      Announcing... Teams Gorgon and Griffin!   12/14/2017

      Your third and final snowball fight is just just over a day away, and your special team common rooms are now open in the Courtyard! For this fight, Hufflepuff and Slytherin will form team Gorgon, while Gryffindor and Ravenclaw will form team Griffin! The official topics in your common rooms will unlock tomorrow, but you're very welcome to use the space now to decide on a strategy, ask the staff for clarification on any rules, and just get to know each other if you don't already.

  1. Welcome to the HPFT bulletin, where you can find all of our major monthly announcements and information about upcoming events! We're very sad to announce that @Aphoride will be stepping down from her position as Auror on December 1. Laura was one of the first people to join our validator team, and she's done an amazing job in that capacity over the past year (as well as in her role as prefect before that). We'll miss her a lot, and her help was invaluable as we got the next event ready. We hope to continue to see her around the forums, even if RL gets busy. Thank you so much, Laura! Our three current archive staffers feel like they have the queue under control, so we'll be holding off on replacing Laura for the moment. Hufflepuff: 787 Slytherin: 740 Ravenclaw: 528 Gryffindor: 379 This month, we're all going to be taking a walk in a winter wonderland. We've teased you a bit about this, and now it's time to lay (most of ) our cards on the table. Last year, things got pretty hectic over the last few months of the house cup, which some of you mentioned in your responses to our end of year survey. To break things up a bit more, we shifted our events around. This year, we'll be having the FROGS in January... and that means doing our reviewing event in December! The holiday season in theoretically a time of togetherness, and we wanted to embrace that... and not just within our houses. You'll be teamed up with a different house for each of the first three weekends of December (Saturday-Tuesday), where you'll be working together to beat the other team in a snowball fight. Those teams will have special names, common rooms, and even some blinkies to show your team pride in your signature if you'd like. You'll have the chance to earn extra points and extra snowballs over the course of the fight... and even have the opportunity to block some of the other team's snowballs. We'll also be featuring our prefects' winter writing challenge (which will have some really awesome prizes!) and just playing a lot of fun, low-stress games. The wonderland opens tonight, and the first reviewing snowball fight will start on December 1 at midnight, GMT. We hope you'll check it out! Our first head student has been one of the most active and enthusiastic members of HPFT since the site opened a year and a half ago. We were thrilled to be able to bump them up to prefect last month, and this month has been no exception in their activity. Please join us in congratulating... @BlackPixie! Our second head student is also one of our new prefects. She's come back to the community fairly recently, but she's already made a huge impression with her unfailing friendliness, encouragement, and hard work - most recently, in the NaNo nests and in the Hufflepuff Common Room. A huge thank you to... @Renacerá! A huge congrats to you both - we're thrilled to have you on the team. Please PM me with your choice of what story of yours that you'd like to be featured on the archive, and thank you for everything you do for HPFT! With the chaos of the summer, perfect changes, and the House Cup events, we have missed a few months, but we are back and would like to congratulate this month’s recipient of the Order of Merlin… @BellaLestrange87 Olivia has been an active and friendly presence on the site since it opened, first as a prefect and then as a member of the staff. She’s always willing to lend a helping hand and is always around to answer questions or participate in activities both site-wide and in the Ravenclaw common room. Recently, she has been a commanding presence in the queue, helping validate numerous chapters since she became an Auror, as well as being a huge help in organizing many of the sites upcoming activities. Congratulations once again to Olivia! (award to be edited in) A huge congratulations to @FlamingQuilltips for winning December's SotM! Is destiny determined by Chance or Choice? If it is a bit of both, then, the story began years before that fateful Halloween night. It began before the Prophesy was made. It began when a small, puny boy chanced upon a bright, cheerful young girl. Once Upon The Marauders: The Untold Story of their journey through seven years at Hogwarts. ~Canon Compliant~ banner by loveatfirstview @TDA Every month, HPFT runs Fic Night, where a staff member reads a nominated fic from one of our members.

  2. Hello, all! One of your headmistresses may or may not have been slowly losing her mind over the topic clutter every month , so we decided to compile all of our major monthly announcements into one big bulletin that we'll post at the beginning of the month. (Plus a few headers, because why not.) Hopefully you enjoy this new format! We're happy to announce that @MalfoysAngel will be moving over the gamekeeper position. We won't be adding another professor to replace her right now - we had a couple really strong applications for the position, but our current professors feel like they've got the workload well in hand for the moment. We're sad to announce that @Diogenissa will be stepping down from her position as Slytherin prefect. Karen was one of our very first prefects, and we've loved having her on the team. Thank you, Karen! However, we are very excited to announce that we're welcoming several new people to the prefect team! @BlackPixie (Slytherin) @forever_dreaming (Ravenclaw) @Renacerá (Hufflepuff) @Rumpelstiltskin (Slytherin) Congratulations to all of you - we're psyched to have you on board! congrats awards by @abhorsen. It is officially NaNoWriMo! (Or at least, it is for at least some of you. ) Whether you're aiming for 50k words of a story, are planning to include school papers or reviews in your final word count, or are just rebelling with your own rules, you're welcome in the Crazies' Cafe! We'll be running rat races, talking about our projects, cheering each other on, and procrastinating by playing games all month. In celebration of NaNo, we'll even be opening up the archive's queue - you can now submit five new chapters at a time for the entire month. Happy writing! Our first head student has been a huge asset for her house during a number of House Cup activities, including (most recently) CLUEDO! She's also a dependable, engaged prefect who we know we can always count on. Please join us in congratulating... @clevernotbrilliant! Our second head student is a regular fixture in her common room and has stood out on the archive as well, posting several new chapters and leaving her fellow HPFTers some very lovely and encouraging reviews. Please give it up for... @dirigibleplums! Congratulations to you both - this is super deserved. Please PM me with your choice of what story of yours that you'd like to be featured on the archive, and thank you for everything that you do! awards by @abhorsen. A huge congratulations to @MuggleMaybe for winning October's Story of the Month with her story Beyond Repair (M)! Lily and Petunia were more than sisters; they were best friends. And then, they weren't A series of one shots about Lily and Perunia over the years.
