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 ( Submit your own)

When your mum thinks you're gay for your best friend (but you probably are)
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.Aubrey Davis in The Under-Sofa

Every bit a mama’s girl, Flora puts on her best Grownup Behaviour™ to emulate her idol, and the two have been very close (by upper class standards) since she was a toddler. She is gentler in nature than Rufina, and though spoiled, is not at all a brat about it. The suggested PB is Malina Weissman with alternatives to be dark-haired.

Rufina’s husband of many years, Ernest and she have a decidedly tepid relationship—though their arranged marriage was never the height of passion. The two are cordial but not close, each engaged in their own spheres as much as possible. Prior to their marriage, he lost his brother and wife. I would prefer if he did not have any other siblings. Unbeknownst to Rufina—though likely suspected by Ernest—he was in fact the father of his now-ward, Rufus, though has never been any more affectionate to his children than the typical Victorian father of means. He is unaware of Rufina’s affair. It would be delightfully convenient if he were friends with Phineas Black, but that’s something to be worked out with Bee and obviously subject to personalities meshing! Plot-wise, Ernest is in for the fun work crippling that his old-board rendition already had, and the fun that goes with it ;) Pictured PB is David Tennant, with alternatives to be white, dark-haired, and age-appropriate.

Argus Scrimgeour
UCPB | b. 1824 | Slytherin Alumnus | Reputation 8
Gentleman of Leisure

The father (and frequent antagonist) of Bella Scrimgeour. He attended Hogwarts as a Slytherin and graduated with the required NEWTs to go into the auror training program. He served as an auror for over twenty years, but an incident involving a dark wizard torturing him with the cruciatus curse sent him into an early retirement. Since then, he's not been quite right in the mind, but hasn't done anything that would cause speculation in the public eye.

Traditional in his beliefs and extremely stubborn, he displayed great disappointment when seeing how Bella had been brought up in her childhood. Her inability—and often her reluctance—to conform to upper class standards let to many arguments that led the two to loathe each other. He "sent her away" to live with his wife's sister in 1887, though keeps an annoyingly close eye on her from afar.

Suggested PB: Liam Neeson. Alternatives should be age-appropriate and white.

Lucille Flint
UCPB | b. 1869 | Hufflepuff Alumna | Reputation 8
Ditzy Debutante

The cousin and close friend of Bella Scrimgeour. She attended Hogwarts as a Hufflepuff and graduated with at least some NEWTs. She and Bella were likely not friends while at Hogwarts (probably due to lack of time spent with each other rather than clashing personalities), but found themselves a good pair during the season. Her father died before she was old enough to remember him, but is often told by relatives that she physically resembles him far more than she does her own mother.

A girl with a bubbly, bright personality but prone to bringing undesirable attention to herself, was well-balanced with Bella, a girl with anxiety around unfamiliar crowds but well enough sense to not make a public spectacle of herself. The two girls consider each other dear friends, but are prone to bickering among themselves about trivial issues.

Strongly suggested PB: Freya Mavor, with others to be white and age-appropriate.

The Delaney Family
— For @Shawn Delaney

b. 1869 | MCHB | Debutante | Suggested PB: Meika Woollard
High Priority Character

The little and only sister of the Ship Captain and Merchant Shawn Delaney. The two hail from Boston and are some of those pesky Americans. As the only daughter with three older brothers, she’s quite strong and independent. She was never really babied and doesn’t want to be. She went to Ilvermorny and was a Thunderbird. Of all her brothers, she was closest to Shawn and his disappearance in 1883 bothered her the most. She was beyond ecstatic when he suddenly walked back into the family’s importing business in 1887. She’s the one to fill him in on most of what has happened in the four years he had been gone. It is Caroline that convinces Shawn to go back to Hogsmeade in search of his fiance and then begs to go with him since it was her idea. It takes some time, but he relents. It takes more time for their parents to agree, loathe to let their only daughter go to a land unknown and to let go of their son they just got back. It becomes a good opportunity for the family though, a chance for Shawn to start up business for Delaney Imports in Great Britain. Caroline is determined for it to be a grand adventure, however, and hopes to find herself a Brit for a husband.

Caroline will play an integral part in Shawn’s life when he finds out Immie has married another man and started a whole new life!

Philip's mother assumes that Philip is gay and what I want here is a friend for Philip that does not exactly help her assume otherwise. They can be of any age, any blood - their life is totally open, really so long as they would reasonably get along like fire with Philip and spend enough time hanging around him and his shop to make Mrs Aymslowe all ~narrow eyed suspicious. There'll be a wanted ad for her up in my adoptables very soon.

Philip is likely bisexual so if you're wanting an actual romance to blossom between them, we could explore that too but only if things naturally go there since Philip is blissfully ignorant of his own preferences. #veman

The Blood Bank

And on a completely different note than the above, this is a super open-ended plot! Basically sometime between 1878 and 1883, Kieran served as an occasional blood bank to a vampire for cash dollaz. #thehustle #poorlifechoices etc. Bonus points if this arrangement was at its most fervent in 1879 when Kieran was unemployed for a hot minute.

Anyways basically the arrangement ended before Kieran became a werewolf, but now the vampire is back/needs blood/whatever and is gonna hit up Kieran and be suspicious when he says no to (kind of) free money.

Becky’s only blood sibling, and the only member of her family with whom she truly has any contact, James is still at Hogwarts though knows he’ll have to conjure up some money if he wants to stay past his OWLs. He has a very strong sense of right and wrong, and likely at least investigated the ‘church of magical jesus’ to reconcile his Christian upbringing with the fact that he’s a wizard. Like Becky, James believes himself to be a muggleborn. Though he may have an interest in quidditch, he would not own his own broomstick. The suggested PB is Timothée Chalamet with alternatives to be brunette.

Araminta Scrimgeour

For @Bella Scrimgeour
b. 1868 | UCPB | Slytherin ('87) | Debutante

Araminta Scrimgeour is the identical twin sister of Bella Scrimgeour. Born on October 30, 1868, Araminta became the only daughter in the Scrimgeour household when Bella was kidnapped less than three months after their birth. She was raised to be the epitome of femininity, and is skilled in the arts. She began Hogwarts in 1880 and was sorted into Slytherin house, but not before coming face to face with her long-lost twin sister, who was being paraded as a WCMB.

Though thrown off by the gossip that came from the event, she had a strong desire to bond with the sister she'd never known. However, their personalities frequently conflicted, with Bella showing little desire to participate in activities Araminta found enjoyable. Araminta, though kind at the core, came across as haughty and judgmental when she scolded her sister for her mistakes.

Bella was sent to live with the girls' Aunt Laverna Flint a month after they debuted and chose to become a healer instead of a debutante, which led to a rocky relationship between the girls. Bella's constant presence in Witch Weekly and in society gossip further strained their relationship, as Araminta was frequently mistaken for her twin. With rumors now circulating about Bella hanging around the "unseemly types", Araminta has had enough and is determined to clear her sister's head and find her stability — whatever that means.

The required PB is Lera Sarbaeva for #twinsies. She's a fairly high-priority character, so I reserve the right to be picky about who takes her.

b. 1852 | UCMB | Open | Suggested PB: Tom Ellis
High Priority Character

Having fallen madly in love with Juniper from the moment they met (likely in part due to her veela charm), Andrew later married the redheaded veela. Though he came to learn  of her nonhuman state, he still swore his love to her due to lust and what he claimed was "love". His personality is open to whoever takes him, but it's clear that he spoils and dotes on his wife.

Recent Development: Juniper was recently grabbed by a man, and while trying to get him to stop, she had turned into her other form, resulting in rumors that she had started the incident (which said incident had left her going to Andrew, crying and already telling him  the real story before the false rumors even surfaced). Possible frustration over the incident (as well as Kelly really hoping that Andrew punches Albert for grabbing his wife, but that is 100% optional). Lots of drama, lots of fun.

“Mrs.” Sarah ____ nee Trelawney | Any House | 30 | Non-Purist
[Image: 2z8vsxy.jpg]
Born in 1857 Sarah was the first child born to Freya Trelawney and like pretty much all of Freya’s children she is illegitimate. At the time of Sarah’s birth Freya still lived with her parents so the first few years of her life were likely relatively comfortable and this continued through the birth of Freya’s next five children. In 1866 the family was disowned and things went from shit to worse from then on. Sarah attended Hogwarts and probably at least achieved OWLs but did not get NEWTs – her profession should reflect her level of education and she can live in Hogsmeade or Irvingly. If she is actually married is up to you but she is at least co-habiting with somebody and keeping up the pretence for some reason. Her rep should be no more than six and, like her mother and sister, she is prone to romanticising things and not always making the best decisions.

Her suggested PB is Sarah Gadon with alternatives to be age appropriate, idgaf about hair colour.

The Husband
— For @Phoebe Yaxley  —

b. 1858 | UCPB | Gentleman of Leisure | Suggested PB: Adrien Sahores

I see things going one of two ways with Gregory. As such, you will have to speak with me first so we're on the same page for him! But there are some things that are pretty set. He was born in 1858 as the second child but first son. He was betrothed to Phoebe the same year she was born in 1867. He met her for the first time in 1872 in which Phoebe showed her first signs of magic by setting his pants on fire! She's never been fond of him and views him as worthless and boring. She's consistently been having affairs since they were married in 1885. During the months she has a consistent lover, she makes a point to share his bed at least once.

Way A: Gregory is as worthless and weak as Phoebe thinks he is. He can be very timid and is a bit of a failure when it comes to being a first son. He's too nice and understanding to try and make everyone happy at all times. He's a bit of a doormat to his wife and while he's probably aware of her affairs, he doesn't actually do anything about it. If he's played this way, it's like he'd be a temporary character and could be killed off in the future.

Way B: Gregory is actually just biding his time and putting on the act of being worthless. How this works, I'm not entirely sure but he proves to be much more of a man than Phoebe ever anticipated and is simply awaiting the right time to prove such to her. Perhaps he figures out she's doing anything possible to not get pregnant and finally demands things change or else. Or.. perhaps he finds out she's set her eyes on his little brother and is not okay with that. The possibilities are endless and I'm still okay with him being temporary as we can plot an arranged murder if we want.

Felicity Adlard
The youngest of the Adlard children Felicity, or Lissy as her brother and sister call her, is a MCHB. She graduated from Hogwarts in 1884, the house can be determined by you. Felicity is her father’s favorite child and while she has been engaged since 1886 she has pushed the wedding off and lived at home for their father’s sake as he is often convinced he is on his deathbed. Felicity is mentioned as the culprit for dragging her brother out of his abode to be social, often convincing him to be her chaperon to various events and subtly trying to set her brother up with some young woman or other. She is described in Percy’s posts as being vibrant, social, charming, outgoing, kind, sweet, and constantly seeking social engagements.

A Collection of Coopers
Working Class Halfbloods
@'Veronica Grantham' (née Cooper) & @'Leander Grantham'

The Coopers are a bit of a Clusterfuck. (Vic's app has the whole shebang.) Maybelle Cooper has had a serial string of loves/men in her life. Some last and some don't but she is incapable of being alone. The resulting children from those relationships are mostly half-siblings though some do share a father. This set a horrible example for the Cooper children and many of them made poor choices in life. None of them got to attend Hogwarts for more than a year, so they have mostly had to fend for themselves and stick together over the years.

--- "Betsy" Cooper
1862 | house | single | 8 rep
"Skilled" Occupation
Britt(any) Robertson

Her first name can be anything that could lead to the nickname Betsy, or she could have just been named that, it's up to you! Betsy moved to Pennyworth with Vic an Le in the middle of June 1886 after the Pennyworth to get out of her mother's house. They live in a small three bedroom house in Pennyworth, thanks to the addition of Betsy's income so she must have a job that's pay level 5/6 meaning she has to have some kind of skilled trade job; seamstress, baker, etc. She did not attend Hogwarts and in 1872 she and her brother Trenton ran away for a short stint before realizing that did not work out well. Since then she's buckled down and learned to be more responsible. Her relationship with her siblings is largely open, but she obviously gets on well enough with Vic to come live with her.

The middle of the Collins girls, she had a successful first season before signing herself up for a hospital internship. It was there that she became properly acquainted with Mr. Porter.

Friend McGoodguy is a friend from Nathalie's school days. He is likely older than she is and so the "single by 30" is really more for her than for him (could be single by 35 for him), but they were friends in school so likely not too far apart. He may have been her tutor for something or may have been friends with her brother etc. He probably knows about her unfortunate love life ("dead" fiance and runaway fiance) They've recently reconnected somehow (work at the hospital, at a function of some sort) and Nathalie genuinely likes him, but as a friend. How he feels about her is open and the "Single By 30" pact will be be something that ends up IC after we establish chemistry!

The first and only true love of Nathalie's life. Devereaux is a muggleborn wizard who was pursuing becoming a physician at the time he met Nathalie between her 6th and 7th years. The pair kept in touch by letter throughout her final year of school and shortly after her, debut asked her parents for permission to court her. Nathalie was truly smitten with him and he returned her affections. He prepared to ask for her hand in marriage but unfortunately went "missing on a return trip from America when his ship is caught in a storm." At least this is what Nathalie is told. Did he wash up somewhere with amnesia? Did his parents have something to do with it because he was considering marrying a witch? Was he stranded in America and prevented from returning for some reason? Idk it's up to you, but the only thing he had from Nathalie was her letters from her seventh year and during his trip.

He's recently (when picked up) returned to England to find her and we can go from there! Ideally he messes up the "Single by 30" plot above! >D -- Reserved for Beanie!

In his thirties, Errington is either married, courting, or single and eligible (#hurlable), and holds some kind of MC-appropriate job for a man. His Hogwarts house is open. Actually, everything about him is open; he only exists because I think someone should use Richard Ayoade's face, goddamnit.



While Carmelina was always on the well-behaved side, Jossima was the out-and-out rebel from an early age, though most of the family have probably just learned to roll with her by now. By the time she started school, she was already set on playing quidditch for the Holyhead Harpies, a dream career that has come before anything like husband-hunting, that's for sure. Everything else about her is super open.



Don Juan's personality is exactly what one would expect of a famed literary libertine, and never mind that the poem is ironic re: the name. Lord Byron is his actual hero. Accordingly, he is a constant source of migraines for their mother. Also he and Phyri's PBs literally played literary siblings one time.

Elijah Urquart is not a kindhearted lad, but for his little brother, he makes an exception, displaying instead as warm and protective.

He was once expected to stay home with Niamh’s baby while the rest of the family did something because #youth and took great offence to being equated with a toddler.

"Paul" (name open) is a ACAB wizard, and the other survivor of the Sycorax expedition. Although not initially close or even particularly friendly, Alfred and Paul became besties during their forced exile from 1882 - 1887. Speaking generally, Paul has adjusted much better to life back in Britain than Alfred has. Depending on your wont, he can either have been in the Navy like Alfred or can have been a part of the expedition's scientific/academic detachment, in which case he should have some sort of relevant academic specialty. He was previously played as a cousin of @Herbert Fudge, which is convenient since they stayed at the Sandition briefly upon their return to England, but if you want to combine him with another ad I can retcon that.

PB is all kinds of open. POC encouraged. Pictured is Jesus Luz.
