Er... First of all, I'm very sorry for bothering you :-[ i thought I could apply two characters at the same time seeing that it only happens once a year.

I think I will be choosing Maria (because she is closer to my heart).

Again, I am very sorry for bothering you  :)

Mare came from a Spanish and American descent. Her mother was american and her father was a Spaniard who migrated to the Philippines during the time of colonization.

Maria (Mare) was a very sheltered girl. Her mother, Rosalyn Thorbush was part of an old, pure blood family, who were very strict. Her father, Richard Legaspi, was a Muggle. When the Thorbushes learned about Rosalyn's relationship with the muggle, they shunned her. Rosalyn decided to turn her back on the wizarding world and went to live with her now husband, Richard in the Philippines.

They were a happy couple. They lived in a small house in a humble and quiet village. Rosalyn got pregnant with Mare and Richard couldn't be more excited. He took care of his wife, watching her and attending to her after work. Richard would cook the dinner and every night they talked about their child and their peaceful and happy future.

But one night, right after dinner, there was a tapping in the window. It tapped in a certain beat and Rosalyn recognized it immediately. She told her husband, who was washing the dishes, that she had something to check. When she got to the window, her fears were answered. It was their family's snowy owl. The old and graying creature had a note tied around its leg. We are coming to get you, it said. Why now? What happened? She kept asking to herself as she stomped up the stairs to get her wand.

Rosalyn, having availed her wand from a chest she hadn't touched for years, grabbed her coat and started running down the stairs to the front door. Richard, having heard the ruckus Rosalyn was making upstairs, blocked the front door.

They had an argument. It went back and forth. Richard asked the questions and Rosalyn, not answering any of them, kept telling him to step aside, she had somewhere to go.

Richard kept reminding her that was pregnant whenever Rosalyn told him she HAD to do something which required being outside.

Rosalyn's thoughts swirled. What if they killed Richard?  She felt like fainting.

She pushed Richard aside with all her might and ran out the door and into the garden. And on the sidewalk, right in front of their house was her older sister, Esma. They met eye to eye and her sister smirked. For a split second, there was a silence.

They both took out their wands and pointed them toward each other. They said their spells at the same time

Esma used the Cruciatus curse and Rosalyn used the disarming spell.

Rosalyn missed for she hadn’t touched a wand for about a year now. Her sister missed as well. But that's what Rosalyn thought.

Shouting with pain, Richard stood in the front door. He bended in places his joints weren't meant to bend. Rosalyn cried as if she was hit with the curse as well. After some pleading, Rosalyn's sister stopped with pity in her eyes as she looked at her young sister.

Rosalyn was to come with her, the evil woman said, or Richard dies. Rosalyn knew Esma didn't like muggles, but she didn't despise them either. But if she came here under the orders of their mother, then Esma was probably sent to come get her and kill her muggle husband. Rosalyn was grateful to Esma for she still looked at her with pitiful eyes and did not look like she planned to kill her beloved.

Rosalyn knew inside her that this was the same sister she came to sleep with when she had bad dreams. She was the same sister who would sneak pastries from the kitchen and bring it to young Rosalyn's room to eat together during a stormy night. She still cared for her younger sibling

The Thorbush family wanted Rosalyn back for there were troubles in the family. Koreena Thorbush, Rosalyn's mother was on her death bed, and wanted to see her daughter before she died. Rosalyn has always been her mother's favorite

Looking back at Richard with tearful eyes, she walked to him. He lay on the ground twitching, but all of him was in one piece, and his joints were back to their original place. Rosalyn kissed him goodbye and left with her sister. Richard was blinking in tears, trying to shout Rosalyn's name, but he couldn't. It was as if his mouth was stuck. All Rosalyn could here was the muffled sounds of his husband’s voice.

Because of the Thorbushes connections with the Ministry of Magic, Esma did not have to pay the price for inflicting pain upon Richard. Rosalyn felt furious for this was the same family she left years ago. The same family that wriggled out of performing illegal curses, and did not blink twice when attacking an unarmed muggle.

Rosalyn gave birth in the Thorbush mansion right after the time warp, which Richard was lost to He will never know her or her daughter, but it was for the best, she thought.

Mare lived in the mansion ,located in florida, with the Thorbush family; her grandmother, Koreena, aunt Esma, and the husband of aunt Esma.But only person she spoke to was her mother whenever she wasn't busy with their family business. She was the only child in the mansion. Although the Thorbushes were furious with Rosalyn having a daughter without their consent, they still treated her well and gave her everything she wanted. She was the next heir to the Thorbush family after all, for Esma could not have any children.

The Thorbushes have now accepted the 'impurity' of Mare's blood, but they did not like to talk about it much.

After Koreena died, and Mare was four, they moved yet again to another estate the Thorbushes owned, for her aunt said, "it stunk of death". Mare was not happy with the moving. They moved to a large flat. It was not as fancy as the Thorbush mansion but Esma insisted that they stay there.

The Thorbushes gave Mare a library and books became her only companions. She craved for human companionship, aside from her mother's. Ever since she was seven she has been writing in her big black journal. She would write weekend plans she would do with friends she planned to gain. She picked them up from books and wrote conversations her aunt Esma had with her friends when they had their weekly meetings.

When she was eleven, she received a letter with the Hogwarts crest stamped on the front. Her aunt Esma looked pleased (for it was her alma mater), but her mother was mortified. Roslyn did not want her only treasure to get hurt. She did not want Mare to go a boarding school where she won't be able to regularly check what Mare was doing. She would be performing magic without her guidance. There going to be bullies, cliques, and boys! Rosalyn went to Hogwarts but only after three years of homeschooling. Esma was in Slytherin while Rosalyn was in Ravenclaw.

It was already hard living in Liverpool for this was near the water. Liverpool was used as ports to transport all sorts of weapons of the muggles. The Thorbush family did not know why. Whenever Mare looked out the window there all sorts of big, metal contraptions she had never seen or heard of before.

With the help of her aunt Esma, Mare was finally able to persuade her mother to join Hogwarts. She has been homeschooled all her life and Hogwarts was going to be a big step for her.

→ ADDITIONAL INFORMATION.
Note: This section is optional, and is up to you to complete. Mare's last name is Legaspi in honor of her loving father she never met, nor existed.

House Request: Slutherin or Hufflepuff or Ravenclaw(I can't decide)

Personality: Mare is very socially awkward and quiet with strangers. She may look angry or irritated when you try to talk to her but she's actually having an argument with herself inside her head. On the outside she looks very dark and distant but she's really nervous and rethinks everything she does. She wants to make lots of friends and she has written every idea on how to make friends in her journal (she thinks doing good in classes will make her earn new friends). She likes reading, drawing and quiet places. She dislikes girly things. She hates pink and likes to wear black, gray or white most of the time. But she's okay with pink stuffed animals like llamas. She is secretly interested in Quidditch. But she's afraid of heights. She hates standing out. She is very determined and ready for friend making when school starts.

Appearance: Mare has long black hair with curly ends which she plays with a lot when she's nervous. She has big hazel brown eyes and dimples. She has porcelain white skin from staying indoors all day, which she hates because it sort of makes her stand out. She is a little short and skinny because she doesn't have much of an appetite.

Option 2:

Mare had her friend journal out as she walked around the grounds. It contained all of her ideas and plans on how to make friends and what to do with them when she gained them.

She was reviewing the names of the people who greeted her this morning at breakfast. 'Hmm, she would be perfect for playing chess with' , Mare thought to herself.

She took out her pencil and wrote 'playing chess' next to a girl's name. She tapped the end of her pencil on the corner of her mouth and frowned in thought. Mare decided to practice her conversation starters. She flipped through the journal, looking at the sticky notes sticking out of the pages, labeled with all sorts of things Mare scribbled in her clean penmanship.

Ah. The conversation starter section. She always updated this section whenever someone tried to converse with her. She put whatever they asked in her journal. Mare put her chin up and spoke loud and confident as she read the topics in her journal.

"That was some Turkey sandwich!" She said in a low voice. She straightened her body and puffed out her chest. 'Confident. Confident' , she kept chanting to herself inside her head. There were food topics, board game topics, and personal hygiene topics. She looked at her journal swelling with pride. Then she flipped the pages to the front which was labeled in red ink as the 'Basic questions section'.   

"How are you? How are you? How are you ?" She said again and again in different tones. Bowing and curtsying to an invisible someone. She marched forward, as if she was a soldier. She was now strolling through the flower beds. She loved flowers.

"How are you?" She curtsied to the flowerbeds. And the flowers swayed in the wind as if a response to Mare's greeting. Mare smiled her biggest smile.  The weather was perfect for friend making.

Then she heard russling.

She looked around and to her right she saw a boy who was looking through the Chrysanthemums. He sneezed and Mare jumped. A boy! She quickly opened her journal and thumbed through the pages. She had to find something. Something! What did boys like to talk about? Quidditch? Food? She desperately looked at the boy.

He wiped his nose on his robes and looked at her.  "Can I help you with something? It is not polite to stare." The boy said derisively. Mare closed her journal. She straightened her back, puffed her chest and put her nose in the air. And without thinking twice she said-

"That was some turkey sandwich!" She felt her face heating up. She blushed. She gave herself a mental slap on the face.


→ ABOUT YOU.

Please list any characters you have on the site (current and previous): N/A

How did you find us?: Someone on Whisper suggested online Hogwarts, and I got interested when he/she said that it had a more accurate sorting test than Pottermore (because my house results always turned out random). Anyway, I searched for it and I was not expecting an RPG site. I stumbled upon another site the first time, then desperately looking for the secret phrase, I searched it on google. Then I got on a site (that was definitely not the first one, this one looked nicer, I thought). I was surprised to find another site and this one appealed to me. It looked so interesting and nice. And that is how I found your site.

Hello there, sorry to be bothering you. I'm using mobile right now and I don't know if that effects my application. I can't sort. I've copied the tags but I don't know what to do afterwards. Am I even supposed to copy the tags? I have no idea. Can someone help me please? I'm so sorry if I bothered anyone in anyway or maybe annoyed someone. ;D :-[
