      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

Now and then the sound is almost gone

1 post in this topic

The library at Hogwarts used to be one of her favourite places. A place of escapism and solitude, in which she could happily hide herself away for hours from the world until the sky fell into darkness and the book she was using as a gateway to another world soon became a makeshift pillow. How things had changed. How she had changed.


Perhaps it was the naivety that she held in her younger years that had caused her to look at the castle through rose-coloured glasses, seeing Hogwarts as nothing but magical, good, safe. She had been blind to the grey morality of the Hogwarts faculty. That was gone now though—now Eppy knew better. She knew that leaving Hogwarts behind was for the best and that she could only hope that the castle would become safer for the students that remained here.


Now the library was books, dust and stress.Students bent over crowded tables furiously studying. She could almost feel the anxiety radiating from those pouring over scribbled notes. Exams. Her nose wrinkled as she searched for a semi-secluded area where she too could stress over her half-arsed notes in hopes of achieving a halfway decent grade. Hopefully enough to get her a place to sit the Healer entrance exam and if not? Well the Gryffindor really wasn’t one for thinking that far ahead.


The sight of a lonely Hufflepuff wasn’t an unfamiliar one, just one that she hadn’t expected to see alone in the library. As far as Euphemia remembered, Edison hadn’t been one for academia with his plans grander than what Hogwarts provided him. Still, there he was and she didn’t hesitate to ambush him and his solitude, dropping her textbooks on the table before him, a grin on her face.


“Byrnes,” she greeted, not waiting for his welcome before settling in the chair opposite him. “It’s been a while.” It had, not that either of them had gone out of their way to seek out the other. Their friendship, if you could really call it a friendship, was based on merely crossing paths from time to time. “Studying?” Eppy asked the obvious, a small hand reached out, sliding the textbook he had propped open towards her, brow furrowing as her hazel eyes squinted at the illustration before her. “Palmistry?” She scoffed, shaking her head and letting out a disbelieving chuckle. “Divination is a load of crap.”
