Before transferring into the muggle world as an orthopedic surgeon, pure-blooded wizard Miles Williams did a brief stint as a a healer in St. Mungo's, where he met pure-blooded witch Aileen Cortés. The latter had transferred recently from Spain. It didn't take long for the two to meet, obviously under the dire circumstances their job placed them in. From their coworker relationship emerged a close friendship between the two. They'd work together every day in the same floors, and met frequently during their off hours. Eventually, it became something else, and they began dating. Just a year and a half after they began to date, Miles proposed. They exchanged vows months later. A little afterwards came the first of their four younglings - David Williams.
While the Williams family led a happy life with their growing family, there was another family with origins from Ireland and Germany that began to flourish. A pure-blooded fashion designer named Blair Schneider, and a pure-blooded lawyer that went by the name Jack Collins. They met in court, with the latter as the former's lawyer when someone decided to sue the fashion designer for stealing their designs. Blair's side came victorious, and in the celebration of it, the pair informally met and a friendship began to flourish. Around the time David was born did Blair and Jack get married. About a year afterwards, their firstborn was born - Emiline Collins.
After two decades of marriage more or less, Aileen and Miles' marriage collapsed. It was sudden, and nobody expected it, but it happened. As for the Collins' marriage... it lasted almost as long as Miles and Blair's did, though everyone could see and had fully expected it to fail. A few years in, Blair and Jack just... lost their connection, and it reflected in the way they acted around each other - distant, snappy, and always leading to arguments. The final blow to the marriage was when Blair decided to continue her line of work in London, England, where she believed her work would be more successful. It was during one of her visits to London, looking for a home, that she met Miles Williams.
Blair and Miles really hit it off, the pair flirting more often than not. One thing led to another, and they began to date. Shortly after, it came to light that it had led to Blair's first pregnancy since her youngest - Ruby - was born, almost a decade beforehand. Doing what was considered right, Miles waited a little before proposing to her. Their wedding happened just a few short months later and, after gaining the custody of his kids, dragged them into his new shared house with Blair, who in turn brought her own kids with her. It was here that the feud started, both sides of the family seeing how different they were to each other. While Aileen and Miles' kids were sportier, and didn't mind playing rough and dirty, Blair and Jack's kids did mind. They were much, much classier, which led to more clashing than getting along.
Now, to Joshua. He grew up looking up to his older brothers. However, Josh never seemed to follow their examples fully. He always did his own things and formed his own opinions. He loved to write when he was younger, finding how all he has to do is use his own pencil to create a brand new world. This actually was how he got his first sign of magic.
When he was eight years old, he got so frustrated with how his story was turning out that the page just burst into flame. Luckily, someone was home to quickly put out the fire causing little to no damage to the furniture.
He started Hogwarts with little to no trouble. He would always be found at his house's Quidditch matches and be cheering along with everyone else with a pencil tucked behind his ear. Things were relatively normal. That is, until his parents just spontaneously got into a divorce and he found himself living with just his mom. That lasted for a relatively short period of time, however. Josh was soon reunited with his father who, much to Josh's horror, was already married to some stuck up fashion designer. What sucked, was that he was obligated to get along with his new 'classy' siblings.
Now in his third year, he is determined to avoid the other half of the Williams family as much as he can.
