    I'm a Hufflepuff! My wand is cypress with a phoenix feather core, 11 3/4", hard.

    Is anyone here named VineNox187, a Slytherin? They have sent me a friend request.

    I can't get those damn gnomes. Did a little better with the advice earlier in the thread and managed three on one try. Ugh. I've now informed my husband that I may make him try. Answer: "Now what is this again and why do you HAVE to do it?"

    Yep, that was me! I don't know how to link to specific messages, but back on page 21 of this thread, there's a list of all the FSU Pottermore players.

    PDilemma, Kruss' advice worked really well for me. Once I tried it, the gnomes flew. Just make sure the gnomes face the hedge when you let go.

    I can't pick up the mask; I can get to the "hooray you found a mask!" but it won't let me click on "collect".

    The site on a whole is running extremely slowly right now. I'll have to wait until I can get back to the US and play on a reliable internet connection

    IceAlisa, The Pottermore Guide has been updated. That has a full list of collectables.

    So I went book shopping and only got Standard Book of Spells, Grade 2 but am not feeling all these expensive Gilderoy Lockhart books.

    PDilemma and IceAlisa, so glad it worked for you.
    Give me one more quiet night, before this loud morning gets it right, and does me in.

    Thank you for the hints. I never would have got past that in my life without it! Quite unskilled at things like that.

    Me too, if it weren't for Kruss, I'd still be trying to throw gnomes and . Thanks again!

    Any word when Ch. 5 will be available? I can't wait to brew new potions, provided book 2 gives us potions to brew--I think Polyjuice is definitely warranted. I just hope it doesn't take a whole actual month to brew it.

    As is probably shocking to NO ONE, I am a proud Slytherin. Sssssssssssss.

    I'm a horrible Slytherin; I can't make the cure for boils. Course, I am a Slytherin, so I should be more about the giving of curses than taking them away. I need help from some goody two-shoes Hufflepuff.

    I'm AccioDawn28899 My wand is a Dogwood with a Phoenix Feather and "surprisingly swishy." Why, yes, I did giggle like a seventh grade boy.

    Not only do they release too soon, they LAUGH at you. I'll show them. I'm a pureblood. Well, OK, I'll make baseless threats and hope some random Death Eater will back them up, but I'll sneer really, really hard. Or make a potion. I've only broken one cauldron today.

    This is why I can't play video games. I'm too invested. I'm trying to sneak playing this at work. Do you know how hard it is to de-gnome while writing a press release?

    The gnomes laugh? I thought they kind of sink listlessly into the pond. You've come a long way, Matry, in such a short time. You've just been sorted and you are already de-gnoming!

    I am MidnightGlow21201, btw.
