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.

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!

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.  🙂

 

Ravenclaws for the Cup   2 comments

For the past several weeks, Ravenclaws and Slytherins have been constantly vying for the number one position in the bid for the House Cup.  Last week, I’ve spent several hours to boost my 145 house points to 260.  But it was a long weekend.  Unfortunately, I had to work on weekdays and I can only brew 3-4 potions in a day.  Yesterday, I was only able to brew 2 potions as my eyes are literally closing in on me.  I’ve been so sleepy at work and would not be surprised if I get reprimanded one of these days for a sloppy work done.

Yesterday, we were still leading by 40 points at least.  Now, however, we’re 5 points behind as of this writing.  It has been a never-ending struggle.  It makes it a lot more fun and challenging, though sometimes, I really wish we can get a good lead where we can’t be outrun just to get some rest.

Anyway, the weekend is here and I will definitely be helping out my house.  I’m gonna be brewing non-stop.  Or at least, until I can no longer move a muscle.  I currently have 290 house points and a potion is currently brewing at 87%.  My target is to reach 400 house points before this weekend comes to end.  I really want to reach at least Top 100.  Not necessarily the Top 20.  But somewhere in Top 100 would make me content.  So right now, I’m at the 700th position.  Still a long way to go. Oooh! I can hear the bell ringing!  My potion should be done!
