There were tons of possibles sent in and since it would be pretty counterproductive to have a list of fifty options when there are only around 35 of us to vote, I tried to narrow it down to the top 5. If your suggestion isn’t on here, there will be plenty of other opportunities in the future! Please send an ask here to vote for one of the following:
Emma Vanity ϟ Paralegal ϟ FC: Annalynne Mccord ϟ OPEN
↳ After an almost unheard of five years as Quidditch captain for the house team, everyone expected that Emma Vanity would go on to the professional leagues and take the game by storm. She certainly had the talent, but Emma lacked the drive. Despite being one of the fiercest and most respected captains of the time, Emma had no interest in pursuing something so meaningless like Quidditch (in her opinion) as a full-time career. Her real passions lay in winning, no matter what the competition was, and to her an intellectual triumph would always be superior to the superficial win of a sporting event. It seemed obvious to her that the life of a lawyer (and hopefully one day a member of the Wizengamot) was the right choice. With her connections to the wizarding law firm Van Buren, Vaughn, and Vanity, Emma began her education in law immediately after graduation and worked her way up from intern to paralegal in no time with a small amount of help form her father and a large amount of drive and academic passion on her side. Soon she hopes to be qualified as a lawyer herself, and after that she won’t hesitate to do whatever it takes to win her cases and win herself a spot on the Wizengamot in a few decades time.
✔ Logical, intelligent, confident
✕ Argumentative, competitive, intimidating
- Slytherin class of 1976
- Former Quidditch captain (‘72-‘76)
- Was the British Youth Representative to the Winzengamot for two years prior to turning eighteen.
Barty Crouch Jr. ϟ 6th year ϟ FC: Bill Skarsgard ϟ OPEN
Barty was never a troublesome child. Even as an infant he made very little fuss and caused his parents so few sleepless nights that it was almost as if he didn’t need their assistance at all. Especially not with the House Elves around to tend to him. When his mother offered this information up to him at the age of thirteen, something seemed to click in his mind. He had never demanded attention from his parents, his busy father especially, and so he had never received it. His father, a Ministry powerhouse, spent more time at the office worrying about catching dark wizards than he did with his own son, and though his mother cared very much for him, her abilities to show affection frequently were stumped as a result of her own hands-off upbringing. Barty was, for all he knew, invisible. He began craving his father’s attention more and more as he grew up, and as his peers were growing away from their parents, Barty longed to grow closer. His hunger for attention began to eat away at him until the quiet, low-maintenance boy of his youth had grown into an angry, troublesome deviant. If it was dark wizards that his father cared about, it was a dark wizard he would become. Undecided for a very long while on whether or not he really had the guts or the want to join the Dark Lord’s forces, his father’s promotion to Head of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement in the summer of 1978 solidified his choice. Now it’s only a matter of time, a matter of making the right connections, and a matter of shaping himself whoreheartedly into the kind of person Lord Voldemort would want in his ranks. Little does he know that his connections to the Ministry have already gotten him noticed, and he’s closer to becoming a Death Eater than he might have been prepared for.
✔ Clever, emotional, well connected
✕ Needy, unstable, conniving
- Drops out of school at the height of the first war (presumably in his 7th year)
- Participates in the torture of Alice and Frank Longbottom in 1981
- Joins the Death Eaters as a cry for attention, but quickly is brainwashed into believing their cause legitimately.
Saraphine Snow ϟ Poisonous Plant Regulations Board ϟ FC: Crystal Reed ϟ OPEN
↳ If anyone knows how to cry, it’s Saraphine. Her first week of Hogwarts was spent in tears, suffering from separation anxiety from her big, loving family. Her house mates might have thought that was the worst of it, but they would soon find that they were sadly mistaken. Saraphine is in the habit of crying when she’s angry, a nasty little trick that infuriates her more than all else. It makes arguing very near impossible, not that she’s one for confrontation on most occasions. She cries when she’s happy, which can also be frustrating (especially if she’s taken a lot of time to perfect her makeup that morning). She cries when she’s sad, lonely, reading a book that’s hardly even upsetting at all. Seeing an old couple holding hands in a restaurant can bring a tear to her eye, and stress is certainly a trigger for tears too, which is most unfortunate considering she has a tendency to bite off way more than she can chew in order to help her friends and anyone in need. Volunteering in shelters, helping her superiors on the job, even taking extra shifts and doing research for others; nevermind that she often falls behind on her own work because she’s busy doing everyone else’s. Coming from a huge family where everyone helped everyone else, it’s second nature for her to lend a hand here or there, but what she is coming to slowly realize is that maybe it’s time to start taking care of herself, too. Maybe she would cry less, maybe she wouldn’t fall behind, and maybe she wouldn’t always feel like such a doormat if she could learn to stand up for herself and ask that the kindness she showed others was returned to her.
✔ Kind, helpful, motherly
✕ Quiet, overly-emotional, sensitive
Youngest child of seven (Three brothers, three sisters)
- One of her siblings will join the Death Eaters and be taken to Azkaban by the end of the war
- Hufflepuff class of 1978
Friends and family, ladies and gents, humans and animals of PFTM, I have an announcement to make: I am very tired of being sad, and of my characters being sad, and of people dying, and of this whole war mumbo-jumbo that likes to suck the happiness and joy from my life. So I’d like to propose that this weekend (18th, 19th, and 20th) we forget all about this death and destruction and give ourselves and our characters the chance to do something a little bit more uplifting, or at least a little bit different.
If you have any suggestions for the AU theme, please send them to me by tomorrow night. I’ll have a post of the top picks up soon for everyone to vote on, and then announce the winner on Thursday so everyone can have time to prepare!
There’s no circumstance in which I would “absolutely have to choose” an alternative FC for her. I’m pretty attached to Jamie Chung, not because of her ethnicity, but because her gifs are appropriate for the character. Also, Minka Kelly was born in California and has French and Irish ancestry. Tan isn’t an ethnicity. It’s a product of living in New Mexico and LA. If I were choosing FCs based purely on that actor/actresses background, Minka Kelly would still be white.
And for the record, if you have to apologize for sounding like a “racist prick” it’s probably because you’re being a racist prick and should re-evaluate what you’re asking.
My apologies for the potentially rude reply, but I hope this helps alleviate some of your ignorance on the subject :)
Well Dani has kindly volunteered to make an admin page for me apparently. And if you don’t know, now you know.
I’m not really sure what you mean by that. As in a page where I’m like “Hi I’m Melissa I’m the admin at PFTM. Here are some quirky and unimportant facts about me that you probably don’t care about.” Because I feel like if that’s what you mean, I don’t really need a page for that. The cow pictures and answered asks on the first page pretty much sum all of that up.
And if that’s not what you mean, please elaborate!
