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 ( Submit your own)

Questionable Friend/Crush for Philip Aymslowe.
When your mum thinks you're gay for your best friend (but you probably are)
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

SWP 8: Choose Your Own Adventure
Site-Wide Plot 8: Choose Your Own Adventure

At somewhat of an impasse, the Ministry has decided to open up calls for volunteers to take the train into Irvingly - (unless they're already there) - to try to find - and ideally stop - the source of the fog. These volunteers will be sorted into teams and sent off. There is a significant monetary reward for successful teams, in the hopes of attracting the qualified.

To participate:

- Sign up no more than three characters using the following form by Sunday, July 1st at 9:00 P.M. EST:
[b]Name:[/b] @"First Last"
[b]Education Level:[/b]
- Participating characters must be: fully or part human, and over 17, because the Ministry isn't interested in accidentally killing children.
- Threads will be started on July 3rd-5th for every 'team.' For format examples, see The Hogsmeade Trail threads, ex. this shiny one I pulled from the archives.
- By participating, you're committing to post about one+ times every 48 hours in the thread! This is flexible ish, but if you take longer than 72 hours you risk being concussed and sent back to Hogsmeade/London/from whence you came.
- A note that there may be some not-death not-permanent-maiming harm visited upon your character as part of participation in this event. (If you want death or maiming, well, we can also make that happen.)
- Contact the Staff team if you have any questions about this.

And maybe one more depending! I need to hear back from Bee about something first xD

Nevermind, just two for me. As you probably anticipated, I'm 100% down with whatever level of chaos you want to inflict, including permanent consequences. No death though, please & thanks.

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?
