Headmistress Temporarily MIA

Attention Students--Your Headmistress is temporarily AWOL for the next week.  She has received an emergency O.W.L. from the Ministry of Magic requesting her assistance.  Classes will resume at your usual time next Wednesday.

(In reality, flu shots suck.  In what I consider irony, while I don't have the actual flu, my shot is causing me to exhibit flu like symptoms due to my body producing antibodies.  The doctors says it's normal, but I'll feel like crap for the next couple of days and tired for at least four.  So, I'm using this as an excuse to sleep and play catch up on this community.  Sorry for the inconvenience!)

North Tower, Trelawney's Office--Divination 501 with Prof. Trelawney

Settle down students and calm your auras.  You have chosen to study Divination, the most difficult of all magical arts.  I must warn you at the outset that is you do not have the Sight, there is very little I will be able to teach you.  Books can take you only so far in this field.  The fates have informed me that your O.W.L. examination at year's end will concern the Orb, and I am anxious to give you sufficient practice. 

Gaze into you orbs, broaden you minds, my dears, and allow your eyes to see past the mundane!  See a world of exaggeration, of vivid colors, of glory!  See your futures, children!  Your orbs do not lie, and they behold all your fates--you are destined to create works of art that pay homage to another...Madam GrandePre!

Seventh Floor, Arithmancy Classroom--Arithmancy 501 with Prof. Vector

All right, class, let's jump right into things.  This is Arithmancy 501.  We won't be looking into teacups reading leaves here,  Save that fancy for Divination with Trelawney.  No, Arithmancy means "number prophecy" loosely in Greek, and it a a more accurate way of predicting our future.  Number patterns exist in real life, and they can be calculated to give information regarding our future.

Not too long ago, two young boys were the center of of the greatest prophecy of them all--who was to become 'The Chosen One".  We all know the outcome, as Mr. Potter has been written into our wizarding history books.  But dare we not forget the boy who could have been, Neville Longbottom,  He fought bravely alongside Mr. Potter, and is a hero in his own right. 

Thus, this week's lesson pays tribute to the sacrifices and services of one Mr. Neville Longbottom.

Round Rules:
-Icons must feature Neville Longbottom
They may include other characters, but Mr. Longbottom must be a main focal point.
-All brushes, blends, and bases are allowed
-Animation is allowed this round
-Any caps, fanart, book art, textures, etc. are allowed for bases

Challenge Rules:
-You may submit only one (1) icon.
-All icons must be 100x100 pixels, 40 kb or less, and in GIF/PNG/JPG format
-All icons must be original and new.
-Submit your icon with both the image and the URL


-Icons must be turned in by Tuesday, October 13th at 11:59 pm US CST.

The Grounds, Quidditch Pitch--Inter-House Tournament Match Results by Madam Hooch

*Whistle blown* Listen up, students! Madam Hooch, here to announce the end of the Quidditch season. There were some close games, and everyone brought their A-game. Some familiar but some new students shined, and you should all be proud.

To streamline the game statistics, all match results are posted below. Team scores are posted, but individual players' are not.

The Quidditch Inter-House Tournament overall champions (team and individual) will be announced shortly in a separate post. Congrats to everyone on a successful and entertaining season!
