• Welcome to MA!

    Magical Awakenings, commonly referred to as MA, is a forum-based role-playing game established in the world created by J.K. Rowling and the Harry Potter series. Our site takes place in the Post-Potter world, with a slight AU twist, that allows writers to take full control over their characters and their lives.

    MA offers writers the chance to create characters in France, Norway, and the United Kingdom. Whether they are enrolled in one of the magical schools, work for the magical government, or happen to be a muggle in a magical world - it's all possible! We are a forum created for writers by writers and it's our main duty to ensure each writer has the space and tools to create!

    It is currently FALL 2024 on the forums! We have NO PROHIBITIONS on characters at this time!

We would like you to keep advertising to this board only and out of the PMs/cbox chats. As we would like you to respect the fact that we worked hard to acquire and keep the members we have here and to advertise else where or under other pretenses is just down right rude to the owners of said board you're doing so on.
