    In Character Developments

    February 1887: At the Aphrodite Ball, Reuben made out with some girl named Brighid and might have ended up ruining her life. He did apologize, but this does not endear him to Olivia Pendergast at the Pendergast School of Young Roses, where she is enrolled. Ben also ran into his old friend/fling, Una Walsh, who made it clear she did not want to be friends any more.

    March 1887: Ben ran into another old friend/fling, Angie Swan, who was much more amenable to continuing to be friendly and by friendly, we mean they're going to keep boning. He had a very dramatic fight with Una and made her cry at a ball. He also badgered Antigone Lestrange to dance with him on a wager. Continuing to make excellent life decisions, Reuben spent the end of March accidentally kidnapping Ellory Pendergast by not warning her not to grab his portkey which sadly is not a euphemism.

    April 1887: Ben rescued Ellory Pendergast from Mexico, but her mother was still not amused by the ordeal. Actually, no one seemed amused except Ellory. He comes down with a magical illness he caught in Mexico (which he also gives to his brother Roman #whoops), then has the pleasure of being vomited on by a very drunken Ellory Pendergast. He takes a flying carpet to her windowsill to try and comfort her also not a euphemism but they end up parting on a sour note.

    Head Canons

    Ben has a thing for sassy redheads, but tells people he prefers buxom blondes with no brains because he thinks that's more mainstream.

    Roman and Reuben are both very alergic to cat hair/dander, but oddly enough have no problem with kneazles.

    Ben bought himself a broomstick as a graduation gift, and has used the same one ever since. Her name is Adelaide and they've been through a lot together.

    If it wasn't for the 'unfortunate incident with a thunderbird' which resulted in his first wand breaking in 1883, Ben never would have met Una Walsh; he only struck up a conversation with her father because he was desperately soliciting directions to the nearest wand shop.

    Lynn's Goals

    Thread with every redheaded woman on the board.

    Get Reuben into the sort of trouble his brothers have to bail him out of.
