I've seen so many crazy concoctions on the Internet about homemade remedies in the form of drinks and herbs for diseases, that I'm tempted to actually come up with potions for those matters. Bad acne? I have a potion for you! Feeling lethargic? Have a 12-hour energy booster without the crash afterwards!

Except... more than half of those crazy remedies are not actually remedies when you start giving them to, say, kids with meningitis, and I'm wary that a business venture of this sort would get in the way of real healing/medicine.

Yay? Nay? Any advice would be good.

I love you all very much, and I hope I never have to see any of you disappear from this place.


If you were to name one place on Earth you'd like to visit, where would you go and what would you see?

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.

So how does one go about judging an alien beauty pageant?

Because I may have finally found a job worth doing.

My sister has disappeared. Rose Red, for those who knew her or were beginning to know her. I wish that I could say it gets easier, but it honestly gets more exhausting. It stops feeling like a joyous occasion when she comes back. I'll miss her, but perhaps she is better off in our world.

However, it leaves me in a bit of a bind. I have four shapeshifting children and one zephyr child, and I need child care during the daytime. I begin my day at 9am, but it can often go on beyond normal 9-5 on weekdays. I often have events that I must attend, and while I could chose someone from the town, I'd rather not expose them to the antics of my children which could and likely will include shapeshifting, flying, and my daughter who can control the North Wind.

Is there anyone out there who is looking for a summer position? I would pay generously, and of course would stock the kitchen with all sorts of goodies.


I would like to thank those who made fake references and papers for me. Getting a job likely would have been quite a bit more challenging than it was without your assistance. The insurance is already making me wish I had chosen another profession. Unfortunately I don't have the patience for anything else.

I was also wondering if anyone might know where to get affordable art supplies. I just need some simple charcoal pencils and paper.

I almost feel as if I woke up with someone else's hair today.

Is anyone on this network adept at selling things through the Internet?

You ought to know that Zelda and I are no longer dating. However, the breakup went very amiably, and we remain friends.

Those bloody Cornish Pixies took my glasses! Well, they didn't look like the Pixies of my world, but they certainly behaved like them. At least, what I got to see of them before they nicked my glasses! I hoped that they'd show up once the madness was over, but in the morning they were still gone. I had to take time off from work yesterday to go to the optometrist. What a bother! I'm practically blind without them.

On the plus side, I ordered a pair of prescription sunglasses.


Okay, I was just trying to grab some flowers along the water. I didn't really expect it would lead to being attacked by a [...] something. My Care of Magical Creatures knowledge has never been great.

It was a lovely little throwback to Divinations class with a Centaur and all, but I could have done without being attacked by some water demon.

I intended to inform everyone sooner but with the end of term and the Senior Class trip, once again, this got away from me. Still, we have time.

James, Lily Luna and I will be taking a family trip with Credence, Luna and Helena to Florida next month. I was gifted a trip from the portal back during the winter holidays and we are just now able to take advantage of it. Should anyone like to also venture to the Sunshine State, and the Walt Disney resorts, while we are in attendance, we would be more than glad to spend some time with you during our trip. We will be there from July 8th to the 14th. I've attached our itinerary [here].

Let us know.

As for the current trip I am chaperoning, the 5 mile hike in Yellowstone was, well, intense.
I do not know if you will want to go, or will be able to with the shop having just open, but if you cannot, I would still like to take Fred with us. If that is alright. I think Helena would have a more enjoyable time with someone her age and I do not want him to feel excluded.

The kids turn seven on Wednesday so we are going to have a little party on Saturday. Come over. We'll have cake.

I'm going to need an Herbology-class-sized greenhouse very soon.

Hello, Prof. Snape. Would it be too awkward of a conversation if I asked you what you're doing for a living here?

Because I'm currently unemployed and terribly picky with what I want to do -- which is probably a bad idea considering our limited options in a Muggle world -- and I had been wondering if you managed to find an equivalent career that involves potions.

As you may or may not know, The Pit has been under construction for some time now. Due to the delay caused by our Ocean Cruise, we've just recently finished construction on our dedicated Quidditch Pitch and are almost ready to received visitors.

We will be opening our doors, so to speak, on Tuesday May 29th at 8 AM. However, we invite everyone to come out to the premises on Sunday May 27th. We will be having an open house on that day so if you've never seen Quidditch in action or how a broom flies, you can come get a glimpse ahead of time. We are planning on a full day of pickup games and will be showing everyone how the game is played should people need explanation.

The Pit is user friendly and if you've ever had a dream of mounting a broom and taking to the air then we are here for you. While we have rental brooms available for all Wizards and Witches, we also have brooms specifically designed for use by non magical patrons. That's right. You do not have to have magic in order to participate.

I've provided a schedule of what we currently offer here. There will be lessons available beginning on opening day and ideally, once we have enough interested people, we will begin to have weekend matches in the near future.

Thank you.

I need one more instructor. Does anyone have interest in teaching flying and would like to interview with myself, Bill and James?

Bad news: I'm no longer a witch.

Good news: I can control the weather. Or... badder news? That could be bad news too. I'm not sure how to deal with not being able to tend to my potions, but at least I can make it rain on my plants.

Oh, except.. that recent thunder and lightning? That wasn't me.

Apr. 14th, 2018


Bad news: getting a job here is going to be a little tricky. I'm not too familiar with Muggle ways of doing things. I certainly don't see anything around here where one could sell potions, and also, that sounds like something that would probably cross the statute of secrecy deal anyway.

Good news: I'm living with my parents again, so that means I can at least take some time to sit and down some activities I used to want to make time for. At least until I get bored and realize that I should probably continue to contribute to the family income.

Okay, so I didn't end up keeping any of the Pokemon. Measure the pros and cons in my head about keeping one and which one would tolerate all the houseplants I have in my room already and decided I'll stick with the houseplants and then maybe get a frog later on in life. I used up my Pokeballs the first day anyway.

But I'm super relieved I didn't have to stay in the medbay for longer than a week and managed to heal up well enough to navigate this port. Not only has it been super fun, but I got a chance to explore, see the rarer animals at the Foundation and just take the time to draw.

Picture attached )

I'm thinking I'm going to go and frame this one.

I do not need, nor do I want another rat or rat-like pet, thank you.

[Private to Friends and Family of Fred & George Weasely]
Because of the pirate attack, we really didn't get to celebrate Fred & George's birthday. It might be nice to do something for them while we're here?

Apr. 1st, 2018


Head's up. Robo-docs said I can leave the medbay. Just in time for dad's birthday, even. So, coming back up to the suite shortly.

Mar. 28th, 2018


I feel like a truck hit me. I can't move much but.. I'm awake, less anesthesized, alive and kicking thanks to the docs and robodocs (except not literally because I don't have the energy to kick), and am allowed visitors. If anyone wants to visit. I'm not going to be leaving the medbay for a while.

Text messages: Lily Luna Potter (sent in the middle of the night)
» Dearest Lilu
» By the time you get this message, it'll probably be morning. Hopefully. It's like 4AM right now.
» And therefore, I need you to prepare some clothes for me to grab before I go back to my suite
» You know.. because that's not where I'm sleeping right now, and I need a change of clothes before I go back!
» Love you lots.

Dear family, you have been forewarned.

All the plants are coming back with me. My bedroom is going to be full of them. I have much research to do behind them. Obviously, this is not Muggle town, nor is it Wizard town, so we'll see what kind of plants this place has. Fred is also forewarned. He's not allowed in my room to mess with things, or I'll turn him into an oversized turnip.

In other news, I drew sketches of the area with my new friend, Rachel, for all of you.

I haven't even finished my paintings of Middle Earth yet. My paint set is getting a really good workout on this trip.

Anyone want to be my art buddy? I'm going to at least attempt to get in some good sketches in our next stop.

I suppose this just goes to show that there is no such thing as a permanently closed portal.

Mar. 1st, 2018


Oooooookay. Well, I know for a fact I’m not nearly drunk enough for this to be an alcohol induced dream, so I guess I’ll take it as an actual thing that is actually happening.

Hi, people if Cruise Ship. I mean, it’s just about Spare Oom in Wardrobe, right? Right. I’m Lily Luna Potter and I’m pretty sure if the calendar is right, we somehow just restarted the month of March and somewhere in the universe Alby’s heart is doing little palpitations of joy because time travel is actually real outside of the usual methods that were destroyed. Should I expect a TARDIS anytime soon?

Sooo. I’m officially not turning 34 when I just l turned 33. It was seriously just today. I wis still celebrating. ButI will expect a party and cake by the end of tge month, so if my family is here, I guess prepare yourselves.

Otherwise, happy birhday, Uncle Ron if you’re here. If not, I guess still happy birthday somewhere anyway.

Merlin’s saggy tits. This four hour wait is going to be a long time with only these robots and myself to talk to. Which is to say, someone should definitely come entertain me. I'm accepting family and complete strangers. Just don't be axe murderers and I won't have to hex you.

I don't think there's a curse in all of the Dark Arts potent enough for me to have my full vengeance against whoever is responsible for the misery I endured in the wee hours of this morning.

Roxanne, tell me some of your healing supplies made it through the portal with you, because I think it's possible I still might die.

Feb. 24th, 2018


Alright. Alright. Cool, cool, cool, cool, cool.

So first of all, what the fuckrench toast. Secondly, why would you yank a guy to another dimension in the midst of eating breakfast? Most important meal of the day? Unacceptable.

What’s up? I’m Jamie. Heard my parents are here...?



how many of you know how to play poker??

I suppose it is too much to ask that there is a non-headache inducing explanation to all this.

Hello! I don't know how I got here but I'm looking for a very large herd of red-haired folk that I call my family. And if any of them ask... no, I did not get here via apparition, because, no I still haven't passed my apparition test.
