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.

Begonia Belby

Full Name: Begonia Irene Belby

Nickname(s): Uh stay tuned. (B?)

Birthdate: July 26th, 1867

Age: 21

Occupation: Debutante

Blood Status: Pureblood

Residence: London, England

Hogwarts House: so very Gryffindor

Wand: Cypress, 11", phoenix tail feather

Family: Cygnus Belby | Father, b. 1818
Antiope Belby nee Westerman | Mother, b. 1828
Ephraim Cyrus Belby | Brother, b. 1852 - Known Werewolf and family
Isaiah Belby | Brother, b. 1855 and family
Iris -- nee Belby | Sister, b. 1860 and family
Major Belby | Brother, b. 1864
Similarly to her brother, B is tall and skinny, standing at 5'6". She is slender and angular in build, but has soft, feminine facial features. She would likely be considered prettier if she did not have a shock of bright red hair, and freckles down her arms.
B is left-handed, but at her mother's bidding writes with her right. She is mostly ambidextrous in wandwork. She wears natural colors, but avoids greens so that she does not look 'like Christmas.' She dresses well and has a tendency to smirk.
Bold. Reckless to a point. Loyal. Earnest. Begonia wears her heart and every other emotion she has right on her sleeve, and is the sort of person who you either like or don't like, right away.
Born in 1867, Begonia was the final of the Belby children, and as the baby, a tad spoiled. Her childhood was benign if largely uninteresting, and punctuated only by her elder siblings entering and departing from Hogwarts. (Also, Ephraim's marriage in 1873!)


In 1878, B goes to Hogwarts and surprises absolutely no one by being sorted into Gryffindor, given her reckless precociousness etcetera. and finds herself very much at home. She adores her roommates and makes fast friends, and gets herself a reputation for being a bit fierce. She very much enjoys practical magic as well, but does not excel as much academically as Ephraim and Iris do. (Or one of her favorite people, Marlena Scamander.

In 1883, Cyrus manages to be attacked by a werewolf and is very publicly outed as one of the creatures by the newspaper. Begonia is not sure what to believe, nor what to do - her brother's so much older than she is that they've never been spectacularly close, but her instincts towards loyalty make her want to stand by him. Still, the family ruling is silence, and Begonia reluctantly complies. When she returns to school in the fall, she finds that many students are no longer talking to her.

Marlena still is, though, and having exchanged so many letters with her over her deeply mediocre summer Begonia is even more fond of Miss Scamander. #bisexualrealization. This fondness ultimately culminates in an encounter in a literal closet, and a prefect opening the door only for topless Begonia to spill right on out. Excellent.

The rumors are unproven but are mostly about her, and the summer after her sixth year is even worse than her fifth. When she returns to school B is careful to never be alone with Lena, lest her mother strangle her, but it breaks her heart. She finally debuts in '85 and has little success, whether this is because of Ephraim or because of mackin' on ladies, she can't say. While her NEWT scores aren't bad, her mother would never let her get a job after the closet incident.


Can someone just marry her so she can stop stressing her mother out, please?

* Begonia's brother was turned into a werewolf.
* Begonia was rumored to be caught in a state of undress in a closet with another girl.
* Begonia is bisexual. Although if you know the might, you may guess.

The corners of Begonia's mouth twitched into a half-smile. Her face flushed pink nonetheless - my first kiss made her think of Lena kissing, which made her think of kissing Lena, which reminded her, of course, that she really wanted to kiss Lena. The mistletoe above them wanted her to kiss Lena, too. And was that really so terrible?

Yes. It was, because then Lena would know that Begonia liked her so much, and then everything would be ruined. Everything.

"I've never kissed anyone either," Begonia admitted quietly. She thought that February had, but she had never, and still she could imagine exactly how Lena's lips would feel on hers.
