    1868. Twins are born--a brother and a sister.

    1870. Rose displays her first sign of magic.

    1877. The family moves to Hogsmeade in the summer. Rose receives her Hogwarts letter and goes off to school in the fall. She is sorted into Ravenclaw, and soon proves herself to be a decent student.

    1879. For her third year, Rose chooses Arithmancy and Earth Magic as her electives.

    1882. Rose sits her OWLs and does very well. She chooses to continue on with Charms, Potions, Herbology, Arithmancy and Astronomy.

    1884-Present Rose graduates and debuts, but the disaster of a summer destroys both her father's shop and her chances of having a proper season. She seeks a job in the Ministry as a secretary in the Department of Magical Transportation, though she's more interested in finding a rich husband than she is anything else.
