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

"I just know they cheated, somehow."

 

She looked towards the trophy case at the house cup.

Abby pouted as she stared at the house cup. "Probably. But we can't prove anything."

She walked over to the house cup and then looked back at Abby.

 

"I think they might have used people who were too old? I don't know."

"Oooh, like China in the Olympics!" 

 

Did Havana even know what those were? Meh. Oh well.

"Yeah, or you know maybe they did that other thing?"

 

Something about unfair advantages, but she couldn't remember exactly what it was.

"What thing?" Abby could only read minds once in a while, and apparently today was not one of those days.

"Russia?"

OH.

"Y'think they rigged the game?"

"Yes."

 

She looked at the house cup, "They rigged the quaffle."

"Oooh, like rigging dice. Ugh I wouldn't put it past them. Dirty lions."

 

Abby didn't actually think that because she loved Darcy and Finch to pieces but.

 

She wasn't a good loser.

"It could be worse, though."

 

 

They could have lost every game.

"I guess. We didn't lose by that much."

 

Abby was still pouty though.

"I mean, it seemed like the quaffle was stuck in on our side of the pitch. Like they had some kind of magnet in it?"

"Do magnets even work on the grounds?" Nothing muggle ever did and she didn't even know what wizards would do with magnets.

"Magnetic fields aren't a man made thing, so yeah?"

"Maybe..." Abby sighed. "We should go see if the Quaffle's still magnetized to their goal posts. It should still be happening if they rigged it."

She nodded, "Yeah, but what if they removed the magnets after the game during the celebration?"

"No one, but remembering to take the magnets out would be too smart for them."

 

Because other than Darcy, Gryffindors weren't exactly the brightest tools in the shed (that included Finch, yes, who was clever but sometimes too aloof).

"So, maybe magnets weren't the thing they used."

 

She looked around and sighed, "But there's no way they're that good."

"Probably not." 

 

Damn. It would've been a nice solution.
