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

WANTED:

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...

First, big thanks to Lynn for the Networking coding! Much appreciated!



Second, I suck at these things, ngl, but I'm realizing that most of my characters have very limited relationships at the moment so I'd like to establish existing relationships and possible plots for them all. Don't hesitate to suggest things if you have something particular in mind! I'm up for most anything more often than not and love some good drama/angst! So get at me!



You can comment here for generic establishing of things. Or if you have an idea you'd rather be more private, you can message me or hit me up on Skype! I try not to pre-plot romance though could be swayed if it is a particularly interesting plot. Sometimes things can work out well that way but I do like to have an initial couple of threads to make sure things can mesh well.



Potioneer

Ravenclaw

Unattached

12.13.64

UCPB

Rep 9

Agrimony is a bit wary and paranoid, especially when it comes to women, after finding out his mother had tried poisoning him. As such, he can come off a bit cold but does try to be social when he can.
  • Friends- Agrimony needs established friends, ones he stays with from time to time when he's feeling particularly paranoid about an attempt on his life. With a late birthday, he graduated in 1883. Friends can be within that range. He's not particularly a purist even if his family is so friends can be ABAC really. He would have started staying at friends' homes randomly after 1886.
  • Potioneers- Or anyone that may have an interest in potions. He's written books and done extensive research mainly focusing on antidotes. Established fans or colleagues in branches of potions would be fab.
  • Hurls: He's nowhere near old enough to take a wife though hurling opportunities will never be turned down, especially since they make him feel super uncomfortable and awkward.



Beast Div. Head

Slytherin

Unattached

07.30.56

UCHB

Rep 8

Clint is a bit of a shameless flirt with no real intentions of taking a wife anytime. While most may think he's flighty upon first meeting him, he's a different story when it comes to his job. He's very ambitious and works really hard for all he has. He rarely spends money and simply saves all he has and, as such, has yet to buy an actual home.
  • Friends- Established friends would be grand! He definitely keeps his friends close and is loyal to them. He graduated in 1874 and has worked in the Beast Division ever since. He became the Head in 1886 and is now eyeing the Assistant Head of the entire department quite ambitiously.
  • Coworkers/Employees- He's a pretty strict boss and doesn't let up on any of his employees directly underneath them. He also wouldn't hesitate to push to have someone fired if he felt they weren't up to par. As such, they probably love him or hate him.
  • Hurls: While he has no intention of marrying before his older brother, hurls are always welcome. It would take a very special lady to truly catch his eye, though. He has no true type other than "pretty."



Cursebreaker

Gryffindor

Unattached

03.03.59

UCPB

Rep 9

Davey boy is a bit hopeless when it comes to women and could probably even be considered a bit immature. He likes a good laugh and lives life with a reckless abandon. He's the third son so isn't really anticipating any sort of inheritance so simply likes to live life day by day and enjoys it immensely.
  • Friends- He's a friendly dude and has made many friends over the years regardless of blood or class. Another late birthday, Hawke likes them apparently so he graduated in 1878. He played as a Keeper for the house team starting in 1875 and found himself as the captain in 1876-1878.
  • Coworkers- Fellow Cursebreakers or past cursebreakers. I imagine they're a tight nit sorta group at times so I'd like to establish some connections there.
  • Hurls- David sucks with women. Like..legit can barely talk to them. He gets all tongue tied and stumbles over words. It gets better over time, if the lady in question is able to stick around long enough to continue talking to him. He's not really looking to get married right away but I'm open to plans/plots.



Debutante

Slytherin

Unattached

10.03.66

UCPB

Rep 9

Louisa is a very particular and confident young woman. She knows what she wants and will get what she wants if she can help it. She has a type A sort of personality and has a hard time relinquishing control in anything of her life. She refuses to settle for anything less than she wants and will quite happily become a spinster until the right man comes along.
  • Friends- She probably has very few close friends as she is quite particular even on those she keeps close to her. She does, however, have "minions" that she uses to do her bidding from time to time.
  • Enemies- These are probably more than friends. She is a bit blunt and isn't always the nicest so there are surely a few of these around. Even if it's just a one sided bit of loathing, it could still have potential.
  • Hurls- Throw 'em at me! She is very particular of her men but it doesn't stop me from wanting all the hurls.



Engineer

Gryffindor

Unattached

03.03.62

UCHB

Rep 9

Riff is a bit quirky and often seems to be in his own little world. And though propriety was all but beat into him from a young age, he very much loves to get his hands dirty with working on machines. He's very smart but not the most street smart. He tends to get lost in thoughts and often zones out when speaking to others if they aren't particularly invigorating in speech. He's also quite charming without realizing it, simply be being his genial, fun loving self.
  • Friends- He's made many friends in his life of all walks of life. He's definitely a friendly sort so would easily be approached by anyone.
  • Employers- While he works independently, he often contracts out for those in need of his services. He writes up plans for different machines and the like and can also work on existing ones to fix any problems.
  • Hurls- He's not quite ready to take a wife but any hurls are welcomes. Perhaps even girls he's charmed unknowingly that still hold a candle to him. Throw them at me!



Socialite

Slytherin

Married

03.13.67

UCPB

Rep 9

Phoebe is a bit of a handful and tends to tell things like they are. She's not ashamed in the slightest of any of the things she does. She's conceited and materialistic, liking all the finer things of life. She's not afraid to delegate or take change and often does so within her household.
  • Friends- Few and far between, she's a bit of a snob. Only UCPBs need apply and only those who can stand her arrogance and bad behaviors.
  • Enemies- Have a wife with an unfaithful husband, she's probably slept with him. Scorned lover that she's dismissed? Throw them at me.
  • Lovers- She's been taking them consistently since she was married in 1885. She takes a new one each season, whichever young man that catches her eye most during the start of the season though often discards them after. In between those times, she'll take other men to bed though rarely with consistent frequency.
  • Plots- I'd love for her husband and brother in law to be played, both of which have a plottable ad up!








HiC Creature Injuries Hogsmeade

Gryffindor

Single

11.03.55

MC"MB"

Rep 9

A workaholic through and through, he's a man devoted to his job. He was saddled with a family secret right after graduating from Hogwarts and he's had a hard time with it. Though he's made the secret to his mother, he feels that everyone should know especially since everyone's of age. He, however, refuses to be the one to spill it. Until then, he'll continue working his life away and paying attention to little else.
  • Friends- Dude needs some bros. Bros of a like mind that aren't worried about trying to find a wife or thinking they need to pester him about it. That doesn't mean they have to be single, too, though. They can be married, just not.. the meddlesome sort. At least, blatantly so.
  • Employees/Colleagues- He's been working at Hogsmeade since it's opening and became the AH of Creature Induced Injuries in '82 and then the HiC the beginning of '88. He's an easy enough man to get along with and works a lot so he's around a lot.
  • Hurls- He needs all the hurls. He's going to be thirty-three and has never even remotely come close to getting serious with a woman. He rarely attends events though and prefers to spend his hours at work instead. But, he's definitely a great catch and very much able to take a wife if a lady could just capture his attention for long enough.



Matchmaker

Ravenclaw

Engaged

08.13.67

MCHB

Rep 9

Felicity is a self proclaimed matchmaker and a daddy's girl. She has been engaged for a couple years but has yet to set a date because, while she does really enjoy her fiance's company, she's not entirely sure he's the one. She's been crushing quite seriously on one of her brother's friends and he's the one person she seems to have a hard time not being chatty around otherwise she's quite the talker. She enjoys a good party and good laughs but equally loves quiet time spent at home simply reading to her father or working on anything considered a feminine art.
  • Friends- There's a quartet of girls that became friends in their first year on the ride to Hogwarts via the boats. They were all on the same boat and quickly became fast friends. Even though they all ended up in different houses, they remained friends through their Hogwarts years and continued on after. She's also a friendly enough girl she'd surely have a variety of other friends though none are as close as the girls she started school with in 1878.
  • Matchmaking Targets- Most think that since she's already engaged, she pursues matchmaking so others feel the success and happiness she does. Really, she does it as a means to fill her time. She'd probably start silently meddling wherever she could if she felt someone need that little bit of help.



HiC PPP St. Mungos

Gryffindor

Complicated

03.03.57

MCHB

Rep 8

Fletcher is a pretty easy going man though typically puts his job above all else and did so for years. As such, his mother and sister started to try playing matchmaker for him only for him to find his own lady. He's taken quite the fancy to Eavan MacKay but has yet to really tell his family about her or even introduce them! He also has a Yorkshire Terrier named Tink that he dotes on like one would a baby.
  • Friends- Dude needs some bros. Ones he can talk to about lady troubles and the like. He started at Hogwarts in 1868 and was a prefect. He's neither purist or classist so would easily befriend anyone within that same time range.
  • Employees/Colleagues- He's been working at St. Mungo's since his internship in 1874, specifically in the Potions and Plant Poisoning Department. He became the Assistant Head of the department in 1883 and was just recently promoted to Healer in Charge. He takes his job seriously and works quite frequently. He runs a tight ship and likes to keep it that way but certainly doesn't treat any of his direct employees badly.
  • Hurls- While he's pretty smitten with Eavan, drama can always be a fun thing!



Research Writer/Editor

Ravenclaw

Unattached

08.22.66

MCHB

Rep 8

Tuni is a sweetheart of a girl with a big smile and even bigger dimples. She's very intelligent and reads books for fun. She has a big fascination for all things ancient and can easily spew off random facts about different ancient civilizations, both muggle and wizarding. Her father married a girl younger than she is during the Amortentia Tea Scandal in 1882. As a result, she's not the biggest fan of either and avoids home when she can.
  • Friends- She definitely needs some friends, old and new. She started school in 1877 and was a prefect. She's always been a bit bubbly and friendly so would have made friends easily enough. She's had a bit of drama in her life and could really use someone she could go to talk to about.
  • Employers- She currently works a freelance job purely via owl where she takes in research notes from others and rewrites them into legible and coherent forms to either be published or added into said person's own database.
  • Hurls- While she's pretty taken with a certain Quidditch player, there were probably others in the past that were chased off by either her father or her brother for whatever reason. Her father probably made threats and Lock is simply a giant of a man so pretty imposing as is.



Wandmaker

Ravenclaw

Unattached

06.03.54

MCPB

Rep 9

Gideon is known for being a bit eccentric and incredibly smart. He knows several languages and spends a lot of time in his half of the family business in Hogsmeade. If he isn't at the wand shop, he's off around the world procuring items to make new wands.
  • Friends- Gideon only went to school through his OWLs before being pulled to start focusing on the family craft of wand making. He was a bit bitter about having to leave school early but likely maintained whatever friendships he would have made in his five years at school (1865-1870). He's likely made more friends since then, especially after inheriting the Hogsmeade shop in 1884.
  • Past Flings- He's a rather charismatic and confident man despite being a bit eccentric. He also enjoys all types of women and doesn't discriminate in the slightest so long as no attachments are made.
  • Hurls: While he isn't interested in settling down, I'm all about dem hurls. His big brother got engaged and he thinks it's the worst idea ever so naturally he needs all the hurls. Throw all the lovely ladies at him for him to flirt with and try not to form emotions over!



Co-Manager/Adeventurer

Ravenclaw

Unattached

04.23.62

MCHB

Rep 8

Jameson is all about adventure and living life to the fullest. He enjoys trying out different flavor combinations for the family's distillery and is never one to balk at a challenge. With his brother already engaged, he knows all eyes will be on him eventually but he's not entirely sure how he feels about settling down. He just wants to travel and drink.
  • Friends- Throw any bros at him from school. He was in Ravenclaw and graduated in 1880. He's a friendly sort so probably made a handful of friends at least during his time at school though he's definitely made some along the way through his travels and while drinking.
  • Drinking Buddies- These are definitely friends of a closer sort, ones he doesn't mind using as taste testers for his latest combination concoctions. Could be from school or could have been made in a more recent time, regardless, they're men he trusts to give him their honest opinions on his flavors.
  • Hurls- Throw all the eligible ladies at him. He's not picky in regards to blood or class. Just beware the interfering family who will likely meddle if they see the need.



Owner of Magdalena's

Hufflepuff

Married

05.03.67

MCHB

Rep 5

Maggie's life is currently a bit of a mess. She just eloped the middle of last month so she could receive a hefty inheritance from her late grandparents she actually never knew. A stipulation had been found within the will stating her sister and she would only receive the sum upon the changing of their last name, still holding a grudge for the way their parents had all but eloped. So..she eloped. Not for love the way her parents did but for convenience. She's now a not so happy business owner trying to figure things out without the aid of her family.
  • Friends- She was always a pretty reserved girl and was made fun of from time to time so always kept her guard up. She would have made a few close friends though that relationship can now be strained because she told no one what her plans were with Lorcan and it will all be coming out in spectacular fashion via Witch Weekly.
  • Enemies- Over the years, she got a bit harder and not as nice so she's probably made a few enemies along the way with her curt behavior of trying to keep people away. Some may even take it to a new level now that she's jumped a class and owns her own bakery in Diagon Alley.
  • Hurls- While she's technically married, it was purely for convenience or so they're claiming. In the meantime, all hurls are welcome for added drama. Come in and flirt with her in her shop. She probably won't recognize it as flirting but Lorcan surely will.



Ship Captain/Merchant

Wampus

Unattached

01.23.55

MCHB

Rep 8

The salt water of the sea seems to run through Shawn's veins. He loves being out on a ship and traveling through the ocean waters. He's an American originating from Boston who hasn't been dealt the easiest of hands in life. He fell in love in 1879, got engaged in 1882 and went missing at sea in 1883. All but Caro, his little sister, assumed him dead until he wandered into the family's importing business in 1887. Caro then convinced him that surely his fiance, Imogen, would have held out the same hope she had and so they head to Britain at the beginning of 1888 in the hopes of finding her and possibly branching out the family's business into London.
  • Friends- He needs to make some friendships! He probably has some back in America but as they'll likely be staying in London, he needs to make some locally. Once coming to terms with the fact his fiance married another, he'll definitely need so male interaction to keep him sane and possibly push him into the direction of other ladies.
  • Enemies- He's bound to have some whether due to opposing importing companies or just the fact that he's an American tainting the British soil. He's not really one to sit back and take things though so be prepared for confrontation.
  • Hurls- Throw them all at him. He needs someone to take his mind off of what happened with Imogen. He'll likely not settle for anything less than love but anything is free game!



Magizoologist Healer

Thunderbird

Unattached

12.03.62

MCHB

Rep 7

Una is a bubbly, fun and adventurous sort of girl. She's an American that is quite well traveled and loves animals/creatures with a fierce passion. She seems to accumulate injured creatures as pets and currently has a three legged jarvey named Fergus and a runt of a fwooper named Aoife. She currently works at the Podmore Zoological Gardens in Irvingly with a special pet project featuring Oscar the Erumpent. She's also a metamorph!
  • Friends- She could certainly use some friendly faces, especially after the way Witch Weekly put her on blast. Someone that can talk her out of staying blonde and reverting back to her vibrant red headed self!
  • Enemies- There's certainly quite a few that dislike her simply based on who she is: A red headed American with meta abilities that never bothers with a chaperone and has made a living travelling to exotic locations working with creatures of all kinds.
  • Hurls- Though there's a plot afoot with a friend coming back into her life, adding some drama to her life is always fun!





Artist & Florist

Ravenclaw

Unattached

10.13.68

MCHB

Rep 8

Zinnia is well known for having some of the best floral arrangements at The Florist Potts, her family's shop. She's a smart girl with an artistic sort of eye. She loves to sketch and paint as well, focusing primarily on water colors. Most of her artwork consists of landscapes and florals but she's started branching out into portraits. She's sweet and kind, if not a bit timid.
  • Friends- Girl needs some friends from her days at school. She graduated just last year in 87 and was certainly friendly enough to have made a few friends at least.
  • Customers- She makes pretty floral arrangements for the family shop and likely has built up clientele that will only purchase arrangements made by her. She's also quite the artist so could have made a few customers that come to her specifically for art, especially now that she's started doing portraits. She also has a lonely plot specifically for her portraits.
  • Hurls- She's a bit awkward and timid when it comes down to it but she needs to find herself a man! It would likely be a slow burn sort of thing to build up over time. But..she's a funny and sweet girl when it comes down to it and is pleasantly attractive so throw all those dudes at her! Pref MCAB!








6th Year Prefect

Gryffindor

Unattached

10.23.70

WCHB

Rep 7

Emmeline's grandfather was the original founder of Hogsmeade and so she's lived in the small town nearly all her life, having moved there a couple of years before the great migration. Her father lost the family's namesake of the Three Broomsticks in 1877 when so many moved to Hogsmeade. It saw the family drop in rep and class while causing quite the rift within the family. She's a very sweet girl who tends to fall into the naive category.
  • Friends- She's about to finish up her sixth year at Hogwarts and is currently a prefect. She could certainly use some established friends and even new ones!
  • Housemates- Throw all the Gryffindors at her, especially younger ones that could use some extra help in things. Girl wants the Head Girl spot so anything to help her gain it threadwise is a bonus!
  • Hurls- Obviously she's not out yet so legit hurls leading to marriage won't work just yet but I'm all for prehurls! She had her first crush of sorts on Mundungus MacFusty and even resulted in her first kiss from him thanks to the mistletoe debacle. She spent most of the last semester of school avoiding him, though, and ended up focusing on school work and the like so the crush has slowly started to fade.

Lady's Maid

Hufflepuff

Unattached

06.13.63

WCHB

Rep 9

Marli is a sweet young woman that comes from a family of Glassblowers. She never could quite get the hang of doing bigger pieces but is rather artistic and makes quite beautiful glass beads for jewelry instead. She left school right after receiving her OWLs to help the family with money and has worked for the Bellchant family since. She now resides in Irvingly with Nimiane Bellchant!
  • Friends- Anyone from her time at school as she was certainly a friendly girl. Currently anyone in Irvingly that would get along with her. She's met several from working at the Irvingly markets every Saturday with her family!
  • Enemies- Anyone that may not take kindly to her colored skin, working class position or even the fact that she's a Lady's Maid to a known squib and spinster!
  • Hurls- She currently has formed a crush on Josiah Rohlwing even though she doesn't even know his name! Still totally open to any and all other hurls!





Bartender at ABC

Gryffindor

Unattached

01.01.60

WCHB

Rep 5

Raymond is Bahorel of the Revs. He's rough and gruff and definitely doesn't look like the most welcoming of men. He is, however, very loyal to those he calls friends and is most certainly one you can count on to have your back if the need arises. He boxes in backstreet boxing rings and has for many years, slowly building a name for himself. He lives in a little flat in London with his four brothers, all of them working together (most of the time) to make it through their crazy life.
  • Friends- Outside of the Revs, he probably doesn't have many friends though some established from his small stint at school could be great. Otherwise, newly made friends are always a bonus!
  • Enemies- If you're wealthy and snobby, he's your enemy. He may also have beat said character in a boxing match and someone is bitter over the loss now.
  • Hurls- He's probably not the most approachable by a woman's standards so he'd need a pretty confident and hearty young woman to really draw his eye.



Incoming Firstie

TBD

Unattached

03.31.77

WCHB

Rep 10

Tansy is a sweet summer child that always smiles. She has a twin brother and they live above the family shop Twiflit & Tatting. She has her mother's seamstress abilities but falls into a more creative realm. She loves to draw and sketch and takes inspiration from all the things around her in everyday life. However, no one has actually seen her fashion sketches as she sincerely fears rejection.
  • Friends- Other local Hogsmeade kiddos, especially those that frequent High Street! She's kind and sweet so would be friendly to nearly any and everyone she encounters.
  • Enemies- Though she wouldn't actively be mean to anyone there are surely some that aren't nice to her as she's a WCHB. But despite being WC, her clothing always remains like new and in fantastic repair along with being in the styles of current fashion even if it isn't the highest quality fabric. This could surely rub both those of the less fortunate WC and those of the UC the wrong way.
  • Hurls- She's clearly to young for such a thing but random little crushes can always be fun!

I could see chaos or maybe even an odd sense of camaraderie. Their situations are a bit different but they've both been dealt a not so great hand as thanks to their parents. It could prove to be something of a bonding experience...

Heeey, Hawke! I'm here for stuff ;)
    Helga Scamander is coming after all your UC gentleman! She graduated last year as a Hufflepuff, and is a (technically non-purist) MCPB. She's likely to want to marry pureblood (or at least UC) simply because she wants to fit in with her wealthier friends! If you have a match that you think would be especially entertaining, hmu!

    Finnian Byrne has needs involving Maggie, obviously, but he might also know Clint and Fletcher. Clint was in his year, but is UC and a Slytherin, and Fletcher was a year below him, but a MCHB Gryffindor as well!

    ❧ I want a thread where Handsome Whitledge and Emmy "permanently" part ways at the Coming Out Ball or shortly before, depending on whether she's going to be there. ;)

    Albert Pettigrew is my viable hurling option for Lulu~

    Livia Crabbe needs to thread with Phoebe, eventually! I imagine a hate-mance or something (though it's unlikely Phoebe's slept with Livia's husband :P)

    ❧ I will get around to Tessa Darrow and Lissy sometime, I PROMISE. Lissy should totally try and pair Tessie with her brother because Tessie and Percy have met IC ;)

If I missed something you're interested in, hmu as well <3

If you'd like to, sure! And either way works. I'm pretty easy! Emmy is a prefect, too, if that makes a difference.

Beckett Longbottom would make a good bro for Clinton and/or Riff! I also think he and David were on the Gryffindor team together at some point, maybe just a year apart?

Are Felicity and Quin supposed to have history? I feel like they are and we should get into that.

Quin and Mason would be good bros for Fletcher!

Elsie and Tuni were in the same year at Hogwarts, could be friends?

Shawn and Leon could have some kind of professional relationship! Also Angie's getting a taste for sailing being on the Voyager, but she'd be a fling at best XD

Eileen and Raymond! #revs
