So, the thing is: I really didn’t want to get into Palmer’s (Harry Potter’s real name, btw, I’ll add em and Nhi to the character page soon) assigned gender (this soon, or at all) because, not really relevant! But also: I liked this joke. And ultimately: I think my readers are mature enough that knowing eir assigned gender is not going to give them an “excuse” to misgender em. Because y’all are pretty dang cool.
Thanks for reading!

MARIA: You kissing strange women and Sam getting a girlfriend – these are things I should know regardless of my whereabouts!
PALMER: Actually, I’m not a girl.
MARIA: Oh, shit. Sorry, dude.
PALMER: I’m, uh, not really a dude, either.
MARIA: Oh God, sorry… new friend of Sam.
PALMER: Oh, I like friend! That’s what I should tell people that “F” on my driver’s license stands for.
