall... (I think Prof Sprout left a few incase someone got left behind.... which seems to happen quite a bit....). I think the portkeys are the empty chocolate frog wrappers... no wait.... Prof Sprout has just informed me that the portkeys are actually the tins of polish on the 2nd shelf. See you soon
~ Fawkes
P.S. Remind me to leave people a note next time.... plucking out tail feathers in a bit painful . .

*After reading note from Fawkes, runs to broom closet and grabs portkey from 2nd shelf. Arrives onboard Peach*

There you all are! Thank you so very much for the note Fawkes. I was getting rather worried. With all of the talk of patients turning sane again, I thought maybe everyone had been cured and that I was going to be all alone. *Wipes tear from eye* I so glad to see everyone here. I am happy to announce that I am thoroughly insane and have absolutely no chance of recovery, what-so-ever. It's so good to be back with everyone.

*Waves to Ticker* It was great to have lunch with you and your family!

Sabby!! You cannot be sane! You cannot be sane! You cannot be sane! You cannot be sane! You cannot be sane! You cannot be sane! You cannot be sane! You cannot be sane! You cannot be sane! You cannot be sane! You cannot be sane! You cannot be sane!

Please don't be sane! Come on, don't be sane!

*Scratches head* wait a moment, they can't hear me, I'm still floating around with Mr. Seagull here... oh wait, I'm coming down now. Ah, now you guys can hear me.

Sabby!! You cannot be sane! You cannot be sane! You cannot be sane! You cannot be sane! You cannot be sane! You cannot be sane! You cannot be sane! You cannot be sane! You cannot be sane! You cannot be sane! You cannot be sane! You cannot be sane!

ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGH! I know you're trying to help, Julia, but you're going to damage the rest of us in the process.

With all of the talk of patients turning sane again, I thought maybe everyone had been cured...


Sabby, your future at St Mungo's and on this team depends upon your answer to this question: What are the ingredients of a potion to cure boils?


Sabotage - Jul 13, 2004 10:46 pm (#1640 of 2965)

Moonstone, wolfsbane, and eye-of-Grack. But they have to be mixed in the exact right way, they all have to have equal amounts. And you have to stir them with a Grack horn.


Ticker - Jul 13, 2004 11:31 pm (#1641 of 2965)

Oh! Is that why you came to us, Sabby? You know, potions is a very exact science & Gracks do enjoy their eyesight very much - not to mention their horns.

Liz, are you trying to tell us something? You might want to talk with Madam Poppy or Professor Sprout before attempting that one. If you lay off the peach juice for a while, you might feel better. (Although it doesn't seem to bother Hermy much...)

Viola! I knew just from our short visit that you'd have no trouble being re-admitted. It was fabulous seeing you & your wonderful family in SD. Please stop by again should you feel yourself going sane. Hey! Sabby, why don't you come visit me? After 3 weeks together, Viola might even loan you her family to make the trip with.

Julia, don't make me sing songs with the lyrics wrong.


Viola Intonada - Jul 14, 2004 1:37 am (#1642 of 2965)

Ah, thanks Ticker.

Sabby, you are welcome to borrow my family. Guaranteed to drive you permenantly insane.


PyroGrl - Jul 14, 2004 1:42 am (#1643 of 2965)

Hey Sabby, maybe you should be a Healer, not a patient. *looks thoughtful*


Liz Mann - Jul 14, 2004 6:20 pm (#1644 of 2965)

Back at St. Mungo’s . . .

*walks in after being gone for two weeks in Philly* Hello? HELLOOOOOOOOO!? Anyone here? Oh look, a note! *picks up note Viola left on the floor* Lets see, the polish... *accidentally touches a can of peas, and is whisked off to Lithuania* Well... I'll go ask for directions... glad I have my wan-I mean, my flute.


prof sprout - Jul 15, 2004 3:47 pm (#1646 of 2965)

*Apparates to Luthuania.*

Here Emily, this a port key to get to Kenya. I don't want anyone getting suspicious of your um flute, thats it your flute. -_^

*Apparates back to Kenya.*

Good thing your guys have tracking devices before matches. Don't worry, you are not being tracked all the time, it just goes off if there is a Quiditich match and you are in the wrong country and the match is about to start. I get a signal from the giant sq..., I mean the sea, to let me know you are not at St. Mungos or the Quidditch pitch. I am the only person from St. Mungos that has this privileged information.


Sabotage - Jul 15, 2004 4:18 pm (#1647 of 2965)

I'm going to read the books all over again this summer, then I might become insane once more.

Liz, I thought maybe you'd been trying a new WWW product.

Welcome back, Emily! Or forward, or to Lithuania or just welcome, I guess!

So, in keeping with the irritating repeated lines theme:

Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet?

And again, back at St. Mungo’s . . . .

I'm back! *looks around for someone...anyone, and finds a note* How could they go to Kenya w/o one of their beaters? Jeepers! I hope I haven't been replaced! I was only gone for about 3 weeks! *quickly apparates to Kenya*

Still at St. Mungo’s . . .

*Drops exhausted into cushy armchair from the front entrance hall*

For cryin' out loud... I thought I'd never get back here! 264 posts I had to read to play catch -up! And quite a few birthday parties I missed! I really hate that worst of all! Here, you birthday kiddies, 20 pound bags of St. M&M's just for you. I would have gotten you more, but that stupid Stan Shunpike over charged me for a "'ot wat'r bottl'" and left me totally broke. I subsisted on shoelaces and the cold cheese left over on those papers that cheewseburgers come in on my trip back here.

I was going to apperate, but I was dedicated to returning here in a completely muggle fashion. I can tell you, never again!

(Oh, and don't pay any attention to that "50 galleon limit" Kip imposed on Lucius's credit card a while back...I overheard Lucius tell Kip he'd give Kip his very own female genie in a bottle if he could keep Lucius's credit spending to a bare minimum this month! What does he need one of those things for... I ask you!)

*Notices letter laying on floor:*
Dear Istari, If you ever get back and find this note we are playing the Kenyan Kneezles in Africa...mumble mumble... Time and Date are... Oh, tartar sauce! I just got in! Oh, well, I must go and show my support...right after a quick bubble bath...


Liz Mann - Jul 17, 2004 1:12 pm (#1652 of 2965)

A female genie? Oh, Kip, you didn't fall for that?

Welcome back Istari and Dobby. You'd better hurry down here because the game starts almost as soon as we arrive and we're almost there.


dobbyiscool - Jul 17, 2004 5:16 pm (#1653 of 2965)

Wow, it's been awhile sense I've ridden my bedpan. I'd better practice while I wait for the team. *sets up a moving target, hops on bedpan and starts aiming bludgers at the target*


Liz Mann - Jul 17, 2004 5:42 pm (#1654 of 2965)

The musn't hurt Harry Potter! *smacks bludger at the target so hard the target is smashed into tiny peices* Er...I hope I can use Lucius' credit card to replace that.


Pinky - Jul 18, 2004 10:22 am (#1657 of 2965)

I do remember that I'm allowed to make tiny purchases each month on Lucius' credit card. I just can't remember how much. Dobbyiscool, I'll put a target on layaway, it should be paid for by the time you need to practice again for the next game.

Affiliate - (depending on who you are):

(Rancher) - young female horse

(Horse) - what she does to the hay

(Fisherman) - what you do to a fish before you cook it

(Politician) - the guy you want to do all the work, but still get credit for it

(Businessman) - what no one wants to be with Enron management


Generally though, I think as a noun, it is some one you are associated with.

Wandering, hurt, lost, frightened... for months. Needed - oh so - needed a rough-sheeted bed, homey meal of calamari and jello, quieting glide on a bedpan, abbyfetti, and the ministrations of a good nurse.

So needed St. Mungo's. Yet with every turn I found it boarded, locked, and unenterable. CLOSED!

I now find myself standing at (apparently) the last remaining open door.
Please someone play a restful rendition of "Something Wicked this way Comes" on the bagpipes.


A-is-for-Amy - Jul 20, 2004 3:34 am (#1670 of 2965)

Susurro! Where have you been? Come in! Come in! The others are in Kenya at a match, but if you'd like to grab a portkey with me, feel free. I was just about to join them. I was going to sit this game out, but rumor has it that the Weasleys are going to be there, and I can't pass up a chance to drool on... er... I mean, SEE Charlie.

Pinky - Jul 21, 2004 11:58 am (#1686 of 2965)

Er, not really sure, Carina. And I've even read the last 1684 posts. There've been a couple residents that temporarily went sane, but luckily we've found that monotonous repetitions will drag them back to our world. And er - there's been a lot of quidditch matches. And yellow rubber duck. And a jello submarine. And.... I'm not sure what else.

Hey Ticker, are we going to have to babyproof our room now that Aria is crawling?


Fawkes Forever - Jul 21, 2004 1:13 pm (#1687 of 2965)

Thanks Ticker *blush*

Liz... it's a good job one of us knows what's going on... I hope that doesn't mean you're turning all sane on us *shock horror*.... if you like I can sing my 'betcha don't know song again' Seeing as we're roomies I can sing it to you in your sleep too... I know how much you'd like that *manic grin* Liz... Liz.... why are you running away with your hands over your ears? ....Liz?

Carina.... can the dancing KBR join the cheerleading squad? Well it's a better mover than me.... but perhaps the muzzle should stay on.... especially when we put KBR in the uniform....

By the way Carina & Susurro... have you guys been hiding in the attic? Ot did you actually get to leave St Mungo’s?

Oh there’re the Kenyan Kneazles... this game is about to kick off *checks stands to see if any of our guests have arrived... notes the presence of some red heads & smiles to ones self*

PyroGrl - Jul 21, 2004 5:30 pm (#1689 of 2965)

Oooh, Liz, how far are you? (PC game, right?) I'm at the Dementor fighting lesson...darn Expecto Patronum, it's such a difficult spell.

**gets on bedpan** I'm nervous! This is the first time I've been nervous! Maybe it's all this heat...

Edited by Jul 21, 2004 11:23 am

I've finished. Three times! Though I didn't manage to get all the cards until the last time.

Expecto Patronum isn't that hard. Make sure the light is about half way down the wand before you cast. Then the moment it's hit the Dementor, move on to the next one. They should stay stunned long enough for you to get the rest if you're quick enough.


PyroGrl - Jul 21, 2004 7:11 pm (#1691 of 2965)

Yeah, except I have so much stuff on my computer that it's slower that it should be. *grumbles* I've got a couple cards, but not a whole lot. Still, the graphics are a lot better. I love the Draconifors spell! (Lapifors is ok...)

Anyway...Oh, look, there they are! There they are! I've gotta get their autographs...What do you MEAN, 'the game's about to start'? Oh...*starts to tremble*

I love Draconifors too. But there's another spell coming up that's even better - Glacius.

Glacius? Ooooh, sounds 'cool'! (PUN!!!)

I love flying as the dragon...You get to see where all the hidden areas are...such fun! Buckbeak flying was great too.

**zooms toward Harry, Hermione, and the Weasleys** Can I have your autographs? Harry, do you have any Seeker advice for me?? ... Yes, I know you have to catch the Snitch! How do you do the Wonky Faint? Sorry, Wronski Feint? ... Just like that? Ok! **gets autographs**


Liz Mann - Jul 21, 2004 9:33 pm (#1695 of 2965)

Don't fawn over him, will you, Pyro, you know how he hates that.


Ticker - Jul 21, 2004 11:51 pm (#1696 of 2965)
Edited by Jul 21, 2004 4:56 pm

OK! The ref is blowing his whistle to start the match. Liz & the Kneezles Captain are shaking hands... Oh, VERY good Liz! Eye contact is important with this team... the snitch is released, next the bludgers, and the quaffle is up, up, and in the Maniac's possession. YES!!! It's Liz - Ticker - Liz - Ticker - Liz - Amy - a nice shot to the right hoop... but no good.

Ooombagu blocks the toss & the Kneezles head back downfield. Apparently the Maniacs are employing their standard "wander onto the field" technique. Where is their Keeper? Who will it be this match? Istari (you have been practicing, right...)?

And a nice slam with the bludger by Dobby, unseating Chaser Nebu who apparently got too close to a group of fans... Is it just me or are we missing a Beater? and the Maniacs take possession...


PyroGrl - Jul 22, 2004 1:00 am (#1697 of 2965)

**is searching for the Snitch and "bumps" into Kneazles' Seeker** Whoops! Didn't see him!


**is seeing Snitches flying around head** Okay, that was uncalled for! A Bludger straight to the head! ... Is that the Snitch?


A-is-for-Amy - Jul 22, 2004 2:00 am (#1698 of 2965)

I've got a pocket full of pepper imps - is it illegal to breath fire during the game? *waves* Hi Charlie!


Carina - Jul 22, 2004 3:56 am (#1699 of 2965)

I'm not exactly sure WHERE I've been, but I'm sure it's been somewhere.

Rubber ducks and Jello submarines? It's like I never left.


PyroGrl - Jul 22, 2004 4:32 am (#1700 of 2965)

LOL, in my Schnoogle fanfic I have a side character named Devon Murray...I swear it was a name I pulled out of a hat...and I just found out that Devon Murray plays Seamus Finnigan in the movies...HaHa...*is very hyper from large amounts of Root beer*

Snitchy Snitchy Snoo, where are you? I've to catch you right now...

Will you lot stop talking to members of the crowd and get on with the game? The Kneezles' top scorer is going for goal! Look out -

Wow! We show off, I mean play, really good for our fans. (Very impressive moves Pyro!)

*Is too busy counting Beaters (an awfully high number for me) to notice bludger flying at head... CRUMP!*

Let's hope I don't wake up for a week - (actually , I'm going on a family vacation via train to Washington State so... I hope to come back to insanity in about a week back in St. Mungo's - good luck with the rest of the game...)

Wheeee ha!

Well, went to a Muggle mall to celebrate and bought Eats, Shoots and Leaves. Unfortunately I'm not allowed to read it until Thursday, when I go to Ottawa. *grumbles about unfairness at not being allowed to read it or go to the HP Convention* Hopefully we can run the final games before Thursday so I can be here for them, otherwise you won't have a Seeker. *gasp!*

It's going great, Abby. We've just won against the Kenyan Kneezles and now we're into the finals!!

No Seeker?! Good job we have to head straight over to the next match. Everyone on board the Giant Peach. By the way, does anyone know who we're playing against or where it is exactly that we have to go?

Great Job, Everyone! Great catch, Pyro! Nice pom-poms, Fawkes, don't you think, Bill? *Bill nods head* And quite a nice somersault, huh, Bill? *Bill grins wider and nods head faster* Gee, Fawkes, looks like you've sprained your ankle there. Looks pretty swollen, too.

And you're limping a little.

*Elbows Fawkes* And you're limping a little!! Better get some ice on that right quick. Do you mind helping her, Bill? Alternate warm and cold compresses 20 minutes on, 20 minutes off. Keep your ankle elevated. I said, that means keep off your ankle as much as you can.

Is there someone who can help you out for a bit, Fawkes? Bill, would you mind? That's a good fellow.

Ok, Fawkes, with a little tender, loving care you should be up and about with Bill...uh...with no problem

(Actually for those of you out there ready to argue about the care of that ankle, yeah I know it's keep elevated and use cold compressses on/off every 20 minutes for 24 hours or more, then warm as directed, but I wanted to keep Bill busy)


Susurro Notities - Jul 25, 2004 1:26 am (#1724 of 2965)

Oh wonderful - we won! Where is it we are going on this very slippery giant peach?
Fawkes you were amazing (what position did you play) and - oh - everyone else was wonderful too - ok - I confess - I only came so that canned peas could be useful and for the guys - no I meant for the hot dogs, souvenir Maniac straight jackets, and the butterbeer.
I will try to pay more attention at the finals...Quidditch right?


Istari Jones - Jul 25, 2004 3:27 am (#1725 of 2965)

I'm bored. Wish it was full moon. (Not really. I wouldn't want to intentionally inflict something like that on Lupin.) Is it anyone's birthday coming up? Anything we can have a party for? Or maybe we can have an elegant dinner party? A Yard Sale? Flooded bathroom?


PyroGrl - Jul 25, 2004 3:54 am (#1726 of 2965)

BEDPAN Quidditch. It's special Smile.

Oh, Oh! The Canadian Derby (horseracing) is on August 28. We could throw an early Thestral race if you're bored, Istari:).

Wonderful idea Liz. What better way to celebrate a Quidditch victory than a dinner party in a flooded bathroom during a yard sale with sewage and a Thestral race! Can we wear hats like at the Kentucky Derby and drink milk like at the Indianapolis 500?


PyroGrl - Jul 26, 2004 1:45 am (#1733 of 2965)

Peanut butter, jam sandwiches, pancakes and ham red radishes, Heaven knooooooows....Anything gooooooes! Milk! Anything goes!

Anyone mention party..... woohoo, sounds good to me... get Gina to ask 'DJ Sev' if he'll play a few tunes, oh & we'll need to hunt out the disco ball again....

What’s that Istari.... Sprained ankle? Huh? .... Oh... thats...right.... it does feel a bit tender *hobble hobble... leans on Bill* *whisper* Thanks Guys... *huge over-exaggerated wink & thumbs up at Istari & Liz behind Bills back as he helps her into the Giant Peach* Thanks William ... *blush*

Hermionefan(#1) - Jul 26, 2004 2:50 pm (#1736 of 2965)

A dinner party in a flooded bathroom during a yard sale with sewage and a Thestral race?! COOL! But we don't have anything to sell, or do we? Maybe we should have a talent show instead? Or we could buy Gred and Forge's latest merchandise, Amusement in a Can. All you have to do is open the can, and a full size amusement park pops out! George told me that there's no reason wizards shouldn't get to have some Muggle fun every once in a while! Maybe we could have a yard sale, a talent show, and an amusement park at the same time during our dinner party in a flooded bathroom with sewage and a Thestral race? Or would that be too confusing?

Oh yes, I can't believe I forgot to congratulate everyone! Congrats on the match! Sorry I missed it! (I was at camp). On to the finals soon!


A-is-for-Amy - Jul 26, 2004 4:01 pm (#1737 of 2965)
Edited by Jul 26, 2004 9:09 am

Thanks Fawkes, but it isn't Mundungus I'm worried about. I think I'll just head back to St. Mungo’s and start getting ready for the party by flooding the bathrooms (sans sewage, thank you very much) and I'll owl Gred and Forge for the Amusement in a Can - sounds like something that might fit on the roof!

BTW - I don't remember who asked, but it's not Moraco, it's Monaco. It's a principality in Western Europe, bordering the Mediterranean Sea on the southern coast of France, near the border with Italy. It's the second smallest independent state (next to the Vatican, i think), and only has a population of about 32000 - mostly multi-millionairs.

Why are you so cramped?

I tell you, WEEKS without a computer, I have slowly been going sane, but I can feel that slipping away just by reading so many posts!

Anyway, I'm there, or at least I think (wait a minute, since when do I think!?) but there's noone else here. I guess I just have to wait.

And I'mm in for a party in a flooded basement during a garage sale, with a thestral race... just maybe, could we leave the sewage?

  • 1 old edition "Greatest Potions Disasters of the 20th Century"
  • 3 unused jars of 'Grease Be Gone' hair potion
  • 2 sets of men's black robes (inner pockets have burn holes and irreparable tears)
  • A stack of 'Potions Monthly' magazine dating back 5 years, slightly mouldy and dusty

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JKR & HARRY! I almost forgot! It's just a funny coincidence that I reserved tickets to see POA at IMAX tonight - how col is that! If my calculations are correct, if Harry survives the series, he's 23 today!


Liz Mann - Aug 1, 2004 3:42 pm (#1765 of 2965)

Please don't say 'if Harry survives the series'.

A-is-for-Amy - Aug 1, 2004 11:39 pm (#1768 of 2965)

I'm just tagging all of the items for the garage sale - but I can't seem to find the garage!


PyroGrl - Aug 2, 2004 8:17 pm (#1769 of 2965)

I'm popping in to say I'm alive, the plane flight was alright, but the car ride...we rented a Grand Marquis, and they're too smooth of a ride for me; I get carsick in them. I prefer broomsticks and bedpans to these Muggle contraptions...


Liz Mann - Aug 2, 2004 9:45 pm (#1770 of 2965)

The peach has arrived! Everybody off and down to the pitch! We have to warm up before the big game. The other team should be here soon and the crowd starts arriving in an hour.


Gina R Snape - Aug 3, 2004 12:57 am (#1771 of 2965)

Aaaawwww, poor Pyro.

I prefer apparition and floo myself, even with the motion sickness. Much better than a car ride.


Fawkes Forever - Aug 3, 2004 1:34 pm (#1772 of 2965)

Don't think I ever want to see another peach as long as I live... *gets manic* need to get the peach smell off me *scrub scrub* Go away peachy smell *scrub scrub*

No, guys, this isn't a new Cheer Move.... I'm trying to cleanse myself of all things peach... *scrub*


Liz Mann - Aug 3, 2004 2:27 pm (#1773 of 2965)

Hm... maybe we should go back to using the rubber duck or the jello sub in future. Can someone let the seagulls go? They're exhausted?

*starts practicing with the Quaffle*


Viola Intonada - Aug 5, 2004 9:21 pm (#1774 of 2965)

Ow, Amy!!! Will you please pay attention to what you are doing? You just put a tag on my forhead!! (By the way, how much did you tag me for?)

Tired of peaches? Oops, I guess I will have to take peach jello off the menu for the party...

*noticies pretty butterfly fluttering by* I must not chase it, I must not chase it. I have a bedpan quidditch match to referee. I must not chase it, I must not chase it......


A-is-for-Amy - Aug 5, 2004 10:30 pm (#1775 of 2965)

Sorry about that Viola! Looks like you're tagged at 16 galleons - let me change that to "priceless" and you'll be good to go! Liz must have put a charm on her stuff - every time I try to take things out and tag them, they growl menacingly and fly back to her room. This is going to be harder than I thought!

OOooo! I'm priceless. Wahoo!

I think everyone has had enough time to practice.

Wwwwwuh! *Wakes up rather abruptly from bludger unconsciousness*

What the heck?!? When did the Kneezles change uniforms to Blue & Silver? And get all those nicely tanned white players? Why does it say

Home: Monaco - 0

Visitors: St. Mungo's - 0

Why is my head on backwards? Oh, my mistake... I'm just draped over my bedpan funny... I feel so disoriented.

*Hears whistle, grabs quaffle, removes sales tag, flies toward goal, decides it really doesn't matter where I am or why...*

I just hope this is the right goal post...


Sabotage - Aug 6, 2004 11:21 pm (#1779 of 2965)

Hi guys I'm back. I went away for a while and came back to a hundred and some messages, can someone sum up the past few weeks for me?


Ticker - Aug 6, 2004 11:55 pm (#1780 of 2965)

Yeah, welcome back Sabby! We're playing in the Cup final against Monaco! The game started two posts before yours. You're on the team, aren't you? Let's get going!

*steals Quaffle from opposing Chaser and goes into a Woollongong Shimmy with other St Mungo's Chasers*


Sabotage - Aug 7, 2004 6:50 pm (#1782 of 2965)

What am I on the team?! I remember being a seeker for a while when Pyro was kidnapped by the beavers but then I went sane and forgot my position! Help!


Sabotage - Aug 7, 2004 6:50 pm (#1783 of 2965)

*hops on bedpan and waits for someone to tell her what position she plays*


Liz Mann - Aug 7, 2004 7:50 pm (#1784 of 2965)

Erm... I've misplaced the note I made of who was playing what.


PyroGrl - Aug 7, 2004 10:44 pm (#1785 of 2965)

**zooms around on bedpan** Gee, I hope I catch the Snitch quickly because I have an appointment soon and it may cut into the match. THERE'S THE SNITCH! ...oh no wait, that's just Sabby's watch.

(Sabby, where have you BEEN?!!?!?!?!)


Sabotage - Aug 8, 2004 1:21 am (#1786 of 2965)

Hey, I don't mind what I play just tell me where to go.

(Pyro! I went on a horrid camping journey for three weeks! *soars into the air and does a few loop-it-y loops* Are you back from where ever you went yet? *does more loop-it-y loops*)


Ticker - Aug 8, 2004 2:48 am (#1787 of 2965)
Edited by Aug 7, 2004 7:55 pm

Uh..., no Sabby - she's not back - you just think you're getting messages from her...

*Swipes extra Beater’s Bat from opposing team member & throws it to Sabby...* One per beater - even if you do have 4 arms! Geez, just 'cuz we're from St. Mungo's doesn't mean you can get away with that crazy stuff! Hrmmfff!

Sabby - you'll also have to cover the hoops since we can't seem to get Blast out of the Mardi Gras float, or maybe someone else brought their bedpan?

Dobby, NO! Sabby is on our team!

Cool! I just love the Woollongong Shimmy! Ooooh shimmy, shimmy - Woollongong shimmy, shimmy! (Makes a really long pass to Amy - or is that Istari? - too far for me to see - & hopes she'll catch it.)


PyroGrl - Aug 8, 2004 4:06 pm (#1788 of 2965)

**Spots Snitch and dives after it**


Sabotage - Aug 8, 2004 5:45 pm (#1789 of 2965)

*takes bat and starts randomly knocking it on the hoops* What fun!

*hits a bludger through on of the opposing teams hoops* Does that count as a goal?


Fawkes Forever - Aug 9, 2004 3:14 pm (#1790 of 2965)

ooh oooh.. I've got a bedpan... where do ya want me to play?


Hermionefan(#1) - Aug 9, 2004 7:48 pm (#1791 of 2965)

Wait, is this the actual World Cup? If it is, GOO MANIACS!!! WOOHOO!! YOU ROCK!!! YAY!!! Keep it up team!


Sabotage - Aug 9, 2004 7:52 pm (#1792 of 2965)

*gets bored waiting by the hoops and soars off to whack the bludgers*

(Pyro! Check your LE messages.)


Viola Intonada - Aug 10, 2004 4:45 pm (#1793 of 2965)

Fawkes, why don't you be the keeper so that Sabby can put her full attention to being a beater, sound good?


Liz Mann - Aug 10, 2004 5:17 pm (#1794 of 2965)
Edited by Aug 10, 2004 10:25 am

Oh darn it, I can't remember who the original team were. All I can remember was that Amy, Tinker and I were Chasers and I think Gina was a Beater, and Pyro is Seeker. Oh, and Viola is ref. But apart from that. I know Dobby replaced one of the Beaters but I can't remember which one.

Edit: Yey! I searched through the previous St Mungo's thread and found a list of the original team members!

Chasers - me, Tinker and Amy
Beaters - Gina and Lindsay (now Dobby and... I'm not sure who else)
Keeper - Blast
Seeker - Pyro
Ref - Viola
Commentator - Marie E
Mascott - Hem Hem

Now, who is our other current beater apart from Dobby? (I'm making a note of this so we don't forget again).


Gina R Snape - Aug 10, 2004 6:42 pm (#1795 of 2965)

I checked out of the team, Liz. I prefer to engage in other pursuits.

What's happening with this yard sale? Severus has been asking questions about my sudden interest in his Potions Monthly magazines and I want them out of the house already!


Liz Mann - Aug 10, 2004 7:41 pm (#1796 of 2965)

It must have been you that Dobby replaced then. Where is Lindsay?


PyroGrl - Aug 10, 2004 9:46 pm (#1797 of 2965)

**is still diving for the Snitch** Guys, did you know there's a hole in the ground and I'm chasing the Snitch right through it? Whee!!


Gina R Snape - Aug 11, 2004 12:36 am (#1798 of 2965)

Uh-oh. You remember what happened to Alice when she went down a hole, don't you?


Sabotage - Aug 11, 2004 1:29 am (#1799 of 2965)

She went tumbling down it?


A-is-for-Amy - Aug 11, 2004 1:55 am (#1800 of 2965)

Sorry, I gave up my chaser spot some time ago - I don't remember who took it, though. I'm here at St. Mungo's since I had a spot of trouble in Monaco and am unable to cross their borders without... trouble. I've flooded all the bathrooms in preparation for the team's return, and have tagged all the stuff for the garage sale, but I still can't find the garage!

Good luck team!

*bumbles in looking for Marè's disco ball so as to have a birthday party for Betty* Has anyone actually seen the disco ball lately? Has anyone actually seen Blast lately? *bumbles out*


Susurro Notities - Aug 11, 2004 7:38 am (#1802 of 2965)

Amy, Please tag the following items:

  • cracked cauldron,
  • bent broom,
  • disheveled dress robe,
  • horrible hat (from cracker),
  • terrible tent - 3 rooms - used once,
  • distressed disco ball, and
  • signed photo of Lockhart.

I would do this myself but am tied up at World Cup - cheering, socializing, and attempting to remove peach stains and sticky.
I am also sorting through recipes - Treacle tart, cauldron cakes, custard creams, steak and kidney pie, stoat sandwich, pumpkin juice, butter beer, jello, calamari - what does everyone fancy for the dinner?


Marè - Aug 11, 2004 8:32 am (#1803 of 2965)
Edited by Aug 11, 2004 1:32 am

PfffFFFF I've been lost in the basement! (must be where I lost the discoball...)
Are you still playing quidditch, isn't season almost over?

I'm very interested in that garagesale. I lost several itmes during my stay here, any chance I could find them there? I'll have to find the garage, I guess. No-one has located it yet? Well if Pyro is down the same hole as Alice went in, maybe she can check with the Chesshire Cat.

Or maybe that wouldn't help at all...

PS Treacle Tart for dinner sounds good!


Fawkes Forever - Aug 11, 2004 11:02 am (#1804 of 2965)

ooh Keeper... I can do that (I think) *makes dive at incoming quaffle... flails arms uselessly in the air & just about manages to stay on the bedpan.. and as luck would have it saves the quaffle & throws it back to Liz* See... I'm a natural... *gives a shifty 'Lockhart look' at the rest of the team*

Ron taught me all he knows ... honest... *flings herself at quaffle again & saves it.... but only really 'cus it wacks off her incredibly thick head... slighly stunned she grins & passes it back to Liz again* Liz... you never said you had a twin....


Liz Mann - Aug 11, 2004 12:41 pm (#1805 of 2965)

Erm... Fawkes, maybe it would be best if you filled one of the Chaser or Beater positions. We seem to have one of each missing at the moment.

Okay I missed something, why are we having this garagesale? Why tenthousand galleons?
And who-ever are we going to get to buy an item (and what are we going to do with all the ones left??)

Other than that: Genius Amy!


Ticker - Aug 11, 2004 3:03 pm (#1808 of 2965)
Edited by Aug 11, 2004 8:05 am

OK Folks! Back from my break (too bad those players never get one - har, har, har), this is Ben Toudashape, your favorite Beater-Turned-Comentator, coming to you live (what else?) from the Bedpan Quidditch World Cup!!!

We're on day six & what a match! If you're just tuning in you've missed 270 points by the Monaco Mastodons, and 210 points by the St. Mungo's Maniacs (currently the favorite coming into this match, with their undefeated record). That's not too shabby of an accomplishment if you ask me, seeing as how they've still not put their entire team together. Their last match was played in it's entirety without a Keeper. So far this game Team Captain & Chaser Liz is joined by Chaser Ticker, Seeker Pyro, Beater Sabby, and Cheerleader turned Keeper Fawkes who is busy wow-ing the crowd with her acrobatic keeping skills. They're still down two players unless Beater Dobby & Chaser Istari show up - but what a show, and I mean whaaaat a show!

We've seen some unprecedented moves from this team. The Woollongong Shimmy is going to go down as one of the most challenging plays in history - and the Maniacs have made excellent use of it in this game. Famed Seeker Pyro, back for good with the Maniacs after a breif interlude in Canada, has thrilled the crowd with her daring dives & feints.

Alright! Let's pick up the action...

Maniacs in possession - Liz & Ticker drive down the field narrowly avoiding bludger after bludger & guarded quite aggressively by teammate Sabby who has already sent three of the Monaco players to the ground. They shoot & SCORE!!! 270 to 220 Monaco's favor!

Monaco Team Captain is trying to impress his fans with some fancy quaffle maneuvering, but Liz swoops in for an interception and.....

SCORES! Only 40 points between them now.

Our Seeker-Cam has had a hard time keeping up with Pyro, but we think we've spotted her closely on the tail of a flicker of gold in the Monaco underground. Let me tell you folks, this is as dangerous as it is unprecedented. Even if she doesn't get lost, or hit by a train, the catch won't count unless the Referee sees it on the Pitch. Ooooh, and we've just lost our Seeker-Cam to an oncoming muggle train. Let's hope Pyro fares better...

Hey Liz & Ticker ... *waves whilst dangling precariously off Bedpan* Tell you what... give me a bat & I'll try & get rid of a few bludgers... or else..... ask Gred or Forge to fill in... I seen them wandering aimlessly around the pitch a few moments ago... well it might not have been the twins.. seeing as I had a touch of the 'ol double vision at the time, but I think it definitely was a Weasley...


Marè - Aug 11, 2004 5:27 pm (#1810 of 2965)

Wel it couldn't have been Bill, because obviously you would have left your post to check it out then .

You know what, if you're still a player short, I want to give it a try. (What do I have to do?)
But I'm not really used to bedpans. Where I come from we fly on big round yellow cheeses. Worked really well, untill one of our opponents decided to eat them. That's the only match I lost so far. (also the only one I ever played....)


Sabotage - Aug 11, 2004 5:56 pm (#1811 of 2965)
Edited by Aug 11, 2004 10:57 am

*whacks the beater away iratibly (excuse my spelling... can someone tell me how to spell this word?)* Come on Pyro, these nasty things are trying to kill us! Maybe the other team bewitched them because the only time a bludger has attempted to hit a Mastodon is when I whack it at them!


Liz Mann - Aug 11, 2004 6:21 pm (#1812 of 2965)

'Irritably' (I think ).

*scores another ten points with the Quaffle*

Any sign of the Snitch yet, Pyro? Pyro? Hey, where'd Pyro go? She did come out of that hole, right??


Gina R Snape - Aug 11, 2004 8:07 pm (#1813 of 2965)

Those were cheeses, Marè?


Marè - Aug 11, 2004 9:35 pm (#1814 of 2965)

Er ... yes, what did you think they were?


Ticker - Aug 12, 2004 3:36 am (#1815 of 2965)

(Oh my! Gina, I woke Aria up laughing so hard at your Breck Boy! I LOVE it!)

Uh, Marè, do they have bedpan-type of humor about cheese in your country? You can use that extra bedpan, just make sure there's no Limburger in it... on second though, maybe it would help...


Marè - Aug 12, 2004 7:31 am (#1816 of 2965)
Edited by Aug 12, 2004 12:32 am

I don't think we have any humor about cheese. Probably why I didn't get the joke...

PS Limburger would help, seeing how I'm from the province Limburg. Only it's kind of a smelly sort of cheese right? Maybe I can scare some people away before I pass out.

Okay 3... 2.. 1... and I'm off!


. . . you know grass is nice, grass is definitely an underestimated part of quidditch...


Liz Mann - Aug 12, 2004 11:26 am (#1817 of 2965)

I don't think we have any humor about cheese.

You just reminded me of the fan art that I'm currently using for my desktop wallpaper.


It was originally from Artistic Alley (part of Fiction Alley).

I don't know what that was all about, but it made me laugh!


Liz Mann - Aug 12, 2004 8:36 pm (#1819 of 2965)

I'm not quite sure, either. I think it's just supposed to be a situation where cheese is the only object they have so they attack him with it.


Pigwidgeon - Aug 13, 2004 3:24 am (#1820 of 2965)

You're all in Kenya? But that's really, really far away! Oh well. *illegally Apparates to Kenya, ignoring the whole underage thing*

Here I am in Kenya. But this place is deserted. Where are you all? Wait, a newspaper clipping *reads paper* Ohhhhhh, you guys beat the Kneezles and are off to Monaco to play their nameless team. Better take a Portkey there, I don't want to get caught Apparating. But all the Portkeys are at St. Mungo's. And to go back there, I'd have to Apparate! Oh, decisions.

Got it. Could some kind fellow insane resident please come here (the stadium where you played your last match) and bring a Portkey so I can get to Monaco. Thanks. If you come, I'll tell you all about camp.

I'll also swear to not go away for so long until camp next summer.

Hey guys, I'm here. Thanks for the canary creams Pinky. It was actually south, then east, then a hard turn north-northwest (I asked some local seagulls on the way) but I found it. Now I'm here to...oh yeah...be a fan...GO MANIACS!

Thanks & welcome Elfcat. I didn't know that. I was informed recently however that Coconut Canary Creams increase the average speed of the eater regardless whether you are a sparrow or canary - (thanks to Acceber & Pinky).

Ah yes, the KBR. KBR used to roam the hallways, terrorizing even us, the inmates. And of course, there was the giant sloth thing. Ack - it's been so long ago I hardly remember him! I think his name was Lime Jello...

Helllloooo ElfCat.... nice to see you here ... now 'ol Sev in his Cheerleading outfit, now that was a sight!

*dodges bludger whilst catching a quaffle zooming towards the middle goal hoop*

Am I still the temp keeper? I'll just keep defending the hoops until I'm told otherwise shall I *attempts a Ron Weasley style dive... just about manages to hang on to broom as she kicks the quaffle back over to the other side of the pitch.... by some miracle it goes straight through the hoop on the other side* Woohoo... was that legal.. does that count as a goal.. if so... *looks around shiftly* I soooo meant to do that... go me!

I'm impressed Fawkes!

Oh, wait I wasn't a cheerleader, I was a player! That's right, I was a... erm Liz? LIZ?! What am I suppossed to do here?

And er, is Pyro back from wonderland yet? Oh no, rabbit hole! It just dawned on me: She got eaten by KBR! Disaster!

Wait a sec, if Pyro is down there chasing the snitch and the other seeker isn't AND she was attacked by the KBR, the game will never end! :-O oh the horror! Sorry, did I say horror? I meant "fun"

I'll officially hand over my spot as beater considering I've missed the last... oh- all the games but the first? *sniffs* I'm a bad team member!

This is getting a bit out of hand. The opposing team may as well go home. We're up by about 900. Er, on second thought, I may as well go home. I hear a hammock in the shade calling my name. Oh, wait... that looks like Fawkes takin' a wee nap between the hoops under an inflated pom-pom. Awww, beat me to it. I call next nap.

Hmm, if I'm a cheerleader, I guess I ought to cheer, eh? *begins to cheer* How funky is your Chicken?!? How funky is your Chicken?!? How Loose is your goose?!? Our goose is totally loose!! So come all you Mungo's fans, so come on all you Mungo's fans, and shake your caboose!! GOOO MANIACS!!!!

Nah, learned it at teen conference. We were district three, so where it says "Mungo's" it was D-3.

(hmmm, what's another good one?) Every where we go-o! (crowd echoes: EVERY WHERE WE GO-O!!!) People want to kno-ow, (PEOPLE WANT TO KNO-OW!!) Who we a-re! (WHO WE A-ARE!!) So we tell them, (SO WE TELL THEM!!) We are the Maniacs!! (WE ARE THE MANIACS!!!!!) Mighty mighty Maniacs!!!! (MIGHTY MIGHTY MANIACS!!!!!!) GOOO MANIACS!!

P.S.- my best friend is a cheerleader for real, so I know a million of these.


dobbyiscool - Aug 18, 2004 8:50 pm (#1852 of 2965)

What's the score? After this game, I think we need to seriously reorganize our team. I know I play beater, but I forgot who I replaced.

As for LJ, we lost that poor sloth around the time our disco ball was misplaced. Since then, he has been sighted in the attic and lurking around St. Mungo’s.

So...should we send a search party for the Pyro and the snitch? We'd need someone small enough to fit down that hole. It's amazing that Pyro fit.

OK, I thought you all might like to know that I am officially and permanently ensuring that I am, and will always be, insane. I have decided to take another illegal time turner trip all the way back to the Saint Mungo's thread before this one. I'm taking a forward time-turner as well this time, though, so that when I get up to the move I can get back to the present.

*takes out a little hour glass, turns it over several times, and disappears*


Wow! This is so cool! I've just witnessed the naming of the purple sloth, the discovery of evil Jello, and the creation of flying bedpans! How Cool!

Uh huh... I think the word is "avatar". Are you playing beater? Gimme the bat and I'll take a whack at it (corny pun). *zooms off on flying bedpan towards the nearest bludger* TAKE THAT, EVIL MONACO KEEPER!!! *whack* ooh, hey, I'm good at this! What do you mean that was Fawkes? *continues to fire bludgers at random players*

Acceber, let's just whip a quick polyjuice here... *snips lock from Fawkes' head* There you go - just drink this, and you can take Fawkes' place and no one will ever know.

Kasse, welcome! Don't eat the jello or any calamari, and if you need anything, just ask. We can use Lucius' credit card for small purchases.

Er, guys? We've been away from home for a long time. I'm getting a little homesick... *sniff* And, well, I don't want to alarm anyone, but I thought I heard a rumour that other things might be moving into our beloved, and apparently abandoned, St. Mungo’s.


Viola Intonada - Aug 21, 2004 2:16 am (#1866 of 2965)

Welcome to all of the new inmates!

Sorry, I got distracted by some butterflies and haven't been doing a very good job of ref'ing lately. *hangs head in shame*

Sabby, I don't understand why you needed to take a break to go to the Loo, don't you ride a flying bedpan????

Alright, I'm really going to concentrate hard on the game. I'm not going to let anything distract me. Not a thing, nope, noda...oh, what a pretty butterfly...*wonders off after buttterfly*

Yes, once again, this is Ben Toudashape, your favorite Beater-Turned-Comentator, coming to you live from the Bedpan Quidditch World Cup!!! We've seen just about everything in this game, and I mean everything. Apparently confusion is still St Mungo's most effective game strategy. It's provided for an all-time record lead for the Maniacs of 1470 to the Mastodons 310.

On the field for the Mastodons is their Team Captain & one chaser. The rest have been knocked out of play. For the Maniacs,... well,... it's really hard to say who's on the field. It seems to have turned into a camp-out. The fans have set up a beach volley-ball game with the refs, and the mascots have taken over the vending areas, resulting in the worst hot-dog you will ever find.

The seekers have not been seen or heard from in days since the snitch headed down a rabbit hole & ended up in the Monaco underground. However, yours truly has been let in on some behind-the-scenes events, and am proud to bring you live this latest development.

Medi-wizards, (though not allowed to intervene while a player is still on their bedpan), have located St Mungo's seeker on the #5 Downtown loop and the Mastodon's seeker was last seen on the 830 train headed to Oslo.

Now you may be wondering what these fine players are doing ON muggle trains and why they don't just get OFF. Well, of course it's more complicated than that. They both seem to be stuck in the grill or cattle guard (as I've heard it called), and apparently even muggles do not generally ride there. Rules of the game & Laws governing magic in strictly muggle areas are making intervention nearly impossible.

What the Bedpan Quidditch Officials have come up with involves switching the engine car & conductor with one magically made for this special occasion. Needless to say, the paperwork involved with the various ministries was a nightmare, but I think we should be seeing the #5 pulling out of the rabbit hole any time now...

...and yes, indeed! Here it is! It's up to the remaining team members to get Pyro out of the grill & find out if that frozen grimace means what we're all hoping it does...

The whole team, fans, refs, and even mascots are gathered round making it impossible for me to see, but wait... the crowd is parting, the Maniac's cheerleaders are attempting a pyramid (this will probably take a while...)

Maniac team members still on their bedpans are raising a very stiff form...a flicker of gold in Pyro's hand is verified by the referee, the whistle blows... the MANIACS HAVE WON!!!!

The St Mungo's Maniacs win the title of Bedpan Quidditch Champions with their win over the Monaco Mastodons. The final score is 1620 to 310. This is Ben Toudashape saying good night & good bye... and good grief, what a game... oops Quietus.

They did win didn't they?


A-is-for-Amy - Aug 23, 2004 1:31 pm (#1875 of 2965)

Yes, Su! All ready here! I never did find the garage, so I set everything up for the sale out in the garden. Lucius even came out (with a guard) to browse. He still out there saying, "I've got a broach just like that!" Maybe he'll want to buy it back! A bargain at only 10,000 galleons! I think that we just may have some extra spending money once he's done out there!


Liz Mann - Aug 23, 2004 2:29 pm (#1876 of 2965)

Calamari is on the menu? I think a lot of people at St Mungo's are boycotting that because of the giant squid.

Edited by Aug 23, 2004 11:51 am

Oh thank you for explaining that Liz. I did not understand why Pinky said not to eat the calamari.

Can somome be kind enough to explain to this new inmate why we use Lucius' credit card and why eating the jello is not a good idea ?


Pinky - Aug 23, 2004 9:59 pm (#1878 of 2965)

*takes Kasse by the hand and leads her to a soothing butterfly garden*

Kasse, dear, if you really want to know the answers to life's persistent questions (at least as they pertain to St. Mungo's), you will have to not only read this entire thread, but also the previous St. Mungo's thread. It's much easier just to accept things and not question them. For example, you wondered why we use Lucius' credit card. Well, why not? I will explain the jello thing -- the staff here at St. Mungo's has been known to attempt to control the inmates (us) with jello. So be wary of all jello, but particularly the green jello.

Amy, are you sure everything at St. Mungo's is still secure? I went to open the door to my room, and I heard a fierce growl in there.

Hmmm, weird... no wait... it's Becca... yoohooo Becca, thanks for covering for me during the match! So I take it we won.... woohoooo! World Cup Winners... we are the coolest.... and theres a party... even better.. think I'll steer clear of the calamari & peach pie however *gives involuntary shudder and pauses for a breath after that long sentence*

Oh, there’s a big sign up in the hallway... *reads sign* Happy... Birthday... Rupert! Whos Rupert? Is he an inmate... what’s that Lockhart? *Lockhart mutters something* Is he... is he really? Guys according to Gilderoy, he's some muggle actor with a mop of Red Hair, that sometimes pretends to be Ron Weasley... talk about off his rocker! Definitely in need of a room in St Mungo’s... Never heard of him myself.... perhaps he lives in the attic... but I don't know if muggles are allowed in here... If anyone is looking for me, I'll be in the ...

Maybe we could get the Weird Sisters to sing our theme song? I discovered it in my time travels, it's "Unwell" by Matchbox 20.

Meh, I'm busy trying to come up with an entry for the writing contest. And taking a break from Seeker practice. Oh, by the way, my high school is completely crazy. I was looking on their website, and on the phys. ed. curriculum it says that we study Quidditch.

Party! Party party party! Is it too late for me to put these in the garage/garden sale? I found them in my now-flooded bathroom. These are the items I would like to sell:

  • Laptop with the initials "R.G." on it
  • Gameboy with same initials
  • Karaoke machine with same initials

Hmmmmmmmm they seem to all be Muggle items. Maybe a Muggle's been living in my bathroom! Come to think of it, I have heard some pretty weird noises in there... but I thought that was the other inmates snoring, but it my have been this R.G. person... I'm scared now! *Looks around wildly* I'm sleeping somewhere else tonight! No wait, that's boring. Who wants to go on a flooded bathroom stakeout tonight to catch R.G.? Meet me in my room at 8:00 if you want to! Let's see, I can't tell you where my room is, because I forgot which ward I'm in.... how about we meet in the kitchen? Ok see ya then!

Ok - Ok - no jello and no calamari. How about cheesy potatoes, 7 layer salad, tuna cassarole, lima beans, liver and onions in addition to treacle tart, cauldron cakes, custard creams, steak and kidney pie, stoat sandwich, pumpkin juice, butter beer, and peach pie.
Can I charge this on the credit card?
Hint: A wonderful refreshing shower is easily obtained by just squeezing your slippers over your head after visiting the flooded bathroom!


prof sprout - Aug 27, 2004 1:58 pm (#1906 of 2965)

Woah, I've been locked up, all I remember is some big colorful wings. I just recently escaped. How is everyone feeling? Has anyone else had any problems while I have been gone? Sorry I haven't been around.


Pigwidgeon - Aug 27, 2004 3:18 pm (#1907 of 2965)

Whew! Just got back, and recovering from motion sickness from the ride on the Knight Bus.... Hey, anyone interested in my recipe for atomic-grade meatballs? Just take ground beef, bread crumbs, a bit of egg and lots and lots of spices, such as onion salt, garlic salt, regular table salt, pepper, cinnamon, pickling spices, ginger, nutmeg, oregano, cloves and dill. Oh yes, and about a half a bottle of Ceyenne pepper. You will need very generous amounts of each ingredient, particularly the spices -- is Lucius' credit card still handy?

(If any of you are wondering how I got this recipe, I actually made this in fifth grade. Those meatballs are -- still talked about, shall we say.)

Hey guys! I was working on flooding the bathrooms by overflowing the tubs, when I accidently fell in... Remind me to never go on another trip to the sewer. If it hadn't been for Myrtle, I might never have gotten out.

I missed cheering for you guys in the final match! Oh well, good job!

*walks through garden/garage sale* Hey, I have shirt like that! And it's only 10,000 Galleons!

BTW, does anyone know when the bedpan Quidditch season starts again? If we're still down few players, I'd like to try out.


Hermionefan(#1) - Aug 28, 2004 6:20 pm (#1910 of 2965)

Ooh you know what, I'll try out for Quidditch as well! I play basketball, that may help.


Liz Mann - Aug 28, 2004 7:44 pm (#1911 of 2965)

Let's just stay at St Mungo's again for a while, eh? I've missed this place.


Pinky - Aug 28, 2004 9:05 pm (#1912 of 2965)

Actually, I think Quidditch season just ended. St. Mungo's team is the reigning champ! Now, when was this yard sale going to be? *notices Lucius' credit card sitting on a table with a price tag attached* We can't sell that! *swipes it and puts it back in the communal business office located in the "I need to buy something but I don't have any money" ward*


Viola Intonada - Aug 28, 2004 11:59 pm (#1913 of 2965)

It's so good to be home again! Have we had any potential buyers come to look at our sale?

Sounds like the bathrooms are flooded and ready. I'm going to look for my rubber raft and get a nice cold drink with a little umbrella in it.


dobbyiscool - Aug 29, 2004 1:58 am (#1914 of 2965)

*jumps off the sink in the bathroom* CANNONBALL! *makes large splash, soaking Viola and causing her to spill her drink and losing her little umbrella* Sorry! Couldn't resist! *Runs and locks herself in her room before Viola can do anything*

Hey, Viola, you haven't played for us in aaaages! Play something.

I wonder where Abby is. I haven't seen her around.

Edit: She hasn't been here for 174 posts (since July 27th). Over a month.


Acceber - Aug 29, 2004 1:11 pm (#1916 of 2965)

Viola! Welcome back!

Speaking of Quidditch-does anyone have 'the list'? Because I know people have retired and given up their spots, or just done it temporarily. If someone more patient than myself could find the list and update it to match current changes (substitutions, replacements etc.), thanks. Then we could see what spots are open so eager people such as Emily, Hermy and myself could try out.


Pinky - Aug 29, 2004 2:36 pm (#1917 of 2965)

Liz, I've been wondering about Abby for quite a while too. Maybe she's in Egypt researching ancient runes? *scoops up a forlorn pile of Abbyfetti off the yard sale table*


A-is-for-Amy - Aug 29, 2004 4:02 pm (#1918 of 2965)

Will you all hold still for a moment? *Affixes price tags to each of the newly arrived inmates, er patients* There! That's better! Lucius is still shoppping, and I thought I saw Dumbledore wandering around by the chamberpot section...

Well, at the moment I think the team is as follows:

Chasers - Me, Tinker and .....

Beaters - Dobby and .....

Keeper - Blast

Seeker - Pyro

Referee - Viola

Commentator - Marie E

Mascott - Hem Hem

I can't remember who the cheerleaders were. Will the real cheerleaders please stand up? So we have a Chaser position and a Beater position open. Any volunteers? It's probably best to have back-up players as well, because not all our players might be around at any one time.


PyroGrl - Aug 29, 2004 6:07 pm (#1920 of 2965)

I think Sabby said she wanted to try out for Beater.


Hermionefan(#1) - Aug 29, 2004 6:31 pm (#1921 of 2965)

I'm a cheer leader! So fear me and all my cheer leadiness!


Fawkes Forever - Aug 30, 2004 11:01 am (#1922 of 2965)

Yoohooo.... I'm a cheerleader too.... *waggles pom poms in the air* As far as I remember, there were Hermy, Amy, Hagrid & Severus... to name but a few... all are welcome to try out. I was keeper for the last game... & quite enjoyed that, but it tired me out somewhat!

Hmmm Hermy... R.G. this wouldn't be the same muggle that had the birthday last week? Hmmm, I wonder!


Marè - Aug 30, 2004 11:29 am (#1923 of 2965)

*Snatches Fawkes's (I'm not sure if this is the correct use of the apostrophe, so sssst don't tell the chat thread people) pom poms and puts a price tag on them.*

Okay quidditch people, season is over for this season. It's time you all relaxed and tried to get some drinks with little umbrella's in them.

See there is one just floating by right now!

Who is in charge of this garage sale anyway? Do we have some-one keeping score of the profit or is it just snatch all the money you can and run? (To where?)

PS I'm thinking about redecorating (long word) my room, what do you guys think would suit the walls: Skyblue with enchanted little birds flying along, or a psychedelic mix with purple, pink, orange and red?


Fawkes Forever - Aug 30, 2004 1:39 pm (#1924 of 2965)

Apostrophe looks fine to me

Oooh drinkies with umbrellas in them.... cool... *slurp*... ummm nice drink, *someone swipes glass out of Fawkes hand* Hey... who put a price tag on my drink? Oh well never mind... might have a little sit down & relax for a minute *goes to sit down on nearby deckchair... but chair gets sold 2 milliseconds before she sits down... FLUMP*

Opps... *gets up from ground* perhaps I'll just stand over here in the corner.... *spots Draco rummaging through a box of items for sale.* Draco... no.. put down those pom poms.. no you can't have them... they are mine... mine I tells you! *jumps on Draco & tries to pry the pom poms from his fingers*

Emily - Aug 30, 2004 9:03 pm (#1927 of 2965)

I'm a cheer-leader, and I would like to try out for the beater position.

*sees Draco* hmmm... I think a good jinx is in order. *casts laughing charm, so it looks like he just started laughing at Pyro.. sorry Pyro!*


Elfcat - Aug 30, 2004 9:51 pm (#1928 of 2965)

I was a cheerleader for a little while but then became a replacement for the replacement beater. Cheerleading was easier.

Hey guys! Look what I found in Amy's room! *dumps wheelbarrow load of chocolate frogs onto table and starts putting price tags on them* Is 100 galleons each too much, do you think?

100 galleons for chocolate frogs? I'm thinking not enough! Or maybe you should just give them to me. *Greedily eyes chocolate frogs**Is too wrapped up with the chocolate to notice that someone has stuck a pricetag on back* Hey, what's this little white thing? I can't see it properly, it's in The Spot, you know, that little spot on your back that you can never see with one mirror, that little spot that is totally unitchable, that little spot where someone's stuck something on me? *Twists around trying to see little white paper**Ends up in a pretzel* A little help here? I can't tell my arms from my legs!


A-is-for-Amy - Aug 31, 2004 2:06 am (#1931 of 2965)

Ahem.... I would like to say that my chocolate frogs are sacrosanct - off limits, mine! Mine! Mine, I tell you... wait... no you can have those ones, the Weasley twins gave those ones to me ages ago, and I haven't been brave enough to try them.


dobbyiscool - Aug 31, 2004 2:32 am (#1932 of 2965)

*helps unpretzel Hermione* Say, who stuck this pricetag on her back? Honestly, 100 Galleons? She's worth WAY more then that! *sticks an 10,000 Galleon pricetag on The Spot on Hermione's back*

*tries to tune viola, gives up and plays anyway...*

I have not seen Abby in ages. I hope she didn't get locked into any luggage and hauled up into the attic again.

*Slosh, slosh, slosh...* Man, I love this place! Splashing around in my purple sloth-hair slippers (wringing them out over my head did not prove a very refreshing shower, by the way...), shopping at a huge garage sale (I'll take those empty spell-o-tape centers for 8 sickles please - what a bargain! Who would get rid of that?...), dancing to my favorite Don Ho songs on the Viola (puts on a pair of leg-warmers) (Ha, ha, ha - Splash Dance - har, har...), seeing my long lost fellow inmates (& staff - Hiya Prof. Sprout!), and finally getting back to my personal quest to lick my elbow (uh, uh,... uhh!).

Hey! Who put this price tag on Aria? She's priceless I tell ya!

Marè, I'd definitely go with the psychadelic paint. We wouldn't want your room to clash with the rest.

Hmmmm, I think I'll just sit by Su at the food table for a while... yummy!

Yep! It's good to be back... *leans back in chair & falls into the water.*

Call me slow, but that statement just made me realize how crazy we are. It was like a slap in the face...Just a sudden WHOOSH! Wow, are we honestly THAT insane at St Mungo's?!


Ticker - Aug 31, 2004 3:55 am (#1936 of 2965)

Gee pyro, you think something's wrong with that? I enjoy my luggage. Especially the one with the pocket that folds down into a waterbed. I must have spent half my life in my suitcase...

Fine - this is just fine - I have posted a menu several times but you all keep forgetting that this is a DINNER party in a flooded bathroom during a garage sale! - so if you want to eat something better than city chicken and green beans or more civilized than jello and calamari - you had all better get Sirius (sp intended)
I am within minutes of ordering hot dogs and baked beans...


Marè - Aug 31, 2004 8:46 am (#1938 of 2965)

I'm sorry for not reacting sooner Susurro. But I just haven't been able to figure out which part of the menu was eatable and which one wasn't.

May I suggest a pizza party? Allthough those beans sound good as well.


Ticker - Aug 31, 2004 6:54 pm (#1939 of 2965)

I would like 4 bites of everything on your previous menu please. And some creme brule - my current favorite dessert.

... and definitely some Sirius...


Liz Mann - Aug 31, 2004 7:30 pm (#1940 of 2965)

Congrats Emily, you are now our second Beater.

We still need another Chaser, though. And preferably a backup for each position.

Hey, who put my old broomstick on sale? I know I don't use it anymore, but it has memories, man! *looks at price tag* Wow! That's how much it's going for? Okay, you can sell it.


Sabotage - Aug 31, 2004 10:36 pm (#1941 of 2965)

I'll be a Chaser, I'm quite good at anything you put me on.

*Raises thumb, cocks head, smiles insanely* Please contribute to the "Help the Stiflers of the World" fund, I.E. Me.

School starts tomorrow. Do you think it's acceptable to skip the first day or so?

I thought that we needed a bit of extra excitement so I invited a few friends to our party: FLY, MY RABID PUPPIES AND KITTENS!!!!!


A-is-for-Amy - Sep 1, 2004 12:15 am (#1942 of 2965)

Hi all! *Slaps a price tag on Ticker's back in the pretense of a friendly shoulder pat* Lucius bought like five items, and so we have at least 50,000 galleons to spend on something. Diamond encrusted disco ball anyone?


Acceber - Sep 1, 2004 1:10 am (#1943 of 2965)

Disco, disco, disco!

You guys can have my old fuzzy blue slippers with yellow flowers on them. There's a hole in one of the toes. And take these Fizzing Whizbees also. The Weasley twins jinxed them.

I'll play Quidditch as a backup if needed. Any position is fine, but I do prefer Keeper .


PyroGrl - Sep 1, 2004 2:02 am (#1944 of 2965)

Well, I did offer to make meatballs earlier for the dinner ... any takers?

Oooooo ... chocolate frog!

*hops after chocolate frog, which escaped from a damaged box*

Can I get this one for half off, since it's already out of the box? Besides, that box has Dumbledore, and I have five of him already.


A-is-for-Amy - Sep 1, 2004 3:49 am (#1946 of 2965)

Ooooh - - a glass Draco doll just sitting here in Pyro's room! *slaps a price tag on it and sets in out on a sale table* Hey Su! I made a twenty- pound lasagne for the dinner - I left it in the oven to warm. I do hope it isn't underwater now... did anyone turn off the taps?

Oooooh! An escaped chocolate frog! *slaps a price tag on it and sets in out on a sale table*

Ooooh! a gold embossed bedpan... where did I put my price tags?...

Marie E. - Sep 1, 2004 4:32 am (#1947 of 2965)

I hear the gold ones are great for Bedpan Quidditch Seekers. Maybe you should hang onto that one!


Viola Intonada - Sep 1, 2004 4:49 pm (#1948 of 2965)

So Amy, how did you get Lucius to buy 5 items at 10,000 galleons each? Did you tell him that they belong to Voldemort at one time?


Hermionefan(#1) - May 9, 2004 6:22 pm (#1949 of 2965)

FOOD! Yum. I want some! *Rudely grabs food from random inmate* This is delicious! What is it? Wait, don't tell me, or I'll probably throw it all up. Sabby, school is just now starting for you? Mine started three weeks ago. During gym I was wondering what was happening during this little party we're having. How long will it last, anyway? Four, five weeks? A couple of days? Until the next Quidditch season? Whatever, This is fun! By the way, has anyone set up that Amusement Park gizmo yet? Yes! Fun!

Oh, Sabby and Acceber, congrats, you are now our new third Chaser and backup Keeper.

Roller coaster? See this is one of the reasons why I love this thread. In real life, I would never go on a roller coaster if you paid me. On here, I can do anything I want. So in answer to your question, Hermy, sure! *jumps on roller coaster*

Strangely enough, the stuff Lucius bought were one deflated giant rubber duck (I've called Moody to let him know where it was), one boot with pink laces and rhinstones that spell out the word 'fab', a weird sister's t-shirt, a jar of purple leaches and a puffskein with a very horrible dandruff problem. Go figure!

If Pyro is dead (apparently from school poisoning), does that mean we can sell the Draco stuff now? Draco was down here earlier looking around, and I think he'd fancy a doll fashioned to look like him...

Amy - go ahead and sell it. Draco would love a doll that looks like him. It will boost his already huge ego.

School? Not for a week, my friends. One more week of vacation, one more week of vacation, one more week of vacation *dances*.

EDIT: I didn't take the poreclain one. It's 100% cotton. *slaps pricetag on doll and tosses it to a far table before pyro can do anything*

Blaaaast! I'm so glad the mandrakes were effective! There's been some strange cross-breeding going on downstairs & it makes me wonder exactly what potion ingredients from the "private stash" will do to a person... Anyway, you seem relatively normal,... er, I mean that in the best possible sense...

Pig - Funny. No one has requested any of your meatballs? And they sounded so tasty.

Ahhh, school... 5 more years 'til I get to fully enjoy it's benefits... (long night at my house). At least I don't have to go anymore.

(Sees gold bed-pan...) Hey! I have one just like that! Istari gave them to the whole team! Wait a minute... this one has “Ticker” engraved on the bottom. 160 Galleons! No way!... (Bites nails down to the quick...) OK, I'll take it! Personalized & everything - this sale is the BEST!

Hmmmm... a Draco doll. Maybe I can enchant it to polish my bed-pan...


Viola Intonada - Sep 3, 2004 12:51 pm (#1962 of 2965)

No! Ticker, please don't buy the Draco doll. I want to buy it to use as a voodoo doll. First I will transfigure it into a ferret and send it bouncing along, just like Moody did to the real Draco. Since Draco is here looking around, we could see if the voodoo really works.

But Pyro is a ghost right? She can do all kinds of cool stuff, like walk through walls and find the staff's bedrooms. Or the kitchens! Or the secret inside swimming pool we are rumoured to have.


Kasse - Sep 3, 2004 6:13 pm (#1965 of 2965)

and you can throw things through her *grabs a bed pan and throws it through Pyro*


Liz Mann - Sep 3, 2004 6:57 pm (#1966 of 2965)

Yes, it's cool for a while, but a ghost's fate is worse than death, really. Seeing everyone they care about grow old and die and then going on for the rest of eternity without them.

I wonder what would happen to the ghosts if the world blew up.


Ticker - Sep 3, 2004 8:15 pm (#1967 of 2965)

Whoa, deep thought Liz. I was just thinking that pyro being a ghost kinda takes the fun right out of Keep-Away. Well,... somehow I don't think JKR is going to explain that issue, we might as well figure it out for her...

Let's see... they could become astronauts, they could pop into a different dimension, they could go wherever the rest of the souls go, or they could just dissapear into very thin air. Hmmm... I never thought about it before.


Emily - Sep 4, 2004 12:30 am (#1968 of 2965)

BTW- is the offer for meatballs still good? I'm kind of hungry and that sounds good!

Hey, does anyone have some Pepper-Up Potion handy? I've got a nasty cold. *sad*

**sees Draco doll** Omly 10,000 Galleons? What a steal! Speaking of stealing, I'll steal everyone else's ideas by enchanting it to do my chores, and then seeing if voodoo works (by turning it into a ferret).

*hands over money and runs back into room with mew possession*

And, best yet, it was Draco's dad's money that payed for it- noone tell Kip, I think I'm just a bit over the linit.

Here you go, Emily *passes her a tray of meatballs* And this time, I was able to find a whole botle of Cayenne pepper, instead of just half a bottle! With these, who will need Pepper-Up potion? Oh, and don't mind the pickling spices, that's what gives the meatballs their extra crunch.

Hey Fawkes, you could always play backup for something. Acceber's our backup Keeper but all the other positions are free.


Pinky - Sep 6, 2004 4:16 pm (#1973 of 2965)

**NEWS FLASH** Folks, I just heard that during the frenzy of the yard sale, a price tag got slapped onto St. Mungo's itself.... and Aberforth bought it. There's a herd of goats in the foyer. I've already checked it out, and got a cute white and brown goat with long curly horns. Ticker, would Aria like a new playmate?


B]Ticker[/B] - Sep 6, 2004 4:22 pm (#1974 of 2965)

As long as the horns are curly that shouldn't be a problem. Hmmmmm, the goat business must be fairly lucrative. Who knew?


Liz Mann - Sep 6, 2004 5:47 pm (#1975 of 2965)

Oh no, guys, I've just heard that Alberforth is going to be turning this place into a goat farm! Which means that it won't be a hospital anymore!! Which means all the inmates have to LEAVE!!!

Quick, somebody do something before he kicks us all out!


Ticker - Sep 6, 2004 6:21 pm (#1976 of 2965)

You mean this isn't a goat farm?!?! My therapist has been feeding me lies.. lies... all lies! I knew I couldn't trust them with their jello and their smiles & their... mmmfmmfmfmmm (gets dragged off in a straight jacket)

Emmmm, did anyone just see a floating Draco doll? No? Ok... me neither *whistles innocently*

Say has anyone seen Pyro of late?


Viola Intonada - Sep 7, 2004 1:25 pm (#1980 of 2965)

Leave St. Mungo's?!?!?!?! NO I won't, you can't make me. I'll tend goats if I have to. I'm going to take this up with the giant squid. He'll know what to do.

*Dives into water, calling for the Giant Squid.*


Viola Intonada - Sep 7, 2004 6:42 pm (#1981 of 2965)

What are we going to do folks? I found the Giant Squid and told him that he has to do something about Alberforth buying St. Mungo's and turning it into a goat farm, but he just waved his tentacles and swam off.

On second thought though, would it be so bad to live on a goat farm? Being that it is Alberforth, maybe we can negotiate all the butterbeer we can drink? As long as I don't have to run around yelling "Grandfather, Grandfather"


Hermionefan(#1) - Sep 7, 2004 9:33 pm (#1982 of 2965)

I don't wanna live on a goat farm. I don't WANNA. *stops foot in a very childish way.* You can't make me, so hmph. HMPH do you hear me? I don't wanna live on a goat farm! It's too goat-y! WAAAHHHH!!!

Jeez, I leave you guys alone for a while and you sell the hospital? How could you! Maybe we could let Aberforth have the "Muggle Interference" wing for a goat farm instead. I hate that place. They never let you talk to the other inmates!

Hey, meatballs! Pig, can I have some of those? I have a head cold too.

Hey, wasn't there supposed to be a Thestral race somewhere in this mess? Everybody who saw Pyro die could tell us who's winning. ;-)


Pigwidgeon - Sep 8, 2004 2:35 am (#1984 of 2965)

(I wish he could have taken the goats with him though )


A-is-for-Amy - Sep 9, 2004 6:05 pm (#1995 of 2965)

I've been running around for the last hour, trying to affix price tags to all of the darn goats, but they just won't hold still! And they keep chewing on the hem of my robes. I've had enough of this, so here's my plan. We're going to conjure a giant salt lick and put it on a giant raft (theres one for sale here somewhere) and then that will lure the goats on. Next, we set it gently adrift in the lake next to Hogwarts, and it becomes their problem. How's that sound?


Viola Intonada - Sep 9, 2004 11:34 pm (#1996 of 2965)

I'm all for it Amy. I'll conjure the giant salt lick while you look for the raft. I think it is a very good idea to get these goats out of here before they eat much more of the walls. If I remember correctly, someone has chocolate frogs hidden behind the wallpaper in her room.


Fawkes Forever - Sep 10, 2004 11:05 am (#1997 of 2965)

Hmmm, *thinks* chocolate frogs behind the wallpaper.... *to goats* Eat up my pretties.. find those choccy frogs for 'ol Fawkesy... Ahem... I mean... good idea Amy *shifty Lockhart eyes*


A-is-for-Amy - Sep 10, 2004 2:17 pm (#1998 of 2965)

Hey now! The Chocolate Frogs (as I believe I stated before) are strictly off limits! That means that the wallpaper in my room must go unmolested by goats or anyone else. Ah! Here's the raft! Viola, should be make a little fence around the edges of it to keep the goats from drowning, or just wait and see if they can swim?

St. Mungo’s Lexicon Ward for the Incurably Insane

Patient Name: wolfgrl

Date Admitted: 9/10/2004

Diagnosis: wolfgrl believes she is a werewolf. Actually she is a metamorphmagus. She is licensed wolf handler, and has been working with common wolves for years. Wolfgrl has been found on numerous occasions howling with the wolves at her place of employment. Though never bit by a wolf, or a werewolf, wolfgrl believes it was a wolf puppy named Kailani (see attached picture) chewing on her hand (like puppies do) that turned her into a werewolf.

Treatment: wolfgrl has been committed into the “muggleborns we didn’t find in time ward”, until she can be fully and properly trained as a witch.

Room Assignment: Den 928. Located under the 3’x3’ closet at the end of the “re-reads books too many times” ward. A hole is to be made in the floor of the closet and wolfgrl’s den will be underneath. The den is to be 18’x18’ and have real grass carpet.

Welcome Wolfgrl! Congrats on the 2000 post. It sends chills up my spine that I am post 2001 on 9/11. *shivers*

Amy, skip the fence, the goats would probably jump over it anyway. I hope they can swim.

Oh no, Wolf, goats. Goats run for your lives, quick. Run! Run! Run!


A-is-for-Amy - Sep 11, 2004 4:03 pm (#2002 of 2965)

wolfgrl - the reason they won't let you have a calender is because they are useless here! Days or weeks may pass in the blink of an eye here, and then suddenly, there are three hour quidditch games that actually take days to complete! It's all subjective. The best thing to do around here is just hang on and enjoy the ride!


PyroGrl - Sep 11, 2004 9:12 pm (#2003 of 2965)

Too true, Amy. Too true. **floats around aimlessly** Oh, I LOVE being a ghost!!!

Acceber - Sep 11, 2004 11:53 pm (#2005 of 2965)

Welcome Wolfgrl!

Leila, I hate Greek salad. And chimaeras *hides behind table with yard sale givings-away on it*

And-er-guys, I was looking in one of those supply closets where they keep spare jello on the first floor near the elevator, you know where I mean? Yeah. Well...the jello's gone from there. And some goat who told me his name was Aberforth had green stuff around his mouth. We need our jello back, so HELP ME!


Emily - Sep 12, 2004 5:30 pm (#2006 of 2965)

I dunno what you're so upset about, Acceber. If there's no jello in the hospital, then the staff can't force us to have it.


Ticker - Sep 12, 2004 8:27 pm (#2007 of 2965)

Welcome new inmates. Please take this opportunity to do whatever you want (not that you don't get to do that most of the time here anyway...) since the jello has been graciously disposed for us by Aberforth. He'll be peeing green for a week or so with that much jello powder in his system. On the other hand, he won't wake up for at least a month.

Oh! SB, I recommend getting all the use out of that wand that you can before it changes back into a rubber chicken. We've been tweaking a few of the Weasley products, but they're no substitute for our confiscated wands. Now WHY the staff doesn't let us keep them is beyond me, but, you know...


Leila 2X4B - Sep 12, 2004 9:35 pm (#2008 of 2965)

Nobody will get my wand, I keep it well hidden. By the by, does everyone love this very long wand-shapped earrings?


Viola Intonada - Sep 13, 2004 8:40 pm (#2009 of 2965)

Nice earrings Sleeping Beauty. Since the staff won't let us have wands, it is customary to transfigure your wand in order to disguise it. Musical instruments are a popular item to transfigure your wand into. Then you can join our little music group!

Wolfgrl, I will let you have m calender. Sorry, it doesn't have the phases of the moon marked.

(While watching my daughter's soccer game yesterday, I saw a butterfly flit across the field. It was really hard, but I resisted the temptation to chase it.)


Hermionefan(#1) - Sep 13, 2004 9:56 pm (#2010 of 2965)

This jello thing is confusing me. Some people act like its bad and evil, and other people say its good and they want more and all that. So is jello good or bad???

*Re-transfigures wand into pink violin bow* I know it looks weird and unprofessional but I can't get it confused with Viola's now can I?


Pinky - Sep 13, 2004 11:58 pm (#2011 of 2965)

The jello is meant to be confusing. Green jello is most definitely bad. Other kinds of jello have various degrees of "badness." Basically, the staff has been known to put our medicine into jello in an attempt to get us to take it. Of course, we're wise to that, although sometimes we're not always sure who's staff and who's not. *thinks Sleeping Beauty might be an undercover staff person because of all the wand waving*

Oh, thank you, thank you, Viola Intonada. It is ok that it doesn't have the phases of the moon on it, I am sure I can figure it out after the next full moon and then be able to mark the rest of them on the calander.

I got new picture, that's me and my friend Deneb (she is the one wearing white, a regular wolf, not a werewolf.) It was kinda weird, this owl brought it to me along with this stick thing. Not shure what the stick is for though.

Thanks again Viola.


Leila 2X4B - Sep 14, 2004 1:12 am (#2013 of 2965)

Just because I am too clever or crazy to have mine taken away, doesn't mean I work here. They confiscated my authentic fake Weasley Wand. I got it for free because the spell didn't work and it remained looking like a wand.

Erm, I think it best if we avoid any sort of goo we find on the floor. Unless it's chocolate. By all means eat any chocolate.


Viola Intonada - Sep 14, 2004 6:09 pm (#2016 of 2965)

Hermionefan, I want to compliment you on our wand transfiguration. Excellent choice.

So how much money did we make at the yard sale? Will we have enough to install a swimming pool, or perhaps a nice little field trip? I know we just finished traveling for the bedpan quidditch matches, but I was so busy chasing butterflies...I mean ref'ing that I didn't get much of a chance to sight see.

I would mind spending the money all on chocolate frogs, either.


PyroGrl - Sep 14, 2004 11:13 pm (#2017 of 2965)

Wolfgrl-Hi! I have never seen you before, but welcome anyways!

Grr, Elfcat, you're new and you already have post 2020, and I only have post 50, which isn't as cool.

Ooh I know what we could spend the money on! We could pay the Weasley twins to put spells on the hospital so that people who don't belong in St. Mungo's turn into chickens with horns or something like that when they try to enter! Whatcha think?


Leila 2X4B - Sep 15, 2004 1:04 am (#2022 of 2965)

I would rather spend the proceeds buying some envelopes big enough to hold jinxes for the maker of that ferschmlegging jello. I just sprouted some horns.


Pinky - Sep 15, 2004 2:16 am (#2023 of 2965)

What's wrong with a tail, Sleeping Beauty? The horns are actually kind of cute. Would you like a canary cream? You never know how that might affect the transformation.


A-is-for-Amy - Sep 15, 2004 2:26 am (#2024 of 2965)

I still have my wings from the tainted Snape beverage I drank months ago, though I can no longer breathe fire very well... I just keep them folded up beneath my robes so that my fanged puffskeins won’t gnaw on them. I so have some jello in the padding in my east wall, but it's not lime. I think that it's berry flavored, and is NOT sugar-free. Free to a good home.

Elfcat, you are mistaken. I also assigned you "War and Peace" and I expect you to have it read by tomorrow morning. I will let you have until 3:00pm to turn in a report on three feet of parchment defining the characters and events of the story in relationship to the position of the stars at the time the story was written, in reference to the author's astrological chart.

*Takes Parrot and whacks it on the table*

Although it has beautiful plumage, this appears to be a dead parrot.

Who killed my parrot? I demand answers. It is bleeding demised, arrrr.


Viola Intonada - Sep 20, 2004 2:14 am (#2044 of 2965)

SB, when you find the culprit, you should make 'em walk the plank!

Do we still have our pirate ship? Did it move with us, or was it sunk? It's been so long I don't remember.

*plays some piratish music on her viola*

Did anyone else notice we're coming close to the 3000 post limit on this thread?


Pinky - Sep 20, 2004 3:41 am (#2046 of 2965)

Nahhh, we're only 2/3's of the way there. That should take us about to the weekend.

I think that one of the nurses fed my parrot some Jello. When I asked her what she was doing, she said that she was cheering him up. Apparently he was "Pining for the fjords"! I still don't trust her. It certainly was not pining.

Pining for the fjords? Ohh, those little horses are soo cute! ...but I think you meant a different fjord.

Weekend, eh? Possibly. I will post as often as I can.

**Suddenly starts crying** But anything non-human and non-living can travel unless smuggled!! Ghosts can't come!!! OK, I wanna live again. *goes to grab porcelain Draco dolls* Hurry, resurrect me!!


Ticker - Sep 20, 2004 3:14 pm (#2049 of 2965)

Pintos & Fords? What? I can't seem to hear you properly with this banana in my ear...

OK, so I escape the Barney ward & beg not to be put in the Teletubbies ward, but end up on Sesame Street. Just ask me. I can tell you how to get, how to get to Sesame Street...


dobbyiscool - Sep 20, 2004 8:44 pm (#2050 of 2965)

**starts humming Sesame Street theame, realizes what she is humming and desperately trys to get another song into her brain**

Are we going to take the pirate's ship to the new St. Mungos? Or are we going to try our luck at Apparating?

Oh, definitely the pirate ship, I wanna ride on the pirate ship. Its not often one gets to ride on a pirate ship, and I can see the moon from the pirate ship. Will captain Jack Sparrow be comming back to St. Mungos with us?


Emily - Sep 20, 2004 10:28 pm (#2052 of 2965)

Ooh, I'd like to go on a pirate ship! Who's driving?


Hermionefan(#1) - Sep 21, 2004 12:10 am (#2053 of 2965)

Pirate ship? Pirate day? RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!! Today, R is my favorite letter. All right, let's get on the pirate ship! Wait, where are we going?


PyroGrl - Sep 21, 2004 12:50 am (#2054 of 2965)

Still waiting to be resurrected, whilst contemplating what song to sing for my audition and admiring porcelian Draco dolls.


Fawkes Forever - Sep 21, 2004 7:48 am (#2055 of 2965)

Oo arr me hearties... did I miss 'talk like a pirate day' this year again.... hmph!

So are we moving again.... GROAN! *runs up stairs to pack* If only I could remember that spell Tonks taught us! *flings clothes all over the place & starts throwing stuff into trunk...* Opps thats Liz's quidditch robes... can't pack those... oh & thats Liz's too... oh & those are definitely her snitch socks... hmph.. I wonder if I actually own anything in this room or have I been borrowing Liz's stuff since we moved here... sorry Liz. *Spies pile of books in corner* Oh some of these must be mine... *takes book off top of the pile* Oh Pyro.... looky... I found a book on resurrection spells... Liz... is this yours? *turns book over* Oh theres a name on the back... T.M. Riddle... whoever he is.

Here have a look *throws book to Pyro.... unfortunately it passes right through her* Opps sorry Pyro.... *picks up book & starts flicking through pages.* Well there must be something we can use in here. Wheres Hermione when you need her.... *mutter mutter* still celebrating her birthday no doubt!

Note : Why is it when you're supposed to be packing... you always end up finding a book in your room & start reading instead.

We're going somewhere on a pirate ship? How about ARRRRRRgentina? or ARRRRRuba? Or we could just take a cARRRRRR somewhere.

Okay, I'll stop now.

No need for anyone to pack yet, we still have a little less than a thousand posts before we need to worry.


Ticker - Sep 21, 2004 7:36 pm (#2057 of 2965)

I thought we liked to worry. Oh dear. Perhaps I should just go & lay out all my robes to wear each day until we move. That way I can concern myself with other important matters like... who stole me eye patch. Arrrrrrrr.. if I get me hands on ye, ye'll be walkin' the plank for sure...

No wait, I won't need that for another year... besides the plank has gone back to being a diving board for the magically restored swimming pool...which brings me to my next point:

Last one in has to blow up the rubber duck! Wheeeeeee!!! (SPLASH!)

*jumps in pool I didn't even know we had*



Ow... who took the water out?


A-is-for-Amy - Sep 22, 2004 12:03 am (#2059 of 2965)

I'm in! *Fills pool witha wave of my zakoo* The diamond-encrusted disco ball would look lovely hovering over the water, don't you think?


Hermionefan(#1) - Sep 22, 2004 7:54 pm (#2060 of 2965)

Ooh, definitely! It would look super cool, Amy. Maybe we could place sophisticated little tables everywhere and make it an inmate-only restaurant! We could have pretty centerpieces, and napkins folded like hippogriffs or something! And we could make it look all nice-ish and expensive-looking! And then we could have smashing party where we have a bunch of fun smashing everything up and ruining our hardwork!


Viola Intonada - Sep 23, 2004 12:54 am (#2061 of 2965)

The swimming pool has opened again? Yeah!!!!! *runs to room changes into swim suit, runs back to the pool.* Arrggh, CANNON BALL! * causes big splash that drenches everyone not in the pool*

I'll pack later, it always takes us a long time to pack up anyway. Since we have the pirate ship here anyway, I think it would make a great pool toy if someone would like to cast a spell on it. Then we wouldn't ever have to spend tons of money to go to overcrowded water parks. We can have our own water park right here!


Fawkes Forever - Sep 23, 2004 8:12 am (#2062 of 2965)

Pyro, found a few spells... seem like dark magic to me.... there is one that can only be performed during a full moon, & the person performing the spell must stand in a bucket full of bertie botts, rubbing their head & belly in opposite directions... whilst singing three verses of 'The Rubber Duckie' song. Hmmm, according to the calendar on the wall... the next full moon is on the 28th.... ohhh who wants to help?

There's a pool? Never noticed it before... woohoo. Packing can wait.... runs to pool & dives in.... *SMACK* ahhhh belly flop.... that hurt!


wolfgrl - Sep 23, 2004 3:14 pm (#2063 of 2965)

There is a calendar with the phases of the moon on it??? Where??? The next full moon is on the 28th, oh dear that is next week. They would not let me have a calendar. Viola Intonada was kind enough to let me have her calendar but it does not have the phases on it. I could copy them from the other calendar, which wall is that on?


Acceber - Sep 23, 2004 11:37 pm (#2064 of 2965)

Second wall to the left and straight on 'til morning, wolfgrl.

(I know, I'm obsessed with Peter Pan, we did it at camp, I was backstage, you get the drift.)

We're moving? Yes! I like traveling! No school! *does dance and flies away just like Peter*


Elfcat - Sep 24, 2004 1:20 am (#2065 of 2965)

I can't believe I missed Pirate day! Argh Mateys, but I be still allowed to talk like one, for it be homecomming week at the home of the Pirates, arrrr. (Game tomorrow, everybody cheer for us!)

Moving? ak! I feel like I just got here! Note to whoever builds (or finds) the new St. Mungo's: DO NOT include a muggle interference wing, or I'll keel-haul ya', make you walk the plank, put ya' on the rack...oh the possibilities...


prof sprout - Sep 24, 2004 1:22 am (#2066 of 2965)

Residents, we are not moving just yet. We have about 900 posts until we move again. We can go scouting out sites to find our new home away from the goats. I just hope Pyro would be able to leave, I don't know the rules about ghosts leaving where they died or choose to haunt.


Elfcat - Sep 24, 2004 1:23 am (#2067 of 2965)

Pyro MUST come, she's highly important!


PyroGrl - Sep 24, 2004 2:31 am (#2068 of 2965)

Yes, where would you get another Seeker? Elfcat, you don't know how happy you just made me. Smile


Emily - Sep 25, 2004 1:03 am (#2069 of 2965)

Ahh, you're important! Who else would we make fun of behind their backs? (Just kidding, don't haunt me!)


Ticker - Sep 25, 2004 3:38 am (#2070 of 2965)

pyro, you simply must un-ghostify yourself. You need a body to catch the snitch, have a decent water fight, and not to mention re-arranging your Draco collection periodically. We just can't be without you physically here.

Now, there's a good chance you can get back in your body. If I remember right, it was a bit of a freak accident that separated you in the first place. Your lifeless body is probably just blending in with the others on the Shell-shocked-from-going-back-to-school Ward where you'll find that you are only mostly dead. All you need is a certain chocolate and a little time. I'm just not sure which chocolate...


Sabotage - Sep 25, 2004 10:58 pm (#2071 of 2965)

Viola Intonada - Sep 26, 2004 3:59 am (#2072 of 2965)

Oh! We have to go find Miracle Max. First, we need to gather up some money. Do we have any left from the yard sale? Then we need to find where Miracle Max is. Can we use a kneazle to find him?

Welcome back Sabby!


A-is-for-Amy - Sep 26, 2004 5:03 pm (#2073 of 2965)

I think a thestral might be better for finding him... just don't ask for a holocaust cloak, because Moody bought the last one at the yard sale.


Emily - Sep 26, 2004 8:52 pm (#2074 of 2965)
Edited by Sep 26, 2004 1:52 pm

I don't know about money... can we convince Max that Pyro being our seeker is a noble cause?

EDIT: Or do we just tell him that Pyro will haunt him instead of uys if he doesn't help us?


Hermionefan(#1) - Sep 27, 2004 12:52 am (#2075 of 2965)

I vote for the second one, Emily. (it's been a while since I've used smilies)


Ticker - Sep 27, 2004 4:21 am (#2076 of 2965)

Ah, the holocaust cloak... it fit so nice I said he could keep it.

Sabby! You've been gone a long time, yes! Good to see you & welcome home.

Miracle Max - oh yes! I was looking for Mad Max. Rats. How could I ever get them confused? (What do you mean you're not surprised?)


Leila 2X4B - Sep 27, 2004 4:43 am (#2077 of 2965)

I have returned from a secret mission bearing many a jar of special mystery liquid. I call it ALANDROOL, otherwise known as Rickmanjuice. I am pricing it at a very reasonable 50 galleons a jar. Proceeds go to my favorite charity... the "buy as many chocolate frogs as humanly possible" charity.... Any Takers?


Fawkes Forever - Sep 27, 2004 8:38 am (#2078 of 2965)

Ummm, it's ok SB, I'm not thirsty

I think Miracle Max works for Jello these days.... hmmm, maybe! Anyone got a copy of the Princess Bride... we could watch it & see what Max does... actually, I think we need to find Pyros corporeal form first..... we should form a search party. I'll take the first floor... any volunteers?

Wolf Girl... heres a spare diary with phases of the moon on it for you!


A-is-for-Amy - Sep 27, 2004 1:54 pm (#2079 of 2965)

I think I saw the goats nibbling on Pyro's robes.... maybe we should check the raft that we pushed out into the center of the Hogwarts lake?

I'll pass on the Juice, SB, thanks anyway, and I don't ever want to know how you obtained it, okay? okay?!?!

I'm going back to the pool for a while...


Liz Mann - Sep 27, 2004 6:08 pm (#2080 of 2965)

I have got some serious reading to do. I have no idea what is going on. Thing is my computer is up the wall again. I am on the library computer at the moment. I will come back soon and read more. (I hope! *gulp*)


Viola Intonada - Sep 28, 2004 1:11 am (#2081 of 2965)

Liz, sorry to hear your computer is on the fritz still. I have had to skip on posting several times because the "t" and "y" keys haven't always been working on my computer. It is amazing how many times I actually use those two letters!

Sorry SB, I pass.

I'll look on the second floor for Pyro's body. I'm so excited that we get to go visit Miracle Max. I wonder if we will get to meet Valerie, too? I have the Princess Bride on tape. I also have the book, if that will help. We need Pyro back!!

Tomorrow is Viola's Birthday? I smell a pool party coming on! I'll even break out the crate of fizzing whizbees I've been saving for a special occasion. Now to find a gift.... Do you mind small furry animals, Vi? I can even fit their fangs with tiny corks for you!


Leila 2X4B - Sep 28, 2004 2:37 am (#2086 of 2965)

Oh, so that weird howling noise coming from your room is a birthday party? Whew! Tomorrow, eh? Oh good. Then I have time to run to my room, change into my party gown & wrap your present. Yay! I love other people's birthdays.

Pssssst - hey guys. I saw Pyro's body on the Shell-Shocked-From School Ward. I hope it wasn't the musical audition that put her there. Somebody find Miracle Max & slip him the jello. I mean pay him.

Hey, I'm sensing the need for an Alan Rickman movie marathon. How 'bout we all bring our collections to the birthday party and stay up sighing after the kiddies go to bed? SB, you could probably start mass production on your salve afterwards. (Admits to being guilty of pressing the [Recent] button just to see Gina's avatar.)

Wolfgirl.... it's a full moon tonight... hope you took your potion

Hey guys, can someone fill me in on what's going on at the moment? What have I missed while my stupid, stupid, stupid computer has been giving me grief?


A-is-for-Amy - Sep 28, 2004 3:46 pm (#2090 of 2965)

Happy, happy birthday, from all of us to you! We wish it was our birthday, so we could party too!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, VIOLA!! Look! I transfigured aforementioned little pet to have butterfly wings! Still looking for the corks for it's teeth...


Ticker - Sep 28, 2004 6:05 pm (#2091 of 2965)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! (Makes sure Amy has a good grip on fluttering, furry, fanged pet before handing Viola...) You'll never guess.

It's a Vacation View-O-Matic. It will replay your entire summer vacation for you (had to borrow one of your eyebrow hairs to get the spell right - hope you don't mind). And - it has a special feature so you can play lovely butterfly scenes (complete with soothing viola music) through the parts you're trying to forget.

Don't worry Liz. Nothing happens while you're away. Now that you're back though, we'll have Viola's birthday party & re-connect Pyro with her body. You didn't bump into Miracle Max on your way back did you? Oh, one more thing. Avoid the Lycanthropy Ward tonight.

Happy Birthday Viola. I didn't know it was your birthday so I just ran out to the store. They were a bit closed but I got you some nice bounce-y balls with butterfly's on them so you cam practice. And I got you a nose hair trimmer. You can use it to trim people's nose hair, like this!

*starts grabbing anyone to trim their nose hair*

Hmmm... maybe I'll keep this one for myself...

Wow you are correct Viola and Fawkes *looking at new diary* tonight is a full moon.

You guys are all so sweet to take care of me like this, *wisker pops out of cheek* they wouldn't let me have a calendar when I got here *wisker pops out of other cheek* and now I have a calendar, and a diary with the phases of the moon, *nose starts to elongate* and I now know where the staff calendar with the phases is *ears get pointy and twitch* thanks so much for all of your help, I better get back to my den before.......

Oh, look at the nice doggy. My your big. What big eyes you have, what big teeth you have. Nice doggy. *Pets Wolfgrl on head*

Do we have everthing ready to reunite Pyro's ghost with her body? I found Miracle Max and offered him the jello. He said he would do it.

Hold on guys... are we sure that we want to change Pyro back? Having an invisible Seeker could be good. We'd just have to figure out a way for her to be able to grab the snitch. *sits calmly behind a desk and grabs a rabid kitten* *starts trimming it's nose hair*

When does Quidditch season start? I mean we had Quidditch at this time last year didn't we? Our lives, well mine, revolves around Quidditch. I mean look what I do when I'm not playing! *grabs a rabid puppy and gives it the nose treatment*

Viola, happy birthday! For your present, I have just for you, a special device, its a butterfly-tracking device. Just slip it on your wrist, and it will tell you the exact location of the nearest butterfly. Isn't it great? Well I have to go, I'll have to try and get back to you all later, happy birthday again Viola!

Thank you Hermionefan! As these wonderful butterfly gifts. Maybe I will have butterfly-chasing out of my system before the next quidditch season! (Nah.)

Pyro really must have a body in order to catch the snitch. We must reunite her body with her ghost. Do we have her body? I'm suprised if we haven't found it yet. It should be getting rather smelly. eewww.

Btw, today is my daughter's 9th birthday. (yes, the day after mine, we like to keep things simple in our family. My other daughter was born two days before hubby's b-day)


Liz Mann - Sep 30, 2004 12:15 pm (#2103 of 2965)

Are you sure that's a good thing, Viola? It means you have to spend even more at once.

I agree, Pyro's body and ghost must be reunited. I have a potion that might help, but unfortunately I don't have access to my secret storeroom (i.e. smilie sites) because I'm not on my own computer.

Thanks for the welcomes back.

Hey everyone, how was the full moon? I hope I behaved. You are still looking for Pyro's body? I bet I could find it, I have a real good nose for sniffing things out. What does her body look like? How long has she been separated from it? You know there is this odd smell comming from the kitchen, but I assumed that was the goats.


A-is-for-Amy - Sep 30, 2004 3:27 pm (#2105 of 2965)

Well Viola, I could give your daughter her very own fanged pet for her birthday... does she want butterfly wings on hers as well? I just don't know what nine year old girls are into these days (My son just turned 5 last week).

You were, ummh, perfectly behaved wolfgrl. Really. And we don't have that pesky goat problem anymore, either, so Cheers!

Hey all, on a serious note, I was at Fiction Alley today, and noticed that a certain Pyrogrl had posted her first story there. If you'd like to be supportive and stuff, you could go read it and give some feedback!

Here's a link (I'm pretty sure that it's our Pyro's)


Just a thought!


Acceber - Sep 30, 2004 6:31 pm (#2106 of 2965)

That's really good Pyro. I can't imagine Draco saving Hermy, but I am an R/H 'shipper and I know you're D/H, so it does make sense. I think.

A certain pyrogrl (I think that was the name it was under, it may have been like pyro_grl or something) posted fan art for the show Teen Tiotans on this one website, can't remember where it was now, but I wondered if it was the pyro here even though it wasn't HP-related, hmm...

How are my favorite residents doing?

I wish I could find Poppy, while I was posing as a muggle, I hurt my knee. Not sure what is wrong with it yet, had the X-ray today. Surprised( This might mean I might be on the computer more though. I hate getting stuck in the muggle world.

Hello everyone! I've been hanging out in the "Busted Computer Syndrome ward". But I'm back now! My brother lent me his own computer until mine gets fixed. He's gone away for three weeks. But I don't have my Sims 2 game because the disk is stuck in the drive of my own computer. So I need this forum to cheer me up.

Procrastination is an art. – Emily

Actually, accourding to Mr Micawber in David Copperfield, it's the thief of time. But I'm just as guilty of it as anyone else.

To get there, put on the t-shirt, then the badge. To get back, take off the badge. (green against pink attracts butterflies, BTW)

I detest my internet restrictions, two weeks is too long to be away.

I just returned from a vacation (can you believe I wormed a Pass out of the staff?!?). The first couple days back, the FFF didn't offer me a Post Message box. Apparently I went bonkers bad enough in the waiting area that they let me back in. I'm claiming posting here is therapeutic, although my husband thinks it feeds my addiction. He's as Muggle as they get, but what a sweetie though.

(By the way SB, I was just talking about stars with some friends of mine - about what light spectrum comes from a white dwarf, a red giant... when someone asked what comes out of a red dwarf. I informed them very odd PBS characters. Like, duh.)

I'm up for a party!! Let's have a themed one, they're always more interesting. Any ideas?

My brother came back from holiday and claimed his computer. Something went wrong with it while I had it and he's been having a go at me, saying I did something that he specifically said not to. I don't see how I could have done this particular thing without being in a stupid trance, which is why I'm sure I didn't do it. Must have been the computer. Anyway, now he has to try and get it working again. Which will most likely mean a long delay in him working on mine. I'll be visiting my library a lot from now on.

Had to rant about that. Sorry.

Well, Liz sounds like you have very bad karma with computers. *note to self - don't let Liz borrow my computer* Hubby bought me a new keyboard, so I now have a keyboard that the "y's" and "t's" work consistently. (I had to use hubby's computer for a project, tied it up for about a month, he had to use my computer. Amazing how fed-up he finally got with my old keyboard. )

I'm back!!!!! Yeah, my project is 99.5% done!!! Wahoo!!!!

So I am leaving the "The muggle world has caught up with me ward" and am back in my nice, cozy HP obsessed ward.

I'm up for a party! Let's have a party to resurrect Pyro! It's getting close to Halloween, it's perfect. We will each come up with a resurrection remedy and we will keep trying them until something works. I'm going to the library to see if I can find something on resurrection. We can watch movies with a resurrection theme such as "Hello Again" and we can tell spooky ghost stories.

Ah, I'm so happy to be back.

Ticker, as for eating Miracle Max's Miracle Pill, do you feel extra lively now perchance? If not, the pill might still be around somewhere. I'll help you look through all of the wrappers. *Starts looking through wrappers, hoping to find wome chocolate Ticker might have missed.*

Now I will finally have time to play with all of my cool birthday gifts. Thanks for all of the butterfly stuff folks! *Models pink shirt with a green dot for everyone* You know, with all this practice catching butterflies, I think I'm getting pretty good. Maybe I should think about going out for seeker. Hmm, maybe I shouldn't want Pyro ressurected. *evil grin spreads across face*


Ticker - Oct 19, 2004 12:54 am (#2142 of 2965)

Fortunately I just feel like I have a chocolate hang-over. No extra liveliness for me. Did I just say 'fortunately'? (Falls face first into wrappers & begins to snore...)


Viola Intonada - Oct 19, 2004 9:11 pm (#2143 of 2965)

Alright, Ticker, I believe you didn't eat Miracle Max's chocolate pill that is supposed to be used to revive Pyro. I will keep looking. *Still thinks about becoming seeker, doesn't look very hard for pill, but does look for unwrapped chocolate*


A-is-for-Amy - Oct 19, 2004 9:24 pm (#2144 of 2965)

Chocolate pill from Miricle Max? I think Marie E.'s pink fuzzy, er, beanbag chair ate it. And possibly Marie. I think I definitely need a larger room, my little friends have been getting restless, and someone's stolen all of my chocolate frogs.

Liz Mann - Oct 21, 2004 1:58 pm (#2146 of 2965)

Erm... just thinking guys, how is Pyro going to eat any of these things when she's a ghost? Ghosts can't eat, remember? It'll go into her mouth and out through her toes.


A-is-for-Amy - Oct 21, 2004 4:11 pm (#2147 of 2965)

Well they managed to give Nearly Headless Nick the Mandrake restorative after his encounter with the basilisk, so I figure there must be a way!


Ticker - Oct 21, 2004 6:25 pm (#2148 of 2965)

Not a problem... besides, her body is somewhere under these wrappers anyway. We found it, um, some time ago... but it's remarkably well-preserved. I think it's because she's only mostly dead.


Elfcat - Oct 22, 2004 1:12 am (#2149 of 2965)

Okay, whoever claimed that it was better to post than to be left in the muggle world with your insanity was absolutely right. Every where I look when I'm stuck off the internet I see the forum. There's a commercial on TV with the KBR in it, there's Jello all over the place, there's a kid at my school who looks exactly like Harry, Viola is my teacher,...the list goes on.

Did I mention one of my friends may be spying on us? (assuming my directions to the forum were clear enough this time...)

Resurrection party? Dates! I need dates! I have to earn internet time and need to know when this will be so I don't miss it!


Viola Intonada - Oct 22, 2004 2:32 am (#2150 of 2965)

Dates? We have to come up with dates? How about if we have it when you get sufficient internet time? Btw, Elfcat, you gave me such a nice birthday gift that you only need to write 1 foot of parchment for your next essay.

We probably should have the party reasonably soon. I don't know how much longer Pyro will be "mostly" dead.

Hmm, I like the Halloween idea. But for a music theme I'd go for "Her Name was Lola"

Her name was Lola, she was a showgirl
With yellow feathers in her hair and a dress cut down to there
She would merengue and do the cha-cha
And while she tried to be a star
Tony always tended bar
Across the crowded floor, they worked from 8 til 4
They were young and they had each other
Who could ask for more?

At the copa (CO!) Copacabana (Copacabana)
The hottest spot north of Havana (here)
at the copa (CO!) Copacabana
Music and passion were always in fashion
At the copa.... they fell in love

Ooooh! I like the music theme idea. Let's see... what songs do I know?...

Mary had a little Lamb...?


Humpty Dumpty...?

Dang. I have to get out more.

I know an old lady...? This old man...? Three blind mice...?

No. NO. NO!! I guess I'll just come as London Bridge. Or maybe Aria should. She's always falling down. Uh.. I guess I'll have to think about that some more. Besides, all that's running through my head now is

At the copa (CO!) Copacabana (Copacabana)...

Hey Blast! It's great to see you again. You didn't go "sane" on us for awhile, did you?

Music-themed costume? Hmmm.... I could dress up as Hedwig for "Hedwig's Theme". Nah, too many feathers. Don't worry Ticker, Aria will teach you more songs as she gets older! Well, with Barry Manilow running through Ticker's head, we won't ever have to worry about her getting too sane. hehehehe

I'll have to think about my costume. Hmmm, Ice Castles? Nah, costume would be too cold . . .

“They are coming to take me away, hahah . . . . .” maybe not, we wouldn't even have to dress-up for that one. *wanders down hallway listing song names...*

Hey everyone, I just got an owl telling me to take double the amount of my potion tonight because tomorow is not only a full moon but also a total eclipse of the moon. I wonder what will happen, and why I have to take double potions? Just thought I should warn you all, I may not be the best company tomorow night.

I definitely think we should have the resurrection on halloween. It would be so fitting.

Too bad it's not full moon on Halloween like it was, what was it, like 3 years ago or something? That'd be cool. Wolfgrl, you'd be a werewolf, of course, and then we'd have a ghost AND a werewolf. Maybe we should hire a Muggle, just to make it realllly creepy (what, they have witches on Halloween, why shouldn't we have Muggles?).


A-is-for-Amy - Oct 26, 2004 10:00 pm (#2167 of 2965)

Oh no! If there's and eclipse of the full moon, does that mean a werewolf changes, then turns human again, then goes back to a werewolf? Or is there a brief moment of complete lucidity in the werewolf while the moon is eclipsed? Why am I so worried about this?


Liz Mann - Oct 26, 2004 10:44 pm (#2168 of 2965)

Because wolfgrl might escape from her ward and we'll end up with more than one werewolf in this hospital?

wolfgrl - Oct 27, 2004 1:17 pm (#2171 of 2965)

I don't think anyone needs to worry, I am gessing that they are making me take double potions to take care of things. But I might just barricade myself in my den just in case. Although, it didn't seem to work real well last time, but fortunately we don't have to worry about those goats anymore

Are there goats on other floors? Maybe I can take care of them this time?


A-is-for-Amy - Oct 27, 2004 1:55 pm (#2172 of 2965)

No goats, but my 'pets' have been multiplying again. It's strange, becasue the nice Floo-to-Floo wizard who sold them to me positively assured me that they were all males. Anyway, I've been getting some complaints about them, so if you wanted to stay in my room tonight and er, eat, I mean, meet them, be my guest!


Liz Mann - Oct 27, 2004 5:37 pm (#2173 of 2965)

Just don't come into my ward while you're transformed. I don't want to risk you eating all the Snitches.

Viola Intonada - Oct 28, 2004 1:14 am (#2177 of 2965)

Oooo, an eclipse of a Full Moon tonight. Wolfgrl, did you by chance ever spurn a "Man of the Cloth" and he turn you and your mate into forms that change with the day and night? Is there a male Hawk flying around somewhere? Will you be reunited tonight during the eclipse???? Or maybe I have seen the movie "LadyHawke" a few too many times. (In this case I guess it would be "LaddyHawk" or, hehehe "Wolfgirl".


Istari Jones - Oct 28, 2004 1:32 am (#2178 of 2965)

Hey everyone, they let me out of my den for a half hour. Said that this is the oddest transformation they have ever seen. Check it out. Pointy ears, long Furry Tail, Long Finger Nails, Fangs, but the rest of me is, well, just me. They said I transformed, then untransformed to this state. I have to be back in a half hour, they think I may go full werewolf again when the eclipse is over. It is really odd to me though, I have never seen any of myself transformed.

While I am like this, you know nice and all, does anyone want to paint my nails? I have never had them this long before

Thanks for the offer on the gerbils, but I think they may just make me cough up hairballs. But then again I may get hungry and not care when I transform again, so go ahead and put them in my den


Istari Jones - Oct 28, 2004 4:31 am (#2180 of 2965)

Sorry Wolfgrl, I'm horrible at painting fingernails. My 7 and 9 year old can do a better job than I do. Well, too bad the eclipse wasn't on Halloween, you wouldn't have had to worry about a costume to go trick-or-treating.

Sorry, just had to rant about that somewhere.

Liz, if it's any consolation, and it probably isn't, I'm taking a class on web design, and I can't get my page to work properly either. For me, it's a case of needing to move my tags around a bit. Anyway, I know you can get your site figured out!

Is everyone getting ready for Halloween Party tomorrow? I haven't heard much chatter about getting the party set up. The goats are already decorated with jack o laterns on their horns.


wolfgrl - Oct 30, 2004 10:42 pm (#2189 of 2965)

Goats? We got more Goats? Cool I thought I ate them all.

Pinky - Nov 1, 2004 2:13 am (#2192 of 2965)

Things are a little quiet around here... where did everybody go? Hope no one screams... it's waaay too creepy -- not even ghost Pyro is around.


Istari Jones - Nov 1, 2004 2:36 am (#2193 of 2965)

Where is Pyro, anyway?


PyroGrl[B] Sep 24, 2004 3:50 am (#322 of 872)

I didn't know where else to post this, so I'll just post here. Maybe it can be moved to its appropriate place later. I'm taking a break. I will be on eventually to update my stories and such and will drop by occasionally, but most of the time I will not be on too much. Just some personal stuff. I will be checking my e-mail, so send me one whenever there's a St. Mungo's Quidditch match and I'll play, but other than that...I'll be gone. Toodles for now!

Pyro.....*sound resonates through empty halls*.

I actually think she posted on the "Questions for the Hosts" thread that she'd taken a sabbatical from the Forums, and to only email her if we had a Quidditch game going on here, but maybe I'm mistaken. I'll go look.

EDIT: Yeah, I'm right. Here's the link to her post.


Fawkes Forever - Nov 2, 2004 9:26 am (#2197 of 2965)

Oh well... come back soon Pyro & don't get too sane in the Muggle World.

Right that said.... what are we doing today.... guys.... anyone here? *crickets chirp in background*


Marè- Nov 2, 2004 10:23 am (#2198 of 2965)

I'm still lurking. It's a bit quiet here.

Maybe we can throw a theme party? Or take all the residents and go on a camping trip...


VeronikaG - Nov 2, 2004 6:42 pm (#2199 of 2965)

Hi guys. Boy am I glad to be back. It's crazy out there in the Muggle world. They almost drove me sane!!

I wanna go back to my green room with the wizard space wardrobe closet and a view of the weeds in the garden. Let my cats out and see if Pip is still living in the magic suitcase with kitchen and bathroom.

What has happened lately? I understood that Pyro is missing again. And you have had a party, I can see...


wolfgrl - Nov 2, 2004 8:33 pm (#2200 of 2965)

Hey everyone, the healers have been having a field day with me the last few days. For some reason my were-wolf ears have not disappeared yet. Still got them. ^n^ They think it may have something to do with the eclipse. Anyway they have been trying all kinds of things. They also think it may be my fault and that if I want them to go away they will. I just think they can't figure it out so they are blaming me, something about being a metawolfmagus or something. Not quite sure what they were talking about.

So anyway sorry I missed the Halloween party, they would not let me out. When is our next party? Christmas? Thanksgiving? Could we get Turkeys, I love turkeys. Amy's pets were good, and they did taste of chicken, but nothing beats a turkey.

VeronikaG - Nov 4, 2004 6:59 pm (#2202 of 2965)

YAY! Start up the party! How about some every-flavour muffins? Pip, do you see the paper cups in there? Good.

And where are my disco lights? Paarty!!


Liz Mann - Nov 4, 2004 7:41 pm (#2203 of 2965)

Who has the disco ball?


Hermionefan(#1) - Nov 4, 2004 9:59 pm (#2204 of 2965)

I don't have it. So hi everyone! I've taken to waving at everyone, who knows why. *waves at all residents in turn* Well tell me when the party starts, I'm bored!


Liz Mann - Nov 4, 2004 11:06 pm (#2205 of 2965)

As soon as we find the disco ball. Hmm... I wonder if one of the goats ate it... or Wolfgrl while she was transformed.


Emily - Nov 5, 2004 12:11 am (#2206 of 2965)

I saw the disco ball in the attic, along without rubber duck and the remains of the jello sub.

I can't wait for the party! And can it really be start of season? I want my bedpan back the Healers took it away, said I had no reason to have it. I think they were afraid I'd run away.

A camping trip would be fun too! That's where I'll be over the weekend, so don't expect me back until at least Monday! (Not that I'm in here anywhere near enough anyway...)


Elfcat - Nov 5, 2004 2:59 am (#2207 of 2965)

I almost got here sooner but got sucked into the "what do you mean this monstrously huge biology assignment is due tomorrow?" Ward.

Poor wolfgrl, I hope they find a cure soon. Hey, where'd all these prunes come from? Speaking of songs, try this:

I'm a Menace by Alan Katz (to the tune of Frere Jaques)

I'm a menace, I play tennis, In my house, in my room, Didn't know a racquet could hit a lamp and crack it, I smell doom! in my room!

Life is rocky, I played hockey, while inside, against Clyde. Scored--and broke a window. Now I feel the wind blow, while inside. Gotta hide!

I was naughty, did karate, I showed Ben, in the den. Thanks to all my chopping, we're VCR shopping, once again, for the den.

I'm athletic, it's pathetic, Mom gets sore, more and more. Though it's aggravating, let's both go ice-skating. Kitchen floor, fun galore!

Thought that might give you a laugh.


Sabotage - Nov 5, 2004 3:41 am (#2208 of 2965)

* crosses eyes and screams*

My nose! On no! It's gone all blurry! And large.

*ambles around the random comments ward, still cross-eyed* Hmm... Maybe I shall have to get that spider off the wall. He's a bit peckish today.


Ticker - Nov 5, 2004 3:43 pm (#2209 of 2965)

*Pats pockets..* Hmmm, no disco ball here. I think Marè has it.

Ooooh, Veronica - I'll take a nice katsup-rootbeer muffin please.

What is up with the strobe light? Oh. That's just Sabby.

Elfcat that song is way too funny... do you think we really could ice-skate in the kitchen though? It sounds like great fun.


PyroGrl - Nov 6, 2004 12:46 am (#2210 of 2965)
Edited by Nov 5, 2004 4:54 pm

Pyro has left a map of her whereabouts. She is in a fairly well-hidden ward. One of you knows what ward it is. The map is with that person. Figure out who has it, and you get the map. If you follow the map and find me, you will get a lifetime subscription to The Hogwarts Ex-Press *teehee*, the new school newspaper. And lots of cookies.


Pinky - Nov 6, 2004 1:35 am (#2211 of 2965)

Remains of the jello sub in the attic? That does not sound healthy! It could be mutating!

How can a ghost hide? In between the rafters? In the drywall? What kind of cookies? I'm not looking if they're not homemade.


VeronikaG - Nov 6, 2004 6:25 pm (#2212 of 2965)

I think they are chocolate chip cookies. And maybe peanut too. Yum.

How many katsup-rootbeer muffins can you eat Ticker? I do believe you'll be the only one asking for that flavour...

Oh, I saw the disco ball a while ago. It was being played quidditch with in the big bathroom. Used as a quaffle. Better go get it!

I've got the garden lights by the way. Can any of you make them different colors? My wand is still a toothbrush, and it blows bubbles during transfiguration.


Liz Mann - Nov 6, 2004 10:30 pm (#2213 of 2965)

Can we have some clues as to who has the map? Ooh! This can be a party activity! A Pyro's Body Hunt!

Edited by Nov 6, 2004 5:01 pm

Oh Dear, I hope VeronikaG is correct about the disco ball and I did not eat it or something

What colors would you like the lights to be? How about plaid? I figured out that this stick they gave me was actually a wand. I thought it was just for me to chase, but last time I tossed it for myself, dog biscuits flew out of the end. Happy day for me So if someone tells me how to do it maybe I can change the light colors.

I don't have the map do I? I can never remember things that happen when I change. I didn't eat it did I?

Let me know If I can be of any help.


Sabotage - Nov 7, 2004 3:02 am (#2215 of 2965)

*pops head out of 'random comments are my specialty' ward*

I got my muggle learner’s permit today! Woo Hoo and huzzah! Plus I got to drive the car into the garage!

*pops back into ward*


wolfgrl - Nov 7, 2004 1:43 pm (#2216 of 2965)

I hope the garage is ok, next time try to just park the car in the garage instead of driving it into it. Much less damage that way. 

Do one of the Healers have the map? If they do, they will never give it to us. They think we are too rowdy as it is.


Hermionefan(#1) - Nov 7, 2004 7:15 pm (#2217 of 2965)

Us? Rowdy? Are they crazy?


Liz Mann - Nov 7, 2004 7:25 pm (#2218 of 2965)

Surely they'd give it to us! We're trying to save an inmate’s life.


PyroGrl - Nov 9, 2004 12:42 am (#2219 of 2965)

Right, here's the first clue. Ya'll got your teams??

The map-keeper...

Has entered/won at least one writing contest.

Because this one is so broad, there is a maximum of three guesses.


A-is-for-Amy - Nov 9, 2004 2:57 am (#2220 of 2965)

Well it's not me then, because I've never won on this site. That should narrow it down at least a little. It's a relief, because I thought I might have inadvertently burned it when I burned all of that evidence, er, I mean, rubbish.


Fawkes Forever - Nov 9, 2004 10:59 am (#2221 of 2965)
Edited by Nov 9, 2004 3:05 am

Definitely not me then... my attempts at fan fic are still scribbled on some spare cereal boxes I found in the larder in the St Mungo’s kitchen... which can be a bit scarey, as some characters have sprung to life... must be something in the cardboard of 'Absolute Nuts - a fruit & nut cereal for fruits & nuts'

Is the map a scar like on Dumbledore’s knee? Oh this guessing game is fun isn't it .... Gilderoy is very excited by the whole thing.


Marè- Nov 9, 2004 11:14 am (#2222 of 2965)
Edited by Nov 9, 2004 4:31 am

For some reason, new posts on this forum don't show up for me, so I forget to check here.

*Pats pockets...* Hmmm, no disco ball here. I think Marè has it.

Hmm . . yes, I know where it is, and no, I can't get to it, it's in the attic, it's covered with mutated baby blue jello and on top of that, there is some kind of wolf sitting in front of the door.

*Walks down the stairs very quietly*

let's not make it angry shall we, and don't move too fast, it looks like it can see lots with those four eyes of his...

*Bump*, that was me falling of my chair (and down the stairs) you haven't won, Amy??? Speaking about a surprise...

Okay treasure hunt - - must focus now. If we are looking for Pyro's body, there isn't a way to cheat and follow the smell is there?

PS yeey post 2222

Edit 2: Ellen McAnich/Lenka
Kit / Tommie
Liz Mann
those are my guesses.


Liz Mann - Nov 9, 2004 4:59 pm (#2223 of 2965)

Gasp! I've won writing challenges on here! Is it me? You haven't hidden it in my robe pocket have you?


PyroGrl - Nov 9, 2004 10:50 pm (#2224 of 2965)

Because this one is so broad, there is a maximum of three guesses.

Marè, sorry I didn't clarify enough, I meant three guesses TOTAL. So I'll count the Ellen/Lenka one and pretend I didn't see the other two. *innocent grin*


Emily - Nov 9, 2004 11:48 pm (#2225 of 2965)

You mean three guesses for all of us, put together? That's not fair! Can we retract any previous guesses, hold a meeting, and then submit our official guesses? Will there be more clues if we're wrong? Does anyone have a list of all the winners lying around?


PyroGrl - Nov 9, 2004 11:54 pm (#2226 of 2965)

More clues, of course. Hold a meeting, of course. Retract any previous guesses...only if they've been said before. As I said, because it's so broad...and I didn't want it to be TOO easy. It'd make me feel stupid.


Pinky - Nov 10, 2004 3:41 am (#2227 of 2965)

I think Tommie and Lenka can be retracted. I just tried e-mailing them, and their e-mails don't work. It's not fair to give someone a map if they don't have workable e-mails. Unless *frowns at Pyro's ghost* you have workable e-mails for them? If you do, please e-mail them to me right away! (That is, assuming that ghosties can e-mail....) Of course... both Tommie and Lenka were/are special friends of Pyro's.... so maybe we shouldn't retract them. (Anyone else notice how quick she was to pick Lenka and not Tommie? Mighty suspicious, I think.)


A-is-for-Amy - Nov 10, 2004 3:48 am (#2228 of 2965)

Hey Pinky - I just sent you Lenka's e-mail. Hope it works!


Marè- Nov 10, 2004 8:05 am (#2229 of 2965)

Does anyone have a list of all the winners lying around?

I made one:
Ellen McAnich
Istari Jones
Kit / Tommie
Liz Mann
Cliff Hamaker
Caitlin McCoy
Stellar Hawk
Little Ginny
Uncle brad

This is without the winner of the lost contest 11 (if it is that one, Pyro, I will personally stuff you in a closet and force you to be a ghost forever! )

I didn’t post it before, because if every-one had three guesses it would have been too easy, but now...

And yes Pinky, I choose Lenka and tommie for that reason. But if their e-mails aren't correct, they aren't members anymore (it's against forum policy) so they can't be it. I think her picking lenka (and not telling us if that was a right or wrong pick... kinda suspicious too, ) and not Tommie is a clue, but again wrong e-mail = no member. ( obvious clue to Pyro, if you know that these two might want to visit again, and you can still contact them, tell them to update their e-mails )

Taking out all non- active members, this would be our list:

Istari Jones
Liz Mann
Stellar Hawk
Little Ginny
Uncle brad

*eyes Pinky suspiciously*
What are you doing on top of my list?


Ticker - Nov 10, 2004 5:29 pm (#2230 of 2965)

Runs into the "Afraid of Riddles" Ward. I've had this problem since reading COS...


wolfgrl - Nov 10, 2004 5:45 pm (#2231 of 2965)
Edited by Nov 10, 2004 9:46 am

Oh no, I am sorry Marè, Sammy told me he was coming to visit, but when he didn't show up I presumed he was just mad at me for forgetting his Birthday. He must have gotten lost and ended up at the top of the stairs by the attic. I will go get him and lead him to my den.

OK, done, and I grabbed the disco ball while I was up there. Where should I put it? Above the pool maybe?

As to the map, my vote (not an official vote, just one for the group) would be Liz Mann. Don't have any reason why, that is just my guess


PyroGrl - Nov 10, 2004 11:10 pm (#2232 of 2965)

Well, this may or may not count as a clue: it is NOT the contest 11 winner...because that would be me!! Wink


Pigwidgeon - Nov 11, 2004 4:42 am (#2233 of 2965)

Oh yes, your King Toadum story, which the Gremlins that be munched. Stupid gremlins. That was a great story, too *sigh*

By the by, How did your audition go? Or did you frighten everyone because of your more spectral appearance?


PyroGrl - Nov 11, 2004 5:41 pm (#2234 of 2965)

My audition is in two weeks, I think. We're still working on Guys and Dolls. And our teachers really need to explain this monologue thing to us. I couldn't find one at the library or on the internet. *Sigh*

Righto. Next clue:

This person does NOT have a story posted.

Hopefully it's the last clue, because my birthday is on Tuesday and it would be a perfect birthday present to be resurrected. Smile. Well, I can think of a better one...but that's after you find the map!


A-is-for-Amy - Nov 11, 2004 6:08 pm (#2235 of 2965)

I have a question! If a body is drunk when it dies, and he or she becomes a ghost, will the ghost end up being eternally drunk?

Sorry - I know this question is out of nowhere, but I wanted to know.


PyroGrl - Nov 11, 2004 6:29 pm (#2236 of 2965)

Well, I have a buddy in the afterlife who's cousin's friend's roommate's sister's boyfriend died like that. They call him Bailey.

Pigwidgeon - Nov 12, 2004 5:21 am (#2238 of 2965)

Righto. Next clue:

This person does NOT have a story posted.

Hmm... according to Marè's list, that narrows it down to four, and two are brand new ... so ....


PyroGrl - Nov 12, 2004 5:35 am (#2239 of 2965)

You're free to take a guess. Smile.

Marè- Nov 15, 2004 8:47 am (#2241 of 2965)

Well we still have to guesses... Which are the four, Pigwidgeon?


kabloink! - Nov 16, 2004 12:24 am (#2242 of 2965)

Hi all! Just figured I'd come and join y'all and have a bit of fun. I have no clue what's going on, tho.....2,000+ posts have me feeling a little dazed...and here I remember when I could catch up on ALL the posts in BOTH forums in less than an hour...


Liz Mann - Nov 16, 2004 4:57 pm (#2243 of 2965)

Pyro is a ghost at the moment and we're trying to find her body so that we can restore her to it. She has left a map to her body with one of the inmates, but we don't know who. All we know so far is that the person has won one of the writing contests at least once, and that apart from the contest they don't have a story posted on the forum.


Pigwidgeon - Nov 16, 2004 5:04 pm (#2244 of 2965)
Edited by Nov 16, 2004 9:11 am

Marè: *dons Sherlock Holmes-style hat and coat*

Here is your list of contest winners who are still active. Another clue was that they do NOT have a story posted up yet:

Pinky - no story

Istari Jones - no story

Liz Mann - many stories

Stellar Hawk - co-author of a posted story

Little Ginny - no story

Pigwidgeon - stories

Uncle brad - no stories.

So this narrows down the list of people with the map to Pinky, Istari, Uncle Brad and Little Ginny.

Now, I'm going out on a bit of a limb (and closing my eyes because I have a fear of heights), but my guess is that the person who has the map is either a resident or staff member of St. Mungo's. Pinky and Istari are frequently seen in this grand hall of insanity. A (very) cursory check of November and much of October showed me that Brad and Little Ginny aren't frequent visitors (must find way to lure them in here ... hee hee hee). So, unless I am missing something, this narrows down the list to Pinky and Istari.

Anyone have a knut?

* ice-skates over from the solitary confinement ward* Hi all! For a second I was afraid Pyro might have slipped the map under the door to solitary to me, and that would have been bad because I can't get out enough to give it to anyone. Don't you hate it when you know you've been saving up things to tell the other inmates for a week and then when you finally break out of your ward you can't remember any of it? OH NO!!! *ice skating frantically away from orderlies* Bye All!


Pinky - Nov 17, 2004 2:27 am (#2248 of 2965)

SEE! I knew Pinky was suspicious!

*throws two suspicious looks in her direction...*

Nice hat, by the way, Pig. (Okay using Pig as a way of addressing persons just sounds so wrong...)

So who votes for Pïnky as our second guess?


Liz Mann - Nov 17, 2004 4:35 pm (#2250 of 2965)

Well, Pinky, if you've been so busy you might not have noticed Pyro slip the map in your pocket or under your ward door.

Pinky, I have some strange purple hairs on my socks. I'd be willing to be he/it hasn't gotten too far yet, if you're up for a search. Tho I guess that might need to wait til after the Great Map Search.


Ticker - Nov 19, 2004 1:27 am (#2257 of 2965)

Woah... Denise! Your hair is at least a foot longer & those spider webs blowing off your shoulder are coated in some pretty thick dust. Are you OK? Wow! It's so good to see you again!

It's generally known that being in a jello-induced state can be hazardous to yourself & others when you have a magical object on your person. You appear to have both buttocks, so I guess your, er, pencil isn't in your pocket.

Oy! Pinky - cough up the map! Or cough up Istari if you can...


Marie E. - Nov 20, 2004 2:33 am (#2258 of 2965)

The jello can be quite helpful if you're looking for good night's sleep, however. Sort of like a good dose of Nyquil.

Something's been coughed up, I think. Ewwwww!


Denise S. - Nov 20, 2004 11:41 am (#2259 of 2965)

Our fellow inmate Pyro has been turned into a ghost. We need to find her body so that we can restore her to it. A map to her body has been planted on Pinky who is currently hiding in a mouse hole. We have to get the map somehow.

Welcome to St Mungo's!

Oh, and Pinky, I believe Accio can reach you wherever you are.

Wow! I’ve made to St. Mungo’s! I’d like to say that I’ve read all of posts, but I keep getting distracted by all the pretty colors. I really like this pretty new robe they gave. Pretty buckles. It does make typing a little hard. Anybody got a program for typing with your nose? Could one of you undo these pretty buckles? Pretty please? I promise I won’t run away. Like I did the last twelve times. What does hopeless case mean?

All I asked was if I was an animagi and my animagus was me. So when I change into an animagus, I become me again. Simple ain’t it? Poof, I’m me! Poof, I’m me again. He he he he he.

Here comes that Healer again. Beddy time. Night, night. Purddy colors . . . . .

Happy Birthdays! Or is it Happys birthday - I can never get it straight...

Pyro, I got you tickets for a three hour cruise on the Black Pearl (you can go as a ghost if needed, but I think you'll enjoy your trip more in your body).

Sabby, this is a bit last minute, but I hope you like popcorn. *Hands Sabby a strange box with 3 funnels & a crank...* It's a Snargle catcher, but they said at the shop that it makes excellent popcorn. If you actually catch a Snargle, call the number on the bottom as the manufacturers have never seen one before.

Welcome to our new admissions! Feeling disoriented? Not a problem. Avoid the jello & by all means, do NOT eat the Calamari.

Amy, don't you have something in your room that could get Pinky out of the wall? Out in 1 piece, I mean...

Potions Mistress - Nov 22, 2004 12:26 am (#2275 of 2965)

I'm on the closed ward with Lockhart. He keeps offering me joined up writing. I know that mine is better, but it's hard to do with this odd jacket. If I can get out this jacket, I'll try to sneak out to catch Pinky. Shh! Don't tell anyone! *Looks around furtively* Okay...Here I go...


Tessa's Dad - Nov 22, 2004 2:26 am (#2276 of 2965)


They won’t tell what ward I’m in. They just mumble something about hopeless and leave me all alone. There are some other people in this ward, but most of them don’t make a lot of sense. This one lady keeps trying to give me gum wrappers. She never gives me any gum, just the wrappers. Wrappers don’t taste very good.

I did see a very pretty pink mouse wander by my bed a little while ago. It seemed a little strange, most of my mice are blue! I also saw a big rat with a silver colored paw! It was being chased by a really big snake.

A lady just walked by wearing a jacket just like mine. She kept whispering something like, "Here Pinky, Pinky!"

Got to go now. Here comes that nice Witch with my potions.


Pinky - Nov 22, 2004 2:30 am (#2277 of 2965)

Don't got no map. Don't know what you folks are talking about. *looks down at map in paws* Oh... you mean this map? Snargle catchers don't work on lab mice, do they? I might come out if someone offers me my favorite treat....

I'm out of that weird jacket, now I'm going to help Tessa's dad with his. I'm trying to get Pinky, so I'm thinking two heads are better than one. I'll keep you posted...oh, I just managed to gnaw my way through the straps on Tessa's dad's jacket. Gotta jet, I think an orderly just spotted me. Ooh, was that the mouse?

PS: On a completely different note, can someone tell me the most direct way to this thread...I know that I'm going about it in the most convoluted way! Back evil orderly, back!


kabloink! - Nov 22, 2004 3:50 am (#2279 of 2965)


*shoulders sag and face goes back to normal, finally giving up on becoming a cat*

My inner kitty just doesn't want to come out today, I suppose. Hmm what might your favorite treat be, Pinky? I have some lovely green jello here, if you'd like it!


Potions Mistress - Nov 22, 2004 4:03 am (#2280 of 2965)

Mmmm...green jello...with pears in it? That's the best. How could Pinky turn that down?


Pigwidgeon - Nov 22, 2004 4:55 am (#2281 of 2965)

Or how about chocolate cheese?


Pinky - Nov 22, 2004 7:24 am (#2282 of 2965)

Nope, nope, and nope. *squeeks shrilly with delight* The map is mine! The map is mine! He who guesses my favorite treat is the only one worthy of winning the map.

Remember folks, only Liz can lead us to the correct ward. She's the one with the map!


Potions Mistress - Nov 22, 2004 5:34 pm (#2289 of 2965)

Too late, Denise S. I ate the Jello. Wow, that's some strong stuff. But, I think I felt the colors that Tessa's dad was so happy about--red feels soft...

BTW Kim, is that you in your beauuuutiful avatar?


prof sprout - Nov 22, 2004 6:11 pm (#2291 of 2965)

Welcome new residents. I am one of the volunteer helpers here. I am pretty safe, another volunteer is Pomfrey. We are both pretty safe, but Poppy did let loose those Ted E Bears, that ran amuck last year. Many residents are in various wards, and many are "hopeless" cases, meaning they will be here FOREVER, FOREVER. (Remembers the movie Sandlot, forever, forever) There are a couple popular wards, like "I'm in love with a HP character" ward and last year there was a popular ward of "Leave me alone, I'm reading OTP" ward. There is a another popular ward of "Can't wait for HBP" ward. Unfortunately, there are times I have to dole out punishments, and as the release of HBP comes people misbehave more. There is a ward called "I can't read my book because my annoying sibling won't leave me alone" You do not want to be placed there. Just to warn you. Good luck and welcome.

Prof. Sprout! So good to hear from you. I had almost forgotten that we were supervised...


Pinky - Nov 22, 2004 10:04 pm (#2295 of 2965)

You're a pretty cute canary, Liz. It seems like the semi-permanent canary cream I had before had some rather extreme things going on with it. I doubt the one you ate would have that effect... course... there's really no telling just what any canary cream will do to you!


prof sprout - Nov 22, 2004 11:27 pm (#2296 of 2965)

Yup, I've been here all along, but you guys have been behaving well so I have not needed to interject. I'm sure when there is about a month or so before the book release I'll need to have a closer watch. (Well actually depending on when it is, I'm getting married in June so if it is around then, I may be really stressed to even worry if there is a food fight.

I found a nest up in a tree in the grounds that had some worms in. Would they count as food? Seem okay to me right now.

Good to see ya's! The wards are swelling with inmates! Hooray! Er, I guess I'm supposed to be sorry, but you all are such wonderful company (fangs, fur, wings, joined-up writing, extra limbs & all...)!

Ah Gina... she of the remarkable sense of timing... The last Bedpan Quidditch season did (yes, finally) end some time ago. The next season is due to begin again soon if the rumors are true. Am I to assume you were thinking of retiring Severus' pom-poms?

PM- Happy Thanksgiving to you as well! Here at St. Mungo's we celebrate everything (though Thanksgiving is an USA holiday) so dig on in to the Holiday Feast! The house elves have once again outdone themselves. One does hope however that the happy, sedated feeling afterwards is due to the turkey rather than the jello...


Gina R Snape - Nov 25, 2004 8:13 pm (#2323 of 2965)

Well yes. To be honest, I left because I got sick of all the Quidditch. Pyro is a ghost...now that is interesting. Are we trying to revive her? Or planning a Death Day party?

Potions Mistress, Thanksgiving is not celebrated over her in England but I can always go for some turkey.

GINA! You're back! *lands on Gina's shoulder* No, no, no, don't try and wave me away, it's me, Liz. I'm a canary at the moment but I'm moulting several feathers a second so I should be back with the map soon. And yes, we are trying to revive Pyro. I may be clinically insane but I don't think I'd relish the smell of all the rotting food at a Death Day party.

You left because of the Quidditch? Well, admittedly it did go on for rather a long time because we kept travelling from place to place and just the journeys took aaaaaages. Especially with having to find a new vehicle all the time... there was the giant peach, the jello sub, the flying rubber duck... Maybe this time all the other teams can come to us?


kabloink! - Nov 25, 2004 11:17 pm (#2325 of 2965)

We are trying to retrieve the map from Liz, who is now a canary...once we get the map, we will be able to find Pyro's body and return her to it. Hopefully after being plumped up this weekend, Liz will return to her proper state.

I'm with you dear, I'm really liking this hunt for a map, although at the moment, we're not hunting much.
*eyes Liz*

We could change that, of course, didn't some-one have a little thing to catch butterflies? Guess we can catch a canary with that, maybe if we gave Liz some of your "new" Snape drinks something interesting might happen.

And yes, I got tired of the quidditch too, didn't we burn down the stadium? Maybe we can take a break for this season due to "unability to practice?"


Ticker - Nov 26, 2004 4:57 pm (#2329 of 2965)

The stadium got burned down before last season in a duel pyro hosted. I think a break is a splendid idea Marè. It's definitely going to take a while to get my bedpan sores to heal.


A-is-for-Amy - Nov 26, 2004 5:21 pm (#2330 of 2965)

Yes, a break would be good - maybe just a friendly scrimmage on our home turf once in a while? I went to find my PomPons, and there's something nesting in there. Anyone brave enough to venture into my closet and find out what?

Gina! *looks scandalized* Liz wouldn't do that, would sh... *hands Gina a tiny diaper* Er... you think this will help?

*Takes a deep breath* I'll see what's hiding in your pompoms Amy. *Tentatively picks on up* AAAAAUUUUUGGGGGHHHHH! *faints*

It's not a spider, is it? I hate spiders!

We're not doing Quidditch this year?!? But, but, I was gonna try out, and I like all the camping out and all that stuff. Hey, what happened to our orchestra?

I'm in California at the moment, I may not get to visit very frequently, the Muggles want me to take all these family photos, and they don't even move! Would you believe it? *Shakes head in disbelief*

We will do Quidditch, Hermy, just not yet.

Gina - that wasn't me!

What is everyone making a fuss of with Amy's pompoms? *takes a look* UGH! *falls out of the air and crash lands on the floor unconscious*

*ten minutes later*

Urrrrrgh... Where am I? What hap-- Oh I remember now! OMG, Amy, I don't know what that thing in the pompoms is, but it's awful!

Hey! My feathers have all disappeared and I'm back to normal! *reaches in pocket and takes out the map* Hurrah! Now we can find Pyro's body! Good thing too, because I don't want to know what happens when you combine a semi-permanent canary cream with Snape drinks, thank you very much, Marè.


Ticker - Nov 27, 2004 7:43 pm (#2337 of 2965)

Wahoo! I'm really excited about this hunt. I have my Day Pass all ready, or at least I think it is... The people down the hall who can read joined-up writing said it looked very important. If it doesn't work, I'll use it to poke at your pom-poms Amy.


PyroGrl - Nov 27, 2004 7:46 pm (#2338 of 2965)

Welcome back Gina and Caitlin! Great to...er...see you again...*is about to be moved into the 'He HUGGED me!!' ward which is right beside the 'He pointed right at me! YAY!' ward*

Yay! Liz is back to normal, or as normal as any of us ever are . Onward with the hunt! *dons detective's cape and hat and grabs magnifying glass and notepad*

PS Cute new picture of Aria, Ticker .


Pinky - Nov 27, 2004 8:05 pm (#2340 of 2965)

Ticker - she is NOT 1 year old already, is she? *sniff* I remember decorating our room here at St. Mungo's for her. Now we need to get all new toys! Would she like this spotted rocking hippogriff to ride?


Liz Mann - Nov 27, 2004 8:14 pm (#2341 of 2965)

When do you think she'd be old enough for her first toy broomstick?


A-is-for-Amy - Nov 27, 2004 9:00 pm (#2342 of 2965)

Does anyone have a long stick? That - whateveritis - in my pompons is snoring and keeping me awake. Just give it a little poke for me, would you? *Uses kazoo to cast a shield charm*


Liz Mann - Nov 28, 2004 12:10 am (#2343 of 2965)

WOAH! I just did what you asked, and it sent a jet of fire at me! I wonder if Hagrid bred a Skrewt with something else.

Hey guys, can I get some advice from my fellow inmates? What do you do when you read a fan fic with absolutely terrible grammar and punctuation (I mean so bad that it detracts from the enjoyment of the story and doesn't always make sense), and then find out that the story has been beta read and the site in general has won awards for site presentation and good writing. Do you tell the person about the punctuation and grammar? Do you ignore it? If the former, how do you do it without sounding like Simon Cowell?


A-is-for-Amy - Nov 28, 2004 2:59 am (#2345 of 2965)

I have found that on some sites, even the ones that are supposed to be really strict about such things, allow their own beta readers to post without actually having their stories go through the normal stringent processes. It could be that someone signed up to be a beta for the site you were on, just so they wouldn't have to be checked over. Either way, I don't think there's anything wrong with pointing out their errors.

You could simply say, "I think that I might have enjoyed your story more if it weren't for the numerous spelling and grammar errors throughout. You may want to choose a beta reader that specializes in those areas in the future, as I think that you have a great story to tell, and the errors distract from that."

Or something similar to that. That's just me, but I appreciate constructive criticism so that I know what to look out for in my writing. As long as you're nice about it, and point out both good and bad things in the story, the author shouldn't be offended.

*muses at the scene over the pom poms*

I knew there was a reason I never wanted to become a cheerleader.


Liz Mann - Nov 28, 2004 8:04 pm (#2347 of 2965)

Amy - the person apparently belongs to a beta reading group.


A-is-for-Amy - Nov 28, 2004 8:48 pm (#2348 of 2965)

That's a bit frightening, isn't it? Nothing like the blind leading the blind!


PyroGrl - Nov 29, 2004 12:54 am (#2349 of 2965)

I kind of like Simon Cowell. HE'S my American Idol! (Shame I'm Canadian, eh? Teehee...get the pun? 'Eh?' **had too many sugar cubes**)


Ticker - Nov 29, 2004 4:22 am (#2350 of 2965)

Thanks Acceber. The picture was taken at her birthday party. She was waaaaayyy overwhelmed with wrapping & cake & the fuss. I think you can see it in her eyes... or maybe it's just from the hereditary insanity... lucky kid.

Pinky, the hippogriff rocker is lovely! It's so soft & the feathers don't even come off when you hang on to them. Crazy that she's a year old. I didn't get any older, did I?

Liz, the broomstick would be great fun! I think she'll need a seat & cross-bar though. Nothing the Toddler Servicing Kit can't handle. I agree with Amy's grammar advice. Couldn't have said it any better.
