A JAMJAR MEME
Wizards of all ages and from all times: whatever you were doing, wherever you were - none of that matters now. You've been brought to Hogwarts, school of witchcraft and wizardry. You’ll find yourself in the Great Hall under a starry sky, illuminated by the light of a thousand candles.
What happened? Why were you brought here? How were you brought here? All questions to be answered, perhaps. But first, mingle with your kind and find a seat for yourself. This will be your home for a while.
Sorting to houses & Start-of-term feast
Those of you who have not been sorted into your houses, you're guided to sit on a stool while an old hat will contemplate a proper house for you. After, you can join your housemates at their long table.
The ghost of the headmaster, Albus Dumbledore, will soon give a speech once the last student is sorted...
"The very best of evenings to you! Now… to our new students, welcome. To our old students, welcome back! Another year full of magical education awaits you…"
Hop on over to the Harry Potter Dressing Room and come mingle.
Hogwarts: jamjar will be a no-commitment but continuous "storyline" jamjar meme that'll be posted at least once a month with updates to the story.
If you're posting memes which overlap with scheduled memes at bakerstreet, please make sure the cross-posting links to this comm follows the schedule here.
Going forwards, memes that are consistently linked early will be deleted without warning.
|There’s no real push to your actions; you do them as if they were second nature. Perhaps, initially, you were assigned this role, as protector and guardian of this person. Maybe you took it on because there was no one else. A natural guardian or not, good or evil, you caught a shining to them and felt…something. Something hard to explain, but you want to keep them safe and happy - or at the very least, content. No one is as dedicated to them as you. You want them to reach their goals; to help them achieve them, you'll do what you must, even if it means being their gofer or their right hand.|
But most of all, you don't want them to end up like you. They're worth more than that.
Yet somehow, along the line, you became more to them, more than just their protector. You protect them anew and you've found a different way to make them happy. It's selfish, too, because you love them in your way and you want them more than anything. You may feel guilty, of course. They don't, though, and that's what matters.

For most people, the lines between platonic and romantic are very clearly drawn. Not true for you two; friendship and romance intermingle in your relationship, and to be honest, it's hard to discern where one ends and the other begins. You're bosom buddies. There's a spark between you. You're lovers, too, maybe, or it could be completely innocent. You're love interests. You're intimate, you're close, you're ride or die. You don't understand why romantic and platonic can't coexist. You don't need labels.
HOW TO PLAY
( UNDER THE CUT )
Everyone shows their fondness for someone in different ways, as unique as a fingerprint. When it comes to you, you way of expressing your feelings, whether straightforward or complex, platonic or more, is loyalty. Actually, more like devotion, bordering on the complete. Some may find that too much, yet to you, there's no other possibility. Because when it comes to that one person? They've earned your dedication, through their acts or their nature, which means there's nothing you wouldn't do or weather for them.

ICE CREAM PARTY MEME
Consider this: ice cream. Whether it's dairy ice cream or almond milk or a popsicle or one of those rad ninja turtle pops with a bubblegum eye that's sticking halfway down its cheek, ice cream is great. It heals all ills. Now consider this: your character and ice cream. We know, right? Here are some really simple ideas to get you started. Maybe you're crying and eating ice cream with your bestie over a Pixar film, having a party with an ice cream buffet, working in an ice cream shop, trying weird flavors, or laying out by the pool trying to keep cool, ice cream will never let you down. Enjoy a sweet treat!
The fact that you're in a relationship with this person isn't public knowledge. Actually, no one knows about it except for the people involved. Maybe you guys are just private like that; on the other hand, it may be a necessity to keep things a secret from others. Maybe you're both team mates, and others on the team would give you grief, or you're not suppose to be dating, or you're not the type to usually date and you're only testing the waters. Perhaps it's the combination of you two, possibly an odd couple, that would bring some controversy or some teasing. Or, you know, you could not want to deal with friends and relatives being busybodies. Your reasons are your own.
Are you content with stealing moments to be together as a couple? Do you want to make your relationship known and the fact that you can't drives you batty? Remember, there are lots of benefits to dating in secret. You can be yourselves completely, away from prying eyes, and get to know each other better as potential longterm romantic partners. In a way, it's ideal.
...still, do you ever wish you could scream from the rooftops how much you care for your significant other?

Of all the places in this world, there's nowhere worse you could be than where you are now. You're in hell - metaphorically or literally - and laying down and just dying seems more and more like the valid action to take. But you can't go any lower and death could be a no escape. There's only one thing keeping you from being a jaded, broken husk: you've fallen in love with someone who shares this fate. It's a love so different than the norm, that only those who've known this desolation can fathom. Perhaps they give you hope, they're an innocent worth keeping safe, they showed you unexpected kindness, or they're simply something to cling to. No matter what, you'll protect them and you wouldn't dream of leaving this place without them. They will leave, though...
...even if you don't.

HOW TO PLAY
There's a long precedent in folklore and myth of beautiful young people - both men and women - being kidnapped by monsters: dragons, beasts, goblins, demons, elves, vampires, wolves, or even evil humans. In the end, however, these prisoners are almost always rescued and brought back to civilization to live a normal and happy life.
But what if they didn't want to leave their jailor?
They've seen behind the surface and have begun to sympathize with this "monster;" no, more than that, they've fallen for them. Will this story have a happy ending? Will the monster believe that anyone could love them? Most importantly, though, can the two of them be left alone without any attempts at a "rescue?"
how to play
1. Post to the meme.
2. Find somebody to eat with. Figure out why the hell you'd do this to yourself.
3. I don't think they have the Hobbit menu anymore, fuck. Maybe you should ask the waiter or something.
