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.

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


    Early Years: During his primary years, he was oblivious to the wizarding world and only wanted to be a super athlete who was a professional in any sport he has ever came in contact with. This dream still haunts his mind as he occassionally drifts off into that euphoria.
    His main inspiration and reason to live was his extraordinary father. His father and him did everything together and for odd reasons could finish each others sentences and could make the same jokes. Tim was the name of his father and he always wanted to be like him, even currently. Martha was his mother and he didn't really spend to much time hwith her considering they had nothing alike and still do. His mother is a topic that he usually leaves out of topics about his family.
    At Bobby's 10th birthday, his father and him were driving in his small car from his birthday dinner. It was late at night and they were both exhasted. Despite their exhastion, they were laughing and having the best of times. Yet, a drunk driver on the road swerved into them as the innocently cracked jokes. The driver drove a large truck and their small car was crushed on impact. Bigwig's father's head slammed through the windshield and broke his head and neck on the crash, flying through the window and hitting the ground at such force, he was forsurely dead but managed to break into a few spasms. Bobby was just jolted and ran out of the car at such speed, he was like a dark shadow in the night. Kneeling by his father who lay their motionless now, he watched as the humorous dark eyes of his father lost their light and he had died before him. Bobby was horrified and after many moments of silence and then sudden tears, his glazed his turned to the driver of the truck who was unconcious yet alive and as if magic, the driver began to splutter out blood and choke. After suffering for a long time, the ambulance finally came and the silent spell ceased. The driver was covered in blood and he was sent to the hospital immediantly while Bobby's father was silently driven away by a slow, plodding ambulance.
    Once Bobby's mother heard of the sad news, she fell into deep depression and completely abandoned Bobby. Thsi was like that for a few months and then she went mad. Taking the money that his family has been given after his father's death, she waste all the money on drugs. This was wasting their whole supply of money and she ended up broke. After the money ran dry, she began to abuse Bobby to feel better since her drugs were gone. Soon after she began to abuse him, he received the letter to Hogwarts and was sent away at once. He hasn't seen his mother since then and doesn't know if she is alive or in jail.

    Hogwarts Years: This is Bigwig's second year and his first was pretty eventful. He managed to hang out with a ton of other first years last year but he has never been able to have friends due to his crude sense of humor that others have distinguished as muggle type. He knows of the other students dislike to him but he tries to prove he is worthy by pulling pranks on professors, ending up with loads of laughs and detention. He managed to pass every class by a hair and is determined his next years to do better even though his dislike for the wizarding world grows stronger. He never was interested in activities Hogwarts offered, especially Quidditch which he personally finds that any random Joe can do even though you don't have to be athletic at all do participate in. He has yet to understand the concept that it is hard work and takes skill to play the wizard game but his stubborn and ignroant attitude will most likely all him to never want to find otherwise.

    Adulthood: None.

BEHIND THE CHARACTER
------------------------------------------------------------


    YOUR NAME: (I prefer not to use actual names on websites due to my privledge of privacy.)
    You can call me Bigwig though because I do love that name dearly...

    RP EXPERIENCE: About three years of RPing on not very serious forums.

    HOW YOU FOUND US: Forumotion.com

    OTHER CHARACTERS: None.

    PURPOSE OF CHARACTER: Well, I have always wanted to RP in a Harry Potter forum and this is a spelendid chance for me I think. I just want to RP and have fun, ultimately I pressume.

    RP SAMPLE:
    Spoiler:
    (I am going to be lazy on this, sorry but I am tuckered out from so much typing! DX)
    *Bobby stepped up to Platform 9 and 3/4, adjusting his small duffel bad of his clothes, books, wands and other school essentials. Swallowing a hard lump that had formed in his throat due to the unrelenting nerves, he hoped that this was all a mistake. He shall wake up and his father shall be by his side and he shall no nothing of this wizard stuff. Mother eagerly sent me off so she could get the horrid house to herself. That incompetent witch! Wait, where I am going, witches are pressumed to be students. I am living in a living nightmare! Dismissing those dark thoughts, he carfully inspected the wall and wondered how he shall manage to get through this solid cinderblock wall. As he touched the wall in a suspicious manor, a busy student with a trolley and books and trunks strolled over in a lathargic manor. Bobby stepped back, bewildered by this odd looking being. The student huffed in irritation and broke into a quick jog to the wall. They were going to run full force into the wall! "Stop!", Bobby shouted but the student plowed right into the wall, dispersing into the hard cinderblocks. So that is how I get through this blasted wall! Thinking that, spectators near by turned to him in an alarmed manor as he shouted across the station a couple moments ago. The spectators, shook their heads and gave him a wide berth as they moved swiftly to their trains, possibly thinking that Bobby had a mental disorder or such.

    Shaking his head in dissapointment, he walked at a tense pace to where to studen began to suicide at the wall. Clutching Tim JR., his toad he found not to long ago, closing his eyes and clenching his teeth, he sprinted to the cinderblock wall in a blur and was sent through it. As he felt himself in a new atmophere, he timidly opened a dark eye and soon both of his eyes flew open in amazement as their stood a massive steam engine.

    Scanning the new surroundings, there were many students alike the one with the trolley he informally met earlier. Strange wizards and witches with jet black cloaks turned to him in a questioning manor as he seemed like a muggle who stepped through the wall. Sighing and shuffling his feet in anxiety, he heard the train whistle and that sent him into a mad dash to the door where a few stragglers were hugging parents and bidding them farewell. Emotion flooded his eyes as one particular boy received a kiss from one father with soft eyes that seemed to brim with tears. Turning away, he boarded the train to his new school and received bewildered and despite full glares from other students as he boarded. Locating an empty chamber, he closed the door and sat alone, bored and wanting some people to surround him so he could be his outgoing self instead of this hermit. Leaning his head against the window, he clutched Tim Jr. in his hands and watched as the scenery spun before him in a whirlwind of movement.*

First, welcome to PA!

Overall, I like Bobby. I think you've constructed him well, but I do have a couple questions. The average height for a 13 year old boy is roughly 5'. For Bobby to be that much larger at his young age suggests there is something else going on for him medically/genetically. He should still be growing during his teen years, in which case, he could be 7' or better by the time he's 17, and that makes him out of the norm for muggles and not by a little bit. Which suggest to me that there is some other genetic component going on for him? Not sure having him be 6' at age 13, as a muggle, is very realistic. Please revisit that piece and either make his height more reasonable for a muggle or explain the reason for his height. You'd also have to resolve how he is treated by his fellow classmates for being a foot taller than them, and, most likely, taller than most of the 7th years and much of the Hogwart staff as well.

Secondly, the other issue that seems to be not so workable for me is that if, at 6' tall, his arms hang down almost to his knees, that makes him seriously out of proportion and gives him a very ape-like appearance. I'm not sure what would make him so out of proportion to the rest of his own body, and you would also have to address the likelihood that he would be the butt of some horribly cruel jokes by a good portion of the student body.

One last thing, if he's 13, he would be a third year, unless he's been put back a year for some reason. Can you clarify that?

Aye! Quite strange considering myself is of thirteen years of age and is six feet tall. My parents were extraordinarily tall and I admire their height.
Yes, and his arms are almost strangely as long as his knees and I respect that.

Aye! I did screw on that. I shall finish that inmediately.
(I actually am not too thrilled to RP. I have been under the weather lately and I kind of haven't read these books for a while so the terminology is quite difficult to comprehend yet again.)
