    The Great Retconning

    THE THREAD

    I'll be storing all my retconning information here. I figure all my new people will be safe from it because they're new and thus have almost nothing to retcon from an IC perspective lmao. ANYWAY onto the real stuff.

    Souri: She will be undergoing p. extensive reconstruction considering I had no idea what I was doing re: some VE stuff when I first made her like there's no reason for to have her mother's last name wtf self. SO on the new board Souri will be changed in the following ways: 
    • Her last name will be changed to O'Leary or something suitably Irish because of her dad.
    • She'll probably be middle class but I haven't decided on that for sure yet. 
    • She will no longer be a bastard. Her mother and father will have been married, he'll just have been a shitty absent father until after her mother's death when he got himself together. 
    • Her mother will not have died in childbirth, but probably one of the plagues. 
    • Her aunt will have only come into the picture upon her mother's death and would've only spent a few months - a year taking care of her. 
    • She'll have completed all seven years of schooling which means NEWTs and a chance to actually do something with her ambitions. She'll still have a love of cooking and be amazing at it bc I say so, but it won't be her job anymore. 
    • Some other stuff that I haven't thought of yet 
    I don't think that this really affects anyone else, but if does pls let me know and we can discuss lmao. 

    Ivory: Culling the cousins that I never did anything with and don't make sense considering her current plots. Also IDK I feel like there's more to change with her but I can't think of anything rn.

    Jacob: Will become UC because it currently makes no sense for him to be MC >> Probably cutting some minor things in his history out because I meant to facilitate IC drama with them and never did. Nothing that would affect anyone else. 

    Prudence: Either killing, erasing, or forever!NPCing her half-veela sisters. Making her non-human parentage have more bearing on her personality and behavior than it previously did. Maybe culling some of her half-siblings.  @'Modesty Beechworth' lmk what you think.

    Waffle: To be discussed w Bree and other Whitledge players. Though, whatever happens he'll still be a huge nuisance so.

    Zian: He'll be changing in the following ways:
    • TBH I'm making him younger by a few years so his need for kids isn't so urgent lmao. Also so he's closer to his face's actual age. Probably 3-4 years. 
    • Cutting some of his sisters or at least making the ones who are twins Not Twins because they'll likely never be played and it doesn't really matter. 
    • Also cutting his dead wife mostly because I keep forgetting he has one and it has next to no bearing on anything I've done thus far IC. 
    • I might retcon the fact that he came here with his two youngest sisters because they've never been played, only mentioned by him in IC narration and used as reasons for him to be social when he doesn't want to. 
    • I might also chop and screw his history so that he was educated in the UK for the sake of him having some connections that existed prior to adulthood. IDK if that affects his position as a liaison for the Ministry (not that I've done much with it anyway >>) but if it does he'll have some other government job or do whatever I think is most interesting for him.  

    So yes, please throw in your 2 cents if any of this affects you and even if it doesn't TBH because I'd like to hear some opinions as I plan on tinkering with things.

    I vote Souri's new last name doesn't have an apostrophe in it because if she's still gonna be your main account I'll never be able to tag you. :P

    unless the tagging system is going to change in which case I have no input
