Lonely Plots

Have you got a grand idea for a plot but need a role (or roles) filled in before it can really take off? Post below describing the sort of character you need, your intention for them, and, if possible, how many threads you might require!

For example:

Quote:Wanted for Jeremy Rohlwing: a potioneer he can pay to brew an (unsuccessful) Eyesight-Improving Potion for him. MC/LC AB, professional or amateur, does not have to be reputable. Estimated 1-3 threads. Contact MJ by Skype.

You can be as vague or as detailed as you like! Requests for specific characters to be created must instead be posted in plottable characters. This thread is intended only to recruit existing characters into your schemes.

PMs on this account will not be checked.
Instead, please contact @Ursula Black, @Aldous Crouch, @Cassius Lestrange, @Elias Grimstone, @Amelia Evans, @Elladora Black, or @Elsie Beauregard with any questions, issues, or concerns.


I have a craving for a whirlwind courtship type of thing where a pair of characters go from strangers/acquaintances at best to courting/engaged or something of the like.  I am open when it comes to class, blood status, rep dings and some scandal~. Of course this is assuming they click.

The following would be likely to end up doing something like this and are my offers:
@Hope Crawford, @Kentigern MacFusty, @Lily Huddleston, @Mundungus MacFusty, @Pablo Medina, @Sayid Weber, @Xavier Mondragon

I really love the soundtrack to Hadestown and have been jonesing for an Orpheus-and-Eurydice-inspired plot. When I say 'inspired,' I mean suuuuper loosely inspired by; I don't plan to use exact character traits or events, more just the #feelings. Details tbd based on the character involved. I created Juliana Binns as an Orpheus and am open to a Eurydice of any gender/age/background/etc.

(Your character here!)
  • In search of stability [financial, mental, emotional, whatever]
  • Not super interested in the idea of love/romance but is eventually swayed by Orpheus' overtures
  • Proclivity to make bad decisions under pressure
  • A Realist.
Some lyrics presented to inspire you:
"All I've ever known is how to hold my own, but now I wanna hold you."
"Oh, my heart, it aches to stay, but the flesh will have its way /
Oh, the way is dark and long, but I’m already gone"
"I've been alone so long, I didn't even know that I was lonely"

about Eurydice: "a runaway from every place she'd ever been"
"when she fell, she fell in spite of herself, in love with Orpheus"

(@Juliana Binns)
  • A romantic
  • Not super practical.
  • Has some sort of passion project that frequently distracts from Real Life
  • A bit out of touch with the world, sometimes.

You've Got Mail
A couple find affection and friendship through anonymous letters to one another -whether through lonely hearts, or some other pen pal arrangement (lost letters/dead letter drop in an old book).  They share a great deal of personal information and confide in one another a great deal. 
In the physical world they dislike each other either as a result of a rivalry or of some altercation/offense that arises and is misinterpreted by both, with each blaming the other. 

Find affection? use the info to betray each other? Never meet and always stay the mystery of the letters? Who knows - no specific ending in mind but was watching the movie and thought it would make for an interesting starting point.

Open to using any of my characters for this @Madeleine Backus @Natsuko Mountbatton @Benevolence Montague @Samuel St.John-Black @Rose Hart @Cadawalader Selwyn @Ginevra Blackwood

Lady is a wonder
That boy
@Ginevra Blackwood is confident, rich and pretty.  She has had every advantage in life, and has always been able to respond with a sassy retort to just about every man she has ever met except for him.  He was a few years older than her - in her brothers peer group at school (wealthy MC or UC) and her first crush. 

He could be married, or otherwise unobtainable now (preferred), but it doesn't stop her from becoming a 13 year old again every time they speak.  She doesn't necessarily think of him romantically but he does remind her of the ridiculous puppy crush she had on him when she was younger. 

I want her to have someone that she isn't able to go toe to toe with sass wise.

The Lost Codicil
A codicil is a supplimentary document to a will that explains, modifies, or revokes a will or part of one.  It is usually a seperate document to the body of a will.  Victorian literature (and law) is full of secret codicils.  Death bed changes and secret codicils were very common.

The Plot
The will has already been executed - it was all straight forward! Everyone had moved on with their lives. 
Until someone found the codicil!

It was very specific - an arranged marriage - and without the marriage there would be no inheritance!  It's a legal mess!

The characters have some options at least - go through with it (including any necessary anulments - one or other side could already be married), they could fight it in court!


There is no limit on when the original will was executed.  And no real requirement for first or second sons/daughters

Purebloods - probably most likely, but there would have to be logical reason
Dead parents - or at least a dead father  -someone who could have/would have made arangements behind the backs of the rest of the family. 

Characters I can offer to either side - @Samuel St.John-Black // @Benevolence Montague // @Ginevra Blackwood
Could be induced to make this an adoptable plot if it suited someones needs.

Lady is a wonder

Hi, have you heard how much I love Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency?

I wanted to find a gif of this scene but couldn't, so you just get the lines that inspired me instead:
Dirk: You're a good friend.
Todd: I'm not a good friend. I'm not a friend. You just... project that friend shit onto me.

I want a friendship with that sort of vibe. Jules (maybe one of my others but Jules seems most likely tbh) just sort of assumes that they're friends - maybe after misreading a social cue, maybe because they just keep running into each other and she just slips into 'slightly too comfortable with you.' Other party (any gender, any class, almost any age) is at first annoyed and then eventually sort of accepts it — and maybe eventually starts to consider Jules a friend as well despite their initial impressions. Or not. We can wing it.

Meserimus needs a hair cut! (because all the photos of him as Gandalf are now super old and the quality is meh) SO!
I'm looking for a student (any grade) to screw up badly in potions class and basically burn off his hair and beard!
Accidental screw up, or was the student messing around? Thats pretty open.

Bee is amazing

Yuri needs someone to teach him to read! Kid goes to Hogwarts in September and other than knowing the alphabet (sort of) he is gonna struggle if he goes right now! So either a kid his age, or maybe a kindle/very patient adult to take an interest in giving him some letters.

Look what MJ did!
Based on this cbox convo (bottom up):
Quote:River!: Combine that with the custom wands from yesterday and it gets even better, i think

Bree: omg

River!: That's incredible

Finn: omg haha

Fawkes: "I knew i should have saved it for your sister"

Lynn: "this wand has been in our family 4 generations and then YOU came along"

Fawkes: mom is just like "WHAT did you DO??'

Fawkes: LOL i love that

Lynn: like it dies and everyone knows you forked up but no one knows exactly how

Lynn: or your wand outing you

Finn: Imagine doing something that your entire family is ashamed of you for, and then your wand follow suit.

Fawkes: right??

Finn: That's amazing.

Finn: Wands can "die of shame"

Finn: omg

Fawkes: ok new idea - someone spends years trying to hide the fact that their ancetral family heirloom wand has wilted in their possession

Fawkes: welp

Olive on Suicune: https://harrypotter.fandom.com/wiki/Wilting

Fawkes: it should be! like people change alot from 11 to adulthood

Olive on Suicune: in canon

Olive on Suicune: I swear that's a thing

Lynn: I love that

Fawkes: aka - can a wand unchoose a wizard? XD

Fawkes: oooh character/plot idea - someone struggling with magic becasue their personality has shifted to be contrary to their wand's nature

If anyone wants to try and secretly have their dead/ wilted wand repaired and have the wandmaker get pulled into the middle of some family drama I'm super here for it.

An incoming first, second, or third year Annie meets, either in magical London or at the very beginning of Hogwarts, to spark the realization that the magical world is not that different from the muggle world. Annie believes that the magical world must be some sort of utopia because of the nondiscriminatory nature of magical abilities, and she's in for the crushing realization that witches are still expected to be happy housewives even after seven years at school.

Before the summer of 1889, one of Florence's paramour's leased a home in Bartonburg for her so that she could be in easier reach to him as she was living in London at the time. Thus, this man is located in Hogsmeade and is either on the wealthy side of middle class or is upper class. Everything else about him is pretty open, he can even be married. He's obviously pretty smitten with Florence and she has been enjoying her cushy home. He probably has no idea she's a con artist but might possibly be aware he isn't the only man vying for her interest and affections.
    A boy in 3rd-7th year for Flora to decide she has a crush on, make a fool of herself in front of, and then swear not to look him in the eye ever again. A short 1-2 threads required, nothing long-term <3

Jules is looking for a research partner who is skilled in chemistry or potioneering! Hobbyists interested in making a little extra money is fine, they don't need to be a professional potioneer/chemist.
In search of: a dramatic society plot, inspired by my recent binge of Netflix's Bridgerton.

Plan A: "Let's get our parents/guardians off our backs by faking a courtship"
    Two characters are facing pressure to marry, but one is either not ready for marriage or has no desire to at all while the other is unable to secure a match, so the two pair up to fake a courtship to get their families off their backs. Either they catch feelings along the way or they end up in a precarious situation with their families, but the end result could be hilarious or super dramatic either way.

    Available characters: @Freddie Prewett, @Helga Scamander, @Rosalind Pendergast, @Handsome Whitledge, @Valerian Macnair, @Grace Greengrass

Plan B: "I'm going to use you to make them jealous but I won't tell you about it"

Plan C: "I can't be your friend anymore because of a man"
    One lady character is hoping to capture the attention of a suitor, only for that suitor to begin showing attention to the lady's friend. Obviously that will not do, so the first lady begins sabotaging the blossoming couple's relationship. Surely that will go well.

    Available characters: @Helga Scamander, @Rosalind Pendergast
