Elsewhere Accepted / Lilac Tree Greenhouse | Shop Permit
« on: 13/11/2017 at 03:06 »
SHOPKEEPER PERMIT
You must have applied as an Elsewhere character before completing this permit.

Shop name: Lilac Tree Greenhouse
Shop Type: Plant Shop
Location: Hogsmeade / Diagon Alley / Knockturn Alley / London
Subforum? Yes! Purchased with Gringotts points, approved by Calypso Ross on 11/11/17.

Short Description (50 words max): A purveyor of seasonal plants and other botanical needs.
Long Description (200 words min): Externally, Lilac Tree Greenhouse is a humbly sized structure set away from the main rows of shops in Hogsmeade. It is a greenhouse devoid of any variance from the norm, with the exception of the lack of a ceiling and the tree that emerges from the open top. Despite the obstruction, the greenhouse is a naturally warm and bright place. There seems to be some sort of magical barrier on the greenhouse to keep the weather out, though the barrier will dissipate to allow for the occasional rain storm. At the front of the greenhouse ‘Lilac Tree Greenhouse’ is painted to the left of the door in large but unobtrusive pale purple lettering. Attached to the door is a piece of parchment displaying the shop’s hours in the same script as the painted sign.

Within the greenhouse it is quiet, if one listens closely they might hear the sounds of a world beyond the glass. A gentle forest breeze, a rustle of whispering trees, scatterings of bird song. At the greenhouse’s center, surrounded by a ring of lilac bushes is a massive weeping willow. It’s branches are low enough to climb (if one asks nicely) but most will find they can only ascend to a certain point before the closest branch will move just too far out of reach for them to climb further. Mavis is the only one able to climb to the top, along with anyone she breaks the charm for. Hidden among the branches and leaves is a small tree house, home to Mavis’ office space and the smaller, weaker plants.

Seasonal flora and other plants are displayed on long, curved, wooden tables that circle the ring of lilac bushes. At the back of the greenhouse is a small table that serves as a makeshift desk for check outs and related things. There are wooden chairs scattered about the rows, though they become the home of a lucky plant more often than not.

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?

The goal of the shop is to appear a world away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. After Mavis’s disastrous stint at St. Mungo’s, she left the hospital with visions of spring and the decision to create a paradise of glass and flora -- and open it up to the world. She has spent too long wandering London’s concrete, too long among the hectic nature of urban life, where there is no time to sit among the flowers, to experience the sunlight and simply be. Step into the Lilac Tree, and even if it is for but a moment, you are stepping into nature.

I also feel that there are several possible RP opportunities that could arise from the Greenhouse. Some of my own ideas included student internships or part time jobs for students. Because of the shop’s location it could be a useful resource for Herbology classes, students looking for plants for class work, etc., or simply serve as a quiet place someone to escape the hectic nature of life for a time. It could also be incorporated into the Social Reconstruction Committee as a permanent setting for the Garden Club if it were to be revived. I’ve also thought of some assorted events that could occur throughout the year (A Christmas tree sale for instance) that characters could participate in. Mavis would also be willing to supply plants to weddings, galas, etc.

I'm having some trouble figuring out who the human who's face I'm using actually is. Any tips on how to find the identity of my face? That sounds so weird......

Also do you need to reapply a character in order to play them agin a year higher?

Biography:
Mavis was born to Jacob and Elizabeth Lerner. Her childhood was a fairly normal one, aside from magic. Her father was a wizard so to Mavis wands and Qudditch were completely normal. This changed one day when she was eight, when she unknowingly asked a Muggle man which Qudditch team he supported. The man was confused and lectured her bewildered mother for sometime about not allowing Mavis to believe in some imaginary sport and if this keeps up, she may want to take Mavis for psychiatric evaluation. Her mother later explained to her the concept of Muggles not knowing about the wizarding world and never to talk about magic with Muggles. The expireiance made her shy around Muggles and she kept to herself whenever she was out in the Muggle world.
Her older brother Mark never went to Hogwarts full time. When Mark was eleven he contracted spattergriot only a few days before his first term. The disease left him weak and sickly. He was able to complete his second and third years at Hogwarts before Mavis's parents took him out completely due to his failing health. He continued his education at home; taught by his parents. When Mavis received her Hogwarts letter, Mark told her jokingly not to get sick. Mavis felt almost guilty about going off to Hogwarts and leaving her brother at home. She spent much of her time with Mark, Helping him with his studies or just keeping him company when he was ill. She had never been without him or her parents for very long and was scared about being away from them. When she went to Diagon Ally to buy her supplies for school, Mark bought her an owl as a present. He told her that with an owl they would be able to write often so it would feel like he was there with her. She named the owl Mavik, A combination of both her own and her brothers names.

→ SAMPLE ROLEPLAY
Option 2
“Oh, come now!"
Mavis groaned softly and kept running. She was not in the mood to talk to the invasive reporter. The entire school didn't need to hear  some ridiculous lie about her. She heard foot steps approaching her and she sped up, rounding another corridor and bolting up the stairs.
What she really was scared of was the reporter finding out that she was the one that had spilled a potion that had turned the whole dungeon floor a sick shade a maroon. It had been insanely embarrassing and she had tried her best to make sure no one found out about the incident. Behind her she heard The girl panting and shouting something about frog legs. Mavis sprinted even faster now, glancing around her for somewhere to hide. When she made for the next corridor she tripped on a rise in the floor and fell flat on her face. She heard the reporter's panting even louder now and when Mavis stood up again, the blonde reporter was right in front of her.
“What do you think about serving frog legs at lunch? Some say it’s a delicacy, but others think it’s plain gross.”
Mavis stared at the reporter and decided just to answer the question. She was out of breath from running and had twisted her ankle in the fall.
"Having frog legs at lunch would be horrid." She eyed the quill nervously, hoping that it had decide not to juice up her simple answer.
