Okay as someone who adores the world of Harry Potter but found the plot... lacking I've always wanted to do an HP roleplay. So here's my pitch: it's mostly a slice of life of the lives of the students at Hogwarts because in my opinion there will be enough magic and adventures without the who "Boy Who Lived" plot.

I also want to deal with a lot of the of the criticisms of HP as a world, unanswered question, so on and so forth. The big one is the houses you are assigned when you first arrive. Due to wanting to over-think and put way too much realism into a book about magic eleven-year-olds I feel as though there would probably be stereotypes that the movies show as there. Slytherins are considered evil, Hufflepuffs are wimps, RavenClaws are stuck-up(?), and Gryffindors are hot-shots.

However I want some help in making it and fleshing it out.

This is honestly a really good idea so far and I'm a major lover of the books and movies for sure. I would so love to see this happen and if you needed anything I'd be willing to give my input.

The big thing is that if I did it I would like a co-runner to help me because I've never lead a group rp before

If this is still open I'd love to join... I think this could be really interesting. I love the HP world, and I've noticed my fair share of plot and world holes.

Of course you may join
Good to hear, I just want to know how quickly you're expecting the rp to move. I usually can only post every other day because of my job. If that's a problem then I don't want to slow everyone else down! D:

Okay I just wanna do a vague headcount and you guys can change your mind later but I want an idea of characters we are getting. I just want people to put what kind of characters you want to fo i.e. house, if you want to be a teacher, and how many characters you want

... Hufflepuffs aren't whimps. They're special snowflakes. ; 3 ; Hufflepuff is literarily the house anyone not quite fitting into any of the other categories are thrown into. Doesn't make them whimps. They're just the ADHD/ADD kids of the bunch. <3

Besides that I might be interested, though. ^^
