Did you know?

The Language of the Flowers was a popular method to express feelings where words might be improper, but did you know other means of doing so? Some ladies used their parasols, as well as their fans, gloves, and hankies to flirt with a gentleman (or alternatively, tell them to shove it!). — Bree

Ester Montgomery for Thomas Montgomery. The one that got away (with the pornographer...)
This boy, then. He wasn't new. Wasn't one of the worst people in the common room, those rotten rich boys - like Mr. Jailkeeper - who could not fathom a world beyond their own farts. Was a good working class lad, so he'd heard. Had a bit of a weird looking face, and a bit of a weird thing for preaching. Still.

Cameron Gillenwater

Full Name: Cameron Gillenwater

Nickname(s): Cammie

Birthdate: May 23, 1875

Age: 13

Occupation: Third Year; Chaser

Blood Status: Muggleborn

Residence: Godric's Hollow

Hogwarts House: Gryffindor

Wand: Ash, 11 inches, Phoenix feather, Supple

Martin Gillenwater, Father [1841-1880]
Annie Gillenwater (née -----), Mother [1855]
Greta Gillenwater, Sister [1878]
Cameron has always been slightly tall for his age, standing a little over five feet, two inches tall. He has medium brown hair, murky blue eyes, and a nose that's a tad too large for his face. His complexion is fair, though often covered in whatever cuts and bruises he's gotten from roughhousing or quidditch-playing.

When it comes to his outfits, the quality of his fabrics is often better than style; he hasn't yet reached a point where he cares about making a good impression. He writes and wields his wand with his left hand.

    ❧ He often struggles with his classes that involve heavy reading, but does well in practical classes—such as DADA—where he can scrape by with natural ability.

    ❧ Despite his newfound passion for professional quidditch, he has yet to pick a team to support.
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. His budding friendship with a number of the girls in the year below him eventually does, however, turn this resentment into fun.

1888 | The fog invasion in Hogsmeade leaves a sullen Cameron stuck in Godric's Hollow with little contact with the magical community, save for a few letters and time spent with Maddy Bell, his fellow Gryffindor team-mate and Godric's Hollow neighbor. With the conclusion of his second year, he decides to pursue three electives come the new year: Care of Magical Creatures, Ancient Runes, and Divination.
❧ He is a chaser on the Gryffindor quidditch team.

❧ He's fairly outspoken about his belief in blood equality.

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.

Some of these are definitely bigger than single-thread plots, and it might be best to run some of these through staff, but my 6am brain is cranking out ideas and I must post them somewhere Tongue

<ul><li>Book Club meetings get intense, ending in a number of students receiving detentions for sneaking into the Restricted Section without a pass in search of new—and forbidden—knowledge to share.
<li>Struggling students form a study group. They grow. They achieve. They pass their damn exams and build friendships along the way.
<li>Student attempts to blackmail professor. It works...at first.
<li>A number of students wake up in the Hospital Wing. They have no memory of what happened to cause them to end up there.
<li>The bottom level of Hogwarts (i.e. dungeons, etc.) is flooded, leaving the Hufflepuffs and Slytherins to bunk with the Ravenclaws and Gryffindors.
<li>Poor attempts at an atmospheric charms lead to a raging, magical thunderstorm over Hogwarts that tampers with professors’ and students’ magic.
<li>A magical bug invades the halls of Hogwarts, leading students to act out of character and forget basic details about themselves. In turn, this leads to students believing that their friends are being kidnapped—and replaced!—by imposters.
<li>Fight-turns-accidental-death leading to a series of lies, pointed fingers, and blackmail.
<li>Student searches through whatever Hogwarts records they can find at the school to answer questions about family secrets.
<li>Student goes missing during a quidditch match.
<li>(Possibly illegal?) potion brewing ring. Soothing draughts, pepperup potions, etc.—all sold and traded from the comfort of the common rooms UNTIL one ill-brewed potion threatens to collapse the entire operation.
<li>Student’s diary is stolen. They wake up to find their secrets circulating.
