Did you know?

The Language of the Flowers was a popular method to express feelings where words might be improper, but did you know other means of doing so? Some ladies used their parasols, as well as their fans, gloves, and hankies to flirt with a gentleman (or alternatively, tell them to shove it!). — Bree

This boy, then. He wasn't new. Wasn't one of the worst people in the common room, those rotten rich boys - like Mr. Jailkeeper - who could not fathom a world beyond their own farts. Was a good working class lad, so he'd heard. Had a bit of a weird looking face, and a bit of a weird thing for preaching. Still.

Grace's Networking

Hi! I'm Grace, and I'm pretty young, so usually no mature content for me! Swearing is okay, if you feel it's necessary. Right now I'm not the best at coding, so I got this from Lynn(thanks so much, by the way!)

Class: Middle(higher end)
Reputation: 10
Blood/Race: HB
Occupation: Third Year at Hogwarts

Personality: Libby’s personality can be hard to figure out, as she tries to ‘mirror’ what other people expect of her. She cannot exactly figure out what it is she wants to do when she is older. Libby seems to enjoy learning languages quite a bit. Around her family, she is quiet.

Friends: Libby needs friends! Most people work, though people with reputation in the 1-4 area may be a bit odd for her.
Enemies: Someone for Libby to go up against!
Crushes! Someone to break Libby's heart or make her feel happy, preferably someone from school in 2nd, 3rd, or 4th years.

Gerard Banges
Age: 20
House: Ravenclaw
Grad Year: would be 1886, dropped out after fourth year
Class: Working
Reputation: 8
Blood/Race: PB
Occupation: Skilled worker at Dervish and Banges’, magical maintenance worker at Hogsmeade Hospital

Personality: Gerard is ambitious, though it is little wonder that he was sorted into Ravenclaw, with his natural curiosity about the way the world around him works, which lead to him being something of an activist as he hopes to have equality around the United Kingdom. Gerard can hold grudges for a long time, but tends to make friendships that last longer. As he grows older, he begins to fear dying alone.

Friends: WC or MC shop owners/workers who grew up around Gerard.
Coworkers: Gerard currently works at Dervish and Banges’, but also as Magical Maintenance at the Hogsmeade Hospital.
Hurls: While romance isn't at the center of his life, Gerard would like to court a WCAB lady, one who can think for herself but wouldn’t be completely opposed to settling down. Preferably aged around 18-23.

Gerard needs his older brother

Hi Grace! All my healers are ~elsewhere, but I can offer...
Rebecca Grey, who left Hogwarts after her OWLs and is currently a potioneer's apprentice in London. While much of her work is focused there, she's fairly mobile so can get to Hogsmeade without much strife.

I thought that list would be longer my WC numbers are not awesome >.>

Hi Grace, and welcome to Charming! :D I'm MJ, and I actually have a few possible people for you!

Theodore Gallivan would have been in his year and in his house at school so they would have been dormmates, once upon a time! He's MC but his father, among other things, owns Quality Quidditch Supplies so there's a bit of a shop owner connection there. They could catch up or perhaps still be friendly?

Ari Fisk is a healer-in-charge at Hogsmeade Hospital, and generally friendly and kind all round, so he'd probably stop to say hello if he saw Gerard around the hospital!

I saw Gerard's into equality, so he should definitely meet Jude Wright and friends (OOC they're the 'Revs', they all hang out at a cafe in London); Jude's an activist and would love to discuss issues with like-minded people!

Aaaand if Gerard ever gets desperate for funds? Or ventures towards the shadier parts of Hogsmeade? Or supports vampire rights at all, he might stumble across Ishmael who is a vampire and super shady but pays people well to act as 'human blood banks' for him. XD

hiii Grace! Guess who has the perfect connection for youuu? (hint: it's me)

Dionisia Tweedy was in his year at Hogwarts, albeit in Hufflepuff, and dropped out after her fifth year to pursue a mediwitch career at Hogsmeade Hospital!

Post Log
Ahhhh plots!

Aldous Crouch

For Gerard and Rebecca Grey, I could see them bumping into each other every once in a while, especially if she shops at Dervish and Banges' He doesn't visit London very often, though.

Elias Grimstone

For Gerard and Theodore Gallivan, it would be nice for Gerard to have someone from his time at Hogwarts, especially someone from the same dorm! Quality Quidditch Supplies and Dervish and Banges' are pretty close together, so maybe they would hang out during their summer breaks as well?

I could see Gerard and Ari being polite to each other. Gerard would try to keep his tone more servant-y, because he's not totally sure which Healers can fire him. And even though he doesn't entirely need his job, he still really likes it.

Gerard would definitely have at least heard of Jude, though it's not too likely that Gerard would be in London, and I don't see too much of a connection with Ishmael, as Gerard generally tries to be less than shady.

Bella Scrimgeour

Dionisia Tweedy and Gerard could be close, I think! Same workplace, so maybe they see each other in there occasionally, but he would be a little bit cautious at first. Maybe he hears her opinions and they start talking that way? Or maybe they were even friends before from being the same year at Hogwarts?

Hi Grace!! Similarly to Jude, I have Kieran Abernathy who is a reluctant activist/less reluctant DP reporter and super secret werewolf. He tends to lightly bully hardcore optimists and thus would find Gerard pretty funny. >.>

MJ made this!
Ooh, more opinionated folk! It would be fun to throw them together, since even if he does believe in equality, Gerard can have a hard time shoving off old prejudices, and he doesn't have to deal with them, most of the time. Kieran Abernathy is free to laugh at him anytime he wants!

Hello :)

I have Alfred Clearwater for you - he's the same class and works at the Hospital annnnnd they would have shared a dorm at school!

Ooh dorm buddies! Always good to have those! We could do a bit of a catch up thread, since Gerry left after fourth year so maybe they haven't seen each other a lot?

Hello and welcome! I'm one of the resident old ladies here!

Firstly I have Emmeline Woodcroft who is a WC young woman that was raised in Hogsmeade before it became a proper town so she's been around 5ever. She's still at school but I imagine they'd know each other somewhat in the very least and so we could do things with them this summer. Honestly, they'd have some good potential romance wise in the future maybe.

And then there's @"Magdalena Backus" who is the same age. She worked at the family's bakery when not in school and is just recently going to be leaving Hogsmeade but I imagine they'd still know each other!

Another Glorious MJ Set!

Thanks for the welcome!

Maybe Emmeline and Gerard could have played when they were younger? He was somewhat of a less rough sort of playmate, so if they lived around the same area or they saw each other at 'events.' It might be fun to do a future-y romance with them, if they had chemistry!

Gerard loves to bake, but it's a little bit of a secret. It would be neat if they talked a little bit about that.

Sounds good! Would you like me to start or would you prefer?

If you could start that would be great!
So I have two young ladies he could run into, although neither is working class. Lucille Flint is looking for a romance story, and is likely to take things out of context. If interested I could have her run into him and begin to think he's flirting with her. Would he be doing maintenance at the Hospital Luncheon? Either that or should run into him at Dervish and Banges.

I also have Caroline Delaney who is mc and from America so she'll talk to anyone. I could have her run into him at Devish and Banges.

He may know Rufus Bixby from school, Rufus was a few years ahead in Gryffindor. He's a pro quidditch player now and mc but I can throw him into shops and around town as needed if you'd like an acquaintance with him.
I think running into him at Dervish and Banges' would make the most sense, the hospital most likely wouldn't want people seeing maintenance work being done during a party? He does get very excited about his magical devices, and can talk a lot about them. I think he would enjoy a conversation with either of the ladies, because he's somewhat optimistic, and he's a bit curious about life in America.

I don't think he'd know Rufus too well, he's not current with Quidditch, and he might be a bit too far for Gerard to think about him all that much.
Hey Grace!

I have Declan Wood who is 18 and working class. I can see them being buddies!

Finlay Connolly is a magical bugs healer at the hospital. I don't know that they'd see each other very often, but he's around nonetheless. xD
