It was considered fashionable to have one's teeth removed in one's teens or twenties and replaced with dentures. This saved the time and money required to maintain them and avoided the potential for toothaches. — Lynn ( Submit your own)

Lonely Plots

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 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.

FOR SWEETIE WHITLEDGE:
    The Mean Girl Duo

    Up until last school year ('87), Sweetie has had at least two girls that she spent a good portion of her time with. These girls are the same year as her, and can be from any house. 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 the summer of '87. (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.

    Though they have backed off this year, that could change for sake of plotting.

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 EUGENE REESE
Someone to teach him how to read and write. Preferably a fellow WC individual but this is pretty open. Eugene came back from the expedition with a lost leg so this person would also be helping around whenever he can.



Eugene returned from the Avalon Expedition minus a leg.

Old school friends for Dimitri. He was pretty bookish and spent a lot of time in the library. He was a Ravenclaw and attended from 1872-1879. Dimitri was a student with a lot of potential that got cut short due to his becoming of the undead. It is pretty well known among the people that knew him that he became a vampire since he is law-abiding, registered, etc.

OKAY so at the Aphrodite Soiree, @Inès Valentine told Edric that his soulmate was an "exotic beauty" - only Edric doesn't really know any women that could be described like that. Because of this, he disregarded it as a sham and ran back off to @"February Lynch", not wanting to stir up any drama where he perceives there to be none.

... Except there will be, because I need some reason to stir up shit between Febric again.

So here's the plan:
    Your character is an ACAB woman who could be described as "exotic" (which, in Offensive Victorian Terms, is basically a pretty non-white or noticeably non-British woman). She's unmarried, probably between the ages of 20-30, and could reasonably get along with Edric enough to thread with him more than once.
Here's some general ~ideas for how I feel this could go:
  • Your character gets into a situation where an auror presence is required, and Edric "saves" her (or at least gives the appearance of it). This either: (1) makes its way into the Daily Prophet or (2) draws the attention of the rumor mills. This amuses me because that is how Febric started and it could strike a chord.
  • They have natural chemistry and Edric can't get the thought of Inès' "prophecy" out of his mind. He begins to obsessively worried that she's the "soulmate" who's destined to tear him and Febby apart, and in doing so convinces himself that he does like her when he really doesn't.
While there isn't a solid end game in mind, I don't expect this to be anything permanent. (Key word 'expect', because one time Febric broke themselves up without Bee or I's consent. It was awful.)

This could be an existing or new character, but if it's the latter I'd rather her have some other purpose than just this plot (family adoptable, another plot on top of this one, etc.)

FOR FLORA MULCIBER
    Flora has a toad, "Mr. Afton", who her Papa convinced was formerly a human student who was turned into a toad for failing his transfiguration exam. While he didn't mean to start anything, Flora decided to buy the toad as her Hogwarts pet with hopes that she might be able to return it to its human state one day.

    In her letter to Ernest, Flora mentioned:

    Quote:I've done my best to keep him sheltered, but met a strange boy who's taken an eerie interest in feeding him flies whenever I see him. I wonder how he catches them — with magic or by hand?

    .... and now I really want the strange boy who always seems to have flies to feed Mr. Afton.

    They would be a male student in years 1-4 who Flora does not know. He's probably WC or MC, a little bit strange or at least a little bit ~eccentric. I'd love a thread or two with them.

FOR ALEXANDER ECHELON: the 'boyfriend' he doesn't even know he has
I would love to have the guy from 1887 here.
This is also the year when Alexander finds himself accidentally the object of a man's affections and almost just as accidentally (he didn't want to be too rude), he sleeps with him. It wasn't terrible though Alexander is incredibly confused since before the incident, he hadn't even been aware that men with men was a thing. For once, his common sense kicks in that this is probably not something he should ask any of his siblings or friends about.
He is also the guy that this post from May 30, 1888 was referring to:
Alexander had decided on attending the coming out ball. One of his cousins had suggested that he find a heiress to marry and he'd figured that seemed like a good idea. It would be fun, at least and he could always just get drunk. His new closest friend had acted weird when he'd talked about his plans for tonight and Alexander had wondered what to think about that before it floated out of his head. His friend usually cheered up if he gave the other guy some kisses and affection anyway.

A spinster, widow or other matronly type to be the live-in guardian of @Katherine Russell and @Isaac Russell. In addition to having room and board taken care of, this person would get a healthy stipend in exchange for occasionally playing chaperone to the kids when they go out and about. They're technically meant to be watching over them the whole time, but the arrangement is really more that they'll be around to look like they're doing that while the kids take care of themselves in the house.

They would have been hired via letter by the infamous Mr. Thomas Russell, exile and suspected mass murderer. They could have known it was him hiring them, or might have been tricked into accepting the post after only corresponding with a "Mr. R," or similar.

I'm also open to threadding out someone who took the post and immediately quits when they meet the kids and realize who hired them. Basically open to anything for connections here.
