PAST:

In the heart of Oxford, the Bowmans lived a quiet and pensive life, surrounded by towers of books that lined every room of the small townhouse. The young couple never needed grandeur or adventure, content to live out their lives as professors of philosophy in the well renowned Oxford University and spend most evenings in deep conversation or deep thought depending on how the mood struck them. A child never factored into their original plan, but after five blissful years of quiet married life, they found themselves pregnant with their first child, a dark eyed boy with a longing for a way of life his parents could not offer him. Felicity’s brother was a reckless and volatile child long before Felicity was born, finding ways to disrupt the quiet of his home at all hours. The Bowmans were not equipped to handle such a child, so they fell back on the one thing they did know how to do well: live existentially. They adapted a parenting style that allowed their young boy to do whatever he wanted, whenever he wanted in the hopes that he would teach learn his own limits. He embarrassed them at university functions and wrecked havoc in the neighborhood, but the Bowmans stood by their parenting method and told friends and colleagues they were conducting a philosophical experiment. Wishing for a child who she could relate to, Felicity’s mother begged her husband to have another child, this time a little girl light eyes and a quiet, relaxed disposition that closely resembled her mother’s. Felicity instantly took to the quiet atmosphere of the university town and often begged her mother to take her to the university, if only so she could spend hours roaming the large library. Felicity and her mother became inseparable, spending weekends walking around the park and reflecting on the beauty of nature and spending evenings with her mother reading philosophical essays and Felicity listening intently. Felicity was the child that suited the Bowmans perfectly, but she was not the apple of her whole family’s eye.

It did not take long for Felicity’s brother to realize that Felicity was the favorite child, born to make up for all the things he was not. He detested Felicity and did not hesitate to make his feelings known. Whenever their parents left the house and went somewhere the children could not follow, he would tease Felicity mercilessly, often until she was near tears. Young Felicity could not understand why her brother hated her and saw it fight to bully her as if it was the only reason he was put on this earth. In her eyes, they were both parented in the same way, allowed to act in whatever way they saw fit and learn to be individuals. While her brother choose to act out, Felicity prefered a quieter lifestyle, but she never thought to criticize her brother for all the ways he was different from her. But as she grew older, Felicity began to see the attention that her parents paid to her far exceeded the attention they paid to her brother. It was that realization that sparked Felicity’s interest in discovering why people did the things that they did, believing it would make her a more empathetic and understanding person. Had she been only a muggle, perhaps Felicity would have become a psychologist, but life handed her a different path. On her eleventh birthday, an owl arrived at the Bowman home inviting Felicity to attend Hogwarts. Though her parents were shocked by the news that their daughter was a witch, they had raised Felicity to make her own decisions and supported Felicity when she decided to attend. Her newfound magical powers only fueled her brother’s hatred for her, but Felicity had long since forgiven him for the way he treated her for most of their lives. Though she did not hold out much hope they would ever reconcile, Felicity left for Hogwarts with the hope that it would give her new perspective and her brother a chance to bond with their parents. Sorted into Ravenclaw, Felicity felt right at home among the eagles, seeing her new classmates and her house as an extension of her home in Oxford, While Felicity continues to focus her time on philosophy and psychology, she has also taken a keen interest in History of Magic and she does not intend to leave the wizarding world so soon after graduating.

PERSONALITY:

Philosophy is deeply rooted in Felicity’s being and it shows every time she opens her mouth. Her friends often joke that Felicity does not know how to live in the moment, she only knows how to live outside of it, analyzing and debating the repercussions of every action and reaction. A simple charms essay by any other student’s standards often turns into a twelve page paper that discusses how a certain charm could and has changed the human condition for Felicity. Though her philosophical musings are never dull, they are often lengthy and time consuming and those around her wish Felicity would stop thinking and start living. When Felicity does take a break from her own mind, she reveals herself to be a very easy going and secure young woman who does her best to get along with students of all houses and personalities. After spending eleven years with carefree parents and a volatile older brother, very little shocks or fazes Felicity, which makes it easy for her to forgive and forget while letting any insults that come her way roll off her shoulders. While she is empathetic and encouraging, Felicity makes it a point never to give advice. Felicity would never try to force her opinions on to others or encourage her peers to act or behave a certain way, a trait she picked up from her parents. She believes first and foremost in freedom of expression and a person’s right to set their own limits. While Felicity may prefer spending a great deal of time in the library, she would never admonish anyone who avoided doing schoolwork if that is the path they choose from themselves. Some argue that Felicity encourages bad habits, but Felicity simply believes that a life molded by the standards of those around you is a life that is not your own.

PAST:

Everyone who associated themselves with the Mardock family viewed them as kind and intelligent people with a touch of eccentricity. That was to be expected from a family that took pride in their genius and each Mardock child was brought up to achieve the same level of intelligence as the rest of the family. No one felt this pressure more than Neil. The first child born to a Ravenclaw mother that worked as an Oblivator and a certified muggle genius father that taught at a highly renowned university, Neil was expected to excel in both magic and muggle subjects such as math and science. For the first few years of schooling, the work did not overwhelm him and Neil often came home with shining letters from his teachers about his progress and dedication to his studies. It was when the work grew harder that Neil began to realize the natural intelligence his parents had was not handed down to him. Neil had to study for hours at a time to receive grades that were only satisfactory, not exampolary. While his younger sister spent the day running outside and making up childish stories, Neil spent every minute he could solving math equations and reading science textbooks, fearful of what his grades would look like if he did not. Neil knew how proud his parents were of their son who they believed was a genius and he feared disappointing them if he ever admitted to his struggles. All he could do was silently count down the days until his eleventh birthday when his letter from Hogwarts arrived, hoping that the magical world was where his true gifts lay.

The day finally arrived and Neil did not hide his excitement at the prospect of leaving his muggle school and attending Hogwarts. His parents found the excitement odd and his father even took Neil aside and asked if he was sure that a life in the wizarding world was what he wanted. In the eyes of his parents, Neil was excelling in muggle school and it could be in his best interest to stay in the muggle world and follow in his father’s footsteps. Only Neil knew the truth and it took all the powers of persuasion he possessed to convince his parents that Hogwarts was the right choice for him. His parents relented and Neil boarded the Hogwarts Express with hope that Hogwarts would provide a fresh start and better opportunity for him to reach his full potential, potential that the Mardock family could be proud of. But Neil knew that he had to be sorted into Ravenclaw or leaving the muggle world would have all been for nothing. Though in the months leading up to his arrival Neil confidently assured his family the Hat would not even have to be placed on his head to know he belonged in Ravenclaw, he secretly feared that the Sorting Hat would have other plans for him. Sure enough, the Hat selected Hufflepuff as the house most suited for him, but Neil quietly begged for Ravenclaw. Seeing his desperation, the Hat acted out of sympathy and placed Neil in Ravenclaw, though uncertainty remained. Neil sought to prove himself among the eagles, but history was bound to repeat itself. Though Neil had a successful first year, he began struggling again as the years went on until only his excessive studying habits kept him afloat. Too embarrassed to ask for help, Neil struggled in silence, all the while denying himself the one thing he could have been truly great at. Though Madame Hooch urged him back in first year to keep up flying and train  for the quidditch team, Neil shied away in fear of what his parents would say if they found their son dedicating all his time to quidditch instead of his classes. Instead, Neil spent six years watching the team from afar, acting only as announcer at the quidditch matches and feeling only regret.

PERSONALITY:

Many people joke that Neil should take up residency in the common room of Ravenclaw Tower, since he is the first there in the morning and the last person to leave at night. Rarely will Neil be without two books open in front of him and pages of parchment surrounding his work space. The label always given to Neil is overachiever, with his nose always stuck in a book and his hand seemingly attached to his quill, but his housemates and many outside of Ravenclaw know that once drawn away from school work, Neil has far more to offer than tutoring hours. Neil is a reliable and trustworthy companion with a wide smile and an endless need to make others around him feel happy. Humble and selfless to a fault, Neil is often confused for a Hufflepuff when his blue tie is not in plain view, but speaking of that fact will always cause a shift in Neil’s mood and he will retreat back to his fortress of textbooks. Neil knows all too well that Hufflepuff was the best fit for him, but his need to please his parents and continue the long line of Mardock geniuses outweighed his own happiness. Neil does love his housemates in Ravenclaw, though he always feels two steps behind the pack in classes and that is why he feels the need to study late into the night while neglecting his true passion. While Neil may wish to be a genius when it comes charms or potions, his true genius lies on the quidditch pitch and this brings him more shame than it does pride. Neil can only assume that dreams of being a professional quidditch player would be considered childish and unrealistic by his parents, so he shies away from the pitch and remains adamant that being a healer is his lifelong dream. Despite his best efforts to stay away from quidditch and keep to the library, Neil sneaks out to the quidditch pitch when he can be sure no one is around to see him and he acts as announcer at all the quidditch matches, showing a great deal of enthusiasm that he passes off as part of the job. It is not difficult to see through Neil’s facade of indifference and many people have tried to push Neil towards quidditch, all failing to convince their friend that his happiness matters more than a family legacy.

After a night of dancing and pleasant conversation, the Minister’s Ball was called to a close by a round of applause for the Minister with some celebratory fireworks released over the grounds. Though close to midnight, the Minister - along with his auror bodyguards - all said farewell to the students and professors and left through the grounds, before disapparating once beyond the gates. All students were promptly ushered to their dorms by the prefects with tea and biscuits sent to the common rooms for those still feeling excited and buzzed from the busy night. With no injuries or strange occurrences to report, professors and students alike have deemed the Minister’s Ball a success - one of only a few that Hogwarts can lay claim to for that year.

The event has now officially ended - both admins would like to thank everyone for participating, and especially to those involved in plot drops over the course of the weekend. A post will be made tomorrow with links to all plot drops and summaries of what was discussed in each in case anyone missed them. No new starters or paras from the event should be made or started, though all players are welcome to continue replying to the threads currently active in order to see them through. Normal starters and paras may also now resume, including discussions on the Minister and his aurors. The Hogwarts aurors have not yet returned to the castle, though come Sunday morning in canon, they’re back on patrol in the grounds and around the castle as though nothing had happened. If you have any questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to message us - and thank you again to everyone for such a wonderful event!

The Minister of Magic arrived at Hogwarts in the afternoon to much whispering and frenzied excitement from the students — a carriage pulled up at the gates and, emerging from within, came several people. Aurors, dressed in dark robes, surrounded a tall, lean man with sharp, piercing blue eyes and a wide smile — who met with Headmistress McGonagall and shook her hand warmly. Whatever the students thought of Lowell Tegus, Minister of Magic, was put on hold as they dressed and entered the Great Hall for the feast in his honor. McGonagall made an opening speech, thanking the Minister for coming to Hogwarts and wishing him success and longevity in the position, while Lowell - sitting at the teacher’s table in a seat of honor - bowed his head humbly. It wasn’t until the plates had all been cleared away that Lowell spoke himself, standing up before the students dressed in rich, perfectly pressed dress robes to address the school.

"It feels like only yesterday that I was here myself, sitting where you are now," he said, looking around the room, which is no longer divided into house tables but into smaller round tables seating 20. "And that’s how I know that speeches are not going to win me any favors from you, because I used to sigh a little too loudly every time someone stood up to deliver one." There are a few scattered chuckles at the joke, though some look too nervous to speak. "But I wanted to take this opportunity to talk to you, face to face, and reassure each and every one of you that I, as Minister of Magic, am going to do everything in my power to make sure that Hogwarts is protected, now, and in the future. Education is key to producing witches and wizards who uphold the strong traditions of our wizarding kind, without whom our very existence is threatened. I believe in a wizarding world that doesn’t cower or shrink back from all that it’s capable of, and I want to be the one to push us to achieve our utmost - but no success can come without failure or pain." Lowell, whose voice is ringing out to the crowd, clearly has a knack for speaking, and students are enraptured by his words, especially the younger years. "Yet the fear of failure or pain should not stop us from trying — we should never be scared of learning from our mistakes, because each and every one of them is a stepping stone to something potentially bigger. My time as Minister of Magic will be pushing toward this future: fearlessly striving toward the next stage of wizarding kind, and I hope everyone here will be there beside me."

Stepping down to applause from the students, McGonagall stepped up and thanked the Minister for his words before asking all students to stand. While the chords of the school song rose up and everyone joined in, the dining tables disappeared, along with the chairs, and the Great Hall transformed from a feast to a ball by the end of the song. Music of a different kind - more modern, less toads - started, and against one wall appeared a food table with drinks, including butterbeer for years four and up. Tables were set down in one corner, along with chairs, for anyone who didn’t feel like dancing, though that is what the majority of the floor was established as: wide open spaces with lanterns bobbing along overhead by magic, giving the darkness of the Great Hall some light until the room was almost glowing ethereally. With music ranging from the modern kind - where dance moves were everyone for themselves - to more structured songs requiring partners, the ball in honor of the Minister officially begins. Spread across the Great Hall are the Minister’s aurors, keen eyes always watching, while the aurors that the students are familiar with are nowhere in sight. Professors join in on the dance floor, and even Lowell himself can be seen asking McGonagall for a dance and leading the way in a slow waltz.

The Minister’s Ball event has officially begun! As of now, all players are able to participate — starters are welcome, and you should continue to use the olstartertag for them. Gif chats, mini paras, and paras are all encouraged, as is music posts or fashion posts for your character’s outfit for the night; if there are any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us. Any further updates on the Minister’s Ball will be made as the event progresses — if you want any interactions with professors, aurors, or Lowell, please message and we will work something out for your character and your NPC of choice. Happy roleplaying!

By coincidence or not, the aurors of Hogwarts appear to have left the castle around lunchtime on Saturday, no longer roaming the halls or the grounds for the first time in months. There is an uneasy feeling: though no students really wanted them there, not having them there feels strange and almost vulnerable. But then Lowell’s team arrives, and with him comes a small entourage of aurors dressed in dark robes and even darker eyes. Lowell himself {FC: Matt Bomer} is center among them, walking into the castle confidently, surrounded by the following aurors:

  • FC Michael Fassbender, always keeping to Lowell’s elbow and moving gracefully.
  • FC Natalie Dormer, her eyes seemingly everywhere.
  • FC Evangeline Lilly, walking with confidence and her hand always on her wand.
  • FC Idris Elba, whose physical presence alone is intimidating.
  • FC Joseph Morgan, who keeps to Lowell’s other elbow, glancing around suspiciously and with a scowl in place.
  • FC Lucy Liu, who walks as though she’s entering Honeydukes and this is a normal occasion.

These aurors are the school’s protection - as well as Lowell’s - for the night; they aren’t familiar with the students like the other aurors are, and will therefore be less tolerant of misbehavior when conducted in their general presence. All students are advised to tread carefully around these newcomers, who take Lowell’s safety very seriously and performed a sweep of the school to make sure there were no dangers present. Despite the important occasion, the regular aurors of Hogwarts are not seen all night.

You are cordially invited to attend Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry’s traditional feast and ball in honor of the newly elected Minister of Magic, Lowell Tegus {FC: Matt Bomer}.

Who: All students are required to attend the feast and ball.

When: This event takes place beginning at 5pm EST on Friday, the 22nd of August and will end 12am PST on Sunday, the 24th of August. In canon, it will take place on Saturday night, beginning with the feast at 7pm and the ball commencing at 9pm.

Where: the Great Hall.

Requirements: all students are required to dress for the occasion, whether it be their dress robes or other formal, muggle attire {such as suits and gowns.}

The Minister will be spending the evening with students from Hogwarts, escorted by several aurors for his - and our - protection. Best behavior is required from all students in attendance, and any misconduct will be met with punishments in the form of detentions and loss of house points. No alcohol or other substances are permitted on the night, even by students who are of legal age. Professors will be on hand all night to monitor students and ensure that they are putting their best foot forward by representing Hogwarts with dignity and respect toward the new Minister of Magic.

PAST:

Raised as the only child of single mother Annabelle Priddy, Clementine had learned from an early age to fend for herself. The first several years of her life were fairly pleasant, her Nanna taking care of her on the afternoons her mother had to work extra shifts to help keep up with the rent. Clementine’s Nanna took her under her wing, letting her watch countless films to pass the time to let her escape; it became a nightly ritual for several years that went well into the early years of her education. Her Nanna had taught her more things in those early years than her mother ever has - she had learned how to read music, play guitar, bake small treats and even the basics of ballet. This secure, comfortable relationship was quickly ripped away from her, however, when her Nanna passed away suddenly when she was six and a half. The loss for Clementine was huge, who was now lacking a stable and loving role model. She grew unsettled at school causing fights and getting bullied when strange things happened around her when she got emotional. The loss for her mother was covered with a slew of hideous one-night-stands and the occasional aggressive boyfriend. While Annabelle had enough sense to leave the toxic relationships, the constant bounce from house to house left Clementine unsettled and unable to trust anyone, the relationship with her mother becoming stressful and frayed. The only escape Clementine found was through film and movie scores that she enjoyed while cooped up in her room with some babysitter looking after the house as her mother slaved over two jobs to continue to make ends meet.

Annabelle and Clementine were each at the end of their tether by the time the young girl left primary school, but when an elderly woman with a pointy hat turned up at their doorstep and presented them with a letter from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, it was a breath of much needed fresh air for them both. Although a little skeptical at first, Clementine saw the school as more of an escape than anything, the idea of boarding daunting, but one she was willing to put up with. As for her mother, she was more than happy to send her away for someone else to deal with.

PERSONALITY:

While the first number of months at Hogwarts took some getting used to, Clem has grown appreciative of the time it gives her away from her family. Her time at school granted her some release, but her rocky childhood had given her a prickly personality that was closed-off and was paired off with a mouth full of snark. A little outspoken and forever a trouble-maker, Clem caused havoc in the classes she found difficult or didn’t understand, but worked hard and breezed with ease through the lessons she came to love - namely, Defence Against the Dark Arts.

As she grew older, her tough exterior and mature, pretty face gave her an extra edge as she picked up the “Live Fast, Die Young” mentality; hanging out at parties, trying to live without regrets before creeping into her dorm in the late morning wearing the same clothes as the previous night. She was afraid of growing old, not wanting the same fate as her Nanna and leaving the world when someone depended on her most, so she quickly decided to cut her loses and go out swinging. Her attitude towards classes became more lax, forever forgetting to do homework or to turn in assignments where it wasn’t particularly needed - she didn’t see the point in putting the time and effort into a subject she didn’t enjoy when she could rather be using the extra time to do what she enjoyed. Unsure about her future after Hogwarts, Clem has considered attending W.A.D.A. to pursue directing or even trying out as a beater for the Holyhead Harpies, although seeing the Aurors in action about the school has piqued her interest to work in some form of magical defense. Though she is relatively social, pleasurable company with Clem can sometimes be hard to come by as the air of confidence she keeps around her can often be cocky or intimidating, but is simply a forced result of her rocky past and need to fend for herself. She is, however, considered a good friend by those who can call her as such. Seeming somewhat reckless and a little sarcastic or unpleasant on the outside, the love and good natured treatment shared by her Nanna still lie beneath the surface, and with a little care and persistence, might just break through.

PAST:

Tucked away on the country’s coast is the Lowdry family, consisting of Wren’s two mothers and his younger two sisters. Their house sits on the beach where the sound of waves can be heard rolling in and out all day - the same beach where Wren learned to surf on dismal waves before his mother used magic to make them a little bigger as his skill grew. While not the most conventional of families, the Lowdry clan are close knit - Wren was their first child and the light of their lives for many years before the twins came along, but even then, Wren always held a special place as ‘their boy.’ It never seemed weird or unusual to Wren that he had two mothers - both witches - or that he didn’t have a father; even at a young age, he was aware that his family was different to others, but no less loving, and he never felt as though he were missing something. His mothers were warm-hearted women who doted on Wren: every afternoon after school, he’d be at the beach learning to surf in the shallow, knee-high waves that rolled in, often toppling over one of his mother’s in the process who were trying to hold him up. But after trying and failing many times, eventually Wren learned how to surf - and by the age of nine, he was out riding waves with the best of them, fearlessly tackling any that came his way. Surfing was important to Wren - it became not just a sport or a hobby, but a way of life; it was his way to get away from the feeling of alienation that magic made him feel among his muggle friends. When he was sitting on his board off-shore, it was easy for Wren to imagine that there wasn’t some looming castle on the horizon of his future waiting to take him away from his parents and change him forever. But despite his best efforts to stay with his moms, Wren’s magical heritage shone through time and time again in small ways - a few objects hovering an inch off their surfaces when he laughed during family movie night or his surf board somehow always finding its way to his side after he came off. While Wren was proud of his mother’s magical abilities, he worried about life away from them - and life away from the surf; but when his Hogwarts letter arrived, there was no longer any way that he could deny who he was, and that was a wizard.

Hogwarts was a completely new experience to Wren, and he walked into the school with a lot of stories and ideas instilled in him by his mothers about what it was like. Having grown up there two decades ago, his mothers told him in very plain terms about the homophobic kind of environment that had been prominent and which had made them feel as though they’d had to hide their relationship as teenagers. Actively asking the Sorting Hat to place him in Slytherin, which was one of his mother’s old house, he made a promise to start changing things from the inside out. However, he was surprised to learn that the homophobic, suffocating environment that his mothers had painted for him was no longer the reality that existed, especially on his second day when he saw two older boys kissing in a courtyard. Though this derailed Wren’s immediate plans, over the years he’s learned which areas of Hogwarts life need to be brought to the attention of other’s and help in any way that he can. Wren is outspoken and extremely political: it isn’t unusual to find him hanging outside professors’ offices, burning with questions and ideas about how to help people within the school, whether it be in regards to sexuality or gender, racial minorities, or even promoting the welfare of magical creatures that Hagrid brings into the school. Wren’s mothers - and younger sisters - are both extremely proud of him and are frequently owling him with pictures of the beach or their adventures along the coast. While Wren struggles with being away from the beach, he savors the time he is allowed to surf in the summers, and has found that quidditch is a decent way to fill in the hole that surfing has left within him. He sees flying as an escape and a way to clear his thoughts, and while he isn’t the best at quidditch, Wren is always up for a friendly game with his friends when he isn’t too busy pasting posters over the school promoting an informal club meeting of sorts.

PERSONALITY:

Wren is unlike all of his fellow Slytherins in that he has no care for house loyalty or unity - while he is friends with Slytherins and does care about them, he doesn’t prioritize them over others from different houses. To Wren, everyone is equal and equally deserving of respect, and he wakes up every day trying to spread this mentality to others. He’s come a long way from being the scared, nervous boy surfing to avoid his problems - while he does still worry that he isn’t the best wizard, he sees himself as perfectly positioned to make changes within the wizarding world, and he isn’t going to pass it up. Wren is more happy to be working on equal and awareness projects than school work, which can often lead him to poor grades, but it isn’t for lack of intelligence - it’s just misplaced. For those luckily enough to earn it, Wren’s friendship is magnetic and warm; he is loyal to his friends and would do anything for them - he is particularly cautious of people’s identities and won’t hesitate to ask for a person’s preferred pronouns upon meeting them. While Wren’s actions might be annoying to some, he feels it is a courtesy that all should extend to strangers, and is never deterred by those who roll their eyes or sigh when replying for the second time that week. Wren takes social justice issues very seriously and with a fiery determination that makes him perfectly placed in Slytherin house while still earning him some dislike from those who feel as though he is too superficial. Wren prefers not to talk about his own feelings or problems - they always take a backseat when he has a new cause, and it’s only when he’s flying or surfing that he realises how much he was holding onto. Positive and with an optimistic outlook on life, Wren is a great conversationalist and knowledgeable on many topics - he isn’t afraid to get out among the people and talk to them about the things he’s passionate about.
