Biography: (100 words minimum.)
He was an investor, she was an herbologist - can I make it anymore obvious?

They met at an Appleby Arrows party, bonding over their lack of attachment to the aforementioned slumping team. Rest assured that as they drew ever closer in the corner of a gathering otherwise colored cheerful and pale blue, the undertones of grumbling between Hubert Thomas and Ethel Densfeld slithered their way to intrigued chuckling and coy smirks. Three and a half years and a century's worth of familial drama later, a poorly-attended ceremony united Hubert and Ethel in marriage until death would they part.

First came Laurel, bright eyed and spirited. She hadn't quite reached three when baby brother Bracken came along, darker hair and eyes in stark contrast. Named, of course, with flora in mind, the Thomas children grew up in a cottage in the countryside of Derbyshire that was ever adorned with greenery, snaking vines and vibrant flowers and leaves of every shape and size blanketing the home, an enchanting forest of their very own. They were very different, Laurel and Bracken. Rare were the moments of tranquility during the earlier years. Where elder sister bathed in golden sunlight, younger brother preferred to play in the dirt. She tried hard; talent and laziness kept him barely afloat, a level at which he seemed to thrive. It was responsibility versus mischief that laced through the shouting and wars. Hubert better appreciated his daughter while Ethel found endless endearment in her son, though much effort was spent to obscure those lines. Such was the nature of things, for a time.

Tragedy struck with much-accursed abruptness in Bracken's ninth year. An untimely duel broke out between colleagues outside of the greenhouses where Ethel worked, and an errant spell blasted through the glass to inflict ultimately fatal injury. Densfeld family having long abandoned her, she passed with her three dearest folk around her bed. Like the plants she so adored, the remaining family paled and withered in the wake of that loss.

Sister at school and father spending extra time in the office, Bracken found himself starkly alone. But with a schnoz for trouble and pervasive sarcastic charm, he found a place in the nearby muggle town. Bloodied noses, hiding in shrubbery and colorful lies built his legacy - until it was his turn to be booted off to school. And, once old enough, baby brother Bracken was expected to work when at home.


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:
"What?" he sputtered, thick smoke spewing out from the part in his lips. Hell, Quidditch? If that wasn't the biggest waste of time! He knew it was precisely the reason his mum and dad had gotten together, the reason for his own existence, and he knew it well - she used to bring it up all the time, swapping her punch line for something new but always equally embarrassing with each telling.

Used to, before she, well, croaked. That was a rivalry thing, all that, Arrows and Wasps and that rubbish. A yellow and black banner once clashed with the blooming pots in his childhood bedroom, back when she was around, but once the diehard Wimbeldon Wasp fan was gone, the sport just kind of tasted like as if he were to turn the cigarette hanging out of his mouth around and slurp on the other end.

"Merlin," Bracken huffed, posture slumping even further in the same split second that the corner of his lip twitched upward. He wasn't really supposed to be smoking, given his age and policy and the rest of that rubbish that too often tugged his eyes in a sharpened circle, hence why he was hidden in a nook by the park, but could it be that his hiding spot all out in the open there combined with the no-damns-given attitude might not fully veil his presence in partaking in what some might find to be vaguely illicit activity from the likes of the little weasel Hurst?

"Look, Judy-" It was almost apologetic, the manner in which he considered the feisty specimen then. He wasn't really offended by the brashness of her approach, and he also put forth no effort in constructing the name with the face of John Hurst's sister correctly. "-Don't take this the wrong way, but I'd rather, like, shove a broomstick through my eye than sit this pretty derriere on it." Another drag stoked the coals in his lungs.

Hello Georgis and Andros!

Welcome to the site, we're happy to have you!

That's right, you will not be able to find the "new thread" button for students now because term has already started and we do not accept new students during term. As you mentioned you had already picked up somewhere, student applications are open during our OOC ‘summer’ months: April, August, and December. Your next opportunity to apply as a student will be 1st December 2018.

In the meantime, you can apply here as an elsewhere child and elsewhere adult. As an elsewhere child and elsewhere adult you will have access to the Elsewhere forum where you can start roleplaying your characters in places such as Residential Wizarding London or Hogsmeade.

In regard to the name-change for Georgios Ambix, if you submit a helpdesk ticket here requesting that your name be changed to Braxton Bainbridge, an admin will be able to change that for you.

I hope that answers your questions! Of course, if you have any more questions, reply to this thread and we'll help you out!

Cheers!

Cladis

Suggestions & Questions / Application issues?
« Last post by Georgios Ambix on 19/09/2018 at 17:25 »
Hello - so this chap from Discord and I just registered as Georgis and Andros Ambix respectively, and would be father and were supposed to be father and son.

So - we tried to make an application but we can't seem to find the "new thread" button for students? Also, sorry for the inconvenience, but after we registered, we had some slight change of plans in which my character would not be Andros' biological father, so if it would not be too much trouble, would it be possible to rename my character-to-be Braxton Bainbridge?

Also, PS: did read something about the summer holidays and apps, but I wasn't sure if that was OC or IC, and I can't seem to find it again? Sorry that we're so green. ^^'

None.

Biography: (100 words minimum.)
Mathilda was not given the greatest start to her life, while many young couples would have been thrilled to find out that they were having a beautiful little girl, her parents were not. Or at least her mother was not, her father would never be aware of the beautiful little girl that would be born. In many eyes, she was seen as a mistake - something that should not have happened, perhaps a little rebellion of her mothers it had been, to sleep with a Muggle.

But her mother had ended up pregnant, her mothers parents had not been pleased with their 'pure' family being tainted by a mistake their daughter made. Things were arranged before Mathilda was even born - to have her taken away, placed into the care of someone else. Her mother would barely get to see the child before she would be taken away, as if the mistake was erased from the world.

So there she was, welcomed into the world and taken from any family she would know. The baby girl had been arranged to be taken in by a couple, they cared for her for several months, even naming the little girl - but the plans fell through as the couple had their own baby on its way by the time Mathilda was almost a year old. Instead of keeping her as their own, they gave up the custody of the little girl, instead landing her into a childrens home where she'd be cared for and raised until the day that she'd find a family to call her as their own.

These days Mathilda is a sweet young girl, having just turned eight years old she is incredibly inquisitive about the world around her, she loves to read and loves to explore. Often tagging along with other children to explore places that she knows she shouldn't wander around. She is not aware of her own history, at least not most of it - she knows her name is Mathilda - a name she was given, and Woods was the name given to her by the people who gave her up. She does not know the reasons, or about her birth family - she is however incredibly curious about learning about this - however no one seems to have answers for her.

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:
It was a rare thing for Mathilda to be allowed to go to the park, of course she was far from alone as a small group of children had ended up being taken to the park along side of her. But like always she took her time, trailing behind as curious eyes take in the world around her with a small smile, she had always loved to be outside no matter how old she got. It was a magic all of its own, how the trees changed and flowers grew as the seasons changed.

Glancing up above her, eyes curiously watched the brooms flying around. She had been wanting to learn how to fly for so long - but brooms fit for riding were a rare thing in the Children's Home she lived in. A meaningless expense she had heard one of the carers call it when she asked about a broom to learn on. With a small sigh she watched before noticing the one that was closer to the ground, watching as a small girl landed on the ground, clearly not pleased.

It was the voice though that drew the remainder of her attention, her eyes wide as she glances around before pointing to herself. "Did you mean me? I - wouldn't be against playing, are you sure you meant to ask me?", the small girl gave a tiny smile and a shrug before fidgeting with the zipper on her jacket, "I don't know how to fly though."
