Package Awesomeness!!:D

I finally have time to show you all my awesome package from Amethyst Aurag!!!! Thanks sooo much Amethyst!!!:D

The Daily Prophet - Special Rush Edition!

Hogwarts Headmistress Solves Crime!!!

By, Hermione Bagnold and Olive Bumblebirch
London, England
Latest intelligence reports that unknown to the wizarding world at large, the Quidditch World Cup Trophy, an item of great importance in next year's match results, had been stolen! The Ministry of Magic recruited a top secret employee to resolve the case, using a witch in their employ that the last person would expect...the Headmistress of Hogwarts, Winifred Wartbobble! This talented witch who has a knack for searching out troublemakers, followed a trail of clues all around the globe before finally cornering the thief: a vampire! As it turns out, this vampire used to be a wizard that lost his magical powers and rights (though not his love for Quidditch and flying around on his old broom under the cover of darkness!) when this transformation took hold in him. It all goes back to the very first Quidditch World Cup, in 1473, between Transylvania and Flanders. This particular wizard was a spectator at the historical match, and witnessed firsthand all 700 fouls known to the sport, including the release of a hundred blood-sucking vampire bats from the Transylvanian captain's robes! One of these numerous winged mammals bit an onlooker and turned him into a vampire.
After further investigation into the matter, it seems as though the Ministry, upon hearing of the situation, not only broke his wand, but refused to cover any costs in damages to the poor wizard. Miss Wartbobble, after locating his lair, had to duel for her life; a duel in which he did not survive. Among his possessions was evidence that he had been long searching for a way to make the Ministry of Magic pay for it's inept handling of the Quidditch Match so long ago. It was only after being able to obtain the Hand of Glory and some Peruvian Instant Darkness Powder (a Weasley's Wizard Wheezes ware, obtained by mail-order) that he was able to finally put things into play. The trophy was not on the grounds of his estate, but rather hidden in an abandoned broom factory in the Black Forest of Germany. The Ministry is naturally pleased to have the item back in their possession, but the question still remains of how they intend to keep it safe from now on.

Let's Chat!

I will be hanging in the Quidditch Tent today if anyone wants to chat!

Winnie's Box of Clues

After carefully inspecting the contents of the package, Wisty and Siobahn have deduced that there is nothing dangerous inside. There is a note from Winnie as well as these items:

"Dear Wisty, Siobahn, and students,

After weeks of travel and following leads, I've found the person I was looking for: the thief who stole the Quidditch World Cup trophy! He was very reluctant to talk, quite angry and I had to defend myself. I'm sorry to say there won't be getting any information out of him anymore, and that's a problem because he's hidden the trophy somewhere. I gathered all of the personal belongings he had with him before his sudden demise, and am enclosing them in this package. Please take care as I haven't had time to inspect them for magical qualities beyond the obvious. See if you can identify where the trophy might be hidden. I will be staying at a low-profile inn awaiting your conclusion. Just send a note back by this same owl--she knows where to find me.


Please feel free to work with your teammates to figure out this last and most important clue! The deadline is midnight Wednesday, PST.

Owl Post from Emma Wigworthy

...has arrived! Many many thanks! I'm so thrilled!!

Winnie's Secret Mission

Winnie has been all over the world and seems to have reached her final destination. Today I saw that Wisty and Siobahn received a small box by owl from her, and the address looked very hastily written. I didn't get to see what was inside, but written on the outside flap was the mysterious clue,

5 words: 6, 9, 5, 3, 6

Of course they hurried away with the box and are closeted up in their office, examining and testing whatever was inside. Maybe some rare magical items, perhaps a dragon's egg? I wish they would tell me! I wonder what that clue meant...

What's That Hiding?

Hello, students!!!
I was a little indisposed the last couple of weeks. I am ever so grateful to Olive for sending along my letter so that you were able to read it. My adventures have certainly led me all over the world!

This week I'm heading to the place where Christmas began as I seek to find the hiding place of a souvenir of sorts somewhere near the notorious being from last week's letter. It is Rather cold here and making it almost impossible for me to continue writing this letter, so I will keep it short.

I believe that I'll be able to return to Hogwarts soon! The journey is almost at it's end. Whew!

Yours Truly & Happy Holidays!

To Maisy.....

Hope your birthday was a very happy one,
Maisy Muddlestixs!!!!

Letter from Winnie

As Assistant Captain to Siobhan, Captain of the Magpies, it wasn't a big deal when she asked me to put something away in her office for her. What is a big deal is what I accidentally found on her desk, partially buried under some parchments...

Letter from Winnie!

She's not missing after all! She's ok, and she's been having some adventures. The first short letter was dated from a couple weeks back and said simply,

"I'm in a large city stocking up on supplies before a dangerous trip. I'm not sure How long it will take to get there but I've got Plenty of garlic. It should be easy to find holy water and a cross here, and hopefully they're authentic becaUse I'm going to need them."

The next letter came just last week and said,

"I've finally arrived in a dark region nortHwest of a mountain range. As expected, I've already used the supplies I picked up last Week to keep unwanted guests away, though an invisibility cloak helps, too. Good thing I've been practicing my Protego charm! The other daY I had a close run-in with a certain notorious being, but escaped just in the 'neck' of time!

I'm definitely getting tIred of all the traveling, but I'm hoping I'll be able to return to Hogwarts soon. I've got just one more Quick trip to make, and I'll send an owl as soon as I find what I'm looking for."

That answers one question, but it raises so many more: where has Winnie been? and what is she doing??
