In regards to the things JK Rowling has said/tweeted in recent years, and where she chooses to align herself, I feel it's necessary to address such things here since this thread is obviously inspired from her works and would not exist without her:

I thank her for her contribution of Harry Potter to the world, but the thoughts, words, and opinions she has are NOT in alignment with my own personal beliefs. I believe that trans women are women, and trans men are men, and trans people are exactly who they say they are, and that none of these people take anything away from me or any other cisgender person out there.

In this castle we respect all lives and all identities, ALL THE TIME. There are no exceptions. Ever. Not only is it against Voltra TOS but it has always been, and will always be, one of my thread rules that discrimination of any kind is not allowed or tolerated; and that rule most definitely includes transphobia.

I fully understand and support ANY person who wishes to distance themselves from her words in any way they choose; ignoring her, blocking her, tossing out their Harry Potter memorabilia, avoiding anything to do with Harry Potter, etc. I will not ever hold that against a person, even if that means they must remove themselves from my threads, or even blocking me on Voltra, but I do wish to make my stance abundantly clear: I am not siding with her, nor would I ever choose to defend her, and I hope that - should you be one of those people who must distance themselves for their own well being - we may still remain on good terms.

I believe that Harry Potter is ours now and, as far as I'm concerned, how JKR chooses to align herself today absolutely does NOT represent what I believe to be the overall message of inclusivity and acceptance of the books. Nor do they represent my own personal beliefs. My love of these books and movies, that have helped not only myself but countless others through dark times in their life, remains. My support of the author does not.

If you have any questions or concerns about where I stand on this matter, or others, please always feel free to send me a ping or private message at any time to clarify. I love and respect every single one of my fellow 'students', no matter who they are, how they identify, or who they love.

If you've already been sorted into house feel free to post and let us know which House you're in! If you've not been sorted into a House yet step right up and let the Sorting Hat tell you where you belong!

The Sorting Hat quiz is a replica of the quiz you would take on Pottermore, without all the hassle of signing up! Use this quiz to find out which Hogwarts House you'll be joining!

Please note: I do not do split Houses! Sorry for any trouble!

House Points, just like in the books, will be awarded to students who do good deeds, answer questions correctly in class, win a game, etc. They can also be taken away over rule-breaking and bad behavior, so be careful!

Normally House Points would be awarded to the entire House at once, but here we are going to do things a little differently. Instead points will be given to each student individually and then added to the House total. We are going to do this so House Points can add up and be turned in for rewards that can only be granted to individuals, but as usual at the end of the collecting period the House Cup will be awarded to the House with the most points in the end!

Disclaimer: The only one who can officially add or deduct points from you/your House is me: Anarchist Beauty.

10 xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx 30 xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx 30 xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx 70

    What are House Points?
    Special award points that can be added or deducted depending on behavior.
    Why are they not given to the whole house?
    Because offering the same reward to an entire House could bankrupt me in one round. Using a student-by-student basis also helps eliminate those students who would rest on their Housemates doing all the work and still reaping the same rewards!
    How do we earn House Points?
    There will be games to play that award House Points in addition to their rewards, along with randomly given out points for any manner of things.
    Is there a cap on how many Points we can earn?
    Nope! You can hoard all the Points to like and then spend them all in one fell swoop should you choose! (This rule subject to possible change or removal in the future.)
    When can we turn in our House Points?
    Whenever you want, as long as you have enough for the rewards!
    How will we know how many House Points we have?
    There is a viewable Google Sheet to keep track of everyone's points! View the Sheet here!
