Hi Alexx, welcome to the site!

Your application has now been accepted.

However, you state in your biography that Alexx is a Slytherin. If you don't plan to play her at the castle in future terms, it's fine for you to continue to claim that she is a Slytherin. However, if you're planning to play her at the castle, there is no guarantee that Alexx will end up in Slytherin. We try our best to accommodate house requests where we can, but this isn't always possible, so if you do plan to play her at the castle in future terms, it's advisable not to mention her house in any posts you make for now until she has been Sorted at the start of the term in which you choose to enrol her at the castle.

I hope that makes sense, please feel free to contact me if you have any concerns.

Hi Marie,

Thanks for making those changes.

It looks like you've dropped down from your previous total of 32 levels to 31 levels again. Was this a typo, or do you want to stick with 31 levels? I can add the missing level back to your Divination (or to any other category) if you prefer.

If you can comment below confirming your final level distribution (no need to repost the whole application), we can get you accepted. We can't retrospectively add levels that were not claimed in the initial application, so it's important that we get this right before accepting you. Thank you for your patience so far.

Biography: (300 words minimum.)
Pierce Roman Huxley-Jewell is the third eldest of the Huxley-Jewell children. Like most of his siblings he is fond of his parents but not particularly close with either of them. His father the ever honorable ministry administrator, Abelard Huxley, worked long hours and was raised in the traditional fashion where the children and household fell upon the woman. On the other hand his mother and famous actress, Sutton Jewell, would vehemently disagree. As she built her success she basked in the limelight turning to philanthropic pursuits after leaving the stage. In turn the two left their beloved children at the behest of nannies and tutors.

Pierce excelled at flying from a young age and his parents wanting to nurture his skill, while not necessarily wanting to be involved, got him flying lessons from quidditch professionals.

Throughout his Hogwarts years he excelled in his exams (except divination which he could often be complaining about).He was of course sorted into Slytherin as he showed his cunning means from the moment he was born.
He took pride in matching or surpassing his siblings. He and Lorelei tolerated each other as he though she was an annoying twit most of the time and she him an arrogant git. The younger ones escaped his notice most of the time as he thought himself above them. Though, if he got any whiff of someone bullying or talking about his siblings there would be hell to pay. Unless that sibling was Remy. Remington was a whole other matter.

From the time he could understand Remy was his elder brother, Peirce followed his lead. Thinking and acting like him and though he would nenver admit it he admired Remy. Until She happened.

After Hogwarts Pierce signed with the Chudley Cannons and after a few good years was loving it. During this time he began seeing a young reporter for the Daily Prophet who covered the cannons weekly. Unlike his previous relationships that he had been in, this was as close to that “love” he had heard others talk so much about. So like anyother young man struck by cupid’s bow he decided to take her home for familial approval. His mother was overjoyed and his father gave nod before returning to work. Pierce was happy, he didn’t even notice the glances between his brother and his girlfriend. That is until he caught them intertwined in Remy’s room that night.

The girl cried and begged for forgiveness while his brother said nothing. That night was the night Peirce moved out of the family estate into a penthouse in Wizarding London. As far as he was concerned his brother was gone and love was for the weak.

When he got word his uncle had died and his fortune and the title that came with it was up for grabs Pierce swore Remy would never see any of it. Only one question remained. Who what his newcomer claiming to be his cousin.


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. "I am so sorry! This blasted snow!" He looked apologetic at the person he had crashed into.

Roleplay Response:
Option 1:

Pierce made his way through the stree as he rubbed his temples. ‘These sunglasses are pathetic’ he thought to himself. As his pain from the previous night’s events raged on, the loud female voice talking about the prophet didn’t help.

On instinct Pierce reached out to catch the woman before she hit the ground. “Maybe if you didn’t buy a cheap pair of heels that wouldn’t happen,” He said smugly. Rolling his eyes he pulled out a cigarette and offered one to the woman. Not caring if she got one or not he lit his own.

“The Prophet still out luring men with you lot?” He said raising an eyebrow. “What are you writing about, eh? Top fashions of today? 50 Ways to keep a wizard? If so you are failing at both it seems,” Pierce smirked moving to walk away. ‘Useless reporters…’ He hissed to himself. He turned to look at her again. “A little advice sweetheart, find a real career,” He sneered hoping she would have some fire in her to bite back and give him some entertainment today.

Character Name: Alexxandria Ramona Orane Séverin

Occupation: Student (Slytherin)

Age: 13

Bloodline: Pureblood

Parents/Guardians (Are they currently played characters?): Franck and Jeannine Séverin,, NPCS

Residence: London, UK

Biography: (100 words minimum.)
For a girl of Alexx's demeanor, she certainly looks the way that she acts. Small and rage-driven, you would not be surprised that Alexx is capable of looking the part. While her charm certainly plays a major role, making Alexx naturally beautiful, there is something else that leaves those around her wondering how it was that she was so perfectly constructed.

Alexx stands at 4'11", rather short for a girl at the age of 13. She has long brown hair that reaches to the middle of her back, and is usually kept straight yet voluminous, or can otherwise be seen in a ponytail. Her nose is small and upturned, pointing straight for the sky in a cute manner. This can cause her to appear even more stuck up in the moments in which her head is held higher than normal.

Gold hoop earrings that Alexx had acquired a taste for at the age of 12 dangle from her ears, bouncing in perfect time with her hair as she strides the halls. When not in uniform, Alexx can often be found in skirts and blouses. Gold jewelry is her go-to, as she has been told that it makes her eyes pop.

Her eyes are a piercing blue; a shade that could make le mere envious. Her skintone is a striking pale shade, blinding those who stare for too long. She could almost be mistaken for a Vampire if she were just a shade or two lighter, but alas, Alexx remains a normal human.

She is thin and boney, but still manages to look athletic, much due to her time playing Quidditch. Her cheeks have begun to hollow in as she ages, and her jawline is becoming more defined. Should you look closely, you will see that her eyes are very sunken in. In a way, Alexx looks like a walking skeleton.

As scary as she is, she is also capable of having a soft complexion. Her smile is composed of perfect teeth and glossy lips, accompanied by a set of dimples that will poke out if she is happy enough. Her thin eyebrows will raise, and crinkles form at the ends of her eyes.

Roleplay:
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:
Alexx found found coming to Godric Park to be a sort of relaxing activity for her, especially considering how strict it is back at the Severin Manor. She was within walking distance, a good enough reason to get out to explore instead of staying cooped up in her bedroom all day.

She passed trees as she went, admiring the blue birds that flew above her head. It seemed to be a normal day by all means to her, so she sat calmly on a bench and watched the scenario unfold before her.

There seemed to be a girl, a distressed girl for that matter. Alexx read her face, the child obviously upset. She was only left to believe that those boys left her alone, causing her to take pity upon the girl.
Alexx hadn't much experience with siblings, as she was an only child. Though she could only imagine the anger that would form if specifically left out

She thought it to be keen of her to invite her to sit down together, though before she could call her over, the girl's eyes cup sharply, resulting in a confused glance from Alexx. She seemed to demand that she play with her, causing her to form a distasteful expression. Alexx wasn't fond of getting barked around, especially from someone younger than herself!

For a moment she contemplated yelling at the girl and refusing, though despite herself, she smiled faintly, holding out her hand.

"I'd love to."

Biography: (300 words minimum.)
Marie Jones was born on February 2, 1942 in Boston. Her mother being a muggle, and her dad being a wizard, she was a bit different than the other children. At the age of 7, her family moved to London, England. She was always wanting to play healer with her father, as she had no other siblings.

At the age of 11, her Hogwarts letter arrived. She was nervous to go to Hogwarts because she didn't really know anyone else her age. She was sorted into Slytherin at the Welcome Feast her first year. She was unsure why, but as time went on she realized it was because she wanted to be a Healer and wouldn't stop until she became one. At Hogwarts, she took the extracurricular to work in the Hospital Wing. She loved the experience so much, she did it throughout all seven years of her education at Hogwarts.

She wanted to work in the Maternity Ward, Orphan Ward, or Magical Psychology. As she went on at Hogwarts, she was always top of her class receiving all O's. She almost graduated top of her class, but was topped by two other students.

She decided to take a gap year to get herself settled in Wizarding London. She started looking for Magical Medical Schools, but was having trouble forming a list of them. She was very excited to become a Healer, but was still deciding what route she wanted to go. Her mother is a Healer in the Muggle world, so Marie looked to her mother for inspiration. Her father works in the Department of Mysteries for the Ministry. She was unsure if she had wanted to move closer to her parents, but she could also Apparate.

She was quite worried about Magical Medical School, thinking that she wouldn't be good enough to become a healer. She wanted to take an internship at St. Mungos, but didn't know where to apply.

Marie was walking through Diagon Alley to get a pet owl from Meg's Owls. As she was getting closer to the store, she heard a voice call out that their heel was broken. Wanting to help she made her way towards the voice.

As she was walking, she saw a redhead girl on the ground with a broken heel. She got closer to the ground and picked up the heel. "I heard you yell from down the street, so I thought I would help you out."

Marie got her wand out of the bag she was carrying. She placed the heel next to where it had broken off. She knew that she could use the Mending Charm. "Reparo." She said while pointing her wand at the shoe hoping that it would be fixed. She hadn't used the Repairing Charm since she had graduated from Hogwarts

Hi Marie,

Thanks for fixing the age!

Your biography still states that her birthday was in 1940 -- to ensure that your biography is consistent with your age section, please could you edit this to correct the birth year to 1942?

Once you've made the required change, please repost your entire revised application below, and we can get you accepted. Thanks!
