A little bit of background information...
As a companion game to _hprp_for_us, in_the_pensive is a Harry Potter Marauder era based story, one that is built from what we can only imagine to be the stories and lives of a generation of Hogwarts students from 30 years ago. These students will go on to become parents, fighters, teachers, heros, villians, leaders, or disappear into obscruity. We know what happens to them in the present, but how does this affect their lives then? What choices did they make, what problems or fights did they take on, who did they have friendships with, and how does it relate back to the present?

We call this In the Pensive, based on the Harry Potter series by JK Rowling. Taking place 30 years ago, the students and staff find themselves in an uneasy time, where Voldemort is about to rise in power, destroying lives. This is a time that has been long forgotten, however, it comes alive as a memory does when placed in a pensive. These are the adventures of the Marauder era, when Moony, Prongs, Padfoot, and Wormtail invented a map that allowed them access to all of Hogwarts...When troubled friendships turn into love, where enemies are made, and sides for the first war are chosen. Here, canon and created characters narrate the story, with several plot lines sometimes running together at once. Within this world, the chracters have adventures, dangers to work past, romance, challenges, and much more.

You might find us a little bit different than most RP's...
As fanfiction/RP writers, we write the action, and sometimes we do write for the other characters. First person and third person narration are often the two most common choices of writing style, but anything pretty much goes. Since this is also fanfiction, we sail several ships here, and we are made up of lots of talented writers/people.

We do have Mods, but we try to keep this a all-hands on game. Everyone can contribute, and everyone has a voice. There is no set-in-stone ultimate plot, and the story can change directions at each updated entry. All role playing is done strictly through posting in the community, not individual journals. This allows the players to do with what they please to their journals.

We don't have strict guidelines to stories, but we do a few rules:
1. No one can die (unless the author chooses to.)
2. No one can be expelled.
3. Characters must interact.
4. You must have a chracter icon for posting, although you don't have to have a new journal.
5. All chracters are listed with their journals. Any chracter not listed or does not have a journal listed next to it, is up for grabs.

Unlike other Harry Potter Role Playing games, they require long drawn out applications, calling for indepth knowledge and an obsessive understanding of the books and movies. They also require sample entries, and sometimes proclamations of future plot ideas, etc. They also have an annoying long wait to find out you've been accepted...or worse....declined.

Well, we don't want to do that here. Everyone is invited to join us, and to activly participate!
We do ask, though, that you post this tiny form as a LJ-cut in your first post. This will help us to know who your chracter is, and can be used later for any RP illustrations or icons.
