New students: when you go to fill out the Sorting Form, we recommend you switch to another theme. Right now the form is not very easy to read on Castle theme. You can find the theme switcher at the bottom left corner of every page.

      How to get sorted   05/13/2017

      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: Saturday, May 13th Sorting Form closes: Friday, June 9th (No forms will be accepted after this date) The Sorting Ceremony closes: Sunday, June 11th, about 10am Central Time You find out your new house: Sunday, June 11th, 11 am Central Time First day of the new school year: Monday, June 12th   (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

1 post in this topic

The Basics:

Name: Abi Helios (Abi isn't short for anything!)

House: Ravenclaw!

Birthday: September 18th

Hometown: Ley Hill, Buckinghamshire, England (though he was born in Canada, this is the only home he's ever known)

Pureblood/half blood/muggle born: Muggle as far as he knows (so far), but this isn't true. He's actually half-blood.

Five words that best describe your character: Zealous, artistic, curious, introverted, thoughtful.

 

Appearance:

Hair Color: Black (definitely not purple!)

Hair Style: To his waist, as it has never been cut. Usually wears it in twin braids, but has been seen wearing it down or in a lone ponytail every now and again.

Eye color: Bright green.

Height: Currently quite short! 4'5 or so, the poor thing.

Other distinguishing details: Fairly feminine, which isn't helped by his choice of hairstyle. ;) He's a bit pudgy, but not to the point of looking wretched. Of a darker skintone, just enough to look like a tanned beauty queen. Always seen wearing two feathers in his hair, and has a habit or wearing skirts/kilts. Someone doesn't know what it's like to be a boy!

 

Family:

Father's name: Sh'yaen Helios

Brief description (occupation, blood, etc): Sh'yaen is currently in search of Abi's Mother. Before she went insane and ran away from the family to whatever course she may have, he was a farmer. He is entirely muggle, despite his own mother claiming to be a fire priestess. Is a mirror of Abi and his brother, with green eyes.

Mother's name: Silban Helios

Brief description (occupation, blood, etc): Before losing her mind and running away to distant land, she seemed to be a wonderful housewife, helping around the family farm as required. As such, she has run off and deserted her family for reasons unknown. Is entirely pureblood, but chose to hide her magic (even from her family!) and never use it. Rejected an invitation to Hogwarts when she was of age to go for reasons to still be realized. Doesn't really look like either of her sons, has brown hair and gray eyes. Is quite pudgy, and Abi fears this is why he's the same.

Siblings (names and descriptions): Dion Helios, his elder by 8 years brother. Dion has been taking care of Abi since their father went in search of their mother. Has a fiance of the name of Sloane, and plans to marry her when Abi returns from Hogwarts for the summer. Looks just like Abi, but is tall, thin, and has gray eyes. Abi aspires to be just like his brother, but with a little bit of magic. ;)

Other key family members: Anali. Abi knows very little about her thus far, save that she is a distant (or not so distant?) ancestor of his. She was in Trudge-away when at Hogwarts, and has planted things for Abi to receive when at Diagon Alley, and possibly other places.

 

At Hogwarts:

To come later. He's just starting today!

Your best subject:

Your worst subject:

Extracurricular activities:

Favorite place at Hogwarts:

Least favorite place at Hogwarts:

Do any of the staff members scare you?

Do any inspire you?

 

Miscellaneous:

Interests/hobbies: His life would revolve around his violin and reading, if he could get away with it. Also has an attraction to working with animals, due to living on a farm his whole life.

What you might like to do after Hogwarts: Abi is still undecided at this point. Before he found out he was magical, his only desire in life was to be a farmer like his father and brother, playing violin as a hobby. Now with new things opened up to him, he might just change his mind.

Someone you look up to: Dion, and to a much smaller extent, Anali.

Something else people really should know about you?: Thinks skirts are the best damned invention in the world, and wonders why more boys don't wear them! ;)
