My Application is the Best  
The Basics

Name: Cecelia

Age range (13-15, 16-19, 20-24, 25+): 25+

Favorite character: Hermione

Least favorite character: Sirius

Favorite Non-Harry Potter related fandom: There *are* other fandoms? Kidding. I (and apparently I alone, *sniff*) ship Korendil/Eric in Mercedes Lackey's Bedlam's Bard Series.

What is your pet peeve?: Having to repeat myself. Listen the first time or don't bother speaking to me.

The Deeper Stuff

Five years from now you are diagnosed with a terminal illness. It can be cured by a single pill that costs $5,000 dollars and is not covered by insurance. How would you go about getting the medication? Suck it up and bleed my poor mutual fund dry.

Your house is burning down - all people and pets are out safely. You are able to save one item. What is it and why? My computer.  I'm a writer--all of my stuff is replaceable, but my stories are not.

You find a wallet in a parking lot. It has $1,000 dollars cash in it and a driver's license. You look at the license and realize it belongs to a co-worker you speak to on a daily basis. What do you do?  Return it intact. What goes around comes around (sometimes my cynical nature is shocked by how true that can be).

You've been given $100,000 dollars. If you can use it all within one hour you will be given one million dollars. What do you do? Well, if I'm at home, first, I sigh deeply. If there was a bookstore within half an hour's drive I'd go blow it there, but, as my county is a barbaric and bookstore-less place, I'd go buy cars. The only high-end items within a thirty-minute drive (shopping/purchasing would take at least thirty minutes, I'd guess)  are cars and tractors, and cars would probably be easier to sell later.  This shopping spree would astonish anyone who knew me because I hate driving with a burning passion.  Anyway, then I'd take the million and go book shopping, bwhahaha! (And, y'know, buy a house and a lot of land, and other boring stuff.)

You see a famous person in the lobby of a busy movie theater and no one else has noticed him/her. What do you do? Shrug and go about my business. Famous people don't interest me.  Also I tend to be so out-of-touch with the celebrity media-circus that I likely wouldn't recognize a famous person if I stumbled across one, even if he or she had an entourage.

You come upon a wishing well and toss a coin in to make a wish. Your wish is granted. What did you wish for? A wind-powered house as far back in the Appalachian Mountains as you can get without living in a bear den.

You're 70 years old and writing your autobiography. What is the title and why would people read it? The Quiet Life: A Modern Hermit. It would only appeal to my fellow hermits, who, tending to be misanthropes, would have little interest in anyone's autobiography. People who want to be more independent and quasi-spiritual might get through the first chapter or two, until my cozy cynicism drives them away.

You have been gifted with the chance to actually perform a magical spell. In front of you stands your greatest love, your worst enemy, and a pile of inanimate objects ready to be used in your spell. Which spell do you allow yourself to use and why have you chosen that spell? Hmm. A Potter-verse spell? I suppose I'd transfigure one of the objects into a dragon: this would amuse me, impress my true love, and frighten my enemy. Also, the world could use some real dragons. 

(After creating the beast I'd drag my love behind something fireproof and hide until the dragon flew away.)

You find a magic lamp, rub it, and out pops a Genie. You are given the chance to relive and change one experience in your past. What do you change (if any) and why? I don't have any immense regrets. I suppose I could go back and not accidentally slap Andy W. back in eighth grade (I really, really didn't mean to but I don't think anybody believed my apology. Poor, confused Andy.)

Yes/No Questions
Mark each word with a yes or a no as it applies to you. Feel free to explain each answer (not mandatory)

Logical: Yes. Well, I try to be, anyway. People who think with their hearts drive me mad.
Emotional: No. Unless you show me an animal. People leave me cold.
Intelligent: Yes. I'm not a genius but I'm not stupid (though would I actually know if I was...?)
Fair: Yes, for the most part. I have my blind spots and overreactions like everyone else--I just try to keep track of them.
Witty: Yes, but only in the right circumstances and with the right people.
Creative: Yes. I write, draw, cook, fiddle with jewelry, embroider... Um, yeah.
Cunning: Yes. Well, I can be, but subterfuge exhausts me and makes my stomach hurt.
Ambitious: No. I am *haughty sniff* above the acclaim of men. (So long as I'm comfortable and not living under a bridge, I'm dandy.)
Brave: Yes in the standing up to Basilisks sense (I've stood down an extremely aggressive dog pack before with only my voice as a weapon). Not so much when it comes to emotional stuff--that's when I'm sneaky.
Loyal: Yes, sometimes beyond the point of reason and self-preservation.
Honest: Yes--to a fault, sometimes. Of course, I also know that the best lies come from telling the absolute truth and nothing but.
Trustworthy: Yes.
Impulsive: No: I think twice and then think again.
Mean: No. I try very hard to keep my mouth shut if I can find nothing good to say.
Cruel: No, in real life. In my head? Yes, in spades. But I very rarely let that ogre loose--for which everyone around me should be extremely grateful.
Dishonest: No, never in small things and only very rarely (and for the best of reasons) in large.
Observant: Yes--in certain areas. For instance, I am the beta reader you always wanted (or feared, if you are a gentle soul). No when it comes to what I consider inconsequential: clothing, the political weather of a group, etc. So, um, it depends?
Stubborn: Yes. If something matters to me, it matters. It's just that the things I care that much about are few and far between.
Friendly: No. I'm too quiet and closed-off to be considered friendly. It can take me decades (literally) to open up to someone.
Kind: Yes, if by that you mean absence of active cruelty under provocation. I try to be thoughtful of people and make things go more smoothly in my presence: that's the kind and extent of my kindness.
Compassionate: Yes, but I think my point of emotional shut-down comes earlier than most people's. I'll let you cry on my shoulder and not say a word about how I *told* you he was a jerk before you started dating. However, if constantly exposed to your whining for more than twenty-four hours--ka-boom, I'll give you something to whine about.
Hard-working: Yes--on something *I* consider important.
Lazy: Yes, regarding things I don't consider important.
Outgoing: No. Though I'm told it is impossible, I got a hundred percent rating for introversion on the MBTI.

Getting a 100% rating for introversion on the MBTI is not impossible, it's just extremely rare. To some psychologists, extremely rare = impossible.

Anyway, enough of my psychobabble, I see you as a Slytherin because of your Yes and No answers and a few others throughout your application.
Good. I like a whore with sentiment.: First Rulemypet_virus on May 9th, 2007 11:42 pm (UTC)
Isn't this an obvious Ravenclaw? I don't see where the Gryffindor comes from as you seem more detached and objective, and Gryffindor's, to me, are much more aware of emotions and feelings/impulses. You even said 'no' to whether or not you were emotional. I can see some Slytherin, but seeing as I'm a Slytherin in all my other communities, I feel safe in saying that I think overall, you are not. You have the artistic and intelligent and unusually not verbose makings of a good eagle, in my opinion. From your value of writing, to tendency for hermit like behavior. So, you're coming with me, to Ravenclaw.

We'll have to put our differences aside, as I have been stamped as Sirius several times, but I figure we'll get on just fine.

I don't see Hufflepuff. I don't actually see much Gryffindor either. You're either Slytherin or Ravenclaw Your answer to the yes/no on "Ambition" pushed me over to those Eagle-lovers. :)

As much as I want you to come roar with me (omgbbqetc-Kory/Eric fan! :D) I'm gonna have to agree with everyone else-Ravenclaw for you!

I just can't place you. You're not ambitious or cunning enough to be a Slytherin, you're not bold enough to be a Gryffindor and just because you love books and write doesn't make you a Ravenclaw either. Hufflepuff, I couldn't see at all.

So, sorry but I have to squib. I don't think I have to feel bad about it either, as my fellow clubbers seem to see enough to place you.

Slytherin of Ravenclaw would fit but I see you much more as a Ravenclaw!

I liked your application a lot :)

I want you to be in my group, but I see you as more Ravenclaw than anything else.

I will eventully get this right...
You've been sorted into Ravenclaw! Congratulations! :) You can now join the various Club Hogwarts communities - including your club house!

Also, and don't forget, as one of the first Club members - you're far cooler than others!
