Did you know?

The Language of the Flowers was a popular method to express feelings where words might be improper, but did you know other means of doing so? Some ladies used their parasols, as well as their fans, gloves, and hankies to flirt with a gentleman (or alternatively, tell them to shove it!). — Bree

Ester Montgomery for Thomas Montgomery. The one that got away (with the pornographer...)
This boy, then. He wasn't new. Wasn't one of the worst people in the common room, those rotten rich boys - like Mr. Jailkeeper - who could not fathom a world beyond their own farts. Was a good working class lad, so he'd heard. Had a bit of a weird looking face, and a bit of a weird thing for preaching. Still.

June 2018

Happy June! All students and most faculty have now returned home for the summer holidays. Reminder that individuals under seventeen are not permitted to use magic out and about in their daily lives ;)

With the end of the school year comes the start of prefect season, the two months in which characters (and players) lusting after student staff positions can have a run at it!  For instructions, details, or to get your application rolling, click here!

The Summer Solstice Festival will open later this month, but the carnival workers who accompany it are soon to start their quarantine. That means that we're now accepting carnie applications! Just be sure you don't thread them at Hogsmeade Hospital until the 3rd, and not anywhere else until the 17th.

From an OOC perspective, we have TWO summer-long events launching today!

CHARMING SUMMER RAFFLE: Do you like prizes? So do we! Participate in our summer raffle for your chance to win one of twenty prizes from now through the Septmeber AC! (read more)

SUMMER READING CHALLENGES 2018: Writers are readers—but are you willing to put that to the test? We're kicking off not one but THREE summer reading challenges across different genres! (read more)

We’ve also launched our June writing challenge, and it’s a bit different to our usual! Check it out, and get those gears turning.

Finally, today is the LAST DAY to sign up for June posting wizard, and tomorrow is our June AC!

The AC is underway—deactivations have been completed, and just a couple of lists remain to tidy up! Remember that if you lost a character you did not wish to lose, you may post in maintenance to take their soul back from the reaper starting Wednesday, June 6th.

Posting Wizard has rolled over! May's winners were Fallin (Sisse Thompsett) with 77 and Lauren (Elladora Black) with 57. This month will be an epic showdown amongst Beanie, Olive, MJ, Te, Lady, Lynn, Kelly, Kit, and Meeka!

CAMP CHARMING 2018: Back from last year, Camp Charming launches today and is here to encourage community involvement and continued activity through the summer months! Keep your eyes peeled for loads of fun events in tandem with this! (read more)

A strange fog has encompassed all of Salem Square in Irvingly! The fog is thick and seemingly magic in origin, but you can walk in and out as you please. You cannot see very far into or out of it even when walking through, and weirdly enough it is making everything smell dusty.

Magical Accidents & Catastrophes has been dispatched to observe the fog, but is officially still observing the 'no magic' rule that Irvingly touts.

Charming is EIGHT years old today! I'm generally not comfortable speaking for others, but feel confident speaking for the whole staff team when I say thank you so, SO much to each and every player who has helped make our little corner of the internet what it is today <3

Come spend the day with us — and don't forget to grab your commemorative stamp! Here's to many more!

Hello, it's your retired admin filling in today! ;)

The fog has spread to encompass Wellingtonshire as of this morning. For information on what the fog does, remember to read "No Magic in Irvingly!"

Also, we have 4 new themes released today! Thank you to everyone who submitted banners. We saved a few for our autumn themes. A HUGE HUGE HUGE thank you goes to Miss Olive, who spent countless hours fixing and tweaking code to get everything perfect for us. <333
SITE-WIDE PLOT 8: Probably you should read the event description and this article if you wanna be on the up-and-up.

Not a thread today, but an important heads up of some impending doom deadlines & other reminders! Further, the July AC will take place on Saturday, July 7th! To ensure you survive, please make sure that...
  • Your mini-profile is filled in with height properly formatted
  • All of your characters have been listed in the Character Directory—check back on your entries to make sure they were processed properly!
  • Characters made before the last AC have posted at least once this month
  • This one's more for staff, but that your full profile has been filled in ;)
If all of the above are squared away, there should be no reason for you to fall inactive in the upcoming check!  To our new members: the AC requires no work on your part. The staff team simply makes sure the above is seen to!

The 7th will also be be the first draw of our summer raffle ;) June's PW winners will get their entries put in BEFORE drawing.
