As your headmistress, I feel that it is my duty to install some rules. It's all fun and games until someone gets their eyeball poked out by the Whomping Willow. Just to ensure that all students have read and understood the handbook, I ask that you add a comment to the bottom of this page stating "I have read and understood the handbook guidelines." Great. Now you try it.

A failure to abide by these rules, or the ones that appear when you mouse over the textbox will result in a warning. Every member will receive 3 warnings before he/she is permanently banned from the group.

And now, it's time for the rules:

400. The house never did fall on Professor Umbridge's sister, nor is she suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder as a result.

517. When surrounded by Death Eaters I will not brandish my wand like a sword and shout "Aye! Avast!"

518. Jumping up on a table during dinner and singing "La Vie Boheme" is more likely to confuse my enemies than chase them out of the Great Hall. Besides, I probably won't have anyone else join in, which takes some of the fun out of it.

519. Attempting to sell your soul to the Dark Lord is forbidden.

520. - So is selling anyone else's soul.

521. Draco Malfoy's name is not Westley, nor the Dread Pirate Roberts, and I should stop referring to him as such.

I may not write notes to Filch saying " Was wondering if you could sweep up in the dungeon with me, you sexy beast." And sign it "your master, Severus".

544. Especially if you put "p.s.Bring a first year this time, slave." at the end.

545. I am not allowed to post "I am hot for hippogriffs!" on Hagrid's door.

546. Luna doesn't like it when you place her sneakers on top of doorways, it's not amusing anymore.

Disregard for one of the rules stated above or an example of bad manners will result in you being hung from the dungeon by your ears. Trust me, I know where you live. No, I'm kidding. You will receive a warning. After three warnings, you will be permanently removed from the group.

And there you have it. All 546 rules. I was thinking we might need a few more...
