Here is a world where Death Eaters roam free, and muggles are off to fend for themselves.
"He Who Must Not Be Named Killed by Infant, Now Missing"
"The Minister of Magic Murdered"
"Dumbledore is Dead"
"The War is finally Over!"
In reality, there is a resistance that is still fighting for the rights of themselves, muggles, and muggleborns alike.
It is January 1981, and it is one of the coldest winters London has seen in quite some time.
We are open!!!
Due to just opening we have no site-wide events at the moment.
But in the future they will be posted here and in the announcements.

Creative – Liss is very gifted creatively. Very early on in her life, it became apparent that she was artistically-prone. Quick Thinking – Whether it be hard-slung retorts to other people shooting their mouths off or a split-second decision on the Quidditch field back in the day, there is no denying Liss has her wits about her. Practical – Liss isn’t one of those people who live in a fantasy world. She knows what she wants in life and she knows the difficulties of getting there. There’s no dreaming about fairy princes and coaches with this girl. Energetic – There’s no lack of liveliness in Liss. She hates when things get dull and she never fails to keep things interesting, be it in a good way or bad way. Fun – This could be taken as Liss is just a big ball of fun, but it more literally means she just likes to have fun. There are those who would be quick to attest to the fact that they don’t find her very fun at all (mostly people who can’t stand opinionated people) because of her very competitive nature, but she makes the most of what should be fun and she at least can boast of having a good time more often than not, even if others can’t.
Quick to anger – Liss has a temper on her if you’ve ever seen one. If something doesn’t go her way, you’ll know how she feels. She has a mouth on her at no mistake. As she’s grown into adult-hood, she’s matured a little bit, but it would be a lie to say she knows how to keep her mouth shut all the time. Spiteful – Liss is one of those people who are nice enough and treat you well if she likes you, but if you get on her bad side…. It’s not going to be very fun for you. Overly competitive – She holds the record for the most technical fouls on the Gryffindor quidditch team. ‘Nuff said. Opinionated – With Liss, it’s pretty much you agree with her or there’s a big debate coming. Negative Nancy – Liss has a tendency to be a bit scathing at times. Not overly, but she’s sort of a cold person.
Staring off into space
Biting her lip
Flipping her hair out of her eyes
Raising her eyebrow
Rolling her eyes
Basically coming to the realization that her mom chose not to have her daughter in her life. She would never admit it, but that realization was the worst she’d ever felt.
A huge version of any kind of bug. Anything with more than four legs has no reason to exist in Liss’ book.
Liss’ patronus takes the form of a narwhal when produced properly and basically to produce it, she just conjures up a litany of memories; from the highlights of her quidditch playing to the grand opening of her shop…. She’s got quite a few that she tries to hold onto in the harder times.

How you found us: I MADE YOUR FACE
Liss Dougherty is a spitfire if ever you’ve seen one. She doesn’t stand for anything she doesn’t like and you’ll hear about it for the rest of the day if any ‘injustices’ stand. Her friends used to joke that she should have become a saleswoman when she graduated from Hogwarts because she just won’t let things go. She sort of followed that advice… This being said, she doesn’t complain about just anything. It’s usually things that really just need to be complained about like injustice to muggleborns and the landlady being a complete slag about Fabio chasing her dog. She’ll worry a subject till she’s blue in the face and if it still doesn’t turn for her favour, she’ll worry it some more. Her big mouth isn’t always a negative thing, though (although her landlady would like to disagree sometimes). She’s a bit of a clown and is known to cheer her friends up with her backhanded humour. If anything, she’s just opinionated and doesn’t like having to accept differing opinions, but that doesn’t make her a horrible person. She wouldn’t have the friends she did were that the case. It is true that a handful of people really don’t like her for it, for she’s just an ‘acquired taste’, if you will.
While the above might get Liss mistaken for someone who couldn’t care less about her future, it would be incorrect to assume so. Liss is adamant about becoming a high-end fashion designer and actually does pretty well at achieving that. Since the age of fifteen, she’s held a steady job at Twilfitt and Tatting’s during the summers and Christmas holidays. When she wants something, she goes for it and gets it and she’s been pretty dedicated to achieving this since she was very young. Since an early age, Liss has always had a love for clothing and fabrics and colours. Her favourite part of playing with Barbies was getting them dressed and doing there hair. She very rarely ever played with them. Her friends always come to her for fashion advice, as well, and she never denies a chance to let her creative streak shine. For the commencement ceremony at the end of her seventh year, she even designed her own robes to wear beneath the graduation cloak. So, all loud-mouthedness aside and all assumptions that go along with it; Liss is actually a pretty dedicated person.
When it comes to relationships, its easy to say that she doesn’t really put a lot of effort into them. She’s not very close with her family, her friends tend to flock to her more than anything (save for a select few that she actually wants to hold on to) and until Valentyn, her boyfriend, came along, she never really saw romance as a priority. Getting close to people has just never really been a main concern of hers. Now, this is not to say she doesn’t enjoy people, for she really does. One of her favourite pastimes is a good party. When at school, Liss usually was the coordinator and booze-getter for Gryffindor House’s parties. She loves to let loose and hang out with everyone, especially after a hard week at work. The thing is probably just that Liss likes the company of people without putting too much into the relationship at hand, except for those few individuals that are her best friends. Not to mention she gets irritated very easily. She is extremely impatient and will not hesitate to tell you to shut the hell up if you’re annoying her. Most people have been turned off by her rudeness, but those that haven’t know that her bitchiness isn’t the predominate part of her personality. She knows how to be fun and she knows how to be a good person. It is simply that opinionated people will get very irritated if their opinion doesn’t rise to the level of universally accepted.
Liss is also very headstrong. You wouldn’t know by her demeanor, but she is usually more talk than walk. She’s not a forsaken witch, by any means, but her actual abilities in magic are nowhere near what you would expect judging by the way she is so ‘in your face’. She would never admit it to anyone, but were it not for the fact her friends and loved ones tend to need to hold her back from things, she would have gotten herself offed in this world long ago. She is extremely proud and will get in your face if you even insinuate she is anything less than self-sufficient in every aspect of her life.
All in all, Liss Dougherty is probably one of the most opinionated, headstrong women you will ever see in your life. She doesn’t deny it either.
Liss’ mother and father were never a match made in heaven and that’s for damn sure. Caroline was a struggling student about to fail her final exams and George was a struggling mechanic and alcoholic. To be fair, both were probably drawn to each other just by the fact they were both equally about to fail out of life all together. The two met at a dingy South London pub and what should have remained a one night stand ended up being the beginning of a very obligated and unhealthy relationship: Caroline became pregnant and because George wasn’t altogether a horrible person, decided to help Caroline out with the baby. They remained ‘together’ up until Felicity-Grace Dougherty was born. The couple remained together for the baby’s first two months until they jointly decided neither really liked anything about the other. So George moved out of their extremely small flat and moved in with his parents and Caroline became an associate at a small department store. George remained an active part of Liss’ life as best he knew how but his booze still remained a priority.
When Liss was about five, George made an effort to at least cut back on the drinking and start a more productive life for himself. He became a hardware store manager and did his best to try and be a good father to his daughter. Caroline was young, though, and though she tried to be a mother, was still very much a child herself. She wanted to do young people things and skirted many of her responsibilities as a mother. She partied a lot and left Liss with her own parents a lot. So, from an early age, Liss pretty much had to learn how to do her own thing. Her mother somehow had acquired full custody of her and so she only saw her dad on the weekends. As she got older, the change from her mom and dad’s level of responsibility traded dramatically. It became where she started spending more and more time at her dad’s than her mom’s. Even so, she never really enjoyed herself much at either home and ended up spending most of her free time with friends of hers that she met at grade school. Liss ended up being what most consider the “big girl on campus”. She liked to boss people around and to get her voice heard; a trait she inherited from her father. It was obvious most of the kids that hung out with her were only intimidated by her. Her relationship with her father was always a bit wonky; it was clear from the start George had no idea what he was doing. Because of her parents’ lack of parental ability, especially on her mum’s side, Liss derived her confidant, ‘holier than thou’ attitude from her constant having to fend for herself lifestyle. It had grown to the point where Liss began taking care of George sometimes more than he needed to take care of her. She cooked for him, cleaned up his messes… Perhaps her impatience for ridiculousness came from this as well. George didn’t mean for this to happen… he was just a bit naïve when it came to being a dad. It ended up being what it was, though, and Liss obviously became closer with her father than she was with her mum.
When she was ten, both her parents and she herself were shocked by a mysterious letter that arrived in the mail, addressed to Liss in dark green ink… almost as if written by a quill pen…. Within, it stated that Liss had been accepted at a prestigious school for magic! George and Caroline were stunned: their daughter was a witch…. What. The. Hell? After enduring much convincing that the letter was not, in fact, a hoax, George accompanied his daughter to Diagon Alley to gather some things the letter said she would need for school. Liss was amazed when she arrived at the crazy street. There was magic… everywhere… She was astonished at the amazing things around her. Never before had she imagined such things existed! She soon became enraptured with the world of magic and everything involved with it. It didn’t take long though for her to realize there were a few people who weren’t too keen on people like her… muggleborns, they called them. Or, if they were particularly nasty, Mudbloods. She didn’t stand for it though and, in her first year at Hogwarts, received at least thirteen detentions for fighting with people that insulted her being a muggleborn.
In her third year, Liss became a chaser for the Gryffindor Quidditch team. She loved it and was really not bad at it either. She was quick with her thinking and her agility was rather admirable, making her quite an asset to the team. Her mouth, however, wasn’t the most helpful of things and more than a few times landed her with a red card for the rest of the game. At fifteen, she was hired as a sales associate at Twilfitt and Tattings and therefore became that anomaly kid no one could really label. Was she a tomboy or was she a mallrat? People tend to feel uncomfortable around those they can’t label and, while it can’t be said at all that Liss was without friends in school, it has to be fairly stated that there were pleeeeenty who did not like her at all. Overall, school passed without too much incident for her and she managed to scrape by with a decent listing of NEWT’s. They weren’t particularly useful to her, as what she really wanted to do happened to reside outside of academic schooling. By this time she was living fully with her dad (more out of obligation to his health and inability to take care of himself properly on his own than a lack of alternative living arrangements) and therefore had easier access to work. Her position was elevated from sales associate to assistant manager and she decided this would have to do until she could afford to open her own shop.
Nearly one year after she graduated, Felicity-Grace acquired a lease for the building across the street from Gringott’s; a pretty ideal location. She renovated and opened within four months and business was great for her. Given the state of society, she obviously received more than a few threats to her establishment because of her blood status, but nothing detrimental has occurred so far. Liss believes it’s because all of the blood-snobs like her products far too much to go without them should anything happen to her. Shortly after F.G. Dougherty’s opened its doors, a man named Valentyn Iliescu walked right through them. Looking back, she would have said he was nothing like what she was looking for in a partner (not that she’d been looking in the first place), but somehow the two had just worked. Neither had wanted to jump into anything serious, but it eventually grew into that and the rest is 3 years worth of history. During those three years, Liss was also inducted into the Order of the Phoenix and her shop is a part of the ‘underground railroad’ so to speak that harbors muggle-born, ‘blood traitor’ and other hunted families in its basement. In doing so, Liss has further put her neck and her livelihood on the line, but she thinks its pretty damn worth it if she gets to stick it to those ‘god damn Death Eater prats’ in the process.
