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

Ester Montgomery for Thomas Montgomery. The one that got away (with the pornographer...)
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.

APPEARANCE
With clear blue eyes and a pale complexion, Elsie hardly finds herself attractive. Her face is a soft heart shape, with long lashes and subtly pink cheeks and lips. Her long, chestnut-colored hair won't hold a curl, as the current fashion demands. She tends to leave it plaited, though tendrils escape of their own accord. She tends not to pay attention to the fashions of the day simply because she is too busy reading; she wears what her mother gives her and goes by what her older sister wears. She's been told her appearance can be rather alarming, especially when she turns her round, wide eyes on you over the cover of a book. She's slender, though of a little below average height (5'0"), neither of which are really to her advantage. She feels that she is drowning in the few nice dresses she has, but looks like a boy in her every day frocks. It's a wonder to her if somebody will ever find her attractive enough to court her. She smiles and blushes easily and likes to laugh, which lights up her features. She is right-handed for both writing and wand work.
PERSONALITY
incredibly bright; studious; a bit shy and a little naive; awkward; caring; loyal; selfless; hard-working; protective; often insecure; natural worrier; warms up to people slowly; likes to laugh; true friend. ISFJ on the Meyers-Briggs.

HISTORY
[June 1859] | Stella Walsh marries Vincent Beauregard in a small family ceremony in Liverpool, England. Vincent manages a small felt of ships for an international shipping company from the port and Stella has established herself as a local governess.

[December 6th, 1861] | The couple welcome their first child, Bentley Maurice.

[February 14th, 1863] | Adella Alice joins the family as the first girl.

[May 13th, 1866] | Another girl joins the Beauregard family, Elsie Violette is a shockingly quiet infant, her wide blue eyes always observing her surroundings. She is a fairly easy baby, though does not always like to sleep.

[March 12, 1867] | A second boy joins the family, Harvey Vincent is a much louder and rambunctious babe.

[December 1870] | Elsie displays her first sign of magic when she assists her pregnant mother in putting up the Christmas decorations by levitating a candle into its place on the tree.

[May 23rd, 1871] | Twins join the family, Owen ---- and Charlotte Jane are the last additions to the already large Beauregard family. Shortly after the twins are born, Stella starts tutoring Elsie and Harvey in basic reading and mathematics skills. Elsie shows a quick aptitude for reading and begins to absorb as much information through books as she could. Elsie had always enjoyed listening to her mother or older siblings read aloud to her and became even more enthralled with it once she could do it herself. She developed a sincere affection for fairy tales from an early age, though eventually found a fondness for non-fiction as well.

[Summer 1872] | Shay Ross becomes a late addition to the Beauregard family as a ward. He was disowned from his own muggle family for his magic and the Beauregards take him in as their own. He heads off to school in September of the same year where he was sorted into Gryffindor.

[September 1873] | Bentley goes off to Hogwarts and is sorted into Gryffindor with Shay. The two had become fast friends in Shay's short time in the family and Bentley enjoyed having another boy his age around.

[September 1874] | Adella follows Bentley and Shay to Hogwarts where she is sorted into Hufflepuff. This year Vincent takes on a more involved position in his company and begins traveling more often. Elsie takes this harder than most of her siblings as she had always been a bit of a daddy's girl.

[Summer 1877] | Upheaval in the magical community causes the Beauregards to reconsider their living situation and the family relocates to Hogsmeade just before Elsie starts school.

[School Year 1877-78] | Elsie joins her siblings at Hogwarts, in a surprising turn of events in which everybody expected the bookworm to be sorted into Ravenclaw, Elsie joins Shay and Bentley in Gryffindor. She is at first baffled by the Sorting Hat's decision and feels very much an outcast in red and gold. However, she excels at her schoolwork, as expected and eventually settles into her house, despite her original hesitation.

[School Year 1878-79] | Harvey enters Hogwarts and is sorted into Hufflepuff. Shay graduates and begins his auror-in-training program at the ministry. He moves to London.

[School Year 1879-80] | Elsie adds Ancient Runes and Arithmacy as her electives. She excels in her classes yet again, even with the enormous workload. Bentley Graduates and begins an apprenticeship on High Street with a local craftsman.

[School Year 1880-81] | Adella and Lucinda debut and graduate from school. Adella and finds a job at the House of Lytton as a seamstress. Her first season does not produce a courtship, but she is unperturbed, enjoying her new occupation.

[School Year 1881-82] : Elsie starts off the year very much the same as the others. She does very well academically and not so well socially. Somehow she manages to catch the eye of Somerset Agrippa and the two become tentative friends, though Elsie is oblivious to his original intentions. Things become tricky that December when Grip is accused of rape and subsequently expelled; Elsie does not believe this is true and continues her friendship with him despite what anybody else might think.

That winter Bentley's friend Winnie falls very ill and spends quite a bit of time at the Beauregard house while she recovers. Bentley proposes to Winnie in February and the two start an adorable engagement. Shay's auror position pulls him abroad, though he often writes home. Els also befriends another housemate, Tybalt Kirke that spring and the two are fast friends, despite having been in the same house for five years, though Elsie still struggles with knowing when Tyb is teasing her (which is almost always). Her owl Grades come out exactly as she expected, after a ridiculous amount of studying.

[Summer 1882] |€ Bentley is drafted for the Hogsmeade Trail Expedition, he and Winnie struggle personally and ultimately their engagement dissolves. In August Grip causes a huge fire in Bartonburg which engulfs an entire house. He decides to leave the country and Elsie gets one last letter from him before he's gone. Elsie spends most of the summer volunteering at the Hospital where she meets Adam Parker.

[School Year 1882-83] | Back at school Els tries to move on from losing her friend and dives right back into her NEWT classes. Elsie discontinues taking Runes and Astronomy. She is taking the maximum amount of NEWT classes, but figures her lack of a social life and ample studying time allows her to work harder at her academics. She and Mr. Parker exchange a few letters and see one another a couple times, but things fizzle out despite her crush on him.

[School Year 1883-84] | Bentley is lost in an apartment fire in Boston, sending the entire Beauregard family into a deep mourning. Elsie breaks down, relying on her friends for support as she tries to pick up the pieces. Mixed with her grief over Bentley, Elsie realizes some unintentional feelings for her best friend, Tybalt Kirke. She tries desperately to bury them but things culminate in a post-disaster Coming Out Ball situation in which they reveal mutual feelings. Graduation leaves her working at her close friend, Odira's (or her husband's rather) bookshop while she puzzles out starting a teaching career.

[May 1884] | Elsie begins working at Wizzhard's bookstore after graduation to avoid being an actual debutante, much to her mother's chagrin. It suits Els though as she loves books. She also starts shadowing her mother in her governess position in hopes of soon finding her own.

[Summer 1884] | PLAGUE FIRE DOOM. The Beauregards are largely unharmed in any of the summer’s tragedies, most of the house falls prey to the Laughing Sickness, aside from Owen, but they all recover.

[1885] | A misunderstanding between herself and Tyb on New Year's Day sees them fighting and not speaking for months. Elsie blames herself of course and tries to bury everything, though she misses her best friend. They reconcile in the spring and find themselves in a very tentative and even more secret relationship.

A pregnant Odira goes missing! Elsie is worried sick for her friend, for months on end. She is found (and gives birth!) in October of that year, though she has no recollection of who she is or even that she's a witch! Elsie very tentatively and patiently tries to rekindle her friendship with Odira in the hopes that her friend will be alright!

November and some (innocent!) irresponsible decisions have Elsie telling Tyb she loves him. It's very important, OKAY?

[1886] | Elsie, inspired by Odira, changes her career path and takes on a junior librarianship at the Crowdy Memorial Library in London and she couldn't be happier with that.

Adella marries Philip Calendar in May!

A New Year's Eve snowstorm leaves Elsie trapped for several days at Tyb's house. It's very... confusing for Elsie. On one hand she thoroughly enjoyed getting to have all that time together, but on the other it makes her miss it more than she would have expected. It gives her a glimpse of what they could have, but Elsie is entirely unsure about that being even a remote possibility for her...

[1887] | Els continues to work at the library and it's a quiet year for her.

[1888] | The year starts out with a BANG. After a foolish move at Lucinda's quidditch party in January, her cousin catches Elsie and Tyb getting cozy in the library and that's when everything starts to go downhill and fast. The pair are forced to face the harsh reality of their situation that they'd just kind of been ignoring up until then. In March everything fizzles out completely when she and Tyb decide to take a break, but Elsie doesn't have a lot of hope that things will work out in their favor in the long run.

In the meantime, Elsie has been exchanging letters with a library patron who helped her during an illness. Mr. Adlard seems to share her love of literature and dislike of social situations, which Elsie finds refreshing, though she doesn't think much of it beyond that. In June Elsie is promoted to a librarian slot!

YOU LIKELY KNOW...
» That Elsie worked at Wizzhard's bookstore after graduation and for a couple of years, before changing paths and moving to the library.
YOU MIGHT KNOW...
» If you are familiar with the Beauregards at all you may know that her brother was killed in an apartment fire while living abroad in October of 1883.

» If you went to school with Elsie and were at her debut (1884), you might remember her tripping during the procession. She was also mostly absent for the rest of the evening, hiding.
YOU DON'T KNOW...
» That Elsie is still head over heels in love Tybalt Kirke. Only one person knows that by admission; if you don't know already, you don't know. Their interactions were few and far between. They were discreet; until her cousin caught them at an event she was hosting and now the two are no longer "together".

Plot Preferences: I'm up for just about anything. I like romance plots, bromance plots, one-sided affections, bitter rivalries, outright loathing, you name it. Awkwardness is my favorite thing EVER. Like EVER, EVER. I love open threads and I like when things happen organically. I'm not totally against pre-plotting, I like to give my characters a rough, (very, very) vague outline of what I'd like them to do. I will try to work with other authors in plots they're working on, but I do not promise my characters for one specific plot or another. I will certainly throw them in to see what happens, but if it doesn't fit or they don't fit, I don't want to feel stuck there. Aside from non-consensual sexual situations (which also includes veela interactions without my previous knowledge) I'm game for just about anything! Really, hit me up with anything and I will try my hardest to help you work it out!

Every time somebody labels something random like this in the chit chat we all assume they're leaving, I am NOT leaving haha.

I do want to explain why I'm going to suck for the foreseeable future however, because I'm going to be VERY up and down, at least until the summer. I tell you this not for sympathy or anything, just an explanation of why I'll be up and down, here all weekend and then scarce all week (most likely).

To make a long story short and without going into crazy detail, my husband and I are separating. He's made some bad decisions that have led us to two different place in our lives and we're taking some time apart. The kids and I will be moving in with my parents at the end of June and I'll start a new job in September. I should be around more this summer as the kids will spend weekends with their dad then and I'll have time. I may be around during the week provided things with the kids don't go crazy during the day or whatever, but most nights I'm bushed after doing it all day by myself. (Shout out to single parents, this shit is hard!)

I'm sorry to newbies I've plotted threads with and am super slow, I'm going to try and keep you guys close to the top in my lists, but I can't make any promises.

Love to you all, I'm always around on skype or facebook messenger if you need me or have questions. Just be patient with me, I'll be better than ever with a little time!
