Event: Black Tower Valentines!

Recommended Posts


:wub: :wub: :wub: Welcome to the Black Tower Valentines Event! :wub: :wub: :wub:


And just in time for Valentine's Day (albeit barely)! :laugh: I made sure to include something for both the Lighties (unfortunately :tongue:) and my dear Shadows :wub: with this event! 

Here's how it works:
If you are a Shadow, you can write a Valentine's Day poem or haiku to any of the Forsaken or to any BT Member (another Shadow member preferably :baalzamon:).
If you are a Lightie, you can write a Valentine's Day poem or haiku to any of the "Good Guys" or to any BT member (and hopefully none of you have been too friendly with any Shadow anyhow :laugh: ).
You get 5 points for each submission you make, via a post in this thread. You can make a maximum of 5 contributions for a grand total of 25 points. Not bad huh? And if the right people really like it, who knows, you may even earn more points. The event will last for the whole month of February to give people time to get their submissions in!
It's that simple! Consider adding a photo for an extra personal touch :wink: ! And that's it, it is as simple of that. So let's make the most out of this faux holiday and express our love for the dark or light :smile: Can't wait to see your submissions!

Hello soft kitty

Care to share chocolate trifle

And break this game's rules?


There's always one...


Unless you find me a passage about a soft kitty somewhere in the book and quote it here including book and page number... :rolleyes:

Shadows are black

But this one is blue

Hardly evil at all

Her smile shows through


I am a bad poet

Oh how I know it

But the lady would break the rules

And a kitty is powerless to refuse naughtiness


Lol sorry, our heat is broken and I'm all kerfuffled.

    • Rooting for you!! *snugglebites for good luck*
    • Another fairly major difference is that Hogwarts is 'just' a school, much like Beauxbatons, Durmstrang etc are 'just' schools. Wizarding kids go there to learn magic but when they graduate, they are no longer part of the school except as alumni. Like the same for us - high school becomes a fond memory for them. They leave school and they go out into the world and get jobs -  in shops or at the Ministry of Magic, etc. Hogwarts doesn't pay their way or direct their movements.   Also, the political / government seat of power aren't the schools themselves, it's the Ministry of Magic that is the government / power seat (in England, anyway - other countries have their own Magical governments).   The White Tower, on the other hand, is the political seat of power for Tar Valon and the Westlands. Girls go there to learn to channel, but once they 'graduate' to become Aes Sedai, they don't leave to get jobs elsewhere. They do go out into the world but all the work they do is always on behalf of the White Tower. The White Tower pays their salaries, etc. I suppose you could say that the White Tower trains them up, and then becomes their employer, while Hogwarts students have to go out into the world and gain employment elsewhere.   I guess what I'm trying to say is, Hogwarts sole function is to teach students - it's just a school. The White Tower is so much more than that.    At the end of the day, Dumbledore is 'just' a principal - his position in the wizarding world is not equal to the Amyrlin Seat in Randland. The Minister for Magic's position IS equal to that of the Amyrlin Seat. Dumbledore is politically powerful, that's made fairly clear. Fudge and other Ministers have felt threatened by him, mostly because they know of the support Dumbledore would have from the wizarding community if he decided to overthrow the current Minister in order to take that position for himself. Also because the Ministers know he could do a better job of governing the Wizarding world. But he chooses not to; therefore, he is not as powerful as the White Tower's "Principal": the Amyrlin Seat.   As for the White Tower size vs Hogwarts size, according to wot.fandom, the White Tower is 600 feet or 183metres tall. I'm not sure, but I think Hogwarts at its highest peak might reach that, but as a whole, the building might be much shorter. More sprawling than tall. I think the White Tower must be larger overall though, because the novice quarters can hold 400 novices, and the Accepted quarters can hold 200 accepted. With seven more floors allocated to the seven ajahs, surely there's enough room for another five hundred Aes Sedai - though that figure could be closer to one thousand?? Don't know...   How many Hogwarts students are there at any given time? Five - six hundred? And only about twenty - thirty teachers... If that's anything to go by, then surely the White Tower is larger than Hogwarts...   Interesting topic, thanks for raising it 🙂
