I think that will work well enough, so I'm going to go ahead and accept this, since term is about to start. I'm going to send you a PM to discuss your backstory a little more, though.





Mr Peakes,

Hogwarts School Accepted / Kadence Brannen
« Last post by Kadence Brannen on 31/08/2017 at 02:03 »
Name: Kadence Brannen

Birthday: February 18th, 1938

Hometown: Dublin, Ireland

Bloodline:
Muggleborn / Halfblood / Pureblood / Unknown

Magical Strength (pick one):
Divination / Transfiguration / Charms / Conjuring & Summoning

Magical Weakness (pick one):
Divination / Transfiguration / Charms / Conjuring & Summoning

Year (pick two): Third, if possible, otherwise second

Biography:
Although Kadence's family was still whole, it was fragile. Her mother, a reporter for the Daily Prophet, was home less and less as the years passed. When she was home, tension was always high. Anxious for a good story, Laura Brannen was never exactly attentive over the short periods she resided with her husband and daughter.

Andrew Brannen, Kadence's father, was quite the opposite. A Ravenclaw, transfiguration was his passion. He spent his life researching and writing about it, even contributing to a textbook or two. But so much as he loved magic, he did not care much for the wizarding world.

On her mother's insistence, (and the fact that Andrew didn't care much about anything Kadence did) she was sent to muggle school to experience their side of schooling. Laura was muggleborn, and was sure that no matter what, it was best for Kadence to not be isolated from the muggle world even if it meant dreadful bullying and her classmates witnessing several unexplainable incidents.

Her first year at Hogwarts was quiet uneventful.

((Replying to option 2.))

Although through the gardens was not the most direct route to the castle, Kadence decided it was worth a little extra time to get some quiet time alone before heading back to the common room. It was rare anymore for her to find much time absolutely alone, and although she did like enjoying more classes and activities, it was a relief to have at least a small amount of time to just draw or daydream.

However, when she reached the gardens she found it was neither quiet nor solitary. There was a boy running around, sneezing, shouting something about Merlin, and generally acting like a fool.

Had he said something about a rat? Kadence caught a glimpse of scampering in a path of flowers. "Your rat? Escaped?" she asked, fumbling for words. Without waiting for an answer, she dove into the flowers, attempting to grab the rat.

Hogwarts School Accepted / Clara Lambert Application

Application for Hogwarts School




→ CHARACTER INFORMATION.

Name: Clara Louise Annabeth Lambert

Birthday: 18.08.1935

Hometown: London, England

Bloodline: Unknown

Magical Strength (pick one):
Charms

Magical Weakness (pick one):
Divination

Year (pick two):

5th and 6th

Biography:
Clara Louise Annabeth Lambert was born on 18th August 1936. Or at least they have given her this birthday. She has five siblings; three are older than her, two younger. Her adoptive parents, both Aurors, were actually surprised that she got the Hogwarts letter.
Although her parents are both aurors, her mother stays currently at home to take care of her younger siblings Amelia (5) and Harold (7). Her sisters Alice (19) and Heather (21) are already married. The oldest brother William (23) is currently working as a Charms teacher.
As a child, Clara was found without orientation in Diagon Alley. The two aurors Theodore and Cornelia that tried to find out who she belonged to, fell in love with her during the case and adopted her. Since she was found in a magical place she is probably half blood or pureblood, but there is no further proof of that.
They are really proud of Claras magic, since they weren't quiet sure whether she had magic abilities at all (there was a little chance that she was "just" a muggle, too). Clara was relieved, too. Since she had already seen three of her siblings graduate from Hogwarts. She loves being in the center of attention, probably because it is hard to stand out with five siblings.
When she first got to Hogwarts, she met Jenna and Bernadette, that got sorted into the same house. And since they shared the same bedroom from now on, they quickly became close friends.
Her first year was not special at all, apart from the fact that she had to get used to the everyday routine of the school. She had to find out many things by herself because she hates asking. She also avoids telling her story and her unknown blood status. Not because she thinks muggle borns are less worthy, but because she wants to exterminate every proof that she could not belong here. She loves studying and takes it to an aesthetic level. Good grades give her the self-confidence and attention she needs. Her favourite subject is potions. She likes the fact that there is only ONE right outcome and no other possibilities. She likes the accuracy of the subject. Divination was a huge mistake in her third year. She had thought she could cope, but she was disappointed. She doesn't like the idea that the future is not clear yet.
Right now she prepares herself for the OWLs and is very determined to get an outstanding in every subject. Will she achieve her high goals?


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

House Request: Ravenclaw

Personality:Clara is smart and ambitious, but also gentle and loyal when it comes to her friends. She tells a lot of inappropriate jokes and speaks sarcasm fluently. She really wants to prove herself. When she is determined to do something, she doesn't care about the consequences. Her quote of life is: "I cannot buy bread with love and friendship", although she breaks this code regularly. She'd really like to be tough due to her father's words that only indifferent people can achieve something, but if somebody is in danger or sad, she comforts them.
But she also has flaws. She is moody and is with that as changeable as the English weather. She likes it maybe a little bit too much to be in the center of attention. Although she acts really tough, she often takes things too personally and either builds a shield around herself or reacts inappropiately.


Appearance: Clara has got brown, shoulder long hair and green eyes. She is slim and very pale.

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

That rat of his was in for it now.

The gray little rascal had disappeared from his clutches at breakfast. Again.

Before Hugh even knew what was happening, Merlin had shot across the floor, somehow managing to avoid all the feet walking across the hall and had escaped through the open doors.

Which meant that Hugh was now stomping through rows of flowers and other various flora, searching for the small creature. It was like the rat knew Hugh was allergic to most flowers. Merlin always chose to run to the gardens whenever he got away from Hugh. It was as if the rat did not want to have him for an owner.

Hugh had named his pet Merlin because he had hoped the powerful name would give the rat more incentive to be more than a rat. Not that he expected Merlin to change into a wizard or anything, but rats were just so...useless, for the most part. With a name like Merlin, Hugh thought it might give the rat purpose.

The only purpose Merlin seemed to have was getting away from Hugh as often as possible.

As the fifth year trudged into the second row of flowers, not taking much care to avoid trampling the first row, he felt the first sneeze building up pressure in his nose and behind his eyes.

"You blasted rat! Where are you?"

He pulled apart a section of bright red flowers; he didn't know what they were called because he despised flowers, and ducked his head low to peer into the depths of the flowerbed. It was moving closer in proximity to the flowers that finally did it. Hugh took in three great breaths and then let out an almighty sneeze. It was strong enough to disturb some of the dirt on the ground before him.

Groaning, he stood up again and wiped his nose on his sleeve. It was as he was turning his head, his nose running up and down his arm, that movement in his peripheral vision caught his attention. Normally one who preferred to put his best face forward, Hugh was a bit embarrassed to be caught wiping his runny nose on his robes.

Nevertheless, Hugh put on his best haughty voice. albeit a bit thickly with his plugged nose and said, "Can I help you with something? It is not polite to stare."


"It is also not polite to imply to people that they are staring.", Clara replied unimpressed. Her eyes wandered to the flowers. The boy had destroyed most of them while trying to catch the rat, that was way too fast for him. She knew he needed assistance (the poor boy would never catch the rat regarding his rather alarming allergy), but since he hadn't asked for help and had been harsh on her, he would have to look for somebody else.
"Also I don't recall ever being that rude to an older student. You should better follow your rat if you ever want to see it again. Oh, and you should inform someone that you have destroyed the garden of this courtyard entirely. I didn't know how clumsy someone is able to act until I met you!"
She pretended to keep on reading and thought about her words. She knew her anger was unjustified but she hated getting caught, especially getting caught staring.

Hi Clara,

Thanks for making that change to your biography.

I noticed that you have also changed her brother William's profession from a researcher to Charms professor in Beauxbatons. While it's fine to say that William works at Beauxbatons, we prefer that players do not assign their characters such specific roles. Otherwise, we could end up with seven Charms professors at Beauxbatons, for example!

To avoid this, you can either change William's profession back to his original job as a  researcher, or simply remove the reference to teaching Charms (e.g. 'her brother William is currently working at Beauxbatons' would be perfectly acceptable).

Once you have made the required change, please repost your entire revised application below in this same thread (please do not repost your application in another  new thread!) and we'll be happy to take another look. Thanks!

Hi, Calypso!

Your application's looking good so far, there's just a couple of things I'd like you edit before we can get you accepted.

Firstly, in your biography, could you expand just a little more on what Calypso was like as a child? What were her feelings about her magic, what sorts of things did she like doing as a child? Did she get on well with other children? The more information we have about her, the better we can sort her!

Secondly, at the end of your RP sample, you have Calypso begin to walk away:

Quote
Huffing, she turned away, heading towards the willow tree where she left her satchel.

If this were a real thread, Hugh wouldn't have a chance to respond before Calypso leaves. You can still have her turn away from him, but it's best to have her remain in the same spot. You can easily fix this by either ending your sentence after 'she turned away', or changing it to something like 'she turned away, intending to head back towards the willow tree.'

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