Biography: (300 words minimum.)
The youngest of three siblings, Marilyn was born into a middle class halfblood family. Her father runned the family shop in Hogsmeade and her mother was responsible for making her and her brothers as impeccable as it was possible. She had always been the dream girl: perfect face, perfect manners and perfect life.

And, unlike her ambitionless parents, Marilyn always knew she was meant for much more. For great manors and ballrooms. For high couture and society. There would be a diamond ring and romantic dinners in some fancy restaurant. There would be an enormous wedding, white and full of flowers, where everyone in the city would be able to see her walking down the aisle. There would be a lush house, with gardens and elegant furniture ,that someone else would clean, and a modern kitchen, where someone else would cook. There would be a baby, with rosy cheeks and her hair, and a husband who would kiss her when he got home. And a limousine - the girl was aware that particular part was largely more ficticious than the rest, but she had start dreamed about the thing ever since seeing it while watching a movie with a muggleborn friend.

Marilyn dreamed high, and there was no apparent motive for her to not gain what she sought.

Yet, there she was in an apartment whose ceiling was dripping and where the hot water was always on the eminent risk of running off. It has seemed like a good idea, at first, to leave behind her family home at Hogsmeade - high class bachelors can’t be found in cozy little villages, after all. You have to hunt for them. The subpar job at The Ministry was supposed to be something temporary, just a small step between her and the glory. Who would know that the bills had to paid monthly, and that the people at the Ministry do really have to do some work?

Adult life was being a far-fetch from her plans during that Hogwarts years.

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.

Roleplay Response:
It was her day off.

Cuban heels, pale long legs and a floral, knee-length and high waisted dress: Marilyn stood glued to one of the stone buildings, farthest away from the crowds as she could. The small mirror from her powder reflected  perfect lips covered by bright red lipstick - the case was pristine white, with little (fake) rubies forming an M at the front - and the blonde woman made a little pout before closing it.

Donnie  was late by fifteen minutes.

She sighed, a slender finger curling a blonde lock of hair. Should have know better than give in to his flirts so quick - everyone knew that guys like guys him preferred the long game. Well, there was also the not so small fact the young doctor wasn't exactly what the blonde had been aiming for - but she had to start from somewhere, after all.

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

A reporter? Had something happened? Marilyn got on the tip of her shoes, trying to get a better sight, getting closer when this failed. Diagon Alley looked crowded and normal as any other day - but hey, if the journalist was looking for a scoop, Marilyn could totally help her with that. She was sure that if someone investigated that strange new neighbor of hers, then there would be a history worthy of, at least, a page five.

“Merlin’s fog watch, my heel is broken! Help!”

And had we mentioned she was also a complete good samaritan?

"Oh darling-" She cooed,  trying to locate the lost heel "- I don't think we can get that back. Here, let me help you."

Biography:
She was born on a dying night, but she was as bright¸ as the sun. Blond like the sun, she was a joyful infant and meant everything to her parents. Coming from a pureblood family, one of the richest of Russia, she never have feel the lack of everything in any material. But her parents were ariostocrats so they obviously have a certain decorum to maintain, a lot of manners to observe and by that, they were kind of distant to their daughter. They never shoved her lot of love or affection, just the borderline limit for making their child stop crying as a baby at night, when she wasn't doing her nights. But as she grown up, they never hugged her, never gratulated her for whatever she did. From her parents, she learned to hide her emotions and have a stern, blanked face. No one could ever read on her face her feelings, her emotions, nwhat she was thinking or what she wanted to do. Eva was noble and so, a lady. She had classes for her posture, and quickly learned how to play the little snobbish girl who was above of everything and everyone.

On her eleventh birthday, she received a letter from Hogwarts School. She raised an eyebrow and make a confused face for less than one second. Why her parents would sending her at a British school while she was living in Russia ? She was sad with that idea, but knew her parents had a lot to do here and can't really constantly keep an eye out for their daughter. When she asked her parents, they said that they want her to go studying at the best school in Britain, and that they didn't want to send her to Dumstrang. They were conservative pureblood but they did not want their daughter to learn any dark spells, as they were common at the Bulgarian school. And as for that, Eva could learn english better if she was immersed in an english country.

Months later, here she was, waiting along with a bunch of others students of her age, understanding just half what they were talking about. She have a base in english, just enough to her to understand and talk simply with others children and teachers. Finally, the teacher came back and then she found herself entering in the Great Hall of Hogwarts. She almost gasped in admiration. On a line, they finally enter where she will be Sorted, as she know.

- Ivanov, Eva.

The pureblood marched through the children and does in front of everyone to be Sorted. In five seconds, she knew where she now belonged as the Hat screamed the name of her House. There was her new life. She smirked.

She offered him a sad smile and turned of her feet as the ring sang the time for lunch. She was skipping lunch for this time. She wasn't hungry and was a little nauseous. She was out of the castle before anyone could try to take her to lunch and disappear into the flowers near the greenhouses. She had a view of the castle, fresh air and the calm brisk of wind to seetle her - or her stomach - to calm again.

Then, she neard someone coming and said some unladylike words and shutted her mouth. The boy looked through the flower for something, clearly and didn,t seems to find it.

She made a disgusted face and then rose up on her feet.

"I stared at you in astonishment, because a boy of your age havn't been taught how to properly blow your nose. Did your parents teach you nothing ?" her voice was cold, unfriendly but not that harsh. "Maybe your rat have been disgusted too and eacaped ..." she said, lazily with a smirk on her angel face. .

Biography: (300 words minimum.)
December Waters was six when the time swap tore her world apart. She was soon forced to live in an orphanage and began was hated because of her blood status. It sat on her chest and followed her everywhere in the form of a badge. It was like she was wearing a shirt that said "Bully me."

Life before the time swap was fuzzy. December only remembered having two loving parents, and then they disappeared. She remembered that she lived with muggles, but not what it was like. She didn't even know what happened to her parents. They began to slip farther and farther from her memory. By the time she was 8, she couldn't remember their faces. Her house, her friends, and everything else disappeared from her memory, die to the time swap and amnesia.

The poor muggle born was sent to live at Saint Mungo's. She was often lonely, due to her stubborn mind and many opinions. People thought her to be loud and obnoxious. They just left her alone. December dedicated most of her time to writing in her diary everything interesting that happened around her. One day, a nine year old December approached a healer, asking if she could volunteer at St. Mungo's to pass time. From then on, she would make sandwiches and such for the healers. She would also keep lonely patients company.

Even though she wasn't close with the other children, she was happiest around them. They were all muggle borns, so there was no hate or discrimination. Going to Hogwarts was hard. She got bullied because of the badge she was forced to wear. It was a hard time for muggleborns.

December was thrilled when she received her Hogwarts letter. She turned 11 on October 31, Halloween. After getting her letter, she bought her school supplies, and raced to Camp Loki, where she immediately faced prejudices. After the summer, she went to Hogwarts, eager to be sorted. As soon as the hat touched her red hair, it called Slytherin.

December barely got through her first year. Her second year wasn't much better. During her third year, things improved. She finally had a class she liked. Divination was the only thing she was good at. She did very well on her OWL for Divination. It became her focus, and she dedicated much time to Divination for NEWTs. December passed Divination with outstanding grades, and went out into the world, hoping to do something with her talent.

The world was a huge disappointment. She was hardly making money as a fortune teller, and December had her heart broken by q man after dating him for three months. She made some friends, who made fun of her behind her back. A broke and dejected December was walking through Diagon Alley when she saw a notice that the Daily Prophet was hiring. She remembered writing in her diary, so December decided to apply. She got the job.

December still hopes to open her own business. She has no idea what it will be, but she hopes to anyways.


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.

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.

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 -


Roleplay Response:
The smell of ice cream overtook December as she stepped into the crowded streets of Diagon Alley. People rushed past her, brushing her shoulders as the passed. It was the heart of the wizarding community in Britain, a magical place that seemed to always be crowded. People filled the colorful streets before her. December didn't mind the crowds. Sure she wasn't very social, but she wasn't shy either.

"Lets go get your wand dear," December heard a man say to his daughter. Diagon Alley was a special place, especially to new students. They would stare at the broomsticks with eyes filled with wonder. Their hearts were innocent and pure as gold. December was lacking a golden heart, and gold coins.

Being a journalist did not mean you get paid a fortune. Being a female journalist meant you were paid dirt. December didn't really mind. She was just happy to have a job and an apartment. Sure, the walls were cracked, and her bed was uncomfortable, but December was pleased.

Her financial situation was made obvious by her cheap outfit. An itchy blouse was tucked into a knee length skirt. It didn't look like am expensive skirt either. Her feet wore tiny heels, that made her feet ache. December would rather wear sneakers that these shoes.

"-my heel - broken! Help!" December could only hear part of the woman's cry. Her eyes shot over to a woman, who seemed familiar. They were both journalists, so December had seen the woman around.

Her hair, in its signature braid, soard behind her as she jogged to the woman. "Are you all alright?" She stuck a hand out to help the woman up. "I've got my wand. Would you like me to fix your shoe?"

Let me start by saying I'm impressed with the level of detail you all have.  I'm glad to make the changes (April 1st was, to be honest, a joke about April Fools and a placeholder).  Now I'm even more excited to join!  The last official boat to evacuate children was the 23rd of June, and she would have still been pregnant when the husband left for 'one more trip'.


Application for Hogwarts School




→ CHARACTER INFORMATION.
Name: Aspen Deanna Henrietta Donovan

Birthday: June 27, 1940

Hometown: Torquay, Devonshire

Bloodline: Muggleborn
Magical Strength (pick one): Charms

Magical Weakness (pick one): Divination

Year (pick two): First, Second

Biography:
Once upon a time a beautiful young schoolteacher from Guernsey Island fell in love with a brave young sea captain.  After a whirlwind romance (involving a good deal of dancing and more drink than is healthy) the two were wed.  It wasn't long afterwards that they were expecting a child.
It was then that cruel fate intervened and the Germans invaded Guernsey- and the children were evacuated to England.  Naturally, the brave young sea captain volunteered his ocean-worthy vessel to make the trip and the beautiful young schoolteacher took charge of the process from island-side, until she became so heavy with-child that she could no longer do the job.  It was then that she, too was brought from the tiny island to Torquay in England.
Safely ashore, the beautiful young schoolteacher begged her husband not to make any more trips- he had done his duty.  But the brave young sea captain felt honorbound to make one last trip.  He never returned.

Or so the story goes.  Aspen Donovan grew up the only (natural) child of Risa Donovan, headmistress of the Devonshire Home for Displaced Youth- an orphanage set up to house war-orphaned children (but now houses orphans in general).  She was raised much as the orphans, but set apart from them as well- an eternal chip on her shoulder that she was somehow 'better' because she had a parent to love her.

Her Hogwarts letter surprised everyone involved- and invoked anger in her mother!  It was then revealed that her Grandmother Niles had in fact been a squib and had moved to the tiny island of Guernsey in exile.  Risa was raised with a vehement hatred of magical folk and all-things magical, engrained in her by her squib mother.  She saw Asp's acceptance letter as a betrayal; her daughter was abandoning her the same way her husband had.

Magic, as it turns out, had worn its way full-circle- and Asp may yet bring new glory to the old house of Niles!

→ ADDITIONAL INFORMATION.
House Request: Slytherin, Ravenclaw

Personality: Asp is not rich, not spoiled- but has many of the trappings of those traits.  She carries a chip on her shoulder of innate superiority: her father wasn't just a sailor, he was a 'handsome young sea captain'; her mother wasn't just a headmistress, she was noble and pure and selfless; she wasn't just a girl, she was a princess in her own mind.  She is in complete denial that her mother seems to have turned on her.

Asp finds the most comfort among the orphans- she can lord over them as their superior.  She enjoys a good book: especially nonfiction books about gardening or history; and fantasies with beautiful but tragic damsels and the strong heroes that save them.  She fully expects the male population to treat her like a princess.

Appearance: Asp is tall for her age- brunette with pale skin, quite thin, and she carries herself with an almost regal countenance.  She smiles quite a bit- even when angered- so it becomes difficult to tell when she is genuinely kidding around or she has become as deadly serious as a snakebite.

→ SAMPLE ROLEPLAY.
It had rained that morning, so she guessed the garden flowers might have recovered some.  It hadn't been a good season, it seemed- the daffodils had been caught in a late frost and were sickly- at best.  The poppies were about to bloom, she suspected.  So it was with glee that she skipped down the long corridor and out the gate to the Garden.

She was humming a daft little tune, too loud in her head to be held in reserve- she was practically belting it out when she arrived.  But she stopped cold upon first glance at the flower beds- some dastard thing had gone and trampled the daisies!  And there- just inside that, a whole bed of poppies, dashed into chaos!

She stomped her foot as her eyes darted about, looking for the culprit- and was quick to find him smearing schmutz across his cheek and upper lip.  It was an upper-year, and one who apparently had no respect for beauty!

"Can I help you with something?  It is not polite to stare."

Despite being older than she, and thus holding more authority, she held her ground, "'Not polite to stare' says the boy who's been, what?  Letting Limax slugs crawl out your nostrils?"  She pointed behind her to the crushed poppies behind her, "You can start by fixing these, or I swear the gossip rag will be calling you 'Slug Boy' from now on!"

Hi, Aspen!

Your application looks great so far, there's just one thing I want to draw your attention to before we can get you accepted.

You reference the German invasion/occupation of the Channel Islands in Aspen's biography, and it seems that Aspen hasn't yet been born when the invasion/evacuation occurs. However, her birthday is April 1 1940, and the Germans didn't invade the Channel Islands until the end of June 1940. Evacuations also didn't really take place until only just before the German occupation.

If you could edit your application to make it more historically accurate (e.g. shifting Aspen's birthday to a later date or having her be born before the invasion occurs), that would be great.

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