PostSubject: The Storyline   Sat Nov 19, 2011 7:56 pm

Okay, so this part is pretty vital. I have a pretty good idea of what is going to happen, the key now is to get it done in writing.

Basically what is going to happen is this:
A man working for the Ministry of Magic and refuses to keep working after Scrimgeour is murdered because he knows that means the Ministry is no longer safe. Once he gave his leaving notice several Death Eaters threaten him with the safety of his family if he doesn't stay. In a desperate act, he sends his wife and daughter to live in America so they'll be safe. His daughter, (insert creative name here), a would have been Seventh Year at Hogwarts, transfers to The Northwest Institute of Magic, after several attacks have been reported at The Salem Witches Institute and her mother refused to send her there. It's a very nontraditional school of magic disguised as an average highschool. Basically, the story follows the girl as she makes the transfer into the new school. One of the teachers ends up being a Death Eater who is trying to recruit more followers, that and Voldy didn't want any of the other schools of Magic trying to send aide as her stormed Hogwarts. Anyways one or, even perhaps two of the teachers are Death Eaters and reports back to those in the UK throughout the series. The girl finds out about this and tells her Mother and then something else happens but I dunno what that is.... lol I want there to be some extremely 'out there' plot twists.. I just haven't figured out what yet. :l this would be when you guys go in and refine the storyline and give it an ending. Please, suggest things.

Since everyone thinks Northwest looks like a prison anyways, what if it is disguised as juvie? That way parents won't try to send their kids there. If its disguised as an average high school, then you'll have Muggles always bothering them to try and register their kid.
Is NIM going to follow the same year system as Hogwarts (it probably should, there's no reason to reinvent the system)?
We should make NIM shirts Smile Just saying Smile I would pay big money for one Smile
What if not only was one of the teachers a death eater, but a kid too?

Although kind of cliche, at the very end we could have the battle of Northwest, where Voldemort comes to claim this girl. But, instead of losing, he could win, and that would be the end of NIM. BRAIN BLAST! The Northwest Institute of Magic is in its first year of being a school! Its a new experiment for a magic school, because the wizards of America wanted a school on the west coast too. But then Voldemort destroys it.

Should we stick to house A and house B as far as houses go? Or should we have 4 and make them up? Or should we have more?

As far as a name goes, I think we should develop the character before we give her a name, because I find it interesting when their names match who they are. Rowling did that with McGonagall and Mundungus Fletcher, as well as several others.

LOL It could be a private school. xD I dunno but as juvie seems a little hard since we now have huge panted emblems all over the damn campus. I dunno yet;
It could only be open a year.
I'm not breaking it into houses because in America our schools typically aren't run that way; you have to remember that the reason why a lot of things in Harry Potter are the way they are, is simply because that's how it is in England. So...everything in this will be like it would regularly be, they just use magic.
And we can't have Voldemort in it physically because I DOUBT Ralph Fiennes will come all the way here to film xD I'm not doing anything with the characters actually in the books as far as appearances go. And I want to try and keep the amount of special FX to a minimum. I am just learning how to do Adobe motion editing and stuff. I'll have to go beg Justin to help me edit.

I planned on their school colours being Teal and Dark Brown BUT since our school is black and red it may just do that. However, I will probably make shirts and posters to put in the rooms we film in.

well, we could still do the battle of Northwest and mention Voldemort but never actually show Voldemort...but that would be kinda lame. i see where you're coming from
why could it only be open for 1 year?
ooooh okay. would it still be a boarding school, though?

I don't really wanna do a large drawn out battle. I mean, a few death eaters wouldnt cause that large of a problem. I mean, there'd be fights but nothing huge.
You just said that i could be in your previous post.

And no, it's not a boarding school that would be IMPOSSIBLE to do.

you're right, too many references to things we can't produce

and i was under the assumption that before i said that NIM would only be open for one year that we were going with that it had been open years previously
