Did you know?

First names were most often used by childhood or school friends. If the friendship was made after school age, first names would only really be used by women. Men were far more likely to refer to their friends by their surnames, a mark of familiarity. — Documentation

Carson Bixby for Sloane Bixby. You can take the middle-aged man out of quidd—oh, apparently you can't.
Separating was also not a great idea, though they weren't doing great at staying together anyway. If she were to volunteer to be the human sacrifice.. well... Hogsmeade had plenty of debutantes anyway...

The Room Where It Happens [Lynn's Plots]
Hi folks! My name is Lynn! I have a small hoard of dramatic characters and also run Witch Weekly in my down time. The best way to contact me is Skype (ask if you would like my information) or via PM to Ophelia Devine

Welcome to my always-under-construction networking! I am super pregnant and thus pretty generally scarce and/or flighty, so I'm not in the market for many random connection type things atm. That being said, I'm always up for plots and drama, so feel free to come at me with those.

Upcoming plot needs:

Lyra needs vampires! She is starting THE VAMPIRE REVOLUTION, or attempting to, and she needs both folks who will help and folks who will hurt (though tbh, most will probably do both). Her end goal is to allow vampires to live peaceably alongside humans without murdering them. More on the tactics tba.

I also have adoptable family members listed roughly in their order of usefulness. Top spot is Mrs. Mulciber, Ernest's disparaging socialite mother - come play her!

Networking is divided by character class - although I am pretty awful at doing networking, I am always up for new connections, so click around and see if anyone piques your interest! Each character entry has a link to their profile/postlog, quick facts (hover over the photo, or on mobile click the photo), and little blurbs about what type of networking I'm looking for. I'm mostly open to things not listed as well, so throw whatever ideas you have my way!

The Needs tab lists every "wanted" plot or networking connection that could be filled by an existing character. These folks are highly sought after! Please be one of them and make my day!

My networking is best viewed in a full-screen browser. Viewing on mobile? Click photos to reveal character quick stats.

Mrs. Ophelia Devine
Ophelia Devine

Ophelia is a well known socialite and is often lauded for her skills as a hostess and her excellent fashion sense. She often feels superior to other women and can be catty with anyone she is not close to. She does a lot of harmless flirting with the menfish, but her heart has been soundly stolen already.

Ophelia was raised a MCHB and was a tomboyish, graceless girl at Hogwarts until she was pulled out after her fourth year. If your character knew her then, you may remember that her family is both odd and tragic.

I am mostly interested in networking her with other friends or frenemies (the latter is more fun!) or anyone who might remember her from her distant past.


Ernest Mulciber
Ernest Mulciber

Friends - Would likely be Black's members or Ministry workers in their mid-thirties or older. UCPB males might see themselves invited to the Mulciber's for events and such but other people could be friendly with him in a work setting/in passing. He's not really a staunch purist, he just wouldn't bring a MCHB home to meet the family or anything.

Time Plots? If anyone has any ideas for things relating to time shenanigans, that's his specialty at the DoM and he'd love to get in your business about any time-related anomalies your characters might experience for the sake of plots or open threads. Throw your ideas at me.

Fling? - I don't need one of these but I'm open to exploring the possibilities if someone wants to! He has been unfaithful in the past but not just for the sake of it; he has a very specific type and there needs to be a good deal of chemistry for him to act on anything. I'm not entirely sure what that type is but traits I'm leaning towards: witty; vibrant; young-ish; maybe blond but haven't decided yet.

Also, you could play his mother who is a terror.

Socially Awkward

Capt. J. Darrow
J. Alfred Darrow

J. Alfred is preparing an expedition, and would love to thread with potential sponsors, crewmates, or other interested parties. He would also be interested in either making or reconnecting with male friends. Old Hogwarts schoolmates would be ideal, or anyone generally in his age range and not too judgemental.

Alfred is also hurlable, although he's an awkward turtle and very slow to admit to his feelings when he does develop them, so any interested parties would have to be patient. Socially, he may be found at appropriate MC events, but might also be excluded without much fuss by the hosts because of his proclivity for "odd" behavior since his return.

Mrs. Essie Browne
Esther Browne

Esther needs friends. Women, predominantly MC. These would almost exclusively fall into one of the below categories:
— Relatives (cousins, in-laws, etc) and the close friends thereof. She is related to the Brownes (& therefore Odira Potter, Calliope Riley and the late Chastity Pettigrew), and through her sister's marriage the Rosses (and therefore tangentially the Fisks/etc)
— School friends. Grad years 1879-1881, Slytherin or with similar interests (divination, herbology/gardening, history, ancient studies, arithmancy)
— Church friends. Casual attendees of the Church of Magical Jesus who either go, like Esther does, primarily for the social aspect, or else aren't too pushy about how much they believe.

Essie has an adoptable plot!

She isn't really the sort to have enemies but might quietly seethe and hate your character if they are a) a church member with a huge stick up their butt; or b) someone in her acquaintance group who is overly critical of her skills as a wife or mother. If you play someone like that I'd be game for a thread to see how far we can push Essie before she has to say something. xD

Lyra Potter
Lyra Potter

Lyra is the youngest sister of the late Bennet Potter and the late Minister of Magic Darcy Potter. She dropped out of school during his sixth year to "take care of a sick aunt." While the exact reason she dropped out wasn't common knowledge, anyone who went to school with her could probably have deduced that it had something to do with misbehavior since she was a bit of a wild child.

Lyra mellowed out following her departure from school and took an avid interest in politics. She was engaged to August Echelon-Arnost thrice (roller coaster relationship right there) but I think only once was public knowledge? IDK, ask Beanie. She disappeared in February 1883 and was presumed dead until it was revealed in spring of 1888 that she was actually a vampire.

Lyra has not one but two delightful ads on my Needs tab; go check them out!

Freddie Townsend
Frederick Townsend

Frederick has adoptable family and is related via marriage to the Trelawneys, and so is always up for threads related to them. He's also an unfaithful ass and is therefore in need of affair hurling; the girl in question doesn't need to know that he's married if she's the scrupulous sort ;)

I'd also like to establish current or past affairs with women (WC or MC + unscrupulous). These could be short-lived flirtations that ended up with scandalous activities and then didn't go anywhere after that, if your lady is the type, or I could have 2-3 more long term emotional affairs if anyone is inclined and the characters click well. If anyone is interested in the latter I'd like a past thread to establish how they interact before committing to it for whatever duration! These long-term things could have already ended (amiably or poorly, up for discussion) or could still be going on. Frederick does not have any bastards, nor the potential for any future ones, so if you're looking for a baby daddy this isn't the guy.

He could also use friends if we have any WC males around his age hanging about, particularly if they spend time in pubs and can tolerate Fred being a cynical asshat on occasion.

He's a DP staff writer so if you have any 'miscellaneous events' you want covered in the DP and want to thread out an interview or whatnot, he's your guy.

Lou Jameshill / Charlie Williams
Lupus Jameshill

Lou is up for anything so COME AT ME.

You might recognize Lou from prior to his "death" in February 1881 if you are:
— related to him or a relative of Xena's;
— a Gryffindor schoolmate (+/- 2 years);
— an auror (or rather, were an auror in the 1878-1881 period)

You might recognize "Charlie Williams" if you are:
— an Irvingly resident (or were in 1887);
— one of the very few people who he introduced himself to in Hogsmeade (I'm okay with assuming or backthreadding some of these within reason but please check in with me first).


For Lyra Potter

               SAVIOR. This person "saved" her life by either killing or maiming a vampire who was in the process of draining her, resulting in Lyra becoming a vampire. After the attack, s/he either recognized what was happening and purposefully took her further into the Forbidden Forest/away from Hogsmeade so that she could complete the change, or else thought she was as good as dead and abandoned her somewhere in the woods. I'm flexible. Whatever the case, they either did not recognize her as the younger sister of the Minister, or did not report her whereabouts/fate to anyone.

The event happened in February of 1883 so they would have had to have a reason to be in the Forbidden Forest then! Also, you know, the sort to fight off a vampire.

For Lyra Potter

               BABY DADDY. Would have been at Hogwarts with Lyra during fall of 1881. She dropped out of school that spring to "care for her sick aunt in the country," aka go have a baby. Their relationship pre/post sex is flexible. Lyra did not tell him she was pregnant, though he may have guessed. He does not know that the baby was stillborn, though also may have guessed that.


For Lou Jameshill

               FORMER PARTNER. Would have been an auror in the 1874-1881 period; basically everything else is open. I have a myriad of different plot directions this could go if they run into each other again, so let me know if you've got someone that would work!

To bear too tender, or too firm a heart, to act a lover's or a Roman's part?

Seeking the Following For Threads or Plots:
  • A woman for Ernest Mulciber who read this article and subsequently felt outraged enough to accost him when she recognized him out on the streets somewhere. Since he has a train pass, London/Hogsmeade/Irvingly are all acceptable.

  • A Witch Weekly reader for Ophelia Devine to run in to in the streets of London, who might make a snarky comment about her supposed proclivities for visiting the Hog's Head with random gentlemen — or who might have heard from a Hogsmeade-bound friend/relative that they've recently seen Ophelia there and be confused as to how she escaped the fog. (Said friend/relative would actually have seen Nicolina De Vries, but since they can be an NPC friend/relative it's probably not ultimately important).

  • A Hogsmeade resident for Lyra Potter who is outraged by the idea of a vampire working at the hospital and might say something to her about it.

  • A Hogsmeade resident for Lyra Potter who is trying to protect themselves from rogue vampire attacks in light of the recent news and notices she doesn't have a reflection (or notices her fangs) and freaks out.

  • Someone who read Alfred's book (or at least read the hype about it) for J. Alfred Darrow, and who might be scandalized or intrigued or have an otherwise noteworthy and fun reaction to seeing him out and about in London.

Post-fog plot updates & needs!

Ophelia Devine needs to get her plot with Nicky started (@Bean I'll hit you up sometime)
Ernest Mulciber is going to be spending the majority of the month wading through the Irvingly Casino with a variety of magic-residue-studying devices because #TIMEMAGIC. He will be available for new threads with folks who want them (Flora Mulciber ?) but I have no specific plot plans.
J. Alfred Darrow is totally captaining that ship that's tasked with taking the cursed gem back to Egypt. He'll be out of the country for the majority of August but still available for threads either before or after that trip.
Esther Browne is still looking for all her plot things. D:
Lyra Potter is still looking for all of the above threads, particularly in light of the recent vampire attack drama.
Frederick Townsend is going to continue his current threads and then maybe vacay if I don't think of other things to do with him once they wrap.
Lupus Jameshill is going to the Ministry Mixer and I would very much like to thread him with people who might recognize him from his Ministry career and/or people who might notice his resemblance to young auror Theodoric Jameshill. Get at me. I want the plots.

I got the answer I was looking for, so I'll send a Benji letter to Esther sometime this afternoon!

RE: Ernest/Flora, I'm 100% down for a thread between them! Perhaps he could take her pet shopping since she's been rambling about that IC for a little while now. We can even use the suggestionizer(?) since those sort of threads are inherently boring :P
