Did you know?

First names were most often used by childhood or school friends. If the friendship was made after school age, first names would only really be used by women. Men were far more likely to refer to their friends by their surnames, a mark of familiarity. — Documentation

WANTED:

Emilia Wright for Jude Wright. Casually alienating offspring since 18882.
Separating was also not a great idea, though they weren't doing great at staying together anyway. If she were to volunteer to be the human sacrifice.. well... Hogsmeade had plenty of debutantes anyway...

Barnabas Skeeter in CYOA: Group D

IC Quidditch Tryouts 1888
#1
IC Quidditch Tryouts ’88

Once again, tryouts for the House Quidditch Teams will be carried out via thread!  OOC, tryouts will all be held from Wednesday, August 29th to Sunday, September 9th, however IC they will be as follows:
  • GRYFFINDOR: Friday, September 7th, evening [Live!]
  • HUFFLEPUFF: Saturday, September 8th, morning [Live!]
  • RAVENCLAW: Saturday, September 8th, afternoon [Live!]
  • SLYTHERIN: Sunday, September 9th, morning [Live!]
All threads will be started by the team captain in question, however will be judged using a modified die roll system similar to that for duels and for the British National Tryouts. On September 9th after dinner, the rosters will be posted on the school bulletin board. Students will not only need to beat their competition, but the minimum score set for their position by the staff team, in order to gain the spot. It sounds a lot more intense than it actually is xD

For anyone concerned or curious here is an example from back when Castor Allaway was white xD

As of today, all positions, regardless of vacation date, require tryouts to claim them. Any position vacant after tryouts will be made available in the usual fashion, though you will not be able to take up a position you tried (and failed) to get with the same character. Please note that female beaters and first year students may only claim posts through tryouts.  Currently, the available positions are:

GRYFFINDOR:
Chaser II
Beater II
Keeper
Seeker

HUFFLEPUFF:
Chaser II
Chaser III
Beater I
Beater II

RAVENCLAW:
Chaser III
Keeper

SLYTHERIN:
Chaser II
Chaser III
Keeper

The list will be updated accordingly should more slots become available after the September Activity Check.

Please be advised: We do not allow players to hold more than one chaser/beater position on the same team. We also discourage, but don’t forbid, players holding more than one keeper or seeker.

Please post below with the following form from the appropriate account. Female students are required to get consent of a guardian; see below for further details. Students of any year are invited to sign up, however their age will factor into their modifier—a second year’s chance will not be as strong as that of a seventh year. They must also be sorted prior to signing up.

Students currently holding a position are not required to try out. Those who do so, or who try out for a different position on their team, forfeit their right to their current spot. You may try out for multiple positions, though this will require multiple forms and multiple posts in the tryout thread.

Signups close at 11:59pm EST on September 7th. You’re eligible to post in your tryout thread as soon as it’s available and I’ve “liked” your post here!

If you're not sure but have a reasonably detailed description in your application, just leave a link in the build field! These are more guidelines than absolutes, so don’t be afraid to hit me up with any questions.

I PLAY A FEMALE
Female characters are asked to include the following at the bottom of their registration. Since parental consent is required IC, we require that you make the necessary arrangements OOC as well.

Code:
[i]Consent has been acquired from [IC Guardian], played by [Player]. I am aware that this consent can be withdrawn at any time, and that my character’s behaviour will also be taken into account as far as their continued participation on the team is concerned.[/i]


I PLAY AN INCOMING FIRST YEAR
As in years past, first years will be invited to try out this year!  Players of first years should, however, note that they will be at a fairly substantial disadvantage, and that only four first years, at maximum, will be permitted to play this season. Please be aware that you may not sign up or try out if you are not yet sorted, so please come back on September 1st to drop off your form :)



PMs on this account will not be checked.
Instead, please contact Ursula Black, Aldous Crouch, Cassius Lestrange, Elias Grimstone, Elladora Black, or Elsie Beauregard with any questions, issues, or concerns.
