Sadly, my dears, I think it's time to shut the doors on Occultus and close the RP. It's a hard decision and is no one's fault - you have all been lovely to role play with - but I feel the motivation has disappeared (mainly mine). I am sorry to those that wanted to continue but the interest hasn't picked back up (yet again, mainly on my part) and the game has suffered severely because of it.

I can't express enough gratitude to you all for sticking with such a little game and wish you all the best in any future games you play in. Perhaps we might cross paths again and feel free to send me a nudge via AIM or email.

Thanks lovelies,

P.S. I will not be deleting the communities (I am a bit of a hoarder in that regard) so nobody's writing will be lost.

As promised, the Quidditch Rankings of the 1998-99 Season!

Points are worked out by adding together the points scored by the team and adding the points scored against the team. Then taking away the total of points scored against from points scored for. Lost? Don't panic. The important thing you really have to know is the rankings.

(Note: The points are only from the first half of the season because I got lazy.)

Draco Malfoy  


My name is Jesse and I role play Draco Malfoy. He is the only character from Harry Potter that I ever actually serious Rped, though I did have a stint as Snape and Sirius at one point. Neither lasted long. I have been role playing for years and years and.... yes, more years.

I have AIM, but I'm not a normal user of it, which will have to change, but I do check my email every day. My AIM is NotAGryffidorkx.

I'm fairly new to journal Rp. I've always done chat rooms and messages and what not, though I have done a few PSLs. This is my first game, hopefully I won't bomb. 

I'm open to any suggestions or tidbits of help.

I think that's it.

Ummmm HI?!  
So...I kinda dropped off the face of the earth for...a long time. If you guys will still have me I'd love to be a part of it all again. Er....*sheepish*

Penn Icons?  
Hey guys? I'm having some serious trouble finding muppet-hair Penn icons (like this or this, because Harry has unruly hair, lol)... Anyone know any good artists/comms to check out? Thanks!

I bring yet another minion into the game.. (though I have a long way to go to catchup with El and Twin...)

This is Ginny Weasley :)

She is still at school so will be contactable by owl, unless someone comes and meets her in Hogsmede for the day?

Despite being at school, she wants to play!! So if anyone has any ideas, get in touch :D <3

I bring you another little nutter! This one is called WAGS!

He is the lead singer for the Weird Sisters. He would love to play with people! He doesn't trust very easily at first, but once he gets to know someone he becomes incredibly loyal.

Ping me if you want him!! XD

Any characters wanted?  
So, I'm actually writing lately! And I'd love to interact more. Any particular characters people are missing/wanting? I was thinking trio-aged, but I'm game for just about anything as long as they wouldn't need to have too direct a relationship with Cho or Adrian, lol. Any suggestions? ♥

Hello my loves!

Just a quick apology to those people I am threading with. I'm having a severe case of writer's block at the minute. Hopefully my muses will come back soon. I still love you all and will be tagging as soon as I possibly can. xxx

Hi errrone! I'm Jess (the non-mod) and I'm bringing in Terry Boot. I know a bunch of you (HIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII) so I'm not going to bother really introducing myself, except to say that Decemember is my crazy month so I'm excited to be in a smaller game I can actually keep up with! WOOHOO.


Terry is an Apprentice Curse Breaker, working with his grandfather Aloysius Boot who is well known in Curse Breaking Circles. His father is Jasper Boot, former Quidditch Golden Boy in the 1980's and early 90's, and the new head coach of Puddlemere (so Terry knows a bunch of you because he likes to crash the locker room every now and then to make sure his father has eaten, and also to fanboy the team. He's been their biggest fan since he was a tot, and tagged along with his Dad to practices.)

Other important things to note:

- Terry is crazy about blowing shit up in the name of science. His Granddad is trying to help him do that responsibly.
- His grandparents might be clandestine members of the Order of the Phoenix.
- His grandmother is the author of dozens of illicit romance novels that have entertained bored housewives for decades.

And uh....I think that's all! Plots, backstory, & etc. welcome! :)

The Quidditch scores for this weekend are up. Find them here - Round 14.

Edit: And because mod is a lazy face... all results would have been printed up in the Daily Prophet as well as information on the new team line-ups - this includes a little paragraph about Marcus Flint being the new Falcons Captain:
"Marcus Flint, star Chaser of the Falmouth Falcons has been made Captain after the departure of Christian Delaney to Tutshill over the Season break. Flint has only transferred over to the Falcons this season but he was a natural choice to lead the Falcons - as he proved with their crushing victory over the Arrows this past weekend. Flint also looks like he is in good contention to be on the English National side in their upcoming friendly International Match against China in late March."

Okay... feel free to have your characters react to that.

A Few Notes on Quidditch

We have a few Quidditch players in play now so I thought I'd put this up to explain how the Quidditch Season works in Occultus.

There are 13 Teams in the British and Irish Quidditch League and the Season is broken up into two halves, 13 rounds each half. (So each Team gets to verse each other at Home and Away). The season starts the first weekend of August (in game being the 6th and 7th). And runs for 13 weeks before players get a mid-season break, which generally runs for two weeks.

At the game's beginning we had just finished the first 13 rounds. Scores and matches are listed here (rounds 1 to 6) and here (rounds 7 to 13).

Quidditch will recommence next weekend (19th and 20th November) and will continued for another 13 rounds - with a two week break for the weeks of Christmas and New Years (19th December to 3rd January). Rounds 14 to 19 can be found here. 19 to 26 are coming soon.

The regular Quidditch season will end the last weekend of February. With finals rounds in the following three weeks. After finals, players have representational games playing for their countries and what have you... or just a really long break till the new season starts in August again.

Cho Chang, charmed, she's sure  
Hey all! Adrian's mun, Tina, here - bringing my reluctant Miss Popularity Cho Chang to the game! If you'd like her/wanna set up any backstory just let me know! She's a bit of a second stringer on Puddlemere, so there're lots of alums around for play if any of you would like :)

Hi all,

I have net issues at home at the moment, so access is sporadic at best. I will try and tag during my lunch breaks at work. But just to warn you that I will definitely be on a go slow until the issue is sorted.

El :)

Hello all! I'm Stephanie and I'm bringing Sophie Roper into the game. Her info is here. She's a trainee at St. Mungo's and just graduated Hogwarts in June. She lives in a flat near St. Mungo's with her punk kitten. She's friendly with pretty much everyone, though if someone tells her she can't do something because she's a muggleborn she will get annoyed.

Open for discussing friendships/plots/anything. Just send me a message here or on AIM.

At the Ministry this morning  
Adrian is around at the Ministry if anyone would like to bump into his grumpy butt :)

Adi Pucey, checking in  
Good morning, all! I'm Tina, and I'm bringing my sniveling little Adi Pucey into the game. I'm really excited to be here!

Adrian is in the press office at the Ministry, he's mostly writing and sucking up to his boss, which is pretty much what he does best, other than party inappropriately. He's got a thing for muggle prostitutes and party favors, even though he's a major blood purist. I see lots of his former Housemates around so if anyone would like to run into the twitchy little nitwit, just let me know ♥
