Victorians could hire 'professional mourners' to attend their loved one's funeral. These people would partake in the procession and were not allowed to speak, just look awfully sad! — Rune

"The Prodigal Sister" for Ophelia Devine. Faked deaths, scandal, and schemes!
Kristoffer was going to be great at this, because he was great at everything. Also his memory was greater than everyone else's, because he bet no one else had ever lost their virginity somewhere exotic like Morocco. Hell, he bet no one else had even lost their virginity. Inexperienced losers.

*Tries to be Political*
April 11th, 1888 — Hogsmeade Hall, Ministry of Magic Open House
Ligeia had no interest on politics and such had no desired to be here. But Mrs Baudelaire insisted that if she ever wanted to be one of the influential socialite – and not just some boring housewife like Antigone or Leonie – she had to at least be aware of issues of their society and know who were running the Ministry. Also to maybe snatch the attention of a bachelor and marry her off but Ligeia doesn’t know that. She hoped that her father would be against it but he didn't seem to care whether she accompanied them.

While she’s here, she might as well act like she is interested. “Tell me, how is Minister Ross since being placed at his position? Has there been notable changes at your work?” She asked monotonously to the man whom she assumed was a Ministry employee.

If there was one person to not ask about the state of affairs at the Ministry, it was Finnian. While he was a lawyer (which, by nature, was a position that should have some knowledge about the struggles the administration was facing at least legally), he kept himself so very focused that one might argue that he wasn't focused at all. If he let his attentions wander to the context of his work, rather than the work itself, he'd find himself distracted and promptly fired.

Or at least that was Finnian's logic.

"Uh, things haven't gone up in flames yet?" he responded absent-mindedly before even turning to look at the woman who asked it. When he did, however, he was blinded by her pretty blonde curls and oh-so-curvaceous figure.

Damn, she really was gorgeous. "I mean— He's a great boss. Amazing, even. Unless you don't like him; then I guess he could do better," he rambled, a bright smile stretched across his lips.

It wasn’t the answer that she wanted but she couldn’t blame him if he didn’t care for his boss much. Neither did she but she didn’t want to look out of place. Not setting the place on fire was a good sign. “Oh it’s not that I don’t like him. I don’t really know too much about him to form an opinion.” She said truthfully, though she might have liked him if he didn’t abolish the half-breed ban but she wasn’t saying it out loud. “But if you say he’s great then maybe he is.” She added with a small smile as she looked directly at him.

Finnian was torn between thinking it was endearing that she had no political opinions and wishing she did. He had no desire to carrying on a conversation that he wasn't all that well-informed about, but neither did he wish to speak to a woman who knew more than he did. Ugh, why did life have to be so hard?

"I suppose you're a debutante then? I can't imagine why a pretty young woman like yourself would be, well, here." Finnian was definitely not a pretty young woman, and he didn't even knew why he was here!

Ligeia appreciated that he changed the topic. Truthfully, she had no desire to be talk about it further because she could care less. Maybe if women were allowed to vote then she’d cared more. She was at least good at pretending she knew and cared for it.

Her cheeks turned red when he called her pretty. Compliments from men weren’t rare for her but it was still embarrassing to hear when he said it so smoothly. She nodded. “I’m accompanying my parents,” Who were probably well-versed with how the ministry works –especially her father. “How about you? Is it mandatory for the employees?”
