Victorians could hire 'professional mourners' to attend their loved one's funeral. These people would partake in the procession and were not allowed to speak, just look awfully sad! — Rune

Kristoffer was going to be great at this, because he was great at everything. Also his memory was greater than everyone else's, because he bet no one else had ever lost their virginity somewhere exotic like Morocco. Hell, he bet no one else had even lost their virginity. Inexperienced losers.

7 Deadly Sins

Complete seven threads, one where your character displays each of the Seven Deadly Sins — Pride, Lust, Sloth, Envy, Weath, Gluttony, and Greed. Each thread should be at least ten posts, with at least three being your own. Character accounts can be combined.


Matchmaker, Matchmaker
So I've had two characters floating around in my head since before the move, and I'm toying with the idea of merging them into ONE GLORIOUS BEING but want to test the waters first for fear of apping her and then LEAVING HER TO DIE IN A PIT OF USELESSNESS.

Off the bat she'll be a temporary character, but I have three scenarios under which she could feasibly stay on but those are irrelevant right now. ANYWAYS, X was born elsewhere to a working class family. As she got older, they realized she was a seer in some capacity. She eventually went on to tout her abilities as higher than they were, and eventually used "Matchmaking Visions" and their associated friendships/income to elevate herself to the middle class.

One of her most successful matches will have returned to England a few months ago from that same elsewhere and have been very devastated on her bestie's behalf at their singleness, so she'll send for the seer that found her SUCH HAPPINESS~, arriving in May!

Where do you come in?

I have a couple of ideas of what could be done with her — for the most part, she'd be a supporting character in your story moreso than the hero of her own. She has had some genuine success, more coincidental success, matches that suck but they're convinced they're just doing something wrong because IT WAS FORETOLD!!!111 so they pretend it works, and total flops. Ideas include:
  • Character facilitated Hurling Roulette, which I do most years anyways but now there's an added element.
  • A "Matchmaker's Ball" for UC singles and the people who drag them there.
  • "Romantic Counselling" for new debs
  • Psychic couples' therapy for existing pairs that are on the outs
  • Bribe your way into the arms of you beloved, or bribe someone else out of their arms

Is there anyone that would find a way to force their character into one or more of the above situations?

lady is kind of amazing.
With the sheer number of characters I have, I definitely have people that would fit a couple of those scenarios!

Honestly I don't know that I have anyone remotely useful at the moment but I just wanted to say she sounds AWESOME you should do it.

Hello its ur neighborhood Weekly Wench, here to help.

I would 120% be down for a character-facilitated hurling roulette or Matchmaking Ball. I don't have any existing characters that could help or host, but I have Livia Crabbe coming up soon that could be involved~

I'm like 89.5% sure Bella would not be interested in romantic counseling, but I'm summoning Fallin for Lucille Flint because based off what I've seen, it sounds like something her cousin might be interested in dragging them to ;)

Helga Scamander would definitely seek her out if her name came up in conversation >D

Violetta Lestrange is also getting desperate, send help.

I'll burn that bridge when I get to it.
I have plenty of dudes specifically for this and a couple ladies! Clinton Podmore David Pettigrew are the first to come to my mine purely because neither wants to actually get married yet but i liveto torture!

Ohhh Terpsichore Van Helsing, Perenia Kaylock and Julius Scrimgeour would totally be fair gain though they might need some dragging.

bree does things!
Barnabas Skeeter needs a wife like yesterday and so would totally pay her for a "vision."

Elsbeth Lupin would drag August Echelon-Arnost to an UC matchmaker ball.

Yes, love her. Bree is right Lucille Flint would drag Bella Scrimgeour to any and all events. Likewise is suspect that Felicity Adlard (if Hawke is down) would get Percival Adlard Jr. Involved in this mess hands down. And if we want to get messy maybe something with Rufus Bixby and Fortuna Lockhart and the mess that is - but depends on Hawke there. I've been thinking of reviving Mary Pince so that could be a fun thing for Mary to drag people too....

WW should run a "most hopeless debutante / most lovelorn bachelor" contest and have people buy a ticket/spend some small change to vote for their favorite. Then we can spend some weeks lampooning our "winning" folks in the magazine and use the money to actually sponsor them a session with the seer.

It's like a sweepstakes but no one wants to win ;D

is it a crime to love too well?
To bear too tender, or too firm a heart, to act a lover's or a Roman's part?
Is there no bright reversion in the sky, for those who greatly think, or bravely die?
