Student Applications / Gail Grey Student Application
« Last post by Gail Grey on 24/04/2017 at 23:53 »

Application for Hogwarts School




→ CHARACTER INFORMATION.

Name: Gail Grey

Birthday: 17 December 1933

Hometown: Leeds, UK

Bloodline:
Muggleborn / Halfblood / Pureblood / Unknown

Magical Strength (pick one):
Divination / Transfiguration / Charms / Conjuring & Summoning

Magical Weakness (pick one):
Divination / Transfiguration / Charms / Conjuring & Summoning

Year (pick two): 5th, 6th (I believe this is what is meant by "year"...?)

Biography:
If you are applying to be a first, second, or third year, your biography must be at least one hundred words long.
If you are applying to be a fourth year or above, your biography must be at least three hundred words long.


Gail was brought up in the north of England, most notably in Leeds. She was born to a wizard and a muggle in the year 1933, and has spent most of her life pushed to become a successful witch in the magical world. Her father, John Grey, is quite close to Gail and has been throughout her life. He is, generally, the one that Gail will approach with needs or concerns (this is likely because as a member of the magical community he can understand Gail's stresses better than her mother can). John Grey is a bookkeeper for a small (and sadly failing) bookshop in Diagon Alley--it would seem that Flourish and Blotts has begun to take over the market.

Gail's mother, Hannah Grey, is somewhat distanced from Gail. This is mostly Gail's doing. She finds Hannah hard to relate to, as she is a muggle, and seems to view the magical community as almost something of a novelty, and thinks it would be impressive, for lack of a better word, to have a talented witch in the family. Because of her mother, Gail is very much the type to constantly berate herself and feel extraordinarily inadequate when she fails or falls short in a task.

Her childhood was very much magic-based, and her parents--to the point of overbearance--quite literally groomed her to become a very academically and magically astute witch. As for Gail, she really would simply like to become a bookkeeper like her father, or perhaps a writer.

She has no siblings, as her mother desired to focus her parental attention solely upon a single child. Her abilities in magic at Hogwarts up to this point have been noteworthy, however, she is not satisfied and feels that she must "redeem" her academics in her last years at the school. Socially, her life has been dismal, as her need for study has made her unbearable for many people to be around.

→ ADDITIONAL INFORMATION.
Note: This section is optional, and is up to you to complete.

House Request: Slytherin

Personality: Easily irritated, dislikes speaking to loud or obnoxious people. (Can get along with people easily if they are neither of those things, however.) She is rather prideful, and while she will not voice it, can be rather judgmental of people or things that she deems stupid. Speaks quietly, and would prefer to be alone or with a close friend than with a group of people.

Appearance: Ivory skin, blue eyes. Mid-neck length black hair with blunt fringe, usually worn straight down. She has no tattoos or piercings. Her face is rather pixie-like, with a narrow nose and a small mouth.

→ SAMPLE ROLEPLAY.
Please reply to one of the Sample Roleplays below.

Gail's forehead was nearly touching the parchment that her hand was furiously running across. If word ever got back to her family that she'd landed herself in detention... She gave a shudder, refocusing her attention upon the essay. A Potions essay, of all things. Potions was far from her worst subject, but there was only so much you could write about a literal recipe before it became trite and entirely useless.

Her concentration was broken by a small voice. "Is Emma Birch here?" it asked. It seemed to be coming from outside the classroom. Were students even allowed in this part of the dungeons at this time of night without permission? She stood, and opened the door, stepping out and glancing around her, eyes narrowed in the dark.

She gained focus in a few moments, and her vision landed upon a girl--undoubtedly a first-year, and clearly terrified out of her wits.

"Are you all right?" Gail asked, her brows pulling together. "Are you a Slytherin? The dormitories are on the other side of the castle..."

The girl had been asking for Emma Birch... Emma Birch, as in, the number one prank that any timid-looking first year outside of Slytherin was a victim of? Gail gave a sigh, a weak smile on her lips. "Don't worry. Emma Birch isn't real. She's a prank. Go back to your dormitory before you're caught out here. And don't bother with whoever sent you down here anymore."

With this, she turned, headed back into the classroom, and took up her quill once again.

Hogwarts School Accepted / Re: Lita Chevalier, A Student
« Last post by Lita Chevalier on 24/04/2017 at 14:23 »

Application for Hogwarts School




→ CHARACTER INFORMATION.

Name: Lita Renea Chevalier

Birthday: 5 July 1936 | Fourteen

Hometown: Barcelona, Spain

Bloodline:
Muggleborn / Halfblood / Pureblood / Unknown

Magical Strength (pick one):
Divination / Transfiguration / Charms / Conjuring & Summoning

Magical Weakness (pick one):
Divination / Transfiguration / Charms / Conjuring & Summoning

Year (pick two): Fourth, Fifth

Biography:
An only child born to Pierre and Selena, the young girl had always gotten the best of everything.  The halfblood status didn’t mean much to her as child, growing up. It simply made her engage with her surroundings more than a purist would have. Perhaps with her blood status, her life was more relaxed than other children’s. This way, she could do as she pleased without too much reprimand from her parents. For example,  she enjoyed going to the parks and playing with the muggle children, knowing full and well to keep her magical abilities hidden from the world around her.

Her mother was well-known author in the wizarding community, having been a herbologist gone romance novel writer. Though she had few books published about the earlier, the latter was where she found her calling. She wrote for both communities, muggle and magic alike, finding success in both. Of course, there were some in the magical society that called her a traitor, but those were few and far between. It was easily forgotten once their noses were stuck in one of her books. She was rarely home, never giving her daughter the attention she craved.

Her father on the other hand was kind and gentle man towards her, never too harsh on his princess.  He, much like his wife, dabbled in both communities, despite his muggle blood. He was a well-known lawyer, mostly specializing in family affairs. But here and there, he meddled in those far darker, though his daughter wasn’t especially sure as to what they were. But she desperately wanted to find out.

Because she was born in France, naturally, Pierre wanted her to attend Beauxbatons for her educational career. And she did, for her first year. Wide eyed doe, she was, as she made friends during her first year. The school was beautiful, much different than she had envisioned for herself, but it made due to get through learning.

But then mum fell ill, and her family was moved to London, where she began her second year at Hogwarts. She fell into line instantly, loving every part of the school. It felt more like home than her previous school, and she felt happy at last.
During winter break, her mum was feeling much better, and so the family moved to Spain, buying a new house to appease her mother, but Lita’s father kept their home in France, and her in Hogwarts.

Currently, Lita is falling in love with her life back at Hogwarts. Her current best friends are Reggie Graham and Chloe Rose, dragging her to adventures she would have never tried on her own.


→ ADDITIONAL INFORMATION.
Note: This section is optional, and is up to you to complete.

House Request: Ravenclaw

Personality: Though Lita is shy and not quite confident in herself quite yet, the girl shows an entirely different side of herself when it comes to magic, where her confidence will make an appearance but leave just as fast as it came. The teenager is loyal and smart and protective. She is always there when a friend is in need, when someone wants to talk. Always in a positive light, she tries to find the good in everyone, the brighter side of any situation.

Appearance: Standing at 5'1, she's on the shorter side. Shoulder length deep chestnut hair, almost black as night, but not quite. Bright green eyes, turning hazel during the winter months, depending mostly on the weather, but surprisingly more on her mood. Typically as she spoke, a blush could be found rising on her cheeks, a soft smile never leaving.

→ SAMPLE ROLEPLAY.
Please reply to one of the Sample Roleplays below.

The night was growing cold, bringing promises of snow or storms, quite possibly both. The cold found a way into the darkness of her dorm, waking her from a heavy sleep. As she rubbed her eyes, the girl found herself wide awake, having fell asleep still in uniform, atop of her schoolbooks and parchment and quills, bringing a small chuckle to break the silence of the empty dorm.

What time was it?

There wasn't a clock on sight, but she decided to get up and stretch her legs a bit. The stiffness was hard to shake, pressing her full weight onto the right one, the familiar pain of pins and needles finding its way to a soft gasp from the girl.

Once out of the tower, it didn't take long for the feeling to dissipate, and she quickly found her way down towards the dungeons. Wrapping her arms tighter around her body, the cold was more prominent. It was eerily creepy, not something she had noticed before. The hairs on the back of her neck stood up, bringing a chill to her spine.

"H-h-hello?"

A young voice rippled through the silence, bringing Lita to look behind her, only to find a shorter blonde student.

"Hello! Is Emma Birch here?"

"I doubt that, but who knows," she replied to the girl's vast question.

Hogwarts School Accepted / Re: Basil Cassiel
« Last post by Basil Cassiel on 23/04/2017 at 23:15 »

Application for Hogwarts School




→ CHARACTER INFORMATION.

Name:
Basil Ingram Archibald Augustus Birchgrove Cassiel.

Birthday:
September 15, 1938 (aged 12).

Hometown:
Nucet, Romania (lives in London, England now).

Bloodline:
Pureblood.

Magical Strength (pick one):
Charms

Magical Weakness (pick one):
Divination.

Year:
1 or 2 (Durmstrang doesn't necessarily require students to have turned eleven before September 1 like Hogwarts does, so he could have attended one year there already.)    Per message from Basil, 2nd year is 1st choice, 1st year is 2nd choice. - A.I.

Biography:
Born on September 15 in the year of 1938 into an ancient wizarding family of great wealth and impeccable lineage, Basil was born and raised in the northern parts of Romania at ‘The Dark Castle’ as the second child of Edward and Evona Cassiel and the younger brother Alastor. Once easily the largest and grandest building for miles around, by the the early twentieth century, 'Castelul întuneric’ had become every bit the bleak and forbidding sight its grotesque history suggested: A grim, decrepit, windswept old place with secret tunnels and passages running both around and beneath the building which carried an air of dark origin and intent. Only gradually did young Basil become aware that there was something strange, both about the manner in which he was raised and their parents’ marriage.

Haughty, blunt and domineering, behind their veneers of respectability, the Cassiels have traditionally in many respects been both a rather unprincipled and egotistical lot, and Basil's parents are anything but an exception to the rule, encouraging an environment dominated by fear and intimidation from their sons, using both corporal punishment and and a wide variety of unfriendly jinxes and hexes to keep their children in line. Never known for their generosity, Edward and Evona both lived largely by the principles of children being seen and not heard, tasking the servants with looking after the boys, whom they granted the free run of the castle in exchange for them being left largely alone to enjoy their library and well-stocked cellar in peace. Uncared for and feeling unloved, growing up in the lap of luxury in a castle with servants to heed their every whim was only a slight compensation.

That is not to say, however, they were completely absent from the children's life, whom they educated in reading, writing and simple maths right before burdening them with the expectations of upholding the family name from an early age. Forbidden from going anywhere near the nearby settlements for no other reason that they were comprised solely by members the non-magical community, the two brothers grew up spending much of their time under the strict gaze of his father, whom the Cassiel brothers would only dare to cross if the alternative was to cross their mother. Despite being independently wealthy with no need for work, Mr. Cassiel maintained that nothing was ever accomplished by ‘lounging’, resulting in some of Basil’s earliest memories being of him accompanying their father by Portkey to the Romanian Dragon Sanctuary, where he made Basil and Alastor both look on as those working there extracted blood and heart-strings of recently deceased specimens and hand it over to his father in exchange for gold, who intended to sell them to local wandmakers and apothecaries respectively. United almost exclusively by their shared fear of their parents, the bond between Basil and his brother is close, but not necessarily all that affectionate.

Regarding his brother as a snide, sarcastic fellow with little patience for the feelings and problems of others, Basil has very little in common with Alastor other than the distinct similarity in appearance that comes with being brothers. Perhaps because his accomplishments has gone unrecognized for so long, Alastor seem to feel the need to be powerful, boasting about his own capabilities to Basil’s face, even the petty ones and taking great pleasure in bullying his younger sibling.

Most notably, he once sent a check on a significant amount of gold to a local Hag in exchange for having her kidnapping little Basil, (aged five at the time), locking him inside a steel cage and pretend she was going to eat him, only to wave it away as an April Fool’s Day joke. About this, however, their parents was not amused. Alastor has still the marks after their father caned him, forever blaming Basil for not lying about where he had been for those six hours he had been missing.

Perhaps the worst of all the “pranks” he ever pulled on his little brother, referred to simply as “the incident”, was when he once crept into the bedroom where Basil slept in the dead of night, setting off the entire package of secretly imported bundle of Dr Filibuster's Fabulous Wet-Start, No-Heat Fireworks he had received for his birthday a few days earlier behind their parents back by an estranged uncle. Though he merely had meant for them to fly out from the bedroom window and wake up their parents, subsequently getting Basil into trouble, something went horribly wrong when one of them exploded prematurely, and would almost certainly have proved fatal to the youngest member of the family had not their pet Kneazle (to which Basil was strongly attached) leapt in the way, shielding the then eight year old sleeping boy from the impact. This is notably one of the very few times Basil has known his big brother to ever show genuine remorse and apologize for mischief. Although Basil never truly forgave him and seldom speak of it, Basil has discovered that whenever it is brought up within earshot of Alastor, he becomes quieter than usual and tends to tune down the malice for a day or two. However, while whatever remorse his big brother feels is undoubtedly genuine, Basil is still quite convinced that if it is brought up too often, Alastor just might start viewing it as 'a tool to make him weak' as opposed to a reminder of the one time he admittedly 'went too far'. As such, he wisely refrain from mentioning it too often for this second reason as well. However, when it comes down to it, due to their shared fascination with causing chaos, there is very little to choose between Alastor K. Cassel and a Poltergeist.

Having a great deal more common sense, subtlety and being by far the most emotionally grounded in his family, Basil was happier than anyone to learn his cousin Circe was still alive, even though he has never met her.


→ ADDITIONAL INFORMATION.

House Request:
Gryffindor.

Personality:
Understandably influenced by the prejudice and bigoted ways his parents have so vigorously advocated all his life, Basil Cassiel is haughty and highly opinionated, not to mention quite unafraid to speak his mind if he believes someone are in the wrong. This, however, is a good thing, as it means that he is as unafraid to stand up for others as he is to stand up for himself, should he see anyone treated unjustly. Though he admittedly maintains a quiet belief in the superiority of his own family and a cast-iron security in his own judgment, he will seldom let an opportunity to “put his foot down” slip through his fingers during verbal conflict, finding great joy in taking the moral high ground and making people who treat people badly feel stupid by finding flaws in their logic. Ultimately, he is not quite the pampered little prince Alastor were at that age, but by contrast, Basil is as normal a boy he could possibly be under the circumstances, occasionally forgetting that there even is such a thing as dignity in favour of just having fun, especially whenever Quidditch is involved.

(OOC note: I suspect that as he embarks on the journey of his magical education, he will for the first time get actual friends and playmates at Hogwarts, which will lead to him loosening up and becoming much more likable).

Appearance:
Basil  looks like a dark haired version of Alastor, had the latter been a preteen and gives an impression of being distinctly less vicious.

→ SAMPLE ROLEPLAY.

Option 2

Basil stood before the boy whose rat he were holding by the tail with a look of disgust, eying the boy's sleeve warily before clearing his throat and, resisting the temptation to call him a mean name as he did so: If he did, he would probably just tell on him and they'd loose house points or something like that. Extending his hand, holding up the rat, casually ignoring the squeaks, twists and turn the pitiful little creature made in an attempt to get free, and Basil smirked to himself as he saw the rat try to raise his upper body to try and bite his hand, only for its upper body strength to be insufficient, making it fall limp-like down again, dangling again.

"Is this yours?"

With his free hand, he took hold around the rat, closing his hand firmly, not hurting it, yet his grasp hard enough to make sure that if bitten, he would not simply let go either, and held it out to the other student. He had presumed it had either escaped or been smuggled out of the Transfiguration department, having heard stories how some of the older students often had rats handed out in class by the teacher. It had been his hope that in delivering it to the staff room, he might have earned for himself a couple of house points, but when he spotted the his peer making a mess out of the flower beds, he had put two and two together and begrudgingly walked up to him.

"I'd use a handkerchief next time, if I were you, because that robe is not a pretty sight..."

Hi Basil!

Your application looks great. However, there's a minor change you'll need to make before we can accept your application.

This is an AU. We don't have any of the same characters at Hogwarts as there are in the books. In our universe, Peeves doesn't exist. You'll need to remove the reference to him from your bio. (While you don't necessarily need to change this, since Basil didn't see it himself, I'd like to point out that our professors come up with their own lessons - and not many of the Transfiguration ones in the past few terms have used rats in their lessons.)

Once you make that change, please post your entire revised application below and we'll be happy to take another look. Thanks!
