      How to get sorted   03/03/2018

      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.   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, March 3rd Sorting Form closes: Friday, April 6th (No forms will be accepted after this date) The Sorting Ceremony closes: Sunday, April 8th, about 10am Central Time You find out your new house: Sunday, April 8th, 11 am Central Time First day of the new school year: Monday, April 9th   (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

All I Care About is You and Me and Us

"Alright... alright, Let's go."  Seeley said, nudging Des' arm and shoving her things back into her bag.  Potion's class had finally ended and most everyone, including Juan, had already ushered out of the room as Desmond still sat, head resting on the desktop and Seeley frowned at him, worry etched on her face.  "I don't care what you say, you're going to the hospital wing." 


She knew he didn't want to go, and to be honest it was a bit awkward for her to be the one pushing him so hard to be going with the way things were but she wasn't able to bring herself to walk away if there was actually something wrong.  Perhaps the last time he'd hit his head - that time on the dueling platform - it had been just nothing, but he'd also been punched pretty hard in the jaw and she'd decided better safe than sorry for him.  


Reaching for his things, she tossed the strap of his bag over her other shoulder as he got up (if he felt obligated to take it back, she'd let him but for now she at least felt like she was being useful)  she led the way out of the classroom, making sure to tell Professor Sprout that she'd get him there safely as the woman hurried to send off a note to warn the staff that they were coming like she'd mentioned earlier in class.  


Several flights of stairs later they arrived in the hospital wing and Seeley reached for one of the forms near the desk at the entrance and began to fill it out, sitting down in one of the chairs next to him and peppering him with questions anytime she reached one she didn't know exactly how to answer.  


"You are kind of tall... you're not part giant right?" She smiled to herself, if nothing else she was making sure he stayed awake.  "And you're not allergic to anything, right?"  






OOC Form:

Patient Name, House & Year:  Desmond Potter, Hufflepuff Second Year

Did they have to go to the hospital wing, couldn’t they just go back to their common room and get him ice for his head. “Why do we have to go, they are just going to tell me to put ice on it.” And sleep, that was the other thing that he wanted to do, just sleep for the rest of the day.


Knowing that he wasn’t going to win this fight, he was going to have to walk to the hospital wing with Seeley. It was strange knowing that Seeley was making him go, if this had been a few weeks ago, he wouldn’t be heading this way. Knowing that they were friends, this showed that she cared for him. Even if it was nothing more than just being friends.


He went to get his bag, but it seemed like Seeley got it. “I can carry it Seely.” HE told her, but she put I on her shoulder. Getting up from his seat, he knew it was time to head to Herbology. “Should my head still be hurting like this?” Not thinking that he took the hit that hard, but it was the dungeon floor.


Making there was there, he thought these stairs were going to make it worst. As soon as they walked in, he took a seat. Still holding his head.


Seeley asked if he part giant, “I don’t think that anyone in my family is a giant.” There were friends of the family that were, but no one he knew was. “School work.” Telling her what he was allergic to, “but for real, I’m not allergic to anything.”

Assistant Post


It had been a quiet day thus far. Kermit had arrived in order to try and help out as best he could. After almost thirty minutes of sorting through supplies, the boy was just about ready to sigh in frustration. He adored being able to help people - he just wished that he would be able to learn more hands on instead of theory. Deep down he knew that everything he did to assist in the wing was helpful to Healer Lunes, which caused him joy, as she had given the assistance all a chance to shine. 


Almost as if something had read his mind there was movement from the doorway. Kermit placed down the paste he had been adding to the supply record, as he looked up and frowned. The two persons who had arrived were familiar to him in different ways. They were both hufflepuffs, both second years, and one of them he had gotten to know the year before. 


"Despot." Kermit said, the nickname they used throughout quidditch slipping out. "And you are..Seeley..." he said a little unsure he had gotten the girls name right. "Fighting? Desmond you should know better than that."

"Oh... stop it." She shook her head and finished the rest of the form.   "You're not actually allergic to school work, no matter how much you wish you were." Honestly, this boy was going to drive her mad.  He already did, in a lot of ways.   


Sighing, she glanced up just in time to see an older hufflepuff making his way towards the two of them and she smiled and handed over the form.  "Yea... Seeley.  Hi."  


After giving fifth year the chance to look over the form she started rambling again.  "You'd think he'd know better, he's so tall that it's a long way down to hit the ground but whatever." She sighed, rolling her eyes.   "But, he didn't start it... if that means anything.  He was also, kinda lit on fire too, but Professor Sprout took care of that."  


Also, she wasn't really gonna draw any extra attention to Desmond's bum - where the fire had been lit.  If he was gonna have that checked, he was on his own.

“Yes I am, I get sick every time we are given homework.” Why else didn’t he ever turn it in, there was a reason behind it. Maybe he wasn’t allergic to it, but he knew that it made him sick to think that he had to do homework while living in school They shouldn’t have homework, but it seems like that wasn’t ever going to change.


His quidditch co-captain was the one taking care of them today. “Hey Kermit.” He said, still holding his hand to his head. There was now a bump on it.


“It wasn’t my fault.” He started to say, but it seemed like Seeley went along with it and told Kermit the story. At least she left out the part that it was hit butt was set on fire. Putting his head down, he just wanted to sleep. Was it that hard. Now that he was here, couldn’t he just lay down and take a nap. And he could skip the rest of his lessons.


“I do know better, than to fight. Please don’t tell Merc I want to at least play for quidditch next year.” If it was back by then.  He hoped that it was, he missed playing quidditch.

Kermit eyed the two in front of him. He stopped writing on the parchment, and rose an eyebrow, as he wondered whether he was like that when he was in second year.


“I won’t tell Merc.” He said finally, not that he was ever going to willingly talk to him outside of quidditch. It wasn’t like their partnership had been completely smooth sailing – Mercutio still wanted to ban all the cookies in the world – but it was nice to know he had something over Desmond for a little while.


“You really need to work on your defence.” Kermit said as he brought his fingers and touched the back of Desmond’s head to check the damage. “I mean if this is what you look like… what about the other guy? Not that I am trying to encourage any fighting…”


He stopped talking as he wondered towards where they kept the everyday potions.


“A simple bruise remover paste will get rid of that nice purple spot forming on your jaw within the hour.” He said, grabbing the small pot, and placing it down on the bed. He then grabbed his wand. “This may sting a little... episkey!” he said, waving the tip of his wand at the back of Desmond’s head.
