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.

Inès Valentine
PROFILE

Full Name: Inès Valentine

Nickname(s):

Birthdate: August 3rd, 1862

Age: 26

Occupation: Prophetic Matchmaker

Blood Status: Halfblood

Residence: With a friend/former client in Swallowbury

Hogwarts House:

Wand: Laurel, 10¾ inches, with a siren’s hair core. Swishy. Her wand belonged to her late mother, and is really more for show than anything, as Inès never learned more than the most basic spells.

Family:
None she discusses at any particular length.
APPEARANCE
Hers is a lithe build, curve provided almost entirely by her attire. Standing at five feet, six inches, Inès is a tall woman who favours bolder, jewel tones, which stand out well against her copper complexion. Her dark hair forms natural ringlets, and she inherited her mother’s deep brown eyes and full lips. She is naturally right handed, but near ambidextrous by training.

PERSONALITY
DRAMATIC — FLIRTATIOUS — CHARISMATIC — AMBITIOUS — VIVACIOUS — CLEVER
OTHER
The Sight: Inès is a genuine seer who occasionally makes prophecies and is particularly skillful at reading tarot cards and crystal balls, but finds all other methods of divination to be ridiculous at best. She has, however, been known to fudge details and stretch the truth when she deems it necessary.

Languages: Inès is fluent in Arabic and Portuguese because of her Moroccan upbringing. She is proficient in English, though speaks with a hefty accent and avoids ~deep conversation.

Hobbies & Skills: When not using her special skill, Inès has a lovely singing voice and enjoys playing cards.

HISTORY
Inès does not speak overmuch about her upbringing. She was born and brought up in Tangier. Her father did something in shipping and her mother was a seamstress, and she lost all but an elder sister and her father to sickness when she was young. Formal schooling was something that escaped her entirely due to funding. She was six when her instincts about those around her began to prove true, and ten when her father realized he could monetize this to his benefit. Valentine is not her real surname, rather, one she adopted once she started to truly sell her brand.

Inès worked in Tangier throughout her teenaged years, and became particularly noteworthy for her ability to make good romantic matches—though sometimes her predicted pairings had social or financial barriers that would make being with one another nearly impossible. Over time, she proved so popular in the right circles that she was able to finance a move to the middle class for herself and her father—the rest of her family having largely perished by then. In spite of her interest in finding The One for those around her, Inès herself would do little more than flirt with the men around her, believing that if she did not See herself with a particular gentleman, then he was not the right match.

In 1885, she befriended Miss ----- Bunting, daughter of a British diplomat. The two immediately hit it off, and their bond only deepened when Inès was able to match ----- with the man who proved to be the love of her life. Thus, Miss Bunting became Mrs. Abbott, and it was teary-eyed that Inès said goodbye to her best friend two years later. That same friend would, in 1888, arrange passage for the seer to Britain, just in time for the season.

GOT A NEW THREAD FOR ME?

❧ I am almost always down for throwing characters together if you have some sort of 'hook' for me because...

❧ I don't care for "meet & greet" threads and if I find myself in one, am prone to causing explosions.

❧ For planned (non-open) threads, I prefer to have a vague idea of setting and potential goals, but the the understanding that those goals may not come to pass—characters can be dicks that way ;)

I do not pre-plan romance. Even if my character is happily married, there should always be the understanding that this can change!

I prefer fade-to-black for sexual situations. I don't have anything against smut per se, but I would rather write no smut than bad smut!

❧ I am a teacher who also volunteers with young children. Pedophilia and student-professor relationships are firm no-go areas for me.

❧ My posts typically range in length from 100 to 300 words. They will sometimes be longer and sometimes shorter, depending on what the thread demands.

❧ Please give me a heads up if you intend on anything that can damage my character's reputation or send them into mourning!
