My RPG wish list
I probably should have made this before the holidays, but with the hecticness of the season I completely forgot. Ah well.
I'm writing this to ask a very special gift to my flist: new holds in the three games I'm in. If said holds are strongly connected to my characters, the gift is even more special, for obvious reasons.
Felix Felicis (felixmods) My cosy little PSL. It's set ten years in the past (in other words, 2005 has just began) and is a quiet place where you can move in characters you've enjoyed playing in the past and whose story you still wish to develop. Both canon and OC characters are welcome, from both Hogwarts and the other canon schools are welcome. Yes, that includes Mahoutokoro too, even if there's no character from that school yet.
Jemima "Jem" Bletchley. She'll be a former Ravenclaw in her early twenties, and pretty close to her big brother Miles, who still calls her "midget", and to his pet garden gnome, whom she called Tibbles. The PB is up to you, though special kudos if you can find a girl who looks like she's related to Gregory Smith.
Marcus Flint. He plays in the Falmouth Falcons with Miles Bletchley and Demelza Robins and has a sister, Allegra, in game. Marcus isn't pleased that Allegra is living with Cormac McLaggen without them being married, especially since they've started having babies together. We've been NPCing Marcus with Henry Cavill as his PB, but you're free to pick someone else if you want.
Unnamed Falmouth Falcons seeker. This guy is like a Bludger magnet, as he keeps getting hit on the head. Is dating the Newman to Miles' Jerry, Barbara With the Big Breasts from Bristol (also available).
A potential future girlfriend for Miles. In other games I've played him he marries Alicia Spinnet, but in this one sadly Alicia died in the Battle of Hogwarts. He's had dates before, but wouldn't mind something more serious.
Alan, Daniel and Rachel Cooper. Siblings of Leah Cooper and cousins of the Weasleys (their mother is a Prewett), each Cooper child was sorted to a different house. Alan was Cormac McLaggen's dormmate and works as a broomstick designer, Daniel is a former Slytherin and shares a flat with Leah (whom he drives crazy), and Rachel was the first year Michael Corner unchained in DH (she's just finished school now). PBs are up to you, though it's been mentioned in game that Dan has red hair like Leah and the Weasleys while Alan and Rachel have mousy hair. ETA: Alison suggests this girl as a possible PB for Rachel.
Gertie Goyle. Gregory Goyle's baby sister, Hufflepuff class of 2004. She's as clever as Greg is dumb, and after the war they ended up looking after each other, as their DE father died in the Battle and their mother was committed in St Mungo's. Her PB as an NPC child in DH-era games has been Abigail Breslin in Little Miss Sunshine, but it's up to you whom you pick for her as a grown-up.
Rolf Scamander. My Luna hasn't really met him yet (apart from when she attended one of his lectures some time ago) so it would be fun to play their interaction from a different perspective, as I usually play the Rolf/Luna romance from his POV.
Urquhart. Scottish, former Slytherin Quidditch captain (HBP), he's cousin of the McLaggens (their mothers are sisters of Tiberius Ogden), Abigail Runcorn (also daughter of one of the Ogden sisters) and Su Li (her mother is the sister of Urquhart's father). He was probably a bit weirded out when Declan married Su, though it should be noted that they're both related to him, but not to each other.
Cornelia "Neely" Ogden. Slytherin, class of 2003, daughter of Tiberius Ogden (and therefore cousin of Urquhart, Abigail Runcorn and the McLaggens) and heiress of the firewhiskey company of the same name. Has claimed Declan as her favourite cousin since she was little.
Myron and Phoebe Wagtail. Older siblings of Zoe Wagtail, current manager of Flourish and Blotts (owned by their father). Phoebe plays flute in an orchestra, and Myron, of course, is the lead singer of the Weird Sisters. Zoe has been under the influence of a love potion for quite some time now, so it would be interesting to see her siblings' reaction to it.
Fourteen Shades (ftshadesmods) A multi-era game. The premise is simple: people are transported to a village outside of time and space, where they're assigned a place to live and a job, and try to deal with the insanity of interacting with people like Hufflepuff or Grindelwald, or the unexpected random weirdness the magic of the place occasionally throws their way.
More children and school-age teens. Come on, what's not to love about the idea of having Helga Hufflepuff and Remus Lupin teaching you?
Alicia Spinnet. Miles comes from around the time he hexed her eyebrows in OotP, and while he's been told about having a son in the future he still doesn't know Alicia is the mother (or that they also have two daughters) so it's going to be a shock - probably for both, depending of when she comes from.
Jemima "Jem" Bletchley. Miles' baby sister, Ravenclaw class of 2001. They're very close in spite of their age difference and Miles misses her like crazy. She can come from any time period, though he'd much rather she'd remain younger than him, as he still hasn't gotten used to the idea of their cousin (Mike Corner) now being older and going all bossypants worried dad on him.
Gertie Goyle. Greg's baby sister, Hufflepuff, class of 2004. Gertie is Greg's favouritest person in the whole world and he misses her. Even though she's younger, he looks up to her because she's so much smarter than he'll ever be.
The Year Above (yearabovemod) This is probably the most ambitious project I was ever involved in. The idea is for people to play the Hogwarts class of 1997 for ten years, from their first year at Hogwarts to after the war, and see them develop and grow as time advances. It's still Year 1, so the kids are learning about the school and making friends, which is rather fun. Year 2, of course, will introduce the canon events, which I don't want to miss.
More dormmates. We have a few holds, but it would be nice to see them in action. Miles has had the Slytherin boys' dorm all to himself (so to speak) and is being insufferable because of it.
Richie Coote, Marietta Edgecombe, Stebbins, Cadwallader, Amit Singh (or any other name you might wish to give to your character is canon allows it). Those are the currently available slots. Come and get them!
