THE WIZARDING WORLD'S #1 NEWS OUTLET OF CHOICE


SIX MORE DEAD AND AUTHORITIES BEMUSED, ARE MUGGLES NEXT?

As the uneasy fog drifted across London early this morning, news toiled in regarding the deaths of six more Witches and Wizards in Knockturn Alley.

The scene was evocative of the same black magic used days before Halloween late last year. Similar to the attack on October 26th, all victims were found with the same distinct dark mark branded into their skulls and their bodies nearly unidentifiable. (According to a source at St. Mungo’s, they have been working diligently to identify the bodies and will notify the families shortly.)

Muggle At The Ministry...Delightful Chaos?

A simple heating charm replaces the function of the Muggles’ battery, allowing wizards and witches to enjoy the benefits of smoking with fewer side effects. Though the long-term risks of vaping are unknown, many witches and wizards have turned to them as a slightly-healthier form of smoking.

“The vape juice, or little liquids that go in , come

in almost any flavor you can imagine. We’ve even begun adding wizard-exclusive flavors to our selection,” says Stanley Shunpike, co-owner of Vexing Vapors. “I started seeing more and more people with ‘em on the Knight Bus, and saw an opportunity.
