      How to get sorted   03/03/2018

      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.   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, March 3rd Sorting Form closes: Friday, April 6th (No forms will be accepted after this date) The Sorting Ceremony closes: Sunday, April 8th, about 10am Central Time You find out your new house: Sunday, April 8th, 11 am Central Time First day of the new school year: Monday, April 9th   (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

Looking closer| What drives you?


December 11

Cheerful Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter, the largest planet in the solar system. Jupiter is the happy planet, full of energy and confidence. Sagittarians often reflect Jupiters larger-than-life persona. Sagittarius is the ultimate free spirit: optimistic, open-minded and ambitious. Happiest in wide-open spaces with plenty of adventure and excitement. You juggle a million projects, hobbies and friends. The more, the merrier! Sagittarius is forever pursuing a super-sized goal. Even when you fail, nothing can keep you down.




11 ¼ inch cedar dragon heartstring



"I have never yet met the owner of a cedar wand whom I would care to cross, especially if harm is done to those of whom they are fond. The witch or wizard who is well-matched with cedar carries the potential to be a frightening adversary, which often comes as a shock to those who have thoughtlessly challenged them."

feminine, stubborn, powerful

dragon heartstring

"As a rule, dragon heartstrings produce wands with the most power, and which are capable of the most flamboyant spells. Dragon wands tend to learn more quickly than other types ..."

raw power, permanent, unyielding



capra hircus | Suomenvuohi

Copper Finnish Landrace Pygmy Goat



"Stubborn, Protective, and Playful, the Pygmy Finnish Landrace goat is a handful. Constantly moving, climbing, jumping, and inquisitive about all new things in their surroundings, they also will not bend to the will of others without their own motives behind an action."

Year zero| Where do you belong?



pre-hogwarts primary

workbook highlights


Ingrid learn's she's a witch. 



In the sitting room next to the kitchen, Ingrid regarded the intruder to their home with wide eyes. Sitting on the television was a great big barn owl with huge yellow eyes. Ingrid's dad set her gently to the ground in front of the owl, picking up the letter it had dropped and giving the owl a small treat from his pocket.


The letter was for her! Ingrid was speechless for probably the first time in her short life. She took the letter and turned it over, seeing the waxy seal and almost being afraid to break it. "Hogwarts?" she whispered to herself, remembering suddenly that the word meant something to her, from all the fantastic books in her Daddy's study.


"Jane, dear," Herbert Leighton said to the confused and angry face of his wife of 12 years. "Remember when I told you my family was... different?"



Breaking the rules, breaking the rules


"SHE DID IT!" said the boy earlier, pointing squarely at Ingrid. She tried to look abashed, and used the same look to the teacher. If she looked innocent, surely they couldn't think it was her, right? But the error had been made, as the pouch filled with powder fell out of Ingrid's lap and onto the floor, the teacher levitating it to her eye level before Ingrid could protest.


"Laughing Powder? Against your own housemate!? Young lady, come with me at once." The professor said sternly, grabbing Ingrid by her upper arm and pulling her from the table, amidst protests of "She started it!!"


One stern hand held the still-laughing girl, tears streaming down her face, the other held Ingrid, trying her best to dig her heels into the ground, lest she be taken to Mr. Filch's Office.

Don’t fret, Miss Leighton, I’m sure you’ll be just fine -- whoa! Steady there, lass! It's precarious enough, poised here atop your head, without you wobbling about on that shoddy stool. There you go, now, where were we? Ah yes, your sorting! Where to put you, where to put you... Righteous and brave, Gryffindor might be a fair fit, but creative and curious... perhaps Ravenclaw? No, no, I'm afraid neither of those houses will do. Driven, resourceful, self-motivated and uncompromising. No better place for you than... SLYTHERIN!

Year One| Who will you be?



Story Arcs:



Misadventures in Catsitting #1 | Havana Towne && Desmond Potter | Castle Corridors

>>> Havana convinces Desmond to "borrow" Rowan Allard's cat, Takko. Ingrid is not present for this part of the plot. 


Misadventures in Catsitting #2 | Havana Towne && Halcyon Pelletier | Slytherin Common Room

>>> After bringing Takko to the Slytherin Common Room, Havana convinces Hals and Rid to participate by playing with the cute kitten. Ingrid has no choice but to adore the cute cat. 


Misadventures in Catsitting #3 | Havana Towne, Desmond Potter, Halcyon Pelletier && Rowan Allard | Astronomy Tower

>>> Havana sent a ransom note to Rowan, who found the group of intrepid and unwitting cat thieves on the Astronomy Tower. Rowan is, understandably, very upset that her cat has been stolen. Ingrid is oblivious. 


This old house is made of stone | Havana Towne | Slytherin Common Room 

>>> Ingrid is angry at Havana for tricking her into being an accomplice in the thievery of Rowan's cat. Havana reveals her motives behind the plan to Ingrid's surprise and she promptly forgets why she was mad. 


Can I trust you? Or are you like the others? | Desmond Potter | Lawn

>>> A few days post-catsitting adventure, Desmond and Ingrid do cartwheels on the lawn to heal their damaged friendship from Rid's perceived villainy. 


ev'rybody's pickin' up on that feline beat | Halcyon Pelletier | Lawn

>>> After becoming "friends," during the catsitting debacle, Halcyon feels that Ingrid is taking liberties with her contact with him and his cute cat, Minou. Ingrid, oblivious as ever, participates in creating "rules" for their friendship. 





I got angels by my side, can you see 'em? | Ollie Celeste && Havana Towne | Mr. Filch's Office

>>> Ollie, Havana and Rid break into Mr. Filch's office to pilfer confiscated items. Havana finds an old "Potter Stinks" badge and begins to plan handing them out, referring to Desmond rather than Harry. Rid finds a ring, and begins spouting nonsense.


Now I see the truth. I've got no doubt. | Havana Towne  && EVERYONE | Great Hall

>>> Havana begins her tirade about the "Potter Stinks" badges, hurting feelings, causing mayhem, generally spreading nonsense. Ingrid does the same, but with a little less control, due to her Lying Ring still affecting her speech. 


You need someone to listen to your fiction.| Ingrid && Many Others| Great Hall

>>> Rid's nonsense gains a following, as people believe her lies to be prophecies. Ingrid figures out she's being controlled and takes off the ring. The current whereabouts of the ring are unknown at this time. 






Prowling through the city, I need someone to blame| Seeley Pichardo && Professor James | Defense Offices

>>> Rid and Seeley have decided that they believe Professor James is hiding something. In this stakeout thread, they discuss the evidence while they wait, poised behind a statue, to capture a picture of the Professor in her true state. 


>>> Unlinked article written by Seeley about the existence of Hags in the Defense program at Hogwarts. 


>>> Unlinked DADA Lesson in which Professor Althaus teaches the first year class about Hags, ala Severus Snape teaching the class about werewolves, or so Seeley and Rid believe. 


The Truth is Out There| Seeley Pichardo && Professor Althaus | Unused Classroom

>>> After an outburst in the class Professor Althaus was substituting for about the existence of Hags in the castle, and why students go missing before Second Year, Rid and Seeley go back to his office to interrogate him about his involvement in the plot to cover up Hag involvement at Hogwarts. 




Death Eaters break into the school. 


Hogsmeade's Totally Overrated, right?| Havana Towne, Halcyon Pelletier, Charlie Perkins, Rowan Allard, Desmond Potter, Ryan Burtasche && Professor Mendelssohn | Castle Corridors

>>> Ingrid runs into a group of her classmates, trying to get to the Owlry on a Hogsmeade weekend. She had been wandering around the castle, bored. For some unknown reason, they cannot get up the stairs to the fourth floor. It's as if someone intentionally blocked off the staircase. Professor Mendelssohn rescues the first years from harm. 


And with these hands I'll move a mountain, build a castle to keep you safe| Edwin Gabor | Castle Corridors

>>> The staircases change just as Ingrid is making her escape from the castle during the attack. She shuts down and is too scared to move until Edwin finds her. Together, they find their way to one of the safe houses. 


Your hope dangling by a string I'll share in your suffering| Halcyon Pelletier && Havana Towne| Lawn

>>> Unbeknownst to Ingrid, Havana and Halcyon make it safely to one of the safe zones with Professor Mendelssohn, and realize that Ingrid somehow got left behind in the castle. 


And watching over lucky clover isn't that bizarre| Halcyon Pelletier && Havana Towne| Lawn

>>> Unbeknownst to Ingrid, Havana and Halcyon sneak back into the castle in an attempt to find both her and Rowan Allard. 




First Year, Worst Year

VH 34 SuperlativesVH34 | Great Hall

>>> People win awards. Ingrid wins one too, for "Biggest Hair."  


Yes we rule the world, for now, if we choose toVH34 | Armor Gallery

>>> All of the First Years gather to exchange candy and tell stories about their Christmas break. 


Here Come the Pie| VH34 | Great Hall

>>> Desmond Potter finally marries the love of his life. Pie. 


Nothing Interesting Going on HereVH34 | Great Hall

>>> Really, don't look. There's no point. Nothing interesting ever happens in this thread. That's the point.





Every step I'm taking every move I make | Havana Towne && Bryony King | The West Tower

>>> Ingrid drags Havana up to the owlry to pet the owls. Things do not go as planned and thankfully, a prefect is there to rescue them from the Hitchcockian scene. 


There's a monster in the lake | Havana Towne, Juan Garcia, Rowan Allard && Comet Endelsohn | The Lakefront

>>> Newly sorted first years attempt to find the giant squid through the use of various treats. 


You did this, you freak | Milo Shin | The Hospital Wing

Let it rain, rain down on me | Edwin Gabor | Moaning Myrtle's Bathroom

>>> While exploring the castle, Edwin finds Ingrid filling the bathroom with bubbles as punishment for not being more interesting. A bubble fight for the ages ensues. 


And then I'll take the room to pieces| Kirk Lawson && Tarquin Pomfrey-Corner | The Hospital Wing 

>>> Havana lets a bludger out in flying class and, knowing nothing of Quidditch, Ingrid tries to catch it softball style- breaking her wrist. Kirk begrudgingly takes a sobbing Ingrid to the hospital wing, where Tarquin fixes her up. 


Get in losers, we're going shopping | Abigail Goodfellow, Grover Penn, Juan Garcia, Kieran Wells && Professor Gawkrodger | Muggle Studies Offices

>>> Ingrid disregards the mentor assignments and tags along with Abby and Grover's group. They attempt to steal/borrow a DVD player for a movie night with the group. 


I see silver linings everyday | Halcyon Pelletier | Homes & Holidays | Cardiff, Wales

Nobody told me that life would be cruel, take a lesson boy back to school | Abigail Goodfellow | The Quidditch Pitch

>>> After realizing that Ingrid's quidditch knowledge needs help. A lot of help. Abby offers to teach Ingrid the rules of the game. 




ugh this is taking forever, I'll add more soon.
