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

The Train To Superhero Camp

8 posts in this topic

"What do you think Hogwarts is going to be like?" Schuyler asked Sofie once they had put their trunks and things up in their compartment. "I know what it said in Hogwarts, a History. I wonder if it'll be different in person than in the pictures."

The train gave a sudden jolt forward and it began to move forward. He could barely contain the brimming excitement inside of him that he broke out into one the biggest grins he'd probably ever had on his face. He'd been waiting for this forever, but it all seemed to go so fast. It almost felt unreal right now that they were on the train heading to Hogwarts.

"I think it's going to be great! Definitely better than in Hogwarts, a History. Books aren't as exciting as real life," Sofie answered her brother, struggling to sit still as she went back and forth between staring out the window and staring out the compartment doors. "This train ride better fly by. I can't wait to get there."

Turning to Schuyler, Sofie could tell her twin was every bit as excited as she was. "How much exploring do you think we'll be able to get done tonight? Just the Common Room?" Of course she had no doubt that the pair of them would be sorted together. "Hopefully we already know some of our housemates." That would make things easier for them both.

He nodded when Sofie said books weren't as exciting as real life. He agreed with her to a certain extent, but comic books and science fiction adventure books were maybe a bit more exciting to read than anything he'd done in real life. "Same!" He responded, a bit louder than he meant to. He also wanted the train ride to go quickly.

"I don't think we'll get much done." He said after he considered Sofie's question for a moment. "I bet they'll have welcome stuff we'll have to do. Maybe tomorrow we can really explore?"

Sky's reply was exactly what she did NOT want to hear. Sure, arriving at Hogwarts and getting sorted was cool and all, but Sofie was really looking forward to exploring the castle. Lessons began tomorrow, meaning she didn't have a lot of free time to look around. "Welcome stuff should be fun?" At least she hoped it would be. She wasn't very good at hiding her feelings, and she knew Sky would have no problem deciphering just why her last statement lacked her normal enthusiasm.

Sofie opened the compartment door and peeked her head out. Maybe if the door was open, someone would join them. Sofie loved meeting new people. Taking her seat again, she reached into her bag and pulled out her journal. Who knew if she'd need to write things down on the train ride? It was possible and Sofie liked to be prepared.

"Did you bring snacks? I brought some sweets. Want one?" Because sharing is caring.

Greg no longer towered over him. It was great. No longer did his older brother lean his elbows on his head, or call him Shrimp. Now it was just his love interest that stood like two metres taller. OUCH! on his head, the bird had refused to go into his cage, and by now, the Georges knew the bird commanded, George made his way towards the platform.

 

His mum and his brother bade him farewell, with OUCH! managing to grab hold of Greg's nose for like a full minute while onlookers stared with glee or fear. Once the bird had resettled in George's mess of hair, he clambered onto the Hogwarts Express and tried to look for a familiar face.

 

Until he heard mentions of food. Or asking of food, at least. "I've got some sunflower seeds!" he yelled from outside the compartment, peeking in to stare at the two kids inside. Gods, they looked so small. Was he that small once?

 

He didn't have much time to say anything else before OUCH!, the screech owl, decided to swoop in try to peck at the boy's shoelace. "OUCH! THAT IS NOT A WORM!" he yelled, trying to tackle the bird, only resulting in crazy wing-flapping in the tiny, cramped compartment.

He opened his mouth to reply to his twin about snacks to say that he managed to snag a few biscuits that Polly made the other day without her noticing this morning. Not that it was hard to not pull things over on their nanny. She wasn't a very observant lady.

All of this, however, he didn't get to say. An older student with a bird on his head came by and yelled into their compartment about having sunflower seeds. He was about to decline the offer when the owl swooped down and began to eat the boy's shoelaces.

Sky covered his laugh at the scene taking place in front of him. He felt bad, but it was just too funny. "Do you need help?" He asked the older student mid laugh. "Or maybe an owl treat?" It was the only thing he could think of to stop the owl's insistent pulling on the boy's shoelaces.

"Ooh, sunflower seeds?" Sofie repeated excitedly. She liked sunflower seeds and she liked sharing. Looking at the older boy who was peering into their compartment, she tried to be nice,"Want to trade some? You can sit with us if you like," She wondered immediately, but everyone was distracted after that. An owl that had previously been sitting on the boy's head had flown into the compartment and was attacking Schuyler's shoelace.

 

"Is he supposed to eat that? Could it hurt him?" Sky could get new shoelaces, Sofie didn't want anything bad to happen to the bird. "You should stop him. Yeah, do you need help?" Because they were very helpful.

Help? In what sense? Because yes, he did need help, but he highly doubted the two knew of any owl trainers in the area. The boy mentioned an owl treat though, and George nodded, tugging the bird away from the shoelace, only to be the sudden focus of a ravenous bird. Tumbling to the floor and trying to keep OUCH! away from his eyes, George yelled, "TREAT WOULD WORK. YES."

 

Sunflower seeds were basically forgotten as George worked super hard to avoid having his loving pet peck out his eyes. Or worse. His contacts. He was already well out of the glasses/braces phase. He did not want to return, thank you very much.

 

"Touch him at your own risk!" he yelled, trying to sedate the bird by offering him his own shoelace now. It wasn't working. The two rolled on the floor, feathers ruffling and arguing ensuing as George tried to talk his way out of being attacked by OUCH!.
