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

WANTED:

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...

Andrew Bingham
PROFILE

Full Name: Andrew Edward Bingham

Nickname(s): Drew (OOC)

Birthdate: December 20, 1867

Age: 20

Occupation: Muggle Liaison Office Employee

Blood Status: Halfblood

Residence: Pennyworth, Hogsmeade, Scotland

Hogwarts House: Hufflepuff Dropout ('85)

Wand: English Oak, 11½ inches, Phoenix feather, Unyielding

Family:
John Bingham, Father [1839]
America Bingham (née -----), Mother [1846]
Lorraine Bingham, Sister [1865]
APPEARANCE
Andrew has a naturally athletic build and stands a little over five feet, seven inches tall. His skin is slightly tanned from all the time he's spent in the sun while living in the slums. His dark brown hair is cropped short, and his eyes are of a similar shade. He dresses in clothes appropriate to his station. He is right-handed.

PERSONALITY
HARDWORKING. TOLERANT. SIMPLE-MINDED. RESPONSIBLE. KIND. FRIENDLY. WARM.
OTHER
Amortentia
Jamesina — her hair, her perfume, her clothes. It isn't as surprising now as it was in the two years they didn't speak to each other, but it seems his affection for her never faded.

Boggart
¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Patronus
He was never capable of casting a patronus after leaving school.

Transportation
Andrew is not particularly skilled at apparition, though does use it when there's an immediate need. He generally prefers the floo network for short to medium-distance travel, and portkeys if there's ever a necessity to leave the country.

Romance
Andrew is heterosexual, having never even considered a same-sex relation as an option. He is a virgin, but has never had an especially high sex drive compared to other young men his age.

He's adamantly monogamous, and tends to linger on romantic connections even when it seems there's no hope. Such was evident when his feelings for his Hogwarts sweetheart, Jamesina Mcintyre, lingered for years after they parted ways.

Skills & Misc. Info
Andrew is skilled in charm-work and general spell-casting, having been looking into post-NEWT level charms by the time he dropped out of Hogwarts. He worked for the Accidental Magical Reversal Squad after Hogwarts, and as such is particularly talented with charms that reverse done damage.
HISTORY
1867 | Andrew Bingham is born to John and America Bingham at their one-room home in the London slums. Though healthy at birth, the winter draft causes both Andrew, his mother, and his two-year-old sister to suffer through harsh colds.

1871 | Andrew's first sign of magic appears while playing with a few of his friends outside the family's home. His parents don't see it and initially believed he imagined it, but subsequent happenings in their presence eventually convince them.

1876 | Lorraine goes to Hogwarts and is sorted into -----. She doesn't do very well academically for the first semester, and upon returning home for winter break their parents have a "talk" with her about her progress. If she doesn't fix her grades, they won't be sending her back to school for her second year.

1877 | After the muggles begin to riot, the Bingham family move to the Hogsmeade slums.

1878 | After another poor school year, Lorraine leaves Hogwarts and goes to work.

1879 | Andrew goes off to Hogwarts and is sorted into Hufflepuff. Unlike his sister, Andrew takes to his academics very well, favoring Charms over the rest of his classes. When he does struggle, he does his best to secure tutors willing to help him.

1881 | Andrew adds Muggle Studies, Care of Magical Creatures, and Ancient Studies to his course load. Muggle Studies proves the easiest of the three, though he does enjoy all of them. He takes his professors seriously when they warn about the importance of paying attention; he doesn't fail a class because of it.

1884 | Andrew takes his OWL examinations and graduated with well enough scores. After his father gets a promotion, Andrew is allowed to return to school for his NEWTs with the hope that the family finances will improve. That year, he becomes enamored with Miss Jamesina Mcintrye, a Hufflepuff in the year beneath him.

1885 | After news of his father's sudden firing, Andrew becomes irritable and distances himself from Jamesina, leading to their unofficial parting at the end of the school year. Andrew leaves Hogwarts and goes to work at the Ministry in the Accidental Magic Reversal Squad at the age of seventeen.

1886 | With Andrew's pay, combined with the money his parents and sister make, the Bingham family is able to move into a more comfortable Pennyworth home.

1887 | The disaster at the Wizarding World Market—which he happened to be present at—fate brings Andrew and Jamesina back together when she's the mediwitch to care for him after he's attacked. They rekindle their friendship-bordering-romance, though Andrew is afraid of messing things up again. While not permanently crippled by his injuries, he is forced to leave the Accidental Magic Reversal Squad (a very active job!) in favor of a Muggle Liaison Office desk job.

    ANDREW IS OPEN FOR NEW PLOTS
❧ 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.
