February. The month of love. Valentine’s Day is almost upon us and with it, the Hearty Party. All around the castle is talk of dates and romance. But what about those of us who feel our destinies do NOT await us at the dance? What about those with no interest in romance or flowers? What do you do with the time instead? The Owl Post has a few suggestions.
Some of you might prefer to be alone, and that’s okay. Why not spend the day treating yourself? Bribe a prefect for their bathroom password and have a self indulgent spa day! [Trust us, it’s worth it.] Want something more cosy? Head to your probably empty common room and claim a couch to yourself. Grab some candies and do whatever it is that makes you happy.
Death by Chocolate
Eat all the chocolate you can find, doesn’t have to be yours… well, it probably does so maybe worth sneaking around to find that fabled secret passage to Hogsmeade or find a 17 year old to pop to Honeydukes! Or pester Marigold to owl her aunt.
Have an Anti-Hearty Party
Who says couples have to have all the fun this month? Why not get together with your single mates and celebrate friendship or being alone? Stock up on
stolen treats and play some games.
Research the art of voodoo
For.. anyone who turned you down, or that rival for your crushes attention. While being alone during the dance isn’t necessarily a negative thing, at least this would be something constructive for those of you of a different mindset.
Prank the couples who don’t have the decency to tone down the PDA! Harmless pranks, of course, it’s more amusing to confuse than it is to abuse! Have a good laugh about it.
Goth it u
Pretend to be in mourning and dress in all black. Channel the lost loves of the long deceased, wail at every given opportunity, carry a lacy ‘kerchief tucked up your sleeves
Trash the Dress Party
Anti-Hearty doesn’t sound your style? You could always wear that nice dress you bought. With some modifications of course. Trash it! Tear it! Rip it up! Make it grungy and make it punk! That said, please make it modest.
Pillow Fort Party
If you have a death wish, you could always show up and keep Priaulx company in the Astronomy Tower with a pillow fort.
