I know as little about Harry Potter as Ryan Johnson does about Star Wars, so it never occured to me I'm afraid. :D

And... Bron takes us to 73 participants, and tips us into the SEVENTH version of the book. Are there even seven colours out there to name versions after?!

Huge welcome to everyone taking part for the first time (40% of you!!). If you have any questions, by all means ask them here.

Incidentally -- has anyone else noticed how quiet Jaysen has been this time?!

It's seven apocalypse flavoured colours. So Flaming Pink is right out, along with Sky Blue, Lemon, and any other cheery colour. :twisted:

Jaundice yellow for eyes
Purplish blue lips
Crimson for freshly shed and brown for dried... blood
The sandy colour of sackcloth

I believe these are more than enough colours!
