APPEARANCE
In life, Herbert was a tall man with sandy hair and blue eyes, and a delightful smile. That same smile still adorns his rather more transluscent features, but any pigmentation has been lost to the rigours of spirit-hood. He remains in the suit in which he died, and his legs dangle even more uselessly beneath him than those of most spirits, for they were crushed in the accident that took his life.

PERSONALITY
CURIOUS — CHARMING — JOVIAL — KIND — OPTIMISTIC — IMPULSIVE
OTHER
NOTES FROM BEFORE DEATH:
  • Was a strong swimmer and a skillful illustrator. The latter is why his scribe’s poor drawing skills drive him mad.

SKILLS:
  • In addition to English, Herbert is fluent in Mermish and French. He is proficient in Latin and Greek, and can swear in German.
  • Can float through walls. That’s sort of a skill, right?

PUBLICATIONS:
  • A Detailed Comparison of Muggle and Magical Aquatic Species, pub. 1872
  • Into the Wilds of Greece, pub. 1874
  • The Siren’s Call, pub. 1875
  • Into the Wilds of the Orient, pub. 1877
  • Remarkable Species of the English Coast, pub. 1883


The Sanditon Resort
Est. 1883

Located in coastal Sussex, the Sanditon Resort was opened by Herbert and Freddie Fudge, who had themselves experienced the drama associated with a family vacation featuring magical children. Envisioned as a place where magical folk of all (but mainly MC and UC :P) walks of life could experience the sea, it has grown to include a bustling boardwalk, several cottages for let, and even a small zoo!

Come to the beach and experience the pound of the surf, with the temperature tweaked within the marked buoys to be closer to that of the Mediterranean. The beach itself is open to anyone, though use of the bathing machines is restricted to guests. You may even get to meet one of the four merfolk that reside among the rocks offshore!

Pick up a snack or souvenir from the boardwalk, where everything from balloon animals to beauty products are available. Guests in the summer months can also enjoy a sundae from Fudge & Son Sussex, typically open from May through September. During the high season, the boardwalk is also open to various performers—though none, we assure you, are infected with the laughing plague!

Lose yourself in our labyrinth, with twists, turns, and exquisite landscaping and décor. Find at its heart our new roller skating rink, opening for the first time in the 1887 season!

Experience the magic of our menagerie, currently home to golden snidgets, a pair of unicorns, a trio of Cornish pixies, as well as muggle creatures such as lions and zebras. It is small in size, but sure to be an enjoyable experience!

Come to us for your next event, and let us help make it a memorable one by hosting it in one of our ballrooms.

Spend your evening by the fire in one of our comfortable rooms or, if you need more space, hire a cottage for the week-end!

Our suites (14) feature a small parlour and two bedchambers, as well as a room for bathing. Our cottages (7) feature a large parlour, bathing room, conservatory, and two-to-four bedrooms. Our new series of bungalows (10) offer the same amenities as our suites, but with more privacy. Our new series of flats (8) are located in the same building as our two ballrooms, featuring each three bedrooms, two small adjoining rooms for personal staff, a parlour, bathing room, and balcony. Finally, even your personal staff might stay in style with ten double rooms available to each sex in our lodging house. All bookings include complimentary breakfast at the main house, half-price admission to the zoo, and use of the bathing machines.

RATES:

Single suite, 1-2 occupants: Affordable to all MC persons who aren’t destitute.
Single suite, 2-4 occupants: Affordable to comfortable MC persons.

HISTORY
1849 - 1853 | After ten years of trying to produce a child, Eugenia Fudge finally succeeds in producing her husband with a child, named Herbert Ellison Fudge. The only child of a troll specialist and an experimental potioneer, Herbert had a loving, if unusual, childhood.

1854 | Herbert’s first act of magic sees him accidentally transfigure an iguana into a small dragon. Whoops. The appropriate authorities are called in once the reptile sets a small fire in the house.

1860 | Upon arrival at Hogwarts, Bertie’s natural curiosity sees him placed in Ravenclaw house. Though not the brightest in his house, he does love to learn.

1862 | A long-time interest in magical beasts of all sorts sees him choose Care of Magical Creatures as an elective. He also takes on Earth Magic for good measure.

1864 | A particularly aggressive bludger to the head during a club quidditch match at the end of the term sees him miss the last two weeks of his classes, and he fails two of his examinations as a result. Fortunately, they are not his OWLs. He does not return to quidditch in the fall.

1865 | With the exception of a P in History of Magic, Bertie passes all of his OWLs. When he returns for his sixth year, he chooses to take Charms, COMC, Potions, Earth Magic, and Herbology.

1866 | As detention for overfeeding the groundskeeper’s hippogriffs, Bertie is tasked with tutoring three younger students in Care of Magical Creatures. One of them is a Hufflepuff, Miss Winifred Fisk, who would later go on to become his wife!

1867 | Herbert completes his Hogwarts education and begins apprenticing under Uncle Jed, a well-respected magizoologist who is not actually related to him but a very good friend and colleague of his father.

1869 | He becomes reacquainted with Miss Fisk, now working for her family’s business after leaving school following her OWLs. By the end of the year, the pair wish to formally court, but both his family and hers are opposed given his young age.

1870 | So they elope and move in with Uncle Jed.

1871 | Bertie is pleased to learn that not all women suffer from his mother’s childbearing woes as Winifred presents him with a healthy son, Somersby Jedidiah. The birth of their first grandchild brings Gilbert and Eugenia to realize they should probably stop being mad at their only spawn, AND EVERYONE IS HAPPY ONCE AGAIN.

1872 | Bertie publishes his first book and becomes a proper magizoologist in his own right.

1873 | Holliday is born.

1874 | Whilst away researching merfolk in Greece, Herbert accidentally goes to bed with the wife of a local Herbologist. This is his first of many infidelities, all of which he will swear with his dying breath were entirely unintentional. He returns home with lots of guilt gifts to learn that he’s gone and missed his son’s first sign of magic.

1875 | Irene is born.

1877 | Paxton is born in February.

1878 | Sunday is born in July on, go figure, a Sunday.

1879 | Irene’s first act of magic breathes life back into a dying rosebush.

1880 | Whilst on a family vacation at the seaside, both Holliday and Paxton make their first displays of magic. The former transfigures a muggle toddler into a turtle and the latter causes a bolt of lightning to electrocute a local fisherman. The Ministry of Magic is forced to come clean up the mess, and the Fudge family swears off holidays as there is no safe way to do so with so many magical children.

1881 | An errant troll club falls upon Gilbert’s head, killing him instantly. The surprisingly large amount of savings that he has passes, naturally, to Bertie, but as a trade-off, his mother moves in with them. Some of the money goes into expanding their Godric’s Hollow home to accommodate her, but the rest is invested.

1882 | When one of their investments pays off particularly well, Herbert and Winifred decide to take their savings and put it towards their lifelong dreams: a place by the sea for her and a menagerie for him. They sell the family home and buy up some land near Sanditon, upon which they begin to build up a magical resort. That fall, Somersby goes to Hogwarts.

1883 | In May, the resort formally opens, and is even featured in the paper! The first season is modestly successful, and proceeds go towards establishing Herbert’s small zoo.

1884 | April sees Eugenia remarry at the ripe old age of seventy to none other than Uncle Jed! The plague makes for a poor summer at Sanditon Resort. Holliday starts Hogwarts in the fall.

1885 | The resort bounces back from the previous year’s poor performance, but Bertie is almost caught in bed with the wives of one of the guests!

1887 | Herbert is crushed to death during the disaster at the Wizarding World Market. Unsatisfied that he had accomplished all of his life he might have wished, he remains in the mortal realm as a ghost.

GOT A NEW THREAD FOR ME?

  • I am almost always down for throwing characters together if you have some sort of 'hook' for me because...
  • I don't care for "meet & greet" threads and if I find myself in one, am prone to causing explosions.
  • For planned (non-open) threads, I prefer to have a vague idea of setting and potential goals, but the the understanding that those goals may not come to pass—characters can be dicks that way ;)
  • I do not pre-plan romance. Even if my character is happily married, there should always be the understanding that this can change!
  • I prefer fade-to-black for sexual situations. I don't have anything against smut per se, but I would rather write no smut than bad smut!
  • I am a teacher who also volunteers with young children. Student-professor relationships are firm no-go areas for me.
  • My posts typically range in length from 100 to 300 words. They will sometimes be longer and sometimes shorter, depending on what the thread demands.
  • Please give me a heads up if you intend on anything that can damage my character's reputation or send them into mourning!

    We are very up on recycling. We crossbreed our plastics with our cows, and then instead of being milked traditionally, they lay milk bags much like chickens lay eggs.
