ACHILLES & BRANWYN BÁLOR
hullo :eyes: we vaguely plotted that branwyn was one of achilles's interns over the summer (she would've been working alongside lyra caldwell
, if you're interested in plots with mai!), and...well. i can't tell if achilles would like her. LOL.
even if that's the case, i've always headcanoned that achilles deeply respects the bálors (particularly maxwell), and even pulled some strings to get maxine a lighter sentence when she was sent to azkaban. so whether or not his personality meshes with branwyn's, he's there to provide connections, and would dutifully show her the ropes of being a wizengamot.
it might be interesting to do a thread set over the summer, during her internship? let me know if you want to flesh something out there! otherwise, it's fine with me if we just establish them as being on decent terms.
ELIJAH & BRANWYN
both purebloods and both in the dueling club! i also think eli would get a kick out of her outspokenness, or maybe even have a slight crush on her.
i think, right now, their relationship to max could be an easy venue for interactions. i never thought eli was close with max, but i do think he liked / respected her, and sort of earned respect by being intelligent and autonomous, both when they played quidditch together, and during other events. his current feelings towards max are ... different, to say the least LOL.
but — yeah. uh. we could do dueling threads, or they could talk about max, or whatever, really! i'm open to anything.
COLBY & EMMETT
so, personality–wise, these two are wildly different — however, in terms of experience, i really, really think they could find a strong connection with each other. they were both held back at some point (emmett in 5th year, cole last year), so they would have been in the same year for most of their time in school. (and fun fact, cole was almost held back during his fifth year as well, after his brother's suicide.)
anyway. cole's an outgoing dude that is totally driven by emotion, but he's got a ton of love to give? and i think possibly he wants to look out for emmett, just to make sure he's doing alright, and i can also see him liking emmett for a lot of reasons. there are the obvious, like both being muggle-borns, both being raised by a single parent, both slacking in school, etc., but i can also see unlikely connections building during threads, too.
i do sense that someone like cole may come off as a little strong for emmett, but i figure that, if they became friendly kinda early on, emmett may be used to that? idk? i really want to plot these two and can see a lot of interesting things coming out of it, despite the unlikelihood of the friendship, so if you're interested we should talk more!!
DONNY & EMMETT
so i think donny has. kind of strange reservations about emmett. on one hand, he sees a bit of jude in him; on the other, he sees a bit of himself. and for some reason i sense that donny may perceive certain aspects of jude's home life because donny has also experienced abuse (mostly verbal from his father, but physical from partners in his past) and has seen the ways it weighed on jude in school.
so i think donny has a strange nostalgia about emmett.
in any case, i wonder if these two could connect over art. donny, too, would sketch all throughout school, and does a lot of sketching / painting nowadays, too.
i also think donny is a pretty calm presence, and doesn't push people to talk or explain, and. idk. i can actually see them having a strangely ... intimate connection? (i don't mean intimate romantically, i just mean, like. a closeness.) so idk, i'd love for donny to have more positive relationships with students. if you think it's possible hit me up.
