Perhaps we should get an offsite forum for the future RPs?
So if needed we can go into sexual or violent content?
I know of such a website.
Get an off-site forum? *smacks UDCS* No, bad Greg!
You've all done an outstanding job with this RP. The IC flows very nicely, and this group's talented players breathe life into their characters and the setting. The majority of these characters are three-dimensional. Readers can easily empathize with them.
You, NRE, are an excellent writer and I can see that you work hard at keeping the integrity of the HP universe intact. The IC HP'verse setting is realistic, in other words, and readers do feel like they've stepped into a Hogwarts set in the future.
It would be a shame to see a quality RP leave P2TM. Yes, the PG13 cap seems a nuisance, but there isn't a player here that lacks the talent necessary to portray serious romance or horror in a way that doesn't cross the line.
What I do see in the IC is a realistic portrayal of love and relationships. It's a mature-minded approach rather than silly middle-school guesswork on how couples would interact while still reacting to the world around them. In particular, Adam and Rachel's sweet devotion to each other does not overshadow the plot. NRE and Miekzhemy, you've done a fantastic job. Build upon it and continue to serve as an example of what real life is like for a couple existing in a fast-paced world filled with magic and danger. You've several scenes worthy of submission to annual P2TM Awards' romance category. It's THAT good.
The intelligent writer appeals to the intelligent reader. Gorn and porn are cheap candy for kiddies. Horror and romance are difficult to write, but this group does so seemingly effortlessly. Be proud of that, people... you really are an awesome group.
If you have any questions, or would like some feedback on your writing, don't hesitate to TG me, or hunt me down in Madhouse. Although I love the HP franchise, I just don't have the time to join another RP. It would be a pleasure to step into the universe you've recreated here, however. I'll simply remain a reader for now, nail-biting as the students work towards their goals in the DADA class, and wondering if Caitie's angst will eventually eat her alive.
A storm is brewing over the magical world, eighteen years after the end of the Second Wizarding War...

1998-2003: Ron and Harry go on to become Aurors. Hermione goes back for her last year at Hogwarts. The wizarding world recuperates, the Ministry rebuilds, and attempts to recover.
2004: Hermione starts at the ministry. More liberal elements of the ministry emerge, backing her
2004-2010: Disgruntled conservative members of the ministry speak out against house elf reforms, and later the equalisation of rights between muggle-borns and pure-bloods. There are attempts to blocks the reforms made by Hermione Granger and Minister for Magic Kingsley Shacklebolt, although they fail. Slytherin diversified and now includes a larger proportion of muggle-borns and half-bloods.
2011-2014: Muggle Pride groups begin to pop up, at first praising Granger and Shacklebolt for their work, but more radical members of these groups say that muggles (Particularly muggle-borns) are superior to pure-bloods, and that laws should be biased in their favour. Some are even in favour of abandoning the statute of secrecy so the muggle government can regulate the wizard one.
2014-2017: Pure-blood wizard conservative backlash against extremist muggle-borns lead to several violent attacks, causing many to be sent to Azkaban. More moderate pure-bloods, which the ministry tried so hard to create, become blood supremacists. Tensions are high in the wizarding world, and there are fears there could be all-out war between the two factions as more are driven to the extremes – half bloods are beings left in the middle, shunned by both sides.
These people, much like their predecessors like Voldemort and Grindelwald, look down on anyone without pure wizard blood – those being half-bloods, muggle borns and muggles.
Muggle Born Supremacists:
These people harbour a relatively new ideology, one that states Muggle Borns are superior to all, as they possess the magical abilities of the wizards and the genius and ingenuity of the muggles.
Those who believe blood status holds no meaning over magical society, and that all are equal. The current Ministry for Magic holds this ideology.
A list of teachers:
Minerva McGonnagall is the headmistress at the school. Many see her as a strict, but fair teacher that will make sure all abide by the rules in place.
Neville Longbottom teaches Herbology at the school, and is claimed by many students to be one of the nicer teachers - and more famous, considering his membership of Dumbledores Army and his relationship with Harry Potter, the Boy who Lived. He is head of Gryffindor house.
Eunice Edgecombe teaches charms, and is said to be a rather lenient and chatty teacher - and while nice, she is not the best of teachers. She is head of Hufflepuff House.
Alexander Sedwig teaches Transfiguration, and seems to be quite a talkative and jokey teacher. He is often seen helping students, making sure they do their best. He is head of Slytherin House.
James Jackal teaches potions at Hogwarts. originating from Hogwarts. He had a natural skill for potions after his 7th year he traveled the world learning all that he could before being asked to return as a professor Thai year.
Robert Gleen teaches Defense against the Dark Arts at Hogwarts. He is known for setting extremely easy tests, although tends to push his students quite a lot in lessons. He does, however, help the struggling students. He is a Gryffindor, though not head of house.

Personality: Adam is extremely loyal to his friends. He likes to be around positive people, but he likes to be around people in general so he is very social unless he doesn't like the person then he will try to avoid talking to them. But if he is stuck talking to a person he doesn't like he will put on a positive face and engage in a conversation with them. He will do anything to protect and help his friends and he expects the same from his friends.
Brief Backstory: Adam was born in New York City, his parents had been born in London and moved away from the area before he was born in the hopes of putting their skills to work in America. At the age of 5 his parents wanting him to go to Hogwarts decided to move back after living in America for twenty years. The family put Adam through muggle school while they waited for him to turn old enough. The family moved to the outskirts of London and magic was a common thing around the house, he didn't really understand it until he was 10 years old and his parents finally decided to start to explain how these things were possible and why his friends parents couldn't do this as well. He grew with excitement when his parents told him he would be going to Hogwarts to learn how to use magic as well. So over the next year his parents started to teach him the basics and started to go on trips to Diagon Alley to get him adjusted to the new world he would soon be entering.
A month before he was set to leave, his mother became deathly ill suddenly. It was deemed that his father was behind this and Adam was taken away from his family, all his relatives were dead or they didn't want him. So he was sent to the Galium Family, where he learned a lot about them quickly and he enjoyed him time as much as he could. The family has triplets and they were all about the same age. Adam was younger by a year and they all seemed to get along well, but he still missed his true family and still does. his foster siblings were all separated or well mostly, his sister was in Ravenclaw, one of his brothers was in Gryffindor and the other is in Hufflepuff.
Theme (Optional): have to think about this one.
