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.

Billie Farrow

Full Name: Wilhelmina "Billie" Farrow

Nickname(s): Billie, but it's the only name she'll go by

Birthdate: June 28, 1879

Age: 9

Occupation: Shop Hand & Adventurer

Blood Status: Halfblood

Residence: Hogsmeade. She sleeps here and there (particularly the slums) and flits about the town.

Hogwarts House: Unknown

Wand: Unknown


Anna Farrow (1856) - Religious Muggle Mother

Joe Farrow (1876) - Muggle Older Brother

Gideon Ollivander (1854) - Secretly Her Father


Billie is fairly short and stands about 3 feet and 11 inches. She's fairly scrawny and gangly. Her hair is chopped short into a messy mop of light brown with streaks of blonde. She has a very boyish and androgynous appearance. Ever since her mother threw her out, she has been dressing and generally passing herself off as male. She is very guarded about anyone finding out. Her brother, Joe, knows, but he hasn't told anyone, allowing her to hide from their mother and start over. Her clothing is worn and consists of various hand-me-downs slapped together. At the moment, they are baggy, and she's forced to roll her sleeves and pant legs up. She is fairly dusty as most children are.
Billie's schooling is patchy at best, but she possesses her own sort of street intelligence, and she is very creative. Some folks would call her odd at the way she prefers the presence of animals over people, but they seem like the safer option. She isn't fond of people touching her, nor does she toss around her trust easily, but she is a very loyal friend once you get to know her. She distrusts and is afraid of women the most. Despite the cruelty of her family, she is a very kind child, even if she tends to make mistakes that might make people think otherwise. Ever since she started posing as a boy, she's felt more free and comfortable with herself. However, even she realizes that it cannot last, so she is simply enjoying life. She likes to be helpful. She loves baked goods. Her favorite color is green, and she's good at climbing.
She's befriended a part-kneazle that is either a stray or someone's wandering pet. Either way, she's named it Pounce and tries to be sure she has some sort of food for it.

She has a little, black kitten named Soot!

Anna Farrow spent much of her young life in a village not far from Hogsmeade. There, she met Thomas Farrow, the son of a smithy whom she very quickly fell in love with. With him, she had her first child, Joe. The three lived happily until Joe was around 2, and Thomas was killed, hit by a carriage in the streets.

Thrown into grief, Anna changed, resorting to drinking and gambling. It was during that time that she was charmed by the wizard who ended up getting her pregnant with Billie. Much of Billie's early years consisted of them moving from place to place while Anna struggled to hold down a job.

Around when Billie was 5, Anna finally landed a steady job as a house maid. It was then that the young girl started to show her first bouts of accidental magic. At first, her mother brushed it off as going batty, but soon it became apparent that her daughter was the root cause.

Anna thought perhaps she could beat it out of her child, but, when that didn't garner any results, she sought help from the church. However, after a certain, disastrous episode of accidental magic that ended with Anna getting into trouble with her employer, Billie was cast out.

Eight-years-old and alone, the girl cut off all her hair and acquired boys clothing so she could assume another life and find employment easier.

Although an honest sort of child, she constantly ended up with the wrong crowd of friends and became a rat catcher. She is quite good at her profession, but it pains her to have to kill the poor animals. Once, she made the rats in someone's kitchen just disappear. Unknown to her, they, later, were found in the house next door.

Not long ago, she wandered on foot from their village to Hogsmeade where she found herself among other individuals who were also different. Now, she scampers about town, making friends, clearing people's households of rats, and trying to start a new life for herself.

-Billie is always enthusiastically looking for work. She runs errands, does odd jobs, gets rid of pests, etc.

-She's usually fairly dirty and rough and tumble in her play and work.

-More often than not, she's seen running instead of walking.

-She doesn't have parents/guardians actively in her life, and she lives on her own.

-She's very new to the magical world. It becomes quite apparent when new things catch her by surprise, and she goes slack jawed.

-She doesn't particularly like to be touched.

-Billie is not a boy like she pretends to be. Nor does she admit she prefers being perceived as male.

I don't have any characters who I think will fit any of these. Unless you think Gilbert Whitechapel will fit in somewhere.

However! I'm planning on creating an adult female character in the near future, so, if you're really jonesin' for one of these dramas in particular, let me know, and I can create her with that in mind.

Also, I can't wait to read any of these.
