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.

Jacobins Encourage Boycott of Lorcan D’Eath’s Concerts

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

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

Flourish & Blotts Refuses to Carry Picardy Book

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

November 8 Werewolf Attacker Spent Time in Azkaban

The Daily Prophet has received some important information this morning--one of the November 8 werewolf attackers, Vesper Frey, spent more than a decade in Azkaban after using the imperius curse on two wizards to force them to carry out crimes for her.   After Frey was released from Azkaban, she went to live at the Taith Coch Werewolf Reserve. Evidence from the Ministry’s report on the November 8 attack indicate that she was one of two werewolves that broke through the wards that surro

The Department of Magical Law Enforcement announced today that it had identified @Damian Wickham as a person of interest behind petitions that have been circulating around the wizarding community.

My name is Galen Ward and I am a werewolf. On the night of a full moon, I killed my sister because I failed to take the final dose of my Wolfsbane Potion.

OP-Ed: Werewolf Mania Seeks to Rip Hogwarts Apart

On the night of November 8, I was a flying assistant for the first year students. I was flying in the air, minding my own business and doing my duty as a flying assistant, when mayhem broke. I tried to get to safety, but I was dragged out of the sky when a werewolf jumped and clamped its maw onto my broom, violently throwing me to the ground. I sustained a broken arm as my body hit the cold hard ground of the Quidditch Pitch that November night, but nothing could’ve prepared me for the pain tha

On the evening of November 8, the lives of everyone at Hogwarts changed. The space in which many of us believed would be safe, that we called our second home, was tainted with the blood and the cries of victims. I do not believe I will ever be able to enter the Great Hall without hearing those cries--including the scream I also produced during the attack. You see, my name is Avery Potter, and I am a victim of the November 8th attacks. I attempted to pretend for many weeks that nothing had o

On the night of November 8, I was sitting in the rose garden on Hogwarts’s grounds with my girlfriend @Hatty Hambeldon.

I would have been bitten too, if Hatty hadn’t saved me.   Years ago, when I was in second year, I witnessed a Death Eater attack. I was only able to escape torture because I ran when I saw a pro
