My name is Fern Outterridge. I'm 11 years old, and as expected, I just recieved my letter to Hogwarts. I say "as expected" because both of my parents went to Hogwarts, and I've been surrounded by magic my whole life. See, I'm a half-blood witch. My dad, Gage, is a pure-blood and was in Gryffindor when he was at Hogwarts. And my mum, Celisia, is muggle-born and was in Ravenclaw house. Now my dad works for the Ministry of Magic in the Accidental Magic Reversal Squad and my mum is a herbologist and potioneer.

I've spent my whole life in the town I was born in, Bryn. It's in the western Part of England, in Manchester, and its right next to the ocean. I love spending time near the water, but I think I love exploring the forests nearby even more. Something about the smell of the air, so crisp yet sweet, in those forests I just adore. Since my mum is a herbologist, I've taken a liking myself. I'm quite good at identifying both magical and muggle plants. When I was a little girl my mom and I used to walk through the meadows and the woods and she would teach me all types of plant names and information. I also grew to adore all of the creatures in those forests and have a special place in my heart for them. Sometimes, while exploring the woods with my mom, instead of talking, we would just sit next to each other and read.  My mother doesn't have any parents, so thats why I think she likes to spend time with me so much. She grew up in an orphanage and that's about all I know. She claims she doesn't remember much of her childhood before Hogwarts, and that's all blacked out and a blur. She does know that she has muggle parents, though. And well.. that's about all I know.

My dad loves quidditch, so naturally I do as well, and we spend lots of time playing around in the meadows. I love the chaser position and I'm good with a quaffle, although my dad was a beater when he was at Hogwarts. I think I'll even try out for the quidditch team at some point.. If I get the nerve to. That would make my dad proud. His parents, my grandparent's are here in Bryn. My dad's side of the family has lived here for decades, since Bryn has a small wizarding community. They're hilarious. When I was younger I would spend alot of time at their house and my gramps would charm toys, move things into different places when I went to grab them, and the list goes on.

In fact, I was at my grandparent's house the morning my owl came! Everyone was so proud of me, they surpised me with an owl of my own. I expect it's really because they want me to keep in touch though. She's a pygmy, I named her Valentine. I can't wait to take her with me to Hogwarts. Only a few days left.. I can't wait to see which house I'm in, explore the Library, find my way through the castle.. Oh, I can't wait.

House Request:
Ravenclaw, please.

Fern is rather shy at first, and gets anxious very easily. She prefers to be in smaller social settings versus somewhere with large groups. She is naturally introverted and values her alone time and her space, yet is a loyal friend who needs companionship and actually has a good sense of humor once you know her. She takes her schooling very seriously and loves to learn. She is especially interested in Charms, Divination, Herbology and Care of Magical Creatures. She's very artistic and her hobbies inclue reading and making jewelry and altering her own clothing. She loves cool overcast days. For being a shy girl, she can be pretty sassy.
Weaknesses include being hard on herself and getting her feelings hurt easily.

Fern is tall for her age and quite petite, at 5'3" and 85 lbs. She has long, darky wavy hair that she's constantly pushing out of her face and rather large, dark paired long, thick eyelashes. She has a small nose. She's always wearing some fun jewlery or hairclips she made to spice up the school uniform.

Please reply to one of the Sample Roleplays below.
I chose Option 2:

Fern had been laying in bed for a good 20 minutes by the time she decided to finally get up. She could hear the soft snores from all of the girls around her, and judging  by the pale sky, it was still just barely dawn. She was still so excited to be at Hogwarts though, she just couldn't go back to sleep. Especially since she made sure all of her homework had been done this first week, so she could spend her very first weekend at Hogwarts exploring the castle and it's surroundings.

After getting dressed, she decided to pull on her favorite sweater, since it looked cool outside, then put her wand in her pocket and skipped out the girl's dormitory, through the common room and headed toward the Great Hall for breakfast. As she arrived it was just as she had expected, pretty empty. She opted for a light breakfast of a banana and toast with coffee, and as she was finishing up she was deciding where she should check out first.

Her instinct said outside, since that was where she had spent so much of her time growing up, before Hogwarts. She made her way through the entrance hall and out the doors and was immediately distracted by the gardens. She was good with herbology and plant identification, but some of these were just too much.

"You blasted rat! Where are you?" she heard a male voice yell, followed by a sneeze.
At the exact moment she saw the leaves at her feet shaking. She bent down and there was the rat- all curled up. It's beady eyes made eye contact with hers and it ran up the sleeve of her robes. She heard another sneeze and saw across the garden about 20 feet away, a boy who looked a few years older than her wiping his nose on his sleeve.
"Can I help you with something? It is not polite to stare" the boy yelled to her.

Fern could feel her face turn red and she walked towards him. "Oh.. um, I'm sorry, is this your rat?" she held out her arm, the rat still clinging on to her robes. "I was just over there in the gardens and her just ran right up my arm and..." her voice trailed off, intimidated by the boy, waiting to hear his response.

Suggestions & Questions / Timewarp?
« on: 25/08/2015 at 19:08 »
Hi everyone, I'm new here and before submitting my RP application and writing my character's background, I have a few questions about the timewarp.

I'm confused- so the character I want to create will be starting as a first year at 11 years old, since the timewarp happened 8 years ago, will my character have been born in 1972 but is now living in 1945? Did ONLY wizards move back in time? Does this mean my muggleborn mother's parents are still in the 1970's and my character will not know her grandparents? If thats the case, when time moves by and my character has aged those years until it's 1975 again, will her grandparents still be the same age and she will finally meet them? I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around it all. Thank you in advance for the answers! I'm excited to apply and start RPing!
