Characters & Players
Marcus Flint (ginlikeflint) was played by ellensmithee until March 2005, then by kaalee from April to October 2005. Oliver Wood (thebigbadwood) was played by deblovesdragon until July 2005, then anonymously taken over by ellensmithee until October 2005. Both character journals have since been deleted.
For Marcus/Oliver RP threads, see poster: thebigbadwood & poster: ginlikeflint at the_leaky and poster: thebigbadwood & poster: ginlikeflint at outside_leaky. See also kaalee's Character Summary: Marcus Flint, 09 July 2005.
I must admit that they (Deb and Ellen) played together the most thrilling Marcus/Oliver, really, and managed to win me over from someone who never considered the pairing before to someone who was rooting for the Quiddich Captains wholeheartedly. Thank you ladies!
Other fans also credit the RPG for turning them on to the Flint/Wood ship. lore wrote in May 2005: "I am totally and utterly in love with Marcus/Oliver. And I never read them in fandom before, but I am weak in the knees for them now. Thank you [kaalee] for not ankling their romance. I would have been heartbroken, but instead, I am thrilled at the turns it has taken!"
ildi later created another Marcus/Oliver illustration based on the April 2005 scene "The Morning After...". The storyline also inspired Flint/Wood fanfiction such as kaalee's "A glorious, wild view..." (August 2005).
