You two are just so .....
Here's some coffee for Sirius ...

That's so homely! We have them in the Roost as well. :sits down and noms on one:
My name is Gail - sorry I shouldn't be talking while I eat :swallows:
There, that's better. I am a first year Ravenclaw - very ickle. Actually I'm almost an egg still having joined HOL only two months ago. But it feels like so much longer. There is just so much to do and so many thing happening that you can be a part of. I really am enjoying myself and very much regret not joining a few years back when I first discovered HOL, but didn't have the time I do now. Though maybe I would have been sad then that there were so many things I wanted to be a part of that I couldn't be because I didn't have the time. Maybe.
Also I feel very at home here in the sett. I have always felt that if not Ravenclaw (where I have admittedly always felt I belonged) I would be a hufflepuff. I feel that the hufflepuff values are the ones that best suit me after Ravenclaw's. And that maybe your house's are perhaps the most noble of all the houses. Not the most flashy by any means, but very noble.
Hope to see you all around HOL!

What a lovely surprise that I came home to right now.
After celebrating Valentine's Day with 24 8 - 9 year olds I just wanted to sit down and relax.
Which I did, and come to the Sett.
And what do I find?.... wonderful Valentine messages from some lovely, sneaky people.
Thank you all ... it made my day.

Hello! I'm Amanda. *ROARS*
I joined HOL quite a few years back and was super active for a year plus, then reality kicked in and I had to go attend to it, so I left this place for a while and got stuck on Second Year. But now that I have more time on my hands, I'm back here to earn some points and have fun! Most people I knew back then don't seem to be around, and the Gryffindor common room is so freaking quiet, so I came to other common rooms to take a peek. And I'm glad to find you all here!

Oh, I never introduced myself here
I am Kim, a second year Gryffindor student.
I joined HOL in August 2014 and now I need to make a Hello post for a class I am doing

Welcome to the Fireside in our Common room come and chat around the fire. This is the place to introduce yourself tell us what House and year you are in, and a little bit about yourself
I will leave snacks for you to eat while you chat, because chatting makes you hungry
Leaves blueberry muffins still warm from the oven and butterbeer on the table.

I love boggle, so I'm really happy! I've only played with my family before, but I like to think that I'm fairly good at it
I'm really excited about this!

What a lovely couple of days. Yesterday I woke up to Hedwig's theme playing in my head and yes, it was the 20th anniversary date of the publication of Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone!
All kinds of celebrations are held in all kinds of places, including Facebook where, if you type Hufflepuff, Slytherin, Gryffindor, Ravenclaw or Harry Potter, a wand magically appears and sheds all kinds of sparks on the page!
But today ...
I've got a bird feeder and all kinds of creatures come visit and feast. For years I've heard doves but they never came by. Finally, in April, one came to feed.
This morning, there were TWO doves at the feeder! Then a little while later, a hummingbird came and perched on a branch about 4 feet from me (where I was sitting in a chair very very quietly).
A gorgeous day.
How is your day? See any bird or critter people to come and say hi?
EDIT: I'm thinking I need a bird bath. Something from which they can drink, above ground level. I have a tray (1-1/2 inches - 2 inches deep and about 14"x14" rectangular) on the ground, but ... something on a stand would be nice. Sure it would freeze in the winter, but then, so does the tray on the ground freeze in the winter and I have to clean out ice and put in fresh each morning.

After spending Valentine's Day visiting my mother in the hospital and waiting for roadside assistance to change a flat tire, it was such a treat to see the Sett all decked out and read the messages. Thank you Operation Heart-Shaped Confetti members - you made my day! <333

Yeah, thanks a lot! Your postcards brightened my day.

I'm Aidan, a first-year Eagle who loves reading, writing, playing guitar, travel and skateboarding, along with loads of other things! I originally found HOL when I was in highschool, but was never really able to commit due to a full-on lifestyle. Since then, my life is a bit more settled and structured, and I felt the need to find a place to geek out about my Harry Potter fascination and meet some like-minded online friends. I can't say I have been disappointed. HOL has really filled an intellectual gap in my life, I'm loving exploring this amazing place and getting an opportunity to be creative and have some fun.

Hello I'm Ale, a Fourth Year Gryffindor!
I've joined this CR some time ago, but I don't think I was ever able to introduce myself I like writing and reading, listening to music and eating pizza LOL
(Well, are those banana muffins? I like them, too!)
*says hello to everyone and grabs a muffin*

Ooh, i love blueberry muffins!
I'm a first-year Slytherin and I love how much the houses are interacting with each other outside of classes; the Holidays are the best! I really enjoy doing and making puzzles.
Aside from Harry Potter, I also like Lord of the Rings, the Black Company, Sailor Moon, Doctor Who, Leverage, and Jessica Jones.

thanks everyone!! Guess what my gift was- we're going to see the OFF OFF OFF Broadway show Puffs tomorrow!!!! I'm soooooo excited lol- I saw an ad for it on Facebook and mentioned it to my husband that I NEEDED to go to this show about HUFFLEPUFFS!!! I'll let you know how it was after I see it :-)

I know how much Cosmo likes to knit, so here is a knitting book just for Doctor Who!!!

Hello! My name is Rowan, I'm a first year Gryffindor taking HOL 101 - which is how I found this forum! Even though every house personality quiz puts me in Hufflepuff last, I do think that we could all benefit from Hufflepuff values, especially online. As far as favorite recipes go, I think the best is the Lemon-Lavender Pound cake I made last week, YUM!
Posted by Meredith Malkins on 15 February 2017 - 08:26 PM
I think it's fair to say that the last two months have been the worst start of the year for me. I've had to be very sporadic with doing any HOL because I've been very unwell, so I only managed to come in today. Thanks so much, those messages made me so happy!
