    NOTE: This adoptable has already been taken in the past, despite there not having been any threads. This is the respective application. You can choose to either adopt that word for word and get back to me on plotting decided for that route, or take on what's written below, which is an entirely new idea and gives some flexibility. Don't worry about the account still being active as the player is long gone.

    NOTE: This is a take on the soul concept as presented in the Harry Potter series, and adding to that, the concept of a soulmate, and having both deal with the fact that they're fated to have their lives intertwined no matter what happens between them, or how much one wrongs the other.

    • Only the middle name is negotiable, and the PB is as well;
    • She is Lisa Knotley's ex-girlfriend, but isn't aware of the fact as the relationship was hidden in her mind;
    • At least bisexual;
    • Comes from money;
    • Has had her memory tampered with without her knowledge or consent by Lisa Knotley, who, in a panic, erased any indication of a relationship after their fateful last night together in Penrose (during which they were each other's first time as well);
    • She remembers Lisa as being a little ball of positive energy and jokes;
    • Fantastic Quidditch player with potential to pursue a professional career in the sport if she so wishes;
    • Her chemistry with Lisa should be very noticeable to others;
    • Always been shorter than Lisa, and this used to be a running gag. Now, she stands 1 cm taller than her;
    • Shares a wand core with Lisa, from the same animal, making it so their wands are twins;
    • Cannot perform a Patronus in any way (not even non-corporeal) because her happier memories have been locked away;
    • Anything not described is up to you.

    A way to describe her is 'a force of nature'. She's a bit of a chatty Cathy, making friends wherever she goes, and loves pranking people for a good laugh or two. Much like her other half, she enjoys a good challenge; unlike her, she has the ability of controlling herself and swallowing her pride far more easily, as well as having the capacity of being more understanding and caring of others. She's always been one of the more popular girls in Penrose (until a certain point of her life anyway). Adding to that the fact she's a good student and athlete, one could think she has it all; that couldn't be further from the truth as the girl is deeply insecure of her abilities and needs constant outer motivation to keep her head on straight and move on with her goals. She used to heavily rely on Lisa for this (not that she recalls), and as such, from the moment the blonde left, things spiraled out of control.

    Jane first enrolled Penrose at the behest of her parents, whom wanted to ensure they had their daughter enroll in the most prestigious school of Victoria (which, when compared to Tallygarunga, it was an easy feat). Boarding the school due to coming from a distant town, she was roomed with Lisa Knotley, another First Year with whom she clicked instantly. The two soon became best of friends - Lisa needing attention, needing someone to reel in her ambitious nature and Jane needing someone to motivate her, the dormitory arrangement turned out to be a perfect storm for them. It didn't take long for them to develop romantic feelings for each other; just a little while after the first break started, Lisa went ahead and confessed her feelings in a heartfelt poem, presenting no fear for rejection, which was just like her - recklessness galore.

    The two opted to make their relationships secret - they didn't want to be relocated to other rooms in an effort by the school to keep them separate, nor did they want their parents to pull them out of the schools. As such, during most of the day, their interactions were mostly limited to studying together, joking around, pranking people and training Quidditch together and hope to Merlin nobody would find out, or notice. As it turns out, plenty of people suspected it, but not one raised any question about it.

    The years went by a bit too fast for their liking. As the third year drew to a close, they were hit with the news that Lisa's father had perished, and as such, she'd have to be pulled from Penrose at the end of the break due to her brother lacking the funds to keep her enrolled in a private school. They spent the break together obsessing over plans to keep in touch over the years; in the last day, as Lisa watched Jane sleep after they both finally cracked and reached a step in their intimacy that they hadn't before, she panicked. In a mix of self hatred, insecurity and self sacrifice, she cast a memory charm that hid everything Jane had ever experienced from their relationship to the fullest extent of her ability. She cleaned the area up, got Jane dressed, gathered whatever little trinkets they had acquired together over the years, and left. When Jane woke up the next morning, the room was strangely empty.

    The next couple years were very harsh on Jane. Even if the memories were locked away, her feelings and instincts weren't; not only that, but she had completely lost her main source of motivation. She figured that she had feelings for Lisa but hadn't figured them out until the girl had left, and no matter how hard she tried to know about it, nobody seemed to be aware of why she left or where she went. The girl didn't seem to have a QuillBook either, and her classmates stated the blonde had never really been interested in having one before to begin with. There was no way to reach the girl she had fallen for, and she was alone. The demotivation started to rear its head as well as her grades slipped and her competence in the Quidditch field took a nosedive.

    It was early in her sixth year that she was informed by school staff that they couldn't just justify keeping someone like her enrolled anymore, no matter how much money in the world her parents had. Begrudgingly they pulled her from the school, and enrolled her in Tallygarunga. Little does Jane know that this is the best possible thing that could happen...

    • Now that her motivation is finally in sight, perhaps she should work her way back into the top echelon of school Quidditch; hell, aim to become a pro athlete again.
       
    • How is she going to deal with having the love of her life so close, after so many years? On top of that, she both looks and acts... Very, very different.
       
    • Isn't it strange that she seems to instinctively know how to handle Lisa despite never having been more than a distant friend/roommate?
       
    • While it is very much free reign regarding how Jane conducts herself with pretty much everyone, I do want it to lead into an emotionally charged situation wherein Lisa doesn't find it in her to keep the memory charm up anymore eventually.
