Did you know?

First names were most often used by childhood or school friends. If the friendship was made after school age, first names would only really be used by women. Men were far more likely to refer to their friends by their surnames, a mark of familiarity. — Documentation

WANTED:

Emilia Wright for Jude Wright. Casually alienating offspring since 18882.
Separating was also not a great idea, though they weren't doing great at staying together anyway. If she were to volunteer to be the human sacrifice.. well... Hogsmeade had plenty of debutantes anyway...

Barnabas Skeeter in CYOA: Group D

Hogsmeade Station
0 Topics   |   0 Posts

The only train station that travels to and from Hogwarts, Hogsmeade Station is your one-stop-shop for all transportation needs. Almost kitschy in atmosphere, the station is made of big, melodramatic archways and high, vaulted ceilings that serve little purpose. The colors tend to be equally gaudy, and artwork, upholstery, trains, and floor tiles range in color from royal purple to neon orange. A handful of restaurants and gift shops can also be found within.

Bursting with activity at all hours of the day, every respectable (or not) establishment can be found along this avenue, wide enough to accommodate the constant rush of pedestrians and carriages. The Three Broomsticks, Ollivander's and many other businesses can be found in varying states of occupation all day and all night.

Sorry Doesn't Cut It by Lucinda Cavanaugh
Yesterday – 3:06 AM

A cut above all of the rest, Wellingtonshire is the residential district for those of considerable wealth. Though the houses are tightly compacted and built somewhat like miner's homes, the outer facades are deceiving. Enchanted to hold more than they ought, the homes of Wellingtonshire are exceptionally and intimidatingly grand on the inside, and few pedestrians litter the immaculately kept streets for fear of being thought of as potential thieves.

As the World Falls Down by Percival Adlard Jr.
September 18, 2018 – 2:29 PM

Padmore Park is a green expanse located next to North Bartonburg and the Black Lake. Greenery is spread all around with bright and colorful flowers sprinkled thickly. Among the sprawling grass and shady copse of twisted trees are paved paths, for walking or bicycling. Benches are scattered through the park. Several decorated boats are enchanted to give lazy and gentle rides around the pond, though the spells are not strong enough to resist the tampering of troublemakers. Several families of ducks have decided to make the park their home, as have dozens of songbirds. In the evenings, the park is lit up by golden orbs that levitate above the walking paths. They have been known to become attached to a person and to try to follow them home. A person of any class is welcome here, though most stick to their own social circles and ignore the rest.

Anything Can Happen by Sampson Browne
Yesterday – 2:24 AM

Home of the middle class, the Bartonburg District is a modest but extremely dense bit of Hogsmeade, holding more than half of its inhabitants in a series of townhouses that all interconnect in various, confusing ways. Homes are known to be stacked aslant on top of one another, though naturally the magic ingrained into the architecture makes the homes of the Bartonburg District sturdy, cozy, and just big enough for your average family.
Pennyworth

The Slums are just as glamorous as they sound. Small, squat buildings line the streets, which are littered with garbage and muck. Though during the day The Slums are unpleasant, it's the night which really gives the area a bad name — even those who live here are rarely seen outdoors after nightfall, as the shadiest of characters can be found in every nook and cranny.

A Fishy Situation by Silas Wild

Cold and mysterious, the Black Lake looks exactly the way it sounds - the depths in the middle of the lake are so deep that the water takes on a blackish hue. Closer to shore the bluer the water is. Within its depths live a colony of merfolk, a giant squid, various grindylows, and unknown other aquatic species.

Thick and dark, the Forbidden Forest offers many dangers for those adventurous enough to breech its borders. Magical creatures of all kinds call the forest home, though not all are friendly. Please note that Hogwarts students are strictly forbidden from entering the forest, and risk punishment from the Headmaster. Enter the forest at your own risk.

Sprouting a Friendship by Silas Wild
Today – 2:21 AM

As wide and varied as the rooms of the school itself, the school grounds extend for what seems like eternity. However, there are certain landmarks students learn to identify as the brink of permissible exploration. Overall, the grounds are beautiful, even with its occasionally violently vile quirks.

Dear Old Friend by Lydia Lockhart
Yesterday – 11:16 PM

When not being used for meals, the hall is a common place for students to meet in order to talk, study, and generally mingle. The room is amorphous in appearance: the ceiling is alternately starlit, filled by floating candles, garnished with garishly opulent colors, or decorated for the holidays. The tapestries on the walls likewise change depending on the headmaster's mood. The only solid features are the four tables for the four houses, the staff table at the front of the room, and the headmaster's podium.

Still Here, Eh? [NEWT Level Charms] by Lydia Lockhart
Yesterday – 10:23 PM

The corridors of Hogwarts are just as varied as the classrooms - some are wide, some narrow, some tall, some you have to duck in order to pass through and some seem to shift direction as you pass by. They lead to the different rooms in the castle, while some lead to nothing at all.

Sickle for Your Thoughts by Arabella Wood
Yesterday – 10:11 PM

The lower levels of the castle are located underground. The basement is the first level where the Hufflepuff Common Room can be found alongside the kitchens. Below the basement are the dungeons. Underneath the Black Lake, the dungeons are as ominous and chilly as they sound and their labyrinthine passages are almost identical in appearance, making it easy to get lost. Besides the Slytherin Common Room, the dungeons also contain the potions classroom and the Potion Master's office. Other, less frequently used rooms, can be found in the dungeons and are sometimes used for detentions, among other things.

Charmed, I'm Sure by Abigail Langley
September 18, 2018 – 12:11 AM

The area around Irvingly is filled with a lush forest. Set about a mile into the forest is Lake Greer, a lake nearly the same size as the town itself. It holds freshwater fish of the non magical variety. The hollow offers room to hunt, forage and explore. Meadows are woven in and out of it at random. The northwest section possesses steep hills and small mountains that are accompanied by valleys and creeks throughout.

The Tower by Gideon Ollivander
September 18, 2018 – 6:54 PM

The north side of Irvingly is decidedly different than the south. While the muggles had solid homes built for them, the magical residents were left to their own devices when it came to shelter. Homes of different styles and skill levels have been erected. Magic is not allowed on the streets even in the north side, so wizards have to be careful to keep such things inside the privacy of their homes.

Fruitless by Abigail Langley
Yesterday – 6:19 PM

The commercial district lies in the very heart of Irvingly. The casino and the home and office of the Magical Liaison are set at the very center, a perfect location for neutrality. Over time, more and more businesses have grown around them, and a large, open area lies just in front. For more information on Irvingly, see here.

Originally made of poorly built ramshackle huts, the south side of Irvingly has since been remade into neat and organized red brick and stone two story homes that are identical in appearance. The muggles tend to stick to this side of the town in order to avoid running into the magic folk.

The largest city in Britain—larger even than the muggles know. With several magical side streets accessible only to those who know they are there, the city boasts the most commercial magic activity outside of Hogsmeade.

Break A Leg by Theodore Gallivan
September 3, 2018 – 12:01 AM

A large, imposing facade marks the entrance to the Ministry, however, the facade is just that; upon entering the building in Hogsmeade or London, you are transported to the atrium of the Ministry of Magic building in London. The main floor, the atrium, is located on the first floor. Gold gilded fire places are pressed up against two of the walls and serve for arrivals and departures. The floor is black and white checkered squares, while the ceiling stretches up so high that one cannot see it. It is a vast blackness and most try not to look at it. Farther down the room is a long hallway which holds several lifts, operated by a person of lower class. The lifts can move forward, backward, right as well as left and are able to reach all the way up to the ninth floor.

Friendly Offerings by Zinnia Potts

Tightly-packed buildings pile high over the narrow cobblestone streets in the hub of Magical London. Though the area is primarily commercial, some magical residents have taken on flats above the myriad shops that line the district. Accessed via the rear of The Leaky Cauldron.
