I'm trying to locate the timetable for Gryffindor First Years. I can't see it in the Tower.

 

Also, is there a guide to BB coding that is available on this forum? I see people using highlighting but I can't get it to work for me. :P

 

Thank you <3

Hi Alicia. A Gryffindor prefect can guide you towards the timetable in your common room. But according to the one in the Hufflepuff common room, first years have Astronomy on Monday, Potions on Wednesday, Flying on Thursday and Herbology on Friday.
A guide to coding can be found here. Highlighting like this, is done as follows :

I hope this helped <3

Question...

I know Hogsmeade forum is open permanently OOC, but if I wanted to stay IC, what weekends would it be?

IC Hogsmeade weekends are not currently tied to specific IC dates on VH. If you want a specific date, I'd suggest you go ahead and declare whichever day you want to be a weekend as one in your roleplay. Otherwise, you can do what I do and vaguely reference when the weekend is taking place (I often refer to the month rather than a specific weekend). Congratulations on making it to third year!

Thanks. I know in canon Hogsmeade was limited to certain weekends, and I couldn't recall which month the first one took place (October, maybe?). That first Hogsmeade trip is what makes third year special. ^_^

I did some digging and according to HP wiki, at least, in the books the first trip does indeed take place in early October. Hope that will give you a general idea for that first trip setting. :wub:

This is here because it’s a “silly” question  more than because it’s a small question.

So I have a question about Phillip’s siblings.   Bear with me because there is a lot of introduction in order for the question to make sense – the question is fairly simple, I promise – pretty sure this is just me having a brainfart and forgetting how maths works.

So, Anthony (Phillip’s older brother) was a VH27 Ravenclaw and I figured out his birthday as being Halloween of the appropriate year which meant 2017 if I read the ‘when’s your character’s birthday’ right  – that works fine.   There were no problems there.

Then I sorted Phillip and he was easy enough to work out because one)Phillip started Hogwarts year after Anthony’s seventh year and two)I knew I needed a summer birthday because I needed room for other things for continuity reasons.  So Phillip ended up with August 23rd as a birthday. 

Phillip’s older siblings were a bit more difficult since I knew I needed them to be a)NOT Phillip’s co-triplets, b)in the same academic year to Phillip and c)not at Hogwarts and d)for neither of them to be boys.  Again, for continuity reasons that I won’t go into here.   

After some thought, I realized that what I needed here was twin girls who were a)eleven months older than Phillip and b)squibs.   That solved that problem because I figured that I needed a Sep 2024 birthday for the girls and an Aug 2025 birthday for Phillip.  Again, that’s providing that I did the maths right and read the ‘when is my character’s birthday’ thread correctly.   

Phillip’s little siblings, however, aren’t as easy as that.   I needed a way of separating these twins temporarily but both to end up at Hogwarts for again, continuity reasons with something else that I’m not going to get into and I figured out how to do this.  Namely, take advantage of how the school year works and place their birthdays straddling the Aug 31st/Sep 1st divide so older twin (girl, if you care) born shortly before midnight on 31st August and younger twin (boy, if you care) born shortly after midnight on 1st Sep.    

Great – so I have the days and months of the younger twins’ birthdays sorted out at this point.  The problem is that I have no idea which year they should be born in order to make the girl-twin start the year after Phillip’s seventh year and for the boy-twin to start Hogwarts when his twin sister is a second year (so boy-twin would be starting two years after Phillip’s seventh year).   I’m sure I’m going to go “D’oh! Of course!” when I’m told hence this question’s placement in the no matter how quick/silly thread.  Anyone know?

For the girl twin to be sorted the same year Phillip becomes an alumnus and the boy twin to be sorted the year after, they will have to be born:

Girl twin: 31st August, 2032
Boy twin: 1st September, 2032


I just continued to add to the 'When is my character's birthday?' timeline. If you need to double check my math to be certain, here it is:

Phillip: 23rd August 2025

1st. VH34 - On or after 1st September 2024 and before 1st September 2025
2nd. VH35 - On or after 1st September 2025 and before 1st September 2026
3rd. VH36 - On or after 1st September 2026 and before 1st September 2027
4th. VH37 - On or after 1st September 2027 and before 1st September 2028
5th. VH38 - On or after 1st September 2028 and before 1st September 2029
6th. VH39 - On or after 1st September 2029 and before 1st September 2030
7th. VH40 - On or after 1st September 2030 and before 1st September 2031
Alu. VH41 - On or after 1st September 2031 and before 1st September 2032 <-- girl twin
Al2. VH42 - On or after 1st September 2032 and before 1st September 2033 <-- boy twin

Thank you!   That is genuinely really helpful!

The maths working through is useful too.
