I have wondering about house-elves go about being...'made' a lot lately. I assume they reproduce the way any other magical creature, but I wonder just how common this is. Are there laws about house-elves and reproducing (I remember how Lupin was so nervous about being a werewolf and having kids), or are the elves masters just expected to oversee that kind of thing?

This topic is quickly going to a very dark place reminded me of the horror stories of American stories.

Other off topic questions that go along with this. What is the average lifespan of the common house-elf? How long does it take for a house-elf to reach adulthood?

But I would still love to hear some feedback.
