      How to get sorted   10/05/2017

      To find the Sorting Form, click on the "Sort Me!" tab at the top of the page.    Before you go to fill out the form, make sure that you have a username that follows our rules. If you don't, your form will be rejected. You can change your name once yourself, by going to Account Settings -> Display Name. If you've already used your one change, you can request a name change in this topic. Be sure to read the first post in the topic carefully so we can get you updated without any back and forth.   Don't rush to answer the form! There's no prize for sending it in first. Please take your time and fill out the form thoughtfully, so the hat will have the information it needs to put your character in the right house.     Calendar: Sorting Form appears: Thursday, October 5th Sorting Form closes: Friday, November 3rd (No forms will be accepted after this date) The Sorting Ceremony closes: Sunday, November 5th, about 10am Central Time You find out your new house: Sunday, November 5th, 11 am Central Time First day of the new school year: Monday, November 6th   (For reference: Central Time Zone includes Chicago, Illinois)   How to get sorted:   1. Register with a name that follows our rules. The registration agreement explains the rules about names. You can also find them in the Rules.   2. Remember you may only send in one form total for this school year. If you send forms in from multiple accounts, we will not sort ANY of them. Then we have to feel bad about not sorting you. Don't make us feel bad, please.   3. Click on the Sort Me tab and fill out the sorting form as thoroughly as possible. The better we understand your character, the more likely we can put you in the right house. See "How to use the form" below if you're confused. For some in depth information on each house, please check out this topic on sorting. (Note: After you fill out the form, a copy will be PMed to you. Please save that because we delete them from our system after sorting.)   4. Wait for a PM from the Sorting Hat. Be patient, it could take a few days. If you don't receive a PM from the Sorting Hat within 4 or 5 days, contact one of the moderators.   5. If your form is: Accepted: Congratulations! You should now go post in the Sorting Ceremony topic in the New Member resources forum. This is very important. This post is where you'll go to find out what the Sorting Hat had to say about you. Don't skip this step! Rejected: Don't worry, you can still be sorted. Be sure to read the reasons for the rejection carefully, then edit your form (just click on the Get Sorted! link again) to fix the problem. Once you've done that, you can send the form in again. 6. That's it! Once you've gotten your acceptance letter AND posted in the Sorting Ceremony, you're all set. You'll find out where the Sorting Hat put you on Sorting day when you can check the Great Hall for the edited Sorting Ceremony.   How to use the form: The form is pretty straightforward and user friendly. Here are a couple tips: You don't need to fill the whole thing in at one sitting. You can finish one page at a time and save it. Then finish the rest later. Don't use your browser's Back or Forward buttons. Use the buttons in the form to Navigate.  If you don't fill out all the questions on a page, you can't save or move on. If you don't meet the word number requirements in the In Depth section, you can't submit the form. Use the "Check Word Count" buttons to see how many words you've used. If you fill in the wrong answers on the quiz page, you won't be able to submit the form. After you've submitted the form, you can't access it anymore. But if your form is rejected, you'll be able to see it again with your old answers still filled in. Still have questions? Ask here.    Note: Section I: Short Answer Please include a brief explanation with each answer. I'd like to remind you all to include an explanation with all the short answer questions. The answers to those questions aren't very useful for sorting unless you explain them.   Otherwise, we don't have enough information to sort you with. (Translation: we'll have to reject it.)     Many thanks as always to Arianna Wright for her hard work revising and updating the form and to Faraz Memon for initially coding it many years ago. <3

Rumor Wall

76 posts in this topic

In the loo, there was a wall.

 

As walls in Hogwarts go, it was not a particularly strange or unique wall. Simply an expanse of stone, smooth and cool from the lake overhead. But unlike other walls in the school which were occasionally magical, talking, spotted, or otherwise, this wall was covered in graffiti.

 

A variety of handwriting and inks speckled the wall, with snippets of rumors layered upon each other. Here and there one could see dried soap, from where people had tried to Scourgify the wall into oblivion.

 

But here it remained, standing the test of time, a testament to the gossip and social networking of Hogwarts, School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

 

[ooc:]

The Rumor wall is now open! Each year there will be a post noting the new year. Feel free to post rumors, true or otherwise, about characters and relationships.

A toilet. That was all she needed. She hadn't needed to be reminded that there were people around the school with silly things like crushes and obsessions with others. Buddy glared at the wall. Both names were familiar, but she'd been under the impression that Mercutio was... well, not involved with a first year.

After taking care of business, she walked over to the wall and stared at the words. How odd... Hailey, her classmate, didn't seem to mind outing herself. It was almost foolishly brave.

Buddy scribbled out the gross amount of hearts and simply wrote in their place:


HAILEY ROCKS + MERCUTIO BATES = <3 <3 <3 !!!!!

He's older. He's smarter. He's stronger. Become an equal and you might stand a chance.

Kimber was getting tired of this. He wasn't fully sure why he was here. Maybe he'd wandered in on accident? He'd never tell.

 

Mercutio + Desmond

Obviously Des is the only one Merc will ever love.

Kelly stared, baffled, at the rumor wall, which seemed dominated by an obsession with Mercutio Bates. She was thoroughly confused beyond all measures. Mercutio, he was a nice guy and all, but he wasn't particularly handsome or spectacular in any way, so why were all these girls obsessed with him?

 

There were only two viable reasons:

1. He'd written all these comments himself, disguised handwriting in various ways.

2. He'd doused the school with love potions.

 

Two seemed more plausible, and Kelly was happy she hadn't gotten a whiff of it. She, however, thought she ought to make people aware.. it was her duty..

 

And so she wrote.

 

WARNING HOGWARTS: YOU MUST BEWARE OF MERCUTIO'S STRONG LOVE POTIONS. proof-this wall

Bryony was in the bathroom actually going to the toilet between classes.

 

It was then that she paused to look at the rumour wall. It was interesting so see what was apparently going on around the school.

 

She sighed as her eyes scanned over it. Everyone's obsession with Mercutio was getting irksome at this stage. sure he was good looking, but she didn't see why everybody was so obsessed with him. It was actually sort of freaky the lengths some people seemed to be going.

 

She shook her head, drying her hands. And left without adding to the wall.

Rosie Roux is the best
- Dorothy Talbot


Dottie had not written that, Rosie had. In her left hand because she was clever at forgery and knew people would figure out she had written the complimentary graffiti if she used her regular hand. They didn't have CSI in pureblood land, but she was aware of these truth avoiding methods.

With her right hand, Rosie wrote her response:

 

Thank you Dottie! Love you too ❤
- Rosie


She had like two friends and a big ego, don't judge her attempts to look more popular and feel loved D:

You couldn't have missed that dance when they were all over the tables in great hall. So it was no surprise it ended up on the Wall:

 

 

Savvy & Maks and their hot

Argentine tango!

Borrowing the thickest marker she could find, Addison stomped up to the haunted bathroom to leave the newest message about Mercutio Bates on the rumor wall.

 

HEY ALL YOU HATERS, BACK OFF.

MERCUTIO BATES IS MY BOYFRIEND.

LITERALLY. GO ASK HIM IF YOU WANT.

IF YOU'VE GOT A PROBLEM WITH

THAT, TELL IT TO MY FACE IN THE GREAT HALL.

- ADDISON TOFT, GRYFFINDOR SECOND YEAR

 

Capping the marker, she nodded to herself. The message was clear and unambiguous - nothing about it could be mis-interpreted. Before leaving, she raised her magical camera and snapped a photo for Mercutio to see.

Dorothy stared at the black marked writing, after just visiting the Great Hall and finding it out for herself, she'd wished she'd seen the message prior. It would surely have saved her the shock. With a sad little smile, Dorothy took out her own pink marker and decided to write beside it.

 

please respect their relationship, people


Merlin knew there were some that surely wouldn't.

Chiron couldn't believe his eyes when he read the large, bold black writing! Although if Merc did play away, Toft would be more then capable of removing his man hood then other girls he knew!

 

Let's see him stray from Toft!

New balls please!

Happy, Chiron felt he should actually try talking to the lad, see if the tales had been true?!

Dorothy groaned and slapped her hand to her forehead out of sheer irritation. Didn't people understand that Mercutio was not a piece of meat? Goodness people, control yourselves!

CONTROL YOURSELVES. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.

Chiron went back to see if anything new had been put up and was rather fearful for whom ever wrote next and he had to leave them something.

 

Whom ever made the jib about Toft,

Run!!! Don't look back and always

keep moving, change your name and

never seek out a crowd!

Kermit was getting annoyed. Mercutio Bates was his team mate [thus awesome and a role model] and Addison Toft was his explorer friend. He grabbed the pen, and put a circle around words written in a pink marker.

 

please respect their relationship, people

<---- this person makes sense. listen to them! seriously, people start dating all the time. i think they happen to make an adorable couple.

There was yet more romance drama? Ugh. Rosie had officially had it.

NO ONE CARES


She scrawled the comment under the comment about Addison lying about dating Mercutio. Though she agreed with the claim Addison was a troll, a healthy dose of blood prejudice allowing Rosie to see eye to eye with the otherwise delusional girl on that front.

Bathrooms were normally where Al drew the line at breaking rules. The girls' room was for girls and the boys' room was for boys. But he had heard that this one girls room hosted the rumor wall. Also girls tended to avoid this bathroom for some reason.

 

He went to the rumor wall to see what the juicy gossip was. Apparently, this Mercutio person could not decide to who to date. Well the only Mercutio that he knew was the quid player and he had advice for the boy.

 

 

Mercutio should probably just focus on himself. He's not that hot anyway.

 

 

There that should stir the pot. Job done.

She had some teacher hate to put up. Using her neatest writing she wrote the following :

 

Professor Knaggs isn't very nice :( - HR

 

 

Professor Gainsborough is very vain. Be should be called Professor Vainsborough ! - HR

 

Haha !

Kay, so, back in the common room, where she’d first dreamed up this big ol’ plan of hers, sneaking off to the rumor wall seemed like a way better idea than it did right now. Flynn’s wand dangled limply in her hand, forgotten, as she poured over the jumbled heap of messages. Dude, Mercutio was way, way more popular than she’d realized. And since when were he and Addison dating?! Jeez, she was so far out of the loop it was kinda sad.

Whatevz, she could lament her pathetic social life later. It was mission time. Flynn muttered an incantation and jabbed her wand at a blank spot on the wall. It now read:

WANTED : INFORMATION ON WHEREABOUTS OF MISSING FOURTH YEAR GRYFFINDORS

REWARD -

She paused here, checking her pockets for loose change.

REWARD - - 15 SICKLES

That oughta do it. Time to scram. Well...maybe just two more notes.

Flynn Daniels has really pretty hair.

live that forbidden forest life #yolo

Perfect.

Feeling rather upset with himself, the young eagle had to show people he was truly sorry for what he had done! So he pulled out his wand and begun to write on the wall in big letters.

 

 

Chiron Drakon is SORRY!

I am a fool & an idiot!

Have a good day!

Feeling he best get off to class, he quickly made his exit!
