Yo, I'm Static. I'm your friendly neighborhood dragon/admin, if you didn't know. Anyway, these are my want ads. I have some rules for them, but I really like writing with new people and don't mean to intimidate anyone with the rules - I'm a lot less strict and demanding than they make me sound.
Rule 1. Once you make the character, they are your character. You're in charge of their plot and creation, they are your baby. That said, they are still my want ads and so you shouldn't go drastically changing them without talking to me. If it makes sense, you're good to do it, but I still have a right to know.
Rule 2. I really love plotting, so if you want to make a want ad of mine, you're going to have to talk to me about them more than just writing the app and showing me. I want to be able to know the character you're making without reading their app, I want to be able to tell by talking to you that you're excited about the char and know what you're doing with them. I promise I'm super talkative!
Rule 3. If I get the feeling that you aren't going to play the character how I envisioned them (which is a pretty open idea for the most part), I will revoke the right to make them.
Rule 4. Not really a rule, but if you hover over the images on each tab, you'll find a list of content warnings that will come into play for each character. Please only play what you're comfortable with.
I post really slow. Like, people say that, and then there's me. I rarely reply before a thread gets archived. Sometimes it takes me multiple months. If this will bother you, I understand and please find someone to write with who won't bother you.
The half-brother of Adalynn Clark, who I plan to bring back as a character provided slots allow, Jayden is also the cousin of Willa and Oliver Taylor, the son of their muggle-born uncle. Jayden is a legitimate child of Marcus Taylor and his wife/life partner/ex, and the full brother of Veronica Taylor. He does not know about his illegitimate half-sister, who may be older or younger than him... yet. This is a very open character.
The things that are set in stone: Jayden must have had two parents capable of having biological children with one another who were in a committed, exclusive relationship at the very least until he and his sister were both born. Jayden and Veronica are not twins; I'm flexible about both of their ages, about who is younger and who is older and by how much, but they are not twins. Both Jayden and Veronica are magic. Jayden is the half-sibling of Adalynn Clark, and the cousin of Willa Taylor. Max age is 16 (5th year). I will have a say on who plays both siblings, even if one gets taken, this is still my want ad as well as whomever takes the first of the pair.
Things that are open to the player (or to whoever takes Veronica, whichever comes first): Age, name (surname must be Taylor, anything else goes), race (father is mostly white, mother can be any race or nationality), face claim, Hogwarts house, whether the mother is magic, personality, gender (though if cis female, I recommend looking at Veronica who is basically exactly this want ad, but cis female).
Lucas de Vymont was the first of three children. The age gap between him and Freddy is only a couple years, but despite that, Lucas always took the role of the big brother. Frederick was more small and fragile than others his age, and when Talia was born, Lucas fit right in place protecting the both of them. He couldn't protect Freddy from lycanthropy, though.
In the wake of Freddy's medical expenses and increased leave time, his parents discovered that they were spending a lot more money than they remembered, and Lucas's gambling addiction was discovered. When he didn't stop, he was cut off. He still has debts, and he still can't stop, so with nothing else he can do, he's been asking his little brother for money.
Freddy's baby sister, Talia and Frederick were always close when they were kids. In the years after Lucas went to school before Freddy did, he spent a great deal of time with Tali, and he was always keen to talk to her or teach her. While teenagers tend to struggle with mentorship, Frederick's willingness to learn from her as well allowed them to stay close even as they grew older. Then change came knocking in the form of a werewolf who bit Freddy. As her older brother has pulled away from everyone, including her, it's hard to say whether Talia and Frederick's relationship has been damaged or not. It has certainly changed, but perhaps not irreparably.
The oldest of the Jaeger siblings, Dietrich slowly took over family matters as his mother had a hunting accident and his much more lenient father closed himself off from the world. He became determined to make his family great, and by that he means pure, powerful, and wealthy. He's determined to do everything he can to make the Jaeger name mean something, and to that end he arranged the marriage of his younger brother, and is attempting to arrange his younger sister as well. England is a source of potential riches, and one of the hubs of wizarding culture, with Hogwarts being there, so he's come to try to make his mark. Wulf is an always-willing tool.
The half-sister of Adalynn Clark, who I plan to bring back as a character provided slots allow, Veronica is also the cousin of Willa and Oliver Taylor, the daughter of their muggle-born uncle. Veronica is a legitimate child of Marcus Taylor and his wife/life partner/ex, and the full sister of Jayden Taylor.

Things that are open to the player (or to whoever takes Jayden, whichever comes first): Age, name (surname must be Taylor, anything else goes), race (father is mostly white, mother can be any race or nationality), face claim, Hogwarts house, whether the mother is magic, personality, gender (though if cis male, I recommend looking at Jayden who is basically exactly this want ad, but cis male, that said, they can both be cis male or cis female if desired).
Hailey Lund grew up in a tiny town in Missouri, USA. She was a foster child, and her childhood was fairly average, but her foster brother's was not. Francis was a wizard, and though she didn't know it, she was certainly charmed - though perhaps not by the magic. He spent most of the year at a boarding school, but they were close when he came home, and in the last two summers before he turned eighteen, their relationship turned romantic, and then sexual. The summer before his eighteenth birthday and his final year at Hogwarts, they hooked up for the first and last time. Francis was already back at school when Hailey realized she was pregnant with a baby that could only be his, and her foster parents told him that he couldn't come back. It is up to the writer whether Hailey chose to keep the baby or not (both adoption and abortion are options if she chose not to). Either way, Hailey entered a tailspin and couldn't help but blame Francis for it, though she had also had a part in her own downfall.
Why Hailey has come to England is up to the writer, though I am willing to suggest ideas if desired. Either way, she's now back in the same area as her old lover, and there's too much between them to ignore, even if most of it isn't good.
social incest (foster siblings), teen pregnancy.optional:
abortion, adoption, or single parenthood, prostitution.
Thomas Whittemore was the oldest child, and Felicity's big brother, but he did little to earn the title. He was raised to believe he was a perfect pureblood prince, and that his oldest sister was his princess. He treated her like a doll to use to his advantage and tease other boys with, while he ignored their other siblings. Shortly after he graduated Hogwarts, he forced (and helped) his younger brother to beat someone to death while Felicity was the only other witness, and he held that and other things over their heads for years to come. Thomas is violent, controlling, and an ally to his sister's family, the Mercers.

(unintentional) child abandonment.optional:
Open to many. There has been a string of murders that has taken place over the years, with the primary targets being muggle women. One Kenny Villein is behind them, and while their deaths were bloody, many bodies were never recovered, and thus Kenny has not yet been caught. That said, however, he will be. In approximately two years, I plan to have Kenny captured and arrested for his crimes, at which point he will reveal all the names of women he killed.
These people can be PCs or NPCs, if you are interested in claiming one of these victims for your characters plot lines, please provide to me a name, age, and date. Details about dates can be found in Kenny's thread in my character development forum, or you can message me for more information. Please keep in mind that most bodies would not ever be recovered.
does not have to be role played
The sisters of Sechs, Quinta, and Roan. Up for grabs are four muggle women who vary greatly. They have three magical siblings, and each of them took the news differently.
Riley: 50, open. Riley was the first of Julius and Hanna Moore's children. She was conceived in Germany, and spurred her mother's move to Ireland. She was a calm child, and played a mothering role to her five oldest siblings as her mother was largely disinterested. When she found out Quinta, and then Sechs, were magic, she did her best to ignore it entirely, refusing to ask questions about their school and acting like they were simply at a muggle boarding school. In the more recent past, she may have been swayed one way or another, this is up to the writer.
June: 49, Jennifer Connelly/open. A drama queen and extrovert, June reacted worst when she found out about her siblings' magic. She has been afraid of magic since the beginning, and she has certainly joined the SSS.
Autumn: 42, open. Autumn was always a happy person. She was the kind of person everyone loved and people adored to spend time around her. She broke a lot of hearts in her youth, and modeled as a child. She was instantly supportive when she found out that Quinta was magical, and is likely still open to the idea of magic.
October: 41, open. With three older siblings, and two younger by the time she was four years old, October was never really given much attention from her parents. Hanna was disinterested, and while Julius tried, he was too busy to give all six of his children the love they deserved. She was always very jealous, and when all three of the siblings born after her developed magic, the jealousy therein only got worse and worse. She is likely part of the SSS.
If you have questions or would like to potentially change something given, please feel free to message me! I'll discuss these things with Dija.
