Student Applications / Re: Vivian Jangleton

Hi, Vivian!

Your application looks good, there's just a couple of things we'll need you to edit before we can get you accepted.

Firstly, you mention that Vivian's eyes are an unnatural blue colour. As per our rules:
Quote
All applicants should be human in race, and should possess character features (ex: hair color, eye color) typically found in nature.

If you could remove the word 'unnatural' from the description of her eyes and just keep them as blue (they could be a 'striking' or 'unusual' blue instead), that would resolve this issue.

Secondly, in your RP sample, you have Elena catching Hugh's rat. Given that the rat is Hugh's and therefore controlled by Hugh's 'player', this might be considered powerplaying if this were a real thread. You could end your post on 'Her hand shot out to try and catch the rodent' or something along similar lines instead, which would still leave Hugh's player the choice as to whether or not his rat is caught.

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!

Application for Hogwarts School




→ CHARACTER INFORMATION.

Name: Cressida Scrivner

Birthday: 21 June, 1948

Hometown: Fingringhoe, Essex.

Bloodline: Pureblood

Magical Strength (pick one): Transfiguration

Magical Weakness (pick one): Divination

Year (pick two): FIRSTIE!  second

Biography:

Cress has spent her whole life striving to be in front and refused to be put in anyones shadow.  A feat that has been quite the challenge considering her impressive siblings, whom with the exception the slobbering ones she looks up to. Thankfully, her parents have set her up for such a feat.  Her father works for Puddlemere United Quidditch team and despite his job being boring it has allowed her to roam the stadium like a VIP when she visits him at work and goes to games.  Then there was her mother who ran a cosmetic company, Wolffe and Scrivner Cosmetics, who developed wizarding make-up that was only worn by the best and prettiest members of wizarding society like herself.  Between her parents positions she spent plenty of time around the best, and has seen what makes them rise over the rest preparing her for her own ascent into greatness.

The first people she started comparing herself to were her two twin older brothers, and then the rest of her siblings followed as started focusing on wanting to be the best.  Her twin older brothers are adventurous, and when they wouldn’t let her join in adventures she tried to out-do them by coming up with grander ones of her own.  Beyond looking up to there adventurousness, that made them a formidable pair, she was rather certain that David would be boring without Devin, and Devin would have been seriously injured with out David keeping him in check.  She was independent and didn’t need to have a twin proving she was better than them both. Though she started studying as soon as they left for Hogwarts in earnest as she didn’t want David to have such a head start that she’d be seen as dumb in comparison.  Then there was her younger siblings Beau and Francine who so far only had cuteness going for them, and that was diminished by there lack of self sufficiency and occasional slobbering.  As for her eldest half sister she has the scared knees to prove she is both braver and more daring than Irma - and her mother was the reason the cosmetic company Irma co-founded is so successful.

Now she had her own letter to Hogwarts she was more than excited to get started there. 

Naturally she knew she’d miss the opportunities she had outside the castle, and part of her was nervous that the castle wouldn’t live up to the hype.  For instance she’d get to play on a quidditch team, but the occasional game of catch and bludger batting practice with real quidditch players from the best team was better.  At home if she wanted to look pretty in make-up she could always have her mother fix her mistakes, now she knew she’d have to spend extra time fixing her own mistakes if she put on make-up.  Plus, she could study what she wanted, minus things her parents forced her to, but at Hogwarts she’d be forced to study lots of boring things like Divination.

Though on the positive side everyone who was anyone went to Hogwarts for there schooling.  Hogwarts would be the next step in her ascent into greatness, and she fully intended to ensure that everyone had a front row seat to witnessing it.

Note: All statements/perspectives expressed above are Cress’ opinions and not subject to any facts that may contradict the basic premise of Cress thinks she is superior to everyone (and will ignore contradicting information even if obviously factual).

→ ADDITIONAL INFORMATION.

House Request: Slytherin

Personality:

Cress firmly believes she is the best!  Furthermore she actively seeks to demonstrate that to others thru showing-off, working hard to ensure she is on top of everything, and jumping at any opportunity for recognition she is confident she’ll succeed at.  The bad side of this is if she knows something won’t make her look good she’ll avoid it, or if it happened try to convince others the failure wasn’t her fault.  Naturally, she isn’t mean about blaming others, as popularity is key to being seen as the best.

→ SAMPLE ROLEPLAY.
You come across one of these posts on the site. Please select one & reply as your character. Remember, you can only roleplay your own character's actions, not Evangeline's or Hugh's.

Option I:

The dungeons. A place eleven-year-old Evangeline had not yet travelled since her arrival at Hogwarts.

A place she really was just fine with not knowing; but it was too late. The dare had been accepted, even if it had been done in fear of being kicked out of Gryffindor, like the older girls had said she would because Gryffindors were supposed to be brave.

The air changed instantly when she hit the main corridor of the dungeons. The dampness was almost too much for her and she instinctively took a deep breath to avoid the sensation of being suffocated. There was also a sour burning smell which Evangeline assumed was from many, many Potions lessons.

Further and further she walked, her steps so slow and gentle they made no noise against the stone walls and floor. The feeling that she wasn't alone crept up her spine and raised the tiny hair on the back of her neck. Shivering, Evangeline wrapped her arms around herself. Suddenly, she missed the warmth and comfort of the Gryffindor common room. The fire was always going and it made her feel at ease.

Why had she let those girls talk her into this? She was only eleven, she didn't have to be brave. Surely the Headmistress would not kick her out of Hogwarts for not being brave.

If only she had these thoughts while being dared to search for the ghost of one Emma Birch, whom supposedly haunted the dungeons. It was not, Evangeline had learned, the place where the sixteen-year-old girl's life had ended but as she had been from the house with a snake as its mascot, it was the place her spirit had returned to. That common room was down here somewhere, she'd been told.

Something - the small blonde girl wasn't quite sure what - but something made her stop in her tracks suddenly. There was a low, dull thumping noise. Or maybe that was her heart beating so loudly she thought it was coming from outside her body.

"H-h-hello?" Her voice was barely above a whisper.

Remembering that she was supposed to be brave, Evangeline tried again.

"Hello! Is Emma Birch here?"

The sound of her own words bouncing back at her off the walls made her jump.



She found it silly how people were scared of the dungeons.  She’d explored it throughly and was almost bored with it by this point.  Sure it had some opportunity for making someone look like a silly scaredy-cat, but she hadn’t been in Hogwarts long enough to risk purposely embarrassing anyone ( and furthermore no one earned it yet ). 

So she continued to walk confidently down one of the side passages of the dungeons taking a short cut to get to the other side of the castle.

“H-h-hello?”

The voice was weak.   

“Hello! Is Emma Birch here?”

She couldn’t stop herself from chuckling.  Though just as the sound escaped her mouth she covered it with her hand to quell the noise.  Hopefully it hadn’t been heard.

Moving forward quickly towards the voice she said “  She’s everywhere.  Ghosts can be invisible you know. “

Then she smirked as she didn’t recognize the voice, and with the soft whispered tones she doubted the other person knew that.  So hopefully that fact or the fact that someone was walking around like there was nothing to be scared of would make the other girl sound less weak in her tones.  As she had no time to deal with a scaredy-cat today.
