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 ( Submit your own)

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.Aubrey Davis in The Under-Sofa

Don Juan Dempsey

Full Name: Don Juan Byron Dempsey

Nickname(s): There are... plenty of them, but much fewer he'd admit to. Likes to go by DJ, but most people just call him Don, Donnie, or Donnie-Juannie if you especially hate him. He's gone through periods of time in his life where Byron was the only acceptable nickname to him, but those come and go.

Birthdate: May 28, 1863

Age: 25

Occupation: The Encyclopedic Definition of Raging Hormones

Blood Status: Halfblood

Residence: Near Galway, Ireland {Elsewhere}

Hogwarts House: Gryffindor Alumnus ('81)

Wand: Ebony, 8¾ inches, Kelpie hair, Supple

Eamon Dempsey, Father [1824]
Lowri Dempsey (née -----), Mother [1836]
Ozymandias Dempsey, Brother [1856]
Endymion Dempsey, Brother [1859]
@"Porphyria Dempsey", Sister [1862]
Christabel Dempsey, Sister [1865]
Shalott Dempsey, Sister [1867]
Lycoris Dempsey, Sister [1869]
Charming but not traditionally handsome, Donnie stands at five feet, nine inches tall and has a rather thin build for his stature. He has a fair skin, a wide grin, expressive eyebrows, and a small nose. He doesn't do much to keep his dark hair looking sleek — "It'll get messy, anyways," he says — though due to the short cut and its natural waves, it rarely looks unkempt. He insists his eyes are hazel-brown, but the specks of green are rarely seen expect in direct sunlight. He wears clothes appropriate to his station, but doesn't try to look too important and dignified — best to keep the expectations low. He wields his wand with his left hand, and is prone to twirling it around in his fingers.

Bold. Doesn't understand what "no" means half the time. Man-whore. Probably should get a job. Petty. Dramatic. Goes overboard a lot. Tries his best? (Best-ish??). Fun-loving. Prone to depressive mood swings. Easily frustrated. Huge pride that needs to die. Huge asshole who doesn't actually like making people said (it's a big problem). Has soft spots for like... three people outside his family. Doesn't follow directions. Does things for the shock factor. Not very subtle. Enjoys a good time. Indulges in... everything extravagant.
Naming a child "Don Juan" was a risky decision — tempting fate is no laughing matter! — yet it is one that Eamon and Lowri make after their third-born son is born on May 28th, 1863. An overall healthy babe, Donnie makes it through his first year of life without much difficult, and is joined by a younger sister named Christabel in 1865. Two more children would join the Dempsey family before Eamon and Lowri stop rolling around in the sheets unprotected: Shalott in 1867 and Lycoris in 1869.
By this point, Donnie's parents have made their best attempt to shove their wisdom (with the help of a tutor, of course) down their son's throat, but Donnie proves determined to learn through experience, which mostly consists of putting himself into situations he shouldn't be in and picking up a book out of spite — usually when someone teases him that he doesn't know how to read.

He isn't stupid, though, and eventually does come around to behaving in the presence of his tutor. With the knowledge of his own siblings' literary names, he's far more inclined to explore the etymology of his own name, though at the age of nine (1872) doesn't quite grasp the story of Don Juan in a way that an adult would. He equates the literary libertine to a rebel at best, or someone who disregards society's expectations.

In 1873, at the young age of ten, Donnie became of the real, living (well, dead at that point, but he had lived) man whose works inspired his name: Lord Byron. Research into the man's history and literary masterpieces brought out the academic side everyone assumed was hiding deep within his thick skull, and within months Donnie officially declared the author of his namesake his idol.
Hogwarts: Intro Years
Unfortunately, this academic side is not enough to see him sorted into Ravenclaw when he goes off to school in 1874, and he is instead shuffled into the house of the rambunctious and the: Gryffindor. While he's definitely well-suited to the house, it doesn't offer the best role models in the school. As such, he finds himself enamored with ideas he probably shouldn't bee: rebellion, rule-breaking, tomfoolery, and once even stealing a kiss from an unsuspecting third year girl who was tutoring him. Oops.

Most of his friend group is full of similarly-rambunctious boy, but the ever unconventional Donnie finds himself with a few close female friends — and notably, ones that he respects far more than others of the fairer sex. These ladies are usually unconventional in their own ways, but not improper, and as he ages he's forced to fight the urges to change that.

He tries out for quidditch in his second year (1875), but decides after failing that there's no point in... trying again. As such, any hopes of making the quidditch team vanish into thin air, and he never revisits them again.

Hogwarts: OWL Years
Third year comes in 1876, and Donnie is dismayed that he's forced to add another class to his schedule. Because of his family's fascination with muggle literature, it doesn't surprised many that the class he does add is Muggle Studies. He does well in the class — it even becomes his favorite for a while! — but then it too gets boring when they're not reviewing topics that Donnie finds captivating.

Fourth year (1877) is notable for the fall after the muggles riot, but living outside of Britain (and the city, for that matter) means the Dempsey family gets to avoid most of that fallout. After going through summer of puberty-induced growth spurts and voice changes, he manages to lose his virginity during a Hogsmeade weekend. Fortunately for both he and the sixth year girl he's managed to seduce, neither of them get caught.

His OWLs comes in 1879 at the end of his fifth year, and he doesn't do awfully, despite many having predicted he would. In hindsight, it's clear he performed well out of spite. He does anything to spite people.

Hogwarts: NEWT Years
Sixth year (1879) means he has to pick his NEWT courses, and with mostly passing grades to choose form, he selects four he thinks he'll do well enough in: Muggle Studies, Defence Against the Dark Arts, Astronomy, and Herbology. Apparently those classes as a whole leave Donnie with a light enough course load to get himself in a shit-ton of trouble, as during a Hogsmeade weekend he manages to sleep with a whore and... impregnate her, though he burned the letter he wrote her. This is less out of fear of society's reaction and more out of fear of Hogwarts' reaction. He thinks she kept the kid, but decides not to ponder on it.

He takes his man-whoring to a whole new extreme during the summer of 1880, and unfortunately a number of people close to him are very aware of his fact. Some tease him about his name — even calling him "Donnie Juannie", those assholes — prompting him to declare himself Byron. Except no one really listens except his more thoughtful siblings. Everyone else can die. With a dagger to the ribs.

His seventh year is not very notable in the grand scheme of things (except maybe a few detentions, a failed attempt at a "senior prank"-style prank, and some stolen kisses), except for his NEWT examinations which he takes in 1881. He attends to Hogwarts Coming Out Ball to support his female friends, and then proceeds to go to the local pub and get drunk off his ass. Thus, he begins the life of over-indulgence and extravagance.

Okay, so the adult life doesn't really have much to offer him. As the third-born son in the family, it's generally expected that he find some way to make a living because Mom & Pops won't always be around to let him lounge around in his bedroom during the day and run off to have fun in the evenings.

The summer of 1881 brings his first job: an employee in the Department of Magical Games and Sports. How did it go? Let's just say he doesn't really cite it as his real first job. (He only lasted a week after letting some very important paperwork pile up. #Whoops.) Assuming any hope at a flourishing Ministry career is gone from the get go, he goes off to work at the library. That goes well for about two months — except, after being reported for telling a guest to bugger off when he's reading on the job, he gets fired.

Time goes by, he fucks up some more, and by 1884 he's worked in seven different places and has a solid reputation as a kid who can't hold a job for nothing. With a blasé shrug, he returns to his bedroom (and other peoples' bedrooms, mostly whores', in the evenings) and parties it up during the daytime. Fewer invitations for him come as time passes, but he's never passed up the opportunity to crash a party when the opportunity arises — and the thrill of being chased out is so fun!

He... unfortunately manages to make what he considers one of his biggest fuck-ups when he drunkenly sleeps with and impregnates one of his female friends — (you know, the ones he's always respected more then normal women) — in 1886 and can't find the balls to marry her. He doesn't really have the money to support her, either, but luckily her parents send her off to France to live with some Great-Aunt (or at least he hopes they do instead of secretly offing her, no matter what a Dramatic story that might make).

"Shaping up" really isn't in his vocabulary, and thus, after a few months of mourning that friendship, he finds himself at the party scene once more, flirting with pretty girls and running off to bed with whores. By 1887, lots of his friends have bets on when he'll either (1) contract some sort of sexually-transmitted disease and die A Most Painful Death, (2) get publicly named as the "Don Juan" (ha) who ruined some poor and be forced to marry her, or (3) actually fall in love on his own and settle down. (The latter, he says, is nearly impossible, for that would require at least the facade of exclusivity!)

For now, though (1888), he's just... well, what is he doing?
❧ He's a well-known flirt in society, though is generally assumed to be harmless.

❧ He doesn't have a job, nor is he very enthusiastic of getting one.
❧ He's been involved with (formerly?) reputable young ladies, and has been cited as a reason to their downfalls.

❧ His family is full of eccentrics, with his parents being notable Romantic poets.

❧ Despite his toxic "masculine" behavior at times, he's very close friends with a number of women, which contributes to his general ~oddness~.
❧ He's the father of multiple bastards (#whoops).

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.
