Creon Ageptus. Marie Comtois

Biography: (300 words minimum.)
Adelaide was born in 1893 and grew up in pre war France. Her father was a high ranking official in the French Ministry, and her mother, Penelope, was a  socialite and home maker who was born in Belgium. They lived in a period of abundance for the French nation; with the muggles having colonized much of Asia and Africa, it was a time of relative harmony between the two civilizations. As a mark of good will, Adelaide was even allowed on a trip to Indochine and French Algeria when she was between the ages of nine and ten years old.

Adelaide attended the local academy between the ages of eleven and seventeen; she took her OWL equivalency in her sixth year, and managed to score four O's (In Transfiguration, Potions, Divination and History) and three A's (in DADA, charms and Herbology) while she received an E on her Astronomy, Ancient Runes and Arithmancy exams. 

For her NEWT year, she chose to drop astronomy. In her final exam she received O’s in Transfiguration, DADA, Ancient Runes and Potions. She received an E in charms, Divination, History and Arithmancy.

Prior to her marriage, she worked as a nurse at a French wizardry hospital, before briefly transferring to St. Mungo’s in her mid twenties. At the age of twenty seven, and at the urging of her parents, she married Orestres Ageptus. Though initially unhappy with married life, the new bride eventually gained joy from the birth of a daughter, Persephone, about a year into their marriage. The tragic loss of the child a few months after her birth, however, put a strain on the marriage that would not be lifted until the birth of their son Creon some two years later.

Though a part of her wished to return to her nursing career, Adelaide decided soon after the birth of her son to devote her time to motherhood. In this vain, she raised Creon in a very person manner that was unusual at that time. She even went to the step of clearing her schedule of non vital society events in order to nurture and care for him. This was in a stark contrast to her husband, who had taken somewhat to a more traditional style of parenting. She would often play with her son at every available opportunity, and took to reading him stories before bed.

This gentle mother son relationship was slightly disrupted in 1936, following the birth of her granddaughter Marie. Though little could ever estrange her from her son, she was nonetheless left disappointed at the fact that the couple had conceived a child out of wedlock. Eventually, however, she forgave her son and sought to provide the best possible future for Marie as she grew up; this feeling never quite extended to the child’s mother, who was often left at the whim of the elder woman and her wealthy husband. In the end, an agreement was made to provide the woman with small home which the couple would pay for. Adelaide and her husband nonetheless maintained the right to evict Isabel at any time.

Following the loss of her husband, Adelaide maintained her villa in Normandy and was given a London townhouse by her son. She now runs a shop in Diagon Ally.

Option One -
Amelia Nixon was many things, but she was never a pushover reporter that people could just usher away with a busy shuffle past. She was dedicated and eager to cut to the very middle of the current political tensions because she was Amelia Nixon and her articles would most certainly become front page material.

“Sir, please! It’s for the Prophet, how do you feel-“

Another one brushed passed her, the shuffling busy masses making their way through Diagon Alley for the lunchtime rush. This had been the best possible time to get people, but none of them were giving her anything to go with.

Only momentarily discouraged, the short red headed lady took a seat on a nearby bench. Her quill resting in her left hand and her notepad ready in the opposite hand. Amelia pouted, tapping the quill against her leg as she scanned the waves of people for somebody - anybody - who looked like they had something to say.

She had been dreaming of her name in bold print, Amelia Nixon: The Source of Today’s Tomorrow. She had been dreaming of the larger office and the secretaries that would fetch her the morning coffee and fetch her anything she needed. The VIP interviews and the most exclusive press passes. But all Amelia had was a page seventeen piece on the rising number of frogs in London.

Hardened by a day of no success, the reporter stood up and started to trod off down the alley. A loose stone on the cobble path caught her heel, sending the distraught girl toppling down to the ground.

“Merlin’s fog watch, my heel is broken! Help!” she yelled as she tried desperately to recover her shoe frantically in the middle of the Diagon Alley moving crowds.

Adelaide smiled; the poor woman seemed to be in a panic, and a part of her couldn’t help but sympathize with her. For a few minutes, she did little more than look around and see if someone, indeed anyone, would help the younger woman.

 When no one appeared, she sighed and pulled out her wand.

“No one has any manners anymore.” She said, sighing as she pointed the wand at the shoe and said “Accio shoe”

It took some time for the shoe to come to her, yet when it did she walked over to the woman with the shoe in hand.

“Here you are” Adelaide said “Nothing to worry about”

Hi Adelaide!

Thanks for making the change Caly requested! However, I noticed one more small problem with your application. In the levels section, the application form specifies:

Quote
The number of levels on the lowest ability must be at least half of the highest ability.

Adelaide's lowest abilities are at 5 and your highest is at 12. To have a Transfiguration level of 12, your lowest abilities would need to be at least at 6. You could either put more points into Divination and Summoning or move a single point from Transfiguration to another ability.

Once you've made those changes, please repost your entire revised application and we'll give it another look.

Os saltimbancos

Some may call them artists, others may call them scroundels - a few may even say those are the same thing. by all means, a merry gang of daring urchins has recently been terrorizing [and more than once entertaining] the streets of London. Brought together by circumstance, this tight-knit bunch is ready to take over the world - together and with a laugh.

Stop and get marveled - but, please, watch your pockets.




The clown
15|muggleborn|fabian gamba


Arlan Walsh is a problem. A rebel. A prankster. And also the charmest charmer to ever charm on this earth, who has very little in matters of morals. Cunning and witty, he is the kind of person who could to convince a beggar to give up his very last galleon. Once upon a time, he was part of a very dysfunctional family, once upon a time, he was a prime a example of what a Hogwarts students wasn't supposed to be - all this is in the past, for now he fancies the post of leader for this merry band.

That is, when he is not too busy being a smitten fool for Sylvia Grace. status:open



The nightingale
15|pureblood|madeline ford


Sylvia Grace is slumming - plain and simple. Born into an influent, traditional, old-fashioned family, this young lady became bored about her privileged life style and left evrything for an adventure. Beautiful and spoiled, she's having the time of her life. Regardless, Sylvia's voice is truly something to behold. status:open




The Acrobat
14|halfblood|cameron boyce


status:taken



The Contortionist
12|squib|marina nery


status:taken




The Snake enchanter
9|halfblood|august maturo


Orpheus, the youngest Cíprio sibling, was barely seven when a night fire took away his  parents. Now, at age 9, he is a very shy, loving child - albeit he does seem a bit more friendly with reptiles than the common rabble. He is usually the one holding the galleon-canister while the older kids perform - also, if the fact he pretends to be blind influences the patrons to give an extra coin or two, well, what can be done about it?
status:open
observation: needs special request for Parseltongue.



The Ballarina
14|halfblood|Aiyana Lewis


Calliope Atlas is a flower born amidst cold concrete. Ever since she can remember, Knockturn has been her home and some even say her mother was one of the night ladies moonlighting at the Moulin Rouge - the veracity of such a fact is uncertain, as her own memories of the are blotched by time. Quick on her feet and with a joyous nature, she's the life of the party.

Hi, Adelaide!

Your application looks good, there’s just one thing we’ll need to clarify before we can get you accepted.

You mention that you wish to have a connection with The Aetherius and then in your biography that Adelaide runs a shop in Diagon Alley. The Aetherius is a player-owned shop, meaning that it is ultimately up to the owner (Tessa Anderssen) whether or not Adelaide will be able to work there.

If you mean for Adelaide to be running a different shop, that’s totally fine — if you could edit out the requested connection to The Aetherius, this would resolve any confusion. You can also submit a shop permit so that Adelaide can have her own shop. More information and the shop application template can be found here. If you wish for her to be an employee of The Aetherius, you must receive permission from the owner first, and note this permission in your revised application.

Once you have made the required change, please repost your entire revised application below, and we’ll be more than happy to take another look. Please feel free to PM me with any questions. Thanks!

Biography: (300 words minimum.)
Adelaide was born in 1893 and grew up in pre war France. Her father was a high ranking official in the French Ministry, and her mother, Penelope, was a  socialite and home maker who was born in Belgium. They lived in a period of abundance for the French nation; with the muggles having colonized much of Asia and Africa, it was a time of relative harmony between the two civilizations. As a mark of good will, Adelaide was even allowed on a trip to Indochine and French Algeria when she was between the ages of nine and ten years old.

Adelaide attended the local academy between the ages of eleven and seventeen; she took her OWL equivalency in her sixth year, and managed to score four O's (In Transfiguration, Potions, Divination and History) and three A's (in DADA, charms and Herbology) while she received an E on her Astronomy, Ancient Runes and Arithmancy exams. 

For her NEWT year, she chose to drop astronomy. In her final exam she received O’s in Transfiguration, DADA, Ancient Runes and Potions. She received an E in charms, Divination, History and Arithmancy.

Prior to her marriage, she worked as a nurse at a French wizardry hospital, before briefly transferring to St. Mungo’s in her mid twenties. At the age of twenty seven, and at the urging of her parents, she married Orestres Ageptus. Though initially unhappy with married life, the new bride eventually gained joy from the birth of a daughter, Persephone, about a year into their marriage. The tragic loss of the child a few months after her birth, however, put a strain on the marriage that would not be lifted until the birth of their son Creon some two years later.

Though a part of her wished to return to her nursing career, Adelaide decided soon after the birth of her son to devote her time to motherhood. In this vain, she raised Creon in a very person manner that was unusual at that time. She even went to the step of clearing her schedule of non vital society events in order to nurture and care for him. This was in a stark contrast to her husband, who had taken somewhat to a more traditional style of parenting. She would often play with her son at every available opportunity, and took to reading him stories before bed.

This gentle mother son relationship was slightly disrupted in 1936, following the birth of her granddaughter Marie. Though little could ever estrange her from her son, she was nonetheless left disappointed at the fact that the couple had conceived a child out of wedlock. Eventually, however, she forgave her son and sought to provide the best possible future for Marie as she grew up; this feeling never quite extended to the child’s mother, who was often left at the whim of the elder woman and her wealthy husband. In the end, an agreement was made to provide the woman with small home which the couple would pay for. Adelaide and her husband nonetheless maintained the right to evict Isabel at any time.

Following the loss of her husband, Adelaide maintained her villa in Normandy and was given a London townhouse by her son. She now runs a shop in Diagon Ally.

Roleplay: 
You come across one of these posts on the site. Please select one & reply as your character:

Option One -
Amelia Nixon was many things, but she was never a pushover reporter that people could just usher away with a busy shuffle past. She was dedicated and eager to cut to the very middle of the current political tensions because she was Amelia Nixon and her articles would most certainly become front page material.

“Sir, please! It’s for the Prophet, how do you feel-“

Another one brushed passed her, the shuffling busy masses making their way through Diagon Alley for the lunchtime rush. This had been the best possible time to get people, but none of them were giving her anything to go with.

Only momentarily discouraged, the short red headed lady took a seat on a nearby bench. Her quill resting in her left hand and her notepad ready in the opposite hand. Amelia pouted, tapping the quill against her leg as she scanned the waves of people for somebody - anybody - who looked like they had something to say.

She had been dreaming of her name in bold print, Amelia Nixon: The Source of Today’s Tomorrow. She had been dreaming of the larger office and the secretaries that would fetch her the morning coffee and fetch her anything she needed. The VIP interviews and the most exclusive press passes. But all Amelia had was a page seventeen piece on the rising number of frogs in London.

Hardened by a day of no success, the reporter stood up and started to trod off down the alley. A loose stone on the cobble path caught her heel, sending the distraught girl toppling down to the ground.

“Merlin’s fog watch, my heel is broken! Help!” she yelled as she tried desperately to recover her shoe frantically in the middle of the Diagon Alley moving crowds.

Adelaide smiled; the poor woman seemed to be in a panic, and a part of her couldn’t help but sympathize with her. For a few minutes, she did little more than look around and see if someone, indeed anyone, would help the younger woman.

 When no one appeared, she sighed and pulled out her wand.

“No one has any manners anymore.” She said, sighing as she pointed the wand at the shoe and said “Accio shoe”

It took some time for the shoe to come to her, yet when it did she walked over to the woman with the shoe in hand.

“Here you are” Adelaide said “Nothing to worry about”

SHOPKEEPER PERMIT
You must have applied as an Elsewhere character before completing this permit.


Shop name: Punchline - 'Magical Goods for the Mischievous Mind’
Shop Type: A mercantile of goods (shop)
Location: Hogsmeade

Subforum? Yes - Gringots points

Short Description (50 words max): With a Neon moving sign, a narrow shop down a side alleyway is adorned with colourful displays in the small window spaces. Goods in circus like packaging sit never quietly. One of the smallest, yet well stocked Joke shops in Britain.


Long Description (200 words min): Punchline sits between two larger shops, cramped behind one latticed bay window, which like the rest of the shop is colourfully decorated with whistling lollipops and singing trinkets of all shapes and sizes. A hanging sign above the door, retrofitted with glowing muggle neon lights reads ‘PUNCHLINE: Magical Goods for the Mischievous Mind’.

The shop upon entering is warmer than outside. The shelves along every corner of the wall (only separated for advertising spaces filled with moving and unmoving posters alike advertising current specials or new products) are stocked with a wide arrange of goods categorised by use: Edibles, Explodables, Fake Gifts, Get-aways and Trinkets. Flying overhead are several enchanted figurines playing a new game of quidditch each day, the goals positioned just above a staircase one might not notice if not for the action.

A cramped counter at the end of the shop is stacked with several slowly spinning jars of one use edible pranks and candies. ‘Puking Pumpkin Pastries’, ‘Forget me Fudge’, ‘Muddled Marshmellows’ and more, each individually wrapped for consumption. Usually a dark haired man tends to the counter, tinkering, an apron that reads a joke without a punchline awaiting to be studied.

The second tier of the shop while offering a view of the rooftops of other shops has many more muggle goods, homemade products for magical care and muggle toys all enchanted for entertainment. These goods are not for pranking, genuine care has gone into each set of objects. A train set that builds the track for you, teddy bears that can hold small conversations back and a wide range of living dinosaur and dragon plastic goods. The final small amount of open space is left for a makeshift workshop – currently taped off with signage reading when the next ‘lessons’ are to take place.

What purpose will this shop serve other than selling things and being the home of your character? Why would people want to RP there just for fun?

PUNCHLINE Pranks and Goods is a unique store in the British community. Selling not just prank items but helpful goods for any other inventor, alchemist or showman. There are plenty of fun, creative ready to use items for children including fake wands, prank candies, exploding glitter bombs, talking toothbrushes and more with seasonal goods coming and going as the inventory swaps through invention periods.

I thought it would be interesting to have a shop that was very (on surface level) targeted to students and the child in us all.

These goods can be sued against other students, in class or for practical purposes if one looks to the allocated shelf of ‘homestead’ goods. Following on that, Punchline will also supply goods over summer at discounted prices and prove in-house workshops to learn how to make your own simple toys which I will create a termly thread for if there is interest.
