    The Grandma Whitledge

    [Image: IKYDRN.jpg]
    60s — UCHB — Socialite — Jessica Lange
    Georgia Whitledge (née ------) is the paternal grandmother of the entire Whitledge brood. Born in 1819, Georgia lived a privileged life as the only child born to her parents. She attended Hogwarts and was sorted into any house. She's always been rather uptight and stern, though there's no denying she has an undying love for her family. Afraid that she would lose her inheritance by marrying, Georgia declared that she would remain unmarried; however, things changed when she met her husband. The duo married for love and had three children: Louis, Winston, and Patrick Whitledge.

    When her eldest son and heir, Louis, married young Heartwarming "Hattie" ------, she was horrified. The woman was completely mental — and not to mention her embarrassing name! Things only got worse when her other sons' wives found a friend in her new daughter in law. She was terribly distraught when all of her grandchildren, including ones not born to Heartwarming, were cursed with unfortunate names. While she would continue to judge her sons' life choices up until today, the silly names did not prevent her from showering her many grandchildren with affection.

    ARTEMISIA'S PILL JUNKIE ROOMMATE

    [Image: giphy.gif]

    Artemisia here will be going to Pendergast School for Young Roses in the coming September, seeing that she's in mourning and depressed and can't really enjoy her "free" year as a debutante.

    Artemisia has already shown signs of dependability on Calming Draughts and Cheering Potions IC. I'd love for her to be paired with a roomie at PSYR who will worsen that bad habit of hers.

    I'll temporarily name this girl Nicky because she reminds me of Nichols from Orange Is The New Black. She's either the only child, or the waaaay younger child of two distant upper class parents. She's a passionate young woman who grew up feeling unloved. She has an addictive personality; she gets unhealthy attachments to people, mostly due to her feeling neglected growing up. She's also been using drugs to deal with her issues. She is careful about that bad habbit of hers and period appropriate about it. An UC Victorian girl can't just be a huge heroin addict as if it's 2017, after all. xD I imagine that she mostly uses "powders" at parties and ~Calming Draughts~ or whatever regularly.

    Nicky left Hogwarts due to poor grades, rather than scandal. She spent a year as a debutante, but with little success. Her parents began to notice her lapse in behaviour, so decide that it might do her some good to spend some time at finishing school. Besides, she's still young, so whatever. There, she'll be roomies with Artemisia and corrupt her!

    The suggested PB is Lucy Fry because I recently watched a movie about college kids doing cocaine and she was in it. xD You're free to use whoever for her, though! You're also encouraged to combine this ad with other ads! I'd prefer if she was at least 18 seeing that this could deal with serious themes.

    Cornelius Andrew Sherington III // 30 // UC // HB // Suggested Playby Open
    Known as Viscount Hillingham, and will be Earl of Harringby when his father passes. He is a wizard, who attended Hogwarts, and his house is open (Not slytherin). Carefree and compassionate the Viscount has a soft spot for sob stories, and has been known to take in waifs and strays, giving jobs in his household to those who would otherwise fail to get employment. His marital status is up to the player but he would be hurlable and would probably not have a ‘serious’ profession but could be an author, painter, explorer or anything else that lets him work on his own time/terms

    Daisypath Anniversary tickers
    10s | UCPB | STUDENT | BILL MILNER
    Joseph Scrimgeour (b. 1870) is the younger brother of Annabelle Scrimgeour. Upon attending Hogwarts, he was sorted into Hufflepuff. He is only a blood purist in regards to muggles and muggleborns — he feels no superiority towards halfbloods. Joseph is very athletic and is a big quidditch fan. Though highly intelligent, his immaturity and desire to be the center of attention can sometimes mask this. He wants to play professional quidditch one day, but with both of his parents' disapproval, he's considered a Ministry career. He was previously played by me before I revamped the family, so nothing in his old app is relevant. He should, however, be registered with extra characters.

    Davinder Patil for @Blythe Fairchild
    incoming first year — unattached child — pureblood — plot, ho!

    After his mother’s tragic death of cholera in the autumn of 1886, he was delivered to Mayfield Fairchild’s home and subsequently whisked off to Britain where he was deposited into the care of Temperance. He doesn’t particularly like her, as she canes him whenever he speaks his native tongue in an effort to acclimate him—and his English isn’t particularly good yet. He does like his work with the house’s gardener, though, and is excited to attend Hogwarts in September. The suggested PB is Sunny Pawar with alternatives to be Indian or half-Indian. His reputation is 4. There is a plot, and it is secret.

    Hudson Pine for @Hiram Birch
    fifth year — unttached — halfblood — potential prefect!

    The younger of Hiram’s two half-brothers, Hudson was born in 1871 and is presently in any house. I have put absolutely no thought into him so uh…here, have a blank canvas >.> He doesn’t even get a suggested PB. He only gets Tom Holland as a suggested PB because Bex didn't use him for Solomon. You should love him, because I clearly don’t. His wand is not made of pine.

    Family includes: @Ottilie Pine @Solomon Pine @Zadie Pine

    HEYA, SIS!

    Diligence “Gennie” Flynn for @Patsy Flynn
    20s — flexible — halfblood — #datsass
    Patsy’s half-sister, born in 1859 and a Gryffindor during her time at Hogwarts. Presently, she works as a Ministry secretary and is either single or recently engaged to an LC man. After the death of her father and stepmother, Gennie left Hogwarts with her OWLs in hand to ‘do right by’ her little sister, though the two had help from their paternal grandparents. Upon realizing that Patsy wouldn’t be going back to Hogwarts, she said, “We did not put in all this work so you could end up like me!” Though content with her lot in life, she expects a hell of a lot more of her more ambitious sister, and will kick some ass if that’s what it takes to get her there. Her reputation is 5.

    The halfblooded/pureblooded Orla Flynn was disowned by her natal family for marrying beneath herself; as such, nether Gennie nor Patsy had ever met them—creating issues when it came time to prove Patsy’s heritage. Gennie was of little help here, as her stepmother was only ever introduced to her by her Christian name. The background and circumstances of her own mother are up to the player, provided she was fully human and married to John Flynn. The suggested PB is Janelle Monae.

    THE MUSKETEERS

    Issie Swift was raised in a very proper household—she ought to have been, given that her mother was an etiquette instructor! Her father was also deeply in love with quidditch, giving the girlish Ismene a dual love of watching quidditch and not disappointing her mother. She’s finally free of the clutches of her academics, and needs her two closest friends!

    [Image: xZaOY02.jpg]

    [s]Loretta Browne (MCPB b. 1867) has been her best friend since their first year together in Hufflepuff. The younger sister of @Odira Potter (with whom she used to be close, but hasn’t been since Odira’s amnesia), Loretta has always been a kind and creative girl, though has been shy socially since her debut after finishing her seventh year at Hogwarts. Secretly, she is rather afraid to get married, though she doesn’t feel as though she can tell this to the love-crazy Ismene. The suggested PB is Camilla Mendes with alternatives to have dark hair. She was previously played. Reserved for Emma

    [Image: OJoOLZw.jpg?1]

    Dorothea “Dot” (MCPB or HB, flexible name, b. 1866 or 1867) became good friends with Ismene while the two attended PSYR together, boding first over their love of watching (but reluctance to actually play) quidditch and then over their infatuation with some famous quidditch player or another. While at Hogwarts, Dot was in Gryffindor. Though she is well-mannered and very sociable, her mother’s interests in seeing her children (three daughters total, as well as two sons) marry up means her parents put her into finishing school after her NEWTs. She left PSYR to a lavish debut garden party last summer, and is very eager indeed to show Ismene the ropes this season! She never really became friends with Loretta and feels a bit uncomfortable with someone that has known Ismene for so long. Suggested PB is Holly Taylor, but I’m super flexible here—particularly if you want to make her POC instead! Reserved for the Bean

    @Julia Gibbons for @John Smith
    thirties — married — muggle — big love

    John’s younger sister, born in 1848. Though he was quite frightened of her for most of their childhood, the two are close now—she’s married to his best friend, after all. She does her best to take Mary Ann under her wing, not wanting her poor sister-in-law to crumble under the pressure of being a mother and stepmother. Though she disagrees with John’s decision to keep magic from his wife, she would not betray his secret. Julia lives in London. The suggested PB is Sarah Paulson. Played by Lauren

    @Georgia Gibbons was born in November of 1870. She is in any house. Played by Miri

    [Image: 0SKs7pI.jpg?1]
    Cora Smith for @John Smith
    fourth year — unattached youth — halfblood — big love

    [s]As John’s firstborn, she will always hold a place of pride in his heart. Born in May of 1872, Cora is a vivacious young girl whose first act of magic (in 1874) shocked her mother into a heart attack, killing her #oops. She is in Gryffindor or Hufflepuff and is the more ladylike of John’s eldest daughters. She adores Mary Ann as if her own mother. Cora lives in London when not at school. Suggested PB is Georgie Henley.

    ELWIN ABERCOMBIE
    [Image: Jxo2Og4.png]
    B. 1850 | UCPB | ANY HOUSE | GENTLEMAN OF LEISURE
    Elwin is Evelyn’s husband and soulmate. Though their 1883 marriage was an arranged one, they quickly fell genuinely in love, and Evey sees him as her rock, the one person who can talk her down during one of her episodes. His good looks are tempered by the fact that he stands a mere two inches taller than his wife. He is a moderate purist with a good sense of humour and strong family loyalty. The suggested PB is Tom Hardy with any alternative to be okayed by meeeee.

    Of course, Happily Ever After is the way stories end because it’s horribly tedious to write out, so there is a bit of a wrench.

    He recently returned from a trip to America where investments were made—investments that will not go according to plan. Suffice it to say, Elwin gets potential ruin and a pile of secrets to go with his mentally ill wife. More details will be offered to s/he who picks him up >D

    "ROMILDA"
    [Image: 5GYdAuB.jpg?1]
    B. 1874 | MCHB | GRYFFINPUFF | SECOND YEAR (’87)
    Sister to “Thomas”, Romilda is in Gryffindor or Hufflepuff and is developing a crush on George. She has a bold nature that only intensified with the revelation about her mother, and her brother and father exhaust themselves trying to rein her in. The suggested PB is Bella Ramsey.
