Boy do I suck [03 Apr 2004|02:37am]

[ mood | curious ]

So folks, after our lengthy lack of productivity (which is by and far my fault for not keeping things going), I've come to think of something:

Should I close the community, and keep the game within those few who might be interested? (Which prompts: Who's still interested?)


Dare I try to find some new players and recharge the ol' Sanctuary batteries?

Lemme know what you think.

Thanks [02 Sep 2003|05:31pm]

[ mood | better ]

I would like to thank all those that gave input to my last post for Jento (Retribution). Though it might not have sounded like it -- I did take all the suggestions to heart and in the end used them (Angie, Tami, Cass, and Gabby).

I would like to especially thank Tami and Cass who read and reread and edited 3 (and yes the last one was a little over the top) completely different drafts last night over a 6 hour period. I offically owe you both.

Finally to Gabby who helped me fix them and present one solid post. I know I can come off as a Jerk on IM occassionally. It's not meant to be so harsh. Really, I'm a nice person. In person. So if you feel I was slighting you, I am truly sorry.

I want to thank everyone for excepting me into this community.

Happy Birthday Harry and Rowling [31 Jul 2003|11:15pm]

[ mood | amused ]

It's the birthday of J(oanne) K(athleen) Rowling, born in Chipping Sodbury, England (1966). But her readers know today as Harry Potter's birthday. On Harry Potter's 11th birthday, he learns that he is a wizard. He is officially invited to leave his Muggle aunt and uncle and attend the special Hogwarts school for wizards. As a child, Rowling was short and stocky and wore very thick glasses, just like Harry Potter. She says she was very bossy, very bookish and terrible at school until she got older. When Rowling started writing Harry Potter, she was unemployed and divorced and living on public assistance in a tiny Edinburgh apartment with her infant daughter. She wrote during her daughter's naps, at a table in a café. She couldn't afford even a used typewriter. Then the Scottish Arts Council gave her a grant to finish the book. She did, and in the U.S. it was called Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (1998). It was a dramatic overnight success. She was instantly famous and Harry Potter became a household name. She experienced a type of fame usually reserved for politicians and rock stars. On book tours, she spoke at big sporting venues, with images of her face projected on big screens behind her. She gave press conferences. At age 35 she was the highest-earning woman in Britain, netting more than $30 million in 2000. Rowling has had a series of seven Harry Potter books in her head since 1995 and she plans to write them all. She has the plots all mapped out already. There is a book for each year that Harry spends at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. She said, "I want to finish these seven books and look back and think that whatever happened-however much this hurricane whirled around me-I stayed true to what I wanted to write. This is my Holy Grail: that when I finish writing book seven, I can say-hand on heart-I didn't change a thing. I wrote the story I meant to write." Rowling released Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix on June 21 this year. Within an hour, Barnes and Noble, the largest bookseller in the country, had sold 286,000 copies. That's 80 books per second. By the end of the day the book had sold five million copies total.

I was really looking forward to RPing with everyone but fulltime work + trying to get everything ready to move out + trying to get ready for school starting up, and all at once trying to spend quality time with my bf and my family + have enough alone time and sleep to be healthy is barrley gives me time for 1 life, let alone two... so I wont be joining right now.
Thanks everyone for offering to help me get used to it though.

Gabby and her strange ideas... [12 Jul 2003|09:35pm]

[ mood | accomplished ]

Everyone enjoying the chaos of the Ball?


In other news, I've gotten the idea of making a Who's Who of the characters in Sanct, simply to help everyone know who's in their Houses, and the kind of impressions to have with each other. What I will likely need help with are little bios about the characters in questions, and if you feel imaginative, opinions on other students by your character. IE - George Weasley's impression of Caio Ballesteros, and vice versa. Opinionated, dirty, hateful little ideas. Also, don't limit yourself to just the PCs you have -- if you have any NPCs that are friends with your character(s), feel free to do a write-up for them as well. I don't want anyone left in the dark

Feel free to email them to me (illicitfaith@aol.com), or reply to this post. If you know someone in the RP that isn't watching this community, direct them over to it.

Here is the listing I have thus far:

Emrys, Tybalt - Fifth Year
Hartley, Richard - Sixth Year
Johnson, Angelina - Fifth Year
Morrow, Tanzen Calloway - Fifth Year
Sakamoto, Kumiko - Fifth Year
Weasley, Fred - Fifth Year
Weasley, George - Fifth Year
Wood, Oliver - Seventh Year

Callahan, Siobhan - Fifth Year
Ducksworth, Lindsay - First Year
Gardner, Cooper - Sixth Year
Killian, Mandy - First Year
McDally, Liam - Fourth Year

Bradford, Alexandra - Fifth Year
Brandon, Kelby - Fifth Year
Krauser, Julia - Seventh Year
McDally, Aileen - Second Year
Nighteyes, Cassiel - Third Year
no Delaunay de Montreve, Delilah - Fourth Year
Sullivan, Rosalind - Third Year

Ballesteros, Caio - Fifth Year
de Monet, Christian - Sixth Year
Edwards, Grainne - Sixth Year
Miller, Aurelius - Sixth Year
Pritchett, Linden - First Year
Warrington, Randall - Fifth Year

If there is erroneous information, lemme know and I'll fix asap. If you have other pictures of your character(s) that you'd like to submit for the directory, also lemme know. HTMLing this is going to kill me... :o) See the sacrifices I do for the lot of you!?

And yes -- NO MORE FIFTH YEARS! WE HAVE TOO MANY! :o) That is all.

The Very Best Of Sanctuary [07 Apr 2003|10:25pm]

You people who aren't on the AIM chats don't know what you're missing out on. So, for our posterity, and so that you can feel envy, I give you some highlights from today when a bunch of those crazy Hogwarts students got together:

**Update** [01 Apr 2003|06:33pm]

[ mood | tired ]

::drags own corpse up to soapbox, splays it across::

Yay. So, I've whittled the cast page (found in the userinfo of sanctuaryhprp) down to the people who've been active and all. Strong urge to advertise for players, but considering there are a zillion HPRPGs in LJ, it would be silly. I would, however, like to have a larger player base, if anything to keep people from running to the same "clique" over and over.

George> The whole game's a clique, you silly girl!

... ::stuffs him away:: -Anyway- ... any ideas on that "issue" would be appreciated. I've also opened up canon characters to the general populace, so hopefully that might bring people in. If any of you would like to play a character from the books, just ask me and we'll work it out. Y'all get top priority.


Valentine's Ball! Yay! That's slowly becoming a reality, as we all progress our story lines that way. When it is time for the Ball, I'll make up several posts in the RP community to signify the different areas of the Great Hall. otherwise, it would get entirely too messy. Feel free to move amongst the posts as necessary.

I think that's it for now. Be sure to keep an eyeball here for more updates and such.

Exit stage right. [26 Feb 2003|12:39am]

I've been gone for so long I might as well make it official. -.o

I'll remove this LJ from the community. I'm not sure what I'll do with it at the moment (probably delete it eventually) but this is me letting you know that it's inactive. Feel free to unfriend it.

Charlotte didn't die or leave the school or anything. She just faded into the background. :-)

It's been a blast being part of this RPG. I wish you all the best and thanks for letting me take part.

New Blood [21 Feb 2003|06:14pm]

[ mood | Fresh ]

Why hello there everyone. The name's Walker and I just signed up for all the little shenanigans here. ^_^ Some of you may know me from AIM (walks02), and if ya don't consider yourself introduced. I can't wait to start roleplaying with the lot of ya, or moreso my character Kelby can't. Shandriz (Legend) is being extremely nice and making him a webpage, so soon you will all be able to read about him. Kelby's a fifth year Ravenclaw (5th Claw, as he states).

This account will only be for Kelby. My personal journal (updated less than more) can be found at walks. Let the RPing begin (for me)!

**Update!!** [21 Feb 2003|03:52pm]

Hola ladies and gents!

In an effort to get everything active over in sanctuaryhprp, I'll be fast-forwarding the game to the last week of January. If you'd like to, go right ahead and make your character's updates in your own journals, or in the community -- either way is chipper.

I'll be posting a summary of the time (roughly mid-November thru January), and an annoucement by Dumbledore at the last suppertime before term ends. Basically what's going to happen is that there will be a Valentine's Day Ball, which according to the calendar I'm been referencing to, is a Monday, so the Ball itself will be held on the Saturday before it, which would be Feb 12th. The occasion is semi-formal, so feel free to experiment. Yes, behold Gabby deviating from PoA drastically!

Remember that by then, we've had a few Quidditch games, a few Sirius Black scares, and Dementors waltzing around. Nevermind the whole Hagrid-teaching-stuff schtick. Generally, the atmosphere of Hogwarts is getting a little bleak, and the V-Day Ball is intended to raise morale and spirits a little.

Feel free to give your characters a little angst on a personal level. Also, if you feel you can handle it, you're more than allowed to submit a second (or in some cases, a third) character for approval to play. I figure, hell, very few new players, why not just litter the game with the same players having different characters? So, send away, dear ones, and keep an eye on the communities.

a brief introduction [09 Jan 2003|07:10am]

Hallo! I've just joined up and thought I'd introduce myself. You can call me Cass, but more importantly, my character is Alex. Alexandra Maeve Bradford, a fifth-year Ravenclaw. I'm not going to say much about her other than that (unless, of course, anyone wants to ask questions), as you'll hopefully get to know her soon! I've also given my bio to our wonderful moderator, so I think it'll be up on the website soon. This username is my character-specific journal (brand-new!). My real-life journal is roguebelle. I'm really looking forward to playing with everyone! So be nice to the newbie! ;) Talk to you all soon!

Y'know whut, screw Halloween! [03 Jan 2003|12:14am]

[ mood | hopeful ]

Okay kids, Tami said it best -- let's all just pretend the Feast went on, all was well and happy, and now we move along towards the first week of November. Yay November! We'll have Quidditch practices running AMOK (!), and all sorts of goodness.

Meanwhile... ::cough:: Yeah, the RPG's slowing down to something resembling that of a molasses-turtle thing. Do you, my ever so loyal and lovely players, have any ideas what should/could be done to bring life back into the ol' thing?
