    Rosa's Latest Attempt at Networking
    #1
    HI PALS

    Hi! Welcome to my latest networking! If you like the sound of anybody here then give us a shout because all my people need people! You can either reply here or PM Gertrude Baker. Tho I would prefer a reply!

    I hope you like what you see ;)

    ALSO: I am doing this specifically for threads because I need threads. If you just want connections that's fine though (just let me know tho haha). I will also accept threads pre-existing friendships/connections because I am up for all the threads.

    ELIZABETH HUMPHREY-MAVIS
    23 | GRYFF '82 | UCHB | BUBBLY DEBUTANTE

    Betsy needs friends! She's meant to be the life of the party, and she has like one friend. I am open to any and all UC girls to be in Betsy's circle of friends. No hurls tho because I am high-key bored of hurling Betsy.

    JANE FLACK
    17 | GRYFF '88 | UCHB | SEVENTH YEAR

    Jane also needs friends! (you will sense a theme here, everybody needs friends). Jane is a loud, attention seeking, girl's girl who I imagine is that girl who mildly sexually harasses her friends because she needs them to know how hot they are. Friends to be girls around her age.

    I'm semi up for hurls but Jane already has a crush Jarret 5eva <3. So yes.

    NEPHELE LESTRANGE
    29 | RAVIE '76 | UCPB | PUREBLOOD SOCIALITE

    Nephele is a UCPB lady who needs fellow UCPB lady friends. I feel her circle is small (because she isn't the most social), of any ages. Her friends will probs be anyone who won't be a dick to her.

    NIGEL YAXLEY
    18 | SLYTH '87 | UCPB | GRUMPY MINISTRY WORKER

    I imagine all of Nigel's friends are like UCPB boys around his age. Nigel likes the banter and is an eighteen year old lad, basically. I'm open to friend-hurling for people who are snarky, banter-y, and/or are dry af, because they're IC not the people Nigel usually goes for.

    Romance-wise I'm fairly open when it comes to Nigel. Like he cannot be hurled because he is in no position to get married, but he's cute and adorable and is actually such a gent when it comes to women that I kind of want him to have something but idk. I'd only really be up for something if it developed through threads.

    KATIA MEADOWES
    33 | RAVIE '73 | MCHB | POETRY OBSESSED MAMA

    Like everybody else, Katia needs friends! She loves poetry and literature, so if you like that, Katia likes you. She is also a perma-exhausted mother (because despite having a nanny, she has eight children so they destroy her soul), who probably wants to have mummy-whinging sessions with other perma-exhausted mothers.

    I AM ALSO THE MOST UP FOR FISK THREADS. Katia has opinions on all of their lives, she judges them all, and will tell them how to live their lives and generally be totally inappropriate. U kno u want it.

    PENELOPE SYKES
    26 | PUFF '79 | MCHB | SWEET SECRETARY SLASH ACTUALLY ASSISTANT

    So I've always imagined that Penny is friendly with all the secretaries in the ministry (having started working there in 1877). She's super sweet, and she really cares about people, and is just the most adorable give her friends plz <3.

    I'm also really up for her to hang out with ministerial candidates because she will be their assistant! Unless they want to sack her for a dude when they become minister because I am not opposed to that. And I feel she's currently trying to see what the craic is.

    GERTRUDE BAKER
    20 | RAVIE '85 | LCMB | POLITICAL BIATCH

    I AM UP FOR ALL THE GERTRUDE THINGS SHE LITERALLY HAS NOTHING AND SHE WILL FOREVER BE MY LOVE. She likes all the political stuff, also I would really love her to have LC female friends who she can be just like a normal twenty year old lass with because she's so serious and she needs people to drag her fun side out!

    Jane and @Terpsichore Van Helsing could have been friends and see each other on breaks now as she was a seventh year Gryffindor last year! If Jane doesn't mind the family rep Cora has! Jane would also be in the same year as @Iziza Noel who was in ravenclaw but she was kicked out with the halfbreed ban.

    Nigel and Cora would have likely known each other as well!

    thanks bree!!

    There are only 2 years between Betsy and Gwen, and as magical nobles they probably knew each other growing up, at school etc. So they could be buds. Gwen sort of ships Betsy and her brother because then Betsy would get to be a countess too! and also she would gaurantee that her brother wont marry an idiot.
    I also have Estella- pop teaches at Hogwarts, she's a bit ditzy but a genuinely nice person.
    Natsuko - debutant - but she and Eva hate each other so prolly not!


    Maddie and Jane could be friends if she would socialise with someone LC - Maddie is a sweet pea and will have some interesting plot points this year

    ----
    For Nepehele
    I only have Circe Podmore - she is a pureblood but married a half blood -not sure how your girlie would feel about that!

    ---
    Penelope
    I have Benevolence who is a florist but also does flower deliveries to the ministry and I would imagine would know all the secretaries because they would be the ones either signing for the flowers or ordering them on behalf of their bosses. She is a sweetie as well, has been orphaned for a few years and is running her own business like a boss!

    I also have Antonia obviously, who is running for minister and would probably like her, and Ichabod - who will hate her would probably fire her.

    ----
    Maddie would be another friend option here but she's still in school, but would probably know each other from 'around' she did intern at the ministry once in DMLE and then the wizengemot and is considering lawyer as her profession in the long term.

    Antonia also runs the magical franchisment league, for the fair and equitable treatment of all magical beings, so pushing for womens votes, acknowledgements of half breeds etc, so if she's political they might know each other.
    Ginevra has just been the first woman to fly around the world solo - you may be aware of this

    I gotchu, Rosa
    For Gertrude, I have @Dionisia Tweedy! She was a year younger and a Hufflepuff, and also a LCMB. She's a feminist and into political activism so I think they'd get along? Now that I think about it we've threaded them in group threads together and I think we've discussed something before?

    I have @Frida Lestrange for all your family Nephele needs.

    @Demelza McGonagall

    I can see Jane being friends with both Cora and Iziza! I feel like her and Iziza bonded over both being incredibly short xD

    @Aeror

    Betsy - Yeah defo friends with Gwen! We can thread them hanging out at R&T if you want? Definitely not Natsuko because if Eva doesn't like her then Betsy will just be like, /who the fuck are you? Not sure about Estella, I feel they'd know each other maybe but idk.

    Jane - Yeah I can imagine her and Maddie being friends!

    Nephele - Yeah Nephele is a Lestrange so isn't cool with the marrying of halfbloods haha

    Penny - Yes I can definitely imagine her and Benevolence being friends! Penny would LOVE the fact she's a businesswoman! I'd love a thread between them, and one between Penny and Antonia as well seeing as she's been announced!

    Gertrude - I feel like Gertrude and Antonia probably wouldn't know each other yet, but I feel like Gertrude for sure would go to one of her campaign events where they could meet!
