Johanna Corduroy ǀ 6th year ǀ Slytherin ǀ Muggleborn


Johanna is an apathetic, jaded smartass and professional liar. She’s a lot of talk, but ultimately she’s only in this for herself and will probably let you down. Johanna’s a weirdness magnet, and situations tend to only get worse when she gets involved. She’s the kind of person who’d accidently start a flood while trying to put out a fire, then leave the clean-up to someone else. While she might seem unfazed in the face of danger, taking everything with a heavy dose of sarcasm, she’s a total coward who, ever self-preserving, will always save her own skin. At this point, she too has realised that she’s kind of a terrible person, but instead of trying to better herself her attitude is well I’m already going to hell so go big or go home. Selfish, foul-mouthed and cynical, with, unsurprisingly, a lot of self-loathing underneath. She comes from a broken home that kicked her out last year, and she now practically lives at Hogwarts, working at Hogsmeade during the vacations so she can support herself. Oh, and she's a heavy smoker.

She’s into niche, obscure types of witchcraft, and prefers magic “from a distance” over actual spellcasting. But compared to her backstabbing curses and enchantments, her duelling skills are mediocre, and fighting without magic is entirely impossible since she’s physically out of shape, so she’ll avoid confrontation and try to talk her way out of things. What a loser. Before she got her Hogwarts letter, she was into muggle magic tricks, which she’s still good at and occasionally performs. Is this your card? (She should actually use real magic for this, like the fraud she is, but I need to get to Novice first for that Wandless magic request =P That’s pretty much all she’ll be able to do with wandless magic, making coins vanish and pulling the right card out of a deck lolol)

Friends: Johanna’s not necessarily bad at making friends, she can be funny and charming when she needs to be, it’s keeping them that’s hard. They tend to leave her, and they have every right to, bc she's a lot of talk but doesn't really deliver. So I can imagine that she used to be friends with people but that they got sick of her. As for actual friends now in the present, uh, fellow trainwrecks maybe?
Okay I guess some people might think her ‘don’t care’ attitude is cool. Johanna always pretends to know what she’s doing, to be an expert even, and some might buy it since she can be very convincing. So idk, I think people younger than her might look up to her? And then be very disappointed.
OH and she should probably know some Hogsmeade residents, since she works there.

Enemies: Well, first of all she’s a muggleborn in Slytherin. Fight her. Second, she walks into class in her ripped jeans and band shirts, wearing nothing of the uniform except for the Slytherin tie, and probably has to ask you for a quill. Everyone who takes their education seriously, roll your eyes. She’s not good with authority figures either. And then there's ofc all those old friends who don't like her anymore... the list goes on, really.

Luv: Why. Okay, Johanna is bisexual, but with a slight preference for girls, and I imagine she has crushes on straight girls a lot and then complains about it.
She’s very open about her sexuality (read: she constantly outs herself bc she just had to make a lame pun about her sexuality) and has probably had a couple of flings in the past, but if she can’t even keep friends how can she keep a partner?

I’m also just going to apologise to every 6th year Slytherin girl who shares a dorm with her bc she bought a guitar last year and she’s still shite at it. Oh and lemme just apologise to everyone for the fact that she’s from Liverpool.
Anyway, I'm still trying to figure her out, so I need everything =D

Now that I’m here I’m also going to throw up
Gretchen Kirke-Faust ǀ 5th year ǀ Ravenclaw ǀ Pureblood


Quick re-cap, Gretchen’s from an unconventional pureblood family who seem to pride themselves on being pariahs. They’re known as, according to HP canon, Mudwallowers and ofc blood traitors, so very pro- muggles, pro- muggleborns, but they’re also pro- beings and pro- beasts, because only ignorance should be feared. They dabble in the dark arts as well, and are known for “chasing fairy tales”, such as the deathly hallows or the holy grail.

Gretchen is observant, scheming, and aloof, but she's always nice - it's just a lukewarm kind of nice, although she genuinely likes being helpful. It's just that she has been taught to be courteous and gracious but always detached - like a good little aristocrat. Her family is a little paranoid, and so Gretchen has been taught to be distrusting and guarded. She barely ever lets those walls down so she's difficult to get to know, or even read. Even when her kindness is sincere, she might come off as distant. She keeps mostly to herself, and tends to be quiet and observant. She's scheming and can be kind of manipulative, so the observation skills are mostly used to keep a mental checklist of everything that might be of use to her. Most of the time she’s patient and soft-spoken, unless things don’t go her way. She likes to be in control of the situation, doesn’t respect rules if she doesn’t agree with the reasoning behind the rule, and is argumentative and will not give in easily.
She's tiny and has a big, fluffy cat following her around everywhere. Gretchen’s also prefect for the summer term, and she’s in the choir, so she might know people from there.

Friends: She’s always on her toes, so she doesn’t make friends easily. Around muggleborns she can be more relaxed, bc they won’t judge her by her family name, but she’ll still be guarded and reserved. It takes a long time until she lets down her walls. One character trait that she hates about herself is her compassion, she hides it well and tries to smother it, but sometimes her heart will get the best of her, so when someone is struggling she will help out. She also always stands up for her ideals, so she will always defend muggleborns.
Gretchen grew up in a weird, eccentric household that included a vampire and a ghost, so she’s at ease around other beings and will most likely socialise more with the Hogwarts ghosts than with her peers.

Enemies: elitist purebloods, but also just purebloods in general who’ve heard from their parents how weird her family is. Tbh I have a lot of this already, but that was to be expected xD Her family also considers the Nilsson their archenemies, so if you do business with them you can consider yourself on the list.

Luv: Lolol. If she were to date, there’s a high chance she just reasoned with herself “they’re cute, nice, and like me. Why not?” without actually caring for the other person, and she probably wouldn’t even show them the real her. Actually catching feelings for someone would probably just make her mad at herself and sent her into a little identity crisis. Which would be GREAT lmao but I don’t want to force it, so I’m not up for an endgame, as I’d like to just play things out and see how characters go together.

I'm very bad at summarising apparently. Sorry for the walls of text xD

I love this yes pls I can def see the fwb thing (Johanna's pretty vocal about liking people's appearance, and she probably thinks Coralie's gorgeous) + complaining about unrequited crushes thing, and Johanna probably doesn't understand art but she can laze around while Coralie creates and they can just be kinda weird together O++
I like the idea of eccentric people hanging out lmao

/flies off to reply to your plotter now lol ='D Oh, my Skype is gwen7vds ^^

So much love spam..

OK YES BUT

Johanna and Lenny have some poop in common bc both muggleborn and slytherin and liars and big mouthed cowards. idk if this would make them friends, enemies or that ever magical frenemies. Although I could possibly seem them having gotten along at least a bit in the past and then maybe something went down and someone bailed on someone and now they're like aaaayyyyyyyy -squints-

Pretty sure Bort would butt heads a lot with her. In a "THIS A NON SMOKING SECTION -gestures to the whole school-" kind of way. which could be fun.

I also think Johanna and Mitch could be kind of hilarious, bc like all her sarcasm would completely go over his head and if she insulted him he'd just be like "-shrugs- sure" and if they ever partied together and something happened that made her cut out he'd still be like "-shrugs- whatever. i like yo' hair" WHAT A LAD.

ADDITIONALLY

I kind of want to throw Bort at Gretchen in that kind of "losers gonna be losers" kind of way. but i don't really have any other ideas beyond that but yeah! I'll skype you... probably now. xD

JOHANNA AND CASSIUSI think that it would be interesting to see them become friends. Cassius is secretly caring and would never leave Johanna. Although she would have to be the one to approach him first, they would make great buds. Let me know what you think?

@Cassius Jackson

Oooooh hi again!
Yes, this would be interesting! They can bump into each other on accident, maybe? She isn't quick to approach people BUT some random adventure could befall them. I see Johanna as kind of a weirdness magnet with awful luck. Perhaps he's studying in the library when her Care of Magical Creatures book runs off or starts attacking her or something, so she needs to ask for help xD

Hey Robin! So I don't think we've ever plotted before but uhh I'd like to offer you Hyun for Johanna, maybe? I read "weirdass magnet" and immediately was like meet Hyun, the weirdest of them all. He's a bit of a trainwreck too and weird and I think he'd totally roll along with whatever Johanna says whether it's true or not because he tends to be dumb that way. Um. Yes.
