Did you know?

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

Have you got a grand idea for a plot but need a role (or roles) filled in before it can really take off? Post below describing the sort of character you need, your intention for them, and, if possible, how many threads you might require!

For example:

Quote:Wanted for Jeremy Rohlwing: a potioneer he can pay to brew an (unsuccessful) Eyesight-Improving Potion for him. MC/LC AB, professional or amateur, does not have to be reputable. Estimated 1-3 threads. Contact MJ by Skype.

You can be as vague or as detailed as you like! Requests for specific characters to be created must instead be posted in plottable characters. This thread is intended only to recruit existing characters into your schemes.



PMs on this account will not be checked.
Instead, please contact Ursula Black, Aldous Crouch, Cassius Lestrange, Elias Grimstone, Elladora Black, or Elsie Beauregard with any questions, issues, or concerns.

FOR GEORGE WATERFORD:

A male Ravenclaw in his third year. Needed for one-two threads. Body in the room—nothing extravagant! Live body, of course. I don't want your corpses.



Beauty set by Soph <3

Though George is publicly presented as male and should be addressed as He/Him/His, privately she considers herself as female and will use She/Her/Hers pronouns.

FOR RUFINA MULCIBER:

A gentleman aged 34-40 or so, upper class, with two magical, human parents. His marital status is open, but he should be of good reputation and a sociable sort. He and Rufina entered into a flirtation early in 1885, but this eventually developed into a physical affair. Rufina called things off early in the fall of 1886 and then had some personal drama that he is blissfully unaware of, having likely moved on with his life. He does not work at the Ministry.

This is a multi-month commitment—I’d like to both backthread their initial developing relationship and then thread them after Ernest’s impending accident.

Ideally he's dark-haired because apparently that's her type, but I'm not going to shun someone fairer if he works well otherwise! No gingers, though.

Wanted for Barnabas Skeeter:
  • A lady, now married (or not but he could believe her to be married), with a botanical name of some sort. (Or jewel, or some kind of object. Basically he has a tattoo of her name imagery on his arse cheek so it needs to be a thing~ of some kind. This was played by a character in the past and her name was Ivy, just to give an idea.
  • Any class, any blood. He's a halfblood so blood status doesn't matter. Class doesn't matter because they had a fling~ with sexual tension but nothing came of it because he didn't make a move, nor did she, and they can't be together because of class reasons and/or she's married.
  • They annoy the hell out of each other but there is chemistry there.
  • I've left up a summary of the threads in his ship index in his profile (see the extras tab) if you want to see what organically came of it in the past. (The past character is Ivy Scrivenshaft.)
  • Props if she's a healer but not required!

Where this is going...
  • Likely just a "the one that got away" scenario for him, ill-fated, would never have worked out anyway type of thing,
    but I would love for her to flaunt herself at him whenever they run into each other in public. Accidental sexual scenarios to increasingly frustrate him would be ace
  • Depending on how crazy she drives him, he could have poor judgement and a) get drunk and write her awful love poems, b) not stalk her in a creepy way, c) be secret admirer in a definitely creepy way, d) have a brief love affair where he's always breaking up with her but then coming back for more.

Bee's wanted ad for Amaryllis -- nee Potts could fit!

FOR SWEETIE WHITLEDGE:
    The Mean Girl Duo

    Up until recently, Sweetie has had at least two girls that she spent a good portion of her time with. These girls were of Upper Class, and of the same year as her or older. They would know her quite well, enough to get the girl who refuses to cry, to burst into tears in front of her own brother. Their actions are due to Sweetie's changes in personality, from events that have happened over summer. (They could also not like Sweetie's friendship with a halfbreed, and are frustrated that Sweetie stood by Crystal through the ban.)

    I mainly want them for a few threads, or it could be more. I want to develop what is actually happening to Sweetie that is causing such upset for these other threads. More threads would be excellent. I am open to the outcome of what happens between the girls (whether they become friends again, or they forever stay bitter towards one another). I would prefer that all of these girls be Upper Class, though their Blood Status is completely open.

The Ally

    This person is an outsider to the full conflict, but has felt sympathy for Sweetie. Choosing to stand up to the Slytherin, this student and Sweetie develop a friendship of their own. All of this is going to help with Sweetie's development, and I would love for her to see past class, and be more trusting of some people in the process (as well as see that money isn't everything).

    I would prefer that this character does have a lasting connection to Sweetie, though that is up to player. I'd prefer someone who is outside of her family conflict and a Working (or Middle) Class character of similar age to Sweetie (preferably in her school year).

These characters can either be pre-made, or new characters.

Sweetie prefers to go by the more proper name of Rachel, and your character may know this.

FOR DIONISIA TWEEDY:
    A new roommate. Dionisia has been living in a Pennyworth boarding house for women since Pennyworth's founding and is growing tired of living by herself. She's a workaholic who spends most of her time at the hospital, but hates being alone in her house while off the job. Preferably a WCAB female ±5 years her age living in Hogsmeade, but she could relocate to Irvingly or London if really necessary.

Wanted for Madeleine Backus
Maddie has just come into a large/life changing inheritance, she has been left land, money and houses in Russia, which will provide an income that places her soldily as upper middle class.  Most of the money will vest when she marries, or changes her name.  

The Scammer
The information will begin to spread around school about the money, and someone who is MC, or UC but secretly broke could attempt to scam her out of her money, either romance her with a view of getting the cash from her, or just try and get her to give them access to cash because she is a softie.  

The new 'friends'
I would like Maddie to have a few new friends in the MC, or UC -either fake friends who just want more information, or who are genuinely keen to help Maddie deal with the huge change adapting to a different way of life, and new expectations that might be of her.

Seeking a Terribly Bad Romace Idea for Miss Lucille Flint:

It's almost a new season and Lucy is determined she will fall in love this year. But no one said she had any sense in a match. Test her sensibilities by throwing the most improbable matches at her. I'd love to see her dreaming attitude get her into some trouble. Hoping for 2-3 threads for each gentleman who comes forward. Let's watch a deb go up in societal flames.

For Hope Crawford
Due to the fact that Hope is a hopeless romantic that would insist on marrying for love and little else, I kind of want Hope to end up marrying down so I am looking for hurls with middle or working class men though the most likely are middle class men. They should be at least twenty two years of age or older. They also don't necessarily need to be able to support a wife yet. The more inappropriate for her, the better really.

For Esther Browne:

Essie is the type who wouldn't really approach a stranger, so in order to push her out of her comfort zone I'd like to explore a new relationship based on shared interests (preferably magical history or mathematics). ACAB any gender is fine, though an adult man roughly her age would make her most uncomfortable. In my head they meet in either the bookshop or the library, where s/he notices that Esther is always buying the same types of books s/he is (or perhaps at the library, Es has always just checked out the one s/he is looking for). The other character would have to be interested in starting a conversation and persistent enough to continue one once Esther politely ended it and we'd go from there.

This is a long term commitment (mutliple threads over the course of weeks/months) with no particular endgame in mind. Timely replies not particularly necessary as long as you're willing to stick with a thread. Throw suitable candidates into my networking or at my Skype.

For Ernest Mulciber:

A student (or students) graduating this May to interview for positions in the DoM and not get them. I just want a thread where Ernest interviews someone and peppers them with verbal abuse the whole time. No ongoing commitment but I'll be around for future threads if you want them.

If no one takes me up on this I could stretch to a current fifth or sixth year who might seek him out to try and figure out what NEWTs they need to become an Unspeakable, and receives similar incredulous questions followed by derisive remarks.

    Birthday threads, birthday threads -- last year Cash got the gift of intense psychological trauma and we are operating on the returns here, folks. These are all threads set on May 25th but for my purposes I'll be starting them sooner.

    I need:
    One (1) thread with 2-3 just need one or two more! Quidditch folk - any team, but younger Quidditch folks, for the 'haha let's take you out for a mid-day drink' twenty-somethings crowd
    I have 2-3 other schemes with specific targets in mind

For Marlowe Johnson-
An ACAB gentleman residing in Irvingly for Marli to have just started crushing on. She's run into him numerous times since 1886 when she made the official move to Irvingly. She knows nothing about him other than he's kind and lives in Irvingly. It does not to have any endgame other than a few awkward run in threads where she actually gets to know who he is. If it evolves further, awesome! If not, no biggie.

PM Hawke via Fortuna Lockhart or hit me up on Skype!

FOR BELLA SCRIMGEOUR
    Bella is technically out of hiding, and, in true Bella fashion, will make zero efforts to clean up her act and will just continue living her life as a working woman. There's only one teeny tiny problem: she doesn't have her job at St. Mungo's to go back to. As such, she'll be on the lookout for anyone willing to take her under their wing and teach her how to do something that can make her a living.

    While her mention of them in her IC narrative will likely be ongoing for the months to come, right now I only need 1-3 threads establishing her position (and maybe some awkward training threads!).

    So what about the "position" itself?

    It could really be anything Bella might reasonably try, though must have some sort of magical aspect to it unless it was so ridiculous and offered "guaranteed success" that she might toss her hat in the ring. It would be best if the position tapped into Bella's own skills (but it could be something totally opposite for the humor factor if you have ideas!), and it can't be anything inherently limited to poor people for now ;)
ALTERNATIVELY...
    Bella has always handled stress by making less-than-stellar decisions, and with the overwhelming amount of drama she's been handing — her father's attack on her, his arrest, and Ben Crouch #issues — the likelihood of Bella latching onto someone who is equally an awful of a life choice is astronomically high.

    This may be because she's, uh, slowly draining her savings from her former St. Mungo's internship and is beginning to take the warning about potentially ending up in destitution (thanks, Art) a bit more seriously, or it may partially be because she's managed to completely isolate herself in a time of physical and emotional recovery where she should be surrounded by people who care about her instead (but it doesn't help when she's convinced all those people hate her now, so that's out the window #whoops).

    Any potential victims of her attention would be the not-Ben type, but at the same time should have some level of poor judgment to where they'd (1) speak to her, and (2) continue the acquaintanceship.



I burned the bridges without regret.

FOR JANUARY
In Januarys app, I mention in 1887: "This same year she has a rather intense though still rather innocent flirtation with a Quidditch player." I would love to have that instance fitted onto an actual played character.

They should be male, acab and have either been on a school Quidditch team in 1887 (and thus, yearmates with January) or were already a professional quidditch player if they're a bit older. Age is flexible for the most part but definitely same age or older than January. This was pretty much an emotional affair for the pair so keep that in mind with your offerings~
