Did You Know?
Queen Victoria was known for putting jackets and dresses on her pups, causing clothing for dogs to become so popular that fashion houses for just dog clothes started popping up all over Paris. — Fox
It would be easy to assume that Evangeline came to the Lady Morgana only to pick fights. That wasn't true at all. They also had very good biscuits.

WCAB/ MCAB | REP 4+ | Party

Aesthetic is a lot like Bilbo’s Birthday Party. Nothing fancy and no real theme, although expect some chaos because the alcohol will be flowing freely. The decor is minimalist with some wild flowers in vases on all the tables. Children are invited although it’s expected that their parents keep them under control. A band and light refreshments have been set up for an evening,

What: Birthday Party for Zandra Malfoy
Who: the typical UC crowd, some MC* department heads/ministry officials, anyone friendly with the family
Cost: n/a
Where: Malfoy Manor, London
Why: to Celebrate Mama Malfoy!
When: November 23rd, 1893

Hosted by the Malfoy girls, to celebrate their mother's birthday of course! It will be your run of the mill ball, but with cake! And fireworks! After all of the Halloween mischief, it's time to just enjoy a nice evening! The theme for the evening is roses & champagne because I am feeling particularly uncreative today. The ballroom is overflowing with roses of all hues and different bottles of bubbly are available, soft lighting and more whimsical music played.

Back to blonde mid-August '93. Boo.
ACAB | Any || DADA, Transfig, Herbology Extra Credit

What: Skill Practice Scavenger Hunt
Who: Any and all Hogwarts students currently taking DADA, Transfigurations and/or Herbology
Cost: N/A
Where: Hogwarts Greenhouse
Why: Earn some extra credit in DADA, Transfigurations and/or Herbology
When: 28 November, after classes have ended

Each student is given a list of things of 10-15 they must find before they enter the greenhouse (pairs are permitted). The whole space has been transformed into a maze of sorts, with hallways, rooms and dead ends, etc. In order to navigate through the maze, students will need to use different spells they’ve learned over the years to open doors, cause objects to appear, transfigure objects back to their original purposes to use them, and maybe cast a spell or two to get around some plants in their way. (Use your imagination, the possibilities are endless lol.) Once each item is found, it will magically be crossed off the list. Upon the completion of the list, it will be presented to Gus, Mason or Basil who will award some kind of prize, ranging from candy to house points.

How does this work IC wise?
- Complete a thread, 10 posts, at least three being your own. Only 2 participants per thread.
- Gus, Mason or Basil may pop in by request of the player, or randomly if things are looking like they are getting too out of hand, as the three of them are hosting together.
- The first thread participants to complete their thread will be awarded 15 HP, second 10 HP and third 5 HP (Each student will earn the respective amount.)
- When the thread is finished, please PM me (Gus Lissington) with the archived link.

Don’t forget, if you’re taking DADA, you can earn extra HP by threading IC, and the first three threads completed may double up with the above. More details here!

UC/MCAB | REP 6+ | Ball

What: Enchanted Forest Ball
Who: Upper and upper Middle Class society types
Cost: Nope
Where: The Wellingtonshire home of Mr. and Mrs. [insert name here]
Why: Because those who aren't in mourning still need to hobnob
When: November 17

The ballroom of the home has been fully transformed from a standard ballroom to a lush meadow, though the wooden floor remains in place, turned green and enchanted to look like grass. In place of floral arrangements, living plants in pots, concealed by fake moss, have been placed around the ballroom. Wine, lemonade, and light desserts are available on the east edge of the ballroom. Music is provided by a string quartet.
