All About Your Character
Character Name? Dean Thomas

Occupation (Student: House, Year, Special Status?)? Gryffindor, Year Six

Physical Description? Tall, black guy; very open face; lean, fingers usually multi-colored because of painting/drawing; attractive but places little emphasis on his appearance by way of going out of his way *too* b e attractive.

Personality? Genuinely nice to mostly everyone. Very mellow. A bit aloof, but not meanly. Always willing to have a good time. A people person.

Greatest Positive Attribute? His artistic ability. The banner he made his first year for the Gryffindor Quidditch Team is the house's official banner.

Biggest Fault? Tends to go with the flow a little too much; to the point he's willing to do things he doesn't like/agree with just to not rock the boat and upset people.

Happiest Memory? Getting his first paint set and easel when he was 8.

Most painful Memory? His father leaving, or more the pain he felt when he realized he wasn't coming back.

Family history (blood, relations to other characters)? Muggleborn (but really half-blood, ala JK's site); cousin to Natalie McDonald

Background Information/Biography: Parents are from Jamaica originally. His biological father and mother met at a grocery store in London, fell in love, etc. Under pressure of Death Eaters, Dean's father had to leave without a word in order to protect them. Mother later remarried, and he has two younger brothers and a younger sister--all of whom are muggle. It's one big happy family, but Dean still wonders about the reason's behind his father's leaving.

[ mood | crazy. again. ]

Hello everyone again :)

Glad to know people are interested in the moving plan. We we intend on carrying it out, and as stated before, you get priority for your characters and do not have to reaudition. The game [yet untitled] however, begins on October 30th, and in order to carry over your characters you *do* have to fill one requirement. We need a reply here with each character you want to bring with you and plans for that character. We love you all dearly, but we don't want people attatched to their little minions (understandably) to bring them with them and then be just as dead as ever.

By the way, though we all love it (XD) "Shagging [insert guy/girl here]" does not count. You don't have to have established something with someone else, but you do have to have something ready. We also recognize that some people want to terminate certain characters. And to be fair, along with them goes their history so that the new player can come in with a clean slate. We want to give everyone the opportunity for their own thing and their own fun, and we've already come up with some exciting/terrifying things that will happen the first day of class.

Another adjustment, the game will now follow real time. It begins OCTOBER 30th, and thus at Hogwarts it will be October 30th, 1997.

So yes. To sum things up (as I am a bit spazzy at the moment) here we need replies with a) if you intend on coming [and if we fail to receive a reply, we'll assume the character is open], b) who you want to bring with you, c) what you plan on doing with him/her and d) if you think you're going to audition for someone else entirely and forget all your characters. The game begins October 30th in the first term. I know we're moving fast and this is sort of abrupt, but we're excited and pushing things forward and ready to get going. So start your engines and all that jazz.

[ mood | crazy ]

Hello everyone. <333 Rachel here, checking in with some info/questions/news.

This is it, nearing the end of the school year here in the game. It's a nice benchmarker, we've been at it since last December, I think? Or maybe January. Time flies and I cannot remember. *laughs* But at any rate, it's clear the RPG has slowed and players have dropped off whether they've left the game or not. Of course we all have things that we have to accomplish -- both mods here are seniors in high school and college respectively -- and so naturally an online game isn't first on the list of "things to do." But Inflecto is a nice refuge and means to procrastinate, and it was a fun game. The term for this year ends October 16th (June 16th game time), and all the students get on the train and go home for the summer.

While not exactly dead, the game is moving slowly like we said. However, Thalia and I have put our brains together (ahem.) to come up with an idea, which we want you to respond do with whatever thoughts/ideas/objections you have.

The "BIG" Idea:

Because the school year in Inflecto time ends October 16th, we propose that play halt there as the "summer break" begins. "Inflecto" is over, as the '96-'97 school year has come to an end. Then, in an attempt to get new players and people who want to join in and take on characters and still allow those players who desire to play with their same characters continue, we lift parts of what was Inflecto and bring it to a new community.

I'm probably not being very clear. But basically . . . those of you who want to continue on into the "seventh year" with all/some of the characters you've been playing can come on to a "new" community, a "new" RPG essentially, without having to reaudition those characters you played this time around. Those who don't want to come over and continue leave those characters open for new people to take on. People generally avoid coming into games already in progress, but if we're essentially beginning again, it won't be so intimidating to newbies, and those of you who've stuck around for all this time won't have to worry about getting your characters.

In addition to this, the new community, the seventh year community, will be based upon canon and *loosely* based upon Inflecto. That is the deaths that occurred this year still stand, the characterizations and relationships developed this year remain (if you and your character are making the move to the new community), but it's still open enough that old players can take on new characters *and* new players can take on open characters and develop them into what they want instead of something pre-determined by a player that doesn't want to continue on (or NPCing that occurred, so long as it doesn't disturb another person's plot line who does come along).

Once again, let me know if that makes any sense.

So there's the idea. And before we pick dates and start going into any of that, this is just a post to find out curiousity factor and what y'all think. It's our attempt to sort of "start over" without completely starting over. To begin a more plot driven RPG and still allow players to manipulate and work with the characters that they've been so dedicated to creating into realistic, viable people in relationships. So. Thoughts? Think we're crazy? XD

Hello [17 Sep 2004|04:57pm]

[ mood | excited ]

Hello everyone, I'm Jess.

Ray asked me a couple of days ago if I was interested in doing another RP with her, I applied for Hermione, and in a few days, I found out that I did get her.

So, yes, bookworm Hermione am I.

I'm excited about starting up another RP - interestingly enough my first time as a member of the trio - and getting to know everyone and all of their characters. So, thus, if you want Hermione in any plots or just want to start something up with me, I'm completely up for it. You can reach me via AIM at: meh or woe - and YIM/YMail at meh_or_woe@yahoo.com - and since I'm almost constantly glued to the computer when I am home, I can promise that at most it would be a few days before you'd hear back from me.

So, hello, and hurrah, let's start things up. =D

Oh -- just my RP history just for the fun of it and maybe to see if I've been in other games with people, I was dennis_creevy and (Blaise Zabini) damn_mudbloods at reparo, not_a_troll at aparecium_rpg, for a few months played, arguably one of the best of my characters, (Lucius Malfoy) damn_mudbloods at alohomora_rpg, and my most recent one being russian_raven over at _hogwash_.

I have just recently joined inflecto as the esteemed Potions Master, Severus Snape. I'm not quite sure how things are done around here... and I've been trying to watch and see and see where/how I can RP.

A Long-Thought-On Decision [21 Aug 2004|11:27pm]

[ mood | frazzled and behind ]


I've been thinking about this a lot, and my recent over-three-week stint of not actually reading the posts has just put the icing on the cake.

I'm afraid I'm going to have to back out of the game.  I was home for two weeks straight, but I didn't get on the computer for more than two hours, and I have TONS of fic to catch up on, not to mention my regular e-mail, and the other stuff I do online.

At this point, I haven't seen Inflecto since July 30, and it kind of sucks, but there's just NO WAY I'm going to get caught up with everything, AND be able to keep up with everything else as I catch up.

So, it's time for me to say goodbye.  Feel free to IM me whenever you like; I'm always up for a good chat, be it intelligent or silly.

If anyone wants ANY of my characters, please e-mail me (DASWillow783@lycos.com) or IM me (AIM: Darcy783), and I'll hand over the reigns of whichever character you like.

Until my characters are taken over, I hereby give permission for anyone who needs RP-ing with them to sort of NPC them if you need to.

In case you all forgot, the characters I have (in the order I got them) are:

Professor Minerva McGonagall
Fred Weasley
Percy Weasley
Bill Weasley
Colin Creevey
Fleur Delacour

RachelMod, Thalia--I was going to try to discuss this with you over AIM beforehand, but it didn't work out that way, and I felt that I should get this announcement up before I got even further behind and people started beating me over the head for not posting.

Anyway, it's been fun, but I simply won't have the time to keep up (or the energy, truth be known).  Maybe if you end up doing a shorter-length RPG (almost any genre I'm familiar with will do), then I'll be able to participate later.

This is me, signing off,

n00b alert [28 Jul 2004|06:25pm]

[ mood | n00bie-ish ]

Hi! I'm Ash ( worstangel ) and I'll be playing Su Li in the game. I've been rping for three years steady and think it's the greatest thing in the world. XD

Here's my character stat's:
Character Name? Su Li
Occupation (Student: House, Year, Special Status?)? Sixth year Ravenclaw; Chaser on the Quidditch team.
Physical Description? Short, pencil-thin, with chin-length dark eyes and hair.
Personality? Smart enough to put a Finishing Charm on her homework so she can play chess in the common room, Su Li isn't remarkably clever in the conversation department (especially when Michael Corner's around), but her addiction to Honeydukes' chocolate is known throughout Hogwarts.
Greatest Positive Attribute? She is the chocolate pimp. And her potions have never blown up.
Biggest Fault? Su has a tendency to freak out over the small things, blowing it up into a catastrophe.
Happiest Memory? Making a spectacular throw that knocked the Hufflepuff Keeper for a loop -- and it gave Ravenclaw ten points.
Most painful Memory? Falling off her broom five seconds after her Happiest Memory, due to a Bludger in the shoulder.
Family history (blood, relations to other characters)? Half-blood; no relations at Hogwarts.
Background Information/Biography: With a Muggle father (who's a psychiatrist) and a (slightly eccentric) witch mother, Su Li's life pre-Hogwarts was nice. Growing up in Hertfordshire, she led a semi-privileged life. While not rich, she certainly never lacked material posessions. At Hogwarts, she has a medium-sized circle of friends, all Ravenclaws. She's fairly normal.

I'm hoping to have some fun here and make a lot of friends.
Hopefully, this doesn't sound too newbieish.

Hi all! I'm Jamie and I'll be playing Mandy Brocklehurst. Y'all can e-mail me at ilovepie2much@yahoo.com and I have Y!M, same sn.

Here is Mandy's info from my audition:

Character Name? Amanda Alice Brocklehurst

Occupation (Student: House, Year, Special Status?)? Mandy is a sixth year Hogwarts student in Ravenclaw and an aspiring politician.

Physical Description? Though she hates it, Mandy has to admit that she’s petite in every sense of the word. She’s 5’3", small boned and slender. She makes up for it by wearing heels and holding her head high at all times, which occasionally gives people the impression that she’s arrogant or self-absorbed. Her hair is thick and brown, and her face is solemn but kind.

Personality? When she was sorted, the hat was torn between putting her in Ravenclaw and Slytherin. She has enough ambition to inspire at least half of her house and enough drive to ignore her guilt when she has to manipulate someone to get what she wants. Mandy is analytical and logical, though sometimes less than compassionate. She’s the ultimate leader; whenever a situation becomes hectic, she steps to the front of the group and makes the decisions. Mandy has great ideas and can give Hermione a run for her money, but she’s not the best at compromising. She’s a dedicated friend and selfless with regard to her mates.

Greatest Positive Attribute? Her dedication. To friends, to family, to her work, to everything.

Biggest Fault? Her biggest fault is either her tendency to become over-confident, or how aloof she can be. She either feels strongly about something, or she’s apathetic.

Happiest Memory? The summer she had her schoolmates visit for two weeks.

Most painful Memory? Any time she competes and loses, it’s painful.

Family history (blood, relations to other characters)? Mandy’s parents are both wizard-kind, but she has no relations with other characters in the game presently.

Background Information/Biography: Mandy was born October 1st, 1980 in London’s posh Holland Park district to her parents, a muggle-born witch and wizard. Her younger brother was born when she was six, and the four of them live comfortably in the home she was raised in.

My absence last night [24 Jul 2004|01:23pm]

Ok all,

I had a great birthday!

I didn't have the time I thought I'd have to get on the computer between work, errand-running, and the dance at my church though, so I'd be greatful if I could possibly RP last night's ball later on this weekend. Not today though, because 1) I'm on my dad's computer, and he doesn't have AIM, 2) I'm not going to be online for the rest of the day due to my birthday party, and 3) well, there is no 3.

But anyway, the next time I'm online, at least some of you will probably know it, since y'all have AIM.

*who is 21 now, and can be the "adult" in the car when her sister drives with a learner's permit . . . scary*

Hear Ye! Hear Ye! [21 Jul 2004|06:16pm]

[ mood | Resigned to My Fate ]

Just to let y'all know, I might or might not be online the rest of the week. I'm blowing away my computer, and rebuilding from the switches up.

Why, you ask? Well, I downloaded this free spyware detection program, and it detected over 200 spyware infections, so I thought it'd be easier to do it this way. No worries; I've got backups of all the important stuff that's not on the network here.

I hope to be back up and running with everything back in place (I've made a list of EVERYTHING I need to re-copy to the "new" computer, so I don't forget, and Inflecto files ARE included) by Friday, so that I can participate in the ball.

If I'm not back then, please remember that it's my birthday (I'll be 21!), just because I asked you to remember. Oh, and it's also Daniel Radcliffe's birthday on Friday too . . . Only he'll be fifteen.

As I said, I'll try to be back on Friday. If I'm not, Saturday's out, because I'm having a party. I'll try for Sunday or Monday, if I'm not back Friday. At that time, I might like to try and RP my characters' parts of the ball, if that's okay. After all, I definitely need Percy to talk to his family, as well as Harry. And Fred's gotta be there to do that too.

But if I am back on Friday, I'll just contact anyone I need to RP with that day. :)

That said, see y'all on the flipside--and maybe, I won't be tempted to download too many pointless programs that just happen to be spyware (like KaZaA) in the future.

Character Number Six . . . [03 Jul 2004|10:33pm]


Hi all, me again (Darcy), this time with Fleur:

Fleur Ilyàbelle Delacour is the Liaison Spéciale pour la Départemente des Relations Magiques et Internationale (Special Liaison for the French Department of International Magical Cooperation), as well as former Triwizard Champion for Beaubatons Academy

With blue eyes, pale skin, and blonde hair, Fleur is your typical veela's descendant.  Since she's had to go through life with the "curse" of beauty, Fleur, at first, comes off as rather caustic--she's usually wary about anyone, especially anyone male, paying attention to her, because of her veela heritage.  She's very loyal to the few close friends she has, however, and, since her experiences with Harry Potter during the Triwizard Tournament, is making more of an effort not to judge people--even men--before she's given them a chance, even if that chance only lasts a minute or two.

Anyone who doesn't know Fleur personally would tell you that her best characteristic is her beauty.  But those who do know her cite her deep affection and caring toward her baby sister, Gabrielle as her most endearing quality.

Fleur has trust and self esteem issues, stemming from the way people have always looked at her.  The girls were all jealous, the guys were all smitten, and all because of something Fleur couldn't control--genetics.  She puts up an icy front, so as not to get hurt the next time a boyfriend turns out to only want to "get in her pants," and not care about who she is.  However, on the inside, she desperately wants to scream at those other girls, "Go ahead!  Take him!  Can't you see, I'd rather be your friend than be the reason you hate me?!?"

Fleur's happiest memory is of Christmas mornings, sharing crèpes and croissants with her parents and her sister after their small family gift exchanges.  The Delacours would talk about the most mundane topics, but were never pressed for a laugh on those Yuletides.

Fleur's first sexual experience was completely non-consenual.  That was the first time she realized that, just because the man said she looked nice, and complimented her, doesn't mean HE was nice.

A few of Fleur's distant French cousins are related to the Malfoys in England.  She's not quite sure WHICH distant cousins, or quite HOW they're related to the Malfoys, she just knows they are.

Fleur grew up in an all-wizarding household near Nice, in southern France.  She enjoyed walking along the beaches in the summertime, watching her hair turn whiter in the sun's rays over the season.

Her father, François Guillaume Delacour, was very respected in the French Ministry of Magic, and he worked as the Head of the Départemente des Mistiques (Department of Mysteries) for twenty years before he retired in late 1994.  Fleur's mother, a half-veela by the name of Charlotte DesOiseau, was also a Nonparler (Unspeakable, basically).

As a little girl, Fleur wanted nothing more than to be "Daddy's little princess" forever, and when Gabrielle came along, that dream included her little sister as well.  But eventually, the girls had to go separate ways when they went to different schools in Fleur's first year at Beaubatons.

Fleur's going to be working with the British Ministry of Magic, to help figure out what happened with the Paris portkey office, among other things.

More hijinks on High Street [14 Jun 2004|01:24pm]

[ mood | optimistic ]

Brynne Dunstan is moving to Hogsmeade to open a branch of Quality Quidditch Supplies. The Diagon Alley location of QQS was started by Brynne's great, great grandfather, and is in the process of being handed on to the next generation.

Born August 25, 1978, Brynne attended Hogwarts from 1989-96, being sorted into Hufflepuff House. She is the youngest child and only daughter to, Purebloods, Julian and Gwyneth Dunstan. Her oldest brother, Bran, 25, is taking over the family business as their parents move toward retirement while Dylan, 22, plays Beater for the Tutshill Tornados. Dylan's true love is for the sport and he has no head for business. By opening QQS Hogsmeand, Brynne is saving him from having to leave Professional Quidditch to assist with the business.

If you see her on the streets of Hogsmeade, stop and say hello. Brynne is 5'9" and slim with dark blonde hair and hazel eyes. She is reserved around new acquaintances, but will quickly warm up if the discussion turns to Quidditch. Brynne is a loyal and helpful friend once she gets to know you, and she is very family oriented.

Oh, and if you play professional Quidditch and even think about asking her out for a date, think again. Don't believe me? Go ask Patrick Connolly.

Brynne is up for any sort of plottage. Feel free to ping me at Yahoo user disparagingrant if you have any ideas for Brynne or Quality Quidditch Supplies ~ Hogsmeade.

If anyone needs Rodolphus while I am gone I have placed in the capable hands of Sky. *nods* That is all now back to the regularly scheduled RPG

Seriously, y'all should fire me. :-p

Would the players of the following characters please contact me for timetables? (That's class schedules for us Americans.) I realized a little bit ago that I hadn't done everyone's when I saw their bios up in this community.

Poor students; they're all Slytherin. I didn't mean to forget, really, I didn't!

Bundy, Kendra
Dobbs, Emma
Goyle, Gregory
Nott, Theodore

3rd, 4th & 5th years, pick electives (Ancient Runes, Arithmancy, Care of Magical Creatures, Divination, or Muggle Studies), and 6th & 7th years, choose at least five classes from the lists in this post by mod!Rachel.

Just comment to this post with your choices, and that would be fine.

Please also include an e-mail address so that I can send the schedule to you. Schedules are in MSExcel format.
