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

Hi my name is Beanie and it's now SUMMER, so I have a lot of time!

I like garbage people trying to shuffle the mess of their lives togethers, adultolescents who don't know what they really want, drama, spooky shit, and dysfunctional relationships. I don't like small talk threads. Hit a girl up.

Some other notes:
  • Skype is the best way to reach me. The entire staff team and a handful of other members can also contact me via phone or Facebook.
  • Coming soon: Miriam Trelawney, --- Devereaux.
  • Please post the link here if you make me a thread!

August Echelon-Arnost | UCPB | 31 | 7 | Lawyer

Private lawyer, activist, and reluctant party-attender. Lyra Potter's baby daddy, but you don't know that. Related to the Echelons etc. You might know him through Leon or Thom, or you might know him because he used to work as a Ministry lawyer before getting in an accident that permanently damaged his leg.
Good for:
❧ Activism and lawyer-ing
❧ Pretending he actually understands Quidditch at Thom's parties
❧ Pretending his kid isn't his kid
❧ Being technically hurlable but like... good luck...
❧ Trying to get his family out of whatever bullshit scenarios they've managed to pull themselves into
August is currently open to new threads and plots.

Cassius Lestrange | UCPB | 21 | 9 | Chudley Cannons Seeker
Extremely successful athlete and ostensibly my most depressed character. Lucius Lestrange's least favorite kid. Probably you either know him through Quidditch or Lestrange stuff, but other scenarios are equally possible.
Good for:
❧ Hallucinating in otherwise normal threads
❧ Being awkwardly famous in threads
❧ Trying to hit on Nora Abercrombie, which you may or may not want to ask him about
❧ Meddling in Ellory's personal life
❧ Quidditch and related subjects
❧ Lestranges and related subjects
❧ Ostensibly available for gay-hurling but like... good luck... even more good luck than August's whole deal...
Cash is currently open for new threads and plots

Elliot Carmichael | UCHB | 29 | 8 | Divination Prof
A member of your favorite Welsh family, Elliot is mostly known for being a seer outside of his other engagements as a rich heir and a former Ministry employee. Would be a goth in 2018, but is instead a bit of a Romantic in terms of aesthetic.
Good for:
❧ Predicting your death or pretending to when he's annoyed.
❧ Teaching
❧ Avoiding eye contact at social gatherings
❧ Tarot card symbolism
❧ "Full of crows, full of crows, full of crows"
❧ Trying not to hit on Meri Reid and... failing...
❧ Awkward threads with former coworkers
❧ Being the weirdest member of his family
Elliot has a plot I'm in the process of getting off the ground - delayed by my garbage life - but is otherwise open for most threads and plots.

Emma Macmillan | UCPB | 26 | 9 | Killian Macmillan's Wife
Cranky socialite and surprisingly maternal creature, Emma is related to all of your rich purebloods, probably. Judgmental binch who is involved in charitable society and likes a very short list of people. She's a delight, I promise.
Good for:
❧ Judgment at parties.
❧ Are you ableist? Make a comment about her deaf son and she'll cut you.
❧ Judgment at other social gatherings, but sometimes she's nice, I promise.
❧ #Pendermillan shenanigans
❧ Minnie Pendergast is Emma's favorite human, and she is trying to #hurl #her #sister. Let her judge your men. It'll be great.
❧  Currently seeking: The guy Emma was hooking up with in school from 1877-1878. Should be: kind of a dick, and prone to dramatic outbursts when upset, but otherwise super super open.  
Emma is currently open for new threads and plots.

Lucinda Cavanaugh | MC->UCHB | 27 | 7 | Mrs. Cav
Notorious letter-writer and former personal assistant to Thom Pettigrew, Lucinda broke into the upper class but has never been entirely comfortable there. Her husband recently began to use a wheelchair, which adds to her insecurity. Her most comfortable scene is Quidditch.
Good for:
❧ Quidditch and quidditch-related shenanigans
❧ Having a lot of opinions
❧ Meddling in other people's lives
❧ Phoenix Society members and membership
❧ Snark
Luce is currently open for threads and plots.

Arthur Pettigrew | MCPB | 29 | 5 | HOGSMEADE HOWLERS
British National Team captain turned Hogsmeade Howlers captain, Arthur is a recovered? human disaster, and if you're related you probably don't talk to him. Sorry. His best friend is Reuben Crouch and he is super happily married to Dezzie Pettigrew, but was a bit of a whore in his youth.
Good for:
❧ Poor life choices
❧  The hookup that made your character (of any gender) think 'holy shit, what am I doing with my life?'
❧  Quidditch. So much Quidditch. All I am is Quidditch.
❧  Being adjacent to Ben Crouch's poor life choices.
❧  Reformed? human disaster? antics?
❧  Loves his wife so much you guys
Art is currently open to new threads and plots.

Justin Ross | MCHB | 41| 9 | MINISTER OF MAGIC
Lol this is Ross, he is the Minister, you probably know his name and his face IC. He's a Scottish halfblood. He also worked in MLE for a thousand years.
❧ He is a progressive politician and is good for... being the Minister... and everything that entails.
❧ I am particularly interested in plots about politics and politicking with him, and in turn-of-the-century progressivism.
❧ Ross is married to Roslyn nee Fisk, and they are very in love, and you almost definitely know a Fisk too.
❧ Ross and Ros only have two kids with a large gap between. Hm, I wonder what's up there! (It's birth control.)
❧  Networking is making me want to die.
Ross is currently open to new threads and plots.

Malcolm MacFusty | MCHB | 30| 5 | DRAGONKEEPER
A MacFusty who spends a lot of time dealing with dragons, Mac is also married to a Van Helsing and a divorcee. So his rep is uh... not great... But overall, he's a chill dude, he does magizoology things.
Good for:
❧ Dragons
❧ Being surprisingly soft-spoken for a MacFusty
❧ Mac is currently working on breaking 'out' of dragonkeeping and 'in' to magizoology in general, because he would like to remain uneaten. I am very interested in plots of that nature at this time.
Mac is currently open for threads and plots.

Rosaline Bennett | MCHB | 35| 8 | RAVENCLAW HOUSE MATRON
Russian speaker and Nik Sleptov's secret mistress, Rose would have been voted "most likely to be able to kick your ass" if Hogwarts professors had superlatives. She's a former pro duellist, spent some time living in America, and has been a widow 5ever.
Good for:
❧ Affair shenanigans
❧ Do you need a Russian speaker?
❧ Having dueling opinions
❧ Play her son, plz
Rose is currently open for threads and plots.

Zelda Fisk | MCHB | 19| 8 | MA&C EMPLOYEE
One of my personal favorites, Zelly is the youngest of way too many children and really doesn't know what she's doing with her (personal) life. Her professional life is surprisingly together, though!
Good for:
❧ Being very awkward whenever being the Minister's sister-in-law gets her invited to parties
❧ Only being attracted to men who will end up upsetting her
❧  Getting herself into situations she really should have avoided, and yet
❧  Knowing a lot of complicated magic
Zelda is currently open for new threads and plots.

Kieran Abernathy | WCHB | 26| 6 | CRIME & POLITICS REPORTER
Kieran is another favorite of mine. He's involved with Jude Abernathy's revolutionaries, a secret werewolf, and an intrepid reporter. I'm currently very interested in threads with revs, werewolves, and WCU folks. Kieran has also started reporting a lot on Morwenna's department, so hit me up if you work there!
Good for:
❧ Crash courses in snarky politics
❧ Drinking too much and getting punched in the face
❧  Anything and everything that occurs in the Augurey
❧  Being somewhere he shouldn't
Kieran is currently open for new threads and plots.

wonderful set by Lady!
Hi, Bella Scrimgeour is here for Arthur's involvement in Ben-drama. Did you have a preference for when I made their thread OOCly for the Ophelia/Voyager launch? If you were still down for that?

Helga Scamander is Nora's friend and would probably get all if she ever came in contact with Cash.

Livia Crabbe could be a potential friend for Emma, if you're feeling that.

If Zelda is feeling down with her relationship problems, Dionisia Tweedy is here to remind her that that's all men.

I'm here for anything you need. Just holler ;)

I burned the bridges without regret.
Hi ho.

I want Cangie stat, set before she goes ~adventuring. I have a song to use so I can start it whenever you want!

I promise Wesley is coming soon, I need more Luce in my life.

I would also love for some quality Zelda/Gemma threads in my life.

yeah that's all I got rn because we're both garbage.

For Cash:
Declan Wood He just transferred to the Hogsmeade Howlers this year ('88) from the Chudley Cannons due to his missing a ton of goals in the finals against Puddlemere. He was dropped from the Cannons and picked up by the Howlers in the same day. I don't know that they would have more than a working relationship but there ya go.

For Art:
Also Declan - He found a purse of leprechaun gold at the Celtic Festival in March and used it to outfit the Howlers with weatherpoof team robes and dragonhide gloves from QQS. He has not told anyone that THOM PETTIGREW is now after him for the real money.

For Justin:
Barnabas Skeeter also ran for Minister and lost and would try to be all buddy-buddy with Justin now that he's the Minister. He's trying to come off as if he's progressive but really isn't, which could be fun for Justin to call him out on.

For Zelda:
We could hurl her and Barney for the lulz, though she is the same height as him which he might not be able to get over.
Lydia Harleston & Arthur - A thread of Lydia being all voice-of-reason mother-y person to Arthur's human-disaster.

Don't fashion me into a maiden that needs saving from a dragon

For Lady: LET'S DO IT
For Bree: We've talked re: Bella and Dionisia, but I think that Emma and Livia should be frands, and Helga should high-key side-eye Cash.
For Te: Art is Declan's captain now! We can work with that!
Ross wants to shame Barney.
Zelda... also wants to shame Barney. Who knew?!
Elaine: I think this would require a hospitalization of Art to accomplish, but I'm down??

I'm very interested in friends - (probably MC, late 20s-early 30s, Hogwarts-comrades preferred) - and hashing out family relationships for him. Also threads with any of those! Hit me up!

No I actually came to say Elias as a Sampson friend maybe? Calliope is probably rolling her eyes internally anytime she has to hang with her bro but I am up for sibling!threads anyway.

Also I feel like Calliope and Luce might butt heads a bit, Calliope has that MC->UC social climbing competitiveness, thinks quidditch is dumb, and also they're co-founders of the Phoenix society, lol.

As discussed in the cbox: cartography buddies! I'm okay with starting it, but do you have any preference for when you want it set?

This is Dev, he's here now, he very badly needs a few good friends who are in the 34-36 range, non-prejudiced both blood-wise and race-wise, and probably mellow and/or interested in healing/doctoring. Who DOESN'T want to get letters along the lines of "I'm not dead and I'm not crazy!"
