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.

Sloane is a petite creature, still holding onto some of her baby chub and gaining none of the height of her brothers as of right now. She’s barely reach 4’5” at the moment. Her round face is smattered with freckles and wide, expressive blue eyes. Her long brown hair is usually a mess of a mop, from wild adventures through the family garden, though her mother does her best to keep it tamed. The only strange thing about Sloane’s appearance is that it changes! Not by design however; as a metamorphagus she has the ability to change her appearance at will, but lacks any semblance of control to do so when she likes. When she is upset or frustrated, her hair will change colors, when she is sad or embarrassed her skin will fade to a different shade. In a silly mood she may be able to change her nose briefly, but never for long, no matter how hard she concentrates.
Wild; rebellious; a bit of a feminist; still a daddy’s girl; one of the boys; not the best student; adventurous; stubborn; proud; quidditch enthusiast; not at all proper; often loud; loyal friend; insecure about her metamorphmagus abilities; easily embarrassed.

[August 24th, 1876] | A surprise set of twins join the already rather large, boisterous Bixby family. Sloane comes flying out first, robust and full of noise. Shortly after a twin, Sawyer, follows, but it immediately clear that the second infant is not as healthy as the first. The midwife highly suspects that he won’t make it the night. However, the youngest Bixby proves stubborn at least, and survives, huddled close to his large sister in their bassinet.

[January 1877] | Unfortunately young Sawyer’s resolve is not enough to see him through a severe chill the winter following his birth. He passes away during the night, Sloane wakes from her separate cot and cries, but it’s too late for anyone to do anything. Her entire body is also blue- giving the nanny a near heart attack thinking she too had caught the chill when it was in fact, the first real demonstration of her metamorphagus ability. Having been the easier of the two babes, Sloane becomes inconsolable at night, missing her twin next to her, even as an infant; nobody gets a lot of sleep in the Bixby house for a while.

[Summer 1877] | Moving on from the loss of Sawyer the family packs up and moves to Hogsmeade along with just about everybody else it seems. Maybe a fresh start will give the whole family something to look forward to.

[1878] | Alvin heads off to Hogwarts to join Rufus and in an effort to move on from their loss, the entire family follows to the newly expanded Hogsmeade.

[1879] | For her third birthday, Sloane is given her first toy broom. Toddling around after her big brothers, in a quidditch-dominated family was hard without her own broom! It barely hovers a few feet off the ground, but she zips around the backyard with ease, terrorizing the family owl as she went.

[1880] | In a display of actual magic and not an accidental morph, Sloane manages to summon an apple from a nearby tree for a snack.

[1881] | Harrison heads off to Hogwarts and though Sloane is used to her brothers leaving in the fall, the more of them that leave, the more lonely she gets! She looks forward to their stories of school. She starts to long for her turn, though it is a ways off yet. She starts with a governess for schooling and is less than thrilled, she would much rather be outside adventuring.

[1882] | Sloane becomes more aware of her metamorphmagus abilities, and tries to harness them with little to no luck. There has to be something to occupy her while she’s stuck at home with only Wallace for company! The ability continues to plague her to the current day as it never cooperates when she wants it to, but always manages to pop up when it’s least wanted! Rufus graduates and joins the professional quidditch league.

[1883] | Sloane breaks her arm for the first time after falling out of a tree in an attempt to give herself bird wings using and fly. Little did she know she couldn’t even do that if she wanted, but that didn’t stop her either! Her governess tries to teach her more focus in an effort to help, to little avail.

[1884] | Wallace leaves her as the sole child at home and Sloane turns a little grumpy about it. He’s not the best company, but he’s better than the governess! She turns even more rebellious, often found in the garden avoiding her studies, working on being able to change her appearance instead. Plague and doom this summer, but fortunately the Bixbys come out unscathed, though Rufus did catch

[1885] | Alvin graduates and Sloane is thrilled to have him home during the year. He wavers between following in the family footsteps of quidditch, but find himself fascinated by making brooms instead and soon finds an apprenticeship with a well-known British broom maker.

[1886] | Sloane breaks her arm again, this time test-flying a broom that Alvin had been working on (without his permission of course) and lots of trouble ensues. She pouts her way through it, thinking that if it was a good broom she wouldn’t have fallen, because she is an [i]excellent[/i] flier! Her mother disapproves of her thinking, while her father finds it amusing. Fiona worries that her only daughter will end up a cripple before she even reaches Hogwarts while Carson knows she’s just trying to keep up with her brothers.

[School Year 1887-88] | HOGWARTS HO! Sloane is quickly sorted into Gryffindor and makes fast friends with her roommates. She tries out for the house quidditch team and doesn’t make it; she’s devastated and disappointed. She does join the club quidditch team instead and vows to try again next year!
