Oh my G! I am so looking forward to this one! I have never been one for RPG but I am gonna give it a shot and work one up. I am still on my first swap, Disney Villians, I am shipping out my package tomorrow, which is actually early before the due date. I am hoping to have my feedback in time for this and one other swap. Wow this is going to be soooo cool!

Full Name: Circe Padraig
Sex: F
Alignment: Chaotic neutral
Lineage (pureblood, half-blood, muggle born): Half blood (My mum's a proud, wonky Irish witch. My dad got spooked when he found out she was a witch. That's why I took my mum's last name.)
If not human, Race:
Nationality: Irish-Mexican
Age: 24
Zodiac sign: Sagittarius

Appearance: 5'3 with a curvaceous body. Long raven black hair streaked with silver and bangs. Hair is usually worn loose. Small slightly upturned nose. Thin and archy eyebrows, a spattering of freckles(ugh). Multiple piercings in her ears including a pair stretched to 3/4 inch. Other piercings include a septum, and monroe. Black, rectangular glasses. Never without a playful smirk and a mischievous (but good natured) glint in her eye.
Dressing style (traditional, muggle, alternative...): I dress in what the muggles call "Steam punk"
Other (birthmark, tattoos, weird shape of the nose): a number of tattoos with magical/spell significance and a few piercings. But, one can never have enough pointy hats and luxurious robes. But, since I'm mostly at home with the brood (very messy, indeed), experimenting with potions(sometimes things go "BOOM!"), or playing quidditch... I'm mostly in a comfortable pair of black leggings, slouchy "witch"hat, a band shirt, and robe.

Personality in 3-4 lines (the more you add, the more your partner will know what to send): She is a good natured, saucy witch. Always up for a good joke. Her family and friends are the core of her being( especially her three little ones). She stands for those she loves and expects them to stand for her in return. She will do anything for her loves one but is no doormat. Once crossed her trust is hard to regain. She makes an amazing friend but a formidable enemy. She relishes being a domestic goddess and a SAHM.


Likes: knitting, embroidery, cookery, experimenting with new potions, tending to her brood, getting tattoos, playing Quidditch as a beater for the Barstow Banshees and a good laugh with a good meal with a good bunch of people.
Dislikes: dark magic (they ruin it for the rest of us!), ignorance, people with no sense of humor, divination, and toads.
Strong point in magic: Potions and non verbal spells
Weak points: Divination
Special skill: Love potions, veritaserum and cookery
Favorite colour: black
Least favorite colour: Yellow

Wand: 10 inch, flexible, rosewood with a phoenix tail feather core.

Occupation: Currently SAHM going to school in hopes of becoming a potions mistress at Hogwarts.

What school does/did s/he attend/ed? Hogwarts
If Hogwarts, what house? Ravenclaw
What was his/her favorite class? Potions, Herbology
What was his/her least favorite class? Divination

Matrimonial status? Happily married to a muggle
Does your character have children? What age? Yes, three. A 5yr old boy, a 18 month old girl, and a 6 week old girl. The boy, Azriel has begun to show signs of magical ability. Yay!
Does your character own pets (magical or not)? A cat named Dickens and a owl named Smiggy.
Does your character have any interest in Quidditch? Yes, she plays beater for the Barstow Banshees.
 
Hobbies: Knitting, needle arts, and quidditch.

Things Your character would need/want:
- Magical charms,
- A bag to carry my potions books
- a house sweater/socks
- a roll to carry my knitting needles
- Barstow Banshee Quidditch Gear
- House banner
- edible delights
- arm warmers, wristlets to kepp my hands/wrists warm but my fingers free when I'm playing quidditch
- Tea cozy

Things Your character wouldn't need/want:
- Nothing cartoony
- Stuff based on the movies.

I love Harry Potter Books and have been enchanted by their world ever since, I am still waiting for my invite to Hogwarts, I reckon it may just come late, quite a while later than 11 (o= 
I would love to do a Harry Potter swap but am a little nervous about the RPG aspect as I am woefully ignorant and don't know what RPG stands for or how you make one...is it written up characters illustrated by imagination or computer virtual reality based characters that you make somewhere?  Sorry if this is a silly question...just don't know...thought I'd ask before signing up so I know what I can do/need to do (o= to be most involved in every aspect of this swap...
Look forward to learning more (o=

You're not even obligated to enter that part, but it you want to try it, here's what I did: Think about yourself in the HP world, and fill the character sheet Smiley How would you see yourself in the magical world? What job would you have? what class would have been your favorite??

RPG stands for Role playing game. We're creating a character, mostly our Magical alter-ego, and the partner we'll get will craft for the character, from their character.

Ex: My character, Andraa, knows Circe because they played Quidditch together at Hogwarts for some years (Circe is older then Andraa) somehow they bonded, probably due to their love for Potion making, and its teaching,  but now that Andraa went back to her hometown oversea they don't see as much. So Andraa decide to make her and "buy" her some goodies to send her for let's say... Her bday. She find for her a 1898 Barstow Banshee playing shirt autographed by Egelrwineth Milltonborg (a woman pioneer of Quidditch), a beginner kit for her older son, Self-knitting knitting needles in a nice roll, and some magical chocolate wand and auto-spelling sugar quill as an extra.

On her side, Circe sends a late Xmas gift to Andraa: some slytherin mittens and a scarf, since she complained she lost her old one, auto-cleaning diapers since she's gonna have a newborn, and a notebook full of her latest tries at potion making to share with Andraa (with some ingredient that are more rare in Qubec) and a batch of Bertie Bott's bean with some Bloody Pops and Jelly Slugs, yum!

I completely made that up since ZombieQueen post an hour ago Smiley
Hope this helps a bit!

Everyone who has joined the swap so far should now have it listed in their profile.

Please check to see that it is there! This is my first time organizing and I want to be sure that things are running correctly. Smiley

Hehe thank you!

Can't wait to get to see who Andraa will be shopping for!

meanwhile, my list of homemade HP candies for extras is growing. Beware, and please Troublet, don't match me with a diabetic! ahah

http://mamantattoo.blogspot.com/2009/10/waffles-wands.html Here's something I'll probably do. I'm sharing the recipe on my blog.
It's a variation of something I found here: http://heatherbailey.typepad.com/heather_bailey/2009/07/swish-and-flick.html and there's some other cool stuff HP related you could easily do Smiley
