      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

miscellaneous 

 The last thing you wanted a witch to do was get bored and start making her

own amusements, because witches sometimes had famously

erratic ideas about what was amusing.  

 

                                                                 name 

 

adalynn Variant of Adela; Pleasant, Good Humor

kenzie Fair

mercer an English occupational surname for a trader, or merchant.

 

                                                           birthday 

 

may thirteenth A birthday on the thirteenth day of the month indicates a riddle inside a contradiction, creativity, expansion and restlessness behind regularity and limitation. You are sensitive and spiritual, suffer through your environment, and are given to explosions of temper. Your good mind is offset by an exceptionally stubborn will, and while you have a strong love of nature, you seldom show it and then suffer because of it. Often misunderstood, you are considered temperamental and at times unreasonable, and while you are inclined to be dictatorial, you are an excellent manager. Your best success is in dealing with the earth - mining, geology, practical construction. A walking dichotomy, you love a uniform but hate war. Home is essential to your happiness.

 

You are sincere and easy going. Flattering and charming around are not your style. You care so much for freedom that often leads you to the difficult path. Because of your sincerity, most people find you easy to be around although you are sometimes too straightforward. Your gentleness, care and sincerity make you an attractive person. Even though you don't intend to be charming, but you naturally are, especially in the eyes of opposite sex.

 

                                                           astrology  

 

taurus Taurus is the second sign of the zodiac and is associated with the neck and throat. Positive characteristics include stamina, patience, practicality, frugality, creativity, a love of beauty and nature, faithfulness, loyalty, determination, sensuality, and affection. Negative characteristics are stubbornness (there's a reason why stubborn people are called bullheaded), materialism, resistance to change, laziness, a terrible temper once aroused, prejudice, and sometimes an unimaginative nature.

 

hufflepuff taurus  Taurus, the nature-loving bull, is a natural sign for Hufflepuffs to be born under. These wizards tend to specialize in herbs and nature spells, also in the husbandry and preservation of magical beasts. Their gentle good natures, open friendliness, hard work, patience, and politeness endear them to most everyone they meet. However, these Hufflepuff Taureans must be careful not to overwork themselves, lest they suffer breakdowns in health. It has been noticed that Hufflepuffs born under the sign of Taurus swing wildly between overwork and indolence, the lazy periods being used to recharge their energy; they seem to have a problem pacing themselves. They like their magical workrooms neat and tidy, and prefer peaceful occupations to dangerous or aggressive ones; most Hufflepuffs born under this sign wind up working as hedge witches, village herbalists, and midwives.

 

                                                              wand 

 

apple 

+Feminine.

+Fertility, peace, joy and harmony.

+Sacred to Goddess Rhiannon.

+Powerful choice when working with magic.

+Often used in love magic.

+Promotes visions.

 

unicorn tail hair 

Unicorn hair is a more subtle wand. It is also hands-down the best core for healing, as it picks up some of the healing capabilities of unicorn blood. Unicorn hair has a reputation of picking gentler or more cerebral users, so it is common amongst Hufflepuffs and Ravenclaws. More laid-back Gryffindors and subtler Slytherins may find themselves with a Unicorn hair wand.

 

As the Unicorn hair can be removed without the death of the creature, the Unicorn hair wands specialize in Charms as Charms may be extremely powerful, and the generality of them, expertly cast, are quite permanent, some may be fairly easily countered or canceled, however. The Healing power of the Unicorn lends itself well to Healing and other more subtle arts such as Seeing.

   Good For:

+Charms

+Healing

+Seeing

+COMC

+Divination

cottontail rabbit  Cottontail personalities are small, gentle individuals with a tendency towards shyness and whose instinct is to run at the first sign of danger. Their extraordinarily acute senses are well-developed and always on the lookout for any impending peril.

 

Cottontails are astoundingly cute and rely heavily on their soft personalities and vulnerable appearance to succeed.

 

These beautiful and skittish creatures have the most elegant imaginations of all; spending hours creating magnificent castles in air and populating them with an endless variety of whimsically pastoral characters. These romantic dreams dramatically influence the cottontail's behavior, and although they could be described as quirky, they're also friendly, warm, and understanding.

 

Although they are bright, cottontails often hide their intelligence when it interferes with their primary method of survival: cuteness! Almost all mammal personalities find them to be irresistibly attractive and they rarely need to employ their personal resources to succeed in their careers or relationships.

 

Their quiet, solitary behavior is often mistaken for timidness, but cottontails are actually quite aggressive in their search for resources.

 

Because they lack the physical strength of larger animal personalities, they must rely on their social skills to compete in the workplace.

 

Cottontails function best in situations that don't involve confrontations, which means they are not natural salespeople, but their ability to work with others means they are well-suited for careers in customer support, diplomacy, administrative work and nursing.

                                                           sorting 

 

the sorting hat says Alone? Never! Though you are a cheeky one, aren't you? I do love to see that love of adventure! Your loyalty to friends and family, however, eclipses everything else, taking me away from the house of the lions. Instead, I think you'll make a much better (and very mischevious, no doubt) addition to HUFFLEPUFF!

relationships 

 Open your eyes, and then, open your eyes again. 

 

elle morofgod +0
Elle is awesome! She was one of Ady's very first friends at Hogwarts, and they've been roommates since sorting. Elle also spent a summer with the Mercers and it was probably one of Ady's favorite ever.

maisie torrent +0
Maisie was also one of Ady's first friend's at school, and she's way more outgoing than the Hufflepuff, so whenever they spent time together, Maisie thought up something epic to do.

cayden harlow murray -1
Crazy Cay practically attacked Ady back in second year, but it was all a misunderstanding and now the two are practically inseparable. Annual Harpies games are a must, please. She's been unofficially adopted into the Mercer family, since Ady's dad thinks there's a distinct and deliberate lack of Gryffindors in the family.

finlay barclay +0
Finlay is Maisie's cousin, and they've had a bit of a house rivalry since 2nd year during the TriWizard Tournament, but some how ended up thrown together a few times, like going to the Valentine's Ball together in 3rd year, then studying for OWLs together throughout 5th till finally dating on and off and on again starting the summer before 6th year.

sophie coyle +0
Ady & Sophie met the summer after 5th year, when Sophie was having a hard time & Ady was a sympathetic shoulder to cry on. They quickly became good friends & Ady loves that Sophie is so outgoing & has gotten her to open up a bit.

rosalie borogrove +0
Rosie is a riot. In a very 'I hate everyone' sort of way. Good news though! She doesn't hate Ady, and that's really all that matters, thanks.

daniel gallahan +1
Dan is hysterical. He's really easy to talk to, and he & Ady have been gradually getting closer since around third year. Her dad also unofficially adopted him, because he's desperate for Gryffindors in the family.

azalea monet -1
Zaley's probably insane, but she's quite nice, and Ady's always gotten along great with her.

 elijah ferguson -1
Eli & Ady became friends through Cayden. They're best friends now though they occasionally have a sibling-like rivalry & can get a little jealous about how close the other is to Cay.

alex sanders +0
Alex is . . . well, Ady's not really sure what Alex is. She's smart enough to know he's only 'interested in her' to make Finlay mad, despite his attempts to convince her otherwise, but she doesn't quite know what to make of him.
