Currently listening to: I’ll Be – Edwin McCain
I wish I could figure out my life as easily as I [assume I] can figure out plots for VH. I can’t speak for everyone of course, but I feel as though that’s something many of us can relate to, and it points to the allure of the “escape” aspect of this site. Your life can be a mess around you, with mountains of problems behind the screen moving in on your personal space, but you can hop online and take control o
I joined VH in 2003. I was young. I was stupid. I had a lot of growing up to do. I made mistakes. I corrected them. I fell in love with the people, and I made friends that I continue to love to this day. Lifetime kinds of friends. I wish that on every VHer.
Some of those friends were involved in various dramas throughout the years, but I somehow managed to never get involved, never hear about it, or hear about it years after the fact (in which the Surprised Pi
Witches, are you ready for this?

EVERYBODY KNOWS AND NO ONE CARES
I think people sometimes make the mistake of assuming that everything they hear about is fairly common knowledge.
For example, everybody knows that...
Professor Littlefinger tortures students
It's okay to roleplay ________ even though its against the rules, because Euron Greyjoy does it all the time
Daenerys Targaryen is a mod favorite and therefore immune to punishment even though she keeps setting people on fire
The Ministry of Magic's Department of Magical Law Enforcement confirmed reports today that the village of Bradwriaeth, Wales, suffered a similar attack to that Gwaed, where dozens seemingly lost their ability to perform even the most basic magic.
However, while villagers in Gwaed regained their abilities within the span of three days, it has been a week and a half since villagers in Bradwriaeth were attacked, and their magic shows no signs of returning.

Just weeks after several inmates were discovered missing from Azkaban following a break in, Desdemona Warrick, the 32-year-old witch who had been imprisoned for murder ten years ago and recently on the run has been found dead in Cork county, Ireland. The injuries sustained by Warrick were those of werewolf origin and indicate a struggle, however the motive is unclear as of now.
Authorities are investigating clues found on the scene which may in fact be linked to Dominique Melfire and Picu

In the early evening hours of August 30th, 2042 Aurors stationed at Azkaban responded to an alert on the North side of the facility. As guards arrived on the scene, it was discovered that a small fraction of the prison's protective wards had been disrupted from the outside. Aurors investigated the surrounding areas and found no other trace of evidence supporting an intrusion, however it was discovered during the nightly inspection that four inmates were unaccounted for.
On August 30, Thaddeus Roseclaw, the head of SNARLL at the Taith Coch Werewolf Reserve, received the Philosopher's Award from the Society of Merlin for his research expanding on the dragon pox cure, first created by Gunhilda of Gorsemoor in 1437. Other notable wizards who have worked on the cure include Albus Dumbledore.
The Philosopher's Award is given to the individual that the Society of Merlin feels has contributed the most to the fields of herbology, healing, or magizoology wit
The Hogwarts Board of Governors released a statement earlier today outlining some of the expected activities for the 40th anniversary of Hogwarts's rebuilding after the Battle of Hogwarts during the Second Wizarding War.
"We are looking forward to welcoming alumni back to Hogwarts on the occasion of this special anniversary. We are currently in the process of sending out invitations to alumni who would like to participate in the Career Week that we are planning for the beginning of t
AP: Good afternoon wolves! This is the Daily Bark, and I'm your host, Ambrose Pemberton! Some upsetting news today--M.U.D., a muggleborn society focused on promoting the rights of muggleborn witches and wizards, has chosen to ban any muggleborns who may also be werewolves from joining the group. There is speculation that this move was taken specifically to discourage the families of @Julian Pritchard and @Prince A. Charming from joining. Obviously this is a terrible development--being a werewolf
LL: This is Lana Lumos with your five-minute pop culture news! As you know listener, next year will be the fortieth anniversary of Hogwarts’s rebuilding.

In an incredible upset, Montrose Magpies storm to the top of the league in the final match of the season after delivering a humiliating defeat to newcomers the Otley Outsiders.
The Otley Outsiders, newly promoted to the league after their spectacular showing in the amateur leagues, have been battling hard against tough teams and tougher criticism all year. Stars have been made out of their level-headed werewolf Chaser and Captain, Lyall Channing and half-Veela Seeker Poppy Atwood, w
IK: We have breaking news this evening. Reginald Kneen, the President of WizFirst Bank, has been found dead. A contact in the Auror Office has informed WWN that death threats against Kneen, who reportedly had anti-goblin views, were previously investigated and determined to not be credible.
Godric Grimble, a goblin who works in Gringotts’s Office of Asset Developments, has been arrested by aurors in connection with Kneen’s death. Grimble and his attorney have not yet released a full
CG: Good morning, this is Chad Goldleaf with the news. The Office of the Minister announced this morning that Minister Granger-Weasley will be appearing at Hogwarts in the fall to kick off the celebrations for the anniversary of Hogwarts’s rebuilding.

IK: This is Isla Kelly with your evening news. Protests have erupted in Paris since the arrest of Elisa Papillon, a veela who was a person of interest in the fires that engulfed Beauxbatons’s grounds two years ago, for the murder of Marguerite Millefeuille, the Headmistress of the school.
Veela advocacy groups in France are decrying the decision to arrest Corteaux, claiming that she has an airtight alibi. However, officials from France’s ministry have issued a statement that include
Since Lorcan d’Eath, part-vampire and singer with a career that spans decades, made a statement in support of the werewolves of Taith Coch who were responsible for the attack on Hogwarts, noted conservative activists Michael and Insley Jacobin have sought to start a boycott of his concerts.
“Gwyn Hughes was nothing short of a monster who chose to attack children for the purpose of turning them into werewolves,” the joint statement from the Jacobins’ read. “We encourage everyone to b
IK: Good evening, this is Isla Kelly. An earlier story that was presented by WWN News stated that Caster Williams, the suspected Hogwarts vandal, is half-giant. That was incorrect. In fact, Williams has no part-human ancestry. Thank you for listening as we continue to bring you the latest information on this story.
The Falmouth Falcons are in trouble again after gameplay was halted for two hours during their match against the Wimbourne Wasps last Friday after their captain, ex-Slytherin Charles Cavill, punched the game's head official in the face, breaking his nose.
"Well, he wasn't being much use on the pitch anyway," Cavill told reporters outside the stadium. "Swindells blagged my Seeker right in front of him and he didn't even notice. Swindells should have gotten a yellow card for that at le
CG: This is Chad Goldleaf, reporting this morning that the individual responsible for a series of disturbing vandalism incidents that Hogwarts has been apprehended by the Department of Magical Law Enforcement.
The individual responsible, Caster Williams, an office clerk for the Werewolf Capture Unit, reportedly used a high-level spell that attached itself to Hogwarts’s wards, allowing him to perpetrate his crimes from a distance. Williams, who is half-giant, lost several family memb
Early in the evening on April 8th, London native Josephine Ricketts found herself being accosted by a young woman brandishing a wand.
“She told me to hand over all my galleons or she would leave me stupefied in the street,” said Ricketts, age 127, who had her hands full of groceries at the time. “I nearly dropped my eggs! My tomatoes rolled right out of my bag.”
Lucky for Josephine, a large cat suddenly leapt to her rescue, clawing the thief in the face and on the shoulde
Eva Picardy, granddaughter of Emerett Picardy, announced today that she would be producing an updated version of his famous book Lupine Lawlessness. “It’s clear that we need my grandfather’s work now, more than ever,” she said in a statement.
Emerett Picardy’s work is known for its erroneous conclusion that werewolves lose their sense of morality while in human form.
Research into lycanthropy has long been full of incorrect conclusions, but Picardy’s stands out for its s

The more Kay had read about Trudy and listened to her show, the more certain she'd become that the only way to change her mind would be to meet face-to-face. It was easy for someone to list names off a piece of paper, but maybe she'd reconsider some of the things she'd said if she could look one of them in the eyes and talk it out.
She didn't know if she thought Miss Veritas's imprisonment was 'unjust' or not, but she'd sure let her rant about it. Then maybe they could have a heart-t
Edward wasn’t sure, but he had heard his older sister bang on about this Trudy lady and he figured that she must have been a fan. He never made the connection that it was because this witch had leaked the names of innocent children. Plus a book was good, his sister liked reading and, if he won, she could have that for her birthday.
