      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

awake my soul

 

Name: Abel Monroe King X

House: Hufflepuff

Mr King, in opposition to what your surname might suggest, I can see that you’re a very down-to-earth boy. Yes, you aren’t one who takes to flights of fancy or sugar-coating the harder things in life. Your view is realistic and well-informed by past experience. Ah yes, you have great respect for those who pioneer new feats and this paired with your fearless attitude would make you a fair Gryffindor. However, I don’t think that’s the place for you. With your loyalty and tendency towards kindness rather than an intrinsic need to be in the right all the time, I think you will find yourself more at home among the hard-working badgers of HUFFLEPUFF!

Birthday: September 2nd, 2016

"Hufflepuff Virgos are incredibly hard workers and bright, if quiet, students. They excel at any magical arts related to domestic life or healing. They must be watched carefully to ensure that they do not overstress their systems by performing too much work; these wizards have a very hard time learning the meaning of the word "no," and are thus easily taken advantage of for their work ethic. Let other people do the leading and the decision making; they are content to serve. And on their backs rests the industry of the world. Without people like them, civilization might grind to a halt, for who would take care of the practical details?" - Harry Potter Astrology

Hometown: Thurso, Scottland

Pureblood/half blood/muggle born: Halfblood

Wand:

11 ¾ inch hawthorn, unicorn tail hair

Hawthorn - "Masculine. Associated with the Owl. Element of air. Provides psychic protection. Used for charms.

Confidence, patience, weather working and banishment of evil spirits. The wandmaker Gregorovitch wrote that hawthorn ‘makes a strange, contradictory wand, as full of paradoxes as the tree that gave it birth, whose leaves and blossoms heal, and yet whose cut branches smell of death.’ While I disagree with many of Gregorovitch’s conclusions, we concur about hawthorn wands, which are complex and intriguing in their natures, just like the owners who best suit them. Hawthorn wands may be particularly suited to healing magic, but they are also adept at curses, and I have generally observed that the hawthorn wand seems most at home with a conflicted nature, or with a witch or wizard passing through a period of turmoil. Hawthorn is not easy to master, however, and I would only ever consider placing a hawthorn wand in the hands of a witch or wizard of proven talent, or the consequences might be dangerous. Hawthorn wands have a notable peculiarity: their spells can, when badly handled, backfire." - Pottermore

 

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" - Pottermore

Patronus

Alley Cat: are opportunistic feeders—they will eat whatever food is easiest to find. Cats have lived outdoors for thousands of years; they are part of the natural landscape.

Boggart

Confinement - he is afraid of being trapped indoors forever. Small spaces don't bother him but if he knows that he has to be in somewhere that has no windows for more that a few hours he gets unnerved.

Amortentia

The smell of the ground right after it rains, heavy salty sea mist, fresh baked bread, and Pumpkin Ale.

Five words that best describe your character:

Fearless

He is very logical when it comes to fear. He figures that if something happens it is going to happen. He feels as if there is nothing to fear. He doesn't consider himself brave - he won't put himself in harm's way to be a hero. He doesn't feel that there is anything to fear.

Loyal

Abel is a very loyal boy. He is the type of friend that will stand by you even if you are wrong. He has never been a fickle person. Once he considers you a friend he is like glue. If you ever need help with anything Abel is your guy.

Blunt

He is not very good with being delicate with his words. He never sugar coats his words. He is the type to get to the point and not dance around things. His tact with words is often lacking.

Streetwise

Abel is a very logical. He might not get numbers or complex thoughts but he has a lot of common sense. He feels more at home when he can be doing something rather than people explaining things to him. He can read people fairly well.

Quiet

Abel isn't going to talk to you just for the sake of talking. When he has something to say he will say it. Otherwise expect silence from the young man. He means ever word he says - even if they are few.

Appearance:

Build - Abel is thin above all else. He is bony. He has broad shoulders and a head that is slightly rectangular shaped.

Hair - His hair is usually short and shaved close to his head in a military like style. Since it is so short he often appears to have brown hair If given the chance to grow out a little it would be a dirty blond color.

Eyes - Small, icy blue.

Height - 4'5"-5'11"

Mother's name: Eve Rose Vanderbilt - King

Brief description (occupation, blood, etc): She is a pure blooded witch. She is a Potions Experimenter for the Ministry of Magic.
