      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

I squidn't think that this would be an issue

Gary rustled the pages of the Daily Prophet, pausing from his reading only to take a dainty sip of his mug of earl grey tea. He was an impressively cultured fellow, other than the fact that his tea was nearly white with cream and sugar and the paper was from a week and a half ago.

 

He shifted through tales of robberies and do-gooders, perused the classified sections (free cauldron to a good home! Ignore the stain in the bottom and we’ve got a deal!), and skipped over the editorial portion completely because who cared about others’ opinions?

 

One story caught his attention in particular, concerning The Giant Squid's inability to find love. Gary sympathized, other than the fact that he had already found love, so really it was more like he empathized if we're going to go into logistics.

 

"Maybe the other..." the Gryffindor squinted at the difficult to pronounce Japanese name. "...uh, thing didn't like it when the giant squid was kraken all those jokes on their first date."

Cecily needed sustenance. If she didn't get to the Great Hall soon she was going to implode from a lack of food. Her stomach rumbled as she walked and Cecily clutched at her sweater, growing hangrier by the second.

 

She plopped down at the Gryffindor table and stuffed bread into her mouth, shoveling it down with fruits faster than any eleven year old should. Cecily finished off the food with a gulp of pumpkin juice and wiped her mouth, looking up for the first time since she inhaled food and saw Gary, the farter and fake posh kid.

 

"I doubt he did it on porpoise."

Kaelyn yawned. She wasn't a morning person, but she couldn't be all shellfish about her sleep now that she had a boyfriend to eat breakfast with and all, so here she was.

 

"Maybe the squid should show off his mussels more or something." That type of behaviour usually worked for her.

Taking another dignified slurp of tea, Gary licked the milky mustache that had clung to his non-existent one. "Maybe they had some sort of disagreement on whether to raise a clamily in the future or not. That sort of thing can be a deal breaker." He nodded knowingly as if he had extensive experience in the subject.

Cecily shoved another piece of food in her mouth without looking. This time it was a waffle. Waffles were good. "Or maybe the squid got too crabby all the time. He doesn't seem to be all that friendly." Cecily shoved another waffle in her mouth, coated in syrup.

"Or maybe the squid just had a really hard time expressing his eelings," Gary reasoned, keeping an eye on the plates around the girl that she was randomly grabbing from. Maybe she would accidentally take a bite out the small Rememberall that was nestled into the fruit basket amidst the apples and break a tooth.

"Nothing wrong with being planktonic for a bit." Kaelyn curled up and put her head down. She was about as tired as her puppeteer.

Gary probably wanted her to break a tooth.

 

Couldn't bite people without teeth.

 

Cecily grabbed a fresh plate of pancakes and began to consume them. She swung her fork around, pointing the pieces of pancake at Gary. "I think it's a load of carp, honestly. He probably doesn't care about love, just attention."

"Yeah, or maybe it just didn't work because her friends didn't make him feel very whale-come," Gary retorted. He was starting to get defensive and he did not know why.

 

Or was it...sea-fensive?

"Maybe one of them has an evil codmother keeping them apart," Kaelyn suggested (she suddenly woke up for a bit). "Urchin gonna also consider that maybe they just aren't sole mates?"

Kae was shellfish and using all the puns in a single post. How rude.

 

Cecily shoved more pancakes in her mouth, drowning in syrup. "The squid should just stop being a stupid, scared buoy and figure out his life for himself. No one else is gonna do it for him."

"I mean, I don't blame him for wanting to seaweed out all the rejects," the Gryffindor stated thoughtfully before chugging the rest of his tea. "And maybe he's afraid of all the waves of emotions that it makes him feel. But he's a man. Well, a man-squid. And a man-squid has to go out and get a lady. After all, that's what life is aboat."

 

He slammed his empty cup on the table with passion burning in his eyes. "And I'll help him. It. Whatever."

Cecily jumped when Gary slammed his mug on the table and hit her plate of drowned pancakes, sending the gooey syrup on Gary's shirt. Cecily glared at Gary. Her pancakes! How dare he. She grumpily grabbed an omelette.

 

"Channel your anger at the syrup and passion for the squid into action!"
