Welcome to the application post for the Animagus community at HiH! If you've been looking for an animal alter-ego that fits your personality, you've come to the right place, my friend. This post includes the answer to your burning questions and it contains the application you need to fill out to become a registered Animagus.
Please read the instructions carefully before filling out your application!
01 Before you apply:
Make sure that you're a member of both hogwartsishome and your house's common room. You do not need to be a member of hih_animagus, although we encourage you to join.
Most importantly, you need your own copies of The Standard Book of Spells, volumes 1 through 5 (who ever said becoming an Animagus was easy?).
02 How the process works:
Once you have filled out the application below, it will enter the queue. The moderators will post one batch of applications around the 1st of every month and, if necessary, a second batch will be dropped around the 15th of every month. These batches may include everything between 2 and 6 applications, depending on how the moderators choose to even out the workload that month.
When your application is up, a moderator will assign you a number and this number will be your Animagus registration number. Your application will be voted on and further directions will be given after the vote, so be sure to check hih_animagus for updates.
03 How to fill out your application:
To fill out the application, copy the code in the textarea below and paste it into a comment to this post. Fill it out as thoroughly as you can. Since other members will be trying to match you with an animal, it's important that you give as much information as you can. There are a lot of animals under the sun!
When you have answered every question add </textarea> below the application. Many people will exceed the amount of characters allowed for a comment. To solve this, you can devide your comment into as many comments as you need. Remember to add the textarea tags at the beginning and end of your posts.
Please remember to include the link to either your Currently Owned Items list or to the thread where you purchased your books.
If anyone referred you here, please remember to add Referred by: [their username](for further explenation, read under the headline "The Packmates Program" below).
Note: Your application should appear in a textarea with the coding visible, such as the one below. If it doesn't, you need to check your textarea tags.
04 The Application:
Air, Water, Earth Question Clarification - You may want to ask where fire is in this question. The answer is that this is not so much an elemental question but an environmental/habitat question. Creatures fly through the air, live on the earth, and swim in the sea, but nothing can exist in direct fire.
05 The Packmates Program
The Packmates Program is a new referral system for hih_animagus. Already registered Animagi may
If you already have an Animagus form that you feel you've outgrown, you can reapply. You can only do this if you've had your form for a minimum of 6 months. However, consider this option carefully. If you want to reapply, you need to post a minimum 200 word essay to the essay submission post saying why you don't feel connected to your animal anymore. When this has been approved, you may post a new application to the queue. When you've gotten your 4 alternatives, you can choose one of them or keep your old one. Consider this carefully, because you can only reapply once.
