Yes, that was a horrible pun. BUT XED, I hear you scream, WHY ARE YOU MAKING HORRIBLE HARRY POTTER JOKES?!

Permit me to answer you, my overly excited reader, with a picture:

Xed mentioned getting your sorting results from Pottermore earlier this week, but I'm here to take it a bit further. In addition to getting sorted into your house, find out which wand picks you and what your patronus is. Even a harry potter noob like myself had a bit of fun with this.

Then, I challenge you to design and wear a costume to Friday's shindig that creatively expresses one or more elements of the results of your wand ceremony, patronus discovery, or sorting ceremony. Most creative efforts as voted by the Port Luna Live staff and participants will each earn a prize!

Check back tomorrow for the release of the writing challenge!

For tonight’s Harry Potter event there will be a few different contests going on to earn your house points and win the house cup. One of these is a writing contest. To give anyone who wants to participate a little more time to work on some writing we’re putting up the prompt now, we hope you all enjoy and look forward to see what you come up with.

“Congratulations! You have been accepted into the infamous wizard party school KRKN Wizarding Academy. Your magical learning my be half assed and your study time will be non-existent but the booze you taste and parties you attend will be second to none. Don’t worry the people you meet and social connections you make will take you just as far if not much much further than any actual learning.”

Describe your first experience upon walking onto the KRKN Wizarding Academy, The Opening Feast and Speech, or any other strange experience at the school. Write something interesting, funny, or whatever pops into your head, most of all have fun with it!
