    Well we're ignoring the One School For the Continent thing, and I like the idea of folding Ilvermorny into the new England prep school. Though my idea of Ilvermorny also borrows a lot from the idea of a school where all the textbooks are preapproved by the old guard purebloods who have no idea what they are talking about and have never done any primary source research into topics, and that doesn't fit with my experience of prep schools (though I admit I went to a weird one.)

    Yeah my idea for New England School/Ilvermorny is "was set up by colonial wizards and probably has a downright horrific history."
    I think there's a bunch of small, local schools that aren't boarding schools? And then there's five or so big boarding schools. Is SCA the oldest?
    (Also, between the boarding schools is there something like the Triwizard Tournament?)

    ...knowing new England prep schools I think some schools would explode if they had to wait YEARS to compete against other schools.

    Actually, that might be a neat plot to do? Students from Ilvermorny and hogwarts come by to compete with the SCA kids.

    Yep. It's like the first day of class for newbies except for weeks, and multiplied by 10.

    All of the older students hate the Ilvermorny kids with a FIERY BURNING PASSION. The Headmaster thinks it's all goodnatured fun. The newbies are just. confused.

    So I think we've kind of gotten done with the "getting there" phase of the story, unless there is anyone who wants to join, we could have a late bus?
    Avery and Moss have moved inside, idk what other shenanigans anyone else wants to get into. Let's explore and learn some magic and shit.

    So, rereading right now, but have not found it yet.
    I thought there was a private sorting ceremony, like, hat tells you your house, but it isn't in front of the entire school. And then you can choose one, have it solidly down on paper, but mosey around and talk to various houses, and then re-sort three years later if you desire

    (also, just thinking now, if it Wasn't a Hat, but instead something weird and powerful about the room?)

    ...that said, if i find something that lays out the process for sure, I'll quote it here

    everything i could find!




    Separate thing: School Coat of Arms. spin on initials SCA? all the houses? a great eldritch being erupting from a lake? I think at some point the school colors were sage green and tan
    (Ok real talk, I wanted to make tshirts on cafepress for each house, too. Because I'm an ADULT)
