❧ 18 • GMT - 3 • SHE/HERS ❧
Helloooo! How's it going? I'm Eve, which is an alias for the time being. Currently, an 18-year-old who's been rping for most of the past ten years, though my focus has shifted to forums rp only for the past six years. I - basically - only play Harry Potter RPs because I'm way too lazy to search for other rps it's one of my favorite fandoms and offers my favorite setting. Charming hooked me with the idea of mixing HP world with the Victorian Era.

I tend to walk a line between entirely organic plots and previously-discussed ones. While I love laying out how characters have met and what circunstances led them to reaching a certain “point”, I prefer seeing what will happen once we start with the actual threading (if that makes any sense?). I don’t mind a few relationship plots with goals in mind - such as best friends to lovers, if romantic -, but my characters might want different things and have changes of heart through the course of writing just as people do in real life. Nothing out of the ordinary though! I’m a sucker for roleplaying family connections and romances, though best/close friends are also adorable and #lovemesomeICdrama.

I do tend to write a lot so please let me know if you’d rather I cut down on the number of words. This is because getting into my characters’ mind is my favorite thing and I love exploring the ‘what’s and ‘why’s and ‘if’s’ behind their actions. You might realize there’s a tendency for me to take wanted ads so hey, maybe throw some my way? Hmmm… I wonder who said that.

I consider myself a 3-3-3 writer but I’d rather fade-to-black when it comes to smut on the site. I only write sex scenes with people I trust very much and that’s if the scene helps advancing the plot and/or is meaningful to the my character, not just one more shag.

Next characters: King Lukeson + Idris & Stella (both adoptables)

Thanks for checking out my characters <3 I hope we can write together!

❧ 14 • MCHB • Slytherin • rep: 9 • Fourth Year ❧

Irene is a Fudge, which means she’s lived in the Sanditon Resort for a few years now. It also means she’ll do anything to keep her status, in hopes she can “advance” in life as she grows older. She’s extremely proud of her family and protective of both them and her closest friends, but she comes first in her own book. Her favorite hobbies are studying about herbology, creatures and chess. Irene is a Slytherin who knows how befriend most people, but she’s not gonna lose her time with most of them.

Friends: Most of Irene’s friends are Middle and Upper Class. She’ll befriend anyone who represents an advantageous connection or who has similar interests. Irene is sweet and proper, knows how to behave and can’t stand big crowds and foolish behaviour.

Enemies: If your character belongs to the Working Class and/or a half-breed, chances are she'll look down on tem and generally be a terrible person. However, I’d love to see her befriending one without knowing it. Also, enemies could be anybody she finds too arrogant, people who get on her skin somehow

Lovers: Irene isn't old enough to be in long-term relationships, but she could have a few flirtations. I’d love to play out a relationship that destabilizes her, maybe having a crush/falling for somebody she never expected.

Family: I call all the Fudge’s to battle! <3



❧ 16 • UCPB • Hufflepuff • rep: 9 • Sixth Year ❧

King is a 6th Year Hufflepuff who's a ball of anxiety but also a sweet, warm bean who loves people. He's ready to help anyone, however they need it. His main hobby is writing, though he has never shown stories to people, but he loves it, especially fantasy. He's tried for the quidditch team previously but failed miserably, though he's considering trying again. Recent deaths in the family, including his brother - which he witnessed - and father took a toll on him, but the young man is slowly building himself back up for the sake of his family.

Friends: King wouldn't think twice before considering somebody a friend. Anybody who's nice and 'there' is automatically one. Honestly, half-breeds, creatures, people, anyone. The only thing is he always writes his writing, even when he trusts them a lot; other than that, he's a pretty nice, 'open' dude.

Enemies: Enemies are hard to come by when it comes to King, though I could see people disliking him for how friendly he is. If you have an idea or a character who could clash with mine, do let me know! That could be fun.

Lovers: I imagine he has had a few flirtations. I'm not sure if he's straight or bisexual, so I'm just gonna let it roll. Nonetheless, he knows it's his duty to find a wife and he hopes it will be somebody he at least likes.

Family: I call all the Lukeson's to battle! (and cousins, relatives, anyone really lol) <3

Hi!

This fellow is a friend of the extended family (via @Pablo Medina who I think is a cousin of Fudges) and he stayed at the Sanditon for several months during their off season last year. Pablo and he had just returned "from the dead" after being lost in a shipwreck many years previously. Their paths may have crossed briefly around Christmastime if she was home at that point but that was also when Alfred was moving out of the Sanditon and onto his ship the Voyager. He will be attending Herbert & Freddie's re-wedding so that's another potential run-in opportunity.

He has some interesting rumors floating around about his and Pablo's time abroad - namely that they 'went native' for years and may have even become cannibals. Alfred also notably has tattoos which is pretty #exotic for this era. He sometimes comes to the Sanditon during non-peak hours to borrow one of their sailboats and race around to clear his head.

Update: @King Lukeson added to characters!

Hey, Lynn! Honestly, I don't even know if I'm sad or excited to let you know Irene will be rolling her eyes at all times she's in the same room with Alfred. She's just disgusted by stuff such as the tattoo and rumors, to which a) I want to slap my character (nothing unusual) and b) I wouldn't be so surprised if she's in fact slightly interested in tattoos but hiding it the best she can. Nonetheless, Irene is a rather prejudiced character. What are his hobbies, if I may ask? Also, I saw on his profile there's stuff about wandless magic, which Irene would be extremely interested in if he showed it to her or people for some reason. I could see her coming up to ask him about his time traveling if - and probably only if - this comes up.

Hi Eve!

Since you've got a couple of students, I'll just throw all my Hogwarts people at you in case any of them are of use!

@Nelson Higgs is a Ravenclaw going into his 5th year. He's very quiet, but only because he's been mute the whole time he's been at Hogwarts, thanks to an accidental Unbreakable Vow. As such, he's generally thought of as a bit ~odd, and hangs out with a Ravenclaw gang of friends. He excels at all things theoretical but is hopelessly behind on practically casting spells, though he's not keen to ask anyone for help. xD Besides that, he's adventurous and more into mischief-making than he seems.

@Jemima Farley is a Hufflepuff going into her 6th year, so housemates with King! She was well-liked enough before January this year, when the diary that she wrote obsessively got plastered up and sent around the student body, so that everyone now knows all the judgey/mean/embarrassing things she wrote about them. There was more to the diary than what is written out at that link so feel free to make up anything Jemima might have said in passing about your characters, and you are welcome to whatever they think of her now. XD For her part, I imagine Jemima would have always thought King was very sweet and also cute, though her opinions of him now would also depend on whether he shunned her after the diary debacle or continued to be nice to her. She's kind of a social pariah now. Let me know hahaha.

If any of your characters ever have done or will take Ancient Runes in future, I also have @Carmelina Cramming, professor.

I also have Hogwarts' (reluctant) resident hedgehog, @Aubrey Davis, who was once @Elijah Urquart's footman but now lives as his pet in the Slytherin dungeons (and wanders about the whole school). If you fancy a thread with a hedgehog-man come September, he's always around ;)

I ALSO see you just made Idris Ross, so I have @Ari Fisk, one of his many uncles! Ari only has a child of his own (err, sort of) as of this summer, but would have always hardcore doted on all of the nieces and nephews.

Shout if you are up for any threads, I am definitely game! :)

Heyooo!! How's it going? I was gonna send you a message at your networking today (as soon as I figured out the courage to post there), so that's pretty awesome! Alright, onto plotting <3

Nelson is adorable. I just read his History and poor dude, part of me wants to hug him now. Sooooooo, the first thing to come to my mind is that Irene would find him a weirdo and probably outright bully him, buuuuuut to escape cliché, another option is they befriended each other due to both of them excelling at Herbology, during their first year. She would be ashamed of having a mute friend, a bit, slowly growing out of it, but maybe she did stuff to keep their friendship hidden (he could realize this now and we could have a lot of drama). Any of the options work for me <3 she's a bit of a mean character, and most of the time I want to slap her, but she'd never resort to physical violence so there's that.

Yeeeeeess!! King's heart and my heart are both warmed due to, he hella needs more friends! BUT MA DUDE! I remember reading about this plot somewhere and thinking it was fantastic. I cooooooould see him being really sad by the things she has written regarding their common friends, though he wouldn't shun her out for the simple fact he also doesn't think it's fair. I could see him talking to her right after everything has happened and asking if things are ok, but also leaving it clear he doesn't believe what she did was excusable without effort from her part. It could lead to an interesting dynamic if you're down to plotting this further.

And yeah, Irene would straight up hate her. Bully her loudly. Throw it at her face. Etc, etc. //btw, it's more that Irene looks down on her for somehow allowing her diary to 'get out' in the first place, not for the stuff she wrote.

Quote:If any of your characters ever have done or will take Ancient Runes in future, I also have @Carmelina Cramming, professor.

King loves Ancient Runes <3 He's big on writing and one day he wants to write a fantasy that involves runes, also in hopes to somehow make it for better learning for children because he sees how much his friends struggle. He's taking it right now, yeah!

Quote:I also have Hogwarts' (reluctant) resident hedgehog, @Aubrey Davis, who was once @Elijah Urquart's footman but now lives as his pet in the Slytherin dungeons (and wanders about the whole school). If you fancy a thread with a hedgehog-man come September, he's always around ;)
............................. this is. probably one of the most fantastic plots at making me laugh out loud that I've ever seen. I NEED Irene gushing over this hedgehod, completely unaware it's in fact a man. Seriously tho, King would treat it super well and stuff, but I imagine he has more contact with Irene due to her being in Slytherin.

Quote:I ALSO see you just made Idris Ross, so I have @Ari Fisk, one of his many uncles! Ari only has a child of his own (err, sort of) as of this summer, but would have always hardcore doted on all of the nieces and nephews.
Aw, Idris can use all the love, for sure! <3 They could have a thread once he's accepted, if you're down!

Quote:Shout if you are up for any threads, I am definitely game! :)

Thaaanks for showing up here! Hope these plot ideas are good :)

Ayyy I love prejudiced characters, that's why I'm on a Victorian era site :) Alfred's main hobby is sailing, and he spends a lot of time planning his next voyage (these days mostly short-term escort trips for merchant ships or passenger transport, like the Mission to Africa).

He probably wouldn't intentionally demonstrate any wandless magic, since it's very "un-English" and he tries to be careful about people's sensibilities, but she might have observed him doing some when he lived at the Sanditon if he thought she wasn't watching.

That could certainly be! I could see Irene not telling anyone about what she has seen before he can confirm it with him. Want me to start a thread, or you do maybe? :3

I was just about to start a different thread with Alfred, so if you have time now you can go for it! He'd probably show up early on the day of the wedding or maybe the day before to see if there was any preparations he could help with, so either of those times would work!

Spoiler alert: I love all those ideas!

Nelson & Irene: Oooooh she can be as mean as she likes, I'm here for it xD Nelson would probably shrug off (literally lol)  most of her bullying, but I think it would be hilarious to mesh those ideas - like she's (still) mean to him and doesn't want to be seen as a friend - and maybe they've been paired in classes over the years, forced to hang out that way! - but secretly they've started to get along more than they otherwise pretend?

Jemima & King: Yeeesssss I love the sound of that, like he's still nice because he's lovely, but they're not so friendly as they once were because Jemima can feel his lingering Disappointment in her >D She would definitely gradually try to repair things with him (and everyone), but she is definitely in need of nudging towards being a better person.

And wheee Irene can bully her all she likes! Another person on Jemima's to-avoid list.

Yaaay King! Carmelina appreciates his efforts :D

And hahaha glad Aubrey amuses you. He was a wanted for Kayte so I can't take full credit but ;) I'm definitely marking down a gushing Irene/hedgehog thread on my to-do list for when school starts, threading Aubrey with students is too much fun.

Idris/Ari: Yes for sure!

Tl;dr, love your ideas and I'm happy to thread any of these options! I don't know if you fancy starting with anyone bumping into each other while it's still summer, or you want to wait until back-to-school for things, but feel free to start anything you want or tell me to stick a starter on my list :)

I AGREE! Duuuude, she would be so conflicted if she started seeing him as a friend. All the while keeping that mask of mean girl since she has grown used to it over the years. We could have a thread at Hogwarts, what do you say? :3

That's perfect! Do you think there could be some way she and King talk about it? If there is, we should have a thread with them too! And tbh I don't think so about Irene x Jemima because otherwise it's too many threads, buuuuut I could mention Jemima in a few posts just to have this connection established IC. (If that makes any sense lol)

Quote:Yaaay King! Carmelina appreciates his efforts :D

My dude is so anxious, he is dancing in my mind since she appreciates it!

Aaaaww, that's pretty awesome <3 Great wanted ad hahahaha I would love love love this! Also to establish Irene genuinely love creatures (even though she's terrible to half-breeds lol)

Quote:Idris/Ari: Yes for sure!

He just got accepted so there's that!

I think for some of these characters, it would be better to wait until school starts. However, if you fancy something between Ari/Idris and King/Jemima, we could have something going now? Honestly, I'm so excited about these ideas I don't really want to wait to write lol Just let me know what you'd like, I can work on a starter if it's better for ya

Haha yes I also absolutely want to do ALL THE THINGS, but since school starts in a couple of days now if you're cool I'll add a couple of starters to my list and get to them gradually as I cycle through my characters? / this weekend-ish. So, like, Nelson/Irene, King/Jemima, and Aubrey/Irene sometime! <3

And yes go for it with Irene & IC Jemima mentions, we'll just establish that in the background for now <3

And then if you have any ideas for a starter with Idris and uncle Ari, be my guest with that! xD

Haaaaiiii Evie my love, you already know you have all and any threads you want w/ me but I'm sorry I had to butt in here and say that once Sunday starts school, she would TOTALLY adore Aubrey to death and want to keep him as a pet, if y'all would wanna do a group thread with the three of them? :D

Hey there, Eve, welcome!

I haaaaave:

@Fleur Rey is King Lukeson's cousin!  She's an incoming second year Hufflepuff.  She and King's sister Sybille are very, very close, and they're always baking.  She's very sweet and a forever optimist.

@Clementine Rookwood is an incoming sixth year Hufflepuff.  She is the mothering sort who would likely take a younger student under her wing or stand up for them.  She is in King's house and year!  She is likely very friendly towards King and concerned about him.

I also have a few other Hogwarts people.  I'm not sure who would be best for your characters.  My second years might be good potential friends, though, depending on where Idris ends up being sorted.  :)

@Archer Belby is an incoming second year Ravenclaw.  He is somewhat of a walking disaster.  The poor boy is timid to the point of panic, even though he is very intelligent and incredibly sweet.  He has been the victim of a few pranks, and he tends to clam up when he's put on the spot.  He is incredibly interested in werewolves, ghosts, vampires, etc., and he would love to meet people who also enjoy those subjects.  He would be a very loyal friend to someone who gave him the chance.

@Thomas Montgomery is an incoming fifth year Ravenclaw.  He's a keeper on his house quidditch team.  He's a transfiguration enthusiast with a short temper.  His mother ran away with a pornographer, and it haunts him.

Oh boi, King and Fleur are probably established friends already!! I mean C'MON. I bet he showed her around when she first started Hogwarts and he's like, so proud of her as she grows up and learns more/better magic. We could have a thread for them if she ever needs help with something, I think.... he tends to keep his own worries to himself so there's that.

Quote:@Clementine Rookwood is an incoming sixth year Hufflepuff.  She is the mothering sort who would likely take a younger student under her wing or stand up for them.  She is in King's house and year!  She is likely very friendly towards King and concerned about him.

Irene is already disgusted, whereas King wants her for a friend. I love the idea that she's concerned about him <3 maybe they're either very close oooor not so close at all but she hears stuff go around about his anxiety? However you'd prefer!

I also have Stella now, sixth-year gryffindor who's a bit of a rebel. I could imagine Clementine telling Stella to be more patient and careful, wheras Stells just... completely ignores it, probably (she has no shame .sad)

Quote:I also have a few other Hogwarts people.  I'm not sure who would be best for your characters.  My second years might be good potential friends, though, depending on where Idris ends up being sorted.  :)

YES

that's all I have to say. yes. all the connections #gimme

Can he and Idris please please please become like really good friends because no other reason than I feel like they would indeed be very good friends? Idris is inventive, literally loves inventing things, but defends his friends and is open-minded about creatures a whole lot, so he'd help Archer with his researches and interests.

Quote:@Thomas Montgomery is an incoming fifth year Ravenclaw.  He's a keeper on his house quidditch team.  He's a transfiguration enthusiast with a short temper.  His mother ran away with a pornographer, and it haunts him.

Damn dude, poor guy. Welll... Irene could have befriended him? Depending on how/who his family is. Maybe turned his back to him after a scandal? Unless it was way in the past. Then dunno if she would have befriended him. /now this is just confusing, sorry

anyways, thanks for showing up around here!! Sorry I'm just throwing ideas instead of going for something more careful >.<

Welp! I dunno why I didn't see you replied until now, but whoo!

I love all the ideas! I guess pick one or two of your favorite pairings, and we can start there? I'd love to thread with anybody!
