SPH: Where Are They Now?

I've been doing some thinking about my SPH characters, now that a few years have gone by. Here's what I think they're doing five years out from Hogwarts graduation:

Seth: I think he took a mental health break after graduation and just spent a year learning and running the family business...while tracking down Zascha but not being very successful at that. After about a year, he applies to become an auror and is accepted, possibly with some reservations by the DMLE, possibly not.

The way I figure it, he and his friends can't retrieve Erzsebet until they find and secure Zascha. Part of the reason Seth becomes an auror, I think, is to get better access to information he can use to find Zascha. How he and everyone magick Erzsebet back into the present, I have no idea. All I know is that, if they manage it, Seth and Erzse will have to have a lot of very long talks.

If they never do find Zascha, Seth might, after a considerable length of time, start seeing a young woman named Morgana. If possible, I would like to think they all do something to help Nathan recover.

Paul: He has continued to use the Gareth Adams identity. Still married to Lilith, obviously. I think he has probably retired from teaching at Hogwarts, depending on how Voldemort dies in the SPH universe. I think, after the war, Paul will look for work with the Hawkwood Trust, if Lord Hawkwood will have him. As he says in my mind, "I do not wish to spend my life being some DMLE variant of 007."

He still acts as a father to Piotr and Sergei and cherishes his time with Seth--not least because Seth is blessedly normal. (g) I think Seth has figured out his true identity.

Mary Elizabeth: Has opened The Spider Pub in Knockturn Alley. But she's realistic about Greg and will keep him at arm's length if he truly is a dedicated Death-Eater after the war--'Cause her father would tan her hide if she weren't. :P

Daeren Alexander: Still a doctor and a healer, still working at St. Mungo's and assisting the Hawkwoods on the side. Still has not convinced Diotima Ridenow that she's too good for Lew Alton.

Artemisia and Petrus Graves: Retired to Iona and are living happily ever after.

Elizabeth Townsend Graves: She has maintained correspondence with Snape, if Snape is still alive in this AU. More than that is up to the two of them.


How delightful to have this update.

I wonder who Megan would have ended up with? Raphael I would hope if Nathan never recovered.

Still hits me in the heart when I think about them all.

Strange timing - I've been thinking about them too. Melancholy - been missing them.

Everything was so complete with Rose in SPH by the end. I wanted to let her have that time - healing, I guess. Since she and Jake planned their great big adventure in Thailand. She's been quiet for years. Until recently - we've been missing marvo together.

I reckon Raphael would have done his growing up eventually. And then, who knows? He'd be philosophical about it - but I seem to remember some of the lessons he learnt about love and life would have stuck. Easier to predict with him because at least he was my character, if an independent one - Rose was very much Rose's character.

Rich--LOL! Yes, Rose very much had/has a mind of her own. :) I miss her, Raph, and Simon. It'd be neat to do something with that Black Shuck story-thread that sort of got started while Paul was in Seth's mind but didn't go much beyond that. (Paul was fascinated. I'm having to remind him that he's not in Seth's head anymore.)

I would love to see Rose's and Jake's Adventure in Thailand.


Every now and then I wonder where my kiddies are, but I don't really want to do a JKR and write a tacky epilogue. It was a magical time and I can't believe we wrote as we did and I know I'll never get any of that back.

I'm sure Jake/Darius and Rose speak fluent Thai by now, or have moved on to another country or back to the UK. I always thought it'll be easier to just assume that they are still together.

But usually I wish I played Jeff Darrow and Nick Wu more. They were wacky.

Good times.

SPh was a fun, beautiful time in my life. I never would have believed that a Harry Potter RPG could be as brilliant as SPH was--for the game and for the players. I will always miss it.
