The year is 1976 and the Marauders are in their sixth year at Hogwarts. Everything is in turmoil as Lord Voldemort rises in power. Though the castle is safe from the Dark Lord, the battle between Death Eaters and those who resist them exists even inside its walls. While the students are studying their spells, war wages all across Europe. Soldiers are dying and families are being torn apart. Soon, the students of Hogwarts will join them. Which position will you choose?
So it goes.
In Game Date: October 31, 1976
With a heavy heart, we are announcing the closing of So It Goes. It’s been a wonderful two months, but with activity down and school year beginning, we just don’t feel this roleplay will continue to thrive. We’d like to thank all the members we’ve ever had for considering us and for their dedication to this roleplay. We consider this such a successful venture because of all the diversity and creativity you guys brought to the table.
Feel free to use the next few days to wrap up any threads if you’d like, but we ask that you stop roleplaying as soon as that’s done.
Thank you! We always appreciate positive comments about our faceclaims because we put so much effort into picking them. Of course, if anyone would like to change one to promote more diversity, we are always open to that.
We look forward to seeing your application!
Sure! The event will now end September 4 at 11:59pm.
She must’ve just fallen through the cracks of our tagging system. Here is her bio but she is currently taken.
Unfortunately, we wouldn’t accept that FC change. It is against our rules to change POC fcs to white fc because we believe that is white washing. Cillian Murphy is also much too old to play a teenage Rodolphus.
Congratulations Em! You have been accepted for the role of Lily Evans. We’re glad to have you back and still love your take on Lily.We accept for Lily to be in the Charms and Gobstones Clubs.Please send us an account within the next 24 hours with the ask and submit boxes open.
Welcome to Hogwarts! We look forward to roleplaying with you.
First off, it would not be racist to change a canonically white character into someone POC. It’s just not. There’s already a lot of representation for caucasian people, unlike for minority groups.
Second of all, no one whose race we’ve changed has been canonically white. Peter Pettigrew’s race was never explicitly stated, people just assume he was white. As for Marlene, she may have been played by a blonde and white extra in the movies but her race was never mentioned in the books. Literally, all we know about her in the books is that she was killed alongside her entire family. Nothing else. So, she could be an alien from mars as far as we known.
We don’t follow movie canon, we follow book canon for the most part. We’ve bent it a little to allow for some characters to be in Hogwarts at the same time as the Marauders. Yet, you haven’t complained about how we’ve aged them down, which is actually a change in canon, but about some presumed headcanons.
And lastly, a lack of POC is never “alright”.
