You have just received your letter to Hogwarts! Yay!

You hurry with your family to the Hogwarts Express, you might be late! Quick! Try to write 200 words in 5 minutes! If you can do so, you arrive just in time! If you can't, grab yourself the nearest magic flying car and fly yourself there! Write 150 words while you wait in the car.

You are about to be sorted, try and write the following words in 2 minutes.
50 - 80: Gryffindor!
80 - 100: Hufflepuff!
100 - 150: Slytherin!
150 - 200: Ravenclaw!
Cheers to you! Your house claps as you go join them.

Potions! Try not to get Snape mad, right at least 150 words in 3 minutes, otherwise write an extra 50 words!

Transfiguration, can you turn your stick into a walking stick? Write 150 words in 3 minutes, otherwise write an extra 50 words!

The rest of your classes go by smoothly, however now it's time for Quidditch training! Try and write the following words in 1 minute!
10-25: You can't get your broom into your hand.
25-50: You manage to achieve lift off from the ground.
50-75: You can do basic turns.
75-100: You're a pro!

And that's it, the day is done, but wait what's the password/answer/whatever to get into your house's common room? Try and write 600 words in 7 minutes, if you can, you're in! You can sleep peacefully, if you can't try to run and sprint (150 words in 2 minutes) to get help from a Prefect!

And finally the day is over.

You have been accepted into Hogwarts!
Today you are going to go to get your school supplies. You head out the door and check your watch. Oh no! You are going to run out of shopping time if you don't hurry! Quick! Sprint 300 words in 5 minutes!
If you made it- then great! You got there and finished your shopping on time, you can go to get some butterbeer now!
If you didn't, oh no, better luck next time. You come out of the shops without your school books and have to shop for them tomorrow. Type 500 words.
Today you are going on the Hogwarts express. You check your bags, but oh no!
You forgot something! Roll a dice or pick a number from 1 to 6:
If you rolled (number) you forgot:
1. Your pet (cat/owl/toad) (wow so forgetful write 500 words)
2. Your books (good thing you realised do a one minute sprint)
3. Your quill (write 250 words)
4. Your whole suitcase! (uh oopsie I wonder how that happened)
5. Your spare robes (do a two minute word sprint)
6. Nothing! So organised! (you don't need to write anything just go have a 30 second break)
You board the Hogwarts express. You find an empty compartment and have a nice trip. But then… knock knock! There's someone at the door. Who is it?
(you choose this)
The food lady (write 200 words)

Type as many words as you can in 5 minutes.
If you typed:
<100 words then you are in Slytherin
100-200 words then you are in Gryffindor
200-300 words then you are in Hufflepuff
>300 words then you are in Ravenclaw
Now it's time to go to the common rooms. If you are in Hufflepuff you can have a break because your rooms are next to the kitchen. Otherwise, type 100 words as you find your room.
The next day, you go to your first class, which turns out to be Charms. If you are in Ravenclaw then take a break because you know everything. Otherwise, type 200 words.
After that, you are faced by a mountain troll who has escaped and snuck into Hogwarts. If you are in Gryffindor you defeat him immediately. Otherwise, type 300 words as you face the troll.
And at the end of the day, you realise that you are out of bounds and you might be caught. If you are in Slytherin, you can take a break as you have already sneaked out but otherwise type 400 words as you try to get out when not getting caught.
In the night, you have a great dinner and laugh with your new friends.
(okay I'm sorry if I acciendtally copied anyone I actually didn't I made it up on the spiot but if it's like anyone else's sorry I didn't mean t and I probably didn;t see yours anyway otherwise I would have changed this.)
o o f my wrist really hurts after typing all that

The letter told you about all your supplies, now to choose your pet. Owls? Cat? Toads? What kind of school is this? Write for 2 minutes to find out your pet.

Whew now you have your pet, and weird supplies. You were able to find a seller on the black market to get your, unordinary, supplies! Now to King's Cross! Write 400 words during your long car ride.

Wow, that worked? You ran into a witch and her children heading to the platform, and they were nice enough to tell you what to do! They said to run through the wall, skeptical, you did! Wow that's some magic. Write for 3 minutes as you bask in your glory.

Wow, that's a big train, you wave goodbye to your family and climb the stairs. Hmmm where to sit, where to sit. There's tons of seats! But which one? Write for 1 minute to find out!

<15 - The smelly kid
25 - The quiet kid, nothing wrong with that! You're just very bored
50 - Someone asks you to sit by them, score!

Whether you had fun on the ride or not, you're finally at the mystical Hogwarts! Time to find out all you need to know!

From the view of a muggle born

Congrats! You made it to The Chamber Of Secrets! Your fate depends on this very moment.

You walk for a little bit. Then you see a person. You lean in and see that the person is the memory of Tom Riddle.

You can:
Run away before he sees you- 45 words in 2 minutes
Wait until he notices you- 65 words in 4 minutes
Cough until he notices you- 100 words in 5 minutes

If you picked RUN away and did it:

You are now out of the chamber of secrets. You can stop reading this.

If you picked WAIT OR COUGH:
He noticed you.
He says" Oh ! You were just the person I was looking for. And you managed to get down here! Not many people are Parseltounge, but the reason I was looking for you , IS THAT I WANT TO SET THE BASILISK ON YOU!"

You can:
Stay quiet and let the basilisk hurt you-60 words
Try to hurt the basilisk- 80 words

You are closing your eyes. Nothing happens for a few seconds , so you open your eyes. There is a puddle on the ground. Suddenly , you see a pair of yellow eyes. Then you are petrified and wake up i the hospital wing a week later and can stop reading this story.

You are jumping on thing to thing trying to save yourself. Then , you get hold of one of it's fangs. You take it out of his mouth and wack it in his eye. He can't see you , but he can smell you. Finally,you are too tired to jump anymore and you are falling, falling , until you wake up in the hospital wing.

I hope you enjoyed this.

You receive your Hogwarts letter by owl and are super excited to head out for your first year at Hogwarts. Sprint to 100 to let out your excitement and energy.

You arrive in Diagon Alley and your first stop is Gringotts, wizard bank. Write for ten minutes. The amount of words you write will determine how many Galleons are in your vault.

Less than 150 words: 1 Galleon

Write for ten minutes as you attempt to socialize with the people around you.

Professor McGonagall escorts you and your peers into the Great Hall for the Sorting. After the Sorting Hat sings its song and several students walk up timidly, your name is called, and you sit yourself down on the stool, timid and worried about what is about to happen. McGonagall places the hat on your head, and you are sorted into your House. Pick from the four Houses- Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, and Slytherin.

Gryffindor: Are you brave enough to write 5 times your typing speed in 10 minutes?

Hufflepuff: Remain loyal to your word count and write steadily for one hour with no breaks.

Ravenclaw: Calculate how many words it will take for you to write to the nearest 1000.

Slytherin: You’re an ambitious one, aren’t you? Write 1000 words in 30 minutes!

The feast is delicious! Roll a die and multiply your roll by 150 as you eat at your House table and talk with those around you, as well as your House ghost. If you have an owl, you may skip this round for free.

Now, it's time to go to bed since you've had such an eventful day. Sprint to 100 words to wind down. YAY! Congrats, you've finished your first day at Hogwarts! Get some sleep so you can get up to learn all about the Wizarding World!

Dumbledore's Army Crawl

Welcome to Dumbledore's Army!
You signed your name on the paper. Whether you like it or not, you're a part of it now. Today is Harry's first lesson- let's see if you're cut out for the rebellion against Umbridge and the Ministry of Magic.

First spell: Expelliarmus!
Though it may not seem too deadly, the disarming spell can save your life if you use it quick enough. This spell knocks the wand right out of your opponent's hand.
It's time to practice!
Roll a six-sided die. The number you get determines your practicing opponent.
1: Zacharias Smith- write 100 words
2: Neville Longbottom- write 200 words
3: Ron Weasley- write 300 words
4: Ginny Weasley- write 400 words
5: Hermione Granger- write 500 words
If you can get to your goal in 3 minutes or less, you can skip the next spell.

Second spell: Impedimenta!
This spell is the impediment jinx. It slows down whoever you jinx.
Time to practice!
You're practicing against Cho Chang today. She's already pretty good at the jinx, but you…not so much. This is why you need the practice.
Write for ten minutes.If your total words is greater than 800, you have successfully cast the jinx on Cho. You can skip the next spell. If the total is between 400 and 800, you cast the jinx, but it missed and ended up hitting a table instead. If the total is less than 400, you weren't quick enough and Cho has slowed you down. For the next spell, you must write double the words it says.

Third spell: Stupefy!
This spell stuns your attacker. It knocks them back and hopefully keeps them down for a while.
Time to practice!
Today it's all about concentration. Really focus on what you're doing in your writin- I mean magic.
Take the last two digits of your word count and multiply it by ten. If it's less than 100, add 400 to your count. >:) Write that many words in as much time as you want.
If you do that in less than six minutes, you completely wiped out your opponent (Fred Weasley) and you've got a special advantage in the final challenge.

Final challenge!!
The final challenge is a test made by Harry to see how much you've learned so far. Let's hope you've done well in your spells so far and can pass this test.
First test- expelliarmus
Count the number of letters in the last sentence you wrote. Multiply that by 5 and write that many words.

Second test- impedimenta
Find your favorite song and look at how long it plays. Take those three numbers and write that many words.

Third test- stupefy
If your main OC is younger than 16, take their age and multiply it by 25. Write that many words. If your main OC is 16 or older than 16, take their age and multiply it by 15. Write that many words.If you successfully stupefied Fred during that practice round, you can write half as many words as you're supposed to.

Congratulations! You finished the test! Harry and all the others are very pleased to have you in Dumbledore's Army and hope you'll be around to help out for years to come. You've shown you're a master with words- I mean spells, and that when it comes to pencils- I mean wands, you're quite the performer.
