I'll teach you

Myfanwy assumed they were now talking about a student named Holland (she could be wrong, she wasn't certain she was following this conversation all that well). Rose said, “They just aren’t a boy or a girl,” like was the most normal thing it the world. Myffi looked at her, still not sure if Rose was winding her up.

“What do you mean? They've got no parts?” she enquired, not bothering to lower her voice. “Like a Barbie doll?” If she was born without parts Myffi didn't think she'd like people to know about it. She's just decide she was either a girl or a boy or whichever she looked and sounded most like, and run with it from there. Although maybe it was more fun to just not pick a side and be whoever you felt like that morning. Maybe that's why Holland wanted to be called a them instead of a he or a she, to save people the hassle of switching all the time. Whatever, it didn't even matter. Myffi would be friends with a girl or a boy or a hermaphrodite as long as she had a roommate.

“So what are classes like?” Abrupt subject changes were a great way to keep conversation stimulating. Rose had already talked a little bit about Pearl Street and her best friend and Holland and Quidditch but she hadn't said anything yet about classes. Or professors. “I've been to Muggle school all my life, and my Dad has been my magic teacher in all my subjects, at evenings and weekends and in the holidays. He says I might be a little bit behind to start off with but I'll catch up quickly.” Myffi wasn't worried. She found potions difficult and boring but her wandwork was quite good really. She'd been keeping up with the Hogwarts class levels so RMI work couldn't really be too different, could it?

        Out of nowhere, fake-weirdo hippie girl started asking questions about - Holland’s parts ? Rose was, unusually, stunned into silence. She had known Holland for five years and hadn’t once thought... more
        • Why? - Myffi, Wed Aug 9 09:52
          Rose said classes were ‘okay’ but she didn't sound very sure about that. Maybe she really liked school and was trying not to sound like a swot, or maybe she was really really bad at classes and she... more
