    To Soph, From Kayte

    Sophia, my love, my angel! I have no graphical talent and minimal creative talent, so I hope these coupons will suffice in lieu of the masterpiece you deserve. Threw in some mail for Ellory for good measure ;)  

    Merry Christmas <333

    To Hawke, from Miri

    Dear Hawke,
    Merry Christmas! I know we’ve never interacted much or plotted very often, but I want you to know that I’ve always thought that you were a great person and a talented writer, and it’s been wonderful to know you all these years! <3

    My experience with graphics is fairly limited, but I hope that you’ll still enjoy this aesthetic board I made for Emmeline! I was just going off prior knowledge and posts I’ve read when I made it, but I would totally be willing to remake you a new one if you’re not satisfied! :)

    Additionally, I offer the gift of creating one of your wanteds in the new year! I’m not in a position to make new characters anytime soon, but definitely get at me on the new board. ;-)

    I hope you have a lovely holiday, and an equally fabulous New Year!

    To Nolan, From Fallin

    Happy Holidays Nolan!

    Here is a short story to do as you will. Short story, new thread, ideas for a plot? Feel free to use as you'd like!


    The group of second year girls behind Sisse were anything but quiet in their studying. In fact their ‘hushed’ conversation was rather distracting to the first year who sat at a table behind their perch on one of the plush red couches. The first year was trying, trying, to focus on her magical theory text having put off the homework until much too late. Perhaps if the subject were a little less dull she wouldn’t have, but alas break was quickly approaching and she had yet to start the latest chapter in their next. This current predicament was only worsened by the fact that the girls behind her were actually working on their school work. Instead they were talking about a certain young Slytherin Chaser and giggling.

    “He’s so cute!” Clarissa admitted with a giggle. Sisse’s nose wrinkled, she’d never heard a boy described as cute - perhaps a baby one, but not one her brother’s age. What was cute about that?

    “You only think that because he’s the former minister’s son!” The red head with curls, Sisse never could remember her name, interjected.

    “No, you know it’s because he’s a chaser on the house team.” A third girl, Claire, teased from her seat on an armchair beside them.

    “Well I agree with Heather.” The fourth, (Sisse felt sure her name was Miss Bellam) added, “He is cute, no matter whose son he is or what team he’s on!”

    Claire snickered, “Sure. He’s also trouble.” She tossed her black hair over her shoulder as she gave the other two a sharp stare. “Remember how much mischief he got into last year!”

    “I don’t remember you minding when it got us out of History.” The redhead pointed out, her friend rolling her eyes at the comment.

    “Nevermind last year, did you see him smile at me today in Charms?” Clarissa pulled the conversation back to herself.

    Sisse internally sighed, it wasn’t that she was interested in their conversation that she was listening, it was simply because they weren’t exactly being quiet about the matter.

    Ever since the last quidditch match it had been Sebastian Urquart this, Sebastian Urquart that. Even though Slytherin had beat Gryffindor they still admired the second year chaser. Sisse supposed it had rather more to do with the election and news of his father stepping down that had thrust him in the spotlight than the actual game, but it seemed to matter little to the second years as they chattered on endlessly about him in the days that followed.

    “Yes Miss Thompsett? Did you have something to add?” The red head and turned to give Sisse a pointed look and the first year could feel her cheeks growing warm. No. She had absolutely nothing to say in this conversation.

    No.” She murmured quietly as the red head raised her eyebrows and the other three laughed.

    “Oh come on, surely you must agree with Heather and I.” Clarissa coaxed Sisse. Sisse just wanted to bolt. Where were the rest of the first years? Surely someone could interrupt this.

    She shrugged and the girls laughed. “Of course not, you’re too young to think of such things.” Clarissa added before they returned to their conversation, Sisse having been put in her place. Her cheeks burned red as her eyes remained glued to the page before her and the tittering of the girls behind her continued. She hated being considered so young, they were only a year a head of her, but she supposed they were right. She didn’t really know why a boy would be considered cute and it was impolite to eavesdrop even in the girls were being so loud.

    Behind her they had resumed their talking. Continuing on about Sebastian Urquart this and that. Sisse really did try to focus on her work in front of her, keeping her eyes glued to the page before her even when the second years voices quieted and a flurry of hushed whispers took its place. It wasn’t her fault that she heard the words, Christmas, maybe[/b], [i]should we?. It was her fault that she did not simply pack up her books and head to her dormroom.

    “Miss Thompsett?” This time it was Clarissa who had returned the conversation. Sisse looked up to see the four girls gazes’ settled on her.

    Yes?” Sisse directed her attention at Clarissa apprehensively, it was like when Matthew suddenly decided he wanted something from her.

    “Since you really have nothing to make you nervous, could you deliver our Christmas cards to Mr. Urquart?” Clarissa asked sweetly, holding out a stack of homemade Christmas cards for Sisse. Sisse’s cheeks felt warm.

    “I mean, after all you’re too young to be nervous around him.” The redhead put in, not entirely friendly.

    But she wasn’t acquainted with the second year chaser that alone seemed impolite to deliver cards of girls who clearly did seem to think a boy could be cute.

    “Samantha!” Heather hissed, clearly sensing Sisse’s hesitations. She turned to the second year, “Please? We’d be too worried to give them to him.”

    “He’s just another boy, just like your brother.” Clarissa put in, their eyes imploring Sisse. Sisse wanted to ask if he was just like her brother then why didn’t the girls just give him their cards, but it would be impolite to do so. Besides, he was just another boy, surely there was nothing to worry about.

    Sisse nodded in agreement and the girls squealed. “Oh thank you!” “Thank you!” They gushed putting their cards in Sisse’s hands before she could rethink their plan.


    And so it was that the evening before they returned home for break Sisse sought out the second year Slytherin chaser. Sisse hadn’t wanted to give him the cards before class and then have Sebastian notice her or the other girls during classes that day and she hadn’t wanted to wait until breakfast the next morning in case she missed him. It would be terribly rude to agree to do something and then to neglect to do so.

    She sat in a group of Gryffindor first years, laughing at a joke Sloane had made when she spotted Sebastian standing up from the Slytherin table. It was time to go. Sisse grabbed her school bag, the cards tucked safely inside, and stood up with a smile at Maddy who looked at her questioningly. “I’ll be right back.” She assured her friends and then made her way down the length of the table, hoping she was moving at a respectable and graceful pace. It wouldn’t do good to appear as eager as the second years would have.

    Mr. Urquart? Excuse me.” Sisse caught up to Sebastian as he left the Great Hall. He turned to her and she smiled - after all she loved to meet new people and she was a Gryffindor. She wasn’t afraid of doing something nice for people she knew, right? Fighting down the nerves she held out the bundle of Christmas cards for him to take. She had tied the bundle with a red ribbon and had even made him a card - after all she had felt it would be wrong to deliver him Christmas cards and neglect to include one of her own. “Some of the girls wanted me to deliver these to you.” She admitted truthfully. “Merry Christmas!” She piped cheerfully as he took the cards, turning on her heel and starting to head back into the hall to her own friends.

    August is currently recovering from amnesia. For the past year and seven months he's been living under the name "Peter" as a LC muggle. He is very slowly remembering bits and pieces of his old life, and thusly will probably not recall your character at all as of right now.
