roberta maude weasley
seventh year | gryffindor | pureblood | application

user posted image
it is her hour so let it be hers
find it and shine and wind it always
    roberta is a good-natured and easy-going girl who is increasingly tired of being defined by the people she is close to. raised with an identical twin sister with a very strong personality, roberta often finds herself the less-memorable of the pair - even though she is far from reserved.

    bobbie has a great deal of patience for strong personalities and is over-all rather accepting and personable. she prefers other people's plans to her own, but is happy to make them work and enjoy them to the fullest. she is absent-minded at times, but rarely flustered and generally good-humoured. bobbie is easy-to-know and friendly, but she is a little exclusive about getting close to people. she has no trouble being casually nice to others, but she prefers a close circle of "real" friends, so she sometimes comes off unintentionally as exclusive or at least inaccessible to people not already in that circle.

    
she is a pureblood, but she's a weasley so she's not much for hate doctrine and disapproves of hateful practice by her fellow students, though muggles and muggle things do make her a little uncomfortable since she doesn't know much about them by experience and tends to stay quietly out of their way.

eileen agnes prince
fifth year | slytherin | pureblood | application
user posted image
here i am where i must be
where i would be i cannot
    eileen is a pureblood, but her family is not among the aristocracy, even though their lineage is quite old as the prince family lost their fortune generations back and have since become business men in an attempt to regain it.

    eileen exists, therefore, on the outskirts of the better slytherin circles, and tends to keep to herself. often, eileen's manner is rather sharp and defensive, possibly a little aloof and definitely contrary, but she is not a mean-spirited or even particularly unhappy girl. 

suffering from an over-appropriated sense of personal hopelessness, eileen is withdrawn in nature. outwardly, she appears rather dull; she is not entirely uninteresting, but her interesting aspects often fail to surface completely leaving her looking a little listless and absent.

    eileen believes herself to be unattractive and her belief in her lack of beauty has caused her to look slightly more awkward and implacable. her plainness would not be uncurable, if she didn't believe in it so entirely. 

eileen is also the president of the gobstones club. she is slow in acquiring interests and hobbies, but tends to fixtate on them once she has, and thus takes the club very seriously and distributes fliers to the student body at large regularly.
lisette dolores scamander
seventh year | ravenclaw | half blood | application
user posted image
and we toast the artisans
of antediluvian crafts with yarn and glue
    a halfblood whose mother was born in paris, lisette has a great love for the arts and sense of the aesthetic though no particularly strong practical artistic calling herself. she has a natural eye for beautiful things and a rather extensive of art history and theory.

    lisette has a small circle of artistic friends which occupies most of her social life. she is drawn to clever, artistic people, but is reserved in seeking out people who do not directly interest her. lisette doesn't really like communal living and is very possessive about space which might be apparent to those she live with. as well, she does have a slight vindictive streak and she is very protective of her friends, particularly john homme, her closest friend.

    lisette is very pretty and, besides by association to her friends, that is likely what she may have been noticed for. lisette is aware that she is not attracted to boys, and has a secret admiration to her friend virginia peakes, but keeps this fact carefully guarded. she has stopped dating boys purposefully, however, she is reserved enough that this is not necessarily a whistle-blower. she is often mistaken for being somehow involved with john.
druella aveline rosier
fourth year | slytherin | pureblood | application
user posted image
and they placed an ingot in her breast
to burn cool and collected
    druella has been raised to strictly adhere to the expectations for young pureblood witches, and as a result is compliant and her manners are very regulated. because appearance and not her personal pursuits are under observation she has yet to force her interests to mature to the level of her behaviour and so she is a little childish privately: playing with dolls and drawing pictures.

    though perpetually demuring, druella is very aware of her position and entitlement. she is not outwardly cruel ever, though prim and always aloof. druella is restrained in her emotions and demeanour so that while she is not really reserved, she is difficult to be close to on an emotional level. and because she is not practiced in emotion or affection, she tends to treat friendships with the same precise formality (and therefore listlessness) as most aspects of her life. 

    as of late, druella has an increasing tendency towards people she sees as authorities (primarily her brother, and parents) to become forgetful in a way that is rather jarring against her usual attitude. this is a very quiet sort of resistance that druella herself has difficulty understanding as her powerlessness and the monotony of her life are both things that, though she experiences, she has not been taught to dwell on.
gwendolyn yvette meryl morgan
sixth year | hufflepuff | halfblood | applicaiton
user posted image
well to live's to fly all low and high
so shake the dust off your wings
    gwendolyn is a prefect and chaser who also attends duelling and charms club, the frog choir and is vice president of gardening club. she is constantly busy and has a talent for time managements. she's a good student, though not an intellectual one, and she has to work hard at her classes to do well. particularly ambitious, gwendolyn is known in her classes for being a serious student, impatient with distractions or distractors. 


    gwen takes institutional conduct very seriously and doesn't think highly of people who blatantly disregard the school's rules. she has an intrinsic sense of justice, honesty and fairness and tends to expect at least as much from everyone else she encounters. and disapproval. gwen respects and likes people as long as they don't offend her values and can bear with working around her tiring schedule.

    
both her parents are quite well known - her mother as an academic and her father as department head in the ministry. their ambition for her is to follow in her father's steps, which she takes seriously, even though she is truthfully more passionate about quidditch than politics. she also is slightly naive of prejudice and doesn't see her gender or her skin-colour as a barrier to her ambition. she has a slight sense of naivete all together, despite her strong character and out-spoken values.
beatrice bridget dearborn
seventh year | gryffindor | half blood | application
user posted image
i'll twine with my mingles and raven black hair
the roses so red and the lilies so fair
[LIST]lively and spirited, beatrice is a curious and clever girl with a talent for herbology and an expertise in english gardens, weeds and flowers. she is academically inclined and draws her fanciful nature out of her more grounded curiosities. she has a mind for detail and memorisation and a great deal of patience for lengthy observation so that she sometimes needs reminding in order to expand the field of her interest or concentration to include other people or new knowledge.

beatrice is very girlish in spirit, but sometimes has difficulty relating to girls her own age, for the essential central reason that she finds motherhood and the world that accompanies it deeply unappealing (though she has no qualms with romance or marriage). due to her slightly different priorities, she can come off as vaguely eccentric, though her bright manner keeps her from being terribly alienating. she is not terribly popular, but also not terribly easy to dislike, and she is very much drawn in particular to people show share her hobbies and passions. beatrice has a straight-forward sense of humour, and dislikes sarcasm deeply, just as she dislikes flirting and being excluded.

over the last year, beatrice has made it her cause to support the resistance's overseas efforts against grindewald. she is unabashed in asking for donations for the fighting wizards from her fellow students, and also collects reusable magical materials to send to the ministry. she is direct and articulate in her cause, though would not necessarily hassle those who disagree with her. she also vaguely known for a close friendship with isaac carmichael, with whom she shares her love of plants and plant lore.

mildred alberta carpenter
nurse | ex-gryffindor | blood traitor | application
user posted image
before a world war does with us
whatever it will do

your characters might not know nurse carpenter because she has only been at hogwarts for one week. she is a new assistant in the hospital wing, hired by helbert spleen. but she's only twenty-two, so it's possible she was at school for a few years with some of the older characters.

mildred served five years as a healer to the resistance in poland, until she was hit by a curse and lost her left arm. without her wand arm mildred's ability is greatly limited, and the post of nurse in the hospital wing is the only one that was available to her. although she has made impressive progress at re-learning spells and attempting wandless magic, she is still greatly slowed by her handicap and detailed or urgent work would still be very risky for her to attempt on a patient. working at hogwarts is a distinct step down for mildred and she can be sometimes too frank in her frustration with the lack of challenge in caring for school children. that said, she is a very attentive healer and finds it easier often to relate to patients than people she meets in other capacities (including fellow staff members).

as well as suffering physical injury, mildred suffers from "combat fatigue" (now known as ptsd). she is easily startled into anxiety by loud noises, crowded spaces, fast movements or quick speech. intrusive memories and flashbacks can be caused by directly discussing details of her disfigurement or time at war. she avoids these triggers whenever possible, however it would not take long in her company to notice that she is at least almost as haunted by the war as she is desperate to return to it.

the daughter of an inconsequential pureblooded family of diagon alley shop keepers, mildred self-identifies as a blood traitor, and though her family have not openly denounced her, neither side has made attempts to communicate since her return to england. she is openly dismissive of people who express offensive points of view, and finds hate and prejudice in school children particularly disturbing.

corraaaaa. i've plotted with all your other characters, i believe. let me know if i'm missing anything. this is for beatrice.

isaac: nothing here gtfo

john: i feel like she's almost too matured in her interests for him? john doesn't really know what he's good at yet. he's very underdeveloped in that area. he might find her a little intimidating, though he'd be nothing but friendly towards her, of course. if she decides to join wizard cards, philosophy club, or quidditch, he might see her. BUT I'M GUESSING NOT. he likes telling these sort of entertaining "catch-tales" at the gryffindor table, so she might enjoy that, but other than that, idk. he's also very against grindelwald ideology, and stands up for muggleborns, but really, even now he knows he'd never fight for the cause or go as far as beatrice's aspirations. he works in smaller steps, i guess you could say.

alphard: oh god. let's not.

alastor and beatrice
    anonymously owls beatrice most of his pocket money as often as possible for obvious reasons, nbd. even though his family is completely fucked up, they're still quite old money, and so he gets quite a lot of pocket money, so he's her creepy benevolent benefactor! as it is, though, he probably couldn't handle beatrice approaching him and probably hides every time he sees her even barely in his vicinity. idk if she'd actually track him down and ask for money (she's probably not that insensitive LOL) he'd panic about it anyway. so yeah, she'd get a letter every two weeks packed with galleons and never know who it was from!

i'll come back later and spam this properly with theodore when my brain's operating |:

FOR BEATRICE.

maitaine whisp
    sigh. may and beatrice suffer from that condition known as different house, different year. may is a fifth year hufflepuff prefect. however! may is also very interested in herbology and has a nice green thumb, so they might know each other from gardening club if beatrice does that? um, she'll probably be nervous about beatrice's interest in the fight against grindelwald, since it's ~so far away and may is unfortunately rather self-centered in just about everything. um. cora why am i so bad at plotting with you anywhere except over aim?

abner yaxley
    well, they're a little closer in age but definitely further apart in house. abner wouldn't really waste his time flirting with her, since she 1) doesn't like it and 2) is a halfblood anyways, gross. um. he might talk to her about the struggle against grindelwald for all the wrong reasons and perhaps even be convinced to spare a galleon or two so it doesn't look so weird that he's constantly grilling her about what she knows about what's going on overseas? he'll probably do his best to be at least semi-friendly with her, but he can get incredibly sarcastic if he's exasperated, although i doubt she'd ever get to see the not charmingly friendly side of abner. umm. i love beatrice, have i told you that recently?

arnold peasegood
    finally! they're in the same house!! oh my gosh!! however, she doesn't associate with any of his idols, and i imagine she's the one girl in the gryffindor tower who doesn't treat arnold in a motherly fashion, which would be a HUGE change for him, lol, since just about everyone else does. except priscilla, whose flirting in exchange for homework goes straight over his poor little head. um, his best friend is her mysterious benefactor! he can't really afford to donate terribly much to the cause, but he gives what he can (lol like a sickle or two) when he can and would be absolutely thrilled and fascinated to meet with lev.

nathaniel ulby
    nate is a fourth year hufflepuff beater, so... idk? he's got vague plans to be a healer and is in the gardening club (if beatrice is, too), so maybe he could be really impressed with her ridiculous knowledge about plants and herbs? he's not really the sarcastic sort, but is rather fond of crude jokes and would probably manage to offend beatrice in about eighty different ways within a minute. so i suppose it would just depend on whether or not she would be able to look past his little shit exterior.

walburga black
    bffls, obviously.

Beatrice is delightful.

Cygnus & Amelia: Finals and bffs respectively, y/y?
Genevieve: Oh, so these two, I'm pretty sure they know each other what with both being seventh years and Gryffindors. Uhm, you know Gen, and though she's a good kid and would probably give her some of her allowance to support the cause, she's not terribly interested in the war outside - or rather, she doesn't really KNOW much about it 'cause she's never been directly affected by it, since as I understand the Weasleys are rather sheltered from it all. She'd find it admirable that Beatrice is taking her time to support this, though, and would listen should Bea ever talked to her about it. It may even pique her curiosity, but then Gen has kind of a short attention span so idk. I think she'd like it well enough and could be friendly, but whether they're actual friends or not, is totally up to Bea. I think Beatrice is like 10 times more mature than Gen, so, LOL.

ILY SORRY I DON'T HAVE MUCH FOR YOU.

thanks everyone!

isaac&beatrice
MERLIN IN HISTORY

john&beatrice
BUT I'M GUESSING NOT
ummm yeah idt she'd be in any of those clubs. she has her mind elsewhere. and i think you're right that he's not really specific enough in his interests etc to really draw her attention, though she'd have no trouble with him. she would enjoy his tales and certainly think he was amusing (probably relay them to isaac afterwards now and then), but probably they're not close. she'd come to him for donations then if she noticed his ideology, but i think would probably not be terribly caught up in an extensive conversation.

alastor&beatrice
i love this. beatrice will be grateful and very careful with his money. she will also be incredibly curious about who it is sending it. she will convince herself that knowing the benefactor's identity is the point and manage to keep her curiosity at bay, and then every so often be like (probably to isaac) "but who could it be???" and then argue herself down from wondering again. LOL this is like, often. probably weekly.
she wouldn't pester him, no, though his story might interest her. i think she might spare him a smile if she passed him and noticed, but probably not force him to pay attention to her.
but yeah just so you know, his identity plagues her. ahaha


maitaine&beatrice
i believe that beatrice will be going to gardening with isaac. she will be less destructive and distracting than isaac (and probably a more regular attender), but she is still rather more advanced, i imagine, and possibly passionate than the others and so might get a little caught up in her own interests rather than the club. LOL i KNOW that this will all drive gwen insane so the club might be a bit hilariously tense.
AND I WILL POST IT ASAP
but yeah she'd know may from there then. and think she was sweet, i imagine, but not be otherwise very well equipped in socilaising with her further.

abner&beatrice
they could definitely have interesting conversations. i don't think beatrice would ahve pursued abner's support, but would be surprised if he gave it and very willing to engage in discussion. hmm yeah she wouldn't like his less friendly side but i can't imagine why she'd witness it? definitely if he kept a facade up they could interact without hiccup - though if she ever found out, she'd take being fooled very personally.

arnolld&beatrice
absoloutely beatrice is that one girl LOL. she would not be interested in mothering him and idt it would even occur to her that it was her intention to. i think she'd think he was hilarious in a not-intentionally-mean way and definitely b kind to him, if not protective. she'll take his donations with gratitude and remind him that every bit helps. they could be quite interesting together also, i think.

nate&beatrice
yeah gardening club! LOL she would find him offensive which would be hilarious. then again, if it's at gardening and isaac's around, she'll store it to laugh with him about later alone. she'd possibly be interested in his career plans if she managed to get around to hearing them? but yeah idk - we can see how gardening club goes down i think~~~

cygnus&amelia&beatrice
yes ia

genevieve&beatrice
hm so i imagine beatrice is on friendly terms with gen/bobbie/waverly after seven years, and definitely does her best to be comfortable around other girls. she ends up coming off vaguely eccentric, i think, though this doesn't actually bother her greatly. she'll be happy for the donations and i think appreciate gen's good intentions. however, their perspectives are quite different and i can imagine that bea has never quite felt a part of that group of friends. she is more mature and though she wouldn't hold that against gen and would be delighted to talk to her, it might mean she kind of has a short attention span for her herself?

they could be like dorm-friends i think. i mean, i think beatrice has "friends" collected from the years who she's not totally always attentive to/invested in but gets along with fine, particularly with other girls? like i think earlier on, before she was friends with isaac and all, beatrice spent time with the girls in her year/house/dorm because she would have wanted to have friends and not known really what else to do. but then been not terribly close to them because they didn't have the same interests and she would go off in pursuit of her interests. if that makes sense. they might have been more like actually friends earlier on before this was apparent.


sorry this is all a bit delirious. ily all. <3

i don't think many of my characters will get along very well with beatrice and this makes me sad

zamira
    so zamira's a pal of isaac's, and i imagine she would rather refrain from mentioning the fact her family are psychopathic supporters of grindelwald in front of either of them; she doesn't agree with her parents' position at all, but she doesn't want to be put on the spot quite like that. aside from that, they have some similarities - neither are maternal and both slightly intimidated by that whole sphere. of course, zamira's fear of marriage and motherhood is all-encompassing and rather more intense than bea's fear of the latter. however, seeing as beatrice hates sarcasm and has a more girlish way to her, i can't see her enjoying z's spiky sense of humour or flimsy morals, and i can't see z being particularly endeared to her, either, though you know zamira - she rarely goes out of her way to be objectionable. so um they might have some frosty interaction through isaac

percy
    seventh year gryffindor, suppp. percy has a long and convoluted history with isaac, if my plot page is to be believed, and these days they don't get along at all. however, you know what percy's like; he's good and friendly, even if he is highly obnoxious, and i imagine she'd be used to his eccentricities after seven years? so idk i imagine they could chat and such or be friends or something. he's friends with most of seventh year gryffindor, after all.

caractacus
    same house, but i can't see beatrice approving of his stunts. also, he might have tried to date her or whatever at some point, because a year's difference means fuck all to cactus. LOL. and, naturally, he has no shame.

eldred
    blah blah blah eldred. i don't know how she'd react to him, so i'm leaving it up to you!!! aren't i nice smile.gif

lev
    nope not seein anything :/

zamira
yeah i think they should definitely know each other through isaac. beatrice is more...uncomfortable than properly afraid, probably because she has at least a few more options of escape than zamira. they'd be kind of a hilarious contrast if both were with isaac. beatrice wouldn't find zamira really very amusing at all - except to maybe laugh about to herself/possibly isaac after the fact. but her sarcasm wouldn't amuse her and she would find a little dull. but yeah i can't imagine they'd actually, like, argue, so they could just be kind of funny. beatrice wouldn't dislike her exactly, but definitely wouldn't be looking to be close to her. so good luck to isaac balancing that!!

percy
okay. just read the long history - across TWO plot pages. very epic. sooo beatrice wasn't friends with isaac until last year. so before knowing about that association, of course beatrice would have known percy anyway, seeing as they've been living close to each other for some years now. beatrice would be friendly with him, yeah, and not terribly attentive to his more obnoxious qualities anyhow. actually, she might find him quite funny, since his humour's quite straight forward and laughing at the expense of other people isn't terribly beyond her. yeah i think they could definitely be friends of a sort and enjoy each other. beatrice might not have a terrible amount of patience for all of his eccentricities in that shes rather caught up in her own, buuut they wouldn't really bug her, possibly for that reason exactly. really, she'd relate more to percy than to gen, bobbie or waverly so. and she'll definitely ask for his donations and i assume they wouldn't have disagreements about the war etc, though that's only a fairly recent passion of hers.

hmm and as he doesn't get on with isaac that could be a bit awkward. they both might end up in ravenclaw tower sometimes LOL though beatrice doesn't escape gryffindor or anything. she'd probably avoid the subject tbh and tell isaac she wasn't getting involved. if they fight in herbology class she'd be like...uninterested i the distraction. LOL

caractacus
yeah beatrice wouldn't be terribly taken with cactus. LOL he definitely tried to date her and she definitely said no. but she might, as i said, kind of appreciate that he didn't waste time flirting around and then left off once she said no. so she wouldn't object to him terribly but i think she'd be happy to leave him to his own business.

eldred
welllll i think beatrice would find eldred a little creepy. then again, she wouldn't really have anything against him or be rude to him or anything. but she wouldn't go out of her way to be kind - though possibly she finds him amusing sometimes in private in a not-entirely-kind way. beatrice isn't mean, but she's not always explicitly nice (unlike you) so they may not have really interacted a great deal. i think she'd be happy to let him get abou this business as she mostly just wants to get about hers.
i guess she probably approaches him for war donations though. so idk how he'd react to that.

lev
impossible to plot these 2 sry

may
    oh, beatrice is definitely more advanced than may, for sure (and definitely a more regular attender), since may is tbf just fond of planting pretty flowers. umm. yeah, beyond perhaps saying hello at gardening club (and may being kind of astounded by how much further you can go in herbology beyond mandrakes (or w/e)) i don't see much. ):

abner
    well, he could definitely make himself sound like the person most interested in the war effort ever if he thought he could get interesting/useful/whatever information out of beatrice for it. maybe they could note or something?

arnold
    they could definitely be interesting together, haha. especially if she didn't mother him, not receiving that sort of typical attention from a girl might put him more at ease with her, although he would definitely appreciate her kindness without condescension and even more so appreciate being told that his donations are helpful, since at this point while he's interested in the cause, he doesn't even have his owls and is quite at a loss for what to do to help beyond giving beatrice his spare pocket change.

nate
    ahahaha, i think it'll be nate attending gardening club rather than may (i don't have your boldness, to bring two characters omg). his introduction will probably be... incredibly un-charming, lol. maybe he can drop his healing aspirations there and she can just be like completely incredulous that this crass little hufflepuff boy is ever going to shape up and get enough newts for acceptance to st mungo's, haha. anyways idk. we'll see~~~~?

i've been really lazy but beatrice is beautiful and i'm finally doing this!

dangerous
    they're in the same year, and he shares a dorm with isaac. dai's world doesn't tend to extend far outside of quidditch, and he has a lot of difficulty comprehending the gravity of greater world events. that being said, he does have a passion for travel and seeing the world, and he's probably very aware of ~what's going on, but just unsure of how to deal with it given that it is so far outside of ~his world. perhaps if he read in the news about something happening in a location he'd recently visited with his step-dad he might think to track beatrice down and make a donation, more serious than he usually is because this shits real?
damocles
    despite the house and year difference i actually think that we could do something with them. damocles is not very well-informed where current events are concerned, if only because he is so invested in his own interests that he does not exactly keep up with the news. in all likelihood he is sadly misinformed about the war effort against grindelwald, and everything that is going on overseas. but if she were to ever approach him or if he spotted her trying to raise awareness of funds or anything like that it would probably pique his interest. he would gladly donate what he has, but he is terrible with managing his funds and tends to squander his pocket money almost straight after he recieves it, so he might even make a point to track her down when he had more than a few spare knuts to make a decent donation! and possibly ask her a lot of questions about the war effort. oh, he also enjoys herbology!
mulciber and josephine
    i've got nothing ):
cat
    um, well i do believe in the near future cat and lev actually wind up having quite an interesting relationship. one of her older brothers ships off to the muggle war, and it has her scared witless. she'll start acting out even more so at hogwarts, and trying to pretend that she's tough, etc etc. anyway, when she finds out that lev is fighting against grindelwald she's going to start asking him questions about ~war in general, and stuff like that. she might scrounge together as many knuts and sickles as she can and make a donation, being very gruff about it?

ALL FOR BEATRICE:

Dawlish:

Can't see much here, he's vulgar and younger and rude and if she ever came sniffing around for donations he'd tell her to get lost.

Antonin:

Creeeeeep creeeeeeeeeep

Elaina:

Is probably a little conflicted about the war. Her Pureblood status and slight prejudice would make her lean towards sympathies with the big bad, but killing them all off seems a little extreme to her and makes her uneasy to think about that sort of cleansing. ANYWAYS, all this to say Beatrice's dedication would make her uncomfortable and introspective in a way she wouldn't appreciate. Also she would think Beatrice is really beautiful and that's beyond awkward for her.

Victoria:

Probably has little fondness for her - is slightly resentful of the Wizarding world's disconnect from the huge, devastating Muggle war that's going on and should Beatrice ever come sniffing around not only would she make it clear that she was dirt poor but that if she did have money it would be going to the war her father was fighting in. BASICALLY she might try to make Beatrice uncomfortable as she considers the girl's single-minded campaigning for only one war unfair.

Helbert:

Helps with finding places to send the donations? He probably has connections with medic wizards and witches in the war and would be glad to help. I think he'll also organize a weekly event in which they prepare medical kits for the soldiers. He'd really appreciate Beatrice's determination and consider her not unlike Isaac - who he really likes as well.

FOR BEATRICE

rudolf
same year and same house. LOL, i think beatrice would likely be annoyed by him because he's, you know, rudolf. he's misogynistic and arrogant and flirtatious, which don't exactly go in his favor. also he is currently RAGINGGGG against isaac carmichael because the latter makes cutting remarks during their shared comc project together, fgjskfg. and at some point, she is free to find out about how ridiculously he is leading the coalition, which i'm sure is just MORE POINTS TOWARD HOW AWESOME RUDOLF BRAND IS TO BEATRICE.

vitelle
could be friends!!!!! vitelle is kinda detached and dreamy to the point where she's not fully in tune with the outside world, and this includes the war going on. of course, she'd be more than happy to support the cause given beatrice prompting her in any manner. like beatrice, she is very lively and outspoken, and would certainly not find her none-maternal ideas strange.

betty
same house, so they've probably seen of each other at least. i doooon't think beatrice would much like betty at all, since she's such a bitch about everything, LOL. but after the dawlish-getting-petrified-situation, she gets something of a wakeup call and becomes a more serious journalist - so in the future, she'd extend her help with reporting news of the war as well as of the petrifications. SO that could be an interesting development.

willy
sfgsfjk she needs to find out about the hoax or pester them more about it, idek

elaina
yeah so they'd probably not be extensively in contact. beatrice wouldn't be prone to being terribly observant of her discomfort and though she may have asked for support from her in the past, she wouldn't push it now. she isn't exactly righteous enough to fight losing battles.

victoria
i don't think that beatrice knows a GREAT deal about the muggle war. she would be sympathetic to it if it was explained properly to her and i think even quite interested, but she wouldn't have patience for or enjoy vicky's reaction to her and her efforts. she'd probably find vicky frustrating and definitely wouldn't hassle her after she figured out she'd be unsuccessful. they could have an interesting confrontation about the two wars though, which could be cool.

helbert
never replied here but totally took this suggestion. i think that beatrice came to him for advice on where to send the money and was hoping he might have set her up with the more reliable contact she has now
she would admire him very much, though idt they're as connected as isaac and helbert are. she will regularly attend his events and support them entirely.
also she'll be really annoyed later in the year bc isaac won't mention the mandrake thing to her. and then when he finally does, i think she'll come help, but be annoyed with him and the two of them can argue in the hospital wing, amidst petrified children. :| LOL

abner
i'd like that! trying to think of what the "spark of connection" might be. but that will come to me. haha. yeah we can totally note!

arnold
interesting layer is that i think to some extend beatrice is going to try to find out about and get specific information about the coalition later in the year. haven't ironed this out but my undersatnding is this will not be easy for her since she's trying to get to rudolf. possibly there would be interaction with arnold through that.
and she'll be extremely disappointed and irritated when it turns out to just be this fraternity and rudolf's behind it LOL
buuut prior to that
yeah defintely i think that's very interesting. she won't mother him certainly and she'd appreciate his manner (though she might find him a bit...high energy so she might sometimes find him amusing, behind his back - but not purposefully unkindly). and she'll appreciate his change smile.gif

nate
LOL love him at gardening club. yeah we'll see. maybe they'll connect again afterwards.

dangerous
beatrice might like dai, i think, if they got talking, though quidditch isn't really her world enough to notice him entirely in her day-to-day. she'd definitely be receptive if they got talking and i think think he was quite friendly and interesting. she'd definitely appreciate his money and his attention to the situation. so they could definitely have that interaction at some point and we could see where it led.

damocles
i like this a lot. i think beatrice was the same about current events until her sixth year - she's definitely like that about almost everything else (more attentive to her own interests than to the greater world). i think that bea would respect damocles and his clever friends quite a bit, and definitely recognise his intelligence. i think damocles would be the sort of person who would be able to distract beatrice's attention for periods of time definitely. beatrice is i think slightly eccentric enough that she'd actually get on very well with someone slightly less of a ~popular sort, like damocles, but also kind of "normal" enough that she wouldn't have seen him as an initial candidate for a close friend. if that makes sense. but i think by now they'd definitely get on, even if they're not close close. she'd appreciate his donations and questions and i think they'd have quite interesting involved conversations. also, she is quite good at potions and might have dropped by potions club now and then - and more regularly when she was younger. and they can talk about herbology. so actually, yeah they can definitely be friends of a sort, which we can maybe figure out a little more in detail.

cat
beatrice would probably find cat and her friends a little annoying atm, for their toughness and pretension to rudeness. but it would be interesting to see that turn around when cat goes through that whole thing. she's not TERRIBLY mothering so though she'd understand that cat was upset, she wouldn't be incredibly overtly sympathetic - but she would take her donations and be interested that cat was interested in lev. she wouldnt push the gruff attitude or take it terribly badly. she doesn't like to be responsible for other people, really. they could have a kind of interesting dynamic also, once that starts up, so i think we should definitely do something with it.


rudolf
okay have been jabbering at you about this. atm, beatrice would probably think rudolf was kind of hilarious, though not in a terribly kind way. she wouldn't be outright rude to him or even that concerned about him, and she wouldn't really care what he and his friends got up to, as long as they didn't bug her. but she wouldn't find him terribly impressive. it's possible she crushed on him when she was younger cause she fallsf or boys quite easily and not always entirely compatible boys to her, but i think she'd be quite past that now.

anyway, yeah, she will try to discover who's behind the coalition byw ay of um joining his recruits with isaac. :| and be extremely disappointed when she finds out it's nothing like what she hoped it might be. sooo there can defs be drama there and probably/definitely hilarity.

vitelle
i like them a lot as friends. i think bea would like vitelle and vitelle is interesting enough to definitely distract her. beatrice doesn't necessarily expect people to be as committed as her, but just sort of generally in that direction. i think they'd be really nice together/as friends. definitely agree.

betty
yeah betty would be the sort of girl that bea would feel really different from. she wouldn't really be interested enough to engage with betty with her bitchiness etc, but she wouldn't be terribly interested in being sweet to her, if she picked up on it. i think she'd mostly be a bit uncomfortable with betty if they talked and probably just sort of casually ignore her. but yeah it would be really interesting as betty got more serious - they might actually get on then. beatrice is going to eventually help with the mandrakes (once isaac lets her in on it), so she'll end up around the hospital wing/spleen and stuff - which is a connection also. i'd like that. ind of good for beatrice because she can be kind of judgmental of people, so it's good for her to have a perspective change.

willy
YEAHHH we need to figure this out also!!!


SORRY THIS IS A MILLION YEARS LATE

before a world war does with us
whatever it will do

your characters might not know nurse carpenter because she has only been at hogwarts for one week. she is a new assistant in the hospital wing, hired by helbert spleen. but she's only twenty-two, so it's possible she was at school for a few years with some of the older characters.

mildred served five years as a healer to the resistance in poland, until she was hit by a curse and lost her left arm. without her wand arm mildred's ability is greatly limited, and the post of nurse in the hospital wing is the only one that was available to her. although she has made impressive progress at re-learning spells and attempting wandless magic, she is still greatly slowed by her handicap and detailed or urgent work would still be very risky for her to attempt on a patient. working at hogwarts is a distinct step down for mildred and she can be sometimes too frank in her frustration with the lack of challenge in caring for school children. that said, she is a very attentive healer and finds it easier often to relate to patients than people she meets in other capacities (including fellow staff members).

as well as suffering physical injury, mildred suffers from "combat fatigue" (now known as ptsd). she is easily startled into anxiety by loud noises, crowded spaces, fast movements or quick speech. intrusive memories and flashbacks can be caused by directly discussing details of her disfigurement or time at war. she avoids these triggers whenever possible, however it would not take long in her company to notice that she is at least almost as haunted by the war as she is desperate to return to it.

the daughter of an inconsequential pureblooded family of diagon alley shop keepers, mildred self-identifies as a blood traitor, and though her family have not openly denounced her, neither side has made attempts to communicate since her return to england. she is openly dismissive of people who express offensive points of view, and finds hate and prejudice in school children particularly disturbing.

ALL FOR MILDRED

Uhm okay I feel like Darren would really like her / be respectful / solemn and generally just unobtrusive . I am planning on him getting seriously injured in one of the matches idek which but you know it'll be later on either way. I imagine he trusts millie much more than helbert because he just generally is wary of men so maybe something could happen with that? I don't know.


Edmund!
in and out a lot due heavily to his alcoholism and desire to beat the shit out of things. UHM yeah I imagine she's just like god desist but I think edmund has some deep psychological issues that just are not going to be resolved by someone telling him to cut it the fuck out. do what you will with that.


Dorcas:
Uh yeah I don't even know how mildred would react to dorcas, probably just like /sigh/ just lioke everyone else lalala


Aloysius is never in the hospital wing.


Shrimp!
is in and out a lot due mostly to his own stupidity though later will eat some purple plant and permenantly turn lavendar, he will be devestated and will refuse to leave the hospital wing. He's charming and really considerate of other people's emotions so maybe mildred will take pity on him and let him hide in spleen's office when other people come in.
