This would have been very disturbing anyway but then Pet's eye popped out and started rolling along the bottom of the boat. Great. Maybe she would be so fortunate as to have a kraken surface nearby and pluck her off the ship with one of its tentacles and kindly drown her. Petra Sleptova in Land, Ho!

Family:
The Smith family is quite close and caring for each other, and often visit one another if someone doesn't live with the main household (such as married daughters and working sons), and this connection extends to family members that are in-laws.

Her and most of her siblings are named in order of closest to farthest planets from the sun... after Sun was born. Due to this, her parents ignored which names were actually more feminine or masculine when naming some of their children. Most children have learned to live with/accept/like their names.

THE CHURCH OF MAGICAL JESUS

Established around about the time that the Church of England split from Rome, the Church of Magical Jesus is magical society’s clearest, most favourable bridge to God. It looks to the New Testament as the story of Jesus, a muggleborn wizard, and God as the divine source of all magic and magical creatures. The ability to use magic is God’s blessing upon an individual and their family, and the loss of that ability a sign that one’s family has fallen from holy favour.

Their symbol is that of the Christian cross, where the long arm has been replaced by a wand to signify the gift of magic to wizardkind.

Most notably, their beliefs state that:
❧ Magic makes wizards closer to God’s image than muggles.
❧ If a wizard is made non-human, it is because they have sinned deeply. If a wizard is made a squib, it is because their family has sinned deeply.
❧ Muggles are to be guided and protected as the lesser of God’s children, but never to be considered equals.
❧ Muggleborns were chosen by God himself, and so are likely to have bright futures if they don’t squander all their potential.
❧ Ghosts are the spirits of sinners too cowardly to go to Hell.
❧ For best results, church is to be attended daily.
Many members of the faith attend 'standard' church services wherever they live, such as at the Church of St Fergus in Irvingly. However, the CMJ also rents out Hogsmeade Hall on the second Sunday of every month for a more CMJ-focused service, members do bible study at one another's homes, and the older ladies of the church have an excellent pamphlet-making-and-distributing system going on.
HISTORY
1866: Born as the first daughter and forth child of her family, she is promptly named Earth.

1867: Earth is to young to remember this. Sun is off to Hogwarts, and was sorted into Slytherin.

1868: Twin girls are born and are named Mars and Jupiter. With the difference in eye color, it's at least a bit easier to tell them apart from each other when one actually looks.

1870: Another brother is welcomed into the family. Named Saturn, he is a fairly quiet baby.

1871: Yet another brother is born, and named Uranus.

1873: Earth starts showing signs of magic.

1874: Another little brother is born and named Neptune, after the last known planet of the galaxy. What ever will her parents do if another child comes around?. Earth is disappointed that there isn't another girl. So many boys in the family is quite overwhelming. Though there are at least the twins.

Sun graduates from Hogwarts.

1876: This answer comes quick, bringing along a girl with it! Named Moon, this is the first child since Sun to not be named after an actual planet.

1878-1879: It is Earth's time to go to school. Sorted into Ravenclaw, she takes a quick fascination in Herbology. Near the end of the year, she is introduced to the Church of Magical Jesus by another student. Fascinated by the concept, she learns more about it for the rest of the year. During summer she asks her family if she may attend a service with said other student and is allowed to. Sun chaperones her, and she is delighted to introduce him to this interesting experience as well. She spends the rest of the summer trying to convert her family.

1880: For her OWLs elective, she takes up Earth Magic.

1882: Done with her OWLs, she comes back to Hogwarts for her NEWTs and takes astronomy, charms, herbology, Potions, transfiguration, earth magic, and alchemy.

1883: Mercury gets married to another chemist. They certainly have a lot of chemistry between them.

Summer, 1884: Earth meets Mr Arthur Beck at church. Quietly develops a crush on the man, she says nothing of it. They do become friends and get to know each other through the church.

1885: Graduating feels strange and unfamiliar. Later in the year, Mr Beck requests to court Earth. Both are delighted when her father and mother allow this. By the end of the year, Mr Beck purposes with the blessing of her family. She says yes.

1886: In the middle of the year, they are married.

1887: Mars is married, and Earth has her first child named Moondew. Several months later, Mercury's wife gives birth to twins, named Helium and Nitrogen. His wife doesn't survive.

November, 1888: Once again Earth gives birth, this time to twins. Her son is named Gillyweed, and her daughter is named Floo.

December 31, 1889: Hosting a party for the end, it turns south when she almost gives birth at the party after being startled.

Keep in mind, this is the same pregnancy during which she also went off on an expedition. Just so we are clear on her choices in life.

January 2, 1890: Mars looses her husband, who dies in a carriage accident that he accidentally caused by not paying attention to where he was going and walking in front of said carriage. A young lady also perished in this incident.

January 16, 1890: Another son is born and promptly named Mandrake.

February 14, 1889: Sun elopes with a nice girl, though she is technically supposed to be above his station. Earth feels that they make a cute couple.

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 and violence don't bother me (though if we are gonna do smut, there has got to be a good reason for it happening at all and I would prefer if we fade-to-black). 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.

The blonde had watched the little redhead go with a hint of pitty. Their parents had always been so open to letting her and her siblings being free as could be. It was odd to see a more socially normal family go about their business.
