ebullient. amiable. magnanimous.


CLARISSE. This girl might just be the most genuine and friendly person you ever meet. You will never find anyone as trusting or as kind-- though she's still young so hey, the world may corrupt her yet. Until then, however, she remains sweet, hard-working, and loyal. She tends to be a glass half-full kind of person in regards to both life and people. While some would argue it's better to assume the worst of people she does her best to give others the benefit of the doubt. In general, if you're nice to people, people will be nice back. Short answer is just don't go around being a jerk and maybe people aren't as bad as you think. Heck, you might even find a few...

FRIENDS. As far as making friends goes, considering her nature, you'd think that Clarisse would be good at it... She should have a plethora of people she can lean on, talk to or even just spend time with. A collection of people she trusts, and who trust her, right...? Unfortunately for her, that is not the case. Not, however, for a lack of effort. Clarisse has worked tirelessly for years to establish a reputation of being open and supportive. Despite her efforts, the fates seem to be stacked against her, and as it stand now she is something of a social outcast. People tend to be driven away by the subtle but noticeable air to her that just makes her seem 'off'. Though plenty want nothing to do with her she offers a shoulder to cry on, as well as an open mind, heart and ear for any who might need it. Even when she does form relationships, they hardly seem to last.

People seem to forget about her and move on, or just put her on the back burner, treating her as if she'll always be around. That being said, even when shrugged off she'll make efforts to be the supportive friend one might want or need. She'll wait, and she won't speak up or put pressure, out of both a respect for one's own choices and priorities, as well as out of fear of driving them further away. Even though she will always try to be there it's hard not to feel hurt or used when she is discarded and ignored. Even still, she doesn't let experiences such as that dampen her view of people or quell her hope that maybe someday, someone will value her as much as she values them. Still she treasures friends more than some do gold or galleons, and when they come along she is ecstatic, even if they don't stay for very long... Along with the friends that come her way, now and then life seems to want to balance its good out with bad, and it always seem to deal one or two...

ENEMIES. I don't know how you did it and I'm not sure why, but a round of applause goes to you... There are very few people she would consider enemies, regardless of what they have done to her. Clarisse herself can take something of a beating, verbally, physically and even emotionally. If you happen to be one dealing out said beating, even then she'll likely consider the person unpleasant or troubled as opposed to evil or unwholesome. That being said, this is only for one's treatment of herself. If someone were to treat a friend, or even a stranger so cruelly she would have a far more compromised opinion on them. Clarisse has a great dislike for bullies as a general rule and when she witnesses anything of the sort she will always interfere, after all--speaking from experience--nothing is a greater way to fight darkness and rot than by exposing it to the light.

Honestly, the word enemy is rather harsh. There is always practices that she disapproves of, but as far as active opposition there really isn't anything she dislikes or find repulsive that any decent person wouldn't. The fact is, this girl hating anything would be the equivalent of suddenly relying on a muscle that has never been used before... she probably wouldn't do it very well. Though not impossible for her to hate anyone, it seems likely that once she were to become practiced at it, it would become far easier to hate a good many aspects of her life. As it stands now, it's likely more people consider her an enemy rather than the reverse, seeing as opposition and bullies can come from no where, and plenty of people dislike others for no real reason at all... That being said foes sometimes seem more numerous than they are. Some people can seem cold when really, they don't have any extreme feeling toward you whatsoever, these are the...

OTHERS. The saying 'strangers are just friends you haven't met yet' is one that Clarisse likes to hold close to her heart. The nameless, the faceless and the undistinguished individuals that pass her by aren't nobodies, as much as they are opportunities. Blank slates that house endless options. Clarisse will always smile as she goes through her day and she's the type to stop and help in the hallway if she sees someone drop their belongings. In fact, as a general rule Clarisse has always been kind to strangers, almost without exception. She just doesn't see the value of treating everyone coldly or understand why people so often feel the need to act like they have a chip on their shoulder, especially when meeting new people. She figures she always ought to put her best foot forward and hopefully get to know whoever she's interacting with reasonably well. She'll always try to be warm and welcoming, and just friendly overall. After all, you never know when you might stumble across a new friend, or even the right person and end up as...

LOVERS. Let's be frank here, Clarisse has never been in anything close to a romantic relationship, seeing as she struggles enough to make lasting friends that shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone really. That being said, it isn't really something she thinks about or lingers on for particularly long. Like everyone she's had her crushes, but they were pointless. She knew it, and she kept them to herself in the hope sparing both her feelings, as well as whatever relationship they had between them. Sure, now and then the thought of constant companionship crosses her mind, and makes her feel strangely warm inside. Walking by and seeing a boy and a girl in each others arms in some secluded hallway makes her flush and avert her eyes, hurrying away. Sometime, however, her stomach will flutter as she catches herself wondering if anyone would ever see her like that and what it would be like... Thoughts like that are disregarded quickly as overly ambitious and fantasy, after all the girl is more than aware of the effect she has on people and she expects that she will be lonely for a long time.

That being said, she finds herself holding onto the hope that maybe it won't be forever. There are of course, other things that keep her at bay as well, one being the value she puts in trust and honesty. It's not a distrust of her peers or anyone for that matter that keeps her hesitant, it's her own inability to confide even if she could find someone to be with. Her life, her family, her very nature are all things that she would never be able to disclose without risking everything, and because she can't afford to be completely honest she hesitates in trying at all... Doom and gloom aside, if Clarisse were to be in a relationship she would probably be the most doting, loving and eager to please partner to exist. As she is now, she'd likely be bashful and nervous at even a peck on the cheek, but comfort is something that comes in time for the right person she would really do anything.Any little thing she could do to make them happier she'd do it in a heartbeat. She's a people pleaser, and would go to any length to make the person she holds in the highest regard, truly happy.

Relationships
A list of those that Clarisse has had the pleasure of interacting with and getting to know a little better in her time at Hogwarts. Some interactions are on a more frequent basis than others, andd some are more friendly than others but good or bad, they all play a part in her time here, and she values them each in her own way.
Jayden Everdragomir
Confectionally Antipathetic
The infamous Bulgarian Dragon is someone who Clarisse is pretty well acquainted with, relatively speaking that this. When he transferred to Hogwarts back in fourth year he was even more unapproachable than he is now, if you can believe it. Regardless, to make him feel more welcome Clarisse went about baking him a set of chocolate chip cookies, as is tradition for the girl. She greeted him warmly and offered him the tin, with a suspicious and cold set of narrowed eyes, he made a harrowing statement about not liking cookies, or sweet things in general. She was horrified and after snacking on some cookies and giving the rest away she went about trying to customize a particular kind of gingerbread and minimizing the sugar in it. As she makes them now they’re especially soft and chewy, and the slight spice tends to distract from the already subtle sweetness. She got a roommate of his to deliver them with a small note, and for awhile that was the end of it. They’d see each other around school, but it was void of anything aside from simple pleasantries on Clarisse’s part. Waves, smiles and the occasional ‘Good morning Mr. Everdragomir’ were all that were exchanged, and that’s the way it has remained until now.
Favorite Cookie: He doesn’t like sweets.
Shapeshifter Extraordinaire
A quiet Slytherin that Clarisse has known since first year, albeit not very well. The two have interacted or passed the other by when the House Dueling Captains arranged a confrontation with other Houses or through the practice sessions of the Hogwarts Orchestra. He stood out in his own way, distant and lonely, acting like something of a wallflower. Though she has approached him on a couple of occasions, when she would make efforts he seemed to respond and act in a friendly manner only out of common courtesy rather than genuine interest. Knowing when she’s not wanted, she never did make active efforts to persist, but like always she tried to be amiable. This year however, the boy seems to be more open, and though she isn’t quite sure what sparked this change she’s glad to see it.
Favorite Cookie: Walnut Crescent
Dmitry Voronin
Raina Summers
Chocolate Enthusiast
A dormmate and fellow duelist within Hufflepuff, these girls have been around and aware of each other for years now. They attend some of the same classes and see each other on a regular basis, even having dueled one another a couple times. The two have never been particularly close but Clarisse enjoys her company when she is graced with it, finding her cool and sometimes prickly nature endearing. At dueling club itself, Raina always seems to take note of Clarisse setting the cookie tins on a side table. Though she seems to enjoy the cookies, she questions them. The conversation usually goes something along the lines of Raina remarking on the fact that she always brings them, sounding almost begrudging about it. In response Clarisse would simply smile and ask if she wanted her to stop, while offering a cookie to the girl. The other girl’s eyes would dart between the outstretched cookie tin and Clairsse’s smiling face. Silence would hang in the air, followed by the sound of chewing.
Favorite Cookie: Triple Chocolate Chunk
Kindness Incarnate
Another fourth year transfer to grace the Halls of Hogwarts. While one went off to the Slytherin dungeons, the other was welcomed warmly by her fellow Hufflepuffs in their basement dwelling. As she always did, Clarisse approached the transfer with a tin of fresh cookies in order to welcome her to the school and told her if she needed anything Clarisse would be willing to help. She seemed to take the gift warmly, and then proceeded to hand her a plushy shaped like a loaf of bread. For a moment Clarisse didn’t understand, seeing as she hadn’t ever received a gift in return she was somewhat taken aback. The girl remembers just standing there, staring at it and feeling an overwhelming sense of happiness flooding into her, the corners of her eyes burned just slightly. She couldn’t meet the Transfer students eyes, at least not yet, and worried about coming off as rude because of it. So instead she broke her rule, and hugged her, however briefly.

She could only hope the chill of her skin wasn’t too noticeable. With a thank you, and a reaffirmation of how she was there to help the two parted ways. That night, while curled up under her bed Clarisse lay awake staring at the plush, her eyes welled up with happy tears and she hugged the plush close. The girl has slept with in every night since... The following day, Clarisse made sure to complete her shadow ritual early with Song, so she wouldn’t have to worry about accidently locking eyes with the transfer student later on and having the girl see too much. Once she’d seen her fear, and her eyes flickered back to normal Clarisse stepped out of the curtains of the four poster bed that she’d been hiding in. She thanked her again, and stressed how much she loved the stuffy, promising she’d get her something even better. Since then the two will go about exchanging presents or notes, hiding them in books, at the foot of beds. The tradition continues even now, and every time Clarisse comes across a note or a gift her heart swells happily.

Glesni Carrow
Casual Acquaintance
The pair have had numerous friendly interactions in the previous year upon the Carrow girl’s arrival at the school. The two first met when Glesni transferred to Hogwarts part way through the fifth year. Clarisse presented her with a batch of cookies, as she does with all transfers in hopes of making them feel more welcome. The pair share some classes, hobbies and clubs, despite that they have remained very casual in their relationship. Naturally, Clarisse will greet her in passing, and maybe stop for a short conversation--if either of them aren’t in any particular rush.

Anice Runeswell
Keith Grayson
Familiar Face
A Gryffindor boy two years her junior. Though he’s a face she’ll recognize when passing in the hallway their exchanges rarely, if ever, go beyond a friendly smile and a small wave in passing. She knows very little about the Grayson boy, seeing as the two have had little interaction beyond their initial meeting at one of the intersectional house dueling club meetings in her fifth year. Clarisse had only just taken on the role of dueling 2IC, and before the club events had started the students were given time to warm up, wander around and socialize. During this time, the Captains were concerning themselves with organization, leaving their 2nd’s to deal with questions and concerns that their peers might have. At the time Clari was simply wandering about the room with a cookie tin in hand, scanning the crowd as newcomers trickled in through the door. Admittedly, the Gryffindor boy had caught her eye, the way that outsiders sometimes do. He seemed a little distant, and was notably less sociable that his red and gold clad peers. Not only that, but the boy was a fresh face she hadn’t seen before, and so she walked over, offered him a cookie. The blonde welcomed him warmly and mentioned that if he had any questions, to ask the Captains, or herself and they’d be happy to help. They spoke for a short while longer before she apologetically dismissed herself and continued on with her other responsibilities, and that was that. Recently however, the girl seems to be catching sight of him more and more... though that's probably just in her head.

Proficient Potioneer
For years potions has been a class with which she struggled. While Clarisse wasn’t the kid who would blow up the entire classroom, everything she brewed was always a little off, whether it be the effect, flavor, or even the color. Often they would complete their desired purpose, but come with a few extra symptoms, such as making the one unlucky enough to ingest it sick for a couple of hours. She never was quite sure, but something about her technique seems to be what throws her off. Too often she’ll associate potions with cooking or baking, both of which she is pretty skilled at, when they have their own differences. In potion brewing there is no room for error or deviance, whereas in the kitchen you can play it by ear, you can add or abstain based on knowledge and experience. No matter how hard she would try it always wound up wrong somehow, as if she had some kind of mental block. It was in her fourth year that she was saddled with him as a partner. The professor just couldn’t take another year or needing to watch her closely.

At least not when there was an entire classroom or potential problems so instead they paired the girl up with the Rook boy with the hope that he could keep an eye on her, and maybe she could learn something… and indeed she did. While watching how he did it somehow helped, and his few instructions here and there clearly helped in her progress. Steadily after he began to lend his assistance, her grades began to rise, reaching a mediocre minimum. Before this obligatory interaction, Clarisse had always been vaguely aware of him, in the sense that while failing on her own time she’d hear the teacher remark on what a good job he’d done. Though the boy was famous for his skill in brewing there wasn’t really much other reason to interact until it became a necessity. His help carried on throughout their fifth year, and when she scored an ‘E’ on her O.W.L.s she immediately rushed to the kitchens to bake him a cake, knowing without a doubt that she couldn’t have done it without him. She still asks for lessons from him and will sometimes stop by the Potions Club to either practice a bit, or even simply to say ‘Hi’ while dropping off a batch of fresh cookies.

Singing Buddies?

Clar likes singing by the lake, right? I'm not sure if that was mostly at night, or only when she thinks there's no one there, but however it goes I thought we could totally work something out where Stella hears her while swimming and comes over to join her singing or listen and say hello who are you. The creepy aura wouldn't bother her TOO much, though Stella does like to laugh, poor Clar. Failing that, we could also do the thing we happened to discuss in Discord about Clar being forced to transform and Stella witnessing it, possibly, and thinking Clar was a metamorphagus while Clar thinks Stella can hold her breath really long underwater or figures out she's a half-mer, etc. I think both would work, though the first would mean more singing fun! and the second would mean a secret keeper pair of friends. What do you think?

keith grayson + Clarisse Sharpe
I don't think these two would have many chances to interact, considering that they are in different years and in different houses.

The idea I had in mind is that Keith probably has a crush on her because dude, she's really pretty. It's just those crushes from afar, where you don't do anything but watch. I think he would respect the fact she goes really far to do anything to please people, but there is a stark difference: if Keith recognises that his efforts are not returned, he won't bother as well.

Quinn as:

friends

How Q may stand out from being just another simple classmate is his desire to be friendly with all. While Clarisse stands out a bit as an outcast, Quinn outgoingly invites anyone to hang with him and includes as many wandering souls as possible. He is also persistent in keeping close connections and understanding each individual's reasons fully.

The image in my mind was to have Q as that one consistently friendly student who doesn't simply "forget about her and move on". Let me know if you're interested in interacting with my boy! Q's also a major sweet tooth and he would be obsessed with Clarisse's source of baked goods.
