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

"Or ever," Iggy added casually as she nodded along to Hamish's sage advice to Trouble. Cheered slightly by the fact that she wasn't the only one acknowledging the disheartening comment. She was tightening her grip on the rope a bit more when another girl yelled a confirmation of vengeance later. Good enough for her. 

"Sounds like a date!" She smiled a little too cheerfully. 
"MY TEAM! COMPANYYY READYYYYYY..."

Iggy had once seen a muggle movie with armies and whatnot, supplied by aunt Muirgen during the unending obsession with death post-orphaning. Drill Sergeant Iggy reporting! Yelling was a leadership skill, right?

"PULL ON THREE!
ONE! TWO! THREEEEEE!"

Everything was tied up. This wasn’t good. Sonny wanted to win! He didn’t know why since he doubted there was anything to gain from this but he was a Potter and competitiveness was in his blood. He didn’t want to lose, especially since it seemed like Veronica would kill him if they did. She was screaming at the team. It was just another reason to avoid her (like he needed another reason – she was awful). “We can do this!” he said to his team. “Everyone work together now!” He was definitely not a leader but he could be a good cheerleader when he needed to be.

The tension. The drama.

 

It call came down to this last round. "GO GO GO!" he demanded his team, who seemed to be winning, even if it was by the smallest of margins. As long as he won, he didn't care at all. It meant he got the jelly beans from Large Human, and the Tiny Humans had done his bidding for him. Excellent!

 

"ME WIN!" he immediately scrambled towards Mr McRobbie, "Beans. Now."

Round 6 is over!

 

Team Puddle: 2 RPs

Team Trouble: 5 RPs

 

Team Trouble wins the round and the game! Thanks for playing -- we'll be sending prizes out when the shops are back. :wub:

"Hahahahahahaha!" Daya pointed and Laughed. "Get wrecked, pretty boy b@stard! Try not to cry over that pathetic loss!" She howled amused, obvs she was too cool to play something lame like tug o war but making Casper's life miserable was always on her to do list.

Iggy glared angrily at the squeaky potato trying to take all the credit for child labour. "Gross, Trouble!" She yelled, "Go eat a spotted d!ck." The eleven year wasn't sure why that was insulting, but Aunt Muirgen said it all the time and it seemed to have the desired effect when she did. Spotted d!ck wasn't her idea of acceptable dessert, but she wasn't offended by the idea of eating it. 

 And then another girl yelled something about pretty boy and she was snapped out her musings, "WHY ARE THERE SO MANY PRETTY BOYS?!"

desserts are offensive

"Team Trouble I'll order a extra extra large cheese pizza and garlic knots for lunch to be delivered, tomorrow, for you winners I know a great local place with these huge 36 inch pizzas. Good job everyone. Our gnome friend is welcome to join being such a big tug of war fan. And I'm joining you.," Heulwen said and wrote the order and time to deliver tomorrow to drop off and pre-pay at the Italian Restaurant.

 

ooc: Will do a Pizza Lunch thread to post in.

they lost. what a waste of his time. now, he was left with nothing but bitterness toward his teammates, clammy hands, and an annoying spectator that seemingly had nothing better to do with her life. he merely glared at daya, jaw clenching so tightly he could almost hear it. the adrenaline was still rushing through his veins, so he brushed past the girl before he said something stupid or lost his temper.

 

it must be repeated: competition brought out the worst in him.
