I'm dropping Siegfried and Leon, due to circumstances that are (mostly) beyond my control. I may come back, but as of now, I highly doubt it.

I loved this game during the short time I played in it, and I'm sorry it's come to this.

New Character!

Everyone, please give a warm welcome to [info]no__angel, played by WIllow, and add her to your IC f-lists. ♥

Reposted because I fail and put this in the wrong place.

an apparant iJay instability

I've never experienced "comment rot" before on iJay. But after what happened with [info]academician's entry it doesn't matter if this (comments completely disappearing)is something that happens, frequently or not.

I suggest everyone backup their journals using LJ-Archive and the mods back up the main comm with same.

PLAYERS, tell us what you think!

Currently, we have FOUR fantastic plot ideas and of course, we want your input on them.

Comments are screened, so please comment with your pick of the plot ideas as well as any critiques you have on them, or any plot suggestions you have or would like to see. Be as honest as you like, the results won't be visible to anyone except the mods and we promise not to take umbrage at anything you say.

1) Something like the Model UN except for the wizarding schools, so International Conference of Wizards in miniature.
2) Exchange program with Portkeys set up in the schools so that students can study their favorite programs under other Professors.
3) Summer camp, complete with awesome crazy activities to bond the students together!
4) A foreign relations class, compulsory for all older students, which meets at set intervals in a neutral place and has students studying together from all four schools.

All of those would obviously need chaperons, so the teachers can jump in there.

Contact Info please!

Comment here with your contact details!

People who already have their info up there are Kristin, Ash, Dark, Fickle and Flight. Edit: And now Zoe!

Apart from that, good work on the activity. Drag other people into the intricate crossover weirdness of BiM! And remember, above all else, kill the ducks have fun!




I play Lex Luthor in my spare time. He's the Beauxbatons Potions Master.

I like the colour purple but prefer blue. Batman Reigns Supreme. I answer to Lex-mun. I'm sort of a misanthrope. And I am owned by a cat that often attempts to distract me from the computer.

2 new characters!

Two announcements.

1) You guys are AWESOME. But that's not much of an announcement since you already know that.

2) We now have a Lily Evans ([info]light_your_way) from Harry Potter and Lex Luthor ([info]theriac) from Smallville joining us in the game! Ash, the wickedly cool player behind Lucius, is taking up Lily and Willow the lickably likeable is going to be playing Lex.

Please friend them both! And don't forget, you can go here to friend all the chars at once.

Being that it is March 14th, the game has now started. Not that some of our players haven't noticed. ♥ Sorry about the delay; we were working on ways to improve this place and trying to work out bugs before we opened up.

Have fun!

Applications are now OPEN.
Things you will need for your application )

World Setting


Welcome to the wonderful world of Harry Potter -- during the Marauder's Era.

All canon chars that existed during that era still exist in the game. However, some tweaking of backstory is allowed -- for example, if you want to play Salazar Slytherin, you can have him emerge from some secret chamber in the castle where he'd locked himself up instead of dying. Just run that by the mods in your applications.

For chars from other canons, simply translate the backstory of your char. Say that your character is a child of a rich family with a businessman father and a mother who killed herself when your char was young. Turn the business into something Wizard-like such as Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Sweets, and you can still keep the basic personality and story the same. Or say that your char comes from the Muggle world and is a Muggle Born if you don't want to have to integrate the backstory for the Wizarding world.

The exception to that is if your char comes from the future, or a point in a timeline where the technology and society is more advanced than Muggle society in the Marauder's era. Then we ask that you make sure that your backstory and char will be time-appropriate meaning no char that comes from a family that earned a fortune making hoverboards, or a char with bionic arm implants.


The journals are being given out as part of a project to encourage cooperation and friendships between schools. Originally, it was only a test group of Hogwarts, Beauxbatons, Durmstrang and Salem Witches Institute that had the journals but they started such a craze that the makers of the journals mass-produced them so they are now available to any member of the public that wants one.

In fact, they're so stylish and useful that practically everyone has one. Like laptops, in a way, but much cheaper. You can ward entries to yourself only, or to certain people, and if you want, you can mark entries as having been warded weakly enough that the ward fails and other people end up seeing it.

Obviously, the icons used in entries cannot be seen ICly. Based on that, we recommend having the bulk of your character's icons be of your character. Even though this is an HP-based game, we do not require crossover chars to have PBs. If your char comes from an anime or manga, you can use images from that instead. If your char comes from a book, you'll need either artist's illustrations or to choose a PB. If you're playing someone from the HPverse itself, we encourage you to use the movie equivalent unless you have a preference for a different PB, which is fine.

If you're having trouble with any of this, hit one of the mods up! We're always glad to help. Simply drop us a comment in this post with your question or e-mail us at born.mods at gmail dot com.
