I know right I'd given up on getting in then got in and squealed like a little kid, ask Volynski if you don't believe me, lol.

And this is the result of my potion making, I decided to go rogue and see how fast I could blow one up, biggrin.gif

Achlys..I wanted Gryffindor...My true house tongue.gif



ME TO! But I got sorted into Hufflepuff, I mean its not to bad
but I really wanted Gryffindor, although it might not have helped
that I did my sorting when I hadn't slept the night before, lol
that might have had something to do with it. I might make
another account when it officially opens in October, but I am
on the fence on doing that to. But for right now I am going to
be loyal to my Hufflepuff's even though I know that I am a
true Gryffindor at heart!

The wand thing, what I did was pull it up there with my mouse (well, technically it's a multi-touch trackpad, same difference.....), then the lightning stuff came out, and I slowly kind of pulled the wand away (slowly) until the lightning vanished. And I think it helps to make sure that it stays in the temperature range during that time. Does anyone know how to stir counterclockwise?

EDIT: Oh, and I love your signature, Prof. Petrov. *snickers evilly*

Yes but I am a potions teacher it is rather bad blowing my cauldron up intentionally or not, lol.

Bet Dakota did it and just didn't tell anyone...*snickers*...and thanks it is quite fitting for her actually.

I never figured out how to do counterclockwise yet lol. I only melted a cauldron in practice cause I had no clue how to do the whole wand thing.

The wand thing boggles me and I have a laptop and no mouse to go with it so the entire process gets all messed up using only my lappy pad.

MacBooks are better! Sorry, I'm a kind of Apple fanatic. It's worked fine for me, except the whole stirring thing.

Off (but somehow on) topic: Dakota, you should totally add my canon request to the wall. And find the password to the existing Peeves account. Not to be pester-y or disrespectful or rude or pushy or anything! Note: the reason this is somewhat on topic is because my canon request is for a new canon derived from Pottermore.

Cauldrons blown up to date: I lost count. Guessing about 4. Fortunately, they were all practice.

Huh? I thought, I changed Peeves Password *Head Desk* Hey come they didn't add more info on Peeves in the first book like when he first came to Hogwarts and played pranks on the students.

I don't know if you changed the password; maybe you did, but you didn't tell me. biggrin.gif

Yeah, more info on Peeves would have been nice. Oh well, they still have six more books. Wait, if they haven't even opened the CoS to us yet, how are they going to get the whole thing done by October? Or are they just being mean?

Achlys...Yeah I was thinking of doing the same thing...I was going to wait for October and try again...because i dont think I was really trying at the sorting questions. Plus, I won't be able to go on pottermore for a week or two since I'm on vacation and the internet here is limited. So I am holding off on pottermore till I go back home. And by the time that happens there would only be a couple days till October. So really I wouldn't lose anything tongue.gif

I finally checked my email today and surprise for me, my welcome email and then I had forgotten my password so I had to get a new one. . . I blame them!

Anyway, I was sorted into . . . Gryffindor . . . I always knew I wasn't a Ravenclaw and my wand is very nice but I am not about to try brewing a potion until I get up in the morning, oh it is morning, okay when I wake up. I like all the interesting facts and extra info. Fun!

You'll get your email soon Timotej. So we need to wait until CoS is opened to explore the area? I dont get it.

Damaged cauldrons: around 4.
