    2 - Your Hogwarts Letter (and how you got it)

    Tinsley was perched up in a tree, a book open in front of her as she read her favourite fantasy book for the eighth time that summer. It had all the best fantasy content. Dragons, magic, action, and adventure. The first time she had read the book she spent a whole week running around pretending to be the main character. She was about to flip the page when suddenly an owl landed on the branch in front of her. “AH!” She screamed, eyes wide. Her book fell from her grasp and landed on the ground below her. The owl was watching her, looking as if it was impatient with her. “W-what do you w-want?” She stuttered, shrinking back against the tree trunk. The owl scooted closer to her and it was then that she noticed it had a letter held out towards her. Confused she cautiously reached forward to take the letter, scared that it was going to peck her hand. As soon she took the letter the owl took off flying with a goodbye hoot. The brunette sat there for awhile, confused and almost in a daze at the bizarre interaction that just happened. Finally she looked down at the heavy letter in her hand, it was addressed to her in the exact location of her bedroom. Well that’s unsettling. She flipped it over and took in the thick wax seal with some type of design on it. The eleven year old opened up the envelope and pulled out some parchment. Flipping it open she couldn’t believe what she was reading. It was like something out of her favourite fantasy book. A school of witchcraft and wizardry? Tinsley quickly climbed down the tree and took off towards the house, excited to tell her parents about the letter and the strange way the owl behaved. This was the most exciting thing to have ever happened to her.
  17. Dianna Sommer

    2 - Your Hogwarts Letter (and how you got it)

    The morning of Dianna's birthday was always a special one. Annie and Lee made sure the little girl they brought into this world knew love every day of her life, but they always went that extra step for birthdays. This one, however, would be the most special of all. Dianna woke up to the smell of her favorite breakfast, pancakes with sausage links covered in maple syrup. She was just about to place her feet on the floor when the door to her bedroom burst open! Annie was holding a breakfast tray and Lee had one hand behind his back. His other hand was waving about like an orchestra conductor as they both sang happy birthday to their daughter. Dianna squealed with excitement as she covered herself back up and waited to be doted on. When they were done singing, Annie placed the tray on Dianna's lap and kissed her forehead. "Happy Birthday my little love.", she whispered. "My turn!", said Lee as he playfully ushered his wife out of the way. "Eleven years old..... WOW! Well, I guess its time you got a job and moved out!" "Daddy! Don't be silly!" said Dianna. "Silly... Me? Never!". Lee scrunched up his nose and then smiled at his daughter. Just as Dianna was about to protest more, Lee held out his hand and presented the little girl with a small green box. "We both know that, any day now, you will receive a special letter. We have discussed the importance of this day many times and I think we are all excited." Annie nodded but Dianna's eyes fixated on the box in her fathers hand. "Before that letter arrives, your mother and I would like to give you something just as special." He places the gift in his daughters hand. Dianna opened the box and removed a small emerald. The morning light that poured through her open window made the stone sparkle and her eyes locked on to a tiny speck in the center. "Whats this?" Lee began to explain the importance of the emerald Dianna now studied. It was a reminder that, no matter how beautiful something seems, everything has an imperfection. No one is without flaw and it is ok to make mistakes. Dianna's parents knew that their sweet girl would face many challenges and wanted to her to know that is alright to stumble. As long as she tries her best and keeps her heart open to others, she could always sparkle. Dianna held the emerald close to her heart. Just then, a breeze filled the bedroom. An auburn feather landed softly on the floor just beside the bed. The soft hoot of a full faced owl broke a sweet silence as Annie intercepted the letter. She turned to Dianna. "I believe this is for you."

    1 - Character Roll Call

    Character Name: Dianna Sommer Have you read and understood the rules of this board?:Yes Will you wait for your Roll Call post to be approved BEFORE posting your letter?Yes Character Face:Maisie Williams Character Masterlist Entry: Williams, Maisie - Dianna Sommer ----------- 200 words (minimum) on family history: Lee and Annie Sommer are a later in life love story. They met well after their schooling at Hogwarts and both had fairly established lives before marriage, let alone a family, was ever on the table. Annie was a 33 year old field reporter for her local newspaper covering a story on the opening of BEAN DREAM, the newest coffee shop in the neighborhood, when she met Lee. Lee spent the better part of his 35 years alive working toward being a business owner. He thought his life was perfect when the doors of BEAN DREAM opened. He agreed to meet with a reporter to provide some good publicity for his shop. On the day of the interview, his jaw dropped when he saw the beautiful blonde that walked in with a lanyard around her neck with the press ID badge dangling from a clip. A simple interview led to a deep conversation over hot java the next day, which sparked a year long relationship ending in a union. Soon the couple would welcome a beautiful baby girl, Dianna Sommer. The child grew up surrounded with love, happiness, and a hint of magic. Dianna formed a bubbly personality and fondness for jokes. She wants to be friends with everyone she meets and was raised to be kind and gentle. She has a massive respect for her elders but tries to bend the rules every chance she gets. She never had a sibling and yearns for a sister of the soul. She is energetic and can't wait for all the new adventures ahead. Existing familial relationships to on board characters: No existing relationships. 100 words (minimum) on personality: Dianna Sommer has been described by her parents as sweeter than Christmas pudding. Her laugh is infectious and she lives to please. She keeps a notebook filled with jokes that she thinks would make her dad laugh and reads them to anyone that will listen. She likes to push rules to their limits but feels bad when she goes too far. Her pureblood parents taught her to never look down others no matter what. He dislikes people who are mean and tease others. She can be scrappy when need be. She was taught to never start a fight, but not to be so passive as to let others make her a target. She may seem like a bit of an airhead, but her cunning has left many a playground adversary baffled. This is the complex girl named Dianna.
  19. Tinsley Blake

    1 - Character Roll Call

    Character Name: Tinsley Blake Have you read and understood the rules of this board?: Read and understood Will you wait for your Roll Call post to be approved BEFORE posting your letter? Yes Character Face: Cindy Mello Character Masterlist Entry: Mello, Cindy - Tinsley Blake ----------- 200 words (minimum) on family history: The Blake family is not special or well known in any circles beyond their neighborhood. They haven’t done anything extraordinary or wild that would bring themselves attention. They are an average family, with average jobs, who live in an average house, and attend average schools. Until Tinsley received her letter, then it was as if suddenly her world was turned upside down. Her parents Robert and Melissa, started acting differently, taking extra care to seem even more average than normal. Unbeknownst to Tinsley, her seemingly average muggle family was scattered with witches and wizards throughout her ancestry. A fact that the muggles in the family fight hard to keep a secret. Robert is an accountant at a local corporate office and has had the same office for the last twenty years. Melissa is a senior partner at a local law firm where she has worked for the past eighteen years. The family has lived in the same house for the last ten years, moving in when Tinsley was just a year old due to needing a larger house for their family. Tinsley is close with her grandparents on both sides of her family, even though they don’t visit Melissa’s parents very often. Roberts parents are also very average people who are just enjoying retirement. Whereas, Melissa’s parents travel and do more extravagant activities. Things which Melissa deems “too exciting” for her family’s average lifestyle. Existing familial relationships to on board characters: None 100 words (minimum) on personality: Tinsley is a quiet girl who keeps to herself. She can normally be found with her nose in a book while perched in a tree. She’s never been the type to back talk or have an attitude. The only exception to her quietness is when she makes a very close friend and they’re talking about a subject Tinsley is passionate about. Due to her talkative old brother there’s not been much opportunity for her to have a chance to have to talk. She loves her family fully and is happiest when she’s with them. She finds it difficult to make friends due to her quiet and introverted nature.
  20. Averia Gillian

    2 - Your Hogwarts Letter (and how you got it)

    Averia would have liked to have said that she had known exactly when her Hogwarts letter would come in, but she couldn't. And after a long day of celebrating her birthday with her friends and family, opening presents, eating cake, and the like, to her it didn't really matter at the moment. All she wanted to do was hop into her bed and take a bit of a nap before getting down to the business of really exploring what she had gotten present-wise that day. That wasn't to be, however. Averia had no got up from the living room couch to head to her room when she heard a soft tap tap at the bay window. She turned to see a brown owl outside of the window, flapping its wings frantically as though to get her attention. Looking closer, Averia noticed that something was tied to its leg. She walked quickly out to the porch and went to where the owl was perched on the rail; untying the letter from the bird's leg. So absorbed was she in staring at the writing on the front of the envelope that she barely noticed it when the owl flew away. The first thing she noticed was that the writing on the envelope was in green ink. The next thing she noticed was that it was addressed to her. Turning the letter over, she then spotted the very familiar crest which sealed the envelope closed. It was from Hogwarts. Averia immediately knew what it was, though her mind went temporarily numb with disbelief. She carefully opened the envelope and pulled out the letter. "Dear Miss Gillian, we are pleased to inform you that you have been accepted to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry..." Averia re-read this opening sentence a few more times before regaining her wits and running into the house to show her parents. "Mum! Dad! It came! My letter came! Read it! I'm going to Hogwarts!"
  21. Vincent Sorrows

    2 - Your Hogwarts Letter (and how you got it)

    It was pouring rain outside Vincent's window when she awoke. Although it was technically summer, this wasn't unusual; even for the generally bleary climate of Ireland, the patch of countryside the Sorrows lived in was renowned for the strange weather patterns that seemed to make it rain more days a year there than anywhere else in the country. It was lucky, therefore, that Vince didn't mind this. The creaky window shutters of the old house shuddered above her head with a gust of wind, and she felt a light smattering of raindrops across the top of her head, but this only served to put her in what counted for Vincent as a rather good mood. She rolled out of bed, straightened out the heavy duvet behind her, and slipped her feet into a pair of slippers to avoid the cold stone on her toes, before finally making her way down the cramped wooden staircase and emerging in their tiny cottage's kitchen below. Of course, her fathers were already there, reading a newspaper each from their respective worlds. "Morning, father. Papa," she said, giving them both an obligatory kiss on the cheek before she took her seat at the other end of the table. The chair she sat in was gorgeous, antique rosewood with a red velvet cushion; but the red velvet was wearing down to stiff, itchy fabric in some places, and it was mismatched with all the other chairs. Vincent folded her legs underneath herself, the billowing legs of her black pyjamas, several sizes too large for her tiny frame, hiding the faded edges of the chair. It was only once she was fully settled into her seat that Vince noticed something. Set wedged between the brass goblet and plate which always sat at her place in the table when she came down for breakfast, a thick piece of parchment was folded. "Is it my letter?" Vince asked, flatly. There wasn't much enthusiasm in her voice; there never was. Across the table, father nodded. Papa didn't look much like he knew what was going on, but that was normal when it came to magic. Vincent looked at the thick wax seal of the letter, and then picked up a slice of toast. It wasn't like she hadn't known she'd be going to Hogwarts this September. She'd read it in a while.
  22. Vincent Sorrows

    1 - Character Roll Call

    Character Name: Vincent Sorrows Have you read and understood the rules of this board?: Yes Will you wait for your Roll Call post to be approved BEFORE posting your letter? Yes Character Face: Ellen Page Character Masterlist Entry: Page, Ellen – Vincent Sorrows ----------- 200 words (minimum) on family history: When Vincent's dads met, by total happenstance one rainy night as they both sheltered in the same small Manchester pub, they instantly saw a kindred spirit in one another. Their upbringings and life circumstances had been, in fact, incredibly similar. They both came from money, too much money –– the kind that meant grand manors and boarding schools and tradition and a sense of legacy following you with every echoing step. But during both their childhoods, their families faced an enormous change; the ruin of not just their finances, but their reputations, too. They'd lost their houses, their money, and everything about their past lives. They were both left with nothing but that sense of legacy, and nowhere to put it. Amongst all these huge similarities, there was only one major difference between their upbringings: Archibald came from one of the longest-running, traditional pureblood families in the magical world, and Quentin was a muggle. The ostracisation Archibald faced from his family for this was no small matter, and is a large part of the reason that the new couple chose to move elsewhere to start a life together. In the secluded Irish countryside, surrounded by not much of anyone or anything, they bought the small crumbling-down farmhouse that was the only thing they could afford, and filled it with the once-precious heirlooms from their previous lives, now falling into disrepair. It was here that they raised their daughter, Vincent. While they both hold real love for her and have always tried to show it, there is no denying that Vincent's childhood has been lonely, and that often, she's felt more like she's living in a memorial to something that once was, rather than any real life. Existing familial relationships to on board characters: none. 100 words (minimum) on personality: Vincent is, in a word, gloomy. This doesn't necessarily reflect her happiness or lackthereof with life in general; in fact, inside, she's usually pretty fine with whatever is going on around her. But it's so rare to catch her with a smile on her face that her fathers have competitions to try and get a photo of it. Vincent's favourite things are rainstorms, gross potion ingredients, and the ghoul who lives in their attic; she just likes the world a little darker. Despite the family's lack of current wealth, Vincent has always been drawn to the look of their previous life. She doesn't care for money, but she mirrors her fathers in mannerisms and style; it's rare to see her dressed in anything less than a black suit and tie, even at 11. It would probably surprise nobody to see an image of Vincent wandering out of the doorway of an ancient Victorian manor, hand-in-hand with a ghost. It's unfortunate only for her that she was born in the modern day instead.

    2 - Your Hogwarts Letter (and how you got it)

    Zahra sat by a bench next to a window, her leg swinging gently below her, while her other was tucked underneath. She watched the sun rising, awake before her cousins, her aunt, her grandparents. It was the moment of calm before the storm, the one moment she had to herself before her family awoke and her space was no longer her own. As she stared out at the sunset she was alarmed to see what appeared to be an owl, flying towards her house. At first, she simply watched it fly, never having seen one in the city before, or at all, for that matter. She eyed it curiously, her alarm fading as it swooped out of sight. She relaxed back into her seat, standing up only when the sound of something tumbled through their chimney chute. She scrambled towards it, noticing a letter had lodged itself within the ashes of the previous fire. Confused, she bent over to gingerly pick the letter up, humming at the unfamiliar writing on the front, and the official looking seal at the back. It was addressed to her, which was odd, because she had no friends who would send her a letter and -- where had it come from to begin with? The owl had looked as if it were carrying something, clutched between its claws, but it couldn't have... Not being able to piece the puzzle together, she peeled open the letter's contents. "What's a Hogwarts?" She muttered, uninterested and thinking the letter to be spam. She tossed it in the bin, like she'd seen her aunt do whenever useless mail came. It was then that a knock came at the door. Her aunt, who had trudged down the stairs at this point - yawning all the while - answered. A woman with a pointed witch's hat stood outside their door, and her aunt's face paled visibly. Zahra thought the reaction odd, and the witch odder, for it was nowhere near Halloween, from what she knew. "Zahra, we need to discuss something, would you sit down in the living room and wait for me there?" Nodding her head, the young girl obediently made her way to the living room, sitting down on the couch. The woman wearing a witch-hat, and her aunt sat down in front of her. They exchanged a nervous look, before delivering the news that changed Zahra's life forever.
  24. Tolani Talbot

    2 - Your Hogwarts Letter (and how you got it)

    With most of the night spent tossing and turning in anticipation, Tolani finally decided that 6.23 in the morning was a socially acceptable time to wake up on a weekend. For all she knew, the owl carrying the letter she was expecting could've already come and gone. And that was one thing the witch did not want to miss. This was her moment and she would bask in it for as long as she possibly could. After all, her brother had milked the occasion dry when he'd been accepted to Hogwarts three years ago. After getting ready as quickly as possible, the witch took up by the living room window in the hopes of catching the owl coming from a distance. The skies were grey and cloudy, all the worse for spotting a potentially fair owl in but Tolly was determined. When called down for breakfast, she scarfed it as quickly as possible before returning to her stoop. Thankfully she hadn't missed it. Most of her day was spent like this, eagerly watching the window as she half-heartedly tried to read a book. Tolly's stomach gurgled, it was about time for her to get a snack to tide her until dinner. As usual, she was undecided when it came to choosing between a cauldron cake and a sandwich, they both had their pros and cons. But since she didn't have the luxury of time, she went for the cauldron cake. Opening it on the way back to the living room, the witch was met by her little sister clutching an ivory envelope. 'Tolly, it's for you, open it!' Just her luck that the one time she didn't rush, her letter had arrived. Huffing as she took the letter out her sister's hands, the little witch ripped it open skimming it as quick as she could. "Muuuuuuum! Daaaaad! Come look, I'm gonna be going to Hogwarts!"

    1 - Character Roll Call

    Character Name: Tolani Talbot Have you read and understood the rules of this board?:Yes Will you wait for your Roll Call post to be approved BEFORE posting your letter? Yes Character Face: Jourdan Dunn Character Masterlist Entry: Dunn, Jourdan - Tolani Talbot ----------- 200 words (minimum) on family history: Born to upper middle class pure-bloods, Mona Tesfay and Abel Talbot, Tolani was always destined to enjoy the nicer things in life. Tolani is the second of the three Talbot children, and it’s never a fact that escapes her attention. Her brother, despite only being three years her senior, is constantly touted as the heir to the family name. And whilst her parents are never neglectful, Tolani and her younger sister just never receive the same doting attention their brother does. The Talbots currently live in Bristol, on an estate that has been in the family for centuries. Whilst the Talbots are pure-blood and proud of their rich heritage, they were sure to integrate their children into local society amongst the Muggles. Tolani finds Muggles and their lack of magic interesting, especially their alternatives for things that are easily solved with the swish of a wand or a potion. Having been surrounded by Muggles and their way of life, the witch has taken to adopting a few of their norms. Her favourite thing being the notepad and pen, which she find way more convenient and less messy than a pot of ink, quill and parchment. Despite her integration, Tolani is excited to be fully immersing herself in the magical world amongst her peers. Existing familial relationships to on board characters: n/a 100 words (minimum) on personality: To compensate for being the middle child and feeling lost in the hubbub of family life, Tolani has always been bright and bubbly. She rarely shies from conversation and is almost always up for a challenge. Tolani has always been more fight than flight, with a decent moral compass that means she’d rather stand her ground than back down. It often gets her into trouble but her heart is (usually) in the right place. It’s these tendencies that make Tolani a great friend to have around and in your corner - she might steer people wrong but it's still with the best of intentions.
  27. Averia Gillian

    1 - Character Roll Call

    Character Name: Averia Gianina Gillian Have you read and understood the rules of this board?: Yes Will you wait for your Roll Call post to be approved BEFORE posting your letter? Yes Character Face: Kat Dennings Character Masterlist Entry: Dennings, Kat -- Gillian, Averia ----------- 200 words (minimum) on family history: William Gillian and Maria Campbell met at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry when they were in their third year of school. William, a Gryffindor, played the position of Chaser on his House Quidditch team; it was during a match versus Hufflepuff that he caught the eye of Maria who, though not a player herself, nevertheless was (and is) a great fan of Quidditch. A Slytherin, Maria was somewhat reluctant to admit, even to herself, that she had suddenly developed her first crush on someone...and a Gryffindor, no less. She decided to try to quash these feelings down inside, an attempt which was quite successful until their fifth year, when William was seriously injured during a game and was forced to give up playing the game he loved so much. In an attempt to get his mind off of this turn of events, William decided to join the Gobstones club, of which Maria was a member. It was here that the two officially met, and Maria's old feelings came bubbling up to the surface. As the year went on,William and Maria became very close friends, and, in their sixth year, officially began dating. Although they had a huge falling out in the middle of their seventh year--a row that had those around them wondering if that was the end of the unusual Gryffindor/Slytherin romance--they eventually patched things up. Six months after graduating from Hogwarts, the couple was married. A year later, their first child--a son named Jake--was born. Thirteen years passed, during which Jake successfully passed his first three years at Hogwarts, before Trisha discovered that she was pregnant again. Going to a Healer at St. Mungo’s, the Gillians were delighted to discover that they would be having a little girl, and on July 18, Averia Gianina Gilian was born, the second and last child that the couple would have. Gianna first showed signs of magic when she turned eight years old. While petting her family owl, Harold, she suddenly realized that Harold's feathers were turning purple with every stroke of her hand.Not able to understand what was going on, she carried Harold to where her father was and showed him what had happened. The adult was so happy that he went out and bought her a necklace which had a golden broomstick pendant on it. To this day, she still wears it. When she finally received her letter from Hogwarts at the age of 11, Averia had been told enough about the school from her parents and her brother to remain somewhat calm about it. Only when she had bought her first wand did the fact that she was going to study magic actually hit her, and from that point on, she impatiently waited for September 1 to arrive. It was with no amount of tears--just excited squeals of joy--that Averia finally boarded the Hogwarts Express and eagerly awaited her turn at Hogwarts. Existing familial relationships to on board characters: None 100 words (minimum) on personality: From the time she was born, Averia Gillian was a very curious child. From trying to grab at the mobile which hung above her crib to attempting to teethe on any wand which happened to be nearby (which was promptly taken away by one or the other parent before she could do any damage to herself or to something or someone else), she was constantly exploring her environment--a trait which became even more pronounced once she started walking. From playing with frogs and lizards to riding on her toy broom when she turned four, Averia never let a day go by when she wasn't busy doing one thing or another around the house...even getting into the occasional spot of mischief. Averia's penchant for looking for new things to do and explore has only increased as she's gotten older, the only difference being that she doesn't take any needless risks to health and safety like she did when she was smaller. Averia's interests hare many and varied. She is a big history buff, and also enjoys studying sharks and vampires; in fact, one of her biggest ambitions in life is to actually meet a real vampire and sit down for an interview and a cup of tea--or in the vampire's case, of blood.
