Welcome to Hogwarts

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

She must’ve just fallen through the cracks of our tagging system. Here is her bio but she is currently taken.

Anonymous: Could I make rudolphus' fc Cillian Murphy? 

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.

What character are you applying for?: Lily Evans


Why did you choose to apply for this role?:

I usually play Slytherins so this is a new endeavor for me but honestly I’ve been doing Marauders along time and there are some very strange Lily Evans out there and most notably I’m not fond of a Lily that had a bad childhood (or her parents dying of something horrible like a terminal illness or drunk drivers) that usually drives her into the arms of Potter (because Lily would have friends and not go to someone she doesn’t think that highly of yet) or ones that are very prudish that she won’t do anything considerably fun and she’s always yelling at everyone. I am sick of seeing Lily’s who seem to talk about James all the time and that’s all she talks about with her friends and I wish to actually play Lily Evans as her own person and I feel like your bio shows that you see her the way she was actually meant to be seen. It’s a relief not to see her cast as Karen Gillan and for her not to be best friends with Marlene but instead someone new. I kind of convinced my friend to apply as Jennifer and I’ve never been more excited to play Lily Evans for the first time and hope I can get a chance here where all the bios are amazing and brilliant and just everything so far is so perfect, It be a shame to miss out on this RP.

What type of wand do they have? 10¼”, Willow, Unicorn Hair, swishy


Describe the character in your own words:

Lily is an ambitious and curious young women who appreciates a good laugh and she will never back down from her principles. She is known to be charming and she enjoys flirting and she doesn’t like to apologise for herself (unless she causes another to be upset without her meaning to.)  She finds bullies to be one of the most despicable people on the planet, most likely because she is so empathic to others pains and she is still constantly surprised by how grandiose the magical world is.
Give at least one headcanon about the character:
1. Lily Evans was not fond of being touched. It bothered her and she was not one that enjoyed simple and casual touches, she was popular with the boys in Hogwarts and yet if they would put their arm around her or if anyone brushed up against her she tried to quickly maintain a distance. She is constantly aware of how close people’s hands are to her and understands how far away to sit from someone so there was no one accidentally brushing up against her. She didn’t really like to talk about this though and the only two people who were aware of it was Severus and Jen and with Jen it never felt weird. She enjoys affections, when it’s on her terms.
2.The Evans didn’t have a lot of money but they got by with what they do, while Lily was able to embrace it, Petunia was embarrassed by it and Lily was always confused. Lily had to deal with bullies when she was younger because of the type of clothes she wore and having to take bagged lunch but it wasn’t as bad because she never took what they said to heart and she had a good group of friends that stood up for her and parents that supported her through everything- her sister didn’t have as much support from a group of friends and wished that she could be as normal as possible- something that Lily never strived for.
3. Her parents were very into music and while they didn’t have a lot of money they enjoyed getting records when they could and both Petunia and Lily loved to dance and then spend hours having family events like that.
4. In the muggle world she wasn’t big into sports but her father had taken her to some games and she enjoyed the atmosphere so when she learned about Quidditch she quickly knew that she didn’t like flying and being on a broom was a challenge she was okay with never overcoming- but the games were fun and when she became close to Jennifer, she’d often dress up for Gryffindor and make signs and buttons and everything she can think of, because it was fun.
5. Jen and Lily spend a good amount of their time collecting Post Cards, since neither of them travel this is a bit harder but if they know anyone who is traveling they ask to bring back postcards, usually the end up just getting ones in their town and they both have a nice collection in a shoe box that they bring with them to Hogwarts.

Things you aren’t willing to write: a character that is grieving

IC:

When is your birthday?

“My birthday is January 30th.”  

What is one of your best memories? Worst memory?

“I consider it to be a shame how my best and worst memory involve Seve- I mean Snape.. I am not use to calling him that yet, excuse me.” She frowned but then continued, looking away from the speaker.” I want to say that my best memory is Jen and me dressing up to go to Slug Club when I force her to be my date but honestly my best memory is when I was nine and I met Snape and he believed me and beyond that told me I wasn’t crazy and really opened me up to this world that he was sure of that I was going to be apart of too. It’s something special because even though I know my parents would have accepted me and loved me if I told them the strange things that had been happening to me… I was nervous because originally I had only told Tuney and she was very hesitant and wished me to stop because she thought we’d get in trouble but yeah, my best memory has to be about those days where we’d spend hours talking and I’d ask him all sorts of questions about what the magical world was like as we laid in my mothers garden.”
“My worst memory would have to be when Snape called me that nasty word in public because it meant a lot of things, first and foremost that our friendship didn’t mean anything to him and that’s very upsetting to have such a long standing one disintegrate because of his friends- honestly, I’m not fond of people who can be influenced that easily… and it also meant that on some fundamental level that he believed it as well which just- I mean that’s was the worst… and he did it in public! Where everyone can hear him and I spent so much time defending him- which is fine, I never mind to defend anyone in need, some of the boys are so mean to him… but for him to come around and say that to my face after he knows how hurtful that would be to me… I mean that’s my worst memory. I’ve never lost a friend before him.”

What does Amortentia smell like to you?

“I’ve actually brewed it a couple of times and to me it smells like the smell of smoke and leaves, most likely because of how exhilarating I find camping, the smell of my mother’s garden which I use to lay in for hours on end after helping around the house and the faint smell of freshly cut grass with the smell of something musky that I can’t quite pin.”

Where do your loyalties lie? Why?

“Hm, let me see- I’m a muggleborn female who doesn’t enjoy the torture of  anyone- which side could I be on?” She shook her head though and crossed her legs. ”My loyalties lie to whichever movement can do the most help and has the best values. I would not want to follow anything blindly but I do want to make sure that muggleborns can have a safe environment to strive in. It would be just brilliant to have a safe community for people who are already struggling to fit in here but apparently to some we’re nothing. I want equality and not oppression but if the side against the death eaters are as bad then I don’t want them either.”
Who are you most worried about dying in this war?
“I’m afraid for Snape. I’m afraid for Snape because even though we aren’t best friends anymore, it’s hard to not care for someone, it makes my skin crawl to think that he can stay with those future death eaters and I wouldn’t be able to see what happens to him and out of everyone I know he’s the one that seems like he’ll be on the front lines- I worry but that’s a secret, I wish I could just forget the whole thing.” Lily went from a very serious expression to a smile. “I just imagined Jennifer in the war and I can’t see it- I’m not worried about her dying at all, if she would even partake she’d never be one to lose- especially in a duel.”

What is your favorite class? Least favorite?

“My favorite class is Charms and my least favorite class is Care of Magical Creatures although unicorns are very majestic, I just can’t wrap my head around that class.”

Anonymous: I just have a question.You CLAIM to be canon, yet; you have multiple FC's messed up. Peter Pettigrew is white, not Indian. Marlene McKinnon is white, not black. I get HP doesn't have a lot of POC and that's alright. Don't change major canons colour to suit you. Seriously. 

We’ve answered several asks like this one before, so I’ll direct you here, here, and here.

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”.
