      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

Kimber Yates

When I die I'll be on time

4 posts in this topic

Kimber Yates did not understand at Hogwarts at all. He had been so excited to be a Hufflepuff, but now he was starting to give up on the whole thing. Now he almost hated the house and he was given a prefect badge. He'd naturally hidden it from his family, since he didn't want his family to see it at all. Instead it'd been burred in between the pages of one of his several dueling books. This shouldn't be too bad, right? No one would know and there wouldn't be an issue at all. Instead he kept it all a secret as he did with most things in his life.

 

But now he was at school and he couldn't hide the badge. He wasn't embarrassed by it, but he was sure they gave it to the wrong person. On top of that he finally was able to sleep in a bedroom again. On top of giving him the badge, the professor gave him a new dorm room with the sixth years. This was just fine with him though. He was working on not fighting with his new dormmate. Maybe they'd be friends?

 

No. But oh well.

 

So Kimber was sitting in the trophy room looking at his new badge. His fingers ran over the top of it the way he had longed to do over summer.

Love. It was such a strange word to hear, or to fell tingle off the tip of his tongue.

 

Surely at some point in his parent's marriage they must have felt something. They must have since they've managed to procreate three children... Sure either he or Louise could be counted as a mistake as they possibly weren't planning, or actually expecting twins.

 

But how was it supposed to feel? This was something that had been on his mind since he had first laid his eyes on Alice. His heart became strange to him, a now unformilier land in which he had to rediscover...

 

It wasn't long until London found himself in the trophy room where he found himself in more as of late since he had yet another fight with Ethan.. Yet, they still had become friends..

 

Walking into the room instantly spotting his brother holding something he couldn't make out at the time, he kept his distance from his Kimber, and he sat in the location of dueling trophy as things may have gotten weird with the silence that had always accord when the two were in the same room.

 

"Kimber."

Kimber's hands brushed over the badge without too much trouble. It felt weird in his hand, but he wasn't sure he ever wanted to let go of it. Sure, he needed to pin it to his inform soon. But he wasn't sure. Instead he just kept holding onto it. Maybe this one thing would change the world? It'd already changed his world. For once, he didn't tell his parents everything. He was sort of shocked he hadn't been outed by one of his siblings, but there was a chance they didn't know either, but that seemed unlikely to him.

 

"Constantine." He hadn't even looked up, but he heard his brother's voice. And in that moment, he knew what he should probably do in order to keep London from telling their parents. But yet he didn't want to say anything yet. Instead he kept holding his badge carefully. "What are you doing up here?" It was a good question. This wasn't a place he'd expect to see his younger sibling. Then again, it wasn't a normal place for Kimber either.

 

He needed the silence.

A scowl had come onto London's face as Kimber used London's real name. "London." He quickly snarled at the use of his real name. He hated that name with a passion and has told Kimber countless times to call him London, but it was always to no avail.

 

"Well, uh.." London spoke trying to answer his brother's question. "Ethan and I." A small frown quickly replaced his scowl as he wasn't even sure if they two were still even friends. "I." He retorted his statement "Come here when I'm upset."

 

Standing from where he was sitting he walked to his brother and sat next to him "Where you planning on telling Louise and me?" Looking to Kimber's Prefect badge, London sighed as he took a small crumpled paper and placed it onto his lap.

 

"Looks like we both have responsibilities this year." It still rattled his mind as to how he became captain of the Ravenclaw Quidditch team, but then again Kimber was a prefect. Anything could happen.
