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...

Of Shakespearean Proportions

Reply
I saw Othello last night an now I need more ongoing drama in my life. I offer the following characters for any non-lethal Shakespearean drama, including (but not limited to)...
  • Girl being "outed" as a hussy only to have it come to be revealed that she is not (Much Ado)
  • Jealousy within marriage egged on by an outside party with ulterior motives (Othello)
  • Secret marriage because family isn't into it (R&J)
  • Hostile takeover egged on by spouse (Macbeth), bonus points if seers are involved
  • Amortentia/Imperius nightmare of romantic entanglement (Midsummer Night)
  • Female poses as male valet for practical reasons, falls for employer AND a woman falls for "him" (Twelfth Night)
  • Ongoing gaslighting (Twelfth Night)
  • Two households, both alike in dignity, in fair Hogsmeade, where we lay our scene. From ancient grudge break to new mutiny, where civil blood makes civil hands unclean, BUT WITHOUT THE LOVE SUBPLOT (R&J)
  • Recognizing that a younger sister shouldn't be married before her elder and so a plot must be hatched because elder is too sassy for this (Taming of the Shrew)
  • Interracial (species?) elopement pissing off Daddy (Othello)
  • Having to grow up and face Adult Responsibilities in spite of your much older friend (who should know better) continuing to drag you out for drinks (I Henry IV)

Yeah. So. If any of these are of interest, I offer any of the characters to fulfill any role that it would be IC for them to do so.
Castor Allaway
Charles Jameshill
Cyrus Westerman
Desdemona Pettigrew
Elinor Goyle
Evelyn Abercrombie
Gervaise Ollivander
Hamish Darrow
Hannah Pettigrew
Lucius Lestrange (Anything involving powerplays, grudges, or disappointing children)
Maeve Connolly (Taming/Shrew?)
Odira Potter
Roslyn Ross
Rufina Mulciber
Virginia Carmichael

I'm not sure if I have characters that could fit a role in any of the plots you offered, but just know that I would be 120% stalking any of the ones you listed, especially the two households and female valet fuckery. If you have any specific ideas of how I can be involved, just lemme know because I'd offer my people in a heartbeat :P

I know I have a few connections from the characters you listed so they're available to be adjacent plot characters.

Fun fact, I adore the theatre. And drama.
  • Forbidden love you say? Secret marriage would be delightful if we can find to characters that could be a good match!
  • I can get Persephone involved if anyone needs a seer for hostile takeover drama.
  • Any of my single ladies would delightful for the amortentia/imperius plot (or married, if it works).
Ruins my character's lives for the fun of it.

I also don't know who I can offer or what to suggest but you know I'm into this. Will think on it.

A couple more options in the meantime just because:
  • Alternate crossdressing: Two girls run away together, one dresses as a man so they can pretend to be a couple for ~safety? (As You Like It)
  • Woman disguised as a man meets her beau/bf/crush, gets roped into giving him guy-to-guy courtship advice (As You Like It)
  • To piss off his/her family, [character] pretends to be mad. (Hamlet-lite)
  • (More a one-off event, but STILL) Someone gets stuck behind a curtain eavesdropping on some major secrets (Hamlet-lite)
    other one-off event: I would really love a fight to break out at a funeral

So... some vague ideas that you can maybe nudge into more concrete ideas?
  • That thing I skyped you about is STILL ON THE TABLE in whatever iteration ends up being reasonable.
  • I feel like the Jameshills have enough played presence and a colorful enough history that they'd make decent candidates for one of the "two households." If you find another bougie-MC family to play the others, I can sacrificially offer Lou for an inciting event to get the animosity started. Could be something that happened in the past, in the future, something that never happened but Family B thinks happened, whatever. I'm flex and always down for drama.
  • If Art is doing anything in the nearish future to make Dezzie doubt his fidelity (what did I hear in passing about a bender?) and Thom caught wind of it he would 1,000% encourage that notion and/or pave the path for her to leave him just because he dislikes Art that much sort of like the unreasonable obsession Iago has with ruining Othello's shit. If she was inclined to strike out on her own at some point but not financially able to do that he'd offer her some sort of management/exec level job at his company that seems glamorous enough to maybe make up for the lack of actual Quidditch playing in her future.
  • Connollys seem like a good choice for the Taming of the Shrew one but I don't and let's be honest probably never will understand their family tree well enough to make any actual suggestions. HOWEVER: I'll offer to have Ben knock up the younger sister to add a very distinct time crunch to this if you have a set of suitable sister somewhere in the tree and to give me shit to do with Ben.
  • Re:Amortentia Troubles, I could offer you J. Alfred Darrow Lupus Jameshill or Lyra Potter all of whom are their own different shades of inappropriate.
  • If Alfred decides he's going to be a Real Adult maybe re: things with Zelda Hamish could totally be his 'yo but drinks' relative, but that's less of a plot and more of just a thing that will probably happen anyway unless you have ideas about how to make it a plot in which case HMU.

And as always if you have any specific needs my folks could fill, let me know. I'm down for anything, generally speaking, those were just my vague ideas based on your list.

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 don't have any characters who I think will fit any of these. Unless you think Gilbert Whitechapel will fit in somewhere.

However! I'm planning on creating an adult female character in the near future, so, if you're really jonesin' for one of these dramas in particular, let me know, and I can create her with that in mind.

Also, I can't wait to read any of these.

R&J – Blacks and Lestranges would be amusing for the scale of it but probably too much played history to retcon. I can offer you Skeeters maybe? Barney could definitely have ignited a feud with some other well-off middle classes at some point and if it’s with the Fisks/Ross might add some Ministry drama?

Secret marriage <3 Hit me up about any of my singles.

Much Ado – I can offer assistance for proving innocence. Rufina being defended by Belle or, reluctantly, Elladora maybe? Or if it’s Elinor you know Morwenna will move heaven and earth for her.

On a Midsummer theme I would LOVE an Oberon and Titania themed plot in which a husband and wife/brother and sister/long term platonic bros have a dispute about something that escalates appallingly.

It worries me that Taming could be Marlena and Helga but that would only work if Gervaise’s fiancé was secretly Helga!

I'd also sacrifice Aldous if it was on this specific altar.

Whatever ideas you might have, know I am 100% down for a Marlena/Helga thing.

My lovely Viola (metamorthamagi lady valet) was written for the 12th night but the plot never got much traction if there was interest in someone to play a guy for her to fall for or a lady to crush on 'Boy-Viola'. Id bring her back.

and Benevolence Montague was created for a rival florist plot that never got off the ground as the other person left.
