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

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.

Standing at 5'3 and filled with untapped energy Maggie has dark blonde hair that she wears pulled back rather plainly, having made very little attempt to move towards more fashionable styles since leaving school, and blue eyes, rendering her rather pretty without really making much effort.. She has a slim figure that is beginning to fill out slightly but for now she is determined to remain as whip thin as she needs to so she can continue to play Quidditch professionally.
Coming from such a large family, and with siblings that are more than twice her age with children of their own much the same age as her, Maggie has never really know what it was like to be alone in the world. This has both good and bad effects - whilst she has never, ever been lonely and has always had a playmate to keep her occupied she has also never had time to calmly think. As a result she was a poor student, though an enthusiastic one in subjects such as Herbology and COMC, and was never happier than when outdoors. This has largely continued into her adult life, though Maggie still barely thinks of herself as such, and when off the pitch she feels out of place: as a result she is aggressively dedicated to her chosen passion and will never give it up for anybody.

+ Despises her sister.
+ Still bitter about not being the Slytherin team captain.
+ Made an enemy of a child once.

1868: Fairy Darrow, the third and final wife of Hamish Darrow, gives birth to Margaret, the youngest girl of the Darrow siblings, making her early life a strange balance between being coddled as the youngest and slightly forgotten as anything she does is old news to her parents.

1872: Gilderoy is born and Maggie is not best pleased at no longer being the baby of the family.

1873: Maggie exhibits magic for the first time by making a series of apples fall out of a tree on Tessa’s head, something that amuses her to this day.

1876: Mercutio goes to Hogwarts. Maggie sulks, annoyed to be left with Tessa and Gilderoy, and proceeds to spend almost all of her time in the garden on a practice broom.

1878: Tessa goes to Hogwarts. Good riddance.

1879: After a lovely year without her irritating older sister Maggie receives her Hogwarts letter and attends in the September. She is sorted into Slytherin, after some debate with the hat between that and Gryffindor, but her determination to play Quidditch, even at such a young age and despite knowing it will go against every expectation her family have for her, land her squarely in a house surrounded by others as ambitious as she is.

1881: Tragedy strikes when Fairy dies unexpectedly, leaving the family devastated and filling Maggie with anger.

1883: With her father’s permission Maggie is at long last allowed to play chaser on the Slytherin House Quidditch Team, where she quickly proves herself to be a valuable addition.

1885: Slytherin win the house cup!

1886: Slytherin don’t win this year but Maggie is spotted by a scout for the Holyhead Harpies and upon graduating from school goes straight onto the reserve team.

1887: Maggie becomes a first string player but her best efforts are not enough to save the Harpies from a terrible season.

1888: Maggie receives an offer from the Chudley Cannons and transfers to a much better team with hopes of glory in the new season.

+ She was a Quidditch player at school.
+ Until recently she played for the Holyhead Harpies.
+ Her father is the Deputy Head of Hogwarts.

+ Her sister works for the Minister of Magic. Maggie doesn't talk about her if she can avoid it.

+ She had a fairly excruciating crush on somebody at school.

Don't mind IC. OOC I can commit a lot more time at the weekends if we're looking to do this fairly quickly.

Also Lynn I have no strong feelings one way or the other about Alfred and Maggie being close or not but unless Hamish actively told her to stay away from him there's no reason they couldn't be there together Smile
