Well, well.. this place again. But the second time's the charm, right? Or is that the third. Ah well. Anyway, hello Galador. Nice to be here again. I am Raiden.

Well, Brooke and I start the year off with 4 children, soon to be 5, as Brooke grows closer to giving birth. As you saw in her post we welcomed Chase Alan Scott and Kingston James Scott to the family. Sydney is our only little girl for a few more weeks. If it wasn't for our nannies we would be going crazy!

Back to the point of this update. The Writers Block will be having a Book Club starting this month. We are also still hiring, more so now that our head Barista Olive is becoming famous.

That being said, the info for the book club is down below. Sign up now.

BIG BOOK CLUB, PART 1
Thursday, January 21 | 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
THIS WINTER: 2666
A two-part book club discussion of Roberto Bolano’s novel, 2666.


The Big Book Club tackles some of the thickest and most enduring novels in world literature. Broken into two sessions over four months, the club invites readers to experience these books at a leisurely pace and to enjoy the companionship of fellow readers making the same journey at the same time.

In 2066, three academics are on the trail of a reclusive German author. A New York reporter on his first Mexican assignment; a widowed philosopher; a police detective in love with an elusive older woman—these are among the searchers drawn to the border city of Santa Teresa, where over the course of a decade hundreds of women have disappeared.

In the words of The Washington Post, “With 2666, Roberto Bolaño joins the ambitious overachievers of the twentieth-century novel, those like Proust, Musil, Joyce, Gaddis, Pynchon, Fuentes, and Vollmann, who push the novel far past its conventional size and scope to encompass an entire era…”

This is the first of two book-club sessions. Attendees are encouraged to read 2666 through Chapter 3 (pg. 349) by this first meeting.

So if anyone is interested, I've started up a "Fortune Teller" business.

I'm actually pre-cognitive and am quite accurate with the visions that I receive. So I can put on a show and act like a carnival side-show act, complete with a crystal ball, or I can keep it completely casual. I can even do it over the network if that is what you prefer.

I don't really care if this is real or not. Or if I'm stuck in a world full of nothing but muggles.

If it gets me away from my family.... then I'll be happy here.

Hello, everyone. This is just a little reminder that we'll be holding our annual remembrance ceremony tonight for the lives lost at the Battle of Hogwarts.

7pm this evening on the front lawns of Hogwarts Castle. It is open to anyone who wishes to remember a lost loved one or anyone who fell in battle (from our world or any other). All I ask is that you be respectful of everyone.

Veterans of any kind, please stop by the Leaky Cauldron today for a free meal on me.

Movies in the park went over so well. We raised $250 thanks to your generosity. I think we might do this once a month. If you have any suggestions please let me know. For those of you who missed it, 'To Kill A Mocking Bird,' will also be this Friday's movie.

Just when I thought I'd found someone the gem sends him back.

To Witches, Warlocks and Magicians
I have a special even planned for our students and teachers on Saint Patrick's Day. I have need of someone to do what Merlin was going to do.

I'm finally going home. The New Year is such a blur. I've delivered too many babies over the last six days to count. I plan on sleeping for at least a day. Then I intend to celebrate with James and Elle. I'm sorry you guys but the babies wouldn't wait.

I don't think I've ever been this exhausted.

Are there any places that have a lane of Christmas lights that you can walk or drive through? My anniversary is coming up on Christmas and my wife would be all over something like that. I'd love to surprise her with it.

[Family members]

Who would like to volunteer to watch Jude for us that night?

It's been a bit of a slow day today, so I've been playing in the kitchens.

Fresh apple pie with a scoop of handmade Butterbeer flavoured ice cream at the Leaky Cauldron tonight! 🍎🍧

This place just seems to grow by the minute, doesn't it? I hope all of our new arrivals are doing well!

WITCHES & MAGIC PRACTITIONERS
Blessed be!

Samhain is nearly here. I would like to extend an invitation to anyone who doesn't want to celebrate alone to join me. I'll be preparing a Feast of the Dead dinner (though we can easily change that to a potluck), and plan to light a bonfire as well. If enough are interested, perhaps a nature walk earlier in the day or a group ritual.


TORI & MOUSE
It's almost Samhain, so you know what that means. Time for Mom to renovate and re-focus. No need to worry if you find me tossing out junk I don't need and scrubbing the house.

On an unrelated note, did either of you find anything from home recently?

Now that I've had a few days to get settled in, I would like to know if anyone needs a maid? I can't obviously provide references but I can promise that I have many years of experience. I was practically raised by maids so I learned from the best. I can also double as a nanny! I love kids.

What in Merlin's name is this device and why am I here? The people at the so called Welcome Centre told me to type on here and introduce myself. I'm Draco Malfoy if that means anything which it should hopefully do so.

Well. I'm here again, which... brilliant, because my best mates are here and alive... but I also now know for fact that time passes differently between worlds. I was only back home for two days. Two days. Yet, apparently I've been gone from here for several months.

Remembrance Day is tomorrow. As usual, I'll be holding a small vigil at Hogwarts at dusk. Anyone who would like to join me is more than welcome.



DASH
I've baked a batch of Banana and Walnut tea bread today. I've left it in a tin on the counter. Please help yourself to as much as you'd like when you get home.

I was thinking perhaps this weekend we could go do something fun together, just the two of us? A quiet park, maybe? Or hiking in one of the forests? What do you like to do for fun?

Not sure how many wizarding types we've got around here, but... any interest in putting together a small Quidditch league? Nothing serious, just a way for us to be a little competitive?

Dad
Fancy some father/son bonding time?

Ron and Hermione
I miss my best mates. Two of you got any plans today?

Hello? I'm new here. I never thought I'd end up in space.

Who do I talk to about getting a job? I'd prefer not to work but also I need to support myself. I like flowers, fashion and decorating things.

Oh, I do suppose I should introduce myself. I'm Petunia Evans. I believe my baby sister Lily is here?

I would like to thank the woman at the Welcome Center for being very kind and informative.

They said I should try to communicate on here to see if perhaps my family is here as well.

Rhysand? Feyre? Morrigan? Cassian? Amren?

Elain?

Are you out there?

Blimey... muggles never fail to impress me with these things...

Right. Anyway... can anyone hear me? Am I using this thing properly?

Name's Neville Longbottom. Supposedly to be showing up for my first day of work, so if anyone can help me out here, I'd appreciate it...

Alright, motherfuckers!

My darling, cute-as-a-button assistant is taking a month off for some well-earned vacation time. Which means... this royal bitch right here is looking for a temporary assistant.

That's right... who's got what it takes to keep my fine ass out of (too much) trouble for the next month?
