Did you know?

The Language of the Flowers was a popular method to express feelings where words might be improper, but did you know other means of doing so? Some ladies used their parasols, as well as their fans, gloves, and hankies to flirt with a gentleman (or alternatively, tell them to shove it!). — Bree

WANTED:

Ester Montgomery for Thomas Montgomery. The one that got away (with the pornographer...)
This boy, then. He wasn't new. Wasn't one of the worst people in the common room, those rotten rich boys - like Mr. Jailkeeper - who could not fathom a world beyond their own farts. Was a good working class lad, so he'd heard. Had a bit of a weird looking face, and a bit of a weird thing for preaching. Still.

APPEARANCE
Maddie is a tall thin girl for her age, approaching 5,6 in height but she is likely finished growing - or she hopes she is. She has a skinny starvling frame, with very long limbs. She has very pale skin and no distinctive marks or birthmarks on her skin, except for on small mole on her throat. She has a longish, oval face, like her mother and sisters. Her eyes are almond shaped, and a clear blue, giving her a very whimsical and dreamy look to her face, like she isnt paying much attention to what is going on around her. She has a deep cupid bows on her lips. She has very long golden blonde hair, that hangs in natural waves to her waist. She loves her hair and tends to wear it un-adorned. Maddie likes to present herself as best as she can, her clothes are old but well cared for and well mended. She likes pale colours, partly because she likes them and partly because they hide flour puffs well. She loves flowers and delicate lacework, if only she could afford more of them.
PERSONALITY
Maddie is a chatter box! There is no other phrase for it! She is the duracelle bunny. She seems to have boundless energy and this is evident in her personality. She tries to think good of everyone, and has it as her life motto, but despite this she is realistic...to a degree. She is aware that many people are duplicitous, and that alot of the time people mis represent themselves. despite this knowledge she gives everyone multiple chances before writing them off. They will never know they are written off, she isn't hostile, instead she is just dispassionate and uninterested in their life. Shes a sympathetic spirit...the kind of person that would find a wounded rattle snake on the side of the road, bring it home, nurse it to health, put a bow on it, then be surprised when it bit her! She can be accused of being a bit of a bleeding heart. She cares a lot about those less fortunate then herself. She's generally upbeat, and a definite glass if half full kind of person. She is fiercely loyal, like a pack animal once her loyalty is given it's damn near impossible to remove. She can generally find a good thing to say about everyone even if it takes a while. She believes thoroughly in second chances and giving people the benefit of the doubt. Maddie is loyal to a fault, she truly believes that a friend in need is a friend indeed. It takes alot of make Maddie dislike you, but her dislike once created is like her loyalty, immovable. To those she doesn’t like she simply responds at best with silence at worst with a snide comment. Things which are likely to bring about Maddie's ire are arrogance, snobbery, rudeness or abusing animals, or those who are not considered human.

HISTORY
* Parents met, when Barton went to work for Katerina’s family in their bakery in St. Petersburg, as a bake house worker. They eloped and her family provided money to start a bakery in England as a way of avoiding scandal but on the proviso that Barton would never be received into their home again, and they havn’t seen Katerina since. Married in 1864 * Rye was born the following year, to much rejoicing, as there was now a son to take over the family business. * Maggie was born, bringing about as much joy and celebration to the small family as her brother * The family expands again as Maddie joined the family, as the final girl * Herb is born completing their little family *Maddie has her first display of magic turning Herb's toes green. * Both girls are close and companionable, with Maggie making it her mission to protect Maddie. *The family, and their business are moved to Hogsmeade, so the family can be closer to the wizarding community and safe. It has a double benefit of bringing the family closer to Hogwarts school, where the children are about to start *Rye and Maggie both to Hogwarts when they are due, and were both sorted into Hufflepuff, their fathers house. Maddie is sad when Rye leaves for school but bereft when Maggie goes, as she has no one to follow around after. * She is thrilled when it is her turn to join them, and is sorted into hufflepuff * Herb comes to Hogwarts as well, he is sorted into Ravenclaw. It surprises no one! * Rye only completes his OWLS so he can join the family business and work alongside his dad. * The girls continue their schooling due to their parents aspirations, their own hard work, and the pragmatic knowledge that lower class girls need to make their own way in the world. * Maggie leaves school and Maddie sees it as an opportunity to spread her solo wings a little. *Maddie signs up for her OWLS, she takes 1 Potions 2 History of Magic 3 Care of Magical Creatures 4 Defense against the dark arts 5 Charms 6 Herbology 7 Transfiguration 8 Divination 9 Astronomy 10 Art *In her 5th year Maddie is made prefect for Hufflepuff House and at the end of this year she interns at the department of magical law enforcement. * In her 6th year, she remains prefect and focuses on her charms work and transfiguration.

Earth Magic At the end of her 6th year she undertakes an internship at the Wizengemot under the chief warlock. *During the summer of her 6th year she made contact with her maternal grandparents in order to confirm for the school that she was human. It resulted in some limited correspondance with her grandparents who were interested in hearing about her and Maggie. Her Grandfather passed away in September of 1886, leaving the Kozlov estate to both Maddie and Maggie, with none to be given to the boys due to their grandfathers hatred of the Backus name. *Maggie eloped with Mr. Byrne, the Backus parents were pretty devastated and were terrified that Maddie might make a similar decision, and make what they viewed to be rash match. * After she graduated from Hogwarts Maddie spent the Summer in St. Petersberg at some property belonging to her grandfather and spreading her wings. *Her mother visited her in St. Petersberg and they discusses that Maddie should change her name, and avail of her inheritance. Maddie suspects that her parents would rather give up the surname than have Maddie rush into a mercenary marriage. *September 1888, Maddie has returned to Hogsmeade, with her society guide/chaperon Mrs. Anna, with whom she will live while she explores this new part of her life.

(Maddie is being sneered at by a nasty shop girl - are you comforting her? Are you throwing in your two knuts? Or are you just interested in getting the gossip out of her.  

Maddie felt a little self conscious standing in the rather nice dress shop.  The satin dress she wore had been bought in St. Petersburg and was obviously of foreign design.  Like most of her wardobe it had been bought by Anna* her income allowed for significantly finer items than Maddies modest allowance would provide, but she insisted that it was what her grandparents would have wanted, for Maddie to 'get used to this life', since it would eventually be here life.  Still spending money didn't come easy to Maddie, and Anna's delight in treating the petite blonde as a doll to be dressed and petted was anathema to everything she was used to.  

It how she found herself standing in the middle of the dress shop with strict orders from Anna to buy herself at least 12  new dresses in the English style, to provision her for the season.  'Excuse me' she said a little meekly to the shop girl, a girl who would have come into her fathers shop for bread on the weekends.  'I'm eh, looking to buy a number of new dresses.'
The girl looked Maddie up and down in an obviously appraising fashion.  'How many exactly' she asked, her tone obviously sceptical.  

'12, with some other pieces' she explained, with a small smile.  The girl looked incredulous, and remarked 'I'm too busy for you' before turning on her heel and walking away.  

Maddie felt as thought she had been slapped in the face, and her eyes began to fill with tears.  What was she to do now.
