Welcome all to the Gryffindor common room! I am your Head of House (HoH) sarahy. Please come in and join your fellow Gryffindors!
A few things to remember-
Your house-mates are as good as your family so please treat each other with respect and kindness just as you would a sibling or parent.
If you are new to this group (or if you're not, it doesn't matter) kindly introduce yourself. The faster we get to know eachother, the better we will get along.
Your current prefect is:
*Current Gryffindor Students*
Points for our House
please let me know if more points are earned and not counted!
so, just to start, i am sarahy and i am...umm... a gryffindor.... and, so, yeah.... welcome!
I just want to ermm...
(Check that nobody's there, steal the chocolate frogs and sweets)
Hello fellow lions! I am Naturalb - I live near the PA/MD line - also known as the mason Dixon line! So glad you are here Sarah!!! :) Welcome to all house mates!
Hey - how did neica get in our common room - did someone lose their password again? Time to change it - not that we mind visitors but sweet theives are a no no!!!
#8 - I let the "duh" slide just this once..lol.
I know she's magical but at same time you have to know the password for the common rooms...
Yep. Magic has to follow its own rules, and one of the "rules" of magic in the Harry Potter series is that, even with magic, you can't get into the Gryffindor or Slytherin common rooms without a password, and you can't get into the Ravenclaw common room without answering a riddle. (Don't know if Hufflepuff requires a password or not, but I'll bet that detail is one of the things that will be part of Pottermore!)
So, since I'm a Ravenclaw and this is the Gryffindor common room, I guess I'm not really here!
sarah - do we know what our points standing is? What can we do for points....?
well i asked the headmistress and she said we were carrying the points over from the old group.... so let me go check what that would set us at.....
450 from the old group... can everyone just let me know if they earn points from alisha or in the easy point lounge... thanks!
attention, gryffindors. the message has been sent for our scavenger hunt. kindly refrain from posting your questions on this group, as no one from the other houses were invited.
no offense, everyone else!
sarahy could you Please tell Hufflepuff how you go about having a scavenger hunt since we want to have one too?
you guys were second in the running for house cup! we have to beat ravenclaw before sept 1!
#23- thanks for the pic!
#26, supersam- if you want to help us earn points, try out the scavenger hunt!! we need the points!!
hey sarahy, you were clever by making your scavenger hunt groups private!
sara - I got points for answering a question in the points lounge!! :)
Don't worry I'm not here to start a duel or anything just simply here to extend an olive branch of friendship. Some of you may have read on the notice board that the "series" group, the first group I created, is going to have it's grand reopening after the "summer slumber" we had. The griffyndor head of house, sarahy, is already an active member, as are many other people in this group. So even though you guys are griffyndor, we would love to have you join!!
I just wanted to drop by for a visit and let sarahy know that at 7:53 AM the Hufflepuff scavenger hunt officially began.
I would like to Thank sarahy for helping me out to get started on our scavenger hunt. And I hope she'll be awarded some
points for being so nice and friendly.
#34- yes, neica, you are proof of why i did that!
#39- thanks, mrmcfluff! i love that group, and we need more members!
#40- no problem beatles, but i dont know who would award those points.......... maybe only alisha has that power?
Well, then you're right that probably only Alishamb08 can award you yhe points.
Well, I just thought it would be a nice gesture if sarahy could get some points for being so nice and helpful to me for helping
me figure out how to do my scavenger hunt for Hufflepuff.I tihnk she should be rewarded.
Yes that is true, sarahy will receive 10 points for being so nice and helpful.
Also Beatles please give everyone in your house 5 points, as I have been absent for the past 2 days due to a stomach virus, and everyone held down the fort just nicely. Thank you that is all...
Thank You Very Much Head Mistress!! I appreciate it very much!! :O)
notice from your HoH, sarah- c'mon, gryffindors! we are in second place (i believe) for the House Cup, and only 2 people that i am aware of have participated in our scavenger hunt. we need those points
help your house! join our scavenger hunt!

Gryffindors! we are so close to winning the house cup! we can do it! go gryffs!!! :)
is there anyone who would like to roll for the broomsticks race? you must be a gryff, neica. XD
Hello,my fellow gryffindors?
How have you all been?
Am on vacation and I'm cross at my cousins so decided to log on :-)
So anyway we recently had an epic waterfight and are planning our annual party right now but as I realize,many people are against my ideas, just because I'm the youngest,being 15 I decided to leave the conversation.
So anyway I have been taking cake decorating classes with my oldest cousin and, I must say it's quite fun!
Can't wait to get back to ya'll and tell you everything!
I might log on alot for five days :D
#64 - I feel great seeing you again aswell sarzypants!
#65 - Hey there naturalb! Thank you so much!
Head of House please deduct 10 points for amysmiling's food fight in the Great Hall. Thank you.
bummer - food fight!! Sarah i rolled - sorry I read that post first and thought we needed a roller.... i will read this post 1st from now on!
More a chance for Slytherin's victory.
Thank you Marissa.
attention gryffindor students
we some one to roll for the next broomstick race. do not roll until headmistress says to. let me know if you would like to roll. we need a volunteer. thanks!
Have they announced the cup yet? Sarah - I think we lost by 5 pts!!! Ravenclaw posted they have 620...... :(
nope, all were counted. ravenclaw won fair and square.
since we were so close, i am confident we can win this semester. i encourage everyone to participate in the Easy Point Lounge and Broomstick Races. We need a head start!
In the meantime - are you doing a 2nd scavenger hunt for qryffs. I guess you could use the same groups and just add Question #1 for 2nd hunt, or something!
that would be a good idea... i believe that there is a group-wide scavenger hunt in the works, so not right now there is not a second one, but perhaps soon! great idea, naturalb... maybe i should award some points for that... :)
Head of House please be sure to set the points back to 0 as we are starting a new semester.
If you haven't already.
i did, but added the 5 from your cafe contest, and 3 from naturalb's idea. is that ok?
nice job millhold! you got second place in our gryffindor scavenger hunt, therefore earning us 25 more points! thanks for playing! i am setting up a second one, so i will post a notice as soon as it is ready. :)
the second scavenger hunt has begun. i have posted the first two questions already, and i am working on the rest. please go to the first scavenger hunt page first, then the rest as you go along.
we need a new roller for the new broomstick race! any volunteers?
and thanks naturalb for last time, so close!
we all owe millhold and naturalb a big "thank you" because....
both finished the second scavenger hunt! millhold earned us 50 points for first place, naturalb earned us 25 for second. now we have a strong lead in the house cup! thanks, guys! :)
Yeah - well I was here to remind you but it doesn't look like you need reminding!! :) Congrats Millhold!
hi! i just got sorted into Gryffindor, i really like this place! please let me know if you have any advice for me, i am new to this website and this is only my second club. i dont realy participate in the other one
Welcome to the group, HarryPotterGirl!
Advice: Listen to your HoH, and make sure you make friends and check out the activities to help your house earn points towards the next House Cup.
*apparates out of the common room*
Hello new griffindorer.
If you are worried about making friends don't be. Even us slytherins are nice. I'm Slytherin prefect by the way if you have any questions.
Also if you want to join another great Harry potter group, check out my profile and look at the "series" group. I'll send you a personal invitation if you want. That goes for all gryffindorers. Except I think almost everyone has already joined.
hi HarryPotterGirl! firsto of all, love the username. perfect for this group.
second of all, i am sarahy, the head of gryffindor house. welcome! please feel free to participate in group activities!
and feel free to contact me for any LT questions... i've been on here for a while! :)
Welcome HPGirl! I'm the Gryff prefect! You'll enjoy this group! Advice - participate participate participate!!!! :)
good advice, b! :) i agree... slytherin isgetting closer than i would like, points-wise...
Sarah- #1 - Being observant is good - it will hopefully help you get where you want to be in life... learing to correct others without it resulting in their ire is a little tougher!
#2 - may i humbly suggest another scanger hunt - I will gladly help with it - although that may be difficult for me to participate....
yes, naturalb, that is a brilliant idea... im sorry i just started the school year and i am in a theatre team and soccer team and just trying to work out the whole charms quiz thing... i will work on that and get back to you :)
Fellow Gryffs - I will be leaving for vacation next week and will not return til month end. If I can I will get on and try to catch up - in the mean time please do not consider me absent without cause or consider undone assignments as default. I will also post on the Notice Board and my class!
gryffindors, i dont want to be the mean one, but no one has been doing anything lately! supersam and naturalb are the only active ones on this house! i have a busy schedule and cannot do everything myself. that is not what gryffindor is about! please post on here that you are on and can be at least partly active for a while, i will award you 5 points.
Yeah I had a social studies test on Tuesday, a science quiz today, and I have a math quiz and French test tomorrow.
sorry i havent been on in a couple of days school has been crazy! lol
its ok supersam, me too....
i had a math quiz today, a science test friday, a reading quiz monday, and a math test monday :(
Happy Belated Birthday, Supersam! I hope you had a wonderful time on your day! :) What flavor was your cake?
thanks! and it was vanilla :) although i would have prefered chocolate lol
i like chocolate better! lol
here's your present from the whole house! (even the inactive members, lol)
Belated Happy Birthday, Supersam!!! From the Slytherin House:
Hope you like it:)
Here's one from Hufflepuff.
I'll be happy to roll for Gryffindor in quidditch, unless you wanted to do it.
that would be great if you would! i'm getting rather tired of doing it....
Well, Nemesis tried to roll a good one for Gryffindor in quidditch, but she failed. The dice are still cursed.
You should be proud! That was a nice bit of cursework, of the caliber as my camel curse. :)
Hello Gryffindor! How are you guys doing? I hope that you guys are having fun and earning some points.
thanks, headmistress. we aren't earning very many points, but i'm having fun!
I'm glad that you are happy fun. That's what counts. Don't worry about the House cup so much there will be tons of opportunity to earn the points for the House cup.
Hello Gryfs! i just wanted to tell everyone i'm sorry i havent been on lately. My schoolwork leaves me no time to get on :"(
since naturalb has not been seen in a very long time, i am opening up the position for prefect.
however, due to lack of participating members, i have a feeling naturalb may be the prefect for a while more...
Hello fellow Gryffindors! My name is Flannery and I just got sorted into this house! I am very happy to be here, so please introduce yourselves to me! And i know that I am new, but I guess I volunteer for prefect, what do I have to do?
Hi flannery! welcome to gryffindor! i would love to have you as a prefect... if you are sure you're interested, pm (private message) me and answer the following:
1. Do you think you can be responsible with prefect privileges?
2. Why do you want to be the prefect?
3. How often are you on librarything?
ps if you missed it i am the head of house of gryff
and feel free to join in on broomstick races or easy points lounge... we need the points!
This thread will lead you to the Broomstick Races, although technically it isn't broomstick racing. It involves dice and one person rolls once for each house - whoever has the highest number on the dice wins! http://www.librarything.com/topic/125558
Welcome, new prefect!
flannery is our new Gryffindor prefect, since naturalb has disappeared...
thanks flannery! serve your house well!
thank you! Now, I promise to act just like percy Weasley! ( jk)
yes! now all of you, I expect this dormitory to be spotless! Move!
don't worry people! I won't be mean! Ill be like the nice cross of Rita Skeeter and Umbridge! wait, thats not a very good thing now is it? you get it, Ill be nice
now, I heard that a few of you were setting of illegal potions in here... just fyi, tell me before you blow up the ceiling so that I can leave ok? then I'm sure we'll all get along fine!
i agree with flan. as long as you tell me before i get hurt, enjoy your potions.
sarahy I got 10 points for Gryffindor in the Easy Points Lounge!! these are my first points,so I dunno how to add them, so please add them up!!
bye veryone! I will be unreachable by Librarything or internet for a few days-- christmas vacay!!! Please conduct yourselves as if I were here! Have a very Merry Christmas everyone!
all right Im back! Have you all been behaving yourselves?
ahh, yes well... ya you're right. well have YOU been behaving yourself at least sarah?
She's been a seraphim, are you kidding? She's the frigging Deputy Headmistress! ;)
I know. :)
But she has been a lovely seraphim (I love saying that word - seraphim, seraphim, seraphim - isn't it pretty?).
Seraphim are angels with six wings - the name comes from Hebrew and it means "burning ones." I was incorrect in my usage of the word, though - Sarah would be a seraph, not a seraphim, as seraph is singular and seraphim is plural. Phooey on me for improper grammar. :(
thats ok. I like seraphim better, just HOW exactly is she one?
She's been an angel, she's so disgustingly perfect.
Or she is a heavenly being, has six wings, and flys around God all day, saying "holy, holy, holy." I doubt that, so I'll just settle for saying that Sarah has been awesome. :)
Eris, I see an astonishing amount of you in here.
Isn't this supposed to be OUR common room??
I'll just go sneak into your common room and brew illegal potions miss head of house!
* walks away muttering* Honestly!
Darling, everyone used to hang out at the Slytherin Common Room - it's about time some other Common Room took a turn.
Now where's my sleeping bag? I think I'll kip here for the night. ;)
Hmm, maybe I'll stop in there. Eris hon, feel free. We need more people in our common room anyway.
Thanks! It has been pretty lonely for a while - I am glad that Gryffindor is getting its spice back. :)
More action. Sarah was once the only active member and it was tough for her to get points. That's why I created another account called QueenNemesis, and purposely joined Gryffindor through that one. Fortunately, since you're here, I will probably retire it, and hopefully more Gryffindors will come, so that Gryffindor will never be lonely again.
oh, so metaphorically I am the spice... I like it
It's ok! We r a good team :) we are tied for last place now instead if just losing haha
HAPPY NEW YEAR ALL! ( SARAH)
THE WORLD IS NOT OVER!
I AM REALLY TIRED!
THE FIRST THING I DID THIS MORNING WAS GO ON LIBRARYTHING!
oh, and congrats to Silvesta! our newest member! that's 3 whole active members people!
Did you add up my 10 points sarah? and whom are we tied in last with?
Yeah, I went to bed worrying that the world would end at midnight and I would die in my sleep. no joke. :P
And yes welcome Silvesta! :D
I didn't really GO to bed last night, I watched the NYC times square concert
I just stayed up till 12:30 watching Nostalgia Critic videos on YouTube. Ares just told me he stayed up till 3. Probably playing his computer game.
Well, Happy New Year, everyone! From the bottom of my heart to yours, I hope that this year will be a good one for us all. In my mind it will be an excellent year - The Hobbit and Dark Knight Rises are coming out! *squeals*
Sarah!!!!!!!!!!!!! 10 points for gryff in the easy points lounge dearie!!
Wait flan 10 more?
And everyone it's silvsta not silvesta!!
But welcome anyway 😃
oooh, sorry silvsta, silvesta sounds more natural. and yes, 10 more.
yes, my sister is right... its silvsta. my friend actually calls me that sometimes and thats how i got the name... im soooooo happy im in Griffindor!!!!!!!!
Yeah. MisguidedChild is still in Gryffindor - she just changed her username from QueenNemesis to MisguidedChild.
I'm so glad it worked out for you! What did you do in your play?
thats so cool u had a play! what play did u do? like was it from a movie or........
ATTENTION: in posts # 238-243 my account was taken over by my little brother! I didn't write that so do not be alarmed! It WILL NOT happen again and I am sooooooooo mad at him!!!
the play that i was in was Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I was Willy Wonka...
I believe that we have a new member, Rosalynd!!
THATS 4 ACTIVE MEMBERS PEOPLE!!!!!!!! YAAAAAAYYY!
and sarah, was it MY pints that you added to points posting epl???
What? You mean you didn't get my LOTR reference? I am insulted!
Hmmm... That quote rings a bell... but I can't tell exactly where I saw it in the movies. :(
*goes back to biting pillow*
LOTR and J.R.R. Tolkien forever! I can't wait for December. :) I just finished The Hobbit today, and I am so happy.
not YOU fob, just idiot guys that hit girls and don't apologize and are all around general a**es...
and just for all of your information, here is what happened:
So I'm on the bus, and this kid, (we'll call him Jim) walked up to me and punches me in the nose for no reason AT ALL!!
when I go to my seat silently and proceed to cry, Jim comes over and proceeds to tell me what a baby I am, and that it wasn't even that hard. I then punch him softly in the jaw and sit back down. he calls me a few choice words and says that he will NOT apologize because he did not do anything wrong...
and to make it worse, my supposed friend that was on said bus and didn't defend me!!! She now says I am " holding a grudge ver nothing at all" and tells everyone what a bitch I am.
that was 2 days ago and I am still pissed and jim still hasn't apologized.
You can see, Fob, why I wish that all guys could all go for a long swim in the middle of the Atlantic ocean.
Well, that friend doesn't sound like a friend, so at least you don't have to waste your time with her now that she's shown her true colors. As for Jim, have you talked to any adults about him, say your parents or a teacher?
I agree with Sarah, Flan :(
And Eris I can't wait until December too I need to see that movie!!!
Hello Maui! My name is Eris, and on behalf of all Slytherin, I welcome you to Hogwarts. Don't blow up the ceiling, leave the Headmistress's chocolates alone (she's very senistive about them), and don't be alarmed if my head starts to spin in circles. Have fun! :)
Hi Maui! I am the charming and kind prefect of Gryff house, Flan. Welcome!
If you want to believe that flan is charming, kindly ignore the last few posts
I guess we have a new member!!
Man, nobody posts here much...
it would be nice if more people posted... i like chatting with people
It's a bad movie quote, but here's the explanation: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IKNVNe9l3wM
So, anytime you're in an argument and you want someone to shut up, just use that line and they'll leave you alone! It's perfect.
wow... I'm really bored! this site is really boring with no one to talk to! Am I the only one not going someplace to do something fun over break?????
Nope. I'm not going on vacation or anything, but then again, I never do.
Let's link to videos of people being bored! I'll start.
just search "bored people"
I got a bunch of things and just clicked on a random one
Hi guys! Sorry for my late return... Flan, u changed ur username.. I have to update that..
hey flan, i am assuming that you would like to stay as prefect...
hmm. okay. my word is goofenshlab. said exactly as it was spelled. i was a creative 5th grader.
It can kinda mean what ever u want... I had it to mess things up, like the schedule got goofenshlobed or something...
Cus!! How's it going? Colorado and I were just talking about who was here.
Well, I'm here. Now we need a discussion. I know! Let's talk about movies! What movies are you guys looking forward to this year?
Im a social reject. :(
Lol i very rarely go see movies its very depressing. I did go see "The Lucky One" which was very good.
I'm a social reject as well, if by social reject you mean that you can count the number of friends you have on one hand (I can count them on one finger). I love good movies, and will be going with my brother to see "The Avengers" on Friday. I am also EXTREMELY pysched for "The Dark Knight Rises," "Brave," and "The Hobbit, Part I."
Social reject as in spending more time with a machine or a cat ( yes im a crazy cat lady but i only have two soim not to far into it). Idk qhat these things you call friends are. Lol. I only recognizeThe Avengers but i doubt i will be going to see it maybe once it come out on netflix.
Well... I for one, pride myself in having friends, but my true friends can be counted on one hand...
I also like The Lucky One. I thought that it was very well done.
Flan - That's good that you have friends - it's not that I don't try to make them. I do. It's just that I am incredibly awkward and moody when I meet people I don't know. With people that I know I am bubbly and cheerful, but I get very uncomfortable around people my age trying to be friends with me.
Eh people are over rated...joking of corse some people are just able to be people persons. Eris dont feel bad im terrible with people wether i want to "make friends" or not.
Flan did you read sparks book for the lucky one?
Yes I did read the book. I thought that the movie honestly was better though. The sex scenes in the book were really, like "geez!"
I thought they th weregood. They both had peices that were good i was kinda hoping that the movie walk were the men originally met.
FYI it says my post are being posted at 8 whatever but i am on tye west coast so its only 5 whatever here
Yeah, that's because LT deals in Eastern Time. They don't go by us Westerners ideas of time. :)
Hello Gryffindors, how are you guys and gals doing? It's such a lovely day outside, why on earth would you be inside? I hope your not up to something.
I am outside, or, was. I took a vigorous run (a.k.a. huffing and puffing) down and back up the creek next to my house. 2 miles baby!!!
unfortunately, I have to run a mile for my phy-ed final. UUg.
trust me, its not all that great. For the last lap everyone's yelling at you, like " sprint!!!!!!!" and your are like " i AM FREAKING SPRINTING!!!!!!" cus thats the fastest that you can go
i do about five miles running every tuesday, thursday, and friday, so it would be easy for me
actually, i have been doing that since i was about 7 and i am 14 now.
what? were you a super child? how did you run five miles at age 5? and why?
i have been on a track team since i was four, but i started doing long-distance when i was 7. but that is nothing compared to one of my friends, he holds the junior national record for the 800, and runs 7 miles a day with weights.
GRYFF...LETS EARN US SOME MORE POINTS! we could beat hufflepuff and ravelclaw if we tried! Ignore the S house, lets just focus on getting points!
Because Flan asked to be a while back, and she was granted the position. She's a Gryffindor like you. :)
You can PM the Headmistress if you want, and see if she'll allow you to be one and for there to be two prefects. She might not, though, as there is only one in all the other houses.
Gyffs...as soon as the next house cup begins, we need to start working harder at earning points...keep it up!
According to Lilly each house is to have 2 prefects...so could I be one?
I replied in the Headmistress office thread.... *disappears - lingers like an echo*
Hsas anyone relized that the only active grrys are myself and 3 or four others? It's not fair!!! Jk
Yup, the sad truth. Although, since our HOH is AWOL recently, drop sarah a pm, and I will talk to the Headmistriss to see if I can make an executive decision .
FYI: I am going to be on less than usuall this week, I got a job!
No I am not getting a real job, just helping a family friend run a sports camp for some little kids.
Welcome B! Feel free to ask questions on any thread, Eris, Ares, Lily, Myself, etc would be happy to help you!
I feel so alone, no Sarah or Flan or B...lets face it I am the only truley active Gryffindor...we are doomed in this house cup ;(
Please add myself (Katagirl) and bhdolphin11 to the Gryffindor students list Sarah!
Also, could you add me as the second prefect? Everyone must know my prefect role! JK
Checking in with the fat lady, I was sorted into Gryffindor.
Welcome to Gryffindor...
The membes of the house that are somewhat active are
Sarahy (Head of House) not been on in months
Bhdolphin11 (currently on a family no computer trip)
And a few others,
Also ErisofDiscord, StarlightLily, Theamwritter,AresofAmbition, Beatles, etc are always happy to get to know new members and help them out!
Now as a gryffingor you an earn points for your house. You can do this at the easy points lounge 5 where you answere a trivia question and if you get it right you get 10 points and post a new question. There is no hanging hangman 5 were you guess of letter at a time and then try to guess the hang man quote, you also get 10 points and a turn to post the new hang man for answering it right. Finally there is quidich and broomstick racing, where you role 2 dice and them to gether and post for you house, and the winner gets 20 points for there house. Also, keep you eye out for challenges from the Headmistress, the prefects, and the HOH. And for all the main point getting places the first post on the thread should explain the game in more detail!
Thats all for now, and welcome to Hogwarts Castle!
As Sarahy isn't on very much, I am going to put together a new list of the Gryffindors, but only of the ones who have posted on the Active members thread...
That is all for now, but Eatanygoodbooks will hopefully be added soon...and I know bhdolphin will be added before the end of July!
Ohh, Fob...but seriously I made some this morning...they were to die for!
Aw, nice! I'm going camping for a week starting tomorrow, so i'm gonna have to settle for burnt bacon and orange juice. >.>
Your lucky. My camping breakfast in my family is a Pop-Tart.
Welcome, Lark! Call me Lily! I am a Ravenclaw prefect. I hope you enjoy your time at Hogwarts Castle!
Wow you guys are devoted, I figured there would be a new Gryff common room by now... So much has changed but I missed you all :)
