First names were most often used by childhood or school friends. If the friendship was made after school age, first names would only really be used by women. Men were far more likely to refer to their friends by their surnames, a mark of familiarity. — Documentation

Emilia Wright for Jude Wright. Casually alienating offspring since 18882.
Separating was also not a great idea, though they weren't doing great at staying together anyway. If she were to volunteer to be the human sacrifice.. well... Hogsmeade had plenty of debutantes anyway...

Handsome is decidedly average in almost every way, save for the boyish charm to his features that remains even as he reaches adulthood. He stands at an unimpressive five feet, eight inches tall and has an overall average build (save for his toned arms from quidditch). He has chestnut brown hair and similar-colored eyes; a wide, dimpled smile; a soft, rounded face; and his distinctly long nose.

He's never cared much for fashion, though never dresses beneath his means. He carries himself with confidence and has a tendency to busy his hands or rock back and forth on his heels when bored. He is left-handed.

Loyal. Easygoing. Amiable. Judgmental. Directionless. Athletic. Impressionable. Irresponsible.
    ❧ Handsome never learned to cast a patronus.

    ❧ He was once fluent in both French and Italian, but his ability has suffered due to disuse.

    ❧ His "type" has traditionally been WC girls and blondes, but he now avoids the former.

    ❧ He suffers from undiagnosed bipolar depression, and has less-than-healthy ways (read: alcohol) of coping with it.

1869 | As the year comes to an end, so does the pregnancy of Hattie Whitledge. On the eve of December 29th, she gives birth to twins: a boy she names Handsome and a girl she names Cupcake. While her husband complains about the "outlandish" names, her persistence eventually wears him down.

1870 | Pumpkin, the third child born into Handsome's family, enters the world. Seeing as Handsome is less than a year old, her birth is irrelevant to him at the time.

1871 | Hattie gives birth to another child, this time a single girl named Sweetie. At less than two years of age, Handsome barely recognizes the significance of another child in the house.

1873 | After his mother gives birth to another girl, Handsome, now three years of age, understands that there is another soul to share attention with. Though not necessarily cranky, he gets frustrated when not given the center of attention at certain times.

1874 | After having pondered on the possibility of gaining a brother throughout the duration of his mother's pregnancy, it's unsurprising that the birth of another sister is met with disappointment. Though upset at first, the four-year-old doesn't shy away from showing his new sister Honey attention when permitted.

1875 | Cupcake shows her first sign of magic. While this is celebrated in the Whitledge household, Handsome cannot help but feel inadequate—despite his father's assurances that his time will come—compared to his twin. He ventures to discover his own first sign of magic, getting into trouble on more than one occasion for trying to force it out of himself.

1877 | The muggle community discovers magic, leading to the Whitledge family to settle into Hogsmeade alongside many of the other magical families. While the sudden move is met with anxiety on Handsome's part, it soon disappears when he realizes everyone around him is also magical. However, it does nothing to soothe his fears that he'll end up a squib.

1879 | Finally, at nine years of age, Handsome's first sign of magic makes an appearance.

1881 | Handsome and his sister receive their acceptance letters to Hogwarts and are shipped off to school in September. His first year is characterized by an intense focus on school work. While he does involve himself in the Leisure Sports Club and Dueling Club, he doesn't hesitate to skip meetings if they interfere with his homework.

1882 | Pumpkin joins Handsome and Cupcake at Hogwarts. Unlike them, however, she is sorted into Ravenclaw (which seems fake but ok).

1883 | Handsome begins his third year and adds Ghoul Studies, Care of Magical Creatures, and Muggle Studies to his schedule. Sweetie also joins them at Hogwarts, but is sorted into Slytherin. He's now taking bets that Darling will be a Hufflepuff.

1884 | The year seems to be going well until tragedy strikes: Handsome's father dies from the laughing plague. After that, on top of the fire that ravages Wellingtonshire in the weeks following, Handsome's mother makes a sudden decision to move the family to the nearby village of Irvingly. Darling begins Hogwarts and is sorted into Hufflepuff, which means the Whitledge family has now invaded all four Hogwarts houses.

1885 | Handsome is named Gryffindor prefect.

Spring, 1886 | Handsome befriends another girl in his year named Madeleine Backus. While their gender and social classes make them an unlikely pairing, the two's personalities mesh well and their interests align. In May, he sits for his OWL examinations.

Summer, 1886 | Over the summer, his mother returns to society after two years of mourning and decides to pursue the healing career she'd put off after marrying. While happy that his mother no longer spends the days drowning in her own sorrows, he doesn't appreciate her decision to seemingly abandon her children.

Autumn, 1886 | The school year starts off with the Sorting Hat getting stolen, which means Honey's sorting is postponed for a solid week. However, when the sorting ceremony finally does commence, she joins Darling in Hufflepuff. Handsome continues his education with Charms, Defence Against the Dark Arts, Herbology, Potions, Transfiguration, and Care of Magical Creatures.

June, 1887 | After his sister instigates a fight with Maddie, Handsome comes to terms with his emotions. Sadly, it proves to be only the beginning of his despair.

July, 1887 | When the Wizarding World Market tragedy takes place, the Whitledge siblings learn that their mother was in the middle of the disaster site. He and his siblings are orphaned, and such a blow leads Handsome spiraling into depression. Alcohol because his choice of coping mechanism, which further leads to him isolating himself from his family out of shame. On a brighter note, he and Maddie do confess their feelings, though do go long periods of time without contacting one another. It is only upon receiving his school letter—his head boy badge included—that he finds the willpower to move forward.

Winter, 1887 | Handsome remains at school for the holidays instead of returning home. Not only does it mean he's spending Christmas by himself, but also his eighteenth birthday.

1888 | Handsome graduates from Hogwarts after taking his NEWTs and makes the decision with his best friend, Mundungus MacFusty, to join the Hogsmeade Howlers. After the magic-inhibiting fog invades Hogsmeade, Handsome leaves to stay in London for the summer with the hopes that it will offer a temporary escape. Things get worse, however, when he receives news of his grandmother's death by carriage, leaving him with absolutely responsibility of his five siblings and a reemergence of his alcoholism.
❧ The Whitledge family is considered eccentric due to the odd names their mother gave them.

❧ Handsome is an orphan, having lost his father to the laughing plague in 1884 and his mother to the Wizard World Market disaster in 1886. He lived with his grandmother until June of 1888, when she was struck and killed by a carriage in Wellingtonshire in the middle of the magic-inhibiting fog.

❧ Handsome was the Head Boy at Hogwarts, as well as a keeper on the Gryffindor quidditch team between his 6th-7th year.

❧ He is the legal guardian of his five younger sisters.
❧ He's a rumored alcoholic.

❧ His closest friends are below him on the social ladder.

❧ Of the ongoing drama in his immediate family. You definitely know this if he considers you a friend since he's prone to venting.
❧ Of his previous romantic involvement with Madeleine Backus....and Emmeline Woodcroft...and sort of Katherine Midford. (He's a wreck.)

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.
