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

PHP Lesson 1

 

Assignment: Workbook started

 

EC: wc = 169

 

She never noticed her mother doing magic. Why it was kept a secret Aggie didn't know but one day a letter arrived and life changed for the young girl. Oh, mom had read her books about magical things but Aggie had thought it was all 'fairy tales'. Occasionally, strange things would happen and her mother would quickly make right whatever Aggie had set wrong. Things like the lamp suddenly falling off the end table when Aggie would babble some words learning to talk or cookies suddenly floating from the counter to Aggie's plate.

 

And then one day, her birthday to be exact, the letter had arrived. Her mother didn't look very happy to see it but managed to smile as Aggie opened it and read it. Things seemed to happen fast after that. Her mum telling her tales of the great grandmother Aggie was named after. Enrolling and beginning to attend a pre-Hogwarts school to learn about magic and this wizarding world she was now a part of.

It had been two weeks since Aggie arrived at the school and she was beginning to feel like she was going to be okay. She missed her mum terribly though and kept a photo on her bedside table. Thankfully, Owl Post allowed her to get mail from home a lot quicker than the Royal Mail Post so they had been able to keep in touch frequently. Currently, she was settling down to fill her mum in on the latest events.

Dear Mum,

 

It has been a good day. There's so much to learn and finding my way around is kind of hard but I'm managing. Classes are okay. So far they're almost as boring as back in my Muggle school but everyone says we'll get to start doing real spells soon.

 

I just wish they'd let you visit once in a while. I miss you so much and I think it's stupid not to allow visitors at all, especially since you went here anyway. I can't wait to see you then I come home for the holidays.

 

Love you to the moon and back,

Aggie

Optimistic:   Usually sees the good side of most situations

 

Extra Credit:  wc = 87

 

Aggie wasn't that tall to begin with so most of the older students at Hogwarts were definitely taller than her.  However, she was not expecting to accidentally bump into someone and be staring at their belt buckle to apologize.  "Oops, sorry, was ... rushing?"  Her statement ended on a question mark as her head tilted backwards as far as it could go until she finally saw the other person's face.  "Dang, I'm short," she commented.    Remembering her manners, she smiled and held out her hand.  "Hi, I'm Aggie."

PHP Lesson 5

 

Attendance:  wc = 129

 

Aggie had met a couple of people when she had been shopping in Diagon Alley that day and she had met quite a few when there was some sort of gathering or debate over whether magic was good or not.  Or was that farming being good or not?  She really didn't know as it had become so confusing.  

 

But that was all.  She had met them but she hadn't really gotten to know anyone at the new school, nor had they gotten to know her.  So, as they went outside for some free time, Aggie watched as everyone broke off into groups and then made her way over to a bench to watch the activities.  She was beginning to wonder if she really did belong in the magical world.

PHP Lesson 6

 

NOTE:  Gringotts and shop links currently not valid du to vh update

 

Attendance:  wc = 113

 

Her own pet?  Yep, that's what she was at the shop for, a pet all her own.  Aggie walked around looking at all of the creatures.  She was familiar with some of them but others, like the crup, was a new sight to see.  However, Aggie also knew that she was only allowed to select from certain kinds if she wished to bring her pet to school with her.   It wasn't hard for her to rule out a rat as a pet.  She just couldn't handle the idea of one to cuddle.  Nope not happening.  That left a cat or an owl and Aggie was having a difficult time making up her mind.

 

Extra Credit:  wc =124 

 

Aggie's head was just about spinning.  She really had not paid a lot of attention to the types of monies used when she had made the trip to Diagon Alley with her mum.  The only shop she had actually paid for the purchase in was the wand shop and her mum had given the exact amount to her.  

 

Now, it seemed this many knuts made a sickle or was it this many sickle's made knut and they could become a ship?  A galleon was a ship right?  Oh, apparently, it was also a form of wizarding money.   As she went to pick out a catalog to look at and make a 'wish list' from, she wondered if she would ever get the money straight.

PHP Lesson 7

 

Attendance:  wc = 87

 

Aggie will definitely be interested in taking Divination, Ancient Runes, and Arithmancy.  Yes, she would enjoy a class about magical creatures and yes, the magic part is there but to her real magic is going to be the foretelling or forecasting subjects and she wants to learn everything she can about magic.  I don't think she'll take Muggle Studies considering she's been living in the Muggle world all of her life but then again, she may take it just to see the wizarding take on Muggle life.

 

Extra Credit:  wc =103

PHP Lesson 7

VH 35

 

Wait!  You mean you had a bunch of classes for magic?  But wasn't magic all one thing.  Just one big lesson all day on the subject?  Aggie listened with amazement as the teacher explained each of the subject they would be taking.  Magic was beginning to sound a lot more complicated than she realized.  It was not just a matter of mumbling some funny words and waving her wand.  Just when Aggie's eyes were beginning to glaze over at all the information, she began hearing some words that made her perk up.  In particular, the mention of Divination.  Now they had her attention.

PHP Lesson 8

 

Attendance:  wc = 68

 

Aggie is not a very competitive sports oriented girl, at least not as  a participant so she is not likely to go out for Quidditch.  Dueling is a maybe until she finds out more about it to make a definite decision.  The professor run games and other such events are more likely to appeal to her and those are the ones that she is currently looking forward to.

 

Extra Credit:  wc = 90 

 

Walking back into the common room after her classes, Aggie stopped to check out the bulletin board to see what was new and spotted a sign up sheet for tryouts for the Quidditch team.  It seemed like everyone was getting excited about trying out and she wondered if it was only her who saw no reason to sign up or try out.   It might be fun to watch a game or two but playing?  Aggie just shook her head and walked away to settle down somewhere to start her homework

PHP Lesson 9

 

Attendance:  wc = 83

 

Aggie really would not fit into Slytherin as she really is not that cunning or ambitious.  Yes, she does want to learn and make something of herself and her life, but not for the purpose of being someone rich and famous.  She'd rather do it for the sake of doing something and accomplishing it.  Of the remaining three, she is more of a Gryffindor or Ravenclaw than anything else with the mix of being inquisitive, studious and clever yet also quirky and optimistic.

The trip across the lake was unbelievable and Aggie did her best to take it all in as they arrived at the other side where the castle that she would call home stood.   Along with the others, she scrambled out of the  boat and began the walk up to the school to enter for the first time and be sorted into their houses.   

 

Just ahead of her was the friend she made at that discussion protest thing (she still wasn't sure what it was) and all was fine until he suddenly hit the ground.  Closing the short distance, she helped him up as well as aiding in dusting off his robes.  "You okay, River?" she asked, concerned.
