Re: Still yet another O.O.C.
I'll post in the morning.  I've spent much of the day dealing with an uppity cranky old toilet.  <sigh>  And it's still not 100% fixed.  /rant

That's what husbands were invented for., *shudders* and brothers and fathers..

I can just about fix a stuck ball valve, anything more and I yell for help.

Re: Still yet another O.O.C.
Sheehs, the top part of a toilet should not be dirty inside... unless someone has been upperdecking in your bathroom. Fixing the pipes can be a dirty job. That's what plumbers are for!

Also, please welcome our Mahotokorou student Akane Shimazu. And, yes, she has a tail!

Re: Still yet another O.O.C.
No husband, no dad (he's been dead for decades) and my brothers are both no where near me (and only one of whom I'd trust to do any plumbing!).

Yeah the upper half of a toilet, no problem.  I've even cut pipe and put a new shut off valve in myself!  (so proud)  No, this is a leaky bottom, so it's calling the plumber time.  :/

Welcome to the madhouse, Akane!

Bwahahahahahahah

Re: Still yet another O.O.C.
Okay, everyone welcome Jacques from Beauxbatons and our last fourth year guest. I will be posting some information on the delegations later today for everyone to see. Also, I will post which delegations are staying in which dorms.

Newbies, you can all write a post in the "In the Mean Time..." Thread if you want to do something intro like. My suggestion is to write a brief  post about the last year you spent at your schools etc. This is just to let other see what you will write and act like IC and to give you a chance to stretch your legs IC. Just the one post please.

Announcement: at the end of this year, I will be closing and archiving the current Great Hall and Grounds threads as they have become cluttered messes and badly off topic. I will open new threads with similar names in my style for next year. Especially since I am planning to used the Hall thread a lot.

Also, someone remind me what year it is IC! 2021?

<giggle>  Yes, it is the spring of 2021.  The game started the fall of 2018 (1st year).  The fourth year will start the fall of 2021.

Re: Still yet another O.O.C.
ARRGGHHHH The world hates me

I'm in Ravenclaw dorm.

I'm going to be totally and utterly the slowest and thickest and least magical capable person in almost every lesson. I will rename myself to Neville Longbottom. What is the feminine version of Neville?

Beth... help me out here...

In reply to Liu Bao-Yu (msg # 749):

Hey!  Don't dis our Herbology Professor!  He's alright.

Neville is French for new town.  Don't know any female versions of the name.  Sorry.

Re: Still yet another O.O.C.
I realize that you’ve probably been busy, but since it’s been almost a week since Snape posted the last set of actions and since everyone else has already gone, I thought I’d just give you a friendly nudge Robert and remind you that you’re up.

Re: Still yet another O.O.C.
I think Athene's growing a bit paranoid.  Notice how she didn't say where Claire and the others are?  She's afraid that "Bones" isn't really the real Bones.   LOL

Re: Still yet another O.O.C.
You are paranoid?

In the game I'm from every time I meet my fiancée the first thing we do is an 'are you polyjuiced check'.We have code words set up for 'I'm coerced but can't say any thing' and a code for what to do when kidnapped

Given we've been poisoned gassed, shot at, inperioused and hunted by an ancient evil vampire, attacked by werewolves (twice), chased by corrupt aurora and had our best friend kidnapped and raped by the quidditch coach, we don't see those as paranoid. Right now we are making honeymoon plans involving a cement mixer, lots of barbed wire and a plot of land in Alaska.

Most of that has happened of course, so this incarnation isn't paranoid

Re: Still yet another O.O.C.
Sheesh, you think you're paranoid this year? Wait until my plans for next year! Year 4 has some interesting possibilities for making the students mistrust and suspect everyone inckuding themselves then you throw newly bubbling hormones in the mix, yay, and a big batch of new faces!

Waiting for Claire but things are almost done. Their is one final bit to do to wrap year three. It does require Claire though as it involves her...
