Hello! How many of you use Discord? I was chatting to some friends on a private channel tonight, and my thoughts drifted to this comm. It might be a nice way to keep in touch with some friends here over the years, or make new ones. 

Anyways, I was wondering if there were HIHers who wanted to chat on the regular. Maybe we could swap usernames in the comments or via a PM? 

Maybe we could even start a server if there's a group of us.

And if I'm the only one, you'll just have to excuse my awkwardness. Ha.

Way back in the day, I had a Flourish shop and used Gimp for my graphics. The version I have on my computer got a bit wonky and now displays all text in Hebrew, which I can't read.

As I'm now a grown-up with a job, I sprung for Photoshop with the goal of laying the ground work this term to have a new Flourish shop next term.

Where are some good tutorials to help me get up to speed with Photoshop and polish up my graphics making skills?

Anyone playing Hogwarts Mystery? I just got into it I think two weeks ago and I just got SUCKED in. It'd be cool to chat about it with someone.

Hey, all! Super random question. Does anyone have an awesome hot chocolate recipe they don't mind sharing? (I know, I know.. I can Google. ;) In between the cold and some early Christmas shopping, I'm really craving some right now and want to try something different!

(I'm also curious what the best hot chocolate brand is out there too. Trying to find some Ghirardelli hot chocolate tins, because I know their chocolate is awesome, but not having much luck.)

If you're on my flist, you might be seeing this post twice.

I need someone not from the United States to help me out with something.

I am taking an Intercultural Communication class this term, and I need a pen pal from another country. This would be done through e-mail, and I will need to e-mail you at least 4 times from now until the beginning of December. I tried to use the instructor's suggested pen-pal-finding site but immediately was spammed with creepy DM's as soon as I joined the site. So, NO THANKS to that.

If you're interested in helping me out, you can comment or send me a PM. I'll update this post once I have someone lined up!

Thanks to Nat and Avi!

So, long story short - I lost my account information on Pottermore, and decided to rejoin.

I was sorted Slytherin.

I can now say I've been sorted into every house through here and on Pottermore combined.

Have you guys ever been sorted somewhere surprising?

So this is a headliner on ONTD today:

J.K. Rowling just coined a Harry Potter version of 'splaining'

You guys know StarKid, right?

(I mean, if you somehow don't know what I'm talking about, I totally envy the YouTube trip you are about to go on, but that's neither here nor there).

They're Kickstarting a new comedy musical (horror). It will be funded in a couple days, but there's exclusive content for backers and the last two times they funded shows on kickstarter, as well as when the Tin Can Brothers (Joey Richter, Brosenthal, & Corey L) kickstarted shows, the stretch goals came with fun YouTube videos and livestreams. But seriously if you donate even $1 you get exclusive content videos starting with the kickstarter vid blooper reel in which Jamie Lyn Beatty digs through trash for some reason.

So donate, and enjoy. (And if you haven't watch StarKid shows, or you have only watched the Harry Potter ones, do yourself a favor and set aside a few evenings to watch the rest!)

I'm re-reading the series this summer, and my 8-year old is now obsessed with sorting - Disney characters, (non HP) book characters, etc., and our own family. Among the four of us, we've got all four houses represented, and a pair of Ravenclaw and Gryffindor cats.

What about you? What colors would be your family's Hogwarts banners? Are you like the Weasleys - everyone in the same house - or are you a colorful combination of personalities and aptitudes?

Hi everyone!

Just wondering if anyone has happened to play Harry Potter: Hogwarts Battle and what their thoughts on it are.

For those who are confused, Harry Potter: Hogwarts Battle is a deckbuilding card game based on the Harry Potter series where you can play as one of the Golden Trio or Neville.

I’m really huge into board games and this game seems really neat, plus it’s Harry Potter so you can’t go wrong.
