See, the thing about being me is that even when you're supposed to do a BWU nobody's sure if you will and then you planned to but it was already being taken care of so then you get rescheduled but then you think you might let everybody down if you're not at least a little late. So here I am, meeting everybody's expectations by being just a little disappointing - and here you are, reading this Bi-Weekly Update because you've gotsta know what's been the latest and greatest 'round these here interwebs.


End of Semester 1
Semester 1 is over, so a big thank you to professors for completing all that grading! (Seriously - a local university near me didn't give students their grades until after the next semester had begun! Imagine not knowing if you'd passed as you began the next semester :DE: !)

Holiday Forums are Open!
With the end of semester 1 comes a holiday break - :santa: and his little :elf: visiting, and many HNZ students back home for the visit. Enjoy roleplaying all around the wizarding world during the break!

Yule Ball
Semester 1 may be over, but it's still not too late to dive into the Yule Ball. Just don't forget those dress robes!

Beauxbatons v. Ilvermorny
The first #international quidditch game using the Quidditch system took place, and Beauxbatons took a handy victory - but there will be other games!




Have a prize? Use your prize!
Sometimes, we give out prizes. Sometimes, it's HNZ's birthday or Christmas in the real world when we give out prizes. Sometimes, people like to hold on to those prizes forever like our little roleplaying forum is some kind of punishing video RPG where you're convinced if you use that potion now you won't have it when you need it around the next corner and then you just never use it. Our prizes expire! They've got a one-year timer on them and then they disappear into the ether. Disappearing prizes make us sad! Don't let your prize disappear, friends: use your prize! (This is especially for white elephant winners. ;) )

Spotlighting Kalif Styx
Whether you love to hate him or hate to love him, you've got feelings about him and he's our February Character Spotlight - so this is your chance to ask that burning question about what exactly did crawl up ... erm, well, ask the questions you've got. It's a good opportunity to peer into Kaitlyn's mind, a good opportunity to learn a bit more about character development yourself, and a good opportunity to help us all develop better characters!

Anonymous Compliments
Sure, you could say nice things to people directly - but that could be awkward - what if you embarrass them? What if they get the wrong idea? What if you're complimented and you don't know what to say back to them?
Never fear! Anonymous Compliments are back, so share some kind words in time for the feast day of the patron saint of love!
