Did you know?

The Language of the Flowers was a popular method to express feelings where words might be improper, but did you know other means of doing so? Some ladies used their parasols, as well as their fans, gloves, and hankies to flirt with a gentleman (or alternatively, tell them to shove it!). — Bree

WANTED:

Ester Montgomery for Thomas Montgomery. The one that got away (with the pornographer...)
This boy, then. He wasn't new. Wasn't one of the worst people in the common room, those rotten rich boys - like Mr. Jailkeeper - who could not fathom a world beyond their own farts. Was a good working class lad, so he'd heard. Had a bit of a weird looking face, and a bit of a weird thing for preaching. Still.

SOME NOTES:

—Third years and higher are allowed to go on Hogsmeade visits. Students who have written permission from their parents/guardians are allowed to visit their families in Hogsmeade if there is a good reason, such as a family emergency, a wedding, or a funeral. For more information on leaving school grounds, click here.

—Since it was considered improper for young ladies to walk about without chaperons, Hogwarts provides chaperons through teachers and Head of Houses as well as other staff members during Hogsmeade visits. They are assigned to a location and whomever wants to go to that particular location will be escorted there in a group. Seeing as the groups could be rather large, it would be easy to escape from the chaperon's view, though is greatly frowned upon and could result in a detention.

—O.W.L.s are tests taken by all fifth years. N.E.W.T.s are tests taken by all seventh years. Students not enrolled in the subject writing on a given day will have that day free of classes, to study for other subjects.

—Quidditch game outcomes (unplayed) are determined by die rolls, coin flips, and player ability.  

—Charming uses house points to determine the winner of the House Cup.

—To apply for a student staff position, please fill out this form and PM it to a staff member, who will then post it up for scoring in the staff forum.  For student quidditch positions, please post in maintenance to claim.

Quidditch Captains are decided based on seniority, but must be in at least fifth year. Quidditch players during this time period were typically male, due to the rough nature of the sport. To take a vacant spot, post in maintenance. Be aware that female beaters and all first years can join the team via IC tryout only. Hogwarts does not have second string quidditch teams.

Student Staff Vacancies

Sometimes, student staff positions won't be filled during "prefect season" in the summer, or will become vacant via deactivations throughout the school year. Where this is the case, the staff team will follow a more streamlined process to get characters into these roles. To qualify, your character must:

  • Be the correct sex, house, and year for the vacancy.
  • Already be a prefect, if applying for Head Boy or Head Girl*.
  • Have the support of their Head of House, House Matron, or Phineas Black before applying.
  • Have 5 posts if applying within a month of creation, or 10 posts if applying a month or more after creation
If interested, please submit the following form to Aldous Crouch. Staff will review submitted applications during the first full weekend of the month as part of our Activity Check duties.

* We recognize that Head Boy and Head Girl do not need to be prefects, and allow for this during prefect season. However, such characters are rare, and so this will only be considered during  prefect season unless an Against the Odds is used.
