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

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.

By and large, Frida doesn't look different from most of her relatives—most being the key word, because somehow her sister and one of her closest cousins managed to be born blonde. She stands at an unimpressive five feet, one inch tall (which is even more unimpressive compared to the heights her sisters have already attained) and her petite build has recently begun to fill out with more womanly curves—so quickly, in fact, that she's self-conscious about it.

She has dark brown hair and similar brown eyes, and her complexion is fair enough to make her look ghastly at times. Her natural expression is sort of a dreary one, but it's mostly because she doesn't have a smile naturally resting on her face.

She's never cared much about her outfits and usually allowed her aunt to dress her as she pleased, but has recently become much more fashion-conscious. Her voice is low-pitched compared to other girls' her age, but she offsets it by speaking softly. She is right-handed.


Notable elements of her personality:

While almost no one would consider her meek, Frida could easily be considered one of the least intimidating and most agreeable members of her family. She tends to avoid confrontation, citing her own inability to provide witty comebacks as an excuse for not defending herself when she doesn't feel it's necessary. However, when a member of her family is slandered, Frida is quick to come to their defense — even if she knew they wouldn't show her the same gratitude. Loyalty is her defining trait, but also her fatal flaw; when loyal to the wrong person, Frida finds herself facing manipulation and emotional turmoil.

She can be ignorant and small-minded at times, but she usually has little idea she's being so. She is a product of her upbringing, and as such may show prejudices despite her generally amicable demeanor. She never actively contemplates on the inferiority of others, though may show surprise when certain people show strengths that she would assume they just wouldn't.
    ❧ Frida's amortentia primarily smells of her late mother's perfume, though also contains traces of her favorite tea blend, old books, burning firewood, and the candies on the Hogwarts Express.

    ❧ Frida has taken interest in the Church of Magical Jesus recently. She may talk about it, but hasn't committed as an actual follower.
    ❧ Frida excels in Potions and History of Magic class, but has shown less success in Defence Against the Dark Arts and Divination—but not for a lack of trying.
1873 | The second child and first daughter of Orestes and Elda Lestrange is born and is promptly named Frida Sylvestra. Absent parenting means most of her time is spent in the arms of a nurse and later a nanny. She doesn't show any personality — any spunk — immediately and is a rather quiet child.

1874 | Frida's mother births a daughter that's a glaring oddity in a family of dark-haired members: Gretchen Lestrange. At only fifteen-months-old, Frida barely acknowledges her sister's existence.

1876 | Another daughter, Meta Lestrange, is born into the family. Now two-years-old, Frida takes a much greater interest in the newborn baby; sadly, there's little someone her age can do with babies except getting into endless giggling wars with them. She does start to form opinions on her Kristoffer, her older brother, though: she comes to the conclusion that he's one scary fucker.

1877 | The family moves to Hogsmeade, which isn't something Frida has many memories of.

1879 | Another boy finally joins the family, and he's named Klaus II. Frida doesn't really see what she can do with a brother and finds herself disappointed that she doesn't have a younger sister to play with.

1880 | A burst of anger-fueled magic from her elder brother sparks Frida's own first sign of magic, which embarrassingly enough is to vanish from sight for five hours. When the household staff finally stumble across her, she's trapped in a crate in the family's attic, yelling for someone to help her.

1881 | Frida gets her wish from two years earlier granted with another sister, Hilda Lestrange, is born. Frida gets to play with her... at least for a while. She soon grows bored with the baby, especially since 90% of her time is spent crying, sleeping, eating, or defecating.

1883 | Frida is given another brother, Aric Lestrange, and is more or less uninterested in his existence.

Summer, 1884 | Oh Merlin. What begins as a year of excitement (the year she was going to go to Hogwarts!) quickly turns into one of despair and loneliness. People begin to die, and not just any people: members of her own family! She'd never expected to see death so close to home — at least not this early in life! Her younger brothers perish due to the laughing plague, as do her grandmother and even her own mother. The latter is the most difficult to deal with because, despite the barrier between mother and daughter due to societal expectations, Frida loves her mother. She doesn't learn that her father is the one responsible for the death, but she never would've believed it anyways.

Autumn, 1884 | Frida goes off to Hogwarts alongside Cousin Seneca and is thoroughly embarrassed when she's sorted into Hufflepuff. She can't face her brother, let alone her own father! She suspects someone else — maybe Kristoffer, maybe Seneca, maybe another rogue cousin — wrote home because he seems to already know about her failure when she writes to him a week later. Apart from her sorting debacle, Frida tries her hardest to do well in her classes. She doesn't seem to have any obvious strengths or weaknesses in any of her classes, either keeping average or slightly-above average marks in everything.

1885 | Holy heckles what is happening? After an tragic explosion occurs at the Ministry, the family receives news that their father has died — and just a year after their mother! Rather than bawl her eyes out like she had after losing her mother, Frida seems almost numb. Her grades suffer a bit, but she ends up bouncing back after using studying as a coping mechanism. Things get worse (???) when Kristoffer is shipped off to live with their Great-Uncle Lucius rather than being allowed to stay with his sisters at their Uncle Priam's house.

1886 | Hilda dies after an incident with a mountain troll, which sadly doesn't surprise Frida as much as it ought to. Death is becoming such a usual part of her life that she wonders whether she should be stocking up on mourning accessories when the family goes dress shopping. Who's going to die next? Gretchen? Meta? Herself? In unrelated news, she adds Ancient Runes, Divination, and Ancient Studies to her schedule.

1887 | Meta officially becomes the Favorite Sister when she's sorted into Gryffindor instead of Slytherin, marking her as an oddity in their small family, too. Meta also pressures Frida to tryout for the quidditch team, which fortunately gets her no where. In her quest to master legilimency, Seneca uses her as a test subject. The whole process leaves Frida shaken to the point where her cousin doesn't attempt it again.
❧ Frida was orphaned in 1885 when her father, Orestes Lestrange, was killed in the Ministry Explosion.

❧ She and her sisters Gretchen and Meta now live with their Uncle Priam Lestrange in Hogsmeade, while their brother Kristoffer lives with their Great-Uncle Lucius Lestrange in London.

❧ Frida is one of the few Lestranges to be sorted into Hufflepuff, and is often wary when people bring up this fact.
❧ She's only a soft blood purist, but even then only shows it in the form of shock or surprise.
❧ Her father murdered her mother in 1884.

Plot Preferences:
❧ I value communication over anything else, as a lack of communication breeds (unwanted) tension! As such, if you wish for a certain outcome you can't reach without me or my character cooperating, please let me know! I can generally find ways for my characters to reach certain points while keeping true to their personalities.

❧ I prefer faster-paced threads, as some of my character's plot-lines move quickly enough to where the outcome may make no difference if it takes too long. I tend to respond quickly; if you feel I'm taking too long, don't hesitate to nudge me!

❧ I generally prefer organic development to pre-plotting, except, of course, in the case of plottable adoptables and other plots that have a needed outcome.

❧ My post length varies based on a number of factors, including but not limited to: length of post I'm given to work with, muse for the character, and plot-importance.

❧ Concerning mature threads, I'm perfectly alright with swearing and violence, though will write smut only if it's required to further character or plot development.

❧ I'm perfectly fine with basic god-modding actions (i.e. your character leading mine somewhere, touches, etc.), but prefer control in most other situations. If you have a question, just ask! I won't bite ;)

❧ Unless important for plot development, I generally prefer not to be in basic meet-and-greet threads. If conversation between characters turn idle, I'm prone to creating sinkholes. Seriously.

April 4th, 1888 — Hogwarts Courtyard

Finishing homework before the brief holiday break and preparing for Easter with the Lestrange clan was enough to fill up Frida's schedule in the week since she'd badgered Miss Fairchild into assisting her with Ancient Runes, and she'd seemingly forgotten all about it until she'd stumbled across Uncle Priam before Easter dinner. Talk of magical Jesus seemed fantastical and silly when coming out of his mouth, but it had been enough to prompt her to remember her agreement with the older Hufflepuff. So, upon returning to school, she'd sought her out.

She'd just left Charms class when she spotted the fifth year walking towards the greenhouses, which was unsurprisingly where Frida was also heading. She broke into a light sprint, her chest heaving upon reaching the older girl.

"<b>Good morning, Miss Fairchild!</b>" she chirped, holding her books close to her chest. She cut to the chase without might time for idle chatter; they didn't have enough time before reaching the greenhouses. "<b>I thought about you over Easter break. My Uncle Priam was talking about Jesus — you're a part of the church, aren't you?</b>"
