Did you know?

The Language of the Flowers was a popular method to express feelings where words might be improper, but did you know other means of doing so? Some ladies used their parasols, as well as their fans, gloves, and hankies to flirt with a gentleman (or alternatively, tell them to shove it!). — Bree

WANTED:

Ester Montgomery for Thomas Montgomery. The one that got away (with the pornographer...)
This boy, then. He wasn't new. Wasn't one of the worst people in the common room, those rotten rich boys - like Mr. Jailkeeper - who could not fathom a world beyond their own farts. Was a good working class lad, so he'd heard. Had a bit of a weird looking face, and a bit of a weird thing for preaching. Still.

man it's been so looooooong since I've had an Olivethread!

Idk how dickish Charles is but he kinda sounds like he'd get along with Calliope Riley, who I also have for your UC ladies but otherwise I'm low on ~society people. Maximiliaan De Vries is rich MC but also scouting UC families for a new wife if you want him for hurls!  

Tybalt Kirke would probs remember Spryly from Gryff quidditch days! He might have met Ishmael who also hangs with a group of criminals and does some black market trading in the shady parts of London, and would happily pay him for his blood if he ever needs to make some quick cash!

Theodore Gallivan's life is in the midst of taking a nosedive but Theo-squared obvs know each other from the Auror dept. He could also be friends with Tyb!

Ooh I'd love to see how Calliope and Charles get along! I think they could get on well but also potentially not but possibly in an entertaining way. I don't really know what I'm talking about but I feel enthusiastic.
So I totally thought you meant Maximiliaan as a hurl for Charles at first xD
Hurls-wise I only have Pet and Ada but if he's angling to stealth himself an UC wife then Ada's probably the more easily duped.

Spryly serIoUSly needs a cash injection after his maiming during the fog and would totally donate blood for easy money. As for Tybalt, Spyrly wants on a pro team so at some point provided he isn't too mangled although he probably wouldn't let that deter him from trying. Oh yeah the relevance of that is he might try asking for help or something with getting onto Tybalt's team.

Theo always needs more friends and I can't see why he wouldn't like either of them :P

Billie Farrow is the only one I have for you, unfortunately. Her and Hesper Gamp are around the same age. If Hesper ended up in Hogsmeade for some reason, they could probably run into one another. Sorry I don't have anyone else!

All of my menfolk need stuff particularly, I feel like Charles needs the most but he's technically got the most threads of them all, go figure? I think Charles/Calliope and Spryly/Ishmael are probably the juiciest options and if you're up for multiple threads, I am!

hiii olive! I have some options:

Theo & Edric Umbridge were very amusing in CYOA and I'd love for them to have some sort "there's a job to be done and everyone is on call except for us so let's go" sort of ~adventure-y thing.

I think a thread between Spryly & Bella Scrimgeour would be amusing because she was raised in the UC and can be a little too trusting at times, while Spryly is... less so. I also realize that Spryly's retcon means that they were house/year-mates now so that could be a reason why they might interact at all.

I offer Flora Mulciber as a friend for Hesper... whenever we get a chance to thread that. (Hogsmeade weekeneds? Next year? Idk.)

I also play Edward Macmillan now so he's always here for Charles.

I'd love to thread them! I kinda wanna wait until Spryly is properly sorted post-CYOA which i need to get around to. I feel like he'll be more entertaining if he's at least optimistic that he's getting back on his feet, no pun intended.

We should definitely thread them next September when she joins Slytherin! Only 10 and a half months to wait xD Or they could meet over Christmas or summer, but September might be better since we'll have a premise besides kiddy meet and greet.

Charles loathes Edward, I look forward to threading them at some point it should be fun hehe

Oooh yes sounds perf! If you start Charles/Calliope (at rando UC event #85275? or... wherever? xD) I can get something up for Spryly/Ishmael in London!

I'm desperate for threads with Benevolence Montague- my lovely little MCPB plant breeder. How would Ursula like a plant that has opioid effects that she can sniff in her own orangery? Other good and bad effects to be determined. I would imagine that Ursula would probably use a pureblood florist where she can, even if she's as dismissive as all heck with her because ew....middle class working woman - but also no threat.
Or anyone else that would any cause to cross paths with Benevolence.

Pet and Madeleine Backus might cross some paths these days, Maddie is attending some society events and is living with a Russian family in Hogsmeade, after spending a number of months in St. Petersburg. Some Russian conversations? Also Maddie could do with someone to talk to at events - ex-prefects for life.
I'd also throw Maddie in as a friend or acquaintance of anyone who would socialise with a Half blood with an inheritance coming.

Ginevra Blackwood and Antigone were in the same year - not the same house but both UC purebloods- Vera probably attempted to drag Tig to parties and gossip and would ignore pretty much all taciturn rejections of invitations. I would imagine they ran in similar social circles as kids/young adults and Vera is willful in her own way.

Ursula's actually sober at the moment and wouldn't request anything like that on account of her pride and also privacy. However, she may very well be a customer of the usual flower buying variety! Not sure that lends itself to any particularly thrilling interactions though. Off the top of my head I could maybe offer Theo for something although I'm not quite sure what, I'm just basing that off of close in age and same social class x3 Any thoughts?

I'm definitely up for threading these two, I quite like the idea of them sort of becoming better acquainted post-Hogwarts because the change in situation has thrown them together in such a way as to give them an opportunity to get to know each other properly despite having attended school together for years if you know what I mean? Assuming that they actually do bond! Pet's fairly easy going but if they don't seem to have much in common then she'll probably be a bit reserved as opposed to hitting it off straight away.

I thiiiink Ginevra was actually in the year above Tig not that that makes a big difference. However, I'm really not sure they're likely to have clicked like at all? I think they're a bit chalk and cheese so in that respect they could be entertaining in a thread together. Tig doesn't actually have an aversion to social events she's just lost interest in recent times but regardless she'd probably turn nasty and/or straight up violent if Ginevra tried to bully her into doing something she didn't want to do. Of course that's assuming they're on friendship terms which I'm really not convinced they would be, especially as Ginevra's profile says "She would rather spend her time with muggles borns of good character than purebloods who think too highly of themselves." and Tig is very much the latter and always has been. I'm happy to thread them but I just can't see Tig being on friendly terms with her at all unless I'm grievously misunderstanding Ginevra's character in which case please set me right :P
