look who just moved into 3D! is that FLORENCE PUGH? no, that’s definitely VALENTINA PUDDIFOOT! rumour has it the 24 year old is a PUREBLOOD and is a SQUIB but now SHE spends their time as a FILM CRITIC and WAITRESS. i’m sure they’ll be a great addition to the apartments since they’re A PROBLEM-SOLVER and WITTY despite being INTIMIDATING and OPINIONATED. take some time to settle in. just remember rent is due on the first!
the typing of cold fingertips against a keyboard. nitro-coffee and artisanal baked bread dipped in hot chocolate. tendrils of hair falling into your face and bold eyeliner. a dry laugh and a subtle smirk. deliberate pen strokes and old VCR tapes. changing your hair color on a whim and late night laughter with your best friend.
- she becomes after many failed attempts at different jobs, a part-time film critic. she works for a muggle magazine, green light magazine, and at a muggle cafe called the cookie jar. she often gets to bring back baked goods, snacks and some meals home. her experience at madame puddifoot’s makes her perfect for the job.
her roommate is will york, and they’ve known each other since before will’s been to hogwarts, having lived in proximity of each other for a long time. they have a podcast together called the wombat files, where they shoot the shit, talk relevant topics, etc.
she did some modeling when she was eighteen/nineteen, and became well known for her very pert nose. occasionally, when she’s short on cash or needs something expensive, she’ll do a gig or two, but she hated being a model passionately, and only does it if the case really calls for it.
madame puddifoot’s isn’t doing too well, and valentina feels a lot of guilt for “abandoning” the family legacy, and makes up for it by sending as much money as she can a month to her mother to support her mom and grandma. she visits once a week too, because despite being a squib, her mother has fought her internalized phobias of disability to love her child properly, and as many issues as valentina has with her family, she does still love them.
she has two other siblings; they’re twelve year old twins that are enrolled in hogwarts, and they’re both in hufflepuff. their names are charles ‘charlie’ and alistair ‘ali’.
both valentina and will have been repeatedly told they are ‘opinionated girls’ but this manifests different within the two of them. valentina is unrelenting and has strong opinions about everything, feeling sure about her world-view, even while not logical. her opinions are based off her experience and how she perceives the world, not through other’s. why should she care about how another person views the world when they can speak for their own experience; she can only testify to hers. in other words ‘i hate that cake, it tastes gross, and therefore, you shouldn’t order it, because if I don’t like it, then it doesn’t matter’. she is not against changing her opinions, but it would take something great for her to shift her opinion.
