Aw bro, you took a one-eyed dog? What is wrong with you? This replacement doesn't act anything like him either. You're pretty much the suck as far as copies goes. What did you do? Use these poor fairies to death and then just decide they'd be good family member replacements?

With everything happening in town, and the recent departures, we've decided to forgo a party for Helena's birthday. We made this decision not long after my Uncle Percy left but hadn't discussed it publicly.

All of that being said, if anyone would like to join us tomorrow at Rapax Races, I can promise that there will be cake and go-karts. Helena has seemed to have a nice birthday this evening but I do hope that wherever my Aunt Luna is now, she enjoyed whichever birthday milestone she reached yesterday in good company and with plenty of joy.

I can't find Stella anywhere so add her to the list of missing pets.

I must have broken a mirror or stepped under a ladder or something, this day is awful. I've run into things, banged into things, dropped things, cut things, lost things and at this point, I think I'm just safer if I stay in bed.


And I just broke my telly.

Since we got a head's up and everything from the portal about our next cruise, Hermione and I were wondering about some protective wards for our sprog. Figure two kinds of magic are better than one, and maybe you have more experience with personal wards? Our protective enchantments are more for places, not people.


Private to Ron

I think we ought to have a plan in place for this cruise now that we have Rose. I know we can’t plan for everything, but I think it’s important to have something together.

Also, she’s been asking about a baby. I’ll let you handle that one.

I hate that this is a statement that seems to be getting repetitive as days go by, but if any of you need anything, please don't hesitate to reach out here at the Burrow. Whether its to talk or be distracted by a one-year-old.

For the time being, I've decided to postpone my trip to Kent.

I wanted to let you all know that this year, for my birthday, I was hoping to take a visit to Kent. Ginny will be coming with me. I know Ottery St. Catchpole isn't in the area here, but I figured it was time for a visit in the UK here. It's a good way to use the money given by the portal!

I will not say no to anyone who wants to join, of course. I will most likely be gone from 4 February and will be back 10 February.

I have begun to notice that when Rosie is quiet that it’s too quiet. It is never good when the noises suddenly stop. How do people get anything done?? This is exhausting.

So, Hermione and I are having a baby. And oh, guess what? She's here, and she's three. Say hi to Rose Weasley. Weasley-Granger? Granger-Weasley? Something of the Weasley and/or Granger variety.

Gifts, well-wishes, babysitting commitments, and a clue as to what the hell we're doing accepted.

Being from the wizarding world, I’m used to seeing owls. It’s a natural thing. But since coming to tumbleweed, there hasn’t been an over abundance of owls in my daily life. While I appreciate the owls, I do think there’s such a thing as too much of a good thing. In fact, I think it’s a bit excessive now. I never knew there were so many owl things out there. I would greatly appreciate no more owls. Honestly, if I didn’t know better, I would think someone was playing a very poor prank.

Jan. 5th, 2020


We could always use another pair of hands at the shop, yeah? Give us a break from manning the register all day? Someone to test product ideas on?

Still wanna work in a magical joke shop?

I'm curious to know whose hiring around here? I keep putting it off but I really ought to find work. I'm not sure what's around for someone who spent about a year traveling around time and space meeting aliens.

Maybe I should think about going back to sch-

It seems that despite my best efforts to stay as healthy as possible a cold has managed to sneak in uninvited. It is most inconvenient at this time. There's far too much to do to worry about being sick. I simply don't have time for this.

[Weasley crew]
Fred and I are going to host Christmas over at our place this year. I'm not sure if you guys want Christmas Eve dinner, Christmas brunch/lunch/dinner. So let us know and we'll make it work.

Nov. 28th, 2019


The months seem to feel as though they’re moving quicker and quicker. I’m excited, though, to start planning Christmas things. My list is already quite long.

Right! I am going to break this so quick. But it understands me, which is quite lovely!

Tonks is me. I'm new! Old? New-old.

Since there seems to be another round of weather concerns, Weasley's Wizard Wheezes sells Weasley's wearable weather, a line of jewelry that encases you in climate-controlled bubble. In case you don't want 30 degree weather in the lead-up to Halloween!

[Filtered to WWW]
Which on that note, we need to start talking our Halloween plans.

Enchanted masks seem like they might be less popular after this last month. Because people have no sense of fun.

Birthdays here are very odd.

And most days, I wish there were more hours in the day.

A good many of you came to Ben's aid last night. For that, you have my thanks, which is something I rarely give out.

Of course, thanks is hardly any currency you can spend, nor is it anything much more than a warm fuzzy feeling in the end. Thor, you offered to throw a feast if given the (limited) funds to do so. I think one is in order. If not because Ben and I are set to wed in the near future, then because we got him back safely.

Event: Unseelie Court Ball

WHO: The Displaced and a bunch of fairies.
WHEN: From midnight until 6am. Technically early Sunday morning.
WHERE: Another dimension
WHAT: The Unseelie Court invites you to a ball. (Make sure to tag your characters as you add them). Masks arrived shortly after the Abducted were taken the prior night.

Welcome, welcome! )

Anyone else have a Rockruff? I finally worked out a spell to dull the rocks or whatever around their necks. No more cuts or scrapes whenever they feel like being affectionate.

What's this I heard about you quitting your Quidditch team?

Sep. 4th, 2018


This was the best. Kinda reminded me of home, you know? Jan I figured you might want these for your insta. Haha. They should do this every day.

Weasley Wizards Wheezes is hiring for product development and shop work. Experience with muggles and muggle technology preferred. Magic is optional.

Those interested bring ideas for adaptation of cartoon products from a few weeks back. There is also a prank component to the interview.

I've spent the last hour reading through this new network and it has yielded few satisfying answers. Why on Earth am I in Texas? If this is another ploy against Muggleborns

Aug. 25th, 2018


I've been trying to reach George and Angelina for the past hour. I've rang them at least a dozen times. Have any of you heard from them in that time stretch?

Uncles, do you know the precise location of where they are staying on their holiday? Can you get to them?There were four beeps.

I am in a bit of a panic. I haven't had a chance to scour the network. Has anyone claimed two of those beeps? Either on the network or have you heard anything at the Bureau?

My cousins were two of them. I can't reach their parents.

May I ask a favor?


I had a very nice time at the party last night. Thank you for letting me come. I hope everyone is feeling okay this morning.


Happy Friday, what's everyone listening to? I've got this classic banger on.

Did you know that on this day in 1776, the British landed in Rhode Island, hoping to capture New York City?

This team is going to be great! Go team red!! I vote for keeping the red as our team color.

I'd like to go ahead and nominate Pidge for captain, because she's amazing at flying and strategy and leadership. I'm not at all biased, it's totally true.

And anyone got suggestions for team names?

Anyone else just a little disappointed they missed out on this one?

Aug. 15th, 2018


Alright, so I have an anniversary with Angie coming up next week, so I'm going to need you two to mind the shop while we're gone for a week. We're going to ask Dad to look after the kids, but look in on them while we're gone, yeah?

It'll be all of next week, we're going to leave Saturday night.

And then when we come back, we need to talk about the all out prank war we're going to implement to find our newest Muggle employee.

It's hot, but I like August.

I decided that I should probably tell you all that Albus has asked if he can adopt me officially.

I thought that sounded pretty fantastic. So I agreed.

Do you have any plans for the weekend? I got us on the guest list for a library that's a little more your speed than the Tumbleweed Public Library.


[Family & friends of Harry Potter, but not Harry]
I figured we might as well all discuss what we're doing for Harry's birthday since it wouldn't really do to plan things and hope everyone else isn't planning something at the same time.

Now, he's never really had a party so much considering things being the way they were, so I'd like to do something with a cake. Lily, would you like to help me make the cake? If anyone else would like to help with the food, I have a list of things I already know he likes, so we can work with that. I'm not sure the party should be an 'everyone arrives and there's a party' thing. Just something with friends and family.

Remus, I think we can manage to set something up in the backyard. If anyone has any suggestions, I suppose it has been a while since I've thrown a birthday party for a teenager or any other aged child.

Jul. 23rd, 2018


Okay, so I can appreciate how clingy you guys are being right now, I do have to go see a lady for a commission she hired me for a few months ago. Am I going to this meeting alone or are there going to be two shadows following me?

Also, my friend Ron wants to let us give his nerdy girlfriend a tour of the place. Are you guys okay with letting them come by at some point? I'll just keep it to the superficial levels.

Thanks to everyone that came to look for me yesterday! Henry's nose sniffed me out - I had gotten trapped in an artifact. All good now!

Attention portal-napped members of Tumbleweed.

Team America House is having a BBQ on Sunday. Some of you may know that we all came from a previous alternate reality where we were taken through a portal to Hawaii. As such, a couple of us have become obsessed with Kālua. Cooking in an underground oven. On the menu: pig. Don't worry, there will be vegetarian options on regular BBQ too.

Come join us Sunday at 1pm at our house for eats, and watch Bucky work his cooking skills.

There will be lots of food and music, so if you're free, come stop by!

Blackpoint people, this is non-optional for you unless you have to work or experience some sort of life crisis. Or you're Henry, because I know I can't win that fight.

While I won't say it's actually Butterbeer, the attempt they have at the theme parks isn't half bad. I thought the pumpkin juice was far closer to my memory of home. The best food they had was easily the cornish pasties. I had three helpings of those during the one day we were at Universal. And is it sacrilege to say that I enjoyed the Jurassic Park section the most in Universal? Helena had us ride the water ride a good four times. Not that I was complaining.

As for Disney, I'm really thankful we were in Animal Kingdom the day Hollywood Studios ran into all their issues. I don't want to know how it would have went over if I had to explain why we couldn't enjoy Toy Story Land. That being said, Toy Story Land was sort of brilliant.

This, however, was my favorite part.

Think you lot can handle the shop for a couple days? I know business has been up with all the Muggle tourists and everything, but I want to take Hermione on a trip.

Did I miss something? This town seems to be teeming with more Muggles than usual. Weird ones too, by the looks of it.

Did other me ever teach you to play Wizard Chess?

Good news for this Monday. The Oldsmobile Coup I had been working on is finally up and running! Needed a few magical tweaks to it to make sure it was efficient enough to run a while, but it's all set. I've already driven it into the main part of this town and it seems that it's caught everyone's eye; saw many staring when I got out!

I will be glad to take any of my nearest and dearest for a ride if any of them so wish!

Good news, everyone, my EMERGENCY DONUT has been found!!!

It's an EMERGENCY donut because you break the seal only in case of emergency. And it's vacuum sealed to preserve freshness because my best friend told me being in "air" makes things "stale" and we paid WAY too much for this to let it go stale.

So, since I'm now a happily married man and that means going splitsies on absolutely everything with my smokin' hot wife: Amy, will you do me the honor of sharing this donut with me?

The heat is unbearable here. It's as if the sun is angry with us.

Is the sun angry with us? Did any of you do something to it?

Should I create thunderstorms? The clouds they bring will give us relief. I'll keep them going for the next few days or until one of the Ororos makes me stop.

So it's hot as bluebell flames here, isn't it? From what I've heard, it gets even worse in August.

LUCKILY, Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes has you covered. From our backroom magical line, we'd like to introduce WEASLEYS' WEARABLE WEATHER--a fashionable thermochromic ring that detects the outside temperature and creates a magical microclimate around the wearer too keep them cool as a cucumber.
