Zo & Co

Biography: (300 words minimum.)
Eleven

“Oh, come off it, you git!” she roared with laughter. The sorting hat just announced her entrance into the best house in the entire school: Gryffindor. Seated amongst the crimson and gold, she found her place, her home away from home. So what was missing?

Her gaze found the next victim of the old, tattered hat. Trailing his dark skin, taking in the beauty he held, their eyes interlocked.

“Ravenclaw!” the hat shouted, her heart dropping.


twelve

“My father is in real estate,” she cooed, head in Hugo’s lap. Their group sat by the lake, tangled into one another, finding the solace they all yearned for.  Never did she think a group like them, of every house, would find an immediate bond last term, but it came effortlessly.

“My mum is a Healer. Quite popular, or so I hear my father saying,” Jude’s snort brought a laugh from her lips. “What? It’s true.”


thirteen

“Noah, you know, you should really stop frowning so much. It’s seriously giving you wrinkles,” she whispered across the library’s table, books sprawled between them. “You’ll never find a girlfriend with that attitude.”
Hugo’s laugh brings an unexpected blush to her features. “Oh hush, you won’t either.”


fourteen

Their first kiss was as magical as she imagined it would be. Fingers lost in her hair, a palm felt on the small of her back.  The spark was evident, his touch electrifying every inch of her skin.
Did it always feel like this?
Hugo’s breath was warm against her lips, parting to fill their lungs with oxygen.


fifteen

“Clem, just ask him out already,” she whined, annoyed at the only girl she ever gave a damn about. “It’s not hard, I promise. Just walk right up to him and ask him. He can’t say no.”
“He won’t say no to you, Clem. Just try,” Hugo’s voice echoed from his place between Winnie, arm draped around his girlfriend’s shoulders.


sixteen

“Ig, you look dashing, mate,” her voice held an element of surprise. “There won’t be a person there that will be able to keep their hands off of you!”

The party was starting soon, the celebration of Noah’s birth, the group getting dressed together in the spacious mansion of the Jude’s family manor. It was kind of their friend to throw such a party, but deep down, Winnie knew there was a part of Noah that wished it wasn’t happening.

Boys and their pride.


seventeen

“I love you, Hugo,” she spoke before pressing her lips to his own. The last day of term and realization was hitting her hard. Never would her and her friends be younger than they are on that very day. After their summer trip, it would be time to be adults and begin their journeys to find their own place in the world.
And she only wanted to spend it with Hugo.


eighteen

No longer did her brash behavior see the light of day. Her smiles had slowly faded, noticed by those around her, including during her internship at St. Mungo’s. The shining star had dimmed dramatically.
“….see other people,” her chest tightened as the words fell from her lips.
The tears didn’t flow until the door closed.


nineteen

Ig,

I’m sorry we haven’t spoke lately. Work has me terribly busy. I hope all is well.

Xoxo
Win


twenty

“How have you been, Noah?”

Clatter of silverware, wandering eyes, half-filled wine glasses. He aged better than imagined, but forever would he remain the self conscious Hufflepuff that she befriended so long ago. The curl of his lips earned the same response from her.

“I’ve missed you, Winnie.”


twenty-one

“You look good,” the yearning in her heart cried at the sight of her ex.
Why would the gods play such a cruel trick?


twenty-two

The memories were slowly fading to the back of her mind. Mexico was no longer haunting her.


twenty-three

Becoming a Healer was the greatest thing she could ever imagine. The smiles, the pride swelling in her chest, and the never ending hours; it was all she imagined for her adult life.
Wasn’t it?


twenty-four

The letters were less and less frequent, the faces of old friends fading away, much like their photos that hung in the study of her lavish home. She was beginning to forget what their voices sounded like, what it meant when they exchanged their affections. The truth was upsetting, but it was just that.


twenty-five

Her heart stopped and raced all at once.
Was that….Jude?
No, no, no.
It couldn’t be.

Could it?


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:
The day was just beginning, being her day off from the long hours of the hospital. Truthfully, she loved her job just as much as the next witch, but today felt different. Like she had been locked up for centuries, not been able to see sunshine for that duration. There was an aching in her that she couldn't rid, and hadn't the faintest idea as to how she could fix the problem.

After apparating to the busy streets of Diagon Alley, she kept her purse close, under her right arm. The beautiful weather gave her an excuse to wear a beautiful pale blue dress, ending just below her knees. Her long, dark hair was down in curls, dressed to impress whomever she might see.

Anything could happen.

On her way to the robe shop, a voice calling for help caught her interest. Her head turned in that direction, eyes peaked in curiosity. Following the frantic voice, Winnie found a woman sitting on the ground with a shoe in her hand. Frowning, the former lion marched right up to her.

"You aren't a damsel in distress, woman. Get the 'ell up."

Hogwarts School Accepted / Arwynn Alvarez // Student Application
« Last post by Arwynn Alvarez on 10/04/2017 at 02:44 »

Application for Hogwarts School




→ CHARACTER INFORMATION.

Name: Arwynn Sofia Alvarez

Birthday: August 30th 1934

Hometown: London, England

Bloodline:  Pureblood

Magical Strength (pick one): Divination

Magical Weakness (pick one): Conjuring & Summoning

Year (pick two): 6th or 5th

Biography:
If you are applying to be a first, second, or third year, your biography must be at least one hundred words long.
If you are applying to be a fourth year or above, your biography must be at least three hundred words long.


The Alvarez family had always been a wealthy and well-known family in the wizarding community. This was no secret to Arwynn, who, from a young age, realized that while money could not buy you happiness it could certainly grant you power and that could sometimes be close to the same thing.

Raised mainly by her nanny, Arwynn’s parents were never very attentive to her. They still expected the very best of her, and in return, her every wish was granted. She was granted expensive clothing to attend prestigious parties filled with the pureblooded elite. From an very young age, she was pushed together with the finest pureblood families. She was taught that halfblooded witches and wizards, while tolerable, were still on a lower tier. And muggleborns? They were just as bad as muggles and not even worth her time.

No expense was spared when it came to her education. From prestigious tutors and studies abroad, she was to receive the best education available.

The young pureblood was treated like royalty and thought nothing of it. It was just how life was for her.

Her family’s name went from well known to downright infamous when her father was, after a lengthy and expensive trial, carted off to Azkaban for attempting to eradicate muggleborns. Did she miss him? ‘Miss’ was a strong word. It wasn’t as if she saw much of him anyway. But it did make her a bit uneasy.

If her own father could get tossed away for attempting to rid the world of dirty blooded rats, what else could the ‘justice system’ get away with?

With her father locked away in Azkaban after a very public trial, Arie and the remainder of her family have relocated to London. Shortly after their arrival, Arwynn received her acceptance letter to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and is geared up to start her first term abroad.

→ ADDITIONAL INFORMATION.
Note: This section is optional, and is up to you to complete.

House Request: Slytherin.

Personality: Wicked, conniving, judgmental, unapologetic.

Appearance: Dark hair, thin build, average height.

→ SAMPLE ROLEPLAY.
Please reply to one of the Sample Roleplays below.

Arie cut through the gardens, walking around the many bushes flora. In her arms were a stack of books for her various classes that morning. She wasn’t in a rush. Not really. Arie didn’t rush. If she was late, she was late. There was no form of punishment they could give her that would excuse the mud on her shoes she’d sustain from cutting though the plants. Besides, she could always get notes on the beginning of class from someone else.

Or take them forcefully. She grinned at the thought.

Suddenly she was interrupted by shouting and sneezing, and she nearly dropped her books. Quickly, she adjusted her grip on the books and glanced around for the source of the disruption. It didn’t take long for her eyes to land on a boy who was busy mopping up his nose with the sleeve of his robe. Disgusting. Absolutely savage.

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

For a moment, she just glared at him, coldly, hoping he could feel the ice in her stare. Nobody, nobody, talked to her that way. Least of all a snot infested plant dweller. “I can assure you, if I needed help with something,” her eyes raked critically over his body, toes to head, “I certainly wouldn’t enlist the help of a great human handkerchief like yourself.”

Biography: (300 words minimum.)
Born and bred at France, Katerina Arabella Duchenne was the oldest daughter of a powerful criminal. The rebelliness of her late teens leaded to an involvement with Peter La Beau - a boy three years older than her, poor, muggleborn and one of her father's henchmen. In resume, everything her family wouldn't approve. They fled in the middle of the night shortly after her graduation at Beauxbatons and settled up in London the best they could. What was not much, to say the least.

She probably could come to really love him, at some point in a distant future - especially after those frail moments after a miscarriage at some point in the four years they lived together. The dreamful, optimist way of Peter a clash against her realist and pratical mind. If given the chance, it could have worked for them.

Unfortunately, he died. A bad case of splinch.

Being an escort was not even close of being her first choice, and yet it was better and more profitable than spend the rest of her days cleaning tables, rooms and sheets - and a girl couldn't live just with the meager tips after singing in rundown pubs. The galleons would be the same, anyway. She moved to a far better quaint little house in Rose Street, leaving behind that unsavory rat-hole that couldn't really be called a flat at all.

Too many others love endeavors had taught her that she had a rotten finger for men and a taste for crapules. If she could, she would keep her career as her singer as her only source of profit. She prefers to spend her spare time alone - be it in art galleries, in day walks at Godric's Park or just lazily sprawled in her garden while reading a book. Nowadays, she rarely thinks about the life she left behind and is considerably satisfied with her surroundings.

Roleplay Response:
Type your response here.


Option Two -

Katerina pursed her lips with displeasure. She was already regretting getting out of home at all.

It was one of her rare day offs, and by some reason only Merlin could understand, she had thought that coming to Diagon Alley was a good idea. It was clear as the day how much she as wrong, now. She had no problem with crowds, very much the other way around to be honest, but this didn't mean she enjoyed the endless 'pull-and-push' flow of the rush hours. But it was also an incredible dull day- no, incredible dull week. Boredom had been pouring down through all her pores, making her skin itch for some entertainment.

Her flowered summer dress was tarnished by damp stains of red and gold. It was starting to seep through the cloth and reaching her skin. Great she tought while drawing her wand and muttering a quickly "Tergeo". Well, at least she wasn't glistering anymore, even if there was nothing to be done about the dampness. Maybe she had been acting a little edgy today, but she also couldn't bring herself to care. She spent most of her time being all forced smiles and pleasantries, she had the right to act a bit uncivilized sometimes.

But she also remembered herself - just in time before she snapped at the poor man - that it was not like she would die just because of some snow pouring at her. She could as well act like an adult, at least. With an undignified sniffle, she said:

"Better watch your feet, monsieur."

Hi Katerina!

Your application is looking good, there's just a couple of things that'll need editing before we can get you accepted.

Firstly, your levels are slightly unbalanced. Your lowest ability must be at least half of your highest ability, which means that your Summoning levels need to be at least 5 for your Charms levels to be 10. You'll either need to take a level from somewhere else to put in Summoning, or you'll need to submit a special request for unbalanced levels.

Secondly, while it's fine for Katerina to be an escort, please bear in mind that the site rating is PG13 and mature themes need to be suitable for younger players as well. If you could edit the less subtle parts about Katerina's job in your biography to make them more discreet and more suitable for the site rating, that would be great.

You also mention Grimmauld Place in your biography. On our site, places like Grimmauld Place that are associated with specific families from the original series do not exist. Please could you rename the building to something else?

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!
