      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

Cordelia Waldegrave

In loving memory of Madam Tibbles

4 posts in this topic

Death. The end. Six feet under. Another one bites the dust. Deaded. Donzo.

 

Madam Tibbles was all of those things and Cordelia was doing her best to cope with that fact, and to be honest it wasn't going so well. Unless you counted wearing the same sweater for two weeks straight and crying at the drop of a hat as coping well. But all of that was about to change, maybe, hopefully, probably not.

 

Seeing as how Cordy didn't have a body to host a funeral, the ickle had to settle for a celebration of life ceremony, which to be honest are for more fun than funerals. Or at least Cordy's would be, because she had an in with a certain man who was the proud owner of a giant inflatable pub. It wasn't the same as a bouncy castle, but it would have to do. Plus bouncy castles weren't exactly appropriate for a somber affair such as this.

 

For once in her life the ickle remembered she could use magic to avoid lugging ridiculously heavy objects around. Cordy was just nailing the final peg into place which meant Ethan would be arriving shortly with sandwiches she had requested, and hopefully liters upon liters of pumpkin juice to wash them down, because peanut butter cheese sandwiches weren't everyone's cup of tea.

 

Speaking of her partner in crime, "Ethan!" she greeted the only friend she could convince to help her, mainly so he make sure she didn't accidentally kill herself with a hammer. "You can put those inside next to the pile of bark.

 

Please wait for Ethan to post.

He had never seen death before, or known anyone that has passed away. When he came back to Hogwarts and he heard about Madam Tibbles, his heart broke. Remember that she would never call anyone by their real names. He would always be Nathan to Madam Tibbles.

His best friend Cordy had said something along the lines that she wanted to host a celebration of life for her. Ethan was all up for the idea, showing that they really cared about her. It was so odd not seeing her in the chamber, making sweaters for everyone. He was wearing his today, and it was not the best weather to wear it. But for her memory Ethan decided to wear it.

He left the kitchen holding something that Cordy came up with, some peanut butter cheese sandwiches, knowing that she didn’t like jelly. Ethan made sure that there was no jelly near them at all. He also had a lot of pumpkin juice. The drink he didn’t like at all.

“Cordy hey, I hope that we got enough.” He said as he placed them down next to the bark. “So, celebration of her life, should be like her and greet everyone by a wrong name.” He said, looking at the inflatable pub that was set up. “You did a great job, what name did she call you by Cordy. I was always Nathan.” He said laughing. Sure him and Cordy only knew her for a year, but she was someone that everyone was going to miss.

 



This thread to celebrate the life of Madam Tibbles, please feel free to post anything you want about one of everyone favorite dueling officiators. She will be truly missed. Have some treats, talk to friends, think about the memories that you had with Madam Tibbles. She might be gone, but we will never forget her.

This thread is now open.

As it may seem to disbelief, London was no longer acting like a Yates, and well, being himself. The ground had started to become more chilly, and sweater season was upon them.

 

London wasn't one to believe in an afterlife, although the ghosts that haunted his families house, and the ones in the castle seemed to be full blown proof of his scepticism. Which led him to rethink his belief as he came into possession of a sweater on his bed with the single word 'ENGLAND' which had seemed to be embroidered onto the fabric.

 

Now wearing said sweater on his person, he looked to Ethan and Cordy in the distance as he mozied to them as it seemed he approached the two in just the right time. "She called me England." Which wasn't too far off from his nickname, in which in the end, he was happy that she didn't know that his real name was Constantine.

Cordy could spot a Made by Tibbles sweater a mile away. So, when London arrived donning his which was probably straight off the 2035 runway, the ickle quickly squashed the memories of its wearers less than pleasant comments about Kimber not loving her. "London!" she bounced over to their first mourner. "Oh sorry, I mean London," the ickle lowered her voice to just over a whisper, "I forgot inside voices. But, look Tibbles made me a sweater too." The ickle proceeded to pull at the hem of her hamburger sweater for London to get a better few of all its glory. Cordy had two sweaters, but this wasn't the time or place to brag. Plus her mummy's voice was bellowing in her head to be nice.

 

If Tibbles used to call Cordelia by the wrong name she couldn't remember, mainly because Cordy was always too preoccupied with the anticipation of sweets and knitwear. "You should eat a sandwich, or a piece of bark, whatever floats your boat."
