Thread Highlights & Adoptable Features

Hey guys!

I would like to get this going again, and I need your help to do so! Featuring quotes and snippets of different threads is something we've done since... well basically ever.

Submitting Thread quotes:

Unfortunately I don't get to read through as many threads as I used to, so to make sure that we get a good spread across the board, I gotta ask you all to submit anything that you think is amusing, feelsy, dramatic, fun, or just otherwise worth capturing! To submit quotes, simply head over to the Thread Highlights database:

https://www.tallygarunga.com/highlights/

You don't need to supply an image, but if you did -- that would be awesome. I'll make an image otherwise! That's easy done. If you have any ideas of what the image could or should be, let me know.

Submitting Adoptables to feature:

I also want to advertise some of our adoptables that we have available. With these, the more information is available, the better (eg. name, age, position, etc). If you have a potential PB that also helps, but they don't have to be set in stone.

If you want your adoptables included, post to this announcement topic with:

  • A link to the adoptable's page
  • Their name (or a suggested name)
  • Their PB (or a suggested PB)
  • Their position (or a general idea of what they might do)
  • A 1-2 line description of plot ideas you have for this character.

Submitting threads to feature:

If you just want to feature a thread (an open thread, class, event, etc) without submitting a highlight, post to this announcement topic with:

  • A link to the thread
  • The thread type (open, class, event, etc)
  • A short 1-2 line description of what the thread is/could be about, and/or a quote from the first post.

Suggested Name: Blake Stewart
Suggested PB: Michael C. Hall
Position: Bakery Owner, Head Baker

Spoiler

Suggested Name: Zachary Collins
Suggested PB: Peter Billingsley

Suggested PB: Jenna Dewan
Position: Player's choice (maybe something important)
Details: Mother to the twins Jamie Collins and Alex Lin. She was abandoned by her husband when the kids were 8 for some unknown reason and was left to bear the financial burden all by herself. It's implied she's still in love with him regardless.

Adoptables for Evelyn McCarthy-Parsons:

Spoiler

Suggested Name: Jonah Porter
Suggested PB: Alexander Dreymon
Position: Player's choice
Details: In the first few years after Evelyn McCarthy-Parsons' mother died, her father, Seth McCarthy, went absolutely haywire mentally. This also caused him to sleep with a number of women in hopes of finding comfort. This is one of the two offspring of such an endeavor.

Suggested Name: Gretchen Porter
Suggested PB: Jennifer Carpenter
Position: Player's choice (maybe something important)
Details: In the first few years after Evelyn McCarthy-Parsons' mother died, her father, Seth McCarthy, went absolutely haywire mentally. This also caused him to sleep with a number of women in hopes of finding comfort.

Suggested Name: Justine Harris
Suggested PB: Taylor Momsen
Position: Player's choice
Details: In the first few years after Evelyn McCarthy-Parsons' mother died, her father, Seth McCarthy, went absolutely haywire mentally. This also caused him to sleep with a number of women in hopes of finding comfort. This is one of the two offspring of such an endeavor.

Suggested Name: Jaqueline Harris
Suggested PB: Michelle Williams
Position: Player's choice (maybe something important)
Details: In the first few years after Evelyn McCarthy-Parsons' mother died, her father, Seth McCarthy, went absolutely haywire mentally. This also caused him to sleep with a number of women in hopes of finding comfort. This is one such woman, whom ended up shouldering the full responsibility of raising the ensuing offspring without Seth, taking care of her daughter without knowing of other women in her situation.

Suggested Name: Patrick Parsons
Suggested PB: Rami Malek
Position: Player's choice (definitely something important)
Details: Evelyn McCarthy-Parsons' husband. He is, in truth, her singular close friend and partner in crime - they have similar goals in life, the main being consolidation of power. They married each other for political stability and status, though to the public they're just a couple very much in love. They've adopted a daughter together.

 

Adoptables for Samantha & Keira Hammond:

Spoiler

LINK: https://www.tallygarunga.com/npcs-wanted-characters/michael-sherman-r35/
Suggested Name: Michael Sherman
Suggested PB: Jacob Tremblay
Position: Whitlam Bilby Student
Details: Keira Hammond's and Junior Sherman's first born son. His mother has custody but his father is extremely present, and he's residing in the Whitlam Bilby wing of Tallygarunga most of the time (and the Hammond household of his branch when not). His parents got divorced. How is he adjusting?

Suggested Name: Jason Sherman
Suggested PB: Noah Jupe
Position: Whitlam Bilby Student
Details: Keira Hammond and Junior Sherman's second son. His mother has custody but his father is extremely present, and he's residing in the Whitlam Bilby wing of Tallygarunga most of the time (and the Hammond household of his branch when not). His parents got divorced. How is he adjusting?

Suggested Name: Junior Sherman
Suggested PB: Zachary Levi
Position: Player's choice (probably something important)
Details: Keira Hammond's ex-husband, a pureblood wizard. They seemed to part on good terms and he still is very much a friend of the family. He willingly let Keira take custody of his children due to being a workaholic and fearing being unable to give them a proper upbringing; regardless, he still visits them as often as he can. He has no idea that his whole marriage was a lie.

Suggested Name: Shreya Hammond
Suggested PB: Brie Larson
Position: Keira Hammond's video editing aide + player's choice
Details: The second of four kids from Colin Hammond's branch of the family that is known to reproduce like rabbits. She is 23 and is living with her older sister, Keira, in Melbourne. The two seem to be keeping a very big secret from the rest of the family, especially from Samantha's all-knowing tendencies: the fact they're in an illegal physical relationship.

Suggested Name: Landon Hammond
Suggested PB: Ben Hardy
Position: Player's choice (likely in VMU for something)
Details: The third of four kids from Colin Hammond's branch of the family that is known to reproduce like rabbits. He is 19 and is living in Melbourne. It must be quite strange to be a man in a family of Veela descendants...

Suggested Name: Barbara Hammond
Suggested PB: Amber Heard
Position: Player's choice (probably something important)
Details: She's a Veela that passes for a pureblood witch for anyone outside of her family. She's embraced the quirkiness of the Hammonds in full. She took on the tradition of creating a big family with glee, spawning four tiny Hammonds (Keira, Shreya, Landon and Samantha) and having two grandchildren already (Michael and Jason). She stopped having children to keep the public unaware of the fact she's not human.

Suggested Name: Colin Hammond
Suggested PB: Kurt Russell
Position: Player's choice (likely something important)
Details: The patriarch of his particular branch of the massive Hammond family, a branch that is thought to be pureblood still. He's upheld the tradition of a large family, spawning four children (Keira, Shreya, Landon and Samantha), whom have themselves birthed two grandchildren (Michael & Jason Sherman). He goes to great lengths to ensure nobody else finds out his wife is a Veela so not to endanger them all.


Adoptables for Rachel Ryan:

Spoiler

Suggested Name: Ashton Ryan
Suggested PB: Sarah Rafferty
Position: International Wizarding Police (any capacity)
Details: The mother of Rachel Ryan. She and her husband spent their lives moving all over the world because of work - this made it so they unintentionally neglected their child. Now they've been assigned to Australia, and enrolled their daughter in Tallygarunga, promising her it's the last permanent move.

Suggested Name: Emmanuel Ryan
Suggested PB: Damian Lewis
Position: International Wizarding Police (any capacity)
Details: The father of Rachel Ryan. He and his wife spent their lives moving all over the world because of work - this made it so they unintentionally neglected their child. Now they've been assigned to Australia and enrolled their daughter in Tallygarunga, promising her it's the last permanent move.


Adoptables for Meadow Richards:

Spoiler

Suggested Name: Terry Richards
Suggested PB: Travis Fimmel
Position: Player's choice (likely something important)
Details: Meadow and Jewel Richards' father. Not the best person in the world - he is a pureblood supremacist from a prestigious family whom firmly believes in the power of status and blood purity, and threatens to disown either daughter if they ever fail to meet expectations.

Suggested Name: Ava Richards
Suggested PB: Amy Acker
Position: Player's choice (likely something important)
Details: Meadow and Jewel Richards' mother. Not the best person in the world - she is a pureblood supremacist from a prestigious family whom firmly believes in the power of status and blood purity, and threatens to disown either daughter if they ever fail to meet expectations.

Suggested Name: Jewel Richards
Suggested PB: Rachel Brosnahan
Position: Player's choice
Details: Meadow Richards' older sister, Jewel was born to a very prestigious family and blood supremacist parents. Did she escape the Richards family and get disowned? Did she comply, either because she actually liked what was demanded of her or because she was too scared not to? Does she want to keep her sister from that fate or does she think Meadow should buckle down and just go through with it?

 

Adoptables for Shane Robbins:

Spoiler

Suggested Name: Simon Malone
Suggested PB: Tom Cruise
Position: Player's choice
Details: A member of a family renowned for their inheritable bad luck curse. This man should have no idea he spawned offspring after a one night stand, but what if he heard of a man half his age with bad luck rivaling his?

Suggested Name: Hillary Robbins
Suggested PB: Carla Gugino
Position: The Tipsy Mozzie bar owner
Details: Shane Robbins' mother, and the strongest person he knows. She's raised him by herself from birth regardless of how many difficulties they faced. She owns a fairly popular bar among both Muggles and wizards, The Tipsy Mozzie.


Adoptables for Natasha Roberts:

Spoiler

Suggested Name: Hala Patel
Suggested PB: Florian Munteanu
Position: Local Dojo Instructor
Details: A man evading pursuit over his halfbreed heritage. He never told his children they have Fae blood in their veins, and is taking active measures to stay hidden (changed his identity, made sure his children had English names and a less traditional upbringing to thwart their curiosity, hid in a small town, etc). He is a martial arts teacher in the Stewart family dojo. He had to live through the freak death of his first born.

Suggested Name: Harper Luna
Suggested PB: Jennifer Aniston
Position: Player's choice
Details: This is a woman whom fell in love with Hala Patel, although it didn't last forever. They had three children - Neil, Sebastian and Natasha. Their marriage was falling apart by the time Natasha was born, and Harper proved to be a very uncaring and cold individual through it all. She took the girl with her because she was the only one displaying magical capabilities, and didn't seem to care much about the news of her first-born being dead. She's remarried since and has a step-daughter which undergoes the same brand of treatment that Natasha does.

Suggested Name: Sebastian Roberts
Suggested PB: Vivian Dsena
Position: Local Dojo Instructor
Details: The second child of a trio, but the oldest - his brother, Neil, passed away in a freak accident. He is a squib and grew up with Neil. They were likely close. How has he digested his brother's death after four years? How is he dealing with his younger sister's attempt to re-approach them after being away for so long?

Suggested Name: Nolan Luna
Suggested PB: Hrithik Roshan
Position: Chief Auror - Narragyambie Station
Details: A man of importance in the wizarding community, he was transferred to work in Narragyambie a few years ago. He has a daughter and a step-daughter whom are the same age. While probably not as strict as his wife, he does allow for the bullying to happen.

Suggested Name: Angelina Luna
Suggested PB: Priyanka Chopra
Position: Player's choice (possibly in college)
Details: The daughter of Narragyambie's chief Auror, she's been graduated from Tallygarunga for roughly a year now. There's a lot expected of her, more so considering her step-sister has effectively dodged all said expectations by refusing to go to college and moving out.

Suggested Name: Roxana Lee
Suggested PB: Deepika Pakudone
Position: Player's choice
Details: A pureblood witch and Angelina Luna's mother. She's divorced from the Chief Auror of Narragyambie. She's somewhat up in arms regarding the treatment her daughter is enduring from her step-mother (and in extension also worried about what the step-sister is subjected to as well). Maybe she should butt in.

 

Adoptables for Danielle Haynes:

Spoiler

Suggested Name: Andrea Haynes
Suggested PB: McKenna Grace
Position: Tallygarunga Student
Details: Danielle Haynes's adopted little sister, and a Dhampir. They are both in the adoption system together. She's about to enter Tallygarunga's first year. Danielle is watching over her, but she's scared of what sort of effect the death of two separate sets of parents will do to this little girl's mind - they were chased over a Dhampir family blood feud and were ultimately cast out for their own safety, knowing nothing but war until present times.

 

Adoptables for Lisa Knotley:

Spoiler

Suggested Name: Eddie Knotley
Suggested PB: Taron Egerton
Position: Player's choice
Details: His mother passed away when he was a kid, victim to Dragon Pox; his father died on duty as an Auror a little while after Eddie graduated from Greyheme. Orphaned, he was left with the responsibility of looking after his sister, Lisa, regardless of his situation. It's been a couple years since then. She rarely visits so not to be a burden to him. How is he dealing with all of this?

Suggested Name: Jane Reid
Suggested PB: Thea Sofie Loch Næss
Position: Tallygarunga Student
Details: Formerly a Penrose student, she was secretly involved with Lisa Knotley when the latter was still in that academy, and was also her roommate. She ended up having her memories altered by Lisa without her knowledge or consent - their relationship was hidden in her mind. Is the charm still in effect? Will feelings stir up again if she doesn't remember? If she does, does she hate Lisa for hiding such an important part of their past? Why is she in Tallygarunga?

Suggested Name: Hailey Kennedy
Suggested PB: Zoë Kravitz
Position: Tallygarunga Student - Sturt House
Details: Formerly Lisa Knotley's roommate. The two became very close as Hailey helped her deal with the grief of losing her father. Despite this, she endured a sizable humiliation - she suffered an extremely one sided defeat against Lisa herself, whom ruthlessly cast her aside in order to achieve success. She decided not to speak to her since and has moved to another room. A year later, does she still hold a grudge and wants to humiliate her as well? Or does she want to forgive her?


Adoptables for Diana Sharpe:

Spoiler

Suggested Name: Gideon Sharpe
Suggested PB: Jacob Hopkins
Position: Tallygarunga Student
Details: A boy about to start his fourth year in Tallygarunga, he's under Diana Sharpe's legal guardianship. He was uprooted from Mildura without his consent and taken to Narragyambie, and now his sister works herself to death to make sure he's provided for.

Suggested Name: Kyle Fairgood
Suggested PB: Richard Madden
Position: Player's choice
Details: He and Diana Sharpe are thick as thieves and they've known each other since their early Tallygarunga years. They've helped each other through more things than they can count (some of which illegal) and are there for one another no matter what.

Suggested Name: Amalea Evans
Suggested PB: Margot Robbie
Position: Player's choice
Details: Diana Sharpe introduced her to her best friend, Kyle, after quickly befriending her when they were both in college. Amalea and Kyle have been together ever since. Quite unfortunate, since Diana's head over heels for this girl for the better part of four years - even before she introduced the two.

Suggested Name: Austin Mackey or Juliana Mackey (depending on gender)
Suggested PB: Joseph Mazzello or Vanessa Kirby
Position: Player's choice
Details: Someone whom had feelings for Diana Sharpe when she was still in Mildura to complete her Muggle education. They watched as she disappeared overnight, both from the premises and everyone's memories. What happened to her? Why can't they get over her? What are they going to do once they find out where she is?

Have fun with these ;)

Adding:

Suggested Name: Alyona Parsons
Suggested PB: Sabrina Carpenter
Position: Tallygarunga Student
Details: A girl born in a rural town. Her parents met an untimely end and she was put in an orphanage. At some point in her life, magic manifested. During a particularly strong involuntary outburst the town turned against her. Evelyn McCarthy-Parsons happened to be swinging by on complete accident so she decided to rescue her, adopt her, and raise her in a loving home ever since. This girl doesn't seem aware of the shady dealings her adoptive parents are involved with...
