Kitchen Witchery

By: Emma Peel

What’s a kitchen witch?

By now we’ve all seen some pretty hilarious kitchen witch dolls. You may even have one hanging in your kitchen. While this is probably the first thing that spring to mind when most people hear the term kitchen witch, I’d like to lodge a formal complaint: I am a kitchen witch, the genuine, authentic, 100% real deal. I am certainly not , constructed of a bit of pantyhose, fabric scraps and mono-filament wire! (more…)

A Dark Wizard, a Peanut Eating Phoenix, and a Strict Dress Code.

By: Chardonnay Perrignon

A dark evil wizard tried to burn down the leaky but was foiled by the sheer willpower of the unamused. Amazing!

Fashion at Hogwarts has been stifled by a decree from the headmistress reaffirming the traditional and old-fashioned standards of dress, especially for the young ladies. It is the young men at the school that seem to be disappointed by the enforcements of the new standards of decorum, unsurprisingly.

Ask Miss Merlot

Miss Merlot Zymurgy is the Barmaid at the Trolls Head Pub in KnockOff Alley, Runs Errands for Deputy Headmistress Wylder Pan, and was raised in a Slytherin Pureblood household of impeccable manners. Please Address your owls with questions regarding etiquitte, manners, or other problems in your wizarding life to her.

Dear Miss Merlot,

I’m afraid one of my teachers in a vampire. What should I do?
Signed,
Meek in Hufflepuff

Dear Meek,

Yes, I know that some teachers ask you to do so much work for them it seems like they are asking you for blood! However, this does *not* mean that your professors are Vampires! According to the ministry of magic, vampires are not even allowed to carry wands, so it would make it very difficult for a vampire to teach a class of any substance at Hogwarts.
