Hi. I'm Astra Carling. I'm just learning my way around.
I'm a pure-blood witch, but I didn't know it until my letter arrived. My parents felt that our family would be safer if we didn't attract attention , so they were living like muggles, at least as far as I knew.
When my letter arrived, I thought it was some sort of joke, but they sat down and explained everything to me.

It isn't a joke, right?

Anyway, I've been sorted into Ravenclaw, and I hope to make friends and learn loads.

I might eventually post my muggle introduction...

Hello! I'm Arfæstne (just... make up a nickname, I don't mind), and I'm a Hufflepuff First Year, a Londoner and an on-and-off member of about 5 different hogwarts sites at this point ;u; This is my gap year before university, and I'm hoping to study Sociology and History. I've never been sorted into Hufflepuff before so this makes a nice change! My particular interests Hogwarts-wise are runes, wandlore, procrastination, magical theory and ethics, and I've been analysing wands for people for a little while now.

I reckon the site structure will just take me a while to get my head around, so I'll try and hold off with questions about that. But if anyone can tell me which, if any, classes I can join this late in the term I'd be very grateful! The classes page says, or at least implies, that you can join some but not all classes mid-term, but the individual entry-level class pages I've looked at don't seem to include information as to whether they can be joined mid-term. Do I just join a couple and hope? Is it even possible for me to pass a class at this point? Sorry if this information is somewhere in the handbook, I think I've read it all but I could have missed something.

Edit: I missed something. Thanks Professor Black!

Hi and welcome to HOL.

You should still be able to join most classes and the professors will adjust the assignment due dates for you. I would recommend sending a message to the professors though so they know you want to join (many don't regularly check the sign ups at this point in the year). If you're interested in musicals my class is happy to accept new students!

Enjoy the classes you choose (I always have a hard time narrowing it down to 5!)

I'm Rayven Field and I may or may not have had my mind wiped of most of the account information for my last account on this site... I really am hopeless, aren't I?
Oh well, I kept forgetting to hand my homework in.
I promise to be better this time.
Or to just not join any classes.


I've been sorted into Hufflepuff and I'm excited to start my journey here again and to make the same friends as I had before!

Please ignore everything in tiny font. I'll regret this later even without you mentioning it.

Hello, Rowan here. I'm a Ravenclaw first year, it seems no matter how many sites I've been sorted on I always end up in Ravenclaw. I'm 23 (absolutely ancient, shh). I live in the UK and try to read as much as I can, but being a student nurse doesn't leave a lot of free time. I'm excited to be here, really looking forward to classes starting after the summer!
