Welcome to Potter’s Army

Welcome to Potter's Army

We have been a Harry Potter Roleplaying site since 2007. If you're an old member we hope you come check out the discord link provided below. And if you're looking for a new roleplaying site, well, we're a little inactive. But every once and a while nostalgia sets in and a few of our alumni members will revisit the old stomping grounds and post together. Remember to stay safe out there. And please feel free to drop a line whenever!

What’s Happening?
Since every few months or so a few of our old members get the inspiration to revisit their old stomping grounds we have decided to keep PA open as a place to revisit old threads and start new ones devoid of any serious overarching plot or setting. Take this time to start any of those really weird threads you never got to make with old friends and make them now! Just remember to come say hello in the chatbox below or in the discord. Links have been provided in the "Comings and Goings" forum as well as the welcome widget above.

Very pretty in appearance, her ink stained fingers often dotted with burn marks are a pointed show of her life. She is often seen with an ink smudge on her nose, and dried ink on the tips of her hair, or even soot smudges from multiple explosions in her house.



------------------------------------------------------------
PERSONALITY
------------------------------------------------------------


    GOOD TRAITS: 
    Writing – Writing is Micki's passion. Ever since she was a little girl, Micki read works of art, like Shakespeare, Merlin, and even read all of the Lockhart books (Though she wasn't the biggest fan, her motto is to never judge a book by it's cover, especially when the cover has a man smiling on it). She dabbles mostly in fiction, but a more serious fiction, and tends to put a bit of a real life twist to it, adding in details from people she knows and meets, newspaper articles, and real life events into her books.

    Reading – It's kind of a given that someone like Micki would like to read. Ex-Ravenclaw suggests the ability to learn, and with a family like hers, it's not wonder she would like the quiet life of a book in hand. Spending a lot of time with her father after her parents went their separate ways, meant that Micki was much more motivated to learn and have a growing love for books.

    Sneaky – When you make a living writing, and throwing bits of real life into your work, sometimes you have to be a bit sneaky, and just like the famous Rita Skeeter and her Quick-Quotes Quill, Micki has her own traits that helps her to get the facts that she can twist into her books without suspicion of other people actually realizing it's their story she's putting in her plots.

    Cooking – While some people think it's a silly thing to learn, one of Micki's most favorite things to do is cook. And not just anything, she can whip together the most delicate of dishes, hot and spicy one second, to cooling and refreshing the next, a pinch of magic never hurts of course. Her magical dishes are only ever tasted by her closest of friends however.

    BAD TRAITS:
    Eavesdropper – Micki can't help but eavesdrop on every conversation she hears, trying to pick out the story, and making her own impressions of what goes on. She loves to listen to conversations and even follow along the story if she can, asking around secretly, or simply watch from afar.

    Liar – If Micki is caught somewhere she isn't supposed to be, or even just as simply as a friendly conversation, Micki has an odd impulse to lie. While her writing is based only on the facts of what she hears, she has a very difficult time telling the straight truth in person.

    Messy – Micki can never keep a room clean. Her house is almost always alarmingly dirty, with clothes thrown every which way, dishes left sitting on tabletops, candy wrappers and fast food wrappers litter her desk, as well as bits of paper she's used to outline plots of her books and broken bits of pencils and waste all litter her entire house.

    CHARACTER LIKES:
    Writing – A skill and a love, she writes anything she can. If she's not eavesdropping on someone's conversation, she's writing up a new story, adding a new plot twist to a story she heard on the street, or simply doing a creative writing story to keep her muse alive.

    Cooking – While a very messy person, Micki loves to cook, a hint of this a dash of that, a twist of a spell she made up on the spot. Sometimes she causes explosions in her kitchens that leave the neighbors wondering what is going on, sometimes her spells add just the right dash of spice that the dish needed to simply pop.

    Shakespeare – Micki is a Shakespeare fan to extremes. She is often caught talking in Shakespearean tongues, and often doesn't care. She will sit and recite sonnets from memory, or simply quote him in everyday speech.

    Peanut butter and chocolate – If it has peanut butter and chocolate, Micki loves it. She is often seen snacking on candy, or mixing up a new dish that has something to do with peanut butter and chocolate.

    Strange plants – While Micki doesn't exactly garden, she often will get an odd impulse to plant something magical in her yard, which usually starts to blossom and grow out of control for quite some time until she decides to harvest it, or get rid of it, which can usually take some time for her to even consider.


    CHARACTER DISLIKES:
    Being Caught – When eavesdropping on a conversation, the best thing is to go unnoticed, so when she gets a caught by someone who she was listening in on, she's not exactly happy, and often goes for the insane bit, and starts quoting Shakespeare, or simply trying to make herself seem a bit crazy.

    Arguing – If there is one thing Micki hates, it's getting into arguments with people. She would rather just alter her self image to look insane, than deal with someone who has an opposing point of view.

    Dirty-minded people – People who think that everything is a sex joke, when confronted by a person who is like this, Micki often does the sensible thing.. and walks away.

    GOALS: 
    To become a rich and successful author.

    QUIRKS: 
    Will randomly speak in Shakespearean.
    Loves Peanut Butter and chocolate to an unhealthy degree.

    BOGGART:
    Dying alone and poor.

    PATRONUS:
    Selling her first book, a tale of a girl who died in a gruesome manner.

    DEMENTOR:
    Graduating Hogwarts (Honestly, it's a lot easier to eavesdrop when no one is paying attention to you).

    VERITASERUM:
    She actually kind of hates people, but she spends time outside and around people in order to get new story ideas.

    MIRROR OF ERISED:
    Become rich, powerful, blah blah blah, she loves writing and wants people to know who she is.

    PERSONALITY:
    Micki is a strange personality. She loves writing and cooking, and reading. She is obsessed with Shakespeare, and absolutely detests people, especially rude and immature people who can't hear one thing without thinking of a sexual reference to go with it. She enjoys her solitude with music and Shakespearean verses. But she also enjoys going out on the street, eavesdropping on people in order to write into her fictitious novels a part of their life that they will never even realize they inspired.

------------------------------------------------------------
CHARACTER HISTORY
------------------------------------------------------------


    Early Years: Micki had a pretty crazy childhood. She spent very little time paying any attention to her family, and mostly spent time with her sister Maggs, who she loved dearly, and they would play the day away, imagining and exploring and overall enjoying each others company. When Micki was about ten years old, her parents separated, Micki went to stay with her father, who was a kind, gentle man who was very scholarly and loved books. This change in her lifestyle drastically influenced Micki as she went from spending all her time with her sister, to all her time with her father, and quickly formed a very close relationship with him.

    Hogwarts Years: Micki was a Ravenclaw in school thanks to the influence her father had upon her in her years leading up to when she started school. She grew to love learning new things, and grew increasingly obsessed with Shakespeare and his stories. She also became increasingly interested in writing, and found that the lives of Hogwarts students were extremely fascinating, and she soon started to use the stories she heard in the hallways as a prompt for her writing.

    During Hogwarts her parents tried on and off to get back together, but when Micki was entering her seventh year, they both stopped completely and at the same time, Micki completed her first novel. She fought hard to get it published and soon had the rights and started to make money off of her first novel.

    Adulthood:After Hogwarts, Micki had made enough from her first novel to be able to afford her own small house in a small forgotten Muggle neighborhood, just outside of London. Her loud music, bangs from her failed cooking spells, or overall extended periods of silence, followed by an odd increase in owl activity in the area goes completely disregarded in the silent road she works on, especially when Micki disappears for days on end, usually resulting in an overgrown yard and odd plants no one has seen before sprouting up in her lawn. They all take it at face value and understand that Micki is just an odd person.

Absolutely love the sound of her Chase, great looking character.

Slight hitch though; Selene, Zoe and Zara are each inactive. Generally we try to encourage people to revive old characters rather than introduce new ones. Anything you want us to do about them? Deactivate them? Offer them for adoption? Or will you bring them back to life?

I know it's an old rule, but I made it, so I stick by it. If other admins disagree with me, by power of numbers I'll be happy to accept it regardless of the other characters' activity.

Just taken a peak, turns out the system was abandoned awhile back - it wasn't something I really dealt with, so I didn't notice.

So, I can have them deactivated if you like?

I have one thing to add to the app.

For personality balance reasons, may I suggest that you make give her the same number of good/bad traits and likes/dislikes? She has more of the formers than the latters and it makes her seem a little uneven.

Doesn't matter too much, as they're not really mega good or bad traits. If some of your traits up there were like "is the most powerful witch at everything lol" then "Doesn't like yellow" I might agree with you Wink

Rightio, I'll do that then accept this
