Application for Hogwarts School




→ CHARACTER INFORMATION.

Name:
Zailey Ivanova Pavlova

Birthday:
01 May 1933

Hometown:
Moscow, USSR

Bloodline:
Pureblood

Magical Strength (pick one):
Divination

Magical Weakness (pick one):
Transfiguration

Year (pick two):
Seventh, Sixth

Biography:
Born of a heated exchange between two strangers, Zailey has lived a life atypical of her fellow witches. Abandoned at an orphanage at birth, raised by a crumbling couple, and eventually adopted by a charming couple; there is nothing about Zailey or her upbringing that would have ever indicated she was destined for great things in her short lifetime.

At the age of three, Zailey was whisked away to London by Boris and Anya Petrova. Ex-pats of Russia, they had merely returned in the search for a child of their own; a daunting yet fulfilling task. Growing up in a seemingly normal community, Zailey was a stranger to the magical world until the sudden departure of her beloved adopted parents. Unbeknownst to her, she had a magic-laden pedigree and was the only Petrova survivor of the Time Warp.

With her entire world gone and only the briefest of fuzzy memories to serve as snippets of her family; Zailey wandered for a brief period of time (scavenging to get by) until she was taken in by a lovely (magical) family that had endured their own slew of losses (mainly fostered children). It was in their home that she was welcomed, nurtured, and eventually forgot the life she had once had with Boris and Anya. It was there that she received her letter and a whole new world opened up to her.

In 1944, Zailey began attending school at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft & Wizardry. Sorted into Slytherin, she became active in Spellbound and Quidditch. In 1946, her biological mother, Izolda, came into her life as a Professor. By 1947, Zailey had gained both a biological father, Ivan, and a twin, Zander. Today, she continues her education as a Seventh Year and hopes to be named a Prefect this year. Her passion still lies in Quidditch.

→ SAMPLE ROLEPLAY.
The dungeons had become home, Zailey found herself already morose about the thought of leaving them behind.

Carefully she sauntered down a damp corridor, fingers tracing the carefully etched surfaces of stones that had not seen the light of day for many centuries. Every nook and cranny of the dungeons explored to the best of her effort. The thought of the real world and what awaited her, or potentially didn't, sent a shiver of excitement and fear up the lone girl's spine.

Girl--she was on the verge of becoming a woman.

As she slowly slipped into a trance, the gentle trickling of water lulling her into a blissful awareness, it was then she heard the faintest of voices calling out to the ghosts of her past.

"Hello! Is Emma Birch here?"

Emma Birch, a name that hadn't crossed Zailey's mind for several years. Emma Birch, the girl who left too soon; her death had proceeded the oppression by the Hexenreich. The older Slytherin could still recall the way her body crumpled to the floor as an Unforgivable stole away the last of her life force. An entire generation would graduate from Hogwarts this year, the last generation to have had contact with the infamous Emma Birch.

"No," Zailey responded suddenly, "you won't find an Emma Birch down here. Only a one-way ticket to Detention unless you make yourself conveniently disappear."

She thought she heard quickly fading footsteps, but down here you could never tell. Using the sleeve of her robe, she rubbed it gently against the small golden badge she wore proudly; at the very least she had done something noteworthy in her years here.

it's a beautiful lie,

Such a beautiful lie to believe in.

Hi, Zailey!

Your application looks great, there's just one thing I'd like to clarify before we can get you accepted.

In your RP sample, you state:
Quote
Using the sleeve of her robe, she rubbed it gently against the small golden badge she wore proudly; at the very least she had done something noteworthy in her years here.

Does this refer to a Prefect or Head Girl badge? If so, you'll need to remove this from your post; otherwise, please could you elaborate on what the badge is? You can always end your post with the sentence just before the quoted passage above, and that would be fine.

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!
