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:

Carson Bixby for Sloane Bixby. You can take the middle-aged man out of quidd—oh, apparently you can't.
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...

Miss Lucille Flint
Lucille Flint





Debutante
Hufflepuff [1880-1887]
Single
02.07.1869
UCPB
Rep. 8

Commonly known as Lucy, Or Lu-silly behind her back by friends, she is an outgoing young woman prone to flights of fancy and getting carried away. She lacks sense and sensibility but is an extremely sweet well intentioned young lady who sees a love story in everything. She is also known because her cousin @"Bella Scrimegeour" lived with her and her mother at Flint Manor this past year.

Friends: Lucy's best friends are @”helga scamander” and @”nora abercrombie” but she has other friends beyond that as she is a very likeable going lady.
Fre-enemies: Being a deb is a cat eat cat world, I'm sure we have some mean girl action going on in those ballrooms. Do you have someone who thinks Lucy is just an attention hogging dumb blond but is two faced about It? Let me know she could use a few of those in her life.
Rivals: Similar to the above, except these young ladies and her are not exactly the nicest to each other. I'd love to see some tension in a ballroom with her.
Hurls: Lucy is not always the most sensible in her matches. While she is supposed to be looking for an ucpb match suitable to an heiress like herself I'd love to see her get carried away with someone below her station. Send all the girls her way, literally.




Miss Nimiane Bellchant
Nimiane Bellchant





Secret Author
Squib
Spinster
03.14.1860
UCPB
Rep. 7

Nimiane was born into an ucpb family, however, as she is a squib she was educated at home and only had a few friends from her childhood who knew her before her family began the rumors that she was very sickly. As she never attended Hogwarts, it was said she was privately tutored at home due to her illnesses, she hadn’t expected to debut but did. By the end of the season she was engaged and then her secret was made public and the rumors began circulating. She remained out for a few years but by the time she turned 25 she had mostly retired to a cottage her parents had built for her in Irvingly. Most of her spare time is spent writing under the pen name Isolde Bennett, a well known best selling author. She’s rather quiet, but often polite, and looking to bond with nonmagical residents of Irvingly.

Friends: Nimiane doesn’t have many at the moment, she’s had a few in the past (if you are one hit me up). She could use a few going forward ‘cause as reclusive as her tendencies they are more because she just thinks people don’t want to spend time with her.
Acquaintances: Are you a resident of Irvingly, Nimiane would love to get to know you. She could use people to talk to after all.
Non hurls: Nimiane is a spinster, as such she isn’t expecting or looking for love. But if you dare be hurled at a society outcast who keeps to herself, by all means send your hurls at Nimiane.
Plot Ideas: I have several plot ideas and adoptables for Nimiane so keep an eye out for updates.



Mister Kenton Yaxley
Kenton Yaxley




Plants & Poisoning Healer -
St. Mungo’s
Single
01.01.1867
UCPB
Rep. 9

Kenton was born the youngest child to the Yaxley family. As the second son he has long chafed against his perceived dunce of an elder brother, feeling that the Yaxley inheritance is rightfully his. Setting out to prove himself he tried to obtain better marks than his brother in school and set himself into a career. He tends to be a bit abrasive and often believes himself better than most. His closest friend in school was @”Phoebe Yaxley” who is now his sister-in-law.

Friends: He doesn’t have many friends, but is a member of Black’s and likely has been known to socialize with gentleman of the same standing and age as himself. I.e. Early to Mid 20s UCPB.  He may have grown up with them or gotten to know them at Black’s
Co-Workers: Do you work at St. Mungo’s? You likely know Kenton. But do you like him? Probably not. Have an idea? Let me know!
Hurls: Kenton isn’t looking to love or a wife, but he may be looking for a fling or two. I’m willing to try it out. He does have his eye on someone, but she’s not available at the moment (he’s hoping to remedy that).












Mister Percival Adlard, Jr.
Percival Adlard Jr.






MoM - DoMC
Hufflepuff [1868-1875]
Single
07.03.1857
MCHB
Rep. 10

Percy works for the ministry in the Dept. R&COMC - Beast Division Employee. He was never really ambitious but he is incredibly loyal. He tends to be at social events as a chaperon for his youngest sister,@”Felicity Adlard”, or let’s be honest, if either Lissy or Cat drag him out. He’s a sucker for those two. He had a long lost love story from his school days so he’s only just started to consider looking for a family again. He tends to be on the quieter, and sometimes awkward-er side of things, and adores people watching, but really he’s very kind and caring.

Friends: Percy has his close group of friends from school, Mason Skeeter and Quincey Honeyduke, but what he really needs are some friends he'd made since he became an adult and did adultlike things. Like work.
Old Schoolmates: Did you go to school with Percy? Friends, enemies? Did you know his close school friend (almost sweetheart) Margaret “Maggie” Whittmore in Gryffindor? Hit me up.
Enemies: It can’t all be sunshine and rainbows so send your less than happy with Percy people his way.
Hurls:  Percy is often at social events so he’d likely run into your mcab and ucab debs. He’s free so send them his way! He might be completely and adorably confused by their attention but his sisters swear he’s a catch. Did his sister Felicity Adlard attempt to matchmake you with Percy? Let us know.



Mister Rufus Bixby
Rufus Bixby






Chaser - Puddlemere United
Gryffindor [1875-1882]
Single
04.06.1864
MCHB
Rep. 8

Rufus is from the Bixby family, a well known quidditch family. His father once played professionally and is now a professional coach, and his younger brothers are all equally quidditch obsessed. Rufus played on the Gryffindor house team from the years 1876-1882, he is known as a friendly outgoing guy and quite the ladies’ man.

Friends: Being outgoing Rufus could really use some friends. He’s pretty close with Thomas Tilcott who plays for Puddlemere but there’s room for friends from school and since he’s graduated. Also there’s room for friendly acquaintances.
Teammates: Do you play for Puddlemere United too? Do you get along with Rufus or have a problem with him?
Fans: Feel like fangirling, want to follow him around like the creepy stalker you are, follow his exploits in WW? Let me know.
Enemies: Are you on a rival team, have a reason not to like Rufus, I’m open to ideas.
Hurls: Rufus isn’t looking for hurls at the moment. He’s got his eye on Fortuna Lockhart but he’s also had quite a few mentions in Witch Weekly. He knows he can’t support a family at the moment. But if you’d like to throw someone his way I’m open to the drama that might come from it.


Miss Caroline Delaney
Caroline Delaney






Debutante
Thunderbird [1880-1887]
Single
06.03.1869
MCHB
Rep. _

An American debutante Caroline and her brother Shawn Delaney came across the pond looking for his fiance (@"Imogen McFausty") after Shawn turns up alive. Caroline, however, fully intends to have an adventure while she is here and is on a mission to find a husband. She’s charming and sweet (and a bit fierce - not that she let’s many people see that side of her). Her father also owns a very successful shipping business that operates out of Boston.

Friends: Caroline doesn’t know anyone and she’s looking to make friends this season at gatherings.
Rivals/Enemies: Americans aren’t exactly the most liked by British society. As such I’d love to see her have some tensions with other debs who think she doesn’t belong.
Hurls: She’s looking for a respectable British husband and she has high expectations but don’t let that deter you send the hurls her way. She’s sweet and charming and while she’s looking for UC she might just settle for a kind MC.










Mister Asha Bilton
Asha Bilton





Daily Prophet Photographer
Hufflepuff Dropout [1871-1872]
Complicated
08.17.1860
WCMB
Rep. 5

Asha might be the single most unlucky wizard out there. He’s a known bastard who has lost most of his family in some way or other. He has a heart of gold is as optimistic as they come. He’s entangled himself with the Revs and seems to have turned over a new leaf in his life.

Friends: I'm sure that he has friends outside of the Revs, or maybe past friends, anyway send them my way.
Revs: He's been chilling at the Augurey since '82, I know they are in the same group but do you love him, hate him, tolerate him?
Enemies: Alright so if you are always getting into trouble you are bound to have enemies somewhere, I'm guessing Asha has made plenty over the years. Open to any and all possibilities.
Hurls: Asha's wife ran off years ago and so if you are interested in some hurling and plotting opportunities with a guy who has a heart full of gold, just let me know.










Carnie - Game Runner, Procurer of ‘Things’,
& Winged Horse Trainer
Single
04.17.1859
WCHB
Rep. 4

Ri has grown up with the carnival. He’s friendly with those whom he knows but to others he comes off as shady and intimidating. He’s often getting himself into tight situations and sometimes has a loose idea of morals.

Friends: Are you a member of the carnival? Well that you probably know Ri and he likely considers you family.
Customers: Do you need something that’s not easily obtained? Ri can probably get it to you.
Enemies: I would love for him to rub people the wrong way. Let me know.
Hurls: He’s just looking for a good time everywhere he goes. Open for any short term hurling or bad decisions you’d like to make this summer.












Miss Sisse Thompsett
Sisse Thompsett




1st Year Student
Gryffindor [1887-Now]
Single
06.14.1876
MCHB
Rep. 10

Sisse led a rather sheltered childhood, secluded in her childhood home in Hogsmeade with her older brother and younger brother. She tends to be very friendly and cheerful. While she's also very prim and proper although inclined to daydream about careers that may not be so lady like. She's quick to change dreams from week to week. When she started at Hogwarts she became close friends with Sloane Bixby and Calla Potts along with many of the Gryffindor girls in her year.

Friends: Sisse has a good group of friends. She gets along with almost anyone. So if you'd like her to add you to her social circle give a shout.
Fre-enemies: On the other side of things she really does have a lot of friends and I'd love to see her have some tension with her friends who may not be that close to her.
Enemies: So I doubt she actually has enemies but I'm sure there are people she dislikes out there. Feel free to let me know if you would like to be one of those.
Hurls: While Sisse is much too young to have anyone hurled at her she is getting to the age where she notices boys. I'd love to toy around with the idea of crushes for her as this begins to happen.

I have some things!

For Lucy: @'Finnian Connolly' is a hopeless romantic and has been falling for women left and right. He's a middle class, halfblood not-great-at-his-job healer, so would qualify for the not appropriate to her station hurl. We could toss them in a thread together and see how they get along? I think the easiest scenario would be to have her catch a magical bug, or have a friend who she's visiting have one, and they can get to know each other through that. Let me know what you think!

For Percy: Barnabas Skeeter works at the Ministry and their school years would have overlapped for a bit. He'd mostly an asshat and there was that whole women's dueling thing (more info in his rep + profile), so not sure how Percy would feel about him.

For Rufus: Declan Wood plays for Hogsmeade and has a similar personality type. I think friendly rivalry plus friends outside of quidditch could work?

Porphyria Dempsey might be a potential friend for Nimiane! Though they wouldn't have met at Hogwarts, they are the same age, Phryi's a published poet so they could chat literature, and she would find Nimiane's reclusive life way more mysterious and cool and interesting than Nimiane probably does xD

Calliope Riley is a bit old & not a deb to be a bitch to your debs, buuuut she does like being catty without a cause so I'm offering her up in case any of your girls want to make an enemy of her at an event. She'd be especially derisive to an American, I think xD

Elias Grimstone is also friendly with Quin so may well also know Percy! He was WC during school but is also generally awkward at events/mostly goes for the free food. I don't have many Ministry dudes at the moment but Sarah Townsend is a Welcome Witch there and I think was in the same year/house as him at Hogwarts, so whether or not he remembered her, she'd be friendly!

❧ Elias makes brooms so knows most of the quidditch world, aaand Tybalt Kirke is a former Gryff, so friend/quidditch rival for Rufus? Tyb would tease him endlessly about his WW features.

❧ I already threw Jude into your Asha thread, aand my only other WC person is Sarah (who is also from a family of bastard children with an iffy rep) xD

Te, I love the idea of throwing Lucy and Finnian together. Perhaps once the season is in swing I shall toss a thread up for them?

Percy and Barney could be interesting. I suspect that Percy would tolerate Barney but internally be annoyed by him and the whole women's dueling thing. (He's secretly a women's rights person thanks to his younger sisters) I think I mild toleration from both would be reasonable.

Yes! Love the idea of Declan and Rufus. Would totally be down for a bros night type thread if you were.

Love this idea. To clarify, is Porphyria Dempsey thinking of becoming friends when they were both out for seasons or before or since? Additionally I think I shall likely keep Nimmie in Irvingly most of the time with only rare trips to Hogsmeade, would that work for Porphyria?

I'd love to see Calliope Riley and Caroline Delaney develop as enemies.

Elias Grimstone sounds great for Percy since they have similar personalities and are both friends with Quin. Sarah Townsend would be someone Percy would be friendly with since he tends to remember people. More a people watcher than a people person.

Yes and Yes to Rufus and Elias and Tybalt Kirke . Additionally Rufus has a younger brother (Alvin, who is not played yet) who is also just starting as a broommaker so perhaps Elias knows Alvin as a talking point for Rufus? I'd love to have a thread with Ty ribbing Rufus for his WW features. That sounds most excellent.

Thank you by the way, I've been lazy about replying so I shall have to get on that. Sarah could be fun with Asha. Does she hang around the Revs much? Would they already know each other or would we need to do a meet cute?

Porphyria absolutely wouldn't have dropped her when the rumours started going around, so they might have even become better friends when Nimmie's secret was out. And Irvingly is fine, Phyri's in Ireland but she wouldn't mind being the one doing the visiting!

❧ Ah yeah that's great, I'm sure Elias would know of Alvin! And Tybalt would love to xD

Just give me a shout with whatever things you wanna do first and which I should start <3

So sorry for the delay here.

Yes, I could see Porphyria Dempsey and Nimiane Bellchant becoming friends over the Seasons. Perhaps they exchange letters now. I would totally love to have a thread with them but I think we shall have to hold off on that until the Fog clears.

Re: Sarah, just let me know what you are thinking. If it's in London Asha shall be down with it. I have determined he can't apperate.

Haha no worries! Sarah's kicking around in Hogsmeade during the fog, and yeah you're probably right about fog re: Phyri and Nimiane, but if you like we can start with Phyri sending her some letters in the meantime? :)
