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

Marmaduke Warbeck
PROFILE

Full Name: Marmaduke Honour Warbeck

Nickname(s): Duke

Birthdate: February 21st, 1863

Age: 25

Occupation: N.E.W.T. Examiner

Blood Status: Halfblood

Residence: Wales

Hogwarts House: Ravenclaw

Wand: Rosewood, 12", flexible, phoenix hackle feather

Family: Father: Cedric Warbeck (1823) Mother: Dulcibella Warbeck née ----- (1831) Sister: Favoretta ----- née Warbeck (1850) Brother: ERRINGTON WARBECK (1852) Sister: CARMELINA CRAMMING née Warbeck (1854) Brother-In-Law: Walter Cramming (1848-1885) Sister: JOSSIMA WARBECK (1859) Brother: Goodluck Warbeck (1872) Appearance: 5’7” (curse you, gia
APPEARANCE
5’7” (curse you, giant younger brother), gawkily built, big brown eyes and black, coarse hair. Spectacles. Right-handed. Sharing the same inability to distinguish between hues as his older brother, Duke runs into fashion faux pas somewhat regularly. It is easy to tell when Favoretta has intervened and mother(sister?)-henned in, especially around family events and get-togethers.
PERSONALITY
Obsessed with literature, both muggle and classics, Duke definitely found his calling amongst the nerds of the family.
OTHER
Feels tremendous pressure to not drag the family down, but is also way too in his own head to pursue a traditional courtship or life successfully.
HISTORY
1863: Born, filling the boyish gap that Errington’s ascent to Hogwarts leaves for 6 months. 1866: Duke clings to Carmelina’s leg as she too soon starts the Hogwarts departure. Reports from family letters mention that Duke still looks for her to read to him. Having yet to form a functioning knowledge of reading and writing, Duke takes to using ink where it shouldn’t be used to make clean-up nightmares art. 1868: Though quieter these last couple years, Duke starts imitating the type of art Carmelina brings home. 1869: Duke finally has a basic grasp on reading and writing and those Hogwarts owls are practically first-name basis with him as he mails Carmelina about this ‘new’ revelation and his latest art. Constantly. There are a lot of skulls, and that never really lets up. 1872: Duke experiences every human emotion over the course of ten months. Cue nine-year-old identity crisis that eventually pitters out after he realizes he gets to boss Goodluck around. Unironically, he starts writing to Carmina about the hazards of being nine years older than your sibling. 1874: Duke is ecstatic to be one of the proper Ravenclaw siblings – not that there is anything wrong with Jossima. (What kind of girl out-brooms her brother!? A Hufflepuff, that’s who!) He waxes poetry to Carmelina and Errington about the family legacy, and touts the virtue of being sorted into Ravenclaw to Goodluck, whom he is certain will follow similar footsteps with a name like that! Or not. Though there’s a few years between them, Duke meets Jude on one of his crusades while he’s tutoring some of the Ravenclaw stragglers. Duke finds himself simultaneously annoyed and riveted by Jude’s sanctimonious can-do attitude throughout school. While Duke himself has it pretty good as far as society goes, he finds himself more and more sympathetic to ideas against things he had taken for granted as simply normal. He finds himself gravitating into Kingsley Well’s circle within House Ravenclaw. 1881: Duke graduates, applies for various junior positions and gets a job interning at the Ministry's Department of Education to have some sort of excuse to sound smart. Meanwhile, he may or may not have taken bets on whether his mother or Favoretta would produce the next Warbeck. He steers clear of the subject with Carmelina. Instead, he makes some ill-fated advances on one of the harried young women in the Public Information Department. Be fruitful and multiply – and broads loves suffrage, yes? no? yes? ... 1885: Boring job while living with the parents. Courtship has thus far been a failure. Revolution has been a very thin line to tread, especially as Adult Duke finds he actually abhors upsetting people. He goes through shock, dismay, and perhaps a little shameful relief to have his favorite sister back under terrible circumstances. 1888: After three years of cleaning up way too much ink, Duke applies to do the spilling as a NEWT Examiner. It is more... traditional, than he would prefer, but there is something about holding futures in his ink-stained hands...
YOU LIKELY KNOW...
Marmaduke's family is, well, oddballs to say the least. Duke is no exception to the rule. For all his book smarts and poetry, Duke seems without exception to miss every mark and mis-remark in the presence of every nubile woman.
YOU MIGHT KNOW...
He can be found a little too often (for polite company) getting free drinks at the Augurey Beak Cafe.
YOU DON'T KNOW...
That Marmaduke fudged a friend's younger brother's N.E.W.T.S. in his favor.

Plot Preferences: Direct communication is awesome. I prefer more to work with things that have already happened rather than retconning them where possible. I'm very particular about how matters of rape and dubcon are handled, be the target female, male, other, underage, etc. Veela are a hard 'no' for me. If the plot question comes down to "with or without rape/dubcon/sexual assault?" - my answer will generally be "hold the rape, please" unless the offender is going to die a gratifying death. As long as we're respectful to each other OOC, whether or not we want to roleplay the same things, I think we'll get along.

I fool around with a lot of paper, cardboard, disposable pens and oil pastels these days. Have a look, and you're invited to post your own art as well.

Oil Pastels

I tend to get stuck on the idea that I'm wasting something by using it, when in reality it's far more of a waste to have something and yet hoard it. I've been trying to get past the compulsion to save/hoard by using white cardboard that would otherwise just be tossed as canvases for my oil pastels.
