Did you know?

First names were most often used by childhood or school friends. If the friendship was made after school age, first names would only really be used by women. Men were far more likely to refer to their friends by their surnames, a mark of familiarity. — Documentation

Emilia Wright for Jude Wright. Casually alienating offspring since 18882.
Separating was also not a great idea, though they weren't doing great at staying together anyway. If she were to volunteer to be the human sacrifice.. well... Hogsmeade had plenty of debutantes anyway...

Lonely Plots
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.


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!

    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 are the same year as her or older, 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 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.

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. This does not have to be a permanent thing, but I am hoping for some development in Lucy, perhaps even a shred of sense as she grows up. Or it could be permanent with lasting changes. Let me know if you are interested.

Thank you MJ for an amazingly Lucy set!
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~

For Zinnia Potts
Zinnia is a bit of an artist specializing in water colors. She used to focus primarily on landscapes and floral things but has recently taken up painting portraits! She's going to randomly start painting faces. Some could be based off of people seen around the shop and others are just randomly made up entirely. HOWEVER, I would like for some to end up having some sort of resemblance to people, particularly gentleman. I'd also like for her to get caught painting or have one of her painting being noticed by someone who it looks quite like. Awkward threading shall ensue when she's confronted by said person. Maybe they think she's creepy for it. Maybe they're flattered by it. Maybe they think she has a crush on them as a result. I'm game for whatever/however many!

PM me via Fortuna Lockhart or hit me up on skype!

I would like the possibility of Persephone staying after the festival leaves. But for that to happen, I would love to build plots with those that are around either Hogsmeade or Irvingly. She is quite a lovely character who I wouldn't mind playing out longer than the summer if she can get some connections and a good plot going. Feel free to PM Acacia Ruskin to plot her stay.

Potential Plot Points:
    ❧ Her family finds her ~ Her family has never been listed, and Persephone might not even be her real name. What little facts that are mentioned of her family can be found in her profile. (They may think she's dead because she ran away right after the plague occurred.)
    ❧ She could find love. I'm open for an ACAB gentleman who she could potentially fall for and be willing to stay in the area for.
    ❧ Former friends find her and connections are remade. Basically, similar to the concept of her family finding her.
    ❧ Other random reasons that might make this carnie stay are open for discussion as well.

    A friend from Hogwarts, (Dev attended 1864-1871 and was in Gryffindor but house doesn't matter, friends would be academically inclined, probably,) to reach out through mail following the rumor that he's alive. Ideally this will result in Dev having someone to dig up his own grave with.

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.

A Secret Admirer for Somersby Fudge

Somersby went on the CYOA this summer. He was mentioned in WW as not being likely to survive - and then for surviving. While he was not among those that solved the curse, he was in the Casino till the end.

That being said he's back in school now. Looking for a girl in years 2-5 who might know of him and have formed a crush on him and now thinks he's a hero. She should be the type who might randomly drop him love letters or notes saying he's a hero.

My true goal here is to make Somersby feel plenty awkward, so if you are on board or have additional ideas or questions - hit me up.

Wanted for Errington Warbeck
Erri is a confirmed bachelor that happily lives a secluded, hermit life on his enchanted winery in Hawthorn Hallow, Irvingly. He's a serious bookkeeper sort that is a seer - but only has visions about business ventures. He tells it like he sees it and has no interest in idle chit-chat.

Possible Love Interest
  • Male
  • Age is open. Could be an interesting dynamic if it were someone quite a bit younger than he.
  • Intelligent
  • Likes wine
  • I'm pretty open as I'd like to thread him with men who match the above requirements and just see where it goes. He might fight me and decide he's #aloneforever.

Girl after his $$$
  • LC/MC
  • Any age, could be a widower.
  • She could know he's gay and threaten to out him OR she could have a crush on him and not realize he's gay and be after marriage OR she doesn't care either way and just wants to marry successfully. A plot where she's a lesbian and they marry each other but have outside relationships could be interesting as well. His mom keeps pushing him to get married. His winery is named after his mom, so like... he cares about her a lot.

Wealthy businessmen/investors
  • Aside from his winery, he's also got an impressive portfolio of financial advisory. Since the fog however, he hasn't had a single vision. Did the fog steal it? He doesn't know, but he's worried he'll lose all of his clients if he tells them. I'd like some plot potential here to explore this - does he tell them? Does he lie and make educated guesses about what they should do? Does he fail his business? Does he ever get his visions back?

On the last day of 1887 (aka New Year's Eve), Souri and another lady got astoundingly sloshed. They could have been friends prior to this (which would make her WCAB) or strangers commiserating for some reason on the holiday (ACAB in this case - and it'd be really interesting if she were prominent in society and had more to lose than Souri). In any case - they get handsy with each other and are caught! A scandal of some yet undetermined size is stirred up at the revelation of this. There's some kind of fall out and now everything's horribly awkward/tense/uncomfortable in some way. This could go a few ways:

1.) They both like each other but are mortified at having their business aired so now everything's weird.
2.) They don't like (or are indifferent to) each other but still have to deal with the whispers, comments, period appropriate homophobia, etc.
3.) Everything is awkward and they'd rather not see each other, but can't avoid it now for some reason.
4.) Something else that involves suffering the consequences of not behaving according to Victorian standards.

Handsome has a serious lack of...men...in his life. Okay, so he's got a few, but most of them are quidditch buddies, drinking buddies, or both - and none of those will work for this plot :P

Whether you like the movie or not, The Greatest Showman has a catchy af soundtrack that has the unfortunate side-effect of giving me plot ~ideas at a time when I probably shouldn't be trying to articulate my thoughts.

Okay, so here's the actual idea now that I'm done rambling:
    Handsome is a recent Hogwarts graduate with no direction in life, so naturally he followed his friends into the quidditch field. Unfortunately, he just doesn't have the same passion as the others, so even if he was good enough to climb to first string, it's not a job he's likely to stay in past his early twenties. At the same time, though, he feels like he has to be useful - whatever he means by that (I haven't figured it out yet).

    Your character is a MCAB gentleman 28+ (preferably 35+, but I'll take what I can get~) who's one of the following: a failing businessman, a budding businessman, or just a Dude With An Idea who has very little funds to turn that idea into a business. Their product/idea is either considered unprofitable, weird/eccentric, "too ahead of the times", etc. - anything that would turn away experienced business investors, but not so awful that it would turn off an eighteen-year-old with too much money on his hands.

    (Can you see where I'm going with this? Yay/Nay?)

    OBVIOUSLY the plot will be based around the characters themselves - their personalities, their dynamic, etc. - so I'm not going to flesh out a full plot that might not fit either one of them in the end. I've been looking for something for Handsome that doesn't revolve around being a recovering alcoholic so...plot with me? :P

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.)
