      Do you think Viktor Krum would’ve learned more English somehow between 1994 and 1999?

      We know Ron had a very serious inferiority complex but do you think any of the older Weasley boys had one?

      claiming a wild card - critique section for slytherin! here++ (November 2017 Bulletin)
    • MuggleMaybe
      Ahh, hi Kristin! Thank you so much for your post! ❤️  1. Yeah, I already had everything planned before I changed it to OF, but I was hanging out with Julie one day and I told her about it and she said, "Renee that story has absolutely nothing to do with magic or Harry Potter." And she encouraged me to make it OF, and really she was right! haha 2. I haven't really thought about this since his parents stopped being Ron and Hermione, so thank you for asking it! I Think his mom is ambitious, and a politician, and she wants him to show more ambition, especially because he performed extremely well academically in school and she didn't see this decision coming at all. And his dad grew up poor and worries he won't be financially secure as an artist. But they want to be supportive, they're just not always good at it. 3. Good. Be curious =P  4. I know right? I absolutely adore Adela and I haven't even written a chapter of this haha 5. Yeah, I think it will switch between them for each chapter.  Thank you so much for these questions! Your excitement makes a big difference

      HPFT Forums -- HPFT staff report that throughout this month-long newspaper assignment, there will be four wild cards up for grabs. The wild cards are associated with special extra sections of your newspapers. There will be four categories of extra sections. If a house has found the wild card associated with a section, they can claim that extra section. Only one house can claim each section--once it is claimed, it cannot be claimed by any other house. An extra section can be claimed at any point after its associated wild card is found, provided no other house has yet claimed it. Further details on the requirements of the extra sections are not yet available, but staff expect an announcement to be made in the coming weeks. The extra section associated with the wild card up for grabs in Scavenger Hunt #1 (the Letters to the Editor hunt) is "Critique Section." Please reply to this topic to claim extra sections. Wild Card #1 (Critique Section) - claimed by Slytherin Wild Card #2 (Still-A-Mystery Section) - Wild Card #3 (Still-A-Mystery Section) - Wild Card #4 (Still-A-Mystery Section) -

      Any paper worth its ink contains more than merely the news of the day. It also delivers readers powerful opinions on the issues of the day. As the architects of your paper, it will be up to you to separate the wheat from the chaff, selecting for publication only the most intriguing and timely issues. That takes a hunt. Five (5) prompts from each of the four (4) eras have been embedded across the HPFT Archives and Forums, representing the very issues on which the HPFT Staff will expect you to focus when the time comes to publish your Letters to the Editor. Search carefully for all the prompts, keeping in mind that next week, you will be required to write two (2) Letters to the Editor chosen from just two (2) of the prompts you will find this week. More information regarding expectations for the writing portion of this important component of your paper will be provided at the beginning of Week 2 (on July 27th or 28th). But don't stop your search prematurely. There's a lot of ground to cover and sometimes the most unique - and potentially most valuable - discoveries are timeless treasures that stretch beyond mere prompts. You'll find at least one (1) such precious piece this week if you can find the right place to look. You have until the end of Week 1 (July 27th) to locate all the prompts - even those that do not apply to your specific era. The more of the search you complete, the more your paper will be worth. But don't get scooped! When it comes to the press, those who finish fastest reap extra rewards. Here is an example of what you're looking for (scroll to the bottom): http://archive.hpfanfictalk.com/viewstory.php?sid=520&chapter=2
