Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I returned to MTS, but I won't make anything special.

I decided to share one lot that has been in my game for long time, and that's another version of Hogwarts castle, but this version is made for Harry and Hermione.

We all know what Hogwarts is: A huge and very beautiful castle, which is used as school of magic.

I have already made it two times, but now I was trying to make it exactly as it's seen in movies, only using base game.
It's based on my previous version of Hogwarts:

And this version is dedicated to Harry and Hermione / Dan and Emma, cause in my mind they are true and only love couple at Hogwarts, just look at second, third or fourth movie, or read that books.

Their both names start with 'H', and they meet at Hogwarts Express which also starts with 'H'. Hermione was the one who always took Harry's hand, and she also hugged him a lot of times. She was always there to help him, and he was always there to protect her.

In second year it was Hermione who was petrified and it was Harry who killed Basilisk and destroyed the curse. At end she hugged him with such love in her eyes.

At third year, they shared a wonderful moment of traveling through the time together.

It was Harry who raised his mouth when he saw her at Yule ball, and it were Viktor Krum and Rita Skeeter who always thought that these two are in love.

And Hermione was always worried for him, and she was always screaming his name whenever they were in danger. Even Dumbledore asked Harry 'Are you with Hermione?' in fifth or sixth year. And not to mention that it was Harry who was very jealous because he didn't became an assistant with Hermione.

Sadly, J.K. Rowling ruined my dreams about perfect ending, but I didn't stop to believe in their romance

That's because the bravest wizard and the smartest witch are perfect love couple

If you agree with me, visit these sites:

Now, you can see the pictures of creation that I have made just for them:

Moving stairs and view through the Clock Tower window, although it doesn't really have a clock

Clock Tower, Entrance hall across the viaduct, Great Hall and Towers which are near the Greenhouses

Greenhouses, Arch which is leading to Paved Courtyard, Fountain in Clock Tower Courtyard and Owlery

Castle itself is not very big, but it has a lot of cc, mostly walls by me. I have created 20 different walls with random pictures and portraits just for Moving Stairs!

Also this time castle is unfurnished, I really didn't have time to furnish it, and this is the first time in my life to upload an unfurnished lot. But you can decorate it in your own way
The only classroom that I have made is one on the ground floor, in top right corner, near the owlery, it's meant to be the transfigurations classroom (my favorite magic subject!)

I tried to create it as best as I could, and I'm proud of the result, and the only things that are missing are the Draw Bride and Hagrid's Hut, but I really didn't have enough space.

Lot requires: no eps, no sps, just base game and many cc, mostly walls by me and some user created objects.

Let the Magic of this amazing castle take you once again!
Harry and Hermione forever!

Does anyone else see two glowing blue objects? I tried downloading it again to correct the problem, but it doesn't seem to do anything. I believe they are named pillars or something.

Edit 1: It seems the objects "Hight Battlement," "Battlement," and "Battlement Cormerpiece" have no textures... hopefully they'll be in the original source.

Edit 2: The textures are also not in the original source.... oh well, it adds a little appeal to the lot.

Stephsim said it beautifully, and I only read the first page of comments, so if I repeat something already said please forgive me. I just wanted to say that I never saw the Harry Hermione thing and I don't see why we can't discuss it without getting upset because you saw it and I didnt. I mean aside from the fact this is not an HP discussion board, I just feel when you post something like that you have to expect people to want to discuss or debate it in some way. It didn't upset me to read that you think they should have been together but I did find it interesting enough to want to comment on it. It really is a beautiful lot. I just got back into TS2 and am now inspired to go all HP with it! And all I wanna say on the subject of H/H is that, I don't think JKR even intended to go into love stories like she did. Or maybe she felt that they were too young, but while there felt like no romantic plots in any of the first two or three books, it was stated early on that Ginny although younger than the main group had a crush on Harry. I just think we can love people in all ways without being in love with them. They obviously share a closeness and a love for each other, but for me it was just never romantic, it was more like family. Both being raised as muggles, they had a lot in common, but for me it's Ron and Hermione forever!! Anyways hope I didn't upset anyone, just wanted to put it out there that some people do like how it ended and who everyone ended up with. Although before ginny grew on me I was all for Harry and Cho, but now looking back I find Cho insufferable and think he would have been miserable with her. Great upload, you inspired my first comment, and hey if I ever want some drama in my HP sim world, then I could have Harry and Hermione engage in a brief affair, why not?
