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

WANTED:

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.

Aubrey Davis in The Under-Sofa

is it a crime to love too well?
To bear too tender, or too firm a heart, to act a lover's or a Roman's part?
Is there no bright reversion in the sky, for those who greatly think, or bravely die?

What is the IC timeline for fog expedition events? How should the people not on the CYOA be handling references to people who are?

I remember the Hogsmeade Trail was an open-ended timeline and those left behind in Hogsmeade were totally in the dark as to when/if people would return, but the nature of the staff posts was also a bit more timeline-fluid in that scenario (stuff like 'after days of wandering' that kind of "caught up" the IC timeline and OOC timeline in some cases).

For example, in Frederick Townsend's group thread only about twenty minutes has passed, so it's possible he could lose a leg or something an hour into the expedition and then get sent home on the first day. Is it safe for his wife to have threads set later in July assuming that he isn't back yet/she hasn't heard from him? Is everyone supposed to be returning on some certain day and we should avoiding threadding interested parties past that date? Should we just be vague indefinitely about the people on the CYOA trips if we're connected with them?

SO I have some plans to accommodate the timeline re: time passing weird in that thing I keep referring to as Stage 3, which you all will see soon, so it is totally reasonable to be vague.

If Meer loses an eye  falling in the lake because I forgot to post for 72 hours, though, she'd get sent home on July 3rd. So I guess my answer is unless a person is planning on having a character opt out early I'd adviiiise being very vague about the return time.

It's 1 AM and I'm not sure that answered the question! Lemme know xD
