    I think it only asks for a preference between two if your answers result in a tie (or close result) -between 2 houses. I wasn't given a choice. my daughter was- (Hufflepuff or Gryffindor- she picked Gryffindor)

    Probably a dumb question, but do you have to be online at the same time to duel?

    That's because he stuck to, "We are great" and left out the "Why everyone else sucks" snark.

    I wonder if anyone was asked to choose between Slytherin and Hufflepuff.

    I think I need to practice a bit more before I duel you anymore... :p My self-esteem is taking a beating. But at least I did get that one win in.

    Nope. It shows up in your notifications next time you log in.

    Pottermore is weird on my iPhone. Keeps kicking me off and asking to sign back in. I better wait until I have computer access. I did friend everyone who requested though. :)

    So I don't have to worry about everybody being in bed when I want to duel. Excellent. :) I've already had somebody challenge me to a duel, I'll accept the challenge tonight. :)

    I'm up for dueling if you want to (PumpkinNewt5946)...I kinda suck at it right now!:lol: I think I've won one out of close to 10-15 duels so far:slinkaway. I need to practice a bit...but it's still fun!

    I want to win a few to give Hufflepuff some points. We're in last place...:(

    I have literally been on this site all day long! It's going to be really difficult to get stuff done now! All I'll want to do is making potions and get my butt kicked at dueling all day! :rollin:

    I stopped at the end of Chapter 10. From what I understand only the first book is available at this time so I figure I better not rush through it in one day...probably by the end of the week though. ;)

    I like how the Slytherin welcome letter offers you some consolation by informing you that Merlin, in fact, was a Slytherin.

    The irony is that if you genuinely find this to be a plus, you probably belong in Slytherin.

    Ravenclaw. Drat I knew I should have chosen the left and dusk and probably that stupid drum. Oh, well. I'm unsuccessfully trying to make that potion. Dropping those snake fangs just right is a PITA and I don't know where my wand is to wave around. I'll probably spend the rest of the night until I figure it out.

    I choose the left but I don't remember the dusk or the drum. Can you remind me of the other choices?

    Your wand is on the right side of the table, behind your ingredients. Just click on it and it'll wave by itself.

    I just blew up my cauldron. :lol: I did pretty well with the boil cure, so I tried the awakening potion. I couldn't keep the bottle of dried billywig stings upright and I spilled the whoooolllle thing all over the counter. Now I'm out a cauldron and 5 house points. uuhhh.... sorry Slytherin!!

    Thanks. I chose dawn, then. I'm not sure why since I'm not a big fan of mornings. Probably becaue it means the potential arrival of the sun and I'm about sick to death of clouds. :mad:

    I don't remember a dawn and dusk, but I did have a moon or stars. I chose stars.. the moon is just right there, how boring. :lol:

    same thing happened to me with trying to keep the bottle upright. I think that if you grab it at the top you can control it a little bit better.

    I'm a Gryffindor, which surprised me, as I consider myself to not be terribly brave at all. It was the least likely house, I thought, before at least :p

    DawnGold8325, by the way :)

    It follows the pace of the story so once Harry goes to Diagon Alley and gets his wand, then you will too. The same for the Sorting Ceremony.
     
    IceAlisa and (deleted member) like this.

    Thanks! Got my wand: ELM WITH PHOENIX FEATHER CORE, ELEVEN INCHES, UNYIELDING

    Sounds awfully close to Voldemort's (although I think his was yew). I think I am headed for Slytherin. :drama:

    There are only three choices for cores -- phoenix, unicorn, and I can't remember the third -- but the description for elm is lovely:

    CRAP!

    "Sorry, you failed to keep the temperature within range. You will need to buy another cauldron from Diagon Alley. Your cauldron has been removed from your Potions collection and you have also lost 5 house points."

    :eek:

    Also, is AsphodelMugwump61 an FSUer? I'm still working on inputting nicknames so hopefully I can keep track of who's who.

    I have now confirmed all my Pottermore friends as FSUers. I am going to request some more. :)


    Again, I am MidnightGlow21201 with a black cat avatar (I thought a black cat would go with my handle and I picked MidnightGlow because it was the easiest number combo to remember :shuffle:)
