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

September 15th, 1888 — Private Residence in the Slums*

“It should be all better in two, perhaps three days,” Cyrus offered with a reassuring smile as he put away his supplies. “Doxy bites are unpleasant, but a reaction like this is only caused by a true allergy to them.”

The patient’s arm had swelled to thrice its normal size, which would have been quite alarming had the cause of the wound not been swiftly identified. The healer was quite certain it was uncomfortable, but would not be at all dangerous unless the wound became infected. That was, though, something of an “unless”—the smell of the house suggested an infestation of bundimuns, and Cyrus had had to dab rosewater under his nostrils on entry to stomach the task at hand. Even with that precaution taken, he would be glad to leave this place.

“You’ll be able to change the dressing?”

MJ is pretty nifty @ graphics, if I do say so myself!

Owain had not been sure what his cousin had needed when he had OWLed Owain and asked if he could come stay with him for a few days. Turned out he needed someone to help him around which Owain had not been wholy pleased with. The stench in his cousins abode was horrendous. 0

His cousin had always been a touch intolerable and this trait was only worsened by his condition. "I'll be here to help him with that," Owain assured, his cousin somewhat already dismissing the healers presence. "Is he unable to do anything for himself in the meantime?" Owain was not going to allow himself to take advantage of but if his cousin did truly need the help, he would buck up.

The smile he gave the lad was fleeting and perfunctory, though he was relieved the patient had someone on hand to provide assistance—many, in Cyrus’ experience, were not so lucky.

“There is no reason he should not be able to take care of his most basic needs without assistance,” the healer explained, “but it will do him good to have a second pair of hands about to ensure his condition doesn’t worsen. Do you live in the area?”

At first, Owain was relieved but that didn't last long as the healer said that it would do his cousin good to have a second pair of hands around. Ugh, he had been dreading hearing the healer say something like that. "I don't but I'll be staying here with him until he gets better. Family, you know," Owain said with a bit of a shrug.

He did know—or rather, he had known once. He gave a small, empty smile, for while he understood the notion, it had been far too long since he had had a similar experience.

“In that case, I shall remind you to send for me, should his condition worsen,” Cyrus informed the younger wizard. “Even a slight decline can be a harbinger of much worse to come—though I do not expect either.”
