• WELCOME TO HOGWARTS •

To attend the Sorting Ceremony, create a new thread in this forum (not the Pensieves) with your student's First and Last Name as the subject title (middle is optional), and fill out the sorting ceremony sheet below. Sorting Ceremonies posted in the Pensieves will be ignored. Post them in the main Sorting Ceremony forum Here.

REMINDERS: Please do not create:

1. a student with special abilities, aside from being a witch or wizard.

2. a student with emotional imbalances, or psychological disorders (danger to themselves/others).

3. Physical disabilities without staff permission. Physical disabilities caused by non-magic can be fixed in a heartbeat, anyways.

4. a student that is related to any canon character.

5. *NEW* a student with a history that is too over the top/borderline ridiculous. Understand that most students from the series come from ordinary wizarding backgrounds; not every history has to be a movie.

6. The application should be written in third person. He/she, rather than I/me.

As you step into the Great Hall, you notice a tattered hat lying leisurely upon a rigid wooden stool. You are instructed to don the hat with the company of your fellow first years. Slowly and cautiously, you approach a rather mature man dressed in darkened robes, with a rather lengthy scroll clutched between his pallid fingers. You realize at once that this must be Professor Pogreby, the Deputy Headmaster that you had been told about during your trip on the Hogwarts Express. After he calls out your name, you step forwards onto a wooden platform and take a seat upon the stool. Lifting the hat onto your head, you close your eyes in order to savor the feeling you know will only occur once during your journey at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.


"Oh, you may not think I'm pretty,
But don't judge on what you see,
I'll eat myself if you can find
A smarter hat than me.
You can keep your bowlers black,
Your top hats sleek and tall,
For I'm the Hogwarts Sorting Hat
And I can cap them all.
There's nothing hidden in your head
The Sorting Hat can't see,
So try me on and I will tell you
Where you ought to be.
You might belong in Gryffindor,
Where dwell the brave at heart,
Their daring, nerve, and chivalry
Set Gryffindors apart;
You might belong in Hufflepuff,
Where they are just and loyal,
Those patient Hufflepuffs are true,
And unafraid of toil;
Or yet in wise old Ravenclaw,
If you've a ready mind,
Where those of wit and learning,
Will always find their kind;
Or perhaps in Slytherin,
You'll make your real friends,
Those cunning folk use any means
To achieve their ends;
So put me on! Don't be afraid!
And don't get in a flap!
You're in safe hands (though I have none)
For I'm a Thinking Cap!"
