  1. Hello Elyse! Welcome to the Sett indeed. My welcome's a bit late, so please accept the muffins and butterbeer in exchange. I'm happy to help you find your way around the Sett and/or HOL. And if neither of us know where to go, at least we'll get lost together. I know the question was not directed at me Prof. Tarma, but I just saw FB3 movie, and oh my lord, I love Newt more with each movie.
  2. First to turn in the 2048 is... Professor Will Lestrange with a 1024 Right on his heels is.. Louis Walles also with a 1024 Followed by: Harry Walles with 1024 Astor Arensin with 512 Elena Galatas with a 2048 Skylar Peyton with a 256
  3. Is child-rearing at 'home' a job? Some say yes, some say no. It's very difficult to raise a single kid, much less more. I'm a stay at home mother to four littles, one older and a pack of triplets. Very difficult, but oh so rewarding. I'm firmly on the yes side. You don't really get hours or days off, not like in other jobs. You're always present and you're always in demand. I'm lucky to have a good partner and support system so I get the time to myself when needed. Some parents, especially single mothers and fathers, don't have that luxury. More power to them!
  4. The best thing my egg donor ever did for me was leave. I've got other women in my life that one could call mother figures. I'm very much of the opinion 'it takes a village...', which I share with my father. He has and had a lot of women on his side of the family and while I don’t have a mother, I’ve got plenty of aunts, female cousins and ‘grandmothers’. It suited me just fine. I don’t think there’s anything women in my family ever did for me that they didn’t do for the others. Everyone was treated equal to each other and no one wanted for anything. I could say they gave me more attention, at least for a short time after my egg donor left, but the rest of the kids never gave me reason to think that was bad. At least not to my face.
  5. There’s a lot of islands that I want to visit, or visit again. Too many to properly count. I want to go to Bora Bora, but I admit it’s purely because of it’s wallpaper huts on the water. I’ve no clue whether I’d enjoy it there, but that perfection tickles my fancy to spend at least a few days in one of the little huts. I’ve also got a weakness for European islands, especially those on the Adriatic and Mediterranean. Santorini and Sardinia are some that look just magical to visit and immerse in the local culture and cuisine. Maybe we’ll all go someday when all the littles aren’t so little anymore. It’d make for a fun family vacation.
  6. I’ve been to Tobago, which is one of the islands of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago. A long time ago, my family came from there and when I was in my early teens to early twenties, I’ve visited a couple of times with my memaw. It’s a rather small island by some countries’ standards, with a population of just a little over 60,000 inhabitants a decade ago. You get there by flying, to either Trinidad or Tobago, though sometimes we took a ferry to enjoy the sights. There’s so much to tell about this wonderful island, so I’ll tell what I was most surprised about. Just how hot it is every day! Temperatures are consistent around 80s (26C) all through the year. While I love summer and the sun, I don’t think I’d be able to handle no winter or cool days.
  7. The chance to earn the bonus Diamonds is up! You may continue to post, though, through May 14th, 11:59 pm HOL time and earn some Diamonds.

  9. I’ve always been fascinated by the ‘fantastic beasts’ part of the movies. It’s been such a pleasure finding out how some creatures look or discovering new ones from other cultures. We still have two movies to go in the franchise (at least by the original plan), so let me ask you, what magical or mythological creature would you like to see depicted next? Is there a particular creature from your culture that you’d love to see on the big screen? What is it? Out of those already existing in Harry Potter world, is there a magical creature you’d like to have at home? Write a post with at least 100 words and earn 15 Diamonds! If you write another one of at least another 100 words, you can earn additional 15 Diamonds, too. Note: Please, do not post twice in a row in a short time! Wait for someone else to post, or 24 hours, before posting again. You have until May 14th, 11:59 pm HOL time to earn your Diamonds. If you respond within a week of this being posted, though, you earn an additional 3 bonus Diamonds. Please, be mindful of the spoilers for the latest movie (trailers’ spoilers are allowed)! Not everyone has the ability to see the movie the moment it came out. Please, mark them appropriately.
  10. There are a couple wonderful new creatures introduced in Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore. The Qilin is renowned in many places of the world. Different people are aware of this wondrous creature and her attributes. Somewhat oddly, though, the Qilin sometimes takes a somewhat different shape depending on where it manifests (and sometimes is called by a slightly different name)! Choose one of these two Qilin pictures and color it in. You earn 30 Diamonds when you post your picture! Picture One Direct link to Picture One. Picture Two Direct link to Picture Two. You have until May 14th, 11:59 PM HOL time to post your picture below and earn 30 Diamonds! You earn a bonus of 3 Diamonds, though, if you do so within a week of me posting this.
  11. Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore doesn't seem to focus on the 'beasts' so much, nothing like the first two movies did. But we still have new creatures showing up! There's the Qilin and Blast-Ended Skrewts which seem new to me! Graphic shows a picture of the Qilin from the FB3 movie. In the meantime, we can celebrate the Fantastic Beasts to whom we've already been introduced with this 2048. Fantastic Beasts 2048 Remember - you start earning Diamonds when the number in the picture (not the SCORE in the upper left hand corner) reads 256. If you get to 256 (#8) - that is 20 Diamonds (and counts for partial Challenge Master Diamonds) If you get to 512 (#9) - that is 25 Diamonds If you get to 1024 (#10) - that is 30 Diamonds (and counts for full Challenge Master Diamonds) If you get to 2048 (#11) - that is 35 Diamonds By the way, you earn a bonus of 3 Diamonds if you send your score to me within a week of me posting this! Send me a screencap of your game via Sett PM (titled FB3 - 2048) by May 14th, 11:59 PM HOL time to earn your Diamonds. Please tell me in your PM your 'high' score (the highest number in the picture, not the score above the picture off to the side). Sometimes that 'win' (or 'game over') thing covers up the highest score. Note: If you continue to play and get a higher score, send it in, and I'll update the post to show your new score.
  12. More people who turned in the solution are... Mia Fountain Louis Walles Harry Walles Silvana Mandeville Skylar Peyton

  14. Thank you guys! <3 It was indded a wonderful and magical day.
  15. In the trailer, we see that a Muggle (or a No-Maj), Jacob Kowalski, has visited Hogwarts. Hermione explains in the books that “It’s bewitched.” and “If a Muggle looks at it, all they see is a mouldering old ruin with a sign over the entrance saying DANGER, DO NOT ENTER, UNSAFE.” Yet, there are exceptions to the rule. Some Muggle parents can enter the castle under extenuating circumstances and we do have Jacob visiting the castle. Put yourself in the shoes of a Muggle, or a No-Maj. What do you see when you first enter Hogwarts or its grounds? Do you see a mouldering ruin? Maybe the castle in its entire splendor? Alternatively, what do you think Jacob and Muggle parents see and how they deal with it? We also see Jacob with a wand and it's very unusual, so to say, to see a Muggle with it. How do you think he'll learn to use it? Do you think the lessons differ in each school? How would Hogwarts, Ilvermorny, Beauxbatons or any other school teach a non-magical person to use a wand? Would they even let them? Write at least 100 words and earn 15 Diamonds! If you write another post of at least another 100 words, you can earn another 15 Diamonds, too. Note: Please, do not post twice in a row in a short time! Wait for someone else to post, or 24 hours, before posting again. You have until May 14th, 11:59 pm HOL time to earn your Diamonds. If you respond within a week of this being posted, though, you earn an additional 3 bonus Diamonds. Please, be mindful of the spoilers for the latest movie (trailers’ spoilers are allowed)!
