    22 march
    an activity check was just posted! all posts from today (march 22) to april 5th will be accepted. make sure to post in the ac thread if you are deleting any characters!

    15 march
    it is now april on the site, and with a new season comes a new skin! as well, with the beginning of april comes out first site event in awhile: the wedding of christian norwood and chloe fontaine. only purists are welcome, but feel free to create your own threads within the board - there's a lot of drama that you aren't going to want to miss! as well, the ratios have been updated and we are currently looking for hufflepuffs, ravenclaws and males xoxo, tytd staff.

    15 february
    hello loves! the activity check is now over and the inactive accounts have been deleted. as well, any threads that haven't been replied to since jamuary 25th have been archived.

    after the activity check, the bans still remain on gryffindor and durmstrang students (for members that have two or more characters) we noticed while doing the ratios, that we really need: beaxbatons males, slytherin females and ravenclaws the sooner these character rations get higher, the sooner the band will be removed.

    if you have an idea for one of the banned characters, keep in mind that durmstrang students can have personalities that fit them in one of the hogwarts houses and gryffindor students can be in beauxbatons because there is no "personality" to a beauxbatons student.

    xoxoxo, tytd staff.

SUPERNATURAL CREATURES

as you all know, the hp world has supernatural creatures and abilities! we get vague details about some, while specifics for others so, below we've outlined how we've set up these things here at tytd. we borrowed vampire/werewolf concepts from the vampire diaries.

apparition
▲ apparition is a magical form of teleportation, through which a witch or wizard can disappear from one location and reappear in another. it is sometimes accompanied by a distinctive cracking or popping sound, though this is associated with ineptitude rather than success; the most skilled wizards can apparate suddenly and silently that they seem to have popped out of the ground. the act is also accompanied by a very unpleasant squeezing sensation, as though being sent through a tight rubber tube.
▲ for reasons of security, the grounds of hogwarts are protected by ancient anti-apparition and anti-disapparition spells, which prevent humans from using apparition in the school grounds. this does not extend to magical creatures such as house-elves and phoenixes, who can still use their own form of apparition.
▲ apparition is learned through the ministry. a witch or wizard must be 17 years old to a licensed apparitioner

animagus
▲ an animagus is a witch or wizard who can turn into a particular animal at will. not everyone can do it.
▲ this ability is not innate: it must be acquired by magical means - in other words it must be learned from a professional via another registered animagi
▲ all animagi must register at the ministry. it is illegal to obtain this ability without registering.
▲ every animagus has a specific animal form. they keep this form their entire life. it never changes.
▲ a practiced animagi can transform at will, and retain the minds while in their animal form.
▲ the animal form is suited uniquely with the individuals personality. no two animagus are the same.

legilimens
▲ this is the ability to extract feelings and memories from another person's mind.
▲ this is not the same as telepathy, as personal thoughts are not seen/heard, only memories and feelings
▲ legilimens can detect lies in another person
▲ they cannot break through an occulmens, unbreakable vow, or person protected by any sort of magic (dark or via the ministry).
▲ only advance legilimens can read minds non-verbally and wandlessly. otherwise, you must use the incantation legilimens to penetrate another's mind.
▲ this is a learned ability. one that can not be mastered immediately. it takes years and years to master

metamorphagi
▲ a metamorphagus is a witch or wizard born with the ability to change some or all of their appearance at will.
▲ it is a rare ability and can only be inherited genetically.
▲ a metamorphagi can choose their looks and completely change their appearance. not all metamorphagi are able to control their ability to this point, and even then, different levels of control take a very long time to learn. those who can't control their ability very well, will often have a change of hair/eye color based on moods/emotions.
▲ they can't completely change into animals or other non human beings

occlumensbr> ▲ this is the counter skill to legilimency.
▲ this ability prevents a legilimens from extracting feelings and memories from the occlumens mind
▲ this is a very difficult skill to learn. it isn't something that can be mastered right away, as proved by harry potter himself. it takes years and years to master.

seers
▲ there are many different types of seers. the most common are those who can see either the past or the future (note: they cannot see both) when they touch someone. these visions do not happen every time they touch someone, however it is common (especially when coming into contact with a stranger). seers are also known to have visions when they come into contact with items or their visions come to them in dreams. some seers can only see particular bits and pieces of a person, it all depends on their strength. no two seers are completely alike in ability and none are all powerful.
▲ one common thing between all seers is that their visions are painful (usually there is some form of an intense headache. visions can also cause insomnia.
▲ seers can't use their ability on other seers.
▲ there is no cure.
▲ prophecies are rare, but possible. if you wish your character to have a prophecy, please pm an admin first.

vampires
▲ students can not be turned.
▲ no killing of students or professors
▲ vervain is a heard that is poisonous to vampires. it hurts them severely if they come in contact with it in any form. if taken by humans, it can prevent compulsion and their blood will be poisonous to a vampire. it can be mixed into liquids or laced into certain jewellery. this herb is very, very, hard to find so, don't think everyone can have it.

▲ vampires are able to use compulsion to alter the actions of humans. please don't take advantage of this skill, seeing as vampires generally only use it in necessary situations.
▲ staking a vampire through the heart or ripping their hearts out will kill them automatically. that is it. end of story.
▲ werewolf bites to a vampire is toxic and fatal. it will kill a vampire.
▲ vampires can not beget children with humans or other vampires
▲ vampires are able to go into the sunlight as long as they possess what is known as a daylight ring. a daylight ring needs to be charmed by a witch and if the vampire takes it off during the day, they will be burned alive. luckily for vampires, there are lots of witches able to charm their rings, they just need to find one willing
▲ in order to turn into a vampire. you have to die with vampire blood in your system. if a vampire gives you their blood and you then die, no matter what the circumstances, you will be turned into a vampire.
▲ vampires can drink blood from humans, animals and blood bags. human blood is the most satisfying, and animal blood and blood bags are also possible. a vampire can survive for a week without blood without losing control of their bloodlust. a vampire will never 'die' without blood, they will just go into a decaying, comatose state.
▲ vampires have heightened senses. they can see things, hear things and feel things much more vividly than humans. meaning when they feel emotion, it is magnified.
▲ there is not cure for vampirism.

veelas
▲ veelas are a race of semi-human, semi-magical creatures.
▲ pure veelas appear to be young, beautiful human women, and their appearance and especially their dance are magically seductive to almost all males. when veelas are angry, however, they transform -- their faces turn into cruel-beaked bird heads and long scaly wings burst from their shoulders, and they can launch balls of fire from their hand. pure veelas are very, very, rare - if anymore exist at all. we will not be accepting any pure veelas
▲ they are born with the veela blood. it is purely genetically and passes from mother to her children. males can inherit this gene but, they do not pass it along.
▲ hogwarts does not allow full of half veelas because of this dominant behaviour. it is more common to see witches/wizards with 1/8th veela blood or less.

wandless magic
▲ this a practiced ability and it is extremely, extremely difficult to master. it takes years and years of practice. only a handful of old witches and wizards in history have managed to master this ability.
▲ it is a learned ability but, again it is very difficult.

werewolves
▲ hanging into a werewolf is very painful. it feels as if every bone in your body is breaking repeatedly. it is not a quick, painless process in the slightest. werewolves will be sick for days before and after every transformation.
▲ werewolves generally only have control over themselves if they have taken wolfsbane, otherwise, they have no control over themselves.
▲ werewolves only change form during the full moon phase.
▲ werewolves are very emotional and all their senses are heightened. werewolves tend to be more aggressive than vampires, and when angered, can lash out. they also have intense strength
▲ in order to be a werewolf, you must be bitten by a werewolf in their wolf form.as per pottermore, born werewolves do not exist
▲ there is no cure for lycanthropy.
