Congratulations, this is brilliant news and thoroughly well deserved. The HPA has already done commendable work on so little so I’d love to see how far it can go with this. And well done to all the HP fans who voted.

This is one of the shortest articles I’ve ever read on this site, and by far the best. The last two sentences especially: ‘“This is the only time I have no quotes,” said Andrew Slack, head of the organization. Slack is known for having a quote for anything at any given time.’ So perfect!!!!! It’s also the best because the HPA just WON FREAKING 250 THOUSAND DOLLARS!!!!! I love the Harry Potter fandom. And Nerdfighteria. And the Youtube community! I just… wow.

Guess That Book

The hooded figure raised its head and looked right at Harry -- unicorn blood was dribbling down its front. It got to its feet and came swiftly toward Harry -- he couldn't move for fear.
