|Muggles' Guide to Harry Potter - Character|
Miss Fawcett is a member of either Ravenclaw or Hufflepuff house, possibly in the same year as Fred and George Weasley.
Role in the Books
A very tenuous link leads us to believe that Miss Fawcett was present at Hogwarts in Harry's first year. The book Quidditch Through the Ages, written by the author of the series, has a library card on the fly-leaf, with a list of students who had taken the book out and the due dates. One "S. Fawcett" had borrowed the book, and was to return it on the 16th of September. "H. Granger" and "H. Potter" had borrowed the book after that, and Hermione has the book out of the library during Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.
Miss Fawcett is mentioned in passing as one of the students that Professor Lockhart helps to her feet after the grand chaos of the Dueling Club. "Careful there, Miss Fawcett..."
In conversation with Mr. Weasley just before locating the Portkey to take them to the Quidditch World Cup, Amos Diggory mentions the Fawcetts had been unable to get tickets. Given the author's propensity to re-use characters, we can guess that this refers to Miss Fawcett's family, and thus guess that she lives near the Weasley home at Ottery St. Catchpole.
Fawcett is penalized ten points by Professor Snape when she is caught hiding in a rose bush with one Mr. Stebbins at the Yule Ball.
Relationships with Other Characters
Miss Fawcett was caught by Snape kissing Stebbins behind a Rose Bush during the Yule Ball, so it can be assumed she was going out with Stebbins.
One thing to be aware of here is that either there is some confusion over whether Miss Fawcett is in Ravenclaw or in Hufflepuff, or else there are two Misses Fawcett, one in each house. As noted above, Professor Dumbledore says "Miss Fawcett, of Ravenclaw." At the Yule Ball, however, when Professor Snape is wandering around the rose garden, blasting apart bushes, he flushes out a snogging couple, Fawcett and Stebbins. Addressing the fleeing girl, Snape says "That's ten points from Hufflepuff, Fawcett!"
Assuming there is only one Miss Fawcett, the fact that she had attempted to enter the Tournament would suggest that she is not quite of age, as Fred and George Weasley are; this puts her firmly either in the Twins' year, or in Harry's, as the Twins are approximately one year older than Harry.
