So you have a favorite Philosopher's Stone-centric fic or art to share with us?

Where are you in the reading. You have one day to finish the book. (Is anyone beside me actually doing this?)

How well do you think the movie holds up to the first book? Any scenes missing or anything strange added? Anything you would change?

As you were reading, did you see any missing scenes or anything that inspired you to want to read or write a drabble? Perhaps there was an image you wanted to see immortalized in an icon or banner? Post prompt suggestions for all of The Philosopher's Stone in this post's comments.

There's also a check-in thread so you can share where you are!

This is the place to record your reactions as you read with gifs, or to post great movie gifs from Sorcerer's Stone since this is the only week we will be on this book.

So what's the deal? We are going to read Harry Potter and we're going to do it by the end of the term. In order to complete this, we need to read 17 chapters a week. details, schedule, & faqCollapse )

SO TO GET US STARTED:
- WHAT VERSION/FORMAT ARE YOU PLANNING TO REREAD?
- WHAT IS YOUR DEVICE OF CHOICE?
- WHERE/WHEN DO YOU USUALLY DO YOUR DAILY READING?
- QUESTIONS/COMMENTS/SUGGESTIONS?


Tomorrow I will make another post, so this will be our "daily post" week to try out this format.

Sadly, it was that time of term where inactive people had to be cut. If your name is not on this list, you've been one of the people cut from the community.

If your name was cut by accident or you want to come back, please comment on this post to let us know!

Fare thee well, lions of the past.

The Term XXIX members cut has been made. Alas, earwax.

If you cannot see this post, you have obviously had a Neville moment and lost all of our passwords and are thus forced to wonder aimlessly in the halls outside of the Gryffindor Common Room until you waste away from lack of capslock, sparkles, and gifs.

BUT NEVER FEAR, if you think you have been removed in error or you'd like to remain a lion (ONCE A LION, ALWAYS A LION!), then please head on over here, let us know, and we'll let you back in!!

FREE FOR ALL FRIDAY



1 ♥ The coummuinuty rules and ratings of HiH still apply here
2 ♥ If you are unsure of what is acceptable just PM/email myself (xonceinadream)
3 ♥ Please limit GIFs & images to no more than 5 per comment
4 ♥ There is no limit to the number of times you comment. The more times the better ♥
5 ♥ Please come and play with us! The more the merrier!
6 ♥ Idea taken from Liz (erzsebet) /Steph (alwaysawkward) /Jess (rhye) who took it from ONTD



So the very idea of a Free for All Friday is to have it be a free for all but, to get you all started, we're going to be playing a game of 'Would You Rather?' You don't need to actually have a 'Would You Rather?' just ask people to choose between two things. Coke or Pepsi? Harry or Ron? Whatever you'd like to ask and go ahead and respond to people. If you don't feel like playing, feel free to talk about whatever you'd like to!

The member cut for Term XXVIII has been carried out (AND IT MAKES ME SAD TO SEE LIONS GO).

If you cannot see this post then you have been cut from gryff_lions and hogwartsishome.

If you'd like to rejoin you can comment on Gryffindor's leaving/returning post (conveniently located on our profile page if you need it!) or you can be re-sorted at platform_934 in two months (so it's easier to just come back to us *evil laughter here*).

If you feel you've been removed in error, you can post here (comments will be screened), contact gryff_prefects or email us at hihgryffprefect@gmail.com.

(All right, this is just a flimsy excuse to get some travel advice, but I thought it'd be fun to open it up to anyone else who might be planning their winter vacations! :D)

So guess what's happening in November? I'm traveling to NEW ZEALAND!! Yes, the Land of the Hobbits!






I figured with so many of us here, someone's bound to have gone to New Zealand before (or had a colleague or friend come back from a vacation and gush all about it), so I thought I'd ask: In your opinion, what are some things you have to do in New Zealand? Things to eat, things to see? I'll probably be going to South Island, but North Island tips are welcome too in the event that I manage to extend my stay! :D

And for anyone who might be looking for tips on travel destinations, feel free to hijack this thread to ask about it or just offer general good travel advice!



P/S: Prefectses, may I open this post up as a FFAF? :D
