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.

Standing at an even five feet tall with a wealth of dark, curling hair, deep brown eyes, and a figure curvaceous enough to be immediately viewed as "woman," Ambrosia cuts a striking figure in well-made, lace-trimmed evening gowns and day dresses alike. Naturally and unashamedly left-handed, the young woman is still relatively reserved following the events of the past year.

ENFP-T (Curious, Observant, Energetic and Enthusiastic, Excellent Communicators, Know How to Relax, Very Popular and Friendly, Poor Practical Skills, Overthink Things,  Highly Emotional,  Independent to a Fault)
  • Patronus: Sparrow (formerly)
  • Amortentia: Post-rainfall grass fields in early spring, warm olive oil, fresh bread
  • Boggart: Nectar's corpse
  • Likes: Archery, potions, her sister
  • Dislikes: Dangerous plants, judgemental people
  • Western Zodiac: Capricorn
1867: Ambrosia Lemon Shinnick is born the first child of Mortimer and Penthesilea.
1868: Nectar is born. Ambrosia’s too young to fully care about this, but does experience some firstborn anxieties, as she is no longer the only child.
1870: As the eldest, Ambrosia begins lessons with a specially-chosen tutor; she shows promise in French, Latin, and singing.
1872: Ambrosia exhibits her first signs of magic during the first snowstorm she would ever remember, forming a large snow crystal from falling snow when the nanny left the nursery window open. The nanny is subsequently let go for endangering the Shinnick sisters.
1874: Nectar displays magic in a show of frustration during the sisters’ music lesson by destroying a number of keys on the family piano. This leaves Ambrosia in a fit of giggles.
1877: The first sign of heartbreak in the sisters’ lives. During the chaos, shortly after Hogsmeade was founded and made clear to be an option for refuge from the madness of the muggles, Penthesilea is in the process of packing the last things for the transition. A group of muggles passing through the area witness her using magic to pack and surge into the home, slaughtering her in the sitting room.
1878: Ambrosia enters school still in a state of mourning, and is sorted into Ravenclaw.
1879: Nectar follows Ambrosia into Hogwarts.
1880: At the end of her second year, Ambrosia decides to sign up for Care of Magical Creatures and Ancient Runes as OWL courses.
1883: Ambrosia sits her OWLs. The scores come back thus, leading to the choice of keeping Astronomy, Charms, Herbology, Potions, and Transfiguration as NEWT courses:
Ancient RunesA
Care of Magical CreaturesA
Defence Against the Dark ArtsA
History of MagicD
1885: Ambrosia debuts, but three weeks after, tragedy strikes once more, and her father is slain on a full moon night in a werewolf attack. Thus, Ambrosia’s first season ends before it is even begun, she enters a period of mourning, and she and her sister are sent to live with their maternal uncle, Deiphobus, who also lives in Hogsmeade. When her NEWT scores arrive, they are thus:
1886: After missing her first season due to mourning, Ambrosia entered into her second season in London, at which point she met Harper Stokerton, a twenty-eight year old half-blood from northern Scotland. They grew close quite naturally, and began to exchange letters. In November, Harper inquires with Deiphobus after Ambrosia’s hand in marriage. He consents, and on New Year’s Eve, Harper proposes.
1887: Harper and Ambrosia announce their engagement on May 12th, with the intent to wed in late July. These plans, however, are foiled when, on a day outing, Harper is among the casualties of the Wizarding World Market. He was among those mauled to death by a flying tiger, though technically he died in Ambrosia’s arms after she cast a well-aimed [i]depulso[/i] just a moment too late. She has been in mourning ever since.
Her maternal family members bear an intense interest in the mythology of Ancient Greece, and encourages a certain level of outspoken nature in the ladies. Ambrosia herself has, on a number of occasions, shown this publicly. Ambrosia was engaged to a half-blood from Scotland, who was a victim of mauling-by-flying-tiger.
Ambrosia has an intense interest in archery, and has competed in the past.
Though Ambrosia knows that marriage is in her future, she is hesitant after the loss of Harper, fearing that the streak of ill luck will hold true once more.

Mozelle Rios & Prudence - Fellow fifth years, probably friendly. Mozelle is a very kind girl who isn't entirely horrible at classwork, so she could also be helpful with homework (even this past year)!
Naeva Lécuyer & Prudence - Naeva would 100% have fit into the <i>dislike</i> category, lol.

Lydia Harleston & Finlay - Lydia is <i>much</i> older than Finlay and works in the Creature-Induced Injuries ward at Hogsmeade Hospital. Would probably be the sort to encourage his interest in Herbology, as she tends her own garden!
