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
Loretta has dark hair and eyes. Like many in her family she stands tall for a woman - at five feet, eight and a half inches - which does nothing to bolster her confidence. She tends to favour soft, feminine colors though often dresses in a way that makes her blend into the crowd rather than stand out from it. She is right handed.
PERSONALITY
Creative; soft-spoken; sensitive; patient; kind; prone to anxiety; self-conscious
OTHER
- has an excellent talent for fashion design and creating pretty things such as doilies, tea cozies, handkerchiefs and the like but is too self-conscious to do much about it other than making gifts for family and friends.
HISTORY
1867 - Loretta Faith Browne is born to Augustus and Aurelia Browne. The family that she was born into was already on the large side of things when she made her appearance. She was always a quiet child that often failed to stand out among her own siblings, let alone other children. 1874 - Loretta gains another sister in the form of Prudence Browne. She is glad for the new addition but grows distant from her as the child grows and it becomes more and more apparent that they are nothing alike. 1876 - The twins go off to Hogwarts and Loretta can't help but feel heartbroken over it even though she knows that her own turn will come soon enough. With Odira, the person she had felt closest to in the household gone, Loretta retreats a little further into her own world. 1877 - The Browne family moves to Hogsmeade in the aftermath of muggles finding out about magic. Loritt dislikes leaving the home she had known but doesn't make a fuss. 1878 - Loretta's turn to go to Hogwarts finally arrives. She is sorted into Hufflepuff, the first in her family, and it is both wonderful and slightly disconcerting to find a place that she fits so fully into. She makes friends with the most notable being Ismene Swift whom she would soon consider to be her best friend. She becomes known as someone that one can talk to without worry of obvious judgement or prejudice which leads her to be confidant of many a student. 1881 - Loretta, whom had been quietly amused at Ismene's varying crushes in the past, experiences a crush for himself when she develops one on @'Harvey Beauregard' which would see itself to persist to this very day. In the summer of 1881, Chastity married Thom Pettigrew. In Autumn, Sampson marries Annie Childs. 1882 - Loretta is appointed prefect (as is Harvey). She is quite shocked by this turn of events since she had always been among the quieter students of the house. Even so, she takes the appointment seriously and does her best to be an asset to the student staff. Calliope married Daniel Riley. Chastity has her first child. In December of the same year that she married, Calliope is left a widow. 1883 - Sampsons wife dies after bringing twins into the world. One of the babies dies only days later. It saddens Loretta greatly, especially when she sees how brokenhearted her poor brother is. On a somewhat happier note, Odira debuts into society and Calliope gives birth to the daughter that she had conceived prior to her husbands death. In September, Prudence joins Loretta in Hogwarts but is sorted into Gryffindor which comes as no surprise to the Hufflepuff. Autumn ends with the news that Odira is betrothed to Bennet Potter. 1884 - Chastity gives birth to a boy. Odira and Bennet get married and on their wedding night, her sisters brother in law (who is also the Minister of Magic) is murdered. Chastity perishes in the laughing plague. Loretta manages to come through unscathed as do many of her immediate family members. To add to her misery, Loretta learns that Ismene will not be returning to Hogwarts and will instead be going off to the Pendergast School of Young Roses. When school begins that fall, Loretta feels quite lonely, indeed. 1885 - Mass murderers escape and there is a lockdown at Hogwarts. Later, it is announced that the coming out ball is cancelled. An event that Loretta is lowkey happy about since she had been dreading it. Even so, she would have liked being properly debuted but other than that - and sympathy for her friends who are more into these things - she doesn't really care. Thus, she graduates with little fanfare. Odira is kidnapped by a mass murderer. Loretta is anguished, especially considering the fact that Odira is the family member that she feels closest to. Loritt frets and worries until Odira is found and brought home. She had also given birth to her baby. Loretta simply cannot imagine what she went through and is heartbroken to discover that her sister does not remember them at all! She does her best to be of assistance and through patience and understanding on Loretta's end, their bond begins to reform itself once more over time. 1886 - As her time as a Hogwarts graduate goes on, Loretta comes to realize that she is petrified at the idea of being married. This results in her being incredibly awkward around eligible men. She supposes it is hardly surprising considering her family's experiences with marriage and family thus far. Lorrit decides to keep her fear to herself, due to not knowing how her love-obsessed best friend might take it. 1887 - Ismene finally gets to debut into society! Loretta is looking forward to being able to have more time with her best friend despite feeling a little awkward around her best friends new friend, Dorothea Potts. And thus it has been another year of subconsciously trying to drive off interested suitors, crushing on Harvey Beauregard and generally awkward turtling it up.

<blockquote style="text-align: justify;">Loretta had been spending a majority of the cocktail hour trying to make it look like she wasn't here at all. She didn't know how Ismene was able to handle such things so grandly. And Calliope handled them like she was a predator and the pillars of society her prey. It was a mix of awe inspiring and frightening for someone like Lorrit.

Her nerves were even more frayed when she had seen that they would be sitting with the people from Witch Weekly. How ghastly the magazine was! She had a subscription for the fashion pieces and was often scandalized by the various bits of gossip they spun so freely with no care of the consequences in the subjects lives.

Loretta had relaxed somewhat in the company of a friend but was almost instantly tense again when her elder sister led her away. "Oh, yes!" She declared, probably a little too enthusiastically because at least she had done one thing right. Well, she thought so? She felt a need to prove that she had seen the seating chat, even so. "We'll be sitting with the Witch Weekly people, the Mulcibers, Longbottoms, Miss Scamander, Mister Skeeter and a couple of other gentleman."
