PARENTS ARE REMINDED THAT FIRST YEARS ARE NOT ALLOWED THEIR OWN BROOMSTICKS


Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. This school is known throughout the world as one of the most prestigious magical schools in the world, at least, if you are a witch or wizard. Many wait young children have waited their entire young lives for this letter, some even fearing the disgrace of being marked as a Squib, an non-magical person born of magical parents. Others open this letter with wonder and longing as they debate inwardly whether they are indeed a witch or wizard or if someone is playing a joke on them. Nevertheless, they are entranced as the Hogwarts Professor that hand-delivered the letter explains their magical nature and what awaits them beyond the eyes of Muggles.

It has been three years since the famous Battle of Hogwarts that decided the fate of not only Magical Britain, but Muggle Britain and possibly the entire world. In the three years since the Second Wizarding War in Britain, the dark times of Lord Voldemort's brief return seem like a passing dream, save for those who had lost loved ones during that time. Progressive and Traditional forces continue to battle within the Ministry of Magic, which has taken strides to regain its credibility, Diagon Alley continues to be a bustling district of magical shops and artisans, and, most importantly, life goes on free of the shadow cast by Lord Voldemort. Within this time of peace, Hogwarts continues to thrive as the country's most important magical school, despite the loss of Albus Dumbledore, its venerable Headmaster. In its own magical way, Hogwarts continues to be neither wholly different from the way it was in previous generations nor wholly the same as new students enter its distinguished halls, some entering the Wizarding World for the very first time in their lives.

Of course, Hogwarts no longer houses such famous names as Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, Ron Weasley, or the famous Weasley twins, but that is how it should be. This year, a new generation of First-Years enter the school with their whole lives ahead of them with lessons ahead to help the grow into their magical powers and friendships to last throughout their apprenticeship in Hogwarts and beyond.

Houses
Image

Gryffindor is well known for bravery, daring, nerve, and chivalry. The house colours are scarlet and gold, and the house is symbolized by a lion. The entrance to the common room is on the seventh floor hidden behind a portrait of a fat lady. In order to get in to the common room Gryffindor students must say the right password. This is the "heroic" house as it values boldness and bravery, but some Gryffindors can be bullies. Notable Gryffindors are: Harry Potter, Albus Dumbledore, Hermoine Granger, and Ron Weasley

Image

Hufflepuff is well-known for loyalty, fair play, honesty, and tolerance. The house is symbolized by a badger, and the house colours are yellow and black. Its common room is near the kitchens. Noted Hufflepuffs are Cedric Diggory and Susan Bones

Image

Ravenclaw values wit, creativity, and wisdom. The house is symbolized by an eagle and the house colours are blue and bronze. However the house colours are portrayed as blue and silver in the movies with a raven symbolizing the house, and the interior of the house room is decorated with blue and gold. The Ravenclaw common room is located on a high tower. To enter, rather than give a password, one must answer a riddle from an eagle door knocker, such as "Where do vanished objects go?" or "Which came first, the Phoenix or the flame?" Noted Ravenclaws are Luna Lovegood, Cho Chang, and Padma Patil.

Image

Slytherin values ambition, cleverness, cunning, resourcefulness, and pure blood heritage. The house is symbolized by a serpent, and the house colours are green and silver. Its common room is in the dungeons through three stones. Slytherin has a dark reputation, but not all or even most people in Slytherin are dark. Noted Slytherins are Severus Snape, Tom Riddle, and Horace Slughorn.

Canon

If you are unsure about what is canon, please consult the Harry Potter wiki: http://harrypotter.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page

Toggle Rules

1. This is a literate roleplay, which means that one must write at least paragraphs per post. Additional length is, of course, welcome.
2. Please use proper spelling and grammar; we all make mistakes, but it is required that you keep do your utmost effort to keep your posts pristine.
3. No canon-characters beyond teachers and other personal. This is three years after the 7th Harry Potter book, providing ample time for known canon students to graduate. Profiles for teachers may be submitted, but, otherwise, will be played by myself or by volunteers.
4. Respect your fellow role-players or your character will find him or herself in St. Mungo's for the rest of the term.
5. All students will be first-years. This roleplay is designed to be the first in a series of seven that will follow our character's student careers.
6. Appropriate ages are to be used; students will be first-years and therefore 11 or turning 11 very soon.
7. No god-modding; that means spells do not automatically hit. In fairness, however, I ask that your characters don't dodge all spells all the time. Be realistic.
8. Parseltongue, visions, etc. and other special abilities are allowed, but cannot be abused. No super-secret snake magic, no visions of the future every five minutes, and no showing off if you can speak Parseltongue. The Wizarding World still has its prejudices.
9. You may take as many characters as you want, but you must be able to handle them.

Characterization: Proficient Plot: In-Progress Depth: Proficient Style: Advanced Mechanics: Advanced Overall: Proficient
Music wrote:Characterization seems to be very good for the most part, with a few exceptions. The sheer number of posters makes it rather confusing to tell who is who, at least until the characters have deviated from the same 'blank slate' mentality of the first-year student. The plot is character-based, and the RP is not far enough along yet to say whether an official plot itself will develop. While it is clear that the RP is going to occur at Hogwarts, it is so far unclear how much of an effect the magical world will have on the characters or the plot line. Style and mechanics of most players is highly developed. It is clear that a significant motivation to create this roleplay was to 'prove', in a way, that a literate Harry Potter roleplay is possible. Well, so far, this initiative has succeeded. I hope to have the time to continue reading your work.

Re: [OOC] Hogwarts: Year One

Ah. I'm sorry. This roleplay is dead. :(

Re: [OOC] Hogwarts: Year One

Umm... this is my first attempt at role-playing. I hope I've started off right. I've entered a character, Alice Langden, and hope to be accepted soon :)

Re: [OOC] Hogwarts: Year One

LOL. Understood. I'm waiting on you and her too, just show Oni knows.

Re: [OOC] Hogwarts: Year One

Hey almost, I'm waiting for Oran, just so you know I'm not randomly flaking out or anything. (^_^)

Re: [OOC] Hogwarts: Year One

It's alright. We understand about computer problems. I myself am behind because college just started and the workload is heavy.

Re: [OOC] Hogwarts: Year One

I'm sorry I have not posted. I really liked the idea of joining when I found this a few months ago, but my computer crashed and I have been unable to fix it.

Re: [OOC] Hogwarts: Year One

Sounds good to me. I'll message Oran and if all goes well, I should timeskip tomorrow or the day after at the latest.

Re: [OOC] Hogwarts: Year One

Sure, that would be awesome. If Oran gets in on it too, we can always make a proper Golden Trio v 2.0 adventure out of the search. (^_^)

Re: [OOC] Hogwarts: Year One

Hmm, John could be sneaking around at night looking for whatever Professor C seeks and Astrea could spot him on the map.

We could wait for Oran though. If you want, I'll send her a message.

Re: [OOC] Hogwarts: Year One

Hn... I was waiting for either Professor C or possibly Oran, but I'd be in favor of a timeskip. When to, though?

Re: [OOC] Hogwarts: Year One

I was actually waiting for Professor C or that Ravenclaw girl in the meeting. Or maybe something to happen. Timeskip anyone?

Re: [OOC] Hogwarts: Year One

Nobody's waiting for me, are they?

Re: [OOC] Hogwarts: Year One

Sounds good to me. Apple wants Professor C to talk to John, but the meeting can still end.

Re: [OOC] Hogwarts: Year One

Hey almost, I don't know if there's anything else you want to do at this particular meeting, but I'm fresh out of a plan, so if there's something else, just let me know. Otherwise, I guess the orientation is adjourned?

Re: [OOC] Hogwarts: Year One

Haha, yup. Holidays can be like that. I've left room so that Ian could be at the meeting if you like, Oran. Astrea obviously is not, but she's busy with the Marauders at the moment lol. I'm sure the part where she notices a cluster of people behind a random portrait will be interesting. (^_^)

Re: [OOC] Hogwarts: Year One

Okay, all those relatives and their holidays... They've locked me in a kitchen the past 4 days... Now life should be back in order, excluding whatever I'm doing to myself on New Years... But I'm glad you've all sorted it out! :D

Re: [OOC] Hogwarts: Year One

Why, thank you. I thought it was pretty par for the course myself, but inventing NPCs is always fun. =)

Re: [OOC] Hogwarts: Year One

Ah. Okay then. LOL. Was confused for a little bit. Awesome post by the way, Kurokiku.

Re: [OOC] Hogwarts: Year One

Lol, Machina's not, sorry. I was having trouble accessing my account last night, and since I know her IRL, she let me use hers to check stuff. I forgot to tell ya it was me.

I, however, will be more than happy to do so. =)
