Name: Bethany Emerson

Birthday:10th June 1949

Hometown: London

Bloodline:
Halfblood

Magical Strength (pick one):
Conjuring and Summoning

Magical Weakness (pick one):
Charms

Year (pick two): First/Second

Biography:

Bethany Emerson has never been a quiet person.

She was the "true" heir of her father and mother's mischievous spirits, she liked to proclaim, even though she was the younger twin. And with good reason too, for Anise and Bethany were different like oil and water, for while the former was quiet and sported a perpetual frown, the latter was loud and boisterous, always the center of attention and snapping people her way with a well timed prank, or a witty remark.

Others would say she was vain, sly, that she craved an audience too much for her own good, but the young blonde would disagree, saying that she simply liked to live in the moment, and always having the attention of the room was simply a side effect of her radiant personality. She didn't care for a moment, of course, that this very statement further solidified others impression of her as a self-absorbed girl.

Because for every one person she put off with her antics, three more were pulled in. The world would shake beneath her feet, and people like her simply didn't have time for the opinions of the irrelevant.

Option 1

The Gryffindor Tower, check. The Hufflepuff kitchens, check. The Ravenclaw Tower (why are there so many towers?), check. The only place left to map out were the Slytherin dungeons, which she had been putting off till now because contrary to popular belief, Beth Emerson did have some fears; dark, damp, enclosed corridors being one of them. She might've been more daring if Tip-Tip was there to egg her own, but alas, her cousin had poofed, and she was left alone.

But then she remembered, she was Bethany Emerson. Supposed to be braver than a Lion, smarter than an Eagle and more cunning than a Snake; someone like her simply couldn't be scared off by a little trip like this. Plus, she'd be able to rub in both Anise and Tip's faces that she had braved the dungeons alone, and with a great huff of determination, she set off on her quest.

Surprisingly, the dungeons weren't all that bad. Sure, it was damp and smelled horrible, but no icky frogs or anything. She gradually settled into a semi-comfortable silence as she walked, the lack of companionship being a completely foreign feeling to the young girl. Most of the time, she always had Anise to annoy or Tip to run around with, but here, alone in the dungeons, she fell into a contemplative melancholy.

That didn't last long, because she soon heard footsteps approaching from around the ben, and her soft features brightened up at the thought of a possible new friend. Feet dragged quicker as she hastened into a jog, eager to meet the mystery person. Someone similar to her age; judging by the sound of her footsteps. Her question, however, stumped her.

Who was Emma Birch?

Oh! It's that ghost girl that died a long time ago. Supposedly. Honestly, she didn't know why they still though poor Emma was a ghost when there was a REAL, VISIBLE and recently dead ghost that was hovering around the halls. They should be trying to find her. Then a grin crossed her lips, a positively wicked one, as an amazing idea came into her brilliant mind. With a silent cough to make her voice a few octaves lower, she whisper-shouted back, "NoOOOooOOoo, but Astro Marquis is! Run for you life!!!!"

Hi Bethany,

I noticed that you said you were planning on returning with Cayden next term in the Gryffindor returning thread. As per our site rules:
Quote
At the Castle, all players are permitted one student character at any given time.* Additionally, should you be selected to teach, you may have a Professor character in addition to your student. However, if at some point you decide you would like two student characters, you may purchase one with your Gringotts points.

Please could you clarify whether you want to keep Cayden at the castle or you want to replace him with Bethany?

(Having checked your Gringotts vault, you don't have enough points to purchase the Split Focus reward. However, if you want to try and do that before the end of summer, let us know below; please note that we won't be able to process your application until your withdrawal request for Split Focus has been approved by a member of the admin team.)

I plan to purchase Split Focus before the end of summer and play both Cayden and Bethany at the castle next term. I only posted Bethany's app because I thought it was required for summer duelling; sorry for the confusion!

No worries!

It can be a little tricky with timings to claim Split Focus the same term that you want to use it, so if you can follow the below process, this will ensure that there's enough time for us to process your app completely before term starts:

1. Earn the required number of points and post them in your vault by 25 August 2020, or sooner, if possible. The more time you allow us to process your Gringotts withdrawal and application, the less pressure we're under to complete it in time.
2. Contact an admin once you've posted your additional points to ask for approval for Split Focus and for vault verification.
3. The admin will need to verify your vault to ensure that you have enough verified points before you post your withdrawal.
4. Once the admin has verified your earned points, post your Gringotts withdrawal in a new post beneath the verification. You can also edit this post to add any additional earned points from summer. You should include which admin approved the withdrawal on which date in your withdrawal post.
5. It would be helpful to PM all admins to note that you have now posted your withdrawal; this saves us from having to periodically check whether or not the withdrawal has been made.
6. Once you have posted your withdrawal, we can go ahead and process your application in the usual way!

Let me know if any of the above is confusing or doesn't make sense, and I can try and clarify for you. Otherwise, have fun earning your summer points, and we'll process this application as soon as we can!
