Did you know?

Victorians could hire 'professional mourners' to attend their loved one's funeral. These people would partake in the procession and were not allowed to speak, just look awfully sad! — Rune

WANTED:

"The Prodigal Sister" for Ophelia Devine. Faked deaths, scandal, and schemes!
Kristoffer was going to be great at this, because he was great at everything. Also his memory was greater than everyone else's, because he bet no one else had ever lost their virginity somewhere exotic like Morocco. Hell, he bet no one else had even lost their virginity. Inexperienced losers.

Magical Trades?

What are examples of "magical trades" (whether in HP canon or something you can think of~) beyond wand-making, broom-making, and metal-charming? I need a magical trade for a character and idk if I'm into any of those three!


I'll burn that bridge when I get to it.

Any muggle trade that can be made cooler via magic — toymaking, brewing, cauldron smithing, masonry, etc.

I've always kind of headcanoned that you can hire professional illusionists for short term jobs or events. Like for one of "Armando's" parties there were illusory dragons flying around, and Ophelia def hired that out because she didn't even get an OWL in Charms :P

Also any magical item you can think of would need to be created and maintained by a magical craftsman, so "pensieve peddler" could totally be a trade. Or anything else you can think of.

is it a crime to love too well?
To bear too tender, or too firm a heart, to act a lover's or a Roman's part?
Is there no bright reversion in the sky, for those who greatly think, or bravely die?

I wonder if they have an equivalent to the Guild of Master Craftsmen actually? Slightly off-topic but it would be interesting, and a good alternative for WC kids who can't afford Hogwarts, to become apprentices to masters and it's good networking!
