Application for Hogwarts School




→ CHARACTER INFORMATION.

Name: Marie Anne Comtois

Birthday: May 12th, 1938

Hometown: Montebeliard, Franche-Comte, Republic of France.

Bloodline:
Unknown (claims to be a Pureblood for census purposes)

Magical Strength (pick one):
Transfiguration

Magical Weakness (pick one):
Conjuring & Summoning

Year (pick two): Fourth and Third year.

Biography:

Born to her mother, Isabelle Corinne Demargo and her father, Creon, she was raised almost entirely in France with the exception of her father's weekend visits during the summertime of each year. She was surrounded, from an early age, by her mother's love and care; though she was a woman of only mild means, Isabelle attempted to do her due diligence with regards to her daughter's upbeinging; in that vain, Maries family developed a system for Guardianship and custodial duties, whereby her mother would be her primary guardian, while her father would maintain joint custody, and her grandmother was allowed to visit her for the purpose of financing her education.

At the age of eleven, her grand mother decided to have her enrolled at the Beauxbatons Academy of Magic. She would attend that school for about three years, before her father decided that she should transfer to his alma mater of Hogwarts; her grandmother, Adelaide, seemed joyful at times that she seemed to have inherited her gift with transfiguration, while dismissing her father and grandfather's complaints regarding her ability with Charms. Though she maintained an E average throughout her tenure at the Academy, it was well known for sometime that she had received a howler from her Grandfather, Oristes, for her failure to get an E on her charms exam in her second year.

→ SAMPLE ROLEPLAY.
You come across one of these posts on the site. Please select one & reply as your character. Remember, you can only roleplay your own character's actions, not Evangeline's or Hugh's.

Option I:

The dungeons. A place eleven-year-old Evangeline had not yet travelled since her arrival at Hogwarts.

A place she really was just fine with not knowing; but it was too late. The dare had been accepted, even if it had been done in fear of being kicked out of Gryffindor, like the older girls had said she would because Gryffindors were supposed to be brave.

The air changed instantly when she hit the main corridor of the dungeons. The dampness was almost too much for her and she instinctively took a deep breath to avoid the sensation of being suffocated. There was also a sour burning smell which Evangeline assumed was from many, many Potions lessons.

Further and further she walked, her steps so slow and gentle they made no noise against the stone walls and floor. The feeling that she wasn't alone crept up her spine and raised the tiny hair on the back of her neck. Shivering, Evangeline wrapped her arms around herself. Suddenly, she missed the warmth and comfort of the Gryffindor common room. The fire was always going and it made her feel at ease.

Why had she let those girls talk her into this? She was only eleven, she didn't have to be brave. Surely the Headmistress would not kick her out of Hogwarts for not being brave.

If only she had these thoughts while being dared to search for the ghost of one Emma Birch, whom supposedly haunted the dungeons. It was not, Evangeline had learned, the place where the sixteen-year-old girl's life had ended but as she had been from the house with a snake as its mascot, it was the place her spirit had returned to. That common room was down here somewhere, she'd been told.

Something - the small blonde girl wasn't quite sure what - but something made her stop in her tracks suddenly. There was a low, dull thumping noise. Or maybe that was her heart beating so loudly she thought it was coming from outside her body.

"H-h-hello?" Her voice was barely above a whisper.

Remembering that she was supposed to be brave, Evangeline tried again.

"Hello! Is Emma Birch here?"

The sound of her own words bouncing back at her off the walls made her jump.


Marie smiled at the young woman; it was clear that she was not from her house. A part of her felt a kindred spirit; another part felt something like sadness mixed with disdain. Her mixed upbringing left her with conflicted emotions many times, yet her inner humanity had not been as yet snuffed out. With a stride forward, she walked towards the young woman, her wand in hand.

With a whispered 'lumos', she was able to get a deeper look. She did not seem unkind; rather, she seemed to be afraid and possibly alone.

"Hello, ma'am" said Marie "Are you alone?"

Hi Marie!

Since you have Fourth Year listed as your first choice for year, your biography should be at least 300 words. It's currently not long enough.

Once you add more to your bio, post your revised application below and we'll take another look!
and if I'm flying solo, at least I'm flying free
to those who ground me, take a message back from me
tell them how I am defying gravity

Biography:

Born to her mother, Isabelle Corinne Demargo and her father, Creon, she was raised almost entirely in France with the exception of her father's weekend visits during the summertime of each year. She was surrounded, from an early age, by her mother's love and care; though she was a woman of only mild means, Isabelle attempted to do her due diligence with regards to her daughter's upbeinging; in that vain, Maries family developed a system for Guardianship and custodial duties, whereby her mother would be her primary guardian, while her father would maintain joint custody, and her grandmother was allowed to visit her for the purpose of financing her education.

At the age of eleven, her grand mother decided to have her enrolled at the Beauxbatons Academy of Magic. She would attend that school for about three years, before her father decided that she should transfer to his alma mater of Hogwarts; her grandmother, Adelaide, seemed joyful at times that she seemed to have inherited her gift with transfiguration, while dismissing her father and grandfather's complaints regarding her ability with Charms. Though she maintained an E average throughout her tenure at the Academy, it was well known for sometime that she had received a howler from her Grandfather, Oristes, for her failure to get an E on her charms exam in her second year.

Indeed, things were not always well for her; despite the somewhat tender feelings between her father and herself, Creon failed on multiple occassions to sheild her from his father's wrath. Oristes often took a domineering and even hostile approach to his grand daughter's health and mental well being; once, upon being notified of her failure to, in the words of the servant present, "dress properly", he threatened to have her crucioed until she understood that she was not to go "dressed up like a [bed warmer]".  Despite her grandmother's interference, she knew well that her grandfather would have carried out the threat.

Her father and grandmother, however, doted on her whenever it was within their power to do so; for her sixth birthday, her father gifted her a horse to ride on at her pleasure. Meanwhile, her grandmother gave her an early tour of the Academy during its summer break in 1945. She was allowed free reign on the library and grounds, and was often given access to floo network while in the British isles. Her mother, of course, was supportive. Yet Marie often worried about the feeling of isolation that she knew her mother often felt.

Marie's face was kind and gentle; she bid no harm to the young woman who looked every inch the Gryffindor. Indeed, she could not help but think somewhat derisively of the idiocy of the House system; why should this young woman be forced to walk alone in the dark, based off of the arbitrary decision of a hat? To her, it made little sense to have that happen.
