      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

The walk from their dorm room, to the common room, to the kitchen, to Great Hall felt longer than it should have been.

"You can let go of my hand." The Badger spoke flushed. "It's not going anywhere you know."

 

Honestly, he wasn't complaining.

He didn't know that he was still holding on to his hand. "Oh, I am sorry. I didn't know I still had it. You promise that you are not going to go anywhere?" Ethan was worried he would run off again and that he would have to go find him.

A small tinge of disappointment invaded Dafydd's stomach as Ethan let go of his hand while giving his apologies. A small smiled appeared on the boy's face as Ethan spoke of him running off.

 

"How could I go anywhere with a grip that tight?"

He laughed, he didn't know he was holding on tight. This boy was his best friend. He needed his best friend around. "I just didn't want to lose you, that is all." He said with a smile, walking over the the Hufflepuff table and started to get some food.

It wasn't like Ethan needed a map that could tell him where Dafydd's every whereabouts were. All Ethan had to do was look in front of him, and Dafydd would always be there.

 

"Ethan, we had a fight, it doesn't mean we're not going to see each other."

 

A fight Dafydd started over his stupid ignorance.

They did have a fight, but he was used to people fighting him and then leaving him. So having a best friend was still new to him. "That doesn't mean you wouldn't leave. Some fights end up with people leaving." He knew that first hand, he was just trying not to let it get to him. The friends that he has here, they were the only friends he really had. He didn't have any back home.

Ethan clearly didn't understand Dafydd, they were friends, and that meant that they were friends for life. No matter what the circumstances. "Ethan," The Badger spoke to the other, this time he took Ethan's hand while looking deep in his friend's vibrant green eyes.

 

"We had a fight." Stating the obvious, "Loads of people have them, but we're mates, and I'm not going to lose you over something silly." His words were right, especially since he was the one who caused the fight.

Having friends was hard work. At least for Ethan it was, almost losing London as a friend twice and thinking he was going to lose Dafydd. "I understand it now. I will never lose you, and you will never lose me." He said with a smile as he was eating more food. He needed energy when it came to dueling.

Smiling as he let the boy's hand go, "Mates, don't let other mates go." It was then Dafydd probably witnessed something that he didn't, and possibly never wanted to see ever again. And that was Ethan devouring his food.

 

"Uh, Ethan?" The boy spoke to his friend, "Carnivores still need to chew their food."

"That is a good thing." He said with a mouth full of food, he was hungry and wanted to eat. Was there a problem with that. As he was eating and not really crewing at all, he went to say something to Dayfdd but he couldn't. He was coughing a lot and was having trouble breathing. Well this is not great.

"Ethan, chew your food!" It was too late, his friend was already choking, and this was a problem. Standing as he rushed to his friends back, he could see the colour in Ethan's face starting to fade. Wrapping his arms around Ethan's torso, Dafydd struggled to get the boy to stand as he performed the Heimlich manoeuvre.

 

Pushing Ethan's body more and more close to his own, Dafydd continued to plunge his firsts into Ethan's abdomen. "C'mon Ethan!" Dafydd spoke feeling his hot sticky breath cling to Ethan's neck "Stay with me!"

Maybe he should have chewed his food a little more, he wouldn’t be sitting here feeling like he was going to die. Then before he knew it, Dafydd was doing something to him, he could feel the food coming back up and he was able to spit it out. He was able to feel his breath, that was hot, and telling him to stay with him. “Ahhh I can breathe again. Thank you.” He told his friend, it was a good thing that he was here. “Maybe I should chew my food a little more.” He said with a laugh, that is what he was going to have to do. Laugh it all off.

A little more? Was Ethan serious? He figured he should chew a little more? That had struck a nerve with Dafydd as he just witnessed his best friend almost die.

 

"You think?" The second year spoke quite bluntly "Do you just act on impulse now?"

So he didn’t chew his food all the way, it is what happens when he is hungry and needs food. After all he was looking for Dafydd and didn’t get a chance to eat before. He needed his energy, so he would be able to duel more. “I think maybe, I was hungry and the food was so good.” He told his friend, giving him a look. But he was thankful that he was there. “I don’t act on impulse. I just act.”
