* ''Fanfic/TheParselmouthOfGryffindor'' has a male example with Little Hangleton's barkeep/innkeeper, John Hanger, whose pub (''The Hanged Man'') is the knot of every gossip in town. Not that there's much happening in a little village, so he makes do by endlessly recycling the town's ''only'' interesting story (the decades-old Riddle murders) to no end, and making up ludicrous conspiracy theories about what few strangers pass through town.

Often used for exposition, since they know the business of ''everybody'' in town. They will say [[MaliciousSlander mean things]] about different characters (and each other when they're apart), and if they get bored may come into the foreground and mess with the main characters' lives so that their gossip can be more interesting. They may be responsible for GossipEvolution. In a CloseKnitCommunity, they may account for the way everyone knows about everyone else.

* ''GoneWithTheWind'' has quite a few of these, with Mrs. Merriwhether, Mrs. Meade and Mrs. Elsing filling the main part of the hens. However, a lot of other characters in the book can be considered gossipy hens as well, including Scarlett and Melanie.

Chances are, if your work is set in Victorian times, these characters will show up. Are often members of a GirlPosse, if the action is set in a high school. Sometimes serve as a GreekChorus. Compare ThoseTwoGuys and ChattyHairdresser.
