Not a problem.  You must be completely overwhelmed.  This is well worth the wait. :)
Hey, I was just thinking that you can easily create your characters history and personality and everything because the house sorting is sometimes a complete surprise to those being sorted. What house you are sorted into in fact need only change things in a very minor way, or it could change them in a major way.

Alternatively if you have a preferred house in mind its quite easy to answer the test in a way that will get you into that house.

Okay, so just so I understand correctly, if I choose to play a first year, my options for sorting are A.) Play the sorting scene with everyone else when it's being played out IC, which I probably won't be able to do cause I won't be around when that takes place, or B.) when I AM able to return and start playing.. wait.. wait... it just clicked in my brain what you mean... I think. So, you and Aiden and sort me along with all of the others (I just won't be here to react to it IC) and when I do return, I can just write it like I was here all along. Is that right?
Michael, I'm guessing that the Sorting Hat scene is weeks away, real time. I'm assuming/hoping we'll have to do the Diagon Alley scene and the Hogwarts Express scenes first at least, and these could take a while to play out.

How far into the future do you think you'll be busy? Six months? LOL.

Also, hi! *hugs*

Presumably because the quiz and that information were not from the same people.

The quiz our beloved GMs gave us to use to decide our wands allowed several different cores besides those used by Ollivander, so its logical to assume that our characters can buy their wands from sources (in Diagon Alley?) other than Ollivanders. As far as I know Ollivanders is the only canon wand supplier in DA, so question:

Will we be able to buy wands from shops other than Ollivanders?

I do hope so because my wood and core combination seems pretty rare and I'm finding it fits my character's personality very well.

Ok, now that I have an answer to this, mostly after having to change up the wands (to make them unique)

Ollivander has a great great newphew who is helping him along run the shop. All wands will be bought from Olivander, (unless a transfer from another country, and currently we only have 1 player fulfilling that criteria)

So while Olivander still has his "signature" line, his nephew has introduced new cores and woods after convincing his great great uncle.

Good god.. You're right, that's huge o.O

Also, question. Dis and I are thinking of ping-ponging a few posts away in the One-Shot area to get a feel for our characters and their interaction (due to being 'old' friends). I'd like to know when the GMs are thinking of opening the main game (estimated, of course).

What number of threads are we going to have? Meaning, are we having a thread for each table plus a Great Hall thread that can include the Sorting Ceremony, or are we going to have the twenty-seven plus people in one thread?
