    Lonely Plots

    Have you got a grand idea for a plot but need a role (or roles) filled in before it can really take off? Post below describing the sort of character you need, your intention for them, and, if possible, how many threads you might require!

    For example:
    Quote: Wanted for Jeremy Rohlwing: a potioneer he can pay to brew an (unsuccessful) Eyesight-Improving Potion for him. MC/LC AB, professional or amateur, does not have to be reputable. Estimated 1-3 threads. Contact MJ by Skype.
    You can be as vague or as detailed as you like! Requests will be soft deleted after two months and you’ll be contacted asking if you would like the coding to repost it.

    Requests for specific characters to be created must instead be posted in Adoptable Plottables. This thread is intended only to recruit existing characters into your schemes!

    Wanted for Natsuko
    Her Gaurdian - MALE UCAB - a friend of her late Aunts. Should be 45+
    He hates or at least disdains Natsuko - either for her race, class, or for her blood status (she is halfblood but appears as muggle born).

    She hates him right back - time for some head butting!

    For Temerita Reid
    Meri is very short.  Like very short... when I made her I was trying to compensate for my freakishly tall 6' 2" character.  But now I'd like to fix that.  She works at Ollivander's London and I'd love for a broken wand to backfire on her or perhaps a poorly matched wand lash out and make her giant.  Then she'll need to be shrunk back down but drawing inspiration from Hermione and her teeth, she's going to fib a bit about her natural height and come out 2 inches taller.  So maybe a Healer, Accidental Magic Reversal Person, or wand customer?  Ideally this would start in time for nano :D

    Wanted for Ezra Vablatsky:
    A centaur to mistake him for his brother, @Micajah Vablatsky, who published a book about centaurs after spying them for several months. Said centaur should not be pleased by this xD I can come up with an excuse for Ezra to be just about anywhere, so don’t let location stop you from volunteering!

    Wanted for Kentigern MacFusty:
    A governess for Tiger's four non-Hogwarts aged children (he has five in total). His previous one has decided to retire and so he will be holding interviews and such since he has to be sure the candidate can handle the job.

    Lower or Middle with Middle being preferred; must have experience though is willing to consider inexperienced ladies depending on how they do in the interview process. Must be capable of being strict without being cruel or otherwise overly distressing for the children.
    Tiger speaks with the typical Scottish accent of MacFustys

    Wanted for Bruteytootey:
    Brutus strongly resembles an UC male - your character? Your character's son/brother/husband? For some reason or another, a doppleganger is needed and Brutus is chosen for his uncanny resemblance. Unfortunately, Brutus is not only LC but a buffoon and liability. Embarrassment and failed plans are inevitable.

    Wanted for Ottilie Pine:
    A Hogsmeade Hospital healer for Tillie to be crushing on. She will make an absolute fool of herself in the healer's presence (clumsy, stumbling over words, etc). I'm going to go out on a limb and not even be picky about gender. For some reason Tillie strikes me as the kind who may like to swing both ways, I'm not super sure. Probably in for 3+ threads to see the chemistry and then we can go from there! Please PM me on @Elsie Beauregard with any ideas!

    Guinevere is gonna be kidnapped!! But who's responsible? That's a shout out that I'm asking.
    Motives
    • She's rich, could be for money.
    • She's supportive of her squib brother, person hired by rich blood purist to scare her.
    • Same reason, but it could be a blood purist themselves (probably of lower class, or at least a bad rep already).
    Rules
    • I don't want her to die. Saying that right now, she lives through this.
    • Please don't hurt her at least no more than cuts and bruising.

    I want this in Witch Weekly, fair warning. Your character does not have to be mentioned, and they could even not be caught if that's what you want for your character. Not sure how long I want her kidnapped for, we can discuss that, depends on both of their time-lines.

    Please PM me either on this account or Acacia Ruskin.

    Herbert Fudge is dead. He cannot hold a quill, but still intends to run his resort. To accommodate this, he’ll be hiring a scribe at pay level six, though the successful candidate will have the bonus of living in the family portion of the Sanditon Resort! Candidate should…

    • Be male
    • No longer be in school
    • Be respectable
    • Be literate
    • Be lower class
    • Be reliable, but possess a sense of adventure.
    Interested parties should send an owl tagged to Herbert with a letter of introduction! I’ll accept existing or new characters :)

    A Little Workplace Romance?
    Freddie here is a softie who gets crushes easily. I'd like for him to get a crush on a young female Ministry employee. She likely works as a secretary or, barring that, some other desk-based job. She's sweet and nice and someone that Freddie would actually interact with.

    Whether she'll return his feelings or not is up to the player.

    If you have someone who you think may work for this, please contact me so we can discuss their relationship etc!

    ALL MY [NEW] FRIENDS ARE HEATHENS
    A vast majority of Jack's established friendship group are inactive and even if they weren't, most of them wouldn't be able to hang out with him at the upper class things he gets invited to as a H-M boy. So, I want him to get some new, male friends among his own social circle as well as get up to the sort of things bored, rich boys get up to.

    They should be close to his own age - around 18-24. Personality is a bit a factor, as well. Jack has some lower class friends as well as female ones so obviously he won't want to hang around with dudes that are all 'women are stupid and should have no rights' or 'lower class people stink and we're better cause we're rich', etc. He's also very 'meh' to the idea of being buddies with outright assholes. Probably also won't be openly chummy with part-humans, more out of respect for his family reputation than personal opinion on them.

    Things they could get up to: The Sandition Regatta if they're around by then, drinking games, broom races, small quidditch scrimmages? Idk, whatever rich, young boys might get up to. Obviously, existing characters are definitely more than welcome.
    Most people who know him address him as Jack.
    As of August 1884, Jack has a scar on his left cheek.

    It wasn't uncommon for society women to act as a debutante's uh, 'mother' when the debutante didn't have a mother or an older sister to do that for her. Kath has too much time on her hands and I'd love for her to act as some debutante's "surrogate" mother. She was never an Olivia Pendergast level of socialite but she is a Lestrange so I imagine that'd make her a desirable connection.

    Any girl would have to be pureblood and probably upper class, though upper middle class might work depending on circumstances. I am not interested in a new character made for this, I'd just like for Kath to act as someone's Season Mom if the need arises. xD

    Wanted For Rena Restell:

    A GHOST
    Rena has no idea that ghosts are things. I think her reaction to encountering one would be to a) assuming she's having a vision, b) be very confused when said vision started interacting to her/speaking to her, and c) totally freak out. So it would be a fun thread ;) Only one thread required.
    A TUTOR
    Anyone who has been to Hogwarts is qualified to teach Rena because she knows nothing. No experience required and this could be developed IC (ie., they meet randomly and she asks a bunch of stupid questions and then eventually asks him/her to help her learn). They don't even need to have a particularly good reputation because her family knows nothing about the magical world so they'd be oblivious to everything except the most obvious of defects. Should be available for multiple light hearted threads, may or may not have plot development beyond that.
    A SCOUNDREL
    Rena is very naive and very trusting. She hasn't been exposed to much of the world and now that she's being introduced to magic her chaperones are a little less hands-on by necessity because they have no idea what's going on most of the time. I want her to meet someone that takes advantage of her trust, though how that happens is pretty flexible. Could be a one-thread thing or a more developed plot depending on what ideas you have.

    A LC person comes to the shop with irreparable damage to their wand. They can't afford a new wand either. Gif takes pity on them (probably because they need their wand for their job or some shit) and he offers to give them one of his ~experimental (aka the wands he's made using foreign techniques) wands for free or for a price affordable for them. He only asks them to keep him updated for a while as to how the wand is working. The wand is actually not awful - the goal is for Gif to feel more comfortable about branching out of what his family taught him as "The Best" method of wandmaking.
