Did you know?

Fern-hunting parties became popular, allowing young women to get outside in a seemingly innocuous pursuit with less rigid oversight and chaperoning than they saw in parlors and drawing rooms. They may have even had the occasional romantic meetup with a similarly fern-impassioned beau. — Bree

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...

Elaine's Networking

Here are my nerds. Meet them. Organized neatly for your convenience (well, as best I can, given how terribad I am at coding), using a weird combination of Bree and Lynn template codes and my own terrible ideas. This is a constant work in progress. Please don't hate me for the amount of lack.

Here is my Thirty Song Challenge

Ambrosia Shinnick

21 | UCHB | Ravenclaw Class of '85 | REP 9

  • Friends: Yearmates and housemates, preferably female, though I could see her having some friendly/academic coorespondence with a male peer (she wasn't a Ravenclaw for nothing).
  • Rivals: Schoolmates she may not have gotten along with, mostly, as well as debutante rivalries that may exist.
  • Hurls: UCAB males, ideally between 27 and 35, must have a rep of at least 7.

  • Dahlia McRae

    25 | UCMB | Hufflepuff Class of '82 | REP 9
    Wife of Iain McRae, Socialite

  • Friends: UCMB and HB ladies with whom Dahlia socializes on a regular basis. Not the inner circle, but peripheral and trusted enough that she's not nervous in their presence.
  • Tea Group: A circle of 4-5 ladies from the Friends category who are especially trusted. The people with whom Dahlia is open and enthusiastic, for whom she will keep any secret.
  • Enemies: UCPB ladies who think that this upstart muggleborn doesn't belong. The only people she really fears in wizarding society.

  • Killian Tabiner

    45 | UCPB | Ravenclaw Class of '61 | REP 7
    Head of Spirit Division; Spare Time Playwright

  • Friends: Let's be honest; there won't be too many of these. Killian's a moody bastard. Still, he's got to have something of a social circle. Could be pre-plotted or new!
  • Rivals: As I said - Killian's a moody bastard. The Rivals category should be far more filled than the Friends group.
  • Coworkers: Ministry peers such as other heads of divisions in the Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures, as well as members of other departments.
  • Employees: Killian has a small house staff, some of whom think he might be sleeping with his sister. Additionally, he's the head of a division in the Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures. The Occupations list has 7 spots in there....

  • Naeva Lécuyer

    18 | UCPB | Slytherin Class of '88 | REP 10
    Seventh Year Student

  • Friends: Other UCPB female students of sixth and seventh year, as well as those who graduated last year that fit the afforementioned requirements and were in Slytherin. Additionally, fellow NEWT-level students in Astronomy, DADA, Divination, Potions, and Transfiguration can apply.
  • Rivals: Naeva is an upper class pureblood Slytherin with purist leanings. Give me the dramaz.
  • Important! Naeva is to be enrolled at the Pendergast School for Young Roses, which her elder sisters currently attend, post-graduation.

  • Lydia Harleston

    63 | MCPB | Gryffindor Class of '42 | REP 9
    Creature-Induced Injuries Healer, Hogsmeade Hospital

  • Friends: Fellow old people, preferably MC - just give this stubborn woman friends.
  • Coworkers: Lydia works at Hogsmeade Hospital in the Creature-Induced Injuries ward. She could act as a sort of motherly figure, shoulder-to-cry-on for her younger female coworkers of any class, should they need it, as well as a guiding hand - she is quite experienced in the field!
  • Neighbors: Mrs. Harleston does not live alone; she lives with her eldest son and his family in Bartonburg (they have a section of my wanteds). She personally tends to the small garden in her spare time - it's her one remaining hobby.

  • Mozelle Rios

    15 | MCHB | Hufflepuff Class of '90 | REP 9
    Fifth Year Hufflepuff

  • Friends: Classmates, male and female, of varying class and blood purity. Mozelle, quite honestly, doesn't care about society when she's at school. She just cares about people.
  • Rivals: Mozelle is kind, open-minded, and foreign-blooded. She is Spanish and Italian by blood, born in Barcelona, and speaks Spanish and Italian as secondary native tongues.
  • Hurls: Mozelle is still a student. Student!hurling is a thing. I would like to entertain the notion of having a Hogwarts flame - any house, any class, any blood, of sixth or seventh year. Obviously, nothing would really come of this besides dramaz. But we like the dramaz.

  • Her aunts and uncles (both those related by blood and those married to her blood relatives), especially Uncle Deiphobus, the fellow unfortunate enough to have become guardian to Ambrosia and Nectar.
  • A penpal. Badly. Someone she can talk with about intellectual pursuits without them thinking she sounds preachy.


  • Her husband, Iain. There's an ad coming up, but considering that she's expecting, within a few months she'll be confined to letter threads unless someone takes the husband. Speaking of...
  • Staff. Considering that, at present, it's a household of 2 with a third on the way, they have a relatively small staff, but enough to keep the house in order. Ideally no house-elves, as Dahlia is used to a human staff.


  • His sister, Georgette. Really, she completes the plot. For reference regarding her personality (and namesake), click here and here because inspiration.
  • His valet. The only other person Killian trusts with anything, really. He's a friend of Killian's father's valet, but is ten years younger than this unseen stranger.
  • His father. I've never really developed any headcanons regarding the man, but he isn't nice. Where do you think Killian got it from? ;)


  • Family!!! This woman has four children, two brothers, two sisters-in-law, and grandkids in numbers I've yet to determine. She's very matronly, very kind, and works at Hogsmeade Hospital.
