Both of her parents work in the minisrty although Joelle and Jessie's mother only works occasionally as she has chosen to be home with her girls.Joelle is 11 years old and applying to Hogwarts for the first time having received her letter. Joelle has long blonde hair and blue eyes like her mother whereas Jessie has the brilliant green eyes like their father. Joelle loves to read and learn new things. She is very academic and always gets the best grades. She prefers to be alone with a book instead of out socializing. Joelle loves to learn and excitedly shares everything she learns with family and friends whether or not they want to hear. Joelle looks up to her big sister but just isn't the social butterfly that Jessie is. She enjoys nature and being outside admiring her surroundings. she also takes pleasure in trying to be better than others. She compares herself  alot to her older sister even though they are very different personality wise and even in their looks. Joelle tends to be more of a momma's girl whereas Jessie has always been attached to their Dad. Joelle finds all things Muggle fascinating and loves to try to recreate Muggle things in her all magic environment. Joelle has a very infectious smile and can warm the heart of even the darkest wizard with her musically contagious laugh.
*** 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.

Please include these sections if they are not addressed in your biography.

Tell us a bit about your character’s personality (likes, dislikes, fears, etc.) What are they like on a good day versus a bad one? Is your character particularly cheerful? Do they hate sunlight?

Joelle will try almost anything and like it. She is very adaptable in new situations. The only thing she is afraid of is the dark. She is comfortable being alone and doesn't fear bugs. She dislikes water but isn't really afraid of it she just prefers to be on dry land.She has a particular talent for Charms and tends to practice it over and over. She is dedicated and will not give up until she has mastered a skill.
Briefly describe your character's appearance (hair color, build, stature, etc.) What effect does it have on their personality? For example, does the shy Ravenclaw girl secretly dye her hair black because she hates her natural blonde? Does the curly-haired Gryffindor use charms to hide his freckles?

Joelle is a little short but thin. She has long blonde hair like her sister but does not have the stunning emerald green eyes her sister does. Joelle's are more blueish green but she envies her sister's unusual eyes. She is very comfortable with her looks and body size and shape(except for her eyes) but often curls her hair to get it wavy like Jessie's since hers is so straight naturally.She doesn't mind being short.
You come across one of these three posts on the site. Please reply to one only as your character would.
*** Remember, you can only roleplay your own character's actions, not James' or Astrid's.

Option I:

Blimey, the Great Hall was packed. It seemed like everywhere a guy looked there was some clown waving around a House banner or yelling about the game.

'Can you believe it?' 'No way!' 'This must be the biggest upset in Hogwarts Quidditch history...'

Stupid Quidditch.

James flopped into an empty seat at the end of the table, shoved an empty plate out of the way, and let his head sink onto his crossed arms, squishing his freckled nose down flat against the tabletop. He wasn't sure why he'd even bothered to come here, since he definitely wasn't hungry. He'd probably never eat again, in fact. He didn'tdeserve to eat. He hadn't stopped in the locker room to change out of his muddy, sweaty uniform after the game either, because he was pretty sure he probably didn't deserve to be clean too; and anyway he couldn't stand to see the looks on his team mates' faces after he blew their chance at winning one of the biggest games they had ever played.

Just one lousy shot. That's all it would have taken. If he could have just got that one stupid foul shot to go through that one stupid hoop, they could have won and he wouldn't have been the biggest blockhead in the entire school.

As if to prove the point, half the people at the next table suddenly broke into a loud victory chant. James pressed his face further into his arms to hide the bright red blotches he could feel creeping up his cheeks. That was it. He was just going to have to run away and move to Nova Scotia. He'd just cost the three-year-in-a-row Champions the Quidditch Cup! How do you ever live that one down for crying out loud? He was only a second year and he was going to spend the rest of his life as 'that dumb cry-baby kid who dropped the Quaffle!'

It felt like every set of eyes in the room was boring into him, and James couldn't stand it anymore. He jerked himself back up from the table and stomped right back out of the Hall the same way he had come in. As he stormed into the quieter hallway outside, he could hear footsteps somewhere behind him. James rounded on the sound and began to shout, his brown eyes shining with tears. "WHAT! Haven't you ever seen a loser before? Why don't you just take a picture!"

Option II:

“Oh, come now!"

Astrid Bixby’s voice carried down the corridor, the tall blonde girl not far behind. Her interviewee – or victim, depending on perspective – turned a corner and she frowned. They were always soelusive when she needed them. Sure, they would talk as if there was no tomorrow during class, but once she actually needed them to say something, they were nowhere to be found. Gryffindors.

Flustered, Astrid stopped in the middle of the corridor and stared, her parchment hanging limply from her hand. She was a good reporter, really, and she always did her best to make sure that everything she wrote was accurate. She glanced down to the quill, eyeing it with disdain. It wasn’t her fault if her quill misquoted. How was she supposed to know? It made for interesting articles, at least, and if she had misquoted the Head Boy last term as saying he had a love for stuffed animals, then that gave him personality. Astrid sighed.

A pout formed on her lips as she turned away, discouraged. The corridor was mercifully empty, though the doors to The Spellbound – the school newspaper – were ominously closed. Corbridge was a mercifully sweet editor, but Astrid was terrified of disappointing her all the same. She hadto come back with quotes.
Her eyes, blue, trailed her surroundings before choosing a new path, and she turned down a new corridor. A figure was ahead, and her eyes lit up, an impossibly rosy smile blossoming across her lips.

“Hey!” Astrid called, her voice light and singsong. She trotted to catch the person, her shoes clicking on the stone floor. “Wait up! It’s for the paper!” Her legs aided her admittedly poor running, and Astrid gasped as she came closer. “What do you think about serving frog legs at lunch? Some say it’s a delicacy, but others think it’s plain gross.”

Sample Roleplay Response: Type in your response here.
Joelle who is normally quite shy, looked for a place to run to to avoid Astrid's probing questions. She knew better than to talk to that girl for anything for fear of being misquoted and getting herself in trouble. Seeing no way to avoid this situation Joelle smiled at Astrid and replied,"I think it's a matter of personal preference and not for us to say or judge others. If someone choses to not eat meat or only eat a certain food isn't that their right and not for us to judge,would you judge someone on the books they read or the color of their hair or eyes or even their name. I know I sure wouldn't. Just because frog legs are served doesn't mean we have to choose to eat them.We make our choices and we are responsible for our actions not the actions of others." Joelle realized she was rambling on and had probally lost Astrid's attention but she was not one to put up with any kind of stereotyping at all. Joelle started back up on her rant at Astrid who she knew was from the school paper,"different cutures have different traditional foods and we should embrace all cultures even if in our own minds it seems strange,maybe others find your customs strange did you ever think of that?" Joelle didn't wait for Astrid to respond she turned her back and started to walk away.

Joelle is very neat and when she is not reading you can usually find her cleaning or straightening things up. She believes there is a place for everything and everything in it's place and not a speck of dirt on anything. Joelle will never wear clothes that have stains or look worn,she never allows her face or hands to be untidy and is almost compulsively clean. Joelle does not like any kind of disorder in her life and it drives her crazy that her sister is so messy. She loves her sister and looks up to her but can't stand her habit of being untidy. Joelle's obsession with cleaning could become a possible annoyance for roommates.
