height: five foot nine weight: currently unknown as he is not concerned with it general description: Miles is a unique individual though he stands at a rather typical five nine. His build is decent for his stature, though he's not extremely fit, he still carries his weight across his frame well. He keeps his hair long, usually down to just above his shoulders, and rarely tied back, though occasionally he'll wear a beanie on top when he's outside and its cold. His eyes are a shaded and masked brown. He learned to not let his eyes give him away any more, they are more like empty and muddy waters than windows to ones soul. The voice that he carries is generally one most would not fit with him upon first meeting him. He is very soft spoken, but yet its in a way that commands attention in his classroom, for the most part, he never raises his voice. With as soft spoken as he is, many have speculated he was hit with a poor sonorus spell. face claim: tyler blackburn

When confronted, she lied about it to his face, which at the time he believed. What makes the fact worse was that night when he came home, he was the one that discovered a horrible find. And the letter she left for him, did not make things better. She loved him, but she couldn't honestly love him carrying another man's child. A man that refused to accept it and it tore her up, and she ended everything, he still has nightmares about finding her in their home. boggart: characters biggest fear The biggest fear that haunts this professor is that he's not true to himself. He knows that every relationship causes him to change. He's scared this path of constant change will end bad for him, death doesn't scare him, but causing his own terrifies him. mirror of erised: three desires First and foremost desire is to find himself and be happy with who he is. Not always bending to be what others tend to want him to be.
Second, after finding his real self, he wants a partner that will love him for who he is, and never try to change him.
Lastly, he wants a family. A family that is his own, one he loves, not like the family he was raised in. amortentia: four scents lavander ambrosia pine pomagrante veritaserum two secrets He knows he had some involvement with his first fiance’s death. For they argued before he left to go out to the job he had at that time. Things were said that shouldn’t have been said, he didn’t physically do anything, but he knows that his insecurities played a major part, even though he had been cleared involvement.

mother: Lela Little nee Crowe nee Halle / Sasha Crowe nee Van Wyck father: William Crowe / Anthony Little siblings: Two sisters, 3 step brothers, 1 step sister and 3 half brothers pets: miniature lynx named Coon history: It started long before Miles was born, but we’ll skip most the details and give a brief start. His father William Crowe, whom was part Native American and moved to London when he was only 16, and not long after met a young beauty by the name of Lela Halle. The two started seeing each other, and Lela’s sister Sasha never came to like William, driving the two sisters apart. But what really drove the wedge between the sisters was when Lela became pregnant shortly after her marriage to William. It was the first of the family for them. Both were girls. Lela was almost constantly pregnant, and the third pregnancy yeilded a boy, they chose to stay with uniquer names than common, naming the boy Lafayette Miles Crowe. But before the boy was born, William and Lela divorced, leaving him and his sisters to go constantly between the two familys, until William decided he needed time with his new family after not even a year after the two split.
Lela was beyond upset at her ex husband, that he would abandon the children so easily. She went to being a single mother of three with difficulty. She took on another job to afford what they needed. She still tried getting William to own up to his father duties to the children they had together, but after two years without any response, Lela made sure she had permanent custody of the children, and William paid for it. It helped, well would have if the money actually came in.
She eventually decided that the children, Miles included needed a father and started dating, but never introducing the men to the children. Until she met Anthony Little when Miles, her youngest was 5. Miles was unsure of the man, who came with a couple children of his own, whom Miles immediately didn’t like, but his sisters liked. Soon it was Miles that was always in trouble, blamed for almost everything. He even started losing touch with his mother, causing the boy to become quiet. He still did well in school, but he was almost always day dreaming there as well. He spent many hours in his room at home, to be alone, though his siblings tended to intrude.
Things changed at the age of 11, when he received a letter addressed to him. It confused him and his parents, but after a little deeper explination from a staff member at the school. It was decided that Miles would be allowed to attend this school of magic. They hoped to see him on holidays, which was when things got confusing for Miles. Jus before he went off to school his father wanted to now see the children he left years ago for his new family.
But he boarded the train and quickly made a few friends, but he was still more quiet than the others. Upon reaching the school itself he was in awe as the sorting started. He heard his name called, and others snickering at his name, as they used Lafayette instead of his chosen name. Frowning he took the stool and got sorted to Hufflepuff, after the hat debated between Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff. Quietly taking his seat he met some of his housemates, that became his dormmates for the years at school.
He made it a point to be called Miles instead of Lafayette, and soon his first name almost forgotten by the students. His school years passed without much incident, his grades were good, and he spent the summers back with his aunt and uncle.
As the years passed, girls started seeing him differently, and he dated a few, but never became anything serious. Not until he started dating in Seventh year. Things were good between them, but he noticed that he was changing a bit for her, but he kept on smiling, not aware of what was really going on. When they finished Hogwarts, Miles refused to go back to his aunts, and rented himself a little one bedroom flat, to which his girlfriend moved in with him, and they changed to engaged. But secrets were kept, and Miles was still changing, he felt he still had to be someone else to make his bride to be happy.
But thats when everything bad happened. Shortly before their wedding, he found she couldn’t take the double life, and though she loved Miles, she wanted something more, and the fact she didn’t honestly know who fathered the child she carried, she ended her life, and the babies, and Miles found the body. He didn’t know how to react, the letter hurting more than the fact she was gone. He moved out of his flat and found another, in another town.
Before long he started dating other women, changing in turn for each one, in the end to have each one leaving him. By the time he was 24, he was done, he found he liked living alone, and got himself a cat to keep himself company. He worked odd jobs until Hogwarts asked him to take over the position of Ancient Runes Professor, to which he accepted, and packed up and moved himself and Coon, his cat, to Hogwarts. He’s in his second year teaching, and is enjoying teaching, and is working to find himself. Maybe he can find complete happiness, maybe a woman isn’t even what he needs. Maybe one day he can find his true self, but for now, he’s content being just Professor Crowe.

Welcome to Broomsticks & Fire! Feel free to have a look around and ask the staff if you have any questions.
THIS SITE IS CURRENTLY IN THE PROCESS OF BEING REBOOTED WITH A NEW PLOT.
When the plot and site is finished all current members will be emailed/PMed about the site changes and will
have the option of staying or leaving.
Welcome to Broomsticks & Fire! We are a post-potter rpg set in the year 2023.
Things have been pretty peaceful in the wizarding world.
That is, it was peaceful until an attack killed five aurors, one of them being Ronald Weasley,
beloved father, husband, and one third of the trio that had destroyed Lord Voldemort. Sure an auror's
job is dangerous, but to have five killed in one attack is almost unheard of anymore. It has several people
wondering if the Death Eaters are again at large. The Order of the Phoenix has been reactivated and is now being
headed by none other than Harry Potter himself, giving hope that their world can soon return to peace again.
Snow often covers the Hogwarts campus these days. Winter has begun and there is a sharp chill in the air. Better bundle up if you expect
to be going anywhere.
Amber is one half of your lovely admin team. She is in her twenties, has a bachelor degree in English Literature, and is

Molly Weasley, Mackenzie Reid, Xavier Merit, and Jason Wilde.
The other half of the admin team is Emma. On top of going to school and working, she finds time to pop on and do some posting
and application approving. She plays charlotte elaine maybury and Lucy Weasley

Happy Holidays! As a special treat we have revamped the site. If you notice anything off, let us know. Our new template is best viewed in IE and
We have re-opened the site! Hurrah! As you may have noticed, we have also added a new skin as well. "Love Struck - Second Edit" is the name of
our newest skin. We have kept the layout because it works well for the site. If you want to go back to the original skin, it should be labeled
as "Love Struck." Just a little note, the cbox may look a little out of place on that skin now as we have changed the colors to fit the new skin.
Also, if you haven't noticed. Our IC Cbox has been upgrated, so it now autorefreshes. Keep in mind that the IC is not a subsitute for threading
but a place to play in real time with your characters. Not everything (or anything) that happens in the cbox has to be part of the site plot.
