BELOW IS WHAT THE PEOPLE REALLY COME TO MY NETWORKING FOR: WORD VOMIT ABOUT ONE ARTHUR PETTIGREW
Art is ~gambling again. As of ~rn any gambling has been restricted to card/dice games.
This is a Big Deal. In general re: Arthur and gambling -
- Most people probably know that Arthur lost his fortune and multiple properties through gambling in 1878-1880; if you paid a lot of attention to this you know that a lot of this money was lost through high-stakes betting on boxing matches and Quidditch games. This is probably where most relative fall unless they had reason to keep tabs on Art after he dropped a class?
- Most friends/friendly acquaintances - including like, friends who aren't VERY close and people who are in his social circle, but not people he's super close to - probably know that Arthur slowed his gambling a lot in 1883/1884.
- Very close and longterm friends probably know that he stopped entirely, and also that his gambling tended to be very compulsive when he was into it. (It's not that Arthur didn't want to stop gambling in 1879, it's that he couldn't!)

Accordingly various levels of acquaintance are likely to experience -
- Loose friends - Arthur might run into you at the casino and/or be interested in any of your weirder ventures
- Professional/Quidditch friends - Art has been spiraling since Dezzie's miscarriage and drinking a lot, and is now willing to go to the casino etc. He probably seems a little more chill now than he has in a while, and if called on it will put that to ~Quidditch is going to be normal, hooray.
- Close friends - Art is being HELLA cagey, because in his head as long as none of you have the information required to call him out, there can't possibly be a problem.

Okay, this has been your Arthur Pettigrew Update. If you're interested in a thread with a LOT of internal Arthur as part of a slow-burn plot situation, (especially if gambling is your thing in some capacity), let me know!

I can offer Endy for this scenario. Comes with a side of 'oh, you're that guy from that time'.
Quote:— Ross is generally open for anything with Department Heads (Ross has a lot of threads rn, though, so probably just 1-2 of these!)
I have @Lionel Lupin, @Kenneth Cosgrove (a 'baby' in the position thanks to AtO prize), and obvs Roman as options~
Quote:— I would looove to thread Peregrine with a known werewolf situation
Endy again. But how Peregrine would come to know he is one is the question here since Endy never gives anyone his real name, changes his alias all the time and is a nobody so who would talk about it. xD January was also his first transformation though, so we could backdate to January 24-26th with Peregine coming across Endy coming out of the Forest being all 'that was gnarly'.

I am into!! All of this! I would love to start with Benji/Endy and Ross/Roman? Do you want to start one and I start the other?

OKAY I HAVE/WILL HAVE FOR YOU:

@Victor Carrow — he's the "will have" part, once he's accepted! He'd know Art and Cash having been in Quidditch circles and being around his age! We should also hurl him and Camilla!

@Tilda MacFusty — she'd have known Beth, as they were in the same grade, just different houses. The house difference may have prevented them from being super close, but I think Tilda's kind enough a soul that she might have felt sorry for Beth being in a wheelchair and may have tried to approach her on an occasion or two. Despite this, she probably would have made an abelist comment at one point or another and not realized it. But seeing as they both are MC and working women, if you like the idea of them at least being acquaintences, I'd be intrigued to hash out their relationship more since Tilda also needs more friends!

She also might be a good friend for Zelda, though I think Zelda was in the year above her! I can't remember if we've thrown them together before or not.

@Hestia — Peregrine is a recovering outlaw, but Hestia's still in the thick of crime. I'd totally love to see how these two would get along with one another. Hestia's still used to looking out for herself, so she'd be well guarded, but maybe that'd be a challenge for Peregrine.

@Adrienne Selwyn — I offer her for any Slytherin gatherings that Venusia or Sirius might want! She's ambitious and trying to learn occlumency as well as be an Animagus, so I'd love some more school interactions for her!

I feel like that's it but I may have more at some point? Lmk what you think!! :D

HELLO! I love all of this -- things that are more discussionpoints below

Tilda - I think that Beth would be acquaintances and that maybe they could become friends as we thread them? Also, she should be friendly with Zelda for sure, they're pretty similar.

Adrienne - would LOVE to throw either of them together, Venusia is also (kind of) intrigued by being an Animagus, they could chat about it.

I'd love to start with Peregrine/Hestia and Beth/Tilda if that sounds good? I can start one and you can start the other?

Hi, meet Lester! Here's his personality:
Quote:QUIET | RESPONSIBLE | SHY BUT FRIENDLY | ADVENTUROUS | EASYGOING
Quiet and unassuming, strong sense of right and wrong, sort of nosy. Adventurous, but not particularly extroverted, and gets nervous in big groups of people. It's the strength of his convictions that edges him into Gryffindor, (this can sometimes border on self-righteousness.) Responsible and intelligent, likes to be vague about what he actually wants and keeps his judgments to himself as much as possible... although they definitely exist, deep down. Difficult to provoke but shockingly fierce when he's pushed that far. Really looks up to his older brothers, and would like to be like them.
Additional trivia:
- He kind of wants to be a healer but buries that under a thick layer of shy refusal to talk about himself
- Very booksmart and would be a Ravenclaw if it wasn't for *gestures at self-righteous sense of indignation*
- Yes, I felt weird apping a character from the first family I ever made on Charming. and what about it!

What I need for him:
Gryffingroup: HMU on Skype so we can hash out their vibe. Right now I'm sort of feeling that he's of the "tries to peacekeep when forced to but really would rather not please help*" variety?
Other year/class mates: Lester is very very shy when outside of his comfort zone. I would like to punt him outside of his comfort zone.

*please make this worse

@Cassia Fawley is in his year but a Hufflepuff and a Prefect! I can also offer Violette here who's in the year above for awkward encounters too. Basically, Cassia would be the kind to try and put him at ease, but Violette would have a little less patience for that. xD

Addison is both in his year and apparently Gryffingroup adjacent (likely knows everyone, at least surnames anyways, might be friends with a few, but generally kept to himself. Scholarships aren't easy lol. I get the idea that he's maybe a little jealous of most of them). He also wants to be a healer (which actually seems to be a relatively common ambition lol there should be a club) so if you want to punt him into Addison's direction that could be something to talk about.

@Violette Fernsby
Whee, I feel like he'd be friendly to Cassia in a pretty awkward way and... probably a little terrified of Violette tbh. Would love a thread with you, do you have a preference between them? :)

@Addison Chatham
That sounds good! Lester doesn't talk about wanting to be a healer basically ever, but I feel like they're probably stressed about the same classes ?

Oh definitely! Addison's the type who's going to get stuck on DADA or something and wonder what his future would be if he had just done a little better on a test.

Rad! Do you want a thread where they work on a DADA project or something?

Here are some things I'm noodling on for now->mid-March. I have no notes on my noodles for after March 15 because I assume I will have different ones/updates by then. Some of these are continued noodles.
as u can tell I am tired:

HIGH PRIORITY, REALLY WANT THESE THINGS
  • I really desperately want someone to bring this up to Emilia, especially if they're a fellow Unspeakable (or an auror and work with Kit, but check w/ Kayte on their !dynamic with him first?)
  • At some point in March I would like to thread Camilla with an active purist
  • I desperately want 1-2 threads can do 1 more! where Peregrine is in the planning stages for this boxing match; do you want to sell drinks/collect bets for him there (for money and free violence?) Hit me!
  • Arthur is available for 1-2 threads particularly with people he knows who will exacerbate some of his worse behavior; for notes on my Arthur thoughts please read here. He'll be at teacup transfiguration trials, not competing.

medium/low priority

@Odette Tailler is my purist and would likely return to the social scene in mid- to late March - probably late - following the recovery of having had her first child. I do not see her as supportive of the Zabini family in any way, so feel to have them clash!

Sweetie prefers to go by the more proper name of Rachel, and your character may know this.

Let's shoot for something late March! We can pick an event later?
