Holly Scrimgeour
"One day soon Holly Scrimgeour would be launched on a society that was, Connie suspected, in no way prepared for her. She almost pitied the young men but honestly she was mostly hoping she was still around to see her not-so-secret favourite student decimate all before her with the simple act of being cleverer than any of them could hope to be." - Constance Sykes in My Girl

APPEARANCE
Holly has never been a stunningly beautiful, but the fine fabrics and ornamental accessories she often wears helps distract from her otherwise plain appearance. She seems destined to remain on the shorter side and states at a mere four feet, eleven inches tall. She completely lacks womanly curves, and believes herself destined to stay.

She inherited her mother's straight blonde hair and has the signature cat-like blue eyes that many of her Scrimgeour relatives possess. Her face naturally rests in a scowl—a warning to passersby that she is not to be messed with. She wields her wand with her right hand.

PERSONALITY
Self-interested. Ambitious. Narcissistic. Vain. Manipulative. Determined. Domineering. Independent.
OTHER
SKILLS
    — Holly considers herself an excellent student, receiving good marks in every class apart from Astronomy and Herbology (in which she receives only average marks).

    — Holly's favorite classes are DADA, Ancient Runes, and Potions.
MISC. INFO
    — A pureblood supremacist, but has been known to pick and choose who she judges for "impure" blood.
HISTORY
1875 | Holly is born the fifth child (and fourth living following the death of her brother a decade earlier!) of Hadrian and Margery Scrimgeour. A loud and demanding child, her parents shuffle through different nannies before finding one that can actually soothe her.

1876 | Less than a year following Holly's birth, her mother gives birth to a set of twins. Sadly, the strain on her body proves too much, and she dies of complications within days.

1877 | Muggles riot after magic is revealed to their population. The Scrimgeour family move to Hogsmeade, more so because their desire for magical neighbors than a fear of muggles.

1881 | Holly's father dares remarry—and to a woman five years older than her eldest sister! Even at four years old, Holly does not appreciate her presence in the household.

1882 | Holly's first sign of magic appears during a petty argument with her step-mother.

1884 | The most crushing month of her life takes place when the laughing plague offs all of her elder siblings. Stephana, Philippa, Virgil, and even Emilia are buried in a joint funeral.

1885 | Holly's step-mother dares give birth to a baby and doesn't have the decency to die. He's apparently named Wilton, and Holly spends the weekend complaining to Cousin Cissa about the fact that she now has a little brother. She thinks he's ugly and squirmy and ugh.

1887 | Holly is finally freed from the prisons of her house and is allowed to go off to school with Camille and Cousin Cissa. Holly and Cissa are sorted into Slytherin, while Camille is sorted into Gryffindor. Quickly finding a love for her academics, Holly throws herself into various extracurricular activities and even contests when the time comes. She places second in her age bracket at the potion-brewing tournament as well.

1888 | Holly finds a friend in the Slytherin matron and struggles with her identity. She decides to becoming more morally upstanding, but struggles to overcome her temper and standoffish attitude. When scandal finds its way into her extended family, Holly withdraws into herself and finds herself more on-edge than ever.

1889 | The beginning of her third year means the addition of three new classes to her roster: Ancient Runes, Arithmancy, and Care of Magical Creatures.

Plot Preferences:
POSTING | My posts tend to run between 80 and 300 words on average, but can be shorter or longer depending on what I'm given to work with. I prefer faster-paced threads and love rapid-fire style posting.

CONTENT LIMITS | I won't write out gory scenes or ones that depict non-consensual sexual interactions. I don't mind normal smut, but only if the relationship is established and there's a plot or character-driven need for it in a thread.

PLOTTING | I prefer organic development for romantic relationships, but have no problem pre-plotting friendships and work relationships.

THREADS | I prefer not to have basic "meet-and-greet" threads because they get tiring quickly, especially when I have twenty of them at the same time. Anyways, my favorite ships and friendships have blossomed out of wacky or traumatic action threads ;)

Madam Sykes,

I suppose you've heard the news—everyone else has—about my cousin at this point. I almost drowned my pet canary in a fit of rage, but then I thought of you and relaxed my nerves. I hope your summer has been better thus far.

With well regards,
<div align="right">Miss Holly Scrimgeour</div></div></center>

Seneca Lestrange

One of the few students Holly considers a "friend". Even at that, the two girls are prone to bickering among themselves.

Calla Potts

Holly's temporary Herbology tutor, but apparently "Pippy Potts" got sick of her manipulative behavior. Oh well.

Germander Macnair

Holly's betrothed and, in her opinion, a pain in the ass.

Nathan Blackwall

Holly would just love to burn him alive.

Camille Scrimgeour

Holly's last living full sibling. A first year Gryffindor, the two girls have become somewhat distant in recent months.
