Harry Potter House Cup

Harry potter month

[So, as you’ve probably seen and heard on the blog, July is Harry Potter Month here at StudentSpyglass.  What this basically means is that myself and a few other bloggers will be sharing our love of Harry Potter!

If you’d like to join in feel free to send me your links to anything (however loosely!) HP related posted throughout July, and I’ll link you up to the schedule.

So, if you’re here, I’m hoping you’re interested in taking part in the Harry Potter Month House Cup! To take part is really really simple:

  1. Leave a comment below with which House you’d like to be in, (I’ll put up a list of Sorted below)
  2. Have fun doing any of the tasks below!
  3. Come back as often as you like and leave a comment with any points you’ve earned, and I’ll add them to your House’s total

What if I want want to change House?
If you decide you’d like to change House, you can do that any time before you’ve earned points (otherwise it becomes too confusing for me to keep totals right!)

Rules are boring – just tell me how to earn the points!
Fair enough ;)

Read a Harry Potter fanfiction: 1 point per chapter (let us know which in the comments!)
Leave a comment on any Harry Potter month post: 2 points
Reading the Pottermore ‘sequel': 2 points
Waching a HP documentary: 3 points
Write HP fanfiction: 3 points per chapter
Watch one of the films: 5 points
Reading one of the Hogwarts Library/Companion books: 6 points
Read one of the books: 10 points
Post as part of Harry Potter month: 10 points
Make a Harry Potter craft/recipe: 15 points
Host a giveaway: 15 points

How do I update my points?
Just leave a comment below with your name, house and any points you’ve earned since you last commented.  Something like this would do perfectly:

Faith (Slytherin)
5 Comments = 10 points
1 Post = 10 points

If you’d rather skip the maths, feel free! Just let me know which tasks you completed and I’ll do my best to add everything up correctly!

Slytherin: 411
Ula (308)
Faith [Earns half points] (86)
Celine (17)

 

Gryffindor: 254
Micheline (238)
Emma (4)
Rinn (12)

    • For your sign up, yes it does ;)

      (but not every time you check in with a points update, hope that makes sense!)

      Happy Harry Potter month to you too!

    I have an intro post and my meme on my blog so is that 20? No idea! Xxxx

  5. Okay, I’m commenting too because it’s the easiest way to keep track!

    Faith (Slytherin: Half points)
    Posts (Schedule, House Cup & MotW) = 30
    Comments (Micheline’s favourite moments, Leah’s MotW, Ula’s film/book comparison) = 6

  6. Awesome :D

    Okay so my POST is 10, then HPMOTW another 10, and comments on Petra’s (2), Mimz’s (2), Leah’s (2), Lee’s (2×2), Kathy’s (2), JC’s (2), Patricia’s (2), Enza’s (2) and your HPMOTW (2).

    So that’s 10 + 10 + 10×2 = 40 points.
    YES BABY! :D That’s BESIDES those 2 points I already have.

    1 on your original post about HP month (way back when – not sure if that one counts),
    then this comment,

    and one on Ula’s post.
    = 6 or 8

  31. Wait, I have a question… any chance we would get points for reading e.g. Rowling’s new “sequel” on Pottermore, or for reading one of the companion books e.g. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them? They’re not quite full books but they’re not fan-fiction either…

    Reply
    • Or watching HP documentaries like say the new Making of Diagon Alley things and such.

      Reply
      • This is a really great question! I think you should absolutely earn points for those so let’s go with:

        – 2 points for the Pottermore ‘sequel’
        – 3 points for HP documentaries
        – 6 points for any of the Hogwarts Library/Companion books

        I’ll add them up into the main post now :)

      I haven’t got your comment on the schedule yet (may well be an issue at my end), so I’ll double check it again tomorrow and for now I’ve updated you with 29 additional points.

      • Hmm that’s very weird, I don’t even have to approve your comments or anything :/ I’ll have a search through the spam just in case though.
