Player of the Week!
Summer 1945

Every summer, the Mod Squad convenes and nominates one new player each week to the honour of Player of the Week! These new members have seriously impressed the summer counsellors, and we hope to see them around for many terms to come!
i've got sunshine on a cloudy day
when it's cold outside i've got the month of may
i've got so much honey the bees envy me
i've got a sweeter song than the birds in the trees

Week 1: Leonora Pendelson!
From the Mod Squad:

First impressions can be tricky in our boards. While those of us here judging have the benefit of practice, reading everyone else's writing and framing ours in a way that others would like, I definitely sympathize for the new people on the board that are doing so without the benefit of hindsight. Despite that, Lene completely shocked me with just how good her single post was (Yes, to me. I'm biased. Leave it. Go read it.) Really, to the point when I am considering going back and editing it so it does not look so terrible by comparison. Joking aside, I was extremely impressed by her character application and was ecstatic to start threading with her. If this was the first try here at Hoggies, I cannot imagine how great her writing will be next summer.
--Adrian Alric

It's always so awesome to see brand new players getting right into the thick of things, and Leonora has been awesome to watch! She's already begun laying down the foundations for her amazing character in plot pages and the infamous Char!Facts, and I'm stoked to see where she'll go and what she'll do next, not to mention the kinds of mayhem she'll cause when the castle opens next term. I can't wait to get to know her and her character better!
--Helen Kane

It's always nice to see a new player go into such depth with their very first character. Leonora is such a complex character and its impressive how much detail her player has figured out in such a short period of time. Can't wait to read more!
--Iola Ricardus

About Leonora:

What shall we call you? Do you have any favorite nicknames? I go by Lily, no nicknamed specified! I'll respond to almost anything, so feel free to call me whatever

How did you find HSNet? Aimless googling with the intent of finding a good Harry Potter site. I’ve been roleplaying on and off for a while. Recently, I'd stayed away from forums for at least half a year, but no matter how many times I leave, the world of roleplay always finds a way to pull me back in.

What made you decide to join? First off, the site is pretty. Besides that, it just looked like a good time! I had yet to join a large, very developed roleplay site like this one. I thought it was time to give it a try.

Which book is your favorite in the series? Hmmm… I think I’d have to say the Goblet of Fire.

Who is your favorite character from the books? Mrs.Weasly, for sure. She’s… amazing.

Who are you most excited to roleplay with, that you haven't yet? Personally, I’d happily throw myself at any and all members. I feel odd naming just one, but I do have a soft spot in my heart for particularly angsty characters.

What is one thread that everyone should read this very instant? Why? I have to choose? I don't think it's even possible for me to pick a favorite, and not just because I’m ridiculously indecisive. I have such a deep love and appreciation for all different types of writing styles. Can I recommend everything?

What is one thing about Leonora that no one knows? She’s probably one of the most self-conscious ball of nerves you’ll ever meet, even if she makes it impossible to see. She runs on other peoples validation validation validation.

What is one thing about Leonora that everyone should know? Her hair. She loves it. Compliment it, and her heart is yours.

What are you most excited about for when term begins? I’m very interested to see what house Lene winds up in! I’m also excited for Lene to really get invested in Hogwarts, explore the castle, get used to life at a new school, meet more people, etc.

Any last words?
Talk to me! I tend to be rather shy, so if I’m not the chattiest person, don’t take it personally! I’d love to have a conversation with each and everyone of you (hint: sara barellis and musical theatre tend to be my favorite weaknesses)
we take the pressure and we throw away
conventionality belongs to yesterday
there is a chance that we can make it so far
we start believing now that we can be who we are

Week 2: Lucian Grey!
From the Mod Squad:

Just look at this dude. I'm absolutely in love with the character, who fits the appeal of a perfect pureblood prat just perfectly, but reading his application opened up a unique character that takes what you'd expect from a Pureblood Heir and twists in some new and interesting ideas. The player has jumped into the site like an old pro, creating and replying to open threads, posting in plot pages, and signing up for Quidditch. It's exactly what you'd hope from a new player. I think we can expect great things from Lucian. And seriously, bruh, please be friends with Reggie.
--Reggie Graham

Lucian has hit the ground running like the Usain Bolt of forum-RPing. He's barely been here a week and has not at all been shy; already super involved, comfortable approaching other players to thread/plot with (ready with thread ideas and direction for character development!), and super super nice to boot. I'm really impressed with the way Lucian has taken to the site. And the cherry on top? Well, just go read some of his threads and see for yourself. Great work, Lucian!
--Icarus Argabright

Lucian is everything you could hope for in a new player—already super active and engaged, with a great foundation for character development and plenty of plots already in the works. I can't wait to read more!
--Euphemia Vane

About Lucian:

What shall we call you? Do you have any favorite nicknames?
My name's Martina but I usually go by Marty. :)

How did you find HSNet?
I found all you lovelies by Google search actually.  ^_^ This site was nominated as one of the best and oldest HP rpgs so I decided to register.

What made you decide to join?
Well, I hadn't rp-ed in a board in a really long time and I was kind of missed the plotting and the writing. But I also recently have been rereading HP again and just realized how much I missed that too.

Which book is your favorite in the series?
Order of the Phoenix! I think it's because the troops are still being rallied. No one really is dead yet (until the end) and there is so much to lose and so many possibilities still open.

Who is your favorite character from the books?
It's a toss up between Sirius and Hermione. But I guess I'd have to go with Hermione because we see her more throughout the books. I love her fire and her bossiness and how much of a ridiculous brainiac she is.

Who are you most excited to roleplay with, that you haven't yet?
Everyone!!! XD
It's hard to call out anyone and everyone on the site writes so well. I guess if I had to, most immediately it would be Fish because we have made plans to thread but haven't yet.

What is one thread that everyone should read this very instant? Why?
Ooo. I'm too new to have a favorite thread. So far I've only completed one and the rest are still ongoing.

What is one thing about Lucian that no one knows?
I guess sometimes he questions if he's really as straight as he says he is.

What is one thing about Lucian that everyone should know?
That he's kind of an arrogant jerk. He's all soft on the inside deep down, but you need a mining drill and a lot of commitment to get there.

What are you most excited about for when term begins?
To get Lucian sorted! Woo! And probably to explore the castle and Hogsmeade. (Omg Honeydukes!)

Any last words?
Come talk to me about plots! I'm kind of shy and I tend to stick and talk to the same people without leaving my comfort zone.
