    Open Not to be Frogotten

    Closed for now, open after a few posts. The plans were set. The supplies were tucked safely into Hayley’s bag. And now, at last, they would set their grand prank in motion. Hayley couldn’t think of the last time she had been so excited. Her whole body buzzed with nerves and elation. This was...

    Not an Absence but a Slowdown

    So as of Monday I'm starting at a new job, which means that I'll have significantly less time for everything else, including HNZ. I'll still be posting lessons and doing threads, but I'll be slower to reply to things than I have been. For the next week or so I have no idea what my pattern will...

    Closed A Ribbeting Development

    Working at Gambol and Jape's had set Hayley's mind buzzing with ideas, and she and Harley had come up with something that they thought would be a fantastic senior prank, the perfect way to end their time at Hogwarts with a bang. They didn't have much of a plan, yet, but they'd agreed that there...

    A Pile of Characters

    Closed The Rose and its Thorns

    It seemed to Hayley that everything was finally going right. She had wanted this for so, so, long, and now, at last, she was dating Harley. And it was everything she'd dreamed it would be, and more. To kiss Harley, and walk with her hand in hand, and know that she felt the same . . . it was...

    Closed Complementary Colours

    It was the day after Valentines, and romance was on Hayley's mind.She'd only spent one Valentine's Day with Lizzie, but nevertheless on such a relationship-focused day it was inevitable that her thoughts would continually drift back to that past . . . and to possible futures. She hadn't wanted...

    An Accidental Absence

    So I’ve been pretty busy with family stuff the past few of weeks, and I kept meaning to go on HNZ but then not having the energy to write anything coherent when I did. Thus, this isn’t an absence notification so much as an ‘I accidentally vanished for a little while, oops’. So for the people...

    Closed Fun with Friends

    Hayley had almost hesitated over going to the Yule Ball this year, worried that it would be full of memories of her time with Lizzie. But eventually her friends had persuaded her that it would be worth going for fun, together like they used to before any of them got into romantic relationships...

    Closed Fury and Perspective

    Hayley had resolved to draw more from life, to get the hang of the skills for more realistic art, and to keep herself out of her head and away from her thoughts. Life wasn't often as badass as her drawings from her imagination, especially since she couldn't draw Lizzie any more, but she did live...

    New Characters and Old

    Okay so I have a new firstie this year . . . Madeline Kaimarama Maddy is an adventurous, optimistic girl who’s very friendly and bouncy. She’s obsessed with dragons and having “adventures” - she rarely sets out to break the rules, but tends to disregard them as uninteresting. Maddy is the...

    National Novel Writing Month

    Hey! November's coming up, and I for one am starting to plan my NaNo novel. Who else is doing NaNo? What are your ideas? My NaNo idea is based on worldbuilding: a sci-fi world where all the usual sci-fi stuff is powered by magic rather than pseudoscientific technobabble. The main characters...

    Closed The Politics of Love

    Hayley was walking on air as she strolled up from Slytherin to meet Lizzie. It was a few days after the elections, and although Hayley had been frustrated by being too young to vote, she was vindicated in that her favourite candidate had won anyway. Hayley hadn’t managed to attract much interest...

    Time for the Two of Us

    Hayley had been looking forward to this all day. Her time spent with Lizzie had been brief moments snatched between Lizzie’s rose deliveries; Hayley was impressed by her enthusiasm, but it was frustrating, today of all days. But tonight? Tonight was just for them. This time Hayley had arrived...

    Revolution 3

    Well, the last attempted meeting of the revolution . . . nothing much happened . . . and I know the site is pretty quiet at the moment, but Hayley won't drop this, so neither will I. That said, I'm not sure what would work to do next. Hayley's been thinking about the possibility of making a...

    The Way Things Were

    Hayley sat on the floor beside Harley with a paintbrush in her hand and paints spread out between them, making illicit public art together just like they used to. It was good to spend time with her best friend again, just chatting contentedly. She had missed this. Things had changed between them...

    Mastering Science

    Well, I'm not exactly back since I didn't actually leave but . . . I submitted my Masters! This means that I have a month completely free, where I aim to be more active on HNZ. After that I'm starting work on publishing a paper from my thesis (aaaaa) for 2 months, where I'll be busier again...

    Revolution Part 2

    The next meeting of the revolution is up here! This meeting is, as arranged (quite a while ago, sorry, thesis-writing ate all my time), meant for those who want to discuss Hayley's ideas, and bring ideas of their own. It's invite-only IC, but Hayley wouldn't turn anyone away who wasn't totally...

    The Things You Need to Know

    Hayley sat alone at a big table in the library, with an assortment of books spread haphazardly out around her. Doing research wasn't normally her scene, but if she wanted the revolution to get anywhere she had to educate herself about the issues she was protesting. Thus she'd collected a bunch...
