HARPs contest – magical creatures everyone would want as a pet

IMG_1526

Hello witches or wizards,

I know, I know I said that my last post was going to be my last HARPs post. But I came up with a great idea. So…

I’m going to list some of the magical creatures everyone would want as a pet.

Here it is:

The first on my list is the Bowtruckle. If you saw the first fantastic beasts movie you’d understand why. In the movie Newt has a Bowtruckle named Pickett. Pickett is so sweet in the movie and so cute ❤ . If I could have a Bowtruckle I would totally have one.

The second on my list is the Occamy. It’s just such a beautiful creature, with it’s wings and it’s snake-like appearance. And when you see it in fantastic beasts you see they’re just adorable.

The third on my list is the Mooncalf. They’re all cute and I think that if you cuddle them it will be one of the best cuddle you ever had. I think you can also play with them. Their character is a little bit like dogs.

The fourth on my list is the Hippogriff. It’s really nice to you (if you’re nice to him (thinking about Draco)). I think it would be so great to fly on it. It’s also a really beautiful creature.

The fifth on my list is the Niffler. I know it steals a lot of things, but I think it would be great to have it as a pet. And everybody loves a Niffler. Also, with a Niffler you would never be bored it would be really fun.

I already have two magical creatures as pets:

That was it, this was really my last HARPs post. I hope you liked it. Here are the others magical creatures that everyone would love as a pet that I didn’t mention and they’re lots of other one. If you want I could do a second post like this.

I hope you enjoyed reading my post.

Bye, -ChH

HARPs contest – short story

IMG_5577

Hello witches or wizards,

Today I wrote a short story for you guys and it’s Beauxbatons related. I hope you like it.

Here it is:

IMG_1365

Chloé Clarckeiken

Once upon a time there was a girl named Chloé Clarckeiken. On the 15thof February she was at home reading. That evening her father was making pasta with pesto and parmesan. Her mother was getting some bread at the bakery.

‘I’m done with cooking.’ said her father, ‘Can you help me set the table?’

‘Yes,’ answered Chloé, ‘I think it will be hard to wait for mom, it smells so delicious.’

She got into the kitchen and helped her father putting the plates on the table. Then, just like that, she didn’t feel well. She got to the sink and threw up.

‘Are you all right?’ asked her father.

‘Yes,’ she answered, ‘I think I’m just hungry.’

‘Then we shouldn’t wait for mom.’ He said.

When he said the word ‘mom’ she threw up again.

‘Mom.’ she said quietly.

‘What’s wrong?’ he asked, ‘Is there something wrong with mom?’

‘We need to go to the bakery.’ She said without answering his question.

‘Okay,’ he said. You could hear in his voice that he was worried, even if he tried to hide it.

They went to the car, got in and drove to the bakery. The door at the bakery was half open. Chloé jumped out of the car, ran into the bakery and saw her mom lying on the floor.

‘Mom!’ she screamed, ‘Mom, wake up!’

Her father came running in after her when he heard Chloé. You could see the tears running from his eyes while he tried to reanimate her.

‘Please, mom, wake up.’ whispered Chloé one last time with a broken voice. A tear drop rolled down on her cheek.

But she didn’t wake up.

When the ambulance arrived later that night, it was hard for Chloé. The police said her mother had had a heart attack. Chloé thought it wasn’t right, but she didn’t really think about it that much.

The next two weeks were hard. She spent most of the days of the first week in her bed with her dog Scotty crying or listening to the favorite French song of her mom Mistral Gagnant – M’assoir sur un banc 5 minutes avec toi…‘ – she sang.

Then came the funeral. It was a beautiful funeral, and Chloé finally said goodbye to her mom.

‘Chloé,’ said her father after the funeral, ‘I need to talk to you. It’s time you know.’

‘Know what?’ asked Chloé. Her father took her into the car, everybody already left.

‘We’re not a normal family.’ He said, ‘We’re not muggles.’

‘Muggles?’ said Chloé not understanding the word.

‘We’re wizards,’ said her father, ‘And we lived in the wizarding world in France. But Mom had an enemy there, she threatened to kill us. So we came here a year ago, hoping she wouldn’t find us. But we were wrong.’

‘If we only came here one year ago, how come I don’t remember anything?’ asked Chloé.

‘We made you forget everything.’ He answered.

‘There is a wizarding world in France?’

‘Yes. And a school, Beauxbatons it’s called.’

‘So, my mom died two weeks ago. I’m devastated. And you are saying we’re wizards from France with an enemy threatening to kill us.’

‘I know it’s hard, and it will take some time to realize it all. But I thought you needed to know.’

‘Yeah, it’s normal. Of course, I get it,…’ she said sarcastically.

‘Chloé, you can talk to me, you know that?’

‘I need to be alone.’ She said and she got out of the car.

She thought about what her father just said: ‘A witch?’ she said to herself. ‘I knew mom didn’t die from a heart attack.’ She continued.

‘I need to fight this enemy, I need to learn to fight this enemy.’

She went back to the car, her father was waiting for her. She made a choice but didn’t say a word to her father in the car ride. When they got home she began to talk.

‘Now it’s time I talk to you.’ She said.

‘What do you need to tell me?’ asked her father.

‘It’s actually about what you need to tell me. Who is this enemy?’

‘Linda Leempunt – a very powerful witch.’ He answered.

‘Why does she hate mom?’

‘Your mom was a reporter and had found out who was behind all the fake news in the world today. It was Linda. Linda used magic to convince ordinary people that fake news was true with the objective to allow powerful wizards to control muggles. About a year ago your mom was about to publish it when Linda came and threatened to kill us. So we decided hide. Your mom was contacted by people from the wizarding world about a month ago. They also were reporters. I think Linda knew your mom was contacted, so she had her killed.’

‘Did mom say anything to these reporters?’ asked Chloé.

‘No, because Linda threatened us too. Mom wanted to keep us safe.’

‘I need to learn how to beat Linda.’ Said Chloé finally.

‘Chloé, you can’t. You’re too young.’

‘I need to learn to defend myself if she attacks me.’

‘That’s a good point,’ said her father, ‘I’ll learn you how to defend yourself.’

‘But, what about that school. Bobatonss, I think it’s called?’

‘Beauxbatons,’ corrected her father, ‘You can only go to that school if you get an acceptance letter. First we need to go back to the wizarding world in France.’

P1000394

Three weeks later they were in France. Chloé learned Magic History from her father and some spells. Her father needed to ask permission to the ministry so that Chloé could cast those spells.

First she learned from her father and in September she learned from Beauxbatons. Linda could come now and do anything she wants. Chloé was ready and could defend herself.

Or not … ?

I dedicate this story to my mother who helped me set up my blog.

That was my short story. I hope you liked it. This was my last HARPs post, it was a really fun contest 😉 😀

It’s about a boy that discovers he’s a wizard. (You know the story. 😉 )

My second is the book from John Green, The Fault in Our Stars.

It’s a great book about a girl that has cancer and meets a boy that had cancer.

My third favorite book is also from John Green, Paper Towns.

It’s about a boy that goes looking for the girl he’s in love with after she disappeared.

P1000348

My fourth favorite is from Nicola Moriarty, The Fifth Letter.

It’s a great book about four friends. Three of them write one letter, except one that writes two.

P1000355

My fifth favorite is from J.R.R. Tolkien, Lord of the Rings.

It’s about a ring that has a lot of power and that has to be destroyed before it falls into the hand of the enemy.

P1000349

My sixth favorite is from Rick Riordan, Percy Jackson (the first one, I haven’t read the others yet)

It’s a great book about a boy that discovers that he’s a half-god and experiences many adventures.

P1000352

My seventh favorite is again from John Green, Looking for Alaska.

It’s about a boy looking for a girl. (I can’t say to much because I don’t wanna spoil anything)

P1000350

And finally, my eighth favorite is from John Green (I had a John Green period this year 😉 :-D), Turtles all the way down.

It’s a great book about a girl that has difficulties with her mind and learns to control it.

I haven’t read this one yet but it’s the next one I’m gonna read:

P1000351

It’s from Karen M. McManus, One of Us is Lying.

It’s about five people that have detention, and one gets killed. Who killed him? (Don’t answer this question it’s just to make it exciting 😉 😀 )

Thank you Life Like a Galaxy Girl for recommending this book. I really want to read it.

That was it. I hope you liked, 😉 😀

HARPs contest – Harry Potter characters

giphy-17

Hello witches wizards,

This weeks HARPs topic is ‘List your favorite_______’. So I’m gonna list my favorite Harry Potter characters. 😉 😀

My all time favorite Harry Potter character is (I think you know it already),

Hermoine Granger!

She’s my favorite character because she’s strong and shows what girls can do.

My all time favorite character from the boys, and my second favorite is,

Scorpius Malfoy!

Because he’s so nice, and he’s just such a great character.

My third favorite is, Luna Lovegood!

She’s one of my favorite because everybody has a little bit of Luna inside themselves.

My fourth is, Neville Longbottom!

Because (*spoiler*) without him there wouldn’t be any wizarding world left. He’s also a great character.

And my fifth favorite character is,  Severus Snape!

He’s one of my favorite because he shows what love is.

That was it. It was a short post but there’s another one coming up soon.

Don’t forget to be youself!

Bye, -ChH

HARPs points: 5 (I got two words that star with Y: your and yourself)

HARPs contest – encouraging post

Hello witches or wizards,

Today’s post is an house encouraging post. So here are some encouraging words for each house.

IMG_4039

Gryffindor:

You can’t always be strong, but you can be brave.

It’s better to be a lion for a day than a sheep all your life.

P1000058.JPG

Play life like Gryffindor plays quidditch. Always win.

IMG_4036

Ravenclaw:

Wisdom begins in wonder.

An eagle uses the negative energy of a storm to fly even higher.

For Ravenclaw the cleverest would always be the best. 😉

IMG_4037

Slytherin:

Ambition is believing in yourself even when no one does.

Even if a snake isn’t poisonous, it should pretend to be venomous.

In Slytherin you’ll make your real friends.

IMG_4038

Hufflepuff:

You will never regret being kind.

P1000106

Be a badger, don’t let anything come in your way.

Those patient Hufflepuffs are true and unafraid of toil.

I also have three quotes for our team mascot the Ladybug:

Advice from a ladybug:  Don’t let little things bug you. Spot new opportunities. Spend time in your garden. Be well-rounded. Be simply beautiful!

Be like a ladybug. Dress in red and stroll through the flowerbed.

Give a hug ladybug! 😀 😉

That was it I hope you liked it. 😉 😀
