Hi everybody! Sorry about my absence, now my internet has been temporarly fixed, because we were given free dial-up (that doesn't work on my computer, grumble grumble), but the point is, I have the internet again!

We have two new members, :

lecharmediscret: Ravenclaw
gryffind0r23: Gryffindor

Welcome to hogwarts_alive guys!

Soon i'll be posting a poll in the main comm about what to do next in terms of contests, house cups, sorting, etc, so I can see what you guys want.

1. Name: Kelly aka Gryffind0r23
2. Age:18
3. Have you read all of the books? What do you like about them, and what don't you like?
Yes. I love the action in each book. There wasn't a boring page in the entire series. Everything somehow ties together in the end, and you end up slapping yourself saying, "Gee, I should have known. How could I have forgotten about that?" by far, my favorite book would have to be HBP. I love how everything is starting to fall together for Harry's final journey in search of the horcruxes and the final battle with Voldemort. I don't like the fact that some of the main, beloved characters were killed off, but it is needed in this kind of story. Another irksome constituent is Percy. I dont like the fact that he abandoned his family and Harry in a time of crisis just to get farther up in rank at the ministry. And on top of that when he and Fudge were righted in their beliefs, he never apologized.
4. Who is your favorite character?
There's a 3 way tie between Harry, Sirius, and Dumbledore. First of all, I love Harry just because he's the main character. He overcomes many obstacles and is a stronger person for doing so. Many family members or close acquaintances are taken away from him, but he uses those situations as cornerstones to build his caring, daring, and loyal demeanor. Next, Sirius is the all-around good guy with a wild side that everyone falls in love with. He links Harry to his parents. Harry considers him to be a father-figure, friend, and brother all-in-one. Finally, Dumbledore is like the guru we look up to in times of need. He is always there for Harry, even if it takes up time out of his schedule or causes him distress. He's a major guide in Harry's growth as a man and as a character.
5. Who is your least favorite character?
Snape. Every time I read about Snape, I can't help but feel hatred. He used his snide remarks and evil ways against James, Sirius, Lupin, and Peter and continues to use them against Harry, Ron, and Hermione. He may insist he is on the good side, but I'll have to disagree with Dumbledore and say he's two-timing each side.
6. What do you think are the defining characteristics or the four houses? Please include an answer for each house.
Gryffindor: Bravery, loyalty, charisma. Gryffindor's will go out and get what they want, even if obstacles stand in their way. They're persistant, and act before they think.
Slytherin: The "ME" factor. "I want to make a name FOR MYSELF." Slytherin's are only out for themselves. They will step on anyone in the process of getting to the top. They tend to be prejudiced.
Hufflepuff: Kindness, an all-around good person that is well put together. Hufflepuff's will drop anything to help another.
Ravenclaw: Intelligence. Book smarts & common sense. Ravenclaw's are very successful in whatever they do. They think before they act.
7. What characteristics of each house do you think refects you the most? Please include an answer for each house.
Gryffindor: I am by no means the bravest of all, but I will go out and get what I want, if I want it. Throw an adventure at me and I'll take it; I'll explore anything new. My family and friends keep me going, and I stick by their sides through any situation.
Slytherin: Occasionally, I'd like to have all the glory if I;ve accomplished something.
Hufflepuff: Kindness; I love helping others.
Ravenclaw: I have book smarts and achieve high marks in my studies.
8. The sorting hat will always give you a choice. Which house do you think is least suited to you?
Honestly, Gryffindor. The house seems to be a group of well-rounded, loyal people that are willing to be adventurous and conquer anything in their path.
9. If you could have a magical pet, what would it be?
Crookshanks- a cat, part kneazle. Crookshanks is an intelligent cat and can usually read people (or animals) better than the Trio can. Such was the case with Scabbers.
10. What is your dream job? What would you accomplish if you had this job?
Anything in the field of Biology. I would like to find or help to find a cure for cancer since I've known many people in my life that had, or died from cancer.
11. Do you think you are a thinker or a feeler?
I'm a feeler. I tend to go by what my gut feeling says.
12. What are your top 5 positive characteristics?
1. Caring
2. Loyal
3. Helpful
4. Polite
5. Hard working
13. What are your top 5 negative characteristics?
1. Temper when angry
Can't think of any more.
14. What do you think you can contribute to this community?
I feel I can bring my knowledge of the Harry Potter series to this forum to help those with questions better understand the plot & characters, and aid in guesswork for the final book.

Welcome to sorting_alive! I'm very sorry about all the confusion, and i'll attempt to sort it out here.

To apply, all you need to do is join sorting_alive, and post your application. Please do not join hogwarts_alive just yet. Once you are sorted, you can join hogwarts_alive and your common room. hogwarts_alive is the place where people from every house can get to know each other, otherwise they'd just know people from their own house!

I'm setting up a questions community (see "questions" on the right), so if you have any more questions, post them there, and i'll reply as soon as I can.

Also - if you've been sorted, you may now sort new applications. Just comment on what house you think they belong in, but make sure you say why. Remember, you can squib, but only on the basis of them not having enough canon knowledge, house-bashing, or being a troll.

I'm sorry that everything is so unorganised at the moment, but it'll all get fixed soon, I promise!

Here's my application (again *g*) even though I've already been sorted into Ravenclaw... I'm redoing this so as to keep with the rules. That and I don't want to confuse people due to my earlier mistake. :-)
