1769: Born the second child and first daughter to Jacob and Mary Spinnaker, she is named Blossom. Her father runs a nice funeral home that has been in the family for generations.

1770: Another sister joins the family, and named Violet.

1771: Tragedy strikes the family as illness claims both her siblings and mother. Father and daughter are the last in the family.

1777: First signs of magic appear. Poor Blossom stumbles upon her father's work for the first time that she's old enough to take real notice. Screaming, she makes the coffin explode. Thankfully the corpse was not inside and no one was harmed.

1780: Her letter from Hogwarts arrives. Afraid to leave her father alone while at school, she actually cries the night after receiving the letter. After talking to her father over the matter, he reassures her that he will be fine and that school will be good for her.

Summer, 1783: Blossom starts learning the more... modest areas of the process behind the funeral home such as corpse dressing.

Summer, 1784: The summer between forth and fifth year is a tragic one. Loosing all the family she has left, she goes to live with a friend and associate of her father's, along with his family. It isn't easy, but it helps to have familiar faces.

1785: OWLs are not perfect scores, but are decent in her more stronger subjects. Summer brings more learning of the corpse dressing. It also brings learning of building coffins. Set to inherit the funeral home when she comes of age, it is good to get to know the work she will be getting into. As per her father's wishes.

1787: NEWTs come along, as does graduation and responsibilities. With the help of her guardian, she does her best to grow and slowly take over her father's business.

1790: Starting to notice that she hasn't really begun the husband hunt, she decides to shrug it off for now. Her father's business is far too important to think of what she deems to be 'silly romantic fantasies'.

1793: Upon returning home, Blossom is attacked by a vampire. Being saved by a wizard before being drained completely, it was sadly not in time before enough blood was drained to make her into a vampire.

Even with this new... change, Blossom returns to work the next day. It is her life, most if not all that she knows. In a not surprising turn of events... most of her staff leave. However, those who have been loyal to her and her family decide to make the best of it. Trouble of her new appetite causes most of her work to be done in private, while those that work for her tend to work separately upon her request.

Along with changes at work, she decides that it is best to move to her childhood home that she had inherited from her father. Most would likely not care if a vampire was living alone. It seemed to be the safest option as Blossom learns to get used to her new state of being. She still regularly keeps in contact with the family who had given her a home since her father's passing.

1794: As one year comes about, the business has changed. Meeting several vampires throughout the year who in need of work, she decides to make her funeral home a more vampire friendly business. After all, her life expectancy is... unclear. Human workers will age and retire, vampire workers have a longer time table anyway.

Keeping both types of workers separated as best as she can, she teaches what she knows. For topics that she is less familiar on, she sends her older vampiric staff to be taught by her human staff. Well, those who are sure that they can control themselves that is.

1852: One worker catches her particular attention upon introducing a new addition to the business, funeral photography. Miss Kiva Kenny, the vampire in question, has since been brought more under Blossom's wing due to this. Thought she still tries to not play favorites. It is, after all, a place of business.

1852-Present: Blossom continues to make business her life, even if it is a vampiric life. Having witnessed the passings of all of her human workers and their loved ones, the family that she keeps best track of over the years consists of the family who had given her a home.

The business slowly becomes more vampire and less human as each human retires... or pass on before that can happen. Blossom does notice this change, but accepts it. Trying to keep the business as welcoming as she can, she provides low prices for her clients. Advertisements are placed when it can be afforded for the company.

February 14, 1889: Miss Kenny leaves for America due to both an 'artistic muse' and the fact that the vampire related drama has begun to be too much for her. Ugh, artists!
  • A known vampire.

  • Owner of a funeral home.

  • An actual Middle Class vampire.
  • Her human life. While not really a secret, it's been a long time since she's been human. Unless someone actually bothers to ask her, she's just the vampire who owns a business.

  • Depending how long you (or your family) have worked for her, she either respects you or tolerates you.

  • She is the main trainer of the new vampire employees, leaving the human employees to train other humans. This is due to her trying to keep her temper under control. Training is the most stressful part of her job and she tends to loose patience for those she trains. This is the time that she tends to yell the most... which isn't that often for her normally.
  • She really misses being human. Sure, she's helped plenty of vampires find jobs where normally they would have none. But it was nice to be able to sleep, and not want blood. Just something she thinks about sometimes.

Plot Preferences: Personally, I love making plots. I like planning things out. However, I'm also willing to plan things out, to then ditch the plan completely if the muse takes me and those I thread with in another direction. My characters tend to do as they please, leaving me wondering what on earth I just typed. Trying to make them do something that they will not naturally do seems strange, and won't work the way that the plan was supposed to.

"Mature" content does not bother me in threads. Language, violence, dark content, and even smut don't bother me (though if we are gonna do smut, there has got to be a good reason for it happening at all). However I'm not comfortable doing these things if it would not be something that my character would do, and/or if it is not for plot development.

For me, I like to try to type as much as my muse will allow. Typically I try to match with the other poster, if not posting more. I do not expect anyone to have to match my post word count if their muse does not call for it.

It was certainly not a day off. No matter how many times several of her employees had insisted that she should take one. Simply because she wasn't at the home did not mean that she had the day off. It was a supply run. Nothing more, nothing less. Wood was one thing she needed to get, as well as possibly getting another outfit for work. Stains were becoming quite a pain, and asking her few wizarding employees for anti-stain spells constantly was getting annoying. That, and she liked to keep up with current fashion sometimes.

As she looked at her list, she hadn't really thought about stopping to do so. That led to bumping into someone. Looking up, she sighed to herself. "My apologies. I should have been far more careful." She stated politely. Taking more of a look at the other person, she noticed that he was... like her. Another vampire. Not a strange sight for the owner of a funeral home run by them. But still, it was strange to see one that didn't work for her.
