PixieStone111 is in da house!

Look who got into the pre-registration for Pottermore this morning! The question was ridiculously easy, so much so that I thought it was a trick question at first.  When I typed in the correct answer and added it to the link to the Quill site, it kept going to Sony’s website and I thought for sure […]
