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, @Tilda MacFusty, @Marlena Scamander, or @Elsie Kirke with any questions, issues, or concerns.

Well-Meaning Mother:  Agnes Binns
[Image: ezgif-3-37b6db567694.jpg]
1832 | Gryffindor | Middle Class | Any Blood | Any Profession
Pictured is Mary-Louise Parker, but her play-by is open

Agnes is the mother of @Zachariah Binns, @Juliana Binns, and Hugo Binns.  She is well-meaning, but she is a bit of a helicopter parent.  She tries to be very involved in her children's lives, which is met with mixed opinions from said children.  She is always seeking to visit with them and nudging her two unwed younger offspring toward suitable matches.  She is a doting grandmother, adventurous, and intelligent in her own right.  Her flaw is that she cares very deeply about her children. However, above all else, she is kind.

There is a lot of potential for future drama.

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.

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.

”Boris”
Vampire | A World of Experience | 250+
Few people know Galina’s past, let alone her origin, but her Maker does. When Galina met Boris it was in the Russian court at the invite of the then Tsarina (Princess) Catherine. Galina does not know his actual name, only that he was from the Northern Reaches of Prussia - if that was where he was actually from at all. The Boris that Galina knew was a light hearted dandy, cheerful, and protective of Catherine. He also was interested in Galina’s brother. Galina enjoys the fact that he often debated with her and that he seemed intellectual and well learned as well as fun. When smallpox hit the palace and Galina caught it he tells her of what he is and allows her to make the choice - die or be turned. Galina takes his offer to be turned and they both have to escape from the Palace. After a few days on the run Boris disappears and Galina never sees him again.

If he is picked up he should be new to the area.
