Victorians could hire 'professional mourners' to attend their loved one's funeral. These people would partake in the procession and were not allowed to speak, just look awfully sad! — Rune

Kristoffer was going to be great at this, because he was great at everything. Also his memory was greater than everyone else's, because he bet no one else had ever lost their virginity somewhere exotic like Morocco. Hell, he bet no one else had even lost their virginity. Inexperienced losers.

Holly is by no means stunningly beautiful—even for her age!—but cares enough about her appearance that she prevents herself from looking dreadful or even ordinary. She loves expensive dresses that showcase her wealth, though has never preferred frilly lace or floral patterns. Her hair is long and honey blonde, and her eyes are the same shade of blue that many of her family members share. She is right-handed.

☛ Holly's boggart is likely losing Camille, though this isn't something she'd directly admit to her younger sister. This fear stems from being the last one from her "real" family still alive, as she doesn't consider her half-brother a relative since her father seems to favor him to her.

☛ Holly's amortentia is a mixture of her siblings' scents from when they were alive. She associates lavender with Philippa, rosemary with Stephana, smoke with Virigil (from his attempts to steal their father's cigars!), and a wet, earthy smell that Emilia used to come inside with after playing with Camille outdoors.

☛ She obviously hasn't cast a patronus yet.
1875 | Holly is born the fifth child (and fourth living following the death of her brother a decade earlier!) of Hadrian and Margery Scrimgeour. A loud and demanding child, her parents shuffle through different nannies before finding one that can actually soothe her.

1876 | Less than a year following Holly's birth, her mother gives birth to a set of twins. Sadly, the strain on her body proves too much, and she dies of complications within days.

1877 | Muggles riot after magic is revealed to their population. The Scrimgeour family move to Hogsmeade, more so because their desire for magical neighbors than a fear of muggles.

1881 | Holly's father dares remarry—and to a woman five years older than her eldest sister! Even at four years old, Holly does not appreciate her presence in the household.

1882 | Holly's first sign of magic appears during a petty argument with her step-mother.

1884 | The most crushing month of her life takes place when the laughing plague offs all of her elder siblings. Stephana, Philippa, Virgil, and even Emilia are buried in a joint funeral.

1885 | Holly's step-mother dares give birth to a baby and doesn't have the decency to die. He's apparently named Wilton, and Holly spends the weekend complaining to Cousin Cissa about the fact that she now has a little brother. She thinks he's ugly and squirmy and ugh.

1887 | Holly is finally freed from the prisons of her house and is allowed to go off to school with Camille and Cousin Cissa. Holly and Cissa are sorted into Slytherin, while Camille is sorted into Gryffindor. Quickly finding a love for her academics, Holly throws herself into various extracurricular activities and even contests when the time comes. She places second in her age bracket at the potion-brewing tournament as well.
☛ The Hogsmeade laughing plague of 1884 killed off her two older sisters, elder brother, and one of the twins. Since then, she's been the eldest in her family.

☛ Her cousin, Bella Scrimgeour, has an iffy reputation (for working, the manner of her upbringing, and her tense relationship with the rest of the Scrimgeour family).

☛ She can be a bit of a brat (and a bully at times!).

☛ Her younger sister, Camille, is also in her year at school.
☛ She is betrothed to Germander Macnair.

☛ She's aggressive with her academics and tends to use others—even older students—as pawns to learn as much as she can.
☛ She has dark tendencies, but has never actually done dark magic of any sort (probably because she's only eleven, so stay tuned!).

Plot Preferences:
☛ With open threads, I tend to have a "go with the flow" attitude. If you have suggestions for the thread's direction, I'll definitely listen; however, there's no grantee my characters will.

☛ With private (pre-planned) threads, I like to have a synopsis for whatever we hope to accomplish, but do understand if things don't go as planned!

☛ I can't pre-plot romantic chemistry, but can pre-plot things such as established relationships or even something as wild as spontaneous engagements been there, done that, willing to do it again ;)

☛ Please warn me before sending my characters into prolonged mourning or damaging their reputations, especially if they can temporarily impede ongoing plots!

☛ My big no-nos are pedophilia or (written out) sexual abuse/assault.

☛ I'm fine with strong language and violence. I have no issue with smut, but only when it's relevant to plot or character development.

☛ I don't mind if you control my characters in minimal ways (i.e. having them follow when it's the logical thing to do, grabbing their hands and tugging them, nodding if something factual is explained, etc.). The exception is with dialogue or actions that would take deliberate decision-making to figure out what they do.
