important note : dear readers, in the last few months i realized the turkish fcs in the rpc has been increased so much and it makes me happy to see them on my dash, in the tags and generally all around the rpc. i just wanted to get something off my chest that has been bothering me a lot as of lately. i made a post about it earlier but i felt the need to make another post about it because it’s happening more often now. people are using names for their muses that don’t make sense in the slightest bit. i've seen more turkish fcs with other names than turkish names and this is REALLY OFFENDING. yes, your muse could've changed their name (which is not a situation as common as rpc wants to believe, especially for the first names) but how can 9 out of 10 muses that i've seen in the rpc change their name? this just means that people don't do researches on their choice of fc and just erase their whole background (and i'm not even talking about the culture yet). please make sure to do research on any choice of your fc. to make it a bit easier picking names for your turkish fc, click here to be directed to a masterlist of first names/click here to be directed to a masterlist of surnames that i made a while ago. if you have any questions, don't hesitate to message me.

❝ THINGS NEVER HAPPEN THE SAME WAY TWICE. ❞
You would think something as tremendous as a temporal rift in space and time would occur by a bang or a clash or, at the very least, a crackle, but that’s not how it happened. There was no explosion. People went to bed in their respective eras, but when they woke up, three generations had collided in a brutal clash. There were wizards from 1980, an era well into the First Wizarding War, several months before the conflict would come to an abrupt halt. There were witches from 2001, an era still rehabilitating from the brutal traumas and horrors of the Second Wizarding War. And finally, there was 2029, an era that had been marked by its peace and prosperity – UNTIL NOW.
People turned to the Ministry of Magic for answers – for solutions – but all they could offer were vows that they were doing everything possible to determine what happened and fix the situation, assigning their unspeakables with the insurmountable task of finding a way to reverse this mess. Until then? Everyone is simply stuck in 2029, expected to live their lives as normally as they possibly can right now.
But the Dark Lord is still at large, with rumors swirling that with three generations of wixen, he is rapidly expanding his army of devoted Death Eaters, invigorated with the knowledge of precisely how he foolishly lost the Second Wizarding War – how Harry Potter and his friends hunted down and destroyed his precious horcruxes, slowly weakening him and draining him of his life force. Fixed on rewriting history in his favor, he intends to rage savage war and spill the blood of his enemies, especially the dauntless and heroic soldiers of the Order of the Phoenix. This is a wizarding world born anew, ripe with bloodshed and terror as Voldemort and his Death Eaters tries to take their dominion.
All is not well anymore. The fate of the Wizarding World may very well be in grave peril. After all, you know what they say: things never happen the same way twice.
TWICE is a Harry Potter private group that combines the Marauders, Trio, and Next Generation eras. This roleplay intends to be a collaborative, welcoming environment that will allow lots of opportunities for member contribution instead of the admin solely deciding where and how the plot progresses. As there is a long list of available canon characters, we are a multi-muse group that allows muns to take up as many characters as they feel they can handle. We also welcome OCs and semi canons. To join, please like this post to be sent a link to the group discord. Even though this is a tumblr roleplay, the discord will function as the roleplay main.
[ Although the canon universe and characters were created by JKR, this roleplay does not support the author or condone her views in any way. The admin is a Jewish, LGBT POC who is mindful of the many issues within the universe, and it is their hope that we can take the world of Harry Potter and make it safe, inclusive and diverse. ]

tucked away in the corners of chicago lies dionysus , a burlesque lounge that has stood as a pillar to the city for decades . while some chicago - ites turn their noses up at the velvet walls and company it attracts , others consider it home . having been open for close to thirty one years now , it was first founded and opened by a miss darla caiazzo , said to have leased the building to take in stray girls wandering the all too dingy and violent streets of wind city for a quick dollar . now , miss darla has handed it down and been laid to rest , but her legacy is carried on by current staff and dionysus family members . despite secrets cluttering the low lit corners , they never linger in the dark for too long . have a drink , grab a night cap and be on your best worst behaviour . welcome to dionysus .
we think this goes without saying at this point, but all drama should be kept in-character. ooc drama, godmodding, and any bubbling/cliquey behavior will not be tolerated. you will only get one warning if we find that you are breaking these rules, and any repeat offenders will not be allowed back in the rp.
muses and muns must be 20+, with absolutely no exceptions.
any major plotlines (including, but not limited to pregnancy or arrests) must be run by the admins first. this should hopefully be obvious, but any plots relating to racism, homophobia, non-con, abuse, etc. are completely off-limits.
we will be doing interest checks once a week, every sunday to ensure that there’s still interest in the roleplay ! you’ll have 24 hours to react to the post, and if you fail to do so you will be kicked from the discord server.
please, do your research when bringing in a muse of color, and / or a trans and / or non-binary muse! remember that your muse’s story should not solely focus on the struggles they face, but their identity should not be completely overlooked! you are not, under any circumstances, allowed to change the ethnicity of your fc for your muse. also, do keep in mind the +5/-5 rule: the age of your fc should be within 5 years of the age of your muse.
fc name , age , gender ╱ welcome to dionysus , FIRST LAST . the POSITION sometimes comes off as NEGATIVE , but also being rather POSITIVE might just be their saving grace in the lounge . if they aren’t behind the bar , or backstage , just look for THREE + AESTHETICS and you’ll be lead right to PRONOUNS , after all . the show must go on . [ ooc name / alias , age , pronouns ]
christina aguilera , 30 , cis female ╱ welcome to dionysus , ALI WHITE . the DANCER sometimes comes off as DRIVEN , but also being rather SELFISH might just be their saving grace in the lounge . if they aren’t behind the bar , or backstage , just look for EVERY COSTUME HAVING FEATHERS , SPENDING MORE MONEY ON SHOES THAN RENT , SAVING THE SHOW WITH HER SINGING and you’ll be lead right to HER , after all . the show must go on .

❝ WITH HOPE OF PROMOTING ( AND STRENGHTENING ) COMMUNITY SPIRIT, a small number of past & present members of the appleby arrows have joined forces with diagon alley businessowners and wix world volunteers to host the appleby autumnfest from october 6th to october 12th ! the 11th annual festival will take place just outside of the village of appleby, and will be protected, week long, by strong muggle repelling charms ! prior festivals have drawn thousands of wix and we are once again expecting a huge crowd to come out and enjoy the food and fun arranged for this year ! a number of exciting events have been arranged, including a blood drive and charity relay on the 10th, all in aid of st mungo’s hospital. come one, come all, and enjoy what autumnfest has to offer you ! ❞
WHO, WHAT, WHEN, WHERE :
the appleby autumnfest ( say that three times fast ) is a celebration of the spookest season endorsed by past & present members of the appleby arrows, located JUST outside of the sleepy little village the dismal quidditch team hails from. running from october 6th to october 12th, inclusive, it’s considered a family friendly precursor of sorts to the halloween celebrations along diagon alley, later in the month.
ministry officials lend their hand to placing a few strong muggle repelling charms over the festival area, which includes three large fields kindly borrowed from their muggle owners for the duration of the event. of course there’s a pumpkin patch ( where you can take home a wheelbarrow of pumpkins made of all shapes and sizes for the tiny asking price of two galleons ), but there’s also an impressive maze made of maize that appears and takes form overnight, and that disappears in much the same fashion at event end. these fields sit either side of the main event area, where wooden boothes sell reasonable priced wares & friendly wix have volunteered to run an impressive number of autumnfest games.
there’s fun for wix of all ages with classic games such as bobbing for crab apples, pin the tail on the thestral, a potato sack race, carved pumpkin golf and a ring toss that sees brave wix trying to loop a plastic hoop onto the many legs of a fake acromantula - and it wouldn’t be half as fun without the opportunity to win some cheap prizes ! when you’ve swung by every booth and given each game a shot, there’s plenty of booths serving the stickiest and sweetest autumnfest treats, so don’t miss the opportunity to wash down a caramel apple and funnel cake with a cup of homemade hot apple cider !
and that’s not all ! this year, the usual fun comes accompanying an opportunity to do good in the form of a spooky scary blood drive in aid of st mungo’s on the 10th, followed ( yes, followed - it’s really rather bad timing, on their behalf ) by a charity relay, with sign up fee and additional donations going straight to the hospital itself in its time of need. volunteers will be randomly paired up and magically tied to one another at the ankle, all the better to participate in several relay style games like a ~ faux ~ dragon egg & shovel race and a gruesome hand - in - pumpkin golden apple search that’ll all, eventually, lead one pair to victory ( and a tacky plastic trophy ) and the rest ... not to victory, anyway, but there’s a 50/50 shot of developing close friendship or seething hatred by the end of it !
OUT OF CHARACTER :
another season, another festival in the spirit of said season ! the appleby autumnfest is one half of october’s lineup, and kicks off yet another opportunity to take part in the noxtms galleon system ! that is, of course, all well and good - but something that was quite important to me was working out a way to have another ‘sign up & get randomly partnered’ opportuntity since our last one was so long ago, and i really hope you guys get as much a kick out of the relay as i’ve had in imagining it ! there’ll be a channel on the discord to put forward names, and your partners will be up by sunday ! please remember, though, that as with all of these arrangements - you will be required to do at least one thread with your partner.
this event officially begins today ( wednesday the 6th ) with the posting of this message !
it will last for two weeks, though you are not currently required to pause any current threads. you’ll be given a heads up if that’s going to change at any point !
all event starters should be tagged nox.event018, and the location is appleby ! don’t forget to keep the galleon system in mind for this event, as threads can earn you points !
if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to message the main with them ! please comment ‘boo’ on this post to show you’ve read it !

in a world where mutants are cloaked in the shadows, new york city makes its mark in history by introducing THE OMEGAS, a special government task force of mutants created to protect civilians. it’s a grandiose first step in integrating mutants into society, but beyond introducing “the world’s first superheroes” to the public lie slivers of mutantkind teeming through history.
before the omegas, there was, and still is, THE ESSEX HOUSE: the now-infamous facility that houses wayward mutants. the controversy revolving around the escape of several mutants, leaving destruction and death in their wake, causing people to wonder what really goes on within those walls.
watching mutant history unfold from a distance are charles xavier and his students, all living in THE XAVIER INSTITUTE. masking as an elite school that rivals the ivy league, it is a sanctuary for mutants, where they can learn how to use their powers for good and pay it forward. the true nature of the xavier institute has been kept a secret for decades because of charles’s belief that non-mutants and mutants aren’t ready to co-exist; however, that has been challenged by recent events.
that, and the looming threat of THE BROTHERHOOD, led by charles’ old friend erik lehnsherr, slowly coming into the light as their numbers grow, readying to introduce themselves to the world as the real champions of the mutant cause.
differing factions, beliefs, and loyalties divide both mutants and non-mutants—and only time will tell what this means for the world.
CHROMOSOME23 is an original character x-men roleplay set in 1997, deviating from the canon following the events of x-men: first class. the roleplay starts with its most recent event, introducing the omegas.
if you’re looking for a relaxed, character development-driven roleplay where you can build on the plot with your muses, be a part of the different chapters of the story, and have little adventures on the side, we’re right here! 👋🏼

lilac / a psd by @englshrose !
bippity boppity boop ! as promised here is a vibrant psd meant for people of color ( but would probably work on anyone ) .
i was inspired by indie aesthetics that can sometimes leave poc out, ‘cause it messes with skin tones sm, so i wanted to find a middle ground ! ( i picture this working well with indie icons as well )
blues are turned into purples & darkened, reds and oranges are edited so that they don’t ‘ orange wash ’ skin tones while also keeping the vibrance and skin tones true to their person !
this should work on both dark and light scenes, and i marked what you should edit to fix any possible faults !
don’t be a d*ck, give this a like or reblog if you use bc i love seeing my work being used !
you can find the psd in the link above or source below !

In collaboration with the performing arts department and various film major volunteers, we’re so ecstatic to officially invite you to the opening of the BRIAR DRIVE IN MOVIE THEATER!
What most students, staff, faculty & alumni have come to know as just a park & parking lot hybrid found on the left wing of campus has now officially been turned into a drive in movie theater, an event that’s been a few months in the making! The space closest to the screen is the grass area, where no cars are allowed, and instead, the school hopes it’ll be full of students on large blankets and chairs as they sit back and watch the movie. Beyond the grass, a little farther from the screen, is the parking lot, with designated spaces for cars to park.
To officially open it, the school is conducting a completely free opening, with food stands all over the area with free food and beverages you’d usually see at movie theater concession stands. There will be a multitude of movies to be shown, ranging from romance to horror, starting at 4 PM until MIDNIGHT on Saturday night and movies from 4 PM TO 10 PM on Sunday night.
After this official opening, the drive in movie theater will show two movies a night from 6 PM TO 10 PM daily. Please check the Briar University blog for the movie titles for the day!
Alcoholic beverages, drugs & smoking are strictly not allowed on school premises and please clean up after yourselves! Please don’t litter the area! Parking spaces are on a first come, first serve basis. All students, staff, faculty & alumni are highly encouraged to join!
OUT OF CHARACTER
While the event in character will go on for the two nights of the weekend, the event will last for an ENTIRE WEEK out of character. That means you have 7 days to make starters, reply to them, make outfit/other musing posts, etc!
Please tag your threads as #ochqevent and #ochqevent01 and please tag our extras blog ( @briaruniversity ) for the event starters so we can reblog them!
Participating isn’t required, but it is highly encouraged!
You may continue with non event threads, but we highly encourage putting priority on event threads!
( While alcohol, drugs & cigarettes aren’t allowed, IC security won’t really be that strict so feel free to have your characters sneak some in wink wink )
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to send us a message!

welcome back, elephants !!
To start the year off on an optimistic note, the administration is hosting a fall fundraiser event on OCTOBER 6TH. Student run booths and carnival games will decorate the heart of the lake near the Luxor campus, and all students and friends are encouraged to attend and donate. Impress your date by testing your strength, enjoy the fried fair food delicacies, and take a gander at your future at the fortune teller booth !! All carnival proceeds will be given to the Orleans, France campus as compensation for the property damages inflicted by the students last year. However, students will be awarded for their hard work with a bonfire at the end of the night !! Free cups of cocoa and smores will be provided to any student who assisted with the fundraiser as thanks for the philanthropic effort, as well as a grand prize for the students who raised the most money for their booths. Raffle tickets will also be sold throughout the night, and prizes will be distributed to the winners following the bonfire. Celebrate the passing of the Fall Equinox, and show off your Luxor colors by coming out to the First Annual Carnival Fundraiser !!
Students will choose between the following booth ideas:
Selling raffle tickets
Some miscellaneous carnival games include:
Water Gun Race
This is a student-run event with the intention of convincing the French campus to host the Luxor students again this year. Students will need to submit TWO CHOICES for a student booth, and they will be paired up with a fellow peer to compete with the other booths. Please send in each of your character’s top two choices for the student booths to the main by OCTOBER 5TH, as this will be how we determine the pairings. The event will begin on OCTOBER 6TH at 3pm EST, beginning with the carnival games. This is a dashboard event, so all event interactions should be tagged appropriately with #luxevent and happen on the dash. The event will continue until OCTOBER 13TH, with an announcement sometime in between announcing the lighting of the bonfire. Please like once you have read !!

THE HEATWAVE IS U N E X P E C T E D .
it’s a disorientating contrast, the dew soaked grass and the clammy heat, cold between your toes as the sun has your shoulders blushing. the morning’s rainfall tends to rise into the air and leave you wading through town like a bowl of hot soup, humid as the outskirts of a particularly lush rainforest. irving has never seen a week in may like this, rare as a treskilling yellow postage stamp or a smile on the face of an early 2000′s emo posting myspace selfies. for the annual founders festival, it’ll be the hottest the town’s ever seen, but that isn’t putting a stop to celebrations. if anything, it’s only setting it up to be the biggest one yet. the air feels ripe with far more possibilities when you don’t have to worry about forgetting a jacket or huddling into the nook of your crush’s shoulder to conserve warmth, although it’s likely you’ll still find some excuse to resort to the latter in the name of “survival” no matter the weather.
WELCOME TO IRVING’S ANNUAL FOUNDERS FESTIVAL.
tours scatter onto the board game of the town like dice throughout the morning and early afternoon. at each historical landmark, a local theatre group come together to perform reenactments. there’s the beached whale of 2003 where they’ll all flop onto the dorado sand in formation. the mayor’s assassination attempt of 1978, often fraught by a gaggle of apprehensive PTA moms who have campaigned on more than one occasion to have this barred from schedule - they eased a little when they switched from corn syrup to red silk handkerchiefs to keep everything a little more respectful and artsy, but their lips still get stiff nonetheless. the anomalous white tailed deer migration of 2011 where a storm nearby meant obstacles to their usual journey and the streets in front of the town hall were overrun. countless, maps handed out plotted with each like pieces of treasure you’re set to forage for. all of the tours are lead by guides, fervently performed, this year providing parasols to protect locals and tourists alike as they refresh on the town’s history, but this still isn’t the main event, more like the appetiser.
the real hub of festivities is in the large park at the centre of town. all of the green is overturned into a bustling musical festival, large stage erected and crowds buzzing with laughter. local bands are enlisted to perform in a jam-packed lineup starting from 4pm. all proceedings from the event (tickets only cost a few dollars) go towards community restoration, mainly focusing on the port apartments mural project and rebuilding the local library still suffering from the ravages of a storm. with fireflies coming early to irving due to the wet and warm spring, congregating on the white poppy hill by lilac ridge, townsfolk organising the event gathered the night before to catch them in mason jars so that hundreds could be arranged in stacks around the stage like captive, dancing tinkerbells. all ages find something to excite themselves with at the park, from spinning by a date’s hand to a cover band classic, drinking yourself dizzy in the miniature beer garden, shutting your eyes and entering another dimension in the silent disco tent or simply sprawling on picnic blankets making daisy chains with your closest friends. the festival tends to get rowdier as 10pm comes and goes to mark the last act of the night, families dispersing and a younger crowd taking prevalence - last year, there was even an issue of scandal when a group of teens got arrested for stealing their math teacher’s car and skidding tires over an elderly woman’s hydrangeas in a perilous joyride. larger events like the founders festival have a way of whipping certain residents into a frenzy, hopped up like toddlers on sherbet.
while not an official, town endorsed tradition, it’s definitely become a concrete one for the more chaotic of irving’s inhabitants to cook up another way to celebrate the town’s founding - after the beer garden calls last orders at 12 and the majority of the town stretches like a tired child after a long car journey, the miscreants make their way down manholes like rats retreating to the sewers, following the tremble of bass to find their path. without fail every year at midnight, a masked rave breaks out through the abandoned underground mining system and upper depths of the sewers. it’s unclear why the mask thing started. maybe originally they had the faces of founders on, some still dotted throughout the night, but it’s evolved into anything and everything. tigers. danny devitos. gold lace like a parisian masquerade. irving’s very own acid warped carnival. once a man pranked everyone by wearing a white rabbit’s costume head and popping out of nowhere to silently stare at them from a distance in the lowest levels. rumour has it, as a result, that the sewers are haunted by the beloved rabbit of a murderous magician. no-one knows if he’ll pop up again but everyone’s always on the look out. it’s best not to wander far, to stick with the masses in the stutters of strobe lights.
this rave has been known to run on past sunrise. infamous for it. not everyone has the stamina to last the whole duration, though, so if you follow a certain route of the sewers long enough, you’ll come out to a clearing ten minutes from abernathy creek, freckled by tents every colour of the rainbow. there’s a sense in the air of slipping through a veil to another dimension, the odd firefly that’s evaded capture strayed to drift around like a fallen star, and inebriated stragglers whirling sparklers before the sun remembers it’s meant to rise, lighting up the dark as it clings to your shoulders like a thick cloak. it can be incredibly disorientating to get lost and wind up here by yourself, though many find themselves crashing in a random sleeping bag if they’re too dizzy to make their way home, a reliable form of solace when you’ve forgotten your own name - there’s something about drifting off listening to the laughter of your neighbour or your childhood friend that’s so unmistakably irving, you almost prefer it to your own bed.
IRVING’S FOUNDERS FESTIVAL will begin on the dash on may 2nd at midnight est and last until may 12th. please tag all starters and corresponding posts (we’d love to see an aesthetic of your muse’s look for the night) with #IRVINGEVENT002. please like this post once you’ve read it.

the year is 1715. pirates are the scourge of the open seas, hunting any ship that may come across their sight line. all those who do business by ship or skiff live in fear of those they have come to know as monsters, but there is one place that they avoid above all else: the darkened shores of new providence island.
what was once known as a new colony for the british empire is now a haven for thieves, whores, and pirates. nassau is a bustling place of commerce, but you’re just as likely to have your purse cut as you are your throat. amongst the sparkling sand, glittering gold, and bright sights that the town has to offer, there lies the gaping maw of those who did not succeed. not every ship wins its bounty, and even fewer get along on the island itself.
but the british empire will not let go of the island so easily; they have farmers in the interior that they are using as leverage, aiming to protect them under the guise of eradicating the grip the pirates have on the island. furthermore, the spanish have always eyed its location and its fort in particular, paying no heed to the pirates themselves. thus begins the battle for nassau, and the glory of the pirates who call it home.
nassau, new providence island: the most notorious criminal haven of its time. welcome to a debauched paradise teeming with pirates, prostitutes, thieves and fortune seekers.

HI AGAIN! i’m back and asking for more partners AND FRIENDS who are willing to write with me on DISCORD. i’m also looking for partners who want to write on tumblr, but writing on discord will be a priority for me right now, since i’m mostly on mobile nowadays! so if you want a partner who’ll annoy you at ungodly hours and will always be around discord not only for headcanons but just to talk to in general, someone who’s very smut-friendly, has no triggers, is more than willing to double up, will play against mostly anyone in any kind of pairing whether they be romantic, platonic or familial, will play any gender, and will spam you with gifsets and muse posts and songs that remind me of our pairings, then like this and i’ll come to you! ♡
