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.

To all the girls I've loved before...

Finlay Connolly is a hopeless romantic who fancies himself in love with a new girl almost every other week. He just loves love and romance and has a lot of feelings, but is horribly awkward and likely never actually makes his feelings known to the girls.

The Plot
If you haven't seen the Netflix movie To All the Boys I've Loved Before and plan to watch it, stop reading now or you'll get spoilers. I watched it and I loved it so much that I want to do a plot like that.

Finlay has a storage box of love letters he wrote to all of his crushes over the years - all the way from the first one when he was just nine years up until now. Someone discovers these letters (Finnian Byrne or Maeve Connolly?) and sends them all out!

He doesn't realize it until these girls are contacting him or showing up at work to either reject him or react.

I want to include as many ladies as possible, married or not whom he could have been in contact with at some point in his life. She just needs to be female and have an admirable quality - just one. ACAB. He doesn't have a type. xD

Fin's quick history:
Birthdate: December 2nd, 1861
Age: 27
Occupation: Magical Bugs Healer, Hogsmeade Hospital started in 1880
Blood Status: Halfblood
Residence: County Galway, Ireland (Has lived there his whole life outside of Hogwarts)
Hogwarts House: Gryffindor, years 1873 - 1880
Hobbies: Budding herbologist so frequents shops regarding that and hosts a once monthly club meeting in Padmore Park, though that stopped during Fogsmeade

How it'll go down
Comment here or PM me if your girl fits any of the above categories and you want to participate in this plot. I'll send the letter on Finlay's account and we can go from there. She could write him back or we could have a thread. Or she could ignore it and her husband/beau finds it... or child... what have you! Please don't respond unless you'd like to have at least 1-3 threads about it.

I have the lovely Henrietta Davis who probably would never have noticed a crush, but might find it interesting that someone would have one on her.

I also have Nectar Shinnick who he could have met around Hogsmeade. She has this spark to her, and is fun loving. She might actually entertain the idea of a romance, so that could turn out cute or awkward.

wanted to give you multiple options

HELLO, IT IS I.

Finnian would 100% send them out, it's maybe the most Finny-ish thing ever.

LADIES. I have few of them:
    Bella Scrimgeour started school in 1880, but I also HC'd that she'd have been a part of the Herbology Club!
    Dionisia Tweedy is a mediwitch at Hogsmeade Hospital.
    Dolores Diggory is a married woman who graduated as a Gyffindor in 1884.
lmao yep, those are my options.

Ugh I love that movie. <3

I have Immie here! She was two years above him in school (1871-'76 dropout), but in the same house! Immie, herself, is a budding Herbologist, and I think I remember establishing that she attends the monthly meetings, as well. So there's a few ways to go about this!

Loved that movie! I have Nimiane Bellchant she is about the same age, did not attend Hogwarts, but her brother did, so that may be one way he'd have been in contact. Until this year she was out socially. She is around irvingly mainly but that's in the last two years. He have may have fun into her when her mother was sick with the plague or around Hogsmeade.

I also have Lucille Flint if you would like but shes 19.

Veronica Gallivan was two years ahead of him
Iris Cattermole isn't finished yet but they were in the same year if my math is correct and also works as a healer but in St. Mungo's
Anais Beaumont is younger but she's my only adult herb nerd. They could have met while shopping or something.

Abi is 21, but she would love a crush/fling/thing. She was a Gryffindor as well, but now spends her time as a debutante. She lives in Irvingly with her mother.

Ugh I want to offer people but my options are all kinda hopeless. If you think one works, have at it? >.>

Sarah Townsend is an actual lovely human being and might have bumped into him around Hogsmeade or been a patient at some point? She's been married for years, but maybe he was unaware of that? Porphyria Dempsey is around his age but is bffs with Nat and would be likely to stab him regardless. If you can find one admirable quality about Calliope Riley, go for it. And now I also have Leila Scott who is a) a werewolf b) hasn't been around for the last few years and c) is also very unfriendly.

/here I was like "oh man I have never had so many female characters", and welp

Oh I guess I also have this gal. He'd likely have seen her around the hospital before if nowhere else!



If I could marry Bee I would but I can't so I ship our characters instead.

I think Henrietta is more his speed, but I'm not sure how they could have met. Any suggestions?

Dionisia would be fun! That could be a recent one too.

Fin had a ton of crushes in school, so I think this would fit well! They would have had OWL herbology together and he could have fancied her before that. He'd likely write his letter after he learned she dropped out when he came back for his 4th year.

I vote Elinor! They would have gone to school together for most of it, so a school boy crush would be ace.

I like Lucille's personality! <3 Would she have been at the hospital for anything before? (His patient would be amazing but might be a stretch.)

Sarah plz! We could have had her as a patient for a magical bug, perhaps? I like the idea of him knowing she was married, which was why he never sent the letter.

Haha I'll trade Elinor for Odira. She was in the hospital for a stint wasn't she? Or has she been there to visit Bax?

For Lucille Flint

Perhaps in the last year she got sick with a bug while meeting with her friend in Hogsmeade and ended up at the hospital for a night? I could make that work if needed.

As for Ms. Langley, she's been spending a lot of time at the zoo trying to snoop on her brother and his lady friend. She could have easily caught something/been scratched, etc. I would love to have her sick anyways!!

Do you think she could have been sick a bit ago? I'm looking to send these letters out during the next few days so them meeting would be assumed already. :)
