Shop Permits / Rosewright Books || shop permit.
« Last post by Dacian Ellwood-Luxe on 14/09/2018 at 20:56 »
SHOPKEEPER PERMIT

Shop name: Rosewright Books
Shop Type: A bookshop.
Location: On the border of Wizarding and Muggle London.
Subforum? not yet!!

Short Description (50 words max): Specializing in unusual and used books, with impressive sections dedicated to Divination, as well as Muggle instances of "Magick." Be sure to pet the cat.
Long Description (200 words min): Quiet, well-stocked, and just off the beaten path, Rosewright Books is your destination if you're after a place to browse and explore: the books you find here are not your normal popular fare, and the shop requires exploration to be fully appreciated. The interior is windy and rambling, and seems to be much bigger inside than the shopfront would suggest, especially to any eagle-eyed Witch or Wizard who happens to stray into Muggle London. The shop boasts an impressive collection of rare books about unusual forms of Divination, as well as natural Muggle forms of "Magick," and encourages customers to to hole up and stay awhile by way of couches and armchairs, which can be found hidden in every room of the shop. If you're lucky, you'll catch a glimpse of Oscar, the skinny black shop cat, occupying one of these armchairs.

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? A bookshop is a lovely place to run into friends by chance, have an adorable meet-cute, or find the elusive Mysterious Tome you've been searching for. It can also be a relaxing meeting-place for dates and reunions.

SHOPKEEPER PERMIT

Shop name: The Aetherius
Shop Type: Pagan witchcraft shop/Psychic centre + PI Office
Location: Diagon Alley
Subforum? Yes! Purchased with Gringotts points and approved by Calypso Ross on 11/5/18

Short Description (50 words max): The leading supplier of tarot cards, herbs, crystals, and all the materials needed for traditional witchcraft. The top floor doubles as a place for psychic readings, and a PI office.
Long Description (200 words min): The Aetherius is situated roughly along the middle of Diagon Alley, set between two other shops. The building is tall and thin, extending several metres above the other shops in Diagon Alley, with multiple windows set in the white-washed façade. An aluminium pentacle hangs between the two sloping sides of the gable, at the very top of the building's façade.

A perpetually-burning bushel of white sage hangs over the entrance,  and cleanses any entering witch or wizard. The interior itself is well-lit; the exposed brick walls and high white-painted ceilings bounce the sunlight around the space and create a bright, welcoming interior. The floor is in a state of organised chaos, with numerous surfaces placed haphazardly around the space and covered in items. There is a corner dedicated to crystals of all colours, shapes and sizes; one wall is completely covered in various dreamcatchers and other spiritual symbols. Different decks of tarot cards find their home on a bookshelf in the corner, and in front of the window lies a display case full of bushels of herbs. But this is only a sliver of the items that The Aetherius stocks.

At the very back of the room, a wrought-iron spiral staircase ascends to the top floor of the building, where the floor is curiously empty, save for a rectangular table with several sets of chairs. This room is dimly lit, and a single oil burner distributes the scent of peppermint around the room. This is where Tessa conducts her medium-sessions; where she communes with spirits and reads tarot, amongst other services someone might require.

A small office is set off to the side, partitioned off by a set of wooden panels, and this space serves as Tessa's office-- the place where she keeps files on her cases and findings. Anyone who has not been given permission by Tessa to enter will not be able to find the entrance.

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?

When I conceptualised the Aetherius, I wanted to provide a place where traditional/ritual witchcraft supplies could be bought as no such place existed on the site as of yet. I also conceptualised the shop as a place where Tessa could conduct various psychic readings and continue her work as a PI, opening the avenue for thread opportunities.

I think the shop might be a fun place for characters to get lost in, especially if they're into ritualistic witchcraft, and I'd love to explore this avenue of magic more with other characters. The Social Reconstruction Committee and/or Hogwarts Students might find worth in the apprenticeships that Tessa's willing to offer; and there will most likely be a close line of communication between the Auror Department at the Ministry of Magic and Tessa (given her PI work).

Gender: Female

Age: Sixteen

Bloodline:
Pureblood/Halfblood/Muggleborn/Squib

Parents/Guardians (Are they currently played characters?): 
Carlos and Sofía Dahlia

Residence:
Madrid, Spain

Do you plan to have a connection to a particular existing place (for example: the daycare)?
Just Hogwarts

Do you wish to be approved as a group with any other characters? If so who and for what IC reason?
No

Please list any other characters you already have at the site:
Zo & Co

Biography: (100 words minimum.)
The Dahlia family is well-known throughout the wealthier parts of Spain. Once upon a time, the mere utterance of their name could shake a person to their core. That was, of course, during Carlos Senior’s reign of the family business. Carlos Junior held a firm hand, but not as firm to make those quiver and fear him. Instead, he opted for respect above all, for his entire family. His wife mirrored his expectations, especially when it came to raising their only child.

Carlos had not been pleased at first, knowing he had created a daughter. But over time, he molded her into a perfect representation of the Dahlia family. Gracelynn had exceeded all of his expectations, in and outside of Hogwarts; poised, elegant, and obedient. She had the grace of her mother, and business smarts of her father. Though quiet, the girl should not be mistaken for daft or innocent.

It’s always the quiet ones you’ve got to watch out for.


Roleplay:
Reply as your character to the following:

Godric Park.

Overhead, the sky was a crisp blue, for once clear of the ever-pervasive spongy clouds and rain. The sun was a lemony-yellow presence, high in the Eastern sky, and in front of it zipped three broomsticks in a straight line, or something very like one. One... two..... three... the boys passed, their shouts of excitement echoing as they chased the snitch, a tiny shimmer reflecting the sunlight.

Far below was another, much smaller broomstick.

It trugged along the ground, hugging close to it like a sluggish choo choo train and occasionally shuttering in protest. This was because said stick was currently being occupied by a very small girl who was tugging upward on the front of it with all her might, trying to coax it into doing what it had been expressly designed NOT to do.

"John, I said wait up!" The tiny girl squealed, giving the broomstick another tug.

Begrudgingly, it drifted upward a foot, and then sank, depositing the troublesome girl safely on the ground. Janey Hurst was not pleased. In a huff, she hopped off the toy safety broom, grabbing it firmly and thrusting it handle first into the turf.

Her brother was such a beast. He NEVER let her play! She folded her arms, seething blue eyes fixing on another figure nearby.  "You!" She barked, much more sharply than she meant to.

"...Do you want to play?"

Roleplay Response:
Another tedious day of shopping with Mother. The sun trickled warm against her skin, a breeze sending tendrils upward. Silence fell between them as the pair seemed to glide down the concrete. Warm honey dripped down to the children playing among one another. The corners of her mouth pulled upwards as they continued through the grass.

Turning to face forward, the brunette kept her chin down slightly, avoiding the gaze of those who passed. Boots clicked along the way, their destination a mere hundred feet away, but quick movements out of her peripheral caused a slight turn of her cheek. A soft yell brought her to stop in her tracks. A little girl walked closer to where Gracie stood, never minding her mother putting more distance between the pair.

"Do you want to play?"

"I.." she trailed off, casting as glance to the narrowing figure. "I probably shouldn't.."

But, who needed to shop anyways?

Adults & Children / Re: Application- Emma
« Last post by Anneka Ivanova on 11/09/2018 at 00:18 »
Thank you for your application! Before we can take a look at it, I'm going to have to ask you to change your name.

Per our rules:
Quote
Please do not take names or characters directly from other books, series or movies and apply as them here. Also do not apply as a celebrity or real person. We are a roleplaying site interested in your original characters, not reinterpretations of pre-existing and copyrighted ones.

Emma Swan is from the television series, Once Upon a Time, so you cannot have that name here. You don't have to create a new account to change it, though. Just fill out a helpdesk ticket and we'll change it for you.

Once you've done that, we can look at your application.

Adults & Children / Application- Emma
« Last post by Emma Swan-Jones on 07/09/2018 at 20:13 »
CHARACTER INFORMATION
Character Name- Emma Jones

Gender- Female

Age- 11

Bloodline- Halfblood

Parents/Guardians (Are they currently played characters?)- Adalia and Ethan could both see already that Emma was going to be a very hyperactive child. From a very young age, she was already practically bouncing off the walls. Emma absolutely loved anything that she could chew on, and was very big on the idea of drooling. Even though she was a handful to keep track of, Ethan and Adalia were both just glad they could share the joy of raising a child together. Nothing could compare to the joy they felt when they looked at her tender face. They thought she was the cutest baby in history!

When Emma grew a little bit older, strange things started happening. For example, when she was very young, Emma got enraged at the fact that her mother was not letting her do whatever she wanted, so the rug folded up suddenly, causing her mother to trip. Adalia and Ethan already knew what this meant; she was becoming magical. They were excited for this, but, it was expected. Emma was a very upbeat child with many, many things to talk about. She was very bubbly and random. Growing up, Emma was a bit spoiled, as she was an only child. She always had the finest of things, and this trained her to accept no less. Ethan and Adalia realized that they had to begin to be more strict on their child if they did not want her growing into someone that that knew she would not be otherwise. They cut off privileges when she acted up, and this made sure that she was not too little miss prissy. Emma grew into a warm, caring, loving child. She was exactly like Adalia and Ethan had intended her to be. She was also very sweet and helpful. This phase only lasted for about a year, though. She came back with a personality stronger than ever. She was bold, brave, and bright. Often times, she would refuse things, and most of the time she would get punished and up doing them anyway. She was growing into a very brave little girl.

Emma would often find herself getting into trouble or creating a ruckus, whether it be playing a prank on one of her parents or just simply disobeying. They could never get her to cooperate, at least not that easy. She would cooperate at times, but often, it was not of her own free will. She was a rebellious child, for the most part. There would be times where she would become more calm and collected if there was something in it for her, as she could be a little bit selfish as a child.

Residence- Maine

Do you plan to have a connection to a particular existing place (for example: the daycare)?- Hogsmeade.

Do you wish to be approved as a group with any other characters? If so who and for what IC reason?- n/a.

Please list any other characters you already have at the site- n/a.

Biography: (100 words minimum.)- As stated, her eyes are a very bright blue, if not almost gray. She has thick, blonde hair which is silky soft. Her hair is extremely wavy. Some would even say it is curly. She loves her hair and continuously plays with it. She loves to put on makeup, not because she does not like the way she looks, but because she thinks it is fun to experiment with it.

Emma has a slender build, although she has a healthy amount of curves for her age. Her bust is a bit larger than average, but not so much that it draws attention. Her jawline is noticeably out there. She has clear skin with little blemishes, even though she is definitely not perfect. Her cheeks are only the slightest bit chubby, making the rest of her facial features look smaller. She is very pale despite her attempts to be tan. Her lips are especially thick, although she would like them to be a bit thinner. Her teeth are big, white, and straight. She has very good dental hygiene. She has got a heart shaped face with a long, skinny nose. She has a long neck and very defined collar bones, which she is proud of. She has little, pointy ears although they are typically hidden by her hair.

Her legs are slightly longer than her torso, although she believes this is an advantage. The bottom portion of her legs is a little bit longer than the top part, making her thighs the tiniest bit thicker. Her arms are a little bit short, much to her dismay. She has small, dainty hands with longish fingers. She likes to keep her nails long and in good shape, or it drives her crazy having to look at them. Because she keeps her body in good shape, her stomach is remarkably flat. Emma is proud of the condition that she keeps her body in.

"...Do you want to play?"

Roleplay Response- She loved Godric park.  She looked up at the sky and said to herself, "Wow this is gonna be a beautiful day."  She then looked up and saw the quidditch players doing what they did best- playing quidditch.

Then she saw the broomstick.

She watched it drag along with the little steam engine.  Then she saw the little girl.  Why would she do this?

She was trying to catch up to her brother.  She ran up to them.  She said, "Do you guys need help?"

The girl stood up and nodded.  "Is ithat a toy broom?  You should think of getting a new one, Jane."

She just wanted to play... Why was her brother so selfish?
