Did you know?

Fern-hunting parties became popular, allowing young women to get outside in a seemingly innocuous pursuit with less rigid oversight and chaperoning than they saw in parlors and drawing rooms. They may have even had the occasional romantic meetup with a similarly fern-impassioned beau. — Bree

Now that he had walked up to them, he couldn't exactly whirl around and get going. That would be rude. And was not, presumably, how straight men seduced their future wives.

Cameron Gillenwater

Full Name: Cameron Gillenwater

Nickname(s): Cammie

Birthdate: May 23, 1875

Age: 13

Occupation: Hogwarts Student; Chaser

Blood Status: Muggleborn

Residence: Godric's Hollow

Hogwarts House: Gryffindor

Wand: Ash, 11 inches, Phoenix feather, Supple

Martin Gillenwater, Father [muggle, 1841-1880]
Annie ----- (née -----, formerly Gillenwater), Mother [muggle, 1855]
Greta Gillenwater, Sister [muggle, 1878]
Despite still being well within his pre-pubescent years, Cameron has steadily grown at a faster rate than most boys his age (a fact that often makes him beam with pride, especially when standing next to the shorter boys!). He has a generally thin frame that will undoubtedly gain lean muscle in the years to come with his level of activity. He has a fair, almost peachy complexion that now and then suffers from cuts, bruises, scrapes, and grass burns, but has yet to suffer any permanent damage to his skin. He normally wears his school or quidditch robes, but can every now and then be found donning muggle attire. He is left-handed.


Notable elements of his personality:

Troublemaker | While he usually doesn't mean to get himself into trouble, it still happens that way. His curious nature (and not to mention his desire to impress those around him) fuels his natural propensity to get into mischief, which has on many occasions gotten him locked up in detention. While he's more or less learning how he should act at school, he every now and then slips up and gets himself a slap on the wrist.

Despite having heard of boggarts, he hasn't yet had the displeasure of running into one himself!

As a small youth, he cannot conjure one yet.

As a muggleborn student, Cameron's chance to use magical transportation has been limited. This, however, will likely change throughout the summer with the addition of a magical step-father and step-siblings in his home.

His romantic experience is limited to kiddie crushes on girls around his age, but there's no telling how his romance life will shape up to be!

Skills & Misc. Info
Cameron is a mischief-maker, and despite his penchant for Defence Against the Dark Arts, has always struggled to get his assignments turned in on time. He does keep himself afloat, though; the idea of not finishing Hogwarts is both a frightening and dreadful one.
1875 | Cameron is born the first child of Martin and Annie Gillenwater. While often left in the care of a nanny during the nighttime hours, his mother takes more of an active role during the day. His father, the local physician and a part-time literature tutor, is often absent, yet not unloving by any means.

1878 | Cameron is left feeling both hurt and confused when a new baby — a girl — joins the Gillenwater household. His mother, who oftentimes spent the long days doting on her only son, is instead preoccupied by the new infant. Knowing that his mother's love must be shared isn't something he takes to easily; tantrums definitely ensue.

1880 | Cameron's father perishes after becoming infected at his own practice, leaving the family with financial difficulties. Cameron and his family temporarily move into the home of his mother's eldest sister, leaving his mother with time and resources to secure a position of her own. She eventually becomes the governess of a nearby wealthy family, and Cameron and his sister spend their time under the watchful eye of his aunt.

1881 | An argument ensues between Cameron's mother and aunt after Greta accidentally called their aunt "Mummy" while their actual mother is in the room. Upset and overwhelmed by the yelling, Cameron shatters a set of china in dining room, marking his first sign of magic.

1886 | Cameron receives his Hogwarts acceptance letter, shocking the entire family (except for perhaps Cameron himself, who had always been aware of hid oddities!). When his mother takes him to Diagon Alley, she meets a gentleman — but that's about as much as he remembers at the time. After purchasing his supplies and packing his trunk, it's his time to go off to school! When it's announced that the Sorting Hat had been stolen, Cameron, a muggleborn, thinks little of it. He's temp!sorted into Gryffindor, where he makes his home, and when the hat is found, he remains there after the official sorting.

1887 | When September rolls around, Cameron is eager to return to school! He makes the quidditch team as a chaser — and in his second year, too! Sadly, his feelings of being special are dampened when a bunch of first years manage to score a spot on the team, too. Boo. Later that autumn, his mother announces that she's engaged — and to the wizard she'd met in Diagon Alley during his first year. Ugh.

1888 | Cameron's mother marries, which is just awful. He enjoyed being the "special" one in the family, and is now joined by magical step-siblings who have already experienced the wizarding world longer than he!

Plot Preferences:
❧ I value communication over anything else, as a lack of communication breeds (unwanted) tension! As such, if you wish for a certain outcome you can't reach without me or my character cooperating, please let me know! I can generally find ways for my characters to reach certain points while keeping true to their personalities.

❧ I prefer faster-paced threads, as some of my character's plot-lines move quickly enough to where the outcome may make no difference if it takes too long. I tend to respond quickly; if you feel I'm taking too long, don't hesitate to nudge me!

❧ I generally prefer organic development to pre-plotting, except, of course, in the case of plottable adoptables and other plots that have a needed outcome.

❧ My post length varies based on a number of factors, including but not limited to: length of post I'm given to work with, muse for the character, and plot-importance.

❧ Concerning mature threads, I'm perfectly alright with swearing and violence, though will write smut only if it's required to further character or plot development.

❧ I'm perfectly fine with basic god-modding actions (i.e. your character leading mine somewhere, touches, etc.), but prefer control in most other situations. If you have a question, just ask! I won't bite ;)

❧ Unless important for plot development, I generally prefer not to be in basic meet-and-greet threads. If conversation between characters turn idle, I'm prone to creating sinkholes. Seriously.
