Hear, hear! (Bi and currently un-anything-gamous.) Though in Howl's case, 
"promiscuous" is a given, so the question of bi or not bi is the only one 
that arises.

I had this idea of a story in which Calcifer like miss Angorian could take 
human form (of either sex), and his contract with Howl was partly sealed 
through sexual means, and Sophie eventually found out about all this... It 
was sadly one of those stories I never managed to write, and now after 
guineapig BarbaCalcifer I fear it's been shot all to hell. :-)
