Did you know?

The Language of the Flowers was a popular method to express feelings where words might be improper, but did you know other means of doing so? Some ladies used their parasols, as well as their fans, gloves, and hankies to flirt with a gentleman (or alternatively, tell them to shove it!). — Bree

Ester Montgomery for Thomas Montgomery. The one that got away (with the pornographer...)
This boy, then. He wasn't new. Wasn't one of the worst people in the common room, those rotten rich boys - like Mr. Jailkeeper - who could not fathom a world beyond their own farts. Was a good working class lad, so he'd heard. Had a bit of a weird looking face, and a bit of a weird thing for preaching. Still.

A small but well-kept inn and pub, this has been the gateway to Diagon Alley for the past century. It is most often frequented by members of the lower and middle classes.

Hard Times by Questor Spryly
October 6, 2018 – 12:28 AM

Located on the north side of Diagon Alley (though with a linked entrance in Hogsmeade), it is the only magical bank in Britain, and is run by goblins. Gringotts is an imposing snow-white multistoried marble building that towers over the neighbouring shops. It is the place where British witches and wizards store their money and other valuables, in heavily-guarded vaults miles below ground. (Description credit to the HP wiki.)
House of Lytton
0 Topics   |   0 Posts

The newly-built House of Lytton is a rather ostentatious affair inside and out, arranged over several storeys. With a specialisation in enchanted and haute couture fashion, the store contains floors of fashion plates, sample dresses, accessories, and fabrics. In-house designers are on hand at all times, as are assistants, ready to make alterations or complementary tea, Behind the fashionable shop there is a rather more hectic atelier where the designs are made into reality by a team of talented seamstresses.
