Biography: (100 words minimum.)

Living back in California was crazy but when you are part of a large family, things can get even crazier. Juliette Celeste Rose grew up in a huge, loving household where everything can be chaotic. Having 4 siblings, 2 older and 2 younger, Jules was always stuck in the middle. With a busy stay at home mother who takes care of everyone and is beloved by all family members and a care-free father, Juliette never had a tough upbringing. Some people might even say she was spoiled.

Growing up, Juliette attended Ilvermorny and enjoyed it all the way till graduation. As she finished her magical schooling, Juliette didn't know what to do. Either she stayed at home to help her mom around the house and try to find a job that would accept a woman or try living over in Europe.

After sending a letter to her other Rose family members across the sea, Juliette waited patiently for a letter back to see if she could possible crash at one of her cousin's households. Juliette and her family had gotten together for one of Jules's cousins, Serena and her fiance's wedding.

In happy news, Juliette's Aunt Wendy agreed to having Juliette live with them for a while until she had enough to buy a place of her own. It might take a year or more but Juliette was excited to live near her other family members and live in another country.

Now that she had officially moved in, Juliette Rose is excited to start a new chapter in London

Reply as your character to the following:

Godric Park.

Overhead, the sky was a crisp blue, for once clear of the ever-pervasive spongy clouds and rain. The sun was a lemony-yellow presence, high in the Eastern sky, and in front of it zipped three broomsticks in a straight line, or something very like one. One... two..... three... the boys passed, their shouts of excitement echoing as they chased the snitch, a tiny shimmer reflecting the sunlight.

Far below was another, much smaller broomstick.

It trugged along the ground, hugging close to it like a sluggish choo choo train and occasionally shuttering in protest. This was because said stick was currently being occupied by a very small girl who was tugging upward on the front of it with all her might, trying to coax it into doing what it had been expressly designed NOT to do.

"John, I said wait up!" The tiny girl squealed, giving the broomstick another tug.

Begrudgingly, it drifted upward a foot, and then sank, depositing the troublesome girl safely on the ground. Janey Hurst was not pleased. In a huff, she hopped off the toy safety broom, grabbing it firmly and thrusting it handle first into the turf.

Her brother was such a beast. He NEVER let her play! She folded her arms, seething blue eyes fixing on another figure nearby.  "You!" She barked, much more sharply than she meant to.

"...Do you want to play?"

Roleplay Response:

Everything was peaceful at Godric Park. Children ran around giggling, parents talked among themselves about the latest gossip, an elderly lady fed some pigeons on one of the benches and Juliette found herself sitting on a bench herself by a shaded tree. Flipping through the latest gossip magazine, the blonde smacked her gums as the taste of bubblegum filled her senses.

The teenager's sky blue eyes scanned the pages of the latest fashion trends and news. Juliette spotted something in her pile of magazines and instantly grabbed the paper. On the cover was Marilyn Monroe. The goddess herself. Juliette looked up to the woman and idolized her. 

Everything seemed to be going fine and Juliette read the latest thing on her idol until an annoying girl started yelling at her like she was some friend of hers.

"...Do you want to play?"

Juliette's blue eyes looked at the fake broom in the young girl's hand and she rolled her eyes. British children, always being so loud and demanding. It wasn't like she had anything against kids... in fact she loved them! Just that afternoon, Juliette wanted some peace.

She didn't get peace that often back in America. The constant arguing of her younger twin siblings, Lindsey and Hayden along with her older sister Aria, blaring the radio was always what was happening back in the Rose family household. Compared to her cousin's house, nothing was as crazy as Juliette's house. Maybe now that Serena has had her daughters things might be crazy but before everything seemed more down to earth. At least when Juliette, her parents and siblings visited.

"Sorry sweetie but I could ruin these nails" Juliette held up her brand new manicure to the little girl "Wouldn't want to mess them up"

She had just recently went to the spa and got a few different treatments such as a manicure and pedicure, a hair cut and a seaweed mask. Making sure her hair was stull wrapped up in a low bun, Juliette flashed her award winning smile.

Before the girl could become upset or angry, Juiliette held up her gum package.

"Want a piece?" the golden haired girl asked, continuing to smack her own gum. 

A little girl couldn't pass up candy right?

Thanks for making those changes, all the powerplaying issues have been resolved now!

Your RP sample still falls a little short, however, so would you mind adding a little more detail to give Janey more to respond to? Just three or four more sentences expanding on what you've already written would be great. This may also help you get to know your own character's thoughts/reactions better too.

If you're stuck on what to write, you could think about the following:
1. You mentioned Mary was thinking about dinner. Who'll be making it? What does she hope the food will be/what's her favourite? What time does she have to be home by?
2. Mary also suggests playing tag. Is that one of her favourite games? Who does she usually play tag with, and is she any good at it? As an only child, does she get to play tag often? Or maybe she doesn't, and that's why she's asking Janey to play now?

Once you've made the required change, please repost your entire revised application below, and we'll be more than happy to take another look. Thanks!

E L S E W H E R E   C H I L D

CHARACTER INFORMATION
Character Name: Fiodhagal Giuthaisan Duncan
'Fiodhagal, which you speak out like Fidhachel, is derived from the gaelic word Fiodhag, which essentially means 'hackberry' or 'mayday tree'. Giuthaisan, which you speak out like Gy-uthai-san and is derived from the gaelic word Giuthais, which means 'pine tree'.
Sex: Male

Age: Ten.. "And a half!"

Bloodline: Halfblood
Parents/Guardians (Are they currently played characters?):   Currently NPCS, but his parents are dragonologists and fellow druids. They participate in druid rituals, aswell as doing plenty of other stuff. They are said to be (especially the mother of the household) the prominent and 'leading' household of the few people in the druidic grove they are apart of. Aside from their religious doings, the parents of Fid and Aoife (his sister) and their other sibling are also dragonologists. They know a lot about dragons, and have the right to own various dragons for short periods of time in order to give them the care they need.

Residence: Carnoch, Scotland in an old but big wooden hut far in the countryside. They live almost half an hour away in average broomflight from the nearest village, and in this village they often do druid rituals and ceremonies.. This is because one of the altars is close by the village, and because most of the druidic grove live there.


Do you plan to have a connection to a particular existing place (for example: the daycare)? AB&C Daycare
Do you wish to be approved as a group with any other characters? If so who and for what IC reason? I don’t think so, no. Altrough my IC sister is Aoife Duncan, we dont need to get accepted at the exact same time.

Please list any other characters you already have at the site: None.

Biography: (100 words minimum.)
Fiodhagel 'Fiddle' G. Duncan is the oldest child of Aoifen & Saoirse (O’Finan) Duncan, William Duncans brother and sister in law. His sister is Aoife Duncan, and has an yet to be unnamed other sibling. His parents are dragonologists and druids, and because of their high influence in their druidic grove the children are thought to be "royals" just like the preacher's kids are handled in christianity: they look up to to them, and are said to be needing to follow the high expectations the grove put them up to..

However, Fiddle is no one to care about these expectations, altrough he can come of real shy, he often does want he wants, which mainly involves magical creature studies or in general, learning. He loves magical creatures, and has an special close connection to his bowtruckle, of which he is clearly

Roleplay Response:
The figure of the little red and curly haired boy slowly looked around in the beautiful park he was in. In his sight there was a girl somewhat younger than himself, with a really small child-safety broom in her hands. Fid's dark brown eyes looked around the girl from toe to top.

The little girl had bright blue eyes that reminden Fid of an wild choatic sea. She was much smaller than himself, but seemed way more adult in personality. Eventually, his thought were interupted.. "You!" She shouted out loud "...Do you want to play?" Slowly his thoughts began to rattle once again.. Ofcourse he would love to.. But.. He isn't that quite of a social flutterby bus-.. uhh, butterfly..  And she doesn't seem to be exactly heartwarming... But alright, he thought. And he just tried it.

"Euh, Eh... I guess so.." Said Fiodhagal nervously.. "I'm Fid, or Fiddle.. What do you wanna .. play?" His cheeks were blushing as red as his hair. His eyes were resting upon her image, but with somewhat a scared look. .

Biography: (300 words minimum.)
Claudie Jane Locksley came into the world on the sunniest day of winter in 1936. This sunshine seemed to bless her with an equally sunny disposition, making her large eyes and blonde locks glisten in pretty symphony next to her shining heart. Claudie grew up believing in magic. She knew about magic, watched her cousins and father practice small charms and spells. Her father worked as a Healer in St. Mungo’s. Her mother did her best to make up for what she knew she lacked in. Agatha Lane had been classified as a squib at a young age, and while her husband loved her with a full heart, she had never felt she deserved to be married to him. So, instead she learned the practical wizardry of cooking, baking, and sewing. Her brisk kindness kept those who knew her and loved her close. Possibly too close.

Meaning Agatha Lane did something some would consider a cruelty.

Instead of allowing her only child to go to Hogwarts, only a quick trip away from their cosy country cottage in Hogsmeade, Agatha insisted that Claudie should be homeschooled. “She’s enough relatives who can teach her a thing or two about how to do spells and which books to read. And I think it’s important she learns how to live without magic, Joe. After all, they don’t teach them all the things they need to know how to do up there, in the castle. She can help me with the shop.”

And Claudie, now on the verge of sixteen, had done this without any anger or resentment. She read every book she could. She practiced as many spells as could be taught. She learned how to cook and bake and sew, and her cups of tea and pots of coffee could compare to no one’s. No regrets or longings ever truly panged her. Few people were as well liked as Claudie Locksley in Hogsmeade. Her sweetness and loveliness permeated nearly everything she ever did. She made more than enough friends in the village, even some students from Hogwarts, and she did love her mother and father so very dearly.

Only sometimes – just sometimes – when she glimpsed students wandering into Hogsmeade with their multi-coloured scarves, Claudie felt she’d missed something she could not get back.


Roleplay: 
You come across one of these posts on the site. Please select one & reply as your character:

Option One -
Amelia Nixon was many things, but she was never a pushover reporter that people could just usher away with a busy shuffle past. She was dedicated and eager to cut to the very middle of the current political tensions because she was Amelia Nixon and her articles would most certainly become front page material.

“Sir, please! It’s for the Prophet, how do you feel-“

Another one brushed passed her, the shuffling busy masses making their way through Diagon Alley for the lunchtime rush. This had been the best possible time to get people, but none of them were giving her anything to go with.

Only momentarily discouraged, the short red headed lady took a seat on a nearby bench. Her quill resting in her left hand and her notepad ready in the opposite hand. Amelia pouted, tapping the quill against her leg as she scanned the waves of people for somebody - anybody - who looked like they had something to say.

She had been dreaming of her name in bold print, Amelia Nixon: The Source of Today’s Tomorrow. She had been dreaming of the larger office and the secretaries that would fetch her the morning coffee and fetch her anything she needed. The VIP interviews and the most exclusive press passes. But all Amelia had was a page seventeen piece on the rising number of frogs in London.

Hardened by a day of no success, the reporter stood up and started to trod off down the alley. A loose stone on the cobble path caught her heel, sending the distraught girl toppling down to the ground.

“Merlin’s fog watch, my heel is broken! Help!” she yelled as she tried desperately to recover her shoe frantically in the middle of the Diagon Alley moving crowds.

Option Two -
The snow had been falling steadily all morning and it didn't look like it was going to stop any time soon. Joshua Campbell scrunched his face up in a frown as he lifted his gaze to look to the sky. Snow. It really was quite a bother.

And it certainly didn't make it better that Diagon Alley seemed to be getting more and more crowded. Joshua sighed and pointed his wand at the large box that was currently placed on the doorstep of his shop. He had to get going. He had an order to deliver.

"Wingardium Leviosa!" The elderly man muttered and watched the box hover in the air for a moment. Honestly, did St. Mungo's really need that much tinsel? And with glitter of all things? He sighed again. If it hadn't been for the rather convincing stamp on the order, he would have been likely to believe it had been a prank by one of those orphaned rascals living up there. 

Oh well, there was no point in waiting. Joshua deftly stirred the box down the doorstep and out onto the street, carefully levitating it above the heads of the crowd.

"Coming through! Coming through!" His voice sounded over the chatter of the crowd. "Keep out! Move ahead! Go on!" This was going way too slow. People were in the way and walking like they had all day! He huffed. Luckily the road was down hill.

"Coming through! Coming th--- arrrgh!" Joshua let out a loud shout as his feet suddenly slipped in the snow and sent him, the box, and several long strands of tinsel tumbling into the person who had been walking in front of him.

"For Merlin's sake!" Joshua muttered angrily as he hurried to his feet again, red and gold tinsel now decorating his black coat. He looked apologetic at the person he had crashed into.

Roleplay Response:
There was something about London in the snow.

Claudie grinned, dipping her head back and allowing a fat snowflake to land on the tip of her nose, like a sloppy, cold kiss. They were here for the night. Her mother never came into London, much less Diagon Alley, unless it was required of her. Nothing would alter this. A preconceived notion that all wizards could spot a squib with their bare eyes went before Agatha Locksley in everything she did. But this notion had not stopped her father from wanting his girls to come up to London for a pre-Christmas dinner treat after his rotation at St. Mungo's finished.

Agatha pushed along the mass of people. A slightly hardened woman, it did not stop her general appearance from being lovely. Her blonde hair and petite features were delicate and feminine. Things Claudie had inherited. She'd gotten her eyes from her father.

"Claudie! Don't dawdle, come on!"

Her mother's bark did nothing to stop a shout from behind Claudie. Without warning, something bumped into the back of her. It sent her flying forward onto the snowy cobblestones. A tuft of red and gold glitter fell into the snow ahead of her, and Claudie couldn't help but think of how pretty it looked, even as she winced in pain. Water soaked through her mittens and stockinged knees immediately. Palms and knees stung. The man who had bumped into her apologized behind her while cursing several things that made Claudie's cheeks burn.

"I'm fine, truly. It was just an accident!"

Hi Fiodhagal!

Your application is looking good! However, if your RP sample, you make some assumptions about Janey's looks, like her dark brown hair. If it's not mentioned in someone's post and you don't have prior knowledge of what the character currently looks like, writing that in your post is a form of powerplaying. You'll need to edit your RP sample to fix this.

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

Type your response here. Isabelle jumped she was alarmed at how loud the girl was then she said "no I have to go home soon..." and almost ran away she can't handle strangers. She was scared that the girl was about to play with her she didn't like meeting people because they might be bossy or selfish so she was not intrested in playing with Janey. Then she saw how lonely Janey was and remembered how she felt when her older siblings left her out! She also saw that Janey had a broomstick this fascinated Isabelle because she had never seen someone fly on a broomstick before! She finally decided she wanted to play with Janey because she looked like she needed a friend! "Yeah I'll play with you" she said hoping Janey would want to be her friend.
