"You might belong in Hufflepuff,

Where they are just and loyal,

Those patient Hufflepuffs are true,

And unafraid of toil"

Back because I promised I'd be!
BACK on Pottermore! It's shame Wizarding Duels is down for
maintenance. Anyway, it's great. You go through different chapters from
the first book (the other books aren't up yet) and from each you get a
collection of interactive images -- meaning you can zoom in on them, and
most importantly, click around to see what you find.
Example: I was clicking around on the second chapter, on the image
"The Cupboard Under the Stairs," when Harry's alarm clock lit up with
a purple aura and a little black tab, labeled "Collect," appeared. I clicked
on it and it was added to my trunk!
I also got an owl -- a Tawny owl, but I don't think I can name it. It's the
username for my avatar, though! And a wand, of course... I said I'd post
the details of my wand here, but I can't log into Pottermore, again, it's
because of a silly glitch.
From what I can remember, it should be:
10 and 3/4 inches, Slightly yielding, Silver Lime, Unicorn core.
Something like that!
You also get to brew potions which requires patience because it doesn't
always work, unfortunately, and you have to wait a while when it brews.
But all in all, I'm so glad to be on Pottermore -- I think I was among the
first batch that got sent in as Beta testers!
... AND I got let back in!
Here's my wand:
Length: 10 3/4 in
Wood: Silver Lime
Core: Unicorn
Flexibility: Slightly Yielding
Looks like I got it right! I know my wand, my lovelies. Oh yes...
