Fern-hunting parties became popular, allowing young women to get outside in a seemingly innocuous pursuit with less rigid oversight and chaperoning than they saw in parlors and drawing rooms. They may have even had the occasional romantic meetup with a similarly fern-impassioned beau. — Bree

Now that he had walked up to them, he couldn't exactly whirl around and get going. That would be rude. And was not, presumably, how straight men seduced their future wives.

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 is a sociopath, but doesn't tend to think much of the traits that define that part of her. She can be very callous and lacks empathy, believing that people with issues should just "get over them". She lacks charm and tact in social settings, though firmly believes herself to be superior to others around her.
A random assortment of scents she associates with home, specifically what home was like before most of her family perished: her older sisters' perfumes, her brother's quidditch gloves, and the cookies Emilia used to nibble on in the afternoons.

Her sister's corpse, not that she'd ever tell her that.

As an underage youth, Holly is limited to the floo network and rare instances of side-along apparition. She will not use a broomstick, considering herself far too dignified to do so.

Holly's sexuality is still unclear, as she has an immense amount of self-importance at this point in life as hasn't considered the possibility of marriage beyond the fact that it's an inevitable fact of life — especially since she is betrothed.

Nevertheless, it's likely that she will eventually take interest in the opposite sex, as she's already noticed that certain boys are aesthetically-pleasing.

Skills & Misc. Info
Holly has a pretty tough time handling people — specifically, conflict with people — in a healthy way. She tends to get very aggressive very fast, even the point of threatening other people with her wand.

Holly is also aggressively ambitious, with goals that many older witches and wizards might think are silly for a girl her age to have. She's very academically-inclined, especially in the field of Defence Against the Dark Arts and Potions; however, in the event that she fails or under-performs in these areas, she's prone to losing her temper.
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 killed off the majority of her immediate family in 1884.

❧ Her uncle, Argus Scrimgeour, was arrested and charged with aggravated assault against his daughter in May of 1888. Aforementioned daughter has a bit of an iffy reputation herself.

❧ Holly is well-known around Hogwarts for being a bit of a bully, especially to students she considers below herself.
❧ 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.

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.

Seneca Lestrange

One of the few students Holly considers a "friend". Even at that, the two girls are prone to bickering among themselves.

Calla Potts

Holly's temporary Herbology tutor, but apparently "Pippy Potts" got sick of her manipulative behavior. Oh well.

Germander Macnair

Holly's betrothed and, in her opinion, a pain in the ass.

Nathan Blackwall

Holly would just love to burn him alive.

Camille Scrimgeour

Holly's last living full sibling. A first year Gryffindor, the two girls have become somewhat distant in recent months.
