summer houses are actually pretty common (and not very luxurious) so i'd say upper middle is probably alright, especially if one was inherited or something

That's a good way of gauging it.

One house is in Russia, the other is in the Ukraine, more of a summer home.  Should I go for rich just in case?

the way i have always sort of gauged it:

if everyone in the family could stop working and their lifestyle would see no change, go for rich
if they would see a change in their lifestyle if they quit working, upper middle

it's also a little dependent on the location of the houses, especially in russia, since things vary drastically across the country.

Questions & Answers / [solved] Difference between rich and upper middle class?

What is the difference between the two classes?  I have my character's family owning two houses, an estate in Russia and then a manor gifted to them in the Ukraine.  I know some people say only wealthy people can own multiple houses, but my family owns multiple houses and we are not considered wealthy.  What's the wizarding world's take on this?

Hello everyone! I would like to apply for the lovely Molly Weasley. I spoke to all of the drivers of the currently active and in progress Weasley clan and have gotten okay's from a lot of them. I'm aware of the commitments, and I plan on being active and writing. Been a crazy road for me RL with school barging in and causing a mess, but I feel like I'm ready to take on a canon (beyond Stewart). Things are slowing down for me. I'm aware I got lots of WIPs, but I'll have plenty of (forced) sitdown time once I have foot surgery to make a large headway on everything. <333

Without further ado, here's a sample! In brief I plan to play Molly as a chipper lady full of compassion, who hasn't quite adjusted to the fact her children are growing up. She still sees them as little kids in her heart, including Harry and Hermione. ^^ To her, watching Ginny graduate Hogwarts has made her have a lot of feelings, both positive and negative. She's proud of her children living their lives, but at the same time clings to the idea that they'll never fully leave.



Molly double checked her home charm work, worried that things weren't going as planned. The knives were cutting the vegetables, the stove was prepping itself for soup, the rugs were beating themselves in the front lawn, her mother's china floated through the room setting itself neatly on the table, and the broom was sweeping the little front foyer that no longer held so many shoes. The woman was relieved that nothing was out of line as she was prepping for her little family get-together. Now that each of her baby birds had flown the nest, she felt saddened every August of what life there used to be with school related chaos. She missed it so much she wanted to start a new tradition of sorts, a family dinner - like it used to be - when everyone was home, the day before school would technically start. She wanted to hold onto at least that.

She prepped each empty bedroom for potential stays, reminiscing in every space. Her loving William was all grown up, married, living with Fluer. She recalled the wedding, and how beautiful everything was, and how distraught she was after the death eaters crashed and burned practically everything. She kept the quilts he didn't take with him that she made on his bed, folded neatly. Charlie, her wonderful Charlie, he was doing important work with dragons that made her fear for his life but also she was proud of him for all that he was doing for the reserve. She smiled seeing his dragon figures still on the shelf above his bed, she wouldn't dare remove them.

Percival's room was dim, and cold. He hadn't been around too often for her to lovingly keep his room alive. She kept the spiders at bay and made sure no boggarts or banshees made home in his closet that had a few childhood trinkets. But each gift she had given him that he returned, she placed on his bed, so that someday when he'd come home to her he'd be greeted by all the handmade love over the years. She sent him an invite, though expected he wouldn't make an appearance. He was so distant since he joined the Ministry. Nonetheless she was proud of her little Percy making big strides. He always was ambitious. She even recalled when he was little he wanted to be Minister of Magic. Molly smiled sweetly to herself before shuffling over to the next room.

She hesitated at the door before opening it. Fred and George. A part of her still felt pain when she looked at Fred's bed and all of his things she couldn't touch without crying. She missed him. George was working at his business, being successful just like all of his siblings, in his own unique way. While she didn't like he dropped out of school, because education was very important, she was proud of him and his strength. She stopped at Ron's room for a brief moment, relaying the quilt out on his bed. She was proud of her youngest boy too. He helped Harry Potter save wizard-kind from Voldemort. Of course she was proud of her little Ronniekins.

Then there was Ginevra, her little baby daughter. Her room was still filled with her things, full of her smells, and still had an element of presence despite her moving away recently. She was still moving things and organizing. A part of Molly broke when her Ginny discussed leaving. She was the last child, and it was difficult to let her go. Ginny wanted to go onto Quidditch, and living on her own was her best bet for success. Molly didn't want to stand in her daughter's way, but it still saddened her.

Molly made the trek back down the staircase slowly, taking in the lack of voices. She didn't like the silence because it was too quiet. Even though she could hear her homemade chicken noodle soup prepping and the rugs out front, it lacked life. She missed the noise, the jokes, the shouting. Sure, her children came and went from the home, as she told each of them they were always welcomed, but it wasn't the same as when they all lived at home. If she could measure her own success it would be how her family was doing. She was happy to have raised such wonderful and loving children who were adventuring out in the world, making their own success. So while having an empty home felt wrong, it also was right.

She briefly looked at the family clock, seeing each spoon in multiple different directions. She made a mental note to herself that she had to fix it, or ask Arthur to modify it to fit extra notes around the face to include all of the changes that have happened. Molly gave the family owl two more letters, one for Harry Potter, and the other for Hermione Granger. Inviting them too to the family dinner. She wanted to see how they were doing. She missed seeing Harry around the Burrow, and Hermione was brightfully intelligent and sweet in her manners. She enjoyed having them in her home.

"Artie love," she called from the window, "dinner is at five. So don't be too long playing with that muggle contraption! Ohhh, please, wash up before guests arrive, Harry may be coming!" The witch shook her head a little, but smiled. She was so grateful and so happy to have a family like hers. With a few modifications, she wouldn't have it any other way.

I would like to create a non-canon character but yet descendant of a canon character.i would like to create the grandson of grindelwald, His father being the son of grindelwald while he was in America impersonating Perceval Graves. I would like to make him a student at ilvermorny trying to live down his fathers fanatic/phsychopathic views on the world, and the things he has done.
