"I know archaic Latin"
Katie Whittemore is used by me - Muggleborn-Phoenix - in my Fanfiction series: The Katie Whittemore series.
The series center's on Katie's journey as she returns from living in London, England to her hometown Beacon Hills, California, where she learns that not everything is as it seems and that the very things she had been studying in London are real and running around the town.
After returning home from Bales College, Katie attends Beacon Hills High School, where she is re-acquainted with her childhood friend Danny Mahealani and her brother Jackson, who also served as her best friend. She enrolls during the second semester of her sophomore year. She lives with her parents Ashley and David Whittemore, and across the street from Isaac Lahey. Her house number is 890, and the house itself is strikingly modern in design.
Katie is notably a good student. She rivals Lydia at social status and is considered beautiful by most guys at school.
For the first sixteen-years of her life, Katie believed that David Whittemore was her biological father, until it was revealed in [We Might Fall] that she was in fact conceived after a drunken one-night stand between Raphael McCall and her mother Ashley.
Katie's birthday is June 18th, 1995.
Finding An Anchor Edit
Finding an Anchor is a mini season which appears prior to the start of the main story of the Katie Whittemore series. It centres on Katie and her brother Jackson, as well as their mother Ashley.
At a young age, Katie suffered with an accute phobia of water. A problem which had developed after she nearly drowned in the lake outside of their family's cabin in the woods. Despite having other fears, like spiders and moths, Katie found her aquaphobia was something that she failed to over come... until Jackson decided to help.
Whilst on summer vacation, Ashley Whittemore found her youngest child watching her brother playing in the lake and, curiously, asked why she would not join. Katie reveals her fear to her mother, prompting Ashley to explain that she too once had a phobia - the phobia of flying, but she had held to overcome it, and she believed that Katie would also overcome her own fear of water.
Intending to help his sister, Jackson took Katie's hand and led her into the cool waters. He constantly reminded her that he was there, and that she would always be safe with him around. He promised her that he would never let anything bad happen to her, and Katie believed him, following further and further into the water, at least until it splashed against her stomach.
With the promise that her brother would always be her anchor, Katie overcame her fear of water.
Ohana is a follow-on story from Finding an Anchor. It too takes place prior to the start of the main story of the Katie Whittemore series and centres around Katie and Jackson. It also mentions the Lahey family, mainly Mrs. Lahey, Camden and Isaac.
At the tender ages of five, Katie and Jackson are caught playing in the street by their neighbour Mrs. Lahey. She takes them home, and berates Ashley Whittemore for not being able to look after her children properly. Ashley promises that her children will be punished for their misdeeds, and Mrs Lahey leaves.
Inside the house, Jackson and Katie are fighting - as per usual. There is a smash and Ashley wanders into the living room to find an antique vase shattered on the floor. She demands to know what happened, resulting in another argument between her children. Putting an end to the fighting, Ashley grounds them both, resulting in a rebuff from Jackson, who states that she cannot punish him because she is not his real mother.
After sending her children to their room, Katie finds an old picture album from her family vacation in Hawaii. She finds one of her favourites and sneaks into Jackson's room to show him. She leaves the picture on the bed, tells him "Goodnight, big brother," and rushes downstairs to apologise to her mother.
Meanwhile, Jackson stares at the picture and realises that not all family is biological. He starts to understand that while he may not have been a Whittemore by blood, like Katie, but they are still his family.
