Hi Ted,

Welcome to the site! :)

There are still a few times in your roleplay response where you are powerplaying. As Darcy explained, when replying to a post someone else has posted (in your case Hilary's post) you are not allowed to control the other person's actions. You can only control Ted's actions.

That means you for example can't write that Hilary says hi or that she sits down next to Ted. It is okay in your post to ask her to sit down, but you will have to leave it up to Hilary herself to determine what she does.

Please edit your roleplay response and post it below, and we'll be happy to look over your application again!

Hi Valron,

Welcome to the site! Before I can accept your application, there is just one thing I will need you to have a look at again.

Your roleplay response was great, however, what we are looking for is a reply to Hilary's post. What does Valron think of her accident? What does he say? Was it him the food went all over? Etc.

You come across this post on the site. Please respond as your character. Remember, you can only roleplay your own character's actions!

The dining hall was a loud, calamitous thing. Students sat scattered through the vast room, speaking various languages, laughing, and simply having a gay old time. A group of students towards the front of the hall sat huddled over a pile of sheet music. Black notes melted on to the off white parchment, splaying out a secret language, only readable to those who carried the gift. Another group sat watching a tall, thin upperclassman parading around her new ballet point shoes in awe. There seemed to be a group in the hall for everyone.

Everyone except Hilary, that is.

Poor Hilary stood soaking in the scene before her with a slight grimace on her face. Before coming to Beauxbatons, she had been overjoyed to begin studying magic, but now as she waded through her third week at the school, she felt lost in a sea of strangers. It wasn't that she was shy, no. Indeed, she even tried to reach out to some students. It was more that everyone seemed to already have their own clique, and Hilary felt so very unwelcome in all of them.

On her plate, she fidgeted with an assortment of vegetables and a delicate pork chop. That was the nice thing about Beauxbatons. Despite the many cold-shouldered students, the food was still incredible.

With a hefty sigh, Hilary strode into the dining hall. As she did, she let her mind wander to what life at the academy might be were she royalty. The students would bow at her feet! And of course she would only ever don the most elegant of robes, decorated in sequins, rhinestones, and laced with frills. All of the girls at the school would fawn over the level of grace she exhibited. Hilary would make wonderful royalty, yes that was certain.

Though, lost in her fantasy, Hilary failed to notice the leather bag lying at the center of the walkway. Failing to notice the bag in her path, naturally caused her to trip, spilling the contents of her plate all over the student sitting just beside the bag.

"Oh! I'm so sorry!"

Please post your edited application below, and I'll be happy to look over it again. :)

Hi Riana,

The Time Warp affected everyone in the wizarding community, also witches and wizards who lived among muggles. It was only the muggles who got left behind in the 1970s to continue their life with color TV and cassette tapes.

When the warp happened everyone's birth records changed, so if it used to say 1960, now it will read 1922.

For Riana this means that if she is 11 this year (1937), her birth record will read 1926, even if she technically was born in 1964 pre-warp. (Everyone who was born in 1926 before the warp happened will no longer be around, as they have been slid back to 1899.)
I know it is a lot of maths, but please feel free to ask if you have any questions at all! :)

I have included a quote here from the Time Warp Guide to explain things a little clearer for you.

Time warp is actually less of a warp and more of a slide. The magical world will be sliding back in time, which means all the generations will also be going back in time. While we will find ourselves in 1937, the magical world that existed in 1937 will find themselves in 1899. This is why our characters born before '37 won't find younger versions of themselves wandering around and magical people who have died will still be dead.

Since all the previous generations have shifted, all the official records will also be changed already by wizards in the past. For example, if your character was born in 1960, the records will now say they were born in 1922.

Since only the magical world is effected, Muggles will be left behind. It is possible for a few to be taken along if they were in a magical place at the time. However, the majority will not be able to go.

I hope this answers your question!

Application for Beauxbatons Academy


Name: Raven Evangeline Reinhardt

Muggleborn / Halfblood / Pureblood / Unknown

Magical Strength (pick one): Divination

Year (pick two): 4th (5th) – 3e (2de) Annee?

For as long as she could remember her name had been Raven Evangeline Aliyev. She knew of course that Alexei and Maryana weren't her parents by birth and Stanislav and Viktor not her biological brothers, but it had never really mattered to her. They were nice and treated her well. They loved her and she loved them. They were her family. To her it had never really mattered that her true name was Reinhardt.

Alexei and Maryana had known about Raven's heritage and the magic flowing through her veins from the moment they had accepted the baby girl into their family. It was a favor to a man they had know for a lifetime, a man they respected and even had come too see as a member of their family, despite their differences. They held Sergio Melachontes in high regards and his strange disappearance after the birth of Raven both saddened and puzzled them. They had thought he'd come back for his child. 

But years passed and Sergio never as much as sent a letter. Soon Alexei and Maryana stopped discussing it. What little they knew of the magical world scared them, and they wanted to spare the fragile child Raven was of such fears.

When Raven turned 11 she received a letter of acceptance to Durmstrang, and if the Aliyev family hadn't already known of the magic flowing within her, they knew now. The letter was discussed, even Raven's opinion was heard, but in the end a small note was returned with the owl declining the offer.

Alexei and Maryana were concerned that, bright as she was, Raven would suffer away from the family. She had always been a physically fragile child and especially during the long winters her asthma was severe. And she was happy at home. She'd attended the small local school and was fine there. She had a few friends, though her brothers always remained her closest allies. They really did not see much point in sending her as far away as Durmstrang and thus she stayed at home.

They did, however, have frequent contact with an old lady living in the village. Sofya was a witch, and she was able to teach Raven the basics of magic. She soon discovered the girl's interest in Divination and the weekly lessons often concentrated on that subject above anything else, leading to a rather uneven education. But Raven was happy and never grieved about not being at Durmstrang. She felt safe and comfortable in her home in the small village in central Russia.

In the winter of 1974 when Raven was 14 and a half, she celebrated the last New Year with the Aliyev family. The entire village gathered at the village square just before midnight and the anticipation of the arrival of 1975 was great. As the clock at the town hall struck 12, Raven cheered with her family and shouted her 'Happy New Year!'

Then everything went quiet and darkness settled around her. She looked around the previously buzzing town square, but now there was nothing. Nothing and no one but the old witch Sofya. Everyone else had disappeared.

After the time warp Raven is left alone with nothing but a name she's never used and the friendship of an old woman. Sofya helps her to use the Floo Network and travel to London where she tracks down the Reinhardt family. Her family.

She's accepted into the family, but not without struggles, and before long finds herself on yet another journey, this time to the famous French school, Beauxbatons.

Raven has always been rather timid and shy, but she values friendship and the closeness that her adoptive family has always provided her with. When you first meet her, she might seem like quite a pushover; she lacks physical strength, she's shy, she hates arguments and often tends to shy away from any discussions or confrontations, but when you get to know her better she can be surprisingly strong. Especially if someone threatens the people she loves.
Raven is an observer more than a doer, and through her observations of people she sees a lot. She seems to have an understanding of people and their feelings that not many 14 year olds have, but then again, she's also grown up surrounded by adults and brothers who were quite a bit older than her. 

Raven is of average height, slender and has dark brown hair and blue eyes. Her Russian heritage shines through, and if you didn't know it, you wouldn't guess she had Latino blood running through her veins as well.


Please reply to the Sample Roleplay below.

Raven sat in the middle of the dining hall, surrounded by students. There was talking and laughter, giggles and squeals. Even an argument seemed to have erupted towards the back of the hall where a group of boys were seated. Raven kept her eyes on the blond girl next to her, who was telling a very animated story.

Somehow she had managed to join a group of students. They all seemed nice and she knew a few of them from her classes. They seemed to be a fun, albeit large, crowd, and Raven was quite happy to be able to sit with them. She smiled slightly as the girl chattered away excitedly.

The only downside was that they all spoke French. And she didn't.

Concentrating on the facial features of the speaker, Raven did her best to read whatever she could from the girl. She was happy about something, that was clear from the smile and the giggles as well as the glint in the bright blue eyes. The tone of her voice also spoke of excitement. Maybe she'd done well at a test, or received a present. Everything was possible.

Suddenly, while sitting deep in her own thoughts, Raven felt something land in her lap. Surprised, she looked down, only to discover what looked like someone's dinner all splattered over her clothes.

"Oh! I'm so sorry!"

Light blue eyes moved from the spilled food to the girl standing behind her. “That's...” Raven blinked and she could feel herself blushing, while warm gravy seeped through her white blouse. Embarrassing.

“It's okay, don't worry,” Raven said quickly, her voice hushed. With a napkin she began picking up the pieces of vegetables and placing them carefully on a spare plate. She was sure she could feel the entire hall looking at her, and she held her head low.
