As clocks and other timepieces were expensive, working class folk who could not afford to rise with the sun could employ a “knocker-upper” to tap on their windowpane at a scheduled time. Knocker-uppers would work through the night and into the early morning. — Kayte
But then Miss Dempsey paid her so great a compliment that she wanted to hurl herself over the edge of the theater balcony in delight.

Featured Want Ads

Occasionally as a prize, players may get to feature their want ads as part of the VERY FABRIC (read: coding) of the board. In a delightful coup, featured want ads will now be listed within as well!

These ads will remain listed until the character is taken, the requester asks for it to be taken down, or the requesting account goes inactive.


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

Wallace --- Bixby
Sept-Dec 1873 | Gryff | single | 8 rep
6th Year Student
Quinn Lord

Wally is the only other sibling to rival Sloane in energy. He was a little put out when she was born, especially since she was a girl and took a while to warm up. They have an okay relationship and he is most likely to encourage her adventures and is a mediocre student. He wanted to play on the house team, but never made it. He's quite bitter over the fact that Sloane made it as a second year. He likely plays Club Quidditch instead.

Jean-Luc _
33 | UCHB | Beauxbatons Class of '75 | Open | 9 (rumors)

The only son of the family, he will be the one to bear forth their family name - which means whoever takes this gentleman will be the one who properly decides the family surname! I could see him as several occupations, from international liaison to Quidditch sponsor, just as a way to pass the time. The family is rumored to be part-veela, though that is untrue. How does Jean-Luc deal with that? He is unmarried.

Suggested playby is Lucas Till, with alternates to be light-haired and roughly age appropriate.

THE SCHOOL FLAME

b. PRE-SEPT 1869 | WCAB | LEFT AFTER OWLS | OWLS LEVEL OCCUPATION | OPEN PLAYBY

While being hit with nostalgia on the old board while reading the threads of one of Clarissas more intense ships, I have decided to make this ad to give Clarissas love life some drama. This is definitely meant to be a romantic interest for Clarissa. This boy was in the same year as Clarissa and horrid at all things Etiquette which is one of the required Hogwarts classes for all years. So, he asked her for help in their fifth year which she provided gladly despite this being one of the first times she had ever been spoken to by him.

This boy was generally brutish in nature but was swiftly attracted to Clarissa and was quickly intent on wooing her despite knowing she is way beyond his social means. The fact that he had competition in the form of an upper class Slytherin in Clarissas year seemed to only encourage him and he felt that it was unfair he should be out of the running because of current lack of wealth. They eventually had an intense emotional affair of sorts and Clarissa even let him kiss her hand once. Scandalous!

All this transpired during their fifth year and he left after taking his OWLs. They likely have written one another since then and he has done his best to put in place building blocks for an upward mobile career of some sort. The thing I had in mind was that now that she has debuted and no longer in the safety net of Pendergast School, he will be seeking to pick up where they left off.

LUCIUS CORVO

b. 25 July 1860 | UCPB | Slytherin | Man of Leisure | Suggested PB: Colin O'Donoghue

Angelica’s younger twin brother, Lucius and his twin have spent their lives trying to be different. It didn’t take much work. Where his twin is a decisive perfectionist, Luc elevated chaos to a fine art form. He’s naturally bright but invested the bare minimum to get by in school, preferring popularity and Quidditch to his studies. Lucius is recently returned from learning the family business under his older brother in Venice, or so the story goes. Luc spent the better part of the last thirteen years earning the ‘rake’ moniker in as many languages as possible, but his antics finally went one step too far when rumors of a possibly less-than-pureblood bastard reached dear old dad. The threat of being cut off brought him back to Britain, but it isn’t all bad. He hasn’t ruined any British girls since his Hogwarts days and It’s been a while since he made his twin’s life miserable. Might as well make up for lost time. Rep is 7-8.

Marlowe Forfang
Still seeking: July 2021

TWO POSSIBLE ROUTES; EXISTING CHARACTERS OR COMBINATIONS WITH OTHER ADS SUPER WELCOME!

Route A: No, that's my pseudonym! Someone takes credit for Juliana's work. Are they trying to discredit it? Bolster their own academic portfolio? Hide the fact that they're a werewolf and were nearly discovered by giving themselves a plausible excuse for being out on full moons? Give credence to some far-fetched creature-related claim they're invested in making? The choice is yours. This can be any new or existing character but for best results should have some combination of these traits which would make them look like a more likely candidate for Marlowe Forfang than Juliana: male; middle aged or older; good (complete) education; scholar/academic; relevant life experience; upper class; etc.

I have a few plot notions for the near future but no particular endgame!

Route B: Identity theft This gentleman (or person who presents as such) can be any age and from any background, but shouldn't be recognizable on sight in society. He has recently decided to introduce himself as Professor Marlowe Forfang, groundbreaking lycanthropy researcher. His motive for doing so is up to you but some ideas are included below. After being exposed to some other people in the academic community, however, he quickly realizes he's in over his head. Juliana is torn between being livid that he stole her work and wanting to expose him (but not knowing how to do so without exposing herself as well) and wanting to sort of My Fair Lady him into a semi-presentable academic so that he doesn't entirely destroy her credibility as a researcher.

Shenanigans will abound. I don't have an endgame in mind but don't see this as a super temporary character, so if you're interested in taking him you should be in for the long-ish haul. Existing characters (with or without retcons) are welcome!

Pictured PB is Arjun Gupta but it's open to anyone.

Potential motives for the identity theft:
— He wants a steady job and is using Forfang's credentials to apply for a position as: Hogwarts CoMC, DADA, or Magical Theory professor; Ministry's DR&CMC; Ministry's Research Committee; contrator for some sort of company who could use a 'werewolf expert' for some upcoming task like a trip through the Balkans; etc.
— He wants to collect some modest income from staging bullshit Q&A sessions or book signings.
— He wants to live large on the reputation piece (because living off credit was totally a feasible thing in this era if you were respected enough).
— He's pulling off some totally unrelated scam and using the fake name to engender trust in his target/mark.
— He's trying to court/marry someone whose parents wouldn't approve and he's therefore reinvented himself as Forfang thinking they'll be more on board with that.
— He needed a clean start after some shady background stuff and just happened upon this reclusive academic and thought it'd be a good fit.

OAKSHAFT BELL
[Image: dBYuUwU.jpeg]
B. 1880 | MCHB | ??? | INCOMING FIRST YEAR ('91)
Oakshaft "Oak" Bell is every bit his father's son: high energy, low focus, and an abiding love for quidditch and anything else he deems 'fun'. In the modern era, he would likely be diagnosed with ADHD, and has something of a fixed mindset when it comes to academics. Away from his instructors, however, he is a fun-loving young boy who will probably (but not necessarily!) follow his sister and step-siblings into Gryffindor. PB is open, but pictured is Jacob Tremblay. Reputation should be 8 or 9.

Immediate Ties: @Madeline Bell @Cameron Gillenwater @Greta Gillenwater
Bonus Ties: @Alcyone Slughorn @Edison Moony @Milo Nox @Lester Hatchitt @Sisse Thompsett @Alice Dawson @Sloane Bixby @Calla Potts
Potential Ties: Other students & Hogwarts staff
