By Nicole DiekerAugust 12, 2015
Who here doesn't wish they could write like John Green? If writers were rain, we'd drizzle out a few words ("IT WAS THE BEST OF PUG BUTTS") in the time it takes him to type up a hurricane. And then the hurricane would be turned... More  →

At Home With The Dementors

By Maddy WarnerAugust 12, 2015
Novels tend to focus on the big events, the Moments After Which Nothing Is The Same. But so much of life is lived in quiet routines, even for the fictional among us. When J.K. Rowling introduced us to Dementors, of course she would focus solely (soul-ly) on their most dramat More  →

Would You Rather... (We're On a Harry Potter Roll Here)

By ElodieAugust 11, 2015
Last week, we asked the age-old "BOOKS OR MOVIES?" question, and there was nary a lone dissenter amongst the ranks. It was the most unanimous decision since we as a society just universally decided to stop saying "ROFL." TODAY'S QUESTION, however, was inspired by a discuss More  →

Would You Rather... (This Could Either Be SUPER EASY or Devilishly Difficult)

By ElodieAugust 6, 2015
 It got all KINDS of profound with Monday's WYR question. Pretty much everyone said they'd rather be able to read minds than control them (except for two people; LOOKING AT YOU, WritingFire AND clarinets-are-awesome). But enough about which among us are budding supervil More  →

By Nicole DiekerAugust 5, 2015
If you had a galleon for every "What's Your Hogwarts House" quiz you took, you'd be filthy rich. But one can only take so many sorting hat quizzes before saying "SCREW IT—I'M A GRYFFINPUFF" and storming off to one's makeshift owlery. That's why we decided to bring somethin More  →
