Babies comprise one of the two ages of children. By deduction,
we must assume that children of other ages do exist. Apparently
there is a custom that children between the ages of three and eleven
should be neither seen nor heard. The gender of the baby depends of the
Potterians from whence they sprang. Hermione Granger
and Ginny Weasley/Potter do their level best to cure Female
Characters, Lack thereof for the next generation. But they
are not being aided by Remus Lupin and Sirius Black,
who assiduously add little boys to the population. Severus Snapeís
firstborn will be a daughter while Dracoís will be a son. After
which they get to do what they want. See pregnancy, and relatives, long
Bathrooms in HPFH appear to be quite rare. There are, alarmingly,
only two bathrooms in Hogwarts, and only one is used for bathing.
Moaning Myrtleís bathroom exists only to allow female Potterians
a place for solitary weeping. We admit that the atmosphere is certainly
conducive to it. The prefectsí bathroom IS used for bathing. Among other
things. Unattached mature tourists should not miss the bathroom, as it
is an excellent opportunity for sex. We have been unable to ascertain
where normal students go to bath. See rape, pregnancy, privacy, birth
control, and Hermione Granger
Beds have not been produced in HPFH in several hundred years.
They are constructed of old wood, possess a canopy and/or drapes, and
will inevitably have distinctive sheets. It is regulation in HPFH that
no bed shall have boring cotton white sheets. Silk sheets are much more
common here than in our own world. We can only assume there is a magical
way of producing them that can be afforded on a teacherís salary. We know
that cleaning issues are solved by the prevalence of House Elves.

Beauxbatons has a wonderful supply of possible exchange/transfer
students. They will have just the correct touch of continental
charm and maybe even an alluring accent. Students from this school
are not nearly as likely to have guilty pasts as
those from Durmstrang, but they occasionally have painful
Bill Weasley is either a confirmed bachelor, despite his amiable
personality and dashing good looks, or is gay.
Birth Control is rather spotty among Potterians. Older
tourists will be pleased to know that it is only an issue for the younger
set. Perhaps it is assumed that adults are able to take care of themselves.
It should be noted that this does not apply to the Weasleys, who apparently
possess superhuman fertility. See pregnancy
Bloody Baron evidently has a soft spot in his heart for abused
young women. You will only become acquainted with him if you have booked
a tour with one or are one yourself.
Boggarts are the creatures to be most feared by tourists bearing
shameful and/or traumatic pasts. You will meet them in a corridor.

Boys make up the majority of the population in HPFH. See Female
characters, lack thereof
Broomsticks are believed to come in a variety of models, but the
observant tourist will be given cause for doubt. They appear to fall into
two categories: the old temperamental variety that will throw their rider
off in such a way that the riderís romantic interest can save them and
the innovative variety that have just hit the market and cost a vault
full of galleons. You will be gratified to know that your love
interest purchases you one of the latter variety when your broom of the
former kind breaks.
