Gryffindor Wins the Cup   Leave a comment

I can just imagine Lee Jordan announcing the winners in a Quidditch game or Dumbledore awarding the House Cup at the end of the school year.  Anyway, congratulations!  *turns away and cries for a moment*

My Last Hurray for CoS   Leave a comment

Alas, I had to end my Pottermore session.  And so before the 2nd Pottermore House Cup is awarded, here is my last hurray.   Once more, I just want to preserve the achievements I made so far.

My Total House Points:

My Dueling Points:

 

My Potions and Collections:

 

My Badges:

 

I will try harder next time! Let’s keep our fingers crossed, Ravens! I’m still hoping for a miracle however far-fetched it may seem.

The Anticipated House Cup Awarding   Leave a comment

How time flies!

It was just a few months ago that the Chamber of Secrets opened and now it is almost time for the 2nd House Cup awarding already.  I feel a tad bit ashamed of myself because I wasn’t able to stick to my goal and I ended up with fewer points  than in Philosopher’s Stone.

Even if it’s already November 21st in my timezone, I’m sure that a lot of my fellow Ravenclaws are still brewing and dueling and I greatly apologize for the little help I was able to contribute.  I will definitely duel some more before the time runs out.  Unfortunately, I can hardly brew anymore since the changes were applied.  I’m not sure if my laptop is just glitch-y or I’m just really having a hard time controlling the temperature.  After burning my cauldron thrice, I’ve been traumatized to try again.  Maybe I could be safe with some Cure for Boils even if the points are low.  I’d never been able to brew the Sleeping Potion again.

I’m hoping against hope that a miracle would happen and we won’t end up in the last position.  As it said in our Common Room Board:

Fighting!

The Inaugural Pottermore House Cup   1 comment

The Winner of the Inaugural Pottermore House Cup

Congratulations to Slytherin House for winning the very first Pottermore House Cup.  Second Place belonged to Gryffindor.  And we, Ravenclaws, are in Third Place.  Hufflepuff is in the 4th position.  House points are now reset and we start from the beginning.  Amazing how in such a short amount of time, the scores has gone up to almost 10,000 points.  If only I didn’t have to work, I would have loved to start brewing and dueling right away as well.

Anyway, it has been almost a year since the Pottermore Beta Family started and it was indeed a much awaited event.  Though I’m sad we lost our standing when we first began, I have to applaud the Slytherin house for they deserved it.

I am not quite satisfied with my contribution and so I’m putting up a resolution to allot at least one hour of each day to brewing at least one potion and dueling while at it.  That should be enough for me to at least make 100 points in a weekday.  More on weekends, hopefully.  So that next time, win or lose, I can be prouder of myself and be a credit to my house.

Now, if only Chamber of Secrets would be opened.  That would be perfect.  Anytime now, Pottermore.  Please.

Waiting for the House Cup Winner   1 comment

The day has come, July 5th, although, the announcement has yet to be made.  I am unsure what time zone the winner would be announced but a thick air of tension has been hanging in the air.

One of the concerns almost everyone is concerned about is if Pottermore would pull a Dumbledore.  For those who did not read the books or watched the films, that means the win would be defaulted to Gryffindor.  Second concern is the house points.  Will the points reset or are the points going to be carried over?  Though, in my opinion, it seems more logical for the points to be reset to have an equal footing with everyone at the start of Chamber of Secrets.   However, at the same time, it would feel like losing something important since those points were hard earned by each and every one.

Since these questions can only be answered once the House Cup is awarded, I decided that just in case the points are reset, I would like to keep a memory of my them and my achievements.  A small contribution they may be, but it was a memorable one.  All those sleepless days earning points at the height of the beta testing period, getting frustrated when Pottermore goes into maintenance and you have a potion brewing, dueling for the first time… all these were a memory associated with my house points.

So here are my final scores and the potions I brewed:

My House Points

My final duel challenge before the House Cup. I was lucky because I rarely get a score this high. Thank goodness it was my last and I get to record it.

All the potions I brewed. Some of which I have gifted.

 

Now, I think I am ready for the awarding of the House Cup.  I have preserved them in my memory so I think I can move on.

Pottermore, anytime now is good.  🙂
