Haha yeah once you start reading them you can't stop until you're done!

Hullo would love to join! I'm a Hufflepuff :) Keen to see this one more active than the one I led a few years ago :P

Will post my supplies sometime later!

Quick note - the other day 'Cursed Child' tickets went on sale for next year, and I was able to get some tickets for May 2019, keeeeeen! Has anyone seen it yet?

Also going to this play which may or may not be based on Hogwarts, later this week, should be good!

Welcome! Jake will be thrilled to hear there's another Hufflepuff :D

I've never heard of Puffs either! I bought Cursed Child a few years ago but still haven't got around to reading it, haha. I'm not generally that big on plays so the format of the book threw me off a bit at first, but I hear great things about it and still intend to get around to it.

Yess I was thinking that too! House points for participation, maybe even for the whole series, I just wasn't sure how high many people would be interested/if we can schedule a time for people who are interested to participate

I'd have to do a Friday evening or Saturday

WE SHOULD WATCH THE WHOLE SERIES TOGETHER

I think the best movie was the sixth. I didn't much like the book more than the rest, but the movie was something else. Well made, dramatic, strong, visually beautiful.

    @Rika that's surprising! I haven't heard a lot of good things about the 6th movie and I didn't like it as much myself (but it definitely had its moments) - I still liked it overall but I found the pacing kind of weird and they really tried to sell Harry & Ginny as a couple even though they were kind of terrible together on screen. I loved the book though, so it's interesting that we're reversed on that one, haha.

    I've always been really partial to Goblet of Fire, I don't know if I'd call it the best but I always have so much fun watching it, the tournament gets so tense.

    I should figure out a way to host a Goblet of Fire-like tourney in this club too, that would be so fun!

    Prisoner of Azkaban is probably my favorite of the books ^^

    But the Philosopher's Stone is also great because of its cute fairy tale like style. They're so young and innocent still!

    IKR, I always love starting the series right from the beginning - some people get bored with the first one if they've watched it a lot, but I still always love the magic of preparing for and arriving at Hogwarts for the first time with Harry. I want to shop with Hagrid

        LOL of course (fixed that)

        I've always been very drawn to animals, so I loved Care of Magical Creatures, too! I think they expand on it more in the books, and it always seemed so cool to me, learning about all these weird creatures. I also have the mini-"textbook" Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and I loved reading about all the magical creatures there, even the ones that don't appear in the main series.

        I definitely think my favorite class would be Transfiguration or Charms. The former has really neat spells, and the latter has some really practical, efficient spells. :D

        If...I had to choose between the two, I guess the adult in me says Charms would be better for day-to-day life.

        Definitely DADA. And Flying! Ok, both, it's a tie. I'd LOVE to learn to fly a broomstick and become good at it. But DADA is so fascinating.

        final tally


        Adding in the last 2 points updates from Adventure, the final tally is:



        85


        45


        45


        5



        And the August House Cup goes to...



        GRYFFINDOR!

        That concludes the activities for August, and a brand new term will begin for Hogwarts. Start earning points for the September House Cup now!

        To kick off the new term, here's a new discussion question:
        Who are your favourite characters in the series, and why?


        And remember, do let me know when you've made 5 posts in this thread so I know to award you house points!

        Yayy! Brave Gryffs (well it's only me maybe, idk)

        In the books, I really like the Weasleys. Not Percy perhaps, but the rest are so cool. Fred and George might be my absolute favs (preference for George somehow, he seems like the underdog twin) and Ginny is so sweet and tough too.

          Debating whether to join or not(Not a hardcore fan). Never read the books or watched the movies all too much(they seem to be on a ton though...), but I got a few topics of discussion for you all. Favorite film is probably Chamber of Secrets with Professor Lockehart(who acts like me sometimes lol). Anyways, feel free to answer them, if at all.

          1) Which Pokemon best represents each House of Hogwarts?
          2) Which Pokemon best represents each character? Ex: Alakzam for Hermione or Female Meowstic instead? Can do as many as you want.
          3) Is Voldemort more insane than any antagonist in Pokmon? Ex: Ghetsis
          4) Is Blue more of an Asshat than Draco?
          5) Is Ash Pokemons version of Harry Potter? Ex: Always manages to save the day while dying but not really dying?

          Don't have to be a hardcore fan to join! These are fun questions, I'm gonna answer the first one and give the rest some thought when I get home.

          Gryffindor: Pyroar or Arcanine
          Slytherin: I think Serperior is a good fit, it even has that kind of arrogant look to it :p
          Hufflepuff: Linoone
          Ravenclaw: Murkrow, maybe? The "hat" kind of looks like a wizard's hat too, so that works.

          @Rika the Weasley twins are actually my favourites, too! I'm more partial to Fred though, he's the bigger troublemaker IIRC and I think he's funnier, but they're both great.

            To answer my own questions:

            1) Gryffindor: Pyroar more so than Arcanine. Granted the biased person in me would pick Vulpix/Ninetales(even if it has nothing to do with a Lion). Slytherin: Seviper or Ekans. Ravenclaw: Suggests a majestic Raven or Bird like a Phoenix, hence Id go with Talonflame. Finally Hufflepuff: Badger so Linoone or Zangoose.

            2) Hermione: Gothitelle. Fred and George: Gengar and Sableye? Harry: Serperior. Ron: Timid Squirtle. May do more lol

            3) Seeing as Voldemort wanted to purge the world of Non-Pure Wizards and non-magical folk, youd think hed win this argument. Thing is, Lysander, Ghetsis and other Pokmon antagonists wanted to destroy/reshape the world and were indiscriminate or didnt care who would be harmed by their acts. At least Voldemorts actions, as deranged as they were, were restrained unlike those in Pokmon.

            4) Draco was an ass but Blue is #1 Asshat

            5) Have to say Yes. If Harry Potter is killed but not really killed in the Deathly Hallows finale(not to mention coming close on several occasions), then Ash dying but not dying in several movies has to qualify.

            Ill think about membership btw.

            Boo, Gryffindor! Boo!!!

            To answer the first question - my favorite character in the series is probably Hermione. I think my perspective toward her changed after my most recent read-through. She deals with so much, and is so clever and resourceful.

            Wow I agree with Juno 100% on this.
            Pyroar - Gryffindor.
            Serperior - Slytherin
            Murkrow - Ravenclaw
            Linoone - Hufflepuff

            I wouldn't say he's insane as much as he is obsessed with power.

            Absolutely. There's no question about it.

            5) Is Ash Pokemons version of Harry Potter? Ex: Always manages to save the day while dying but not really dying?
            Yes. Both give us an eye to the Pokemon world, are the main protagonist/etc.
