height: 5'4” weight: average (yeah, I'm really not good at weights) general description: Jess is a get up and go sort of person. Sure, she cares about what she looks like, but usually she's just wearing something that she randomly grabbed out of her closet. Her hair color is naturally blonde, but she puts charms on it to look brown sometimes just for a change. She's often covered in bruises from either falling or the results of her full moon experiences. face claim: Jennifer Lawrence

overall Flirty: Jessica tends to be on the flirty side. It's become such a habit that she doesn't even realize she's doing it anymore. She likes people to like her, and being close to people makes her feel good. She doesn't like to be the center of attention, but she does like a little one-on-one attention, and she likes to be admired. What kind of girl doesn't like getting complements? It's just nice. And she's crazy about dating anyway. She does want to find that one person to settle down with, but she likes the whole idea of dating and getting to know the person she's with. And if there's a little flirty-touching going on, she's not going to object.
Submissive...ish: She doesn't really care what the group is doing and she doesn't want to be the one to pick the activity. She isn't the kind to get overly assertive, preferring to just sort of go with the flow. Some people think that that makes her weak, and it is a bit of a weakness at times, but she'd rather everyone be happy than argue all the time. That isn't to say that she never argues – she can yell along with the best of them, but she doesn't like it and only resorts to arguing if it's absolutely necessary. She just doesn't want to make decisions.
Moody: Okay, so it isn't to an extreme, but Jessica can get a bit moody. Sometimes she gets offended easily and one little thing can make her cry. She isn't a big fan of crying, but she has been seen getting a bit weepy on several occasions. She can come off as naive, so naturally, she gets made fun of sometimes. She hates that, but what can she do about it? She usually tries to let it go unless it's something really bad. In any case, she can go from being happy, to sad, to happy again in a very short period of time.
Social: This little Ravenclaw can be a very social person, despite her tendency to just go with the flow. She makes friends easily, keeping them is the hard part because some people tend to not really get her. She enjoys parties and going out, singing and talking with people. She isn't afraid to go up to someone she doesn't know and say hi. She likes making friends, but she doesn't always know if people count her as a friend, so she's likely to say she has few of them. In any case, she can be a very friendly person and is almost always one of the first people to sign up for some sort of event.

mother: Sloan Rivers - muggle father: Fenrir Grayback - werewolf siblings: several half-siblings pets: a bunny at home and a cat named Mavrick at school history: Jessica Nicole Greyback was born on the 12 of August to a muggle woman, Sloan Rivers. Whether she was the product of Fenrir Greyback or not is irrelevant; he claimed her as his daughter because he'd been with Sloan. There was really very little doubt anyway. Sloan was a young woman fresh out of high school and intending on going to a university, a woman not very experienced in that particular field yet. After finding out what exactly Fenrir was, Sloan attempted to call everything off. But the deed was done and she would have a baby. She expected Jessica to be born as some sort of mutation. She thought for sure that the doctors would tell her that her baby looked more animal than human and they should put it out of its misery. Strangely, that made the mother-to-be feel almost relieved – something she would feel guilty for the rest of her life, because Jessica was born completely normal.
While Jessica was a child, Sloan waited for the day when she would make her first change. But that day didn't come. The muggle woman wasn't exactly sure what was supposed to happen, but so far her baby girl seemed to be fine. Aside from the random things that would fall, or the fact that when Jessica wanted something just out of her reach it seemed to fall into her hand. But the weird bits of magic was something that Sloan could life with. Things were fairly normal. That was, until her seventh birthday, when Fenrir mysteriously returned. Sloan had finally finished her schooling (and being a single mother attending a university was by no means easy) and was working at a hospital. When Fenrir appeared one summer, he made sure that Jessica would be a werewolf. He bit her several times and then disappeared once again. Sloan was furious and terrified.
It was a good thing that Sloan had gone into the medical field because Jessica was now making regular changes at the full moon. The pair moved so that their house now sat in an area more out in the country, in an attempt to put Jessica and others as far away from danger as possible. Still, the blonde girl would come home after a change exhausted and looking beaten up. The change was difficult on her. It was just by chance that Sloan finally talked to someone about her daughter, a close friend named Marnie who turned out to be a witch. Marnie introduced something in to their lives called the Wolfsbane Potion. And what a relief that was. Though it didn't seem to affect Jessica the way it should, she did seem to be able to hold onto some part of her humanity during the full moon and she was remembering what she had done afterward.
She got her letter to Hogwarts at the normal time. Sloan was more than happy to let her daughter go since she wasn't equipped to teach her daughter about the world Jessica would need to live in. Jessica got her books early and began to research her father immediately. The result was a horrified Jess. She wasn't excited to go to school now, instead she was worried that she wouldn't fit in. And at first, she didn't. Her last name gave her heritage away, but she had had other half siblings at the school, and after she was sorted into Ravenclaw, people began to loosen up to her.
Jessica quickly began to excel in Charms, and Defense Against the Dark Arts. Despite the fact that she had grown up as a muggle, she was horrible at Muggle Studies. Though she tried her best in Potions, she was only very average at the subject, which was unfortunate because Jessica had dreams of being able to make the Wolfsbane Potion herself so she wouldn't have to rely on other people to do it for her. She became a very social person as well, feeling as though she fit into this world.
The years seemed to fly by. She spent the summers with her mother in the muggle world and then came back to Hogwarts for the school year. She had her first relationship in her fourth year and discovered that she was a very naturally flirty person. Everyone assumed she was a werewolf, so there was nothing to really hide there, and she ventured out to the Forbidden Forest during the full moon, although she was probably supposed to go somewhere else for that. In her fifth year she began thinking about what she wanted to do with her life. She's decided that she wants to be a healer at St. Mungo's because she wants to find a cure for werewolf-ism. She dropped the classes she didn't need and picked up ones she did. She's finally in her seventh year at Hogwarts and has mixed feelings about the prospect of leaving.

For once in her life, Jessica actually wasn't hungry. She was eating anyway, of course, because now she was nervous. She'd gone through almost an entire bag of gummies and there was another one lying at the foot of her bed. The owl had come quite suddenly. One minute Jess was doing homework and the next she was reading a letter from none other than her former boyfriend. Kieran was almost always on Jessica's mind. In fact the bag of gummy brains that was sitting at the foot of the bed had been intended to send him. As a joke. She imagined writing something on parchment to go along with it. Something along the lines ofyou should put this in your head instead of the one you've got floating around in there.Okay, that is not what she had told Charlie she was planning on writing. Charlie had imagined this as some sort of way to get the two of them back together. Truth be told, Jess did want to get back together, but the thought of them breaking up was still just very upsetting.
As she looked over the letter though, Jess couldn't even remember why they had broken up this time. It had to do with some rumor. She remembered that. Kids coming up to her and asking if she realized her boyfriend was sleeping with other people. Jess had never really believed it but the rumors still stung. She debated about meeting him for several minutes. So long that it almost felt like hours. She kept biting at her bottom lip, trying to think about the best way to deal with this. The letter hadn't said much, but she read the words over and over trying to figure out what to do. Well, it was clear that they needed to talk, so after a little hesitation, Jess checked herself in the mirror, grabbed her bag, through the bag of gummy brains into it, and headed out.
The walk didn't take as long as she'd hoped, or maybe things were just sped up because she wasn't sure if she was doing the right thing by meeting Kieran. But part of her really wanted to see him, despite what they were going through. When she got to the shack she started looking for the rooms, finally finding him in one on a couch. But Jess couldn't make herself actually come into the room. Instead she carefully leaned in the doorway, afraid that it was unstable enough that it might crumble and let her fall, not that falling would be anything new for her. She looked at him for a moment and got the gummies out of her bag, then tossed them so they'd land next to him on the couch, not bothering to explain them. “You wanted to talk to me.” It probably should have been a question, but it sounded like a statement. She just hoped he hadn't wanted to yell at her or something. She would have skipped that kind of conversation.
Welcome to Broomsticks & Fire! Feel free to have a look around and ask the staff if you have any questions.
THIS SITE IS CURRENTLY IN THE PROCESS OF BEING REBOOTED WITH A NEW PLOT.
When the plot and site is finished all current members will be emailed/PMed about the site changes and will
have the option of staying or leaving.
Welcome to Broomsticks & Fire! We are a post-potter rpg set in the year 2023.
Things have been pretty peaceful in the wizarding world.
That is, it was peaceful until an attack killed five aurors, one of them being Ronald Weasley,
beloved father, husband, and one third of the trio that had destroyed Lord Voldemort. Sure an auror's
job is dangerous, but to have five killed in one attack is almost unheard of anymore. It has several people
wondering if the Death Eaters are again at large. The Order of the Phoenix has been reactivated and is now being
headed by none other than Harry Potter himself, giving hope that their world can soon return to peace again.
Snow often covers the Hogwarts campus these days. Winter has begun and there is a sharp chill in the air. Better bundle up if you expect
to be going anywhere.

Happy Holidays! As a special treat we have revamped the site. If you notice anything off, let us know. Our new template is best viewed in IE and
We have re-opened the site! Hurrah! As you may have noticed, we have also added a new skin as well. "Love Struck - Second Edit" is the name of
our newest skin. We have kept the layout because it works well for the site. If you want to go back to the original skin, it should be labeled
as "Love Struck." Just a little note, the cbox may look a little out of place on that skin now as we have changed the colors to fit the new skin.
Also, if you haven't noticed. Our IC Cbox has been upgrated, so it now autorefreshes. Keep in mind that the IC is not a subsitute for threading
but a place to play in real time with your characters. Not everything (or anything) that happens in the cbox has to be part of the site plot.
